__________________________________________
Hello and Welcome. This is exactly what we have been waiting for 14 months and of course Bangladesh Cricket evaluates Test Cricket more than anything.This time The Tigers are hungry for some Bald Eagles and at the same time it seems Bald Eagles are also hungry for some wild cats. In result, while flying high in the sky The Eagles have mistaken Royal Bengal Tigers as little wild cats and coming down to hunt them! what is going to happen next?

Bald Eagles are going to be successful slaying the tigers?
Both will fail to beat each other and leave the spot?
Tigers will be alert seeing the shadow of the Eagle and fight for what they have been there?


Meanwhile, to the fans everything seems like visiting the famous wild African Safari Park. Thrilling,Chilling live wild action. Stay with us for more action and reaction!!

Preview of the team of some zimbawean member is their forum...
warwolf, We are playing Bangladesh and so discussing Bangladesh (in a game against Zim players no less) is entirely appropriate and welcome as far as I'm concerned. I liked the insight from your interplay with A_BD_Fan; that Razzak is generally not viewed as a Test player. That suits me fine because I've had nightmares of him taking Five-fors all over the place. http://www.zimcricketforums.com/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

As for this match,like the other practice matches, they've been entirely fruitful for Zim. Now Mutizwa has played himself into the test team, and Mawoyo out of it. I still have lingering concerns about Ervine's form but his 42 has saved him I think. With Raza waiting in the wings ready to pounce like Mutizwa has done, I'd be careful if I was him. The middle order finally becomes stronger with Mutizwa and Taibu in (Chakabva has failed to convince) but the opening slot is still up for grabs on a permanent basis if we keep Taylor at 4. Masakadza likes to be at 3, so let's keep him there. Sibanda will open, so no problems there (finally, I remember the uproar just this guy's name used to provoke at ZCF http://www.zimcricketforums.com/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif ). Taylor at 1 and Mutizwa at 4 can be a permanent first choice lineup for a long time and I like it. I'm not adverse to Taylor at 4 and some other opener found but not for the Bangladesh test, the time for experiments is over (although since I proposed the "Mutizwa for opener" experiment, I reserve the right to back that theory despite what I've just said http://www.zimcricketforums.com/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif ). Taibu didn't have a good time with the bat but his wicketkeeping practice must have done him some good and besides, he and Chigs have the proven ability to get a 100 somewhere. I still don't know whether Meth or Utseya or none will get in but that's a good problem to have

It will be tough tough Test for Bangladesh. I won't be surprised if we end up losing by a big margin.

At the same time there is every possibility that the boys will trounce the Zimbabwe side convincingly. :)

It all depends on which Bangladesh turns up on 4th August.

Even though we lost the practice match and still am worried about the batting, I don't think we should lose confidence. The boys have now hopefully shaken the rust now and should be putting in a better performance. It should be a good match and I see us winning comfortably in the end. Good luck to Zimbabwe and good luck to our boys.

Hi Guys

Good to be back on the forum and looking forward to our return to test cricket after a six year break.

Our squad has just been announced and looks like Keegen Meth has won the third semers spot and the Tino Maywyo is being given a go at the top of the order. I think the key to the contest will be in the top order.

watch out for Kegeen Meth as this guy swings the ball both ways and will not go for many runs.

Zimbabwe just need to make sure they have 9 players standing at off-stumps..cause, most likely BD batsmen will go for wild off-site fishing or defending the rising ball or go for an awkard double-minded shot and provide catcthing practice session...

Great thread mate. Just one thing though... the emblem you guys see on the Zimbabweans' helmets is not a 'bald eagle', but a sacred Zimbabwe Bird called HUNGWE. In this case you might be wondering if you can then call the Zimbabwe Cricket Team 'The Hungwes'...well, NO. I think it's best if we stick to Zimbabweans or Zimbos. Great thread though! :-)

I am worried about the top order. Tamim will have to walk into a Test match without playing the longer format for a long time. Kayes seems to be continuing his horror run in Test cricket. Junaid or Ashraful look like a walking wicket also while Shakib has been out of form with the bat for a long time. So who do we look at to the score the runs for us? Best bet is Mushfiq, Mahmudullah, Nasir and Nafees.

