Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladesh captain, has expressed his shock at not being consulted by the chief selector Faruque Ahmed before the 15-man squad for the upcoming Asia Cup was picked.

"It [Bangladesh's Asia Cup squad] is not a subject that I am happy about," Mushfiqur said. "I have to play with the team I am given. It is the selectors' duty to pick the 15-man squad. But I am unhappy that the selectors didn't consult me before making the team. In that sense, I am shocked. I wasn't aware of the inclusions and the exclusions."

The general practice has been for the selection committee to pick the squad and for the captain and coach to have a final say on the playing XI. In both cases, the selectors and the management have usually consulted each other whenever necessary, with varying degree.

According to Mushfiqur, however, Faruque did not have a word with him regarding this particular squad, which was announced a few hours after Bangladesh's six-wicket loss against Sri Lanka in the third ODI in Mirpur on Saturday.

"This is the first time such a thing has happened. I expected him to call me ahead of squad selection for the Asia Cup," he said. "Whether he would have taken my opinion was a different matter, I expected him to talk to me about it."

Mahmudullah, Shafiul Islam and the injured Tamim Iqbal, who were in the ODI squad against Sri Lanka, made way for Imrul Kayes, Ziaur Rahman and Abdur Razzak. Imrul scored a maiden Test century recently upon returning to the side after two years, while Ziaur has finally found form in domestic cricket. Razzak is expected to remain as one of Bangladesh's first-choice spinners.

Tamim's neck strain has kept him out of the tournament while Mahmudullah has made just six runs in the three ODIs against Sri Lanka. However, ESPNcricinfo understands that Mushfiqur was mainly unhappy with the exclusion of the seamer Shafiul, who played the third ODI against Sri Lanka.

Some directors at the BCB have already noticed a difficult relationship between Mushfiqur and the new chief selector. One of them said that rather than going public, the captain could have discussed the matter internally.

"I think there is a gap between these two that needs to be reduced. Mushfiqur could have easily held an open discussion with BCB's cricket operations chairman Akram Khan," a BCB director requesting anonymity, said.

Nonetheless, Mushfiqur said that he was looking forward to working with the team despite the way things had gone down.

"He (Faruque) has returned after a long time, so his thinking might not match ours. It could also be miscommunication, Mushfiqur said. "Our bonding will be better the more we talk and work with each other.

"I think any captain deserves to know about the team. I am not aware why it happened in this way. I wish the 15 players well. We will play our best cricket with these players."

Faruque is correct - he need not consult the coach or captain, he needs to select the best 15 which he has done.

The earlier Bangladesh get rid of Mushfiqur and Jurgensen the better it will be for them.

Calm down folks, deep down in your heart you all know India's gonnna win this cup... Dont beleive me? watch tomorrow's match to see it yourself.

Posted by PPD123 on (February 24, 2014, 22:43 GMT)

Good that Mushfiqur has gone on the front foot with his protest against the way the team was selected. Given that Tamim iqbal and Shafiul islam are out, and the BCB had hit their foot with an axe by suspending Shakib al Hasan for behavioral issues for the 1st 2 ODIs... Bdesh have no chance in hell to reach the finals.. forget about winning. Mushi will atleast have an exit door and enough of an excuse.... Bdesh cricket is going no where with all these unnecessary controversies....

@Joe Thompson: you are right. BD does not have amla, kohli or waquar or bond. They have to be content with what they have. BD batsmen used to average less than 30. Now a few are slowly approaching 35 or even 40. Somehow batting talent is decent (there is a lack of composure at times). There are decent spinners. BD does not have good quicks, even for ODI. In one or two matches where Rubel, or Mashrafe or Shafiul bowled well, BD looked a decent team. When other teams have bowlers who can deliver inswing, outswing, bouncer, yorkers with good pace (some at 150 k speed) and accuracy, BD quicks are slower or have less arsenals and have less speed or accuracy. India has far better pace bowlers than BD. Afganistan might exploit their bowling advtanges over BD.

