The three-match T20I series will begin on March 9 in Chattogram. The second and third games are scheduled for March 12 and 14, respectively, in Dhaka. This will be the two teams’ first bilateral T20 international series. Bangladesh announces squad for the T20 series against England.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board has named three uncapped cricketers – Towhid Hridoy, Rejaur Rahman Raja, and Tanvir Islam – to their 15-man squad.
In addition to the trio, opening batsman Rony Talukdar returned to the national squad after an eight-year absence due to his outstanding batting performances in the Bangladesh Premier League.
“All of them performed well in the BPL and that is the reason we picked them. Rony really played well in the tournament while it was the same for Shamim and as far as the debutants are concerned they did well in the shortest format to earn their spot,” BCB’s chief selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz on Wednesday.
“We are going to sit with them in the coming days to discuss with them about our plans because they are under our 20 to 22 members pool,” he said.
