In which case I'd have Nasir Hossain, if there's a good chance Shuvo makes the Test team.

i would consider nazmus, rony, marshall, shamsur and i hope shuvagoto gets into the playing XI (prefer these guys over mehrab jr). i'd take dhiman or mithun over shagir. for the allrounder spots you have shabbir, mahmudul and nasir. noor hossain or shaker ahmed could be considered for the spinner spot but saqlain should be given it. shuvo is an automatic here if he doesn't make the test squad.

for pacers we have a bunch, i'd go with subashis, sajidul and emon but we also have robin, dolar, robiul, abul, alauddin, ziaur and talha.

emon, sajidul,abul,ziaur,dollar---are not in best form at this moment.they are irregular in NCL even

under19 players--good for ODI but in test match or longer version--they have almost zero experience.

agree mithun and dhiman over shagir

Sun Mar 7 - Tue Mar 9
venue: Chittagong, which stadium is a bit of confusion

well its a bit too early but i cant but open the thread.

the team that will be facing will be named bangladesh A and until that time england will have faced BD spinners so no point hiding our sla spinners in this time. i expect we have a good team with ncl performers in it. this is my team.... ....

jahurul islam
mehrab hoassain junior (captain)
nazimuddin
farhad hossain
faisal hossain
saghir hossain pavel
nasir hossain
shabbir rahman
saqlain sajib
rabiul islam
talha zubaer

reserve; shuvagoto, elias sunny, kamtul islam

i thought of including ash or rock but later thought let the new boys play it out


best possible line up, though its too early to select test team

wkt keepr--my choice is anamul/dhiman/mithun ali (anamul-- less experience, dhiman-- might get the chance)

i think dhiman is the best wkt keeper in the country,
batting wise---- anamul
in between--- mithun ali

if we are going to put our out of form players in the test match then we should let them play in this match to see if they can get some runs under their belt, like Aftab, Big Z, Imrul.

This one is going to be Highly Competitive I believe, for the 2 or 3 Test Slots that will be open ... of the top, I'd say

Shahriar Nafees
Nafees Iqbal**
Nazimuddin**
Rockibul Hasan
Mohammad Ashraful*
Naeem Islam (just to get some FC Practice)
Aftab Ahmed
Syed Rasel**
Random Keeper
Crap Fast Bowler ... Tarq Aziz SHarif?
Crap Fast Bowler ... U-19 Bowler?


** = Depends on Who makes the NCL Final

March 1, 2010, 11:59 PM
i really want to see what the bench warmers have in this match i.e. jahurul, farhad, shuvagoto, etc. SN, ash and aftab don't need this match, what they need is one on one coaching focusing on improving their weaknesses, even if they play this match and score well they should improve their weaknesses before coming back to the national team.

No spinners in the side PLEASE!! Don't let them practice against in any spinner.

Must include Faisal Hossain, Farhad Hossain, Jaharul, Shahriar Nafees, Naeem.
Add as many pace bowlers, if posible have some grass in the pitch to make feel England at home.

thats a good idea. lets make a green pitch. lets give our top NCL performes a go against some quality english bowlers in a green pitch.

also lets give our pacers a go in the green pitch against english bowlers

this no spinners business i really don't agree with, they've faced spinners before it's not going to make a difference. shabbir, noor and mahmudul could be worth ago here, and nasir and shuvo as well if they're not in the test squad. for pacers i really don't care about form or being regulars or irregular's in the NCL, get the ones who have the weapons i.e. subashis, sajidul, emon. if not them then go with talha, robiul, robin or maybe alauddin babu.

i'm kind of surprised shaker ahmed hasn't been given any chances in BCB XI's or domestics since guys like noor, shabbir, mahmudul, babu and anamul who are from the same u19 team have been given shances.

yes, they have faced spinners before. But it is always slighly different in Bangladesh condition than in IND/PAK/SL. Also only Collingwood played in BD pitches before + 1st test will be played in the same stadium.

This is a practice match, and our goal should be - not to let English players practice/prepare on what they will be facing in the test. Make it bad as much as you can.

I remember India leaving grass even in the practice pitches when Australia last visited them. May be this will not make big difference, but we need to make it as bad as possible.

March 2, 2010, 12:34 AM
personally i prefer to give the BD prospects some quality experience against quality opposition, for me these matches are an important part of a players development. also we probably won't have a leg spinner in our test team so what about playing a leggy?

Ya, it is a other way of looking at the matter - Giving chacne to the performers like Saqlain, Sabbir (leggy) and see how they perform against quality opposition and it will provide them valuable experiecne also. There is also nothing wrong in it. It is actually the priority of what youn are looking for. I am looking the matter as a great chacne for us to upset England in Test. So, I am thinking of each and every cent here which can lead us to an upset.

