No Bangladesh captain named for BCB Cup

ESPNcricinfo staff

Bangladesh have announced three squads to represent the national team, Bangladesh A and the BCB academy side in the BCB Cup 2011-12, and they have not named a captain for the national team. Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, who were removed from their positions as captain and vice-captain respectively following the ODI series loss in Zimbabwe, are both part of the national squad for the local tournament, which will be held from September 12-21, as is Mushfiqur Rahim, who is tipped to replace Shakib.

All the players named in the national side were part of the squad that toured Zimbabwe, with the exception of Alok Kapali, who was recalled to the ODI team for the home one-dayers against Australia in April after three years out of the national side. Junaid Siddique, Mahmudullah and Robiul Islam, who all went to Zimbabwe, are in the A side, which also includes Naeem Islam and Raqibul Hasan, who were part of Bangladesh's World Cup squad. Elias Sunny, Farhad Reza and Nadif Chowdhury, who all impressed on Bangladesh A's tour of South Africa in April will get the opportunity to play against national team members.

The three teams play each other twice in the tournament, before the top teams play the final. All the games will be at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Bangladesh: Imrul Kayes, Tamim Iqbal, Shahriar Nafees, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Shuvagoto Hom, Alok Kapali, Nasir Hossain, Abdur Razzak, Mohammad Ashraful, Shafiul Islam, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Nazmul Hossain, Rubel Hossain

Bangladesh A: Junaid Siddique, Jahurul Islam, Nadif Chowdhury, Raqibul Hassan, Mahmudullah, Naeem Islam, Saghir Hossain, Elias Sunny, Shahadat Hossain, Farhad Reza, Saqlain Sajib, Shamsur Rahman, Robiul Islam, Syed Rasel

    nice........Will this tournament continue for upcoming years? This type of tournament will give an opportunity to young players to challenge national team players with their performance. It'll obviously increase competitiveness for National side places!

    I got to congratulate this first for BCB step up for the betterment of our cricket. And gradually, the arrangements should be done in a way to open space for these teams to play 3/4 days games each other on different kinds of wickets. Definatly, that will bring up better competition and better performances as a result and the job of the selectors will be much easier.

    Why is Ashraful in the main team , how long will this guy play ---

    This BCB Cup is a very good idea and which will give a good exposure of Bangladeshi individual talents that are available to the coach.Hopefully this will create more competitiveness and hunger while getting rid of complacency which is rife in the A team.Then discipline and professionalism must be installed in these players before learning process can begin towards international level.Domestic cricket needs to improve by better competitiveness,better wickets,better domestic coaches and better standard of talent spotting without any form of prejudice.The BCB should announce that they are looking for more talented fast bowlers and will spare no expense to find them.Late night parties and social activities surrounding major players must be restricted.Sponsorship deals with players and their agents should also be looked at.

    These teams, consisting of the best players, should be playing five dayers... and on a true sporting wicket...

    I guess Mashrafe is still injured, to not be in any of these sides, but where is Saleh? He seems to be in decent form and has played some useful innings at International level.
