From the past, i have noticed that, BD puts out their best 11 to the practice matches. If anyone of them does really bad, then on the real game, the simplay rest him and put another who didnt get to practice or prove.

I think we should change this bad habbit. What we should do is... on the first practice match, take out the 4 sure ones... Monjur, Bulbul, Sumon, Moni.

That leaves us with the other 11 and test the new ones...

Sezan
Hannan
Rokon
tushar
Akram
Ash
Pilot
Fahim
Tarek
Alamgir
Talha

This will give us a lot of opportunity. We already have sure 4... Mojur, Suman, Bulbul & Moni.
We can choose 1 opening partner for Rokon, Hannan/Sezan. That 2 more to selected.
We can see how bowlers does and chose 2 from Talha/Sumit/Alamgir/Tarek. Thats 2 more.
We have Pilot for sure. Thats 9 so far. And finally, We can choose 2 from Tusar/Akram/Ash.

That will give us the 2nd practice match squad. Now our select 11 can get the 3 day practice for the big game.

But I know, we wont do anything like this. We will go there and put a team like this...

Rokon
Sezan
Suman
Bulbul
Akram
Ash
Pilot
Moni
Monjur
Talha
Alamgir

I think Fahim Muntasir is a better choice than Talha - the third pacer.

But then again, from the past experience I have also seen that 3 pacers is what they have always chosen to play in test matches.

Correct.

BCB will sit out a better spinner and play not so good 3 pacers.

Someone put it in their head 3 pacer is a must, not quality.

Sad.
