BAN vs WI: Bangladesh Call Up Uncapped Trio For ODI Series Against West Indies
Bangladesh on Saturday called up uncapped all-rounder Mahedi Hasan and pace bowlers Hasan Mahmud and Shoriful Islam in their 18-man squad for the One-day International series against the West Indies. The series, which begins with the first match in Dhaka on January 20, marks the return of international cricket to Bangladesh after a Covid-19 disruption.
Chief selector Minhajul Abedin said they announced a relatively large squad as a precaution, with the series being held under strict health protocols.
“We took several extra players because we are facing a pandemic now. You cannot add a player to the squad anytime in this kind of situation,” he said.
“Our three uncapped players Mahedi, Hasan and Shoriful have all did well in domestic cricket recently. We included them because we thought it’s also a time for us to look for the future,” he added.
The series is also Bangladesh’s first since pace bowler Mashrafe Mortaza stepped down as captain in March.
Taskin Ahmed was recalled in a pace heavy squad, which also included Rubel Hossain and Mustafizur Rahman.
The second and third ODIs of the series will be on January 22 and 25, respectively in Dhaka and Chittagong.
