tamim is an easy pick, the 2nd spot was between anamul and imrul. imrul has done pretty well as ODI opener but horrible as test opener. anamul is doing really well in first-class cricket but not so good in one-day cricket plus he bats at #3 sometimes rather than opening. due to test cricket being a bigger priority for me i chose anamul, plus he's really young, soo talented and has done so well at every level up to now.

You are right I was confused too regarding the 2nd spot ... I think we should select different team for different format.. I like Imrul as Tamim's partner for ODI..So far Tamim-Imrul partnership has the best openning partnership record..They have a good understanding.. But I want Anamul to be regular in our national team too.. He could open with Tamim in the test and play at #3 in ODI..

#3 spot has a few contenders atm imo. anamul is one of them but there's also jahurul islam, shuvagata hom and even asif ahmed could be considered. but when it comes to opening i think the 2nd opener spot has to be between imrul and anamul, anamul could turnout better than imrul in one-dayers we just don't know atm.

Imrul is still my first choice number two. Albeit all his deficiencies, man can hold up one end and play big shots. Desperately needs to learn to rotate though.

Problem is you can't pick two cause i think multiple openers are needed for multiple formats. Tamim is one. But if you are going for a away tour and you can only have one for all formats then I would have JS.

Tamim/Anamul - Tests

Tamim/Imrul - ODIs

Tamim/Zunaed - T20s

But long-term Tamim/Anamul for all three.

Agreed.Anamul is emerging.We need to nurture him well.To me he will be the future partner of TAMIM.But he needs to start gradually.We can think him as test opener first.But one thing is Nazimuddin showed a good show as test opener.

I voted Tamim and Imrul. Tamim can achieve big things if he can keep on concentrating and practicing hard. And I've always said Imrul is the closest thing to a Javed Omar Belim Golla we have. I like their combination. Both awesome shot pickers, picking one bad ball per over for the boundary.

I haven't seen much of Anamul, so can't say much. But sure, anything to get rid of Mushfiq pleases me a great deal. If he can become that wicket keeper batsmen for us, we can happily say good bye to Mushfiq.

Why would you want to say good bye to Mushfiq?

IK is so highly underrated here in BC. He is the perfect partner for Tamim in the ODI's. Anamul should play one down and not opening in ODI's & Tests.

In T20, he should be allowed to open and his duty should be to play a long innings and stay there till the end. Most of the team are employing such strategies and I think Anamul would be perfect for that role.

That's what I think too...

So I voted for 4; Tamim permanent and then pick IK/JS/NU depending on form, opponent and pitch etc...

tamim has amazing talent, i've no doubt he can be a 45+ even a 50+ average player in tests. as far as anamul goes he wouldn't take the gloves in tests if he was batting top 3, in one-dayers and t20s he could but not in tests.

Bad keeping skills man. We have better keepers who can bat as well waiting for their chance. We had to stick with his mediocre keeping skills so long, to polish up his batting. Such sacrifices for an int. team is selfish.

Better keepers who can bat as well as Mushfique? There are WK's who maybe better than Mushfique but I don't see anyone matching Mushfique's batting skills (Not considering Anamul).

WK's in the pipeline: Jaharul, Dhiman, Sahagir, Mithun ? I don't see them as talented as Mushfique when it comes to batting.

Jaharul and Dhiman are better. Mushfiq took ages to be where he is right now, and right now he's decent, not even good. Just stick with Jaharul and Ghosh and they will give you a quicker return on runs than Mushfiq did. Jaharul especially.
