Bangladesh 15 member T20 International squad against Pakistan announced
ISLAMABAD - Bangladesh 15 member T20 International squad against Pakistan announced.
All-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad will lead Bangladesh 15-member Twenty20 International (T20I) squad against Pakistan in the upcoming three-match series, starting from January 24 in Lahore.
Experienced opener Tamim Iqbal is also part of the squad, who has played several seasons of the Pakistan Super League, and was part of the World XI that visited Pakistan in 2017 for a three-match series.
Bangladesh has also picked an uncapped pacer, Hasan Mahmud, for the series.
Earlier this week, Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim had made himself unavailable for the series citing security concerns.
“Like I have said before, my family is concerned with me travelling to Pakistan. Keeping them in a worry I do not have the mentality to go and play in Pakistan,” said Rahim. “There is no reason for the decision to change. I have already said I will not travel to Pakistan. I have written this to the board and this has been accepted. I will not be part of this full series.”
