    Good move. Bashar needs to go and Ashraful needs to grow up.

    I can't see this move working very well, especially with how immature Ashraful is with his batting. Bashar was one of the best Test batsman (if not the best) that Bangladesh have had, and it's a shame to see him go like this. I doubt he'll be selected as a specialist bat, especially in the ODI's.

    Yeah but don't see many other options. It wouldn't have been a good idea to have separate captains.

    Deal with it and move on to Mortaza, Nafees, Rahim, etc. This team can only go so far with Bashar leading the way - may as well take a shot considering the potential reward.

    Why not go straight to Mortaza? Seems an infinately better candidate to me, even though he's a bowler.

    Ashraful was the VC though; Mortaza will be the stabilizing factor for him I guess.

    Daniel Vettori has captained the Black Caps a couple of times.

    Back up to Stephen Fleming. Generally it is because captains who are bowlers tend to underbowl or overbowl themselves, rather than a batsman who is captaining the side from a pretty good neutral position.

    It doesn't matter, he has done a pretty damn good job for Bangladesh. Averaging 35 or something I think, which is no mean feat in a team that gets continually beaten.

    Yeah, he's got the highest average of all Bangladeshi batsmen to have played over 20 innings. Along with Mortaza and maybe Rafique you'd say he's one of the only players in the team who'd have a shot in other countries.
