4 picked for WI Tests

Sports Reporter

The national selectors have picked four players to join the team in the West Indies for the two-match Test series.

According sources close to the selection panel, left-arm spinner Taijul Islam is the fresh inclusion alongside Shuvagoto Hom -- who has so far played four ODIs since making his international debut in August 2011 -- and pacers Robiul Islam and Shafiul Islam.

The 22-year old Taijul, who is considered a good young prospect for the longer version and who recently visited the Caribbean with the Bangladesh A team, is likely to fly for the West Indies on August 24 so that he can be available for the only T20I on August 27. The rest will fly out on August 27.

The selectors are yet undecided about who will return home after the limited-overs series but if they stick to their initial plans, it is all but confirmed that Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Taskin Ahmed and Abdur Razzak will return along with Mohammad Mithun.

The Tigers will play a three-day practice match from August 30 at St. Kitts before the two-match Test series to be held at St. Vincent (September 5-9) and St. Lucia (September 13-17).
