Mushfiqur’s aim in the two-match Test series against Australia is no less than win. He hopes for an exciting series as well.

“If the weather stays well then it will be a very exciting Test series. We will go out there to win,” he said.

Mominul was dropped from the squad for the first Test on Saturday. But all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain’s eye problem has made a way for Mominul to return on the next day.

The first of the two-match Test series will begin from August 27 at Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur. The second Test will be held at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong
