Javed Omar has a unique quality of occupying the crease and has developed the closest thing to a Test-class opener that Bangladesh has produced. An excess of one-day internationals early in his career did not help his growth, but all complaints about his run score were offset by a historic Test debut when he carried his bat for 85 not out, only the third player in history to achieve this in his first match. He highlighted his achievements with a painstaking 80, compiled over 100 overs, in his sixth Test, against Zimbabwe at Chittagong.
