How about saifuddin? I'm thinking liton should play this series, unless he's in national colours. Would also like rony to get some experience here. My pacers for the squad would be saifuddin, ebadat and rony, in them you get swing (saifuddin), pace (ebadat) and line and length (rony).

My proposed team here is for the four-day match.

If Liton is sent back after the Test series in SA, he will not make it back in time for the four day match. That case, he should be in consideration for the A-team one-day matches as well.

Irish A squad.

Eshen
September 18, 2017, 09:49 AM
"13 of the 16 players have senior international experience - only Jack Tector, Shane Getkate and Nathan Smith are uncapped at the top level...."

"Four of the squad have previous experience of Bangladesh, with George Dockrell, Andrew McBrine, James Shannon and Stuart Thompson all included in Ireland's squad for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 tournament."

Looks like a fairly strong team!

Donal C
September 18, 2017, 01:09 PM
I'm quite happy with the squad but im happier still this is actually happening.

One of the big reasons for our slide recently was a total absence of any cricket for the fringe or underage players. Its so damn crucial we continue having tours like these, and the squad itself has a good mix of internationals who need gametime and young players as well as domestic performers. This is the first time ever we'll be touring a FM with an A side.

Really looking forward to following these games, regardless of results. Hope the guys take their chances.

Shahriar Nafees
Anamul Haque
Saif Hasan
Nazmul Shanto
Naeem Islam
Nasir Hossain
Nurul Hasan
Abul Hasan
Ebadat Hossain
Saqlain Sajib
Jubair Hossain

Hope Ireland will send a strong team with most of their national players.

I think this team is PERFECT for the 4-day match. But we will be playing only one 4-day match along with 5 OD match. Based on the need for the NT I would probably tweak the batting order a bit as well as I would like like to change couple of players for the 5 match ODI series.

Playing XI for 4-Day Match:
Shahriar Nafees
Anamul Haque [ NT needs an option for RHB/LHB combination for opening slot]
Nazmul Shanto [ We desperately need a #3 to keep mini at #4]
Saif Hasan [ This young turk should be introduced at #4, then gradually work his way up]
Naeem Islam
Nasir Hossain
Nurul Hasan
Abul Hasan
Abu Jayed Rahi
Saqlain Sajib
Jubair Hossain

Playing XI for OD Match:
Shahriar Nafees
Anamul Haque
Nazmul Shanto
Naeem Islam
Nasir Hossain
Nurul Hasan
Saifuddin
Mehedi Miraz [ He needs more one day match time ]
Abul Hasan
Ebadat Hossain
Saqlain Sajib

Considering the fact that Al-Amin hussain and Shahid would not be selected mainly due to disciplinary reasons and potential U-19 players like Afif will be busy playing age level tournament at that time, this is the best team we can field which will give valuable match time for these fringe players.

Ireland have test status now, yet they can't seem to get much Cricket. This tour may seem irrelevant, but it's not. Still, I'd be surprised if Bangladesh loses a game to Ireland. They could've also involved Zimbabwe on this tour. A triangular series would've made more sense.

Donal C
September 19, 2017, 12:30 PM

Err its an A tour, thats the whole point.


Even tho some have been round donkeyears.

Examples??? Bar Anderson all of them are below 30, and Anderson could get a couple years of test cricket yet since its the format hes most suited to.

Thought MCcollom,Delaney and Little unlucky

Delaney wouldve been a good pick but hes still fairly raw.

McCollom is competing vs Tector,Terry Balbirnie and Shannon for a top order slot, unlucky for him all 4 have been in better form!

Little also is still 17, I'm sure Cricket Ireland will have something for the U19 guys (7 of whom are eligible for the next U19 WC as well IIRC) before the WC.

Should have been more youth based.

lmao Dockrell is 25 mate. He was once one of the hottest spinners going. Has regressed certainly but the lad has proven on the world stage hes got what it takes, just needs to rediscover that. What better than a tour of Bangladesh??

