yes well tamim is a pretty good batsman so i wouldn't expect anamul to be better than him just yet but what is being said is that by the end of their careers anamul could potentially be better than tamim....who knows that's so long away and a very long journey. but a lot of people not just on the forums but coaches think he is a pretty special player and ready for international cricket, and with our 2nd opener issues i think it's time for anamul to get a shot. if they drop nazimuddin then it will be really unfair not to give the nod to anamul since he was selected in the last, that should mean that he's next in line.

the thing with BD selection is that it can be all over the place. imo if you're going to select someone into the squad you better be willing to give them a spot in the XI if someone was to get injured or lose form/not work out otherwise you're sending mixed messages and it only harms.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
