Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is but to announce who would take the captaincy function for Bangladesh Test and T20 aspects in the absence of normal captain Shakib Al Hasan.
However, BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon has hinted at striking the accountability on Mahmudullah Riyad’s shoulder as soon as once more, similar to January previous this 12 months.
When Shakib had sustained an harm in the overall of the tri-nation collection towards Sri Lanka in January, BCB discovered a short lived answer in Mahmudullah. And it’s virtually sure from the BCB boss’s phrases that the board could be going against the similar path for the 2 coming near near collection towards Zimbabwe and Windies.
While speaking to the media Thursday in the Dhaka Club, Papon mentioned, “Shakib is the captain (Test and T20), and we’ve his deputy in Mahmudullah. Quite naturally, in absence of the captain, the vice-captain is meant to guide the workforce. This is the rule of thumb and has been the custom for a very long time.
“Now if we appoint a new captain for the time being, will we remove him once Shakib is fit and back again? Bringing a new captain and removing another doesn’t look good. I think Mahmudullah should take the captaicy baton until Shakib is fully fit.”
Meanwhile, BCB has already declared the 15-member Bangladesh squad for the ODIs towards Zimbabwe, with Mashrafe Bin Mortaza closing to take rate of the aspect. There is a brand new face in the workforce as the all-rounder Fazle Mahmub Rabbi were given his maiden nationwide workforce name.
