I remember that Selectors mentioned about Shuvo during Sri Lankan Tour of Bangladesh. he wasn't selected because there wasn't anybody to be dropped.

another thing to note: Form is temporary, class is permanent. Usually what happens is the the Players enjoy amazing form but by the time they arrive at the national team, the form deteriorates and we see their average class and then the truth is exposed! That player simply doesn't belong with the elite teams...

if Shuvo is to come most probably he will replace Mehrab Hossain Jr., though unlikely since Mehrab has decent Test Experience under his belt. but for Other Formats, Mehrab will definitely be replaced and Shuvo will likely get his long awaited call.

Ths is EXCELLENT stuff from selectors...they are raising the bar for National Team entry => and this is due to decent cricketers rising to the occassion making it tough for players to enter even with top class performance whereas three years ago or so even a First Class Century was enough to give you a free ticket to an overseas tour. Sensible stuff from Selectors...I like