Struggling Ashraful confident of fulfilling promise (http://www.cricinfo.com/engvbdesh2010/content/story/450976.html)

After an ODI series that was perhaps closer than the 3-0 scoreline suggests, the general consensus is that Bangladesh cricket is slowly reaching the standard required to compete on equal terms with the bigger nations in world cricket. But "slowly", unfortunately, is the operative word, and in Chittagong on Sunday, one of the slowest developers of them all returns to centre stage.

Mohammad Ashraful epitomises all the promise and frustration of Bangladesh cricket. When he's in form, he bats with a fluency that few in the world can match - never more thrillingly than during his century on debut against Sri Lanka in September 2001, when he was a carefree whippersnapper of 16, which encapsulated the richness of talent that the country seemed set to produce.

Unfortunately, of late, Ashraful's career has hit the buffers. A wretched tour of New Zealand realised 62 runs in six innings, in all three forms of the game, and followed a threadbare series of performances against India and Sri Lanka, in which he managed one half-century in eight innings.

With the blessing of the board, Ashraful sat out the three ODIs in a bid to clear his mind ahead of next week's Test series, but even that policy didn't quite pay the dividends he'd hoped. In four first-class innings for Dhaka Division, he mustered 21 runs including three ducks, to leave his hopes of a recall resting rather heavily on his performance against England in the forthcoming three-day warm-up.

"In the last couple of months I have not been batting well," Ashraful told Cricinfo. "In the nets I am batting well, but in the middle I get out very early, so that's why I feel I needed a bit of a break from international cricket. But tomorrow is a three-day game, and if I bat well there, I can play Test cricket again."

In Ashraful's absence, Bangladesh have made decent progress against England, particularly in the batting where Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim have formed a promising core of young and motivated prospects. But there's no question in the minds of either the selectors or the coaching staff that a confident and focussed Ashraful would transform the dynamic of their team, by slotting in at No. 3 or 4, and providing a touch of class to an otherwise functional middle-order.

"I still think that he is one of our best players for Bangladesh," Akram Khan, the chairman of selectors, told Cricinfo. "He's played a lot of good innings for us, and so there's no confusion about how good he is. But the last six or seven months, he has not been in good shape, so we are praying that he can finally come good. If he plays well, he can make the difference for Bangladesh, and we are ready for that."

Unfortunately, Ashraful's single biggest problem is the fact that these expectations have already been looming over him for nigh on a decade, and with every new failure, a new solution is thrust into the mix. He was feeling the burden during England's last tour in 2003, when Dav Whatmore dropped him from the Test series in a bid to shield him from the pressures, and his desperation to avoid a repetition of that scenario was one of the main reasons why he sat out the one-dayers.

"Everyone has been talking with me, and giving me advice, so I just needed to go away and work it out for myself," Ashraful said. "I think I have a problem with my gameplan. My batting is okay, but some days I'm very attacking and some days I'm very defensive. That's why I'm scoring only every four or five games.

"I needed to think more, and come up with one solid gameplan, and now I am thinking ball-by-ball and playing positive cricket," he added. "I just haven't scored enough runs recently, but I believe in myself, and if I feel good, Insh'allah they will select me."

The selectors are, by and large, sympathetic to Ashraful's plight. "It happens," Akram said. "When good players play for a long time, they go through periods when their form is not quite there. I think this was the right time [for Ashraful] to get out from there. I know he is trying very hard, and I hope he can come back soon. The boys played very well without him, but we need some experience and he has played a lot of long innings. If he comes back, it can only be good for the Test team."

For all the problems that Ashraful has endured of late, the chance to slot into a team in which his personal performance is no longer the decisive factor can only be a good thing. "In the past there was big pressure on me, but now we have a lot of match-winners," he said. "Now I am just one of the players who has to perform. When we beat the big teams I sometimes play brilliant cricket, but now we have four or five guys who can do that, so I need to step up again.

"It is good for Bangladesh," he added. "When Jamie [Siddons, the coach] came here two years ago, he said he needed more players like me. Now we have a lot of players performing good cricket. They are very confident, and they are not scared anymore. Last year we won 14 games, and even though ten of those were against Zimbabwe, it still shows that we are improving."

As for Ashraful's personal ambitions, he hopes that the coming year can prove to be a watershed in his career. Having given up the captaincy and reassessed his game away from the spotlight, he still believes he is young enough, and sufficiently motivated, to transform an international record that does no justice whatsoever to his talent.

