so think the NCL performers are in the A team, not national discards who will never ever make the squad.

Bangladesh A(FC):
Johirul Islam
Asif Ahmed
Nazimuddin
Alok Kapali*
Farhad Hossain
Shuvagoto Hom
Dhiman Ghosh+
Mahbubul Alam
Robiul Islam
Shuvashish Roy
Saqlain Shajib

Dollar Mahmud
Elias Sunny
Shuvashish Roy

Looks like whatever Faisal Hossain does he will not be recalled by the selectors so I'd give the spot to someone who has a chance to play International cricket.

So Johurul isn't going to England then?

Why is he even playing in this test match ? What was the purpose in giving someone a test cap before making him play a few ODI's. Aftab didn't do that bad a job in Chittagong and his fielding was excellent !

Imrul, 11 tests, highest score 33, average 13. Say no more.

where is mahmudul and anamul ? Alok and Nazimuddin have already been given enough chances. "A" team should not include a player who has not got a prospect of making into national team. We need to fast track young players to fill the no 3 or 4 batting slot of national team.

That was the team I would like to see. The teams have not been announced yet.

where is mahmudul and anamul ?
May I ask what the point of having an Academy and U19 team is? If we have the same players playing for all three squads then what is the point? We need to develop as many players as possible.

Nazimuddin has always been a consistent middle-order batsman at FC level. He smashed a double century recenty. I'd really like to test him. And if Aftab and SN can get a chance then Alok deserves one as well at least in the A team.

I am not calling for all U19 players to be fast tracked.

The point is that tour of A team should be utilised so that young players who have potential to get into national team gain valuable experiences. How many of you think that Alok will get back to national team? I don’t.

So he is just occupying and wasting resources. We need to remember that quality of our domestic first class cricket matches is not that great. The only way our young players can be prepared well to play for the national team if we give them enough exposure to international cricket.

And, the age is not a bar, in fact, many superstars in world cricket had debut in Test cricket, as early as at the age of 16. Our Mushy is also a good example.

Johurul may be an option for WK. First match Duck should e taken with soft heart. Many world class batsman started their carrier with a Duck. Stat show the batsman who start with a duck has higher percentage of being a good batsman then who start with a century!!

Gowza
March 25, 2010, 07:21 AM
personally i'd keep ash out of the A team, and shuvagoto would be in my starting XI. i'd prob pick mithun ali as the keeper (or dhiman) just to give him experience sajidul, emon or maybe robin as the extra pacer in the squad (not that dolar is a bad choice and i agree with subashis and alauddin). would be thinking about farhad hossain, shamsur rahman, marshall ayub and nazmus sadat (yes out of form but good one-day record). agree with nasir, sabbir and shuvo (if he's not with the national team, if he is then pick mahudul hasan) as the allrounders.

they could go with anamul haque for the keeper spot but why not give him more time to develop? we really haven't put that much effort into mithun yet so may as well give him ago first. wouldn't be surprised if noor hossain got picked though.

jahurul to be in the team if he isn't with the national team.

Yes Eshen i liked your ODI team but some thoughts from my side:
1.Jahurul is good for longer version is he good for short version?It seems to me he is a bit slow batsman.Same goes for Nazimuddin his List A record is not good at all.How about SN in place of any one of them?
2.Alauddin is a very young player he is probably under 18.Has he groomed properly?How about Rabiul Islam of Khulna or Dollar in place of him?
3.How about Nazmul Hossain Milon
4.Are not you interested to keep Ash out there?

1. Both Jahurul and Nazimuddin has DPL and A-team performances to show they are worthy one-day players.
2. Babu showed his worth in the one-day practice matches against England. Robiul, on the other hand, so far seems to be a poor choice for one-day matches.
3. Milon does not worth much as a bowler. He does not bat high enough to consider him for a specialist batsman slot either.
4. Nah, Ash is where he deserved to be - in the national squad.

Eshen
March 30, 2010, 07:19 PM
Looks like Jahurul and Zunaed swapped places in the T20I team. But I guess Zunaed won't be around either as the England tour closely follows the T20I WC. IMO, Farhad Hossain should be tried as an opener in the one-day series.

