But I actually am on the fence about including COnfiqur in the test squad. I guess at this point I am leaning more towards him being included (BUT NOT AS THE WK, WK should be someone else).

But in ODIS? Absolutely NOT! We cannot waste a spot on a CONman. We need a proper WK. And we have Anamul,Liton and Mithun waiting on the ranks. The worst of these 3, Mithun, will still be a better batsman over time IF given the same number of chances as CONfiqur. That's the part I don't understand, haven't you followed Bd Cricket over the years? Don't you remember CONfiqur being a total hack, pissing his pants vs any fast bowler? And now, you (not you in particular) are hesitant to mold someone new, who will come on stronger than CONfiqur and won't drop as many chances.
The end of Rahim will mark a new great beginning for the complacency free Bangladesh!
