Bangladesh recall Rafique in the Test squad
19 February 2008
Bangladesh have recalled veteran spinner Mohammad Rafique in the 14-man squad for the two match Warid Telecom Test series against South Africa today.
Enamul Haque Jr., who was part of the recently concluded New Zealand series, faced the axe along with all-rounder Farhad Reza and left arm seamer Syed Rasel from the 17-man provisional squad.

i think the squad is good enough.

i think it will be straight forward two seamers and two spinners.

two seamers are mashrafe and Shahadat and the spinners are Razzak and rafique. and for the two tests these 4 will be unchanged.

now 4 bowlers+mushfik,ashraful, junaid. 7 places are fixed.

tamim/nafees will be openers. so 8 places gone.

so 3 batsmen remaining from sakib/bashar/nafees/aftab/rajin.

i think bashar aftab and sakib will play.

now russel out sajedul in could be a debate. now whoever is in has no chance of play because two seamers will play and it will be mashrafe and shahadat. so sajedul getting in the fourteen means he will be better as a sub fielder and russel can take rest and be back at full fitness for ODI's.

now sakib and reza are the all rounder and the only spot goes to sakib because he is the spinner. and no way reza is good to replace any batsmen. thats why he missed out.
