<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/robiul-islam/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Robiul Islam</a>, who for a short time was the leader of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/bangladesh/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Bangladesh</a>'s Test bowling attack, has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. <p></p> <p></p>The decision comes at the age of 32, with Robiul having played two first-class and one List A games since 2016. He last played for Bangladesh in 2014. <p></p> <p></p>A prodigious mover of the cricket ball when at his prime in a brief career that spanned nine Tests, three ODIs and a solitary T20I, Robiul was a rare talent who emerged in a time where spin was the dominant Bangladesh skill. <p></p> <p></p>Despite a tremendous Test performance in 2013 against Zimbabwe, in which he was named Player of the Series for consecutive five-wicket hauls, Robiul fell out of favour with the Bangladesh selectors and later his domestic team. <p></p> <p></p>His career ends with 224 first-class wickets at an average of 30.78, 40 in List A and four from six T20 games.
