Shakib Al Hasan still out of consideration for captaincy role!
CRICDOT DESK : Although Fortune lost in Barisal final, Shakib Al Hasan had a great time in the eighth edition of BPL. The left-arm all-rounder has won the tournament four times in the history of the tournament. He took 18 wickets in bowling with 264 runs in batting. However, Shakib’s personal achievements have faded due to party failure.
Shakib has led Barisal brilliantly with his all-round performance. The team also fought on the trophy stage. Rumor has it that Shakib will return to the national team. Although BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon has hinted after the BPL final on Friday night, the all-rounder is not in the mood for leadership right now.
Asked if Shakib would be made captain again, Papon said, “Now is not the time to say. There is no question of saying it now. We are starting another series now. ‘
Khaled Mahmud Sujan, team director of the national team and director of the BCB, said at the Mirpur Stadium yesterday that he was impressed by Shakib’s leadership qualities in the BPL. But now there are national team captains in three formats. BCB is not thinking of change there. Muminul Haque in Tests, Tamim Iqbal in ODIs and Mahmudullah Riyad in T20s are leading Bangladesh.

Sujan said yesterday, ‘I think Shakib is a good captain. But those who are there now are not that bad. Mahmudullah is good as a captain. Tamim also has very good cricket knowledge. Shakib is probably doing very well. I have watched this tournament very closely, I know. Defending 143-145 runs is not an easy task as it has led Barisal. Shakib is the class captain. ‘It is unlikely that Shakib will return to lead Bangladesh. BCB does not want to deprive Tamim-Riyadh.
Sujan said, “The BCB must have a commitment with every captain. Maybe it was a long time then. How will you deprive Tamim? Tamim is not doing that badly. Bangladesh is in a very good position in the Cricket World Cup Super League. It’s not that Tamim doesn’t have game sense. Tamim’s cricket knowledge is very good. ‘
The BCB director added, “Like our T20 team, you can’t blame Mahmudullah. There is an X-factor somewhere in Shakib, if he gambles, he succeeds in it. ‘
