I'm really surprised that Ashraful didn't make the preliminary squad. Maybe our selectors are finally learning. Having said that what in the world is Rajib, Abul and Rabiul doing on that list? We only need 4 pacers from that list- Mash, Nazmul as starter and Rubel and Shafi as backup.

What has Mash and Nazmul done to warrant a place?? Specially Nazmul?

Abul is atleast young and got the pace, Rabiul has done well in the first class competetion.... Shahadat is one of the rare pacers from Bangladesh to get a few Fifers in test matches....

i am guessing they will be omitted from the final 15... although i suspect Abul might sneak in ahead of Nazmul

আশরাফুলের পারফরমেন্সে সন্তুষ্ট না আকরাম খান
স্পোর্টস করেসপন্ডেন্ট
বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম
ঢাকা: শ্রীলঙ্কা সফর সামনে রেখে ২৫ জনের প্রাথমিক দল দিয়েছে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)। যেখানে জায়গা হয়নি জাতীয় দলের সাবেক অধিনায়ক মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলের। প্রথম শ্রেণীর ক্রিকেটে ভালো খেলার পুরস্কার হিসেবে মার্শাল আইয়ুবকেও রাখা হয়েছে স্কোয়াডে। প্রধান নির্বাচক আকরাম খান দল নির্বাচনের বিশদ ব্যাখ্যা দিয়েছেন। তা থেকে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ অংশ পাঠকদের জন্য তুলে ধরা হলো।

প্রশ্ন: এটা তো প্রাথমিক দল দিলেন, মূল স্কোয়াড কবে নাগাদ হতে পারে?

আকরাম: ফিটনেস এবং বিসিএলের ফাইনাল আছে, ওটাতে দু’একদিন সময় নেব। তারপর মুল স্কোয়াড দিব। শ্রীলঙ্কায় আগে টেস্ট সিরিজ। সেজন্য টেস্ট স্কোয়াড দিব আগে। পরে যাদের লাগবে সেভাবে পাঠাবো।

প্রশ্ন: কতজনের দল হবে এবং নতুন মুখ থাকতে পারে কী না?

আকরাম: এখনও ওইরকম চিন্তা করিনি। কারণ বাংলাদেশ দল ভালো খেলছে। ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের সাথে ভালো খেলেছে। প্লাস আমার কাছে খুব বেশি বিকল্পও নেই। একমাত্র বাঁহাতি স্পিনারের জায়গায় বিকল্প আছে। বাকি যাদেরকে রেখেছি তারা ভালো খেলছে। বিপিএলে বোলিং দেখলে সেরা ১১ জনের মধ্যে নয় জনই জাতীয় দলের বোলার। এছাড়া শামসুর রহমান এবং আশরাফুল ছাড়া বাকিরা কিন্তু জাতীয় দলেই খেলছে। আমরা পরিবর্তনটা ওইরকম চাচ্ছি না।

প্রশ্ন: মার্শাল আইয়ুবের অন্তর্ভুক্তির বিষয়ে বলবেন?

আকরাম: ও এবার যেভাবে ঘরোয়া (ডমিস্টিক) ক্রিকেট খেলেছে, আমার মনে হয় এটা তার প্রাপ্য। ওকে যদি চিন্তাভাবনা না করি, সেটা ঠিক হবে না। সে পারফর্ম করেছে, এটার জন্য যোগ্য।

প্রশ্ন: আশরাফুলের না থাকা এবং সাব্বির রহমানের অন্তর্ভুক্তির কারণ সম্পর্কে একটু বলবেন?

আকরাম: সাব্বিরকে টি-টোয়েন্টির জন্য একজন গুরুত্বপূর্ণ খেলোয়াড় মনে করি। ও যদি ভালো পারফর্ম করে এবং আমাদের দলে যদি লাগে তাহলে ওকে চিন্তা করতে পারি। এজন্যই তাকে প্রাথমিক দলে রাখা। আর আশরাফুল যে ধরণের ব্যাটসম্যান ওকে আরও অনেক ভালো খেলতে হবে।

প্রশ্ন: বিপিএলের পারফরমেন্স দেখে শাহরিয়ার নাফীসকে নিয়েছেন?

আকরাম: শাহরিয়ার নাফীস টি-টোয়েন্টিতে ভালো খেলেছে। সর্বশেষ ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সিরিজের টেস্ট দলেও ছিল। ও যে জায়গায় খেলছে সেটাও গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। সবকিছু মিলিয়ে তাকে দলে নেওয়া হয়েছে।

প্রশ্ন: এনামুল হক বিজয় এবং মমিনুল হক কী টেস্ট স্কোয়াডে থাকতে পারে?

