Mushfiqur To Quit Keeping & Bat At No. 4

Bangladeshi Test captain, Mushfiqur Rahim, is due to give up his would be giving up glove duty and bat at number 4 in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. Mushfiqur earlier stated that he is happy to continue keeping unless requested not to do so. It is believed that the team management has requested the captain to concentrate more on his captaincy and batting by giving up his wicketkeeping duties. 

If words are to be believed this will be a top decision by the management. Mushfiqur does struggle to maintain the 3 different roles that were given to him. Taking the wicketkeeping role away should take a burden away from his shoulder. This could also mean that Liton Kumar Das would get into the playing XI and take on the keeping role. With Mushfiqur batting at number 4, it seems like Mahmudullah Riyad would be the most likely to be dropped to accommodate Liton in the team. 

Everything would become clearer when Bangladesh takes on Sri Lanka for the first test match.
