Mominul Haque Quits As Bangladesh Test Captain


Dhaka: Mominul Haque has stepped down as Bangladesh test captain. The 30-year-old announced his decision during a meeting with Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chiefs at the home of board president Nazmul Hassan.

“I felt that captaining a side is tough when I am not scoring and the team is not winning. I think it is best to quit the captaincy,” Mominul told reporters after meeting Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan on Tuesday.

“I feel I should focus on my batting.”

“It wasn’t a hard decision. A captain has to contribute, otherwise it brings a lot of pressure. The board president told me to stay on but I don’t want to be the captain.”

The BCB is yet to name a replacement, but according to reports all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan could return to lead the side.
