Selectors have decided the squad for the 1st test against WI

Anwar
Hannan
Ashraful
Habibul
Aminul
Alok
Khaled*
Naimur
Rafique
Tapash
Talha

Rokon, Sanwar, Tushar, Monju will be out. Only two pacers.
A completely new opening pair - let's see. Rokon and Sanwar are out even
their good performance in SA tests.

DS mentioned a slightly different scenario in today's paper. 5 from the SA tour are dropped - rafiqul (still hurt from the scooter accident, wonder if that is serious), monir the bowler, javed, tushar and mahmud. they overlooked mahmud for the one dayers so dropping him for tests is hardly a surprise. dropping javed for tests i don't agree with.

incoming are: naimur, bulbul, ash, munir the wk/opener, and our good friend enamul haque moni.

no mention of rafique on the team.

it doesn't surprise me that talha won't play as posted before. so, 2 pacers, no ehsanul or mahmud. good luck

Rokon, Sanwar, Monju, Moni are in the 15 member team. Inquilab gave the 11 names.

So Golla, Tushar, Seezan, Sujon are dropped.

There's only one Munir. That's Anwar Hussein Munir the pacer.
We have two ANWAR's, the keeper and that pacer. :)

What's this crass about only two pacers ? Feed us something, tell us that Talha is injured, otherwise we will be forced to think that our selectors are on a high dosage of Ganja.

If bd_cricket is correct, looks like Talha is in the XI and Monju is out. I don't understand this obsession with spinners.
