The 33-year old Mashrafe contested his 54th and last T20I and the “Narail Express” ended up with 42 wickets with best bowling figures of 4/19.
Emotions have been running high in the Bangladesh camp in the last few days after the charismatic Mashrafe decided to call it a day as far as the shortest format of the game is concerned.
His team mates said they were desperate to give him the perfect send-off and they did exactly that, registering a commanding performance.
Mashrafe however, had a rather poor time with the bat as he was out for a golden duck. To make matters worse, he later missed an easy catch at the cover region.
With that said, Mashrafe somewhat redeemed himself by picking up the wicket of all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna. His final T20I bowling figures read 4-0-30-1.
Seamer Mustafizur Rahman led the wickets chart with four scalps while Shakib al Hasan picked up three.
The inspirational Mashrafe though will still be available for selection in one-day internationals with Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan earlier confirming that he will be captain for the foreseeable future.
