Allrounder Salma Khatun has returned to the Bangladesh Women's squad for next month's Asia Cup in Thailand after recovering from a shoulder injury. Salma was forced out of the team's tour of Ireland last month after suffering the injury during a training session in August.

The 15-member squad also includes batsman Sharmin Sultana and Sobhana Mostari. Sanjida Islam and Lata Mondol, who were part of the squad for Ireland, have been left out of the main squad but are on the standby list.

The Asia Cup will be the first assignment for the team's new coach David Capel, who was appointed earlier this month on a four-month contract. The tournament is scheduled to start from November 27, and also includes India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and hosts Thailand.

Bangladesh lost the T20 series in Ireland 0-1 but clinched the ODI series with a win in the third match, after the first two games were abandoned due to rain.