Bowling will be fine as usual i think

Okay first of all, anyone with an iota of brain cell would be able to detect that Zimslog is no Zimbabwean. I mean, no amount of google translate would be able to make you write that much bangla phrases. I don't know if you guys are just playing around or you actually believe that he is a Zimbo.

Second, what the hell just happened in the practice match? I don't care what the pitch was like. If you can't score 200 in an international arena, you deserve to have your butt whipped. And I've had enough of Razzak. The chucker has got to go.

These 'golden boys' better start making some runs else it will be off with their heads.

Shafiul and Robiul dominated the bowling for Bangladesh in the first innings and it was no different in the second innings until Bangladesh suffered a setback on the final day. They went into the final day with a bowler short as pace spearhead Shafiul did not take to the field due to a slight muscle problem in his leg.

Team officials, however, ruled out any chance of him missing out on the only Test of the series, beginning on August 4 in Harare.

‘We did not allow him to bowl as a precaution since he had a slight muscle problem. However, it is not that serious and he should be okay to play the Test match against Zimbabwe,’ Shafiqur Rahman Munna, head of Bangladesh team delegation, told New Age over phone from Harare.

If you're in England, you're getting cricket into you and can arrive late. Otherwise, it should have been several four-day games.

Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe Only test preview by me

It’s been a long break for the Tigers and for the fans like me since the last ODI against the Aussies back in April. It’s been even longer for test lovers like me since the last time we saw our boys in all white. But now it all comes down to this single test. Will Bangladesh finally win a test match and stop those Cricket Gurus wondering or will Zimbabwe return in style and restore their honour as a test nation? The rivalry is about to get tougher that’s for sure!



Team News

Bangladesh:



After such a long break from ODI cricket and the longest break since the last test, Bangladesh don’t have much to be assured of. With new players making debuts and old players trying to make a comeback, our squad is full of uncertainties and unpredictable outcomes. With a completely new coaching staff who barely got time to say “hi”, the situation does not get better at all. The batting attack looked promising until two big collapses against a second string Zimbabwe in the practice match. The bowling on the other hand looked much better and the absence of Shahadat and Mashrafe might not be the death factor anymore.

Some fans might feel very unsecured given the loss in the practice match however, they also have to take into consideration the 42 hours journey to the African land right before the match. The players were undoubtedly exhausted and still adapting to the cold weather. All these factors contributed to the loss. The vice-captain and dashing opener Tamim Iqbal was also absent from the much because of his recovery from a slight injury. But that’s all for excuses! Bangladesh will need to brace themselves against a seam attack at a seam friendly condition. This is in contrast to the surface and situation they face in home. On the other hand, the seamers from Bangladesh will need to make supreme effort because spinners won’t enjoy the luxury of a spin wicket anymore. Although, Zimbabwe does have a huge weakness against spin attack but that might not be effective until the second innings or after 3 days of cricket. So if the pacers can restrict the Zimbabwean batting attack under 250, the spinners will be able to do the rest in the second. For our batting, they must bat as long as possible. The score isn’t a prime target anymore. Bangladesh batting line up have a point to make to the critic world that they have the maturity, temperament to play test cricket. In order to accomplish that, they must bat at least 150 overs. Even though Bangladesh is the favourite, they are not far ahead from Zimbabwe calculating every factor.



Zimbabwe

First of all, welcome back to test cricket. Their exile from this important format has been nothing but pain for their supporters. But past is past. Now they are back in full swing. With Taylor leading the way, Zimbabwe has a great opportunity to comeback with a win. The surface, weather, venue everything favouring them, it will only take mental toughness and correct execution of skills to pull them through. The line-up needs to forget the fact that they did not play test cricket for long and Bangladesh are the favourites. If they can do that, they will have the killer instinct more than Bangladesh will. Having a promising bowling attack, their batting attack is a growing concern. Even from a neutral perspective, their batting is not test ready at all. For Bangladesh, their problem is consistency because they have talented players that certainly have the temperament and skills for the format. For Zimbabwe, they might have the talent but they are far from proving it. However, if they can post a combined score of 450, they will certainly have a good chance and it will be a reasonable start. The coaching staff would be working on ensuring those mistakes and poor display against Australian A does not get repeated because the critic world would have the microscope on this team as well as Bangladesh.



