Minto Poddar: Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been named Test captain for the third time.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan Papon made the announcement at a press conference after a concerned meeting yesterday afternoon.
Liton Kumar Das has also been made the Test vice-captain.
The world’s best all-rounder was banned in October of 2019 for hiding a fixing proposal. At that time, BCB hastily announced Mominul Haque as the Test captain.
That responsibility has come on Shakib’s shoulders again as Mominul Haque stepped down from his Test captaincy on Tuesday to focus on his batting, after a poor run of form so far this year.
Bangladesh team will leave for West Indies on June 5 where they will play two Test matches, three Twenty20 matches and three one-day matches.
