Bangladesh Recall Al-Amin Hossain And Arafat Sunny For India T20I Squad

The inclusion of Arafat Sunny and Al-Amin Hossain was a surprise as they were sidelined by Bangladeshi selectors some time ago.

“We have picked Arafat as he is bowling quite consistently in the domestic arena. We already have Shakib [Al Hassan] but we need someone who has the experience of playing the shorter format,”

Minhajul Abedin, Chief Selector of BCB was quoted as telling Cricbuzz after the squad was released by the board.

Abedin added, “Al-Amin was picked as we have seen there is some grass on the Indian wickets. In the recent past, he had improved his fitness to quite an extent and he is one of the few bowlers who can bowl with the seam up and we have seen that pacers who are bowling with the seam up are quite successful in India.”

BCB has not included Taijul Islam, Sabbir Rahman, and Nazmul Hossain while it granted Soumya Sarkar a chance to come back in the shortest format as well.

“Actually we were not very keen to take Soumya. He was picked majorly at the insistence of the coach,” the chief selector revealed.

In India, Bangladesh is due to play a three-match T20I series, with the opener scheduled for November 3 in Delhi. The action moves to Rajkot on November 7 for Game 2 and finishes on November 10 in Nagpur with the third and final fixture.

After the three T20Is, the visitors will also play two-Test series, the squad for which is to be announced in due course.

Besides being an amateur travel blogger, I am an out-and-out cricket buff, breathing this game 24x7. I endlessly surf a channel in hope that I get some riveting action of this game
