I think it's harsh on Mushy. He deserved a longer run before such drastic measures. The nominees are interesting to say the least. I wouldn't dismiss Tamim as a candidate. I think he has it in him to become a good captain but only if he brings a little more maturity to the way he carries himself off the field. Would the others in the team be motivated to give their all in training if the captain himself has a half-assed approach to it? But I think Tamim, with his background, has a good cricketing brain and he also has a good working relationship with the rest of the seniors. I am a little more apprehensive about throwing leadership back on Shakib's already over-filled plate and am worried that it may become an impediment to his growth as a world-class cricketer. One thing that's indisputable is that Riyad must face the axe. I have defended him in the past but it has become clear that he isn't cut out for this level let alone being VC.
