Uncapped Mehedi Hasan Added To Bangladesh’s ODI Squad For Sri Lanka Series
Mehedi Hasan has been added to Bangladesh’s squad for the upcoming One-Day International (ODI) series against Sri Lanka. His inclusion means the squad now has 17 players.
The 19-year-old spinner, who shot to limelight after taking 19 wickets in two Tests in his debut series against England last year, was a part of Bangladesh’s Test squad in the recently concluded Test series, where he was his team’s highest wicket-taker with 10 scalps. However, he traveled back to Dhaka from Colombo with the other Test players as he was not in the 16-man ODI squad that was announced earlier. He’ll now join the team in Colombo on Thursday.
Mehedi Hasan was initially selected in the Bangladesh U-23 squad for the upcoming ACC Emerging Cup, but has now been replaced by U-19 spinner Naeem Hasan.
He has played seven Tests so far, taking 35 wickets at an average of 31.80.
Meanwhile, a confident Bangladesh side will look to do well in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. The visitors are high on confidence after registering a historic Test victory against their fancied opponents to level the two-match series and will be keen to replicate the same performance when the ODI series gets underway.
The first match of the series will be played on Saturday (March 25) in Dambulla.
Bangladesh ODI Squad:
Tamim Iqbal Khan, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Subashis Roy, Sanjamul Islam, Shuvagata Hom, Nurul Hasan and Mehedi Hasan Miraz.
