Some of that of that is very wrong.

Bashar is 5 ft 8-9


Sakib and Tanim are both 5 ft 11, theyre not much shorter than 6ft 1 Mash



Also taposh is described as tall and wiry, so he is probably around 6ft

I just met the players 3 weeks ago.

I may not have the exact height but I think I'm close enough.

Ganguly 5.11
Tendy - 5.05ft (not sure if this is 5"5 or 5.05)

I believe Rasel is around 6'. For International athletes [ even for a vertically challenged people, these are small guys ].

You would expect your sportsmen to be taller than the general population.

I just added some pics from Trinidad. I'm between 5'5-5'6. Look at the pics, judge for yourself. I wore sandals in pretty much all pics, that's about half an inch. Don't remember which players wore sandals and which had keds/tennis shoes on. You'll get a general idea.

Here's one with Masri. He is highly regarded as his teammates as one of the best in the world, forget Asia.

http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...shik031907.jpg

This is Nafees: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...s/Dsc01435.jpg
Very personable. You'd enjoy talking to this kid.

Mushfiq was returning from a shopping trip with the team, caught him at the lobby area: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Dsc01457.jpg

Tamim was a great sport as well. Wish I had talked to him about controlling his aggression and channeling it properly: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Dsc01458.jpg

This bat was signed by EVERY single players (except for Farhad ) of the team. I should have got me one of those. http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Dsc01462.jpg

This was with Tendu off course. I got to get me some the same kind of shoes. Makes him taller, doesn't it ? http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Dsc01466.jpg

With Aftab at the lobby: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Dsc01475.jpg

OUr very own Billah with Rasel and Razzak. http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/IMGP2353.JPG

Billah with Sumon: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Imgp2348.jpg

Me with Murali, I'm telling you guys, those eyes are freaking scary up close too, hehe: http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/Imgp2360.jpg

Billah and I with Ashraful : http://www.banglacricket.com/tours/2...0/IMGP2359.JPG

Great pictures, mate. Did you get a chance to speak to other teams - Pakistan and India? Oh wait, they're not here anymore. :p

Any other teams? OZ, NZ, SA, WI? England? (Though you probably needed to find Freddie in a pub somewhere? :p)

Funny Model/Actor Shimul is 6-4 1/2. But 6' is not small for any international athletes tho.
