Where is everyone? only a week and a bit left. Squad should be announced today or tomorrow. Whats everyone thinking about the possible lineup?

My lineup would be,

Tamim
Imrul
Mominul
Mushy (c)
Shakib
Mosaddek
Liton (wk)
Miraz
Taijul
Shafiul
Fizz

Extras: Taskin, Nasir, Soumya

I know they wont go with this, but this wouldve been my ideal squad. I dont think Soumya deserves that opening slot or one down ahead of either Imrul or Mominul. They will probably drop both Mominul and Kayes and play Soumya and Shabbir. But on merit, form... Imrul and Mominul deserves to play this game. Hope Liton plays and keeps so we can have Mushy up the order to mix up the righty lefty combination. Heard Mosaddek maybe recovering from an injury or illness in which case Nasir should play. This guy cant perform no more. Solid batsman at home, decent bowling option and best fielder.

Shafiul gets the nod ahead of Taskin and Rubel because all 3 are likely to be ineffective but Shafiul will probably be the most economical. Musta-Miraz-Taijul-Shak can take 20 wickets.

I thought about a balanced low turning wicket before but with occasional rain on forcast, we need to prepare a pitch that can have a result within 4 days. If we take that chance and lose it, meh.. Indians have a few laugh, Pakistanis invites us again but thats it. But if we take that chance and win... it will shock the world alright! So I would take that chance..

I don't see why Soumya should be dropped when he gave us 3 half centuries the last 2 tests. You are letting Champions Trophy cloud your judgment. I would go with this:

Tamim
Soumya
Mominul
Mushy
Shakib
Mosaddek
Litton
Miraz
Fizz/Taijul/Shafiul/Subashish

Mossadek 3rd would be interesting. I would love to see Nasir back in the ODI team, but not tests.

@Yankees.. Soumya may not deserve a chop but same could said on a high scale for Kayes. Tamim-Kayes is the best test opening partner we have ever had and I see no reason why this should be altered to experiment

Rifat
August 18, 2017, 12:17 AM
1. Tamim
2. Soumya/Imrul
3. Mominul
4. Rahim(c)
5. Shakib(vc)
6. Mosaddek
7. Litton Das(wk)
8. Mehedi Hasan
9. Shafiul Islam/Mohammad Shohid
10. Fizz
11. Taijul

If you wanna take an extra batsmen then Drop taijul and bring in Nasir

You can't have Soumya, Mominul and Imrul all in the same XI you can only choose 2 out of three.

I would choose 19 people:

Seamers: Fizz, Mohammad Shohid, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Kamrul Islam Rabbi (3 choose 6)
Spinners: Taijul, Mehedi Hasan
Allrounders: Shakib, Nasir
Batsmen: Tamim, Imrul, Soumya, Mominul, Mosaddek, Riyad, Sabbir(5 choose 7)
Wicket Keeper: Rahim, Litton Das

I think This is what the selection may come down to barring any injuries or last minute surprise inclusions.

This tells you everything you need to know about our test team. Just because they were our best doesn't mean it was any good. We suck at tests bro. So experiment we shall.

Imrul's test average is 28.19. Soumya's test average is 37.00. And he is also 6 years younger than Imrul. You want the same mediocrity we have always enjoyed? Then, by all means, go ahead with Tamim-Imrul. But if you want the chance at something better, you persist with Soumya. Maybe he comes good, maybe not. Who knows. But he's already giving us the same as Imrul, but with a lot more upside.

Fizz is a liability in test. His frazile body isn't suitable for playing the longer form of cricket.

TBH the way he was bowling in Champions trophy, he looked like a liability in ODIs too. Definitely not the same bowler as he was in 2015.

True. His secret code has already been cracked by most of the batters. It's almost certain that he will never be as threatening as he was in his first couple of serieses. It will get tougher and tougher for him from here on.

Imruls test average doesnt reflect his performance in the last 2 years which is pretty good. I didnt Soumya doesnt deserve a go.. but I dont see why is Imrul being overlooked.

This is exactly what we should want as fans. Guys getting in and out of the team based on merit.

