Dollar apparently was the highest wicket taker though I'm not sure how since we always have an SLA bag the most wickets and a pacer by the name of Al Amin Hossain snagged 30+ at an average of 15 apiece. Doesn't have much pace on him but does swing it. Apart from destroying Zimbabwe in Bulawayo once, his int'l record is piss poor.

Kamrul Islam Rabbi is sposed to be a quickie - which in Bangladesh means bowling around the 140 kph mark. He's largely unknown although Ian Pont rated him highly.

Others I don't know about. The batsman everyone knows. Mominul had a 100 in the A team series in WI last season (along with Nasir), and Anamul was the U-19 WC's leading scorer, averaging just over 60. He's also hit 169 against a RSA Academy side which included Merchant de Lange a couple years ago. Sarkar is a binge scorer - can smash any attack for big runs one innings and little else the next 5 or 6.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
