I also think current playing XI+Mosharraf+Sakib, Rasel, Aftab should be the ODI squad persisted with, at least until end of this year.

But I think we still need lots of experimentation with the test squad. I sincerely believe Shahriar should be pushed down in the middle order (especially when we tour SA). In his place, we can bring back Zunaed or Tamim's older brother Nafees.

We should be also open minded to see someone like Naeem Islam in the test squad provided he can do well in A-team's tour of England.

I am hoping Sajidul Islam will be able to retain his position as the third seamer in the test team, but his position does not loook certain yet.

It's also not clear yet which one from Abdur Razzak, Enamul Haque, and Mosharraf Hossain will win the specialist spinner spot in the team.

There is still a question mark over whether Sakib Al Hasan will be able to transform his ODI form into test form.