আকরাম: এটা আমরা এখনও চিন্তাভাবনা করিনি। আমরা করবো। আগেই বললাম আমাদের বিকল্প কম। অনেক বেশি চিন্তাভাবনা করতে পারি না।

প্রশ্ন: সাকিব তো অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাবে চিকিৎসা নিতে। সে কী টেস্ট খেলতে পারবে শ্রীলঙ্কায়?

আকরাম: আমরা এই জন্য ২৫ জনের স্কোয়াড করেছি। ও মনে হয় অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাবে। ওখানে ডাক্তারের রিপোর্টের ওপর নির্ভর করবে। ও যে টাইপের খেলোয়াড় দুই জনের জায়গায় একজন লাগে। সে খুব ভালো বোলার এবং ব্যাটসম্যান। এখন যদি না যায়, সেক্ষেত্রে বিকল্প চিন্তা করতে হবে আমাদের।

Why Sajidul? Just because for his one good game in BPL2?

And did muktar did enough to get a call? And what happens if he fails in SL? Drop him before ZIM series?

We may not like Abul in the 1st place, and why Abul was selected in the 1st palce in last series is a valid question. But once he is there, there is not enough valid reason to drop him and bring someone else who haven't done enough consistently to make a case yet.

Yes bringing unprepared talent is a mistake. But once you bring someone, dropping him next series (with mixed result) is 10 times more damaging for the young player.

Guys hold on! we all know what our pacers can do... and especially on a flat track in srilanka.. i guess the main damage will be done by our spinners, the pacers are just the fillers. so i don't actually care. Rather we should look for the pacers who are economic at best..

আশরাফুল দলে নেই এটা ভাবতেও অবাক লাগছে। আসলে আশরাফুলের ভাগ্যটাই এমন। বিপিএল এ সপ্তম সর্বোচ্চ রান সংগ্রাহক, তারপরেও প্রাথমিক দলেও তার নাম নেই। বিসিবির নির্বাচক কমিটির সিদ্ধান্ত মানতে পারলাম না।

You didn't see enough of Abul in BPL?

So you want to judge a young player in all formats of the games based on t20(BPL2) only ? Its not easy for a young fast bolwer to be successful in t20 specially when he is not accurate.

I would rather judge Abul for ODI based on 50 overs games. As I said, based on my own judgement, I haven't seen him enough in 50 over games to say one way or another. However what I have seen against WI in ODI, I saw some positives and wouldn't mind to see him play more.

About TEST, it was just one game. But in test, it's not easy to be successful for young fats bowler in our pitch anyway.

i congratulate Mr. Mohammad Ashraful for his century. Alhamdulillah, even his harshest critics were happy for him. but let's be honest out of 13 matches, 1 century and one fifty and on the rest of the other matches he flunked. his competitors are way ahead of him. even Shahriar Nafees i would argue had a better BPL2 season than him. Nafees, Naeem and Shamsur Rahman have an edge over Ashraful, and that is consistency.

our top order batting holds the key to success in this test series. they fail, all else does! pacers? even if we go with three pacers i strongly doubt they will give us more than 20 overs a day, but then again those 20 wicket-less overs can also be the difference between innings defeat/draw/victory.

Taskin has done this job for CtgK very handsomly.
He should have been included in 25 man squad.
I don't like omi.....Ash would do much better than him.
Marshal Ayub must be picked in the main squad for test.
Don't want to see Naeem in the ODI / T20 series.

Kopa Shamsu must be picked in the ODI series and Super Sabbir in the T20.

Head selector Akram Khan and one of the other selector Minhazul Abedin Nannu are from Chittagong. They announced the squad a day before the final to get psychological advantage over Ashraful and Gladiators. (Conspiracy theory)

I had a same type of feeling.

Irrelevant, his average is still only marginally better than Enamul's. When in a tie-breaker the more experienced bowler wins out. Plus, Enamul is widely considered to be among the most lethal spinners we have.

I know most people probably dont care about this but I do and want to mention it. Mosharraf Rubel played in the ICL, for me thats betrayal of the national team and country and under no circumstances should players who played in the ICL be allowed to come back in the national team. Even if he performs amazing, I think he cannot come back but thats just my opinion. Any acts of betrayal under whatever circumstance should not be tolerated. That is also why I will never want Raqibul Hasan to come back to national team. If you remember, he decided to "quit" the national team to send the selectors a message as why they werent picking him. I mean who the hell does he think he is? For me, this kind of attitude is similar to ICL case and as a result he should also be forever barred from the national team. ICL situation also applies to Shahriar Nafees.

Luckily we got only two representatives in IPL; the perspective of Illegal leagues getting vague these days. Forget traitorship, getting chance in these leagues is a matter of status. I'm sure if this was SA/SL/WI, Zim tour would’ve postponed opening up for a paisa league window. ICL fiasco result in banning all top players delayed our cricket growth by at least 2 years, which IMO shouldn't ever happened to young cricket nation like us. The copycat BCB's stance to destroy these careers was wrong.

