The early daysEdit
He was elevated him to the national squad. There, however, he struggled to hold his place, as Bangladesh already had two other left arm seamers, Gholam Nousher and Jahangir Alam Talukdar. Anisur's career was also hampered by injuries and No-Ball problem. Still, he briefly emerged in 1994, following the retirement of Prince and Dulu, as the country's top pace bowler.
In the 1994-95 SAARC Quadrangular Tournament at Dhaka, (December 1994), he took 3/29 against Pakistan A, 4/29 against Sri Lanka A, & 3/28 against India A. In these matches, he used the reverse swing of the old ball with great effect. In fact, Anisur Rahman was one of the first Bangladeshi bowler to successfully use the reverse swing.
