After the shocking performance against Sri Lanka on Thursday, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has added Imrul Kayes in the squad and named a 16-member Bangladesh squad for the final match of the series which is scheduled to be played on Saturday (27 January).
Imrul Kayes scored a century in the recently concluded third round of the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) that forced selectors to change their mind to add him in the squad. Anamul Haque’s poor form in the ongoing series is also another reason behind the inclusion of this left-hand batsman.
It is mentioned, Bangladesh won three matches out of four matches with bonus points which helped the Tigers to reach in the final of the series. Despite poor performance in the last game, Mashrafe and his co were outstanding throughout the series.
Mashrafe Mortaza, the skipper of Bangladesh is hopeful to make a strong comeback and do better in the final match. The final match will be held at the Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium as like the earlier matches. The day-night match is slated to begin at 12 pm Bangladesh standard time.
Bangladesh squad for final match: Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan (vice-captain), Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah Riyad, Sabbir Rahman, Anamul Haque, Nasir Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Rubel Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mohammad Mithun, Abul Hasan Raju and Sunzamul Islam.
