Since making his first-class debut at the age of 19, Mahmudullah hasn't exactly been a consistent performer, but has delivered when the team needs a saviour. He started off his career as a bowler, but found his potential with the bat and ever since then, he has been hammering away. He made his international debut for Bangladesh in an ODI against Sri Lanka in 2007 and made an immediate impact. He performance saw him being selected for the T20 World Cup in Kenya that year.
