this is my Squad + Lineup:

Tamim
Zahurul(wk)
Siddique
Ashraful
Mahmudullah
Rahim(c)
Shakib
Shafiul
Shahadat
Rubel
Robiul
(assuming everyone is fit!)

Imrul +Naeem(horrifically out of form)(there is no point having in 8 batsmen when guys like Shahadat Hossain chips in 30 odd runs :clap: :Bravo: :MA'ShALLAH!: and your openers + top two batsmen combined score 30 odd runs...)


this should work on even flat pitch!


MY OPINION: win toss BOWL FIRST!


restrict them below 300, we have a reasonable chance! my battng lineup was selected based on current form, as much as i Despise Ashraful these days (just like T_E bhai, Fazal...) he is in decent touch along with Jahurul. I also Personally feel that Shakib needs a tiny break from captaincy...he has been under too much stress...so relieving him off a little responsibilites such as captaincy may help him concentrate more on his batting and bowling roles!

Mushfiqur Rahim will Insha'Allah make a fine captain, plenty of experience under his belt!.and NO it is not an insult to Shakib! we just want to relieve him a little bit!

It makes sense to have a batsmen a captain...allrounder captains have too much rice on their pate but too little space!

Nice OP. Shahadat'er nam ta beshi boro hoiye gasey. It should have been equal to Kayes!! Zunaed' er banan bhul. Mahmudullah'er 'h' missing!!

The order is just an opinion. I was just trying to keep Imrul and Razzak at the bottom. Thats all matters. ;) I was gonna go in Alpha order, but then Razzak and Imrul comes at top 2, so i was like screw it.

And i also know some of the players are out, but i needed 15 players to make the match up. And Eng only announced 12, so i kept those 3 any ways.

I like the line-up, except I'd keep Rahim as the keeper and Sakib as captain, long as he isn't feeling tired from the illness.

But what if Sakib isn't fit to play? Do we bring Razzak in, since he's a spinner? I suppose he's also scoring bit more than Naeem. I wouldn't get Razzak in, but then, I'm not the selector.

I put full trust in those pace bowlers...let's hope they deliver.

Oh, and Sakib can be our secret weapon, long as he has those scars. He can field at silly mid-off to be in batsmen's faces with the hideous scars and all..if there's not enough scars, he should get a make-up artist to put some on:-D :notworthy:
Its the only way we'll win one of these matches!

yah, right, i was wrong with the robiul one.

some times it becomes a bit sensitive if the spelling of names is not right.

u remember, monjurul islam the left arm seemer and manjarul islam (RIP)the SLA allrounder. monujrul and manjarul are different word meaning and different speeling and pronounciation. but in the end both were spelled and pronounced as Manjural, which has no significance.

Mentioning for the 2nd time in this thread, 30th time in BC sns I started to post. A keeper doesnt open in test. If Johurul keeps, he wont bat in top 6. If Musfiq keeps, he wont bat in top 6. Keepers dont bat in top 6/7 in test match.

Tamim wont play, so you have some new kid opening the batting w/o any match practice on a unknown weather.

With that long *** tail, we will be bowled out for 50 runs.

thats ur point of view and not mine. jahurul is also new. we have already seen the guys with match practice--how is their form, so definitely big no for imrul kayes and naeem, razzaq is also out (dont need and dont want to see0

so only possible option shamsur rahman

imrul-- worst than a new comer and off form
naeem--out of touch
shamsur--- new but recently in great form.


just hope shohrawadi shuvo was in the team, it could have balance the side.
if tamim out, i will definitely want shamsur or last choice naeem, but no imrul.

wkt keeper option--may be u r right but whoever is better keeper should keep and change their batting position, so in that case junaed might step up

will be happy with any combination, except--(imrul and razzaq)

That's not a point of view. It's a fact. A new uncapped kid, who only reached UK 2 days ago, without any match practice can not open in unknown condition. At least not in Test match in England. Jahurul is new, but he had match practice, and he showed that he can open. We dont know anything about the other guy.

And ya lets give a test cap to Shuvo. That guy can barely hold a bat and barely can bowl, barely played 1 or 2 ODI, he should play test right? He is not a test player. He hasnt proved anything in ODI yet. Let him prove himself. Getting a green baggy hat suppose to be something special. Not every 1 at random should get it.

shahadat is not the best batsman but he is consistent in recent days and atleast can contribute 30 runs and play 50 balls
because he scored few runs here and there, you cant expect him to score every time. We shouldnt have to rely on bowlers.

