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.
Bangladesh is a stronger team with Shakib al Hasan.
