Bangladesh Women have named four uncapped players in their 17-member squad for three T20Is and as many ODIs in New Zealand: Rabeya Khatun, Disha Biswas, Dilara Akhter, and Marufa Akter.

Disha is a seamer, Rabeya is a legspinner, Dilara is a wicketkeeper-batter, and Marufa Akter is a seamer.

Rabeya, Biswas, and Dilara were also members of the Under-19 team that defeated Malaysia at home recently. Disha took eight wickets against them, while Rabeya took six. Dilara scored 157 runs in four innings, including two fifties.

Meanwhile Shamima Sultana, Sobhana Mostary and Shohely Akhter were left out of the squad.

The T20Is will be played on December 2, 4 and 7, and the ODIs on December 11, 14 and 17. The ODI series will be Bangladesh's first assignment in the current cycle of the ICC Women's Championship.
