He played his 50th Test against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club in July this year, which was a turning point for the Bangladeshi all-rounder.

In a statement, Mahmudullah said, “It is not easy to leave the format that I have been a part of for so long. I always thought of going high and I believe it will end my Test career.” It’s the right time.”
He further added, “I would like to express my gratitude to the BCB President for supporting me when I return to the Test team.
