Nasum Ahmed, a left-arm spinner, has been recruited by Bangladesh for the second Test match against India at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Shoriful Islam and pace bowler Ebadot Hossain will both miss the Test owing to injuries to their hamstrings and backs, respectively.
The second Test between Bangladesh and India is scheduled to take place in Dhaka on Thursday, and the team has been released. Nasum Ahmed has been included for the series last game, and he may receive the chance to play in the starting XI. Nasum has participated in 32 limited-overs matches but not in the longest format.
The young left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed has been added to Bangladeshs Test team ahead of their forthcoming second and final Test against India, which will begin on December 22 in Dhaka.
Nasum has competed on behalf of Bangladesh in ODI and T20I games. He has so far participated in 83 T20 games, 61 List A games, 4 ODIs, and 28 T20Is. He has collected 105 first-class wickets at an average of 30.25, 32 T20I wickets at a 20.03, five ODI wickets at a 25.60, 80 List A wickets at a 27.28, and 71 T20 wickets at a 25.23. His top bowling stats in List-A cricket are 5/49, 4/10, and 7/43 in First-class cricket.
Nasmums selection for the Test team is a significant turning point in his cricket career, and he will undoubtedly be anxious to make a memorable debut.Due to their individual ailments, Bangladesh decided not to field fast bowlers Ebadot Hossain and Shoriful Islam for this game.
As a replacement for Shakib Al Hasan in the next Test match, Nasum Ahmed has been called up. Shakib will likely be restricted to batting only owing to an injury he got from a bouncer thrown by Umran Malik during the ODI series.
