hard to put mushy higher than #7 if he's keeping, would recommend #6 be the very highest if he is to keep wicket.

The best is yet to come but based on those who have played so far:

1. Tamim
2. Zunaid
3. Bulbul
4. Ashraful
5. Shakib (C)
6. Mushfique
7. Riyad
8. Mashud (WK)
9. Mashrafe
10. Rafique
11. Shahadat

Nasir hasn't played enough tests but he'll be there for sure. Daulat Zaman, Yusuf Babu and Nazrul Qadir Lintu never played tests but I bet they'd have been up there if they had.

Now, I appreciate the fact that he was getting runs when everyone around him were totally out of depth, but that won't put HaBa in my team EVER.

I put Imroze as my opener instead of Mofees because as crappy openers go, he's likely to survive longer. I don't want to hear about his fluke heroics against Australia ever again.

Sohel bhai, interesting observation on Bashar. He was a little bit unsure at start of his innings of his footwork but mainly he was strokemaker and used to get his runs fairly quickly and many times took the team out of trouble. It's true it would have been better if he could transform his fifties into hundreds but he was one of the best pullers and best player of short pitch bowling in the team at that time

Surprised to see no one selected our one and only Test batsman, " Javed Omar Belim Golla" who holds the record of 'carrying bat through the innings' against Zim.

My BD Test XI as of today:

1. Javed Omar
2. Tamim
3. Habibul Bashar (C)
4. Aminul Islam
5. Shakib Al Hasan
6. Mahmudullah
7. Khaled Masud Pilot
8. Mashrafe
9. Md. Rafique
10. Rubel Hossain
11. Enamul Haque Jr.

As an outsider the Bangladesh side in the Bashar era (this includes guys like Omar, Ashraful, Kapali, Mashud, Rafique) were hopeless easy beats. These guys might have been the best players then and they played for a while but I reckon the current stock of players are better than each one of them. To be fair I didn't see a lot of them apart from one series in the Northern Territory in Aus but they weren't worth watching in those days.

I did a thread a little while ago about the "statistical best XI" for Bangladesh. Hopefully in 10 years there are none of the old names on it. May sound harsh, even disrespectful, but seriously they weren't up to international standard.

Dont think you're being disrespectful at all...not sure you'll find anyone disagreeing with you. If in a decades time, any of the old names are still being put in 'all time teams', there will be mass suicides in Bangladesh

But to cut those guys some slack...some of the older players were past their best, when Bangladesh finally made it into international cricket proper...and they received nothing like the kind of support the current crop do(be it financial, training, mental or otherwise).

Disagree there with Rafique. Rafique was class SLA esp. in Tests. Yes, he averages 40 and took 100 wickets in 33 Tests but those figures don't sum up his actual bowling partly because at those times Bangladesh used to bowl One Innings only and given those limited chances, Rafique showed his skills. He has 7 times 5 wickets haul with economy of under 3. At those times he was there up with Daniel Vettori and was classified as one of the best SLAs around.

I would like to see a thread for 'Worst BD Test XI'. I'm pretty sure Imrul Kayes will make everyone's list.

Then 'Minhajul Abedin Nannu' would have made it too cause he was the most technically sound and intelligent batsman who never played Test match. It was such a shame that he was neglected by selectors while his other team mates Aminul, Akram, Durjoy got chance to play test matches.

Another player who might have done well if given more chances was Shahriar Hossain Biddut; liked the way he used to play square cuts and off drives

Biddut was one of my favs. He was such a sweet timer of the ball. Still remember his back to back century against MCC.

Biddut got his chances but didn't capitalize those. He had what it takes to be an opener but somehow managed not to use it. Same goes for Opi, Rokom. Maybe they were not serious, family reasons or whatever the case maybe, at the end of the day its our cricket that suffered.
