Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hasan have been drafted into the squad for the two Tests in South Africa. Tamim will lead the side in the preceding three-match ODI series with the tour kicking off on March 18 in Centurion. Shakib had earlier made himself unavailable for the Test series as he wanted to be part of the Indian Premier League. The allrounder however went unsold at the auction which cleared the path for him representing the country.

Test squad: Mominul Haque (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib al Hasan, Liton Das, Yasir Ali Chowdhury, Taijul Islam, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Jayed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Shohidul Islam, Syed Khaled Ahmed, Shadman Islam, Nurul Hasan.
