All-rounder Shakib Al-Hasan and fast bowler Rubel Hossain have been named in the Bangladesh team for the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea as replacements for off-spinner Shohag Gazi and paceman Al Amin Hossain. Paceman Masrafe Mortaza will lead Bangladesh.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board decided to replace Gazi and Al Amin, who have been reported for suspected illegal bowling action, as they will have to undergo biomechanical testing soon as per the procedure outlined by the International Cricket Council.
