Saif Hassan is a 22-year-old right-handed opening batsman who has played international cricket for Bangladesh. Though Saif has not much impressed the audience in the international matches he has played, these are still very early days as the young man has taken part in only 2 Test matches so far. His first-class track record suggests that Saif will show himself sooner rather than later: in 21 first-class games, he has scored 1342 runs at 47.92 with 3 tons and 8 half-centuries, including his top score of 204.
