Uncapped left-arm spinner Taijul Islam and all-rounder Shuvagata Hom are set to make their debuts for Bangladesh in the upcoming Test series against the West Indies, which gets underway on September 5 in St Vincent.

It is also understood that Robiul Islam and Shafiul Islam will be added to the squad, but the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) have not made it official yet.

“As I had earlier informed Mashrafe [Mortaza] and Taskin [Ahmed] will not be playing the Test series,” chief selector Faruque Ahmed told the Dhaka Tribune. “They will be replaced by two other fast bowlers [Shafiul and Robiul]. Taijul has played recently in the West Indies with the Bangladesh A team where he took wickets. Shuvagata will add some strength in the middle-order.”
