How about saifuddin? I'm thinking liton should play this series, unless he's in national colours. Would also like rony to get some experience here. My pacers for the squad would be saifuddin, ebadat and rony, in them you get swing (saifuddin), pace (ebadat) and line and length (rony).

Likes of Saifuddin and Rony are better suited for LOIs. My proposed team here is for the four-day match.

If Liton is sent back after the Test series in SA, he will not make it back in time for the four day match. That case, he should be in consideration for the A-team one-day matches as well.

"13 of the 16 players have senior international experience - only Jack Tector, Shane Getkate and Nathan Smith are uncapped at the top level...."

"Four of the squad have previous experience of Bangladesh, with George Dockrell, Andrew McBrine, James Shannon and Stuart Thompson all included in Ireland's squad for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 tournament."

Looks like a fairly strong team!

I'm quite happy with the squad but im happier still this is actually happening.

One of the big reasons for our slide recently was a total absence of any cricket for the fringe or underage players. Its so damn crucial we continue having tours like these, and the squad itself has a good mix of internationals who need gametime and young players as well as domestic performers. This is the first time ever we'll be touring a FM with an A side.

Really looking forward to following these games, regardless of results. Hope the guys take their chances.

I think this team is PERFECT for the 4-day match. But we will be playing only one 4-day match along with 5 OD match. Based on the need for the NT I would probably tweak the batting order a bit as well as I would like like to change couple of players for the 5 match ODI series.

Playing XI for 4-Day Match:
Shahriar Nafees
Anamul Haque [ NT needs an option for RHB/LHB combination for opening slot]
Nazmul Shanto [ We desperately need a #3 to keep mini at #4]
Saif Hasan [ This young turk should be introduced at #4, then gradually work his way up]
Naeem Islam
Nasir Hossain
Nurul Hasan
Abul Hasan
Abu Jayed Rahi
Saqlain Sajib
Jubair Hossain

Playing XI for OD Match:
Shahriar Nafees
Anamul Haque
Nazmul Shanto
Naeem Islam
Nasir Hossain
Nurul Hasan
Saifuddin
Mehedi Miraz [ He needs more one day match time ]
Abul Hasan
Ebadat Hossain
Saqlain Sajib

Considering the fact that Al-Amin hussain and Shahid would not be selected mainly due to disciplinary reasons and potential U-19 players like Afif will be busy playing age level tournament at that time, this is the best team we can field which will give valuable match time for these fringe players.

Ireland have test status now, yet they can't seem to get much Cricket. This tour may seem irrelevant, but it's not. Still, I'd be surprised if Bangladesh loses a game to Ireland. They could've also involved Zimbabwe on this tour. A triangular series would've made more sense.

Examples??? Bar Anderson all of them are below 30, and Anderson could get a couple years of test cricket yet since its the format hes most suited to.

Delaney wouldve been a good pick but hes still fairly raw.

McCollom is competing vs Tector,Terry Balbirnie and Shannon for a top order slot, unlucky for him all 4 have been in better form!

Little also is still 17, I'm sure Cricket Ireland will have something for the U19 guys (7 of whom are eligible for the next U19 WC as well IIRC) before the WC.

Most of them have played for Ireland and failed.
Look at Dockerill how many chances does he get.
Should have been more youth based.

lmao Dockrell is 25 mate. He was once one of the hottest spinners going. Has regressed certainly but the lad has proven on the world stage hes got what it takes, just needs to rediscover that. What better than a tour of Bangladesh??

Shannon last played in the 2013 WT20Q. Hes 27 now and has bossed the domestic scene, he certainly deserves a shot. Entering his prime

Sean Terry is 26, again has performed for the Wolves in the last game vs NZ.

Balbirnie is 26. Had injury issues, needs game time. Also a shot to prove his captaincy skills as he may well be next in line.

S Poynter is 26. Had his best ever season for Durham. Just hit 157no for Durham seconds after a long spell with the firsts.

McCarthy is 25, has been unreal since his debut, 1 record breaking horror show vs Afg aside.

Peter Chase is 23, has a bit of pace and talented, his issue is line and length. Perfect tour for him

Lorcan Tucker was one of the leading run scorers overall at the last U19 WC. Age 21.

John Anderson is 35 in two weeks. Performed domestically, young guys could do with a sensible head accompanying them and the guy is well in line to get a Test cap next year if he performs, which he always does at the 4 day stuff. Would I have him for ODI's? No but no harm having him along.

Jack Tector is just 21, hell Im older lol. Top batsman domestically arguably, very talented perfect shot for him and will be a big test.

Shane Getkate is 25, great performances years back at u19 level, captained the wolves prior, performed domestically with ball.

Mulder is 22. Has immense potential and has ripped apart many associate sides. But as young leggies are he needs time, experience games. Perfect for him as well

Simi Singh performed at A and domestic level, not done it yet at senior but has only had about 2 or 3 games. Age 30

Nathan Smith is 22, also done well domestically. Not capped yet.

Stuart Thompson is 26. Was fantastic in the t20 vs Afghans in March, not done it in ODIs though but has potential for sure.

McBrine is 24, again a promising bowling all rounder.

So thats an average age of


378 years divided by 16 players is an average age of 23.6. How much more youth do you need lol. Take out Dockrell (130 odd caps) Balbirnie and Thompson I reckon youve got under or about 50 senior caps in that side. Really dont see any arguments against that selection.

Not a chance. BCB cant even be bothered to arrange A team matches and you want a live broadcast. Might as well ask for DRS and a pony.

lol man I aint expecting a commentary team or broadcast or anything, but boards nowadays tend to have static cameras at each end of a wicket or 1 end and they can sometimes be used for streaming as well.

BCB management has regressed alarmingly in the past couple of years. I think their focus is solely on BPL. **** hasn't hit the fan since the team is winning games, but that is papering over the massive infrastructural gaps. At this rate we will be exposed sooner rather than later.