From the recent report it seems that Faruk has done enough to create fraction in Bangladesh team. This guy have created so many trouble in past and he is still doing this. Bangladesh was doing great when Faruk was not in the scene and since he joined he has created trouble, Just before Asia Cup and T20 WC all these is unacceptable

Posted by AbdulMohamad731 on (February 24, 2014, 21:06 GMT)

Mushfiqur comments are shocking and disappointing, BCB must look for another captain.

First he criticised Al Amin, then spoke of loosing to Afghanistan and now against Faruqe Ahmed and BCB.

Firs concentrate on your own performance.

Posted by r0ketman on (February 24, 2014, 15:38 GMT)

@Joe Thompson: There has been less than 40 players in 40 year ODI history who have average more than 40 runs after playing more than 40+ innings. One of the greatest batsmen of this era Sanga average barely over 40 (40.3 to be exact), Mahela Averages well below that. In ODIs even less number of bowlers averaged less than 25 with the Ball, people who averaged more than 25 includes Warne, Imran Khan, Mitchell Johnson, and Dale Steyn. There is not a single Indian bowler with less than 25 Average in ODIs playing more than 40 inn. Since you posted this on a forum on ODIs, I am not sure what your point is.

I am not sure why such a simple task he expected from the selection committee ended up such a mixed feedback from all the writers here. In any given organization the captain and coach both must know who are they going to work with. Just like when an aircraft is flown by its captain the captain gets notified about the crew before flying.

I believe people must be appreciated about his sound concern as BCB needs to fixed these things as they are part of the world sporting organization.

It was indeed imprudent for Mushi to vent his frustration to the public, thereby, create more pressure upon himself and the playing bunch at this close proximity of the tournament. While I agree with the most that consulting with the Captain may not have mattered much in the final team, it is customary, prudent and professional that both Captain and Coach be consulted before finalization. The team needs to be cohesive, cooperative and complete in their way of getting the right combination for the captain and the players. The selectors' job should be picking the right players, as well as, making sure both the captain and coach feel comfortable with them. The later are the ones doing the real job in the field. Thus, I strongly support the theme that the final saying would be from the Captain and the Coach after the selectors present their initial takes. The later should better be more of a advisory or recommending role rather than manifestation of an autocracy that is unhelpful to all.

I agree that mahamudullah is having poor time with the bat.but he deservs a chance atlest in the squad.in last asia cup mahamudullah played vital roll in india and srilanka win.so i think its not fear to drop him.

Posted by AbdulMohamad731 on (February 24, 2014, 11:04 GMT)

Selectors have selected a fair except for Razzaq and Rubel Hossain who are always expensive.

Mushfiq should concentrate on his own performances as selectors are not bound to consult captain.

Posted by naimurchowdhury32 on (February 24, 2014, 11:01 GMT)

As per the procedure, captain should be out of selection process as it could cause favoritism.

Faruque Ahmed is right in not consulting Mushfiq, selectors must select best possible players rather than captain's favorite players.

Mushfiq should concentrate on performance rather than selection matters.

Posted by anver777 on (February 24, 2014, 9:34 GMT)

I totally agree with Mushfiqur... as a practice a captain should be consulted before a selection....

Posted by BanglaBandhu on (February 24, 2014, 9:16 GMT)

First things first, selectors should have consulted with Mushi and coach first. Mushi probably made a public statement in order to prevent this type of thing EVER happening again.

Regarding Bangladesh batting, yes the Sri Lanka series in Bangladesh was a whitewash. However if you add the previous SL series in Sri Lanka, Zim Series, West Indies Series and NZ Series, then you get a different picture.

Even in the last Series both T20s were last ball thrillers, and having Sri Lanka 68/8 in the first ODI was unbelievable. Also lets appreciate the emergence of Mominul and to a lesser extent Shamsur and Gazi. These three were not around during the last Asia Cup.