Mominul and Riad have not been performing so they get dropped. Nasir had a very good domestic performance, and he's back in the fold. As was the case with Liton. If Mominul is good enough, he will prove it in the domestic structure, and he will get another chance. And I fully expect him back.

Lol Sabbir in tests again.. That's why we can't develop any young players, supposedly our savior in test cricket gets dropped after a bad series for someone who's a t20 specialist. Wouldn't be in my 11 but is must in the squad must be demoralizing for him.

Mushfiq
Shakib
Mossadek
Liton
Miraz
Taijul
Taskin
Fizz

And can someone enlighten me on shafiul, has he added 14lbs and become a Jimmy Anderson that everyone is putting in the team and making the squad, he won't complete 10 overs forget a test match

যে সৌম্য সরকারের কথা বললেন মিনহাজুল, বাঁহাতি ওপেনার কিন্তু একটা সময় হারিয়ে ফেলেছিলেন ছন্দ। প্রায় দেড় বছর ফর্মের সঙ্গে যুঝতে থাকা সৌম্যকে বয়ে বেরিয়েছে বাংলাদেশ দল। সেখানে মাত্র দুই টেস্টের পারফরম্যান্স দেখে মুমিনুল বাদ!

ছন্দ ফিরে পেতে সৌম্যকে যেভাবে সমর্থন দিয়েছেন, মুমিনুলকে কেন নয়? প্রশ্নটা কোচকেও করা হলো। বাংলাদেশ কোচের ব্যাখ্যা, ‘নির্দিষ্ট কোনো খেলোয়াড়কে প্রাধান্য দিই না। প্রাধান্য দিই বাংলাদেশ দলকে। চেষ্টা করি দলকে জেতাতে। আপনারা যাদের নিয়ে উদ্বিগ্ন, বাদ পড়ার আগে তাদের পারফরম্যান্স আগে দেখুন। তার মানে এই নয় যে তাদের ক্যারিয়ার শেষ।’

It takes balls or the complete lack of it to drop the statistically best batsman from the side based in a few bad games.

This is where haturis plan is flawed. I don't care if Bangladesh wins the game. They are ruining Mominuls career. The guy doesn't play odi, doesn't play t20 and now doesn't play test.... He is gonna be the next Jubair...

Can't complain much with the squad other than the fact that it's good. Realistically, neither Shabbir or Shafiul will make it into the XI unless somebody is injured. Someone like Shabbir will most likely be the 12th man or something. Taskin and Fizz will be our frontline pacers while Shakib, Taijul and Mehedi will form the spin trio. If we have pitches we used against England last year, Australia will stand no chance despite having Warner and Smith in their ranks. With regards to batting, most likely it will be Tamim-Sarker-Imrul, and I don't really see a problem with that to be honest. Mushfiqur, Shakib, Liton and Mosaddek will form a strong middle-order. I would like to see Nasir, but he will only play unless either Mosaddek/Mehedi struggles or is injured. Really, it's hard to predict the outcome of this test series.

Prediction: 2-0 to Bangladesh.

What are you blind? This is Anik. He always posts crap like this. Last time it was Subashish or Hom in the NZ team, and he made the same accusations. Said that Hatura must have some secret agenda.

And regarding the article, it's not relevant at all. Soumya was not given a long run in the test team to get his rhythm back. It was ODI where he was persisted with, and that had more to do with lack of opening options. Tests does not equal ODI. Also, Soumya has 3 half centuries in the past 4 innings. How is that not enough to justify a place in the team? Apparently even the reporters from "the most well known Bengali newspaper" don't get that, like the majority of our fans.

I am not questioning SS's spot. In a different thread, wrote that mominul hasn't done anything to be a automatic choice. But his exclusion is certainly news worthy.

Reporters don't get that. Majority of fans don't get that. Experts such as Bulbul/Faruq/Lipu/Salahuddin who all questioned the decision didn't get it. But I'm glad that you got it.

Finally, even if Anik is Pakistani, why do we even care?

Question still remains that either of SS/Shabbir could have been replaced with Mominul. But I'm not too bothered by his exclusion either.

