Former national skipper Rajin Saleh on Thursday retired from all forms of cricket with his heads high after he was named man-of-the-match performance in his Sylhet’s drawn match against Dhaka in Cox’s Bazar.
Rajin, who made a valuable contribution of 67 runs in Sylhet’s first innings, fell 13-run short of scoring a hundred in his last first-class innings, though his 87 off 224 balls were enough for his side to secure a draw.
‘It was an emotional moment for me. I would have been happier if I could finish with a hundred but I’m happy with what I have achieved in my 22-year first-class career,’ Rajin told New Age.
‘I will continue my relation with cricket as I will now focus on coaching career with my divisional team and my academy,’ he added.
Rajin represented Bangladesh in 24 Tests and 43 ODIs and played his last international match in 2008.
He also played 148 first-class matches and scored 8481 runs with 18 first-class tons.
