Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Sunday announced 15-member squad for the three-match T20 series against Afghanistan.

The selectors have recalled batsman Mosaddek Hossain to their T20 squad for the series against Afghanistan next month.

They have axed batsman Imrul Kayes, pacer Taskin Ahmed and wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan from the squad that played their previous international assignment: the Nidahas Trophy in March. Imrul and Nurul didn't play a match in the tournament in Sri Lanka while Taskin was below par.

Opener Soumya Sarkar, who lost his central contract in 2018 has also been included while Ariful Haque retained his spot in the squad.

The Tigers will travel to Dehradun on May 29 for the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan, before embarking on the tour of West Indies in late June.


Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mahmudullah Riyad, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Sabbir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain, Ariful Haque, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Nazmul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Hider, Rubel Hossain, Abu Zayed Rahi.
