Farewell to Khaled Mahmud
It is predicted that Khaled Mahmud will say good-bye to international cricket tomorrow during the first match of the ODI series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Preparation for a farewell ceremony is going on to honor Khaled Mahmud’s departure from international cricket. BCB already made the plaque to be presented to the former captain. The plaque is made of a framed picture of Mahmud. Mahmud’s team-mates are also planning to say good-bye formally. On behalf of the National Team players, a bat signed by every member of the team will be presented to Mahmud in the farewell match.

চাচা বলে কথা, আগে রিটায়ার করুক, পরে আরো একটা বছর অন্তত দেখি। তারপর বিশ্বাস করলেও করতে পারি।

তবে যদি সত্যি সত্যিই চাচা এবার রিটায়ার করে, তাহলে বলতেই হবে Sauron ভাই মোক্ষম সময়ে ফেয়ারওয়েল গিফট্ টা তৈরি করেছিলেন।

All i have to say is This i am glad that even though chacha had so much going against him, he never gave up and at least gave us few wins... even though most his country men laughed at him all the time(from the very beginning). He showed some of us even though you are not smart like others may be not physically fit like others but you can still do it with great heart....

by the way most of the so called legends of bd didn't even got a farewell but chacha showed how to get that. Hopefully that trend will go on from now on. So who cares if some [ ] has lots of time to write poems or not he will be known as a fighter to us.

MODs i was stunned to see how you let people disgrace a test crickter in your FAN website.. Its a shame to bangla cricket and bangladesh. :sorry:

I WAS also surprised to see after that many posts in this forum you failed to understand the real message (Sarcasm) here.

CHAHA had lost his respect by announcing his retirement couple of times and by tagging himself with the team not by merit but by pure JACK.

NOW AGAIN he started playing the same old bull sh**.We the fan loves him and will remember him as a motivator but that did not even give him rights to shut the door for other young talents.

CHACHAS' staying there for that long without any real reasons give us the voice, which us, fans rendered here in this way.

I hope players will realize in the future when the time comes for them to retire and they'll get a farewell.I can not but feel pity for nannu and bulbul,they werw good players in their time but they didnt get the fact that their time was gone,so they neither retired nor could return to the team.From that point of view,its a good move from chacha,he at least is getting a farewell and i hope this trend will continue,players will retire when its time,not when they are thrown away.
And chacha's recent form with the national team has not been so good,butwe must be grateful to him for helping reorganize our team after the disasterous world cup.
With all of his recent form in mind,i must say that he was a real :tiger: when it was his time to be one.
Goodbye CHACHA,but we will not miss you as you went at the right time,you are dying as an old man.

Well said ... He was and is a real motivator ... he did manage to get the best out of his co-players ... even when he was relinquished from captaincy ... the performance of BD in the 1-day series in England this past shows that ... the whole BD team was down/dejected after the abysmal show in the test series against England ... there were rumours of division within the team ... ppl being not happy w/ the coach / physio ... there wasn't any unity in the team ... the arrival of Khaled Mahmood changed the complexion of the team ... their performance in the rest of the tour showed that ... This trait of Chacha will definitely live on ...

Former captain to retire

Khaled Mahmud calls it quits

Khaled Mahmud, the former Bangladesh captain, has announced he is to quit international cricket. This isn't the first time he has made plans to retire: he declared the same decision last October before quickly denying the rumour as speculation. Now, however, his decision seems more certain.

"I will play the last match of my international career tomorrow," he said. "I feel it is time to quit."

Mahmud, 34, played 12 Tests and 76 one-dayers for his country and made his debut in 1998 against India. On Monday, he will play against Sri Lanka for the first of three one-dayers.

He made his Test debut against Zimbabwe in November 2001 and, in Tests, scored 266 runs and claimed 13 wickets. Although he hasn't played in a Test since November 2003, he has been a regular fixture in the shorter version of the game; he took career-best figures of 4 for 19 against Zimbabwe in March 2004.