Playing XI:



Bangladesh



With no Mashrafe, Shahadat, their pace attack lacks that experience and killer instinct. But that also means, they have a chance to try some of the newer players and maybe have an X factor. With 3 pacers a must, it would even be better to play all 4 pacers available to form a strong attack. With Rubel bringing the pace, Shafiul and Robiul will work out their swing and Nazmul putting the opponent under pressure with his controlled bowling. A chance for Nazmul is a long overdue as he gets benched way too often without a valid reason. He can be deadly with his slow deliveries and on this surface, he can certainly be effective. He also remains the most experienced against Zimbabwe out of all pacers remaining. Even though Razzaq was never a test material, for the spin attack he is the only one available other than Shakib. His “wow” factor and fire hot streak against Zimbabwe could give him the edge if he can adapt to longer format quicker. Shakib will also need to continue his good performance in test cricket as a bowler but after such a long break and a busy T20 schedule this year, one can only hope for the best. Mahmudullah Riyad can provide back up if needed but if Bangladesh have to go up to Mahmudullah to stop the opposition, the chances wont be high. For batting attack, one comment can summarize the whole attack. “No Ashraful” Even though he is still a legend for the Tigers, he just does not have the temperament, skills required and consistency to appear in white jerseys. Any other batsmen would only be better. His inclusion in the team makes the whole batting attack look more inconsistent than it is. Tamim, the superstar in tests last year, will have his chance to shine again. If he can settle in, he can accomplish anything, almost any record. Hopefully he wouldn’t miss the opportunity. Players like Mahmudullah Riyad, Shahriar Nafees and Mushfiqur Rahim will have to make a much better effort in the actual test than the practice match. They certainly have the talent and temperament to go big. They only need to start well. For the rookies, Shuvogoto Hom and Nasir Hossain, both are promising and it cannot be a loss to add either or both of them, but perhaps it would be wise to observe for now rather than take the heat. So my playing XI becomes,



Tamim Iqbal

Junaid Siddique

Shahriar Nafees

Shakib Al Hasan

Mahmudullah Riyad

Mushfiqur Rahim

Abdur Razzaq/ Nasir Hossain

Shafiul Islam

Nazmul Hossain

Rubel Hossain

Robiul Islam



For me, no point taking 8 batsmen if 5 of them can’t even make it to double digits!



Zimbabwe:



For the eagles, they have a much controlled squad for past few years. They don’t have much option outside the current pool nor is it advisable to bring any for this crucial clash. The best thing to do would be play a healthy number of seamers and the best batsmen on line. Taylor, Sibanda, Masakadza and Taibu will need to lead the batting because they are best ones the team has. For bowling, Mpofu, the new and promising Vitori, Experienced Ray Price and Elton Chigumbura will lead the bowling. It is not that difficult to predict their starting line up on the 4th.

Tino Mawoyo

Vusi Sibanda

Hamilton Masakadza

Brendan Taylor (capt)

Tatenda Taibu (wk)

Ray Price

Craig Ervine

Elton Chigumbura

Brian Vitori

Chris Mpofu

Keegan Meth



Players to watch out for!



Shafiul Islam: After an unsuccessful world cup campaign followed by the tough Aussie series, Shafiul is set to make a comeback. He is certainly the best seamer in the Tigers line up at the moment. His good performance against Zimbabwe A team shows hope. When this guy is confident, he can get anybody out of the way. His aggressive bowling can be deadly against Zimbabwe at the condition that favours it. His excellent swingers could very well bag a lot of wickets. If Shakib uses him well, expect a lot of wickets from this guy early on in the innings. Not only with the bowl but recently he has shown great qualities as a lower order batsmen. He can certainly bring some quick runs with the bat!



Brian Vitori: The only player in the Zimbabwe team without any experience, he will be an X factor for Zimbabwe. He already received numerous praises from the Australian A coaching department, his own coach Cambell is also confident in his abilities. Once again with a wonderful seaming pitch, he can be very effective against the Bangladesh side that are totally inexperienced in facing him.



Toss Given the shaky batting attack for Bangladesh, it would be better if they are not put on test right away. Also given the condition where the mornings are a bit cold, the bowlers would do better than batsmen early on. So, win the toss, and it's bowl first from me!

We might consider the practice match harmless enough using excuses after excuses but if we lose the test, the blame will directly go to THIS match. Why didn't we have red alert at that match? Why did we lose the practice match in the first place? Didn't it give us caution already?

So this loss may be the crux of the matter; now, I don't mean to bash Siddons, okay may be I do, but being lax is DEFINITELY not the way to prepare. Remember how we experimented pre-WC? And everyone was saying: oh oh these are just warm up matches and should be taken lightly. Well guess what? Those matche losses were mild compared to the REAL drubbing we had in WC.

"Be warned, be very warned," sayeth the soothsayer.

So I don't know if it is residual of Sidvision that we should take practice games lightly but this has NEVER paid any dividends. On the flip side of it, if we actually ended on a high, we could catapult off them....

Never knew that we actually played a practice game and it is actually quite shocking that we lost to a second string Zim side. This is a horrible start. Now i have doubts that we can post a 400+ total. Imrul again scored 8 and a 0, my my why am i not surprised there.

@Kalpurush bhai - I have stats to back up my statement. Imrul has played 13 Test matches, 26 innings, scored only one 50 (fluke) with a poor average of 17.42. Disgraceful for a Test batsman compare this to Shariar Nafees after 16 Test and 32 innings, scored 4 fifties and 1 hundred with an ok average 26.09 (for Bangladeshi standard). Not to forget Nafees scored that against Australia when they were invincible.

With that being said, Imrul is a good odi batsman but just for his odi merits you can't select him. For example Australia's Michael Bevan was an odi specialist didn't fare that well in Test, it's a different ball game and selector's needs to understand or else we have another Ashraful in the making. 12 Test is more than enough opportunities.

Also, I have seen the West indies series where he batted quite poorly.

see the prob is not with imrul..its with Tamim..because of tamim we had a very good opening partnership in tests last year...there was a stats article in cricinfo which showed tamim and imrul were 7th best opening partnership of the year with an avg of 43+ i think...all of this is because of tamim..he has been in so good form before u know we have tamim in 40 and imrul in 4 and the opening stand at 50 in no time...so selectors dont want to brake up this combination...we had pretty decent opening stand so no need to change it...if it aint broken dont fix it...but i do agree that imrul as a player dont cut it in test..he has poor technique and bowlers will figure him out easily

In a way our results with them also represents how much we have improved as a side. Before august 2006 we hardly won against a zimbabwe side possessing Grant Flower, Heath Streak and co. But since august 2006 we played 29 ODIS and managed to win 23 of them... Our dominance over them is to the point of bullying right now!

So lets hope Razzak gets bucket load of wickets including hat-tricks... Tamim and Shakib climb in ICC rankings and our own bradman against zimbo, the legendary Shahriar Nafees scores 400+ runs before the series is over

Why do you ask?

Well, if you're older than twelve, you should know Bangladesh has had a few tremendously atrocious defeat. I mean we lost within 7 sessions once (against Srilanka, I think) and that's because the Srilankans wanted some Batting practice. Some of there Batsmen even retired to let others take a shot at a free century, our Bowling was that toothless.

I realize recent Zim-Bang relation make us look bad-a$$ to you people, But trust me we sucked so much in the past, our most embarrassing defeat just can't come from you guys.

Just messing with you guys. I'm 34 years old and I've been around for quite some time. Yeah Bangladesh getting beaten in 7 sessions is kinda embarrassing, but it's not even close to getting bowled out twice in a single day (Zimbabwe vs New Zealand in 2004/05). I just get the feeling that in this upcoming test there is very little to separate the BD and Zim and if the wicket is good it could go down to the last day. :-)

It might depend on how ZC inteprete the whole thing. Tiba hasnt been perfoming well of late & the outburst might be viewed as a sign of frustration which is affecting his game, so they might question his commitment and drop him. They might just decide to do the unexpected and play him so that it doesnt appear like its anything major.

Taibu slams board on eve of Test return


On the eve of Zimbabwe's return to Test cricket, senior wicketkeeper batsman Tatenda Taibu has slammed the country's administration for not doing enough for the game. Taibu said that a lack of funds and poor professional structures are crippling cricket in the country.

The end of an almost six-year long self-imposed exile from Test cricket, the introduction of a franchise system and the return of many former players such as Heath Streak and Grant Flower to the coaching structures had many thinking that transformation in the air. Taibu has knocked that notion, saying that the only reason the game survives in the country is because of the commitment of its players.

