Mashrafe Mortaza Injured pacer Mashrafe Mortaza was left out of the 14-member Bangladesh squad for the two-match Test series against India starting from January 17 in Chittagong.

Syed Rasel, Naeem Islam, Aftab Ahmed and Abdur Razzak were the four players named for cricket tri-series but left out of the Test squad.

The second match of the Test series will be played in Mirpur from January 24.