Like I said, this is my personal opinion. Ofcourse getting in these leagues is a status symbol but at the cost of playing for you country? IPL and all other T20 leagues doesnt bar you from playing for your country.

As for me, I wouldn't use the word "traitor" so casually and I will never accuse anyone a "traitor" unless I am 100% sure that he/she indeed harmed or intended to harm the nation.

The fight between IPL and ICL is not our fight to fight, its all about BCCI trying to steal idea form ICL and formed IPL and tired to consolidate their position. BCB shouldn't even play as a pupet role to satisfy BCCI anyway, forget about lifelong punsihment (that they later changed). SL and other cricket control boards acted more reasonably in this issue.

BCB is not the nation, its another independnet board of Bangaldesh sports. And disagreeing and not listening to BCB doesn't make anyone a "traitor". In top of that, BCB pardoned all ICL players, and BCB accpeted raqibul's un-retirement. Even BCB choose Bashar (ICl player) as a selector ( i.e. part of the BCB management). So why picking up only on Mosharaf?

Lot of us thought that mistake was done in both sides (BCB as well as ICL players) in that fiasco.

Its time to move on and choose the best available players whether he is an ex-ICl player or not....and this is for the sake of our country's prestige and for our cricket future in Bangladesh.

February 21, 2013, 10:19 AM
Well said Fazal bhai. BCB are not saints either. Yes the players shouldn't have done what they did but there is a reason why they pulled off what they did. With the Raqibul incident, he wasn't just mad at the selectors, he was mainly mad at the fact that Lotus Kamal crossed his name off after being picked in the England tour. He did the same exact thing with Tamim as well. In the end, Tamim got back in because obviously he's the better player but also because he's the nephew of Akram Khan whose a chief selector. Does Raqibul have that type of connection in the board. Again he shouldn't have done what he did but BCB is clearly at fault as well.

Regarding the ICL issue, I agree with Fazal bhai, the should not have acted like BCCI's puppet. That was not our problem and we should not have just listened to them and hurt our players in the end.

In the end, BCB and the ICL players and Raqibul compromised and they're back aren't they? So when they have forgiven each other, we should as well, for the sake of a better team.

The ICLers are traitors to the team. But even that can be condoned on a case by case basis. They have to put food on the table for their families. HaBa, Freak, Tapash, and several others made teh right move. Aftab, SN were rank traitors to the team. Alok somewhat so depending on if he believed he'd get picked or not.

But they weren't traitors to the nation.

Go_Bangladesh
February 21, 2013, 07:12 PM
Sure, I take back what I said regarding them being traitors against the nation. I have no right to conclude this based on the evidence I have, so thanks for pointing that out.

But in some cases they are traitors against the team. Players like SN, Alok, Aftab and Nazim were prominent or near prominent national team members and they ditched the team. Older players like Rafique, Bashar and Taposh can be excused as they had very little chance of playing for the national team again. But the above mentionned 4 players left to earn more money than play for the national team.

Whatever problem BCCI had with ICL, I dont care. Fairly or unfairly, ICL became a league that you had go against your national team in order to play in and those players who were prominent national team players decided to join ICL. Do you remember the comments made by SN and gang about the BCB to justify their joining in the ICL? They were very negative comments and however corrupt and inept BCB is, it is still out national team's governing body and saying negative things about them is like saying negative things about the team.

For me this is reason enough for them to be not allowed to come back, they can earn a living by playing NCL, DPL and BPL but the national team is much more precious and sacred (thats what I believe atleast) and once you did what they did, you cannot come back. Lastly what are people's comments on Raqibul? can he ever be excused for what he did?

I, as an avid fan of the Bangladesh cricket never forgave them, so I think the BCB should not have forgiven them as that incident showed their lack of commitement to the national team. Certain incidence cannot/should not be forgiven and I think this falls in that category.

To be honest I dont really remember, could you remind me? was it along the lines of he got the other players offer from ICL? I cannot recall. Anyways he didn't go did he? He stayed back to played with the national team.

As a side note, I really need to change my profile, I think this one was made 5/6 years ago. Ashraful is no longer my favorite player. Now I dont want him anywhere near the national team.

I was expressing my personal opinion and defending it, last time I checked we were allowed to do that here.

I dont want them to go into exile but I simply dont want them to play for the national team again given their act against the national team. They can earn a living though other domestic means but national team should be out of bounds for them.

