Bangladesh have called up pace bowler Shafiul Islam as a replacement for fellow seamer Al-Amin Hossain.

Hossain was sent home from the World Cup for breaching team curfew on February 19 in Brisbane.

According to Bangladesh team manager Khaled Mahmud, the ACSU (Anti-Corruption and Security Unit) informed the national team that Hossain had stayed out past the 10pm curfew.

Despite the bizarre circumstances, the International Cricket Council (ICC) have allowed Islam to join the Bangladesh team.
