OTD| Bangladesh star all-rounder Mahmudullah was born in 1986

OTD Bangladesh star all-rounder Mahmudullah was born in 1986

On This Day | Bangladesh star all-rounder Mahmudullah was born in 1986. The experienced campaigner from Bangladesh, Mahmudullah, is celebrating his 38th birthday today. He has been one of the central figures in the exceptional rise of Bangladesh Cricket. In the last decade, Mahmudullah has played a key role in the batting order providing solidity and depth to the batting unit. 

The 38-year-old made his entry into international cricket in 2007 when he played his first One-Day international match for Bangladesh against Sri Lanka in Colombo. A month later he broke into the T20I team and the limited-overs format soon became his forte. Mahmudullah already displayed in the first few years of his international career that he was going to be a long-term option for Bangladesh in white-ball cricket. The talented middle-order batter had to wait for a couple of years to find his place in the Test team but he finally got his opportunity in 2009 when Bangladesh toured West Indies. 

The middle-order maestro

In the limited-overs format, playing in the middle is one of the most thankless jobs as the batter does not get enough opportunities but whenever he gets that opportunity, he has no option but to deliver. Mahmudullah has played that tough part for Bangladesh where he has led the middle order in critical situations to rescue his team. For a large part of his international career, he has been in that saviour role and whenever his team needed him to step up, he did that to perfection. 

The right-hander has rich experience in international cricket as he has represented Bangladesh in all formats of the game. Mahmudullah has played 50 Test matches along with 229 ODIs and 121 T20 internationals. He has over ten thousand runs in international cricket and along with players like Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mashrafe Mortaza, he has been a major force in pushing Bangladesh to the level that they are at right now in international cricket. Now that Mahmudullah has reached the last phase of his international career Bangladesh must look to groom his alternative in the middle order as it would not be an easy task to fill those big shoes in a short span.