Test:

Tamim - auto choice, if fit
Anamul - ideal for one down, but should open for lack of a better choice
Jahurul - not too many options out there, should be given another go
Naeem - technically sound enough, need him to play sheet anchor
Mushfiq - auto choice
Nasir - auto choice
Mahmudullah - auto choice
Sohag - auto choice
Enamul - done enough in domestics to be considered ahead of Sunny
Rubel - for lack of a better choice
Nazmul - for lack of a better choice

Reserves:

Shamsur - looks technically sound, should be groomed during this tour
Sabbir - only for shorter versions, but should be with the squad for grooming
Abdur Razzak - improved enough to be considered as a back up option for Test team
Robiul - has decent enough FC stats to be considered


ODI:

Tamim - auto choice, if fit
Anamul - auto choice
Jahurul - not too many options out there, should be given another go
Nasir - should be promoted in the batting order, in shorter versions
Mushfiq - auto choice
Mahmudullah - auto choice
Sabbir - need a big hitter in the slot
Sohag - auto choice
Mash - auto choice if fit
Abdur Razzak - auto choice
Rubel - auto choice


T20I:

Tamim - auto choice, if fit
Shamsur - should be given a go
Anamul - auto choice
Nasir - should be promoted in the batting order, in shorter versions
Mushfiq - auto choice
Jahurul - done enough in BPL to stick around
Sabbir - need a big hitter in the slot
Sohag - auto choice
Mash - auto choice if fit
Abdur Razzak - auto choice
Rubel - auto choice
<!-- controls -->
So, only Robiul returns home after the Test series, to be replaced by Mash. Rest of the squad should remain the same, though different playing XIs should be used in different formats (ie Naeem, Enam, Nazmul should stick around as reserves after the Test series).

I for one don't want Momin back in the team for SL tour. Someone tiny like him has to be immaculate with timing, to succeed in international cricket. But right now his timing does not look all that good. His fielding also sucks, which makes his stock lesser for shorter versions.

Sabbir on the other hand is a power hitter in good touch. His fielding and part time bowling raise his stock for shorter versions.

No offence to Mominul lad like. I pretty much agree with your point on Mominul.

Mominul has not impressed me much at all except that I liked that he didnt play a wild swing a gave in to the huge pressurized moment that last odi match of the last odi series against West Indies. He played edgy at times in that innings but most importantly played it with a big heart for tiny young star and built a good, important partneship with Nasir Hossain and in the end Bangladesh won the match and series 3-2.

I agree that Shabbir looks the better prospect. Domestically they both average a 32 so it's not like Mominul was that much more consistent. Looking at the 2, Shabbir looks to be a better timer plus has more power than Mominul. Also he's definitely the better fielder and he bowls legspin which would be handy since we don't have leg spinners in our side. So I think Shabbir has more to offer than Mominul.

my XI + Lineup for first Test from the chosen XV:

1. Tamim Iqbal Khan
2. Enamul Haque Bijoy
3. Naeem Islam
4. Mushfiqur Rahim
5. Nasir Hossain
6. Mahmudullah Riyad
7. Mominul Haque(this is his format, his comfort zone, his chance to shine)
8. Abul Hasan Raju
9. Sohag Gazi
10. Enamul Haque jr.
11. Rubel Hossain

Not expecting any miracle to happen here...but this squad should be able to take the match to at least day four. I reckon Mominul is more of a longer format cowboy. Mominul's batting style suits the longer format better due to his calm presence in the batting wicket and not playing rash shots(Assumption). I think he should stay away from ODI's and T20s until he matures as a player and establishes his reputation as a solid test cricket player first. just my dui poysha.

We should take two front-line spinners and two front-line pacers.


I would Ideally prefer Shakib and Nazmul in the final XI with a slight change in the batting lineup which would leave out Mominul from the final XI.


my XI + Lineup for the 3-day warmup match:

1. Tamim
2. Bijoy
3. Naeem
4. Nafees
5. Nasir
6. Rahim
7. Riyad
8. Mominul
9. Robiul
10. Rubel
11. Abul Hasan


keeping the spinners as a surprise package ;). I expect Enamul jr. and Gazi combo to be quite lethal unless they prepare a completely lifeless flat demon pitch.

Gowza
February 24, 2013, 02:58 AM
my guess is that SN will take a top 3 spot, wouldn't put it past jahurul getting in ahead of anamul either (you never know with the selectors), but my line-up would be:

1 tamim
2 anamul
3 mominul
4 naeem (keep him in the one spot, #4 suits him and we will find out if he can really cut it or not)
5 nasir/mushy
6 nasir/mushy
7 riyad
8 sohag
9 enamul
10 rubel
11 abul

although i reckon jahurul at #2 with bijoy at #3 is worth a think to (at least it would be better than having SN in there again).