After the three one-dayers, Sri Lanka face Bangladesh for two Tests, the first of which is at Chittagong on February 28.

Wisden overview

Khaled Mahmud was arguably one of the least talented cricketers ever to captain his country, but he brought an amateur's enthusiasm to one of the least palatable tasks in world cricket. Despite scoring a composed 47 on his international debut, against India at Dhaka in 1997-98, it was as a wobbly seam bowler that he made his mark on the game, for better or for worse. During the 1999 World Cup, Mahmud made the most of England's early-season conditions to take three top-order wickets for 31 runs, as Pakistan crashed to a 62-run defeat at Northampton. It was a result that all but sealed Bangladesh's elevation to Test status. A good communicator and team man, he succeeded Khaled Mashud as Bangladesh captain, following their humiliating 2003 World Cup. But it was during this period that his Test bowling average briefly ballooned above 400 - the worst mark of all time. As Bangladesh's run of failures continued, Mahmud became the target for a hostile crowd, particularly during his final series in charge, against England in late 2003. He was dropped from the squad soon afterwards, and retired, only to reverse his decision shortly afterwards. Though he hasn't played a Test since November 2003, he's been a regular in the one-day squad and took career-best figures of 4 for 19 against Zimbabwe in March 2004. Mahmud announced intentions to retire in October 2005 but once again did a turnaround and said that he would continue playing. He was named in the squad for the home series against Sri Lanka in February 2006.Andrew Miller

Frankly speaking, I am really hurt to see the response in Banglacricket – certainly he doesn’t deserve that kind of treatment from the fans. If he is not good enough and BD doesn’t need his service, then simply he was not supposed to be included in the team. That was selectors fault not his.

Well, he might not be the best but he gave a lot to our cricket. His team spirit and devotion was notable. Just look that the picture below – he leads his team with 4 wicket haul at Multan test. Look he was also crying (he doesn’t cry only at time of retirement) when he could not finish the job of winning first test at Multan 2003.

Lets not argue and bicker for one day and give accolades to a man who has served our country greatly and who will continue to serve our country as a leader for a long time.

Here are some things I remember.

1. Tikolo's wicket in the ICC final. Tikolo scored 141.
2. Hitting a 6 in the final against Kenya.
3. 3 wickets agains Paistan and Man of the Match in the world cup.

Please add yours.

4. His debut score of 47 against India during the Silver Jubilee Independence Cup. Calm and composed, mixed with some lusty hitting. Came at a time when we were 24/4 batting first. He and Aminul Islam repaired the damage, and Bangladesh went on to score 190 allout, which at that time was considered to be a really good batting performance from our team.

5. Leading Bangladesh team out of the low point they had reached during the last world cup.

6.Taking seven wickets in Multan.

7. Announcing his retirement from international cricket after loosing captaincy (everything went down for him after that point).

8. His success in regrouping and motivating the bunch after a horrible world cup. He captained the team with admirable enthusiasm and it was obvious from his body language in the field that he earned the respect of his teammates. Props to him for helping us rebuild just when we started getting bashed right and left. I'd like to see him stay in the cricket industry and help our cricket at various age-based levels.

9. Almost turning an ODI around for us just when all hopes were lost in that game against Zimbabwe. It was indeed a spirited effort from him even though we couldn't manage the win in the end.

3. Created model for future mediocre cricketers as to how to stick with the national team even after talented and proven contemporaries like Bulbul are let go.

Oh well, tired of typing.

Regardless, here's sincerely wishing that Chacha can do something of substance for the team in his last match. May he go out with a bang!

Sorry

he will be very much involved with bd cricket after retirement.evrybody who are associated with bd cricket love chacha.i have a feeling that he will be the next manager of bd team.he announced retirement after latif's removal and bcb indicated that they want someone with cricketing background.plus,chacha also wants to join the admin after retirement.so dont be surprised to see him with the team in the very next tour.

