Nasir Hossain is one of the young allrounders in Bangladesh who, if handled correctly, could be a long-term prospect for the national team in all forms. As a lower-middle-order batsman, Nasir can bat in different gears depending on the match situation; as an offspinner he has control and accuracy; and his fielding is perhaps the most exciting part of his game. His potential was seen in his first international game, when he scored 63 against Zimbabwe, the highest by a Bangladeshi on ODI debut. That performance led to his Test debut against West Indies in October 2011, a month before his 20th birthday.
That he had a feel for sports was obvious pretty early in Nasir's life: he joined Bangladesh's only sports institute, BKSP, in 2004 as a 13-year-old. In a few years, Nasir quickly became an important member of the institute's league team and played a key role in its promotion to the Premier League. At the same time, he represented the Bangladesh Under-19 side in the 2008 World Cup when he was 16.
His move to Abahani, one of the biggest clubs in the country, was a move fraught with risk but Nasir held his nerve in tight games and soon became a regular for them. In one of his early games, his courage to open the bowling against Sanath Jayasuriya (who was playing for Mohammedan Sporting Club) was seen as a mark of his promise.
He had limited opportunities in the Rajshahi side, scoring a solitary first-class hundred. He joined his native Rangpur for the 2011-12 season after the expansion of the NCL.
