Tushar a regular #3?! He played at #4/5 for most part of his career. As you said, he is a proven loser, and we now have much better choices in the middle order.
Nafees Iqbal did score a century in this NCL, but he remained very inconsistent for the rest of the tournament. It would be another fickle minded decision to call him for a Test series in SA based on a century on a docile Chittagong pitch.
Razzak's absence in the first Test makes Naeem's presence in the team even more important.
Robin has worked hard in domestic leagues and for the academy to establish himself as the next pacer to be groomed in the national team. As I said before, Sajidul should have been in the team, but not at Robin's expense, but at Nazmul's (who is clearly not a test material).
All in all, I have to say some members here are making more fickle minded choices than our selectors did.
