Pacer Taskin Ahmed has been recalled to the Bangladesh Test and ODI squads for their upcoming tour of New Zealand, where they will play three Tests and as many one-day internationals.

All-rounder Sabbir Rahman, who had been serving a six-month ban by the Bangladesh Cricket Board, also returns to the ODI squad after his suspension was truncated by a month. Shakib Al Hasan will lead Bangladesh in Tests, while Mashrafe Mortaza will be at the helm in the ODIs. 

Uncapped right-arm spinner Nayeem Hasan has also been drafted into the ODI squad.
