The 2021 ICC World T20 is just over a month away, to be played at the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Meanwhile, the sides are announcing their 15-member squads for the Twenty20 mega event, as Bangladesh has done the same on Thursday.

The side would be led by Mahmudullah, possessing most of its top players, excluding Tamim Iqbal, who opted to give a chance to a deserving youngster. While Taijul Islam and Mosaddek Hossain are a couple of big guns to miss out on, they have not been a regular Twenty20 International player of late for the side. Nonetheless, Rubel Hossain and Aminul Islam are on standby, reports ESPNCricinfo.

Bangladesh has failed to qualify for the tournament directly and would participate in the qualifiers to seal its place in the Super 12. It is placed in Group B of the same, alongside Scotland, Papua New Guinea and Oman.
