Bangladesh remove Shakib, Iqbal from captaincies
Dhaka (Bangladesh): The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Monday relieved skipper Shakib Al Hasan and vice captain Tamim Iqbal of their leadership roles for their poor performance in last month`s tour of Zimbabwe.
The board`s media committee chairman Jalal Yunus told reporters that they took the decision after receiving a performance review report.
Yunus said the board had "no option" but to take a tough decision.
In August, Zimbabwe won the five-match one-day international series against Bangladesh 3-2 after it conceded a humiliating 130-run defeat in the only Test in Harare.
Zimbabwe returned to the longer version of the game after five years, making a strong comeback through the game against Bangladesh.
Shakib or Iqbal could not be reached immediately for comment, and it was not clear who would replace them.
