Injured pacer Mashrafe Mortaza was on Tuesday left out of the 14-member Bangladesh squad for the two-match Test series against India starting from January 17 in Chittagong.

Syed Rasel, Naeem Islam, Aftab Ahmed and Abdur Razzak were the four players named for cricket tri-series but left out of the Test squad.

Shakib Al Hasan, who led the side in their Test series victory in the West Indies last year, has been retained as the captain while Mushfiqur Rahim will also remain the vice captain.

Mortaza was first named captain in the preliminary 24-member squad for the cricket tri-series but failed to figure in the final list as he failed to recover fully from a knee injury.

The second match of the Test series will be played here from January 24.

Bangladesh Test squad:

Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Mohammad Ashraful, Raqibul Hossain, Mohammad Mahmudullah, Shahriar Nafees, Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Enamul Hossain, Mahbubul Alam, Shafiul Islam.
