Three left-arm spinners in 14-man squad

Bangladesh's most-capped cricketer, Mohammad Ashraful, has been omitted from the Test squad for the forthcoming series against England, after failing to convince the selectors that he is in the right frame of mind to resume his international career.

Ashraful, 25, missed last week's ODI series in a bid to recapture his form following a poor tour of New Zealand, but in consecutive first-class matches for Dhaka Division, he made 21 runs in four innings, including three ducks.

His final chance to impress the selectors came during his captaincy stint for Bangladesh A against England at Chittagong, but having managed just 1 in the first innings, he was bowled by Amjal Shahzad for 30 on the third and final morning of the match.

Ashraful has played in 53 of Bangladesh's 64 Tests to date, having made his mark with a debut century against Sri Lanka in November 2001, when he was just 16 years old. However, he has never yet featured in a home Test against England, having been dropped for the 2003 series, again due to a loss of form.

The Bangladesh selectors have named a 14-man squad which includes the centurion from the warm-up match, Raqibul Hasan, as well as no fewer than three left-arm spinners - the captain Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak and Enamul Haque Jr - in response to Kevin Pietersen's much-publicised problems against that style of bowling.

Ironically, Pietersen fell to Ashraful's legspin for 20 on the final afternoon of the tour match.

Bangladesh squad Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Aftab Ahmed, Mahmudullah, Raqibul Hasan, Naeem Islam, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Abdur Razzak, Enamul Haque Jr, Shahadat Hossain.

Bangladesh have potential to Test tourists, says Athers



We expected no less than a 3-0 one-day scoreline to England and that's what transpired, with the tourists rounding matters off with a resounding victory in Chittagong.

In the grand scheme of things this result won't reverberate around the game.

But equally people would be wrong to be dismissive and say 'England have only beaten Bangladesh'.

The home side had their moments in all three games - the problem was there simply weren't enough of them.

Bangladesh are a young squad and at times their inexperience and naivety stopped them taking advantage when they could have exploited a weakness.

I've no doubt that will change with time and as the likes of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan develop.

There is an undoubted passion for cricket in Bangladesh, an enthusiasm and level of interest that can only bode well for the future.

With such fervour amongst a population of upwards of 150 million, there should be no shortage of talent to choose from in the years ahead.

ধন্যবাদ ওবায়েদ ভাই। কি চমৎকার দেখালেন!

জুনায়েদের অন্তর্ভূক্তি বোধকরি ব্যাকআপ ব্যাটসম্যান হিসেবে। সত্যিকারের কোয়ালিটি স্লো লেফট আর্ম বোলার এনামুলের অন্তর্ভুক্তি কিছুটা বিস্ময়করই বটে! আশাকরি সেটিও ব্যাকআপ হিসেবে ধরা হয়েছে। নাহয় সত্যিকারের কোয়ালিটি স্লো লেফট আর্ম বোলারের নিরন্তর লং হপ ডেলিভারী নিদারুণ বেদনার জন্ম দিবে।

এবার ইংলিশ লোথা খোকাদের নাকের পানি চোখের পানি এক করার পালা।

It's good to see enamul in the squad. He must have been feeling pretty low over the last year or so especially have gone to play for Maharashtra and struggling to take wickets there.

Since then, he's been more of a regular (even playing a few ODIs) and has started bowling with real confidence. I hope now he can start living up to his true potential.

There's a chance that all 3 spinners will play (shakib, razzak and enamul) but I think it's more likely that only two of these will play and mahmudullah (and possibly naeem too) will support them. If picking only 2, my guess is enamul will get the nod to partner shakib ahead of razzak

It might be tempting to call up shuvo, but when we're playing England and with the abundance of SLAs we have, surely it's wiser not to call up a rookie.

Bangladesh will have to play out of their skins, but I think a win is possible...

I actually fancy a win for Bangladesh, IF BD can set a target of 250+ in the 4th innings.
I honestly believe our attack at this moment is capable of scalping 20 British[and Irish, South African and Caribbean] wickets. But in order to record a win, we need at least 2 big innings in the game, and a total of minimum 650.

Also, let's not forget about shahadat.

Sure, he's not half as fast as he thinks he is, is absurdly expensive in ODIs and his line and length often goes awry. But when he gets his tale up and bowls with agression he's our most potent seamer.

We all (quite rightly) extol the virtues of Mashrafe. But for all his heroics, Mash has never taken a test 5-fer. Shahadat has done this 3 times and against decent sides too.

Don't get me wrong, I think an in-form Mashrafe is a blessing for BD, I'm just pointing out that Shahadat can be a real threat too...

shuvo may be a rookie but if he is an effective rookie, than i wud prefer him over enamul, whose experience has counted for very little when it comes to taking wickets.

With Aftab, Imrul, Enamul and Razzak, I don't know how Bangladesh can even think about a decent score. This is the most ridiculous squad recently been selected in test. You want the best 11, not the best 11 whom selectors wish and pray could score so that they can justify their inclusions. Ask yourself, is this the best 11 we have? Forget about rookie, all the players are rookies in BD team. I will have 4 rookies than Razzak's 80 average in test, Enamul's no wicket stats in last first class and ODI matches, Aftab's poor performance, Imrul's test and first class average. Is this the best we got? I am asking you.

I think Raqibul will take over from Zunaid. He played excellent in the practice match. He might not have a good record in test(not even in odi) he should be able to play considerably well for the team.
Naeem might have been selected but I don't think he has much experience.
Its good to see Razzaq and Enamul in the test squad. I think the selectors have done a decent job.
Inshallah WILL WIN.

You might be right. I agree that an effective rookie is better than an ineffective experienced player.

I think shuvo is a bright prospect. But we know enamul caused England trouble the last time they toured here. I'm hoping he will again in chittagong...

I'm afraid it might well be. You seem full of criticism, but offer no alternatives. Who would you like to see in the team?

Some talk aboout Foysol Hossain (Deccans), but surely his time has come and gone. Rajin saleh? Perhaps, but the likes of Junaid have achieved more in the past 2 years than rajin has managed in the last 5.

Hannan Sarkar? I think even he knows deep inside, he's probably not good enough. Or perhaps you'd like to see ash in the side, our most experienced player who (after over 50 tests and numerous ODIs) averages less than 25 with the bat in both forms of cricket?

Shahriar Nafees? The mighty slayer of the Australians, has done little of note against a major side since he scored that hundred against ponting's boys in 2006. A man who talks the talk, but can't even raise his game to score against England in a warm up match. Against India, he swished at a few, but never even got a start.

There maybe better batsmen out there. But if there are, no-one knows who they are yet. This, I think, genuinely is the best we have right now...

We've been losing for a while now.
Three months of non stop cricket and not a single win.
Hope we can turn things around.

Welcome Back Kalpurush Bhai you were greatly missed


(i was thinking of opening this thread, but then i thought, it wouldn't be fair since Kalpurush bhai has been missing out in a long long time, it would be very unfair to him!!)


Only one formula for this test: WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN

anything less: Dissapointing
