The previous captain who wasn’t included on the T20 World Cup roster was “Equated With MS Dhoni,” according to the Bangladesh T20 coach.
Mahmudullah was compared to former India captain MS Dhoni by Bangladesh T20 consultant Sridharan Sriram for the T20 World Cup 2022.
After losing in the Asia Cup group stage, the administration of the Bangladesh cricket team made significant adjustments when choosing their team for the T20 World Cup. It dismissed previous captain Mahmudullah Riyad and called up batter Najmul Hossain in order to be ready for the important competition that will take place in Australia later this month. The Asia Cup campaign, in which Bangladesh was eliminated in the group stage after defeats to eventual champions Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, brought to light the team’s 20-over troubles.
Mahmudullah’s participation was questioned because, in 2022, he only amassed 151 runs in eight games.
The 36-year-old isn’t the team’s only option, says former Indian cricketer Sridharan Sriram, who was appointed last month as the T20 consultant for the group.
It is never an easy chat because he is Bangladesh’s most-capped T20 player, according to Sriram, who was quoted by ESPNcricinfo. He thus has my utmost respect. I have to pose as the villain in order to have the talk. So I thought the conversation went nicely.
“I believe that our cricket team needs a succession plan. I’ve always compared Mahmudullah and MS Dhoni since they both play similar roles for the team. He batted at No. 6, much like Dhoni has done for India. He has finished video gaming. Dhoni cannot go on forever, right?
You need to have a plan for your successor (next). I think this was the perfect opportunity to pick someone to fill Mahmudullah’s massive shoes. You need someone. Until we begin acting out players in that capacity, we won’t be able to locate them.
Najmul is back after missing out on the Asia Cup as Liton Das, Nurul Hasan, and Yasir Ali recovered from injury. Mushfiqur Rahim, a talented player who announced his retirement earlier this month, will also not represent Bangladesh. The T20 World Cup will start in Australia on October 16. Group 2 will include Bangladesh, two Super 12 qualifiers, South Africa, India, Pakistan, and Pakistan.
Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Liton Das, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Hasan Mahmud, Nasum Ahmed, Najmul Hossain.
