WHO should be eliminated from this BCBX1 to leave space for ASH>>MASH>SN>AND SHADAT?

No one. Stick to the winning (I should say tie-ing) combination.

Just kidding. Nazimuddin, Raqibul and the Rubels (note that the BCB XI was a thirteen man squad).

In other words, this is what my squad will look like:

1. Tamim
2. Zunaed
3. Nafees
4. Ashraful
5. Shakib
6. Farhad
7. Dhiman
8. Mosharraf
9. Razzak
10. Shahadat
11. Rasel

Three pacers, three spinners, seven batsmen, two bowlers who can bat, two all rounders, only one debutant.

Actually, I think two of the thirteen batsmen had to sit out during the batting.

Considering that we are already playing 5 bowlers we don need anoter extra in the form of Farhad..I think Nazim is a better choice since he is a pure batsmen ( joga khichuri na)

farhad has to be there, you don't want to go in with only 2 pace options and i don't think the batting would be strong enough with 3 specialist pacers and a specialist spinner. that means if rubel is going to get in he has to take either shakib or razzak's place.

my team:

1. tamim
2. zunaed
3. nafees
4. ashraful
5. raqibul
6. shakib/rubel (rubel would bat lower)
7. dhiman
8. reza
9. razzak/rubel
10. shahadat
11. rasel

i don't think either razzak or shakib should be dropped but i don't really know enough about rubel to make a judgement like this especially now since he had that great performance in the BCB XI match, if he didn't have that performance i probably wouldn't be considering him tbh. if rubel is played as the main spinner and razzak is left out then mash could take reza's place but with mortaza in his current form reza is probably a better pick. also i think zunaed is under pressure to score runs this series, his ODI career to date really hasn't been very good at all.

This time, I seriously don't know how the eleven will look like. Mashrafee will most likely play. They won't drop him right away. Mosharraf Rubel made it harder for the team management to ignore him. Forhad did pretty well and deserves a chance. Rakibul and Nazim did okay but didn't stand out. Rasel is fit to play, Shahadat is almost impossible to drop.

My undropable list:

Ash
Tamim
Dhiman
Sakib

Every other spot you can argue. You can even argue about Sakib's spot. Lets see how it turns out.

Imagine we have this sort of situation for automatic chosen player. I believe now everybody should understand days of automatic choice are over unless otherwise some unknown power revert back to automatic choice. If these new recruits play severl matches home and abroad as A and academy teams, they should improve a lot. But I have not seen any notable arrangements of games for our A team and academy team players. Most probably, it's for lack of money, organization or lack of interest from opponents to play our team.

Just like I said, it's one thing to have a lineup that we want. It's totally a different thing to predict a lineup that the team management will write in. In most of the our team XI, Mashrafee is a no-no but I am sure when tomorrow comes, he will be the one taking the new ball.

I would stick with this combination as well. Fact about Rasel: he gave away just 20 runs in 8 overs. On the 45th over he got hammered and cost 14 runs, so went for 34 runs in 9 overs. He is definitely a better choice than Mota MaMa.

This one is real tough, which is good for BD, we have many options.

There is no point guessing who should play, as long as we have Tiger mama and gang, the teams will suck, our results will suffer.

Instead I will try to guess what they will think and select.

1. Ash - El Capitan, guranteed to play.
2. Masri - Is in bad patch, but we cant drop him just yet.
3. Russell - ODI specialist.
4. Nazimuddin - He must play his local ODI. Plus he is taken to fill the void from Aftab's absense.
5. Dhiman - No comment needed.
6. Razzak - ODI specialist.
7. Rubel - He exposed the long awaited SA spin weakness.
8. Tamim - Perfect explosive opener for ODI
9. Junaid - Siddon's trump card
10. Nafis - is back in form based on last test.

Only uncertainity is the 11th spot, I see Sakib with 40% chance, while Forhad or Razib has 30 % chance each.

March 7, 2008, 11:32 PM
This is a tough one. I am not sure what the team will look like come tomorrow morning. I doubt if Mashrafee gets dropped. Also, you can't sit Shahadat who is clearly the best old ball pacer in the team. You need someone to reverse the 40 over old ball in the death overs who will bowl full and attempt yorkers to get wkts, something Mashrafee is consistently unable to do. Then again, Mashrafee is a pretty good opening bowler with the white ball. I say we go with all three pacers- Mashrafee and Rasel to open, followed by Shahadat at first change and complete the death overs. Razzak is automatic in ODI's. Sakib is also there with his spin. I bet it will come down between Farhad and Mosharaf with Farhad edging him out. Then again, I could be entirely wrong. This is a very tough call.

zainab
March 7, 2008, 11:38 PM
I still think that Mash should be dropped, Junaid should be given one more chance to do
well in the first ODI. They need at least 4 front line bowlers, Razzak is a must, also Rasel.
Three spots should be given to newcomers including Dhiman Ghosh.

