We've had a good look at some of the guys...which 15 would you pick. Here's my squad...

1) Jaharul
2) Shahriar
3) Ashraful
4) Mominul
5) Shakib
6) Mushfiq
7) Nasir
8) Gazi
9) Enamul Jr
10) Rubel
11) Robiul

x) Naeem Islam
X) Abul
X) Riyad
x) Marshall

It would be great if Taskin and Anamul could be ready for this series. Openers are a weak link with Tamim out. Mominul looks better than Naeem, although Naeem can play longer innings. I think we should play 3 spinners regardless of how seam friendly Harare might be because a) its our strength and our pacers wouldn't take advantage anyway and b) ZIM simply cannot play spin at all.

Same team for test. Although I would like to pick a back up opener coz one of SN or Zahirul bound to fail. Shamsur would be my choice..

fine with jahurul, no SN though. mominul will learn to play longer innings the more he plays, before the recent domestic season he struggled with that but did a lot better this season so i expect he'll do that the more he plays in internationals. for pacers i'd like to see sajidul, kazi kamrul, kamrul rabbi or babu in the squad. no shahadat, no abul.

1. Jahurul Islam
2. M. Ashraful
3. Mominul Haque
4. Naeem Islam/Mahmudullah
5. Shakib Al Hasan
6. Nasir Hossain
7. Mushfiqur Rahim
8. Sohag Gazi
9. Enamul Haque jnr
10. Robiul Islam
11. Rubel Hossain/Abul Hasan

Mominul should be trialled at #3. Would rather want him tried at #3 over the likes of JS, SN and the other dropkicks. And besides he has batted at #3 on a number of occasions in tour matches.

Is Nazmul going to be fit? If so, he's the only pacer that plays in my X. Yes, I'll play with ten men, because whoever gets picked for the eleventh spot will cause more damage than it's worth.

Jahirul (20 off 500, then retire)
SN
Ash
Mominul
Shakib
Mushfiq
Nasir
Shohag
Enamul Jr
Nazmul

If Nazmul gets injured, play with nine men (pick a couple of tokais to make up the numbers). Please no Abul/Robiul/SRK/Rubel, the quality on offer from these four supersedes anything else the world has to offer, giving us an unfair advantage. Zimbabwe wouldn't be able to handle the beastly 130 kph pace.

Shakib in and Mullah out...should be the team.

Wo was that guy with a little beard...replacement fielder... Ayub khan? The bugger has no sense, how to throw...why can't we have someone who is good in the field as a replacement fielder? Team management just doesn't put any thought into 12th man....he also could be useful, atleast he shouldn't damage.

Shillingford and Marlon Samuels harassed Zimbabwe with their off spin. Shillingford picked up 19 in the 2 test matches and Samuels 10.

Of course the wickets there aided spinners, the same cant be said about the wickets in Zimbabwe. But without any doubt their confidence will be low against spin. Also must be said their batsmen showed very poor technique, footwork.

If Shakib plays then we will have 3 spinners in him, Gazi and Enamul. But what if Shakib isnt fit? Important we bring in a third spinner. Sunny was absolutely out of sorts so shouldnt be an option. Do the Bangladeshi selectors have the guts to call up Mosharraf? Or will they think the traditional way and pack the squad with useless seamers? Even if they pick up Mosharraf i guess we will play 2 pacers and 2 spinners as we will want 6 batsmen+ Mushfiq. But with Shakib the option for spin bowling increases

if nayeem is fit, will he play in the XI?? #3 position will definitely go to sir ash considering his SL test series performance.

March 30, 2013, 06:02 AM
Until the useless pacers get their basics right, I see no reason to include any pacers or max one pacer in the lineup. Paces can't bat, they can't bowl, they can't even field. Why waste 2 spots for them let alone 3! When was the last time pacers won us anything?

reyme
March 30, 2013, 06:04 AM
And I am still looking for an answer why we had 3 pacers and just one spinner on the 2nd test.

I'm concerned about that too. But who else can open? Shamsur? I dont wanna see SN. Id rather give someone else a chance to show their worth.

i think the best choice would be to give a chance to samsur. ash should bat in #3 in test. we can prepare anamul as opener for test.

We're lucky to have an off spinner of some quality in Gazi given how Shillingford and Samuels basically went postal. I hope that Nasir gets to turn his arm over some in that light, and also to ease Shakib's (and Gazi's) burden. He can be a quality spinner. We don't need more than 2 pacers, and I'd go with Nazmul and Robiul.

^ I wonder how long it takes him to get ready for a match and if he takes help from anyone to paint his body. Its a bloody good effort doing this for every single match. And it requires a hell lot of energy to shout all day long the way he does.

Don't know how the injury of the players, just selecting 15 members without injury

Zahurul, Anamul, Nafees, Ashraful, Naeem, Mominul, Mushy, Sakib, Nasir, Sohag, Raz, Mullah,Rubel, Safiul, Enamul Jr.

I think spin is our main strength, so we should go with more spinners. If the selector can exclude Raz or Mullah they can include another of our crap pacers.

