Uncapped trio named in Tigers squad
Bangladesh Cricket Board on Tuesday announced the 20-member ODI squad for the upcoming home series' against Afghanistan and England. Pace-bowling all-rounder Alauddin Babu, paceman Shuvashish Roy and Under-19 captain Mehedi Hasan Miraz are the newest inclusions in the pool. Alauddin, Shuvashish and Mehedi were previously named in the High Performance squad. Left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel was also included in the squad. The 34-year old played the last of his three ODIs in 2008 before he joined the rebel Indian Cricket League in the same year. Mosharraf was embroiled in a match-fixing controversy after the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty in 2013. However, he was later cleared from the charges after appearing before the tribunal in 2014 where the BCB also lifted his temporary ban. Mosharraf has been performing consistently in the domestic circuit in recent times, especially in the Dhaka Premier League this season. And the national selectors finally took him into consideration for the Tigers squad as head coach Chandika Hathurusingha was looking for a partner to team up with spinner Shakib al Hasan for the upcoming series' after Arafat Sunny was suspended for illegal bowling action. Sunny, who was a regular fixture in the Tigers squad before his action was called into question, has already flown to Brisbane, Australia to appear for the bowling test, along with fast bowler Taskin Ahmed. Bangladesh squad Tamim Iqbal Khan, Taijul Islam, Soumya Sarkar, Mashrafe bin Mortaza, Imrul Kayes, Shafiul Islam, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Taskin Ahmed, Mossadek Hossain Saikot, Rubel Hossain, Shakib al Hasan, Shuvashish Roy Chowdhury, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Miraz, Nasir Hossain, Mosharraf Hossain Rubel, Mushfiqur Rahim, Alauddin Babu, Sabbir Rahman and Al-Amin Hossain
