you're forgetting ashraful. he was probably the most consistent, albeit his failures in the last two innings

Just think of the series where they all click together

Also, he is probably the only Bangladeshi player that can speak some English...finally someone I could understand and not feel embarrassed about...
He even had the "like...like..." going! Did he study in America or something?

who cares if the players speaks english or not. speaking english dont make a good player. happy to see shariar nafees scoring runs. hope he can keep it up. but my man of the match is khaled mashud. i think he got overlooked again today. 71 and 2 catches. and plus the last partnership with shujon is why we were able to score 250.

The mullet got him over the line. "Like" got to me aswell but at least we can understand what he's saying unlike Bashar. Although he didn't answer the question "What have you learned from this tour?"

I don't care if the guy can't even spell his name as long as he keeps producing 50's regularly mixed in with the odd 100.

Geez, if you think Bangladeshi cricketers can't speak English, you should hear some Australian rugby league players ...

What the hell? So Shahriar plays sensibly in the middle because he went to an English Medium school? No offense but that is quite possibly the dumbest argument I have heard on this board...and I have heard some doozies.

Okay I didn't realize people would start flaming on this "English" issue. I never tried to judge Abir on his English speaking skills. It has nothing to do with cricket really. It was nice to see a BD player speak decent English for a change, although the "like" mudra dosh got to me (as Razab bhai pointed out, he is probably the hi-fi type).

Let me also say some words about Shahriyar. He was originally most probable to make a debut in the English visit prior to travel there. I was really looking towards him when I came to know about him about a year ago. But.. I was also disappointed by his batting performace in the 1st two matches. He looked a decent batsman but.. unfortunately.. he didnt do anyting good to him in the beginning. Its just.. Nafees was also playing so bad that.. selectors gave him a chance to play inthe last few ODI's. And. I am really glad that he finally came through. Richard alawys ranked him very high when he was under his guidance. But.. I am sad that.. he had to come in expanse of another very very talented player. I really hope that Nafees Iqbal will recover his belief and will actually be a mainstay in our opening slot. I dont want to disrespect JO.He is probably the only consistant player in the whole series (ODI/Tests). But.. we also need to those new breeds of players who actually play to win .. not to get lost respectfully ( the habit and idealogy of most of the older players). So.. both Nafees should oneday play as openers. And we need one more good player at No, 3 positon. Hopefully.. Out of some really young talented player base.. alteast one good player will come out before next world cup.

Nonetheless.. Good luck S. Nafees. You finalyl show what you are actually capable of. Lookig forward for your show in the upcomming A team series.

I agree with Ejaj. About No 3 position I think we should try with Aftab who is doing a very good job against Zimb. in this series I dont know why he was demoted to down the order. Okk Tushar is a promising player. But he was not consistant in this series. And seems he is unable to score big innings. Till I did not find any good innings from him.

my suggestion is promote aftab at 3 and bring Alok at number 6 position.

when you have a player settled in a position, the worst thing u can do is chang his position and screw it up....when aftab played against zim @3, he played superbly, played the new ball very well and was consistent....Also when he is @6, he seems to struggle with the spinner as we saw in the Natwest....i think our middle order shoulld be like this:

3. Aftab
4. Asharaful
5. Bashar
6. Tushar/Rajin/ALok
7. Pilot
