Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, and Aminul Islam Biplob, who were not in the team for personal reasons in the last series, have returned to the team.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, and Aminul Islam Biplob were not in the latest Australia series at home due to personal reasons. All three have returned to the squad for the series against New Zealand.
Mushfiqur returned to the country in the middle of his visit to Zimbabwe due to the illness of his parents. Aminul Islam Biplob returned home after hearing the news of his father’s death during a visit to Zimbabwe. Liton Das returned to the country due to his father-in-law’s illness.
Mohammad Mithun was in the squad for the Zimbabwe and Australia series. However, he could not play in any of the matches of the last two series. Mithun last played a T20 match in New Zealand.
Despite a great performance in the T20 series against Zimbabwe, the majestic government could not do anything about the Australia series. He has also been included in the New Zealand series squad.
The selectors did not include Tamim Iqbal, who is in the process of rehabilitation after recovering from an injury. However, the board had planned to bring him back to the team through this series. He will also rest in this series.
