Uncapped Rishad Hossain and Jaker Ali in Bangladesh squad for Ireland T20I sequence

The uncapped pair of Rishad Hossain and Jaker Ali have earned nationwide call-ups for the primary time, for Bangladesh’s T20I sequence in opposition to Ireland – the three-match sequence begins on March 27. Shoriful Islam has come again, making it three modifications from the facet that beat England 3-0 earlier this month. Afif Hossain, Tanvir Islam and Rejaur Rahman Raja have been unnoticed.

The inclusion of legspinner Rishad is essentially the most fascinating name. He has been across the senior setup for the previous few years however has hardly had any alternatives – even within the home circuit, like many legspinners within the nation. The final time he performed usually in a home event was almost two years in the past within the Dhaka Premier League T20s. This season, Rishad has solely bowled 5.1 overs within the first-class competitors.

It’s possible that Chandika Hathurusingha, the pinnacle coach, needed to take a look at him in aggressive cricket. During his first stint as Bangladesh coach, too, Hathurusingha had drafted in legspinner Jubair Hossain after seeing him bowl within the Bangladesh nets in 2014.
Jaker is an in-form batter, who scored three consecutive centuries within the Bangladesh Cricket League – he was the top-scorer within the event with 492 runs from six innings. He was additionally a part of Comilla Victorians’ BPL triumph this season.

Shoriful got here again rather than Rejaur, who hasn’t performed a global match regardless of being in a number of Bangladesh squads since late 2021.

Afif’s exclusion counts as a serious setback for the younger left-hand batter. His unbroken string of 61 T20I appearances ended when he was dropped for the third T20I in opposition to England, and until just lately a shoo-in for each white-ball codecs, Afif now finds himself on the sidelines.

The three T20Is might be performed in Chattogram on March 27, 29 and 31.
