Should Anamul Replace Someone Now?
The NCL might be of negligible quality, however one thing that is emerging as fact is that consistent performers are likely ready to make the step up to Test level. Elias Sunny and now Sohag Gazi seem to prove that. While Jahirul Islam and Shuvogoto Hom might be cited as examples of how the NCL is deceptive, it should be noted that both Jahirul and Hom were single season hits, not consistent performers.
So the question is, should we bench SN and/or Junaid for likes of Anamul who is likely to struggle right now in the hopes that he can be a stalwart in our lineup in the near future? Or should we continue to groom him in a domestic FC league of disreputable quality and continue to groom him in non-existant A team and Academy tours?
