Blame Siddons and the selectors. They should have looked at the option of having 2 wicketkeepers in the National team, one for tests and one for ODIs. This works very well for SL. Pilot has retired now, they must look at training another wicketkeeper, but
he has to be gradually exposed in the National side to prove himself. Rahim has been keeping for one year. He should have never been put i n the test side, but because of Mashud's poor form in batting, he was brought in the test side.At that time, they had no other choice, but he rewarded them by making 80 runs and building a partnership of 191 with Ashraful. i blame the selectors. Since the day Mashud was dropped in SL, they should have looked at another wicketkeeper.
I feel sorry for poor Rahim. He has enthusiasm and spirit and i am sure he wants to perform well, but is out of form and should not play in tests for his own sake. He is still young, and his inclusion in the A team will give him back his confidence.
At the moment, they cannot change in midstream.
