He played his card right. There's no better time to retire.
Thanks Khaled Mashud for the great memories. And I shall never forget that six you have hit in the last over against Kenya in the ICC trophy which helped take us to the World Cup Cricket. I won't forget that kiss that you gave on your bat after that shot. Truly, that showed a real Tiger in you.
It's unfortunate that your career had to end in the way it did. You are still capable of doing better than anyone in the country with those pair of gloves. But since the model for cricket is changing, there are changing team requirements which others are filling in more effectively.
Once again...thank you for leading us to the world of international cricket, then to the world of Test cricket, and then to all those unforgettable memories.
