Not every Western person is over 6". Some of the Seppos here in Boston are a bit short compared to us in Australia.

Vegemite mate.

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

To be serious, I don't think height has remotely anything to do with it (Sir Don Bradman was only 5"7). Fitness does, though. But fitness is not dependent on height or weight.

I know the height of the players i mentioned is damn right.
To some of u here. let me make it clear. from pic u cant say hw much tall a person is coz for instance normally people who are 6 when stnding wid people of 5'10" seems same.

some of u shld try to stand lil near to a person 2inches taller.he wont look that tall.2-3 inches dont much differ and one more thing some ppl mite b tall but may not look like or some ppl may be shrt but may not look like.its all that posture which matters.

taposh and Sahrif is just 5'6". he is considered tall jst coz he seems to be but infact he is not. ppl who have seen him will noe this. Chacha was 5'6" too but never seemed so. So, its all about the posture. People who r lean will look to be taller than ppl who r lil fat like Chacha who seemed so short!!!!

I don't believe this. because:
1. Tehsin bhai standing below than the players.
2. The shoes players wore were minimum an inch or more than his sandles.

Nice pictures though. The cup behind one of picture, is it a fake one? Has to be. How tall is Billah bhai? Didn't think Rajin was that tall.

One more thing. I think Ash is smaller than Mushi, lol. Mushi is growing now.

Most westerners more than 6 foot tall where did you live, Holand?

Try 5 ft 9 (average)

Calves would be taller than you because they drink more milk. :p

Tonoy, there are a number of things you can do to increase your height.

1. Do vertical jumping, e.g. if you can in one day jump up to the ceiling (make sure you don't damage it), this will stretch your skeletal muscles and bone structure and also make it dynamic.

2. Hang on to something, e.g. monkey bar and just let your body stretch.

There are some other techniques, PM me if you want more information. You might be able to grow 2 inches or so.

With BD developing economically and set to become the next economic powerhouse of Asia insha'Allah, diet will improve and the younger generation will be taller (I see it here in London). This may seem shocking, but the Dutch were historically regarded as a short people but now they are the tallest major nation in Europe, apparently due to their high intake of dairy products. ( Montenegro is apparently the tallest nation in Europe, but Holland is the tallest major nation.)

I'm 5'5 1/2. I like to say 5'6 - not much of a drag there.

My brother's about 5'7 1/2 but he thinks he is 5'10. Go figure.
By the way, Malinga and Jayasuriya are not even 5'7.

pretty much. However, he looks built/tough. Which is why he makes those 4s/6s look so easy.
