Bangladesh called up batsman Mosaddek Hossain and uncapped fast bowler Abu Jayed for their World Cup 2019 squad. Jayed also got the nod in the 15-man squad as potential cover for pace spearhead Mustafizur Rahman, who is recovering from an ankle sprain, and Rubel Hossain who has a side strain. Jayed was the only uncapped player in what is an otherwise experienced squad for the tournament in England and Wales, starting on May 30.

Hossain, a middle order batsman who can bowl off-spin, last played for Bangladesh in the Asia Cup in September. He was not in the squad when they played Zimbabwe, West Indies and New Zealand across formats. Rookie seamer Abu Jayed earned a spot in Bangladesh’s World Cup squad while batsman Mosaddek Hossain also made the cut in their 15-man squad for the showpiece tournament.
