Bangladesh have named 12 players for their ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 opener against India tomorrow (Saturday).

Opener Javed Omer, batsman Rajin Saleh and fast bowler Shahadat Hossain Rajib have been left out of the side.

The team will train today afternoon at the Queen’s Park Oval here, the venue for tomorrow’s match. This will be the Tigers’ first practice session at the Oval.

The day began on a sombre note for the Bangladesh team with the news that 22-year-old all-rounder Manzarul Islam Rana had been killed in a road accident back home in Khulna along with another First Class cricketer Sajjadul Setu.

“It is a terribly distressing news and we don’t have words to express our shock and grief. The players are absolutely stunned. Our heart goes out to Rana’s family and may the Almighty grant his soul eternal peace,” said skipper Habibul Bashar.

“If we do something good in this World Cup we will dedicate that to Rana,” added Bashar.

Bashar also expressed his grief at the sad demise of Setu who was on the back seat of the same motorbike Rana was riding.

“It is a great loss for our cricket. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Setu’s young family,” said Bashar.

The Bangladesh team has decided to wear black arm bands during tomorrow’s match to show their respect to Rana who appeared in six Test matches and 25 ODIs for the country.


Bangladesh squad
Habibul Bashar (Captain), Shahriar Nafees Ahmed (VC), Tamim Iqbal Khan, Aftab Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Ashraful, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mohammed Rafique, Abdur Razzak, Syed Rasel, Tapash Baishya.

Taposh should have been left out, Rajib should have been the 3rd seamer, pending wicket condintion to play or be 12th player.

Bad decision.

Does the 12th person of the squad has to be the 12th man? I would like to see rajin fielding even if he is not playing.

Anyone from the squad can do the fielding job, not necessarily the 12th man.

I'll wear a black arm band tomorrow during the match too...to be part of our observance.

The team looks fine to me. All we can do now is wait, and let our boys win this match for Rana. Every run and and every wicket should be dedicated to him.

yeah, rajib in place of tapash would have been good.
If any of Tamim or Aftab can play a long innings, the day is ours.

Meanwhile, gibbs hitted 4 successive sixes .........and still going......

Shahdat should have been there as pointed out by others, I don't know about his recent form but a genuine pacer is always handy against Indian players like Ganguly(who wears 10 different protective gear) lol

The only reason i can think of Tapash inclusion is his past record in WI? ( our last tour)...
cuz i cant think of any...

Rajib should hv bn picked...
but then again..he (tapash) would probably be the 12th man...

I still dont know why Tapash was picked. I mean, Im not exactly a Tapash basher but his track record in the warmup games was terrible.....

Ganguly fearing 135 kmph thunderbolt of Shahadat? He has faced Ntini(140 kmph), Jeroen Taylor(145 kmph) and Malinga(150 kmph) recently without problems.

Take my words back, Ganguly is the best player of pace bowling!
