Shakib Al-Hasan has been named in the Bangladesh Test squad that will tour Zimbabwe for a two-match series later this month.

The 26-year-old is recovering from surgery for a stress fracture in his right shin, which kept him out of Bangladesh's tour of Sri Lanka in March. Chief selector Akram Khan said the all-rounder is likely to play as a batsman in the first Test starting April 17.

"Shakib will play as a batsman in the first Test. Whether he will bowl or not is up to whether he recovers in time, but he will definitely be ready to bowl in the second Test match," Akram said.
