BCB Reveal 20 Man Practice Squad

Bangladesh have recalled all-rounder Alok Kapali in a 20-man training squad ahead of the upcoming home Test series against Sri Lanka. The only other notable absentees are Anwar Hossain Monir and batsman Ehsanul Haque, who has been amongst the runs in the domestic leagues.

Abdur Razzak, a left-arm spinner, and veteran all-rounder Khaled Mahmud have been retained following strong performances in the Dhaka Premier League. Aftab Ahmed and Shahadat Hossain have been included, despite both currently undergoing treatment for injuries.

The squad will meet on February 5, ahead of the arrival of the Sri Lankans on February 17. The tourists will play three ODIs and two Tests on the first voyage across the Bay of Bengal to Bangladesh.
