Habibul Bashar announces retirement

Bangladesh's most successful international captain Habibul Bashar announced today that was retiring from all cricket. Bashar formally notified the BCB today about his decision to end his playing career.

"It has been a terrific journey for me and after two decades of international, first class and cub cricket I feel I have reached the end of the road. The Port City League (PCL) T20 in Sharjah next week will be my last competition as a player," said Bashar in his letter to the BCB.

"It is never easy to give up the game you love so much and especially in my case this moment is very emotional as cricket has been my life.

"I thank the BCB for giving me the honour of captaining Bangladesh and for the support throughout my career. I will cherish the memories of my time in the Bangladesh dressing room and my heartfelt gratitude goes out to all the players, coaches, team officials and staff I have had the privilege of knowing and working with.

"There will always be a special place in my heart for the fans for their warmth and genuine affection.

"As I bid bye I also feel excitement at the way the Bangladesh Cricket Team is progressing. I wish them every success."

BCB President AHM Mustafa Kamal, FCA, MP said Bashar's legacy will inspire future generations of Bangladeshi cricketers.

"We are indebted to this fantastic cricketer who had instilled belief in the players and inspired them to perform. Under his able leadership Bangladesh had tasted the first Test victory and had progressed to the Super Eight stages of the 2007 Cricket World Cup. With his batting he showed others the way to dominate and score at international level. We hope that he will continue to be associated with Bangladesh cricket after his retirement."

Thank you very much Habibul Bashar for your service to the national team.

We would remember you as the lone fighter in the team. You were the first batsman who started the counter attack from Bangladesh's part.

Wish you best of luck in your next life. Looking forward for your involvement in Bangladesh cricket. I would love to see you as our national selector. :)

N.B. Nice post Shardul. Love it. :)

Buddy he didnt die. I think its rude to say it to someone like him...

Anyways, a true BD legend. And in my eyes, the best BD captain ever. We still really need him in number 3. Hopefully he will continue his involvement with BD cricket. And kick out these current selectors and be a great selector in the future.

as the BC banner says.... Thankyou Habibul Bashar, thankyou for all your services. Enjoy your retirement but dont go away from cricket....

I remember buying a poster of BD cricket team in 1997 (after BD won ICC), and they had Bashar's name interchanged with Khaled Mahmud Shujon's (what can you do when all the focus was on Akram Khan in the middle :) ).....

He was the first consistent player that we produced. He tried his best with the limited talent he had. His service to bangladesh cricket will not be forgotten. Thank you HB.

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেটের সাবেক অধিনায়ক হাবিবুল বাশার সবধরণের ক্রিকেট থেকে অবসরের ঘোষণা দেবার পর বলেছেন আই সিএল-এ খেলা ছিল তাঁর কেরিয়ারের একটা বড় ভুল

বিবিসি বাংলাকে দেয়া এক একান্ত সাক্ষাৎকারে হাবিবুল বাশার বলেছেন তিনি আগেই বলেছিলেন ক্রিকেট খেলার প্রতি যেদিন তিনি উৎসাহ হারিয়ে ফেলবেন এবং বুঝবেন বাংলাদেশ টীমে খেলার আর কোনো সম্ভাবনা তাঁর নেই, সেদিন তিনি ক্রিকেট থেকে অবসর নেবেন৻ তিনি বলেছেন,
‘‘খেলা থেকে মোটিভেশন আর আমি পাচ্ছি না সেভাবে৻ খেলার ক্ষমতা আমি হারিয়ে ফেলিনি, রান আমি এখনও করছি, কিন্তু লড়াই করার জন্য ভেতর থেকে যে তাড়নাটা লাগে সেটা আমি হারিয়ে ফেলেছি৻``
লড়াই করার জন্য ভেতর থেকে যে তাড়না লাগে সেটা আমি হারিয়ে ফেলেছি৻
হাবিবুল বাশার




৩৭ বছর বয়স্ক এই সাবেক অধিনায়ক বিবিসি বাংলার মিজানুর রহমান খানকে বলেছেন তিনি যদি খেলতেনও তাহলেও বড়জোর আর দুতিন বছর খেলতে পারতেন৻ তাঁর এমনিতেই বাংলাদেশ টীমে বেশিদিন খেলার সম্ভাবনা যেখানে নেই, সেখানে খেলার উদ্যমও তিনি পাচ্ছেন না৻
ইন্ডিয়ান ক্রিকেট লীগে (আই সি এল) খেলার পর থেকে যেসব সমস্যার মুখে তিনি পড়েছিলেন, তা তাঁর এই সিদ্ধান্ত গ্রহণের পেছনে কোনো ভূমিকা রেখেছে কীনা, প্রশ্ন করা হলে তিনি বলেন,
‘‘আই সি এল-এ খেলা আমার লম্বা কেরিয়ারে ছিল একটা বড় ভুল৻ এ ভুল আমি আর কখনও করতে চাই না৻‘‘
তিনি বলেছেন অবসর নিলেও তিনি ভবিষ্যতে ক্রিকেটের সাথেই জড়িত থাকবেন৻
বাশার বাংলাদেশের হয়ে ৫০টি টেস্ট ম্যাচ খেলেছেন৻ এর মধ্যে ছিল ২০০০ সালে বাংলাদেশের প্রথম টেস্ট ম্যাচটি৻ ১৮টি টেস্টে তিনি দলের অধিনায়কত্ব করেছেন, যার মধ্যে একটি ম্যাচে বাংলাদেশ জয়ী হয় এবং ৪টিতে দল ড্র করে৻
তাঁর কেরিয়ারের সবচেয়ে উল্লেখযোগ্য অর্জন ২০০৫ সালে কার্ডিফে একদিনের আন্তর্জাতিকে অস্ট্রেলিয়ার বিরুদ্ধে জয় এবং ২০০৭-এর বিশ্বকাপে ভারতকে হারিয়ে সুপার এইটে ওঠা৻

Congratulations to Bashar for a his great contributions to Bangladesh cricket. At one time, his batting was the only sure thing on the Bangladesh team and his tally of Test half centuries will still take guys like Tamim and Shakib a few more years to catch up to.

Thank You for all the service. If you have a Tamim at top and Riyad , Mushy in the Middle you might have considered legend of the world not for Bangladesh Cricket

Sorry Boss,
mistake became wrong. I wanted to say R.I.P to his batting, not to him, his batting will be missed. I apologize for hurting you boss.

HB born in wrong time. When he played we lacked Tamim, Shakib, Mushy, Riyad and Nayeem. Now we got them but we are missing him . His place still remains void. I hope Johurul will fill this gap.