Shamsur Rahman is more suited for shorter formats. Selectors didn't select Ayub since he didn't impress in BPL. Sunny is out of form, out of sync. Nafees included for experience and impressed in BPL. Robiul got a five wicket haul recently in BCL.

my XI + Lineup for first Test from the chosen XV:

1. Tamim Iqbal Khan
2. Enamul Haque Bijoy
3. Naeem Islam
4. Mushfiqur Rahim
5. Nasir Hossain
6. Mahmudullah Riyad
7. Mominul Haque(this is his format, his comfort zone, his chance to shine)
8. Abul Hasan Raju
9. Sohag Gazi
10. Enamul Haque jr.
11. Rubel Hossain

Not expecting any miracle to happen here...but this squad should be able to take the match to at least day four. I reckon Mominul is more of a longer format cowboy. Mominul's batting style suits the longer format better due to his calm presence in the batting wicket and not playing rash shots(Assumption). I think he should stay away from ODI's and T20s until he matures as a player and establishes his reputation as a solid test cricket player first. just my dui poysha.

We should take two front-line spinners and two front-line pacers.


I would Ideally prefer Shakib and Nazmul in the final XI with a slight change in the batting lineup which would leave out Mominul from the final XI.


my XI + Lineup for the 3-day warmup match:

1. Tamim
2. Bijoy
3. Naeem
4. Nafees
5. Nasir
6. Rahim
7. Riyad
8. Mominul
9. Robiul
10. Rubel
11. Abul Hasan


keeping the spinners as a surprise package ;). I expect Enamul jr. and Gazi combo to be quite lethal unless they prepare a completely lifeless flat demon pitch.

Ki bhai Shahadat Bond,Robiul Gillespie and. Shariar Nafis Ganguly ki dush korlo?

I would pick them ahead of Bijoy,Rubel and Gazi

Marshall should really have been picked instead of Jahurul.
Not sure what he has done over the last FC season to get picked ahead of Marshall, who seems to be on the prime form of his life and scored 2 double centuries, a rarity in our domestic scene.

Sad day for Marshall.

This selector trio cost us the test series against WI with their dubious selection and now doing real injustice here again.
If you score over 1000 FC runs with 2 double centuries in a season and still dont get selected, I actually dont know when you ever will !

In the case of Mominul, it was his recent ODI experience against West Indies which won him a place for a possible middle-order spot. He pushed aside Marshall Ayub, the season's most prolific batsman in first-class cricket, Akram saying it was a "50-50 call".

"This was a tough selection, because we had to pick two players to replace Shakib," Akram said. "Enamul won the left-arm spinner's position ahead of Mosharraf Hossain and Saqlain Sajib. He is in form and has Test experience. Mominul was also a tough call but we need a left-hander in the middle order, so Marshall Ayub, despite his two double-hundreds, misses out."

Jahurul returns to the squad after playing three Tests in 2010, but he has played ODI cricket recently. Both he and Robiul have been kept as additional options, although the former has a good chance for a place in the top order, said Akram. "He [Jahurul] could be one of the top three with Tamim [Iqbal] and [Shahriar] Nafees.

"Robiul has trained in the National Cricket Academy during the BPL and he has played in the BCL. But we are not sure about Shafiul Islam, and in general we are facing a challenge to form a pace attack," he said.

February 24, 2013, 08:04 AM
marshall should have been there instead of jahurul but it seems they wanted some options to play in the top order so they've picked 4 specialist top order batsmen for those 3 spots. mominul i guess gets in because they're backing him since he was just brought up to the national team, plus FC format is his best. but really marshall should have been in there for jahurul, mominul can bat at #3 if they want another top order option (though i believe they look at mominul as a middle/lower order batsman going by his placement in ODIs). even marshall could have been tried at the #3 spot.

yes! how many BD batsmen score 1000+ FC runs in the season? then how many of those that score the 1000 FC runs actually score even one double ton? then how many of those who score the 1000 runs, and the double ton, then go on to score a 2nd double ton in that season?

doesn't really come by to often, it's not like there aren't debatable spots up for grabs in the squad, even if there aren't free spots in the playing XI. although in this case someone has to play for shakib so there is at least one spot in the playing XI.

This is probably the worst selection panel we've had...cowards. They want to play the safe game by picking the same old losers. They don't have many options. But they could have and should have picked Marshall, and another spinner at the expense of SN and a pacer.

Shahadat better come good this tour, but I highly doubt it. Rubel is out only hope, and he's pretty mediocre. Doesn't even get reverse swing anymore. Hopefully Robiul can threaten, but Abul is a total crap and if he plays I hope he scores a fifty or so.

Hopefully, Taskin will be picked for the ZIM series.

