Bangladesh has taken its time roaring as a force in world cricket, but its time has arrived, especially in spin-friendly conditions. They are a force to reckon with. This Asia Cup is a real chance for Bangladesh to further work on weaknesses before the World Cup. Below are the complete details of the Bangladesh Asia Cup squad, the schedule for 2023, and records.
Bangladesh Asia Cup Squad 2023
Shakib Al-Hassan has been appointed as their new captain as he experienced better, and former captain Tamim Iqbal is out nursing an injury after taking back his retirement. Shakib Al Hassan is one of the stalwarts of Bangladesh cricket and one of the genuine all-rounders in world cricket.
Bangladesh batting has been in safe hands as experienced batters like Mushfiqur, Shanto, and Litton Das are there to take the responsibility. Veteran Mahmudullah was overlooked again as young batters like Afif Hossain and Towhid are becoming a good fit in the ODI unit of Bangladesh.
Left-handed opening batter Tanzid Hasan Tamim got his maiden call-up, although he is just averaging under 30 in his List A career.
Tasking Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, and Mustafizur will lead the bowling unit, with Nasum Ahmed supporting Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the bowling department, who can also bat and has helped Bangladesh several times with the bat in recent years.
Bangladesh lost their pacer Ebadat Hossain due to injury just after he was named in the Bangladesh team for the Asia Cup. He has been replaced by Tanzim Hasan Saqib, who has 55 wickets in 37 games in his A career. This will be his first call-up for almost 21-year-old Tanzim, a right arm medium fast bowler.
