Dhaka: Pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman will not be a part of the Bangladesh squad for the one-off Test against India in Hyderabad from February 9-13 as he has not had enough game time post his surgery.

The left-arm fast bowler was replaced by Shafiul Islam in the 15-member team to be led by Mushfiqur Rahim, who has also recovered from a head injury he suffered during the New Zealand Test series.

The speedster enjoys a lot of popularity in Hyderabad having played a major role in Sunrisers Hyderabad's Indian Premier League triumph last year.

"Although he (Mustafizur) doesn't have any problem medically, he still needs to work on his skill fitness," chairman of selectors Minhajul Abedin said at a media press conference with national coach Chandika Hathurusingha by his side, on Wednesday. Mustafizur was not picked since he would be needed more when Bangladesh take on Sri Lanka in a full series.

Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah Riyad, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Mominul Haque, Sabbir Rahman, Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Subashis Roy, Taijul Islam, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Shafiul Islam.
