Habibul Bashar and Khaled Mashud are the major omissions from Bangladesh's 30-member provisional squad for the Twenty20 World Championship in September. The squad also includes 13 uncapped players from the A team and the recently created National Cricket Academy.

Bashar had relinquished the ODI captaincy after the recent series against India, and went through a lean patch with the bat, scoring 417 runs at an average of 21.94 during the 2006-07 season. Mashud lost his place to the uncapped Dhiman Ghosh, who joined Mushfiqur Rahim as the second wicketkeeper in the squad.

"We have included a number of young cricketers in the provisional squad, to give them a break if they can prove their worth," said Faruk Ahmed, the chief selector. The final 15-member squad will be selected by August 15.
