Faruque's recent interview had it's good and bad.

On one hand he is straight-forward that the domestic league isn't worth the trouble. But now he is off on a different trajectory when he describes the lack of talent. Whoa, Nellie! I thought Bangladesh was teeming with raw talent. That there was so much talent it was just crawling out of the gymkhanas and rice fields? Now we are being told by the Chief Selector that the team he selected has not enough talent and the rest are completely talentless?

The truth is he may be right. Bangladeshis in general don't put the time and energy into being good at sports. After a certain age (maybe 8?), we'd rather sit and pontificate from our PCs or from the stands than go out there on a hot day with a cricket bat or soccer ball. I am alarmed by the large number of overweight (ritimoto bhuri jhule porche) and gargantuan 12 and 13 year olds visiting the US these days. In our generation our parents didn't want us to grow up and play cricket or soccer, either, but I don't remember half the school being cardiac failure candidates!

A different point, it's a pity that no matter how dissapointed our chief selector is with the "bits and pieces" allrouders, there seems to be absolutely no chance of dropping any of them such as Sujon. I think they need to avoid 2 so-so allrounders playing in tandem.

Even India is getting their U19 wicket keeper Dinesh Kartik for the Holland cup. Bob Woolmer seems to have asked the U19 Pakistan team to train with the seniors so that he can have a good look at them. Why are we so scared to throw in a couple of youngsters who have been around for a while?

Woolmer's idea of pak U19 training with seniors is a really good one.

As we have discussed earlier there are 3/4 players who should be given a chance to get in to the Senior squad.

For champions trophy:-

Aftab Ahmed
Nafis Iqbal
Nafees Ahmed
Nazmul Hossain

Default Not too many changes likely

bangladesherkhela reported today about some possiblities of the upcoming team. it is very likely that there will not be too many changes except for opener and probably one extra pacer. hannan and shahrier are unlikely. alok is also likely to watch the games on tv. so, so far this is the outline of the team i've got:

1. jo
2. ash
3. suman
4. rajin
5. nafis iqbal
6. mushfiq
7. rana
8. rafiq
9. tapash
10. tareq
11. pilot
12. faisal
13. sujon
14. samsu (or any other extra pacer, who is likely to sit in the dressing room anyway).

i think faisal will get another chance.
