Unhappy Mash considering retirement in T20

Many of us thought so. But still difficult to accept. http://http://www.kalerkantho.com/print-edition/sports/2016/02/28/330002

Here's to all the haters, happy now? If some of you think this guy doesn't play for his country and is being selfish by playing T20s then I really don't have any words for you!

It's in our gene we cant help it. Forget giving proper respect we will degrade our best citizens at every given chance. We dont deserve Mash it is as simple as that.

Mashrafe has been a great asset no doubt. And he is selfless. Only a retard will claim that.

The thing is, he never gives his 100%. Not even close. He gives his 200% all the time.

Even despite all that he struggles which doesn't help the team's cause. We need him for his leadership but besides that he is a liability in the T20 format, always has been as a player.

Now as a fan, I don't want people from the rest of the world look into Mashrafe and make negative comments because they don't know how good Mashrafe was or what he has gone through. We do. So if he retires now atleast it will save him from those comments. But hey I don't care what the rest of the world thinks.

Even if he retires, he should be around mentoring the team. He has always been giving his 200% and will continue to do so for his country. But maybe not on the field. It's already a miracle that he is standing right now leave alone playing cricket professionally.

We love Mashrafe, but we also love Bangladesh cricket. And we want Bangladesh to perform well and even if it means that Mashrafe gets the boot then so be it, and I know Mashrafe will be around the team constantly giving words of encouragement or tips as to how to perform.

I guess he feels like he is not contributing enough in this format. I doubt there is a fitness issue. Mash is still fit enough to play another 2-3 years and if he can play the 100 over game, he can definitely play the 40. I hope the coaches and the board talks him back into the game. He needs to improve his game not leave it all together.

I think he made a good plan on his retirement, he not only wants to leave head high but also wants to provide opportunity for young stars.

Champion Tiger hearted captain and player! Good desicion to retired from T20s end of World T20 2016. We don't play lot T20s anyway, so tbh we wont really miss Mash. But ODI's we need him for I'd say another 3years till Wc'19 if he can manage it till then.

Good. It's the right decision if true.

All good things come to an end. I'm sad but happy at the same time. His is a department that is amply covered now. We need that spot to be given to someone else. Hopefully, another mainstay.

But sth the scorecard doesnt reflect is his tremendous captaincy. Bowling changes, motivating players, energizing them, running up to them encouraging them, field placements. Even at a point he held Shakib by his shoulders, put his palms on his face as if telling him, i knew you could bounce back. I dont think any other player in the side is capable of leading the team like mash can.

Bhai, find me one person hare who "hates on" Mashrafi. Most of us say the same thing the article mentions: that Mash is no longer an automatic selection in the T20 side. We say this with the utmost respect.

He is gonna retire after the WC, let's not debate his selection in the team anymore.

Somebody just needs to relay this message across to Mash, let's say Mahmudullah became captain next and Bangladesh wins a major trophy like T20 WC or Asia cup or the 50 overs WC, who will be known as the greatest captain from Bangladesh of all time? Not Mash but Mahmudullah! So, he needs to motivate himself to win a major ICC trophy, inspire others and also perform and lead the way. All great captains are great not because they are winning bilateral series but because they win a major ICC event.

To me and perhaps many others, it is offensive to read posts where people are calling mash "useless", "passenger" etc and calling for his retirement. Mash is as selfless as any cricketer in our history. He will be the first to leave the side or give up captaincy when he feels he is hurting the team. I feel he is still a good bowler and an exceptional leader. The team is better off with him than without. He gets the important breakthroughs and he knows how to rotate the pacers better than any bd captain i have seen.

Yah, calling for retirement is almost the same as kick him out of the team.

Well, thank god the team management atleast has this sense that Mash is needed to hold this team together. They have been winning only for a year consistently now, make that atleast 3 then we can truly say we have arrived.

People don't realize the true importance of Mash, if you are a well wisher of Bangladesh team you will pray hard he plays atleast till the Champions Trophy or all the hard work could be undone fast.

The best captain we have ever had. Nobody else can unite the team like he does. Granted, he is far from his best as a player due to numerous injuries and surgeries. But his dedication cannot be questioned. Did you guys see him trying to take the third run in the last ball yesterday with his leg? That right there shows what kind of commitment he has playing for his country. Thankfully we will get his service for a little longer in the ODI format. Let's enjoy and celebrate the last few matches that he has left in his career. Legend.

So is Riyad the best person to replace him? Over Shakib and Mushfiq?

I will prefer Riyad. He has shown his captaincy ability in BPL.

Hell no. No more Mushy or Shakib as captain. These two lack in both leadership and tactics. We will start losing all the close games. In fact i am worried about Mushy running mutafizur to the ground in Tests.

Mash is doing the right thing. By retiring now, mash will do a great service for the national team as well as to his own legacy. His skill and performance is declining; soon people will be calling for his head. After all, one person is not bigger than the team.
Most players from the sub-continent do not know when to quit cause they are too emotional and want to maximize every bit of self-pleasure from the game they love. But by doing so, they ruin their legacy.
All's well that ends well. Good luck to Mash in ending his T20 career on a high and thanks for perfectly timed T20 retirement.

That is what you are incapable to understand. Does not matter with how much respect (or hate) you say it, it is still highly offensive. Let him decide god damn it

And what my dear friend you don't seem to understand is no one, even living legends should be beyond constructive criticism. Steve Waugh was a living legend. He did not want to retire from ODIs. He even started bowling again. Aussie board said - sorry mate - you focus on Tests. We are not like India where Tendu was such a semi-deity that BCCI let him play on beyond his sell-by-date so he could get his 100th hundred (in a losing cause mind you). I suspect that, depending on your party affiliation, anything one says in criticism of Hasina or Khaleda also will be perceived by you as "hating on".

I remember Habibul Bashar got overly emotional because Jamie Siddons called him "buira". Jamie was right - Bashar had totally lost the reflexes that made him our "Bangla Bradman" or "Mr. 50".

Jadukor and Tanvir - I agree that calling him a "passenger" is stating things too strongly but do consider that in most other countries the T20 squad typically does not contain senior players unless they are in prime health and having an exceptional season (like Hogg or Tate).

I am not sure how Mash is a liability. What has he done wrong in the UAE and Pakistan games? Did he keep the runs down? Did he get wickets? Did he marshal resources well as captain? I keep hearing he is not fit and he is reaching his end but i see he bowled 135 kph vs UAE and attemped 3 runs in the last ball against sri lanka. So how is it that we are so keen to write him off? Are we that eager to see Rony?
