Bangladesh cricket

Shakib or Mortaza?

Nitin Sundar

Shakib Al Hasan's stellar leadership against New Zealand has given the Bangladesh selectors an interesting dilemma when Mashrafe Mortaza returns. Bishwajit Roy of the Daily Star writes it is important for the board to make the right decision ahead of the World Cup.

It is now very hard for Mashrafe to concentrate on the additional responsibility of captaincy when he is consistently tormented by injuries. It would be great to see Mashrafe bowling again with full rhythm and everyone in the country prays for his good fortune. But the growing belief is that he needs first to concentrate on prolonging his career before he is entrusted with the additional burden of captaincy.
