Bangladesh on Saturday dropped pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman and recalled Rubel Hossain for the first Test.

Of the two-match series against Pakistan which begins in Rawalpindi next week.

Mustafizur was in the two-Test series against India in November.

His white-ball performances are not satisfactory,” said chief selector Minhajul Abedin.
