Litton has been ruled out of the 2023 Asia Cup after he was unable to recover from a viral fever. He did not travel to Sri Lanka for Bangladesh’s opening match in Pallekele. “The National Selection Panel of BCB has named 30-year-old fellow right-hander Anamul Haque Bijoy as Litton’s replacement,” the Bangladesh Cricket Board said in an official statement.

Anamul Haque has played 44 ODIs and has scored 1254 runs which include three hundreds. His last ODI appearance for Bangladesh was in December last year against India. He is due to arrive in Sri Lanka to join the Bangladesh team later on Wednesday.

The Chairman of the National Selection Panel, Minhajul Abedin, commented on replacing Das with a like-to-like replacement: “He (Anamul) has been among the runs in domestic cricket and we have continued to monitor him in the Bangladesh Tigers program. He was always in our consideration.”

“Due to Litton’s unavailability, we needed a top-order batter who could keep wicket and Anamul got the nod,” the BCB said.  Bangladesh will begin their Asia Cup campaign against tournament co-hosts Sri Lanka on Thursday in Pallekele, Kandy.
