Samiur Rahman is a former Bangladeshi cricketer who played in 2 ODIs in 1986. The right arm medium pacer failed to take any wickets in those 2 ODIs, but over all he performed with great distinction for Bangladesh throughout the 80's. Apart from being a new ball swing bolwer, he was more than a useful lower order batsman. Like his brother, Yousuf Rahman (better known as Yousuf Babu), Sami was a regular for the national side.

Sami in ICC Trophy[edit]

Though he was overlooked for the 1st ICC Trophy in 79, he was a vital member of the side that finished fourth in 82. He took 7 wickets at 18.85 a piece. His best bowling, 3/31 came in the first match against West Africa.[1]

In 1986, he played in only 3 matches taking 3 wickets.[2]
