Former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza has arrived in Bangladesh Cricket Board Board (BCB) premises to solve ongoing Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hasan rift.

Monday night a news spread that former skipper Tamim told the team management that he might not be fit enough to play all nine matches in India.

Shakib, the captain of three formats, was irked to hear such a condition of the team's star batter.

Also last night, BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon called for a late-night meeting with captain Shakib and coach Chandika Hathurusingha, who had returned from Australia a few hours ago.

Earlier today [Tuesday], another news speculated that Shakib does not want to captain the country in the World Cup starting in India on October 5.

Despite the fact that other teams declared their 15-man squads well before the final cut-off date (September 27), Bangladesh is still making last-minute plans for the month-and-a-half-long event.

And, given the circumstances of this morning, deciding on a final 15 may have been even more difficult for Bangladesh.
