Mashrafe Bin Mortaza's retirement issue came to the fore once again after the inclusion of the two ODI matches in Bangladesh's home series against Zimbabwe.
The series is scheduled to be taken place in February instead of March and originally comprised with one Test and five T20 International matches.  However the latest change of the itinerary saw the inclusion of two ODI matches here, raising the speculation whether those two ODIs were added to give Mashrafe a befitting farewell at home ground.
Mashrafe, still the captain of the ODI team, played his last international match against Pakistan in World Cup 2019. Though he was ready to play against Sri Lanka, in the last minute he had to opt out the three-match ODI series due to injury.
There was whisper about his retirement after the last match in the World Cup but at the last minute he had to change his mind due to the insistence of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan Papon who said that Mashrafe will retire at home ground and if necessary they will organize a special ODI match for him.
Mashrafe hasn't been playing longer version cricket since 2009 while had already retired from the T20 cricket. Only format he is playing is ODI cricket.
