Shakib, Tamim return for West Indies ODIs

Bangladesh on Sunday recalled Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan to a full-strength squad for the one-day international series against West Indies.

The pair missed Bangladesh’s last ODI series against Zimbabwe in October due to injury, but were deemed fit for the upcoming three-match ODI series against West Indies.

While Shakib returned for the Test series and captained Bangladesh in their wins in both Tests over West Indies, Tamim has not played since injuring his wrist during the Asia Cup opener against Sri Lanka in September. He was expected to return for the Test series but a rib injury delayed his comeback.

Selectors have also included Tamim in the squad for a warm-up match against West Indies scheduled on December 6.

Opening batsman Nazmul Hossain and all-rounder Fazle Mahmud made way for the returning duo.

The three-match ODI series will be held from December 9 to 14 in Dhaka and Sylhet.
