Shakib Al Hasan has not informed the cricket board about quitting Test cricket. According to the last word, he has promised to play for the country in three formats. This was stated by BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon in Samay Sangbad.
Not only the national team, but also the women’s, HP and age-based teams are in the process of appointing foreign coaches, he said. Although the youth team did not meet the expectations in the Asia Cup, the head of the board is optimistic about the World Cup.
The family lives in the United States. And Shakib is playing for the national team like Jayabar. Almost all the series for Corona are being held in Biobubble. For which the length in each series is getting bigger than before.
After Shakib’s return from ban, Bangladesh team played 6 Tests. The all-rounder was in only three of them. Missed two matches due to injury.
In a recent interview, Shakib said that playing three formats for the national team is becoming more difficult day by day. He also made it clear that maybe he will give up Test cricket. However, the country’s best cricketers have not yet informed the cricket board about this. However, Shakib will play in all three formats for the country wanted by the board.
“I haven’t talked to Shakib about leaving Test cricket,” Papon said. However, there is an uncertainty about him. Because when he plays and when he doesn’t play, there is always uncertainty about it. And it is as bad for the team as it is for his own career.
“As far as I know, he will play in all formats,” he said. Undoubtedly he is our best player. But what is the benefit of being the best player, if you can’t always play for the country.
Jamie Siddons will join the national team next month as a batting consultant. After more than 10 years, this Australian is getting involved in Bangladesh cricket again. The board has plans to further enrich the coaching panel. BCB is also looking for a coach outside the national team.
“We have a consistent effort to coach,” Papon said. We are looking for a good coach.
Rakibul and Tamim are now in the Caribbean to play in the Under-19 World Cup. The team went to the World Cup mission keeping the desire to become the champion of Asia elusive. However, the board is not unhappy with their performance.