The guy averages a 27 with the bat and hit a century and a half..what the hell are you talking about that he cant hold a bat? The guy just has shown also in the last FC match that hes more then handy with the bat..also him getting so many FC wickets should he at least get a chance? Hes a much better FC player then razzak and should be in there and we should see if hes got the goods 4 test cricket..no question he shouldve been in there instead of razzak

Please. 2 words, Imrul Kayes. The superstar of NCL. Avg 13 in Int Test cricket.

All the good players avg. goes down by 10 when they come to Int cricket. 27 avg will be 10 in International cricket. So avg 27 isnt something to be proud of, specially in Bdesh FC. Go check out the Ozs. Some players avg over 50, and still dont get a chance.

He was the star of NCL? Really? He always averaged really low in NCL 4 dayers..dont know why he always plays tests..Imrul always sucked in FC cricket so I know he should not be playing test cricket but you were saying how shuvo cant hold a bat..I was just saying that the kid can actually a bat but of course hes nothing great..and how the hell can you say he can barely bowl? Go check his stats before saying senseless stuff like that..just because he didnt do great in 2 ODIs makes him a bad bowler all of a sudden?

As long as Imrul has got the waiters jacket properly fitted I will be happy ! Unlike many here, I have been an admirer of Siddons from the beginning. I liked the way he has dealt with Shakib's batting [ straightening the arc ], his perseverence with Junaid and he does have a good opinion of Rakibul [ despite Rok being a total idiot ]. However, his faith in Imrul beggars belief ! What does he see in him, I do not know ?

My team:

Tamim
Jahurul or Junaid
Junaid or Ashraful
Ashraful or Jahurul
Mahmudullah
Mushfiq
Shakib
Razzak
Shafiul
Robiul
Rubel

Yes, I have dropped Shahadat who would simply be run fodder at his pace. Yes, I have also included Razzak as we have to bowl many many overs and his batting is not too bad ! I would have preferred Naeem but Razzak just shaves it for this test particularly with Shakib fitness. I can't see him wheeling away 50 overs.

I see no place for Razzak - the pitch is not going to help and Razzak just isn't that good that he can take wickets in any wicket

Play 4 pacers instead - rotate them around if you want more overs. Shak, Riyad and Ash can help out in b/w. We need to learn to play and trust our pacers - if you don't give them this responsibility, they will never take it.

1) Remember that I opened a post saying that Rubel and Shafiul combination to be dismisses. Most of you opposed me, but look now, these two are PROSPERING a lot and Rubel my friend HAS much of a chance in the test series. Know look, Shafiul and Rubel are taking wickets everyball. And when they come to bat, they bat like Don Bradman

2) I used to keep on telling everyone that Shakib IS AN AWESOME CAPTAIN, and now look, the team has a 100% losing record against S8(Exclusive of WI fake team), UNDER HIS CAPTAINCY. Also we have lost all matches in this year.

3) I have everything for Naeem, that is the truth. But his batting temperament is pure awesome. I was telling everyone that Naeem was crap, but now look, everybody is interested to have him in the side anymore, not even in any form of the game. He is PURE AWESOME
I remember being told that I was completely wrong.

Both of them are very young and their skills are raw. How do you expect shaiful to start "Shining" already, he just started playing for bangladesh. With time they will improve. You might have wanted these two to be dropped, because you thought they would suck, well to be honest everyone of us knew they wouldn't do well because they were young, and like most young players they had to be given games to improve themselves. So dropping them would be pretty stupid considering the fact that they are two of the most promising pacers in the country.

Shakib is the right choice at the moment. We don't have such an impressive winning record because our team sucks. I'm not saying that shakib is the best captain in the world, he's just the best option we have right now. We won a few games with ashraful as the captain because he had mashrafe and shakib in the team when they were at their best. Shakib is more aggressive and thats exactly what we need.

Naeem can bat. He was just never given the opportunity to bat higher up the order. His temperment isn't too bad, its at par with most of our batsmen and his average is higher than most of our batsmen including ashraful.

shuvo took 10 wkts against WI-a and scored 66 runs

I do agree with you about how a player can play better in a specific format. In the case of shuvo he has done well (by bd standards) in the first class competitions however its vitally important for players to be introduced in to the international arena where they will be most comfortable and higher chances of success. Shuvo should be given a test match series in bangladesh and on spinner friendly tracks. Playing in english condtions suited to fast bowling and in hostile unfamilar lands will be extremely hard on him.

