Default How tall are BD players?

I was watching this tv prog. on cricket and they were saying how the BD team is probably the "shortest" team in intl. cricket! Does anyone know how tall our players are? Khaled Mahmud looks very short!

The likes of Sumon and Golla are about 5'8

On the other end of the scale Mashrafe is about 6'1 and Manjural 6'0

Just found out that Khaled Mahmud is 5'1. The other players arent that much taller than him so I don't think they are 5'8. More like 5'4 max...

Khaled Mahmud (wicket)

Age: 27
Team: Bangladesh
Style: Right hand bat; Right arm medium




At only slightly over 5ft in height, Khaled could legitimately make a claim to being the shortest bowler in one-day international history.

Is sometimes awkward because of his lack of height but no self-respecting batsman should have any trouble getting his medium pace bowling away.

Just watched one of my recorded BD matches, the other players are only about 2 inches tallers than him. So they are about 5'3 (Rajin Saleh, Hannan Sarkar etcetc). I have no idea where you got those high numbers from Habibul Fan.

Habibul_fan had the opportunity to measure out most of the BD players by person. Just look for his picture with Shujon in the picture section.

Yeah I don't think Mahmud is 5'1 got to be around 5'4 or 5'6. Masri is at least 6'1 or 6'2 I bet. Saleh could be 5'1 or 5'2 I have no doubt in that. BTW How short is tendu?

Mahmud is 5'4 with shoes on. Just read that. It was an article about the two captains standing beside each other at a conference. Vaughan is 6'2. That article also said that Mahmud is 5'1. Hmm!

If Rajin Saleh is 5'2 and Bashar is 5'8, have a look at this picture: http://banglacricket.com///cgi-bin/h...e.pl?artnum=37

Oh well, who cares anyway. Doesn't matter how tall or short they are as long as they perform!
