WI vs BAN – Anamul Haque recalled for West Indies white-ball series; Mustafizur Rahman back in Test squad


Anamul Haque has earned a recall into the Bangladesh white-ball squads following his record-breaking run in the recently-concluded Dhaka Premier League List A competition, while Mustafizur Rahman has been named in all three squads for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

Bangladesh will play two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is on their tour to the Caribbean that starts next month.

Anamul broke Tom Moody’s 31-year-old record of scoring the most runs in a one-day competition when he amassed 1138 runs for Prime Bank Cricket Club. He last played an ODI for Bangladesh in July 2019, while it has been more than six years since he featured in a T20I. Apart from him, wicketkeeper-batter Nurul Hasan and medium-pacer Mohammad Saifuddin were also brought back into both white-ball squads.
Mosaddek Hossain was the biggest gainer after he was recalled into all three squads, in Mushfiqur Rahim’s absence. Mushfiqur had pulled out of the tour to take part in the Hajj pilgrimage.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz was named in the Test squad after he missed the ongoing Sri Lanka series due to a hand injury.

Mustafizur Rahman, too, returned to the Test squad after a year, following a reportedly long discussion with the BCB. While being named in the ODI and T20I squads was a given, Mustafizur had initially shown lesser interest in a Test return because of his IPL workload. But he later agreed to be named in the side as well. It is worth noting that Mustafizur does not have a red-ball central contract with the BCB.

Bangladesh are scheduled to leave for the Caribbean on June 5. While the Tests are part of the ICC World Test Championship, the ODIs will not be part of the ICC Super League competition.