Just tell them to make themselves proud...not everyone gets to play at Lord's and if they perform well as a team here, they'll remember it forever. Tell them how much you wish you had this opportunity and that you would give anything to play here. I know I would.

Other thing is of course not to get too carried away with it (playing at Lord's)..this mainly applies to our pace bowlers.

dude, u r getting annoying, either u dont want to admit or u r arrogant or u dont have any knowledge abt our domestic players.

shuvo took 10 wkts against WI-a and scored 66 runs
2nd test--- already 4 wkt
he was among the highest wkt taker in 4 day matches in domestic and he can bat

so u think--a test player should get a chance in test match--after proving he can play ODI and T20?

I hear you, but the thing is; test cricket is the hardest cricketing arena. And being a Bangladeshi player, one never plays a competition which comes even close to Tests. So it's very hard for a player to walk into a test team and perform. New players are often given international exposure in the form of ODI/T20Is and then only are they sent to play tests.
I know Shuvo has very little to prove, but it's more about him finding his foot rather than proving he is capable. I hope to see him bowl in tandem with Shakib in near future.

for a batsmans point of view i feel TEST is hard to walk into. but as a bowlers perspective???

test should be the easiest.

in t20, field restrictions and batsman in aggressive mode. only 4 overs to prove urself if u start bad u may only bowl 1-2 over. same in ODI with powerplays and batsman still in aggressive mood. its harder as u may go for 8-10 runs per over ........

in tests, with no fielding restrictions and batsman in defensive mode its easy for a bowler to settle and also if things go wrong intially a bowler can come back later and bowl again and get lots of over in.

Shuvo needs bowling time in the pitch. But in t20 and odi he gets very little as batsman always tries to unsettle the new guy and he then never gets the ball again. but if playing a test match he may get 20-30 overs to bowl and that would be his best chance to show what he is capable of.

Averaging 27 in our FC system is not good at all.

Riyad doesn't have an FC average of 27. He has an average of 36.

What Riyad has to do with any of these?


well you claimed that our players average dip f10 runs rom their FC average after they start playing international cricket. So take a trip over to Cricinfo and find out Riyad's FC average and International average. Here i'll save you a trip. Riyad's FC average: 36.06. and Test average: 42.33. At one point that average of his was touching 50. That's what riyad has to do with this. This was the point I was trying to prove, not everything that comes through our domestic cricket is crap. Riyad had a ridiculous domestic season before he got picked in the test squad. and he continued on with that form after getting selected in the squad.

The players didnt seem very enthusiastic at all about the match, the high light of the day was Tamim, when I said jokingly dont be scared of the swinging ball to him

He waved his head non-nonchalantly 'Brother....I am not scared of anything'

Ashraful was just nodding when I was talking about cover drives with him, whilst we were swapping numbers.
and shakib just laughed cheekily when I said 'arm-balls' .

He's probably thinking to himself, 'I dont do those on purpose.. :D'

Riyad just kept running around filling his face with food, mushy was busy talking to a guy about hitting up a night club. On second thoughts I should have talked to Robin about how he grips the ball.

And shafiul and rubel was just standing in the corner, not...really doing anything. Maybe if my shudho Bangla was better, I could have engaged them better. But I just think they hate talking to fans. I felt dissappointed, that only ash talked to me properly. And only because he was the only player to know me, beforehand. I think they were just alienated and thought they were expected to talk in English all the time. I dont blame them.

May 25, 2010, 07:45 AM
I would rate Shafi close to Mitch and much higher than Malinga right now, Dilscoop.

Reason: Malinga is off-form, and he can be expensive. Mitch is good, but if a batsman gets on top of him, he leaks like a broken tap. If you, and the captain, put as much faith on Shafi, and in fact Rubel and Rabiul as Malinga and Mitch's captain&coach, we would see them performing at a level much closer to Mitch, Ameer and Malinga than most of you can dream of....by corollary, if Mitch/malinga played for Bangladesh, and the captain was sakib and the coach still siddons, we would hear the two of them whinge about how indisciplined they both are and that they can never be as good as Ameer and Bollinger.. hope you get my point.

The level of support and trust in our ordinary spinners at present (barring one of course) is ridiculous..razzak and naeem do not qualify as test spinners of any sort, and riyad is still developing. Have to say, Hauritz and Benn (Windies) rule over them.

