Nazimuddin Replaces Shahriar Nafees For Australia Tour

Bangladesh opening batsman Shahriar Nafees will play no part in the upcoming One Day International tour of Australia after having asked to withdraw to sit exams.

"Nafees made a request to us to withdraw his name from the squad and it was accepted," a spokesman for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said.

Nazimuddin, who opened the innings for Bangladesh during the Asia Cup, has been named as his replacement.

Bangladesh play three One Day Internationals, the first of which is on August 30th.
