Mahmudullah, who missed the Twenty20 against West Indies on Tuesday with a viral fever, has not been named in Bangladesh's 15-man squad for the three-match ODI series that follows. He will join the squad during the course of the series though, a Bangladesh Cricket Board release stated, if he recovers from his illness.

Apart from vice-captain Mahmudullah, the only other omission from the Twenty20 squad is Elias Sunny, an allrounder who had impressed with his left-arm spin in the recent Bangladesh Board Cup. Instead, left-arm spinner Suhrawadi Shuvo, batsman Shahriar Nafees and allrounder Shuvagoto Hom have been brought in. The board had earlier said that fast bowler Shahadat Hossain was being considered for the one-day series, but he did not make the cut.

The first ODI of the three-match series is on October 13 in Dhaka.

Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib Al Hasan, Alok Kapali, Naeem Islam, Nasir Hossain, Abdur Razzak, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Nazmul Hossain, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Shahriar Nafees, Shuvagoto Hom.

Ashraful should be given more opportunities as he is on the way of his return. He has terrific talent, but I still doubt for Alok Kapali. He batted irresponsibly in the T20i which was not expected. When he was there, he saw how Ashraful was bringing up runs, which Kapali could have done too. But above all, I believe Mushfiq played the best, he started off slowly, with a strike rate of 100 and hits a six in the 13th delivery. Thats how you play, gain confidence first and make the opposition feel that you are likely to stick around so they will try newer things and eventually end up doing mistakes and thats when you slog one above the boundary.

Very important player for Ban, who's presence in the middle order will be badly missed, I feel Ban might do well under Mushfiqur in this series .......nice to see my Ban favorite Alok Kapali is in the squad, he was missing from the team for some reason ????? Good Luck new skipper !!!!!!

I am confused...!!! Is Bangladesh declared a 15 man squad or 16 man squad? Cricinfo is showing Nasir Hossain is included in squad in one place but not showing in other area. Is he included or not? If not where is Nasir Hossain after being in the part of crucial partnership with Mushfiq in the T20 win? If selector were needed to choose between Shuvogoto Hom and Nasir Hossain, I think Nasir Hossain has shown more maturity than Shuvogoto Hom.

Congrats. Mushi. For the first time he single handed became a match winner. Missed out against Zim with the century 3rd match. I just hope people don't go crazy against him when he drops few crucial catches.

Devolope Nasir Hossain and Shuvogoto Hom's career instead of playing Alok Kapali for experience. When will you learn SELECTORS ???

It's sad but hope he will recover very soon. And Please leave ALOK KAPALI from squad. Let a youngter come in place of him. Build up players like Nasir Hossain and Shuvogoto Hom for the future. Hello BCB will u listen to me!!!!!
