Bangladesh call-up Shafiul Islam to replace exiled Al-Amin Hossain

Bangladesh on Monday were granted permission to call-up Shafiul Islam to replace fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain who was kicked out of the World Cup squad for breaking a curfew.

The 25-year-old Shafiul has played 52 ODIs in which he has scored 124 runs and taken 58 wickets. 

His last ODI in Bangladesh colours was against Zimbabwe in Dhaka in November 2014.

Al-Amin, 25, was booted out of the tournament for returning to the team hotel in Brisbane after the 10pm deadline.

Bangladesh are due to take on Sri Lanka at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Thursday.