Saqlain will prolly be the main spinner of the team now that Shuvo is gone. Elias Sunny should be the back up spinner.

So, my changed team for the one-day series -

Farhad Hossain

Real test of selection by
Bishwajit Roy

The national selectors are in a tight spot with the selection of the Bangladesh A and Academy teams as both sides have international commitments at the same time.

South Africa A and Academy team are expected to arrive in Dhaka on April 20. The second-string South Africa side will play two four-dayers against Bangladesh A while South Africa Academy team will play two four-dayers, three one-day matches and two T20s against GP-BCB National Cricket Academy (NCA).

West Indies A team will also arrive in the first week of May to play a tri-nation one-day tournament, involving the hosts and South Africa A and after that they will play two four-dayers against their Bangladeshi counterparts.

But also during this duration, the national team will be on duty in the West Indies and England to play the Twenty20 World Championships and Test matches respectively.

As all three teams have their schedule tangled, the selection policy will be virtually exposed because there has not been the existence of the A team and Academy team in a true sense.

Actually a very limited number of players are always picked to make the teams; few of whom are left out of the national team and some same old 'new prospects'.

"We are working on the teams but in reality it's a very difficult job this time as we have to prepare at least six teams," admitted chief selector Rafiqul Alam.

This time there was no alternative for the selectors other than to widen their area of selections. And to do that they have to focus on the domestic circuits but the question has been raised about how serious the selectors were with the domestic competitions.

Without any question, the selectors must watch as many domestic games as possible but the fact was that the selectors watched only a few matches in this year's National Cricket League.

So the cold scorecard will be the only reliable source for the Rafiqul Alam-led selection panel when they go for some new faces in these back-up teams.

"It was not possible to watch the maximum number of National League matches as at that time there were international games at home," defended Rafiqul.

Was there any point to send all the selectors to one international match then?

"Actually there were some close contests and that's why we all saw those international matches," he replied.

Rafiqul however was not too worried with the shortage of the cricketers to make the two different teams.

"Right now the Academy has been running with twenty-two players but for making the team we have to adopt some new players. We will take some from Under-19 team and some new prospects," said Rafiqul.

"On the other hand the left out cricketers of the national team will definitely be considered for the A team," he concluded.

Seems a bit complicated, but they have most of the international cricketers who played in the ICL except Aftab, also Zunaid can be in the Academy team and they have some very good U/19 players.
I dont think that there will be short of cricketers for these tournaments, also, it is good exposure for these boys.
Feel sorry that Rokibal cannot play in these games as he is only allowed to play in domestic matches, but I feel that should shorten his ban and allow him to play.

This defnitely is a good opportunity for a lot of new comers to come in the lime light and show what they are capable of. I guess it's the OP that once posted his fav quote by a WI player once and it goes something like this, "A team's strength is not measured by the players who make it to the team but the one's that didn't."

i am hoping that Zunaid joins them end of May, but in the meantime, cant he play for the A team until he leaves for England?

there are soo many people that would jump at the chance to watch the domestic matches, why not make them selectors? at least they'd have better knowledge to make the selections than the current lot.

i'd have nasir, sabbir and subashis in the A team for sure. dhiman/mithun should be the A team keepers. rony, uttam, nazmus, jahurul (if he's not with the national team) should be the openers. middle order bats should be marshall, shamsur, shuvagoto, farhad, raqibul (if he's allowed) and i guess you'd include faisal, ash, aftab, alok, SN but tbh i'd prefer to give the newer young'uns the chance over those guys. spinners would be saqlain, nabil, saju datta, nur. pacers would be robin, dolar, subashis, sajidul, alauddin, robiul, talha, ziaur. allrounders would be nasir, sabbir, shuvo (if he's not with the national team), mahmudul hasan (but would prob have him in the academy team for now). unfortunately we still don't have any decent pacer allrounders coming through, there is saikat ali but i think he'd be best in the academy team for now.

