Bangladesh have included pace bowler Rubel Hossain in their squad for the upcoming one-off Test against India on June 10.

Hossain returns after being ruled out of the second Test against Pakistan in May with a Grade 1 left side strain, which he sustained in the first Test.

Meanwhile, fellow pace bowler Shahadat Hossain will be unavailable for the series as he has been sidelined for six months after twisting his right knee just two balls into the second Test against Pakistan.

According to reports, captain Mushfiqur Rahim will not don the wicketkeeping gloves for the one-off Test as he is still recovering from a sprained finger, which he suffered during the first Test against Pakistan.

Bangladesh Test Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Shuvagata Hom, Taijul Islam, Mohammad Shahid, Rubel Hossain, Jubair Hossain, Litton Das, Abul Hasan
