It is not yet known who will be the captain of the Bangladesh team in the Asia Cup T20. However, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon said that there are 3 cricketers in the race to become the captain.
Papon faced the media after the BCB board meeting on Thursday (August 4). It was assumed that he will announce the name of the new T20 captain at this time. However, Papon said that it is not possible to announce the captain's name for now.
Stating that the captain has not been finalized yet, he said that the current captain Mahmudullah Riyad and 4 cricketers were being considered by the board as the captain.
Apart from Riyad, the remaining three cricketers are - Shakib Al Hasan, Litton Das, and Nurul Hasan Sohan. One of them showed no interest in taking charge of the Asia Cup as a captain. As a result, there are 3 cricketers who are in the list of being future captain.
Papon said, “There were more names. First came Litton Das, followed by Sohan, who is said by many to be good for the future. If one is the captain, the other will be the vice-captain. There are so many things, no matter who makes it, you have to talk to him first. Some terms and conditions have to be fixed. All these are left, so I think you will know about the captaincy very soon.”
When asked about the possibility of Shakib becoming the T20 captain, he said, “Out of the 4 names we mentioned, there was one who didn’t show interest. Now you have to sit with them. Among them, Sohan is injured. If I tell it now, then you will know everything. Whether Shakib will be the captain or not, I will not reveal now.”