Shannon last played in the 2013 WT20Q. Hes 27 now and has bossed the domestic scene, he certainly deserves a shot. Entering his prime

Sean Terry is 26, again has performed for the Wolves in the last game vs NZ.

Balbirnie is 26. Had injury issues, needs game time. Also a shot to prove his captaincy skills as he may well be next in line.

S Poynter is 26. Had his best ever season for Durham. Just hit 157no for Durham seconds after a long spell with the firsts.

McCarthy is 25, has been unreal since his debut, 1 record breaking horror show vs Afg aside.

Peter Chase is 23, has a bit of pace and talented, his issue is line and length. Perfect tour for him

Lorcan Tucker was one of the leading run scorers overall at the last U19 WC. Age 21.

John Anderson is 35 in two weeks. Performed domestically, young guys could do with a sensible head accompanying them and the guy is well in line to get a Test cap next year if he performs, which he always does at the 4 day stuff. Would I have him for ODI's? No but no harm having him along.

Jack Tector is just 21, hell Im older lol. Top batsman domestically arguably, very talented perfect shot for him and will be a big test.

Shane Getkate is 25, great performances years back at u19 level, captained the wolves prior, performed domestically with ball.

Mulder is 22. Has immense potential and has ripped apart many associate sides. But as young leggies are he needs time, experience games. Perfect for him as well

Simi Singh performed at A and domestic level, not done it yet at senior but has only had about 2 or 3 games. Age 30

Nathan Smith is 22, also done well domestically. Not capped yet.

Stuart Thompson is 26. Was fantastic in the t20 vs Afghans in March, not done it in ODIs though but has potential for sure.

McBrine is 24, again a promising bowling all rounder.

So thats an average age of


378 years divided by 16 players is an average age of 23.6. How much more youth do you need lol. Take out Dockrell (130 odd caps) Balbirnie and Thompson I reckon youve got under or about 50 senior caps in that side. Really dont see any arguments against that selection.

BCB management has regressed alarmingly in the past couple of years. I think their focus is solely on BPL. **** hasn't hit the fan since the team is winning games, but that is papering over the massive infrastructural gaps. At this rate we will be exposed sooner rather than later.

Eshen
September 21, 2017, 02:10 PM
Sorry Donal, in Digital Bangladesh, the richest sports body in the country do not know how to stream a match online.

Their IT manager most likely is a family member of some board director, who most likely does not even have a clue what you're asking for.

October 4, 2017, 10:51 AM
BCB decided to field the HP squad as the A-team in the series, ignoring senior players such as Anam, Tushar, AA Hossain who are doing so well in NCL!

Bangladesh A squad for the four-day match: Nazmul Hossain Shanto (Captain), Saif Hassan, Shadman Islam, Al-Amin, Zakir Hasan, Yasir Ali Rabbi, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Sunzamul Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Ebadat Hossain, Abu Hider Rony, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Jubair Hossain.

Tushar would waste a spot. Doesnt matter if he is averaging 200. AA is not a pace bowler worthy of playing at the highest level. Anam is the only guy who should have gotten in, but if he hasnt worked on his technique he too would be a pointless selection.

That's what we thought too. But then comes Tushar Imran who dominates domestics for two seasons, yet get ignored!

A-team matches not supposed to be for development of U/19 graduates. It supposed to be for players who are knocking on the door for the national team, someone selectors can call onto when a player from the national team needs to be replaced. Likes of Shadman, Al-Amin (the batsman, not the pacer), or Yasir Ali are far from reaching that state! They did not look convincing even in the Academy matches they played over last few months, yet they get promoted to the A-team!

Gowza
October 4, 2017, 07:47 PM
Depends, if the selectors really don't see a future for seniors like tushar then it's fine they don't select them form A team cricket because they'd be investing time and money in something they wouldn't utilise.

