WI vs BAN: Bangladesh announces multi-format squads for the West Indies tour
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), on Monday, announced the squads for the upcoming multi-format tour of the West Indies in June-July. The tour consists of two Tests, three T20 Internationals (T20Is) and three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), starting June 16 in Antigua.
Speedster Mustafizur Rahman is all set to make his return to red-ball cricket as he was named in the Test outfit. Notably, Mustafizur has not featured in Bangladesh’s red-ball team since the home series against the same opposition in February last year. The two-match Test series is also part of the ongoing World Test Championship (2021-2023).
After completing the Test matches, the two sides will take on each other in the white-ball format in three T20I and as many ODIs during July. Left-hand batter Tamim Iqbal was named as captain of the one-day squad, while all-rounder Mahmudullah will lead the T20 side.
