“I have no goals, only aim is to do well in the world cup,” says Shakib al Hasan

Shakib al Hasan has been announced as the captain for the Bangladesh T20 side, where he will be leading his side in the Asia Cup and the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) after long discussions has decided that Shakib will be the skipper for the T20 format, it will be a difficult and proud moment for the skipper as he will be leading his side in the T20 World Cup.

Even the Bangladesh Cricket Board has appointed Sridharan Sriram as the technical director of the team to bring experienced people into the squad and give the youngsters proper guidance.

Shakib after being appointed as the skipper talked about the changes he can bring into the squad and told that the team’s fortune cannot be changed in a day or two if they believe so then they are living in a fool’s paradise.

The record under Coach Domingo is not good and that’s why the board has decided to introduce the split coaching system for the next edition of the Asia Cup.

Shakib first said that “I have no goals,” Shakib told reporters in Dhaka. “My only aim is that we can do well in the World Cup and these are the preparations for it. If someone thinks that I can change things within one or two days or that someone else will come to change them, then we are living in a fool’s kingdom. If you can think practically, our true development will be seen when the team does well in the World Cup in three months’ time.

“See, we first played this type of version (format) in 2006. Since then, we have not had good results, except in the Asia Cup final. We are far behind in this version from that point so we have no choice but to make a new start. When a baby starts walking [the first] steps are very difficult but gradually things become easier and I hope that we will also be able to start walking step by step like a baby and then move forward.”

Shakib concluded by saying “It’s difficult to say how much change will come in this Asia Cup because there is very little time. But as I said, we all have responsibilities here, from the coaching staff to the support staff, BCB, fans, and even the journalists also. If we all are able to work together, then it seems to me that a new journey can start.”

It will be crucial for the Bangladesh side to perform at the best level in the Asia Cup 2022 so that they can carry that moment towards the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
