Sri Lanka in Bangladesh 2013-14 February 15, 2014

Mushfiqur returns for SL ODIs, Arafat Sunny picked

63

Mushfiqur Rahim will captain the Bangladesh team in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka after missing the two Twenty20s due to a finger injury. The other major change in the 15-member squad is the inclusion of Arafat Sunny as replacement for another left-arm spinner, the injured Abdur Razzak.

Razzak, the leading wicket-taker for Bangladesh in ODIs, injured his left hamstring during the first innings of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Chittagong two weeks ago, and still needs time to recover.

Sunny made his T20 debut for Bangladesh in the first game against Sri Lanka in Chittagong, and picked up three wickets. He was the most successful spinner in last season's Dhaka Premier Division, the country's List-A competition, with 29 wickets at an average of 19.13. The onus of filling the void in the spin attack in the series will also rest on Shakib Al Hasan and Sohag Gazi.

Anamul Haque, Naeem Islam and Shafiul Islam have also retained their places in the team despite not being a part of Test plans. Anamul batted well in the first T20 while Naeem has been in good touch in domestic cricket, and had made two fifties in the ODIs against New Zealand last year.

Shafiul Islam has recovered from a ligament tear in his ankle which he picked up ahead of the first ODI against New Zealand in October. He has replaced Ziaur Rahman, who has fallen out of favour with the selectors across all three formats.

Interestingly, the BCB has named Tamim Iqbal vice-captain for the ODIs, after he had quit the role ahead of the T20s last week.

Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal (vice-captain), Anamul Haque, Shamsur Rahman, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Sohag Gazi, Arafat Sunny, Mashrafe Mortaza, Rubel Hossain, Al-Amin Hossain, Naeem Islam, Shafiul Islam.

    Either Shakib or Mash should have been the VC, with a lot of on-field responsibility. Mushfiqur is a good leader, but needs help with on-field aspect of captaincy.

  • on February 16, 2014, 10:37 GMT

    poor captaincy by mathews, poor batting by chandimal. we are waiting for sangakkara 100

  • aeroboy.ae on February 16, 2014, 8:18 GMT

    I have to be candid that the weather seems very fruitful for the pacers. It will be a debacle to droop Tamim, I personally think his cadence of batting needs little practice. so don't castigate him. Shamsur is more capricious opener than Anamul now. So Shakib, Sunny, Mahmudullah are for spinner role & Mashrafee, Rubel and Al Amin will be recapitulated option for pace. So my squad is TAMIM, ANAMUL, NAEEM, MOMINUL, MUSHFIK, SHAKIB, NASIR, GAZI, MASHRAFEE, RUBEL, AL AMIN.

    For 1st odi : 1.Tamim 2.Shamsur 3.Anamul 4.Naeem 5.mushfiq 6.shakib 7.Nasir 8.Sunny 9.Mashrafe 10. Gazi 11.al-amin . solid but selectors should of include Nazmul Hossain but pretty good squad .

  • on February 16, 2014, 3:27 GMT

    Time to get rid of Tamim. I think he's outlived his time in the Tigers Den. His performance in the tests and T20s left a lot to be desired. Arafat Sunny and Anamul Haque really impressed. Hopefully they get a chance in the test formats as well.

  • on February 16, 2014, 1:11 GMT

    Bangladesh best possible playing according to the squad selected for the ODI series against Srilanka. 1. Tamim Iqbal 2. Shamsur Rahman 3. Anamul Haque 4. Naeem Islam 5. Shakib Al Hasan 6. Mushfiqur Rahim 7. Mahmudullah 8. Shohag Gazi 9. Mashrafe Murtaza 10. Rubel Hossain/Al Amin Hossain 11. Arafat Sunny Seven specialist batsman with four frontline spinners and two pace bowlers will be just fine to be a balanced Bangladesh playing XI. Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan and Shohag Gazis will be quite vital for the winning cause. Top order needs to set up a base for the middle and lower middle order batsman to launch at the tale end of the batting innings regardless Bangladesh bats first or second. Death bowling is a issue for Bangladesh but they needs mix slower deliveries with well directed bouncers and Yorkers in block holes. Low full tosses also sometimes works fine. Hopefully Bangladesh can grab the innings skill fully.

