Mushfiqur, however, said he will be available “to play franchise leagues when the opportunity arrives”.
This comes at a time when he was undergoing poor form in T20Is, particularly in the ongoing Asia Cup where he had scores of 1 and 4 and dropped a crucial catch during the team’s do-or-die match against Sri Lanka. Eventually, Bangladesh were knocked out of the competition.
I would like to announce my retirement from T20 INTERNATIONALS and focus on Test and ODI formats of the game. I will be available to play franchise leagues when the opportunity arrives. Looking forward to proudly represent my nation in the two formats-MR15
