Mahmudullah to captain Bangladesh

Bangladesh Twenty20 captain Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of Thursday’s first match of the Rocket T20 Series at Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium, Mirpur as he has not sufficiently recovered from a finger injury sustained during the ODI series. Mahmudullah will lead the side in Shakib’s absence. Uncapped left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam Apu has been called up to the squad to replace Shakib.
