Nazmul Hossain Shanto emerged from an unusual source in Bangladesh cricket - the schools. A double-century in a school one-day match in Rajshahi grabbed the attention of age-group scouts, who quickly drafted the left-hander into Bangladesh's Under-17s. Soon, he graduated to the Under-19s in 2013, and went on to play two World Cups at that level, in 2014 and 2016.

By November 2014, Nazmul had made his first-class debut for Rajshahi and the following year made his maiden first-class century. In the 2016 Dhaka Premier League, where he had his first taste of real competition in the domestic system, he made 537 runs at 41.30. But it was his 2016 Under-19 World Cup exploits - 259 runs at 64.75 - that grabbed the selectors' attention and led them to pick him for the senior team's training camp in Sydney ahead of their 2016-17 New Zealand tour.

With Mominul Haque ruled out with a rib injury on the day before the second Test in Christchurch, Nazmul was drafted in to the playing XI, becoming the 84th Bangladeshi to play Test cricket.
