Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Sunday announced Tamim Iqbal as the new ODI captain of Bangladesh cricket team.
"Tamim has been selected as the new ODI captain. He’ll be leading Bangladesh in the coming days," BCB president Nazmul Hassan told the media at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium after a meeting of the board.
Tamim replaced Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, who stepped down as Bangladesh's ODI captain in the 3rd and last ODI match against Zimbabwe in the series. Mashrafe led the Tigers since 2014, taking over from Mushfiqur Rahim.
Tamim, the left-handed opener, led the Tigers earlier. But this is his first appointment as the full-time captain. He will be leading the Tigers as per the latest development.
