Mortaza Misses Out On ODI Squad, Ashraful Recalled
Bangladesh have named a 15-man squad for their three-match series of One-Day Internationals against Sri Lanka later this month.
Fast bowler and former captain Mashrafe Mortaza misses out on selection due to injury while Shafiul Islam and Elias Sunny have been dropped from the team that played against the West Indies in their last ODI in December 2012.
After scoring 190 in the opening Test, Mohammad Ashraful is handed a recall and Abul Hasan, who missed the end of the West Indies series due to injury, is included.
Also missing out from the squad that ended the 3-2 series over the West Indies is Naeem Islam, who makes way for the return of Ashraful as Mominul Haque also earns a call-up.
The first two matches, on 23rd and 25th March are to be played in Hambantota and the final game is on 28th March in Pallekele.
Bangladesh ODI squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Mahmudullah (vice-captain), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Jahurul Islam, Mominul Haque, Mohammad Ashraful, Nasir Hossain, Sohag Gazi, Rubel Hossain, Abdur Razzak, Nazmul Hossain, Mosharraf Hossain, Abul Hasan, Ziaur Rahman
