Remember the 14 year-old test debutant Hazan Raza ? I see he played in both the 1998 and 2000 under 19 world cups and is still playing first class cricket to this day !
That Alex Loudon is more famous for banging Pippa Middleton than anything he did in cricket.
ICC qipped on a Associate Qualifier this year,done in regional divisions,and UAE got in cause their hosts,somewhat like Kenya did 1 year.
Most the Aussie players we're poor in the national championships this year,could be an almost new team,Jake Doran will be there tho had a great tournament.
On topic, I was actually thinking about this tournament yesterday and didn't realise how soon it was going to start. Bangladesh are always perennial under achievers in this tournament. Last time they lost to hosts and eventual runners up, Australia in the quarter-finals. Whilst that was no disgrace, they did then lost the 5th Place Play-off Semi-Final against England, a team that they had recently beaten 7-3 on aggregate.
This year's team seems to be a young and inexperienced side compared to previous sides.
The two standout players are also the most experienced in the team: Mosaddek Hossain (Saikat), a middle order batsman and Jubair Hossain, a promising leg-spinner.
Saikat is an aggressive batsman in the mould of Nasir Hossain. Like Nasir, he made his name with the team Abahani in the Dhaka Premier League, where he was one of the top performers at a young age. Like most Bangladeshi middle order batsmen he also bowls useful spin.
Jubair has took a lot of wickets at this level including a hat-trick against the West Indies. He could prove to be crucial as a strike bowler if the conditions in the UAE are spin friendly because the pacers in this team are very ordinary, like their predecessors.
If all goes well and the conditions are favourable then this side could be potential dark horses; if they manage to qualify for the knock-out stages (provided they beat Afghanistan) and get a kind draw (not one of the sub continent teams) then they could do one better than last time and reach the semi-finals.

Had a couple of the likely Scottish team playing some club cricket in Bay of Plenty this year while staying out at the Ben Williams Cricket Acadmey. Mike English and Gavin Main.
Gav has some good pace on him and Mike is a pretty technically sound bat who is good in the field.
I beleive Gavin is already in the Durham? county set up.
Well England just lost to the UAE, so we can probably write this tour off too...
No, England will get two wins over Sri Lanka, NZ and UAE.
Sadly I've seen enough of the current Kiwi side against spin to predict finishing third in that pool would be about par for them now.
