Same reason Taskin wasn't picked. SS would walk into our Test side and Taskin probably would too but they are being developed and nurtured through Academy and then A side. My guess is they won't debut until 2014 at the earliest. Anamul, Mominul might pop up in the WI series. Asif is off the rader for now.
Cricket cannot live with the mistaken belief that people want to see big hits. People like to see goals, but no one is talking of moving the goalposts a metre wider either side. (Harsha Bhogle)
