The West Indies tour of Bangladesh kicked off this past week with the ODI series. Although the results were disappointing for the young squad of developing players, the tour has given an opportunity to many young players to experience international cricket and overseas cricket conditions. The first ODI featured six debutants for the first time in our history.
Akeal Hosein is one of the bright new hopefuls who put on a stand-out bowling performance in the first ODI, including the wicket of world #1 all rounder Shakib al-Hasan, and showed us that he is one to lookout for.
