I am really interested to know about the Bangladesh team for the World Cup. Who are the first XI? How good are the preparations? How many wins are we expecting ? Personally, I am looking forward to 3 wins - I think my expectation is quite realistic .....

Hi, welcome to the board.

We are expecting 2 wins - against Canada and against Kenya. That's it. If we get 3 wins, then we will be over the moon,

The first eleven will probably be

1) Al Shahriar Rokon
2) Hannan Sarkar
3) Mohammad Ashraful
4) Habibul Bashar Sumon
5) Sanwar Hossain / Tushar Imran
6) Alok Kapali
7) Khaled Mashud Pilot (wk)(c)
8) Khaled Mahmud Sujon
9) Tapash Baisya
10) Monjurul ISlam
11) Talha Jubair / Mashrafe Bin Murtoza Kowshik

If there is a specialist spinner necessary, then Mohammad Rafique could come in.
