Profile

Nazmul Hossain is a Bangladeshi right arm medium pacer who has modeled his action on the lines of South African fast bowler Makhaya Ntini.

Hossain made his first-class debut in the 2004-05 season and was immediately picked to play for the Bangladeshi Test side, as a sixteen-year old against India. He did pick up a couple of wickets, but then was dropped from the Test team. In the interim period between 2004 and 2006, he played quite a handful of ODIs for the Bangladesh side, but was once again dropped from the side. He made his ODI debut against South Africa in the 2004 version of the Champions Trophy, and though his team lost, he managed to end with reasonable figures.

Hossain tends to go away from the stumps at the non striker while bowling and gets the ball to jag back in with the angle. However, the delivery that usually gets the batsmen in trouble is the one that leaves the right handed batsmen after pitches, something that is difficult to bowl with the kind of angle Nazmul bowls at.
