View Full Version : Team combination for Test series: What do you like to see?

We have seen the pitches. We have seen our opponent's strength and weaknesses in these pitches. What would be the best lineup combination?

Batsmen + Alrounder (spinner) + Alrounder (pacer) + WK + Spinners + pacers

This is mine. Since spinners are bowling from the over 3-4, we can live with just one pacer in two tests series. Pacers wouldn't get that many wickets anyways on these pitches. His/their primary job should be taking the shine of the new ball. Even Shahadat:

4 Batsmen + 3 Alrounder (spinner) + 1 WK + 2 Spinners + 1 pacers?
1. Tamim
2. Imrul
3. Zunaed
4. (wait and see the practice match)
------------- 5. Shakib
------------- 6. Riyad
------------- 7. Naeem
------------------------------------- 8. Mushi
--------------------------------------------------- 9. Enam Jr.
--------------------------------------------------- 10. Shuvo
----------------------------------------------------------------- 11. Shafiul/Rubel.

By the way, Mushi should come before Naeem, and Shuvo before Enam.

I voted for #3, I assuming you meant 1 spinner and 2 pacer (otherwise player count is 12)

Tamim
Imrul
Junaed
Mushfiq
Sakib
Riyad
Aftab
Naeem
Shuvo
Shafiul
Rubel

Aftab could be replaced given someone's extraordinary performance in the practice match.

I'm not entirely sure which one to vote for as I don't know who you've classed as an alrounder and who as a spinner.

My Team:

1. Tamim Iqbal
2. Imrul Kayes
3. Juniad Siddique
4. Mahmudullah
5. Naeem Islam
6. Shakib al Hasan
7. Mushfiqur Rahim
8. Suhrawadi Shuvo
9. Abdur Razzak
10. Shafiul Islam
11. Rubel Hossain

3 batsman + 4 alrounders + 1wk + 1 spinner + 2 pacers

My question is, will Aftab be left alone for the test series after his batting performance against England in the 3rd ODI?

Yes!! One spinner on #3 and two pacers.

Request to Mods: Can you edit the poll questions? Also the last option don't count to 11. :( It should be 3 alrounders (spinners) + 1 alrounder (pacer)

No Razzak and No Aftab in the test. RazzaK is not a test material, we have seen enough. Aftab is not anything material. His last 46 does not count after flopping so many times.
And no Enamul Jr. I would rather like to see Shuvo playing in the test. Please bring some new faces like Faisal, Juhurul and Forhad.
Although Imrul is doing fine in ODI, I dont think he is a test material. His domestic performace is pretty good in List A, but really poor in first class match.

we desperately need a wicket keeper. at this point we shouldn't care weather he can hold a bat or not, as long as he can keep, we should put him in the team.

i dont want to see Imrul, Zunaeed and Aftab playing together in the top order. only one can be played.

also, please no Razzak. we need him in odi. his carrer will be ruined if he plays test match again. umpire will have more time to observe him, and any fault they find, he will be reported

aqib javed praised highly abt Pavel abt his batting. i am not sure how good a wicket keeper he is. we can play mushy in the top order.i have noticed whenever mushy does bad in keeping, he fails in batting as well. it will be good for his carrer if bcb decides to play him as a batsman only

By the way, Mushi should come before Naeem, and Shuvo before Enam.

That's my line-up, now I can see three scenarios:

1. No. 4 can be Aftab, as he looked good today..though you may say one match doesn't count. But I liked the way he played today, so he can come no. 4 and Mushy no. 5 and the rest starting from Shakib are pushed down.

2. And if Aftab doesn't play, I would put Mushy in Number 4 and would like to see a new WK batsman for number 8.

3. And if someone does really well in the practice match, he can come at no. 5 (Mushy no. 4) and the rest starting from Shakib are pushed down.....or, the new player replaces Naeem, given that we have a new WK at 8.

Lol, dunno. I'm stil pissed :mad:

March 5, 2010, 03:54 PM
it's tough to figure out the test line-up atm. what are peoples thoughts on mushy batting at #3 (without the gloves)? we need better #2s and #3s in tests and if mushy bats at 3 then we can have and play naeem, riyad, shakib and shuvo in their correct places and include a specialist keeper. for example:

1 tamim
2 ?
3 mushy
4 riyad/naeem/shakib
5 ditto
6 ditto
7 shuvo/keeper
8 shuvo/keeper
9 - 11 the other bowlers (combo depends on the conditions).

if mushy doesn't bat at 3 i wouldn't mind see farhad or maybe jahurul being given ago, but jahurul should maybe be tried as the 2nd opener.

