Nadir officiated in six Tests, 63 ODIs and three T20Is and was regarded as one of the finest umpires in Bangladesh
Former Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza like many others in the cricket community took to his social media account to put on a farewell message for departed former cricketer and umpire Nadir Shah.
Prominent cricket umpire of the country, Nadir passed away early Friday morning at a city hospital after battling with prolonged cancer.
He was 57.
“Nadir bhai, all of us will miss you wearing the folded short sleeve shirt. You used to scold me when I used to bowl and my front leg used to get stiff – Mash you are getting stiff. Come back a little bit. And there was no respite if I had stepped in the danger zone,” said Mashrafe.
“All the times spent with you having fun chats – all have turned into memories now. You had asked for a sunglass from me but you left before I could deliver it to you. Stay well on the other size. May Allah bless you,” Mashrafe added.
Nadir officiated in six Tests, 63 ODIs and three T20I and was regarded as one of the finest umpires and popular figures in the cricketing fraternity.
Nadir's namaz-e-janaza was held at Baitul Aman Mosque in Dhanmondi Road No 7 after the jummah prayers.
