Innings against Omar Qureshi XI[edit]

Rafiqul Alam is best remembered for his sterling 86 against Omar Qureshi XI, a team of Pakistani players led by Imran Khan in January 1986.

In domestic cricket[edit]

From the late 70's onto the early 90's Rafiqul Alam was one of the most consistent performers in domestic cricket arena. Unfortunately, he failed to achieve the same consistency in international arena. Nevertheless, many analysts still consider him as one of the best Bangladeshi cricketer of the 80's.[4]

After retirement[edit]

After serving as junior national selector in the 1990s, Rafiqul Alam concentrated on coaching club sides. He was the successful head coach of Kalabagan Krira Chakra in the late 1990s and 2000, 2001 and 2002. In 2007, he became chief national team selector. He has also been the coaching director of Dhanmondi Cricket Academy since its inception.
