Saifuddin, Afif back with Zimbabwe series camp

Bangladesh will face Zimbabwe in a five-match T20 series at home. Ahead of the series, selectors of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) called 17 cricketers to a camp in Chattogram.

Pace-bowling all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin made a return after sustaining injuries for a long time. Earlier, he came back to the ground with Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). Besides, Afif  Hossain was kept in the preliminary squad.
However, left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman and veteran all-rounder went missing in the series camp but there is a high possibility for the two star players to be included in the team. Mustafiz is supposed to return to the country on May 1.

Meanwhile, top-order batter Parvez Hossain Emon and left-arm spinner Tanvir Islam were included in the camp while Taijul Islam, Naim Sheikh, and Anamul Haque Bijoy were dropped out.

The series will begin with the first match on May 3 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. Two more matches will also be held at the same venue on May 5 and 7. Both teams then departed for Dhaka to play the remaining two games on May 10 and 12 at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

Preliminary Squad: Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Liton Das, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah Riyad, Jaker Ali Anik, Shak Mahedi, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Parvez  Hossain Emon, Tanvir Islam, Afif Hossain, Hasan Mahmud, Mohammad Saifuddin, Soumya Sarkar.
