Zimbabwe on Wednesday called up member of their Under-19 World Cup squad Wesley Madhevere for the limited-over series against Bangladesh.

The 19-year-old all-rounder, who scored two half-centuries and took eight wickets with his off-breaks at the recent ICC Under-19 World Cup in South Africa, is one of the five changes made to the side that lost the one-off Test to Bangladesh.

Sean Williams, who missed the five-day match for the birth of his daughter, was back for the shorter versions of the game.

Chamu Chibhabha will lead the side in three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 internationals.

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Richmond Mutumbami were the two other additions in the limited-over side.

Prince Masvaure, Kevin Kasuza, Regis Chakabva, Victor Nyauchi and Brian Mudzinganyama are returning home after the Test match. The three ODIs will be held on March 1, 3 and 6 respectively in Sylhet before Dhaka hosts the two T20Is on March 9 and 11.
