*Official* Bangladesh in New Zealand 2016/2017

Too early for the thread but half of the Bangladesh squad is already on their way to Australia for preparation of the series. It's a good initiative taken by BCB along with Cricket Australia permitting us for conditioning there well ahead of the series. Also BD is scheduled to play some practice matches in Sydney. Good gesture overall.

Squad for the preparation camp in Sydney :Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmud Ullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shabbir Rahaman, Soumya Sarker, Mosaddek Hossain Saikot, Nurul Hassan Sohan, Mehedi Hasan Miraj, Shuvagata Hom, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Taijul Islam, Masrafe Bin Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Shuvashish Roy, Ebadat Hossain, Tanbir Haydar, Rubel Hossain, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Mehedi Hasan Maruf

Shafiul and Shahid both are injured. Mustafiz is expected to be fit. Not sure whats Hom and Kamrul still doing in the squad. Ebadat Hossain without any exposure is straight into national team from a pacer hunt competition just because he can bowl fast. So huge question marks on him and Shubhashish is another mediocre domestic bully.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing
I think it's time to debut some new blood and some old hands ahead of the SA series and home CH leg.

ODI:
1. M Guptill
2. T Latham+
3. K Williamson*
4. M Chapman
5. T Bruce
6. J Neesham
7. C de Grandhomme
8. M Santner
9. T Southee
10. M Henry
11. T Boult

12. T Seifert
13. S Rance
14. E Nuttall
15. T Astle

Test:

1. J Raval
2. T Latham
3. K Williamson
4. R Taylor (am I right in thinking he's back in time for the Tests?) If not, Young to 4 and Bruce in at 6 with Watling or de Grandhomme at 5
5. W Young
6. C de Grandhomme
7. BJ Watling+
8. M Santner/T Astle
9. N Wagner
10. T Southee
11. T Boult
 

Flem274*

123/5
Would like to see Chapman and Bruce around the limited overs squads. Only change I'd make is playing less intentrounders per game. Last nights XI relied too heavily on the top three to get through to the 35th over. I wouldn't dump Watling yet either considering he was one of many disappointments, and he has played well in ODIs before this three match tenure. I'd also keep Ferguson around. He showed some spark against the best in the world in their own backyard.

Test match wise I'm thinking

Latham
Raval
Kane
Ross
Watling(wk)
Lord Colin/Jimmy/Corey/Other Lord Colin/Ellis because Lord Colin worked
Santa
Henry/Milne/Ferguson (team misses 150kph, or just spam swing)
Southee
Wagner
Boult

or the more conventional...

Latham
Raval
Kane
Ross
Munro/Young/Bruce
Lord Colin/Jimmy/you get the idea
Watling
Santa
Wagner
Southee
Boult

I feel bad for Nicholls. A lot to like about his application and some of the knocks he's played in tough circumstances and no way does he deserve to get the excessive criticism he gets (new Wagner in that respect) but he's a bit shot right now. Needs to go back to Canterbury.

If Watling is to play ODIs he needs to bat top 4, 5 at a minimum. Isn't a slogger and constructs his innings similar to Ross Taylor and Latham to some extent. Latham played pretty well last night but if he doesn't pull out a decent performance soon then I'd advocate Watling opening as an anchor and someone who can bat through. Obviously this is based on the fact we need a WK and there's possibly no one else we can pick who isn't ready (Seifert et al) or is horribly out of form - which is Ronchi.

Though my Otago bias wouldn't mind seeing de Boorder have a go.

Re Nicholls: if we want application and grit but ultimately little output, see Flynn, Daniel.

I don't mean to underrate Bangladesh, but in NZ conditions, I don't think we need 4 specialist seamers like your first side suggests. Initially I had left CdG out on this basis and thought 6 specialist bats would be a go but he doesn't deserve a dropping tbf.

Easy 3-0 victory for Bangladesh in ODIs. Bowling attack of Fizz, Mashrafe, Taskin and Shakib is of world class standard. The Bangladesh ODI team is the most experienced of all teams as of today: they have more than a 1000 ODI games between them under their belt.

Agree with this 100%. Needs to go now, but I hope the door stays ajar for him.

Has Nicholls' really received excessive criticism outside people rightly saying he's not up to the mark currently?

You should put money on them then, they'll being paying some great odds.

Bangladesh are now a competitive home side, but I am expecting they'll get their usual humiliating toweling over here, across all forms.

Especially with NZ licking their wounds after that embarrassment in Australia. If that doesn't sharpen their pencils, nothing will.

I remember them pushing us hard in the World Cup game at Hamilton - Mahmudullah scored a sensational ton, and it took a century from Gup to get us home. I think we're absolutely the favourites to win the series, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's close.

They did, but I also think that was our worst hit-out of that WC (barring the final). Pretty sure that was the game we played McClenaghan & he was all over the shop & then we inexplicably gifted many soft wickets in the run chase. I recall McCullum even saying afterwards they had a real off-day and needed that kick up the behind

There's games the opposition don't allow you to play well, and ones where you just don't turn up, that was the latter for NZ.

awta. At least the test side only has one gaping hole at number 5*, as opposed to the ODI side that has problems all through 5-8.

* maybe 6 too if Neesham is injured, otherwise he is first choice there

Would like to see Bangladesh compete reasonably well. I hope they win at least one limited overs game and don't lose the Test series 2-0, that would be a decent showing. I could see many of their players struggling to adapt, but let's see.

Finally some away Tests for Bangladesh.

ODI's should be interesting. Tests look a pretty obvious 2-0 though barring rain.

Or maybe Bangladesh just played well? From memory Bangladesh were 8 for 1 after 7 overs of Boult and Southee in absolutely helpful swinging conditions. They got through that, and attacked well later on. Guptill was also plumb lbw early on (Not reviewed) and went on to score a century.

NZ are being really overrated here now. On the basis of what I'm not sure, considering their latest limp display against Australia.

Yeah, the way Bangladesh is preparing for the series along with their WC suggests to me that they'll definitely be competetive in the ODIs

Come downs to Guptill v Fizzy imo
