Bangladesh call up uncapped Ebadot for New Zealand

Dhaka: Bangladesh on Tuesday added uncapped pace bowler Ebadot Hossain for this month's Test series against New Zealand, replacing the injured Taskin Ahmed.

For the three-match one-day international series that starts in Napier on February 13, Taskin will be replaced by the experienced Safiul Islam.

Taskin has been ruled out of the tour with a torn ligament after he was recalled into both the ODI and Test squads following an impressive show in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 tournament.

He was the competition's leading wicket-taker with 22 scalps until he was hit by injury on Friday.

Newly called-up Ebadot was a finding of a talent hunt programme in 2017. The 25-year-old has claimed 59 wickets in 19 first-class matches.

Bangladesh will play three ODIs and three Test matches in New Zealand between February 13 and March 20.

This will be Bangladesh's first Test series abroad in 12 years, after their 2007 three-Test series in Sri Lanka when they lost all three matches.
