What requirements does he suppose he fulfills as a test captain that he's doesn't do as one-day captain?

Equally inept as both.

Well.. he doesn't really have any other choice at this point. He had already thought about retiring from ODI after the WC.. but delayed his decision just perhaps to giv it a last shot. However... it really backfired and he was simply unable to take the pressure of criticism. That caused his lousy Test performance in the end.

He will probably be advised by the selectors again to step down from ODIs... as he was before. In the coming SL tour, BD will be playing 3 Test matches first... before the ODI series. And if Bashar is still in poor form with bat... we might ultimately see an ODI team without Habibul Bashar.

Hanging around the team with a pathetic form like this can only end the career of any good player with a very ugly impression in the end. Its probably better if he volunterily stays away from ODI for atleast a while.

I was hoping the events of the last few days would prompt a more comprehensive U-turn and see him hand over the Test captaincy as well.

I'm sure he's known for a while he's not up to scratch when it comes to one-dayers. He's only handed it over now because the pressure from the fans and media have got to him.

I was hoping with passions running high after this performance, he'd make a spur of the moment decision without time to reflect.

Lofty expectations though, you're not wrong.

Actually, good news come only once in a while. In that case, I would go with McInnes as the new coach to be the good news, than Bashar giving up captaincy.

You see, if McInnes comes in, he'll fix the very first thing that's required in our team. Which is: making the same basic mistakes over and over and over again. At this level of cricket, this should've been gone. But now I see that it's not yet gone from our team. And only a strict coach, who will punish you for every mistake you make, can control this problem.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but isn't that much more important than Bashar stepping down? You know, if McInnes comes, there'll be a clean sweep of the whole team...and Bashar will be the first one to get swept away, along with JO and Pilot.

I think we agreed on this yesterday when we met :)

Bunch of upcomming players are knocking the door. So, Bashar not only captain, he should retire as a player from both version of cricket at once. After his horrible performances in the recent series he should be on sideline!!!! If he plays in ODI, he will
slowdown the runrate, will force somebody to RUNOUT!!! Along with Bashar , Nafees,
Javed Omar, Pilot, selectors should be gone. Then TIGERS will prosper.

I am glad that Bashar is out from the ODI team. For the past couple of months he has tormented fans like me by his performance, both as a player and most of all as a captain. I never wanted to say any bad thing about Bashar, let alone call him names like Ha Ba. But he forced me to do it (with his stupidity that I never believed I would see from him)....I am happy and at peace with my mind that he is gone from the ODI team and I am glad that I won't have to call him names again (hopefully). But I do believe he is still needed in the test side. His performances were shambolic in the last two tests but he was under enormous pressure (which he brought onto himself) and that took a heavy toll. Free from the pressure of the ODI slot, I hope he would be "chonmone" enough to concentrate on his role as the premier test batsman of the country. I want to see a couple more hundreds from him, preferably a hundred in the next test series against Srilanka. I pray and hope he wouldn't turn on a performance like his ODI records recently to prove me worng. Amen.

If McInnes really does come in, Pilot's career is over.

You can pretty much pencil in Mushfiq's name for the Sri Lanka series right now.

CricInfo writes about the retirement.

Bashar gives up one-day captaincy

Habibul Bashar, the Bangladesh captain, has announced that he will step down as skipper of the one-day team with immediate effect. Speaking to the media after Bangladesh slumped to an innings defeat to India, Bashar said that he would still be available for selection as a player, but would not continue to lead the team.

Even though Mohammad Ashraful and Mashrafe Mortaza took some of the gloom off with defiant and flamboyant half-centuries, the fact remained that Bangladesh still needed to go a long way before they could start competing with the big teams in the Test arena. The future of their captain and coach is unsure in these times. The duo, on their part, cleared their stands, though.

Habibul Bashar, awfully out of sorts with the bat, has time and again received calls to step down. He agreed that the pressure has got to him, thought a lot about his future and quit as one-day captain. Bashar said that he still believed he could contribute to the team as a batsman.

Despite heavy criticism, there are certain people in Bangladesh cricket who feel that the extremely young Bangladeshi team still need his experience. His bat may not have produced runs in the recent past, but his contributions to Bangladesh cricket have been immense. One of those supporters is the outgoing coach, Dav Whatmore.

