Longer version tournaments play an important role in strengthening the pipeline of the Bangladesh national team. I think the more opportunities young pacers get in these tournaments, the stronger our pipeline will be. So I have decided to retire from red ball cricket to give opportunities to young cricketers.
I have been lucky enough to play 27 Test matches for Bangladesh. Which is one of the achievements of my career. I believe, gratitude to those who have supported me in this journey of international and domestic cricket in red ball cricket. I hope to see you in the coming days. I left the test. However, I have the potential to give more to the Bangladesh national team in the ODI and T20 formats. So I will continue to play regularly in DPL, BPL and other white ball tournaments. pray for me May I give you colorful dreams for the rest of your white ball life.
