As a result, Ebadot had to bid farewell to his Asia Cup aspirations.

Enter Tanzim Hasan Sakib: The Young Gun

In the midst of adversity, cricket often unveils fresh talent. The BCB National Selection Panel recognized this opportunity and introduced 20-year-old Tanzim Hasan Sakib as Ebadot's replacement. Sakib, despite being uncapped, comes with a formidable cricketing pedigree. 

He was a vital part of Bangladesh's triumphant squad in the ICC U19 Men's Cricket World Cup 2020. His recent exploits in the ACC Emerging Men’s Asia Cup, where he bagged nine wickets in just three games, demonstrate his readiness for the big stage.

Revised Bangladesh Squad:  Shakib Al Hasan (c), Litton Kumer Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain Dhrubo, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed, Shak Mahedi Hasan, Naim Sheikh, Shamim Hossain, Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Tanzim Hasan Sakib

As Bangladesh readies itself for the Asia Cup under the leadership of Shakib Al Hasan, the revised squad reflects a careful balance between experienced campaigners and the exuberance of youth. 

With the Asia Cup on the horizon, Bangladesh's fans can look forward to a team that is resilient, motivated, and eager to make its mark on the continental stage.
