Nadif Chowdhury

Nadif Chowdhury was just 19 when he made his first appearance in Bangladesh colours, in their first Twenty20 match, against Zimbabwe in November 2006. Bangladesh won the match but Nadif did not make much of an impact, hitting just 10. A compact right-handed middle-order batsman who also bowls left-arm orthodox, Nadif went back to the domestic circuit and was part of the Bangladesh Cricket Board Academy side that played England A in February 2007. A decent run with Barisal Division and the Under-19s earned him a spot in the Bangladesh side for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa.
