Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed and off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz have been called up to the Bangladesh T20 squad for the three-match series against the West Indies which kicks off in Dominica on 02 July.

Miraz has not played a T20 international since December 2018 but has been a regular in Tests and ODIs for Bangladesh. Taskin meanwhile, has made a full recovery from an injury sustained in South Africa in April this year and makes his return to international cricket.

 

The Bangladesh T20 squad originally named for the series, has been hit hard by injuries with pacer Shohidul Islam pulling out prior to the tour. Batsman Yasir Ali Chowdhury was forced to return home from Antigua with a back injury while allrounder Shaif Uddin was withdrawn as he is still short of optimal fitness for international cricket:
