1. Shahryar Nafees 2. M Ashraful 3. H. Suman 4. Rajin Saleh 5. Afab Ahmed 6. Alok Kapali 7. Khaled Masud 8. M Rafique 9. Masrafe Mortaza 10. Shahadat Hossain
11. Sayed Rasel

Shahryar, Suman, Rajin, Khaled, Rafiq and Masrafe`s position do not any explanation.

2. Ashraful: He is not a thinking player and can never be made aware of his resposnsibilities. He knows only one thing and that is playing his strokes. Putting him in a position where it will need him to be aware of the situation is meaningless. So the best way to snatch out the best of him is to play him in the opening. Moreover he was a opener in the youth team and very well knows how to play the new ball. Secondly J O B Gullu will be off so we really need a opener.

5. Aftab Ahmed: Technically one of the strongest players of the country plus he is becoming a very good finisher day by day. Our team can`t affort of losing him.

6. Alok Kapali: He is a strong player and the best occasional leg spinner. As we don`t want a Raz or Enamul (jr) he along with Rajin and aftab can take care of 10 over bowling easily and we won`t have to take the burden of a second spinner in an ODI. Instead we can have a speacialist batsman.

10. Shahadat: No he is no more just a helping hand of Masrafe. He has proved his importance and necessity in the team.

11. Rasel: best for new ball bowling

Now look even after losing 4 wickets we will have speacialist batsmen in the middle. After a strong batting line up is what success in ODI is all about.

Tell me how is Tanzie thinking.

1. Rajin
2. Nafees
3. Bashar - has a fine history of building solid partnerships with Rajin, Nafees & Ash.
4. Ashraful - it's because of his carelessness he shouldn't be risked in an opener's position as his performance in this match may determine his future inclusion.
5. Afab - Best middle-order batsmen with plenty of firepower!
6. Alok - A handy batsman with some good past record and able to build partnership.
7. Pilot
8. Rafique
9. Masrafe
10. Razzak
11. Rasel

Good selections although I would like to see some game plan this time.

Request to players, please don't throw your wickets by playing those silly shots.

Our focus should be first keep wickets withing 15 over and go for big shots after 40.

The main concern should be to avoid an early collapse. The openers should bat out minimum 10 overs and if we're batting first the top 6 should aim to reach 40th over and score around 200. Final 10 overs should be fireworks! If we're chasing a big total I'd move Aftab to #3 and may be Rafique 1 place up.

I'll go with Miraz's order, with minor changes.

Aftab/Bashar and Pilot/Raique can swap their position depending on match situation.

I like other`s batting order`s too. But one thing is itching me... why do we have to go for Razzak when we are having Alok Kapali( with a hatrik ) and Aftab( with a 5 wicket haul and both have been bowling regularly ). I think at the moment it is hard to tell who is the ultimate choice between Shahadat and Masrafe. Shahadat is a great bowler. With him our bowling attack will be a comlete one for ODIs( 2 pacers, 1 medium pacer, 1 spinner and 2 occasional bowlers) and no more be half paralized....

The best batting order for the tigers: Rajin and SN opens and then we start from #11, and go down to 3. So, #3 comes as the last batsman.
