Mushfiq comes in for Pilot. Not sure about Sakib. He should get another test but his technique is not upto the mark.

Guys bear in mind the next match is in P'sara...i.e. more pace and bounce. Do we need 2 specialist spinners?

I would give Saqib more chances... but I DO NOT want Pilot in the team anymore. He has lost all his commitments towards the team and also his confidence.

That's how we play cricket. Team management will play 2 spinners even in Waca ground of Perth.

My only concern is test wicket-keeping may be too much of a burden for young Rahim. Perhaps he needs a few games to concentrate and do justice to his batting potential and then take over both roles from Pilot.

Shakib looks like he needs to get his shot selection in order...specifically the art of letting certain balls go. I definitely see a role for him in the longer term in the test team but, as of now, I am afraid selecting him before he has sorted his approach to Test cricket out may do some long term damage to his confidence.

Mehrab hossain jnr? C'mon people. This guy will stay in 200 balls and score about 20. That doesnt help us in anyways except he might eat some deliveries up, which can affect us greatly when going for a win, batting in our second innings.

No Shakib. He is just an ODI specialist.

My line up will be

Javed Omar Belim
SN Ahmed
Rajin Saleh
Mehrab Hossain Jr
Mohammad Ashraful
Mushfiqur Rahman
Mashrafe Mortaza
Mohammad Rafiq
Mohammad Sharif
Sayed Rasel
Shahadat Hossain

No HB. No more SLA. I am tired of our SLA. Get smashed most of the time (against SL).

I say rest sakib and take in Mehrab. Rahim seemed to me that he is unable to pick murali at all (based on what I have seen in the WC). rest Razzak and pick up Sharif.

That helps. Didn't you see JO or Rajin's innings?

Default Experience of longer version cricket

It's sad that we lost rest of our 5 wickets within 30 minutes today.

Basic problem is the experience of longer version cricket. I know Javed, Shariar, Rajin, Ash they played well in the 2nd innings. I think they are capable of doing better than that especially Shariar, Rajin and Ash.

If you look at the current squad, you will find that they played hardly any first class matches for last 14-15 months. They played the recent BD-India test series, probably 13 months gap of last test series. Most of the players of this squqd participated 2/3 matches in the last domestic league.

Test match and one day cricket is completely different and you need the best of you while playing a test match. Just playing one day cricket well and without playing any first class game, you will not be able to do well. The evidence is Shakib. No doubt Sakib has done extremely well in the recent one day games. But if you look at his 1st class career, he is well experienced. I have seen Shakib in BD-India Test series, he was reluctant in his approac.What I am trying to focus, he is not prepare to play test cricket. I would use same words for Tamim. I have no doubt Tamim can play really well, just need some preparation/ experience of longer version cricket.

I am also against Pilot for the selection ahead of Mushfiq. From my point of view, Mushfiq is a well composed batsman other than Ash of the current squad. He had played several innings in the last domestic league as well. Pilot didnot play enough matches in the last season though he had the opportunity rather he was showing his anger not being selected for the world cup with so many excuses.Mushfiq should have given the chance, in fact it's not a chance, he deserves it.

That's why I support to include players in the test team who played well in the last domestic league. Players like Alok, Tushar, Ehsanul Haque (most consistent player last 2 seasons) should get the chance. They should replace the off form players as well

You are in a LALA LAND and back to the realities, we are playing test not 50 over ODIs

They went on to score fifties and against tough opposition. By following some of his last innings, I'm sure that this guy will be of no help. He comes in and scores around 20-30 in about 150-200 balls, and then blows it all away against academy sides. No point in putting him in.
Same goes to that mafizraju guy.

Strictly as myself:

Hanging onto has beens like JO, Bashar and Pilot (and Rafique's also approaching his sell-by date) is a temporary/ short sighted solution. We NEED to give guys like Aftab, Tamim, Mehrab Jr, Razzak+Enam Combo, Riyad the Test spot. They can only learn and better prepare themselves for the future.

If you want to stick to temporary measures like playing JO, Bashar and Pilot, then for crying out loud, relegate Aftab, Tamim and Mushi so that they PLAY in the NCL and Domestic tourneys. It doesnt help that they're sitting idle. (In)Conveniently it isnt cricket season now though!

I dont think you can call any player in a away series unless some injured player to be replaced.
