Default Bangladesh v 2015 WC squads experience

I was surprised to find that among the 10 test playing nations, we are on par in the list of teams with players of 100+ ODI matches experience under their belt. I have sorted the teams in descending order with the no. of players in 15 member squads of the teams with 100+ ODI experiences.

SL - 6 (Dilshan, Sanga, Mahela, Malinga, Kulasekara, Mathews)
BD - 5 (Tamim, Shakib, Mushfiq, Riyad, Mashrafe)
PAK - 5 (Misbah, Afridi, Hafeez, Akmal, Younis)
IND - 5 (Dhoni, Kohli, Rohit, Jadeja, Raina)
ENG - 5 (Morgan, Anderson, Bell, Bopara, Broad)
ZIM - 5 (Chigumbura, Masakadza, Matsikenyri, Taylor, Utseya)
AUS - 4 (Clarke, Haddin, Johnson, Watson)
NZ - 4 (Brendon, Mills, Ross, Vettori)
WI - 4 (Gayle, Samuels, Ramdin, Sammy)
SA - 3 (Amla, De Villiers, Duminy)

Malinga is not a sure shot, since he's subject to fitness, as well as Clarke for Australia. In that case, SL's reduces to 5, and AUS's t 2. So then there wouldn't be no team with more than 5 players of 100+ ODI matches and we would be right up there. Definitely not far behind this time around

And the Bangledeshi players who are 100+ are still pretty young aside from mash so imagine how experienced the squad will be in the next couple of world cups.

By the time Steyn is done with the WC he would join the club.

I don't think this is not a credibility. That only shows our managment's tendency to send kids out there before they can even grow a single chest hair. At least with these gen. managements were patient enough to stick around. Experience is overrated.

Now I'd be more interested to see a comparison between World Cup experiences. That will show the consistency with our squads.

A very interesting article on the overall experience and records of all the 14 squads in this WC.

The youngest, the most capped, and the most prolific

A look at the World Cup squads' numbers, and how they stack up against each other

World Cup 2015 squads: average ages

Only two squads' average age at World Cup 2015 is over 30: UAE and Sri Lanka. UAE have the two oldest players in the tournament, former captain Khurram Khan and newly-appointed leader Mohammad Tauqir, who, incidentally, are born on the same day: June 21, 1971. That means they'll start the tournament at 43+. The only other player over 40 in the tournament is Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq. The youngest player in the tournament is 18-year-old Afghanistan batsman Usman Ghani, who was born on November 20, 1996. Bangladesh beat Afghanistan to the title of youngest team in the tournament by the narrowest of margins, averaging 25 to Afghanistan's 25.05. The average age, overall, at World Cup 2015 is 28.4.

World Cup 2015 squads: most ODIs

Sri Lanka are by far the most experienced squad at World Cup 2015. In Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan, they have three of the four players in the tournament who have played more than 300 ODIs; Pakistan's Shahid Afridi is the fourth. Jayawardene is the only one with more than 400 (he had played 434 ODIs by the squad deadline day). That all adds up to Sri Lanka having played a whopping 757 ODIs more than the second most capped side, Pakistan. New Zealand, bolstered by Daniel Vettori and Brendon McCullum, come in at No. 3. Bangladesh, South Africa and England are the only Full Members to aggregate fewer than 1000 ODIs. Only three players were picked for the World Cup without having debuted in ODI cricket: Ireland pacer Peter Chase, and West Indies batsman Jonathan Carter and fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell.

World Cup 2015 squads: most ODI centuries

Unsurprisingly, Sri Lanka is the squad with the most ODI hundreds going into the World Cup. India come in second, but the surprise is at No. 3: as of squad deadline day, South Africa are placed third with an aggregate of 47 hundreds - just one shy of India - despite the fact that they are the second least-experienced Full Member at the tournament. Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle have the most ODI hundreds, with 21 apiece. Only six other players picked for the tournament have an ODI-centuries tally in double digits: Kumar Sangakkara, AB de Villiers, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Hashim Amla, Mahela Jayawardene and Ross Taylor.

World Cup 2015 squads: most ODI four-fors

Sri Lanka edge out stiff competition from England, New Zealand, West Indies and Australia as the team with the most four+ wicket hauls, as on squad deadline day. Bangladesh, with 22, are ahead of Pakistan and India, and just one shy of South Africa. Lasith Malinga (16) has almost half of Sri Lanka's 34 four-fors, while Shahid Afridi (13) has two-thirds of Pakistan's 19. The only other bowlers at the tournament with 10 or more four-fors in ODI cricket are England's James Anderson and Stuart Broad, and Australia's Mitchell Johnson.

Note: All stats have been calculated with the numbers as they stand on the squad deadline day - January 7, 2015.

I don't think Steyn is close to 100 caps. Just shows CSA's priorities. Steyn could be if not already the best ODI bowler, but they rest him to play Tests only. All great fast bowlers played both formats but not Styen. Maybe that is how he's been so beastly and healthy.
