dailystar says that two medium pacers are being sent from dhaka, taposh kumar and alok kapali and they along with sumit and ashraful are likely to be fielded in the second test!!!

Kapali is a prospective HAAR KAPANI spinner. Ok, maybe not haar ka[ani but he is a potential replacement for the older spinners. What's good about him is that he can also bat.

That is, Alok Kapali is a leg spinner. By the way, have anybody noticed that Upul Chandana might be playing in the 2nd test?

It could be his chance to get a 5-wicket haul against us.

Taposh Kumar is a replacement for Tareq Aziz, who had injured himself during the first few days (leg injury of some sort) according to Prothom Alo.

It is surprising that we didn't hear about Tareq Aziz's injury a little sooner.

What ? You are surprised that neither BCB nor the papers have provided us any useful info (including team changes, injuries).
I must say, you have been corrupted by the foriegn media where they even get stories about the players wives best friends doctor's gf being gay.
Our 'reporters' (mostly) only get as much as they are required to keep their job and rarely shows any ingenuity.

I vagely remember, once in BD I read a journal of a reporter how he was saying, all a reporter has to do is come up with one great reporting in his life, and then live off that rest of the career.
