A rangy, raw medium-pacer, Anwar Hossain Monir toured Australia in mid-2003, winning his first Test cap in the second Test at Cairns without taking a wicket. He didn't feature in the tour of Pakistan that followed, but led the attack for the Board President's team in the first match of England's tour in October 2003 - when his three wickets included Michael Vaughan, caught behind by Monir's near-namesake Anwar Hossain. He was included in the squad that toured England in the spring of 2005 and earned selection for the Test series after taking three wickets in a warm-up against Northants.
He played in the second Test of that series, the last time he was picked for Bangladesh. After a few more years in domestic cricket, Monir has taken part in coaching courses and is now employed by the BCB.