  • BangalWarriors on February 15, 2014, 23:34 GMT

    Squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal (vice-captain), Anamul Haque, Shamsur Rahman, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Arafat Sunny, Mashrafe Mortaza, Al-Amin Hossain,

  • bootlicker on February 15, 2014, 22:07 GMT

    BAN is a very good ODI side. Even though statistics doesn't reflect that they will be very competitive in the coming ODI series. It is evident that Mortaza captained the side really well in the T20s and both games were very close. It is so unfortunate that they were unable to recorded a win. It is my belief that he should have appointed as the captain for ODI leaving Rahim to do the tests. In contrast, I think SL is well settled. They were very ambitious in the last T20 and went for reverse sweeps without any respect and took BAN very easy but finally they had a difficult time to clinch the match. That shows their experience in the format, similarly they will clinch the ODI series but I guess they have to sweat for it.

  • on February 15, 2014, 21:45 GMT

    Whatever the team is SL will win the series 3-0. Bd might be able to beat nz, wi, eng or even aus consistently on this slow and low tracks but don't think they have the capability to beat SL, IND or Pak on these slow and low tracks. They will be able to give them a fight and might even win 1 off match but cannot beat them consistent basis. I saw some fans were saying ind lost to nz a team that Bangla-washed. It's a bad argument cos ind lost to nz in nz. I can assure if ban travell to nz bd will be humiliated.

  • NahianKhan on February 15, 2014, 20:56 GMT

    MY ODI XI : 1) Shamsur 2) Anamul 3) Mominul/Naeem 4) Musfiq 5) Sakib 6 Mahmuddullah 7) Nasir 8) Arafat 9) Mashrafee 10) Al amin 11) Rubel/Shaiful

    Please give rest Tamim.

  • Radwan_mars on February 15, 2014, 20:55 GMT

    Come on people why you all think bd should go with 3 pacers ? it should be 3 spinners. Our pacers are never that good compared to spinners and plus our pitches are spin supporting ones. Its a tough call surely for eleven but we should go with more depth batting & spin bowling all rounders can more help like shohag/mahmudullah They should go with 7 batsman(including shakib) i recon & if 6 than both shohag & mahmudullah should be in because sometime we loose more wickets quickly.

  • on February 15, 2014, 19:37 GMT

    My Bangladesh XI for the ODI would be 1. Anamul Haque 2. Shamsur Rahman 3. Naeem Islam 4. Mominul Haque 5. Shakib Al-Hasan 6. Mushfiqur Rahim 7. Nasir Hossain 8. Mashrafe Mortaza 9. Arafat Sunny 10. Al-Amin Hossain 11. Rubel Hossain

    Mushfiqur Rahim needs to use his bowlers and fielders well like Mashrafe Mortaza did in T20 apart from the last over of the second T20. Batters need to occupy the crease and build solid partnerships through good shot selection and rotating strike. The team as a whole need to keep wickets in hand for the last 10 overs onslaught. Bowlers need to contain runs by employing basic method of good line and length, especially in the death overs and then wickets will follow by opposition mistakes. Bowlers going out hell bent on picking up wickets has been our major problem, instead of adding pressure on the opposition, we have been letting them of the hook especially after an opposition wicket has fallen by trying to quickly get another.

  • Ain_EL_Sabet on February 15, 2014, 19:04 GMT

    Bd fans mark my word - Mashrafe will be too expensive (unless the pitch is very low scoring one like the last game) and make BD lose. I think Bd should not play 4 players anymore - mortaza , farhad , rubel , tamim. Parmanand Singh , I am happy to see a rare indian fan like you , usually they show lot of vitriol against BD even though BD people never had anything against indian or any other neighbor nation.

