Default A plea to the BCB president

We have praised the selector's decision to keep Ashfool out of the national team - a good decision taken by the Akram & Co., though it should have taken a long ago.

Now, it's time for our new BCB president to take a bold decision to sack the "three idiots" for their "Abul" affairs! It seems to me that these three posses the same thought process as does the likes of Abuls.

The three, Akram, Bashar, Nannu were amongst the best cricketers during their era and we should be thankful to them for their contributions to Bangladesh cricket.

But, in regards to the selection of national team, they seem clueless and lack cricket wisdom of modern era. They can't even realise that those days are over when they were happy just be a part of the national team scoring at an average of twenty odd runs!!

I see a significant lack of fairness in their selection process as well.
They have selected Nafees on the basis of his last test performance but left out Nazmul!! Selected Zunaid on one domestic match performance, but left out Mominul and Anamul who have been consistent performers for the last few years in the domestic cricket!!!

They don't have any (or weak) strategic plans against a particular opposition. When you know for fact that your pacers are worthless, you still pick two pacers and pick only one specialist spinner while the spinners are on top form. You left out Sunny who picked up seven wickets on his debut, or Enamul Jr. who is on top form of his life!

They also lack visions. No future goal/s is set or plans in place to reach their goal/s. They pick a player for one series, and then drop him for the next - no chance to correct or prove him; or, keep playing a particular player/s series after series regardless his continuous below par performance (i.e., Mullah - what he has done to be in the team lately?).

We are celebrating our twelfth anniversary of test cricket when our test status is questioned and rightly so with a solitary win. To avoid further humiliation, BCB needs to act fast by take necessary steps - improving our domestic cricket structures, open pace academy like MRF, making sporting wickets, arrange longer version league year around etc.

But, the first step should be replacing the current selector’s panel with a dynamic and visionary one. Act fast or lose your test status - choice is yours!
