I like Imrul as well. But I like Soumya's overall ceiling. As for the very next ODI, it should be Liton who gets the chance.

I think we should just stick with Soumya. He will either hit out or get out, so no much harm even in the worst case.

It's really a shame that for the last decade or so, we can't find a partner for Tamim. One has to stand back and also wonder, what makes the big four stand out? Is it that they have a different set of work ethic? Talent alone won't keep you around international cricket for this long. Wtf are the juniors doing during training?

If we had a strong lower order then I would have suggested Tamim-Mushy to open.

might be worth trying this line up and giving it sometime before WC:

1 tamim
2 liton/soumya
3 shanto
4 mosaddek
5 shakib
6 mushy
7 riyad

TBH riyad and mushy are probably the best finishers BD have atm, mosaddek imo has to be at 3 or 4 or he isn’t in the xi, shanto might be able to open but he’s the closest thing BD has to a specialist no 3 who’s got anywhere near the national team. Shakib is not a great finisher which is why I placed him above mushy and riyad.

Only other batsman I might want to see before World Cup who isn’t in the squad right now might be zakir if he impresses in the A team, I’m not saying discard sabbir but we have no choice but to try other line ups at this point, he hasn’t been firing and other options need to be worked out before WC rolls around.

Hopefully I didn’t miss anybody, apologise if I did.

How good is Anamul in domestic? What does he average to get called up this often?

There was a time when people used to say who would partner SN Ahmed. By the time Tamim arrived on scene, SN became a walking wicket.

May be by the time we find a partner for Tamim, he will be about to retire.

May be we will never have two good openers playing together.

Our success in ODI cricket is artificial and on the back of senior cricketers. Our domestic cricket did not improve as much as the national team did. The seniors are where they are after years of mediocre performances but they were lucky that we were at no 10 when they started (with low expectstion from fans). These guys developed the hard way which by playing and struggling against the best overseas. The younger players right now do not have that luxury like mushfiq or ryad had in their early days. The current situation demands that they walk into the side and perform. This would only happen when our domestic cricket standard actually improves. More investments is needed in raising the standard of DPL, with more foreign fast bowlers playing for the clubs, harder pitches and competitive teams. That would perhaps give enough foundation to a youngster coming into the side.

I can't believe that there can be a call for Imrul solely based on his opening partnership with TIK. Even if that's the case, should we drop Imrul when Tamim is injured (based on the same partnership logic)?

By 2019 WC, he will be over 32 and his S/R will fall under 60. He shouldn't be mentioned for any format of cricket.

SS is way better. We shouldn't have tried him in Test. It's high time that we sticked to some players meant for certain formats only.

absolutely not.

we still have a year left. groom litton/shanto. these are our future. invest in them rather than going back to imrul.

or maybe have an x factor like maruf/arifur at the opening. we need to be creative and out think out of the box.

This! The truth has been spoken. Imrul falls into that category of the big 4 +(short format mahmudullah). But somehow he couldn't make as big of an impact maybe because he was in and out of the squad so frequently.

Imrul was always a stop-gap solution and he will remain just that. He never inspired the confidence amongst people and selectors to consistently back him therefore I do not see him as being the solution to our opening woes. If he gets picked for the WC, then it will be because we did not fill that gap with youngsters like Anamul/Liton/Shanto/Soumya and had to use a stop-gap like himself.
