Bangladesh call up uncapped players for Africa tour

Written by: Staff

DHAKA, July 4 (Reuters) Bangladesh cricket officials have called up uncapped batsmen Sakib Al Hasan and Forhad Reza for a 15-man one-day squad for the upcoming Kenya and Zimbabwe tour.

Bangladesh will play three one-day internationals against Kenya and five one-dayers against Zimbabwe later this month and early August.

Both left-handed batsman Sakib and top-order and right-arm medium pacer Forhad are now touring Zimbabwe with the Bangladesh A team.

The selectors have also recalled Mushfiqur Rahim, who has played two tests but is yet to make his one-day debut.

''We feel it is high time we gave our young players some exposure and this is why we have included the young trio,'' chief selector Faruk Ahmed told Reuters.

Squad: Habibul Bashar (captain), Khaled Mashud, Javed Omar, Mohammad Rafique, Rajin Saleh, Mohammad Ashraful, Mashrafe Mortaza, Aftab Ahmed, Mushfiqur Rahim, Alok Kapali, Shahriar Nafees, Shahadat Hossain, Syed Rasel, Sakib Al Hasan and Forhad Reza.
