Tusher is MUST. How can you leave out your best best ODI performer in recent times ?

Sanwar (our new Bulbul as far as being dependable. )
Ashraful (27 and 44 and the GUTS)
Ehsanul (sumon/Rokon gets another shot)
Tusher (should have been there from the 1st ODI)
Kapali (as a batsmen)
Shujon/Rafique (the wicket sugests that we can use Shujon.)
Durjoy (I like this guy now, he is turning out to be a fighter. As long as he is not the captain)
Pilot (given his past record with bowling changes and that he only had two pacers to rotate, he did pretty good. Did not continue with the same bowler if the bowler was getting whacked. Not to forget his 41)
Rafique/Tapash
Talha
Manju

We can retain both Taposh and Rafique and not play Shujon.

I am starting to think that they should have picked Bulbul in the ODI squad, would have provided some solidity to the middle order. And of course, Sujon would have done well both in Chittagong and in Dhaka. I think our team needs fighting spirit more than it needs talent. Rokon is said to be our most talented batsman, but he gets a golden duck while Pilot scores 41. That says something.

It's still immature of the selector's to keep away Bulbul because he is too old ? Gimme a break.

Age should not be a factor if the player is in form, getting runs, is in shape. DUH. Let's not forget the experience and class.

I like the team that Sham proposed but I would like to make one change:

Bring in another specialist batsman (Hannan, Golla, or Aminul) instead of Kapali. The reason is that Kapali is probably not going to be used as a bowler as his bowling has proved to be ineffective but his inclusion in the team just does not give the batting depth that BD needs.

If we are to play another batsmen why not a more experienced one-day batsman. Even playing Sujon will give some bowling options.

So my line up:

Ehsanul
Ashraful
Sanwar
Tushar
Hannan, Golla, Sujon, or Aminul
Mashud
Durjoy
Rafique
Talha
Taposh
Monju

Golla or Bulbul, probably Bulbul to replace Kapali ? Doesn't sound too bad. Bulbul is as good or better then Kapali with the all and we really don't have to mention his batting, do we ? (unless he flops, eheh)

Golla/Tusher
Ehsanul
Ashraful
Sanwar
Bulbul
Durjoy
Pilot
Rafique
Talha
Tapash
Manju

Can we actually pick Bulbul and Sujon?? The reason I didn't have them in my team is because they are not in the ODI squad. So I was picking from the 14. If we can pick them, we really ought to. Then my team would be:

Ehsanul
Rafiq
Ashraful
Sanwar
Bulbul
Tushar
Masud
Sujon
Durjoy
Taposh/Talha
Monju

I think opening with Rafiq might actually work. If he can stick around for 5 or 6 overs, we could get off to a decent start. If he gets out to Drakes, well, better he gets out than someone else. Also, since we don't have a lefty in our batting, having a lefty slogger at the top might upset the WI line. But lets face it, this team is not going to play tonight. They will probably still go with pretty much last night's team.

What are you Pilot???anyway Bulbul must be in the side he's been there for a while and age is NOT a factor. He's as old as Darren Lehmann who has just been recalled. Pilot and Manju (for the ODI's) and Pilot, Monju, Rokon and Sumon (for the tests)are safe

My side:
Ehsanul
Hannan(is he injured or something)
Ashraful
Sanwar
Tushar
Alok
Pilot
Rafique
Taposh
Monju
Talha

Sujon is my third seamer. You probably missed that out.

So far, I have read two reports on two papers.

One said that Hannan and Tushar Imran would be back.

Another one said that Tushar Imran would be back also, wicket keeper Anwar Hossain might replace Al Shahriar for the 3rd ODI.

By the way, it is now a certainty that both Rokon and Sumon will be dropped for the 3rd ODI.
