Bangladesh call in Shamim Hossain for ODI debut against England

Shamim has played 10 T20Is for Bangladesh but remains uncapped for ODIs.

According to an official, Bangladesh has added batsman Shamim Hossain to its squad for Friday’s second one-day international against England as injury cover for several players. The 22-year-old left-hander has played ten Twenty20 internationals for Bangladesh but has yet to play an ODI.

“We have some players carrying a few niggles. Shamim was added as their cover. Decision on playing him in the match will be taken later,” a spokesperson of the Bangladesh Cricket Board said.
