Enam is on Gayle's watch list - for the 2nd test!;)

I am hopeful about Abul though. He might do very well in test, never know.
Though, I think, RBX and Shahadat will be in the playing squad for the 1st test.

I'm wondering if the WIndies will choose this match to experiment with playing two spinners AND Sammy to open the bowling....

Possible XI:

1) Gayle
2) Powell
3) Darren Bravo
4) Samuels
5) Shiv
6) Deo or Fuda
7) Ramdin
8) Sammy
9) Narine
10) Rampaul
11) Permaul

‘I got some injury and so could not participate in the fielding practice,’ Tamim told reporters at Mirpur.
‘The team decided to wait until tomorrow [Saturday] to see the improvement and if it does not improve then there could be an X-ray,’ said Tamim.
Vibhab Singh, the national team’s physio, said it was not a serious injury and hoped that it won’t take long for him to recover.
‘He damaged some soft tissues in his right thumb and also injured the middle finger of his left hand. He got some bruises but we are hopeful that he would be okay in a few days,’ said Vibhab.
Tamim is carrying a superb form ahead of the home series against West Indies as he hit three centuries in consecutive innings in the first two matches of the National Cricket League.
Bangladesh will face the visitors in the first Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium from November 13.

'If you don't have fun, you'll struggle in international cricket -Gayle

"If you don't have fun, you'll struggle in international cricket. I am enjoying it, it's good to be back and contributing at the top of the order. Hopefully in the next couple of years, things can get better from a personal point of view. I will try and entertain as much as possible," said Gayle who turned 33 during the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, a tournament that saw West Indies back on the winners' podium after 33 years.

Interesting and even though i'd love to see Permaul partner Narine in the spin department i really can't see it, especially when Deonarine has done so well lately by taking wickets against Aus and NZ, Sammy really does mess things up doesn't he? :facepalm: i don't mind him in the limited overs teams but he just kills us when he plays tests, Permaul's batting down the order would be just as good if not better than Sammy's imo but with the added bonus of Permaul actually taking wickets, sooner rather than later Gibson is gonna have to play Permaul in Sammys place imo.

Jurgensen, however, was happy to see some of the pace bowlers hit the straps in the first-class competition though Rubel Hossain is still going to need more time before he could be asked for long spells. "I am happy with how much they've bowled so far. Shahadat [Hossain] and [Abul Hasan] Raju have been bowling regularly after Eid while Rubel [Hossain] has not, but he's fit to be bowling.

I can see Abul Hasan The Future Shane Watson for Bangladesh. This Boy has something special. I agree with some maybe its too early. but if you look at players like Pat Cummins (Aus) or Adam Milne (NZ) they are similar in age and experience with Abul but yet Team Managment are trusting them. In Australi normally pacers debut at an early age, Jurgensen following the same route. it's not a bad idea to allow pacers like Abul play test match's, we have seen how Australi has produced raw talent in to world class players. I am no way suggesting that Abul might become the Best bowler, but its better to follow a system.

If Gazi will get his debut, we have to take only one pacer which won't be a good decision. Or Sunny must be dropped.

I can see Abul Hasan The Future Shane Watson for Bangladesh. This Boy has something special. I agree with some maybe its too early. but if you look at players like Pat Cummins (Aus) or Adam Milne (NZ) they are similar in age and experience with Abul but yet Team Managment are trusting them. In Australi normally pacers debut at an early age, Jurgensen following the same route. it's not a bad idea to allow pacers like Abul play test match's, we have seen how Australi has produced raw talent in to world class players. I am no way suggesting that Abul might become the Best bowler, but its better to follow a system.

Respectfully disagree. I think he'll be the next Flintoff without a drinking problem. Not just "our own" Freddy but THE Freddy Flintoff 2.0. Watson's not quick enough to be compared to Abul. Wonderful comparison to Cummins BTW :up:

If we were to follow a system, Abul should have played more before thrust into the international arena. No international team plays bowlers as raw as Abul. I will be happy to be wrong, but Abul is likely in for a rough treatment...

