Shakib Al Hasan on retirement

“The 2025 Champions Trophy for ODIs and the 2024 T20 World Cup for T20Is. Tests may be sooner. Maybe (after the World Cup),” Shakib said. “I will retire all at once, but I will stop playing each format one by one. I will announce my retirement after the 2025 Champions Trophy,”. Shakib said in an interview with T-Sports.

The allrounder further said that

“Given the current reality, I am captain only till the World Cup. Not a day more,”. Shakib confessed. “I resigned from the captaincy on the 17th [of September]. I informed Papon bhai and emailed the CEO that I didn’t want to be the captain. The reasons were the same when I didn’t want to captain ahead of the Asia Cup. I don’t think my captaincy is adding value at this stage of my career. I wanted to just bowl my ten overs, give my best in fielding, and do my batting.”

“[Papon] described the situation to me. A captain has to do the job on and off the field. When I learned that the BCB, coach and team management were unanimous in their decision about me, then I took the captaincy,” Shakib added.
