The three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will begin on March 1. The three ODIs in the series will be held on March 1, 3 and 6. All three matches will be held in Sylhet.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced a 15 players squad for the first two matches. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza will lead the three matches.
Left-handed opener Mohammad Naeem and all-rounder Afif Hossain have been named in the ODI squad for the first two matches of this series.
Minhajul Abedin said: “It is great to have Mortaza back as his experience and leadership is vital to our one day cricket. Shaif Uddin is also key to the team’s balance.”
He added, “We had to make certain adjustments in the last ODI series we had played in as a number of cricketers were unavailable due to various reasons but I am happy that we now have a fit pool of players to select from.”