Riyad can't be dropped as he is VC. I will have SN dropped for Gazi. 2 pacers, 2 SLAs, 1 offie will be a good bowling attack. But questions is, will they consider Riyad as that offie or Gazi. Riyad bowls well in longer formats and it was he who caused the damage in WI. Naeem can bowl offspin too. Ahhh too many bowling options!!

Shakib also has to move up. He should bat at 4 or 5. 6 is too low for him.

If Abul is really getting chance again, all the best wishes for him then. As if everyone alrady knows he is gonna fail again! Hopefully this Syloti king will save his team and deshi jaat-somman.

why do you Generalise a player by district e.g. Syloti King? is it wrong for a player to come from Sylhet and play for national team, I find it very negative that not only you but anyone pointing fingers at people just becuase they are from certain place in Bangladesh. do you hear people from Sylhet refer to players like Ashraful... The dhakaya King after so many failures? I like to point out that in the upcoming future most or majority of the pacers will come from sylhet. we have some young pace talent and need to guide and develop them well. This will be very good for bangladesh not just for sylhet. The country should come first before district. thanks.

WI has 5-6 lefties. Taking another SLA (Shakib is already there) won't help us. Shohag is a genuine right handed off spinner unlike Riyad. Playing Shohag alongside with Naeem will put more pressure on lefties.

Sohag and Sunny both needs to play. Playing with 4 full time bowler doesn't work in Test. Riyad, Nasir can bowl few here and there but they are not full time bowler. I don't think we should play Naeem at number 3, let him play at number 4. That's the position he has been scoring runs in, no need to change anything around. I would play Naeem instead of Riyad, and Zunaed instead of SN.

Allah help Shakib and Bangladesh, If Elias does not play shakib has to bowl like 50+ overs as SLA alone in the 1st Test. Crisis Awaits us and Shakib's injury... help. I think Saqlain Mustaq is behind the inclusion of Sohag Gazi for the 1st Test.

Dhakablues
November 12, 2012, 12:15 PM
As crappy of a team as we we are in Test cricket, I think, Elias Sunny shouldve been selected. Though, having Gazi brings a variey in our all left arm spin attack and he could be useful, as they are saying, against the leftie batsmen of WI squad. Nevertheless, I think Sunny has the experience needed to take wickets against top class batsmen. Both players have few centuries in First Class cricket and both are effective in domestic circuit. The move to bring in one or the other can prove to be pivotal because an off-form Shakib alone cannot be taking those 20 wickets we need..And Nasir/Naeem/Riad arent taking more than 3-4 wickets in total, I would assume..

I don't think we should play Naeem at number 3, let him play at number 4. That's the position he has been scoring runs in, no need to change anything around. I would play Naeem instead of Riyad, and Zunaed instead of SN.

Actually in Tests, we see teams playing with 4 full time bowlers. For example, Australia is playing with Hilfenhaus, Siddle, Lyon, and Pattinson, then South Africa is playing with Steyn, Morkel, Philander, and Kleinveldt. India usually go with Ishant, Zaheer, Yadav and Ashwin. England goes with Broad, Swann, Anderson and Bresnan. So it's not uncommon to play with 4 full time bowlers. Since Shakib is basically a full time bowler, that's why we're seeing the team management batting up to 8 and then the rest are filled with full timers. I don't mind that but I feel we should not overwork Shakib the way we have. Let him focus more on his batting while Sohag and Elias bowl the bulk of the bowling.

AsifTheManRahman

I don't see the point of playing both Naeem and Mahmudullah either. Going by:

a) Recent form in Tests/FC
b) Combination

I don't see how Mahmudullah gets in. It's obvious he's an auto-choice because of his Vice Captaincy, which is sad. Yes, Nafees and Zunaed are generally useless too, but at least they are riding on the back of a couple of big scores and are top order batsmen, which means they are not in direct competition with the VC.

I don't think we need eight batsmen. Nasir is playing primarily as a batsman and making him come in at #8 is a waste. If we must, he should bat at #7, but no lower. I have no problems with Gazi's inclusion, but I think we can play both him and Elias. I get the LHB argument, but Elias has been successful against LHBs in the past too. If he and Shohag are indeed as good with the bat as everyone claims, then we should have no issues playing seven batsmen.

