Mominul Haque was destined to hog the headlines when the first Test began at Chittagong as if the diminutive star was waiting to prove some quarters that they have wrongly sidelined him despite his ability to hung around and play like a true Test batsmen.
When he was not considered against Australia, media literally backed by senior players, forced national selectors to bring him back in the Test squad and later rest is history.
To sum up the mercurial rise of this talented Test batsman Mominul Haque, former National opener, celebrated Banker and Commentator Ishtiaque Ahmad spare his thought with BSS on Monday.
Ishtiaque said, "There probably isn't a player in international cricket as short as the short stature and diminutive left hander of Bangladesh Mominul Haque and who's deeds on the cricket field would suggest otherwise and tells a different story.
He said, " Once achieving an almost Bradmaesque feats with his bat and also on the verge of creating history by scoring the maximum number of Test 50's in a row, Mominul Haque not surprisingly has established a record of sorts for Bangladesh which no other player even remotely got close to it.
"Yes, two successive hundreds in the drawn test at Chittagong against the Sri Lankans not only saved the team from the jaws of defeat but the quality of his innings albeit on a batting paradise gives a new perspective to the character of the little master.
"After having the best batting averages amongst the Bangladeshi batsmen it was hard to comprehend the reasons that led to his conspicuous omission from the reckoning not only from the ODI's but also from the Test eleven as well.
"A very unassuming character, an introvert at that the steely resolve of the brilliant left hander was evident during both the outings against the Sri Lankans as if he was a man possessed and out on a mission.
Celebrating his first innings century with that unexpected punch in the air and an expression that belied his otherwise calm nature always kept under strong and composed emotions was a point that he needed to prove.
He created numbers of batting record in Test as Bangladesh batsman after his twin century in Chittagong Test.
Much as he brushed it aside by saying that it was for himself and the fact that he needed to prove to himself and not to the popular belief that the emotions were targeted at Haturasinghe, it is the young man's maturity, dignity and composure that is indeed worthy of respect.
He has proved beyond doubt that indeed it is 'class that is permanent and form that is temporary'.
