The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has named Shakib Al Hasan as the new ODI captain for the National Team. BCB President Nazmul Hassan, MP announced the appointment of the ace allrounder in Dhaka today.  Mr Hassan said: “Shakib was the obvious choice to captain Bangladesh when the position fell vacant. I am very confident that his exemplary performance, experience, and leadership qualities will galvanise the team as we head into two massive events like the Asia Cup and the World Cup.”

The 36-year-old Shakib makes a return as the ODI captain having previously led Bangladesh in 52 ODIs between 2009 and 2017. He replaces Tamim Iqbal who had stepped down from the role earlier this month.
