Abdur Razzak, a slow left-arm orthodox bowler from Bangladesh, was born on June 15, 1982 in Khulna.

Rise to Glory
Razzak made his debut for Bangladesh in the 2004 Asia Cup One-Day International tournament.
In January 2018, he became the first Bangladeshi player to take 500 first-class wickets, which is a significant accomplishment in and of itself.
In 2008, an independent research team found that his arm bends 28 degrees when bowling, whereas the acceptable degree is just 14-15 degrees. This was the low point of his career. He was suspended as a result of this.
Razzak’s Record in Numbers
Razzak took 5 wickets in the third One-Day International against Sri Lanka, becoming the first Bangladeshi bowler to cross 200 ODI wickets.
He also holds the distinction for being the first Bangladeshi batsman to reach fifty runs.
