Bangladesh all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin has been pulled out of the ODI and T20 international squads for the Tour of West Indies 2022 due to fitness concerns. The 25-year-old, who has taken 41 wickets from 29 ODIs and 31 wickets in 29 T20 internationals, has made a recovery from a back injury but is yet to attain optimal bowling fitness. 
Saifuddin did not get a chance to return to the national team after getting injured in last year's T20 World Cup. Despite playing domestic cricket, he was excluded from the national team due to fitness issues.
BCB Chief Sports Physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury said: “Although Shaif Uddin is training, we feel that at the moment he has not reached the bowling fitness level required to cope with the intensity of international cricket. He will miss the West Indies series as he continues his rehab and works on his fitness.”
However, fast bowlers Shoriful Islam and Taskin Ahmed have returned to the national team after recovering from injuries. The left-arm pacer has already joined the Test team and the right-arm pacer Taskin will join the ODI and T20 squads soon.
The two-match T20I series between Bangladesh and the West Indies will be on July 2 and 3. While the three-match ODI series will be played on July 10, 13, and 16 respectively.
