Alok Kapali ( _bn. অলক কাপালী ) (born January 1, 1984 in Sylhet) is a Bangladeshi cricketer. He is an allrounder who bats in the middle to lower order and bowls leg spin with a run-up (walk up) similar to that of Shane Warne. He is the only Bangladeshi cricket player to take a Test hat-trick.

International career

Test career

Kapali made his Test debut in 2002, against Sri Lanka at Colombo. He took 2 wickets, Michael Vandort and Upul Chandana as well as making 39 and 23 with the bat. In his next 16 Tests he took just 4 more wickets and this included a hat-trick against Pakistan in 2003. This was spread over two overs, and when he trapped Umar Gul LBW with the first ball of his 3rd over Kapali became the first Bangladeshi bowler to achieve the milestone in Test cricket, and the youngest of all time, at the age of 19 years 240 days. He finished with figures of 3/3. His effort in quickly cleaning up the tail also allowed gave Bangladesh their maiden first innings lead in Tests.

With the bat Kapali has struggled thus far in Test cricket and made his highest score of 85 against the West Indies at Chittagong.

One Day Internationals

In One Day International cricket he has been in and out of the side, impressing more with the bat than the ball. He hit the fastest century by a Bangladeshi batsmen (86 deliveries) in a match against India during the 2008 Asia cup.
