The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) announced in a press release on Sunday that Bangladesh batter Najmul Hossain Shanto will lead the Tigers in their third and final one-day international of the three-match series against New Zealand at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Tuesday. This comes after stand-in skipper Liton Das, who had been leading the team in the absence of regular captain Shakib Al Hasan, asked to be rested.
After losing by 86 runs in the second one-day international (ODI) after the first match in the series was called off due to weather, the Tigers are now down 1-0 in the series. They will also welcome a variety of standard beginning courses. After getting some break for the first two matches, key players like as Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam made their way back into the field.
Along with Liton, veteran Tamim Iqbal pleaded with the coaching staff to remove him from the lineup for the third and final match.
SQUAD: Mehedi Hassan Miraz, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Hasan Mahmud, Rishad Hossain, Najmul Hossain Shanto (Captain), Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Zakir Hasan, Anamul Haque Bijoy, Tawhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah Riyad, Mushfiqur Rahim
