Default Bowling attack for the Test series

Ok I am trying to forget the ODI series. So lets start talking about our test series. Our batting is pretty set with Tamim, Imrul, Mushy, Riyad, Mominul, Shakib all untouchables for now. There will be a call between Mosaddek, Nasir, Liton, Shahriar Nafees and sadly Soumya for the 7th slot. The concern is in bowling. Who is going to make the bowling attack? Right now we dont even have a clue tbh. Selectors have thrown a bunch of seamers for the practice games that doesnt even have a lot of FC experience and we have some LOI seamers that did not perform well in the past for the longer format. Then we have to worry about our spinners. Something we dont seem to worry about (by we I mean the selectors). But we need one or 2 good frontline spinners if we want to have any chance of getting 20 wickets.

So I think so far we have,

Shakib
Taijul

We still need 2 seamers at least and think about a 3rd strong spin option. Who will fill these voids?

Some seamer options we have,

Mohammed Shohid (injured? lost? discarded?)
Rubel Hossain (failed in past)
Al Amin Hossain (failed in past)
Shafiul Islam (failed in past)
Ibadat Hossain (barely any experience)
Abu Jayed (not enough evidence of FC success)
Shuvashish Roy (not enough evidence of FC success)
Taskin Ahmed (Injury prone and lack of FC experience)
Abu Hider (failed in FC)
Kamrul Islam Rabbi (not enough evidence of FC Success)

It could be just me but I think given the options we have, someone like Forhad Reza would have been much better. More successful at FC level then all of these guys and played way more too. We need guys like Shohid, Reza type seamers that are fairly tidy and will bowl long spells without leaking runs. Basically setting up our spinners for the wickets.

For spinners, well we dont know how good Jubair will be after such a long break with very little match experience. Recent records suggest he hasnt made any progress. So do we just go with one of Nasir or Mosaddek and hope they step in with the bowl? Or do we go with someone new like Miraz who is more of a bowling allrounder then Nasir and Mosaddek.

Or we can go with someone like Arafat, Saqlain or Mosharraf and go with a proper bowling option...

Discuss away!

First, what pitch are we playing in? Spinning? Flat? or Seaming? Bowler selection depends on the conditions.

In that case who will handle the googlies of Adil Rashid? Most of our batsman dont read the ball from the hand, rather from the pitch...and if you have to guess googlies on a spinning track..be my guest!!

Take Abul Hasan. Because none the pacers will do jack but Abul sure can bat, will give you batting depth

Our Test pitches generally does not favor speedsters, ie likes of Rubel and Taskin. I would rather pick swing bowlers like Shafiul and Abu Jayed.

As for a second spinner besides Shakib, I think Taijul is fine. Don't think there will be a third specialist spinner if all of Riyad, Mosaddek, and Nasir are included in the XI.

I think Shahid and Al amin is a must

Shafiul if we going with 3rd seamer

Nasir and tajiul as spinners

So

Tamim
Imrul
Mominul
Mahmadullah... Or Sabbir... I'll really like to see sabbirp
Mushfiq
Shakib
Liton
Nasir
Shahid
Shafiul/Tajiul
Al amin

Can't have a long tail in tests so nasir at 8 and Shahid at 9 looks decent

Not completely sold on Al Amin Hossain & Shafiul in Tests...in Shorter formats, they can keep things tight but how do you expect them to trouble batsmen in tests when they have a poor record in Test matches...


Taijul has lost his rookie season mojo....(like may others before him)

I don't think we stand any chance unless we take 20 wickets. The only opposition against whom we took 20 wickets in Tests is i think Zimbabwe and Pakistan(2003) and that was 13 years ago...

Al amin not been given a fair run in tests, got a good first class record, can nip it both ways with decent bounce

Shafiul might swing it early...

What happened to nazmul hossain

That's just sad and unprofessional from bcb.

How they treated him, purely unfair. He represented the national team and did decent each time he got chance to play in ODI's, never had any decent amount of chances in the side even if he did bowl well.

Then he gets injured and BCB says 'sorry no can do' in regards to paying for his treatment! Sickening way to treat a player.

In addition to an in-form Rubel's ability in ODIs, it seems some people somehow completely forgot about our dependency on Taijul in Tests too.

Taijul is our go-to spinner in Tests in addition to Shakib. We heavily rely on him. Jubair was good too after he replaced Hom (lol). Leaks runs but picks up wickets.

1. Tamim
2. Imrul
3. Mominul
4. Mahmudullah (part-time)
5. Mushfiqur
6. Shakib
7. Mosaddek (part-time)
8. Shahid
11. Taijul
10. 2nd pacer
11 Jubair

12-15: Liton/Nurul, Sabbir, 3rd pacer

No sure who the 2nd and 3rd pacers should be. Just no Rubel or Shahadat...or Soumya lmao. Al-Amin and someone else.

This to me is a safe lineup. Good depth, adequate bowling. No need to risk Taskin in tests. Good to keep to 2 pacers and 2 spinners.

Really tough job for selectors.... When did we play our last test?? What was our combo then???

I think we may see some surprises from the selectors. The performance of practice matches may be a criteria. Sabbir and Soumya could be in the reckoning for tests. May be we can see Meraz coming in as an offie. It will be an interesting squad I think. It's a fresh start in test matches and I feel we will see some thing new

Bowling attack boila kisu nai amader. More like bowling defense. We should field 3 debutants in bowling with Shakib. Debutants always do well first game. We can drop them in the second test once they wreck england
