Bangladesh on Saturday included batsman Mahmudullah Riyad in their Test squad for next month’s one-off series against Zimbabwe.
The only Test of the series against Zimbabwe will begin on 7 July at the Harare Sports Club.
Mahmudullah has been included as a back-up to Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, who have some injury concerns, said Bangladesh Cricket Board cricket operations chief Akram Khan.
Bangladesh will also play a three-match one-day international series and as many T20 internationals in Zimbabwe.
The three ODIs are part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
Mahmudullah, who is also a member of the ODI squad, will lead the team in the three-match T20 series.
The Bangladesh team will leave home on 29 June for their first series in Zimbabwe in more than eight years.Post published in: Cricket
