He has retired from the Mahmudullah Test cricket in Bangladesh
Bangladesh’s Mahmudullah has announced he will retire from Test cricket at the age of 35, but will continue to play for One-Day Internationals and Twenty20s, the country’s cricket board (BCB) said in a statement on Wednesday.
Mahmudullah’s final test was against Zimbabwe in Harare in July, where he scored 150 undefeated in his last inning and led the team to victory. He played a total of 50 games and averaged 33.49 runs in 2,914 runs.
“Leaving a format I’ve been involved in for so long isn’t easy. I’ve always thought about going up and I think it’s the right time to finish my Test career,” Mahmudullah said.

He also received 43 wickets in his 12-year career.
“I would like to thank my teammates and support staff for always encouraging me and believing in my ability. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to play Test cricket in Bangladesh and I will cherish many memories.”
Bangladesh will host Pakistan from Friday in the first match of the two Test series in Chittagong.
