not complaining about trying out new players...this is T20 cricket, so no harm bringing some fresh blood. I was merely replying to those who kept hinting Shabbir and co would have been better than players like Naeem and Riyad. I think Mominul should focus on test and ODI. Shamsur is still our most likely partner with Tamim for the WC... so better give him some more chances... I was impressed with Al Amin's aggression. Hope he can improve through DPl and come back strong.
Zia... again, we only have slot for one seam allrounder for home tournaments... and thats Mash when he is fit... In form or not. So Zia has no chance of making the squad even as a bowler and slogger.... Opener? I would rather have Gazi open than Zia
