BAN vs ENG: Bangladesh Announce T20I Squad For First Two Matches; Rony Talukdar Earns Call-Up


England is presently touring Bangladesh for 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. This is a high-voltage series as Bangladesh is pretty competitive in its own backyard. The spin-friendly and sluggish conditions make it a batter’s nightmare and spinners love playing on the turning tracks of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh has named its T20I squad and there are some bold decisions taken. 30-year-old Bangladeshi all-rounder Soumya Sarkar has been left out of the side and Rony Talukdar has earned a call-up after a 8-year hiatus.

Mosaddek Hossain, Shoriful Islam, and Yasir Ali were also left out of the squad after being a part of Bangladesh’s squad in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 that took place in Australia.

On the other hand, Shamim Hossain returns to the squad after a 2-year absence and he is hoping to make his presence felt.

Rony Talukdar had a stellar BPL 2023

Talukdar comes into the side after being the second-highest run-getter in the recently-concluded Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). He mustered 425 runs in 13 matches and had a decent average of 35.42.

Talented pacer Ebadot Hossain too has not been able to find a place in the squad. Tanvir Islam was drafted into the squad after he was the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament, bagging 17 wickets in the tournament.

The T20I series begins from 9th March 2023

Bangladesh locks horns with England in the 3-match T20I series and it commences on 9th March 2023. The other 2 T20Is will be played on 12th March 2023 and 14th March 2023 respectively.

This is a perfect opportunity for England to get used to the sub-continent wickets, keeping in mind the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 that will be taking place in the spin-friendly conditions of India.

Notably, England is the defending champions of the ICC ODI World Cup, having edged past New Zealand in the super-over in the ICC ODI World Cup 2019 that took place in England itself.

Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Nasum Ahmed, Nurul Hasan, Shamim Hossain, Rony Talukdar, Towhid Hridoy, Rejaur Rahman, Tanvir Islam
