Bangladesh's test and T20I captain Shakib Al Hasan said he was "not mentally ready" or not ready to continue to lead the team in any form, or he would focus more on his game. cause. He wants to give younger players more responsibility over the next four years, but he understands that the team needs to lead a difficult step.
"I'm not mentally ready to lead the test and the T20," Shaqib said every day Pro Tom Aloe. "But I understand that the team is in poor condition and I have to go back to the team. Otherwise I'm not interested in leading in any form. If I'm not a captain, I can focus on myself. I will help the team.
"You want to be responsible for the young. We [Mushfiqur Rahim and he, in the main] I got the track at a very young age [the next bunch] Now you are 26-27 years old. If you do not give them responsibility, you will not know what they can do. "The World Test Championship and the T20 World Cup will be ahead, so we need to plan for the next four years."

The current claim is Shakib's second with full-time capacity under test and T20I. He became the captain of the T20I when Mashrafe Mortaza retired from the April 2017 format, and then gained the Test captain after looting Mushfiqur Rahim in December of that year.
The indifferent expression of Shaqib, the first role of 13 years of international career, comes from his early experience as a captain of Bangladesh. He became a warrant in 2011 after representing injured Masraf from mid-2009, but eight months later he lost his job in the aftermath of a stupid World Cup campaign. However, he was the most consistent performer on the team and was the third-highest hitter in the tournament, enjoying the dream run at the World Cup earlier this year. After Mashrafe retired, his consistency, not to mention his seniority, also made him fit the ODI claim.
Shakib is basically not so debilitating, as the claims are expected to do it consistently. He cited Mashrafe's example at this year's World Cup.
"I had faith that we could go further in this World Cup, and it would have been possible if we made everyone's contributions," Shakib said. "If a player doesn't play, he's going to think more about himself than the team, causing problems. byeIs the case.
"It was a big problem for the captain and the team not to play the role of captain. The captain had to perform but we were lagging in that respect. It was not impossible. [to reach the semi-finals]; We had a good start to the World Cup but we couldn't stop it. "
The next challenge for Bangladesh and Shakib is the one-time test of Chattogram for Afghanistan from September 5, and the T20I Tri-series for Afghanistan and Zimbabwe.
