Bangladesh's surprise pick Abu Jayed has said his swing bowling could be just what his side needs to make an impact at the World Cup.
The 25-year-old, who is yet to play an ODI, admitted he wasn't expecting to be included in the World Cup squad.
"I was hoping to be among the 20 probables because I played really well in two matches here in the Premier League," Jayed told media.
"But when I heard that I was included in the squad, it came as a real surprise," he added.
"Bowling in these countries is ideal for me because I can swing the ball there. Since swing is my main weapon, I am really hopeful of doing well," Jayed said.
Jayed has played five Test matches and four T20Is.
"I have been playing for 10 years and during this time I had the opportunity to play a lot of cricket at different levels. So I don't think it [no ODI experience] will be a big problem," he said.
Jayed seems to be cover for injury-prone pace spearhead Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain, who has a side strain.
