CRICDOT DESK :BPL franchise Chittagong Challengers has suddenly taken a mysterious decision. The team changed captain overnight.

Spin all-rounder Mehdi Hasan Miraj was removed from the captaincy and another all-rounder Naeem Islam was given the responsibility.

Naeem replaces Miraj in the match against Sylhet Sunrisers at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on Saturday.

Miraj is angry at this sudden decision. Because under his leadership the team was on the winning trend. With three wins in five matches, Chittagong is now at the top of the points list in BPL. But why was he removed? It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

Just before the start of the game on Friday at around 12 noon, the team manager Fahim Muntasir called Miraj and said that he could not be the captain of the decision of the higher authorities of the team.

Miraj can leave the team today and come back to Dhaka quite embarrassed. A source close to him said so.

In this regard, the chief executive officer of the Chittagong team Syed Yasir Alam said that since Miraj is an important cricketer of the team, coach Paul Nixon has asked to change the captain to reduce the pressure on him. This is Nixon’s decision.

Meanwhile, Nixon suddenly returned to the country to take charge of the county team Leicestershire. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
