Good Squad - Can't see any reasons to complain. I guess Selectors wanting to give more chance to Zunaed Siddique and Ziaur Rahman. Anamul Haque not yet ready, so good decision.

4 seamers?? We are not even gonna play 3! Should have taken an extra batsman. Maybe Shuvagata or give Alauddin a chance

They will still play 2 seamers and play Zia as a 3rd occasional at most! yes technically they should play 3 seamers but they wont! So why take an extra seamer? Do u see Nazmul or Abul getting a match unlesss there is any injuries?

Anamul should have been there in palace of Zahirul imho. yes, he failed but he is our future, plus Zahirul hasn't done anything to get the nod either.

Shakib, Shafiul return for Ireland T20s

Bangladesh have brought back allrounder Shakib Al Hasan and medium-pacer Shafiul Islam to their squad for the Twenty20 matches in Ireland and the Netherlands in July. Teenage batsman Anamul Haque and allrounder Farhad Reza are the omissions from the squad that failed to make the final of the Twenty20 tri-series in Zimbabwe. Shakib had been rested for the tri-series.

Akram Khan, Bangladesh's chief selector, said Anamul had been left out so he could focus on the upcoming Under-19 World Cup in Australia this August. "He [Anamul Haque] has a lot of time and I think if he plays in the age-level World Cup, it will bring more maturity to his game," Akram said. Anamul scored only 16 runs in three matches during the T20s in Harare.

Shafiul returned to the side after being sidelined by a shoulder injury he sustained during the Asia Cup in March. "We have always maintained that we are not in favour of major changes in the team," Akram said. "Shafiul is one of our first-choice pace bowlers so his return will be a boost."

The tour begins with a three-match series against Ireland between July 18 and 21 in Belfast. The second leg is at The Hague, where Bangladesh play Scotland on July 24 and Netherlands on July 25. It will be Bangladesh's second preparatory tour ahead of the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka in September.

Starting 11:

1. Tamim Iqbal
2. Mohammad Ashraful
3. Zunaed Siddique
4. Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain)
5. Shakib Al Hasan
6. Mahmudullah
7. Nasir Hossain
8. Ziaur Rahman
9. Masrafe Bin Mortaza
10. Abdur Razzak
11. Shafiul Islam

Jahurul and Zunaid can be switched for #3 position. I think Raz/Elias will be a better bet against Irish.. Too bet we dont have Lee in our team. besides, I think Raz was a star against them in home series.

Bench:
Jahurul Islam, Nazmul Hossain, Md Elias, Abul Hasan.

No Mominul again? And why have they picked Abul again? That kid was a disaster.

Tiger444
July 2, 2012, 01:29 PM
I think this is a good squad. No need for Farhad since Ziaur looks like the better pace allrounder. Also Anamul needs more time to groom before he should be considered for the national team. Ideally, Abul needs more time to groom but since we're so depleted in the pace department, we should continue to develop him. Al-Amin and Babu are on the same level as him imo. That being said, he should be the backup this tour.

Let's see how they do in Ireland.

Selection of Abul Hasan shows us how weak our reserve pace attack is.Abul Hasan is not ready for international cricket yet.But as there is no player in the reserve bench no way but to select him.

Selectors have picked 4 pacers for Team management, now its up to captain and coach to decide whether they will play with 3 pacers, 2 pacers or 4 pacers !

Don't blame selectors for everything. If Nazmul doesn't get a chance to play, then its captain and coaches decision, not selectors.

Shafiul will be slaughtered with his wayward lengths...Nazmul stepson has to wait till his retirement....the three balls from Brett Lee was unbelievable and as we do not have Brett Lee...we need bowlers who will use head and put them in trap

paka juhuri (who is skillful picking real jewel) moyla r moddheyo shona khuje nite parey. meaning, an experienced jeweller can sometimes identify original gold without doing too many tests.

My point is, may be Nazmul did not get a chance during Zim Series but he surely is having net practices. right ? If Nazmul can bowl well in the nets then it would be just matter of time that Pybus picks Nazmul ahead of Abul or any other inexperienced bowlers despite Mushy's disapproval.

