Its really great to see the names of Shahriar Nafees, Mashrafee Mortaza and Abdur Razzak standing amongst the greats of current world cricket.

Few paragraphs from the cricinfo review of 2006.

Shahriar Nafees is one of six batsmen to amass over 1000 runs in 2006. He scored 1033 at 41.32, with three hundreds and four fifties, to become the first Bangladesh batsman to score 1000 runs in a calendar year.
Guess who's taken the most ODI wickets this year? Not Murali, not Ntini, not even Pollock but Mashrafe Mortaza. He had 49 wickets at 20.46 in 2006 and also set a new Bangladesh record for best-innings figures when he took 6 for 26 against Kenya. Abdur Razzak is third with 45 wickets and at 17.95 each. Among the other bowlers only Nathan Bracken and Brett Lee have taken more than 40 wickets in 2006.
Australia were 2006's most successful one-day team winning 20 of their 29 ODIs and losing just eight. Hidden away in those stats is their Champions Trophy victory, a feat that had eluded them on the past four occasions. Bangladesh has the second highest win-percentage of the year with 18 victories from 28 matches - most of those wins coming against Zimbabwe, Kenya and Scotland but including a memorable victory against Sri Lanka at home.

Mashrafe Mortaza surprised us all by topping the wicket tables for 2006

You only play good cricket when you win/draw matches.
