nsd3, your team is fine, but I want to bring Pilot at #7 after Tushar.

Why Play Aftab at #3 ???

Aftab is playing like a batsman with maturity. He is capable of playing in any position but currently he is playing very well at 6 and he can be moved to 5 if our selectors choose to drop Ash. It will not be wise to send Aftab openning or 3. Playing in those position requires some getting used to new ball. A new ball does a lot of things than a 15-20 over old ball. (BTW, Aftab's 82* inning against ZIM can not be uses to set the standard because in our pitches there is alomost nothing for pacers)

Aftab can bat better in 4-5-6 successfully now and in the future but putting in openning or in #3 will not be a good move at all.

Darn. did any of the selectors got bribed to do sabotage so that bd looses its international status? so many self destructive steps had been taken lately that it really makes me wonder.

It is really a news. So what was the problem in the last match then? Taposh in place of Chacha is a no-brainer.

although i agree with you to replace chacha with taposh or manju, i am afraid we are gonna be thrashed again against australia. we simply don't have the quality to match aussies. i don't know how much difference it will make if the players play with a fighting spirit. but that would be good to see.

I have to agree but I would change the batting order slightly. Aftab is in good form, and if he gets out early it will severely dent the confidence of the team. Also its not that easy to suddenly change positions from number 6 position to a number 3 position. I am against promoting batsmen who haven't played at least 30 odd ODIs to the crucial number 3 position regardless of how well they are doing especially in testing conditions because it can really damage the confidence of the player if things go wrong. As a friend of mine said that perhaps we should try Aftab at number 3 position in our next few home series and if he continues to do well he can make the position his own. But he certainly shouldn't be just put there coz "no one else is doing well" for his own sake and for the long term future of the team. So I would like to see the following line up:

Javed Omar
Nafis Iqbal
Tushar Imran
Habibul Bashar
Aftab Ahmed
Mohammed Ashraful
Khaled Mashud
Manzarul Islam
Mohammed Rafique
Mashrafee Mortza
Nazmul Hosain

In other words, Aftab is promoted to number 5 and will have a specialist batsman to come in after him in the form of Ashraful (who is a natural number 6 to me) and then Pilot as well. Tushar looked pretty comfortable against the pace and bounce and I thought was unlucky to get out the way he did. He got on top of the bounce but was fractionally late. He has decent technique but more importantly looks to take singles where ever he can even though he is quite capable of hitting the BIG ones. He looks like he can handle the number 3 position. Bashar should come in at 4, and play his natural game.

Rana should definitely come in for Shujon. I don't know how many of you watched the match live but as far as I am concerned Shujon is past it. He looked ragged, broken and completely out of it. He never looked like taking a wicket, and the batsmen just toyed with him. I shudder to think what some one like Hayden, or Gilchrist or Ponting or Symonds or Martyn can do to poor Shujon. Aftab on the other hand had better line and length, and he can be expected to bowl out 10 overs for 50 odd runs (or even less) and this is what we should be expecting from him as the 5th bowler. Rafique and Rana will definitely add to our bowling and our batting so we should y play both. Nazmul was off-colour yesterday but he can bowl better. So I would give him many more chances. Most importantly, our bowlers need to bowl to the plan and not change their line or length ever time they are hit for a boundary. Poor Bashar had to keep changing his field settings coz the bowlers were all over the place.

True. good exmple can be our own Khaled Masud.

Ajay Jadeja of India was a decent number six batsman. But when he was tried as a top order batsman, he failed because he just couldn't play the new ball.
