Pace bowler Taskin Ahmed and all-rounder Farhad Reza have been included in the Bangladesh squad for the Tri-nation ODI series in Ireland next month, a press release from the Bangladesh Cricket Board said today.
Taskin, who recovered from an injury towards the latter rounds of the Dhaka Premier League recently, was not considered for either the Ireland tour or the World Cup in England. Reza, who was one of the best performers of the DPL as well as the Bangladesh Premier League, was also not in initial consideration for the tour.
The board had initially picked a 15-member squad for the Ireland tour, with youngsters Nayeem Hasan and Yasir Ali Rabbi as stand-by members of the squad.
The Bangladesh team will leave Dhaka for Dublin on May 1,2019
