there is only one possible replacement and that's shakib, had nasir not had this big slump he would have been an option but well he did so he's not.

Yes.. not because of his captaincy, but because of nepotism.

I think Mominul could be a good prospect for tests and ODI and Anamul for T20, if they have the "captaincy brain." In any case, they cannot be worse than now.

It is the hard fact that WE DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER OPTION THAN MUSHFIQUR RAHMAN.

As far as the team is concerned: THE ENTIRE BATTING LINE UP IS SITTING ON THEE PEOPLE - Mr Anamul Haque, Mr Sakib Al Hasan and Mr Mushfiqur Rahman. THE ENTIRE BOWLING LINE UP IS SURVIVING ON ONE DAMN PERSON - Mr Shakib Al Hasan.
I don't think we have anyone named Mushfiqur Rahman in the team. Are you talking about Mushfiqur Rahim? He has been an abject failure as a captain. Anyone in the team would be better at this time.

Mushy's captaincy got worse over the time as he started losing trust from his bowlers. No matter who he bowled for the last couple series, failed him for the majority regardless of the situation. Yea, he made many mistakes as a captain, but still, he tried from inform regular bowlers to part timers. Nothing worked!
Bowling well and taking wickets involve a lot of things. Did you actually watch Bangladesh matches for last 3/4 months? Almost every time when the opponents were under pressure, he has let them settle down with defensive field placing and idiotic bowling rotation. He loves leaking singles.

How can you expect your bowlers to do well when you are not backing their efforts on the field as a captain? We don't have any Murali or Malinga to bowl for us. So you have to use your limited resources intelligently.

Did you watch the matches of Netherlands and Afghanistan? They didn't do well everyday. But whenever they could put pressure on the opponents batsman, they tried to do it with maximun intensity. This is where our greatest captain fails miserably.

Mushfiq should just step down like Hafeez:

http://www.dhakatribune.com/cricket/...-t20-captaincy

It will be really pathetic if he comes to the media and starts blaming the fan's expectation for the failure like Shakib.

Look at Chandimal opting out of playing the semis, selfless player and captain.

Wish our players are half as intelligent and accountable like the other professional team's good players/captains

I thought Mushy was one of the highly educated payers in our team, what happened to that?
Why can he not see thru all that and do the right thing?
He did not even come out and take responsibility like Hafeez did.

Mushy actually did step down once after Zim tour. BCB didn't endorse his resignation

If Mushy is the best captaincy hope of Bangladesh team then we fans might as well stop watching cricket.. since we will continue to loose matches due to poor field placement and bowling changes. I have not seen any change in his approach even after loosing so many close matches.

During the Zimbabwe series, I didn't follow the match on TV, just saw the cricinfo scorecard, so I was not aware of his captaincy blunders. I am sure if we watch the recording, we will see the exact same errors.

BCB needs to start looking for alternate options, especially when WC 2015 is coming up in little over a year.

Mash should be captain for T20 and ODI ( if he fits). Otherwise, Shakib and Anam Vice captain.

Mushy only for Test

it's either mushy or shakib, they're the only 2 who have secured places in any of the formats. mash is constantly injured, razzak isn't a captain and can't bowl anymore, mominul isn't established enough, nasir has fallen into a massive slump that keeps going on and on, tamim is in a huge slump like nasir potentially putting his position in jeopardy etc etc.

shakib might be a bit rash and do some immature things but mushy does it as well in the press room, shakib has much better tactical skills though and if we want to win matches that's an important thing.

The current performance is much worse and this shows that he was a better leader at that time. Now, he is not taking responsibility.

From an Indian fan-

"Being an Indian fan of Bangladesh Cricket, what I understand is the loss in T20 is mostly because poor captaincy and improper use of the resources. Can any one justify why a big hitter like Zia was not given chance to bat at no 4 when Musfiq continuously failed in this position ? Had he made quick 40 in 20 balls it could have made the situation different. Mahmudullah showed great form during the end and also deserved to be promoted to No-4 if not Zia !!! Similarly Mortaza could also have batted ahead of out of form Nassir as he is a good striker"

I'd like Shakib as the LOI captain and Mushy Test captain.

Martin Crowe on Mushfiq:

"There were some awful tactics. Stuart Broad was brilliantly dreadful, but no one more so than Mushfiqur Rahim, the home-town skipper, who simply couldn't cope with being the keeper and No. 4, the janitor and the chef. He had not one clue how to marshal a bunch of misfits, and who could blame him. His senior player, Shakib Al Hasan, insisted that they all rest at home for 24 months, and while unfair on the groundsmen, the nation breathed a sigh of relief that sense had been shared and might prevail. If only."

Crowe was being kind to the Great Skipper. Even if there is no ready replacement, he needs to be thrown out, before he throws someone under the bus.

Crowe was spot on about Mushfiq's tactics.

Baffling to say the least.

Tactics are supposed to be made by the coaches. Why Crowe did not mention anything about the dreadful coaching staff Mushy is surrounded with? Coaches are responsible for Gameplans, Field Setup Tactics, Bowling and Batting Orders and picking up a team that will effective based on opposition, pitch, conditions. Mushy is out there to implement his coaches's tactic, if he is wrong the coac should just come out of his air conditioned dressing room and shout at his captain. The coach dont even sit with his players in dugout, let alone tell them what to do.

Crowe needs to watch some NFL and college football and learn the art of coaching first before blaming a captain.

Crowe criticized the domestic infrastructure and the standard of coaching on espncricinfo match point...he was very bitter and said that he sees no light at the end of the tunnel...

We all know how Mash was so vulnerable at the end.Even Mushi is well aware of that, nevertheless he used M a sh against Pak match
(He conceded 17 runs in the earlier over) in the penultimate
over. This is absolutely brainless dumb stuff from Mushi.He also brought pace against HK when they were struggling against spin.

Not in cricket.

In cricket captains have far more responsibility in general, than in sports like football where it is more for motivational/inspirational reasons than tactical.

But yes for a team like Bangladesh which lacks thinkers adept with the art of war, it is preferable to have a coach who will play a greater role in team selection, field setup. They should be sending 12th man more often with suggestions etc.

But what can you expect from a coach who has hardly played first class cricket, and hasnt even led a state or club team prior to this job.
