Bangladeshi player Abdur Razzak has officially been named as a part of the selector panel for the Bangladesh national team.
Way back in 2020, left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak was already offered to be a selector for the Bangladesh national team. However, he was unable to accept the job at that time because of the pandemic. Just recently, his inclusion has already been approved by Bangladesh Cricket Board. This was announced after the 9th meeting of the BCB board of directors.
Being appointed as the third senior selector, he will be working with former captains Minhajjul Abedin and Habibul Bashar. So far, Razzak hasn’t retired from playing competitive cricket yet but he is looking forward to his new role.
With that, he says, ‘My playing experience will certainly be valuable in this regard. I used to play cricket, and now I have to help build the national team. I have been captaining in domestic cricket for a long time and I have often helped form teams. It has usually gone well. But the stakes are higher here, and the expectations are more. But still, I believe I can manage it’.
‘I am pretty sure I have to (retire). I haven't mentioned it yet since I am awaiting the appointment letter but certainly when I join this new job, I have to quit (playing)’, he added.
The 38-year-old player stated that he thinks that he has good knowledge about the players since he is still working with them. He also thinks that it will be an advantage for him since he knows how these players react to certain situations.
Razzak is known for being the first Bangladesh bowler to pick up 200 ODI wickets and has scored 207 runs from 153 outings. He also holds the record for the fastest Bangladeshi half-century in the ODI format of cricket. He is also known for being an impressive player when it comes to domestic cricket.