Finally we can field a four pronged pace attack of Shahadat, Abul, Robiul and Rubel like the great West Indies team of the 80s. The Sri Lankan batsmen must be terrifed already. And we also have a secret left handed weapon called mominul. Right Handers are too mainstream

In retrospect, what the selectors are doing are making selection really tough. In the long run its good. It will weed out flash-in-the-panners who lack consistency in favor of hard-working players who might not be eye catching talents. In the short term we will have to deal with guys like Rajib. In the olden days, Ashraful would have had 5 recalls by now, citing lack of in form batsmen, and now he's not even making the preliminary squads. Thats progress of some sort.

That being said, I hope Marshal comes in for SN in the next series, and Taskin for Abul. Hope Shakib returns, and that Jaharul, Robiul, Shahadat make their chances count.

[বাংলা] ‘মার্শালের জায়গা না পাওয়া দুর্ভাগ্যজনক’ (http://bangla.bdnews24.com/cricket/article594843.bdnews)

মৌসুমে দুটি দ্বি-শতকসহ এক হাজারের বেশি রান করার পরও মিডল অর্ডার ব্যাটসম্যান মার্শাল আইয়ুবের টেস্ট দলে জায়গা না পাওয়াকে দুর্ভাগ্যজনক হিসেবে অভিহিত করেছেন প্রধান নির্বাচক আকরাম খান।

মিরপুর শের-ই-বাংলা জাতীয় ক্রিকেট স্টেডিয়ামে সংবাদ সম্মেলনে তিনি বলেন, “দল ঘোষণার আগে মার্শালের সঙ্গে আমি ফোনে কথা বলেছি। কোন পরিস্থিতিতে তকে দলে নেয়া যায় তার ব্যাখ্যাও দিয়েছি। জাতীয় দলের দরজা তার জন্য উন্মুক্ত, তার বাদ পড়াটা খুব দুর্ভাগ্যজনক।”

আইসিসির টেস্ট র‌্যাংকিংয়ের শীর্ষ অলরাউন্ডার সাকিব আল হাসানের অনুপস্থিতিতে দুজন ক্রিকেটারকে দলে নিতে হয়েছে জানিয়ে প্রধান নির্বাচক বলেন, “তিন বছরের বেশি সময় পরে দলে ফিরেছেন এনামুল হক জুনিয়র। তিনি একজন অভিজ্ঞ বোলার এবং দারুণ ছন্দে আছেন। এছাড়া মোশাররফ হোসেন ও সাকলায়েন সজীবও আমাদের বিবেচনায় ছিলেন।”

“মমিনুল হক ও মার্শালের মধ্যে একজনকে বেছে নিতে কোচ ও অধিনায়কের সঙ্গে আমাদের ত্রিশ মিনিটের বেশি সময় ধরে আলোচনা করতে হয়েছে। অ্যাকাডেমির হয়ে মমিনুল অনেক রান করেছেন। ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সফরে রান করেছেন। মিডল অর্ডারে একজন বাঁহাতি ব্যাটসম্যান প্রয়োজন, এটাও বিবেচনায় ছিল,” যোগ করেন তিনি।

চতুর্দশ জাতীয় ক্রিকেট লিগে ১১ ম্যাচে ৬০৪ ও বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট লিগে (বিসিএল-বড় দৈর্ঘ্য) ৫ ম্যাচে ৪৬০ রান করে দুই প্রতিযোগিতারই সেরা রান সংগ্রাহক মার্শাল।

পেসার ফর্ম নিয়ে উদ্বেগ রয়েছে জানিয়ে তিনি বলেন, “চোটের কারণে জাতীয় লিগে সেভাবে পেসাররা খেলেন নি। চোট প্রবণ বলে চার পেসার নিতে হয়েছে, ম্যাচে হয়ত দুজন খেলবেন।”

“রবিউল (ইসলাম) বিপিএলে খেলেনি। অ্যাকাডেমিতে থেকে একমাস ধরে অনুশীলন করেছে। ও বেশ ভালো করেছে বলে কোচ জানিয়েছেন।” রবিউলকে ফেরানোর ব্যাখ্যায় বলেন তিনি।

দলীয় কম্বিনেশনের জন্যই দুজনের বেশি বিশেষজ্ঞ স্পিনার নেয়া যায়নি বলে জানিয়ে আকরাম বলেন, “সীমিত ওভারের সিরিজের দল ঘোষণার জন্য প্রয়োজন হলে প্রাথমিক দলের বাইরে থেকে কাউকে পাঠাতে পারি আমরা।”

সংবাদ সম্মেলনে উপস্থিত ছিলেন দুই নির্বাচক মিনহাজুল আবেদীন নান্নু ও হাবিবুল বাশার সুমন।[/বাংলা]

Tiger444
February 24, 2013, 12:04 PM
Very poor selections on the bowling side. I just don't understand what's the need of taking 4 pacers in SL. Had it been a 3 Test tour, I would've understood but for 2 Tests, 3 would've been enough. I don't get what Elias Sunny did wrong to get dropped while Shahadat, Robiul and Abul got picked? It would've been good to have Elias and Enamul fight for the spinners spot. Also don't get why Nazmul and Shafiul were overlooked. Maybe the selectors are not confident of them bowling long spells? But then why Rubel was picked if that's the case? Elias, Nazmul and Shafiul should've been in ahead of Abul, Shahadat, and Robiul.