Winning the Asia cup would be amazing but even if Bangladesh play good competitive cricket against the opposition, that would be enough to rebuild their confidence for the ICC World T20.

The real challenge for BD players is AFG Team, they have to beat them comprehensively to show the world that they bleongs to upper tier and their test status was not a fluke and they need some time and proper coaching!!! However if they are defeated even by AFG then the whole BD Team, Management and Fans should stop calling their team as Tigers!!! First start winning, then call yourself Tigers!!! BD is a good team with good players but I believe they and their fans are over the moon about themselves!! Watch out for this very crucial match!!

Posted by   on (February 24, 2014, 7:51 GMT)

it doesn't matter if selectors consults mushfiqur or not because they know that the result will be the same,Bangladesh losing all the matches.

Posted by   on (February 24, 2014, 7:50 GMT)

musfiqur should be consulted .....it has been in india

Posted by ATtaraya on (February 24, 2014, 7:36 GMT)

I don't know what is he trying to prove....but to me this is a excuse....the BD captain surrendered even before the battle begins....at least give a fight what you have now....than going for press for everything.....

Posted by naimurchowdhury32 on (February 24, 2014, 7:19 GMT)

Mushfiqur should first concentrate on performance rather than trying to get his players in team.

Selectors have done the right job and do not need to consult him for selection.

Posted by   on (February 24, 2014, 6:43 GMT)

dunno man.i am already getting a bad feeling before the series even taking place.bd players are already low in confidence and on top of that fans' confidence is even lower.these prematch issues are getting a too much attention.btw so many non bd fans here are commenting which means other fans are keeping an aye on bd players which shows something in their heart is bothering about bd.maybe its the past feeling of losing the game against this "minnow" bd.lol

Posted by AbdulMohamad731 on (February 24, 2014, 6:25 GMT)

Very poor comment by the captain who wants only his on players.

Captain should not interfere in selection matters. Mushfiq is openly complaining about BCB.

Posted by British_North_America on (February 24, 2014, 6:11 GMT)

name one player Mushfiq who does not deserve the chance and still is in team.Do not say Mahmudullah should be included.

Posted by TNAmarkFromIndia on (February 24, 2014, 5:43 GMT)

At least Mushfiqur now has an excuse for losing every match in the Asia Cup.

Posted by timtom on (February 24, 2014, 4:41 GMT)

Shocked Really !!!!! So far there are no results to show when Mushfiqur had a call in team selection including the concluded ODI series.. So why crib when selectors think the other way. Again making public statement against the board. If not happy just resign captaincy sure no body is forcing.. Many Bangla payers think they are above the game... Most of them are undisciplined lot and have taken their places for granted...Reign discipline and results will show...

Posted by Nasim_Ahmed on (February 24, 2014, 4:23 GMT)

@ Tashfiq Haider: Spot on bro. Sangakkara said it all after 2nd ODI "No secret, just good focus, working hard in the nets. Keeping fit" Can't agree more with @ Joe Thompson. Yeah, I was privileged to watch SA vs Aus last day, the competition was so intense and class was overflowing all along. 'The strange reason' your were searching for, I suppose, lies with the gap in players' training (50%), media (30%), BCB (15%) and us fans (5%). BCB can start the correction process by removing 'cricket pundits' like those two BD commentators from BD cricket arena...;) My fellow countrymen, before you start questioning my patriotism, have you noticed our critics' approach getting more rational (and persevering enough to go through our players' profiles) than bullying day by day? It's a subtle acknowledgement of our tigers achievement over last two years. Let's just relax and hope for the best! Go TIGERS!!!

Posted by ashqarmahi on (February 24, 2014, 4:16 GMT)

Dear Mushfiq, You need to win....put your concentration on the game...we played without shakib and tamim before and we won...so thats not a big deal...concentrate...!!

