DHAKA: Veteran Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah has announced his retirement from Test cricket, the Bangladesh Cricket Board confirmed on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old, who made his Test debut in 2009, featured in 50 matches, scoring 2914 runs at 33.49, including five centuries and 16 fifties and took 43 wickets. He also captained Bangladesh for six Tests, during his 12-year career in the longest format of the game.

He played his 50th Test against Zimbabwe earlier this year in July at the Harare Sports Club. It was a momentous occasion for the all-rounder as he starred in Bangladesh's 220-run win over the hosts by hitting 150* in the first innings and was adjudged Player of the Match. On day three of that match, Mahmudullah had already informed his teammates that he won't be extending his career in the longest format. He had also received a guard of honour from them on the final morning of the match. But, there was no official recognition of the retirement from the BCB till now and they were pondering if Mahmudullah's decision was just an emotional one. However, the batting all-rounder has now made the call official.