Tushar is 34 in December, he's had a good number of opportunities at the international level (mainly ODIs), maybe they just don't think it's worth putting more time and money into him. Tushar is at an age where he could retire at any minute, he literally needs to be ready right now to perform at a high international standard otherwise if it's going to take a couple of years to get him up to scratch there is way more upside putting the time and money into a youngster that's going to give you 10-15 years.

I'm not trying to downplay seniors contribution to BD cricket, they are an important asset to developing young talent but if you've got a 33yr old bat and a 20-29 year old bat and can only pick one of them but they are both at around about the same level who is the better long term choice?

Not everyone can play until they are 40 or even 36/37, some can handle it, some can't.

Eshen
October 4, 2017, 07:57 PM
^^ Gowza, you do have a point regarding Tushar, he does not have the fitness of Misbah or Younus.

But how about Anamul or Junaid? BCB invested a lot on them too, yet squandering them by not giving them a way to move back into the national team. None of them are yet that old to be thrown away in this manner, and both of them have been doing well since last season.

In the current A-team, you have Shadman who struggled against County 2nd XIs last month, and Saif who miserably failing against Afghan U/19 team! If you're looking for a replacement for Imrul in the next Test series, it will be ridiculous even to consider them!

Yeah that's a good point about guys like anamul, junaid etc at the same time saif and Shadman might not have done so well lately but they are still leading domestic performers. Saif average 47.92 in FC cricket and he playd 21 matches so it's a decent amount of matches for a youngster to keep that sort of record. Shadman is averaging 40 so not as impressive but it's still solid.

Definitely guys like anamul, someone like tasamul, naeem etc they should be getting opportunities, really anyone who is doing well should be in contention for a spot, then it also comes down the team composition and what they want in the team.

There's idiot, there's retardation and then there's Taskin Ahmed, your obsession with Taski is so baffling.

He is such a bad bowler, he shoots one hit me bowl every over.

October 4, 2017, 09:03 PM
used to enjoy al Furqaan's posting. Sadly blind emotions and also egotism in regards to "your worthy of a response when you have similar amount of posts than me" is dimnishing your stocks as a decent poster on BC. On top of that brushing every single other performer under the carpet and holding Taskin in such high status is baffling. Taskin has some good but he is severely lacking in skills to be a genuine test pacer.

But then again who I am to dictate terms in regards to how you should think. Im only on 7k posts. Ill have to wait another 10 years to be on your level.

DinRaat.
October 4, 2017, 09:11 PM
IMO, Taskin is nothing special, he has been hyped up and he has been given too much fame at a young age, doesn't look like he wants to improve.

Sadly he will end up as another Mohammad Irfan or Wahab Riaz. Minus the pace and aggression.

If you take that match between India A and bangladesh he averages an umimpressive 5.85 eco. That's just touching six. Ironically bowlers like Al-Amin who have been neglected have a sweet economy of just 5.14.

Now Taskin Ahmed fans will come out with their pitchforks stating that it's the fielders fault for dropping his balls.

Taskin has a significantly better T20I econ rate. Chasing 140-5 is easier than 190 all out. Just saying. But who really cares about T20s anyways? AA could be Malcolm Marshall, I really wouldn't be that impressed.

In ODIs, you would have to give me AA's CV because I can't come up with it off the top of my head. He's got a marginally better average than Taskin, and is a better death bowler. I'll give him that.

But Taskin has - in addition to a hattrick (OK in a meaningless phase of the game but still a hattrick is a hattrick) - clutch performances down the stretch.

2015 WC vs England, Taskin got Jos Buttler or whoever it was top-scored for England at a vital point down the stretch when the game could have gone either way. Then he did everything to seal the win when Tamim dropped Woakes in a now-infamous dolly. That catch taken, and Rubel doesn't even need to mop up the tail (full credit to Rubel though). Now what part of Tamim dropping that sitter is Taskin's fault? I sure would like to know.