If Tamim is fit, I think Anamul should be excluded and include Tamim in his place for test and for ODI exclude Zahurul include Anamul. For # 3 position there are 3 people, ASH, Nasfees and Naeem, good for the team. My XI will be for the test :

1. Zahurul
2. Nafees / TI
3. Ash / Naeem
4. Nasir (yes I want to see him batting top of the order, give him some chance to make century with a top order as batting partner at the other end. He is in good form now, lets give him more chance to play)
5. Sakib
6. Mushy
7. Mullah (if he deserve a place or Mominul)
8. Sohag
9. Safiul
10. Enam (if he fail then plz play raz)
11. Rubel

:flag::up: Good luck bangladesh Cricket team in ZIm cauz Zim will try to beat us in every way and try to prove to the world that they are still better team then us.

I think we should play 3 spinners regardless of how seam friendly Harare might be because a) its our strength and our pacers wouldn't take advantage anyway and b) ZIM simply cannot play spin at all.

This isn't a bad lineup against Zimbabwe sans Tamim and Bijoy but I'll shuffle things around a little. I'll go with 3 primary strike bowlers, all spinners, with Raju as the only seamer and Riyad joining him as secondary bowler. We need 20 wickets and therefore strike, NOT containment bowlers. Shourobh, Nasir and Sir Mohammad Ashraful Matin, KRT can contribute as part time options.

1. Jahurul Islam Omi

ZERO expectation from yet another stop gap measure with limited ability and poor temperament under pressure situations. If he cannot score 50s here against a comparatively weak team, he should be dropped. Maybe he'll be dropped anyway once Tamim and Bijoy return. That being said, he deserves his share of chances because guys like Junaid, Imrul and Mofees sure got theirs.

A couple of 50s (150+ balls each) expected. Extra WK if need be.


2. Shahriar Nafees Abir

Stop gap measure. I hope he gets some of that old minnow bashing form back against his favorite opponent.

A century from 150 balls expected.


3. Sir Mohammad Ashraful Matin, KRT

ZERO expectation but a century off of 200 balls would be nice. Part time slow bowling option.


4. Shakib Al Hasan

One of a kind and needs to bat up the order. Expecting TWO big centuries with 60 to 70% SR generated from strike rotation.

One of THREE primary strike bowlers.


5. Nasir Hossain

One of a kind and needs to bat up the order. At least one century with 60 to 70% SR generated from strike rotation.

Part time slow and medium pace option.


6. Mohammad Mushfiqur Rahim Mit'hu

Continues to be an on again, off again player even after the 200. Six is a good number for him when he's trying to score big after a big score. His big scores are usually followed by diminishing runs until he scores big again.

At least one BIG century with a 50 to 60% SR generated from strike rotation.


7. Mominul Haq Shourobh

Expecting a string of 50s with a 40 to 50% SR.

Part time slow bowling option.


8. Mohammad Mahmudullah Riyad

Not in form with reverse momentum. Good chance for him to score some runs against a relatively weak attack from his favorite number 8 spot. A string of 50s expected especially when under little to no pressure.

Secondary bowler. Expecting him to pick up wickets from one end if pressure is being generated from the other.


9. Abul Hasan Raju

Expecting some solid batting with scores ranging from patient 30s to 50s.

ONLY full time seamer.


10. Shohag Gazi

Expecting quickish 20s to 30s with the bat.

One of THREE primary strike bowlers.


11. Enamul Haq

Patient batting with no expectation to score big.

One of THREE primary strike bowlers.


Bench: Nayeem (top order, secondary bowler), Marshall (middle or lower middle order, secondary bowler), Rubel & Robiul (seamers).

I would choose Rabiul over Abul, If we cant play two pacers out of Rabiul, Rubel and Abul against a team like Zimbo then whats the point playing test match?

They play pace, even our kind of pace, better than spin. We have quality full and part time spinners capable of taking 20 wickets. The point is to win against an otherwise improving opponent with a spin-heavy attack :)

I don't think any of our three specialist pacers would make much of a difference with the ball. I chose Raju for his batting ability. Also, I'm not high on Robiul's chances to improve upon or maintain his recent "performance". Once I set aside all relativity and just look at his bowling, I see the type of rank mediocrity we've seen before. At least both Raju and Rubel have pace. Rubel has also been to generate swing. Their best deliveries would always be more threatening than someone like Robiul's when it comes to proactively taking 20 wickets.

PoorFan
March 31, 2013, 09:14 AM
There is nothing much to talk about our pacers, not even Abul's stunning batting against WI can save his a$$ I think. Rabiul did well in Srilanka test, and deserve to be picked up again, it should be as simple as that in case of our pacers.

But, Robiul has bowled the highest % of wicket taking deliveries in the matches he's played so far. Rubel, Shahadat, and Abul haven't. Robiul had some awesome deliveries that beat the bat and thus didn't get a wicket in the last ZIM series, and one of his SL wickets seemed a peach as well. Abul's pace is meaningless, and Rubel hasn't been able to get reverse swing in a long while.

My first choice seamers would be Robiul and Nazmul.
