On Friday, Taskin suffered an injury in his left ankle in a Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match against the Chittagong Vikings while fielding for the Sylhet Sixers.
This is the first call for the 25-year-old Ebadot in the national team.
Shafiul has played in 56 ODIs for Bangladesh, with his last engagement being in Oct 2016 against England in Chattogram. He was dropped from the squad because of poor form and injury. He has taken 15 wickets so far for the Rangpur Riders in the latest edition of BPL.
Taskin had made a return to the ODI and Test squads on top of a fine BPL performance. He remains the highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 22 scalps.
Bangladesh will play the first game of the three-match ODI series in New Zealand on Feb 13. The first of the three Tests will begin on Feb 28.
