Bangladesh Cricket Board has announced a 15-member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, including Taskin Ahmed.

The announcement was made on Tuesday afternoon at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur by Chief Selector Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lipu.

Saifuddin returned to the national team after an outstanding performance in the BPL. However, he couldn‍‍`t secure a leadership position, not even as the vice-captain. Even in the main team, he couldn‍‍`t hold onto his place for long. The all-rounder failed to meet the selectors‍‍` expectations against Zimbabwe.

Bangladesh‍‍`s World Cup Squad:

Nazmul Hossain Shanto (Captain), Taskin Ahmed (Vice-Captain), Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah Riyad, Jakir Ali, Tanvir Islam, Sheikh Mahadi Hasan, Rishad Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shariful Islam, Tanjim Sakib

Reserve: Afif Hossain Dhrubo and Hasan Mahmud.

On June 2, Bangladesh will kick off their World Cup campaign with a warm-up match against the United States and Canada, followed by their debut on the world stage on June 8. They will face Sri Lanka in that match. In the next match, Bangladesh will take on South Africa. In the group stage‍‍`s last two matches, they will play against the Netherlands and Nepal.

Prior to the World Cup, Bangladesh will depart for the United States on May 15. There, they will play three T20 matches against the USA on May 21, 23, and 25.
