The call might have come due to Taskin Ahmed’s poor show in the practice match. He picked up only one wicket and conceded 57 runs in 8 overs. However, Shafiul has often been called up in the squad in the recent past, but couldn’t get a game in the series in the end.

SQUAD: Tamim Iqbal (c), Farhad Reza, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mushfiqur Rahim, Rubel Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mustafizur Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Mohammad Mithun, Taskin Ahmed, Taijul Islam, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Shafiu Islam.
