Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is set to return at No.3 in the upcoming three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka scheduled to be played from May 23.

Bangladesh’s team management opted to demote Shakib in his comeback ODI series after the ban against West Indies to provide experience down the order. However, the ploy did not pay off as Nazmul Hossain failed to seize the opportunity at the position that paved the way for Soumya Sarkar’s return in the following ODI series against New Zealand which Shakib missed.
