View Full Version : Who knows Final Squad

February 25, 2004, 11:21 AM
I think its only 16 more hours before the second test start. Why didn't they declear the squad yet? or will they do it on the game morning? We have had a lot of discussion about the squad. According to Bangladesher khela, there COULD be this changes:
Manjural drops out and alamgir in.
hannan drops out when alok or al shahriar comes in. In that case pilot opens! I don't think though, opennning by pilot is a good idea. its been tried before and he is good as as trail ender, not really good when playing top in top order. Anyway,

Can someone please post the final squad here as soon as you get them?

I think we will regret later if we drop Hannan.

nothing to regreat..because no matter who opens Hannan or Pilot..they not gona be able to even see the new balls..so there will be a wkt or two in first few overs atleast. They just have to rebuild the innings like someone has to take over the responsibility(eiather Bashar!! or Rajin)

I see only one changes: Taric coming in for monju.

yeah, only one change but, its not tareq, its alamgir kabir. the advantages i think alamgir got from the selectors are: he has experience playing tests (2). It might not be a good idea to introduce a complete new comer to such a crutial test.
he also has better average than aziz in firrst class cricket. hope he'll not disappoint us.
