Don't know if this was posted already or not but just read the following in the Independent. Glad to hear Rafique is back. Don't know about Durjoy though. Moni would have been a better choice even though they have different bowling styles. Don't want to skeptical though. The break from international cricket might have had Durjoy more focused bowling and batting.

Sujon is back as well. I think he is a better batsman than a bowler and should be played only as a batsmen. He get's hammpered when he bowls in ODIs. Needless to say, Nannu would have been the best choice for the ODI as an all rounder but I guess I'll never live to see if my predictions ever come true.

Durjoy, Sujon, Rafique to play in ODI series

Bhai, Nannu is no all rounder. He'd bat more responsibly then these immature kids that are playing 'chini mini khela with our hopes and dreams'.

Shujan can really hammer it. He may be 5'2 or 5'3 but pola bat haat e majhe maajhe BISHAL hoite parey. Even bigger then Akku uncle. Same goes for Rafique.

Shujon's bowling is at best slow medium and that really doesn't bother folks too much spcially when he strays so much. Rafique will provide some strenght in that department.
