People making a big deal about SA pacers(As they are top ranked in the world and should be), I think Imran Tahir and his supporting spinner is more than good enough to trouble Bangladesh batsmen. Tough tour coming ahead for certain.

Exclusion of Nasir is baffling to me. he should have been given a longer run.

শ্লোগানে শ্লোগানে সৌম্য বাদ - 'Soumya out' chants in Mirpur stadium

Soumya opens up about the constant dissatisfaction of the audience because of his selection. He said he's trying to improve. He knows the disappointments. However he also added that nowadays he's ignoring social media sites aka tweeter, fb (probably to ignore the radical racist commentators). Overall he looked unhappy there.

This is somewhat true. He last played a test match in 2015. All signs of him hanging up the boots in the longer format.

How many chances is Rubel going to get as a Test bowler?

Team management should look for new and fresh faces; not keep on recycling players who have failed in the format.

I seriously don't get the point of this tour. We saw what happened when Bangladesh toured New Zealand. A home series against South Africa would've made more sense. I'm not surprised Shakib backed away because he knows the team stands no chance especially with Mushy in charge. It's a waste of time. South Africa should rest some of their players if you ask me because the result will still be in their favour.

Well, if he plays at No. 3, then he will repeat the same story that he is an opening batsman and he can't play at No. 3. As if he made couple of double tons opening the innings. This guy made ONLY 7 50+ innings out of 58 he played.

And if he opens with Tamim, he will say he didn't open for a long time and that hampered his flow or something.

No matter what he will be making few ducks.

If SN continues with his form from last two-three seasons, one from Soumya and Imrul should be chopped out to make space for him in the Test squad for the SL series.

SN, Ash, Hom, Riyad, Rubel are tried and tested failures. we should rather invest in guys under 25 only among those outside the core team.

Steyn and philander are currently unfit aren't they? Think they were meant to play some domestic matches but have said they are unfit so they may not be fit for the tour...

SN = Home track bully so his selection may work as "horses for courses" only for SL series at home. He is our Usman Khawaja who only plays well at home.
Ash = We have moved passed his era of playing for respectability. Any talk about him is entirely based on past glory.
Hom = He should not have been selected for NT in the first place, Doesn't offer anything in any department.
Riyad = Well, He's a poor Test player in home condition.
Rubel = He might get a nod in ODI series depending on his form at that time.

You shouldn't discriminate on age as that will get the test team nowhere. Rather discriminate on merit. Players in the 30s have been invaluable in test sides all over the world.

You can't keep on bringing raw players into test cricket and hope they can flourish, test cricket is a sport for older and more well rounded players. We should invest in players young and old, upcoming talents such as Liton should get streamlined into the team in-place of ODI hacks such as Sabbir Rahman and Soumya Sarkar. We can't go guns blazing all the time and sport a fiery lineup, or else we will be bundled out for 100 one day and score 500 the next. We need a lineup with consistency.

Test players should be like wine, as they age they get better and better, if we have a young test team, we will suffer losses for years to come, unless with prepare dust bowls at home and spin our way to victory. That being said, we should give Shahriar Nafees a definite go into the side. You look at Australian Players such as Chris Rogers, he played until he was 33-38 and he got better and better with time, but decided to give up the boots to blood young generation of players. The problem is unlike Australia, Bangladesh does not have a suitable young generation to fall back on and if we do introduce raw and young players we will inevitably be ****.

All in all we have to blood player such as Mosaddek and Liton as they have the X-Factor within them and it is clear that they are above the domestic standards.Shahriar Nafees is a special case, he has scored runs heavily and has a test hundred against a legendary Australian Side to back up his selection. Shahriar Nafees has had a consistent run in the NCL for 2-3 years now:

He averaged 40 in 2016/17
He averaged 79.44 in 15/16
He averaged 59.08 in 14/15

He definitely deserves a run in the current test side. We should'nt discriminate based on age, but rather if we discriminate based on merit, the test side could of gone a long way.

Future Test Side I would like to see

1.Tamim Iqbal
2.Liton Das
3.Mominul Haque
4.Shahriar Nafees
5.Mushfiqur Rahim
6.Mosaddek Hossain
7.Shakib Al Hasan
8.Mehedi
9.Mo Shahid
10.MFizz
11.Abu Jayed Rahi

Reserve: Abdul Mazid, Naeem Islam, Abu Jayed

Your comment for SN is invalid, technically all our players bar Shakib and Tamim are home track bully in tests since we barely play abroad, so that basically makes no sense.

Not a suprise dropped after considerable failures for years,his colour played a strong reason for why he was picked for so long.
Is Devilliers available?

Looks like Steyn, philander and Morris will all be out, philander and Morris are definitely out for the tests (Morris back for t20 maybe) they are saying Steyn has no comeback timeline but may be looking at November for the t20 global. 21 year old lungi ngidi may make a return in the series (only played 7 FC matches, 17 list A), I'm assuming in the shorter formats.

Haven't heard anything about de villiers but am presuming he is available...

Duminy was talented, he just gave away his wickets in tests

He could bowl and he was a good fielder

Who do you think he kept out of the test team?

Thumbs down Test avg against SA

The test average of our batsmen against SA:

Mullah: 51.00
Liton: 26.50
Mushy: 23.80
Momin: 23.00
Tamim: 16.60
Imrul: 13.50
SS: NA
Sabbir: NA

Not a single player has 30+ avg let alone 40+ except Mullah. We need a vast improvement on this stat.
