Bangladesh’s upcoming home series will be an opportunity to experiment, said BCB president Nazmul Hasan. 

The Tigers will host Zimbabwe, starting this month, followed by the West Indies series in November-December this year, and the BCB boss informed that the time is right for the selection panel to experiment with the team with the 2019 World Cup fast approaching.

Nazmul’s statement was based on the team currently dealing with injuries, thus providing the opportunity to try out new players at their home ground. 

Bangladesh in the Zimbabwe series set to begin on October 21 will miss opener Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib al Hasan. Tamim is recovering from a fractured left index finger while Shakib is dealing with infection on his injured left little finger. 

Other key players like Mushfiqur Rahim and ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza are also carrying injuries. The duo will be fit for the Zimbabwe series but there is a discussion if they will be rested in a few matches, given the long schedule of international cricket ahead.

“There is no option but to play others in place of Tamim and Shakib. I will advise all experiments to take place in the upcoming series that we have. We cannot take the risk of experimenting in the World Cup and Asia Cup. So we might see some experiments in the upcoming home series that we have,” said BCB chief Nazmul to the media Tuesday.

Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe for a three-match ODI series, followed by a two-match Test series. The West Indies will visit the country in November to play two Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is.

The World Cup 2019 will be held in England and Wales, starting on May 30, with the final scheduled for Lord’s on July 14.
