Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been appointed Bangladesh Test captain days after Mominul Haque left the post vacant. Bangladesh named the all-rounder for the third-time test captain Thursday after Mominul Haque quit following a bad run of form.

A physically out-of-shape Mominul Haque has quit his post as the captain of Bangladesh following their defeat to Sri Lanka in a home series. It is known that following the second Test against Sri Lanka at Mirpur last week, Mominul Haque had a meeting with the BCB chairman, in which he expressed his wish to resign as the captain in order to improve himself as a batsman. Such an unprecedented development has now become the norm in Bangladesh cricket, with Test captain Mominul Haque stating yesterday that he has decided to resign as skipper in order to focus on his batsmanship.

Test skipper Mominul Haque has had to cope with the key absences of usual stars like Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, trying to play the role of a captain during his spell of Test captaincy. Bangladesh Test skipper Mominul Haque has been named as the Test captain for the tour to West Indies by Bangladesh Cricket Board; however, Shakib Al Hasan has been given the post again. Given the present circumstances, Shakib Al Hasan seems like the perfect alternative to Bangladesh Test captain.

BCB chairman Nazmul Hasan says it is hard to say for how long Shakib Al Hasan, a stellar all-rounder, will continue as the Bangladesh captain. The first choice for the BCB is said to be Shakib Al Hassan, but that depends on Shakib Al Hassan’s commitment and desire to captain Bangladesh. All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is set to start his third spell as the skipper when Bangladesh travels to West Indies for a 2 Test series later this month. In the last two-and-a-half years, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has played just 6 Test matches for Bangladesh, which has cast clouds of uncertainty on his tenure in the new role.

Overall, the Bangladesh side has won just three Test matches under Shakib Al Hasans captaincy, but they will hope to have a better showing this time. Overall, the Bangladesh team have won only three Test matches under his captaincy, but they will be hoping for a better show this time around. Of Zimbabwes touring sides, only the Zimbabwean captain has played more than nine Tests; Bangladesh are a more experienced team. The Bangladesh Cricket Board said Shakib would be leading the Bangladesh side for the two Test series against the West Indies later this month, while wicketkeeper-batsman Litton Das was named as his assistant.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board has also named batsman Liton Das as their vice-captain before the two-Test series in West Indies later this month. Just days ahead of the tour, Bangladeshs Test and T20I regular captain Shakib Al Hasan was banned by the ICC for 2 years after accepting three charges under the ICCs anti-corruption code. In January 2019, Mominul Haque was appointed as captain of the Bangladesh Test team following the suspension of Shakib Al Hasan by the ICC. BCB chairman Nazmul Hassan Papon told media ahead of the meeting that he did not want the captaincy of Test cricket in Bangladesh to go.
