He is a promising medium-pace bowler who was discovered at 17, Babu's most conspicuous cricketing act so far has been to concede the most expensive List-A over of all time when he gave away 39 in a Dhaka Premier League match.
He bowls right-arm fast bowler who can bat in middle-order was included in the Bangladesh squad for the 2010 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. He took a four-wicket haul in the first four-day match against England Under-19s in July 2009.
He first earned attention in 2008, when he took an eight-wicket haul in Dhaka's First Division League, which is the level just below the Premier League.
Earmarked as a future prospect, and consequently selected for the National Cricket Academy in 2010, he made his first-class debut for Rajshahi Division Cricket Team, and then moved to Rangpur Division when the region became a divisional cricket team the following year.
In 2013, Elton Chigumbura hammered the 39 from the last over of the innings bowled Alauddin. He gave away five off the first ball which was a no-ball, and then bowled a wide. Off the next five balls, Elton Chigumbura alternated between sixes and fours before Alauddin bowled another wide and was finished off with a six. Alauddin ended up conceding a whopping 93 in his 10 overs.
