Mahmudullah Riyad is losing leadership due to recent poor performance. Shakib Al Hasan may be made captain of the T20 team instead.
Not only losing the leadership, but Mahmudullah may also be removed from the team along with the loss of leadership. Like him, Mushfiqur Rahim, the former captain of the national team and an experienced cricketer, is going to be dropped from T20.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is going to make such a plan in view of the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October.
BCB wants to make Shakib Al Hasan T20 captain from the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe. But Shakib has already taken leave from Zimbabwe tour. That’s why Nurul Hasan Sohan, who is going to be appointed as Shakib’s deputy in T20, is supposed to serve as the captain in the tour of Zimbabwe.