"Scoring in domestic cricket isn't the same as doing it in Test cricket, so it was just good for me to get away," he said. "I definitely see this as a new start. I'm only 26, so if I'm fit enough I can play ten years or more. For the last nine years, I have been up and down, so now I need to perform regularly. My best time is still to come, I think."

I know that a lot of members here are hoping for Ash to fail once again, and it seems that the jinx is following him.

Anyhow, IMO, I feel that Ash should make a turn around and become a bowling all rounder, seems to have lost his confidence, but he is still the same Ash who can wield the bat.
BCB is not willing to see him get lost in the wilderness.

hahahaa, actually we all love Ash and all want to see his good form, but last couple years he himself forced us to believe that he doesn't deserve to be adore,hey again a player never bigger than a country. So, the preference come first who can serve the best for the country not the team has to serve for a player on behalf of the country.

Like me I know others love to see Ash when he is on song with the bat.. we bash him because he and others turned down our hopes and passion too regularly when we count like him player most.

[বাংলা]‘প্রয়োজনে হাত খুলেও খেলতে পারি’

নিউজিল্যান্ডে একমাত্র টেস্টে ছিলেন একাদশের বাইরে, ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে ওয়ানডে সিরিজে চলে গেলেন দলেরই বাইরে। তবে বাংলাদেশ ‘এ’ দলের হয়ে তিন দিনের ম্যাচে মাঠে নামার আগের দিন রকিবুল হাসান জানালেন ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজের দলে থাকার আশা করছেন তিনি...

বেশ কিছুদিন টানা খেলার পর ওয়ানডে দলের বাইরে থাকতে হলো, কেমন লেগেছে?
রকিবুল: আসলে এটা ক্রিকেটজীবনেরই অংশ। এ সিরিজের ওয়ানডে দলের বাইরে থাকার আগে নিউজিল্যান্ড টেস্টেও একাদশের বাইরে ছিলাম। আসলে ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট দুটো আমি ভালো খেলতে পারিনি। তো কোচ-নির্বাচকেরা যা ভালো মনে করেছেন, তা-ই করেছেন।

নিউজিল্যান্ডে টেস্ট খেলা না হলেও স্কোয়াডে কিন্তু ছিলেন। এখন ওয়ানডে দল থেকে বাদ পড়েছেন, টেস্টেও এমন হওয়ার আশঙ্কা করছেন?
রকিবুল: আমি তো আশা করছি দলে থাকব। ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজে ভালো করতে পারিনি, কিন্তু তার আগে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজে কিন্তু খারাপ করিনি। তার পরও নির্বাচক-কোচ-অধিনায়ক দলের জন্য যা ভালো মনে করেন, করবেন।

রান পাচ্ছিলেন না বলেই কিন্তু ওয়ানডেতে বাদ পড়েছেন...
রকিবুল: আমি এ কথায় ঠিক একমত নই। ওয়ানডেতে রান একদমই পাইনি তা কিন্তু নয়। ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজে ২৮, ৩২, ৪৩ করেছি, ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচেও ৪৪ করেছি। মোটামুটি ভালো অবস্থাই ছিল। শুধু ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজেই রান পাইনি।

কিন্তু ৩০-৪০ রানে সন্তুষ্ট হওয়ার পর্যায়ে কিন্তু বাংলাদেশ দল এখন আর নেই, আপনার কী মনে হয়?
রকিবুল: তা ঠিক। এটা আসলে ভাগ্য। আমি চাই, দলের জন্য বড় ইনিংস খেলতে, কিন্তু ৩০-৪০ করে আউট হয়ে যাচ্ছি। আশা করি সামনে এ সমস্যা কাটিয়ে উঠতে পারব।

এই প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচটাকে কীভাবে দেখছেন?
রকিবুল: খুব বেশি কিছু ভাবছি না বা চাপ নিচ্ছি না। আমার স্বাভাবিক খেলাটাই খেলার চেষ্টা করব।

নির্বাচকদের একজন আকরাম খানের সঙ্গে দীর্ঘক্ষণ কথা বলতে দেখলাম...
রকিবুল: আমার ব্যাটিং নিয়েই কথা বলছিলেন, এই ছোটখাটো কিছু টেকনিক্যাল দিক নিয়ে। আর উত্সাহ দিলেন, বললেন দল থেকে বাদ পড়ার জন্য যেন মনোবল না হারাই। অনেক সুযোগ আসবে, এসবই আর কি!

