Rubel returns for India Test
03 June 2015, Nirapad News: Fast bowler Rubel Hossain has replaced the injured Shahadat Hossain for the only Test against India, beginning on June 10 in Fatullah. It is the only change in the Bangladesh squad that was named for the home Test series against Pakistan in April and May.
Rubel experienced discomfort while bowling during the first Test against Pakistan before he was subsequently ruled out of the Mirpur Test with a Grade 1 left side-strain. Shahadat, Rubel’s replacement, had twisted his right knee during the second Test and bowled only two balls in the match. He will be out of action for six months.
There is also speculation that Mushfiqur Rahim, who sprained his finger during the first Test against Pakistan, may not keep wickets against India. Bangladesh drew the first Test against Pakistan before suffering a 328-run defeat in Mirpur.
Bangladesh Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Shuvagata Hom, Taijul Islam, Mohammad Shahid, Rubel Hossain, Jubair Hossain, Litton Das, Abul Hasan.