May 25, 2010, 07:50 AM
And ppl, stop complaining about umpiring now...they only come into play if a game is really close...do you think this will be the case in this tour in English at the start of summer? If we lose by >130 runs or >4 wickets, umpiring didn't matter. You whinge about it, and then the players get an excuse for their mistakes and shortcomings...

If we get bad decisions, BCB should write to the ICC and we should do preventive measures such as using UDRS at home turf and supplying a short list of umpires to ICC that should not be officiating in Bd (Ashoka, Bowden).

Rajib might have bowled himself back into the side after his 4/72 against England Lions, which is a shame because it's going to be bloody awful watching him grunting his way through over after over of club-standard rubbish that bounces twice before it reaches the keeper.

I'm yet to see Robiul play, but a seam attack of Robiul, Rubel and Shafiul is what I'd like to see if only because the three of them could produce something unexpected while I know this current version of Shahadat is pure rubbish.

Rajib bowled like the old Sharapova in the practice match against Surrey. And the ball actually was thuding into Mushys gloves. He is definitely bowling faster than 70 mph ;) What warmed my heart most was him not sending too many half trackers or down the legs. He looks much more controlled and composed. Maybe, finally, he is cultivating some brains.

One thing for sure, this lad doesnt lack any attitude. On current form, Shahadat will be my top pick from the pacers- certainly, if you take his experience of Eng condition into consideration. Robiul looked very promising in the pratice, Shafiul bowled like an old pro...he defies belief, given his physique or rather lack of it :) Rubel will always be a dangerous customer with his speed under seaming and swinging conditions.

Razzak can afford to enjoy watching the pace quartet from the comfort of the dressing room. He should not be allowed anywhere near the playing ground.

Thanks for that report, that's wonderful to hear. Rajib is a test standard bowler when he finds his rhythm, and his late inswing represents a far more potent threat than anything Mortaza has had in his armoury in recent years IMO. Let's hope it actually lasts this time, because the last time he looked like reverting to his best form ie. first test vs India, it lasted all of 1 innings.

Not sure what Robiul's like but I'd have thought early summer English conditions are just about tailor-made for Rubel Hossain.

That said, I'm basing that entirely on what he did in the second test against England. He didn't look remotely capable of swinging a cricket ball in the three test matches before that.

Very nervous about this match at Lords which is the ultimate ground for any cricketer to play. Hope the boys grab this opportunity and perform well, even if they can take the match into the 4th day. I must mention here that the Aussies will never host BD in Sydney or any of their grounds in southern Australia, but give the Brits credit for hosting the most lowly test nation at Lords. they have shown real class here.

Yes. I was extremely happy to see the Lords test on the schedule, and to be honest a bit surprised too. Aus have not invited us to play at MCG or SCG. IND are yet to invite us, but we are visiting Eng 2nd time in 5 years, and they have visited us twice in 6 years.
So, 4 bi-lateral series in 6 years. I don't think any other major test team has been this kind towards us. Also, England was the only test playing nation which initially had an objection with BD's test status. Pleasantly surprising this.

Spot on BCF bhai. I too do NOT want to play Razzak in both tests as I want to play four pacers at least for the 1st test. And I know I am a dreamer.;)


You're right, bro. BD fish tank will play Lalla for the prize wicket of KP only -regardless if it is a greentop at the Lords or not.

I would be extremely surprised if Lalla picks up any wkts or goes anything less than four an over. He keeps darting it down the legs over after over. Whad a waste.

Maybe the English board isn't as two-faced as some others..seems like they do what's best for cricket..opposing us before also made sense....just by looking at level of professionalism of the BCB. Another great thing about England is that they haven't followed the world trend of making pitches flat and making it all for the batsmen. Conditions here are prob quite similar to what Bradman used to face...whereas I am disguested at how Wacca in Perth and all the Windies pitches have been turned into roads.

Seems like 4-pace attack is the best way to go if Shahadat looks so sharp...all pacers are tight contenders due to ability to trouble batsmen and run away with 3-4 wickets per innings..

Now think about Razzak.
1. Do you see him get more than one wicket with any kind of dominant bowling?
2. Do you see him build pressure from one end that will lead Sakib and the pacers to get wickets at the other?
3. Do you see him bowling to the same standards and maintaining the pressure as Sakib at the other end when Sakib has the English on the backfoot with tight bowling and a wicket has been taken?

