Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Thursday announced the 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.
The BCB also named leg-spinner Aminul Islam and pacer Rubel Hossain as standby in a press conference held at Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
There was no surprise in the team as all of the members, sans Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, who are the part of the ongoing five-match T20 series against New Zealand, were included in the World Cup-bound squad.
Bangladesh included Shamim Hossain in the World Cup squad. Shamim was part of Bangladesh’s U-19 team that won the World Cup in 2020.
