Bangladesh have recalled teenage batsman Mushfiqur Rahim in a 15-man squad for the two-test series against Sri Lanka, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Saturday.

Mushfiqur, who made his test debut against England last year, led Bangladesh in the Under-19 World Cup which ended in Sri Lanka last week.

Fast bowler Mashrafe Mortaza is to be rested and misses the series.

The first test starts in Chittagong on Feb. 28 and the second will be played in Bogra.

Squad: Habibul Bashar (captain), Khaled Mashud, Shahriar Nafees, Javed Omar, Nafees Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Alok Kapali, Rajin Saleh, Aftab Ahmed, Mohammad Rafique, Enamul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Syed Rasel, Tapash Baisya, Shahadat Hossain.

Shahadat Hossain is fit for the test ? That is also surprising for us.If he was fit why they did not select him for ODI ?

Selectors possibly pulled a potential blunder by including Alok Kapali. However, since masri ain't in anymore, we might have to rely on more spin options to bowl the lankans out.

Oh and i forgot my main point,

So we've re-started the age-old policy of inducting U-19 players to our test squad?

Still, mushfiq, i believe, has exceptional quality, and may prove a point or two. let's see.

With shahadat and taposh in the bowling line-up it wouldn't be very unusual that srilanka will make a giant score.

I think the selectors are looking to the fact that Hossain and Rasel played well against the Lankans last year.

I think the XI will be:

1. Javed O
2. Shahriar N
3. Habibul Bashar
4. M Ashraful
5. Rahim
6. Aftab
7. Masud
8. Rafque
9. Rasel
10.Hossain
11. Enamul

Tapash' economy is alright in the tests but in odi he's shocking :)

We have to wait and see how our future captain, Musfiqur Rahim performs in this test.

He's not our future captain . It would be "Ashraful" .

I'm more than scared about our pace attack now. 12 over centurian shahadat is just back from an injury. result: 10 over century. taposh is disappointing me everyday. he just lost it somewhere. what happened to him? Rasel is the only one to depend on.

we better start with four prong spin. :yawn:

Nazmul would have been a better choice for the last odi but they stcked on Tapash . Tapash's economy doesn't look that bad in the tests . Shahdat needs to do real good . To win against kenya is more important than this test series against Srilanka . So , it' a great move by the selectors :)

What Alok Kapali instead of Musfiqur Rahim? Just to strengthen and our bowling, since Mashree is not in the squad. No doubt, we wont be able to get SL all out in the 4 innings of two tests! I really want to see how Enamul Haque bowls against the Lankan batsmen. Lots depends on his and Rafiq's performance, not only by taking the wickests, but by bowling the bulk amount of overs!

Mushfiq plays the 2nd test if someone fails miserably!

Prothom Alo said the wicket will be grassy to protect our batters from Murali-Bandara. I have a feeling that the team will use the same combination as they did in the last Test innings against Lanka i.e. sending JO and Iqbal to grind first few overs and protecting SN at #4.

i wont have kapali in the team. if rafiq and enamul cant get the lankans out an extra part time bowler will be of no help. i would rather play a 6th batsman in his position. either rahim or shahreer nafees (with nafis iqbal opening). both rahim and iqbal will perform better battingwise than kapali IMO.

it's sad that we don't have a third pacer who we could send in in times like this, and expect pretty much the same service as our first and second choices. i'm not sure how good an idea this is, but resting masri has probably just eliminated any chance we might have had to create any sort of pressure on the lankan batsmen early in the inning. rasel may be good, but he's still not the ideal test opener, imo. i think we've just created the opportunity for the sri lankans to settle down with a couple of leaves and blocks against rasel and a few boundaries against whoever it is that'll be accompanying him, and go on to score big.

This is my side with options (not in exact batting order):

1. Javed Omar
2. Nafees Iqbal/Rajin/Kapali
3. Shahriar Nafees
4. Bashar
5. Ashraful
6. Aftab
7. Khaled Mashud
8. Rafique
9. Tapash/Shahadat
10. Sayed Rassel
11. Enamul Haque

Mushfiqur Rahim (12th man)

If we have a defensive mindset we should have N. Iqbal or Rajin. Rajin can stick it out there, and that helps in test matches. And of course he bowls a little bit and his fielding is top notch. Else, if we want to have more bowling options then we should have Kapali. He is not in too bad a form, judging from the ODIs.

With Masrafee injured, that'd be my side as well.