Reason is, sakib can bowl for continuous session same as two SLA alone, since it is test. Rather one leg spinner and off spinner to try and establish young player in the home soil for future. It will give us 9 decent batsman.

saqlain is unlikely to be called; in any case we have 3 specialist spinners and they can bowl through the day and thus there is no need for a 4th spinner; i wud still stick with two pace bowlers as often one bowler may not find his rhythm

March 7, 2010, 11:48 AM
I reall dont want to see another wicket as slow as the ones used in the ODI's. I would much rather see the ones that were used against India. THose wickets were good because they had turn in Day four and five and it had something for the pacers.
So if that type of pitch is used, i would like to see Rubel, Shafiul, Sakib, Riyad, Naeem, and another spinner as the main bowlers. Shafiul and Rubel are toothless on the really slow wickets.

Whatever we do, we should take just one pacer. Please be brave this time.

My team (second time I am making team)

Openers:
Tamim Iqbal: Automatic choice
Imrul Kayes: I would say this test should be last chance for test. Play as ODI specialist if you cannot convert your starts to at least 50 in tests.

No .3
Rokibul Hasan - We need a cool head like him at no 3.

Middle Order:
Mushfiqur Rahim: Automatic choice, VC, and our best test batsmen should come at 4.
Shakib Al-Hasan: Automatic choice, C.
Mahmudullah Riyad: I hope he can replicate his performance of last two test series. Hope Shak should use his bowling more.
Nayeem Islam: We need mentally tough blokes like him in the test squad.

Spinners:
Mehrab Hossain Jnr: He can play as a spinner only. His batting is a plus.
Abdur Razzaq: It will be silly leave him out after his ODI performance.
Saqlain Sajib: Trump Card

Pace Bowler:
Rubel Hossain: We can only afford one pace bowler given the current situation.



In this way, we can have 8 batsmen :D, six spinners :D.

After seeing Tradwell today, if we do not take at least one specialist spinner aside Shakib, it will be mistake of the century. I would say take two specialist spinner aside Shakib.

i know naeem is more of a lower middle order batsman (5/6) but i'm really tempted to play him at 3 (ahead of junad, ash, aftab, raqibul), mushy at 4, shakib at 5, riyad at 6, dhiman at 7 and then 4 bowlers. you could go with just 3 specialist bowlers but then one of mushy/riyad/shakib/naeem would be batting at #7 and i think all of them are better than that, plus BD could do with an extra specialist bowler.

This would be my team

Tamim Iqbal-Automatic choice, our best opener yet and has 2 perform in order for us 2 stand a chance against England

Zunaed Siddique-Yes this is pretty questionable but sadly it seems he is our best option up at the top as imrul has just not cut it for us in tests, has been part of tamims crucial partnerships and his 5 half centuries in 14 tests and 27 innings is just 2 hard 2 ignore, he should be the opener alongside tamim

Raqibul Hasan-He might not be the best option up at the top but honestly who else do we have at the top? Maybe Naeem but honestly is it a good idea giving a guy who never played up at the top for the national team a chance at #3 in tests? Would want to try 2 try him at #3 in ODIs before putting him here in tests. Aftab is just not a long term solution here, Nafees still has 2 work on his technique and Ash is just completely out of form and needs 2 play more domestic cricket, on the other hand roqibul does have the temperament and the responsibility 2 play at the most crucial position

Mushfiqur Rahim-I would put him at #3 if he was our specialist batsman but being a wicketkeeper, he should not be at #3, has the temperament, application and the shots in the book 2 be a top order batsman, he's definitely wasted down the order and needs to be up the order if he is going to give us the important runs..

Mahmudullah Riyad-I think he is at best when he is at #5..currently he is just playing 2 low in the order and then just comes 2 late 2 depend on him, Has temperament, application and shots in the book, has made a very good impression so far in tests and hope he continues the solid form..very important for him 2 deliver
Naeem Islam-Needs to be given chances in tests..has the title of chokka Naeem but he is way more then just chokka Naeem, has 5 FC centuries and an average of about a 37 in FC..needs to play low before getting tested up at the top, think he should be a regular from now on in tests..

