Mortaza appointed captain for Zimbabwe series


mortuzaMashrafe Mortaza has been reinstated as captain for Bangladesh’s ODI series against Zimbabwe at home, scheduled for October this year. Shakib Al Hasan, who led Bangladesh to their maiden overseas Test series win in the absence of an injured Mortaza, will be his deputy.

Shakib had been appointed as stand-in captain in the absence of Mortaza, who had sustained a knee injury, and he led by example, scoring a match-winning 96 against West Indies at St George’s to seal Bangladesh’s first overseas Test series win. He followed that up with a 3-0 whitewash in the subsequent ODI series and a 4-1 defeat of Zimbabwe.

Jamie Siddons, who oversaw the recent run of successes as coach, has had his tenure extended in principle until the 2011 World Cup in the subcontinent. A Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) release stated that a three-member committee will be formed to negotiate the terms and conditions of the new contract.
