nah not too early for raqbiul to be in a national one-day squad, doesn't have to play, just being there should be a helpful experience for him, test squad on the other hand he does need more time. as for rahim imo he's had enough chances in ODIs, dhiman has done a really good job in NCL one-day cricket and his style suits one-dayers much more than rahim's does. i'm not expecting dhiman to be in the team or even the squad and the same goes for raqibul, but i think they're ready to be in the one-day squad. naeem islam is another player who is worth consideration.
i won't be disappointed if raqibul doesn't get picked for the squad because yeah it's true he hasn't played that much cricket but he's in good form and is one of the best one-day batsmen in bangaldesh atm which is why i think he deserves a place if he gets one.
