Pace bowlers Khaled Ahmed and Shohidul Islam have been included in the Bangladesh squad for the first Test against Pakistan which starts tomorrow in Chattogram.
“We have a few injury concerns with the pacers. Taskin (Ahmed) and Shoriful (Islam) are not available for this Test and we needed cover for the other seamers. Khaled and Shohidul are both fit and ready.” said Minhajul Abedin Nannu.
