The 2023 Asian Cup is scheduled to start on August 30 on the soil of Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This time 6 teams will take part in the Asia Cup. But even before the Asian Cup, Bangladesh’s star batsman Tamim Iqbal had announced his retirement from cricket, then withdrew his retirement following intervention by Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. He was ruled out of the 2023 Asian Cup due to injury and had decided to give up the captaincy of the ODI team. Now Bangladesh needs a new captain and a major update has been released.

Tamim Iqbal retired from the captaincy

According to Cricbuzz’s report, Bangladesh Cricket Board chief Nazmul Hasan said that in order to appoint the next national team captain after Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan’s availability had to be known. BCB officials insisted they would appoint the next ODI captain for a two-year term. Shakib is currently the Bangladesh Test and T20 captain. Previously, he also led the ODI team. Under his captain Bangladesh participated in ODI World Cup 2011 and he has extensive experience.

This player can become captain for two years

Nazmul Hasan said that we have not yet discussed the captaincy. We need to pause and think. I already said that if it was a series we could have chosen Liton Das as vice-captain, but now we have to think ahead. We have two problems. The ODI world is yet to come and the pressure of the World Championship is not low. If I decide to have a new boy, will he be able to withstand this pressure? And if we choose an experienced player as captain for a longer period of time and he is no longer available after a year, what do we do then?

Shakib Al Hasan is the first choice but can you say he will play for two years? That’s why we want to know their plans. I think Shakib is the easiest option and there is no problem. The captain of a bilateral series and a World Cup are two different things. Whether or not this affects Liton Das’s batting performance. we have to see We will make a decision without haste.

Was captain in all three formats

Shakib Al Hasan has captained Bangladesh in all three formats. He captained Bangladesh in 19 Tests, 50 ODIs and 39 T20 games. He captained 108 games across all three formats, scoring 3,632 runs and taking 184 wickets.