Posted by golamsarwar on (February 24, 2014, 2:59 GMT)

Mushi, what you have done! Look some high profile captains how they conduct with the press. Look back to Imran Khan Era how he had managed his team and front office. Obviously you made a big mistake and team will suffer for it. It is time to put some more issues and solves all together for the better interest of BD cricket. TEAM is going through with turmoil now. So put few wins for your team to get back on track and that probably the best way to establishing your captaincy. Good luck buddy.

Posted by Ramansilva on (February 24, 2014, 2:55 GMT)

Bangladesh has only one international level cricketer. The rest are mediocre and club level cricketers. Therefore, it does not mattter whether selectors gave Tom, Dick and Harry to the captain or captain selected Harry, Tom and Dick.

Posted by   on (February 24, 2014, 2:04 GMT)

No one can replace Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.Matter closed.

Posted by snbirdi on (February 24, 2014, 1:18 GMT)

I have an idea. Try resigning from captaincy again. See if that'll help.

Posted by   on (February 24, 2014, 0:02 GMT)

@Joe Thompson: this is how we roll... one thing you need to remember, Bangladeshi current players are the best player Bangladesh ever had. current administration or selectors were not better player than current one. so we can't be like AUS or SA. We need to brilliant player and brilliant administration at the same time. Which we cant generate, only time can give us that.

Well done mushi!!!

Posted by mshyder on (February 23, 2014, 22:16 GMT)

I am extremely interested in the match between BD and Afghanistan. If Afghanistan can beat them, that will show the true quality of BD team.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 21:40 GMT)

This is not a good thinking from the selectors. It might hamper the performance of the captain and the players as well.

Posted by siponus2007 on (February 23, 2014, 20:37 GMT)

well said musfiq we will always be with u , their was no reason to dropped mahmuduallah cz his bowling was very effective . really selection , bangladesh saki , tamim , mahmudullah has been changed after a long time , and i don't think its a good move by bcd selectors

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 20:30 GMT)

I actually don't see the big deal here. The squad looks fine. Who else would he have included/dropped. As a Bangladeshi I only see this as imminent damage control. No tamim okay fine, Shakib willl come eventually. Anamul, Shamsur and mominul have ALL performed better then Tamim so its not a loss. Imrul might even get a chance in this format. Al-amin, mashrafe, gazi, and razzack for bowling not so unusual either. Stop complaining please, just try your best with whoever you have.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 19:56 GMT)

Thompson's comment about Nasir is sadly true. He was emerging as the Tiger's ' Mr. Dependable'. But of late he has done little to justify that lofty title. Its only a matter of time before he will be dropped just as Mahmudullah was. Selectors have little patience with non-performers. Mushy is too quick to hog the spotlight. It was immature of him to voice his displeasure (over slection) in public to the media. Talk it over behind closed doors. Crucial decisions are always made in private, behind closed doors. That's how the big boys play.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 19:36 GMT)

I agree Mushy should have raised his concerns in private. This will only increase the rift between him and the selectors. The team appears to be reeling from one crisis to another. I fear for the effect that it will have on our performance. India should not be taken lightly at all. The batsmen will kill our mediocre quicks; Shami will be a handful for our 'quick-worried' batters. If they found the 'ordinary' Mathews unplayable then Shami (who had a great overseas tour against quality opposition) will eat them alive. A team with such a careless team spirit can't get very far. They should learn to play FOR the team and not for themselves only. Its selfishness that's destroying the side.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 18:52 GMT)

whoever taking India so lightly needs to calm the heck down. India is most favorite to win Asia cup if not the only favorite. Sri Lanka is on losing streak to India as we look up the match records from last many years. and Pakistan may be find difficult to stop rolling Indians if their bowlers find hard to pick quick wickets early at start. and for bangla people , we know you have a talented growing team but its not likely your bowlers can deal with very aggressive Indian batsmen. well anyways good luck to everyone , who knows I might be wrong in predicting the fixtures results coz its too early to state anything at this very time period

Posted by TheKeeper on (February 23, 2014, 18:30 GMT)

After watching all the games in the just concluded BAN v SL series I'm quite convinced that BAN will lose all, if not most, of their upcoming matches in the Asia Cup. I say this because they are honestly a very ordinary bunch of players - looking through their team/individual stats on Cricinfo reveals a rather ordinary team. Like Joe Thompson's comment below says, "they do not even have 1 batsman that averages over 40 (subject to 40 innings), they don't have 1 bowler that averages below 25 in any form and they have a very casual fielding unit and are also complacent."

