Bangladesh Announced Squad For Asia Cup 2023, Veteran Batter Left Out

As the excitement builds for the Asia Cup 2023, Bangladesh cricket fans have their eyes fixed on the dynamic leadership of Shakib Al Hasan, who has been appointed as the new captain after Tamim Iqbal’s recent decision to step down from the post. The 17-member squad for the tournament promises a blend of experience and fresh talent, as Bangladesh aims to make their mark in this prestigious event, commencing on August 30th.

Under the stewardship of Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh’s squad includes a mix of established players and newcomers who have been making waves on the domestic and international fronts. The inclusion of uncapped opener Tanzid Tamim is a testament to his consistency and impressive performances. Tanzid’s three half-centuries in the Emerging Asia Cup caught the selectors’ attention, and his presence provides a valuable opening option in the absence of Tamim Iqbal.

Another significant addition is batter Shamim Hossain, who has already showcased his skills in T20Is since his debut in July 2021. Now, he gets the opportunity to transfer his prowess to the 50-over format, adding depth to Bangladesh’s batting lineup.

The comeback of all-rounder Mahedi Hasan injects experience back into the squad. After being out of the ODI setup since March 2021, his return provides a valuable asset to Bangladesh’s efforts on both the batting and bowling fronts.

While there are fresh faces and returning players, the veteran batter Mahmudullah remains absent from the squad, continuing his absence from recent selections. Alongside him, Taijul Islam and Rony Talukdar, who were part of the ODI series against Afghanistan last month, have also been left out.

As the journey unfolds in the Asia Cup, Bangladesh’s first match on August 31st will see them face Sri Lanka in Pallekele. With Shakib Al Hasan at the helm, the team aims to combine their experience with the energy of new talents, creating a formidable force that hopes to compete against the best in the region.
