View Full Version : Changes for the 2nd test

Carte Blanche

Do you think we should play the same 11 for the 2nd test? Personally I'd like to make one change. Play Tareq/Alamgir instead of Monju. The rest seems fine to me. The poorest performers of the 1st test were Hannan and Sumon. There's no way you can drop Sumon. And I'm pretty confident Hannan will bounce back with a boom in 2nd test.

Ya, Kick out Manjural Islam.

he will give away more runs but he is also likely to take more wickets. It will definitely make our new ball attack more potent.

Atleast some Zimbos may still remember Tareq's 6 wickets haul just a week ago. I would go with Tareq.

Me too, for Tarek. Let's give him a few hours at the net with the bat also, before the second test.

taking 6 wicket during practice match doesn't mean anything. still, it seems like rafiq needed a company. we should give aziz a chance to see how he does.

Tareq will be in...I m 90% sure

Give Tareq a chance...Manju lacks flare...he is not a good replacement for Masri

i am pretty confident tarek will be a big bust.

I have a gut feeling that Whatmore will not want to change the final eleven for the 2nd test, remember the England tour? He didn't drop Enamul Haque Junior for the 2nd test at Chittagong although the wicket was more pace-friendly (and thus, less spin-friendly) than Dhaka wicket.
