Shakib Al Hasan returns to Test and T20I squads for Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe


Young allrounder Shamim Hossain the only new face in multi-format touring party

Shakib Al Hasan has returned to Bangladesh’s Test and T20I squads, while Nurul Hasan’s hot recent form in the domestic circuit has won him spots in all three squads for the tour of Zimbabwe later this month. Only one brand-new face figures in the touring party, 20-year-old offspin-bowling allrounder Shamim Hossain, who has been named in the squad for the T20Is.

Shakib and Nurul are the only inclusions in the 17-man Test squad, named for the one-off Test in Harare from July 7. Nurul, Taijul Islam and Rubel Hossain have been included in the ODI side, although there was no place for Soumya Sarkar or Mahedi Hasan.
