Yes, according to Bangladesher Khela Report, (http://www.bangladesherkhela.com/default.asp?strrefer=displayocr&straction=headline&iItemID=7869&iCategoryID=1) Khaled Mahmud and Alok Kapali will be back.

The other man should be Raj, as Enamul Jr. will be in.

4. Rajin Saleh Alam
5. Mohammad Ashraful
6. Manjarul Islam

8. Mohammad Rafique
9. Tapash Baisya
10. Enamul Haque Junior
11. Tareq Aziz

12th Man: Alamgir Kabir (he needs to burn the fat)

3 spinners and two pacemen; however, i must admit that i'm having problems fitting Mushfique into the first eleven.

Because Mahmud has done well with the ball so far I think he should play in the 1st test. I predict Rana and Saleh will fail with the bat in the 3rd ODI, if they do then they should be dropped. My team would be
Sarkar
Omar
Bashar
Ashraful
F. Hossain
Rahman
Mashud
Mahmud/Saleh Saleh if Khaled sent home
Razzak/Hoque havent seen Raj play but if he turns the ball like Hoque then he should be in because he has more to offer with the bat.

1. I would continue with Javed-Hannan as they were successful in Australia and before Javed got injured.

2. You need 2 front line pacers, not what we are using for pace in the ODIs

3. Rana vs Mushfiq will be the choice for all-rounder if you want to include 2 specialist spinners. You can't have Enamul and Rafique and then also have both Rana and Mushfique. Rana should not be opening the test innings, but if he does than you have more options. The pitch should dictate whether we go with pace or spin in the all-rounder slot.

In any case, you can only have 5 specialist batsmen.

So:

Hannan
Javed
Bashar
Rajin
Ashraful
Rana/Mushfiq
Pilot
Rafique
Enamul
Tapash
Aziz

I've been thinking all along that we only have one pacer and Tareq should be there. That's why i believe Mushfiqur should be dropped. However after 144 and 101 in the first one dayers i think it might be neccesary to play 6 specialist batsmen plus Pilot and Rana. However I would like to see rafiq's team

Upal
May 18, 2004, 09:28 PM
this test team will be real hard to pick. I would also like to have 3 spinners in there, but that will make it very hard for us to pick 2 frontline paceman. I don't feel quite comfortable going into a test with Tapash and Mushfique as our only paceman. Rana iz in excellent form, so i don't see how he can be left off. The selectors will have a tough time finding a place for Raj/Enamul.

I have the following observations after our loss in the 2nd ODI:
(1) We lost the match because the West Indies had a better strike rate.
(2) They struck the balls better because they are, in general, more skilled in batting.
(3) To beat a team with better batting skills our top order has to assume some responsibilities. Remember in 1999 Biddut and Mehrab were 69/0. In the win with Zimbabwe Bashar scored a half century.
(4) The five batsmen in the top order (Hannan, Ash, Bashar, Rajin, and Alok) has to produce something collectively and if one scores a duck, the remaining members have to make it up.
(5) We may have to ask each of our top order batsmen not to touch the ball unless it is on the stamps. We should, perhaps, insist that they allow the first bowler they face have a maiden over.

I am praying that we would put up a good fight in the 3rd ODI and force a deserving, not rain-affected, draw in one of the two tests.
I want Alok to be replaced by Faisal in the 3rd ODI

rafiq
May 18, 2004, 11:11 PM
Habibul-fan,

Bangladesh's lineup problems would be solved if they were allowed to play with 12 men.:)

Only 2 can play from Rana/Mushfiq/Enamul. The 6th batsman hasn't mattered much in all our previous test losses, and the allrounder and Pilot do get some runs. So I think if the wicket allows it, and WI is susceptible to spin, and you are flying Enamul out there, and you can't drop Rafique, then you might as well go with Rafique-Enamul and create some real pressure. With Aziz coming in, Mushfique is dispensable from the test side. But without the specialist #6 batsman, the choice of Mushfiq vs Rana will be based on their batting since we will have 4 front line bowlers.

5 batsmen-1 allrounder-1 WK-4 bowlers. That's like the 4-4-2 in soccer. Bangladesh have NEVER used it. Why not give it a try?

its the spinners that can be our key!

# Faisal looked promising

# Rana is superb

# Enamul is very tallented... I wonder who is more effective, Rana or Enamul ??

# Tareq Aziz deserves to play in one match also...


So lets play Tareq in one test and Enamul in other..
but before that..we can try both of them in the 3 day practice match giving some rest to Tapash/Rafiq ..

rafiq
May 20, 2004, 04:10 PM
Our test team is infinitely better than the ODI team mereley by the absence of Khaled Mahmud Sujon. It doesn't matter who is in the 11, it will be a more balanced side and the performance has to be better.

reyme
May 20, 2004, 07:02 PM
I highly doubt Javed's capability, he was a total flop in the corporate cricket league. He has been out of form for sometime. He should only play if he can show something in the practice match.

1. Hannan (shows form off and on)
2. Ashraful (Dave thinks of him as opener now, prothojm alo)
3. Rajin (hard nosed player)
4. Bashar (he is the best batsman)
5. Faisal (see him shine)
6. Rana (he can do it)
7. Mashud ( Mr. dependable)
8. Rafiq
9. Tapash
10. Tareq
11. Enamul

With 7 batsman and 4 solid bowlers we should do well.

:karate:

rafiq
May 20, 2004, 11:27 PM
Reyme you are quite right to include Rana and Pilot in your tally of 7 batsman. That is what they are after all. Rana is in good form and Pilot has always been Mr. Dependable. Yet we never quite consider him a specialist batsman and think "playing with 5" is a weak strategy. If Pilot came in at 3 or 4 he would probably score 50s and 100s all the time. It's not his fault he has to bat below the likes of Mushfiq and Sujon.

Anyway, like your lineup although I hope Javed Omar is not washed out. The CCL doesn't mean much.

Rubu
May 20, 2004, 11:35 PM
there is one thing we need to consider before bringin pilot up in batting order. he is not that good in new ball. he was tryed as opener and did not quite worked it. if the players before him can spend some time, then pushing pilot up may work, but when the cherry is still ripe, pilot is not the person to eat it.

rafiq
May 20, 2004, 11:54 PM
I'm just talking about recognizing him as a proper batsman at 6 or 7, i don't mean for him to move to 1 or 3.

Ahmed_B
May 21, 2004, 01:46 AM
CCL was completely a 'One day tournament' and its not really agreeable to judge J.Omar's performance there about how he is going to do in International Test Cricket!
by far he has been one of the most dependables in BD test squad..
To eveyone who are trying to figure out a team for the the TEST, I would also notify the following targets that we gotta reach :

#Playing all 5 days with comfort and not shakily!
# atleast 400+ in our 1st innings and not getting all out in 2nd innings
# not batsmen with higher strikerates(bit low strikerate is absolutely no problem in test), rather atleast one of them scoring 150+, another around 100 and atleast 3 batsmen scoring 50+ (in each innings)
# batting longer innings and not giving away wickets in a row...

lets pick players on those criteria. :)

We do not have a substitute for Pilot, or even a distant one - he performed gracefully. Javed Omer and Hannan Sarker should open for us. Special request to our Captain Bashar: Please do not pull any short balls or hit anything outside off stamp for the first few overs; othewise you are a great cricketer. Faisal sees the ball good; he should be given a chance and be advised to use some restraints because it is not a ODI. Include either Ashraful or Alok, not both. Khaled Mahmud does not suit well in a test scenario. Razzak Raj can be given a chance if he performs in the practice match well. Rafique is our spinning anchor because of his notable low bowling average. In a test a bowler needs to bring a balance between runs given away and wickets taken - Rafiq has a proven track record. We do not have a substitute for Tapash. Tarek Aziz can be brought in at the expense of either Mushfiq or Faisal. If we want to have Alok rest and regroup, then both Musfiq and Faisal can be included. We have not had a proven leg spinner either in Alok or Ashraful, but Rajin is a part-time leggie.

