Dhaka: Bangladesh have named leading batsman Habibul Bashar as their new captain for the upcoming Zimbabwe tour. Bashar, 31, replaces Khaled Mahmud, who is not even in the squad for the 2 Tests in February. However, the all-rounder is likely to play in the 5 ODIs which follows. The 16-man squad also includes uncapped spinner Manjurul Islam Rana, while batsman Shariar Hossain gets a recall 3 yrs after his only Test appearance.
