After the heartbreak in the first test, I have no expectation from this team. Clearly, Junaid and Shahriar has no business in being in the team. If the selectors use their brain and not their gut, they will kick out the deadweight named Shahadat from the team permanently. Nazmul is the ideal replacement for him, but we all know that he will not make it. If one player is responsible for the debacle, it is Junaid. If he does not drop those catches in the second inning, our target would have been less than 150. I was in favor of giving him another chance, but that was before these drops. He has to go.

Here is my team:

Tamim Iqbal
Naeem Islam
Anamul Haque
Shakib Al Hasan
Mushfiqur Rahim
Nasir Hossain
Mahmudullah
Sohag Gazi
Elias Sunny
Nazmul Hossain
Rubel Hossain

Shuza bhai, we dont have Anamul and Nazmul in the 15 men squad.

Good luck with your first match thread.
It will also be a debut for Khulna as test venue.
Hope the City of my birth will bring good luck to the Tigers and we can register the win that slipped right under us in the first test.

I am 110% with u....u read my mind.....u r right, those catches let us down.. but not only catches....zunaied can't face bounce and pace...those stuff give wi first bowlers boost.....shahadat is worthless....atleast abul hasan has pace....he will play...mominul should play instead of naffes...he got another 100...anamul as soon as possible....we need fresh blood...instead of dead morons.:up:

Good luck Shuja Bhai..

I see some of you are asking for Anamul and Enam.. Our selectord have declared unchanged team for the 2nd test. So its Not happening. Junaed is absolutely garbage. Cant bat, cant field. Nazim , SN are all crap. I would pick none of them. But based on the current XIV SN will be on my team as an opener

My XI

1 Tamim
2 Mofees
3 Riyad
4 Naeem
5 Shakib/Nasir
6 Nasir/Shakib
7 Mushy
8 Gazi
9 Sunny (He can also hold the bat)
10 Shahadat

I'll be more than happy if 5/8 batsmen gets out in 90s again. I'd take that with 3 hands. But I highly doubt it will happen. They are demoralized. And as always expect a horrible show after a (relatively) "good" performance.

Our only issue will be whether the selectors choose to play with six batters now after the scare we had in the first test, had Deonarine been in the side i highly doubt we would have got bowled out for 273 in the second innings, the problem is if he comes in it's likely to be for a spinner, Permaul done very well on debut so i'm not sure he will be dropped, while Narine is one of our key players so he's not likely to be dropped either,

Personally i'd go in with six batters, it was too close for comfort in the last game and we've got a lead to protect now, i'd rather have the batting security than to be sweating on the last day again, although to be fair we won without any contribution from Samuels and Gayle in both innings and Chanders in the second, i can't see the first two failing that badly again in the second test but who knows!!,

All in all my gut tells me they'll probably go in with the same team as the first test, i just hope that if we bat first and get a big score we don't foolishly decare early again.

I don't see Narine getting dropped nor Permaul, who doesn't deserve to be dropped. Supposing Gayle and Samules hit form in the 2nd Test, someone has to lose form. You'll never see an innins where all 6 guys score centuries. I'll admit Sammy's declaration was a bit early, but had he waited till 627 to declare, the match would very likely have ended in a draw.

It should change the squad dropping Junaid and including Anamul. But we have no option without rearranging the players. We should try Nafees in opening and include Sunny or Junaid in #3.

Everyone needs to stop pushing Naeem up the order, just STOP! Why? Tell me why he should bat higher than last time? "We don't have a solid #3# is not a good enough reason, b/c we have had trouble with number 4.

Gowza
November 19, 2012, 06:04 AM
i think probably put junaid at #3 since that's where he performed his best so far in his test career, as an opener he averages 16.92 in 13 innings, as a #3 he averages 32.26 in 23 innings which includes his one and only test century so really if junaid plays he should play at #3.

nazimuddin should get the 2nd opener spot, SN isn't up to test cricket and even though i don't think nazimuddin has the technique he has proved consistent domestically (even if it's in the middle order) and he was the 2nd test opener in the previous series so give him another chance since he scored ok.

keep naeem at #4, let's make him the permanent #4 as long as he's scoring. i really think mominul or anamul should be the #3 atm but they're not in the squad so obviously they won't be playing.

Ian Pont
November 19, 2012, 06:51 AM
You just gotta question the squad selection when players like Anamul don't make the cut and Sunny doesn't make the team. The way the pacers are bowling, I would play just two of them (Rubel and Nazmul) and play Anamul for SN and Nazmul for Shahadat.

