Mushfiqur Rahim Biography


Mushfiqur Rahim is a Bangladeshi cricketer who was born on June 9, 1987, in Bogra, Bangladesh. He is a wicketkeeper and a right-handed middle order batsman.


Background


Rahim started his career by playing for Bangladesh U19 in both youth ODIs and tests. He was also the captain of Bangladesh U19 during 2006 ICC U19 World Cup, which included players like Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal. His captaincy led Bangladesh to the quarterfinals of that tournament.


Debut


Rahim made his international debut in his late teens on May 26, 2005, at the Lord’s, when he was part of the Bangladesh side that toured England for the first time. He was selected as a specialist batsman with the presence of Khaled Mashud as the prior wicketkeeper. He scored 19 in his maiden inning but could not play rest of the series due to an ankle injury.


He played his maiden ODI against Zimbabwe August 6, 2006, at Harare where he scored his maiden half century. His good performances made him a regular part of the team not only as a batsman but wicket keeper also.


Later that year, Rahim made his T20 international debut also against Zimbabwe only on 28 November 2006 at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium.


Rise to Glory
