View Full Version : Missing DoBs of Bangladesh cricketers

April 1, 2012, 06:52 AM
There are two Bangladesh ODI cricketers from the early days whose dates of birth are missing from the records of Cricinfo and Cricketarchive. Does anyone know any source which provide this info, or if it is possible, know someone who know the players themselves ?

Jahangir Shah Badsha
http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/55933.html , played 5 ODIs between 1986 and 1990

Hafizur Rahman
http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/55907.html played in both matches of the 1986 Asia Cup

For the players from earlier times, details are missing for many players, including big names like Yousuf Rahman Babu and Nazim Shirazi

Played with Badshah's son, Ali Shah. Jahangir was an all rounder and probably one of the best we had at that time. Don't really have a whole lot of details, but I think most of his heroics came in domestic cricket and against other associates. Then again, given how weak our cricket was back then and the very few ODIs we played, that probably was the case with most of our top cricketers.

Badshah also captained the national team IIRC.

As for DoB, no clue. :( Probably in his late fifties/early sixties now.
