Bangladesh have dropped former captain Mohammad Ashraful ahead of the One-Day International leg of their tour of England, Ireland and Scotland.

They will play three ODIs against England followed by two matches against Ireland and one each against Scotland and the Netherlands from 8th to 20th July.

All-rounders Suhwaradi Shuvo and Naeem Islam have also been omitted with batsmen Raqibul Hasan and Faisal Hossain as well as quick bowler Nazmul Hossain called up.

Roqibul's return came after he briefly retired, changed his mind and was then banned by the Bangladesh Cricket Board earler in the year.

Mashrafe Mortaza returns as captain, the position he held in 2009 before injury and poor form led to Shakib Al Hasan taking over the reins.

Bangladesh ODI squad: Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Roqibul Hasan, Faisal Hossain, Mahmudullah, Jahurul Islam, Mashrafe Mortaza, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Nazmul Hossain, Syed Rasel, Abdur Razzak
