He did not say he will stay. He just said he doesn't want to think about it now in the middle of the cup as it will put extra pressure on him and the team and emotion can be cause of mistakes.

What I don't understand is why he doesn't want to swing the ball, he is opening the bowling and then bowling cutters by using his fingers. If things are not working then surely he should try to change something about his bowling especially using the new ball to swing . The commentators also noticed this about his bowling.

He lost his edge as a FB long time ago. What he was doing the last 4-5 years was: knowing his physical limitation using his experience and intelligence to minimize his weakness and expoit his opponent's (batsman) weakness.




But we can do that for so long until the old and injured body revolt. I hope he is intellegent enough to know that now he is hurting his team and no point to extend this painful journey.


Its nothing wrong if, for the sake of the team, he take the next two games off due to injury/not fit enough. And no one will be blaming him for that. Ideally that should be the best he can do for the team right now.

^Agree. Take a bow, Mash. You have done enough. You were the inspirational leader that was needed to transform the team from below avg to a pretty good one. To take us to the next level we can no longer afford to carry passengers.

All his technical captaincy skills (fielding changes, bowling changes, etc.) are transferable. Someone could just receive the instructions from him via bluetooth.

Regarding the non technical skills (ego management, inspiration, etc.), those are less easily transferable. But it can still be done if remains with the team as a team manager, or something like that.

Most MPs in Bd run their businesses, which take a up a lot of time, and then they do their MP work as a part time gig. Mash could decide not to become a businessman, and a be a team manager, and then do his MP work part time.

I personally think MP should be a full time job taken more seriously, but hey, I am just reporting to you what happens currently. And so Mash could juggle both.

Kintu ekhon shey eki boley? "WC-er porely reite korbo na". Eta ki mamar barir abdaar?


Lebu beshi kochlailee Titaa hoye jai. He continue to play like this, eventually he will lose all the respect and support that he has earned all these year.... the inevitable exit will be a painful and less graceful one... who knows he may even lose his popularity and MP in next election,

Sad but true...

Or perhaps in this case, a villain to his own people.

We're playing only a handful of ODIs after WC to end of 2020. Rather, we'll play more T20I matches leading to T20I WC'20. Don't really see much of a logic why Mash should linger around after the WC.

But, yeah, totally understand if he doesn't want to get carried away with his emotions and want to stay focused till end of the WC, by not thinking about the retirement atm.

The way he brought his whole family (including his parents and brother) to England, I think it's pretty obvious that he will make the big announcement there.

If Pak match becomes insignificant i.e win or lose we are out then I think he'll make the announcement

Thank you for playing as the specialist captain all through the world cup, if only you put aside your ego and benched yourself for the greater good of the team and let us play with 11 men

Dear Mash,
It has been a long journey. Thank you for your services. Now it is time to rest that knee and enjoy retired life. Saifuddin has you covered. Don't worry about the team, we will be fine with the resources we have.

Love and respect.

Your diehard fan

Just announce your retire Mashrafe. That will give the players extra boost to play better 5th July 19, for you too.

You’ve been an wonderful servant to Bangladesh cricket. An amazing leader and we all love you and thank for your service, leadership. But like all good things comes to an end. We wish you and happy, even more successful life after cricket, all the best wishes to you and your family. We hope you come back and coach Bangladesh cricket team because with you as being a leader from coaching role, Bangladesh will thrive more just like how they started thriving under your captaincy.


Thanks Mashrafe Bin Mortaza.
My all time Fav BD cricketer.

Best regards. Your number 1 fan from UK.

Benching himself and playing who? Rahi? Or Miraz?
I reckon he should’ve sat out few games early on, maybe against England and Aus. But he wants to play it all. He deserves the final games as a sending off. But definitely could’ve rested few games in between.

One thing for. And am sure even Mashrafe will acknowledge if. In Saifuddin Bangladesh have found a good replacement for Mashrafe. Saif may never be the bowler mash was at his peak because Mash was hitting 140k’s and stuffs but Saif has his own ways of bowling and can definitely bat with a decent technique and certainly has the power as Mashrafe.

He will want to retire in Bangladesh. But really, he should retire now and announce the Pak match to be his last.

If Mash retires, and takes Rahim with him, he truly will be the greatest of all time!

Here are stats for pacers in Asia for last three years, who bowled at least 100 overs here in the period -

http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...s;type=bowling

Fizz comes at the top if you rank them by average (yep, better than Bumrah), Mash as sixth. Mash's average (28) has been far better than likes of Bhuvi (35.2), Lakmal (35.6), and Malinga (39.3).

Like I was saying in the other thread, let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Mash was the wrong man to lead us in England, he should have realized that much after CT'17. But now that's over, he's still one of world top pacers in subcontinental conditions. If he can maintain his fitness, it's prolly not the worst thing for Bangladesh cricket if he continues for now, and wants a dignified retirement after BD vs World series next March.

I think we need Mushfiq's batting. But, Mushfiq should stop keeping permanently.

Mash's retirement issue is becoming too political - he will retire only after a home series where Bangladesh is assured to win. That's the directive BCB got from the higher up.
