The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) takes another shocking turn as they decided to take 16-man squad instead of 15 for the tour of New Zealand. After a lot of controversy and disappointment expressed by Kayes, the board have decided to include the batsman to the ODI squad.
There is already a lot going on after the inclusion of Sabbir Rahman into the squad. It is yet to be revealed who actually reduced the ban of Sabbir as the selectors, the Board President and the discipline community all have declined to reveal the name.
With the inclusion of Kayes, now another one has bitten the dust. Many were stunned after Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar were preferred over Kayes when the squad was announced. And the selectors were heavily criticized.
The batsman himself was also disappointed after being axed and asked the selectors for a proper reason. He also slammed the selectors for miscommunication as they didn’t inform any reason to drop him.
Squad: Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Shakib al Hasan (VC) , Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Md Mithun, Md Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Sabbir Rahman, Nayeem Hasan.
