BCB in captain crisis after losing Shakib

The absence of Shakib Al Hasan in the Bangladesh cricket team due to injury has raised questions about who will lead the team in the upcoming Test series against New Zealand. It’s been confirmed that Shakib will not be part of the squad for this series and will require six weeks to recover from his injury, which means he will also miss the Test series against New Zealand.

The question of who will lead the team in this Test series remains unanswered. Shakib has mentioned that he won’t captain the team after the World Cup, but it’s not clear if he had plans to captain the team in this Test series. However, his decision to travel to the United States to be with his family in mid-November has made it clear that he won’t be leading the team in this series.

This situation has left the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) searching for a solution to the Test captaincy dilemma. One option could be Liton Das as the vice-captain, but it’s unclear whether Liton is willing to take on the role of vice-captain. He may prefer a more straightforward leadership role. Additionally, Liton’s captaincy credentials have not been firmly established.

The BCB is also considering other candidates for the captaincy. Some sources suggest that Naimul Hassan and Mehedi Hasan Miraz are being considered as potential captains for the Test series. However, Jalaal Yunus, the head of cricket operations at the BCB, has not confirmed any names, stating that they need to focus on creating a strong team for the upcoming New Zealand tour. The decision on the captaincy is expected to be made after the World Cup.

In this situation, Nazmul Hossain and Mehedi Hasan Miraz are seen as potential candidates for the Test captaincy. Jalaal Yunus, the head of cricket operations at the BCB, has not indicated any specific names for the captaincy but mentioned the need to create a strong team for the New Zealand tour, considering the formidable opposition they will face.

Before deciding on the captaincy, it’s important to know Shakib’s future plans regarding leadership. The final decision on the Test captaincy and the leadership of the team in other formats will depend on Shakib’s own thoughts and preferences.
