Dhaka: Bangladesh cricket authorities on Tuesday sacked wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim as one-day international captain and replaced him with injury-prone paceman Mashrafe Mortaza.
Mushfiqur, however, will continue to lead the Test side, Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hassan announced after a BCB directors' meeting.
"Mushfiq (Rahim) is our best batsman at the moment. At the same time he also needs to lead the team and do the wicketkeeping job. This is a tremendous pressure for him," Nazmul told reporters.
