Mushfiqur Rahim has been retained as Bangladesh’s captain, after he accepted the job following a discussion with BCB president Nazmul Hassan. The Bangladesh board handed Mushfiqur – who hadresigned his post following Bangladesh’s ODI series loss to Zimbabwe in May – the captaincy till December 31 this year, meaning he will be in charge till the home series against New Zealand that begins in October.

Mushfiqur, in the days following his resignation, had admitted to making a “mistake”. The board had said they would conduct an investigation into the matter, but it was ultimately Mushfiqur’s discussion with Hassan that produced the decision.

“The tenures of Mushfiqur Rahim and [vice-captain]Mahmudullah ended recently,” the BCB’s media committee chairman, Jalal Yunus, said. “Mushfiqur has talked to the president, there he agreed to lead Bangladesh. He and Mahmudullah have been given extension as captain and vice-captain till December 31, 2013.”
