Default Who should be dropped for the 2nd test?

The main contenders are Nasir, Sabbir, Imrul and Soumya.

Unlikely contender to be dropped: Shafiul Islam.

So what do you guys think? who should be dropped?

Out of the five options, please select two.

My two picks: Nasir Hossain and Imrul Kayes.

Nasir hasn't shown anything, didn't add any value to the team.
Imrul Kayes just doesn't have it in him.. nothing special to be honest.

I don't know who should be dropped but I hope team Management would bring back Mominul and Liton.

May be, Sabbir and Shafiul. We don't need two pacers in these type of wickets.

soumya can be another pacer, so dropping shafiul and bring another spinner would be good option

Kayes is wasting his spot. he needs to go. I didn't like the way he throw his wicket.

Nasir and sabbir are both brilliant fielder. Nasir can bowl too. he bats to low order and just one match doesn't justify his drop

we have to include mominul and Liton--so kayes and sabbir/soumya need to go

instead of shafiul, may be we can add taskin or keep sabbir

SS.

not because I 'hate him' or anything lol but because of his own good. He is an asset, and a drop would do much to improve his temperament. Come'on guys, just because of two stellar catches doesn't suddenly get him off the hook.

Kayes has this bad boy image. Remember the 100 he scored in his comeback after being dropped? He has this 'ghaura' attitude of 'dekhaya dimu' that he needs to channel in these kind of batting unfriendly patches.

Why pick two?

One of Sarkar or imrul needs to make way my picks

Imrul - mominul
Sabbir - Das
Nasir - mossadek
Shafiul - Roy or taskin

Can anyone reasonably tell me that's not a better team

Tamim
Sarkar
Mominul
Mushfiq
Shakib
Mossadek
Das w/k
Mehedi
Taijul
Roy/Taskin
Mustafizur

Moss is still out. Otherwise this is my team as well. I would rather give Nasir another game.

Drop Shafiul, SS and Sabbir

Willing to give Imrul another chance but make him open with Mini coming in at 3. Replace Sabbir with Das. Nasir making a comeback I'd give him another chance

One change. Drop Imrul and bring in Mominul. Sarker and Shabbir are our future. The more exposure they get under Tamim, Shakib and Mushy's guidance the better. Imrul will never be consistent and will always remain below par player. Time to invest on potential future stars and SS and Shabbir are just that.

Maybe bring in Taskin too in place of Shafiul

Aussies are considering going in with lone seamer. http://www.cricket.com.au/news/austr...est/2017-08-30


Perhaps Bangladesh can do the same and go with just Fizz or Shafiul/Taskin. For the fourth spinner I would choose Jubair (legspin). need to blood new talent and I'm sure hathuri would support that.

Agree that the batting line up needs a fine tune. Imrul doesn't look in form. Keep Nasir and Shabbir. So my choice would be to reinstate Mominul in place of Kayes.

Tamim
Liton
Shanto/mominul
Mominul/shanto
Mushy
Shakib
Sabbir
Mehedi
Taijul
Taskin
fizz

Possibly saifuddin instead of taskin or fizz, adds batting and swings it more.

Maybe put mominul at 3 for now as liton is inexperienced and that way we have more experience in the top 3, shanto can bat 4 (5 if you really want) so he can get experience and eventually swap with mominul for the number 3 spot.

Don't see any point bringing back Rubel or Roy or kamrul, get a younger pacer in, rony a contender but fizz does his role so saifuddin might be better and has more batting prowess.

Could bring in jubair for taijul but taijul did fine last match. Don't want to drop a pacer because you never know if the wicket will need more than one plus whatbofbyouvtake one pacer and they get injured? You've got none then.

Not bad. I would rather open with Shanto and have Liton keep. And also not fair to drop Nasir after just one game, while giving Sabbir yet another chance considering they play the same role. Ergo:

Tamim
Shanto
Mominul
Mushy
Shakib
Mehedi
Liton (wk)
Nasir
Taijul
Taskin
Fizz

Only one real change is needed for 2nd test, bringing back Mominul in place of either Soumya or Imrul.

2nd pacer's role is not that important on a spinning track, so they can keep Shafiul just to avoid injury to Taskin prior to the tour of South Africa next month. Shafiul might also be a slightly better batsman than him..

Other than that, Liton can be considered to be drafted in the playing 11 instead of Nasir or Shabbir and have Mushy as a batsman. But don't really see this happening as Mushy loves to keep and making too many changes to winning 11 is not ideal..

Since we are not using the pacers much and most probably it will be the same in Ctg, I am for a pacer who can tear away in short bursts. Yes I am talking about Taskin. Somya can be the new ball bowler just to take the shine away. Mehedy does well with the new ball too. Shafiul is a waste of a place. We should boost the batting instead. Liton should come in as a specialist bat plus keeper which will allow Mushy to bat at 4. Somya and Sabbir should be given one more chance. Momin in place of Imrul is a must. So, my XI for 2nd test would be:

Tamim
Somya
Momin
Mushfiq
Shakib
Liton
Sabbir
Nasir
Mehedy
Taijul
Taskin

Sabbir can be interchanged with soumya, nasir or mosa if fit.

Shanto I don't think should open, he isn't an opener. Liton on the other hand is an opener, he even keeps whilst opening in domestics.

If the pitch in Chitagong is similar to Dhaka then why would you pick 2 seamers? I would also keep Shabbir ahead of Das. If mushfiq is comfortable with his keeping.

Mustafiz is out of form and have zero expectation from other pacers. Also would like to keep Taskin fit for SA. Considering this Roy is better not becuase of his bowling but he has better defense as a batsmen than any other pacers in the squad..

I second this motion. Great line-up, and batting all the way to no.9 (Mehedi). In fact, I would play Mehedy at No. 8 - we need to groom him as our next Shakib.

Tamim
Somya
Momin
Mushfiq
Shakib
Liton
Sabbir
Mehedy
Nasir

Taijul
Taskin

Not exactly sure why we are so happy with Roy, he's averaged over 55 and not far off 100 with his strike rate, why wouldn't you blood saifuddin or rony instead? Taskin I can understand as keeping him fit is a valid point (though I'm of the opinion that if he's fit then play him - he may just get injured next series anyway...you just don't know so play him while you can).

Lol, what did IK do, drop Souyma, he is disrupting the position of Imrul Kayes, let Kayes open.

Very odd why fans still want that Ashraful Esque hack in the team.
