International honours

In his prime, he played 3 Tests and a solitary T20I for Bangladesh between 2008 and 2013, however, despite not featuring since he remains a key performer in domestic cricket.

A genuine left-arm swing bowler and hard-hitting batter, Islam is now looking to play global T10/T20 competitions, alongside UK league cricket from 2022 onwards.

Third time lucky in 2022…

He was due to make his English club debut in 2020 and again in 2021, having signed with Devon club Torquay prior to COVID.
