A (Agencies) - Top-order batsman Junaid Siddique has been left out of Bangladeshs squad for the limited-overs leg of the home series against West Indies. Fast bowler Shahadat Hossain has been recalled for the one-day series, which begins on October 13.
This will be Mushfiqur Rahims first assignment as captain, following the sacking of Shakib Al Hasan earlier this month. The other changes were the axing of medium-pacer Robiul Islam and the inclusion of Dhakas 25-year-old all-rounder Elias Sunny, who impressed with his left-arm spin in the recent Bangladesh Board Cup.
Shahadat, 25, is one of the countrys most experienced fast bowlers, having played 29 Tests and 46 ODIs, but last represented Bangladesh during the tour of England in 2010. He lost his spot to younger quicks like Shafiul Islam and Rubel Hossain. Junaid, a regular in the side until the end of the 2011 WC, lost his place after failing to make a half-century in his previous eight one-day innings. West Indies begin their tour on Oct 7 with the first of two warm-up matches, followed by one T20, three ODIs and two Tests.
Twenty20 squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Mahmudullah (vc), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib Al Hasan, Alok Kapali, Naeem, Nasir, Abdur Razzak, Elias Sunny, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Nazmul Hossain. Additions to one-day squad: Suhrawadi, Shahriar Nafees, Shuvagoto, Shahadat Hossain.
