The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has released their team’s Asia Cup 2022 roster. Bangladesh’s cricket team is probably going to be led by Nazmul Hossain Shanto.
Bangladesh Cricket Team for Asia Cup 2022
Notably, more than six Bangladeshi players have been injured and are currently in rehabilitation. Litton Das, a star batsman, was recently ruled out of action after suffering a hamstring injury. Unfortunately, Nurul Hasan’s finger injury meant he couldn’t join the rest of the team in Zimbabwe. Hasan is currently in Singapore getting checked out, and while he may make the cut at the last minute, Das isn’t sure what his prognosis is after being ruled out for four weeks.
Mustafizur Rahman (ankle), Mushfiqur Rahman (thumb), and Shoriful Islam are also out due to injuries (knee). Those who were left off the Zimbabwe trip, like Yasir Ali and Mohammad Saifuddin, must also pass a fitness test before they can be considered for selection.
As if dealing with injuries weren’t enough, the BCB also has to choose a new captain. As the frontrunner, Shakib al Hasan must get the board’s OK to sponsor Betwinner News. It’s down to Mahmuduallah, Litton Das, and Nurul Hasan for the role of skipper.
Bangladesh Squad 2022:
Nazmul Hossain Shanto (Captain), Naim Sheikh, Yasir Ali Chowdhury, Afif Hossain, Zakir Hasan, Minhajul Abedin Afridi, Aminul Islam Biplob, Soumya Sarkar, Tanvir Islam, Mahmud Hasan, Mehede Rana, Sumon Khan, Mahidul Islam Bhuiyan, Abu Hider Rony and Mahadi Hasan.
