Bangladesh axe Shakib as captain

September 05, 2011 17:08 IST

Bangladesh have sacked captain Shakib Al Hasan and his deputy Tamim Iqbal following the team's dismal tour of Zimbabwe, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Monday.

Zimbabwe, returning to Test cricket after a six-year exile for political reasons, beat Bangladesh by 130 runs in a one-off match.

The home side also won the one-day international series 3-2, Bangladesh's first limited-overs series defeat by Zimbabwe in six years.
