BCB President said, ‘Asia Cup is the biggest tournament after the World Cup. Our performance in the last World Cup was very poor. I don’t know if I can suddenly go out so soon. If we have a mindset in our head, we want to improve and if we don’t start this mindset from the Asia Cup, it will be worse going to the World Cup.’

Meanwhile, BCB has given a 17-member team for the Asia Cup. Although there are a lot of batsmen in this squad, there is no recognized opener except Enamul Haque Vijay and Parvez Hossain Imon. Sheikh Mehdi Hasan is in the alternative building. Apart from this, the team management has kept Mushfiqur Rahim, Mehdi Hasan Miraj and Shakib Al Hasan in mind. Papon left the decision on Shakib.

Papon said, ‘No Tamim, no Liton. Kapal Good Victory was added a few months ago, now at least. Tried with some others. Munim a few matches and Eamon one match, but not enough. They should be given more time.’
