Farhad Reza ( _bn. ফরহাদ েরজা ) (born 16 June 1986 in Rajshahi) is a Bangladeshi cricketer who made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in July 2006 and is the only batsman from Bangladesh to score a half century on debut. He is a right handed middle order batsman and right arm medium pace bowler and played domestic cricket for Rajshahi Division from 2004 until 2008. Initially Reza was not being picked for the national side by the selectors and Bashar insisted during the tournament that he could have used him. Finally he came to the squad after the injury of Tapash Baisya during the Super Eight stage. Reza retired from international and domestic cricket in September 2008, aged 22, to play in the Indian Cricket League (ICL). He represents the Dhaka Warriors, a team in the ICL made up solely of Bangladeshi players.

International career

In July 2006, following a successful 2005 domestic season when Reza was leading run-scorer in the Bangladesh domestic league, he was selected in the 15-man squad to tour Zimbabwe and Kenya. The then chief selector described Reza and Shakib Al Hasan, who was also chosen in the squad, as "...very good cricketers in all departments of the game. We have high hopes from them and it's time for them to perform at the international level".

Coming in when the score was 73/4, Reza scored 50 from 57 balls, guiding the team score to 147/6. He was bowled by Ed Rainsford and finished with bowling figures of 10-0-43-0. Bangladesh won the match by 62 runs.

Reza played in the last four matches of the series, averaging 31.66 with the bat and 60.50 with the ball.

Bangladesh progressed onto Kenya, where they won the three match ODI series 3-0. It was their first away-series victory, and in the final ODI, Reza scored an unbeaten 41 to guide the team to victory.

Indian Cricket League

In September 2008, Reza, along with five other Bangladesh players, informed the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) of his intention to retire from international and domestic cricket at the age of just 22. Reza and the others who decided to retire were summoned by the BCB to explain their decision, [cite web |url=http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/story/369708.html |author=Cricinfo staff |title=BCB receives retirement letters from six players |publisher=Cricinfo.com |date=14 September 2008 Retrieved on 21 September 2008.] however they did not turn up to the meeting.

The team is only the second team in the tournament to feature only players from one country.
