Abu Jayed: Career Highlights
Abu Jayed made his debut in international cricket in a T20I against Sri Lanka at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet. The visitors batted first and scored 210/4 in their quota of 20 overs. However, Jayed proved to be expensive as he conceded 45 runs in 4 overs and picked up just 1 wicket. As a result, Bangladesh faltered as they were all out for just 135 in 18.4 overs. Sri Lanka won the match by 75 runs.
Jayed has been an experienced campaigner in domestic cricket, particularly in the longer form. He’s also played the domestic T20 League, BPL, where he has showcased his smarts as a short-format bowler. Apart from being able to exploit the new ball, Jayed is also useful at the death where he has ability to unleash yorkers.
Close to five months after his T20I debut, he made his Test debut on 4th July 2018 against Windies at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua. Bangladesh recorded their lowest ever Test score as they were bowled out for just 43 in the first innings. Windies scored 406 and took a massive lead of 363 runs. Jayed took 3/84. In the second innings, the visitors could manage only 144 and lost the match by an innings and 219 runs.
Fitness and discipline are the only two things that Jayed needs to be wary of if he wants to have a successful career in international cricket. The talent is very much there in him. With Bangladesh not having much depth in the fast bowling department, he has a great chance of cementing his spot. It’s up to him to grab the chances that come his way.
