Lightbulb Height of Bangladesh Cricket Players

I am very curious to know the height of players in our cricket team.

Please feel free to post the heights of every current player in the squad.


If any of u have personally met these players and would like to estimate their heights, that would also be acceptable since official figures are sometimes incorrect.

There is no doubt most of our batsmen are in the short end and opposing bowlers take advantage of that handicap. If you do not feel that is a disadvantage, feel free to tell us so and give some reasons.


But our pacers are pretty tall, i just dont know how tall shahadat and mashrafe might be, although I hear about their "tallness" all the time.

The issue of height is important and interesting, probably the most, when it comes to the Bangladesh team.

There have been threads on this in the past, perhaps the mods can dig this out?

For the record, I think Shahadat is our tallest bowler, I'm told he's 6' 4".

Does anyone know how tall Hasibul Hossain was?

I think, the pichchi is Ashraful, the one with watch is Shanto. So, it seems Shanto is taller than Mashrafe. Mashrafe himself is tall enough.

I give up! There are too many variables. Whether they are on high heels, had a haircut, if there were insoles in thier shoes or they were tip-toeing. These factor alone can account for atleast 1 inch. Face it, barring Mushrafi and Shahadat every BD palyer can be classified as a midget.

While we are on the subject of height....does anyone else feel that over the last 10 years, average height of the general population has increased? Maybe due to better access to nutrition, bettter hygiene, less pollution (consider the cng effect)..... Just a general perception of mine.

If we say that for a bangladeshi anyone above, say 5' 7" is above average, then we have a few fairly tall players. In addition to Mash and Rajib, Reza and Dhiman (formerly of BD now of DW), razzak, riyad and Zunaed are all quite tall. I think even rasel is about 5'7"...

Sakib,Tamim, and Razzal are about 5'10. Mash about 6-6'1, Rajib 6'3-6'4, Rasel is about 5'11.

You know what guys, if you want their EXACT heights, I can get it for you. But, what's in it for me?

Those who think most of our current players are about 5'7, need to get closer to the Tv or get a bigger one. Heck, just go to one of the games and walk up to them. You'll be pleasently surprised. By the way, this rule does not apply to Ash and Mushi (Sumon and Aftab from ICL).

IMO they are all one inch taller than that.
