View Full Version : Best playing eleven

March 7, 2006, 12:47 PM
1. Shahriar Nafees
2. Javed Omar/ Nafees Iqbal
3. Bashar
4. Ashraful
5. Aftab Ahmed
6. Mushfiqur Raheem
7 Khaled mashud
8. Mohammad Rafique
9. Mashrafe mortaza
10.Shahadat Hossain
11.Syed Rasel

I think that this is the best line we can have from now on on a permanent basis granted we dont have any injuries.

The thing with JO is that on his day which dosent come often he can stay at the crease and I know a lot of people includng myself were horrified with Nafees's shot to get out in the 2nd innings but I thought he played very well in the first innings and he has a much more sold technique than JO... obviously.

The thing about Nafees is that horrid shot he always plays with no footwork just dabbing at the ball and getting caught behind. If he can overcome that horrible technique/urge I beleive he can go a long way. Very impressive against Australia in the ODIs in England.

Bashar is the captain so thats an obvious choice but he is 33 who is gonna replace him I wonder.

Ashraful: well we all know about him. He needs a permanent sports phycologist with him on a portable radio whenever he is batting.

Aftab Ahmed obviously no question.

Musfiqur Raheem: I think its time he starts playing regularly despite his age. He is obviously a huge prospect for the future.

As far as the bowlers Mashrafe and Syed Rasel are the best options for fast bowling and Shahadat is good at cleaning up the tail. Shahadat unfortunately still has a million things to learn and I know watching him can be frustrating but I think if we brought in a proper bowling coach who can teach them about swing and variation etc he can improve.

Comments and suggestions welcome.
