Sports Reporter :
President of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Nazmul Hasan Papon said to the journalists on Tuesday, " There is no chance to step down Mashrafe Bin Mortaza from captaincy of Bangladesh National Cricket (ODI) team."
Hasan said, "BCB should not drop Mashrafe Bin Mortaza from ODI squad. Mashrafe will play for national squad in the ICC World Cup Cricket 2019. There is no alternative player instead of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza."
BCB boss highly praised Mashrafe Bin Mortaza.
BCB supreme said, " Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is the most successful captain of Bangladesh Cricket team. He has an extra-ordinary capacity to lead the team. As a cricketer he is also very capable. As a pacer he is a good performer. So, there is no second thought to step down him."
Papon said, " We have to think about the alternatives of all players. We have to think about the alternates of Mashrsafe Bin Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim. But we don't think to step down Mashrafe from his post. I talk to Mashrafe and everything is okay."
