03.Mominul Haque
04.Naeem Islam
05.Shakib Al Hasan

ODI line-up for 2013

01.Tamim Iqbal
02.Anamul Haque
03.Mominul Haque
04.Shakib Al Hasan
05.Nasir Hossain

08.Mashrafe Mortaza

10.Abdur Razzak

If we play to our ideal strength in 2013 against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Ireland and New Zealand, then they will have a serious tough time in winning a series against us at least in ODIs. Mominul with his left armers can be beneficial for us if we use him full-time.
concerns: even though shakib is there batting to #8 means we are taking a bowler less than we could and BD need all the bowling firepower they can take in tests. also riyad batting at #7 in ODIs, we need to find a better option and i'd be willing to try shuvagata there since he bowls a bit to.

apart from those concerns i think the teams you posted are spot on.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