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 18:30 GMT)

@Bengal - Nasir Hossain average is slowly dipping. Also if you bothered to read my comment carefully, I said minimum of 40 innings because any batsman can easily have a fantastic start to their career and then suddenly dip and that is sadly the case for Nasir and many Bangladeshi players for some strange reason. Best players are consistent but Bangladesh has never been consistent hence one of their main problems in downfall. The sad thing is that Sri Lanka helped Bangladesh in showing how to play sensible Cricket but as your captain rightfully pointed out, the team are slow learners and at this highest level is unacceptable. I want Bangladesh to do well but this overconfidence from players, fans even BD commentators and disrespecting good teams like Sri Lanka was bound to catch up on Bangladesh Cricket. I hope Bangladesh players are watching the brilliant test series between SA and Aus so they can see how to really play Cricket and how far behind they really are from such teams.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 18:23 GMT)

Smart guy. If he would have said this after Asia cup was over, it would have been an excuse, but i he will have a reason, if Bangladesh goes on to loose in the Asia cup.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 18:12 GMT)

Well Said Mushfiqur We Love You Dear .. Hope We will win against India Because We Have Ability To win.. We Believe Our Tigers ... Go Tiger We Always With You.. I love MY Cricket team.. We want to win Asia CUP 2014.. Pray For Our Cricket Team.. Thanks

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 18:02 GMT)

Proof Mushfiqur lacks intelligence. He could have said this after losing all the games in the Asia cup. Would have looked better, as losing for a reason always does

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 17:59 GMT)

Fair call from Mushi, captain should be aware of the squad being pick and should be told the reason for picking/dropping a player in the squad. But show some maturity buddy, you are not a teenager anymore. You are a senior player and captain of the side. Still young but having played for 3-4 years should have taught you enough. You should not have spoken openly because this put chief selector in bad light and give bad impression to outside world. And bad luck for losing out on Tamim & Shakib. Just when I was thinking that BD is getting better, you lost 2 critical players. Concentrate more on the team and try to get better than last AC performance. Best wishes from an Indian fan

Posted by Dhutugemunu on (February 23, 2014, 17:52 GMT)

@ bengal_tiger_roars; Read Joe Thompson's comment carefully. Don't reply blindly to protect BD players or team. BD does not have a batsmen with 40+ average who at least played 40 innings.

Posted by bengal_tiger_roars on (February 23, 2014, 17:22 GMT)

@Joe Thompson u need to check Nasir Hossain's criinfo profile dude for 40+ avg in both test & ODI form Bangladesh

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 16:46 GMT)

Bangladesh will lose every match in this asia cup,even against afghanistan.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 16:35 GMT)

bangaladesh should focus for d match against afganistan ....if they loose that.....which they will....coz afganistan z a very gud team.....u should feel 4 the fans..

Posted by Prabhash1985 on (February 23, 2014, 16:24 GMT)

Can't you solve your problems offline? Do you have to come to media all the time? It's very unprofessional Mushfiqur. Sorry to say that, but you are behaving like a child.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 16:08 GMT)

right now with the absence of Shakib and Tamim the team looks very weak and there is a bleak chance of performing well in the 1st game itself. Its good to see Mushy raising his voice...usually BD players dont speak up and they get they dont deserve at the first place....anyways in Tigers I trust...I believe good times are coming

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 16:02 GMT)

This is gonna make things worse after a dismal performance against Sri Lanka. Surely it will hamper the team's morale as they are already without their top two players. What they need at this moment is strong bonding between the players of the squad if they expect to gain anything from Asia Cup!

