Sajedul Islam became the second Bangladesh Test cricketer after Enamul Haque Moni to take up the umpiring job
Former Bangladesh fast bowler Sajedul Islam began the second innings of his career by taking up umpiring as his profession.
He made his umpiring debut Wednesday during the Sheikh Kamal U-18 National Cricket Competition 2020-21 match between Sylhet U-18 and Barisal U-18 at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishthan.
By doing so, he became the second Bangladesh Test cricketer after Enamul Haque Moni to take up the umpiring job.
As a cricketer, Sajedul's career was not illustrious as he claimed just three wickets in three Test matches.
He made his debut in 2008 against New Zealand and played his last match in 2013 when Bangladesh faced off Zimbabwe.
He played a solitary T20 International in his career, which was also against Zimbabwe in 2013.
But in that match, he bowled just one wicket-less over conceding 15 runs.
He however, was a regular face in the domestic circuit.
He has so far played 99 first class matches, last of which came in last year, and claimed 241 wickets.
In 55 List A matches, he grabbed 67 wickets, while he also played seven T20 matches and bagged six wickets.
