This year’s T20 World Cup could be the end of an era for Bangladesh. Because this is the possible last World Cup for Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad. Before such a tournament, fans’ expectations from them are not less. Captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto joined that list.

In a video published on BCB’s verified Facebook page on Wednesday (May 29), Shanto shared his thoughts on the World Cup. While talking about Shakib-Mahmudullah, Shanto said, ‘Being in their team is a big plus point. When such an experienced cricketer is with the team, the task of youngsters becomes much easier. Especially for many who will be playing in T20 World Cup for the first time, it is very inspiring. Besides, there is a lot to learn from them.’

Expressing his request to Shakib, Shanto further said, ‘I hope that if I need any kind of help, they will help me. So far they are doing just that. They are always there when I need advice. I hope the World Cup will be no exception. I would like Shakib bhai to share his experience with every cricketer. The kind of experience that he has faced, the ideas that young cricketers will benefit from. Allready that he does. It will be asked separately from Shakib Bhai in this place.’

Shanta’s first World Cup as captain may be Shakib and Mahmudullah’s last as players. Although no announcement has been made by either of them, nothing is believed to be the case. The current captain is confident of doing something special in the World Cup for the two former captains, two veteran cricketers of the country.
