Bangladesh bring 3 new comers for last two T20s

Youngster Mosaddek Hossain, seamer-allrounder Muktar Ali and paceman Mohammad Shahid 
received their maiden call-ups in the Tigers' Twenty20 side Sunday when the Bangladesh Cricket Board announced the 14-man squad for the third and fourth T20 internationals against Zimbabwe.

Pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman, fellow pace bowler Al Amin Hossain and all-rounder Shuvagata Hom had to make way for the trio as the Bangladesh team management continued its recent trend of experimenting ahead of the Asia Cup T20 and the ICC World T20.
Keeping in mind the Tigers' busy schedule, the think tank decided to rest Mustafizur, along with Al Amin, who both shone in the first two T20Is against the Zimbabweans.
Shuvagata though was unable to shine in the first two matches and was eventually replaced in the squad by Mosaddek, who was rewarded for his recent run of form in the domestic circuit.
Alongside Mosaddek, Muktar also made his way into the squad courtesy his performances in domestic cricket of late. The Rajshahi cricketer continues his recent progress having proved his mettle while playing for the Bangladesh A side recently.
Shahid on the other hand must have seen his call-up coming after featuring for Sylhet Super Stars in the third edition of the Bangladesh Premier League T20.
Bangladesh will take on Zimbabwe in the third and fourth T20Is this Wednesday and Friday respectively at Khulna's Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium.
Hamstrung Mushfiq replaced by Taskin
Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed was also included in the squad in place of stumper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim, who incurred a hamstring injury during the second T20I against Zimbabwe Sunday.
National team physiotherapist Bayjedul Islam said, "Mushfiq has strained his right hamstring while batting. He will undergo a scan in Dhaka [today]. Usually it takes two-three weeks to recover from such an injury. However, we will be able to assess his condition better after receiving the scan report."
Mashrafe bin Mortaza (captain), Shakib al Hasan (vice-captain), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Mahmudullah, Arafat Sunny, Qazi Nurul Hasan, Mohammad Shahid, Abu Haider Rony, Mosaddek Hossain, Muktar Ali
