The 31-year old has played two Tests (5 wickets), 38 ODIs (44 wickets) and 4 T20Is (1 wicket) for the national side during his injury-riddled career

Right-arm pacer Nazmul Hossian has called stumps on his cricketing career as the former Tigers fast bowler announced his retirement to the media at Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket stadium on Tuesday.

Nazmul has been working as a bowling coach for Legends of Rupganj club this season, alongside his former teammate Aftab Ahmed who is the head coach of the team. The announcement came while Rupganj was playing against Prime Bank in their last match of Dhaka Premier League 2019. Rupganj played brilliantly throughout the season and finished second, losing the title to Abahani Limited only for an inferior run-rate though both the teams earned same number of points. 

The 31-year old has played two Tests (5 wickets), 38 ODIs (44 wickets) and 4 T20Is (1 wicket) for the national side during his injury-riddled career.

He made his Test debut in 2004 against India and the next Test he played was seven years later against Pakistan in Dhaka.    

Nazmul played his last list A match for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club during the 2018 season. The experienced campaigner has played 52 first-class matches and 69 list A matches since his debut back in 2004.
