^^^ for some reason, BCB does not like Arafat Sunny I guess!?
You are right, Arafat should be in WI now...

taijul needs to play, we really need to see what he's got, nothing to lose really otherwise we're playing elias sunny as the main spinner or if he's overlooked then riyad is the frontline spinner (which atm is quite possibly a better choice than elias).

We have no chance of getting 10 wickets unless its a turning track. Batting well and earning a draw is our best chance.

yes we need a couple of tons this match, agree we need to aim to bat well. unlikely to take 20 wickets but at least if you bat well a draw is always on the cards plus if a bowler unexpectedly has a great match then the win becomes possible.

I've seen Mominul bat in the 2nd innings live on the stream, no idea why he's not on the scorecard.

Another world record ahead of us..WI will score 700 and most sixes in a test then...I am not sure how Sunny got called ..I was just wondering what reasoning or justification they use in selection process..never imagined that musical chair will be implemented in professional system beyond entertainment purpose.

Elias Sunny had a good debut against West Indies.... I agree he is not in form but still is a much better choice than Raj or even Gazi who apart from those breakthroughs, looks Non threatening for the most part.

Well Faruk Ahmed is hoping Elias Sunny performs otherwise this wont look good on his performance evaluations!

Hope the boys take inspiration from their 2004 tour and stretch for a draw. Bowling out the Windies wont be easy. Tigers will be tested by both pace and spin.

Why do i sense both Shamsur and Imrul again.

Not sure what happened to Mosharraf Rubel and Enamul Haq Junior...
Saqlain Sajib was doing really well, so was Arafat sunny.
I think Elias Sunny got lucky here, hope he makes Faruk proud...

I wish the selectors got paid based on the players performance...

Elias Sunny was not even in the A-team training camp, suddenly now he is in the national team middle of an overseas tour! How long will we have to put up with this sort of irrational behavior from Faruk?!

You guys should keep your eyes on Taylor. His bowling has improve tremendously after having been away from the WI team for a long period. He has the pace and swing to rip through any batting lineup.

When a player himself says "Surprised by the call up" you already know something is not right. You don't get surprised to get call ups if you had been performing. This already tells us that he has been in a SH*T form with the ball ... bummer.

Just let shakib play damet!

I saw that team management is thinking about not playing Mominul in the 1st Test. If this happens, it'd be the most ridiculous decision. He better not get dropped

So what will the XI look like?

Tamim
Shamsur
Imrul
Mominul
Hom
Mushy
Nasir
Riyad
Robiul
Taijul
Robiul

Is my guess.

probably this i reckon, robiul and rubel the pacers, taijul the spinner (please pick taijul and not sunny), batting order could be different, not sure where they'll bat hom given it's his debut and mushy and nasir just got tons, though i think this order is probably the best order to go with.
