Bangladesh Team for ICC World Cup
Here is the list of the fifteen members of the Bangladesh World Cup squad:
Surprise selection of Abu Jayed
Bangladeshi selectors have selected team as expected except Abu Jayed who was preferred over Taskin Ahmed. Abu Jayed hasn’t played an ODI for Bangladesh; however, he has played five tests and three T20s. His ability to swing the ball has impressed the head coach Steve Rhodes and selectors.
Aby Jayed was happily surprised by his selection. “I played well in two matches of DPL in this (very) field recently and I felt I could have been in the 20-member preliminary squad. So I was surprised when I heard that I am in the 15-member squad.”
Jayed wants to repay the faith shown in him by the selection committee. “It’s nice to be picked in the 15-member squad but now the challenge is to make a place in the playing XI and repay back the faith shown by the team management.”
Shakib Al Hasan to leave IPL
Shakib Al Hasan who is playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2019 will be leaving for his country soon. He will join the preparatory camp for the World Cup. Shakib’s performance and experience will be vital for Bangladesh team.
