Shafiul Islam recalled to Champions Trophy squad


Bangladesh has recalled Shafiul Islam to their 15-man squad for the Champions Trophy.

There was no place for wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan, pace bowler Subashis Roy and allrounder Shuvagata Hom, who were all part of Bangladesh’s most recent ODI series in Sri Lanka.

Nurul and Subashis, however, have been included in the preliminary squad that will undergo a training camp in Sussex from the 26th of April to the 6th of May and also play in a triangular ODI series in Ireland that begins in mid-May.

Shafiul last played an ODI against England in October 2016, after which he suffered a hamstring injury during the Bangladesh Premier League.

Nurul and Subashis didn’t play any ODIs in Sri Lanka, with both having played during Bangladesh’s previous series in New Zealand.

Apart from Subashis and Nurul, the middle-order batsman Nasir Hossain has also been included in the squad for the Ireland tri-series.

Nasir had last played for Bangladesh against England in October last year, after which he missed out on tours to New Zealand, India and Sri Lanka.
