He has a beautiful leg spin bowling action and gets impressive revs on the ball. Bowled a beauty to get rid of Travis Head. I feel this guy has a lot of potential if Bangladesh let him develop.

Also, he Is known as a six-hitter in domestic cricket and currently boasts a strike rate of 245 in International ODIS 😎

He is tall. He is a leggie. He can hit big too (scored 20+ runs against Hasaranga once).

Great find for BD.
Bangladesh have needed a leg-spinner in forever. He has done fairly well for his low level of experience. Needs to be backed fully in limited-overs. One of Bangladesh's biggest weak points has been their overreliance on finger-spinners in the shorter formats. In this day and age, I think you cannot expect to win matches if you don't have a decent leg-spinner in your side.
