Mohammad Shahid is one of several medium-pacers whose steady growth in Bangladesh's domestic cricket was rewarded by an international call-up within a few years. Shahid bowls off a long run-up, generating speeds up to 135kmph with a strong rock-back action.
Born in Narayanganj next to the Shitalakhya River, Shahid picked up his cricket in his teens before steadily going up the Dhaka league system with his sturdy pace bowling. He came into attention through some performances in the Dhaka Premier League and made his first-class debut in the 2011-12 season when he took 15 wickets at a bowling average of 26.06 in five matches.
The following season didn't go too well as he took just five wickets in five games but it got better in the next two seasons 2013-14 and 2014-15, when he took 18 wickets each. The second lot of 18 wickets was in addition to the 21 List A wickets he took for Legends of Rupganj in the DPL.
After being called up to the Bangladesh Test squad for the two-match series against Pakistan, he took five wickets in his first three Tests, against Pakistan and India. He has shown willingness to bowl long spells but has been found wanting at times with lack of pace or skillful work with the older ball, factors that have dogged most Bangladeshi pace bowlers.
