Hate hate hate the fact that Abul got picked ahead of Nazmul. Hate the fact that Abul got picked at all. Otherwise, an ok squad for the most part.

To be honest, yes I am happy. Nazmul instead of Abul would have been better. I love the fact that Shohag Gazi has been given a chance.

^feel the same way. I know Abul has potential but if they wanted to pick potential, isn't Taskin the better option then? He's done better so far in the NCL and has the most potential out of all our pacers. Anyways, Nazmul should've been picked. He's far more ready compared to Abul obviously.

Other then the Abul selection, I'll say that the selectors made the right call.

actually ABUL has a better domestic and youth career than Taskin.as abul has played some intl matches ,the selectors have chosen a more safer option . ABUL has some pace but is a crappy bowler .

Abul averages a 43 and a SR of an 88 whereas Taskin averages 31 and SR of 61 in FC's. Abul did have the better U19 stats behind him. Overall neither should be there. I don't mind Abul being there as an understudy but dont want him playing.

Anamul&Mominul you mean? We might end up seeing them in the 2nd Test match if Nazim, SN, or Junaid fail. They'll most likely feature in the ODIs.

Abul's inclusion was a bit confusing and surprising but I dont see much difference between Shafiul/Abul/Nazmul. So i voted for happy with the team.

I have lost faith of the current selection team. Now Lota is not there to manipulate the team selection. So I won't buy their logic of crappy selection.

I am upset to see no Enamul. This guy has been performing consistently over the last few years. He deserved to be in the squad.

I dont rate Nazmul much in test cricket. Specially in context of wickets of Bangladesh. He is a bit over rated in test cricket in BC.
He dont have much pace. Basically He is a seam bowler. Hardly we play with 3 pacers. To me if we play with 2 pacers both should be pacers. A medium pacer like Nazmul can be considered only when we play with 3 pacers. Further more Wickets in this series will be dusty. I dont think medium pace seamers have much to offer in this conditions.

Win or lose... I like this type of selection... risky but bold and brave....giving chance to some of the young players.

In this approach, every new player doesn't need to be successful.... if you find just one young player who shows potential and reminds you about young Sakib, Mashrafee or Tamim (talent wise) for every 2 series...and identify who has it (i.e. excel under presssure regardless of talent), that will take us further than investing on older players with known cronic desease.

best chance for young players is for them to debut at home in conditions and pitches they are use to, if anamul and mominul don't debut in this series they'll probably end up doing it away from home in foreign conditions which really isn't the best way to debut them really.

but at least gazi is there, we need some different options for spinner other than SLAs all the time so i really hope he gets a run in this series and i hope he can do well. i hope abul can do well also but going by his domestic and international records to-date i'm not expecting much. what's scary is that shahadat is the experienced pacer he's the one that rubel and abul will be going to advice for things.

Anamul and Mominul still have their chance for the 2nd Test match and also there are 5 ODI's. So I believe they'll feature in the ODI's if not the Test matches which won't be bad.

For some reason I thought Anamul was there. But I am hoping in the 2nd Test they may bring Anamul and/or Mominul. Otherwaie it would be not so bold as I said earlier... even though there are few new faces plus few players who pretty new in test arena.

And yes it's always a good idea to bring more new faces in home games under known condition and crowd.

Shahadat is still the best test pacer we have produced, so it's not so worrying. More over we have a coach primarily for pace bowling, so it's probably the best time for bowlers with raw pace to be in the team. If you are asking for Nazmul, you are being too negative/defensive in your mindset. We need aggressive pace bowlers in test matches,that comes with all the three pacers. We have a lots of spinners to check runs. Why should we go with Nazmul in test matches.

I'm more worried about batting. One of Anamul/Mominul could have been in the team.

Nazmul might not have good pace but he is one of Bangladesh's best seam bowlers. He was the best bowler against Pakistan in the 2nd Test match because of his disciplined line and length and the movement he was getting off the pitch. So I thought he should've been there. Abul does have potential but is still very raw and a few years away from being ready.

Anyways, no point of really talking about what could've/should've happened. Whoever has been selected is selected now since we should back whoever is in the squad and hope for the best.

shahadat isn't a very good test match bowler, he might be the best BD produced but that doesn't make him a good test match bowler, up and coming pacers need strong quality guidance and i don't see how shahadat can give that to them when he hasn't established himself as a decent test match bowler himself, he hasn't learnt control and that's something the young pacers need to learn and need guidance on.

why should nazmul be there? because he has much better control, keeps more to line and length, line and lengths that batsmen have more trouble with therefore he's got a good chance of taking wickets. nazmul has only played 2 test matches, he has a 38 average which obviously isn't great but compared to most BD test pacers it's not bad at all, give him his chance at least.