India series win...we all know Fizz was the MOS there - and yet the phrase "eclipse logic" is a term that hasn't been coined yet. But OK, I guess you guys have realized he's a troll merely pretending to be Bangladeshi. Fairi enough. But India was sitting pretty at 95-0 inside 17 overs chasing 300 when Taskin got rid of two mediocre batters named Dhawan and Kohli (when has he ever won a game chasing a total???) - setting the game up for the genius that is Fizz.

England series 2016. OK fine it was just an England A team...but Taskin still got the big wickets down the stretch to ice the one game we won.

In Tests, neither AA nor Taskin has played a statistically significant (n = 20) number of innings. But you factor in the regulation catches dropped off his bowling and Taskin would have a similar average to AA's 70+.

If they are all averaging 70+, who would you take between Rubel, AA, or a quick-by-BD-standards young bowler with a higher talent ceiling bowler?

You're alright, Eshen.

I wanted to "retire" from the forum about 2 years ago, and actually did so for the most part. The forum changed. When I first came here, in 2004, Bangladesh were a pathetic side. If you listen to many of the present day forumites rants on Mushy's captaincy, Taskin's bowling, Shakib's recklessness, yada yada yada one would find it hard to believe we're not that same side still, ranked well behind Kenya.

If you look throughout the forum, very few of the old heads are still here. Forums outlive their usefulness. Or maybe its just life and other demands. Most of the old guys now have families and kids, so its understandable. But then again, they have stopped posting completely. I know them on facebook, and they are still following and in many cases watching every ball live to this day, yet they stopped posting.

This forum was a means of coping for BD fans in the days when we truly did suck. Kids these days complain about Mushfiq's captaincy...back then we had HaBa. People complain about Shakib's impulses...back then we had Ash and Aftab. People complain about Taskin...back then we had Md Sharif and Dollar Mahmud.

Frankly, we don't need the group therapy of BC anymore. If the team loses a game, we know we can win the next one, or at worst the one after that. In 2004, you didn't know if the next win would come, forget about when.

Times change, people change. Forums change.

I'm sure I will still browse, but I really don't see the point of posting. Maybe I'm growing too old to keep beefing with everyone (there was a time when I relished that...I am probably BC's most banned member).

I'm sure culture plays a role as well. Apart from cricman and Rommel who never posts here anymore, I'm one of the very few guys who was actually born in the US. I didn't just immigrate to America to take a white man's job, I am America. At least I was till last year haha.

This forum did give me amazing times. I learned a lot about the game from here. But its probably time to move on.

I might still post if I really really feel the urge, but I think its safe to say this chapter ends here. Perhaps like an Asian cricketer's career, the end probably came a few years later in it should have.

^^ That's a good perspective there Asad. Yes, this is no more a fan forum for a minnow team. We now expect the Tigers to perform in par with Pakistan or Sri Lanka, or do even better. Bangladesh team came a long way, so have the fans. They have all the reasons to have much higher expectations from the current team than how it used to be 10-12 years ago.

al Furqaan
October 4, 2017, 11:05 PM
Yeah so no hard feelings for the real BD fans here. We all have players we like for whatever reason but at the end of the day we are all Bangladesh fans and thats probably more important. Team bigger than any individual player, although if the team were full of players I don't like, I'd stop caring.

Of course none of that applies to the trolls. And yes, I've done my fair share of trolling. I guess it takes a certain personality flaw to engage in that type of behavior. Anyways my trolling days are through here...the show will move on to other forums, lol.

Anamul gets a pretty raw deal, he keeps scoring domestic runs but doesn't get any more opportunities.

Ok he did poorly in his initial test match chances but he was very young, he did alright in ODIs.

Anamul is the perfect candidate for A team cricket, he's on top of the domestic charts year after year, but isn't in the national team and has some weaknesses to work on, plus he's young.

Well they can't really do much about his attitude if they don't work with him. It's as simple as telling him, hey we know you are talented, we see you consistently scoring runs, we want to consider you for the national team but we need you to work on your attitude, we are here with you on the A tours to help you get where you need to get so you find yourself back in national colours.

