Selectors just call 15-20 players one week before the tour. Gathered them in to net and gym. After few days they announce the team. Why don’t we call 28-30 players including national team players? I think, we have many players with same or more potential then current BD national players like Nafis iqbal, Hannan Sarkar, Mehrab Junior, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiq Babu, Al-Shariar rokon, Manzarul Islam Rana, etc. etc. So call them all in a camp. Divide them in to two teams, 15 in each team. One with National team players and the other team with the rest of the players or mixed them within two team. Handed the teams to two BD Coach. Whatmore will care take the whole matter. Let the two team play at least 5-7 ODI and 2-4 four-day matches with each other. Try to telecast the games through TV channels, and then everybody can see who is performing and who is not. Rank their performance and select the best team. If BCB wish they could easily do this in Mirpur stadium. I know that India had already done this and that produce a great result. They got many player in pipeline to play for their national team and each of them try to give their best when the have a chance in the team. I think everybody got the idea what I am trying to say here.
Any comments?

Tried similar idea before. Didn't work. performing good in domestic matches or selection trial is not a good measure to judge players potential at international level. You have to continue with players who have already got international experience in different pitches. Few players might do well in our pitches but may completely fail in fast bouncy wicket against top quality bowlers (Faisal Hossain Dickens is a classic example, he was a hero at domestic cricket but a complete zero at international level).

Gving potential players chances in A- team, organinsing more away matches for A team (both 4 day and one day) and arranging tour matches against the international teams is a far better option.
You only play good cricket when you win/draw matches.
I am with Bangladesh, whether they win or lose .
