Currently that Mashrafe has actually revealed his retirement from T20Is, Hassan swiftly named his option as successor, though Shakib has to be supported by the board of supervisors.
” Shakib is the most likely prospect to take the T20 captaincy,” Hassan claimed. “We always had five candidates. Given that Mashrafe and Mushfiqur are already captains, we only had Tamim, Mahmudullah as well as Shakib as the remaining ones. Shakib’s attitude as well as efficiency shows that he has developed, as well as is a complete grown-up. He leads the other candidates.”

” He will play as long as he is in shape. There’s no chance for him to be from the team. It is a various problem if the captain or instructor assumes a person can play in his place.”

” On the eve of the very first T20, I talked with Tamim, Shakib, Mushfiqur and also Mashrafe. I told them that nobody could drop you offered just how much you have actually contributed to the team. A minimum of until I am around. You have to make your very own leave plan. If you play badly for a game or 2, or even for a year, you will not be gone down. Other than disciplinary problems, you won’t be dropped for efficiency.
” Who would certainly drop Shakib? Tamim has actually been among our finest batsmen. Mushfiqur is our batting column. He resembles our Rahul Dravid. Who would certainly drop them? No doubt concerning it. Mashrafe is beyond performance. He doesn’t need to bat or bowl well. He has a great deal of something various. It is difficult to find one more Mashrafe. His management quality, and also his love for team and the nation is an unusual quality. I am not stating others do not have it yet his is of a various level.”
