Nasir Hossain joined Bangladesh's only sports institute, Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishtan (BKSP), in 2004 as a 13-year-old. He quickly became a vital member of the institute's league team and played an important role in its promotion to the Premier League. When he was 16, he represented Bangladesh in the U-19 World Cup in the year 2008. His talent was visible in his first international game, when he made 63 runs against Zimbabwe, the maximum by a Bangladeshi on his ODI debut. He scored his second half-century, from 54 deliveries, in the second ODI.
He helped Bangladesh to their best World Cup run in the 2015 Cricket World Cup. On 12 July, he got his career best of three wickets for 26 runs against South Africa to help Bangladesh win the second ODI and subsequently lead to the series win over the Proteas. Hossain can be a long-term prospect for the national team in all forms. As a lower-middle-order batsman, Hossain can bat according to the match situation; as an off-spinner, he can bowl with accuracy and control; and as a fielder, he is just exciting to watch.
