Abdur Razzak and Shahriar Nafees have announced their retirement from all kinds of international and domestic cricket. The two cricketers, who added the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), officially announced their retirement.

Razzak and Nafees announced their retirement at a press conference at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in the capital, known as the ‘Home of Cricket’, on Saturday afternoon.

BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon and other board directors and officials were present at the occasion.

Nafees, on the other hand, is being appointed to a top post in the BCB’s cricket operations committee. Following this, they are giving farewell to the player’s life.
