plus, why play mashrafee? ok give shahadat a game, but why play mashrafee? so he can twist his 3rd knee?
razzak and rafiq can play, since spinners have low injury risk, but then again, rafiq is injured isn't he.
i stick by my post.
I was going to comment on this after the 15 men squad announcement. However, I feel I need to support al Furqaan on this one.
Not only I would bench Mashrafe but also rafiq and SN. I would allow Rasel, Shahadat to open and Taposh to be the third pacer. Depending on the 15 men roster I would open with Tamim and Rajin or Mehrab Jr. and tamim or whoever is included as an opener.
This only for the Tri-series and to answer some questions. If Pilot and Mushi both are included then both play.
As for the warmup matches against NZ and Canada we go with the best 11.