Shakib should be reprieved - bowling 50 overs can't be good for his knee. The Elias-Shakib-Gazi combo would have been ideal, because without Elias, we're effectively playing 2.5 bowlers, if I may be so generous as to assign a 0.5 to our pacers combined.

But this isn't the final line-up, so we'll see how it goes tonight. Can't wait.

As usual, if Tamim and Shakib don't fire, we won't reach 150 or take as many as 4/5 wickets. The guy with the second best performance in the NCL this year made those runs off tons of spin bowling and perhaps a few overs of third class pace bowling. How do we even expect him to have an answer for Rampaul/Fidel? And if Naeem can't, how do we expect SN/Riyad to not get blown away?

That's more moronic than defensive... Adding another specialist bowler (Sunny) would still be defensive .. But that's some how acceptable.

Actually in Tests, we see teams playing with 4 full time bowlers. For example, Australia is playing with Hilfenhaus, Siddle, Lyon, and Pattinson, then South Africa is playing with Steyn, Morkel, Philander, and Kleinveldt. India usually go with Ishant, Zaheer, Yadav and Ashwin. England goes with Broad, Swann, Anderson and Bresnan. So it's not uncommon to play with 4 full time bowlers. Since Shakib is basically a full time bowler, that's why we're seeing the team management batting up to 8 and then the rest are filled with full timers. I don't mind that but I feel we should not overwork Shakib the way we have. Let him focus more on his batting while Sohag and Elias bowl the bulk of the bowling.


The way I see it, if 7 batsman can't get the job done I doubt one extra batsman will make all that much of a difference. Plus when we are talking about Aus, SA, Eng you can expect all four of their bowlers to deliver. Tha'ts not the case with our bowlers. Also if we play Sohag and Sunny, we are still playing with 8 batsman.

Then how many bowlers do you want? I still think 4 specialist bowlers is the way to go. Riyad is a good enough spinner in the longer format as far as our standard goes and is very much capable as a 5th bowler. Now, if you take both Sunny/Gazi, then we have 6 bowlers without Naeem and Nasir. That's just way too many.

In Tests, a bowler has to be patient. Its not ODI or T20, where you contain the batsmen and keep rotating bowlers. In Tests, you have to let your slow bowler bowl for long spells and have close-in fielders and wait for the edges. In that case, they have to maintain a very accurate line and length. The pacers has to bowl at the fifth stump on a consistent basis. The odd outswinger will have the edge and inswinger will have LBWs. That's why 4 is good and you can have Riyad bowl when sessions are about to end.

Gazi should be in the team, he can also bat somewhat. Playing a batsman at no 8 like Riyadh/Nasir can't bring any good. We have to get out of this defensive mentality by overloading the team with batsman and besides it's too much workload for Shakib.

Now, if you take both Sunny/Gazi, then we have 6 bowlers without Naeem and Nasir. That's just way too many.

Where do you see 6/7 bowlers? this is not ODI, a bowler is who can take wickets, containing bowlers are basically batsmen and bowls fillers in test cricket. Specialist bowlers means, their main job is bowling for taking wickets...Shakib is an all rounder and you should use him with some balance, so you have 3 specialist bowlers if you drop sunny.

You expect your main 4 bowlers to do the majority bowling and take the majority wickets and also ensure adequate rests for them to be effective...that's when the part timers comes in...5/6 part time bowlers. If we have Shakib in 5 bowlers, then you don't need Mullah/Nasir/SN ---- at least one of them you can safely drop...then you have a balance between batting and bowling.....

Mullah, Nasir, Nayeem etc will be able to chip in a few overs ...to give the main bowlers a bit rest and thats a happy hour for batsmen, you can't expect much from them. If they bowl too long (Which they will, if you take only three specialist bowlers), opponents will chip in with additional 100/150 runs before you realize...if they dont bowl for too long, the 3 main bowlers tire out, so you need bowlers who will ensure a rest for other bowlers but no rest for the batsman.

That's why you need Sunny as the specialist 4th bowler, instead of a bits and pieces all rounder like Mullah or a Batsman scoring by chance (SN/JS).

