Shakib Al Hasan is Not A Captaincy Material: Danish Kaneria

While speaking on his Youtube channel, former Pakistan skipper Danish Kaneria said that Shakib Al Hasan’s captaincy was not up to the mark. He also mentioned that other players don’t want to play under Shakib Al Hasan’s leadership and Litton Das could be a better choice for Test skipper.

“His captaincy was not up to the mark. These players don’t want to play under Shakib’s captaincy. Litton Das could be a better choice, and we saw how he won the ODI series. There is no doubt Shakib is a big player, but he is not captaincy material,” Danish Kaneria said in his video.

Danish Kaneria also mentioned that Shakib Al Hasan could have been dropped in the Test match and some other pacer should be picked in the playing XI as the Chattogram stadium offers assistance to pacers.

“The wicket at Chattogram is different from the other Bangladeshi wickets as it offers some assistance for the fast bowlers. Shakib Al Hasan was injured and wasn’t expected to bowl much. Was it necessary for him to play? They could have added an extra bowler instead,” Kaneria further added.
