Left-arm paceman Mustafizur Rahman is all set to return to action as the BCB Tuesday announced a 16-man squad for the three-match ODI series against host West Indies.

Mustafizur made his way to the squad for the limited-over format after recovering from his left-toe injury.

He missed out on the three-game T20I series against Afghanistan and the two-match Test series against the Windies, scheduled to begin Wednesday in Antigua.

Compared to the last squad which played the final of the tri-nation series against Sri Lanka in Dhaka earlier this year, there were five new additions and six exclusions.

Middle-order batsman Mosaddek Hossain returned to the ODI fold after almost a year, having last played an ODI against India at the 2017 Champions Trophy in June.

Top-order batsman Nazmul Hossain Shanto, left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam Apu and pacers Abu Haider and Abu Jayed received their maiden ODI call-ups.

Middle-order batsman Nasir Hossain is out due to injury while spinner Sanjamul Islam, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Mithun and pacemen Abul Hasan and Saifuddin also missed out on places.

Bangladesh will take on the Windies in the three ODIs on July 22, 25 and 28 respectively.

Squad

Mashrafe bin Mortaza (Captain), Shakib al Hasan (Vice Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Nazmul Islam Apu, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Haider and Abu Jayed
