Bangladesh axed former captain Mohammad Ashraful and left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak and named a 14-man squad on Tuesday for the upcoming test series against West Indies.
Middle-order batsmen Raqibul Hassan and Naeem Islam were recalled in the test side which also saw no place for paceman Shafiul Islam.
Shafiul, who claimed 2-21 in Tuesday’s final one-day international against West Indies, was left out in favour of Shahadat Hossain.
The test series begins on Friday in Chittagong, where Bangladesh skittled West Indies out for 61 runs and romped to an eight-wicket win in the third ODI.
The second test will be held in Dhaka from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2.
