Bangladesh Revealed their Squad for ODI World Cup 2023

Bangladesh have finalized their 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC men's ODI cricket World Cup 2023 in India, with veteran batsman Virat Kohli missing out. Newly-named Captain Shakib Al Hasan will continue to lead the side, while Najmul Hossain Shanto is going to be the vice captain of the team. However, the big news remains the exclusion of Tamim Iqbal, who had reversed his ODI retirement earlier in the year.
Tamim had announced his decision to step down as the captain of the Bangladesh ODI team after a back injury had ruled him out of the Asia Cup 2023. However, he regained fitness before the World Cup but is no longer a part of the squad for the tournament.
Furthermore, fast bowler Ebadot Hossain has failed to recover in time for the World Cup. He had sustained a knee injury during the ODI series against Afghanistan in July and underwent knee surgery on August 30.
Bangladesh World Cup squad: Shakib Al Hasan (c), Litton Das, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Najmul Hossain Shanto (vc), Tawhid Hridoy, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib
