With Shakib Al Hasan set to miss out on the second Test against West Indies in Dhaka due to a left thigh strain, Soumya Sarkar has been named as his replacement.
Although the decision to add a replacement for Shakib was not on the cards initially, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has had a change of plan and confirmed the addition of Soumya to the media on Tuesday.
The left-handed top-order batsman is expected to be part of the starting XI for the second Test which starts from February 11.
Soumya was part of the ODI team in the ODI series but only played in the XI for the third and final ODI, where he batted in an unfamiliar number six position.
That didn't help matters for the fluent stroke player as he was run out after scoring only seven runs.
This would see Soumya making a return to the Test whites after nearly 17 months, where he played his last Test against Afghanistan in Mirpur.
