I sincerely hope Taskin has sufficiently recovered from his back injury for this tour.
Shanto should be in the ODI senior team. And given a long run. In case he doesn't pan out, the A team should used to figure out who Shanto's replacement should be as a last minute WC19 squad member. Whether Momin, Soumya, Sabbir, or someone else.

But I think Shanto is too good to struggle especially given we play a lot of games against weak sides (5 more vs WI, 1 vs an Associate, 3 vs ZIM, 2 vs AFG, 4 vs IRE). In fact, we only play 3 ODIs against a good team (in NZ) before the WC. Which is good. 2006 we played minnows and had a good WC in 07. 2014 we blasted ZIM and then had a good 2015 WC.

We need the confidence.
