The pace bowler, Tapash Baisya, has been drafted into the Bangladesh squad for the third and final one-day international against Sri Lanka at Chittagong, as they bid as they bid for a rare series victory on Saturday.
Bangladesh levelled the three-match series 1-1 with a four-wicket victory in Bogra on Wednesday, which was only their 11th win in 117 one-day internationals.
Baisya, 23, has played in 51 one-day internationals, taking 56 wickets at an average of 39.71, but he has not featured since Bangladesh's last series against Sri Lanka, in September 2005.
But he has been named in the squad as a replacement for the allrounder and former captain, Khaled Mahmud, who quit international cricket after top-scoring in defeat in the first one-dayer at Bogra on Monday.
Bangladesh squad Habibul Bashar (captain), Khaled Mashud, Javed Omar, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Rajin Saleh, Alok Kapali, Shahriar Nafees, Mohammad Rafique, Mashrafe Mortaza, Manjural Islam, Nazmul Hossain, Abdur Razzak, Syed Rasel, Tapash Baisya.
