Anamul included as 29-man Bangladesh squad named
The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Thursday announced a 29-member preliminary squad for the home series against Australia and tour of South Africa this year. National discards Anamul Haque and Al Amin Hossain were named in the squad. The duo were part of the last national preliminary squad, for the tours of India and Sri Lanka, earlier this year. Middle-order batsman Nasir Hossain was also named in the squad after he missed Bangladesh’s 2017 Champions Trophy campaign. The squad will begin fitness camp from July 10 albeit not with full attendance. Tamim Iqbal will miss the camp provided he flies off to London in the first week of July to join Essex Eagles for the NatWest T20 Blast. Tamim earned a deal from the English County Cricket Club following his scintillating performance in the recently concluded Champions Trophy. The left-handed batsman finished as the third highest-scorer in the eight-nation tournament with 293 runs in four innings at an average of 73.25.

Rubel Hossain will miss the camp due to injury. The right-arm speedster picked up a bizarre jaw fracture following Bangladesh’s semi-final against India in the Champions Trophy after colliding with a door in the team hotel. Rubel underwent surgery on Wednesday and will take at least four weeks to recover. Meanwhile, the likes of Anamul and Liton Das will be touring Australia with the BCB High Performance Unit. The HP team is set to leave Dhaka on July 1 for one three-day game and five one-day matches, scheduled to be held in Darwin.
