Mosaddek Hossain comes from a family of cricketers. He has played List A and first-class cricket in Bangladesh since 2013. He came into limelight in the 2013 Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League, helping Abahani Limited fight a disastrous campaign. He made a century and three fifties, before heading to the Bangladesh U-19 training camp ahead of the 2014 ICC World Cup in the UAE. The chance to get out of age-group cricket early played a vital role in his development.
In 2014-15 he passed 1000 first-class runs in his 10th match. He also scored 250 and 282 in consecutive matches that season. In October 2015, he became the first Bangladeshi player to score three double-centuries, reaching the milestone in just 12 matches. Mosaddek made his Test debut in March 2017 in a one-off game against Sri Lanka. Due to his gifted abilities, he has always been in the selectors' radar. Hossain can also bowl handy off-breaks; which are very effective, particularly in the shorter formats. Hossain possesses great skills and a strong temperament and we may see him develop more in the years to come.
