Offspinner Sohag Gazi and medium-pacer Abul Hasan have been selected in Bangladesh's Test squad for the first time, for the opening fixture of the home series against West Indies in Mirpur from November 13.
Hasan, a 20-year-old fast bowler from Sylhet, has played four Twenty20 internationals for Bangladesh this year. In six first-class games, he's taken eight wickets at 43.37 apiece. Gazi, 21, has 87 wickets at an average of 24 from 18 first-class games for Barisal.
Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Mahmudullah (vc), Tamim Iqbal, Junaid Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Shakib Al Hasan, Naeem Islam, Nazimuddin, Nasir Hossain, Elias Sunny, Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Abul Hasan, Shohag Gazi.
So, no Enamul Jr. or Anamul Haque. Why Abul Hasan?? Is he better than Shafiul?
Shohag Gazi is getting test cap for sure !?!
Mahmudullah or Naeem which one to be in XI?
I'm sorry but Abul Hasan is not close to the right standard yet and Shohag Gazi is not required due to Ryad and Naeem.
Two glaring omissions in selection - 1. Shafiul appears to have gone completely backwards in the last two years, and 2. Nazmul has disappeared... with Rubel a recovering injury risk.
It just feels like no planning, no development and no concept of coaching has taken place.
Oh boy... all we can hope for is the pitches turn square, West Indies bat like Sylhet Royals and Tamim and Shakib score heavily
