Hasan Mahmud is one among a group of young pace bowlers who have given hope of a fast bowling uprising in Bangladesh, after decades of reliance on spin. Mahmud is still at a very early stage of his career, having just played a single T20I for Bangladesh, and earned a maiden call-up in the ODI side in January 2021, but already he has earned plenty of praise from Bangladesh's coaches for his ability to bowl fast, full and accurately.
Mahmud is also one of the rarities in Bangladesh cricket, in that he is also a very good outfielder among the pace bowlers. He is not very tall, but with an action that is mostly front-on, he generates enough pace to beat the bat. During the Bangabandhu T20 Cup in November 2020, Mahmud took eleven wickets for eventual champions Gemcon Khulna, which got him the ODI call-up against West Indies.
He mainly emerged from the BCB's age-group structure, having first played for the Chattogram Under-16s in 2015, since he is from Laxmipur, a district within the Chattogram Division. He developed for three years in the system, culminating in his nine wickets in the 2018 Under-19 World Cup.
He quickly followed it up with 12 wickets in the Dhaka Premier League (List-A) and continued to play for the Under-23 side. In the 2019-20 season, he took ten wickets each in the BPL (T20s) and Bangladesh Cricket League (first-class) competitions, before making his T20I debut against Zimbabwe in March 2020.