অনেকের অভিযোগ, আপনার ব্যাটিংটা একটু ধীরগতির, বর্তমান সময়ের জন্য ঠিক মানানসই নয়। আপনার কী মনে হয়?
রকিবুল: আমার তা মনে হয় না। যারা এ রকম বলে, তাদের চিন্তা-ভাবনায় ভুল আছে, নয়তো তারা ক্রিকেটটা পুরোপুরি বোঝে না। আমি সব সময় কন্ডিশন এবং দলের অবস্থা বুঝে ব্যাটিং করার চেষ্টা করি। যখন দু-তিনটি উইকেট পড়ে যায় তখন আক্রমণাত্মক ব্যাটিং করে উইকেট থ্রো করে আসাটা নিশ্চয়ই বুদ্ধিমানের কাজ হবে না। বরং দু-একটি জুটি গড়ে দলের অবস্থা ভালো হলে আবার রানের গতি বাড়ানো যায়। আর আমাদের দলের পরিকল্পনাটাই এ রকম, দলে সবারই কিছু নির্দিষ্ট ভূমিকা আছে। ধরে খেলার দরকার হলে ধরে খেলি, প্রয়োজনে হাত খুলে খেলতেও পারি।

গত কিছুদিনে যেমন খেলেছেন, প্রথম দিকে কিন্তু আপনি এর চেয়ে আরেকটু হাত খুলে খেলতেন?
রকিবুল: আসলে বেশির ভাগ সময়ই আমাকে এমন অবস্থায় নামতে হয়েছে, যখন বেশ কিছু উইকেট পড়ে গেছে, তাই একটু ধরে খেলতে হয়েছে। সেট হওয়ার পর অনেক সময়ই ইনিংসটাকে টেনে নিতে পারিনি, পারলে হয়তো স্ট্রাইকরেট পুষিয়ে দেওয়া যেত।

অনেক জোরে মারতে পারেন বলে নাকি সতীর্থরা আপনাকে ফ্লিনটফ বলে ডাকে?
রকিবুল: অনুর্ধ্ব-১৯ দলে আমাদের যখন প্র্যাকটিস হচ্ছিল, তখন একবার ছয় মারার প্র্যাকটিস হচ্ছিল। সেই সময় অনেকগুলো ছয় মেরেছিলাম। এ জন্য তখন থেকেই সবাই ফ্লিনটফ বলে ডাকে।

শোনা যায় কোচ কেমি সিডন্স আপনাকে একটু বেশি পছন্দ করেন বলেই নাকি এত সুযোগ পাচ্ছেন?
রকিবুল: দেখুন, শুধু আমাকে নয়, জেমি আমাদের প্রতিটি ক্রিকেটারকেই অনেক পছন্দ করেন, সবাইকেই অনেক ভালোবাসেন। কোচ হিসেবেও ও দারুণ। বিশেষ করে আমরা ব্যাটসম্যানেরা অনেক উপকৃত হয়েছি ওর কাছ থেকে, অনেক টেকনিক্যাল বিষয় শিখেছি।[/বাংলা]

The team has only one specialist opener, so Saghir should fill in as a makeshift option.

if ash thinks he's a performing player anything like tamim, shakib etc then there really is something wrong with his head. as far as playing a lot of good innings for BD, well he's played some good innings, but relative to the chances he's been given he's done poorly. the worst thing to here was that if he does well in this match they think he can comeback to the test team. adding onto everything, ashraful mate, it's not jsut your gameplan, your game has gone to crap and it will take more than a couple of days to fix it properly.

Not really. In last 18 months, his ODI average (against G7) is as good as those of Tamim and Shakib.

And yes, he is still they guy who turned out to be the difference between win and lose for most of the time for Bangladesh.

However, the Test team is a different story.

i can see for the first time gowza is frustrated about ashraful.
yes, i think he needs long rest and need consultations about his batting. he needs to find out where is his lacking?

as far as ODI cricket goes, maybe he has the numbers backing him but his game is still a mess. but test cricket is the most important format, he said he can get back there with one good performance in this match. what ash needs to do is fix his game, we don't want the same old inconsistent ashraful to comeback to the national team, we want an improved version and that doesn't happen over night.

shakib and tamim perform in every format, ash is performing in one, so i would not say he's a performing player like tamim and shakib, maybe in one format but not overall.

