Bangladesh have announced their Test squad for their tour of Sri Lanka.
Fast bowler Mustaifizur Rahman finally returns to the squad after missing out due to a shoulder injury.
Mustafizur was not included in the Test squad for the one-off Test against India as the management felt he wasn’t 100% fit. However, he went back to Bangladesh's first-class competition, playing two rounds of the Bangladesh Cricket League and proving himself fit.
Bangladesh's chief selector, Minhajul Abedin said,
I am really impressed with the way he bowled in the second innings. I think he got back his rhythm.
Fast bowler Rubel Hossain also returns to the squad, after missing out due to lack of form.
Bangladesh are set to play 2 Test matches against Sri Lanka, the first starting on March 7th and the second on March 15th, which will also mark Bangladesh’s 100th Test match.
Bangladesh Test squad:
Mushfiqur Rahim (c), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, Mosaddek Hossain, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Subashis Roy, Rubel Hossain.
