DHAKA: Left-handed batter Mominul Haque has stepped down as Bangladesh's Test captain, following the team's series defeat at home against Sri Lanka. Mominul, who has led Bangladesh in the longest format since October 2019, was affected by the captaincy pressure. He was struggling with the bat as well and averaged just 16.20 in 2022, with 162 runs from six matches.
Overall, Bangladesh won just three Tests under Mominul's leadership, losing 12 and drawing two.
"When you play well, even if the team doesn't win, you are still in a position to motivate them. I felt that captaining a side is tough when I am not scoring and the team is not winning. I think it is best to quit the captaincy," Mominul Haque was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. IANS