Academy players would be shaker ahmed, saju datta, anamul haque, nadimuddin, asif ahmed, maybe ariful haque, saikat ali, mahmudul hasan, emon ahmed, abul hasan, maybe mahbubul karim, delwar hossain as a pacer allrounder prospect but i think he's already had one or two academy stints...

The more I think about it the more it pisses me off. He's basically just said that the selectors neglected the most basic part of their job description, ie. watching the players in the national talent pool, because they wanted to enjoy the 'close' contests.

Imagine if any of us used this as an excuse

'Have you finished with those reports? I need them by 5pm'
'Sorry, boss, can't do it. There's a close match on TV.'
'Ah, yeah, fair enough.'

anyway, i hope they do some good selections for the A team, won't be too happy if shuvagoto, sabbir and subashis miss out, nasir should be a 100% go and there are other players i want to see in the squad but if those 3 S's miss out and nasir then it will do my head in.

Yes this is horrible news our selectors do not watch domestic cricket.They like to watch international matches for enjoyment rather than watching domestic cricket?Really i was shocked by the news.Now they will select the team by watching some data on computers and will say that we have selected team according to potential rather than based on performance.Its shocking.How its possible to select A-Team,Academy team and U-19 team without watching them to play?

3.I think combination of the opening batsman will be a tough job.Rony seems to be a better short version player but i am sceptic about his longer version ability.Yesterday i saw Rony Talukder he was scoring runs but i was not impressed with his technique.He mostly depends upon hand eye co-ordination.I expected more technique from him.Though his reflex seems good.I am sceptic about his temperamet as well.It seems to me Rony is better for short version.
How about trying with Gazi Salauddin(Seems consistent performer) or Nadimuddin Mithu of academy?Or even SN?Really i ll miss Jahurul Islam here.IMO it was better idea to prepare him for tests against England by playing A team games rather than just a name in T20.

do you really want to give guys like SN, ash, aftab, alok etc A team chances now? imo they should go work on their games in domestic cricket and when they've improved down there then give them chances in the higher up teams, they're still the same players so no reason to give them these A team chacnes atm imo. rather give those spots to performing youngsters so they can get experience and develop further.

btw, decent call on gazi salahuddin, he's not the most consistent but by our standards he's not too bad.

i don't expect them to be selected again until they've actually fixed their games, proven it domestically, then proven it in A team. that doesn't just mean make scores, that means do it with an improved game because SN and aftab did do well in domestic one-dayers this season but clearly they're still not at international standard.

From my understanding, the boys will fly to England after the WC 20/20, whether they proceed or not to the next level. I think that they are playing ODIs first, then the test matches against England, and the tour does not end until the end of July and in between, there is the Asia Cup, so they should have about 20 National players in the pipeline.

IMO calling Kapali for the A team will be worthwhile specially in the one day games.

After playing in these matches and if he does well, Kapali might get a place in the ODI team for the Asia Cup, and maybe a place in the ODIs against England.
I still feel that he should not be dumped as some fans here think.
Anyhow, it is great to see these boys fighting it out for a place in the National team.

It would be a good plan to call him.
But I doubt he would play. He is actually avoiding these opportunity against foreign teams.
Probably lack of confidence or he is aware about his present condition.

I am sure that Zunaid will be picked to be in Test squad against England. He did make a century against England. I can see Rasel, Aftab and a few others returning to BD after the 20/20s, so they will get a chance to play in the A team against SA and WI.

Barbados all-rounder Jason Holder impresses former England coach Peter Moores (http://www.bcacricket.org/2010/articles.php?link=1761)

Moores, who was in Barbados as Head coach of Lancashire County Club for a two-week pre-season tour, said he was impressed with the bowling of six-footer Holder during the six-team Twenty20 championship at Kensington Oval. It featured four English County sides – Lancashire, Yorkshire, Essex and Derbyshire – along with a Barbados Select and Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) Division 1 champions, University of West Indies (UWI).

Speaking in an exclusive interview during live ball-by-ball Internet radio commentaries by Caritech Media Solutions (CMS) on the final day of the War of Roses match on Saturday, Moores praised the 18-year-old Holder, saying he has “great bounce, nice rhythm, his own action and plenty of talent”.

