had a couple other notable misses...

Mashud: had a dissappointing year no doubt. but just like JO, bashar, and other oldguard players, he has limitations. like bashar his ODI utility is extremely doubtful. i favor the immediate inclusion of rahim even for the WC. in test matches, we need to phase rahim in, as pilot's batting is less of a liability in the longer version game.
2006 grade: D-
2007 expected: D


M Rahim: keeping was surprisingly impressive. batting not so much. still i would favor his inclusion in place of pilot because our net loss is 0 short term, and we can only gain long term. he is definitely not ready for test cricket yet.
2006 grade: C (keeping, A)
2007 expected: C
