I don't think there will be too many changes in ODI team in couple of years time. After WC 2007 some of the senior players will retire surely.

Form the looks of performance in the NatWest ODI series we need another good batsman with temperament and a fast / fast-medium bowler who is accurate in terms of line and length. And there we have it - a perfectly competitive outfit capable of winning maches every now and then once their mental aspect of the game enhanced.

It's important that Shahadat comes of age sooner than later which will make our opening bowling potent. Nazmul or Tapash will make good first change bowler where we need to field 3 pace bowlers in a match. Else Aftab is fine as 1st change bowler in dust bowls.

We need atleast couple of good knocks in every match, ideally one of them staying till the end possibly scoring a century, so that rest can try to build around him. I think the following players has shown that they can do it in their day.

Javed Omar, Habibul Bashar, Aftab Ahmed, Md Ashraful.

Nafees Iqbal and Rajin Saleh scored few half-centuries in ODIs, but never got to a stage to think that they would have transformed one of those to a ODI ton. But we would need them to show improvements in this aspect of the game. Tushar Imran still trying to make an impression and it's too early to comment on Shahriar Nafees.

I don't see too many U-19 players making national team debut before 2007.

My prediction is shortly after WC'07, Javed, Bashar, and Rafique will retire. So, my team then should look like this-

1. Shahriar Nafees/Golam Rahman/Some other lefty
2. Nafis Iqbal
3. Aftab (VC, because of his consistency)
4. Ashraful
5. Shamsu/Mushfiqur Rahim
6. Alok Kapali/Rajin
7. Khaled Mashud (C)
8. Sakib Al Hasan/Enamul/Shuvro
9. SK Rasel/Shafaq al-Zabir
10. Mashrafe
11. Shahadat

Other players to consider are:-

Tapash (needs to add some bites to his bowling)
Mohammed Sharif (If he can get his old form back)
Farhad Reza
Talha/Wascoroni Polash/Kamrul Islam/Some other tearaway
One good Offie (currently exists only in my dream)

My prediction for WC 2007:

The following players from the current team(including test/odi discards of recent past ) will stay, others will be lost:

Nafis Iqbal
Aftab Ahmed
Habibul Bashar
Alok Kapali
Khaled Masud
Mohammed Rafique
Tapash Baisya (yes, i still think he can carry on)
Enamul jr.

Other places will be filled by the following probable new players:

Farhad Reza
Golam Rahman
Shahadat Hossain
Hasanuzzaman Rozel (some of u may not agree, lets see how he goes in England)

2 new pace bowler, 1 new spinner, 1 new batsman (by tradition, 17/18 year old players at 2007) will be competing for the spot......dont think Talha,Wascoroni,Russel will get in .....if anyone get in then cut off Taposh from my current player list.........also hard to left out Shahriar Nafees from the list.....

Well....not easy to predict but this is my prediction.