"I don't think much has changed really, the administration is still struggling to run cricket in the country well," Taibu said candidly. "For example, the guys haven't been paid their match fees from August last year up to now. At the moment, I am sitting here without a contract, no one has got a contract; those are all things that the administration is struggling to deal with."

Although the franchises have been able to contract and pay players, the issue of central contracts has never been clarified or resolved. All players who play for Zimbabwe must be contracted to a franchise, which means they earn some form of income, but Taibu indicated that may just be a form of bandaging a wound that really needs surgery. "When you walk around and you see a house that's painted well, you will think that house is really standing strong but if does not have a strong foundation, it will fall down one day or another," he said. "Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has just painted a house that's about to fall."

Taibu said the players have tried to seek certainty from ZC but that, personally, he had kept a distance from the subject because of his reputation as a pot-stirrer. "It's hard for me as a player with the history that I've got in Zimbabwe cricket to go up and mention these things," he said. "We've tried to go through the right structures, the captain and the manager but nothing has been done to date."

Taibu resigned from the captaincy in November 2005 in controversial fashion after speaking out about the way cricket was being run and spent time living in Namibia, Bangladesh and South Africa before coming home in 2007.

He vowed not to speak about administrative issues again but now, Taibu has broken his silence and said he is no afraid of the repercussions. Instead, he feels it his responsibility, as the senior statesman of the side, to be the mouthpiece for some of the juniors. "I like telling the truth, I know most of the other guys are scared of being targeted and they won't be able to come out and say it in the open but I am not scared of being targeted. I think it's important that I can stand up for the younger guys who don't have a voice."

With such discontent bubbling under the surface of a historic comeback into the game, it's difficult to see what keeps the players motivated. Taibu explained that it was the patriotism and passion in the ranks, and that he is proud to be involved with men of such character. "I can't falter the coaching staff, they've worked really hard and I can't falter the guys. They come in day in and day out but they are not getting much support from the administration unfortunately," he said. "To see the guys running in and bowling and hitting a lot of balls in the nets it really shows that the guys have got the country at heart. It is two days before a Test match and no one has got a contract, no one knows what we will get paid, but the guys love their country and they can't see cricket drop like that."

As much as there is strife in Zimbabwe cricket, there is also pride and the return to the game's premier format is something the players are cherishing. "It will be sad to see Zimbabwe cricket die, after all the people that have worked hard for us to get Test cricket back, I think it will be a waste if we let it die."

Taibu believes the game is still very much alive and the upcoming Test matches, against Bangladesh, Pakistan and New Zealand, will only help cricket thrive in spite of its structures. "When you play Test cricket, you improve faster," he said. "As a batsman you spend more time at the crease, as a bowler you learn how to get people out, how to be disciplined and when to attack and when not to."

The US$30000 spent on Lara was absolutely insane! I wonder how much Gillespie is getting while he's coching The Rhinos. I think, instead of hiring these foreign coaches, we can use the local ones to cut costs. This will give the board a chance to give the likes of Taylor, Williams, Taibu a good salary. They might even be able to lure the likes of Ervine, de Grandhomme, Anthony Ireland etc. Truth of the matter is Chingoka has been president for too long HE MUST GO!!!

Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor believes his team could spring a few surprises on Bangladesh in the one-off Test which starts on Thursday, and also suggested that conditions in Harare would suit the Zimbabweans.

"It is great that we are coming back to play Tests and as we go into our first match the good thing is that our opponents don't quite know what to expect from us and we have a few surprises for them," said Taylor.

Zimbabwe have played 33 ODIs against Bangladesh since their Test suspension - including 14 in 2009 alone - with Bangladesh having dominated those games, winning 24 of them, ESPNcricinfo reports.

Mohammad Ashraful is the only member of Bangladesh's squad to have played a Test against Zimbabwe, however, a situation Taylor is hoping work out in his team's favour.

"They have been playing over the years and they have always been improving, so have we behind the scenes," he said.

"They know an awful lot about us in the one-day format of the game but they may not have the information they would have wanted as far as Test cricket is concerned, and we are looking to make good use of that."

Despite Bangladesh's supremacy over Zimbabwe in recent times, Taylor insisted there was little to separate the teams going into the Test.