Shakib Al Hasan-It is controversial putting him this low but in my opinion he should be batting at #7 or 8, he is way 2 important of a bowler 4 us to be depended on as a batsman as well..also can play his natural game by giving us a quick 50 runs after the top order shows their grittiness and gives us the runs we need..he is our most lethal and consistent bowler as of yet and really needs to be picking up wickets against the english batsmen who are suspect at best with spin

Sohrawardi Shuvo-Known as a wicket taking machine in FC's and would love to see how he performs there..was pretty impressed with him in ODIs and will eventually turn in2 a threat..needs 2 flight the ball a little more and slow the ball up if he wants get wickets..also a very handy batsman down the order and can give the extra 15-20 runs at the end of the innings

Shafiul Islam-Has great potential and arguably has been the find of the year 4 us..have been very impresses with his line and length along with his pace..with time he will become a very lethal bowler for us in tests..has been 2 expensive but have to give the befenit of the doubt as he has played on very flat pitches..

Saqlain Sajib-Has been the highest wicket taker and in my opinion deserves a test call up since the English are very suspect with spin..will give us a strong option alongsides Shuvo and Shakib..better option in my opinion then Shahadat..

Rubel Hossain-Very promising bowler with his vicious pace..with experience he will improve his economy rate and will eventually be our best pacer for years to come..should be able 2 give some trouble 2 the english batsmen if his line and length are decent..

I think this is honestly the best team we can make and the best shot 2 give the english a hard time..

We have seen the pitches. We have seen our opponent's strength and weaknesses in these pitches. What would be the best lineup combination?

Batsmen + Alrounder (spinner) + Alrounder (pacer) + WK + Spinners + pacers

This is mine. Since spinners are bowling from the over 3-4, we can live with just one pacer in two tests series. Pacers wouldn't get that many wickets anyways on these pitches. His/their primary job should be taking the shine of the new ball. Even Shahadat:

4 Batsmen + 3 Alrounder (spinner) + 1 WK + 2 Spinners + 1 pacers?
1. Tamim
2. Imrul
3. Zunaed
4. (wait and see the practice match)

------------- 7. Naeem
------------------------------------- 8. Mushi
--------------------------------------------------- 9. Enam Jr.
--------------------------------------------------- 10. Shuvo

if mushy is going to bat top 4 then we have to bring in a specialist keeper imo, it's too difficult long term to have him bat in the top 4 and also keep wicket in tests. naeem should be in the line-up ahead of ash, aftab, junaid for sure (unless you swap imrul for junaid). reckon it should be a fight between rok and naeem for the remaining batting spot. we should def take 2 pacers into the match, one is just not enough.

No Razzaq in place of Enamul Jr and no Enamul Jr in place of Razzak. Razzaq is not a test material, we have seen enough of his test bowling. Enamul: there are much better players than Enamul at this moment.
No Aftab in test please. He cannot survive in ODI, how can someone think about including him in test.

This is easy. No Aftab in test please.
And no Razzak in test. He has played 5 tests, took only 7 wickets with average of 80. Do you really want him in test?
I am not even in favor of playing Imrul in test. He is fine in ODI, but his first class stats is not good enough to try him in test.

As Aftab is serious now a days and found his touch last match a bit he should be picked.

Also A. Razzak should be picked. The myth of his being only ODI bowler cost us a lot. Like Rafique we should not lose him in Tests in home.

Naeem should be included in the team also. He can turn the ball quite sharply as well as he is a decent batsman with proper technique.

I would have Razzak in Enam's place. Razzak looked like his usual self after getting KP. Also he gets more drift and turn nowadays, can be useful in tests.
Also I would like to see Shafiul in Rubel's place. Rubel did get a 5fer recently, but his econ rate was well over 5. And I think Shafiul will be a better pick in these conditions.

It will be hard to leave out Razzak after this one day series.

For some reason, I think Aftab will be picked and he will come out really good. He has been trying really hard or playing sensibly last few matches..... he was run out mostly... and one stupid shot.. but I think he is determined to fight to stay....and I think he will come out good.. atleast for couple of matches...

I totally agree with you. He played really well in the last ODi and I think Mushi was responsible for his out. He is lazy but I always thought when he times well, he is really good to watch. IMO, he is better than junaed.

I want to go with this team as well, but knowing Siddons for a while I am sure he will accomodate one additional batsman (probably Ash) at the expense of either Shuvo or Razzak.

If Aftab doesn't do well in England at #3 then I would like to see him bat at #7. He has the 2nd highest strike rate, just behind Mash and he holds the record for highest number of sixes as well. I think this place could suit him in the powerplay overs.

Yeah I agree. We all know Ash will be included in the Test team, which is a shame, because having a Razzak-Shuvo-Shakib combination bowling consistently at England will yield wickets. Rotating them will keep the bowlers fresh. We've got a much better chance if we try and take the 20 wickets, rather than include a batsman who might not even get into double figures in both innings.

