By your own admission, he scored two ducks out of three . I am not sure how you can say his keeping was OK. He dropped two catches in the final match. His keeping has never been OK. He still scores 6 which presumably means better than average. When does someone get 1 or 2 ?
We all like Mushfiq and he would make my side automatically as a batsman in tests. Because of his batting he will keep his wk spot in ODI's as well. But let's be honest, he had a bad ODI series. There is no other way to put it.
Rasel was the outstanding Bangladeshi player of the tournament. He usually is. I have always been surprised by the inventive phrases used by arbitrary selectors to keep him [ and Aftab ] out of the test team.
