Shafiul Islam Ebadot Hossain replace injured Taskin Ahmed for New Zealand tour

The Bangladesh ODI squad will leave Dhaka in batches over the coming days, depending on the cricketers' appearances in the BPL. Islam replaces the injured Taskin Ahmed, who suffered an ankle injury in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League in the match between Sylhet Sixers and Chittagong Vikings. Ebadat played four matches for Sylhet Sixers and took five wickets.

Shafiul has not played an ODI since October 2016, and in two Tests and a T20 in the intervening period, he has taken only two wickets.

Bangladesh, on Tuesday, knocked Ebadot Hossain's door for this month's Test series against New Zealand.
