Very true. Gazi adds variety, and some depth in the batting. And we all know he is a long term prospect for the NT. So might as well start grooming him now, especially when the legend Saqlain Mushtaq is mentoring the spinners. Also Windies have a few left handers, so it doesnt hurt having off spinners.

But you know our selectors right. They are very conservative and will hesitate to make changes.

Razzak in outstanding form in NCL so far. But good decision by selectors in not picking him. He cannot take his position for granted.

So selectors have a dilemma. Clearly Shakib and Gazi are not enough. Theres sth wrong with Shakib-fatigue, injury, or he has to work on his bowling. Gazi alone is not enough to trouble the Windies. So we either sacrifice a pace bowler, which wont happen. So the next best alternative is drop an all rounder. Thats not the hard part. Who to pick as the 3rd spinner. Sunny is automatic choice. But Razzak has been in the form of his life in FC cricket. Enamul too is likely to offer more than what Shakib did.

So lot to think abt for selectors and management

I agree with you however lets see how we bat first before thinking about dropping batsman.
I think the ideal way to go would be to drop one pacer and one batsman and pick two more spinners. That would enable us to throw everything we got (in terms of bowling) at the west indies. Play Gazi, Sunny, Enamul and Nazmul as the four specialist bowlers plus shakib. If we still can't manage 20 wkts then there is really no hope for us.

According to several successful NCL batters over the past few seasons including this one, Enam is the most threatening spinner out there. They also rate Shojib, Shohag and Munna highly.

Whats wrong with your bowling? It looks like we are back in the early 2000's where we cant bowl out opposition.

I'm a BIG fan of Razzak. But in a test, he is a NO NO. Keep it simple -just bring in Sunny.

If we don't get them out still...the only question then is, how did we choose this lineup then, for T1 ? We just have no understanding of our assets.

We have degenerated in bowling only for 2 reasons -

No Mashrafee
Shahadat can no longer take 5-fers. He barely gets one wic now.

But Razzak has been devastating in FC this season. Best bowler by miles. 28 wickets at an average of 14. Almost 10 wickets more than the next leading wicket taker. Anyone know how? Bowling very well? Good form?

Looking forward to the day we see Shakib, Sunny and Gazi all bowl together on a spin friendly pitch.

Sunny is decent but according to me Saqlain Shajib has the potential to be the best SLA in the country after Shakib. He has the height which he uses very well to generate bounce when he's bowling. I was very impressed watching him in the BPL. He has 186 FC wickets at an average of 19 and he hasn't even been called up to the A team regularly. No offense to ES but I'd even rate the other Sunny (Arafat) as a more potent limited-overs bowler.

Again another 7 wickets for Razzak. Enamul also picked up a 7 wicket hall. At the rate these two are going they will create first class records this season. Gazi did an excellent job. Shakib clearly needs more time to get into form. Wonder what could have been the impact of having Razzak or Enamul as the third spinner.

razzak and enaml are going nuts in NCL this season, problem is when they where given chances in test matches they didn't perform so well and now we have some pretty solid spinners in the test match line-up with shakib, sunny and sohag so despite enamul and razzak doing well in domestics i don't think it's fair to drop any of shakib, sunny and sohag at this point given that they have performed well in their test match chances so far (which enamul and razzak failed to do) and that they also perform very well domestically. although razzak's form is pretty unbelievable with a 7fer and 3fer this match, a 9fer and a 4fer last match, a 5fer and a 4fer the match before that and then a 6fer in the match before that (round 1). but then enamul also has a 7fer, two 6fers and two 5fers.

Gowza maybe Razzak has worked on his bowling. Maybe the fact he was selected for the series has motivated him to perform. Not to mention the competition from the younger spinners. We will keep both Shakib and Gazi. Big question is whether we should have a third spinner. For that we have to either drop a pacer (Which wont happen, although pacers really doing bring in much value). Or we drop a batsman. Personally i feel Bangladesh will be a stronger team with an extra spinner. Until Shakib finds his form

The selectors need to go watch NCL matches to be able to make that call. Unfortunately, Akram chacha is too busy ordering KFC at home.

Both Razzak & Enamul should be selected in National Team (ODI), Drop Elias Sunny For ODI.

Spin bowling is fine, its our pace pipeline we should be all concerned about. Shakib, Sunny and Gazi plus the part timers on a spinning track will devastate the opposition.

Shortly after the ICC trophy win, a reporter spotted Akram devouring fried chicken pieces as if they were candy at a reception for the teams participating in the upcoming Asia Cup tournament. Concerned about his health, she walked up to him and told him he shouldn't eat so much, to which Akram's reply was something along the lines of, "Oh we're very confident about doing well in the Asia Cup".

It was in the newspapers, so not my words.

Hehe funny character. I remember i once went to get his autograph. He wrote "Good. Akram Khan." I always wondered why he deviated from best wishes, complements from and wrote just good :P. But he could really clear the fence when he wanted. Used to do well in the tournaments BCB organized inviting India A, Pakistan A and Sri Lanka A.

We need to make sure that Noor Hossain is nurtured well because a quality leg spinner will make sure that our spin attack is dangerous.

In current NCL I never see his name anywhere. Is he playing NCL?
