Bangladesh is facing a lot of problems in their batting order specially in third & fourth. A batsman who has the most proper technique and patience usually comes to bat in three or four and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim has all the abilities to do so. But as he is the Captain, batsman and also the wicket keeper, its really hard to take this pressure too. Many people suggested Mushfiqur to give up keeping so that he can bat at four.

When reporter asked Mushfiqur Rahim in the press conference after the 2nd test what should be his role in the team, he said: “This is not happening according to my wish. In Sri Lanka series where I didn’t keep wickets it was not according to my wish too. I said a lot of times as a Cricketer I will not play for 40-50 years, I will play for 5-6 years more. I try to give my best for the team. For that, If I have to leave captaincy too I have no problem. My point is what team management wants me to do, according to it I try my best to support them.”
But today BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon said the opposite. He let us knew that Mushfiq was told to bat at number four but he didn’t agree to it. He also said Bangladesh need to improve a lot in the fielding section and informed that he will took some good initiatives for the South Africa tour. On the other side, for such accusations on Mushfiqur Rahim, it is not yet known what’s his answer to it.
