The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has encouraged pacer Mustafizur Rahman to play in all three formats during the West Indies tour in June.
Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations committee chairman Jalal Younus said to the media today [Saturday] that they have already informed Mustafiz about it and BCB is going to reveal the squad on Sunday.
"It is clear that we want him to play Tests, at least in the West Indies series. We made it clear to him. Let's see what he says. It will be clear by tomorrow [Sunday]," Jalal said.
Fizz, who is currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Delhi Capitals, is already contacted the selectors and it will be clear after giving the squad.
"Mustafiz wasn't interested (to play Tests). But we made it clear that he has to play in West Indies at least. We will be without two of our premium fast bowlers. His service will be very important to us," he added.
In June, the Tigers will play two Tests, three ODIs, and three T20Is in the West Indies. The first Test will be held on June 16 in Antigua, followed by the second on June 24 in Saint Lucia.
Bangladesh will go to the West Indies on June 6.
