Aftab Ahmed: A Brief Biography

Aftab Ahmed Biography


Aftab Ahmed Chowdhury is a Bangladeshi cricketer


He was born on 10th November 1985 in the city of Chittagong. He was, at one point, an integral member of the Bangladesh side in all formats of the game.


Ahmed is a right-handed batsman known for his stroke play and also has the ability to bowl right arm medium.


Ahmed has been a part of 121 matches in his career as a cricketer. He has 2,783 runs at an average of 24.41.


He has taken 21 wickets at a not so impressive average of 53.61.


Background


Aftab Ahmed first came to the attention of the selection committee of Bangladesh after scoring a 79 against South Africa in the Under-19 World Cup in 2002.


Ahmed was born and jas spend most of his childhood in Chittagong. Aftab was careless about playing international cricket in his early days and never really thought of taking it up seriously.


But it was his father a valiant fan of sports who wanted his son to become a cricketer.


Debut


He made his international debut at the 2004 Champions Trophy, and, despite scoring a duck was persisted with owing to good performances at Under-19 level for Bangladesh and kept their belief pinned to the youngster.


He soon made his Test debut against New Zealand. Ahmed made his T20i debut against Zimbabwe in 2006.


High Points


His potential, however, seemed not be seen at all, and his selection for the tour of England early in 2005 was evidence of the selectors' faith.


Ahmad repaid the fact in a blistering fashion at Chester-le-Street with a defiant, and a crucial knock of 82 not out, the highest score for Bangladesh in the Test series.


He also finished off the most cherished and historic one-day win over Australia at Cardiff, smashing Jason Gillespie for four and six to seal a victory for the Bangla Tigers.


His medium pace has some serious potential, as he showed to the cricketing world with an astonishing one-day haul of 5 for 31 against New Zealand in November 2004.


He also led the Bangladesh pack to a famous 3-2 series victory with an unbeaten 81 in the final match against fellow minnows Zimbabwe in January 2005.


Low Points


His selection was initially viewed with an eye of suspicion by the local media, who regarded him as something of a one-day showpony, and indeed his desire to be really explosive right from ball one has resulted in some all-too-brief performances.


Since showing some consistent performances for his side and, barring a run-a-ball 82 at the Riverside, he really had an extremely rough patch in his career, which became a cause of worry for the Bangladesh team as a whole.


Club Career


Ahmad has played for the Chittagong Division in his first-class career as a cricketer. He has also been a part of sides like Dhaka Warriors, Chittagong Kings, and the Dhaka Gladiators.


Retirement


His international career was put on hold when he joined the Bangladesh exodus to the rebel Indian Cricket League and was banned for ten years from playing international Cricket. In August 2014, he formally announced his retirement from all forms of cricket after a lean 2014/15 domestic season to focus on coaching.