That may be because he was forced to bat from the wrong position half of the time. Here is the list of innings he played in last 8 months from #4 - http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/55988.html?batting_positionmax1=4;batting_position min1=4;batting_positionval1=batting_position;class =2;filter=advanced;opposition=1;opposition=2;oppos ition=3;opposition=5;opposition=6;opposition=7;opp osition=8;orderby=runs;player_involve=24667;spanmi n1=01+Oct+2008;spanval1=span;team=25;template=resu lts;type=batting;view=innings

thats the best decision, this time we need lots of batting practice. hope Bd can bat full 2 days. and score some big runs. looking forward to rokibul--- he has big chances of coming back in test squad.

his form was not that bad but if u compare with tamim, shakib, mushfiq and riad---yes below average. hope rokibul and ash returns soon.

ya he has to convert those 30-40 to 70-80 off of 170-180 balls..but that does require a lot of skill 2 play that many deliveries..lets see if the rock can show his skills here..

He thinks he bats based on the condition and it is wiser to graft rather than do power hitting if team is struggling due to top order failure. He thinks his batting in two tests against India was the main reason of his seclusion from the team. Also he is getting out after making around 30/40 runs which should be prolonged to 50+ as now demand from fans has extended a lot. He also thinks those he think he is not an ODI material do not really understand cricket at all. He believes Jamie is a great coach and very supportive to players, mostly he seems to have no grudge for his drop out. The huge amount of sixes he hit during U-19 practice gave him the nick name Flintoff of which he seemed to be well proud of.

i think we have some clear examples of polar opposites in our team. ash/tamim is on one end of the spectrum who leaves no ball untouched, on the other hand guys like rock/imrul can only play in the comfort zone of tuk tuk cricket... a good player imo should be able to switch gears comfortably.

except that 313*, rakibul has only one other century in 32 FC matches and only 10 half century. and only 33 average. a player who can play long innings should have more 50s and 100s and average over 40 in FC match

well i use to be a fan of raqibul but in his test career to date he's proven that he has much difficulty sighting the ball early enough, the england attack in this practice match isn't anything special so it really doesn't tell us that much imo, however if broad and onions are out then the english attack for the test matches won't be so good and maybe raqibul could be of use. but if mushy is made to be a specialist batsman then he should bat at #4 and we still need a #3, i don't think raqibul should bat at #3 in tests, not with what he's shown to date in his test career.

He seems to have a cool head, compared to most of the other players. At least very few of his dismissals are due to crazy shots and wild swipes. I think he has the ability to play long inning, all he needs is a little bit of confidence. If he scores a ton today, hopefully that will give hime some confidence.

I guess Aftab or Junaed will bat at No. 3. It is too early to promote Mahmud at that place. And for Mushi, he will be keeping so he would probably want to bat at 5 or 6. Probably they are going to drop Naeem to accomodate Rok in the test line-up.

rok has the temperament he just has trouble figuring out what the ball is going to do, thus he doesn't get out to a rash shot but simply just gets outplayed.

except that 313*, rakibul has only one other century in 32 FC matches and only 10 half century. and only 33 average. a player who can play long innings should have more 50s and 100s and average over 40 in FC match

in 14 test innings only 1 half century. thats the sad part. average below 20.

wishing him the best for the future

Players like Rokib worth investing some exposures unlike some other who will remain the same after playing 100+ test match.

I guess Aftab or Junaed will bat at No. 3. It is too early to promote Mahmud at that place. And for Mushi, he will be keeping so he would probably want to bat at 5 or 6. Probably they are going to drop Naeem to accomodate Rok in the test line-up.

naeem hasn't even been in the test line-up. from what i've read in the NCL final match only jahurul looks close to being ready so i guess if we're going to try someone knew it should be jahurul. honestly i'd prefer someone new to aftab or junaid, neither deserve a test spot. i agree that riyad should'nt be moved up to 3, highest he should bat atm is #4 but i'd prefer mushy at 4.

Reached the hundred by pulling Tredwell through midwicket. 150 balls, 181 mins, 14 x 4, 3 x 6
Some lusty late blows, and that's a superb hundred for Raquibul. Richly deserved, and he's in the Test team, surely

i think the axe helped him to regroup his thoughts.

now just hope he carries this form into the test matches. just hope he does not get back to the 20-30 mode again.

congratz raqibul

What up Bangies. Looks like the Rock has finally cooked something nice, but whether he should be in the Test team is a different question. Maybe he should.

The A team still sucks though. Ashraful 1? Haha!

all i want is him to bat until the end of the innings or at least 200 balls, no matter if the SR is 0 or 200.

18 or 21, may be 16 of those runs came from edges past WK or slip.......

anyway good to see him in positive mood.

have u read his interview on Prothom-alo today ????

So those who are watching this live, how did Rock look overall? A hundred is always special, but I'm interested to know if he was comfortable at the beginning and whether there were any obvious weaknesses on display.

Apart from Rok, others were not so impressive. I am dissapointed by the poor show from Junaed and Mehrab Jnr., not to mention Mr. Ash.
