Bangladesh will field a full-strength squad for this month’s three-match one-day international series against Afghanistan, chief selector Minhajul Abedin told reporters in Dhaka on Tuesday.
A 30-member preliminary Bangladesh squad wrapped up their six-week-long conditioning camp on Tuesday ahead of the back-to-back series against Afghanistan and England.
Afghanistan will arrive in Dhaka on September 21 for their first-ever bilateral series against Bangladesh, which includes three ODIs, respectively on September 25, 28 and October 1.
On the final day of their preliminary squad, selectors announced a 20-man pool for ODI series which included few surprises.
Left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain has been recalled after eight years while selectors also included uncapped all-rounders Alauddin Babu and Mehedi Hasan, the latter having captained the Bangladesh Under-19 side in recent World Cup.
“We do not want to take any risk. Our best possible squad will play,” said Abedin.
“ We will not make any experiments with any new player. As this is a series, not a practice match, we will field our best possible squad that will also play against England,” he said, adding that final squad would be announced on September 30.
England will arrive on September 30 to play two Tests and three ODIs against the home side.
