Bangladesh have been searching for a leg-spinner in shorter formats for quite a long time now. 

During the ongoing tri-nation T20I series, they had picked Mahedi Hasan but could not manage to give him game time. 

Another batsman-cum-legspinner Aminul Islam Biplob was included after two matches of the series and the all-rounder made his debut in their third match against Zimbabwe at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Wednesday.

The leggie could not have asked for a better first over in the international arena as he bagged a wicket in the third ball.

It was a tossed up delivery from Aminul in the seventh over of the innings and Tinotenda Mutombodzi tried to clear the boundary only to be caught at long-off by Nazmul Hossain Shanto. 

Aminul later also trapped Zimbabwe skipper Hamilton Masakadza in front in the ninth over of the innings and returned with bowling figure of 2/18 in his quota of four overs.
