Raqibul included in preliminary squad

Four out of 26 cricketers who played international matches for Bangladesh in the 2012-13 season have been kept out of a 30-member preliminary squad for the New Zealand series that begins in October this year.

Mohammad Ashraful (ACSU investigation), Abul Hasan (back injury), Enamul Haque jnr and Nazimuddin did not feature in the list selected by BCB. Of them, Enamul is currently playing club cricket in England, while Nazimuddin has been out of favour since playing a Test against West Indies in November last year.

Left-arm spinners Mosharraf Hossain and Saqlain Sajib found places in the preliminary squad, alongside Imrul Kayes, Raqibul Hasan, Farhad Reza, Mehrab Hossain jnr and Nazmul Hossain Milon.

Mosharraf was called up for the ODIs in Sri Lanka, but didn’t play a match while Imrul, Raqibul and Mehrab earned call-ups through their domestic performances. Read more
