Having done a bit more digging, doesnt seem like guys like Shafiul, Rubel, Nazmul, Shahadat play a lot of FC matches. Maybe because they are engaged with the NT. But how many series do we play a year for them to be engaged with NT duty? Or are we putting tours in the wrong time, when our players should actually be playing FC cricket. How can we expect our NT pacers to pick wickets in the international arena, when they dont even play FC. And if Rubel, Shahadat, Shafiul, Nazmul are our best pacers we would ideally want the batsmen to be facing such bowlers. So time to really think BCB. Consistent success in FC is imperative for national team selection. We shouldnt go by skill or perceived skill only.

Btw agree with Sohel. Taskin Ahmed is another to watch out this season. Hope 3-4 pace bowlers can hit the 40 wicket mark.
