Shakib Al Hasan is not supposed to play the series due to finger injury. And now he is a candidate for the upcoming parliamentary elections. He will participate in the election as a candidate of Awami League from Magura-1 Constituency. All the preoccupations of the Bangladesh captain are now around the election.

However, Shakib is not psychologically far away from the team for the two-Test series starting tomorrow against New Zealand. Yesterday, the new Test captain of the Bangladesh team called Nazmul Hossain and congratulated him and wished the Bangladesh team well.

In the pre-series press conference at the Sylhet International Stadium today, Nazmul, the captain of the series, said in response to a question, "We will certainly miss Shakib Bhai." I think every player will miss it. He called last night about the team, congratulated. He wished all the players of the team, may they do well. He said, we should do whatever we can.  Read More cricket news update

In the absence of Shakib, Nazmul will lead the Test team for the first time in this series. However, he has captained three matches in ODIs before. A match against New Zealand at home before the World Cup, followed by two matches in the just-concluded India World Cup after Shakib was ruled out of the tournament with an injury.
Tamim Iqbal has given up the ODI captaincy before the World Cup. Shakib also said that he will not be captain after the World Cup. However, it is not yet certain whether the decision applies to all versions. But in such a situation, the thought of fixing the future captain is naturally peeping in BCB.

The names of Nazmul and Mehdi Hasan Miraj were the most talked about as possible future captains. Among the two, Nazmul got the responsibility in this series. It is known that he will be the captain of the team for the upcoming New Zealand tour to be announced today. It is certain that Shakib and Tamim will not play in this series of three ODIs and three T20Is.

Due to the situation, Nazmul has to captain the series for the time being. But after knowing the future thoughts of Shakib and Tamim, maybe BCB will want to make him the captain for a long time. Nazmul also said again today that he is ready to take the responsibility. Whoever will be the captain, it will be good for him to be the captain for a long time, it will be convenient.

After 2010, Nazmul became the fastest Test captain of Bangladesh. He got this responsibility within five years of his Test debut. Earlier, Mushfiqur Rahim and Muminul Haque got the Test captaincy six years after their Test debut.

BCB will know Shakib's future plans regarding career and captaincy only after the election. However, BCB was supposed to know Tamim's plan yesterday. But even though he was scheduled to sit with BCB President Nazmul Hasan last night, that meeting did not take place. It could be today.
