Bangladesh

Teenage leg-spinner Jubair Hossain is in line to make his ODI debut after being named in the squad to face Zimbabwe, while Arafat Sunny has been recalled for the first two of the five-match series.

Jubair made his Test debut against Zimbabwe in the series this month, and has been rewarded with a call to the ODI side after taking a five-fer in the third Test. Sunny, meanwhile, returns as a replacement for banned Sohag Gazi.

Mashrafe Mortaza will skipper the side after Mushfiqur Rahim was asked to keep wicket only, while Shakib-al-Hasan, recently returned from disciplinary action to excellent results, is vice-captain.

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
