Bangladesh recall spinner Mosharraf for Afghan ODI

Dhaka—Bangladesh on Thursday recalled left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain for the crucial final one-day international against Afghanistan as they seek to clinch the series locked at 1-1.
Afghanistan pulled off a two-wicket victory against Bangladesh on Wednesday to level the series, after losing a thrilling opening match days earlier by seven runs.
Mosharraf, who played the last of his three three ODIs back in 2008, replaces pace bowler Rubel Hossain for the decider on Saturday in Dhaka.
“We have seen Afghanistan were struggling to play spin bowling in the first two matches. So we’ve decided to include Mosharraf for the third match,” said chief selector Minhajul Abedin.
Rubel, who returned to the side after a long injury lay-off, conceded 62 runs in nine overs for one wicket in the first match and was given just three overs in the second one.—AFP
