Mushfiqur regrets quitting captaincy

Mushfiqur Rahim admits he made a mistake in resigning the captaincy of Bangladesh and plans to hold talks with the country's cricket board, the BCB.

The wicketkeeper announced last week, at the end of the three-match one-day series defeat to Zimbabwe, that he was standing down as he was concerned over his contribution with the bat and as a leader.

He continued to skipper the Tigers in the two Twenty20 matches that followed, with the series drawn 1-1. He told ESPN Cricinfo: “After resigning I have realised that I should have discussed the matter with the BCB, who have made me the captain.

It was my mistake. People from the BCB have told me that we will hold discussions when I am back. I have let them know my decision, now it's for them to decide,” he said.