Tough choice and decision for Selectors and Siddons to make.
We are now begiining to see some competition for places in the National side. This is good for BD cricket, for now players have to perform to earn a place.
I think Siddons will now choose about 21 core players to train, and i am sure that in 6 months we will see marked improvement in these players.

nowadays reverse in ODIs is largely negated by the mandatory ball change. i hope rajib can continue to develop his LO bowling as he has his test bowling.

Three pacers, three spinners, seven batsmen, two bowlers who can bat, two all rounders, only one debutant.

I like your team, but I think if we got with 4 specialist bowlers, then maybe we can afford to drop Farhad for a more proper batsmen like Raquibul.

I think #6 might be a little too early for Farhad to come in. Also Raquibul showed yesterday that he can take time and build a partnership in the middle of an innings. That's very important for us, because many times we have a batting collapse and we need one or two batsmen to calm things down and build a partnership to ensure that we bowl all of the 50 overs and that we can post a defendable total. So I think a batsmen like Raquibul might be very useful for our team.

What do you guys think?

March 8, 2008, 12:30 AM
2 pacers might be enough as Shakib was saying they were waiting for SA to crumble to their spin (after Smith went out). Mosharraf, Razzak, Shakib all may play as Farhad was pretty ineffective with the ball. Plus SA seems to be weak against spin, not pace.

The team could look like this:
TI, ZI, SN, Ashraful, Nazim/ Roqibul, Shakib, Dhiman, Razzak, Mashrafi, Mosharraf, Rajib/Rasel.

I agree with you but I think Raqib shouldn't debut in this series. He's a nice player so he should wait till he get matured enough. He should play for A/Academy teams and gain more experience before getting in to National team. Its good that he was selected and I'm sure he will learn a lot by being a drinks boy.

I say wait for another year or so. I'm sure it will be good for him and the team as well.

We have destroyed so many talents by exposing them too early in international cricket. (e.g. Ashraful, Aftab, Mushy, Mashrafe, Alok, etc.)

A tough call INDEED ! With Farhad, we have a clean hitter of the ball who's likely to put some valuable runs down the order, and a bowler who continues to improve. MH Rubel on the other hand, has pretty good temperament with the bat, and is likely to be more effective against South African batsmen during the middle overs.

Great post as always twinsanity ... :)

Sohel
March 8, 2008, 09:15 AM
Looks like NO Rajib as expected since MaMu cannot be rested without BCB 'suspending' his vice captaincy first.

MH Rubel got the nod instead of Farhad, also somewhat expected. Let's hope he does more of what he did in the practice match, and can be as useful as Farhad with the bat and with his fielding. I won't bet on the second part.

Nazim got the nod as expected. A big mistake IMO but I hope he proves me wrong.

If this turns out to be the final team..I think it will be a very bad decision, firstly Roquib shouldve been selected ahead of Nazim, he played better in both the practice matches..second, we shouldve played 3 pacers:Rasel,Shahadat and Mashrafe, if Mashrafe fails to perform again and we have trouble picking up early wickets we have no chance and last I think we shouldve opened with Shahriar and picked either Tamim or Junaid as second opener that wouldve let us play an extra bowler(Rasel), but anyway I think if this strategy fails tomorrow we must change it not stick with it like we did in NZ

i would go with Rasel over Mosharof Rubel (new guy) on any situation/condition. Poor Rasel must be regreating for getting injured cuz now it's hard for him to get into the squad. Now S. Hussain bowling really well so it's really tough for Rasel to get back in...
Another question: How come they dont bring Riyad, Reza instead of Mosharof? OR how come they didn't add Roquibul (he is a good batsman; I think we need a batsman then a bowler)? Haire bangladesh zor jar bol tar

I'll go with this squad, but I think the selectors will pick one extra batsman. Nazimuddin in place of Mosharraf.

enamul jr. bowled very well in the 3-day match at fatullah. still we left him. yes, we had rafique then.
mosharraf ended up with exceptional figures in the tied match (8-2-19-3)! and we don't have ny rafique now.