Sabbir yes. But Soumya no. He's done well enough to keep his spot. Sabbir, on the other hand, is very clearly not a Test player. My guess is Sabbir will get dropped to make room for Mominul in the next series.

Souyma in my mind will always remain a Ashrafulesque type of batsmen, performs once in a blue moon.

Drop him for Mominul.

This is actually very good initiative by Hatura and the selectors. Finally we are thinking and acting like a proper team. Guys are having to justify their place in the team.

This is how the top teams do things. No one gets an automatic place in the team. We are finally getting away from the mentality that allowed someone like Riyad to coast through the test team his entire career.

Our fans and media can't handle this because they don't follow other team's cricket and only follow Bangladesh. So in their mind this is an outrage because this is different from what we have always done. Well what we have always done resulted in us being the joke of the cricket world.

God bless Hatura! Glad to have a coach that isn't afraid to drop fan favorites for the sake of the team or give in to the incessant whining of the media.

Thing is Mominul is top order and Sabbir is late order in test. So they are not competing. If sabbir fails, Nasir will take his spot.

Mominul may come in for either SS/Kayes.

I am more worried about our bowling. Taskin/Shaiful gives me nightmares and Musta is still struggling. Smith/Warner/Maxwell are very good against spinners. They won't fold like the English did.

Taskin and Shafi will leak runs like a broken fire hydrant.

Taskin is a garbage bowler. Part time cricketer, full time model.

দলে ফিরলেন মুমিনুল

প্রথম টেস্টের দল থেকে মুমিনুল হকের বাদ পড়া অনেক আলোচনা-সমালোচনা জন্ম দিয়েছিল। ঠিক এমন অবস্থায় আবারও দলে ফিরলেন মুমিনুল। মোসাদ্দেক হোসেনের চোটে দলে ঢুকে পড়েছেন মুমিনুল।

So much drama for getting a pathetic player like mominul in the squad. This is why we'll never improve in cricket. Our selectors aren't manly enough to stick to their decisions.

Get ready for some single digit scores from our tuk tuk master.

What's mominul'average In last two years in test cricket, what was his highest score during this period? How many memorable knocks has he played in domestics in last couple of years?

He was rightly kicked out. But now he has managed to get back to the team by using media as a tool.

Special treatment with certain pool of cricketers every time. The trend is eminent since late 2014 with the arrival of Soumya..

Bangladesh: Double Standards hurts Mominulhttp://www.thedailystar.net/sites/default/files/styles/big_2/public/news/images/mominul_1.jpg?itok=9ojl8_-f

Mominul Haque and Soumya Sarkar are both talented players. The national selectors and the head coach will not disagree with that assessment. However, it may sound harsh that they are not being treated the same by the team think-tank when it comes to selecting the national team; you may even raise the question that in this regard there is a double standard. The last few days' speculation turned into reality yesterday when the selectors, including coach Chandika Hathurusingha, announced a 14-member team for the first Test against Australia without Mominul. Mominul's omission was the centre of argument during the lengthy press conference and the explanations from chief selector Minhajul Abedin and Hathurusingha only served to provide further evidence that the diminutive left-hander has not been treated fairly at all..

A test squad is no place for half-all-rounders unless you're world class. It should consist of specialists in all departments (batting, pace and spin).

I will be waiting to see Nasir to get a 100 (at least a 50+ score) and Shafiul to get a 5-wicket haul (at least 3 wickets).

RealSports
August 21, 2017, 11:07 AM
Shabbir shouldn't be anywhere near the test squad or even ODIs. At this moment, he looks good for T20s. I rate Nasir a much better player than Shabbir in the main forms. The problem with Mominul is that he hasn't scored a test 100 since that Zimbabwe series back in 14, and that's too long now for my liking. I still want him to be part of the XI since he's not a regular in limited overs. Who knows? he may have improved on his game since he last played. I would choose Sarker to partner Tamim, but I don't mind if Imrul gets selected. Most-likely it will be Tamim-Sarker-Imrul-Mominul-Shakib-Mushfiqur-Liton...middle-order looks very solid.

