A promising medium-pace bowler who was discovered at 17, Alauddin Babu's most conspicuous cricketing act so far has been to concede the most expensive List A over of all time, when he gave away 39 in a Dhaka Premier League match.
He first earned attention in 2008, when he took an eight-wicket haul in Dhaka's First Division League, which is the level just below the Premier League. He was immediately fast-tracked to the Bangladesh Under-19 team the same year, and he played in the 2010 Youth World Cup in New Zealand.
Earmarked as a future prospect, and consequently selected for the National Cricket Academy in 2010, he made his first-class debut for Rajshahi Division, and then moved to Rangpur when the region became a divisional cricket team the following year.
Seam-bowling allrounders are rare in Bangladesh, which is an advantage to Alauddin, who is also known as a big-hitting lower-order batsman. But he has struggled with injuries lately. A likable character, Alauddin will need all the support he can get to recover from the 39-runs in an over debacle.
