    Just because Mashrafe is 23 doesn't mean he's a prospect, he's been around for ages now.

    And yes, he's a decent bowler but to call him the leading ODI wicket-taker for 2006 is utterly laughable, given that no Bangladesh game merits ODI status, never mind Bermuda and Canada games.

    Uh-uh, it ain't.

    And forgive me for not being too bothered about the prospect of being slapped by someone in the US of A...

    I do have a clue what I'm about, and Bermuda and Canada were simply 2 names pulled from thin-air - fact is, Bangladesh have played a hell of a lot of fellow substandard teams recently - and for such games to be classed "ODI" is even more ludicrous than Bangladesh-New Zealand being classed such.

    Well seeing as you never stop posting about things you DON'T know about, it's hardly surprising.

    Richard, we know what your feelings are and we don't want to hear them again. If you haven't got anything constructive to say, don't say anything.

    Seriously, you're no better than Rodgie.

    In other news...I'd have the following squad for the World Cup

    Shahriah Nafees Ahmed
    Rajin Saleh
    Aftab Ahmed
    Mohammad Ashraful
    Farhad Reza
    Saqibal Hasan
    *Habibul Bashar
    +Mushfiqur Rahim
    +Khaled Mashud
    Mohammad Rafique
    Abdur Razzaq
    Mashrafe Mortaza
    Syed Rasel
    Shahadat Hossain
    Mohammad Sharif

    Shame I couldn't find a place for Javed, Tamim, Mehrab Jnr and Rana. I don't see too much potential in the pace department. Having seen Dollar live I don't think he's that great personally. Whatever happened to Shafaq?
    IMO Javed almost certainly won't go, Tamim would be a wild card, Mehrab shouldn't go but probably will, and Rana hasn't been anywhere near the national team for the past year. Can't comment on Dollar - never seen him play. Shafaq is still in the big picture for Bangladesh A.

    That looks a pretty strong squad above, but I think Mehrab will get the nod over Sharif. TBH I'd rather have Tamim than both of them though.

    I picked Sharif because of the obvious lack of quality fast bowling options. You seriously can't go into the WC with only Mashrafe, Shahadat and Rasel. People could argue Farhad Reza but he's really just a Mahmud gentle medium I thought. Having said that Sharif's lost a bit of pace since he last played international cricket.
    Stedders' Supported XI (in batting order)
    NJ Kruger, *SM Katich, LA Carseldine, MEK Hussey, Mohammad Ashraful, NT Broom, AA Noffke, +Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza, DE Bollinger, WAP Mendis.

    Just because he's been around for a while doesn't mean he's not still young and has plenty of scope to improve.

    And, the fact is that he took more wickets in games with ODI status than anyone else in 2006, therefore calling him the leading ODI wicket-taker for 2006 is not utterly laughable. It is correct. You having some vendetta against the smaller countries' rights to play games does not change facts.

    I just think that seeing as we haven't really got any seamers beyond Mashrafe and Shahadat, we may as well play three spinners, even on a non-turning wicket. Reza is not much better than Aftab in my books. Tamim offers something almost completely different.

    After today's events, it would probably be unfair to call Tamim a 'wildcard'. I reckon he'll go to Zimbabwe, and unless he fails there, to the World Cup.
