Shakib, Taskin return for second Test against Pakistan


Sports desk, Nov 30: All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and pacer Taskin Ahmed have returned to Bangladesh’s Test squad for the second and final Test against Pakistan, while opener Mohammad Naim Sheikh received his maiden call-up to the Test squad, as the BCB announced a 20-man squad on Tuesday (November 30). Nobody was dropped out from the squad named for the opening Test.

Taskin and Shakib were declared fit, after the all-rounder failed to recover from his hamstring injury in time for the Chattogram Test that Bangladesh lost to Pakistan by eight wickets.

The final Test of the series is scheduled to begin on December 4. It’s Bangladesh’s final chance to pick up a solitary win against Bangladesh, after having being whitewashed in the T20I series and lagging behind in the Test series.

Squad: Mominul Haque (c), Shadman Islam, Saif Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Kumer Das, Yasir Ali Rabbi, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain Chowdhury, Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi, Nayeem Hasan, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Rejaur Rahman Raja, Khaled Ahmed, Shohidul Islam, Mohammad Naim Sheikh
