In the first Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka, left-arm spinner Nazmul Hossain has been named in the squad instead of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. According to a press release from Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) this Tuesday,
The BCB announced the squad for the match against Sri Lanka on February 10. It is reported that Shakib is returning to the squad. But the next day, Shakib said that the knee injury due to his finger injury has not been correct yet. That's why he is not playing in T20 against Sri Lanka. Then the BCB announced the name of his changed player today. In the absence of Shakib in the T-Twenty series, Mahmudullah has been on the shoulders.
