Shanto has been leading the team as a stand-in captain in the absence of regular captain Shakib Al Hasan. Prior to the ICC Cricket World Cup held in India last year, Shakib pointed that he would not be in captain's role after the tournament.

BCB brought a new selector committee along with the new captain. Only Abdur Razzaque was kept there from the previous committee while Minhazul Abedin Nannu and Habibul Bashar were dropped from there. Junior selector committee member Hannan Sarkar was added as the third member of the committee led by Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu.