Holder, who is also the national Under-19 team captain, played for Barbados Select in the T20 championship.

“I’ll tell you who did impress me. The tall, young lad, named Holder. He bowled really well, a bit of bounce and also like he loved it. He was keen and buzzing and he bowled very well,” Moores said in the wide-ranging interview with veteran cricket journalist and commentator Keith Holder.

“He has got to fill out yet because he is only a young man but he has great bounce, nice rhythm and he’s got his own action.

“But he got the ball to do a little bit and he bowled intelligently. You know, Twenty20 cricket, though it’s an aggressive form of the game, you’ve got to think on your feet. He did that. He struggled a little bit at the end when he had to alter things at the death of the innings but he will learn that quickly and he looks like a young man who really wants to move on in the game. He’s got plenty of talent,” Moores asserted.

1.No SN?
I don't think he can make the cut as a top order batsman (1-3) and we currently got better middle order options
2.Will Rock will be eligible to play this match?I think it would be nice if we can make rock the captain.Don't see why he should not be eligible for A-team matches, BCB only banned him from national team matches.
3.I think combination of the opening batsman will be a tough job.Rony seems to be a better short version player but i am sceptic about his longer version ability.Yesterday i saw Rony Talukder he was scoring runs but i was not impressed with his technique.He mostly depends upon hand eye co-ordination.I expected more technique from him.Though his reflex seems good.I am sceptic about his temperamet as well.It seems to me Rony is better for short version.
How about trying with Gazi Salauddin(Seems consistent performer) or Nadimuddin Mithu of academy?Or even SN?Really i ll miss Jahurul Islam here.IMO it was better idea to prepare him for tests against England by playing A team games rather than just a name in T20.Salahuddin's techniques are even more horrible, SN does not make the cut as a top order batsman in my book anymore.

I agree, Rony seems to be better suited for shorter versions. But currently, he is the only worthy opening option I see out there.
4.I hope it will be a nice preparation game for Saqulain and Enam.I also hope so. Otherwise, dozens of SLAs are awaiting to take their places.
5.I have not seen Shuvasish how good is he?Is he better than Talha or Dollar?Or even Kamrul Islam?From what I have seen of Subhashis so far, he certainly looks better than Dolar and Talha do. Kamrul is a defensive left arm medium pacer, he has no prospect in longer version matches to begin with.

That's a brilliant decision to appoint him as the manager.
Why do you think like that?
He is a very good person and had a controlled life style all through.

There's a couple of names I was hoping to see there whom they haven't picked but they have a lot of talent in the West Indies at the moment. I can't wait to see how our bowlers fare against Kraigg Braithwaite. He's the future of West Indies cricket.

Strong West Indies A squad to tour Bangladesh (http://www.cricinfo.com/westindies/content/story/457229.html)

West Indies A have named a strong squad for their tour of Bangladesh, which includes two first-class games and a tri-series also involving South Africa A. Five players with international experience - Adrian Barath, Brendan Nash, Darren Bravo, Gavin Tonge and Lionel Baker - have been added to the squad which hosted the Zimbabweans till yesterday.

"The team played very well in the four-day match and the two T20 matches against Zimbabwe in Grenada," West Indies A coach Henderson Springer said. "This tour of Bangladesh is another opportunity for these young men to build on what they started.

"We will have some players joining the team who have already played at the international level - Nash, Barath, Bravo, Tonge and Baker - and the team will be able to benefit from their experience and knowledge. I am sure everyone will be trying to create an impression and get elevation to the highest level of the game."

The tour begins on May 4 with the tri-series at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. West Indies A will stay back after the final on May 15 to play two four-day games against the hosts at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan in Savar. The first game begins on May 15 while the second starts on the 21st.

Squad: Travis Dowlin (capt), Adrian Barath, Lionel Baker, Darren Bravo, Odean Brown, Kirk Edwards, Imran Khan, Brendan Nash, Justin Guillen, Nelon Pascal, Shane Shillingford, Devon Smith, Gavin Tonge, Chadwick Walton
