Miraz stays following dramatic chaos, but no more captaincy

The Bangladeshi all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who is currently playing Bangabandhu BPL for Chattogram Challengers in Chattogram, decided to come back to Dhaka as he was sacked from his captaincy just three hours before their match. 

The drama started when he decided not to play for the Challengers and broke the bio-bubble security to catch his flight for Dhaka. But the team officials and owner convinced him to stay but he will not do the captaincy. 

The BCB decided to investigate the unwanted situation that happened on Saturday. According to Sport News BD staff as the board has seen this drama before back in 2013 when Mashrafee was sacked from captaincy and Ashraful got himself involved in fixing. So, it’s assuming they have taken the matter seriously.

KM Rifatuzzaman, the owner of the franchise, said, “There was some communication gap between us. That is the cause of misunderstanding.”

Miraz said in a press conference regarding the issues, “They understood the matter that they should have informed me before taking away the captaincy.”

He was even asked whether he will continue the captaincy. In reply, he said, “I’ll play as a player but won’t continue captaincy even if the team offers me the captaincy right now.”

He expects to play good cricket and hopes the team will perform well. He understands the team expects good performances from him.

On the other hand, the BPL governing council gave a warning to both the parties and said anyone found guilty will be punished, the chairman, Sheikh Sohel has informed the media today. 

The chairman also said both the management of Chattogram Challengers and Miraz are at fault. Miraz, being such a good player and big name in the national team should have waited more, he also added.
