Haris Rauf and Shahnawaz Dhani have been dropped from the squad.
Chief selector of the national team Muhammad Waseem said that we have selected this squad in consultation with the team management and keeping in view the possible squads and conditions of the rival team.

He said that Imam-ul-Haq has replaced opener Imran Butt in these forms as Imran has scored only 17.8 runs in 10 Test innings at an average.
Muhammad Waseem said that Bangladesh is a strong team in its home conditions so we have to perform well there.
