This is gonna be a tough test. Bangladesh still does not have a bowling attack than can take 20 wickets and does not have a batting attack that promises consistency. If the surface does not offer any turn at all, than we will be depending on our batsmen to draw the test. The Zim squad just came from playing the West Indian seam attack. They will have no problem playing our weak pace attack what so ever. On the other hand we have Jarvis and Vitori to handle.

Agreed. Riyad had one bad series. But Mominul on the other hand just had a great series that too against SL in SL. Don't worry, Riyad is playing because he is our VC.

Experience is needed for tests, and I totally agree with you. But experience without performance can not be productive. SRK is a great example.

I would play Mominul at any cost. I wouldn't mind benching SN for that and have Ash open like many have suggested.

I've never seen him bowl so I can't really speak for his bowling but Mahmudullah should definitely not be replaced with Mominul because of one below-par series. Even if Mahmudullah fails with the bat, he can still be a very useful bowler and pick up wickets. He should NOT be replaced with a rookie based on 1 series.

Excerpt from CI article by Moonda (http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/content/current/story/630409.html)

Bangladesh talk in an eerily similar way to the way South Africa do although they are at the opposite end of the Test rankings. Mushfiqur used the word "processes," in the same context Gary Kirsten does when he explains South Africa's approach. "We are thinking of the processes and the basics and we want to improve each series."

He hinted that the team was learning to deal with the expectations of their public because they are a "bit more professional," and promised would use this tour as an "opportunity to change the statistics."

BD and SA..interesting comparison.

But Taylor conceded the advantage when he admitted Bangladesh had taken further strides than Zimbabwe over the last 20 months because of their depth.

"Being part of the BPL and seeing the development and the number of young players coming through and the talent they have, I know Bangladesh have got a good, balanced side," he said. "We'll have to be on top of our game if we are going to beat Bangladesh." Maybe that realisation caused him to frown and his opposite number to grin.

I always liked B. Taylor. He is a good player and always seems very humble. Last tour, he brushed off Tamim-Vitori incident very professionally in press conf.

While SJ says

"I have tried to find a way that works with the players and give them freedom. At the same time we want to have a disciplined environment, and we want to have fun. We just have a team focus and ensure that everyone steps up for the team."
Bangladesh's coach, Shane Jurgensen, on team ethic

affan_ayan
April 16, 2013, 03:09 PM
Ashraful bats well with Mominul. At 4, Mominul is much better batsman than Mullah. Also, if Ash bats with Shahreer orofe Mr. Kodal and then Mullah, his brain may freeze again.

Test should be the place of specialist. You have to be in top 6 batsman or top 4 bowler. Otherwise, if you take bits-of-pieces players who doesn't fall into either in pure batsman and pure bowler category, he should be dropped.

Who is our top test batsman:
1. Nasir
2. Tamim (Considering he faces new ball, his worth may be even higher)
3. Ashraful (He is definitely, in top two as a class, but considering his perenial brain freeze, he could some places down too)
4. Shakib
5. Mushfiq (His current form may put him couple of places higher)
6. Mominul (he could be some places up based on what I have seen in SL and the position 4 he bats, but considering one series rookie, I want to put him 6)
7. Zahurul (Considering he bats up the order with new ball, I keep him ahead of Mullah)
8. Mullah
9. S. Nafees

Now, you should know who to pick. I can clearly see either S. Nafees or Mullah drops.
SHakib is not a real batsman to picked up the slot 4 in test yet, he suits better at 5 or 6. Mushfiq is not the solution either considering his tiredness with gloves. Mullah will be vulnerable too at 4 with moving ball. So, either Nasir or Mominul --

Welcome! I hope to hell Bangladesh (yes, that's the appropriate name in lieu of slang) plays to entertain and not to win. Ashraful's 190 sure was massive but he was trolling with block and NO ONE would actually watch it end-to-end since it's so boring. *yawn*

Mominul over SN anyday of the week. Just because SN has a good record against Zim doesn't account for anything. Mominul had a good series against SL at their home ground so i have no doubts that he will be able to do EVEN BETTER against Zim in their home ground. Why would you exclude a talented, up and comer batsmen for an used by date, old batsmen who has failed time and time again?

Mominul to #3, SN to drop out for good and keep Riyad in the team for his bowling. We need Riyad for his versatility and put him low down the order as he is low in confidence.

In terms of spin options i think we need Riyad in the team. Shakib wont be bowling so its best to leave Riyad in the team. People are saying Mominul can bowl but Riyad is a more established spinner so its best to leave him in there. His batting should get better.

