Test Cricket


As the no. 1 all rounder in test cricket, Shakib al Hasan requested for 6 months rest from test cricket, Bangladesh traveled to South Africa without their star player. On this tour, Bangladesh plays 2 tests, 3 ODIs and 2 T20Is against the home team South Africa.

The regular captain of Bangaldesh test team, Mushfiqur Rahim will lead the side once again on this tour. BCB has recalled Mahmudullah Riyad to cover the gap of Shakib al Hasan. Mahmudullah was dropped for Bangladesh’s historic 100th Test, played in Sri Lanka, owing to lack of form and missed both the Tests against Australia. His experience playing in foreign conditions is understood to have been integral in his recall to the setup, especially with Shakib deciding to take a break.

Rubel Hossain, the pace bowler returning to the squad for the first time since January. He faced NOC issues for past few days, but as it cleared on Thursday, he will fly and join the squad in South Africa in next two days time. The pace bowler Subhasis Roy is also part of the 15-member squad while spin all rounder Nasir Hossain has been left out with the selectors deciding to go in with a pace heavy unit for the two Tests at Potchefstroom and Bloemfontein.

“We considered Mahmudullah as we feel that he can play well on bouncy wickets where the ball comes to the bat at a quick pace. We have taken a spinner Taijul Islam in place of Shakib as initially we preferred to have five-man pace unit along with Shakib and Mehidy Hasan,” said by BCB Cheif Selector Minhajul Abedin.
