Mashrafe Mortaza International Career

Mortaza, one of the most successful right-arm seamer in Bangla. And one of the reasons for his country’s continuous rise in international cricket. Known as ‘Narail Express,’ Murtaza’s career has been hit. A bowler who can light up the pace, he has prevented several times by a sustained injury to Mortaza’s success.



The first real fast bowler to come out of Bangladesh after his Test debut against Zimbabwe. Built by Stockley, he can generate uncomfortable bounces in his stride. He was fascinated by Andy Roberts, who was coaching Bangladesh at the time and made a Test squad – his first-class game as well – being the 31st man to achieve it and third-person after 1899.

ODI and Test Career

After the Test debut, the injuries started to subside, and he found himself coming back one after another. Injuries to his back and knee forced him to miss most of the action, but in return, he broke Aftab Ahmed’s national record, taking a one-way take against Kenya in ODIs.

He came to the notice of everyone during the under-5 regional tournament in 2001, when he bowled fast, hit sixes, and showed some fielding skills. At that time, Bangladesh coach Andy Roberts was impressed, and Murtaza was named to the Test squad, which was his first-class game.



When Mashrafe Mortaza grabbed the brilliant wickets of Virender Sehwag and MS Dhoni in the 2004th and defeated India for the first time, he made a valuable 31* in the lower order. In the calendar year of 2006, Murtaza was the highest wicket-taker in the world in ODIs, collecting 49 wickets, including his personal best included 6/26.


The following year, he played an essential role in winning his team’s shock win against India in the ICC Cricket World Cup, taking 4/38 and being named Man of the Match 2007. When New Zealand visited Bangladesh in October 2008, Murtaza was part of Bangladesh’s first ODI win against the Kiwis, as they took 4/44 wickets.



In 2009, Mashrafe and Nazmul Hossain took five wickets for just six runs, sinking Sri Lanka to a new low.  In the 2012 Asia Cup, he struggled to bowl his ten-over quota due to an injury but became Bangladesh’s leading seamer with six wickets in four matches.

Mashrafe Mortaza Captaincy

He named captain of the Bangladesh team during the series against the West Indies in mid-2009. The team won the match and eventually won the series, but Mashrafe suffered an injury in the first match and remained out of the team throughout the series.

In the summer of 2010, he made his way to Bangladesh against England in Bristol. Bangladesh won that game, but Mashrafe was out of the field until February 2010 due to an injury. Shakib Al Hasan is captaining the rest of the game.


He later re-captained the home series with Zimbabwe in November 2014. After 2015 the World Cup, Mashrafe won the one-day series against Pakistan (3-0) and India (2-1) at home. The results sealed a place for Bangladesh in the ICC Champions Trophy in England.

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza Personal life

Mashrafe Mortaza was born in Narail district of Bangladesh. From an early age, he loved playing football and badminton. At times Chitra used to swim in the river. At the beginning of his youth, his interest in cricket grew, especially in batting. Although he is now more famous as a bowler, he is also known as ‘Narail Express.’

Everyone knows Bikapri Mortuza as a hilarious and generous person. Here he called “Prince of Hearts.” He met Sumana Haque Sumi while studying at the Government Victoria College in this city. He married in 2006. They have two children. He admitted to the Jahangirnagar University in Philosophy from 2003-2004.
