Mukhtar Hussain is an exciting quick bowler who has excelled for Assam across the three domestic formats.

A tall bowler who regularly hits 140kph, Hussain’s journey started for Assam at age-group level, starring in the various state tournaments.

His exploits for the Under-19s at the Cooch Behar Trophy (Nov 2017-Jan 2018), where he topped the states' wicket-charts (35 wickets at 17.88) paved the way to a Vijay Hazare Trophy debut in February 2018. Since then, he hasn’t looked back, bagging poles across all formats.

Hussain enjoyed a remarkable debut Ranji Trophy season (2018/19), taking 40 wickets at 24.15. He kicked off the campaign with successful 5-wicket hauls, namely 5-77 v Jharkhand, then 5-73 (and 4-44) v Tripura. A few games later he bagged his third 5-wicket haul, figures of 5-39 v Jammu and Kashmir.

Roll on the 2019/20 season, and Hussain continued to shine, taking career-best figures against Uttarakhand (6-15 from 12 overs) amongst 24 wickets at 29.08.

Unfortunately for the flying Hussain COVID struck and the 2020/21 season saw no Ranji Trophy cricket. Nevertheless, he continued to take poles in white-ball cricket, particularly in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (6 wickets at 18.83).

Last summer (2021/22) saw the return of red-ball cricket and Hussain continued to impress bagging 11 wickets at 23.72, following a strong Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20) campaign with 8 wickets at 15.62 all with an economy of 7.81.

He was all set to play UK club cricket in 2022 before his State scuppered the opportunity, so is now eager to secure a UK club for the 2023 season.
