No Bangladesh captain named for BCB Cup
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.
