However, Abul had already played quite a bit for the U19s and has the best Bangladesh U19 ODI bowling stats to date (Average is under 19 and SR is 23).
He has also been playing in the DPL for quite a few years. He was the top wicket taking pacer in his first two seasons and the fact that he plays for Abahani, who usually rely on foreign players should tell you that he's well known and well thought of in domestic cricket. He is probably the fastest bowler in Bangladesh right now.
However, he has been pretty ordinary in the few first class games that he has played, and in the T20 games (BPL and internationals) he has been somewhat of a liability.
Batting wise, no one could have predicted what happened yesterday, he hadn't shown any real indication that he was capable of playing such an innings, a quick 30 or 40 maybe, but not a Century. If it was Sohag Gazi or Alauddin Babu who made that inning then you could say they had previous form in the domestics but not Abul. I just hope this brilliant batting isn't undone by his bowling.
