Soumya Sarkar Soumya Sarkar Height: 1.83 m DOB: February 25, 1993

A left-handed batsman who has played twice in the U-19 World Cup (2010 & 2012), he started out as an all-rounder, but found his potential with the bat and was selected for the tour of Zimbabwe in an ODIs after an impressive debut in first-class cricket. It also brought him a spot in the 2015 World Cup squad, despite having played just one ODI. He was an integral part of the Bangladesh team which helped defeat India, Pakistan and South Africa at home in successive series. He made his debut in Test cricket in April 2015 against Pakistan, but failed to live upto the selector's expectations. He was dropped eventually but soon returned and has been a regular in the starting XI. His best performance came when he struck three consecutive fifties against Sri Lanka on their backyard.
