It's nice to see Shohag in the team. I hope that's the start of a new era in Bangladesh cricket.

What does Abul Hasan still do in the team? What type of connections does he have to win a test place after consecutive failures?

How is Abul getting through again?

Most likely XI:
Tamim
Nazim
Junaid
Naeem
Shakib
Mushfiqur
Mahmudullah
Nasir
Sunny
Shahadat
Rubel

Sad to see no Anamul/Mominul. I'd take a risk by dropping Nazim and debuting Shohag.

Bomi ashlo ey squad dekhe...perhaps the most terrible selection I've seen a while. I think the 11 left out of the pre-lim squad could beat this team by an innings. The only good news is that this is a squad for the First Test only. Hopefully the failures will be benched for the guys that perform out of the 11 who were left out.

As much as I doubt Nazim, I guess he *deserved* to be in the XV.
Abul Hasan over Nazmul? Why not Tapash?
Mahmudullah over Mominul and Anamul? OK perhaps expected.

I'm not terribly upset to see JS and SN, but I think they are limited players and we should have brought in Anamul and Mominul in at their expense.

Gazi is the only pseudo-surprise pick I can't argue against, although I would have selected Jr over him.

So that's a debut for Abul and Sohag.

Sohel should be happy. Nazza! is in.

Where is Enamul, jr?

Seems like Nazim, Abul and Sunny will sit out.
They are definitely playing Shohag Gazi.

Tamim
Zunaed
SN
Shakib
Riyad
Nasir
Naeem
Rahim
Gazi
Rubel
SRK

I reckhon they should play 2 out of Riyad/Nasir/Naeem and and get Sunny in.
At current form, Naeem is a must.
So the battle should be between Riyad/Nasir.
Nasir might be the unlucky one since the other is VC.

So, there you go, replace Nasir with Sunny and you have your XI for the first test.

Doc, this is just the squad for the 1st Test as opposed to the entire series (of 2) right?

Naah. I think Sunny is an automatic pick. If there is a fight for a place if at all, IMO, it will be between Nazimuddin/SN/Gazi.

Could have taken one of Anamul, Mominul instead of SN..... Nayeem should bat at the top... Rest looks fine.

is it just me or they are rushing with Rubel at the moment. Playing him for a test series right after recovering from a long injury isnt something i would call ideal.
and Junayed... 1 ton and he is in.... thats it.

Frightened to even think of watching the duo of Abul and Shahadat bowling for us. I think watching Sword of Tipu Sultan would be a lesser punishment.

Naeem deservedly got his chance after scoring runs... but feeling really sorry for Enamul Hq junior and Nazmul hossain who must feel short changed yet again.

The current selection committee is too much defensive. I still miss the committee of Faruk and Athar.

Not impressed with SN and Nazimuddin being in the team. Last test performance cannot be counted if you play test after one year.

What the heck Abul Hasan is doing in the team? Now I believe he has the strongest lobbying.

If Riyad plays in the first test and fails he must be dropped in the second test. This should be his last chance.

Junaid should partner with Tamim in the opening slot.

Most probably Shahadat and Rubel will take the new ball.

I would like to see Shohag playing in the first test. He cannot do worse than others. But if he is a big match performer then he will grab the chance to impress.

Someone please remind me why the HELL Abul is in the squad and Enamul isn't? The guy fails in T20, has a below par NCL, and he's still getting included in the national squad? Even when he's far below the pecking order compared to bowlers like Alauddin Babu etc. let alone Enamul?

Anyways, this seems to be an OK XI from the squad:

1. Tamim
2. Junaid
3. Naeem
4. Shakib
5. Mushfiqur+
6. Mahmudullah
7. Nasir
8. Gazi
9. Sunny
10. Rubel
11. Shahadat

Decent batting and bowling depth, on paper.

Abul has played only 6 FC matches and taken only 8 wickets. Nothing impressive at all. His FC average is 43.37 and SR is 88.6.

If they could try Abul then why not Al Amin. Al Amin has played 10 FC matches and taken 40 wickets averaging 16.95 and at a SR of 34.5.

Akram and co. don't have minimum sense. They should go NOW. Enough is enough.

wow horrible selection. abul? plus nazim, SN and junaid? i hope naeem gets in the XI. nazim i can understand that want to give him a few more tries (even though i disagree with it) but having both SN and junaid in there isn't needed. 4 of the spots in the squad are taken up by top 3 batsmen and it's a hime test match where if injury happens someone can be called in as a replacement, they should have decided on their top 3 and taken just them, unless SN is being looked at as a middle order option but then there's already nasir, shakib, naeem, riyad and mushy so i don't see how he'd get into the XI as a middle order bat.

would have been very much worth selecting at least one of anamul or mominul even if they didn't get to play.

i hope gazi gets his debut but i seriously hope it isn't at the expense of sunny. abul, rubel and shahadat all being there is wrong to. 3 quicks there but all are wayward. needed nazmul there for sure, other good pacer picks would have been kazi kamrul, shafiul, al amin, abu jayed, even alauddin.

i think junaid should bat 1st drop, that's where he's done his best work in test cricket, nazim should open for because that's where they've placed him so far in his test career and since he is in the squad they should give him the chance in that same position so we can get a greater view of his ability there. atm nazim has had some good scores opening and some bad scores, this test or this series if he gets more matches after the first test will give a greater insight as to whether he can perform there, if he can't then it's time for anamul no questions.

riyad is another worry but while he's VC he won't get dropped.