With that, here is my team:

Javed Omar
Hannan Sarkar
Rajin Saleh
Habibul Bashar
Faisal Hossain
Mushfiqur Babu
Khaled Masud
Monjurul Rana
Mohammed Rafiq
Tapash Baishya
Tareq Aziz

If we can pull a draw in the first test, I would bring Alok and Ashraful back. Note that they are the players in the making and are likely to mature over the time.

mahbubH
May 21, 2004, 10:15 AM
The selection of the test squad is pretty tricky right now. It depends on which way Whatmore will go. First concern how many spinners in the team? Two or three, if 2 then probably Rafique and Rana will get the selection and Enamul has to wait! With Enamul as the 12th man team would be:

Hannan, Javed, Basher, Rajin, Ashraful, Faisal, Mushfiq, Rana, Masud, Rafique, Taposh.

This team's bowling is pretty weak: 1.5 pacers and 2 spinners. Replacing Mushfiq with Tareq shows better bowling side but don't think Whatmore will do this because Mushfiw will give at least 20 runs. I just don't want to see the team without Faisal because he is matured and should get a chance after what he shows last two years in the national league.

I know West Indians are weak in spin bowl but we need to play three pacers. It's a longer version cricket match. We need to depend not only on our spinners but also on our pacers. We need to play our two pacers which will be Tapash and Tareq. Mushfique will be played as an all rounder.

Some time lollipop is good enough for your sisi Lara. Anyway, our spin may not be as good as India or Lanka, but good enough for rest of the Test nations. If Rafiq is good and the other new-comer are close to rafiq then it is good enough for the WI tour.

This morning I was litsening the running comentry from Greneda; and Enam Jr. is turning the ball enough with some variations. Too much turning is not good, cuz then the ball becomes predictable. Little bit of unpredictable turn with variations of delivery becomes deadly. Then you have the batsman constantly guessing.

Now, for the test team, Kapali is having one last chance. See if he is in-form for the Test.

Probales are:
1.Hannan
2.Gullu
3.Bashar
4.Ashraful
5.R. Saleh

if kapali can't perform in this 3day match, he should not be in the test series. and, he should not be included in the team unless he perform in domestic league and can prove that he deserve to be in the team. we should always make a difference between performers and talented non performers, and should always go for the performers.

Hannan
Ash

Rana
Rajin
masud
Misfique
Raf
Tareq
Tapash

options with 11

Fassial/enamul/javed

reason for the option

1.with musfique added we have 3 pacers
and 2 spinners.

Out of the 3 pacers 1 can bat
out of the 2 spinners 2 can bat

so we have batsmen till the 8th number (with ten players)

so talking in a third spinner or a 9th batsmen can be an option Dav will Know better.

If I were Dav (iam not!) i would give this Fasial guy a chance considering the options.

rafiq
May 24, 2004, 12:54 AM
Seeing how brittle our batting is, I have changed our mind and think we should go with 6 specialist batsmen after all. That leaves room for 4 bowlers, so 2 spinners and 2 pacers would seem most balanced. Normally I would have picked Javed/Hannan to open. But a third spinner can add a lot of weapons to the team.. so maybe we should open with Rana?

Hannan
Javed or Rana
Bashar
Rajin
Ashraful
Faisal (could move up the order to 3 before the very fragile Bashar-Rajin duo)
Pilot
Enamul
Rafique
Tapash
Tareq

If we were taking Rana I may opt for Mushfiq instead of tareq for added batting depth, otherwise we can do without Mushfique.

Whatever the team is, taking 3 pacers is conventional wisdom but I hope we don't do it.