As for the batting side, I actually disagree with many here that Marshal should've been selected over Mominul. Lets not forget, NCL and BCL quality is not even close to international quality. The pacers in this league are way below international standard. I value A team stats a lot higher and the stats don't lie, Mominul has been 1 of the most, if not the most consistent batsman in the A team. Marshal in the limited chances he got in the A team, was not anything special. Let him play in the A team tour against England and lets see if he can handle international level attacks.

I think that Jahurul deserves to get in as well because 1) he's consistently been 1 of the best domestic batsmen and 2) he offers versality since he's also a part time keeper and top order batsmen. So if Mushy get injured, we could have Anamul keep and Jahurul bat with Tamim. Or if we want Anamul to stay as a top order bat, Jahurul could keep. Not a bad option to have. A bit surprised to see Shamsur missing out. SN has been pretty ordinary for a while now. We could've given Shamsur a run and see what he has to offer. Shamsur can't be too disappointed though because he could've easily impressed the selectors here by scoring big in this final match and also during the NCL and BCL but failed to do that.

Anyways guys lets not be too disheartened. Selections have been made and we should back all these players and hope for the best. Our batting lineup looks fairly good and our spinners should give a good fight to the Lankan batsmen. Lets hope for the best

Is there any law that you must take 4 pacers? We are far better off playing 4 spinners and will have better chance getting 20 wickets!

February 24, 2013, 12:14 PM
I suspect SJ had lot to say when it comes to pacer selection. Somehow he liked Robiul, somehow he prefer Abul.

I wonder though - who is the one sticking with gazakhor Rajib? Is it selectors or the coach?

Tiger444
February 24, 2013, 12:21 PM
So we'll most likely see this lineup for the 1st Test

1. Tamim
2. Anamul
3. SN
4. Naeem
5. Mushy
6. Nasir
7. Riyad
8. Sohag
9. Enamul
10. Abul
11. Rubel

Again not a bad team here. The pace department is obviously pretty weak. Sohag and Enamul should be more than a handful though. Riyad is also a handy bowler and needs to fill in for Shakibs big shoes. The batting lineup is also pretty strong. All these batsmen can be depended upon to post big scores.

That's the problem with our batsmen. I think you pointed this out before but once they're in the lime light they can't handle the pressure. Instead Rocky completely took over the lime light from them. But once we see Rocky under the lime light, there's a good chance he'll start struggling as well.

The only players that handle the lime light well are Tamim, Shakib, Mushy and Nasir. Riyad has improved on this over the years. Explains why they're our best batsmen

The only players that handle the lime light well are Tamim, Shakib, Mushy and Nasir. Riyad has improved on this over the years. Explains why they're our best batsmen

If Tamim does not play a match winning innings Vs Lankans then he's out of this elite league. That's it.

According to Akram, Tamim-Anamul will open, SN will play one-down, Aumi will be standby for a top order position. All the pacers are selected according to SJ's opinion.

“As of now, Tamim, Bijoy and (Shahriar) Nafees are our top 3, and Jahurul is our stand by. Things will be confirmed after our practice match in Sri Lanka,” the chief selector added.

“We are worried about our pace bowling performance. Our top pacers did not play in the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) and it's not possible to judge them based on the Bangladesh Premier League T20. We had to mostly depend on our coach's opinion.”

With regard to Robiul's recall, Akram said: “Robiul has played well in the BCL and has done alright in National Cricket League. He did not get a team in the BPL. So he was in the academy for a month and according to the coach he has been improving day by day.”

Robiul or any of our pacers are not likely to make huge difference anyways.
Only Shahadat have this ability to bowl a sudden fiery spell where he takes couple of wickets, before going back to his grunting and annoying everyone for the rest of the day.

Then what gets the coaches/selectors pick Robiul ahead of Shafiul and others ?
His ability to run in hard and bowl a long spell, than any of our pacers. He is a very had worker and is known for his stamina and strength, an endurance factor needed for test cricket.
Where as most pacers would bowl max 6-7 overs spell, Robiul can do a good 12 overs on the trot.
That's probably why SJ picked him.

That's probably why SJ picked him.That makes sense. We know Rubel/Shafi don't have endurance to be used as a workhorse. But why not Nazmul then? He bowls at a similar pace as Robiul, and can actually generate lateral movements with swing/cutters.

