Taskin Ahmed has been named in Bangladesh's 15-member squad for the 2024 T20 World Cup despite his injury.

Taskin, who has also been named vice-captain, suffered a side strain during the recent series against Zimbabwe and will receive treatment for the next few weeks to get fit before the tournament starts next month.

Bangladesh will play their first match of the tournament against Sri Lanka on June 8 in Dallas.
