Dhaka: Bangladesh have called up batsman Rajin Saleh to join the injury-hit national squad in New Zealand, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said on Wednesday.
Saleh was named as a backup for injured middle-order batsman Tushar Imran, who will face a final fitness Test on Dec. 28 after he sat out a warmup match in Hamilton on Tuesday with a sore left shoulder.
Pace bowler Syed Rasel was ruled out of the tour on Monday, a day after he injured his collar bone while fielding in the one-day match. He has been replaced by uncapped left-arm paceman Sajidul Islam.
Bangladesh play the first of three one-day matches against New Zealand on Dec 26. They will also play two Tests next month.
