As BCB releases its Asia Cup roster

The right-hander, who last competed for Bangladesh in September 2019, has returned to the national team after a three-year absence.

Following a lengthy discussion with Shakib on Saturday at president Nazmul Hasan’s home, the BCB made their decision.

Nazmul and other powerful board members first spoke about Shakib’s most recent controversy—the cricketer’s affiliation with a bookmaker—during the meeting.

Shakib expressed regret for his engagement with Betwinner News, a division of the betting and gaming website Betwinner dot com, in a statement to the media after the meeting, according to Jalal Younus, the head of the BCB Cricket Operations Committee.In this artical you can know about Shakib is selected captain.

Jalal said that Shakib had pledged to go cautiously and had assumed temporary leadership of the T20I team.

“Shakib will serve as the captain of the Bangladesh T20I team for the T20 World Cup, Tri-Nation series in New Zealand, and the Asia Cup. On this, the board had already decided. We talked about it [on Saturday] and gave him the charge. After the T20 World Cup, we will reconsider the T20I captaincy, stated Jalal.

Jalal stated, “We also had debate on it. Shakib’s issue with the board over backing a concern of a betting business. Shakib recognized his error. He claimed that after being informed, he abandoned the sponsorship since he had mistakenly believed it to be a news source.

Opening batsman Munim Shahriar, middle-order batsman Nazmul Hossain Shanto, and seamer Shariful Islam from the most recent T20I team that participated in the tour of Zimbabwe have been left out of the Bangladesh squad for the Asia Cup T20, which will take place in the United Arab Emirates later this month.

Mushfiqur Rahim, a batsman who doubles as a wicketkeeper, Sabbir, and all-arounder Saifuddin have all rejoined the team, and fast bowler Ebadat Hossain received his first call-up for the competition.
