Bangladesh 15-man squad announced for India Test

BCB have announced the 15-man squad for the only test against India. The trio – Mushfiqur, Mominul and Imrul have been given the green light and are back in the squad after missing out the 2nd test in New Zealand. Liton Das makes his way back into the squad after scoring a double century recently – good to see him making it into the squad. A bit harsh on Nurul Hasan to be dropped – who did pretty well when he replaced Mushfiqur in New Zealand for the second test in Christchurch.

Shafiul Islam also makes it to the 15-man squad replacing Rubel Hussain – although not sure if he will get into the playing 11 as it seems like it will be a spin dominant attack. Nazmul Hossain Shanto & Mustafizur Rahman has also been left out of the squad. Cheif selector Minhajul Abedin confirmed that the reason why Mustafizur Rahman was not picked was due to him not reaching full fitness yet. 

In general, the squad seems decent except for the selection of Mahmudullah Riyad. He has not been in good touch lately and doesn’t contribute with the ball much these days. Would have preferred Mossadek Hossain over him. 

The 15-man squad list is as below –

  1. Mushfiqur Rahim (c & wk)
  2. Tamim Iqbal
  3. Soumya Sarkar
  4. Mahmudullah
  5. Shakib Al Hasan
  6. Mehedi Hasan Miraz
  7. Imrul Kayes
  8. Mominul Haque
  9. Sabbir Rahman
  10. Liton Das (wk)
  11. Taskin Ahmed
  12. Shuvashish Roy
  13. Taijul Islam
  14. Kamrul Islam Rabbi
  15. Shafiul Islam

What are your thoughts with regards to the 15-man squad? Who do you think should make it into the playing 11?

  1. Bangladesh should have picked the FIZZ because he had good experience playing in that pitch for Sunrisers in IPL. Big loss for the team.
