Since it seems like the BOSS (Rafique) is coming back for 4th/5th game, who he will replace from the current team? Definitely we cannot drop Enamul but dont want to drop Rana also after he got 4 wks. I know Rana's batting sucks but still...

So who do you think that he will replace? Enamul or Rana?

Enamul, because Rana can bat as well!

We cannot have Nazmul and Enamul in the same team. Too risky. If we loose the toss and ZIB bats first, you can say bye-bye with Nazmul & Enamul in the lineup plus our fragile middle order.

Enamul... he was expansive... as the selectors rightly assumed.

Rafique is considered as a bowler even though he saved us many times with his batting. And rana is considered as a bowling allrounder. So rafique is gonna replace enam i think. The line up goes like this
3 specialist bowlers,2 pacemen 1 spinner,
2 all-rounders, 1 seemer another spinner,
rest batsmen.

If Rafique comes back, then we should drop Rana

I agree with Fazal that we can not efford Nazmul and Enamul in the same team for their very poor batting unless we have first batting. Therefore, I usually prefer Taposh over Nazmul. However, Nazmul is doing better bowling than Taposh in this ODI series and so he deserves to be selected for the next match.

As a result Enamul could be the 1st choice to be dropped. But still, it would be a difficult choice and any one of the following candidates could be dropped to accomodate Rafique in the playing XI.

1. Enamul 47% possibility (NA + 2/37 + 0/53)
2. Rana 46% " (NA + 0/46 + 4/34)
3. Chacha 4% " (2/50 + 1/35 + 2/42)
4. Nazmul 2% " (2/35 + NA + 2/34

# 1% probability still remains to keep Rafique out of the squade to give him more time for his physical+mental recovery and play with the same team of the 3rd ODI.

Enamul probably wont be dropped just after on bad performance.
He already has got far bigger reputation for that.

Rana's ODI-3 performance was only 'occational' and he won't sustain with it most probably.. so the balance is far more tilted towards Enam Jr. than Rana.

Najmul did well... as always he was right on stumps! And form the experience of the first 3 ODI's... we know it very well already that If we want to BEAT ZIMs.... our bowling CAN'T be loose!! ZIM batting has got good strength... and we must have a flawless bowling against it! Nazmul is a good candidate for that!!

I think Jr will be dropped not just because he did bad but its going to be a tactical change... and i would prefer tapash as he can bat too so we will have all 11 batsman though in ideal case we shouldn't depend on our 10 and 11 batsmen for win so nazmul probably will have better chnace of playing then tapash.. lets see what happens...
