Bangladesh vs England

Bangladesh Cricket Board has called up three uncapped players for their forthcoming home series against Afghanistan and England.

The board announced a 20-man ODI pool for the tours in a media statement on Tuesday.

Bangladesh under-19 captain in the last Youth World Cup, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, pacer Subashis Roy and allrounder Alauddin Babu have got their first calls to the national team.

Legspinner Jubair Hossain, wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Kumar Das, pacer Kamrul Islam Rabbi and spinner Arafat Sunny have been dropped from the ODI team. They played their last match in November 2015.

Suspended southpaw Sunny has flown to Australia for his bowling action assessment and injury had earlier ruled seamer Mustafizur Rahman out of the two series.

Other suspended bowler Taskin Ahmed, however, was given the nod. He is in Brisbane for the ICC test along with Sunny.

“The team for Afghanistan series will definitely be made from this list. And it’s very unlikely that someone outside this list will be selected for England series, unless something important comes up,” Habibul Bashar, a member of the selection panel, told

Chief selector Minhajul Abedin said the team for Afghanistan series will be announced on Sep 18.

Bangladesh will play three ODIs against Afghanistan – scheduled for Sep 25, 29 and Oct 1 – in Dhaka.

The hosts will then take on England over five weeks that will feature three one-dayers and two Tests.