বিদায় “লড়াকু মাহমুদ”

http://www.mybanglamusic.com/images/Khaled-Mahmud.jpg
বগুড়ায় উৎসবের আমেজ। তবে বিয়ের উৎসবে সানাই যেমন করুণ সূর ছড়িয়ে দেয়, শহীদ চান্দু স্টেডিয়ামেও কাল বিকেল থেকে তেমনি একটা করুণ রাগিনী বাজতে শুরু করেছে। এই স্টেডিয়ামের শুরুর সঙ্গেই যে মিলে যাচ্ছে খালেদ মাহমুদের শেষটা। ’৯৯ বিশ্বকাপে পাকিস্থানের বিপক্ষে যে জয়ে বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটে নতুন যুগের সূচনা, সেটির নায়কের বিদায়বেলাটাও কি এমন স্মরণীয় হয়ে থাকবে? তাহলে যে রূপকথা হয়ে যায়। তা রূপকথাও তো কখনো কখনো বাস্তবে নেমে আসে। আজ রাতে শহীদ চান্দু স্টেডিয়ামেও আসুক না আরেকবার।

আজকের পর সেই খালেদ মাহমুদ বাংলাদেশের একজন সাবেক ক্রিকেটার। হয়তো মাঠে থাকবেন না, থাকবেন না ড্রেসিং রুমেও। কিন্তু অমরজ্যোতি দিয়ে ক্রিকেটে আসা মাহমুদের অদৃশ্য একটা উপস্থিতি যে বাংলাদেশ দলের আবহে মিশে থাকবে, সতীর্থদের আবেগ মাখানো অনুভুতি যেন সেটাই বলছে।

“অবসরের বিবেচনায় নয়, যোগ্য হিসাবেই শ্রীলংকার বিপক্ষে প্রথম ওয়ানডে’র দলে আছেন মাহমুদ”
–ডেভ হোয়াটমোর

“অবসরের সিদ্ধান্তটা সুজন ভাইয়ের ব্যক্তিগত। তবে আমি চেয়েছিলাম উনি আরো কিছুদিন খেলুন। অনেকে বলেন টিম স্পিরিটের জন্যই সুজন ভাইয়ের দলে থাকা উচিত। কিন্তু আমি সেটা কখনোই মনে করিনি। পারফরমার হিসাবেই তাকে দলে চাইতাম আমি”
–হাবিবুল বাশার সুমন

“চাচা আর খেলবে না ভাবতেই খারাপ লাগছে। আমরা অনেক দিন ধরেয় একসঙ্গে খেলেছি। চাচার অনুপস্থিতিটা তাই খুব বেশি অনুভব করব আমি। চাচার মধ্যে লড়াই করার মানসিকতাটা সবসময়ই দেখেছি। অন্যরা যেসময়টাতে ভেঙ্গে পড়ে, চাচা তখন ঘুরে দাঁড়ানোর সাহস জোগাত সবাইকে। তার অবসরে আমরা একজন লড়াকু ক্রিকেটারকেই হারালাম।“
–খালেদ মাসুদ পাইলট

“ড্রেসিং রুমে খুব বেশি সময় ও চুপ করে থাকতে পারত না। হয়তো কোন কারণে চারদিকে নিস্তব্ধতা। ওই সময় সবার আগে যে লোকটির কন্ঠ সবার আগে শোনা যেত, সে সুজন। এমনকি নিজের খারাপ সময়েও নিজেকে খুব বেশি সময় তাকে মন খারাপ করে থাকতে দেখিনি”
–জাভেদ ওমর

“আরেকজন খালেদ মাহমুদের জন্ম কবেয় হবে আমি জানি না। তবে ওর মতো ক্রিকেটার বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটের জন্য খুবই প্রয়োজন। পুরো দলটাকে চাঙ্গা রাখে সে। টিম স্পিরিট বলেন কিংবা লড়াই করার মানসিকতা- সব কিছুতেই সবার চেয়ে এগিয়ে ও”
–আতহার আলী খান

