Bangladesh have called up opening batsman Rony Talukdar to their one-day squad for the three-match series against Ireland starting on Saturday in Sylhet.
Rony, 32, has never played a 50-over game for Bangladesh and comes in after a training injury ruled out Zakir Hasan.
Team physio Bayjedul Islam said that Zakir’s thumb had suffered a minor fracture and would take around two weeks to heal.
Rony was part of the Twenty20 squad that thrashed England 3-0 in the recent series, scoring 54 runs across all three matches.
Ireland and Bangladesh will play three ODIs, three Twenty20 internationals and a Test.
All three ODIs will be played in Sylhet with the remaining matches on March 20 and 23.
