Left-arm quick Mustafizur Rahman is in contention to make his return to red-ball cricket after he was named in Bangladesh’s squad for next month’s tour of the Caribbean.
Mustafizur has not featured in Bangladesh's red-ball team since the home series against West Indies in February last year, but earns a recall to the five-day setup for the two-Test series against the Caribbean side next month.
Bangladesh will play West Indies in two Test matches as part of the World Test Championship (2021-2023), with the first Test commencing in Antigua on June 16.
All-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz is also part of the 16-player Test squad as he returns from a hand issue, while Mosaddek Hossain could play his first Test match since 2019 after he won a recall.
Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is included in the Test squad that will be captained by Mominul Haque, but veteran Mushfiqur Rahim will skip the tour to take part in a Hajj pilgrimage.
Bangladesh will also play some white-ball cricket after the completion of the second Test in St Lucia at the end of June, with the Tigers set to take on West Indies in three T20I and three ODIs during July.
Left-hand batter Tamim Iqbal was named as captain of the one-day squad, while experienced all-rounder Mahmudullah will skipper the T20 side during the final part of the six-week tour.
