Mosaddek Hossain Saikat will lead Bangladesh in the series-deciding third and final T20I against Zimbabwe on Tuesday.

Mosaddek was named captain for the match after skipper for the T20 series Nurul Hasan Sohan was ruled out for three weeks with an injury sustained in the second T20 which Bangladesh won by seven wickets to level the series at 1-1.

The 26-year-old Mosaddek became the first off-spinner from Bangladesh to bag a fifer in T20Is yesterday [Sunday].

Meanwhile, experienced batter Mahmudullah has been included in the squad for the third T20 as replacement for Sohan.

Regular T20I captain Mahmudullah along with Mushfiqur Rahim had made the headlines after the national selection panel had decided to rest them from ongoing tour. 

Mahmudullah is already in Zimbabwe as part of the Bangladesh ODI squad.

Nurul Hasan will fly out of Harare today to return home and continue his treatment and rehab for a fractured left index finger.
