anamul and asif have proven they can score consistently, this is something mominul is yet to prove. he got a 150 a 40 odd and a 20 odd in one tour, how do we know this isn't just one good tour for him? also the 150 is impressive but his other scores are really just the best of a bad bunch, it wasn't a high scoring tour for the BD A team.

mominul might be ready but i don't think we should get to excited over one tour at least not to the point where we dismiss the options of anamul and asif, besides anamul and asif are top 3 bastmen whereas mominul isn't and our main problem is the #2 and #3 spots.
Mominul was the best batsman out of the 3 in the Academy team. He was extremely consistent in those matches especially in the 4 day matches. To me, I rate those performances higher then the NCL performances even though I do credit both Anamul and Asif for their consistent performances in the NCL. So I believe he does deserve to be in the conversation along with these 2.
