Pace bowler Rubel Hossain and opener Imrul Kayes have returned to the Bangladesh squad for the three-match ODI series against the West Indies next match.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the 15-member team today with Mushfiqur Rahim leading the side in a series that also included one T20i and two Tests.

Imrul has been drafted in place of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who is now serving a six-month ban from all cricket on disciplinary grounds. Rubel replaced all-rounder Ziaur Rahman.

The Tigers, who are yet to win a match this year, are scheduled to fly to the West Indies on August 13. Bangladesh last visited the West Indies in 2009 when they won both the ODI and Test series against a depleted Caribbean side.    

Bangladesh’s first two ODIs will be held on August 20, 22 at Granada while the last one on August 25 will be held at Saint Kitts, which will also host the lone T20i on August 27.

Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Hoque, Shamsur Rahman, Mominul Hoque, Rubel Hossain, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Mohammad Mithun, Abdur Razzak, Masrafe Bin Mortaza, Shohag Gazi, Taskin Ahmed, Imrul Kayes and Al-Amin Hossain.