1. Jahurul Islam
2. Moey Dont Worry Ashraful
3. Mominul Haque
4. Shakib Al Hasan
5. Mushfiqur Rahim
6. Nasir Hossain
7. Mahmudullah
8. Sohag Gazi
9. Enamul Haque
10. Robiul Islam
11. Rubel Hossain

Bangladesh are trying to move forward without the deadweights in Shahriar and co. We are taking a step back if we pick them again.

One thing I don't understand, what's the logic behind putting an all rounder like Shakib in there only for his batting? You need to work pretty much the same muscles for bowling and batting. Can't he potentially stress or re-injure himself by batting? Is he being rushed in too soon?

Or is it more a fitness issue? But then again you also need quite a bit of fitness for batting as well. Or does he not want to field, and will be replaced with substitute fielder. I don't know. Something's off about this.

I guess we can persist with Ashraful for the time being. He did score 190 after all. The deadweights Nazim, Rokon, SN and others would never be able to accomplish this in international cricket.

Already feeling the pressure. Success depends on the old school theory, keep wickets in hand. Bat as much as possible. As per PA there might be a flat deck with even bounce waiting for the Tigers. Tigers should pick Gazi & Enamul & yes please no Shahadat. He should only considered as a net bowler to boost the batters confidence.

As Bangladesh starts scoring 400+ more often, the goal should be to bat in a way so that there is simply no need to bat again. I am not just speaking runs but also the duration. Bangladesh is in a position to think about scoring over 500 against Zimbabwe on a batting track. No i am not saying this will be easy but thats what the goal should be. On a batting track, 300s will keep you in the game, 400s will give u the edge and 500 will take you to a commanding position.

Batting First:

Anything less than 450 batting first on a flat track against potentially the weakest test side in Modern day test cricket is nothing but disappointing. I was going to say 500 but took off 50 runs to account for the usual mistakes Bangladeshi batsmen makes.


Bowling first:

Try to restrict them below 300, if not 350.

Underestimating an opponent, ANY opponent is douchery at its best, especially coming from us. Test cricket is about taking 20 wickets and I hope and pray our spinners can deliver. That being said, they're an improving side not easy to put away in their own country. They bat well enough, and have better seamers and fielders than we do. If their batters demonstrate better ability to play spin during this tour, we'd be looking at VERY close contests. Let us not kid ourselves.

Hello and welcome to ESPNcricinfo's live coverage of this Test between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. We are in the middle of an IPL season, and it's a touch refreshing to see cricketers in white kits again playing the five-day format. These are the two bottom-ranked teams in Test cricket, but have their own points to prove. Bangladesh have been part of the Test family since 2000, but have been criticised for their lack of progress, though their performances in ODIs have been significantly better. Do remember, they were beaten by Zimbabwe not so long ago when the Zimbabweans returned from a period of self-imposed isolation from Tests. Bangladesh may start favourites, given they play more Tests and did well against Sri Lanka recently. But don't rule out Zimbabwe's chances. Here's our preview (http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/content/current/story/630216.html) to the match. And this (http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/content/current/series/623566.html) is your link to all the news around this series.

That's how it goes with the settled teams.

Our middle order is settled. He came in for Shakib and Shakib is fit now.
Ryiad has to perform in this test if he wants be in the line up.

Zim got a very big score in the first innings last time. I think they got around 100 in the first wkt partnership .We cant let them do the same this time ! Need to get some early wickets

Riyad had one bad tour. He did good in the WI series. If he doesn't perform with the bat in the this game then we might see Mominul taking his place in the 2nd Test.

Riyad bowled well in the SL tour.

Bowling First looks to be a bad decision, even if we manage to win. We needed to give our spinners a chance bowling last.

wow you leave out one of the more promising batsman BD have seen and you replace him with an absolute garbage player like nafees who is basically an equivalent of shahadat hossain in the batting department . Way to go BD

In a good side, there's cut-throat competition. Mominul isn't an opener. SN is the backup opener given Anamul didn't make the trip (exams). Why all the angst? Mominul is young and he'll stay hungry.

Guys Mominul is a middle order bat who was competing with Shakib and Riyad. Nafees has been picked to open. Mominul is unlucky because of Riyad's seniority and VC position.

We know that the starting XI is determined by the Captain and the Captain alone. Secondly, cannot replace an opener with a middle order batsman. Cricket in real life ain't EA cricket.

Ashraful cudve opened with Jaharul and mominul coudve been slotted in easily. You play your BEST 11 always, Nafees is not part of the best 11. And look he's already helping out with dropping catches, great job nafees!
