The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have announced that wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim will continue captaining the national team until the 2015 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The BCB’s decision comes after a board of directors meeting in Dhaka.

“I feel honoured by the faith the board has shown in my ability to lead the Bangladesh team,” Rahim said. “This is also a fantastic opportunity for me to plan for the future with Shane (Bangladesh coach Shane Jurgensen), the players and the rest of the management.

“We have started to develop a better degree of consistency in recent times and I will try [with] my heart and soul to maintain that positive vibe. The path ahead is a challenging one but Insha-Allah we will reach our desired goals across all formats of the game.”

Rahim resigned as captain in May this year after Bangladesh lost an ODI series to Zimbabwe, however he regained his position of authority a short while later when admitting that the decision to step down had been a huge mistake.
