Mortaza to face might of Aussies

Masrafe Mortaza will hope to rattle some Aussie batsmen
Pace bowler Mashrafe Mortaza has returned to fitness to make the Bangladesh Test squad for the two-match series against Australia.

The fast bowler played the last of his 18 previous Tests against England last year but has struggled with a persistent back problem ever since.

The home side announced their 14-man squad on the same day Australia arrived in Dhaka ahead of Sunday's first Test.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has not been given a place.

Australia are making their first tour of Bangladesh, but despite a number of injury concerns are expected to be far too tough for the Tigers.


Squad: Habibul Bashar (captain), Khaled Mashud, Javed Omar, Nafees Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Rajin Saleh, Alok Kapali, Shahriar Nafees, Mohammad Rafique, Mashrafe Mortaza, Syed Rasel, Enamul Haque Jr, Shahadat Hossain.
