Default selectors got it right.

whether we get bundled out for 50 or the boys go on to make us proud, i think the selectors have done a good job picking the squad. only possible flaw is the inclusion of bashar, but he's more likely than rajin to score big, IMO.

1 - tamim
2 - junaid
3 - bashar
4 - ash
5 - SN
6 - aftab
7 - mushy
8 - mash
9 - sajid
10 - shahadat
11 - enam

X - rajin

we've got our equal best fielder as the 12th man, so all in all its the best we could have hoped for. good luck to all 12 of them!

Tamim is quite good, especially in the outfield.

the one in 2000 , versus India Aminul Islam made 145,

it looks to me, Bangladesh is a dangerous team to play in thier home turf, even for Australlia and especially when we are underestimated!

2 new (relatively) openers, SN in the middle order, Bashar to follow, debutant 3rd bowler.... a lot happening in selection I see...

but I would like to see what this unorthodox selection yields, as we clearly saw what our orthodox selection brought for us in the ODIs....

I dont think the selectors have got it right, nafees and tamim should have opened, plus we need more than one or two spinners in the match, where is razzak?

Spot on. That's exactly what the selectors have been saying, especially AK to the deshi press.

Aftab, Ash, Tamim and Zunaed in the team. Farhad and Shakib in the reserves. Abul Bashar and Alok Kapali in the NCL.

HaBa and Abir are bad fielders.

I am not too confident about Junaed's inclusion. He didn't look very comfortable in the ODI series. I would have picked Rajin and let SN/TI open.

I mean it to be an "ocassional" fifth bowler. You need one or two to give a break thru in the longer version of cricket.
