Bangladesh have named a 14-man squad led by Wicket Keeper Mushfiqur Rahim for the First Test at Dhaka against the West Indies which begins on the 13th of this month. The National Selection committee headed by former Captain Akram Khan has picked two rookie bowlers in 21-year-old off-spinner Sohag Gazi and 20-year-old medium-pacer Abul Hasan. While Gazi is yet to play international cricket, Abul Hasan has played in 4 T20Is in which he has a career best of 2/33. Gazi seems to be a useful batsman as well with a first-class highest score of 140.
Bangladesh Squad for 1st Test at Dhaka: Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Mahmudullah (Vice-Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Junaid Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Shakib Al Hasan, Naeem Islam, Nazimuddin, Nasir Hossain, Elias Sunny, Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Abul Hasan and Sohag Gazi
