Rabbi is a very good prospect. He was flagged up to me by Shahriar Nafees as they play together. I worked with Rabbi for a little while and can confirm he is highly talented and has good pace. He is much quicker now than in the clip above by the way and his run up is far better. I think he has a future in the game and would predict he is one for the top.

There was some talk of him perhaps being a standby bowler for Rubel (as he had been carrying some injuries) at the World Cup at one stage, this is how impressively he bowled in the nets. He joined us in Chittagong and was excellent. Rabbi is a 'skiddy' bowler and this can surprise people.

There are some technical things he can improve but basically he has many things going for him. A huge thumbs up from me
