Some senior Test cricket players are not able to join in the list of the squad due to the injuries.
Minhajul told ESPN Cricinfo as “We have taken two pace bowlers taking into account that Chittagong offers a flat pitch. We retained Shuvagata to tackle England’s left-handed batsmen. We also took [Mehedi Hasan] Miraz as a specialist offspinner as we believe he has much to offer since his performance at the U19 level.”
