Thought it's related, so I'm borrowing two comments from another thread:

I love the selection.....
Thank God for no Naeem Islam on the practice match

Common sense or conicident or compulsion or fluke, whatever prompted the decision, I have to applaude the output. Weldone BCB.
Armchair selectors name their XI and conduct heated selection meetings on internet. Blood young players, some experts cry. Pick the best players, regardless of age, insist others.
