Nafees
Tamim
Aftab
Bashar
Saqib

Mashrafee
Shahadat
Tapash

If Nadif were in the squad, he could be handy when needed according to situation!

I rather see Mehrab finally pulling himself together as an oneday opener than Tamim being given a wild shot. Other players that I want see playing in all four matches are SN, Razzak, Sakib, and Mushfiq (obvious choices). On the otherhand, Rafique Mama should sit out this series and try to gather some motivation ahead of the world cup.

In the middle order (position #3, 5, and 6. #4 is reserved for Sakib), Aftab, Bash, Ash, and Tush, each should get three matches in rotation. The same should go with the four pacers, three of them in each match and each pacer should get three matches in rotation.

knowing how Bangladeshi thinktank operates, I think they will go with the best possible eleven in first two games and also maybe in the third game. Only after the series is decided, they will give other kids a chance.

Looks like team management is very cautious about Mashrafee's health this time.

With national paceman Mashrafee-bin-Mortuza playing the match solely as a batsman after being advised not to bowl by the Bangladesh team management, Mohammad Shahjada also contributed with the ball picking up a wicket.

Because you never gave me enough run with the team. I mean, when was the last time AsifTheMamaRahman have seen me playing more than two matches in a row? How many total matches did I play?

Why would I retire? Why? Why? Why?

I guess we are now more moving towards a balanced team than depending on allrounders.
Shocked to see that because of competition Rasel had to make his way for Tapash and Sharif. On the other hand, Farhad Reza was not given chances because of so many options! It's interesting but not sure how effective for Zimb and WC tour.

Backup wicket keeper also. Multi skilled players have a better chance in Dav's house. I wonder what other skill Bashar holds other than batting??

bd team now has four pacers and two spinners.masri and rajib are automatic choice.now the question is will bd opt for four pacers and a spinner or three pacers/two spinners attack. it will be interesting to see which spinner has to sit out the zim series. my guess is bd will strat with four pacers and leave rafiq.if that does not work,then one of the two new pacers will go out and rafiq will come back.

both nafees and jr. hit centuries today and tamim scored 60+.all three openers are scoring.i guess jr. is not ready to give up his spot so easily.this is the type of competition i was waiting to see among the players for a long time.

I still fail to accept that we could not arrange Ind/Pak/SL A team to come and play with us. Our players will be traveling so far back and forth, and I hope they won't complain before WC of exhaustion.

I think if nothing extraordinary happens, playing XI for the first match will be -

Shahriar Nafees
Mehrab Jr.
Aftab Ahmed
Sakib Al Hasan
Habibul Bashar
Mohammad Ashraful
Mushfiqur Rahim
Mohammad Rafiq
Mashrafee Mortaza
Abdur Razzak
Shahadat Hossain

I think our mathamota selectors might opt for Mohammad Sharif or Tapash Baisya in place of Shahadat Hossain citing their batting strength.

Since we have Sakib and mehrab Jr. we can have only one spinner (Razzak). That gives a slot for Sharif. Then we have Shahadat and Sharif, Razzak, Sakib, Mehrab Jr.
(Mash don't have to bowl.)

May be you are right. Still I sincerly hope that the management will follow the rotation policy for the pacers. It will be hot and humid in Zimbabwe and it will be the same in the West Indies, there is a good chance someone will be injured. So, it is a good idea to keep all four pacers match ready.

BTW, what is the chance that we will find out Tapash has an injury/sickness after we see him bowling some crap ? Rasel, don't loose your heart yet.

I hope not, but, yap...who knows!
Is this the end of Rasel era? ....that would be sad though.
He could be handy against SL in the WC!!
