In his debut Test, Hasan scalped six wickets in the very first innings and in the second Test, he turned the entire match in favour of Bangladesh with his stunning bowling. Hasan, who was playing beside experience spinners of Bangladesh, such as Shakib Al Hasan and Taijul Islam, the 19-year old spinner did exceptionally with the ball and made English batsman struggle .

Before making his Test debut, Hasan had only played 12 First-Class games in which his bowling average read 21. Had there been no Hasan in this Bangladesh s team, then surely, England would have clinch the victory in the second Test. Hasan was a surprise package in the Bangladesh attack which England could not deal with it and gave their 19 wickets to this young bowler in his maiden Test series. Bangladesh has been among those nations in cricket which is expected to produce some exceptional and in last two years, they have done it quite frequently.
