Test Career

Al-Amin has taken 9 wickets in 7 Test matches at an average of 60.55. He played his first Test against New Zealand in Dhaka on 21 October 2013. His best bowling figures of 3/80 in Gros Islet in September 2014 could not prevent the West Indies from scoring 380 in their first innings of the second match on Bangladesh’s tour of the West Indies that year. Hossain took the wickets of J Blackwood, D Ramdin and SJ Benn. Nevertheless, Bangladesh collapsed for 161 handing the West Indies a lead of 219 on the first innings. Al-Amin went wicketless in the West Indies’ second knock of 269/4 declared. The hosts completed a 296-run win after bowling out Bangladesh for 192 in their second innings. Hossain played his last Test against India in Kolkata on 20 November 2019.

ODI Career

In 15 ODIs, Al-Amin has taken 22 wickets at an average of 27.63. He played his first ODI against Sri Lanka in Dhaka on 17 February 2014. Arguably his most effective performance came against Zimbabwe in Dhaka, in the second match of a series on Zimbabwe’s tour of Bangladesh on 9 November 2015. Batting first, the hosts scored 241/9. Al-Amin took 2/22 in 8 overs to help bowl out the visitors for 183, paving the way for a 58-run Bangladesh victory. He played his last ODI against Zimbabwe in Sylhet on 3 March 2020 that was won by Bangladesh despite Al-Amin’s expensive bowling in which he gave away 85 runs in 10 overs.

T20I Career

Al-Amin has played 31 T20Is in which he has taken 43 at an average of 16.97. He played his first T20I against New Zealand in Dhaka on 6 November 2013. With figures of 2/17 in 4 overs in a league match of the World T20 in Chattogram on 18 March 2014, Al-Amin helped restrict Nepal to 126/5 in their allotted overs, paving the way for Bangladesh batsmen to chase down the target in 15.3 overs with 8 wickets in hand. Another good example of him demonstrating his talent was an Asia Cup game in Dhaka on 2 March 2016 when he took 3/25 to restrict Pakistan to 129/7. Bangladesh won the match by 5 wickets with 5 balls to spare. Another memorable performance by Hossain came in Dhaka on 28 February 2016 in the Asia Cup. After Bangladesh had scored 147/7 in their allotted overs, Al-Amin took 3/34 in his 4 overs to help restrict Sri Lanka to 124/8. He accounted for the wickets of Mathews, Shanaka and Kulasekara to gift Bangladesh a facile 23-run victory. Al-Amin played his last T20I against Sri Lanka in Colombo on 6 November 2013, a game that featured another match-winning performance of 2/22 that underscored his utility to Bangladesh in T20I cricket.
