I am bit surprised to see Shakib & Tamim not having a double century in first Class Games.
I hope he gets the double too and a big one at that if not the triple.

But is he ready for ODIs though? I think he has done well in a DPL match recently (or was it Asif?), but overall his DPL and List A records are poor. He did OK in the BPL, but IMO if we're introducing someone new to the team at this stage, we should ideally make sure he can start delivering right away (like Nasir) instead of taking a gazillion years to learn his trade (like Tamim).

Then again, Ian Pont says he's ready, and he's the expert.

As for Shakib and Tamim, they don't really get to play too many FC games thanks to national duty anyways. Both have been playing for the national team since they were 18 and most of their development has been with the national team through playing international cricket.
