Mushfique was not included in the 1st test !!!!! Now who will anchor in the late order?
It will be hard to score 200. Selectors have given chance KM for outstanding keeping like ----- bye 4 , dropping legside sniks !!!!!

indian selectors include dhoni, whose footwork was widely criticised as a keeper. He didnt do bad at all. Bd selectors, if they cant get out of their defensive shell, we wont go anywhere. It is hard to grasp these are the guys who chose tamim in the WC and we know the outcome. Fortune favors the brave.

Good Luck for BD!
Hope a good cricket from our tigers against the disciplined and professional lions!
Mushi is not included, Golla seems wont make it through due to illness.............unfortunate...so, in BD batting line-up, both the Top and Bottom are exposed !

Mushy batting would have been crucial to securing a draw or pushing the test to the fifth day. Now we have to watch pilot in ultra defensive mode, trying to score as many dot balls as possible... in the process getting out cheaply. In my opinion, considering keeping only, the difference between pilot and mushy is not that big. Mushy has done a decent job in the one dayers so far... He has missed few catches, but he has taken some remarkable catches to make up for it. In the world cup he only had one bad game.

I thought mushfiq deserved a chance as a batsmen... his batting is much solid than some of our batsmen. In particular, since JO has fever, mushy was the ideal replacement. I guess the selector did not want to disturb the combination. I feel really bad for mushy, what does the kid have to do to get into the team?

Can't expect to too much better from management.

guys don't get emotional about mushfiq. he is on the squad, and his inclusion on the tour means selectors are serious about continuing to groom him. One day and test cricket is different and maybe they feel mushfiq needs more experience before he can keep at the Test level. Pilot's batting is in a rut no doubt but as a keeper in Test cricket he is not finished.

Good observation. I've tried mentioning this to a few people who always bash a few players, but they are not ready to understand this. The reality is, we know only what's shown on the screen, but not those millions of things that are taken care of behind the screens. We only get the taste of final product, like Coke. Not the ingredients that they leave out coz they are potentially harmful.

It's so sad. Some of our batsmen get out cheaply, trying to play dangerous shots. And yet some of our batsmen also get out cheaply, trying to play dot balls.

Anyways, I'm dissapointed that mushi didn't get into the final 11. If not as a keeper, he should be in as a batsmen. I think his temperament and technique is suited for tests.

Best of luck to Ash and co.

This raises the obvious question: if Mushfiq cannot come in purely as a batsman [ there are many, including me, who will support his inclusion as a batsman ], then either he has to rapidly improve as a keeper and keep out any other potential successor to Mashud or he does not play in tests at all. However, given the attitude we show in batting in tests, it is difficult to contemplate that.

I hope his keeping improves especially to spinners. However, if the selectors believe that Mashud is still the best keeper, then they would be correct in selecting him. After all, the best keeper must be selected in tests. In the pyjama game other considerations may come in.
gr8 observation..yes thay should include mushfiq just as a pure batsman just as indian selectors have been including both dhoni and karthick in test matches.but it seems bd selectors do not have enough faith on mushfiq either as a pure batsman or a wicket keeper batsman.probably the little chap needs to go and practice his wicket keeping skills and improve to a point where he can regain the faith of the selectors.thats what matters not what we say in this forum as they are ones who see him day in and day out!

brother, who can he replace as batsman?? He could replace Bashar only but its not possible at the moment.. He can't replace Sakib, hes an allrounder... i dont see a place for him as a specialist batsmen than a keepar.. India did it as they selected him as a batsman only.

May be it is good in both ways, as KM's performance degrades selectors will be left with no other choice. All we need is a Wall, like Inzi for Pak, Dravid for India and Shivnarine for WI. So who do you think is our wall?

well they should have kept out-of-form s. nafees out of the side and taken mushfiq just as a pure batsman. rajin and golla could have done the opening then. ind is doing the exact same thing by giving out-of-form sehwag the much needed break.

Well I am not too disappointed to see KM in the final eleven for the first test. I am sure he has to perform well or we will see Mushfiq in the second or third test. It is very natural to give your first wicketkeeper a chance before you bring in a young talented keeper like Mushfiq. Also, it is very hard for the selectors to take Mushfiq purely as a batsman as he can only replace Shahriar Nafees and then he or Rajin has to open. Noone of them opened in a longer version of the game before and it is not a good time for makeshift opener. So, I wouldn't complain too much about the team selection and enjoy the game.

It does not surprise me that Pilot has been favoured for this match.

Something tells me that his performance in it will not deviate from the trajectory his most recent outings have taken.

Mushfiq will get his chance before the end of this series.

don't really care about golla but mushi's exclusion doesn't give me much to cheer for. but since pilot is in the squad he should take this opportunity and score some runs

My perception about Sri Lankan fans are changing dramatically. They are equally arrogant compared to any other sub continent neighbors.

Here are few comments from Sri Lankan cricket forum..
