Former Bangladesh national team pacer Nazmul Hossain on Tuesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket to focus more on his coaching career.
The 31-year old cricketer, who played his last List-A match for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club in 2017-18 edition of Dhaka Premier League,
worked as the bowling consultant of Legends of Rupganj in the just-concluded DPL.
‘I was with the national team for 11 [nine] years. I played less number of matches in that period. After 2014, I had to struggle in many ways,’ Nazmul told reporters in Mirpur.
‘When I was fit, I was in and out of the team. I played my second Test after a gap of nine [seven] years.
‘I have talked with many former and current players who suggested me to go with coaching career. This season has been ended today and I will like to work with the pacers in coming days,’ he added.
Nazmul represented Bangladesh in two Tests, 38 one-day internationals and four Twenty20 matches in between 2004 to 2012 and took 50 wickets in total in three formats.
