Bangladesh pacer Sharif quits all forms of cricket

April 12, 2020 04:29 PM


Bangladesh fast bowler Mohammad Sharif has retired from all forms of cricket. Sharif had played 10 Tests and nine ODIs for Bangladesh in a brief international career between 2001 and 2007.

He has a total of 24 international wickets (14 in Tests, 10 in ODIs). He, however, boasts of an illustrious career in domestic cricket with 393 scalps in first-class cricket and 185 in List A.

“I have decided to quit from all forms of cricket though I feel I could have played for another two years,” Sharif told Cricbuzz. “I am looking forward to working with BCB in the coming days if there is a possibility as I want to share the experience that I have gathered during this long journey,” he said.

Sharif made his international debut in a match against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in April 2001 and later made his Test debut in the same tour. In both matches, he got a wicket each. He continued to be a steady presence in the Bangladesh lin-up before injuries caught up with him in 2002 and 2003. He has since had a stop-start career and the last international he played was a Test match against Sri Lanka in July 2007.

Sharif said that a nagging shoulder injury is what forced him to take the sudden decision. “Basically my shoulder injury gives me this kind of thought. Like I have 11 scores in the beep test, but then again I think my right shoulder injury is in 50-50 condition. So I don’t want to be involved with any club with this condition,” said Sharif.
