Default Tamim's opening partner ?

Well, I guess the experiment with this slot will go on for a while. My choice would be to give Aftab a try, although I suspect SN or even JO will be called back to fill this position.

Aftab Ahmed only in ODI
But I would love to see his brother Nafees Iqbal opening with him. If we don't try we will never find out.

Oh, forgot to mention this poll is for the ODI team only.

Nafees Iqbal for the Test team ? Worth a try.

Shariar Nafees is the man for the job. Let Aftab play as no. 6 batsmen.

for sure with the current batting problems taking a player like ehsanul who is both experienced and consistent in the FC format couldn't hurt the team much at all, certainly worth a shot.

Default Can we bring Javed back?

I voted for Javed Omar because I want to see our team play 50 overs. They will really learn something by playing all the overs. Now days the game ends on 27th and 30th over. For most of the people the game is over when Ashraful is out. I believe one of the reasons why our team went close to scoring 220,230 or 240 earlier has to do with batsmen occupying crease and playing 50 overs. As a result, they ended up scoring runs. But who can occupy beside Tamim now days? If we look at the Natwest series back in 2005 then we will be able to see that Javed and Ash did occupy the crease for long and we eventually crossed two hundred runs every gave.

The Zimbabwe series was disaster for him but he played well most of other series. He still managed to have 26 averages with all those bad performance with Zimbabwe. Its not something you can brag about but it is still better than Ashraful who also plays in the similar strike rate now days.



Year 2007, this is the year he started to make his strike rate little better. We saw him scoring 80 runs against India with 68 striking rate.

I know he is not the “talented” player we have or the technically efficient (the so called technically efficient players are scoring ducks) but he has contributed well enough to be recalled into the squad. If we are going to argue about strike rate then we should look at the strike rate of our “talented” players. They don't have exciting striking rate either. I don’t know if its going to be possible for him to comeback because BCB did not extend his contract earlier this year but if they recall him then it will be good for our team. If we find someone better then Javed then we can try that new player but for the moment I think we should bring him back.

well he's older (28) so he should be pretty mature when it comes to playing an innings, he's played a lot of domestic cricket (at least compared to most who are currently in the national team) and he's got a pretty good FC average (39.00). he's not considered to be one of the "talents" but most of the "talents" aren't performing so imo it doesn't hurt to try a player like ehsnaul haque. but apparently he's retired now, so don't know how likely he is to get a call-up.

No Imrul Kayes please. Imrul didn't do well in SA and Eng-Ire tour. And before calling him into the national squad, he needs to play FC/List A/A team/Academy team matches for three more years.

Would like to see Shezan in middle order though.

These opening partnership threads are like cancerous growths, right? Just keep coming back to haunt us. I'd say Mushfiq - the guy stuggles against quality pace with his high back lift but I think he's worth a shot since we don't have any decent options either way and Dhiman can take care care of wicket keeping duties.

If Aftab opens, we will have no solid number three. So, we need SN or JO (If SN fails horribly) as Tamim's partner.

Why not playing SN as no 3/4? He is very good with spin.

well let's see, for the moment give junaid a few consecutive matches because he didn't get that in his first few matches. if then junaid fails then we have to look at the options of national discards or A team players which basically means there's aftab, rahim, nafis iqbal and imrul still yet to be trialed.

we already know how nazimuddin, JO, SN and mehrab will go and although junaid should get a few more matches we have a reasonable idea how he'll go as well unless he pulls something out of a hat. out of the bunch that has been tried already SN is probably still looking like the best option. out of the options not already tried aftab and probably imrul are looking like the best options. but imrul hasn't been doing that well on these A tours and academy tours so it has to put some doubt in your mind as to whether he's even worth trying.

at this point i think the plan should be to give junaid maybe 4 or 5 more matches (consecutively) and if he doesn't work out give aftab ago, if then aftab doesn't work out i'd probably just go with SN becuase i don't think rahim or NI will really be the answer and imrul most likely needs more time. it really can't be helping tamim or the rest of the team that the opening partnership keeps on chopping and changing, team needs some stability.

S.Nafees is still the best option I think. Aftab could be our no.3 batsman. and down the order the way Alok is serving, he deserves a 12th man task for a while.

I think that Tamim should have no opening partner. He have a runner, at the other end who imitates a batsmen, but doesn't bat. If he gets a single, the bowler changes ends. But Tamim hits most of his rund in boundaries, so I think that he won't need a runner. I bet that he'll do a better job on his own than with some other the other muppets that have been tried.

I have always maintained that Shariar Nafees should be be given the opening slot, he has experience. you cannot use him for only a few games, and even if he fails, just dump him. He is the best choice.

Bring back Belim. He would've at least been able to give us a few starts...however slow it may have been.
