Shakib Al Hasan’s controversial contract issue had become quite uproarious in the cricket world. But in that excitement, Shakib himself poured water. Clearing all doubts, he canceled the contract with Betwinner’s company. The world’s best all-rounder chose the country’s cricket by canceling the contract.
The Asia Cup team can be announced today. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said this. But now the big question is – who will be the captain of the Bangladesh T20 team?
Shakib was the first choice on the captaincy list for so long. But his controversial contract dampened much of that prospect. But he has now severed all ties with betting. Apart from that, Liton Das and Nurul Hasan Sohan who are on the preferred list, are unable to stay on the team due to injury. So it was expected that Mahmudullah can be the captain in the Asia Cup if not Shakib.
But even that possibility is now almost gone. Because Shakib has walked out of his controversial contract. As a result, he is naturally in the Asia Cup team. Therefore, the name of the world’s best all-rounder is now coming back as a leader. In that case, Mahmudullah can be excluded from the Asia Cup. Because recently he is having a bad time with the bat. But the answer to everything can be known tomorrow.
It will be known who is the new T20 captain of Bangladesh only when the Asia Cup team is announced.
The official deadline for the Asia Cup team announcement was August 8. It was initially extended by three days by the BCB. BCB could not announce the team by that deadline on Thursday. So the wait continues.
BCB is thinking about giving the captaincy in the long term. BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon told reporters on Thursday, “I will disclose it with the captaincy team.” We are looking for long-term positions, not part-time. Not just Shakib, anyone, what is the point of captaining someone who is not in the squad? We are taking some time to fix the team. The team will be informed about the decision tomorrow instead of today.
Apart from this, Papon said about the team formation process, we have to think afresh about team selection. There are some basic rules, there is no scope to deviate from these rules. We will let you know as soon as everything is finished.
