Mahmudullah Riyad was called the ‘Crisis man’ by the Commander Mashrafe bin Mortaza.

Born in Mymensingh, in the year 1986. He made his debut in ODIs and T-Twenty’s back in 2007, two years after entering into the Test squad. Though his career started as a bowler, he came out as a handy batsman lately.

He is now one of the ‘five pillars’ of team Bangladesh and he contributed in almost all the big wins of the team.

In the 2011 World Cup, he played a major role in the breathtaking two wickets win against England. Bangladesh climbed to the semi-finals in the Champions Trophy last year.

Mahmudullah won the match for Bangladesh with Shakib Al Hasan. Mahmudullah Riyad’s two successive centuries in the World Cup increased the power and glory of Bangladesh’s cricket.

Prior to the World Cup, there was not a single century of any other Bangladeshi batsman in the World Cup. Riyad saved Bangladesh from that shame.

The right-handed batsman has once again become the main protagonist. Under pressure, he took 43 runs which was the most important phenomenon of the match. He, therefore, captured the situation in style in the last four balls.

Mahmudullah will definitely be looking at the best innings from the side as the main protagonist from Bangladesh. Mahmudullah Riyad, is more known as the silent killer and finisher may be the X Factor in this world cup for Bangladesh.
