Default T20 WC squad

Bangladesh #WT20 squad:

Mash, Shakib, Tamim, Mithun, Riyad, Mushy, Soumya, Sabbir, Nasir, Mustafiz, Al-Amin, Taskin, Sunny, Rony, Nurul


Mithun in? If Zim series was to see few players then why Mithun wasn't picked in that series? Idiotic planning...

Who would have thought that 2 years ago?

They have picked mithun based on what?

Other than that good squad.

Good squad actually. Mithun is an interesting pick but I think he is taken as a substitute for Nurul.

Its always good to have a surprise pick in T-20s. Might just click.

It's an ok squad given the resources available but it's still not a squad that will allow us to go far in the tournament. Power-hitting is the main concern as usual and I don't see us posting really big totals (160+) unless Soumya gets lucky with his slogging early on. Spin is a worry after the way Shakib got taken apart by Zimbabwe and Sunny is not in form either. Hoping for the best.

Good question. Nasir is fan favorite and Hom is not, may be that's why. Nasir is still riding on past glories. based on last BPL Hom was more valuable to his team than Nasir. But some people are born to be the scape goat, and Hom is one. Kopaler dosh.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter whether its Nasir or Hom, as neither will make a difference.

The "floater" Mashrafee is the real dead wood now in T20... its sad to say that, being a Mashrafee fan. Now a days he has almost zero contribution to the T20 team.

To anyone concerned/worried about Mithun's selection, he has been in blistering form in the practice matches that took place in Khulna among the preliminary squad members after the Zim series. He was the main reason a much weaker Green team (led by Shuvagata) beat Mash/Shakib's Red team in 3 out of the 4 matches they played. His SR was something to notice apart from his consistent high scores and if I'm not mistaken it was above 180 in all the matches. Had I not followed/got news of those matches I would have been worried as well, but taking his recent and BPL performance into account I would say he is a good inclusion for T20s at least!

Anyone has the brief scorecard of those 4 practice matches?

I don't know everyone is crying about spinners but we got two front line spinners in the team. Than Nasir, Mahamuddullah, Sabbir they all going to bowl as well. No team is going to pick more than two spinners. So we have enough in the squad. Just chill guys. Mithun is a very good pick but I always get the feeling that this guy is like all other bangladeshi stars who plays well in domestic league but fails in international level. Lets hope I am wrong on this one.

eishob Mithun der diya kichu hobey na, our spinners are dudh bhaat, I will go with Sakib & occasional Nasir as spinners, seamers are our only hope, Mash,Mustafiz, Taskin, Rony/AA.
I will pick Taskin against India because Taskin has a very good ODI record against Ind.

^First we need to qualify

Honestly, the squad above is substandard and we will be lucky enough to make it to the next round. Hell Netherlands will enjoy the pace we have to offer.

I think the following players have earned their spot: Tamim, Sabbir, Riad(too inconsistent though, a spin option though), Shakib, Mustafiz, Rony, Mash(c), Al Amin

As for others
Arafat sunny - He is quite useful in ODIs. Arguably one of the better ODI bowlers as far as restricting runs are concerned but in the T20 format the flat trajectory and darts are Hit-me-for-six balls.

Taskin- He showed some skills in the few T20Is he has played, but not the best of BPL behind him. Also his poor fielding is a worry for us

Mithun - Had a decent BPL, but nothing more to write regarding him. Didn't even get a match against Zimbabwe. Hell he wasn't in the squad but now in the WT20s? Maybe the coach saw something in the non-televised practices matches we never saw.

Soumya- He is a quality fielder. An aggressive batsman who can take away the game. Unfortunately, he has been in poor form and I would really wish that he is able to sort his issues. We need Soumya to fire. He is crucial for us.

Nasir - Why? DIdn't do much in BPL. Great fielder which is a good plus point and can bowl a few overs but his skinny arms are not good enough for a finisher in T20Is.

Another thing i would like to highlight is that, 5 pacers as opposed to 1 spinner is a retarded decision by all means necessary. You know how many NZ have? Yes 3 specialist spinners. On Indian wickets our pace bowler will travel to the boundary faster than Ravi Shastri says "that has gone like tracer bullet"

And on top of that, we are going to field a very unfit team with - Mushy, Al Amin, Mashrafe, Mustafiz all are not great fielders. I am sure Rony and mithun aren't great either. Nasir is a saving grace in the fielding department.

Ideally, we are missing a batsman who can play in all gears. In an ideal world, i would have picked Anamul should he be able to sort his selfishness. He is no doubt the best specialist batsman we have for the T20 format, and a decent fielder too. Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has been doing so well in all the BPLs but overlooked because he is overaged. A spinner at 35? Any idea how old is Hogg? Taijul would not have been bad either as he can actually spin the ball unlike Nasir or Sunny.

But what is done, is done. I hope the 15 selected can make all the difference.

Seriously people?! I'm writing here after long time because with the selector people are also becoming brain less.

Nasir, probably the only real fielder we have in the team. One wicket of Virat kohli or Shane Watson makes a difference.

His average of 30 + in test and ODI is a very good indicator, plus in many games he has taken important wickets. Comparing him to Vimrul and Hom is the biggest disgrace, those were the free wickets for the opponents.

BPL is never a good indicator as we so in Zimbabwe series, the failure of BPL stars.

Another bad decision for a while is to leave out Anamul, much better opening option than Tamim.

A great team. Nasir needs to play period. Let's face the facts, if we play Mushfique and Nurul there are two keepers, which affects the balance because you can't include an alrounder. So get Mushy to keep and yes, Nasir is a huge impact player. When Nasir wasn't performing in 2014 the team didn't win a single match, now eventhough we have other match winners Nasir can contribute with ball and fielding majorly. He does bat too low down and probably can't muscle a few but he can make major contributions with his effective off spin which we need and fielding which he has shown already.

^Needs to play to do what? Field? Specialist fielder?..cause no one can remember when he did anything decent with the bat even in his format ODIs..forget t20s.. His bowling got tonked by zim batsmen if i can remember It's either him or Riyad or a spot.

Please suggest a replacement then! Who do you pick out of our massive depth of T20 superstars?
