BCB vows to investigate skipper Rahim's 'sudden' resignation decision

Islamabad, May 10 (ANI): The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan has pledged to get to the bottom of the sudden decision of captain Mushfiqur Rahim's resignation, hinting that there were other contributing factors behind the decision.

Hassan's comment is not a surprise given Rahim's inability to control himself, and given how easily Bangladesh went down to Zimbabwe in the ODI on Wednesday, it was enough for him to get riled, the Daily Times reports.

Stating that defeat to Zimbabwe would obviously lead to anger in the Bangladesh dressing room, the report further said that there was a lack of hunger, which was noticeable in the players' body language, during the team's flop show in Zimbabwe.

According to the report, there was however, a lot of expectation on Bangladesh as a team that can beat West Indies and Sri Lanka would certainly be expected to win the subsequent series against Zimbabwe.

Instead the pressure of expectation got to the players, some taking the contest too lightly while others, like Mushfiqur, visibly crumbled, the report added. (ANI)
