BCB President Najmul said – I am surprised
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan says he is surprised by Mahmudullah’s decision. He said in a conversation with a Bangladeshi newspaper, ‘No one has told me anything officially. But one called me and told that he (Mahmudullah) does not want to play Test cricket after the current Test mat and has told everyone in the dressing room. But I found it very unusual because the match is not over yet.
He said that we had written to the players about the format which they want to play in the future. This happened four or five days before I left for Zimbabwe. Mahmudullah had written that if given a chance, he wants to play in all three formats (Test, ODI, T20). That’s why he was included in the Test team. Najmul further said that I called him twice at my house and asked him and he confirmed to me that he wants to play Test. I asked him will you bowl if needed? He said that he would do so. He is now talking about retirement and I am very surprised.
