On Tuesday (29th October), Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the revised T20I squad and full Test squad for the upcoming India tour.

Ahead of the India tour, Bangladesh have received a big blow as the all-rounder and T20I captain Shakib Al Hasan has faced a suspension from ICC for not disclosing the full details of corrupt approaches to the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU). He has faced the two-year ban from all cricket, with one year of that suspended.

In the revised T20I squad, BCB has omitted Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Saifuddin, along with Shakib Al Hasan. Tamim has opted out due to the birth of his second child while Saifuddin has received a back injury. Abu Haider Rony, Mohammad Mithun and Taijul Islam have replaced the three unavailable Bangladesh cricketers in the T20I squad.
