Abdur Razzaq

Abdur Razzak (Bengaliআব্দুর রাজ্জাক) (born 15 June 1982 in Khulna) is a Bangladeshi cricketer (not to be confused with Abdul Razzaq, a Pakistani cricketer). He made his first-class debut at Bangladeshi domestic level for Khulna Division in the 2001/02 season. Best known for being a tall left-arm orthodox spin bowler, he helped guide his division to the National Cricket Title in his maiden season. From there he was selected for Bangladesh A (training team for the full national squad) performing well against Zimbabwe A, including the excellent figures of 7 for 17 in one game in Dhaka.
Razzak was called into the Bangladesh national team for the 2004Asia Cup One Day International tournament, making his debut against Hong Kong in July. He established himself as a regular fixture in the squad although he was not a regular in the starting eleven. He made his Test debut in the second Test of theAustralian tour of Bangladesh in April 2006.
He has been called for throwing (straightening his arm during the bowling action) numerous times in the past at local level, an issue that resulted in him being reported by International Cricket Councilmatch referee Roshan Mahanama during the 2004 Asia Cup in an attempt to improve his bowling action. Later he worked on his action and changed it to a legal way. After that he was recalled by the selectors but could not find his form immediately. But slowly he managed to perform consistently and become a regular member of the national side.
