Mosaddek will also be a potential replacement for Mahmudullah, who is now recovering from a right shoulder injury.

It was the only competitive game for Shakib since returning from an injury he picked up during the Bangladesh Premier League final in January.

Mosaddek played a key role in Bangladesh's win over New Zealand at the 2017 Champions Trophy, when he picked up three vital wickets. "His bowling can be effective in English conditions", chief selector Minhajul Abedin told reporters in Mirpur after naming the 15-member squad led by all-rounder Mashrafe Mortaza.

Just like other teams, there are many obvious selections like for Bangladesh also.

"I got appreciated for my ability to swing the ball even by some of the leading batsmen in New Zealand, who believed that if I can work on it I have a good chance of turning into a good bowler".

SOFIA detects the first type of molecule ever formed in the universe
Helium atoms combined with these protons into the helium hydride ion HeH+, the universe's first molecular bond. Physicists believe that this molecule's formation helped the young universe cool down, allowing stars to form.

Mosaddek last played for Bangladesh at the Asia Cup last September, where he scored 39 runs in three matches at an average of 19.50 and took one wicket at an average of 26.

"Mosaddek did well in domestic tournaments".

Several senior members have been retained, including Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza and Mahmudullah. On Jayed's surprise selection, he said: "He can swing the ball and we felt that can add value to our bowling attack".

Bangladesh will start its preparations on April 22 and the team is expected to leave for Britain in the first week of May. Bangladesh will open their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 2.

Bangladesh also named a 17-man squad for a tri-series in Ireland in early May, where uncapped spinner Nayeem Hasan and batsman Yasir Ali will join the World Cup players. The ace all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan who missed New Zealand series due to finger injury has been named in the 15 Men squad.
