Bangladesh have made three additions to their team touring West Indies, drafting in left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak, allrounder Naeem Islam and medium-fast bowler Syed Rasel, all standbys for the Test series, for the three-match ODI series which begins on July 26.
Razzak is the most experienced of the three, having played 81 ODIs and capturing 111 wickets at 27.90. He had been suspended from bowling in international cricket in December 2008 due to a suspect action, but the ruling was lifted in March. He, alongwith Naeem and Rasel, last represented Bangladesh in the ODI series against South Africa in November 2008.
The three players will join the Bangladesh team in Grenada on Monday.
