Anamul is really working hard..and good thing is he increased his strike rate. Hopefully he comes good specially when flopmaster somuya is sliding sharply.

Unlike Soumya and Sabbir, Anamul is a hard worker. Domestic performance is a proof.

Soumya looked good for a while because he was in purple patch after which his performance got worse and worse.

However Anamul can't be Tamim's partner. Both are slow. Need to try out Liton at opening and Anamul 1 down

Tamim sometimes needs to slow down to provide balance, play sheet anchor role. Maybe he will play a more expansive game, if someone else can hold fort.

Worthwhile trying out Anamul.

I am scared that Anamul will score another low strike rate 50s and carry on being passenger forever.. :(

I'd go with liton to partner tamim, shanto for number 3. Anamul might've scored more runs than shanto in the lastest DPL but shanto played 6 less innings and anamul only scored 65 more runs. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in your number 3, they both had similar strike rates, anamul got 5 half centuries providing more steady starts but shanto scored two tons as well as a half century so he went on more. Shanto is more specialised in the number 3 spot whereas anamul is more experienced as an opener. Anamul relied much more on boundaries than shanto, 54% of anamul's runs came in boundaries whilst for shanto it was 40%.

Shanto is definitely a long term prospect. And very much an important one at that. I hope he spends a bit of time in HP before a move to the NT.

I heard Simon Helmot has started his tenure. Jayawardene also likely to join as batting consultant. Maximum training must be provided to these players before pushing them into the NT.

Well it depends on whether shanto is part of the plans for the next WC or for after it, if he is part of those plans he needs to be in the team asap to get enough experience and to sort out the early issues that there could be with plenty of time before the World Cup rolls around, if not then leave him out of the side until after he next World Cup.

And if the plan is to leave him out then I'd suggest to keep Soumya as opener and bring liton into the number 3 spot.

I'm a firm believer of NT to be an open door for natural talents. WC is still 2 years to take place and we cannot just limit ourselves with the 15-16 players we have.

The seniors (Tamim, Mushy, Shakib, Mullah, Mash) need to stay. Fizz, Taskin & Miraz should stay with the team as well. 2 years is a long time for Rubel, if he stays fit and can bowl same; he can stay too.

But the rest cannot be permanent until they start performing regularly. Specially, Sabbir, SS and Mosa. We definitely need to try other options. At the same time, we should also try out other bowlers and hunt for speed demons/ swing masters.

All in all, we should build a fixed team within next 6 - 12 months.

well we need a proper number three, shanto, Liton, anamul are the top prospects.

He has definitely worked on his strike rate,which is good. With no one particularly settling in as Tamim's partner at the top, he is definitely one of the contenders.

Anamul at 3 is probably what we need. A more steadier player who will look to play a long innings. Liton can be more free flowing batsman as an opener with the fieldsman inside the circle. Shanto is our long term prospect but for now gotta take a batsman who already has international experience.

To me soumya and sabbir at the top doesnt seem right because both dont look like the type to knuckle down and work hard on sharpening their batting. CT was a proof of that. Natural talent alone wont get you far (unless if you are Shakib lol).

Gowza

I think in shorter formats sabbir could move back down the order, soumya could be tested down the order but he hasn't been that bad up top, still averaging mid 30s.

In longer formats sabbir def shouldn't bat higher than 4, should prob be down at 5/6 for now.

Even the average joe should be optimistic after watching Sabbir and Soumya recently

Unlike those two Shakib is a man of grit plays according to the situation and his limitations.

There is no excuse for a no.3 batsman to be so limited that he needs to charge the bowlers every other ball

I would keep wc15 order.
Sarker at 3 and shabbir at 7.

Natural talent like Fakhar won PAK the CT.
Tested veterans like Dhawan & Rohit couldn't do it for IND.

Doesn't mean that I'm hugely biased to any of the above. However, if I see a good talent who hasn't been exposed yet, I would rather give a shot if the situation demands. For example, if SS or Tamim seems out-of-form 2 months prior to WC'19 and I know an opener extremely talented, I would pick him in the squad. Kinda like what PAK always does (eg. 1992 WC). IND will never do it.

I can see someone like Anamul down the lower order in ODIs unless he has improved on his technique, and running between the wickets. I actually prefer to see Anamul in the test side, and bat at number 3, so Mominul can bat at his more preferred position at four. I would like to see Liton part of the side in the main forms now: he looks too good for domestic Cricket now. On a serious note, we need to set-up these A tours, so these players can sharpen-up their skills to the max...

At least fakhar is proven in domestics tho

Lol can you name few in no 3 plz

Gowza

I wouldn't say too many better players than him but there are some that are vying for the number 3 spot whether we like it or agree with it or not. Liton, mominul, shanto, sabbir and i'd even put soumya in there.

At current I'd say there are 3 standing in anamul's way and they are the current number 3 sabbir, liton and shanto. Not sure soumya at 3 is too high in their thoughts atm though I'd say it's still there, mominul I think is behind these guys though his domestic 150 may have put him ahead of anamul, not sure...

Sabbir has done nothing to prove his position as no3

Sabbir has done nothing to prove his position as no3

But he has an aesthetic (but flawed) technique. Definitely no. 3 material.

Only in Bangladesh is a no. 3 batsman completely incapable of playing swing/seam and cannot play a long innings like ever.

Sabbir is in contention as number 3 simply because he's the one that's been batting there the last year or so. I agree he hasn't proved himself, at the same time he's definitely shown glimpses. Question is how much more time will he be given to prove himself?

For me CT was kind of the decider for me, he doesn't seem ready, but I'd understand him getting another series and basically being number 3 on a series by series basis if he's doing enough to warrant longer time to prove himself in that position.

From my perspective he should probably move back down the order now and liton and shanto should be given opportunities now so we are ready for WC and have the players and team ready. I'd also like to test Soumya out down the order.

We need to do the experimenting now, in the next year so the year leading up to the WC is basically the WC team getting experience together and becoming better as a unit.

All through his life he batted middle n lower order. Shabbir should not ne in odi no 3. Technically he is not sound for this position

Gowza

His technique isn't that bad, it's his temperament mainly his patience. In that last innings he showed his defensive capabilities when he was willing to defend and stay a bit further back in the crease, he waited for the ball and defended which is the correct technique in swinging/seaming conditions.

His mindset isn't there yet though, he wants to dominate which is fine but at number 3 when you dominate you have to look to hit on the ground and find the gaps rather than play aerial, you also need the mentality of batting out the entire innings and making a big one.

He played a cover drive in the semi final, it was the perfect type of shot to play as a number 3 in that situation, it was positive cricket, it was safe, it put pressure on the opposition and it resulted in 4 runs.