He'll either work on his attitude and comeback into consideration or he won't work on his attitude and his international career may well be over if that's the options he picks.

Summary: Nadif Chowdhury (http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56053.html) caught the selectors' attention after scoring a sparkling 166 (239), containing 17 fours and 6 sixes, in a recently concluded NCL match against Khulna. Habibul Bashar said that Nadif was always reputed to be a big hitter, which was why he was selected at the age of 19 for three T20I matches. In those matches against Zimbabwe and Pakistan in 2006-2007, his highest score was 12 and he was clearly under-cooked for the international level. Now at the age of 30, and having scored a big hundred in an FC match at a good SR, the selectors think he deserves a shot at the 'A' team level to see if he can reproduce this performance on the international stage.

You say 2/3 players,I say pfffft.
This is an experienced unit,we are down to the last game,and they have not won a single game.
Doesn't bode well for the one day and intercontinental side.
Also a loss and draw in last 2 intercontinetal games.
Ireland are 12th in one dayers,and their T20 side is like 18th or 20th in rankings,

Donal C

OK Donal
Response:
Balbirnie in firsts,

This one I'll give you. As I said before was sent to groom his captaincy skills and gain form as he's recovering from a serious leg injury which kept him out for a year.

John Anderson in Intercontinetal side,

This one I will also give you. In case you didnt notice we're having a debut test game in May, Anderson was likely sent to number 1 be an experienced head in a dressing room of young players and 2 give him a chance to cement a test spot

Peter Chase in firsts

I'll give you this one as well! But in case you didnt notice, Chase is 24 years old and fairly raw and inaccurate. Tell me why he should be excluded when he's literally the perfect candidate to send on an A team tour? Young, needs overs under his belt and gets to bowl in alien conditions.


,George Dockerill in intercontinental cup

Again, Dockrell is only 25 and considering its Asia what other spinner would you recommend Ireland send in his place? Like Chase he's a perfect candidate for the tour.
Young, form his fallen away drastically in recent years that is true. This is a perfect chance for him to play some games and bowl some overs.

Andrew Mcbrine former firsts player in all forms,

Exactly. FORMER. How many A sides do you know of that have not had a single fringe senior squad player involved? ITS LITERALLY WHAT A TOURS ARE FOR!! To give young players a shot at performing as well as senior fringe players. Not only that, but McBrine is also young only 24! What other young spinning all rounders in Ireland do you know of who would've done better?


Barry Mcccarthy firsts

Nope! Has played a fair few games alright but most definitely not a guaranteed starter and has been left out of several matches in the past year. Also, he's also young at 25 so wrong again.

,Jacob Mulder firsts

Nope! Has played a few games at senior level alright e.g Desert t20 and AFG series, but has not played for Ireland since then barring the ICup game vs Holland which was his first ever senior four day appearance. Also, he's 22!! Again, what other Irish leggies do you know of who are better or younger??!! Varun Chopra the only one that comes to mind and he'S 17 and likely in final year of school so unavailable, and he's nowhere near the standard yet.

Simi Singh in and out of firsts side

See my point re McBrine. Fringe senior player who hadnt performed in his handful of appearances, this tour a good chance to play and gain confidence considering he' only debuted in May.

,Jack Tector in intercontinental side

Do me a favour and tell me how many times he batted. Wait he didnt because he was in the squad but not played. Also, he's 21 years old!! AND performed domestically.
So he'S untested at the top level, never played in Asia before and has scored domestically. ON WHAT PLANET does he not go on tour with the A team

,Sean Terry in and out of firsts side

Gee a whopping 5 ODI's and 1 t20, hasnt played internationally in over a year and also quite young at 26. Again, on what planet has he not earned a spot on the A team tours.

