Nurul Hasan, who made his first-class debut in 2011, is one of a whole host of talented Bangladesh wicketkeepers who had to wait his turn to play international cricket.

It wasn't entirely his fault though. For 30 years, the position behind the stumps was the domain of Khaled Mashud or Mushfiqur Rahim.

Nurul made his T20I debut in January 2016, against Zimbabwe, one of many experiments that the selectors indulged in ahead of the Asia Cup and the World T20. His ODI debut was equally accidental as Mushfiqur sustained a hamstring injury on the tour of New Zealand in December. Nurul was only the fifth wicketkeeper to make an ODI debut since Mushfiqur's career began in 2006.

Shortly afterward, he was included on the tour to New Zealand and subsequently made his Test debut, due to Mushfiqur’s absence in the second Test. He struck 47 in his debut innings and effected a brilliant run-out, to earn another overseas trip, this time to the Caribbean in July 2017. He superseded Mushfiqur with the gloves and hit his maiden Test fifty (64) in the first Test. However, he joined a select list of only 19, including the likes of Gilchrist and Sehwag, when registering a King Pair in his next Test. This proved to be his last – for now.

Nevertheless, Nurul continued to churn runs across all domestic formats. 524 runs at 43.44 in List A cricket during the 2018/19 season before his run-filled first-class campaign in 2019/20 (584 runs at 64.88). This paved the way to a national re-call in July 2021 against the touring Zimbabweans. He impressed on his return, striking a 39-ball 45 not out to guide his side home in pursuit of Zimbabwe's 298. Thereafter, Nurul featured in the T20s against Zimbabwe and the series against Australia in Dhaka. He is now the incumbent keeper for the Bangladesh side, across the three formats.

Despite his age, Nurul is now a veteran of 400-plus domestic matches and is on the verge of 10,000 runs with 12 centuries across the three formats. The run machine is a high-quality performer, who is keen to explore cricket abroad in 2023 (and beyond). He has initially targeted a season in the UK but is also open to other avenues, including T20 cricket around the globe.
