Bangladesh on Friday, 19 February named the uncapped left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed in their 20-man squad for their limited-overs series in New Zealand.
Bangladesh are set to play three Cricket World Cup Super League ODIs and as many T20Is against New Zealand in March, and there were recalls for Mohammad Naim, the opener, middle-order batsman Mosaddek Hossain and pacer Al-Amin Hossain.
However, the left-arm spinner Taijul Islam missed out. Also missing was the ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan – he suffered a thigh injury during the first Test against West Indies – with reports in Bangladesh suggesting BCB had granted him paternity leave.
The team will leave Bangladesh on 23 February.
Squad: Tamim Iqbal (c), Mosaddek Hossain, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Taskin Ahmed, Al-Amin Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Hasan Mahmud, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Rubel Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Nasum Ahmed.
