Default Selectors announced Bangladesh Test squad for Sri Lanka Tour

Bangladesh Test Squad for the Tour of Sri Lanka 2007

Following is the Bangladesh Test squad announced today (Monday) for the Tour of Sri Lanka 2007:


1. Mohammad Ashraful (Captain)
2. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (Vice Captain)
3. Habibul Bashar
4. Javed Omer
5. Mehrab Hossain (Jr.)
6. Shahriar Nafees Ahmed
7. Rajin Saleh
8. Shakib Al Hasan
9. Khaled Mashud
10. Shahadat Hossain Rajib
11. Syed Rasel
12. Mohammed Rafique
13. Abdur Razzak
14. Mohammad Sharif
15. Mushfiqur Rahim



Players to join the ODI Squad:

1. Aftab Ahmed
2. Tamim Iqbal
3. Tushar Imran
4. Farhad Reza
5. Mahmudullah Riyad

Surprisingly no Tushar Imran in the Test squad and Aftab again left out. Razzak takes the place of Enamul Jr. in the Test.

Only new face is Mahmudullah Riyadh in the ODI squad, he was more required in the Test side. I don't see any place for Tushar Imran and Mahmudullah in the ODI squad.

Good to see Rahim in the test squad.
so 4 fast bowlers (Mash, Rajib, Rasel and Sharif) and one specialist spinner (Rafiq). Are they going to play in the bouncy pitch?

Default Board announces new test squad for SL tour

I like this team except for the fact that Tushar gets kicked out of the test squad without playing a single game. I hope being in the ODI squad would help him to keep his self belief. And Enamul Haq should not feel too bad. He was out of cricket for too long. BCB should try to get him back in form anyway possible.

http://uk.reuters.com/article/UK_CRI...25926720070604

DHAKA, June 4 (Reuters) - Bangladesh have recalled left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak and batsman-cum-wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim in a 15-man test squad for the Sri Lanka tour later this month.

They will replace left-arm spinner Enamul Haque junior and batsman Tushar Imran, who were in the test squad in the recent home series against India.

India won the series 1-0, after the rain-hit first match ended in a draw.

Bangladesh will play three tests and three one-day matches against Sri Lanka. The test series begins in Colombo on June 25.

Aftab Ahmed, Tamim Iqbal, Tushar Imran, Farhad Reza and uncapped off-spinner-cum-batsman Mahmudullah Riyad will join the squad before the start of the one-day series.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board will name the one-day squad for the tour later.

Test squad - Mohammad Ashraful (captain), Masharafe Mortaza, Habibul Bashar, Javed Omar, Mehrab Hossain jnr, Shahriar Nafees, Rajin Saleh, Saqibul Hasan, Khaled Mashud, Shahadat Hossain, Syed Rasel, Mohammad Rafique, Abdur Razzak, Mohammad Sharif, Mushfiqur Rahim.

dont like the test team at all, Rajin actually can open innings; so whats the point of having three other openers instead of middle order batsman, when two of them are really slow ( Javed and Mehrab) and another one is out of form ( Nafis).Nafis could actually rested and obviously instead of mehrab and Javed Aftab and Tushar would be better choice.

Cant understand what they are trying to do.

Very well put. Good to have Bashar..but not the others. Mehrab is Golla clone soJO could be left out. And Nafis is 'nanga' for the time being and could use some rest

Test team:
Out of form Shahriar Nafees Ahmed is still in the team
Mohammad Sharif who is worse bowler than Taposh is still in the team
No Aftab , No Tushar Imaran
-------------------------------------
ODI team is OK

Remarks: Some one must replace Farooq. Earlier is done, the better for the test team.

I don't see the point of two wicketkeepers. Has Mushfiq been taken to keep Pilot on his toes or as a back-up middle order batsman? Considering Mehrab Jr has been picked as an opener, we should have picked Tushar Imran in case we need to replace one of the middle-order batsman which might be required as its a 3 test series.