"We will take each session as it comes and play positively with a winning mindset. We know they will be up for it and so will we and we are confident that if we play our best cricket this is a winnable match," he said.

"They are a strong side especially when they are playing at home, but we are at home where we will make sure we put our conditions to good use. We should just make sure they are not as comfortable as they would want to be. We have a plan and if we stick to it we should win."

Zimbabwe will also be bolstered by the return of wicketkeeper Tatenda Taibu, one of their most experienced players and one of only two current Zimbabwe cricketers to have recorded a Test century.

Taibu has not quite fully recovered from the thumb injury that kept him out of cricket since the World Cup earlier this year, but said he was fit enough to play in both the Test and the limited-overs series that follows.

"It's not fully healed but it is comfortable enough for me to play in the Test match and the ODIs as well," said Taibu. "It is a very important match and we will need all the resources we can get."

To say Zim are the favourites is going a bit over board, but previous ODI results between BD and Zim are irrelevant. Of course BD have had our number for some time now and like Shakib said they are probably the favourites. In this test i'm sure the world is going to be surprised by the way the Zim team performs and a victory isn't just a wild fantasy for the Zimbos and BD could receive a nice a** whooping if they become too complacent!

Just take it ball at a time, and stick to the plan for the win. Rest will come..

I thought Rubel is not fully fit..... as he didn't ball a single one in last practise game.
Nazmul didn't do bad as a pacer, kept presure from 1 end.

I'd rather go with Jarvis a genuine pacer than Meth. Meth hasn't shown much with the bat, and he might swing it, but he doesn't have much pace bowling 75 mph. On a truer wicket than the tour match, he would get shut out by our batsmen.

Razzaque will take 2-3 wickets either way.. not because he is good, because Zimbabwe is that bad!! He is an experienced guy and even if he bowls like ODI, containng runs, he will get the wicket of the ZIM players who forgot completely about Test Cricket after 6 years gap. So, all in all, a good team but without jynxing it,, my suspision is Rubel will not be bolwoing full quota as he is half-fit!!

Thats not what I said. What I said was once selected, there isn't any reason we should root for someone's failure. Especially not a player like Ash who no one will argue has delivered amazing performances like no one else has. Not Tamim, not Shakib. This doesn't mean they are lesser cricketers, but it means that Ash is just missing the skill of consistent productivity.

If Javed Omar got selected, I'd root for him to do well.

yes..i'll agree with this..we should support ash now...he has been selected and he is playing for Bangladesh...thats the bottom line

but i think we should stop saying what could have happened with ash..holing onto this is not taking us anywhere

Its unfair that Ash got in over Zunaed even though he averaged 20 less then him last year. But anyways no point of complaining. I hope that Ash can deliver as it would really help the team in posting a big score. Also its better we don't play 8 batsmen. Its always better to play 5 full time bowlers in a test match. Let's hope Razzak does better.

I know people are trying to keep expectations low and that at the end of the day we're playing Zimbabwe rather than the G8 teams,but its our return to test cricket after 14 months and so I can't resist but watch the 'Cholo Bangladesh' video :): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcqYNDXa0Hk

On that happy, sentimental note, Good Night!

batting lineup is weak in the probable team.nasir would ve been better than razzak in test. what do ya think?

August 3, 2011, 09:07 PM
^i think in the end its a better idea for him to play the ODIs 1st to see what he has to offer. Not sure if he can be a full time bowler and batsman.

Hey ZeeshanM, little bit off topic but I have to ask, what is that character's name on your profile picture? I used to be a big fan of the comic book when i was younger.

August 3, 2011, 10:58 PM
I was trying to think if we batted first how many runs we would end up with.

Even though my heart says a Blistering Century from Tamim would proppel us to 300.. my brain says something in the region of 180-220

Avik
August 3, 2011, 11:00 PM

300+ na hole kissu hobe na. i support our pacers, and are big fans, but neither shaiful nor rubel has experience in bowling out a test team. we would need 350+, and then bowl them out below 250. a lead of 100 will be valuable in this wicket. its a bit too safe, but a lead is must.

and tamim must play well. ashraful bhalo khelle bhalo, na khelle nai. i wont think abt him.

I guess everyone is counting on Tamim...but trust me guys watch out for Mushy..He is one of the best for BD when it comes to Test cricket
