Domingo wants Mahmudullah as captain in T20 World Cup
With the 33-year-old Mahmudullah also announced as the man to captain Bangladesh in their impending three-match T20I series against Pakistan, Domingo wants him to hold onto the post till the T20 World Cup as well. The South African is against the idea of changing the set-up in the run-up to the world event.
“I am hoping he leads us in the World Cup T20. He has my full support. I thought he did a great job in India. I have enjoyed working with him. I think he is a good professional. He has the respect of the change room. He is a world-class player. He is my captain,” said Domingo.
“Guy like Soumya, who batted at No.3 in India, may end up batting at No.6 in Pakistan. [Mahmudullah] Riyad may bat at No.5. Afif might come to No.3 or 4,” he said.
Domingo was also quite optimistic that the young talents in the squad will deliver their best to stake claim for T20 World Cup place.
“It will be the first time I will be working with Hasan Mahmud. I have seen some of his performances in the matches and nets of the Emerging Team. It is a young group of players and shows depth within our system. Hopefully some of these players can make a big play to get into the World Cup squad. It is not finalised yet.”
