Musaddek Hossain Saikat named captain for third T20 international against Zimbabwe

Mahmudullah replaces injured Nurul Hasan Sohan.

Musaddek Hossain Saikat will lead Bangladesh in the series deciding third and final T20 international
against Zimbabwe on Tuesday. Musaddek was named captain for the match after skipper for the T20
series Nurul Hasan Sohan was ruled out for three weeks with an injury sustained in the second T20 which
Bangladesh won by seven wickets to level the series at 1-1. The 26-year-old Musaddek’s career best
figures of five for 20 in the match had been the stand out performance.

Meanwhile, experienced batsman Mahmudullah has been included in the squad for the third T20 as
replacement for Nurul Hasan. Mahmudullah is already in Zimbabwe as part of the Bangladesh ODI squad.
Nurul Hasan will fly out of Harare today to return home and continue his treatment and rehab for a
fractured left index finger.
