Fresh face Mohor Sheikh, who is only a first-class couple, was selected in the BCB XI that takes the Zimbabwean visitors in a warm -up match of a day at BKSP on Friday. The 21-year-old Rajshahi fast thrower is so unknown that the BCB initially announced his name as "Morshedul Akhter" in the press release, but head coach Minhajul Abedin later confirmed to ESPNcricinfo that it was a mistake.

Rajshahi this season, taking three windows against Rangpur. According to a teammate, the Sheikh showed a good pace, hitting around "130 km / h". However, he was not chosen for the second and third matches. Sheikh, who played for the Uttara Sporting Club in the Dhaka First Division Cricket League last season, is learning his trade at the Bangla Trac Academy under coach Khaled Mahmud, the former Bangladeshi captain and director of the BCB.
The BCB XI team also contains three other young fast bowlers, Yeasin Arafat, Ebadat Chowdhury and Saifuddin, and the only spin specialist in Nayeem Hasan. This marked a continuation that the BCB did not offer specialist left wing turns on the visiting sides in the tour games.
The administration of the Bangladesh team will also have a final look at the candidate for the test Mizanur Rahman and the uncovered Fazle Mahmud, who was chosen for the ODI series against Zimbabwe.
Mahmud is ready for his ODI debut in the first game against Zimbabwe on October 21, while Mizanur, who has already made two centuries of first class in the first two games of this season, will also treat this as an audition , as it is being discussed between national selectors and team management as a possible replacement for Tamim for the two Tests against Zimbabwe.
The match is also an opportunity for Ariful Haque and Mohammad Saifuddin, both in the ODI team, to show their usefulness, although coach Habibul Bashar has recently said that they are more focused on an off-road game, which means that Saifuddin is a more likely consideration.
