Yes, according to Bangladesher Khela Report, Khaled Mahmud and Alok Kapali will be back.

The other man should be Raj, as Enamul Jr. will be in.

My team:

1. Abdul Hannan Sarkar
2. Javed Omar Belim
3. Qazi Habibul Bashar (yes, I think this is the ideal position for him in tests)
4. Rajin Saleh Alam
5. Mohammad Ashraful
6. Manjarul Islam
7. Khaled Mashud
8. Mohammad Rafique
9. Tapash Baisya
10. Enamul Haque Junior
11. Tareq Aziz

12th Man: Alamgir Kabir (he needs to burn the fat)

3 spinners and two pacemen; however, i must admit that i'm having problems fitting Mushfique into the first eleven.

Because Mahmud has done well with the ball so far I think he should play in the 1st test. I predict Rana and Saleh will fail with the bat in the 3rd ODI, if they do then they should be dropped. My team would be
Sarkar
Omar
Bashar
Ashraful
F. Hossain
Rahman
Mashud
Mahmud/Saleh Saleh if Khaled sent home
Razzak/Hoque havent seen Raj play but if he turns the ball like Hoque then he should be in because he has more to offer with the bat.
Rafique
Baisya

I still believe that Mushfiqur is taking up the place of a real pace bowler and is not required with Rana there but i know they'll pick him

I think for test team they should kick all the top 5 batsman out..
bring lower order up..and then choose 5 more batsmen from even rural part of BD who will atleast score 30 runs. Ridiculous to see 3 wkts gone in zero runs!!!

1. I would continue with Javed-Hannan as they were successful in Australia and before Javed got injured.

2. You need 2 front line pacers, not what we are using for pace in the ODIs

3. Rana vs Mushfiq will be the choice for all-rounder if you want to include 2 specialist spinners. You can't have Enamul and Rafique and then also have both Rana and Mushfique. Rana should not be opening the test innings, but if he does than you have more options. The pitch should dictate whether we go with pace or spin in the all-rounder slot.

In any case, you can only have 5 specialist batsmen.

So:

Hannan
Javed
Bashar
Rajin
Ashraful
Rana/Mushfiq
Pilot
Rafique
Enamul
Tapash
Aziz

They tried that for an ODI. Pilot and Alok I think opened, but it didn't quite work out.

Yes. In the least, he is out of the test squad for now & not being considered.

I've been thinking all along that we only have one pacer and Tareq should be there. That's why i believe Mushfiqur should be dropped. However after 144 and 101 in the first one dayers i think it might be neccesary to play 6 specialist batsmen plus Pilot and Rana. However I would like to see rafiq's team

this test team will be real hard to pick. I would also like to have 3 spinners in there, but that will make it very hard for us to pick 2 frontline paceman. I don't feel quite comfortable going into a test with Tapash and Mushfique as our only paceman. Rana iz in excellent form, so i don't see how he can be left off. The selectors will have a tough time finding a place for Raj/Enamul.

Default State of Bangladesh Cricket

I have the following observations after our loss in the 2nd ODI:
(1) We lost the match because the West Indies had a better strike rate.
(2) They struck the balls better because they are, in general, more skilled in batting.
(3) To beat a team with better batting skills our top order has to assume some responsibilities. Remember in 1999 Biddut and Mehrab were 69/0. In the win with Zimbabwe Bashar scored a half century.
(4) The five batsmen in the top order (Hannan, Ash, Bashar, Rajin, and Alok) has to produce something collectively and if one scores a duck, the remaining members have to make it up.
(5) We may have to ask each of our top order batsmen not to touch the ball unless it is on the stamps. We should, perhaps, insist that they allow the first bowler they face have a maiden over.

I am praying that we would put up a good fight in the 3rd ODI and force a deserving, not rain-affected, draw in one of the two tests.
I want Alok to be replaced by Faisal in the 3rd ODI

Habibul-fan,

Bangladesh's lineup problems would be solved if they were allowed to play with 12 men.

Only 2 can play from Rana/Mushfiq/Enamul. The 6th batsman hasn't mattered much in all our previous test losses, and the allrounder and Pilot do get some runs. So I think if the wicket allows it, and WI is susceptible to spin, and you are flying Enamul out there, and you can't drop Rafique, then you might as well go with Rafique-Enamul and create some real pressure. With Aziz coming in, Mushfique is dispensable from the test side. But without the specialist #6 batsman, the choice of Mushfiq vs Rana will be based on their batting since we will have 4 front line bowlers.

5 batsmen-1 allrounder-1 WK-4 bowlers. That's like the 4-4-2 in soccer. Bangladesh have NEVER used it. Why not give it a try?