Posted by Zakirali on (February 23, 2014, 16:00 GMT)

Time for the bd to focus on how to get the best out of all the players involve.....

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 15:47 GMT)

Doesn't really matter who Bangladesh pick to be honest. They at the moment do not possess any top quality players and really question the attitude of many of the Bangladesh players because their body language in the Sri Lanka series showed that they do not care for the fans and no appetite to perform. To break my argument further, they do not even have 1 batsman that averages over 40 (subject to 40 innings), they don't have 1 bowler that averages below 25 in any form and they have a very casual fielding unit and are also complacent.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 15:37 GMT)

It is the captain who should be satisfied with the selection of the team even though he is not the decision maker. The selector should inform the captain about the team and appraise him very formally and officially. Mr. Faruq is linked with BD cricket history and a gentle manArbitrary decision is not beneficial for the end result.

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 15:31 GMT)

BD lost asia cup Best player.

Is he looking for scapegoat before battle begins

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 15:22 GMT)

Mushfiq you should concentrate more on cricket. But i am sorry that you are talking little more to press regarding selection, icc etc etc. Be positive and do not do anything that can hamper the concentration and focus. Work hard and be patient,

Posted by British_North_America on (February 23, 2014, 15:15 GMT)

That could lead to inclusion of Mahmudullah.

Posted by Nasim_Ahmed on (February 23, 2014, 15:01 GMT)

Here we go again... Nothing's changed in Bangladesh cricket. Feeling sorry for Mushfiq... It has been a wonder how Bangladesh came off in the last two years really. I see a disappointing Asia Cup coming, then captain/ coach made the scapegoats, team again starting from scratch...

Posted by ASM_Ashraful_Huq on (February 23, 2014, 14:57 GMT)

It's good to share with the captain before decision as well as to discuss earlier before selection. Sometimes, you need to play fair and such way of working is normal in that case here. I'm sure Mr. Mushfiq will always do favour for Mr. Mahmudullah Riad. We've seen him to do lot for this person which isn't fair for the country. In a result, brilliance like Shamsur or Muminul had to wait for long time to enter into the team. In any format of game, Mahmudullah is totally unfit for Bangladesh. He shouldn't be tried in future also.

Posted by NokshiKatha on (February 23, 2014, 14:53 GMT)

Very bad. Selector should have talked with mushi.

Posted by ahmedfaysal on (February 23, 2014, 14:51 GMT)

Farukh should discuss the matter before publishing the team. I think the team more or less ok except ziaur rahman. In place of him farhad reza should have given a chance because he was the highest wicket taker in dhaka premeire league. He made some run too. Zia is also in good form in ncl. But i would prefer farhad. Zia should not be in the first xi if we play jenuine pacer. We can play him as a second pacer behind mashrafe. Then we can have a very strong batting line up. Then we can chase any target. That's the way to go i think.

Posted by Baundele on (February 23, 2014, 14:51 GMT)

It is usually a good practice to discuss with the captain regarding the team selection. However, it is not a formal duty of the Bangladeshi captain, and therefore, Mushy should not have said any word about it in public. There is no doubt that all the selected 15 players are good enough to play for Bangladesh. I do not see any proven better option is left out. So, Mushy's going public will be detrimental for the team's morale. Some players might think like unwanted by the captain.

Posted by Damian123 on (February 23, 2014, 14:44 GMT)

BD are no pushovers in their own conditions but they have a long way to go to in proper international cricket!

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 14:38 GMT)

Already Faruque Ahmed had a bad start to this tenure and this guy is repeating the same mistakes he was doing before. at least sumon and nannu bhai should know. C'mon don't create problems Mr. Selector. Mushy had a right to know

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 14:28 GMT)

this is bad I dont know what BD selectors have in mind

Posted by   on (February 23, 2014, 14:25 GMT)

it`s really shock......Mushi is one of the best captain in Bangladesh.i think BCB should talk to Mussi Before announced 15-man squad