Might have a look at this thread, to have a quick idea to find out if you can call Riyad/Nasir/Nayeem bowlers for test cricket:

TOP SPINNERS..... (http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/showthread.php?t=42240)

4. Mahmudullah/Naeem/Nasir should only be in the team because of their batting performance. Their bowling in first class cricket justifies little to proclaim them as an good bowler.

I can see Abul Hasan The Future Shane Watson for Bangladesh. This Boy has something special. I agree with some maybe its too early. but if you look at players like Pat Cummins (Aus) or Adam Milne (NZ) they are similar in age and experience with Abul but yet Team Managment are trusting them. In Australi normally pacers debut at an early age, Jurgensen following the same route. it's not a bad idea to allow pacers like Abul play test match's, we have seen how Australi has produced raw talent in to world class players. I am no way suggesting that Abul might become the Best bowler, but its better to follow a system.

If Abul is really getting chance again, all the best wishes for him then. As if everyone alrady knows he is gonna fail again! Hopefully this Syloti king will save his team and deshi jaat-somman.

why do you Generalise a player by district e.g. Syloti King? is it wrong for a player to come from Sylhet and play for national team, I find it very negative that not only you but anyone pointing fingers at people just becuase they are from certain place in Bangladesh. do you hear people from Sylhet refer to players like Ashraful... The dhakaya King after so many failures? I like to point out that in the upcoming future most or majority of the pacers will come from sylhet. we have some young pace talent and need to guide and develop them well. This will be very good for bangladesh not just for sylhet. The country should come first before district. thanks.

My apology to call him king instead of royal (ref. bpl). Me & boka vai only are actually agreed with whaever you think about Abulillah and wish him for best unlike others. And you somehow finds negetivity in between words! blah! we were suposed to be in same side! :facepalm: Syloti and all others are same projaati in BD, nothing special should be there to get scratched so easily.

Well according to daily star, Abul, Nazim and Sunny are out of playing 11. That's a blunder! There is no need to play 2 off form batsmen like Riyad and SN. I mean I would rather play Sunny instead of above 2 or JS. With only one specialist spinner in Gazi, who is going debut, it's just too much task on Shakib and Gazi.

November 12, 2012, 04:34 PM
I can't see Sohag and Elias both making the cut. Sohag's inclusion (I would guess) is highly unlikely. He's a right arm offspinner who can't bat, we already have a decent offspinner who can also occupy the crease in either Naeem or Riyad.

I expect to see the following bowlers:

Shakib, Shahadat, Abul Hasan, Elias and Rubel.

Back up bowling to be provided by Naeem, Riyad, Nasir etc. If Elias has a bad match, I expect Enamul to be called up for the next test.

Good luck BD...

Where do you see 6/7 bowlers?

If we take both Sunny/Gazi then we have, Rubel, Shahadat, Shakib, Sunny, Gazi, Riyad. That's 6 bowlers for you and if you count Naeem/Nasir as 0.25 each then its 6.5. Riyad/Naeem will be the part timers who will bowl during the close of sessions or to make the ball old.

Shakib is an all rounder and you should use him with some balance, so you have 3 specialist bowlers if you drop sunny.

There are concerns for Shakib and rightly so. But I can guarantee that he won't be used a part timer and in fact will bowl the most overs among all the bowlers.

Sorry the reply was still under construction...:)

Check Riyad's first class stats...

And yes, Shakib was under a lots of pressure in the past to take wickets, so he was over used, that's affecting his batting and harming him physically and deteriorating his bowling in the long term due to over use. We can't keep doing it when we have options.

It really makes no sense depending on bits and pieces bowlers like Riyad, Nasir in Test cricket.

I will be shocked .... If I see the team is like what Abu2Abu bhai is suggesting...might go on comma seeing Abul-Shahadat duo...haha...:) but he may be right with Abul, since Rubel may not be match fit.... But Gazi is in for sure...and I still think Sunny will be in for Riyad/SN.

I know what you mean :) Having Nasir come at number 8 is not a wise decision also. But I am just concerned about batting. If we do take both Gazi and Sunny then the batting becomes weak. SN/JS/Mullah are likely to fail. It then all comes to Tamim/Shakib/Mushy on batting.

Coming to think of it, we depend on Shakib when bowling. We also depend on Shakib on batting. In Test,ODIs,T20. Shakib na thakle ki je hoito.

