The T20 skipper was ignored from the Test arena for over 12 months. He had last played against Pakistan in February 2020. Fitness was the prime reason behind his axe, back then he could not bowl. He has resumed his bowling and took 17 wickets in 16 matches in the ongoing Dhaka Premier League (DPL), which led to his selection. As a result, Bangladesh’s Test squad has increased to 18 members.

According to BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan, Mahmudullah has been added as a reserve to cover a senior-batsmen. This is because Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Taskin Ahmed are out of Dhaka Premier League due to injuries but expected to be fit for the upcoming series.

“Look Tamim and Mushfiqur have injuries so we have included Mahmudullah as he is a senior member and we don’t want to take any risk,” Akram Khan said as quoted by Cricbuzz.

”As he is bowling, naturally it was also considered behind his inclusion,” he added.
