Khaled Masud Pilot was the best wicket-keeper in Bangladesh Cricket team. He was also second Test captain of Bangladesh. Once Khaled Mahmud took over as captain, Mashud concentrated on his game and developing the Rajshahi divisional cricket team in the domestic first-class competition. He was successful in reviving his native division’s cricketing fortunes, helping create a core group of cricketers. A slogged six over long-on in the 1997 ICC Trophy final against Kenya that brought him into the national consciousness.

Bangladesh’s sporting fraternity will remember him as a pioneer. He had made his international debut two years before, when he was the most disciplined cricketer in the country, having come from Rajshahi, the northern headquarter.

Putting in the long hours in training took Mashud, also known as ‘Pilot’, to great heights, including being the first name in the Bangladesh team sheet for more than a decade.

His ICC Trophy exploits cemented him a place in the national team, but he wasn’t making the runs despite providing the steadiness as a wicketkeeper. His only Test hundred, against West Indies in the drawn game at Gros Islet, was also to ensure Bangladesh safety in what was also his longest stay at the crease – five-and-a-half hours.