Rubu
May 24, 2004, 01:21 AM
normally, i'd not even think of opening test with rana, we need speciallist batsman. but JO did not show any sign of performance to justify his inclusion, but neither did rajin or hannan. so, i'd still like to go with hannan and javed.
i did posted team before, but looking at the practice match, i'll go with this:
1. J Omar
2. H Sarkar
3. H Bashar
4. R Saleh
5. M Asharaful
6. F Hossain
7. M Rana
8. M Babu
9. K Masud
10. M Rafique
11. T Baisha

Our bowling can go with Taposh, rafique, mushfique and rana, and even rajin if needed, but we need strong batting line up since its the batting thats always causes trouble. in my squad, even the 11th player has the ability to stay on the wicket and up until 10 are all been prove to be batsmen in somewhere or somewhere else.

If you think that, you obviously have never seen an actual West Indian pace attack. None of them are fit to clean the boots of, say, Curtly Ambrose, let alone one of the great West Indies quicks.

None of those men would make 12th man in the Australian side (and me, I'd pick a fit Mustafa Moshrafe over any of them).

And in Cairns, Bangladesh went *this* close to 300 in a day against the first string Australian bowling attack of McGrath, Gillespie and Lee.

Lessee, how did the Windies go against that attack when batting first ... out for 237 in Georgetown.

If the Banglos bat first, it's going to come down to the first session. If they can survive that, that bowling attack can be taken apart by batsmen of the class of Bashar and Sarker.

Then we see how good the heart of the West Indies side is.

Wait, we know that already ...

May 24, 2004, 06:10 PM
Agree with IanW. This pace attck is nothing special. But considering the frailty of our top order, any pace attack is fearsome. Unfortunate thing is that Lawson won't be reported when he plays Bangladesh; But his action will be questioned by all other teams teams. That's why they did not play him against England.

3)Habibul Bashar(O he is our Captain)
4)Faisal Hossain(Must playing; Lefty, play pace well)
5)Razin Saleh(I hope he will do better)
6)Ashraful(In better touch; Good possition for him)
7)Manjarul Islam Rana(He is informed BD player I ever seen; Bowling & Batting)
8)Khaled Mashud Pilot(We don't have any other way; also he a good batsman)
9)Mohammad Rafique(He is the best test bowler for Bangladesh)
10)Mushfiq-Ur-Rahman///Enamul Huq Jr. It's depend on the pitch(I prefered Mushfiq for some large batting line and also we need 2 pace bowler in our bowling lineup)
11)Taposh Baishwa(Informed pace bowler)

Agree with IanW. This pace attck is nothing special. But considering the frailty of our top order, any pace attack is fearsome. Unfortunate thing is that Lawson won't be reported when he plays Bangladesh; But his action will be questioned by all other teams teams. That's why they did not play him against England.

Very good points Optimist!!

So far I know, his one year suspension expired after WI vs. ENG series. Otherwise he might play that series.

This is, to my knowledge, the first series for him after his suspension has been over.

Was he suspended? Is not like that "if he is reported within one year of the first reporting he will be suspend" or similar to that. Did not read something like Lawson was suspened for a year or so. I know he was injured for a while and working on his bowling !

Sorry! He was not suspended. He was reported by unpires David Shepherd and Venkat last year in May. And after that in Stage 1, biomechanics specialist report went against him. To avoid being reported again WI did not include himin any national squad for 1 year, and went on remedial efforts. He was tested in a practice match against England in last March to see the progress. WICB considered it to be good, but still did not risk to have him reported again and waited till the one year period expires.

This is the story.

Chronological reports are available in his player profile (http://www.cricinfo.com/db/PLAYERS/WI/L/LAWSON_JJC_04010227/) (scroll down to see the headlines).

Sorry, I could not also manage time to read now, but I the above is what I can remember. There was no factor of injury.

Was he reported after the Bangladesh match? NOOOOOOOOO. He was reported immediately after his heroics against Australia. That's what my point was.

This is my Team:
1)Hannan Sarkar(BD best test openar)
2)Javed Omar(He can servibe long time in the creez; forget about Practice match)
*******************

I like this team, but Javed is a mistake. Can Javed make me wrong? I think both Babu and Enamul can be included, but not Javed. He cant play the bouncer well, and likely get out giving catch behind the stapms. Watch him struggle....
