Not bad.

They have mixed up both squads.

I thought National team will play against the A-team.

THOUGHTS ON COMPOSITION OF TEAMS FOR PRACTICE MATCHES AND EXPECTATIONS

Selectionwise pretty good composition for Bangladesh National and A teams for the practice matches. Not much to complaint.

I feel sorry for Dhiman to be displaced from the National to A eleven. But if he fares outstandingly in the two practice matches and outperforms Rahim who knows he may storm back into the national team. After all he is still in the reserve list.

Also it will be a healthy competition between him and Rahim. Pakistan had a similar situation sometime back when both Rashid Latif and Moin khan had to fight for one place.

One never knows we may also find both in the team in the event our middle order fails. Rahim can be handy. He is a good grafter and can accelerate as the need of the situation at a later stage.

Dhiman on the otherhand is very suitable for accelerating runs. An attractive stroke maker. Did reasonably well against Pakistan.
.
Wicketkeepingwise Dhiman may be a shade better than Rahim. I am not sure how much Rahim has improved wicketkeepingwise during his absence from the team. He has done pretty well with the bat in the league which prompted the selectors to call him and preferring him ahead of Dhiman.

Junaed’s selection as Captain of A team ahead of experienced Kapali is baffling.

Maybe the selectors is gambling with this measure to see If Junaed with added responsibility comes back to form with a bang and Alok being ignored from the captaincy responds with a comeback innings.

Expectations:

Out of form players: We all hope Out of Form Players Ashraful, Nafees, Zunaed gets back to form.

Opening Pairs: A good opportunity for the opening pairs of either team to build up solid opening partnerships.

Bowling : One expects Razzaq to find his form and wicket taking abilities

Uncapped players: There are a number of young and upcoming players representing both the sides. Opportunity for them to show their mettle for future consideration.

We hope everyone does their best.

May God help us to find the best playing Eleven for the upcoming Triangular series

Cheers!

imrul should be in the A squad, anyone else surprised he's not there? i guess they'll open with junaid and nazimuddin, they seem set on turning nazimuddin into an opener for some reason.

as for dhiman getting back based on the practice matches. aren't the squads for the upcoming series already announced? if so dhiman is going to have to wait until these series' are over to get back into the team. only other way to get in there is from injuries and we don't want that.

Bowlers of the national Team should have been against the batsmen. At least one would expect the best batsmen to play against the best bowlers.

Lets hope they can get disciplined and motivated to win.

Why couldn't we have Nafees Iqbal in the teams, and opening with Tamim? Shahriar Nafees could be with his brother in the other team..on paper the A- team doesn't have many good players. So would be funny if the national team didn't manage to score over 200...wouldn't be surprised though. It is after all practice for the real thing..hehe