Remember how Mortaza was picked ?

shakibrulz
July 3, 2012, 12:52 AM
Shafi should really cut down on the length balls. You might get away with full tosses in T20, but length bowling is bloody awful. Although he is good in helpful conditions, gets the ball to swing like Mashrafe.

I can't understand why they would pick Abul though, isn't he playing in U19 wcup too? And he's far from ready to bowl in T20s. I would much rather have preferred Arafat Sunny, it's a mystery as for why your most consistently economic domestic bowler is not in T20 side.

Sohel
July 3, 2012, 01:14 AM
Well, they're there and I wish all the best. Do I think this is the best we can do for the tour? Hell no! Do you really care? I don't see why you should.

That being said, the continued exclusion of Rumman and Babu is unfortunate. Rumman's a genuine T20 player and Babu's way better than Zia in terms of ability. Both of them are likely to do well in Irish conditions IMO. I'd still bet on Bijauy over Aumi any day. I just hope Shakib's presence doesn't make Riyad revert back to the anti-T20 mode we've seen before.

Also thought that if he was under plans for U 19, he should have played U-19 Asia cup. A blunder from selectors; at first they thought (like me) that Anamul is ready so they brought him into national side, after two/three games all of a sudden it's realized he's not ready, then the inevitable thing happened. So much toll this takes on a young shoulder, really bad planning with one of the best talents around. That's why I think careful and long term plannings are also needed for Mominul. I hope whenever talents like Anamul, Mominul are given chances, that should be for long times. Constant dropping and inclusion hurts confidence

BCB has decided to put Anamul in U19 WC squad because of asia cup disaster and its plan B. This plan was also hinted to press by Lutera Kamal after BCB's emergency meeting. BTW I can understand ur frustation but take it easy cos the lad will still learn :D

That should have been done in Zim series...

Doing it in this series could be damaging for them and the team prior to WC.... Their ideal debut would be at home. In bpl I didn't feel that Mominul was yet prepared for debut though he played a couple of good knocks. I think he will choke if his behind the wkt shots can be disturbed. Haven't seen Shabbir ..... Did he play in bpl??

Well, Jahirul seems not a T20 player and Zunaid has lost it IMHO, thus, we need to fill in the gap, no?

Though, as Zunaid was picked up for the Zimbabwe tour, his presence in this tour is logical too. Now, it's up to big Z if he wants to continue international cricket or not!?

Ireland vs Afghanistan

Day 1
15.35 local time The umpires have called it quits for today. We will try again tommorow. Join us then when hopefully we will get some play. From Conor Hayes in a soaked Clontarf it's goodbye

Day 2
10:46 local Hello and welcome to day 2 of this One Day International. Good news first - It is sunny out here, Bad news - The outfield is in a bad shape and it will be sometime before we see any action. There will be an inspection at 12:00 local.

14.20 After a very long conversation between the two captains, the groundsman and the umpires the game has been called off

Ooh i still remember when naz got SL into 6-5 at 1 stage.........golden oppurtunity that was :)

Anyways this is the team that will be most likely:

Tamim
Ash
Zunaid/Zia
Shakib
Riad
Mushy
Nasir
Mashrafee
Sunny
Nazmul
Shafiul

Lalla will get picked but if he doesnt perform then sunny shud get a chance but high chance that neither performs because of the nature of the wicket. And above that id like to nazmul ahead of abul and shafiul in the pace department.

Isn't this is a prep tour for WC T20, So why BCB reluctant to announce this as WC T20 squad?! If the selections are still in doubt, players wont be motivated to perform & stop thinking beyond it. Although critics will say, this is calander fill up tour. Otherwise whats the point for boards arrange this costly (some say 'meaningless') tour. Dont say unofficial WI tour has somthing to do with this. They should avoid traditional WC squad selection drama for waiting upto last min update. Sould take lesson from last Aussie dissaster in WC due to selection issue, that results in whole CA remodelling in the end.
