Default Sixes in Bangladesh test cricket

I am trying to kill off a terribly boring Thanksgiving day by doing crazy things like this
In all 37 were hit by Bangladeshis and 83 were hit against them.

Six hitters for Bangladesh in test cricket :

7 Mohammad Rafique
6 Mashrafe Mortaza
4 Mohammad Sharif
4 Al Sahariar
3 Khalid Mahmud
3 Hasibul Hossain
3 Alok Kapali
3 Akram Khan
2 Habibul Bashar
1 Fahim Muntasir
1 Enamul Haque Sr

Bowlers who conceded these sixes :

7 D Kaneria
4 GW Flower
3 SB Joshi, RW Price
2 SCG Macgill, GJ Batty, DL Vettori, CD Macmillan, AF Giles
1 VC Drakes, SE Bond, RL Johnson, PT Collins, PR Adams, MJ Saggers, M Muralitharan, M Kartik, CS Martin, BT Watambwa

Those who have hit 3 or more sixes against Bangladesh :

11 ST Jayasuriya
7 Abdur Razzaq
6 ME Trescothick
5 Inzamam ul Haq
4 CL Cairns
4 CB Wishart
3 Yousuf Youhana
3 HH Gibbs

Bangla bowlers to concede the sixes :

15 Enamul Haque
9 Mohammad Rafique
8 Naimur Rahman, Manjural Islam
6 Sanwar Hossain
5 Mohammad Sharif, Fahim Muntasir, Alok Kapali
4 Mashrafe Mortaza, Hasibul Hossain, Enamul Haque Jr
2 Rajin Saleh, Mohammad Ashraful, Habibul Bashar
1 Tapash Baisya, Talha Jubair, Javed Omar, Aminul Islam

Mohammad Sharif at Dhaka in the last series was the first and only instance of someone hitting three sixes in an innings.

Against Bangladesh, Jayasuriya hit 6 sixes in his 145 at Colombo in 2002. Razzaq and Jayasuriya himself have hit 4 each.

The first two scoring shots of Rafique's career were a four and a six.

A detailed list is posted in 'Support'
