Rookie Gazi is in squad

Dhaka: Bangladesh's selectors, on Thursday, included uncapped Sohag Gazi in their 14-member squad, hoping the off-spinner can get the best of left-handers in the West Indies team during next week's first Test.

The 21-year-old took 11 wickets in Bangladesh's ongoing first-class season earning him a call for the first of two Tests starting in Mirpur, from November 13. Also included in the squad is 20-year-old fast bowler Abul Hasan.

The squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Mohammed Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal, Junaid Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Shakib-al Hasan, Naeem Islam, Nazimuddin, Nasir Hossain, Elias Sunny, Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Abul Hasan, Sohag Gazi. (AFP)
