Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan Papon said he is not worried about Test captain Mominul Haque’s captaincy but his poor form.

Mominul, scored a patient hundred in Pallekele last year against Sri Lanka and an important 88 in Mount Maunganui against New Zealand. However, he has been in poor form since the famous Test win against New Zealand.

In nine innings after that, the Bangladesh captain has reached double figures only once.

In the first Test of the series, he scored just two off 19 deliveries and could not bat in the second session. There was no change in his fortune in the next Test as well as he scored nine in the first innings and a duck in the second.

"We are not worried about his captaincy. The problem is with his batting. He is not getting runs. It is a matter of concern. When a captain does not perform, imagine how stressful he becomes,” said Papon

“We can only hope that Mominul returns to form soon. Today I held a meeting with him. I will sit in a long discussion tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Let's discuss and see what he says. Then we will find out the reason,” he added.