Don't they understand the difference between Sunny and Mullah, Nasir, Nayeem all 3 put together?? Such nonsense. Their mindset is still ODI/T20...

Hasn't this pitch favoured pacers more than spinners this season? If this is what they suspected then I can see the reasoning behind picking Shahadat, Rubel, Shakib, Sohag and Riyad as the bowlers. No point picking an army of spinners then finding that the pitch isn't all that helpful to spin.
Also I would have preferred Nazmul Hossain over Rubel but that was never likely to happen given the way Nazmul was treated in the past.
I think the new ball will swing and the top order batsmen are going to be truly tested by the WI pacers and if they are not on their A game then this could be over in 4 days.

Mushy simply lacks common sense. He needs to understand spinners are ourstrength, not pacers. Only time we actually won a test in BD is becasue of Enam. He needs to be dropped from captaincy. He is too busy setting up fielding all the time and gets distracted on wicket keeping resulting match losing dropped cathces. He has been awefully porr in terms of team selection (I am sure dropping sunny has something to do with his inputs at least to some extent), bowling rotation, and making good judgement.

It is good to see Naeem back; how did he improve though? Is it based on his performance in the BD first class only. I wonder if he has toured with BD A after losing his spot in the national team.

Got Vizio Co-star hooked up with 46" LED TV to watch it high def from ESPN3. Probably the best viewing setup I ever had. :)

I will probably take my laptop in for the final session tonight and hook it up to a 47" Toshiba Regza with my HDMI cable. I think its a 1080p but I'm not too familiar with these details. It depends on the ESPN3 stream quality minute to min fluctuations which I suspect depends in turn on bandwidth availability in my area.

High Speed Internet helps... at least 20 MBPS download speed should do!

I just have comcast regular cable....I can download Law and Order episodes at up to 600 kbps, but average is more like 300-400. Dunno what that makes it.

তবে দুপুরের সংবাদ সম্মেলনে মুশফিক বলে গিয়েছিলেন, দল হবে আজ সকালে উইকেট দেখে। উইকেট হালকা ঘাস থাকলে তিন পেসার নিয়ে খেলতে পারেন। -----you must be kidding me! Playing 3 pacers? Mushy simply lacks common sense. He needs to understand spinners are ourstrength, not pacers. Only time we actually won a test in BD is becasue of Enam. He needs to be dropped from captaincy. He is too busy setting up fielding all the time and gets distracted on wicket keeping resulting match losing dropped cathces. He has been awefully porr in terms of team selection (I am sure dropping sunny has something to do with his inputs at least to some extent), bowling rotation, and making good judgement. I mean he choses to field when he should be batting, his mistakes are costing us matches. Shakib should be the captain, hands down.

even if the pitch is super friendly, Two Solid seamers would do. Two Quality seamers is a better option then three toothless bowlers who can't make use of the conditions.
Gazi Sunny and Shakib could be a very lethal combination! if one of these spinners have an off day the other could pick the bowling unit up

Bat first or last, West Indies is the closest opponent we can defeat in order to survive test cricket.
ok maybe New Zealand but West Indies in Home conditions ain't that far. This is an ideal opportunity.

Unfortunately they don't have much option. If the pacers were good enough I'm sure they would play them.

To be honest I don't think Shahadat is good enough to be in the team either.

Without The Abul, Gayle will score his 3rd test 300 by lunch tomorrow. Without Nazza!, we won't be able reply in kind.

Unbelievable that Sunny got dropped. Truely, beyond belief. He absolutely should have played in place of Naeem. Horrible selection! Anyway...

Even WI is playing with 2 pacers, most importantly the got 2 specialist spinner... It means Shakib is being treated as our strike bowler...along with gazi.... which will put pressure on Shak again.. Also I heard his spinning fingure is still injured....Should have played sunny in this game and lets shak concentrate more on batting..

Sohel bhai how they could have done this...no worries allround Shahadat Sharapova Shahrukh khan will take care of Gayle and also open the batting with TIK

I also can't believe that Sunny got dropped. I don't understand the selection policy. First they dropped Enamul, now they dropped Sunny. I really hope and pray that Gazi clicks otherwise this match will be over in three days.
