Kazi Shahadat Hossain is a Bangladeshi cricketer. His debut Test against England at Lord's in 2005 was something of a sober experience, as he conceded 101 runs in 12 overs without taking a wicket, an economy rate of 8.41. On the tour to Zimbabwe in July 2006, Hossain became the first Bangladeshi to take a hat-trick in One Day Internationals. When he came onto the international scnene he was cited by then coach Dav Whatmore as the fastest bowler in the team. The following year, Hossain made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Kenya. At times Hossain has struggled with conceding too many runs, and for that reason was dropped in 2009. The next time Shahadat played was when Bangladesh hosting India for two Tests in January 2010. In November 2010, Hossain was a member of the squad that won Bangladesh's first gold in any event at the Asian Games. Noted for his height and aggression, Hossain was cited as the fastest bowler in the Bangladesh team by former coach Dav Whatmore in 2005.
