Participation of Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza in the upcoming home series is not certain due to his involvement in the national election, said BCB president Nazmul Hasan. 

Mashrafe has already expressed his wish to vie in the general election that is supposed to take place at the end of December as he has collected a nomination form to contest as an Awami League candidate at Narail 2 constituent.  

Bangladesh will play a three-match ODI series against the visiting West Indies, on December 9, 11 and 14 respectively, after completing the two-game Test series. 

If Mashrafe eventually takes part in the election, he will face the clash of schedules between his political and playing commitments, and Thursday, the BCB boss was asked what Masharafe is going to do. 

“It is a tough question. He has a deadline to submit his nomination. I am not aware of his activities, and when he will complete his form. I am likely to meet him (Thursday) and will have a detailed discussion. He will of course play if there is opportunity, even if it is for one day. Cricket is always a priority to him,” said Nazmul.

“We are not sure how long Mashrafe will play. Given his physical condition, it is a big thing that he’s still playing. He doesn’t play for us as player, he plays as a captain. His captaincy is important to us. We are not being able to find a leader like him, and we’re doubtful if we’ll ever find one. He might retire after the World Cup next year. If that is the case then it is a matter of months. In that regard, this is the best situation for me (contesting polls besides playing). If he retires after a few months then what will he do for the next four and a half years?” the BCB chief added.