When u will choose ur team u should think about the opposition and conditions. Its a 3 test match series, need good back up players. Why sharif is in the team? Need some quick bowler. Syed Rasel also not fit for the test team. Need a offspiner considering opposition. Why Tushar Imran is out of team? Need a solid batsman like Tushar in test team. SN should give a break to regain his form. Not a good test team at all.

Still think taking off form batsmen will not help us stabilize the middle order batting. Selectors are too scary not to chose someone from the leagues longer version top scorers. SN,Bashar,Golla,Rajin,Ash,Saqib have to prove that they can together score 300 runs minimum. I don't know how will they do it when four listed above are not in a good touch at all at present moment.

Same team with new captain.
Nothing surprising over there.
Lets see if Ash-Mash can turn around our luck.

atleast lets hope will see some improvement in fielding by better field placing by Ash.. but the real concern still is batting... seriously hope they will chose Mushi over Pilot.

Probably Mushfiq is selected as a batsman .. he played as batsman in England before. I like his batting, suitable for tests. Pilot is probably playing his last series!

Rasel and Sharif as test bowlers telling everything about our pace blowling strength!!

Didn't like the squad, esp. to see two GOLLAs (Javed, and Mehrab jr), it's hard to decide who is slower! Why do we need two wicketkeepers? Mushfiq alone could do that job. Besides Mushfiq is way better batsman than Pilot. So, no point to have Pilot in the squad. S. Nafees is not in form, but still selected knowing we are NOT playing against Zim!

May be I am wrong, but why we can't choose the top consistent performers in the 4 day league matches (one batsmen, one pacer). If they are that bad against intl teams then there is something wrong with our league system. What you guys think?

Cannot comment about ODI as we don't know who will be there and who won't be. But based on TEST team. looks like Farque is making sure that if He, Bashar, Gullu, Pilot goes to drain, they will try their best to drag Ash along with them. Feel sorry for Ash, because they didn't gave him enough resources to give a good fight. Again if Rain doesn't save us, it will over within 3 days. We all know, batting is the main bottleneck filled with out of form players. And they did little to even try to solve the problem.

Batting wise, all the ususal suspects are still there/ Lets see the batting strength in the team:


1. SN (out of form for a while)
2. Javed (He will try to fight, but does he have anything left ?)
3. Mahrab Jr. ( Kind of out of form. Showed nothing in team-a that tells me he is in form)
4. Bashar . No comment needed about his current form
5. Saki. The only hope. But too inexperienced to hope too much from him.
6. Rajin. Only batsman who is kind of in-from and we can expect some 40/50+ scores from him playing TEST match i.e. staying in the wicket not a quickfire 40/50 score.
7. Ash. Yes he will give another ODI type 50+ score and excite the fan base. But will it help to drag the game beyond 3rd day? answer a firn NO.
8. Pilot. Another player who have nothing left as a batsman.
9. Rahim, Yes he is a much better choice as batting WC. But as a pure batsman in a batting slot? Not yet... I don't feel that comfortable.
10. Sharif. He haven't shown anything so far to warrant a slot. Batting wise nothing so far.
11. Mashrafe. Only one who is over achieving as a batsman. The question is how long?
12. Rafique. There is no doubt in my mind, he is loosing his form as a btsman for a while now. He rearly crosses double digits now a days.
12. Razzak. I have doubt now a days about his batting skills.
13. Rasel/Shahadat. We shouldn't expect much from them as a batsman.

There was an opportunity to add Tushar/Aftab/Farhad/Tamim instead of some out of from players. They didn't/ And I am afraid Ash and fans will have to pay for Faruk's (and co.) stupidty.

I am not saying dropping all the out of from players frim the team. But keeping so many out -of form players (Gullu, Bashar, SN, Mehrab Jr, Pilot) in the same team is like commiting suicide even before the series started.
