Bangladesh have named two new caps in a 15-man squad for their maiden tour of the Caribbean in May and June.

Faisal Hossain and Abdur Razzaq, both batsmen who bowl part-time offspin, have been called up in place of Al-Sahariar Rokon and Manjural Islam, who toured Zimbabwe in February but were unable to make an impression.

The tour party leaves Dhaka on May 6, with the first of three one-day internationals beginning in St Vincent on May 15. The tour concludes with two Tests in St Lucia and Jamaica from May 28.