I like Silversurf's team above.... but time to unleash the anamul

1. Tamim
2. Anamul (give him a long run at it)
3. Nasir
4. Naeem
5. Shakib
6. Mushy
7. Riad
8.Gazi
9.Sunny
10. Rubel
11. Nazmul

I said in 2010 that BD management need to develop new fast bowling all rounders like Dollar. Still nothing on the horizon.

Gowza
November 19, 2012, 06:58 AM
nazmul should have always been in the XI and rubel is the best developing pacer we've got atm in terms of pace, ability to improve, weapons and experience (not that he has much but he has more than others). interested to see how sajidul does for the rest of the season because back when he played for the national team he did have good pace and could swing the ball and he's started the current NCL season well.

as far as fast bowling allrounders i guess alauddin is the new promsing one who has jumped the ranks recently. though ziaur is favoured by the selectors.

Gowza
November 19, 2012, 07:20 AM
wow nasir at 3, don't think many have suggested that, he does have the temperament though. however i think i'd prefer to see mominul get a chance at #3, have anamul open and nasir can have riyad's spot at #7. then i think they should stick with that line-up for awhile so they get a few games together and become a strong unit. biggest for the batting are #2 and #3, so the sooner anamul and mominul get in there (or if nasir can do the #3 job then that's great to) the better and the sooner the team can build themselves into that strong batting unit.

WarWolf
November 19, 2012, 08:47 AM
I like the squad suggested by Ian.

Anamul has been in top form for last couple of months. It's high time to give him a debut in longer format. Home series is the best option for that.

Anamul couldn't make it in the longer version due to the incompetency of the selectors. I am afraid the selectors will bring him in for ODI series. Anamul is yet to find his rhythm in limited over games. He averages only 16.28 in List A where he averages more than 45 in FC matches.

Our selectors doesn't understand that. I am pretty much sure we will see him in ODI series. Poor Anamul!!

AsifTheManRahman
November 19, 2012, 09:16 AM
wow nasir at 3
It's not a bad idea. Ideally, I'd like to see Nasir continue at #7 provided that we find a suitable #3. But that isn't going to happen, so screw that. I support what Ian has done here picking 7 batsmen, both Gazi and Sunny and Nazmul instead of SRK. If 7 batsmen can't get the job done, 8 can't. Would be nice to get to a point where we can play someone as good as Nasir at #7, but who am I kidding.

Actually, that's right, who am I kidding? Regardless of who you pick, he's probably going to be another idiot in a pool of idiots who will contribute to more humiliation for us.

I probably just like any other Bangladesh supporter was disappointed that Bangladesh blew it away in the last test I mean the win let alone the draw was there for the taking but overall they did honestly played well especially since their last test was almost a year.

As for this second and final test match, we need to make sure that the pitch is not as flat as the last one otherwise you are most likely expected to expect the same thing. Bangladesh players are much better playing spin than pace so it would be the safest of option so that it will at least give us a chance.

About the squad for the second test match, it will still remain the same but this is how I will select the best 11 just to shape it up a bit:

01.Tamim Iqbal
02.Shahriar Nafees
03.Nasir Hossain (might as well test it have nothing to lose)
04.Naeem Islam
05.Saqibul Hasan
06.Mushfiqur Rahim
07.Mahmudullah Riyad
08.Sohag Gazi
09.Elias Sunny
10.Rubel Hossain
11.Abul Hasan (Might as well as a test who knows? he might do far better than Shahadat Hossain)

Honestly, I still do not understand why Bangladesh are giving so many chances to players like Shahadat, Junaed Siddique etc because they have not really learnt from their past mistakes and its time to move on and groom young players like Anamul Haque.

I said in 2010 that BD management need to develop new fast bowling all rounders like Dollar. Still nothing on the horizon.

Don't you think putting Nasir at #3 is too high coach? He does have his fair share of problems against pace bowling. Then again SN and Junaid are also clueless against pacers. So may not be a bad idea. Also I agree, Anamul should've been playing in this Test match. We need to find suitable top order batsmen fast. No point of waiting around. SN and Junaid are not long term answers.

Also agree with your bowling lineup. Despite a worse average, Rubel is the better bowler compared to Shahadat. You don't need stats to prove that. Just watch both of them and you'll know who is the better bowler.

