After much speculation, the Bangladesh Cricket Team squad for the upcoming ODI and Test series against the West Indies has been announced.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced a 24-member preliminary squad without Mashrafe bin Mortaza.
For the past few days, there has been a discussion – whether Mashrafe will be included in the squad or not. Although many in favor of keeping him considering the experience, most of them were against taking the Narail Express.
Cricket analysts have spoken “in favor of not including him” in the team mainly due to his fitness and the 2023 World Cup.