“আজ যে এই পর্যন্ত এলাম, তাতে চাচার অবদান অনেক। দল এবং দলের বাইরে তার অনুপ্রেরণা, সাহস আমাকে সব সময় প্রেরণা জুগিয়েছে। আজকের পর সে সবই অতীত। হয়তো দেখা হবে, কথা হবে, ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটে হয়তো একসঙ্গে খেলবেনও। কিন্তু ড্রেসিং রুমে চাচার সেই অনুপ্রেরণা পাবেন কোথায়? বিদেশ সফর এবং হোম সিরিজেও তাকে খুব মিস করব। আমার ক্রিকেটার হওয়ার পেছনে তার অবদান কোনদিন ভুলব না”
–মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল

২০০৩ বিশ্বকাপের পর যে ঘোর তমশায় দলের দায়িত্ব নিয়েছিলেন, তাতে আধিনায়ক খালেদ মাহমুদকে অবশ্যই মনে রাখতে হবে। তবে ক্রিকেটার খালেদ মাহমুদের আসল পরিচয় তো অন্য। সংকল্প, লড়াই আর দৃঢ় প্রতিজ্ঞা দিয়ে প্রতিভার ঘাটতিও যে অনেকটাই ঢেকে দেয়া যায়- মাহমুদের ক্যারিয়ার তো তারই ডকুমেন্টারি।

মাহমুদকে নিয়ে যে কোন লেখায় “লড়াকু” শব্দটা কোন না কোনভাবে এসেছেই। বিদায়বেলায় সেটিকেই মনে হচ্ছে তার যথার্থ স্বীকৃতি। বিদায় “লড়াকু মাহমুদ”।

Though I am as fanataic as Sauron againest Chacha's inclusion in the team. I still disagree that for he got his place on merit. He is just occupying Rajjak's place. If this time he retire (I have still doubt a 3 wicket/40+ run he would be in claiming due to presurre of Jonogon) out of him we could have a good manager. From all the comments of the players I find that he is a good communicator and motivator. So he could be the next Manager

Chacha, what a spirited player you are...We will remember you forever...whatever the other guys (within or outside this forum) says

Wish you can score 45 runs (to reach 1000 ODI runs) and grab 3 wickets (to reach 70 wickets mark)

Khaled Mahmud, a veteran of 76 ODIs, chose to sign off in style. After seeing off the new ball he began to build the momentum. Dilhara Fernando was pulled for a stunning six and then slashed for a four. Hasantha Fernando was driven for two fours. Unfortunately for him and his side, he kept losing his partners. Finally Mahmud also fell, trapped by Sanath Jayasuriya, as he missed an attempted sweep and left to a standing ovation.

Standing Ovation -- that's what he deserved.
Hats off to the fighting cricketer.

Khaled Mahmud, Bangladesh's veteran allrounder and former captain, finally bowed out after the first ODI against Sri Lanka at Bogra. And he signed off with a gutsy 36 which rescued his side from ignominy, leaving the field to a standing ovation from a capacity crowd.

Mahmud's announcements of his impending retirement had become as frequent as his Test wickets, but his decision to hang on for one last day in the sun worked out well. It could have gone horribly wrong, but he saved one of his better performances with the bat until the end. It was a far cry from when he was booed off by home supporters after an abject performance - both personally and by his team - against England at Chittagong in 2003-04.

His stats do not make pretty reading. In 77 ODIs he scored 991 runs at 14.36 and took 67 wickets at 42.76 with an economy rate of 5.07. He also played 12 Tests, scoring 266 runs at 12.09 and capturing 13 wickets at 64.00. But against that, it should be remembered that he was part of a team that was being beaten regularly, and for some of that time had the added burden of the captaincy. His first-class record, however, is far more impressive.

While those statistics were often ridiculed on the international stage - never more so than when he briefly had a Test bowling average of over 400 - he stuck to the task in hand, and was an valued contributor in a young squad off the field. At 35, he was a positive geriatric in such a youthful side.

Mahmud will continue to play club cricket, and the chances are that he will pop up again in some capacity. Bangladesh cannot afford to lose someone with his wealth of experience.
