    Manjural Islam dies in road accident

    Didn't see this posted.

    Far too young, the youngest test cricketer to die, just 22 years.

    Bangladesh's Manjural Islam killed in road accident

    Cricinfo staff

    Manjural Islam, who played six Tests and 25 Odis for Bangladesh between 2003-04 and 2005-06, has been killed in a road accident. He was 22 and, as such, he has become the youngest Test cricketer to die.

    Reports say that he was on a motorbike in Khulna when he lost his balance and collided with an oncoming bus. It is believed that Sazzadul Shetu, a local cricketer, was also killed.

    A left-arm spinner, Manjural made his ODI debut in November 2003 at the age of 19 and took the wicket of Michael Vaughan with his third ball, the first time any Bangladesh player had taken a wicket in his first international over. He made his Test debut at Harare in 2003-04 but did not impress and had been sidelined since the series against India in December 2004. His best performances in the one-day format were a brace of four-wicket hauls, both Man-of-the-Match winning performances, to help level the series against Zimbabwe in January 2005.
    RIP. Terribly sad news.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Went on CricInfo to check the scores and as I clicked on the Eng-NZ link, I glimpsed the headline out of the corner of my eye. Immediately went back to see what it was all about. Was hoping that I had made an incorrect assumption when I saw the word "killed".

    Truly sad. Reminds me of that terrible feeling in my stomach when Ben Hollioake died.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    God, I've never felt as awful as that, but it's still terrible. I knew nothing about Manjural, but Ben Hollioake was such a lovely guy.

    I've got an autographed picture of Ben Hollioake. Wasn't a great cricketer, but he was certainly a great guy.

    Manjural Islam, like Hollioake, was such a promising cricketer with bat and ball.

    He was usually known as Manjural Islam Rana, to distinguish him from the Manjural Islam who played 17 Tests for Bangladesh as an opening bowler between 2001 and 2004.
