Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the 21-member preliminary squad for the upcoming Sri Lanka Test series.

Uncapped pace trio Shoriful Islam, Mukidul Islam Mugdho and Shohidul Islam have been included to the squad while all-rounder Shuvagata Hom Chowdhury has also returned.

The Bangladesh Team will leave Dhaka on 12 April for a two-match away series. All 21 members of the preliminary side will travel to Sri Lanka:

"We have decided to take the preliminary squad to Sri Lanka as it would help our preparation and also give exposure to a number of players who are in our thinking for the longer version going forward. The squad for the Test series will be announced after our inter-squad warm up game," said chief selector Minhajul Abedin. 

"They (Shoriful, Mukidul and Shohidul)  have been in our HP set up and have impressed in whichever version they have played in. Mukidul and Shohidul in particular, have caught attentions in domestic first class this season and are future Test prospects. They all have age on their side and are talented."

"Shuvagata is coming back after a while but he has been a consistent performer in first class cricket. We have considered him as a batting all-rounder but his off break is pretty handy also and gives us an option in the spin department.," Minhajul concluded. 

PRELIMINARY SQUAD

Mominul Haque, Litton Kumer Das, Md Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal Khan, Shadman Islam, Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi, Taijul Islam, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hassan Miraz, Nayeem Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain Chowdhury, Mohammed Saif Hassan, Yasir Ali Chowdhury, Shoriful Islam, Syed Khaled Ahmed, Mukidul Islam Mugdho, Shuvagata Hom Chowdhury, Shohidul Islam, Quazi Nurul Hasan Sohan
