Bangladesh call-up Shadman Islam for Windies Tests

Bangladesh selectors included uncapped opening batsman Shadman Islam for the first Test against the West Indies starting later this week.

The left-hander was rewarded for a strong showing with the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI in a two-day match against the visitors that had ended in a draw.

Shadman struck 73 off 169 balls with 10 fours, sharing 126 run stand with opening partner Soumya Sarkar.

He accumulated 648 runs at an average of 64.80 in the domestic first-class National Cricket League and represented the Bangladesh Under 19 team.

The first match of the Test series starts in Chittagong on Thursday.

The West Indies will also play three ODIs and three Twenty20 matches during their month-long tour.