AsifTheManRahman
November 19, 2012, 10:06 AM
Batting at #7, Nasir will face his share of old ball as well as new ball bowling, not to mention spin. Actually, anyone who aspires to become a good Test batsman will have to learn to bat in phases against spin and pace, be it new ball or old ball. So the argument of picking/not picking someone for a particular position based on what kind of bowling they are more comfortable facing I think doesn't apply as much in Tests as it does in the shorter versions. That's the beauty of Test cricket - you have a thousand different scenarios to bat in and must be able to thrive in all.

Agreed. This is why our players struggle in Tests. They might be good in 1 skill but in another skill they are weak. They aren't well rounded enough which is why you might see them doing well 2-3 days but not a full 5 days.

MyRoom
November 19, 2012, 10:29 AM
For now I would gamble and put Nasir at 3 but really that position belongs to Anamul Haque who needs to play at least a few games this series but definitely by the Zimbabwe series early next year.

Ooops! Let's just STOP being emotional and Pathetic

DON'T we aware::
Even though WI lost only 4 wickets and scored 527 in their first innings they lost 9 wickets in 23 overs just scoring 64 runs in their 2nd innings !!!!

Our best team batting effort produced only 488 against a very weak Zimbabwe team before this match, now it is 556 against a new look much better WI

In Test Cricket History out of 251 First innings >=500 run score this is only 16th successfully overhauling >500 runs, so our boys did a wonderful job in their First Innings. We should feel proud

Although WI couldn't able to survive more than 23 overs (after the pitch started behaving a little bit different) our boys kept their head up and face WI attack for 54.3 overs in the same pitch.

Obviously if they are not advised wrongly by team management and allowed to play their natural game (what they played in their First Innings) they could chase down the runs and won the match for us.

CONFIDENCE is SUCCESS
our team need to understand they are very much capable of win it
they are getting a second chance, now they should win it.......

Go TIGERS Go........

NOTE:
To win a test against this WI team we should use a flat pitch with less bounce.

Two players definitely don't merit a place in the team.

Junaid "the leaky finger" Siddiqui: if he does not drop Powel, we win the match. Period.
Shahadat "I grunt like Seles" Hossain: he is a wash-out and Boycott's mother bowls faster.


The selectors have outdone themselves.

If Tamim is okay to play, will they kick out the bum Junaid "I am consistent" Siddique. (He averages 26.18 in test, 23.00 in ODI, 22.71 in T20, 28.29 in FC, 24.58 in List A, and 18.74 in Twenty20. A true model of consistency, in addition to being a leaky "I lose tests by myself" finger.)

ZS must go. He's the most over rated player in the BD squad. There are far better talents than that of his. His average is very poor which is a testament to the the way he plays. He needs to go back to drawing board and enhance his batting skills and come back good. In the mean time make way for someone else. His performance is just like Ash's. Once in a blue moon. The selectors only pick him for his experience. I don't see any other reasons. He didn't exactly have a fantastic time batting in the NCL yet he was selected over other talents.

I am sick of seeing him playing for our country. The selectors should be ashamed of themselves.

Don't you think putting Nasir at #3 is too high coach?

No. That's why I had him there.

I like his temperament and would like to see him told to "just bat" as long as he can. he has the shots, but needs to learn how to play an innings, in the way that Matt Prior can (also talented batter who IMO should bat higher for England).

Ian Pont
November 19, 2012, 04:58 PM
Pont bhai, if you were still our coach, do you think the bowling department would be performing better?

No disrespect to SJ.

I hope so, yes. Shafiul has fallen away badly and none of the people I spoke about or worked with during my tenure (Rabbi, Robin, Dollar, Shahadat, etc etc) have come through or even improved. So I think it IS a disappointing time for BD bowlers since April 2011.

I don't see any new faces either who really deserve a chance in the side yet (and I mean deserve as opposed to someone selected because the alternatives are too poor).

This may not be the fault of SJ because his role might be very specific to the national squad and not development.

However, getting the very best out of what you DO have is the main focus. I'm beginning to think BD has missed a trick with that at least. I cannot comment how NZ went as a fast bowling unit under SJ as I don't know enough about them (except the Banglawash in 2010).

I guess ultimately, people's results are their results and others than me, can probably reveal the win/loss and bowling successes.