March 8, 2010, 12:04 PM
Junaid should not be included in the team. He may have scored 37 but at a SR 32.17 and got out. He is unable to propel his score into something 50+, which can not be a good prospect for BD. I will rather give Ash a chance if he scores 50+ run with ease in the practice match.

Imrul
Raqibul

Ash?

Junaed scored those runs and doesn't deserve to be in the team. Agreed. SR do not matter so that stats has no meaning. Now Ash scored 0, 21, 0, 0, 1, 15* = 37 total in 6 outings averaging 7+. He deserves to be in the team. Ei logic ami bujtey parlam na.

March 8, 2010, 01:09 PM
Personally, I'd like to see Imrul open with Tamim. Yes his record in Tests aren't good, but he's been playing long innings in the shorter format and I'm hoping he'll be able to replicate some of that here.

Don't be fooled by Zunaed's one-off 50 against India. Good if he can do it again (i.e. play a 200-ball inning), but as far as I'm concerned he's a loser. Of course, he has age on his side and can become a long-term asset later on and all that crap.

auntu
March 8, 2010, 01:35 PM
I don't see any threat about Imrul's place in the team. He just needs some time to settle. I'm sure this coming tests he would scores some big innings.

al Furqaan
March 8, 2010, 01:35 PM
the XI (even if Ash hits a majestic double century, not out today):

1) Tamim - will score his 3rd test hundred this series
2) Imrul - for the same reasons as ATMR stated, despite his limitations if he can just give us 50+ opening p'ships we'll be good

3) Naeem - lets see what he's made off
4) Raqibul - wtg, but lets hope he can cope with england's first choice attack (sans Anderson)
5) Shakib
6) Rahim
7) Riyad - i think he's less suited than Naeem for a top order slot, keep hitting tons, then we'll promote

8) Shuvo - ultimately we need to find who is best for 5-day cricket between him and Saqlain
9) Shahadat - good in home conditions
10) Shafiul - deserves a shot, but might just not be ready for 5 day cricket yet
11) Rubel - i expect him to curve it like waqar at 90 mph

12) Junaid - are subs allowed to field in the slips?

** why 3 pacers? unless you want to field enamul, razzak, or saqlain we've got 2.5 spinners in the side already (sakib, shuvo, naeem + riyad). but ideally we could drop a pacer for another spinner...all depends on which bowler is better suited to take wickets. given's england's weakness, maybe we should include another SLA just to give Pietersen some nightmares.

***Ash shouldn't be in our test side. should he do well in the 3-dayer, recall him to the ODI team, but he should sit out of our test side until he changes as a player (i.e indefinitely).

Tiger Manc
March 8, 2010, 01:41 PM
I would prefer Riyad to just concentrate on his batting. He could be a real gem for us in tests and hopefully if he performs in this test series then he should get promoted to #5. Although Shahadat is much better at home then he is away, I'd like to use 3 spinners and put the squeeze on the English batsman. Pietersens going to have nightmares.

I know they'll probably not play Nayeem at #3 and I know this pace attack is high-risk and I know 3 SLAs might be overkill. But this I think is the best we've got.

According to them both Zunaed and Aftab are in the team. Ashraful can get in the team but not in the playing XI. Only on second test depending on how Aftab and Zunaed plays there is a chance.

The line up is,
TIqbal, IKayes, JSiddique, RHasan, AAhmed, SHasan, MRiyad, MRahim, SHossain, ARazzak/Shafiul, RHossain.

would def prefer naeem or raqib at #3 over aftab, junaid or ash atm. as far as shahadat is concerned, he's still not what he use to be, better line but still not a great one and his pace still isn't as up there as it was and he just just move the ball around enough to trouble good batsmen often enough. would probably prefer shafi or robin or someone like sajidul or subashis over anyone else, even though rubel has the pace i don't think he troubles the batsmen as often as the guys i just mentioned which is why if we went with just one pacer i wouldn't want to pick rubel.

Shahadat is actually much better on the slow low pitches at home. But he probably shouldn't tour outside the subcontinent until he has his head fixed.

Shahadat is actually much better on the slow low pitches at home. But he probably shouldn't tour outside the subcontinent until he has his head fixed.

is this the current shahadat that's still low on pace and doesn't have the greatest line/length? shahadat in top form is a good pick, but if you take out the 5fer against india he hasn't been anything special for a good while.
