Bangladesh have recalled batsman Imran Kayes and pace bowler Rubel Hossain for the upcoming ODI series against the West Indies.

All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was not included in the squad due to his six-month ban and all-rounder Ziaur Rahman was dropped as he only scored two runs and failed to take any wickets in two ODIs he played against India last month.

Meanwhile, head coach Chandika Hathurusingha revealed that the national team will be working on their planning and technique when training resumes on August 2 due to Eid.

“The camp has been all about developing skill level which we did in the last few weeks,” Hathurusingha said. “We were focusing on basic skills, especially for the batters to improve and understand. They worked in their own game, finding out what they do best, watching videos and identifying areas to improve.

“Bowlers are also working on individual skills – stock ball, variations and stuff like that. We haven’t gone into the analysing part, so when we come back after Eid, we will probably work on specific game planning.”

Hathurusingha also admitted that Bangladesh are going to miss Al Hasan.

“Any team will miss player of that calibre,” he said. “What can we do? That is the reality we have to face. So we are looking forward.”
