Bangladesh have dropped all-rounder Nasir Hossain for the upcoming five-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, which gets underway on November 21 in Chittagong.

Instead, they have included uncapped leg-spinner Jubair Hossain and all-rounder Sabbir Rahman for the first two ODIs.

The national selectors have also handed another lifeline to left-arm spinner Arafat Sunny.

Meanwhile, this will be Mashrafe Mortaza’s first assignment as ODI captain after the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) decided to split the captaincy.

Bangladesh ODI squad: Masrafe Mortaza (capt), Shakib Al Hasan (vice-capt), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah, Shabbir Rahman, Imrul Kayes, Al-Amin Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Arafat Sunny, Jubair Hossain
