Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar will leave Dhaka on April 13 for West Indies to play in an exhibition cricket match.

The country's premier batsman has been invited to play for the West Indies invitational XI against visiting South Africa in a two-day match on April 16-17 to raise funds for victims of last December's tsunami.

"One player from India and Sri Lanka will be in the West Indies selection. I'm really honoured to play for such a noble cause," said Bashar yesterday.

He is expected to return home on April 20.

7 diner practice faki, what else? not that there will be few extra ticket sale because of him (it would be ok in that case because the money goes to tsunami effected people).

He should be practicing his batting on a pitch full with devilish green grass on it.

Actually, if you saw the Test matches - and I was fortunate enough to catch em on TV - you would have picked up on the fact that Bashar was a big hit there. Both the spectators and the Windies player really applauded him and respected him.
