Mominul Haque, the Test captain of the Bangladesh National Cricket Team, has been suffering from run-drip for a long time. The question is whether the captaincy has become a burden on him due to the continuous failure. In this situation, rumors are circulating that Mominul will announce his resignation from the captaincy soon.

Speaking on the issue and clarifying the matter, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Cricket Operations Committee chairman Jalal Yunus told the media on Monday that “Mominul himself has to take the decision”.

“I think, yes. Captaincy is an added stress. When he can’t run as a captain, he may be hesitant to ask for advice. There may be an inferiority complex, as a result, the pressure is getting higher. The effect can be impacted. It is better to decide which one is better,” Jalal Yunus said. 

The BCB president will sit with Mominul to find out what his (Mominul) opinion is, and will talk openly to know Mominul’s thoughts. The BCB does not want to impose anything on Mominul at the moment. The next decision will be based on what Mominul wants.

Jalal Yunus further said, “Not only us, but also the president will sit with Mominul. He met him, talked to him. Maybe there’s more to talk about.”

The captaincy of the Test came to Mominul suddenly. Muminul was not ready to accept. Shakib Al Hasan’s ban suddenly fell on his shoulders. It started with a two-Test series against strong India. In both the Tests, the Tigers lost by a huge margin.

After taking the lead, batsman Mominul’s edge seems to be slowly decreasing. His average of over 40 is now below 35. The failure to pull the bat has led to repeated talk of leadership. Would Mominul himself like to be released from the leadership?
