Mushfiqur Rahim has got the national team for the first time in the 2005 tour of England. This was the 1st cricket tour of Bangladesh in England. So many Bangladeshi batsmen have to suffer enough to face unfavorable conditions and against counter bowling.
Mushfiqur Rahim climbed to the environment by playing preparatory matches. Whose evidence against his side was 63 runs against Sussex and not at 115 * at the start of Nottinghamshire, although he was considered to be only wicket-keeper, Mushfiqur Rahim was forced to consider the selectors to rehearse his sport in hot matches. As a result, he became the specialist batsman in the inaugural Test series in Lord’s.
The 16-year-old youngster returned to the pavilion in the first innings with only 19 runs. The team all-out is 108 runs and the three batsmen are able to reach the two-figure house.
Mushfiq is again in the national squad during the 2006 Zimbabwe tour. In this tour Farhad Reza and Shakib Al Hasan also made his ODI debut. Mushfiq scored his first half-century against Zimbabwe in Harare, and replaced Khaled Masud for the World Cup held in West Indies next year.
In the second Test against Sri Lanka in July 2007, Mushfiq is again in the squad for the second Test. Bangladesh lost to an innings and a huge 90 runs. Mushfiqur, with Mohammad Ashraful, scored a record 191 in the sixth wicket stand. Mushfiq played a wonderful innings of 80 runs.
Since 2011 Bangladesh has started the role of captain of the national team. Under his leadership Bangladesh are runners up with their best success in the Asia Cup.
On January 4, 2015, the BCB authorities published a 15-member final list of Bangladesh team to participate in the 2015 Cricket World Cup competition. He was also nominated as one of the members of the team.
