Dhaka: Mashrafe Mortaza returns as captain of the Bangladesh ODI squad while two debutants will feature in their first two ODIs against Zimbabwe. Mohammad Naim and Afif Hossain have been included in the 15-man squad that was announced by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) on Sunday.
"It is great to have Mortaza back as his experience and leadership is vital to our one day cricket. Shaifuddin is also key to the team's balance," said BCB National Selection Panel chairman Minhajul Abedin.
BCB chief Nazmul Hossain had said earlier that the Zimbabwe series will be the last one to feature Mashrafe as captain of the Bangladesh ODI side. IANS
