Bangladeshi all rounder Manjural Islam has been tragically killed in a car accident, at the age of just 22.
Also killed in the accident was first-class player Sajjadul Hasan. Police have said the pair were on a motorbike driven by Manjural, which lost control and crashed into the railings of a bridge in Khulna. Both had taken part in a domestic game the previous day, in which Manjural took four wickets.
The 22-year old played in 6 Test matches and 25 ODIs for his country, and was regarded as a talented player with both bat and ball. His last ODI was against Kenya in 2006, and his last Test against India in 2004.Discuss this news item in the Cricket Web Forums
