Shuvagata played for many years in the minor leagues before a talent scout brought him to play in Dhaka. He represented Dhaka's first division side, Cricket Coaching School and played as a No. 3 batsman. He was instrumental in making sure that his club was promoted to the premier league in Dhaka.

Shuvagata played some fine knocks that brought him into the reckoning for the national squad. He was named in the provisional squad of 30 players for the 2011 World Cup. Shuvagata was selected for the tour of Zimbabwe after the WC and has acquitted himself well with some handy contributions. He scored 70 runs in 3 matches against them and played one other game against West Indies before being dropped. Since then he has been sidelined and has been overlooked even after some good performances in first-class cricket.

In recent times, he is a regular face in Bangladesh Test team. Although Shuvagata established himself as a heavyweight player in domestic side, he is consistently a poor performer in the international level . In his 8 test match, he scored only 244 runs in 11 innings with an average of 22.18 and made only one half-century till now. With ball, he took 8 wickets with average of 63.25 in a good economy rate of 3.58. As a selectors-favourite, Shuvagata continues to reside in the test team despite of his poor performance. Bangladesh cricket fans always wonders how he could save his position in the squad and sometimes even make playing eleven while performer like Nasir Hussine is often used to carry water-bottle and towels as twelfth man. Although team selectors laimed him as a bowling alrounder and some cricket pundits say his offspin is remarkable, Shuvagata claims himself as a batting alrounder and his claim is supported by his 40+ batting average in domestic cricket.

Shuvagata made his first-class debut on 20 January 2010 in a National League match for Dhaka against Barisal. Dhaka batted once in the match and coming in at number seven Shuvagata scored 52 runs from 82 balls. During a warm-up match against a touring England side in March 2010, Shuvagata scored 91 runs from 30 balls for Bangladesh A from the bowling of Alastair Cook and Michael Carberry as England enticed his side to declare. Shuvagata scored his maiden century in October 2010, during the opening match of the National Cricket League against Khulna Division. Shuvagata scored 105 runs from 203 balls as the match ended in a draw. Dhaka were runners-up and Shuvagata played three of his team's nine matches, scoring 318 runs including two centuries.

After the 2011 World Cup, Bangladesh faced Australia in a three-match ODI series. Shuvagata was drafted into the national squad for the first time. He had to wait until Bangladesh's next series, five ODIs against Zimbabwe in August, before he made his debut. It was expected that Shuvagata would be introduced at the number four spot, but instead on debut he batted at number six. Debuting in the third match, he scored 32 runs from 36 balls before he was run out.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) founded the six-team Bangladesh Premier League in 2012, a twenty20 tournament to be held in February that year. An auction was held for teams to buy players, and Shuvagata was bought by the Sylhet Royals for $80,000. He scored 55 runs from 6 innings in the competition. In April the BCB awarded Shuvagata with a rookie contract.

In 2016 he was added to Bangladesh's squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 after Taskin Ahmed was suspended from bowling with an illegal action.

Along with Sunzamul Islam, he was the joint-leading wicket-taker in the 2016–17 Bangladesh Cricket League, with a total of 25 dismissals.
