Bangladesh have appointed Mushfiqur Rahim as national captain through to the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
Mushfiqur, who recently led the Tigers to a 3-0 one-day series win at home to New Zealand after the Tests with the Black Caps were drawn 0-0, resigned the captaincy in May only to say he had made a mistake and be reappointed until the end of this year. A day after his reappointment he criticised the Bangladesh Cricket Board for its short-term decision.
Today the wicketkeeper-batsman said: "I feel honoured by the faith the board has shown in my ability to lead the Bangladesh team. This is also a fantastic opportunity for me to plan for the future with Shane (Bangladesh coach Shane Jurgensen), the players and the rest of the management.
"We have started to develop a better degree of consistency in recent times and I will try my heart and soul to maintain that positive vibe.”
