    Pretty disappointed that the lone Test will be played at Fatullah. Temperature is around 37-38 C these days around the area and the pitch is an absolute road. Might offer something for the spinners from 4th day but very little.

    I hate one off tests... They might as well have played no tests
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Don't know how they agree on scheduling. Absurd.

    Cricket in May/June in the subcontinent is plain cruel conditions for the players.

    Good to see Harby back in the test squad. Missed out on some freebie wickets in the last few years given the Indian pitches.

    Not really tbf. He played 3 games at home since being dropped initially in England and didn't outperform (or even do that well) the others at all.

    One test is better than nothing I suppose, at least we get to see if Harby has anything to offer on at international level, would be great with a lot of sc series coming up for India to have another spinning option.

    He was not doing that consistently for the last 12 years he was a regular in the side, sure he would have done it in the last 2.

    If it is a draw in the test, India drops back to no7 in the rankings and NZ returns to its rightful place at no3.

    I hope Mominul bats for 3 days and breaks Lara's record.
    zorax and honestbharani like this.

    They will never realize that Rubel is no good in longer version. He is the only change in the Test squad announced today.

    Bangladesh Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Shuvagata Hom, Taijul Islam, Mohammad Shahid, Rubel Hossain, Jubair Hossain, Litton Das, Abul Hasan.

    The context in which he was picked was hardly ideal tbh, "Oh look, England can't play spin, lets throw Bhajji in there too for lolz", " oh Harby always does well against Aus, lets give him a go, Aussies suck anyways lol". Can't just pick and drop at random, Harbhajan has always been a confidence bowler anyways, not the guy who will bowl well if he feels he's gonna get the boot the next test.

    My point is that the kind of pitches India has produced since 2011 WI series have been largely TYPICAL Indian wickets that aid spin, which is different from that lame 07-10 period where India produced at least 1 or 2 highway wickets everytime someone toured, giving overseas teams a false sense of security of being able to play spin on the SC, and then those same teams had a cry when they came across pitches that actually turned.

    You can't honestly tell me that Harby wouldn't have taken a bagful against Windies (5 tests since 2011) and done reasonably well against Aus/NZ/England if given a proper go. I'm not trying to suggest that he's better than Ashwin/other spinners that have played in the last few years, but Harby's "decline" is as much to do with the kind of pitches he played on as the lack of flight and "dart" bowling that everyone uses criticize.

    Lets also not forget that Harby had successful tours to NZ and SA during India's #1 period.
