Mohammad Ashraful and Rajin Saleh have been axed from the 13-man Bangladesh squad named for the one-day series against Zimbabwe starting later this month.
Uncapped batsmen Nazmus Sadat and Nadif Chowdhury have been named while there are recalls for wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim and fast bowler Tapash Baisya.
Head Selector Faruk Ahmed told reporters that "Rajin and Ashraful are not in form at the moment, so they have been dropped from the squad."
The tour includes five one-day internationals and the first Twenty20 international to be played in Bangladesh with the first match starting on 28 November.
