1. Scrap the dead-woods
2. Scrap those who are disinterested playing longer format. If you do not want to deliver for the sake of your country the country will not carry onto help you remain whimsical and arrogant.
3. Interview the young upcoming talents who has at least 50 first class experience and build a special squad of 25 or 30 players dedicated to red/pink format.
4. Focus on capability/recent performance rather than one off performance of foregone past.
5. Ensure a proper mix of heavy experienced, moderately experienced and young guns ready to play at any wicket, rain or shine, day and night with survival instinct for 5 days.

A total renovation is essential and now or NEVER!

Bottom line is our players aren’t good enough. For Tests it’s Tamim, Shakib, Mominul, Mushfiq, and Jayed. Hopefully Ebadat and Nayeem and Mosaddek are added to that list. But instead Imrul, Soumya, Liton, Riyad, and Mithun are picked in every XI plus randoms like Ariful, Shubashish, Rabbi, Al Amin, Shafiul, Rubel etc.

This is something BCB can tackle immediately and the root cause is Nannu who is the worst selector in Bangladesh cricket history.

Domestic cricket problems, lack of pacers and leggies is a more systemic problem. Maache bhate bangali can explain why we don’t have many decent quicks.

That being said, I still expect this squad to fight against India in the 3rd innings. Make India bowl for 130-150 overs to get the next 10 wickets.
Bangladesh: Our Dream, Our Joy, Our Team
