Bangladesh add Shafiul Islam in ODI squad against Sri Lanka

Dubai [UAE]: Bangladesh added pacer Shafiul Islam in their squad on Wednesday for the upcoming three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.
According to chief selector Minhajul Abedin, the team management has taken this decision due to hot weather conditions in Sri Lanka.

“After the practice match yesterday, the team management felt we might need an additional pace bowler. The condition in Sri Lanka is really hot now,” ICC quoted Abedin as saying.

Shafiul played his last ODI in October 2016 against England. The 29-year-old has 63 wickets under his name in 56 games.
Earlier, Bangladesh announced their 14-member squad on July 16. The team will be led by opener Tamim Iqbal as the Mashrafe Mortaza ruled out due a hamstring injury.