Question remains with the others but junaied will play as he is also for sure because he is our GOLDEN BOY in siddons eye, so no way siddons will let the selectors to drop him. As far as mosharraf's concern he will also be in the team because of his brilliant performence with the bowl, btw he can also bat pretty well in any order and that has been clearly seen in the recently concluded NCL. Raquibul should get a chance because he is very well composed batsman and also played well in the practice game unfortunately he was run out, and i will not choose nazim because he failed to show his potential in bangladeshi colour. He plays well in the domestic level and no doubt he is a talented batsman too but the problem with him is that he fails when he plays for national team in any form of the game. Well in case of mashrafe i think we should give him another chance as he is still our best bowler, although he failed misrebly with the bat and bowl in tests. But in my opinion he is a much better bowler in one day and don't forget his 4 consecutive sixes against india in the last home series. But the doubt remains with who should play between shahadat and rasel. In this case i have not much to say as either of them will be a good choise. Shahadat bowled brilliantly in the test matches but he has still to prove himself as a genuine one day bowler, and that was because of his inconsistant line and length, but now after siddons took charge he seems to be a much better bowler than before. Rasel may also play as he showed a quite good performence in the practice match but he is not good in the slog overs and we need a bowler who can stop runs in the slog overs as there are few big hitters in south african team. So, i think siddons will go for shahadat in tomorrow's match...!!!

I hope they pick the best combination for this first ODI. I feel Rasel and Razzak are musts here. SA did not like it that the first prctice match was a tie, so they will be firing on all cylinders, eg. the difference between first and second test match. They know how to choke a team, i have seen them doing it to NZ and Pakistan, so they should never be underestimated.

Won't happen as Mosharraf also made himself hard to ignore, and selectors are obviously not going to leave out Razzak (our best ODI bowler). So, we have only two places for specialist pacers.

March 8, 2008, 02:34 PM
Yea I don't believe that CI is right either. Rasel must play and I think he will, if he doesn't, it will be devastating for our bowling lineup. He's usually the containment bowler until the powerplay ends and he does a great job at that too. He ensures that we don't give up too many runs before we hand the ball to the spinners, so they can come in, and apply pressure quickly. I wont even mind if its Mash and Rasel, as long as Rasel is there.

The crack head scorer could have posted that team on his own, I won't relay too much on that.

Anyway, it seems obvious that Mosharraf and Dhiman will get their debuts tomorrow. Nazim is in fight with Reza for the sixth batting spot (besides Tamim, Zunaed, Shahriar, Ashraful, and Shakib); Mashrafe, Rasel, and Shahadat are in fight for two pacer spots (while Razzak is certain to keep his place in the team) .

That would be a sad day for me. I don't know what else Farhad need to do to get into the team. He is an excellent fielder, effective ODI bowler, useful batsman. Only thing he may not be doing is 'tel Malish' to proper channel.

Rubel taking his place. Rubel can bat well you know.

Plus its a slow wicket. We need more spinners. WE don't need 3 pacers. So he and mashrafe will warm up the benches outside the boundery line.

But he should play in one of the matches. He's a nice player.

Eshen
March 8, 2008, 04:46 PM

It seems so. Farhad is kind of bowlers who won't be effective during powerplays or death overs. Siddons is probably thinking SLAs will be good enough to keep it tight during middle overs.

However, I will be more comfortable if he picks 6 bowlers for the match instead of minimum 5.

scoilaheez
March 8, 2008, 04:48 PM
For the first time, our bowling actually has a little depth... I am genuinely torn between who to leave out, i still think our best chance is to play 2 spinners and Sakib... so i think we should play Rasel and Mash even though Shahadat was our best player in the test series... what a dilemma for the selectors!

It seems to be too early for Raqibul (didn't see his batting) for ODI debut against the mighty SA. He could be tried against weaker Ireland. Farhad Reza would be better choice than Nazimudiin and Raquibul. Good to know that Nazimuddin is not in the squad. I saw his batting in T20/20 WC and his batting wasn't good.

Well, best of luck to Raqibul and hope he will bat well.

this is the problem with us. we are still think Nazim is not gonna score run because of Twenty20 WC. guys, thats a 20 over match this is 50 ovar match. even a child understand there is a huge difference. in Twenty20 Opener it is more like HIT OR MISS. but still Nazim got the record of the Highest score 81.

I have seen Nazim for years. i saw him playing here in ctg lots of great First-class Matches. He looks very Sharp. even before we give him a singel change to prove himself in ODI we cant count him out.
