Thanks pilot fan... Imrul Kayes and Shamsur Rahman should have been part of the main squad! A good selection nonetheless.

BTW- No Enamul Haque Jnr?!!!

A team for England is Bhua. Tamim/Sakib/Mushi/Nazim shouldn't have been there. Dhiman and a few other guys should have got the chance to play.

Inclusion of Tamim has no reason.

National team is more or less the same as it was. Strangely, Nazim got a preference over Junaid. Both the teams are same but one change in the Asia cup reserve bench, doesn't make any sense.

Banfan, maybe this might help you understand the reasons behind the inclusion of the likes of Tamims and Shakibs:

We should send the strongest squad available barring three or four 'senior' national players. This would be my squad:

1. Tamim
2. Imrul
3. Junaid
4. Rokibul
5. Naeem
6. Rajin
7. Alok
8. Shakib
9. Mushfiq
10. Dhiman (?)
11. Aftab
12. Shahadat
13. Sajid
14. Dolar
15. Talha

16. Enam

If we are only allowed to send 15 players then Enam makes the cut and one of the bats drops out.

All the squads are crap! Alok deserved a chance ahead of Mehrab Jr. Aftab survives, while Junaid and Dhiman are dropped! Mushfiq is brought in as the only keeper prematurely again and I guess he'll be made to bat at no. 7 where he'll be out for ducks and drop sitters as keeper, he couldve been picked as a batsman while Dhiman would keep and bat at no. 7! Nazimuddin and Roquibul Hasan remain despite regularly failing to get picked for the final XI. And on what basis has Dolar been picked? His academy performances were below par, didnt hear anything about him in the Premier League. Looks like the management and Siddons have a grudge against poor Rasel, whatever opportunity they get they avoid Rasel. And half the national team is sent to play for the 'A' team, yes they will probably win most of the matches, but is that what the 'A' team should be about? It is there for a team to develop its second tier players.

top post, pretty much said it all really. the teams and players are all over the place. rahim has been re-selected for the national team only to be dropped again to go on an A tour. tamim and shakib possibly the 2 best national players at the current time are also being sent on one of the A tours. they must be using the A tour in england as a chance to give some of the national players extra experience in those conditions, problem with that is it means a handful of other players won't get that chance who could have really used it to help improve BD's depth.

Targeting junior stars of the nat'l team to give exposure in English condition goes in line with the current vision: "building core team players looking at the future".

Very very valid question! ...and a few of the regular posters were crying for the heads of Athar, Faruq and co. Perhaps, they feel much more comfortable now that Tigermama and Co. are at the helm.

Mushfiq should have served some more time. Dollar can't be better than Rasel.

I wonder what our seam will comprise of, shahadat still needs a lot of improvement in One day bowling, particularly the first 10 overs, rather than at the death.

If Dolar is given a chance, I hope he has something that makes him dangerous I doubt his pace is anything above 85+mph, but I hope he has some swing, or at the least a good stock of slower balls.

Does anyone have the dates of the Ireland and England academy tours.

The thread title is a bit confusing. It should have the tour name.

Thanks for the info btw.

To be honest this conveniant, let him rest and get back on for the academy tours, long term good for BD cricket, bad for short term.

And I hope that stupid bolod aftab raise his standards.

Other than omission of Rasel and inclusion of Mushy I have no complain. Remember I am the biggest fan of Mushy, but I think we should have continued with Dhiman and Mushy should feel the heat to regain his position.

Enamul Jr. is already playing in England. He will get a good understanding of the English condition at the end of the season.

I guess selectors are only considering him for Tests and that's why left him out of the squads.

Rasel is still struggling with his ankle injury and Nazmul got groin injury, and thus both are not considered for the national team.

Only complain I have about team selection is Nasir Hossain should have been picked for the Ireland leg of the A-team tour, ahead of Nadif Chowdhury. Nadif has done too little to justify his selection in the A-team.

Most dissappointed in Dhiman being out of the fold. He was kicked out for no reason. Tamim should not have been in the A team by any means. He is the most consistent batsman rite now.
Inclusion of Aftab and Nadif as the respective levels is totally illogical