August 21, 2017, 11:29 AM
I don't want Sabbir either although he is still one of fav. Mominul should play at No. 4 although I'm tentative to play Mushy at No. 3.

I will go with the following order from the selection:

1. Tamim
2. SS
3. Mushy (c)
4. Mominul
5. Shakib
6. Liton (wk)
7. Nasir
8. Mehidy
9. Taijul
10. Shofiul
11. Fizz

However this won't be the squad on Day 1.

Anyone know about the state of the pitch? I'm worried that if it's been absorbing water it'll be faster than usual.

On the other hand if they've had no time to actually work on it due to the rain it might actually break down quicker than usual.

Not sure which way it will go.

Coz we're hoping for a spinny track and won't need more than 2 pacers. Fizz is an automatic choice. As Taskin leaks runs and Australia knows pace bowling like the back of their hand, Shofiul is perhaps a better choice than Taskin. He seems to be more defensive and knows his limitations. Taskin thinks that he is Brett Lee.

Again, it's just a selection of the worse 2, won't impact much on the result.

Well they won't get ready by just sitting around. Plenty of teams throw youngsters into it nowadays, a lot of teams are having trouble finding quality long term prospects and they don't want to continue with pointless talent, they'd rather be searching for the next great.

Obviously within reason don't just throw anyone in, but can't just keep going with proven fails, it doesn't help the team now and it doesn't help the team for the future.

Give the youngsters experience if the elders aren't up to par.

Our "best" test batsmen is pathetic 5th. Soumya not only has him beat on average, but also on 50s achieved. Yet it's Soumya that gets all the hate from the media and fans. Pathetic

No way we win with this lineup. We are not going to out bat Aus. I would replace Sabbir for Taijul, and beg for rank turner.

You dont win test matches with part timers. Taijul is pretty reliable if he gets the right pitch.

So is Nasir. ODI match vs SA he got 3 crucial wickets.

Taijul can actually turn the ball more than the other two. And also makes sense playing him with Sunil Joshi as the consultant coach.

Criticism doesn't mean any hate. He deserves the criticism from fans if he plays poor. Now he's in good form in Test? His last few test innings are good but those were long time ago. His recent performance has been poor. Still gets all the defence.
Infact I would say he's one of the least criticized cricketers out there.

And for your information it's not Soumya but Hatura who is mostly being criticized for his bigoted selection policy.

WTH are you even trying to say? :-/:-/

Recent performance as in CT? So we should decide test team based on ODI performance? Brilliant stuff. You do all these mental gymnastics to make it seem like your criticism of Soumya is objective when it's pretty obvious its not. Do you ever get tired of looking like a complete tool?

Is Liton Das almost confirmed to be the WK? I think Hathu will go for Imrul over Mominul. Also I would prefer Mosaddek over Sabbir. With Mosaddek in the team we could replace Nasir with Taijul. Taijul's left armers would be handy. Mosaddek could bowl few overs if needed. The weakest link in the team is Safiul in my opinion. But anyway I think Hathu will pick this xi:
Tamim, Somyo, Imrul, Mushy, Shakib, Liton, Sabbir, Mehedi, Taijul, Mustafiz, Safiul.

If you wanna take an extra batsmen then Drop taijul and bring in Nasir

You can't have Soumya, Mominul and Imrul all in the same XI you can only choose 2 out of three.

I would choose 19 people:

Seamers: Fizz, Mohammad Shohid, ....

I think This is what the selection may come down to barring any injuries or last minute surprise inclusions.

Why is everyone having shafiul in the team?

10. Roy/Shahid/Taskin

To Whom It May Concern

Yes, Tamim's 2017 Stat doesn't look good at all. But he cannot be defined based on 7-8 months' performance only. Just look at his 2015 & 16 Stat, simply world class. Besides statistics, he has matured a lot in recent times, plays with more confidence and tries to stay at the crease to build partnerships.

seen enough.... more then enough

Imrul, Liton needs to come straight on. If they can get Mosaddek back then drop Imrul as well. Soumya-Sabbir-Imrul...... that top order doesnt get more inconsistent.
