Mahmudullah to captain Bangladesh in the first T20I against Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh T20 captain Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of Thursday’s first match of the T20I tri-series against Sri Lanka in Dhaka due to the finger injury he sustained during the ODI series.
Mahmudullah will lead the side in Shakib’s absence. Uncapped left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam Apu has been called up to the squad to replace Shakib.
The two-match series will then move on to conclude in Sylhet on Sunday.
