Sridharan Sriram, the head coach of Bangladesh, explained why Mahmudullah, a former captain, was not selected for the T20 World Cup squad. In the last ten years, the experienced all-around player has played a crucial role in Bangladeshi cricket.
However, Sriram commented that the board and management believed it was time to move on and groom new people to replace Mahmudullah absence. Because of his finishing skills at No. 6, the trainer also compared the all-rounder to Indian legend MS Dhoni.
Here’s what Sriram had to say about letting go of the experienced all-rounder when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday:
“There should always be successors in mind. My comparisons of Mahmudullah with Dhoni have always been based on how well he has done. Similar to how Dhoni batted at No. 6 for India, he did. He also completed many games for Bangladesh. Dhoni couldn’t keep playing, right?
“You have to decide on the successors of the players. It is the right time to find someone who can play the role of Mahmudullah in the team. If the new players don’t play, then we won’t find any alternative.”
Sridharan Sriram discusses his conversation with Mahmudullah:
Bangladeshi coach Sridharan Sriram claimed that it was he who undertook the challenging task of having an open discussion with the 36-year-old legend. Even though he was the “bad guy in the conversation”, Sridharan Sriram admitted that he had the “highest respect” for a person who had consistently delivered outstanding results for his nation:
“It is never an easy conversation. He is the most capped T20 player in Bangladesh. I have the utmost respect for him. I have to be the bad guy in the conversation.”
