2017 ICC Champions Trophy - Bangladesh announce 15-man squad

This year’s Champions Trophy gets under way on 1 June, and it’ll be the first time since 2006 that Bangladesh will have played in the event. The tournament is made up of two groups of four, with the Tigers set to kick off the competition against hosts England at The Oval. They’ll then play Australia, also at the Oval on 5 June, before finishing up against New Zealand in Cardiff on 9 June.

Bangladesh famously beat England in the group stages of the 2015 World Cup, perhaps their most impressive feat in the 50-over game. In last year’s Twenty20 World Cup, they had a golden chance to defeat hosts India, but spurned it. However, this still indicates that Bangladesh are making big strides at the elite level.
