First criteria to become a selector for the national team should be to have common sense. I know Haba doesn't have it, but looks like Nannu is also there just to draw salary and Akram calls all the shots.

The game is being played in BD. So the batsmen who cant even hold the bat here (Nafees/Nazim), how can they survive against the likes of WI pacers. These 2 wont even reach double digits.

And what a theory about picking pacers who can bowl fast! This is not Aussie or NZ pitch where pacers will do wonders by bowling fast! They will infact be hammerd all over. Thats why in the NCL, Abul and Rubel remained very ordinary. Key in Test cricket is all about taking wickets, these pacers will bowl 5-6 overs, will get hammered and then they will be done, worst of all they wont contribute with bat either.

Mominul, Anamul, Soumya might be young but they are match winners unlike Nafees/Nazim.
Enam was critically needed as the third spinner, since Shakib is off form.

Shane is no head coach material and to back him we some common sense lacking selectors. And Mushy? I will be happy if he can hold on to come catches. The less we talk about his captaincy is better.

Was really looking forward to this series, but Akram, Shane just ruined it.
Golf is good, no umpire needed!
