Bangladesh have named Najmul Hossain Shanto as their new captain for all three formats. Shanto’s first big task will be the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 in the US and West Indies later this year.
Shanto impressed as captain in the two-match Test series against New Zealand, which Bangladesh drew 1-1 at home in November-December 2023.
He was also the captain during the away tour against the Kiwis where Bangladesh managed to win one game each in the ODI and T20I series.
In his brief time as captain, Shanto has three victories in 11 games.
