Afghanistan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi will bring curtains down to his Test career after the ongoing one-off match against Bangladesh being played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
“Yes, he (Nabi) will retire after the ongoing Test match,” Afghanistan team manager Nazim Jar Abdurrahimzai confirmed.
It is understood that Nabi has taken this decision in a bid to prolong his white-ball career.
Including the ongoing Test, the 34-year-old has featured in only three red-ball matches.
A right-handed batsman and a handy off-spinner, Nabi’s game in white-ball cricket, especially in T20s, remains in good stead and he will be a key component of the Afghanistan team in next year’s T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia.
