Test Career

Najmul Hossain has scored 201 runs in 4 Test matches at an average of 28.71. He played his first Test against New Zealand in Christchurch in January 2017. He had a rather forgettable debut, making 18 and 12 in a match that the Kiwis won by 9 wickets. In the first match of a series against Pakistan in Rawalpindi in February 2020, Najmul demonstrated his temperament and consistency in a match that Bangladesh lost by an innings. In that game, Bangladesh batted first. Batting at number 3, Najmul scored 44 off 110 balls and shared partnerships of 59 with Mominul Haque and 33 with Mahmudullah to help Bangladesh to a score of 233. Pakistan scored 445 to register a first-innings lead of 212 runs. When they batted again, Bangladesh collapsed for the second time to be all out for 168. Once again, Najmul stood tall among the ruins. Even as wickets were falling around him, the young batsman held his nerve and showed maturity beyond his years to score 38 off 87 balls. He shared a third-wicket partnership of 71 with his skipper Mominul Haque. Unfortunately, after Najmul’s departure, the innings fell apart as Haq received inadequate support from the remaining batsmen. Najmul accomplished his highest score in his last Test played against Zimbabwe in Dhaka in February 2020. In that game, Zimbabwe batted first and were bowled out for 265. Batting at number 3, Najmul scored 71 off 139 balls. He shared a 2nd-wicket stand of 78 with Tamim Iqbal and a 4th-wicket partnership of 76 with Mominul Haque, helping Bangladesh to post a score of 560/6 declared. Zimbabwe were bowled out for 189 in their second knock, giving Bangladesh an innings victory.

ODI Career

Najmul Hossain has scored 55 runs in 5 ODIs at an average of 11.00. He played his first ODI against Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi on 20 September 2018. After a lacklustre start to his ODI career, Najmul made his highest ODI score against Zimbabwe in Sylhet on 1 March 2020. Batting at number 3, Najmul scored 29 off 38 balls with one four and 2 sixes. He was involved in a 2nd-wicket partnership of 80 to help Bangladesh to a first innings score of 321/6. When Zimbabwe batted they were bowled out for 152, allowing Bangladesh to celebrate a 169-run win. He played his last ODI against Zimbabwe in Sylhet on 3 March 2020.

T20I Career

Najmul Hossain has scored 16 runs in 2 T20I matches at an average of 8.00. He played his first T20I against Zimbabwe in Chattogram on 18 September 2019. Though Najmul has not performed well in the two T20Is he has participated in, these are early days yet. Nevertheless, as of now, he has not been as effective in white-ball cricket as in Test matches. He played his last T20I against Afghanistan in Chattogram on 21 September 2019.