MyRoom
November 19, 2012, 05:13 PM
Shafiul Islam is okay for ODIs but he doesn't try to improve his physique which will make a real difference to the way he bowls but I have really been impressed with Nazmul Hossain who by the way should be playing those test matches. For the test match coming up soon, I will stick with Rubel so he can build on considering he had a surgery and Abul Hasan for Shahadat just to see how well he does in that format after all, Bangladesh really have nothing to lose at this moment. A 3 way pace attack in ODIs consisting of Mashrafe, Rubel and Nazmul will do wonders for us for sure.

MyRoom
November 19, 2012, 05:24 PM
Anamul Haque should play and even if he did struggle so be, he'll just use that experience which will give him confidence and come back strong before he makes his full-time debut. I've seen him play a few times earlier this year and he seems to struggle to deal with extreme pace but fantastic against spin bowlers but its a gamble worth taking. Mind you he was the top scorer at the recently concluded Under-19 World Cup by a long margin and has been in top form in NCL last season as well as this season.

Well coach. You know cricket better than I do. I agree though. Nasir does have the ability and determination to bat at #3. He's our 3rd best batsman in my opinion and since Tamim is needed at the opener's slot and Shakib has too much responsibility to bat at #3, Nasir isn't a bad option there.

I agree with you 100% coach. Let Tamim and Nafees open the innings, Nasir at # 3, then Naeem, Shakib and others to follow. I also like to mahmudullah before mushy in the batting order. Another thing, putting nasir # 3 team can maintain a left-right combo of batsman for a long time.

Agreed. This is why our players struggle in Tests. They might be good in 1 skill but in another skill they are weak. They aren't well rounded enough which is why you might see them doing well 2-3 days but not a full 5 days.

If if only they have two quality all above:
1. patience
2. shot selection.

i liked to hear it from naeem after 1st innings of the 1st test that he have decided not to play too many shot, only those shot that he have selected. That is a good example. good thinking. Even if anyone can remember, sachin tendulker also follow this rule during one of his tour to eng or aus, that he will not play all the shots, only selective shots to those ball which is appropriate for that shot. Let the other balls go or defend. Very simple thing but bd batters didn't learn. They only think if I can hit 4's & 6's then I am a big batsman, crowd will cheer in my name. I will be a big star. very very wrong thinking in the arena of test cricket. Till date, batting in test cricket needs the two basic things :
1. patience
2. shot selection.

If my memory serves me right, it was a tour to Australia where the Aussies had a game-plan to bowl consistently wide of off stump to Tendulkar and frustrate him to go for a loose drive. He got out cheaply a couple of times before he decided that he will not play on the off side at all and only try to score off deliveries aimed at the stumps. If i am not mistaken he got a century in that game.

Junaid is good as gone. Will be replaced by either Nazim or Anamul. It seems that team management is not as keen on dropping SN. In my opinion, both should get the chop. Not confident in Nazim at all but have to give him a try after Junaid and SN's failures.

সেক্ষেত্রে তামিম ইকবালের সঙ্গে ব্যাটিং ওপেন করতে পারেন নাজিমউদ্দিন। শাহরিয়ার নাফীস, নাঈম ইসলাম, সাকিব আল হাসান, মুশফিকুর রহিম, নাসির হোসেন, মাহমুদউল্লাহ, সোহাগ গাজী, রুবেল হোসেন ও সাহাদাত হোসেন আগের জায়গায় খেলতে পারেন। [/বাংলা]

Is Mushy afraid to bring a good competitor in the team?

We are a group of cowards. Having an extra batsman would help us scoring 1 thousands runs in an innings? An extra spinner like Sunny would be much more worthy than a cheap batsman like SN. But we have the hearts of chickens.

Our team should be renamed to CHICKENS, not tigers.

This time my predictions are not good :(

Ok let me think positive

1. Tamim- 150+
2. Nazim- 200 ball 50
3. SN- 30ish
4. Naeem- 100
5. Shakib- 98 + 5 wicket haul
6. Mushy- 35-45
7. Riyad- 50+
8. Nasir- 55-65
9. Gazi- 5 wicket haul
10.SRK- golla or Sunny- 5 wicket haul
11. Rubel- 3 wkt



BTW I don't think Anamul is playing as they asked Nazim to practice so he is coming in for ZS...

We have a bit of situation. We need to play with 4 bowler +shakib. But we dont have any solid #3 and cant drop nasir/riyad, on top of that they cant bat at#3. So we have to play with imbalanced team.

