Bangladesh Cricket Board’s Twitter handle has been busy of late in updating the latest activities of Bangladesh Cricket. Recently, Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka by a huge margin of 209 runs in the second Test match.
Meanwhile, on May 4 (Tuesday), the BCB took to Twitter and wished Late Manzarul Islam Rana on his 37th birth anniversary. Rana made his debut as a 19-year-old prospect in 2003.
Manzarul Islam Rana shot into prominence when he got rid of the then England captain Michael Vaughan off his third delivery. It was also the first instance when a Bangladesh international bagged a wicket in his first international over itself.
In the following year, the young all-rounder made his Test debut against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. In March 2007, Rana drew his last breath at 22 years and 316 days after a road accident.
Remembering the late cricketer on his birthday anniversary, the BCB posted a tweet on their official handle on Twitter. BCB took to their official Twitter handle and came up with a bizarre tweet that took everyone by surprise.
“Happy Birthday to Manjural Islam Rana, youngest Test Cricketer to die at the age 22 years and 316 days,” the BCB wrote on Twitter. The tweet went viral in no time on social media platforms.

Meanwhile, BCB deleted their previous tweet and posted a new tweet. “Happy Birthday to Manjural Islam Rana. One of the Greatest Tiger we ever had. #BCB #HBDManjuralIslamRana,” BCB wrote.
