Default BanglaCricket Squad Announced

The BCS selection panel have opted for experience for their first World Cup campaign beginning on January 15. The biggest surprise of the announcement was the inclusion of Bourny3, who will return after a one-year absence from international cricket.

The left-hander of South Australian origin was dropped from the recent test and ODI series against Saintsational and Webhostingtalk after a largely unsuccessful domestic season. Bourny has yielded 3 wickets at more than forty representing Team Rasel, however his three seasons of domestic cricket was deemed valuable enough to warrant a place in the cup.

Other veterans who have featured in the BCS system since its beginning are Asif Rahman, Rubu, Tehsin, Hasib, James90 and Ehsan who returns after an eye operation. The squad appears well balanced with an abundance of youth who just recently experienced their first domestic season.

Sunniath and MasterBlaster can also consider themselves fortunate to be part of the squad, after both featured minimally in the recently concluded ODI series. Making way in the side are Omio and Bancan who will now have to work hard to earn a contract before the next challenge.

Asif Rahman is likely to be announced as captain in the following days.

Squad (15): Adel_chain_gang, AsifTheManRahman, Bourny3, Ehsan, Hasib, Hatebreed, Imran78, James90, Lidcombe, MasterBlaster, Miraz, Rubu, Shahriyar, Sunniath, Tehsin
41.3 Gabriel to Liton Das, FOUR runs,... Bangladesh have just demolished West Indies in stunning fashion. Highest successful chase in Bangladesh's ODI history, and highest in this World Cup.