"No batsman means to not score runs; Habibul doesn't either," Whatmore said. "Habibul has been Bangladesh's best player in Test history."

Whatmore himself is on the way out. He now goes home to Australia, reunites with his family, and awaits the Indian board's decision whether to appoint him coach or not. "My contract [with Bangladesh] ends on June 1. Then I need to recharge my batteries," he said. "There may be another challenge not far away. That will remain the decision of the employer."

It has in some ways been a pity that instead of celebrating his last few days with the Bangladesh team, who achieved a lot during his tenure, the journalists have been concentrated more on his future. But Whatmore will take away fond memories. "Lots of interesting things happened on the way," Whatmore said, "Beating some of the big teams was special. Progressing in the World Cup was a big effort."

"You wish you could do better in the matter of the individuals becoming better players. One or two players who were dropped, I thought, could have done better," said, when asked if he had any regrets. "I would have loved Ashraful to develop more in the four years. His best cricket is surely yet to come. And his consistency will improve as he gets older, but [he has not come along] quite the way I would have loved him to have."

All that's gone now, and there's nothing either Whatmore or Bashar can do about it. What they can do is wait on the verdict on their professional futures, which coincidentally, for both of them comes on June 4.

He could have averted all of this by retiring at the right time.

But yes, he stayed on one tour too many and we shouldn't dwell on it.

I think once the anger subsides, we'll all take a far more reasonable stance.

He needs to hand over the test captaincy though.

Here's Bashar's post match briefing from TC.

Whether it was the toughest Test

Probably the toughest Test. I can remember another Test match against Sri Lanka. But if you think about the condition and the way we played here, then it’s clearly the toughest Test match.

Whether Bangladesh planned to play Twenty-20 cricket today

Definitely not. We wanted to play good Test cricket but things did not go our way.

On Dav Whatmore’s tenure

We have been developing as a complete team in Dav Whatmore’s four years tenure. We did struggle at the beginning but then started to push other teams in Test. But this 13 months gap costs us a lot. We had to restart from the beginning. We did well in the first Test but completely thrashed in the second. But these things might happen in cricket. Our next series is against Sri Lanka. Hopefully we can make a comeback there.

On his decision to field first

These things do happen. Sometimes you take a decision which does not work for you. That’s the way cricket goes on. But I got the support from our boys. We are fantastic as a team. Everyone came to me and told that, “You did the right thing.” The decisions will not always go on your way. I am not the first captain whose decision proved wrong.

On the wicket

The wicket has changed a little. There was something for the pacers in the first day morning. Now it broke up in one or two places but still remained a very good batting track. The wicket is not to blame for our poor show with the bat. We could not bat well, that is the only reason. Our decisions in shot selections were not correct all the time.

On his captaincy

I told the board that I do not want to be the captain of the ODI side anymore. I spoke to one of the board official today. I will be available for selection though. It’s now up to the board whether they will keep me as a captain in the Tests. But you know, to me playing for the country is the most important thing; captaincy is not the last thing for me.

On the reason to leave ODI captaincy

I do not want to be in the ODI side only because of captaincy. That’s why I leave that post. If I can prove myself, then I will be in the team. I want to claim my place as a performer, not as a captain. I felt that this is the appropriate time to hand over the captaincy to a new one.

Equally inept as both.

steps down after all of these...he was given opportunity to leave with dignity but he refused. He used latest ODI series and also the test series for his own carrier not for the team. He failed and now he is saying he will quit.

He should now be dropped from ODI, can have test inclusion as a player but after some domestic performances.

This line is encouraging. It suggests that his captaincy is actually something that's still up in the air.

I'd just assumed he'd stay on as Test captain.

Hopefully media pressure and some intense lobbying from the new coach (McInnes?) will result in the correct decision being made.

He can not be given CAPTAINCY in test at all!! He misused his captaincypower by batting
in #3 position. Normally best batsman plays in that position to build up an innings. Being
the worst batsman of the side he came in # 3 and destroyed the batting lineup in both innings!!! So, he can't be captain at any cost. Now I want to see his buddy CHAMCHA

yeah right, i was reading it today.

sad but true, he must take some rest before he gets himself fit again. I think he can do more as a batsman rather than captain.

we need a captain who plays aggressive cricket and don't get scared to take risks.
