Aminul Islam Bulbul

To fans and afficionados of Bangladesh cricket, Aminul Islam needs no introduction. He captained the Bangladesh team in the 1999 World Cup. In the maiden Test versus India in 2000, he scored Bangladesh's first Test Century. His 9-hour 145 remained the highest Bagladesh Test score until recently broken by Mohamad Ashraful's 158 versus India in 2005. In the early days, Gordon Greenidge has described him as one of only three, top class batsmen in Bangladesh. He has been one of very few Bangladesh players to have played club cricket abroad. He was in England for the 2000 season, playing for USP (United Services of Portsmouth) and more recently has been playing cricket in his new home, Australia.
