Dipak Patel Coach. The other three selectors are Lance Cairns, John Wright and Kaushik Patel.

Looks like some national team coaches are finding easier to associate with the junior group of players.

I agree! I like him a lot and he has a great future. the series against NZ revealed a better side of this young lad and under Coach Siddons, he will be a great asset to BD cricket. He is not yet 19 yrs, and most batsmen dont mature until they are about 25 yrs old, so he has many years before him.
Can you imagine that a few months ago, fans here were writing him off.

Thanks Ehsen and Mijan (as usual) for the valuable info ...

Hmm, no Asian players in the English squad from the looks of it. No new Nasser Hussein in the horizon I suppose.

Thank you very much Eshen for your posts and links.

Dhonnobad Sohel bhai and Rabz.

From the looks of it, is it too early to dream about all asian semi-finals? Certainly the previous results seem to support that. Barring upsets they should be there.
