With shabbir coming into the picture I think he's likely to be selected ahead of naeem assuming he shows some form with bat, I don't see raqibul or shuvagata getting a look though.

Agree spinner slots are wide open. pacer slots, well al amin should be in, taskin will make it if rubel or mash can't but otherwise they'll probably be in, zia's spot still isn't secured imo.
I agree for Tests it's likely Tamim, Shamsur and Imrul that are the favorites for the team but if Anamul can prove himself in the NCL, then he can have a good chance of knocking one of them out.

And I disagree that Shabbir will be taken ahead of Naeem. Shabbir failed to show anything in his best format, T20s and he's been inconsistent in the DPL and NCL. So unless he has a great run here, I doubt he'll make it ahead of Naeem. As a matter of fact, Marshall and Raqibul are likely to be ahead of him due to the fact that these 2 have been far more consistent in domestics compared to Shabbir.

And I feel Zia will make it since he's a pace all rounder which makes him effective for the shorter versions. So I feel he'd have a good chance