I think the ansewers to all three questions are no. Hence no point playing him..especially since all four of Shahadat, Rubel, Rabiul and Shafi have a role to play.

Shafi- Tight bowling at 135-140k pace.
Shahadat- Raw aggression and great with old ball and reverse swing
Rubel- Reverse swing and swinging with the new ball
Rabiul- Rookie with a knack of taking top order wickets.
Shakib- Strike test quality spinner. Needs support from other end that can keep pressure on when Shakib has created it, and that can produce pressure with wicket-taking deliveries when he struggles a bit. With him recovering from illness, 4 pacers+Riyad as support would be helpful.
Riyad- Expensive, but can produce wickets out of nothing. To be used sparingly.

At least the above bowling line-up qualifies as a scary test lineup.

Weather this morning was bit cold but it's getting better now. Tomorrow will be even cooler. I just pray we are not batting tomorrow morning.

You know we pick t20 players for Test matches, play ODI in Test and Test in ODI, bowl when should bat (WI). So, come tomorrow I won't be surprised a bit if Shakib wins the toss and says "we will have a bat first, wicket looks green...good for Batting and we have four pacers this time"...ha ha ha!

Rajib bowled like the old Sharapova in the practice match against Surrey. And the ball actually was thuding into Mushys gloves. He is definitely bowling faster than 70 mph ;) What warmed my heart most was him not sending too many half trackers or down the legs. He looks much more controlled and composed. Maybe, finally, he is cultivating some brains.

One thing for sure, this lad doesnt lack any attitude. On current form, Shahadat will be my top pick from the pacers- certainly, if you take his experience of Eng condition into consideration. Robiul looked very promising in the pratice, Shafiul bowled like an old pro...he defies belief, given his physique or rather lack of it :) Rubel will always be a dangerous customer with his speed under seaming and swinging conditions.

Razzak can afford to enjoy watching the pace quartet from the comfort of the dressing room. He should not be allowed anywhere near the playing ground.

Priceless ;)

The best line-up, provided Tamim can play, will be:

1. Tamim Iqbal Khan
2. Jahurul Islam
3. Zunaed Siddique
4. Mohammed Ashraful
5. Shakib Al-Hasan (C) (3rd/2nd change)
6. Mahmudullah Riyad ( midway into 2nd session)
7. Mushfiqur Rahim (wk)
8. Shahadat Hossain (1st change)
9. Shafiul Islam (opener)
10. Rubel Hossain (opener)
11. Rabiul Islam (2nd/3rd change)

To play with 4 pacers we run one batsmen short. However you haven't talked of Ash's Bowling. ;) I won't mind ofcourse having the pacers in form, even if that means 4. we miss a quality spinner. Ironically we haven't yet produced a genuine spinner.

Razzak is out of any discussion. I think we need a better bowling allrounder to maintain a depth in batting. Shahadat cannot be counted yet to contribute with the bat... his batting is still just a bonus.

Then I guess you'll be surprised to see Razzak's name tomorrow in the squad. I won't pick Naeem either since he's not much good in test bowling, and he's off-form in batting. Once he's back in form, we'll pick him.. If you pick him, you're kicking out Rabiul, and I think he'd contribute more right now.

The team selection hasn't been announced yet, I suppose. Based on current info available with injuries and disease, I think we are all but certain that both Tamim and Sakib will play. This is my team order for tomorrow.
1. Tamim
2. Zunaid ( he moves up a spot )
3. Ash
4. Jahurul ( I am very reluctant to throw him to open or at no.3 )
5. Riyadh ( He has settled in there )
6. Rahim
7. Sakib
8. Naeem
9. Shafi
10. Rubel
11. Robiul.

Buoyant England switch their focus (http://www.cricinfo.com/england-v-bangladesh-2010/content/current/story/460984.html)


Big Picture

Less than two weeks after securing the World Twenty20 crown in Barbados England's focus has returned to Test cricket. After soaking up their success, a visit to Downing Street and the Player of the Year dinner it's back to the serious business with minds and bodies needing to adjust to the five-day game.

It is a very different England side that will take the field on Thursday to the one that was chasing Paul Collingwood around the Kensington Oval. For starters the Twenty20 captain isn't there, having been rested along with Stuart Broad, and six of the likely starters at Lord's weren't in the Caribbean while a seventh, James Anderson, was a drinks carrier. Andrew Strauss is back to lead the side for the first time since January after sitting out the Bangladesh tour as is his understudy Alastair Cook who led the squad on that trip.

