Road accident kills 2 cricketers in Bangladesh

A speeding ambulance slammed into a motorcycle in southwestern Bangladesh on Friday, killing test cricketer Manjural Islam and another domestic player.

Manjural, who has played six tests and 25 limited-overs internationals, died instantly, the United News of Bangladesh agency reported.

The accident took place in Khulna district, 136 kilometers (85 miles) southwest of the capital, Dhaka.

Manjural, who was not included Bangladesh's World Cup squad, and his friend, Sajjadul Islam, were on the motorbike. Sajjadul was a player in a local cricket club.

Further details were not immediately available.

Left-arm spinner Manjural, 22, made his ODI debut in November 2003 at the age of 19 and his test debut in the same season against Zimbabwe.

He averaged 23 wickets at an average of 29.95 in the one-day format, with best figures of 4-34 and a batting average of 20, reports AP.

Manjural played his last one-day international against Kenya in March 2006 at home and his last test was against India in December 2004.
