Dhaka. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced a 19-man squad for the five-match T20I series against New Zealand, in which Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das have also been included.
Bangladesh chief selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz, “It’s a relief when you see two of your best batsmen back in the team. I’m sure this is their last competitive cricket before the World Cup and looking at it Will make the most of it.”
Mushfiqur had returned midway from the Zimbabwe tour, due to which he needed to be in quarantine for 10 days to join the series against Australia. However, he could not do so and had to be ruled out of the series against Australia.
Bangladesh squad: Mahmudullah (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Musadek Hossain Saikat, Afif Naeem Sheikh, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Shamim Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Shaif Udin, Shoriful Islam, Taijul Islam, Shaq Mehdi Hassan, Aminul Islam Biplob and Nasum Ahmed.
