Mohammad Nabi will call time on his Test career after the ongoing one-off Test match against Bangladesh.
''Yes, he [Nabi] will retire after the ongoing Test match,'' Afghanistan team manager, Nazim Jar Abdurrahimzai, confirmed to Cricbuzz.
The major reason behind Nabi's decision to step away from the longest format wasn’t stated but the decision might help him prolong his white-ball career.
Nabi is playing only his third Test match since Afghanistan were granted Test status in 2017. Afghanistan aren't a part of the ongoing World Test Championship cycle and that might have urged Nabi to hang up his boots.
Nabi continues to remain a hot property in T20 leagues around the world and had a prolific season with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL recently. He will also be one of the key players for Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup in Australia next year.
