The Bangladesh’s selectors have made a rejig in the Bangladesh squad for the second and final Test for the series as they have called up Mosaddek Hossain and uncapped Subashis Roy for the first time in the Test format. The selectors have rested the fast bowler Shafiul Islam for the second Test as he was tired after bowling in the first Test match. It was evident from his numbers as he just bowled a total of 12 overs in the game.
“We have rested Shafiul because he got really tired playing his first Test in a long time,
“We have called up [Mosaddek Hossain] Saikat as cover for Sabbir, who got sick in Chittagong,” Minhazul said.
Sabbir’s sickness could prove costly to the team as he was the last man standing for Bangladesh in the last game. Had he not given the strike to the tailenders, the result could have been different.
Bangladesh team needed 33 runs on the final day of the game before Ben Stokes ran over the host’s batsmen and affected 2 LBW’s in first 20 minutes of the day to hand over a defeat to hopeful Bangladesh. England pulled off a crucial win as till last day, the game was in balance and was tilting like see-saw between the two teams but Stokes with his swing did the job for England and consumed two early wickets to start the day.
The host will be hoping for the same show from its boys as captain Mushfiqur Rahim said that he is very much pleased with efforts of the boys. Surely, a win would be a big confidence booster for them but for that, they have really pull something out of the box.
Bangladesh squad for the second Test: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Taijul Islam, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Mosaddek Hossain, Nurul Hasan, Subashis Roy.
