A side strain has forced Muktar Ali out of Bangladesh's 15-member Asian Games men's team. He has been replaced by another allrounder Ziaur Rahman.

Muktar, a bowling allrounder, was the only uncapped player in the originally announced squad, and his withdrawal means that all players in the Bangladesh team have international experience.

The Bangladesh squad is already without Sohag Gazi and Al-Amin Hossain who were ruled out after being reported for their bowling actions. They were replaced by Shakib Al Hasan and Rubel Hossain.

Bangladesh play their first match, the fourth quarterfinal against the Group B runners-up, on October 1. The semi-finals and final will be held on October 2 and 3.

Bangladesh men's squad for Asian Games: Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Mithun, Shamsur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Arafat Sunny, Ziaur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed
