Bangladesh ODI Team Squad for New Zealand Series 2017 Selected Players List. Bangladesh tour of New Zealand series teams squads players lists. Mustafizur returns to Bangladesh ODI squad team.Mustafizur Rahman is among five entrants to Bangladesh’s 15-member ODI squad for the first game against New Zealand in Christchurch on December 26. Fast bowler Rubel Hossain has also returned, while Mehedi Hasan, Tanveer Haider and Subashis Roy have earned maiden call-ups. Nasir Hossain, Shafiul Islam (hamstring injury), Al-Amin Hossain and Taijul Islam have been left out.
Mustafizur’s last international appearance was at the World T20 in March 2016, before a shoulder injury in July sidelined him from all competitive cricket since. He underwent surgery in August, and was part of Bangladesh’s training squad in Australia earlier this month. Rubel had been dropped during the ODI series against Afghanistan in September due to a lack of fitness. He was included in the training squad as Mohammad Shahid’s replacement.
Tanveer – who is predominantly a batsman but has been picked as a legspinning allrounder – impressed coaches in the training camp in Sydney, while Subashis will be expected to extract pace and bounce from pitches in New Zealand. This is also the first ODI call-up for Mehedi, who made a dream debut during the Test series against England in October, taking 19 wickets in two Tests. Chief selector Minhazul Abedin said that the focus was on keeping the base group intact while pushing players with potential up to the international level.