Still will not believe if Nazimuddin and Shahadat are selected even though they were the ones that cost really us the Asia Cup. Number 2 ranked all-rounder Shakib needs to find his form again and it would be a wise move to select Anamul considering he plays for Khulna anyway.

Anamul was best batsman in last under19 WC , also scored century in longer version of NCL tournament. Still not considered to be in the Eleven ! 1st eleven is selected my captain and the coach. May be Mushy is scared of Anamul's performance , so manipulating coach to keep him outside!!

I don't think Rahim alone can veto Anamul. Don't accuse him like that blindly.

As you can see, selectors are being very protective with Anamul, probably because they don't want to drop him in the next series. If he gets picked I want him to ply at least two whole season.

how are selectors protective with anamul?

surely this is the best moment for Anamul to debut as The Pitch seems batting friendly and The Bowling attack of WI is not too threatening. I think its the best moment that he should be given a chance, even if he fails he can go back and improve at domestic and Bangladesh A team level before the next series.

Umm because if he fails surely they will "have to" drop him on the next series, as usual.

If my memory serves me right, it was a tour to Australia where the Aussies had a game-plan to bowl consistently wide of off stump to Tendulkar and frustrate him to go for a loose drive. He got out cheaply a couple of times before he decided that he will not play on the off side at all and only try to score off deliveries aimed at the stumps. If i am not mistaken he got a century in that game.

We are not expecting our batsmen to be of Tendulkar's class yet, but some discipline would help our cause.

Its best to freshen things up bring in Anamul and Abul for Zunaed and Shahadat we have nothing to lose anyway. It important though we finally win the toss and bat. The Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna looks fantastic with all that forest behind it surprised the last time it held International matches was way back in 06.

What has he done with the pace? Abul Hasan is still way too raw. I am worried that they might be ruining him by bringing him in before he is ready. But, I would love if he proves me wrong.

Getting my optimist hat on, despite Rubel's struggles initially, he's turned himself in to a pretty reliable pacer for ODI's. He too was a guy that came in very early but has matured with time. Hopefully in the recent future, he'll also turn himself in to a good Test pacer as well.

True Abul is a very raw and young bowler but maybe just maybe he can become a bowler on Rubel Hossain's level in a few years and then can take his game to the next level after. I'm really hoping so. He does seem to have the qualities to be a good pacer at this level although not a lot of people see that right now.

1 thing for sure is that I would have him playing rather than Shahadat. He hasn't learned after all these years and unlike Rubel, has not improved in years. So why not give Abul a run and see if he can improve with time?

From the FC/Test stats, Nazmul is equipped to be a better test bowler. Also, anyone who watched him knows that he possesses the guile and variations to be successful in tests. He is not a slow bowler. He generally operates in the 120-130 kph range, occasionally dialing up to 135. But, he must rub someone the wrong way to get the stepson treatment.

Also when our best pacer in history, Mashrafe loses matches with his appalling old ball/death over bowling, what can we expect from the rest of our pacers?

If you have speed in addition to variations and accuracy, you are an elite bowler. But, you can be medium pace and elite. BTW, you might have heard of a few slow bowlers like Hadlee, Botham, Kapil Dev, McGrath, Vaas, Lillee (2nd half), Holding (2nd half), Andy Roberts (2nd half), who were much more successful compared to speedstars like Abul Hasan.

also waqar towards the end was bowling high 120s-low 130s. however i think with mcgrath people tend to forget he genuinely bowled 135-140 regularly even in the latter part of his career. stuart clark however, he was a very good pacer who bowled mostly in the high 120s.

It doesn't matter how good or bad your pacers are you must have a minimum of 2 in a team in any sort of pitch. Tamim looks set to play but I will still continue to play Anamul for Zunaed and change Shahadat for Abul. It may be risky but dropping Shariar Nafees for another specialist spinner Sunny would be a good idea but it would mean Bangladesh would have to bat extremely cautious and well. Abul has pace may not be quite close to Lee or Akhter but the fact he can bowl more than 85mph consistently can only benefit us.

CI: More bouncers await stunned Bangladesh
Neither of Junaid Siddique or Shahriar Nafees have played genuine fast bowling regularly in the domestic circuit and that is why their struggles have come as soon as they faced the type again at the international stage

That's a problem we have to address otherwise our struggle in International Cricket will continue. Domestic circuit is of course to be blamed because our batsman hardly face this kind of bowling also we need to alter some of our Cricket pitches because if these batsman cannot play the short ball well on slow pitches then can you imagine how difficult it would be for them to face proper fast bowlers on fast bouncy pitches? :o

ajke kobor ase re...Tino beast and Ravi will cause havoc with bouncers and beamers....will they include another quick...I doubt this test we will do that good like what we did last time our inconsistence records tell it all....if ZS gets dropped i guess Anamul or Nazza will replace him, I am still not sure SN got lucky and will also be painful to watch...and not sure if Shahadat is working on to be eligible to play for BD women team.

