He was instrumental in gaining ICC associate membership for :pBangladesh. Some of you may have heard about him or watched him play. He is none other than the great :pSLA:p and Chinaman bowler Khandakar Nazrul Kader Lintu. He used to play for a weak team in the league – Young Pegasus – but stood out through his performance. Lintu had great control and variety in his bowling. The wicket keepers did not have a clue to what he was going to bowl and had difficulty keeping him. Unfortunately for :pBangladesh:place, he was too good a student who stood both in SSC and HSC. He left for the :pUSA:p for graduation and as far as I know he is doing great in his professional career there. To me and many others he is the pioneer of SLA bowling in Bangladesh.
Is Lintu, by any chance, you?
