Bangladesh have announced the 15-member squad for the ICC World T20 Tournament in the Caribbean in November. The squad is near-identical which played the recently concluded home series against Pakistan.

Murshida Khatun, who played only one T20I against South Africa earlier this year, has been selected in the World T20 squad. She was the part of the squad during Pakistan series but didn't get the chance to play. Whereas Sharmin Sultana and Suraiya Azmin found themselves out of the squad. They have been listed as the reserve players.

Along with Sultana and Azmin, Shaila Sharmin and Sultana Khatun too have been listed in the standby players. Salma Khatun will lead the 15-member squad.

Though Bangladesh had not-so-good campaign against Pakistan as they lost the T20I series but bounced back in the ODI and won the game convincingly. Khadija Tul Kubra made history by taking six wickets by giving only 20 runs. Her outstanding performance helped her retain the place in the squad.

The team is currently high on confidence after winning the ODI. Head Coach Anju Jain told  Women's CricZone, "Though it was a bit disappointing losing the T20 series, I am glad the way the girls have bounced back in the ODI. It was a good team effort."

She further added, "This series was a preparatory series before the World Cup. Girls have been working really hard on their game and it's just a matter of time that they will be back in the winning wheels."

Bangladesh will start their campaign against defending champions West Indies on November 9 at Providence Stadium, Guyana.