With Naeem-Mushfiq-Riyad-Nasir, Momin is currently a reserve member of the squad. So, unless he does anything extra-ordinary in the practice match and gets selected ahead of Naeem for #4, he will spend his time carrying water during the Test series.

For the ODIs and T20I, he may come in consideration (in place of Naeem). He does add some value (especially in absence of Shakib) as a second SLA (along Abdur Razzak). He better work hard on his fielding though.

Good point there Rabz bhai. Didn't think about that. I remember Shakib stating that in the Zimbabwe tour.

Also looking at the stats, in the NCL and BCL, Shahadat and Robiul were the the top pacers. I guess that's the problem again isn't it? Our pace resources is weak. Also did Nazmul not bowl in the NCL and BCL? I don't see him anywhere on the wickets charts

someone has to fill shakib's spot, unless they're giving that to a bowler...also the #3 spot isn't locked in, and mominul can bat at #3, though it depends on where they're putting anamul in the line-up.

Momin at #3? May be in ODI.

With Shak, we play only with 3 specialist bowlers. Without him, we definately need 4. So certainly his spot is going to a bowler.

out of 25, they get selected ahead of other inform 10, so i assume they will be in main Xi too, then we have no hope at all. if the selection is like this

main XI might be

anamul
mahmudullah

nasir
mominul
sohag gazi

it shows our selectors have no idea about local cricketer and they know how to destroy fan's hope even before the series starts. i am sure shahadat or abul will get 1 or 2 wkt, but if all 3 plays--some body will eventually get lucky wkt but opposition will make 700 runs in the mean time.

shahadat dont find even league team but he get national call. very strange.

Media Release

Replacement players in Bangladesh Test Squad

Batsman Naeem Islam and left-arm spinner Enamul Haque have been ruled out of the Bangladesh squad due to injury for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka starting next month.

National Team Physio Vibhav Singh said: “Enamul (Haque) complained today morning of left hamstring pain. After assessment it was found he has a grade 1+ hamstring tear. This will see him receiving physiotherapy and rehabilitation for about seven to 10 days.

“Naeem has a grade 2 quadriceps tear of the right leg. He has pain and weakness on testing. He will need to have physiotherapy and rehabilitation for at least two to three weeks.”

The National Selection Panel in consultation with Chairman BCB Cricket Operations Committee Enayet Husain Siraj and Bangladesh Team Head Coach Shane Jurgensen decided to name immediate replacements for the two players. Top-order batter Marshall Ayub will come in for Islam while Haque will be replaced by fellow left-arm slow bowler Md. Elias.

SQUAD

Mushfiqur Rahim (Captain), Mahmud Ullah (Vice Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Shahriar Nafees, Anamul Haque, Marshall Ayub, Nasir Hossain, Shohag Gazi, Abul Hasan, Rubel Hossain, Md. Elias, Jahurul Islam, Muminul Hoque, Shahadat Hossain, Robiul Islam

Or is it Enamul who gets injured very next day of getting picked after years of performance and hard work.

I agree with you. BD seems to always have the surprising factor about them. When we expect them to do well they suck and vice versa. There's no Shak, no Enam, lots of nubees, it could be a total surprise package. When you have nothing to lose, anything's a gain.:flag:

ঢাকা: চোটজনিত কারণে একদিন আগেই দুটো পরিবর্তন এসেছে টেস্ট স্কোয়াডে। বাঁহাতি স্পিনার এনামুল হক জুনিয়র এবং নাঈম ইসলামের জায়গায় নেওয়া হয়েছে ইলিয়াস সানি আর মার্শাল আইয়ুবকে। সেই চোটের জন্য এবার আরও একটা পরিবর্তন আসতে পারে শ্রীলঙ্কা সফরের দলে।

মঙ্গলবার শাহরিয়ার নাফীস বাঁহাতের তালুতে চোট পেয়েছেন। তাঁর হাতে চারটি সেলাইও লেগেছে। ক্ষত শুকাতে ৭ থেকে ১০ দিন সময় লেগে যাবে। খেলার মতো অবস্থা ফিরে পেতে আরও কয়েকটা দিন বিশ্রামে থাকতে হতে পারে। এ অবস্থায় তাঁকে ঢাকায় রেখেই বৃহস্পতিবার কলম্বো যেতে পারে বাংলাদেশ দল।

বিসিবির প্রধান চিকিৎসক দেবাশিস চৌধুরী বাংলানিউজকে বলেন,‘হাতের তালুর চামরা যেহেতু মোটা। শুকাতে একটু বেশি সময় নিবে। সেলাই কাটার পর পরই হয়তো ব্যাট ধরতে পারবে না।’
