Dhaka: The 15-man squad named by Bangladesh features an experienced core with plenty of young players as well.

Shakib Al Hasan, who has had injury issues and had to even pull out from the recent tour of New Zealand, is back in the squad as deputy to Mashrafe Mortaza. The squad also features Mosaddek Hossain, a batting all-rounder, and the uncapped Abu Jayed.

Jayed has been a regular fixture in Tests for Bangladesh but is yet to wear an ODI cap. His inclusion has come at the expense of Taskin Ahmed, who was ruled out of the New Zealand tour with an ankle injury.

With Shakib back, Bangladesh will be pleased to have their senior core of him, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mashrafe Mortaza intact. Mahmudullah too carries a wealth of experience with him.

Squad for World Cup:
Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan (vice-captain), Mohammad Mithun, Sabbir Rahaman, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed

There are plenty of young players as well. Liton Das, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Soumya Sarkar and Jayed are all aged 25 or younger.

In addition to the 15 that are set to play in the World Cup, uncapped players Nayeem Hasan and Yasir Ali have also been named in the squad that will travel to Ireland for the tri-series. The former was in the ODI squad during the New Zealand tour but didn't play a game.

Squad for Ireland tri-series:
Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Nayeem Hasan, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan (vice-captain), Mohammad Mithun, Sabbir Rahaman, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Yasir Ali and Abu Jayed
