The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the squad for their five-match T20I series against Australia, starting from August 03.
All the matches will be played behind closed doors at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
Rubel Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Taijul Islam and Mohammad Mithun, who were a part of the Bangladesh ODI squad in Zimbabwe, have been added to the squad for Australia T20Is.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim won’t be available for the Twenty20 series.
The 34-year-old, who returned home after the only Test series against Zimbabwe, could not get into the mandatory 10-day quarantine.
BCB had requested Cricket Australia to allow a change but their plea was rejected.