This short series should be a formality and the onus is very much on building - and maintaining - momentum during the season ahead of next winter's Ashes series. The squad rotation is with a view to finding out about a few younger players with Eoin Morgan and Steven Finn at the head of that list as Andy Flower adds to his options.

England were made to work hard for their success in Bangladesh, but on home soil will be expecting less resistance from the tourists. The visitors' warm-up form has been poor with a heavy defeat against England Lions last week and Shakib Al Hasan has been laid up with chicken pox. This tour has to be viewed as another learning experience for the team and they are going to have to adjust to foreign conditions if they want to be a force in the world game.

Given the low expectations taking the games to five days would class as a success for Bangladesh, but if there is any help on offer for England's attack even that may prove too much. Four years ago they were beaten before lunch on the third day and they'll want to give a better account of themselves this time.

Form guide (last five completed matches)

England WWLDW
Bangladesh LLLLL

Watch out for...

Eoin Morgan has made his name in the limited-overs game with a series of matchwinning innings in 50- and 20-over matches. That composure has been enough to earn him a Test chance despite a disappointing first-class record where he averages 36. Flower has clearly seen something he likes. The challenge for Morgan is to focus his energy into building long innings, although two matches against Bangladesh won't push him to his limits. With Collingwood likely to return to face Pakistan this could be a brief window for Morgan to stake his Ashes claims.

Such is the desire to play at Lord's for visiting cricketers that Tamim Iqbal will battle the pain barrier to line up on Thursday. But beyond his personal drive to savour headquarters he is also vital to any chance Bangladesh have of making a sustained contest out of this Test. He was the stand-out performer when the two sides met earlier this year and if he can continue that form in foreign conditions his reputation will be further enhanced.

Team news

Although this would be a good chance to experiment with five bowlers, it seems likely England will stick to their preferred route of a batting-heavy line-up which means a debut for Morgan ahead of Ajmal Shahzad. A host of Test specialists return, including the under-pressure Jonathan Trott at No.3, while Matt Prior will want to quieten speculation over his place.

England (probable) 1 Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Alastair Cook, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Kevin Pietersen, 5 Ian Bell, 6 Eoin Morgan, 7 Matt Prior (wk), 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Graeme Swann, 10 James Andeson, 11 Steven Finn

Shakib has recovered from chicken pox and Tamim will play despite his wrist injury with both vital to Bangladesh's hopes. Given concerns over how their batting will respond, it is no surprise they are packing the top order. Mohammad Ashraful returns and Jahurul Islam, who made an unbeaten 58 against the Lions, also plays which means Mushfiqur Rahim is down at No. 8. There is no place for left-arm spinner Abdul Razzak so Shakib can expect plenty of overs.

Bangladesh (probable) 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Imrul Kayes, 3 Junaid Siddique, 4 Jahurul Islam, 5 Mohammad Ashraful, 6 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 7 Mahmudullah, 8 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 9 Rubiul Islam, 10 Rubel Hossain, 11 Shahadat Hossain

Pitch and conditions

The recent heatwave in London has abated to be replaced by more normal conditions with sunny intervals and cloud. England's pace attack won't mind overhead conditions to help them and there is a chance of some rain during the weekend. The pitch is rarely a concern at Lord's and a pacey track is expected which should encouraged batsmen and bowlers who are good enough to take advantage.

Stats and Trivia

England remain the only Full Member nation never to have lost an international match against Bangladesh

During the 2005 Test at Lord's, Bangladesh were dismissed for 108 and 159 as England romped to an innings-and-261-run victory

Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladesh wicketkeeper, made his debut in that match but played as a batsman only, while Shahadat Hossain also made his first appearance and went for 101 in 12 overs.

Quotes

"The success we've had over the last 12 months has been built around hard work and graft and I think we need to take that to the next level."
Andrew Strauss is determined not to take anything for granted against Bangladesh

"I'm really excited to play at Lord's in a Test match. It will be a dream come true and I really want to play, because I don't know when I'll get another chance."
Nothing will stop Tamim Iqbal playing at Lord's - even a wrist that requires surgery

agree with Beamer's order...let ash face the music. he seems to be at his most circumspect at one down anyways. recall all the sub 50 strike rate ODI innings at number 3.

i still want to fit in rajib somewhere, but then again, he's probably gonna suck.
