Mahmudullah Riyad dropped from Bangladesh’s T20 World Cup squad


Mahmudullah Riyad, a former captain of Bangladesh’s cricket team, was removed on Wednesday, while batter Najmul Hossain was summoned back into the lineup for the upcoming World Cup in Australia.

The team’s 20-over struggles were emphasised by this month’s disastrous Asia Cup campaign, which saw Bangladesh eliminated in the group stage after losses to eventual champions Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.

Mahmudullah’s participation was questioned as he only scored 151 runs in eight matches in 2022.

The team’s T20 consultant, Indian cricketer Sridharan Sriram, who was hired last month, stated that it was time for the team to consider its future beyond the 36-year-old.
