Sabbir has not been bowling much lately, but focusing more on his batting. In few NCL/BCL innings, he played in one down. This may be a good ploy to keep up during DPL as no one in current national team cemented #3 position yet.

What does he need to do get in the bloody XI. They pick 2 keepers to block our our best domestic t20 batsmen. Mithun re jeno r dekhi na jiboneo amader squad e. Nilojo selectors are bound to pick him again in the second t20.

Why our selectors are so obsessed with phorhad reza?

Probably because of his performance in domestics.

But Sabbir had a decent record in local T20s. Poor thinking for our selectors

i know he is pretty good at domestic level but when the last time he played well in international level? His bowling is not bad but we need someone like shabbir who can clear ropes easily in that position

"We didn't pick three debutants in the first Twenty20 in order to keep a balance in the side because we already had five players coming into the team," Faruque said. "We picked Mithun ahead of Sabbir because the former can play shots from the word go, but Sabbir needs a bit of time at No 3 or 4 before he starts to flourish. Sabbir has a strike-rate of 130." CI

I actually rate Farukh Ahmed as a good cricket brain but his above comment seems very odd and self-contradicting, to put it mildly. Mithun and Sabbir has played same ammount of T20 innings where Sabbir has far outscored, out averaged and with significantly higher Strike Rate, too. Sabbir has 855 runs from 37 with six 50 plus innings where Mithun has only 556 runs with only three 50 plus knocks. His SR is 117 while Sabbir hits at 131. Sabbir averages at 32, Mithun at 17. Whichever way one looks at there is a huge gulf between the both. Sabbir clearly stands out.

Wonder if the selectors actually follow the cricketers closely before they select them? I´m sure they do. Farukh was involved in the last edition of BPL and must have seen both Mithun and Sabbir play. But, why then such confusing statement from him? It seems like our batsmen are not the only ones with messed up heads!

He is right. Shabbir takes a bit of time before attacking.

We have not seen enough of Mithun to judge him.

Exactly. Its not that I was expecting him to be in the team in the first place. But once he is there, we haven't seen enough of him to drop after 1st game. Plus unlike others, I don't rate him as horrible WK as others did. Yes he was not excelent, but he was not bad either. And he was better than Anamul and make shift wicket keeper Shamsu.

Well, it was Mithun's first match, thus, he needs to given more chances to prove himself.

I am a Sabbir fan, but don't want to replace Mithun just after one match. I hope selectors will keep their head cool and will select the best possible squad for tomorrow's match.

Mithun desreves more chances, one single match really doens't tell anything about any player, otherwise so many great players would have been vanished before they established themselves if considering their first match or seires. Lot of them are legends now who had bad debut first match or series.

Farhad needs another chance too. He was out from national team long time so it is bit harsh on him. It is not easy to click immidiately after long break.

37 innings in T20 is enough to give us an idea as to what sort of batsman one might be. I have seen quite a lot of him in the BPL. And, followed him since his U17 days to Academy and BD A matches. I don´t take any added joy in saying the lad isn´t good enough or not yet ready. Even sloggers like Zia or Milon has better records than Mithun in T20s.

I do appreciate the fact that since he has been selected he should be given a few more opportunity. But, his selection in the first place comes as a major surprise when you have someone like Sabbir waiting in the wings and the T20 World Cup so close at hand.

Mithun will be out of the team once Mushy comes back. There is no way Mithun can replace him in the near future. The only way he can come back to the squad is by solid batting performance. So let him work on his batting. Meanwhile we can definitely take a look at Shabbir since #7 or #8 spot of our national team badly needs a batsman with big hitting ability and Shabbir has demonstrated that many times in the domestic arena. He deserves a chance

Really, what was Faruq thinking?

Or, I should say smoking??!

Richards believes that by bringing in Sabbir Rahman in the batting line-up, Bangladesh can have two attacking batsmen in the end overs, instead of just Nasir.

"I think that someone like Sabbir Rahman has shown at domestic level that he is a good finisher and if those two [Sabbir and Nasir] are in at the death then it will be good to watch."

Mithun was brought in to replace Mushy. I don't get how he then made it over Shabbir who made it due to consistent performance in T20s. Not trying to beat down Mithun but he doesn't deserve to make it over any of the other batsmen in the squad and should be out once Mushy comes back IMO.

How can he be overrated if he hasn't even played in international cricket yet? I think most people would agree that he's hyped for T20s but not for ODIs and Tests
