Shakib Al Hasan

After completing a one-year suspension, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan returned to Bangladesh's preliminary teams for the forthcoming home series against West Indies, but Mashrafe Mortaza, former captain, was left out of the ODI mix.

The 33-year-old Shakib Al Hasa was slapped with the ban last year for failing to disclose corrupt approaches, but was recalled on Monday in both the Test and ODI squads for the first international series of Bangladesh since March.

Bangladesh will play 3 ODI matches against West Indies beginning on 20th January, followed by 2 Test matches next month.

The omission of Mashrafe Mortaza occurs at a time when speculation is talk about the future of the longest-serving captain of Bangladesh.

Minhajul Abedin, chief selector commented that they respect Mashrafe, he has done a lot for the country. And he has spoken to Mashrafe in detail, so there is not going to be any misunderstanding, and it was a difficult decision but they need to consider the reality, and keep looking forward.
