    What are the odds that Nafees gets a game in the starting XI, considering he didn't feature much against NZ and Zim?

    Ash selected again, hopefully, hopefully he'll come good. It's unlikely but not impossible.

    I don't think there is much wrong with Raqibul in the top 4. He can build an innings well.

    No reserve keeper isn't a worry because a) It's extremely unlikely Rahim would be dropped for Jahrulal based on form and b) If Rahim gets injured, they have the luxury of being able to fly in a replacement on short notice.

    The XI we'll probably see is:

    Tamim
    Kayes/Siddique
    Ash
    Raqibul
    Shakib (*)
    Rahim (+)
    Naeem
    Shuvo
    Razzaq
    Shaiful
    Rubel

    Mahmadullah misses out to make room for Ash. Kayes AND Siddique cannot fit in the lineup either, especially since Shuvo has been bowling so well and the Left Arm Spin Trident of Death (Shuvo/Razzaq/Shakib) has been working so well of late. Naeem gets in because Shakib is a fan of him, he's a good fielder, and is more capable of the late-innings cameo that Mahmadullah.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Rahim shuffle up to 4 and Raqibul to 3, with Ash in the lower order either. Wonder if they would experiment with that, Siddons seems quite happy playing each player in their role - the batsmen bat in the top order and the allrounders lower down.

    Naeem only knows how to bowl against New Zealand though. I don't know how comfortable I'd be with him as the fifth bowler, particularly when no Riyad () to back him up.

    Ashraful has been bowling a lot lately though, good for 5 overs against anyone tbh.

    Naeem and Ash are backups incase the seamers are getting carted and you can't rely on them for their full 20. Or y'know, if spinners are having a particularly good day.

    Shuvo - Razzak - Shakib has been such a fantastic combination recently, I can't see them wanting to break it up. Mahmadullah is a better choice over Naeem you could say, he is a better batsman and probably more reliable as a bowler. But Shakib likes Naeem because he's a good fielder, and is better at hitting out at the end than Mahmadullah. And because Shakib is quickly turning into BD's Vettori, his word will count for a lot.

    I would have ashraful at 7 for his hitting ability and powerplay.

    .....

    It all boils down to either one of Nafees or Shuvo getting the cut. The coaches, selectors and captain don't want to break the Imrul-Tamim opening pair.

    Mahmudullah is a consolidator who can hit once he is nicely settled in. A better batsmen, an average bowler. Naeem in comparison to Mahmudullah is a better bowler but average batsmen, who though has the ability to hit it BIG if the situation demands (and he decides to wake up from his slumber)!

    Rubel and Shafiul are most likely going to spearhead the pace attack on almost all the matches.

    Fielding coach Julian Fountain is a huge fan of Naeem and Shuvo, bowling coach Ian Pont has stated that Shafiul is the cleverest of the pacers lot and can now seem the ball both ways better than the other two, Rubel's reverse swing has improved and Nazmul has improved his cutters. And all their pace has increased by 5+ kph !

    So that is that! It is shameful to think though how selfish Mashrafe has become through all this...he is not only irking the media and fans, but taking it way too far by pretending to be the hero he is not anymore! Shameful indeed!

    If Ashraful is going to play it's have to be as an allrounder. I would be more comfortable with him at 7 than elsewhere, Bangladesh have a real problem with acceleration in the final overs and he can be used there at least until he re-discovers some form. Mahmudullah is another option.

    Concered about the lack of variety in Shakib, Razzak and Shuvo bowling 25-30 overs but it's worked, so I'll go with it. I've been impressed by Nafees, can't help but feel he's worth backing.

    Tamim Iqbal, Shahriar Nafees, Junaid Siddique, Raqibul Hasan, Shakib Ul Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammed Ashraful/Mahmudullah, Shurawadi Shuvo, Adbur Razzaq, Shfiul Islam, Rubel Hossain.

    Sounds very encouraging, especially the bolded part.

    Rubel certainly has the kind of action that you would associate with reverse swing, with his slingy-style. The improvement in pace is certainly Pont's forte, he's worked with and improved the pace of many decent bowlers in the world, something he specialises in. So it comes as no surprise that he's cranked up the pace of these Bangladeshi bowlers, who all had room for improvement and now they are able to work with a respected specialist bowling coach, the benefits will hopefully be there for all to see.

    Mahmudullah sucks at accelerating the innings, usually. He can do it but inexplicitly chooses not to, generally. If he's going to play I think he has to bat in the top five; six at the absolute lowest. Ashraful at seven doesn't sound like an awful idea, but I'd probably prefer Naeem.
