All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was part of the roster of Bangladesh on Saturday for the upcoming two-game test series against the West Indies. In a tweet shared by ICC, the full 18-man squad is mentioned and the team would be led by Mominul Haque. Shakib had previously suffered a groin injury during the third ODI against the West Indies and there was an injury cloud over his participation in the two-game test series. The first test will start on February 3 in Chattogram, while the second will take place in Dhaka from February 11.


Earlier this month, Bangladesh beat the West Indies 3-0 in the three-game ODI series and Shakib put in a good performance contributing with both bat and ball.

In the three-game ODI-series, the all-rounder scored 112 runs and also took six wickets.


The upcoming two-match test series will be Bangladesh’s first assignment in its longest form since their home win against Zimbabwe in February 2020.

Bangladesh squad for tests against Windies: Mominul Haque (c), Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Md Mithun, Liton Das, Yasir Ali, Saif Hassan, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Taijul Islam, Shadman Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Zayed, Ebadat Hossain, Hasan Mahmud.
