He scored two half-centuries in the first Test, becoming the 6th Bangladesh batsman to perform the feat.
Rahim was appointed vice-captain for Bangladesh's tour of Zimbabwe in August 2009.

During the 2006 U-19 Cricket World Cup, hosted by Sri Lanka in February, Rahim captained the Bangladesh side which included future international players Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal among others.