,Stuart Thompson firsts side
Nope! Squad player normally! Plays the odd game mind and IS a t20 starter generally. Re: ODI's though, again he's earned a chance to play on the A team


,Lorcan Tucker in T20 side

Wow a whopping 3 t20 appearances. Not only that but 21 years old and again a young talent. Why should he not be here?

,Jamie Shannon former firsts side.

27, excellent domestically and more importantly an aggressive bat.Has 3 appearances internationally over 4 years ffs last game being 1 t20 vs HK in 2016.

You say 2/3 players,I say pfffft.

Out of all the players you listed, I count 2 REGULAR starters. Dockrell and Balbirnie, the reasons for their selection I'Ve had to give yet again. I also count 2 squad players who play semi regularly who debuted before the start of this year (McBrine and Thompson) Everyone else in the squad bar Singh (debuted in May) and Anderson (multi day specialist) is a young cricketer who has performed domestically and in the A teams prior games, who has never played in Asia before and who are crying out for games vs a full member side.

How about you list the players Ireland should have sent, keeping in mind that this is close enough to the best squad we couldve picked.

This is an experienced unit,we are down to the last game,and they have not won a single game.

The hell its experienced. Out of todays XI, Dockrell Thompson Balbirnie and Anderson can claim to be either a) old and/or have enough caps or been around the set up long enough to be experienced.. And none of them have many caps at all bar Dockrell. Hell out of those 4 all are mid twenties bat Anderson
Doesn't bode well for the one day and intercontinental side.

In case you didnt notice they havent being going swimmingly well as it is, hence the need for more of these A tours so the fringe players can improve and play quality cricket
Also a loss and draw in last 2 intercontinetal games.

1 vs Afg in India and the other on a flat deck vs the Dutch.

Ireland are 12th in one dayers,and their T20 side is like 18th or 20th in rankings,

What has that got to do with the A team exactly?

In context this tour against virtual no names in the scheme of things,its highly disappointing.

What context? The BD posters here who know a hell of a lot more than us on these players seem to be of the opinion that its a young side but a talented one. Not only that but its our first ever tour of a FM team, there have been several stand out individual performances which are all A team cricket is about at the end of the day and we've competed well in all bar 1 match! Could have won the washed out one as well. You also ignore these BD players have played wayyyyyy more cricket than the Irish ones, Dockrell excepted, due to BD's domestic structure.

What would you propose? Ireland sent a team of primarily mid to low 20's cricketers, a mix of fringe senior players and talented youth, with 2 or 3 experienced heads along to come back from injury and lend the younger guys experience. If this A selection is so stupidly bad, why not give me a list of names who should've been sent instead, bearing in mind the U19 squad have a WC to prepare for.

Not 1 person on the planet bar yourself expected Ireland to win this series. Not 1 person in Ireland is displeased with the squad either. I think that speaks volumes. Despite your doom and gloom they've done creditably for a bunch of guys from a domestic system that before this year didnt even have status and is only 4 years old.

Lol says you. Every other sane individual will look at Shannon's 90, Singh's 100, McBrine's bowling in the FC game, Mulder's bowling and Balbirnie's eventual good form as big positives to take.

Nobody cares or remembers results of A games. If 1 player from this tour improves themselves from it and carries that over to senior games this tour will already have proven to be a massive success.

You've also ignored my request to name the players you feel should've been here but oh well.

Ireland A team have done well in BD. To be honest I didn't expect this level of resistance from them. This BD team is a good one. As SportingBD mentioned 5 of them has international experience and others have made few tours to overseas as well. It's bit too much to expect Ire A to win in subcontinent at this stage. A teams of established test nations don't often go back taking a win in their bags either.

All in all a fairly useful tour. Don't think there's a huge margin between the teams as most games were fairly competitive (3rd ODI notwithstanding). Lack of top level experience for the batsmen showed with nearly all of them having one good knock showing they can play at this level but none of them doing so in the same game.

More tours like this can only help us develop, all in all a very worthwhile investment.
