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.
good post, agree with everything you said. test squad is still really uncertain at this point, i'd like to see junaid and tamim opening with SN down the order like you said. sajidul i'd like to see in the test squad but wouldn't mind seeing him in the one-day squad either assuming rasel comes back and we struggle with finding a 3rd pacer (still not sure about shahadat and reza yet).

in regards to spinners, well enamul lost his contract with the BCB so i'm not sure how likely he is to get into the test squad, actually i'm not even sure who they're looking at as spinners for that squad, they might even be thinking about riyad and kapali.