According to various newspapers Abul will make his debut and Nazim will open with Tamim. So no Anamul..

I doubt Abul will debut...if he does, he's going to be taken to the cleaners like no one has ever before. No swing, no seam, just a bit of pace, no bounce...on a flat track he'll be massacred so bad we'll be screaming for the Rajib. But I think the management will go with Rajib over Abul. I also doubt Anamul will debut. Think tank is conservative, they will drop JS and play Nazim and keep SN.

"Nazimuddin may open the innings if the axe falls on Junaed, who even struggled against pace bowling in the nets here. The team management was in two minds about him as some were of the opinion that it would not be a good idea to drop a player after a poor match."

:facepalm: :facepalm:

Neither Junaid's the answer nor Nazim is. So why not give Anamul a shot here if our other top order batsmen are struggling against pace in the nets?

On a dead flat pitch in Chittagong. Also only 1 innings doesn't prove anything. He's gotten quite a few chances in international cricket and he got exposed pretty badly in the innings he's played.

As much as many of us here devalue the NCL, on the contrary, it is clear that those who work hard and perform consistently have what it takes to make it count (at least when they are on good form) to the international level. The examples are plenty: Sunny, Gazi, Riyad(scored three centuries in a row in NCL and then scored a century in NZ), Naeem, Nazimuddin(last year he was on good form). This has been true for many cases.

Now Imagine the possibilities when we include sporting pitches and NCL further improves....

Gowza
November 20, 2012, 06:42 PM
the difficulty i have with nazimuddin is that he has one positive, which is he's performed consistently in the NCL for many years. but with that one positive comes many worries in that his technique is pretty horrible and even though they aren't test cricket his overall performance in the international arena suggests he doesn't have what it takes to be successful at the highest level, but then you look at his specific test record and he's been ok. also his NCL record has mainly been compiled in the middle order and he's been selected as an opener in tests/international cricket.

on one hand i'm thinking to myself there is no way he will survive in tests because of his technique and his t20I and ODI records. on the other hand i'm saying he's been one of the most consistent NCL performers for years and his FC record is clearly better than his record in the shorter formats.

November 20, 2012, 07:04 PM
Nazza! simply needs to avoid succumbing to the brain fart illness that has ruined the careers of many of our players including SN and Junaid. All Nazza! needs to do is negotiate the new ball... leave as much as possible for the first half hour and score the odd single when the bowler bowls a bad ball. Tamim from the other end will take care of the boundaries.

I agree that NCL stats haven't been total flukes. Naeem and Gazi are recent examples of that.

Watching Nazim bat though, I just don't see him succeeding. I'd really love to be proven wrong though.

I agree with you on raising the quality of the pitches in the NCL in order to have a better competition.

i think when it comes to NCL stats the batting stats seem to be more accurate than the bowling stats i.e. the successful and consistent batsmen in the NCL are starting to show to be the more successful ones in international cricket to (naeem, tamim, rahim in the last DPL, shakib, nasir). i think it's clear the batting standard in the NCL is improving, it's still got a way to go but it's starting to show that the batsmen as an overall are improving and we can start to trust NCL stats a little more.

bowling wise it's a lot more difficult. there are a lot of bowlers in the NCL with great stats, but not many of them make good international bowlers, especially the pacers.

After the heartbreak in the first test, I have no expectation from this team. Clearly, Junaid and Shahriar has no business in being in the team. If the selectors use their brain and not their gut, they will kick out the deadweight named Shahadat from the team permanently. Nazmul is the ideal replacement for him, but we all know that he will not make it. If one player is responsible for the debacle, it is Junaid. If he does not drop those catches in the second inning, our target would have been less than 150. I was in favor of giving him another chance, but that was before these drops. He has to go.

Here is my team:

Tamim Iqbal
Naeem Islam
Anamul Haque
Shakib Al Hasan
Mushfiqur Rahim
Nasir Hossain
Mahmudullah
Sohag Gazi
Elias Sunny
Nazmul Hossain
Rubel Hossain
