Finally the ODI's are over ! What ever happened is past.....but the thing that bangladesh achived is...some "changes" in Batsmans manner....

Look at Ashrafu...Playing sensible cricket. Getting Fiftie's, Its nothing new...we All know if ashraful plays sensibly....he can Reach 50+ anytime in any match. And thats what he's done in last two odI's.

However, Now we can look forward for Test squad.....
Its Good that Mushfiqur Rahim is added.....I really want Mushfiqur to be in final 11. Even Instead Of Nafis IQBAL....

So my Team will be like this..

Javed omer + Shahreer Nafis = openers
Habibul Bashar
Ashraful
Mushfiqur Rahim
Aftab Ahmed
Khaled Mashud
Mohammed Rafiq
Sayed Rassel
Shahadat Hossain/Taposh
Enamul Huq jnr

12th man: Alok Kapali /Rajin saleh

I think this is the Squad which will be the best.....

What do u think....Is there any up or down (should be)?? lets see who comes with the best combination....

I would go for the same combination. But Aftab should bat at #5 and Mushfiq Rahim should bat at #6. And I would pick Shahadat over Taposh

Umar
February 25, 2006, 08:22 PM
Then who is going to bat for....#4....Surely itwont be Pilot...

and c'mon mushfiqur rahim must bat at # 3 or #4...

Remember at Lords.....He Was playing good....But there was no one to Support him........I saw that match in the stadium....

So I would like to see Rahim Batting at #3 or #4....But at the moment #4 would be good....

I would pick Kapali over M.Rahim

kapali is a allrounder

howzatt!
February 25, 2006, 11:32 PM
i think mushfiqur rahim would be best at #6. batsmen like ashraful and habibul bashar have significantly reduced playing sily shots. so,w can rely on them to build partnerships. mushfiqur rahim would come in handy when we have lost 4 wickets and need another partnership before lower order is exposed. he could build partnership with pilot given that both of them can face murali confidently and not get decieved by his doosras. pilot had hard time facing murali in SL last year. I would definately pick shahdat hossain over tapash. shahdat-rasel duo did serious damage to SL top order last year. I really don't want bashar to play at #3. but its time he takes responsibilty of batting at #3 in tests and build a solid platform for ashraful and aftab down the order.

1. JO
2. SN
3. Bashar
4. AShraful
5. Aftab
6. M.Rahim
7. Pilot
8. Rafique
9. Rasel
10. Rajib
11. Enamul

I am in favor of introducing Rahim in the test level gradually (he is is still 16-17 yrs old) , so i would play him in one the games and play either Rajin or Alok in the other. I think rajin deserves more opportunity at the test level.

Also, on current form i would pick Shahadat over taposh.

February 26, 2006, 11:39 AM
definately shahadat... again i would pick kapali for the first test and rahim for the second...

what about nafis iqbal
i know s nafis will be out of team for first test.
nafis iqbal,will be back for sure

shahadat is good choice
musfiqur rahim is also included

it is quite hard to set 11 players this time

why not if he(rahim) can play better than some body else

for example india called a player from u19 forthcoming series vs england though they have lot of good players

so if we have option we should recalled also it doesnot matter u19/u17

its fully depend how he is playing

i think nobody forgot england series , how much capable he was

I would pick & batsman 6 batsman, 1 allrounder, wicketkeeper and 3 bowlers.

Shahriar
Javed
Habibul
Ashraful
Mushfique
Aftab
Alok Kapali
Pilot
Rafique
Rasel
Shahadat


This is the best team to have more runs on the board. We have also enough bowlers: ENamul, Rajib, Rasel, Kapali, Ash, Aftab(the last 2 part-timer really in tests matches).

I dont think Mushfiq will get a chance in the 1st test but Kopali and Rajin will fight for the position definitely. But I do like to see Rajin in as we need players who doesn't play too many shots. So here's my team.

Javed Omer
Shahriar Nafees
Habibul Bashar
Ashraful
Aftab Ahmed
Alok Kapali/Rajin Saleh
Khaled Mashud
Mohammad Rafique
Shahadat
Russell

I know you will all jump on me, but somebody has to say it sometime, why not me then.. what if we include Mushfiq as the wicketkeeper cum batsman? That way we get an extra specialist batsman - Rajin or nafis iqbal can play.

February 26, 2006, 03:39 PM
....and I thought Rajin is an oneday specialist only (unless the opponent is Zimbabwe). Silly me :lol:

:great::fanflag:

ite.. lokk at those red colors. i think they should go for a break. Mushfiq Rahim can take masud's spot for a while, when we can introduce another left handed spiner to the team. and it will be silly if bashar do not pick alok on the team. since we know that our pace attack suckz, n on top of tht masrafi is gone, its always smart to have more spiners who can keep balling constantly.

Haha...Dont worry...KHaled Mashud wont be in rest that quickly....because Past years he had played good....Even though he played crap in ODI's....He will be in First Test offcourse...And I believe he will be the 3rd highest scorer...:P

Rajin Saleh and taporsh...Well.....Taposh is having bad time...But he is a wicket taker remember.......and about Rajin I have no comment,,,,What ever the Selectors like..I am with them....


By the way....Some people are making a Team Without ROFIQ ??? WOW.....

Most Bangladeshi news papers are predicting the team will be a traditional one- 6 specialist batters+ 4 specialist bowlers+ the keeper. Let's go through process of elimination who might make the cut as batsmen.

Alok: not considered specialist of anything, not at this point. So, he is out.

Rajin: only one from the ODI squad asked to take part in the training session yesterday along with four cricketers picked for the Test squad only. So, DW is thinking him over. My gut feeling is that the management won't try him on a grassy wicket (as promised by BCCB curators).

So the dilemma is who to pick between Iqbal and Mushfiq. I think the problem depends on Abir, who is apparently suffering from lack of confidence at this point. The management may continue to show their faith in him as an opener, in which case Mushfiq will come to play in the middle order. Or the management may try to protect him now by sending him at #4 position (like they did in the last Test innings in Lanka), in which case Iqbal will get another chance as an opener.

I hope there will be no question about who will be other four batsmen :lol:

Oh please.....you guys think Aftab Ahmed and Alok Kapali are test calibre players? Who'r u kidding?

Rather, I'd have Rajin Saleh and Mushfiqur Rahim in the squad. Those ARE test calibre players.

ah yeah you might say so.. i also do agree.. pilot is one of my fav player as well.. but the problem is if he is on the team we won't be able to have another spiner..such as alok..who is in a great form at the moemnt.. however, since we have two wricket keepers, musfiq rahim and masud, why don't we pick one of them?! and we have seen rahim keeping instead of masud in england.. and in many cases he was almost as equivalent as masud. :) so why not giving masud rest for a match as they did to Vass or Murli for the ODI's.. and try out something new.. and masud also looked pretty tired to be recently.. he also started to drop few catches..

Shahreer Nafees and Nafis cant be in the same teeam...They both are openers....C'mon.....One of them will Seriously Flop...I can Predict.....And most Probably it will be Nafis Iqbal !

Mushfiq was a really good option instead of Nafis.....
