Bangladesh call up Al-Amin for first two England ODIs


Dhaka, Oct 3 (IANS) Bangladesh have brought back pacer Al-Amin Hossain into the fold for the first two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against England.

Al-Amin was left out of the squad in the just-concluded series against Afghanistan but the right-arm pacer did not have to wait too long to return to the team, reports bdnews24.com.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) named a 14-man squad in a media statement late on Sunday.

The only change made to the squad from the Afghanistan series was the omission of spinner Taijul Islam and the inclusion of Al-Amin.

Bangladesh retained spinner Mosharraf Hossain, who shone in the series decider against the Afghans, and seamer Shafiul Islam, who grabbed a wicket on Saturday.

Nasir Hossain, too, made it in, though he was never selected for any match of the Afghanistan series, which Bangladesh won 2-1.

Dhaka will host both of the first two ODIs of the three-match series against England on October 7 and 9.

The squad:

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan (vice-captain), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mosaddek Hossain, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim, Sabbir Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Mosharraf Hossain, Al-Amin Hossain, Taskin Ahmed.
