Bomi ashlo ey squad dekhe...perhaps the most terrible selection I've seen a while. I think the 11 left out of the pre-lim squad could beat this team by an innings. The only good news is that this is a squad for the First Test only. Hopefully the failures will be benched for the guys that perform out of the 11 who were left out.
As much as I doubt Nazim, I guess he *deserved* to be in the XV.
Abul Hasan over Nazmul? Why not Tapash?
Mahmudullah over Mominul and Anamul? OK perhaps expected.
I'm not terribly upset to see JS and SN, but I think they are limited players and we should have brought in Anamul and Mominul in at their expense.
Gazi is the only pseudo-surprise pick I can't argue against, although I would have selected Jr over him.
Cricket cannot live with the mistaken belief that people want to see big hits. People like to see goals, but no one is talking of moving the goalposts a metre wider either side. (Harsha Bhogle)
