Bangladesh Cricket Board has named Tamim Iqbal as the new skipper for One-day (ODI) format on Monday.
Tamim has been named as the new captain in place of Mashrafe Mortaza for the ODIs.
Tamim has previously led the team in the format last year against Sri Lanka in the third match series. The team lost all three as the captaincy didn’t work.
However, the new journey for Tamim will continue against Pakistan when Bangladesh plays one-off ODI after PSL 2020.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board in a conference today announced that,
“The board has unanimously selected Tamim Iqbal as our new ODI captain,” BCB President Nazmul Hassan revealed at a press conference.
“We thought of appointing a captain for a short duration and then giving the job to someone else next year. But we finally decided against a short-term appointment. We hope Tamim would serve for a long term,” he added.
