A right-handed batsman and wicketkeeper, Jahurul Islam was drafted into the Bangladesh Test squad during the home series against England in 2010 following Raqibul Hasan's shock retirement. A national call-up was anyway on the cards, after he topped the overall run charts in the first-class National Cricket League with 965 runs at 68.92 for Rajshahi Division and helped them to the 2009-10 title. In his Test debut in Mirpur, he began inauspiciously with a duck but followed it up with 43. Jahurul entered the first-class scene in 2002-03 and was once a part of the Bangladesh Academy.
