Mustafizur Rahman returns for Test series against Sri Lanka
Bangladesh left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman has been recalled for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka that begins next month.
Rahman, last featured in Tests in August 2015 and has been preserved for the limited overs format for Bangladesh. The 21-year-old was recently not considered for selection in the recently concluded game against India in Hyderabad, to give him more time to recover from a shoulder surgery.
However, after proving his fitness in the domestic cricket, Mustafizur will replace Shafiul Islam in the squad that recently toured India.
Also returning to the squad is Rubel Hossain, who recently picked 10 wickets in two matches for South Zone in the domestic Bangladesh Cricket League.
Imrul Kayes, who picked a thigh injury during the warm-up game against India A has not recovered completely with Mosaddek Hossain continuing to retain his place in the squad.
The two Test matches will be played between 7th March and 19th March with Galle and Colombo being the venues.
Bangladesh Test squad:
Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mosaddek Hossain, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Subashis Roy, Rubel Hossain
