Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim wants more time to correct his mistakes after making the error of electing to field in the two-much Test series in South Africa.
“The blame is coming at me, because I decided to field first in both Tests. Maybe I haven’t been leading properly and that’s why the team isn’t doing well,” Mushfiqur said on Sunday (October 8). “This is why I am saying that I should be given opportunity to correct my mistakes,” he said.
The under-fire captain left it up to the board to take a call on his future. “Why should I [resign], because it is not an individual’s game. It is a team game. Obviously all the blame comes to me being the captain. The board will decide about me, since there’s a lot of time before the next Test series,” he added.
“It is up to the board. They gave me the honour and opportunity. They gave me the respect to lead the side. I tried my level best with honesty. If they are not satisfied, they will take their decision. I only tried to describe what happened in the middle. I was being honest with myself. If someone is not happy with my comment, they have all the right to decide what they want to do with the team and myself,” he said.
