Bangladesh Squad Announced | Bangladesh T20I Squad Vs Pakistan |

The season of cricket is coming back once again and the men in green are going to start their New Year season with a T20I series against Bangladesh at home. After a lot of ifs and buts, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) reached an agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding their scheduled tour to the country.

So finally, the Bengal Tigers are going to visit Pakistan for the first time since 2008 and they are going to complete their tour in three phases.

The series will take off with a three-match T20I series at the Qaddafi Stadium Lahore. The first match will be played on the 24th of January and both the teams are getting ready for the much-anticipated series.

The Green Shirts have already announced their squad for the T20I series and the whole squad was posted on the PCB Twitter handle with many young faces in the squad. However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has also announced their T20I squad for the tour of Pakistan and we must say they have picked one of the strongest squads possible.

The experienced Bangladesh side is going to be captained by the talented all-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad. Mahmudullah last played in Pakistan in the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2017 when he played for Quetta Gladiators.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has also picked a few youngsters in the squad but the overall combination is quite experienced. The two experienced opening batters Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are going to open the innings of the Tigers. Since the wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has refused to tour Pakistan, young Liton Das has been picked in the squad as the wicket-keeper batsman.

The Bangladesh T20I squad has been updated on famous platforms like Cricinfo and Cricbuzz. The squads are also updated on the PCB facebook and PCB twitter handles. Mohammad Mithun, Mahadi Hasan and the experienced pacers like Mustafizur Rehman and Rubel Hossain have been picked in the squad as well.

Another experienced all-rounder Shafiul Islam is also part of the T20I squad along with a few talented youngsters like Afif Hossain and Mohammad Naim.

The Babar Azam led side is a good combination of youth and experience and both sides are going to strive hard for success in the upcoming T20I series.
