The selection of M Mithun is a big surprise and his inclusion means that the team Bangladesh has now 3 wicket keeper batsman in their side with the likes of M Rahim, N Hasan and now M Mithun. Although, it is very much clear that the position of wicket-keeper will be taken by Nurul Hasan and M Rahim will be in the side as a specialist batsman and Mithun will be in the team as a backup or a specialist batsman.
Mithun was last seen in the side in 2014 in a game against West Indies. However, the game could not be completed due to bad weather. But his 2 half centuries in practise games against Zimbabwe helped his selection.
Bangladesh team had made a lot of experiments with their side in the series against Zimbabwe as they were not sure that which line up would be perfect for them in the major tournament.
The team will initially play the preliminary round and if they surpass it, only then they will qualify for the main group stage.