  • on February 15, 2014, 18:28 GMT

    Bangladesh selectors/team mangement needs to give tamim some rest to work on his physique. I remember a similar situation with Sarwan. He (Tamim) is just too unfit to play cricket. He lacks the mental ability to produce an innings that exemplifies his role in the team. I have nothing against Tamim; he is a talented batsmen. But sometimes i feel like he is not giving his 100% when on the field. Good to hear that Captain Mushfiqur returning to the team. His leadership and batting is desperately needed.

    My Team : Shamsur, Anamul, Mominul, Mushfiqur, Shakib, Nasir, Naeem/ Mahmud, Gazi, Sunny,Mortaza, Shafiul.

  • bdsmaruf on February 15, 2014, 17:58 GMT

  • on February 15, 2014, 17:46 GMT

    i think BD team well suited for fast bouncy tracks in australia or south africa where they can hit johnson & com to all over the part.

  • Bangladesh_Forever on February 15, 2014, 17:41 GMT

    Tamim's case is getting really weird now, the captain is changed and suddenly he has no problem 'concentrating in his batting' despite the extra burden of vice captaincy? He shouldn't have been named VC in the first place simply because his captaincy skills are poor, let alone the recent strings of poor batting...Agree with @ tokyobreeze: he should get only one chance in the ODIs at most... Bangladesh has to win this series badly, no room for indiscipline or petty emotion here...

    My ODI XI: Shamsur, Anamul/Tamim, Naeem, Mominul, Rahim (c), Shakib (vc), Nasir, Riyad/Gazi, Al-Amin, Mashrafe, Arafat

  • aeroboy.ae on February 15, 2014, 17:38 GMT

    its a tough call but my BD XI is tamim, anamul, naeem, mominul, mushfiq, shakib, nasir, mashrafee, arafat sunny, rubel, al amin.

  • bdsmaruf on February 15, 2014, 17:28 GMT

    definitely bd will miss razzak. he is wicket taking bowler in limited over game.

  • TigerRoars on February 15, 2014, 17:10 GMT

    If I was Tamim, I would be very motivated to do well in the ODI series. Suddenly, there are quite a few players who can open in limited over matches and his place is no longer secure, unless he performs. He needs to spend time in the gym, watch his diet, and cut unhealthy habits.

    About the series itself, I think BD will win at least one match. In this format, they are not afraid of any team and can defeat anyone any day.

  • on February 15, 2014, 16:40 GMT

    team will be tamim,shamsur,nayeem,musfiq,sakib,nasir,riad,gazi,masrafi,shafiul,sani

  • tokyobreeze on February 15, 2014, 16:28 GMT

    In my opinion, Tamim should get the 1st ODI and if he can't score/play sensibly - that place should be filled in by Shamsur. Otherwise, I would say Anamul can be a better choice to open, if he settle down he can prolong the innings. Shamsur starts throwing the handle from word go.

    My BD 11 for 1st ODI: Tamim, Anamul, Naeem, Mominul, Mushfiq, Shakib, Nasir, Mahmudullah, Sunny, Mashrafe, Rubel.

    Gazi probably has better batting skill, but Mahmudullah being the offspinner - Sunny contributes better to the combination I think.

  • SL_Fan_1985 on February 15, 2014, 16:24 GMT

    Bangladesh could have won the match.. They did mistakes when choose bowlers... Anyway, well done sri lanka...you proved that still you are No1. Hope to see you in WT20 final....

  • on February 15, 2014, 16:17 GMT

    Tamim should get dropped recover for Asia Cup and T20 world cup as we need him and where is Nazmul? The SL tormentor? I hate to see this continuous overlooking of Nazmul... he is certainly better than Rubel. My team: anamul, shamsur, naeem, shakib, rahim, nasir, mahmadullah, gazi, sunny, mash, al-amin

  • Prabhash1985 on February 15, 2014, 16:08 GMT

    Bangladesh has improved, but clearly the captain has to be Shakib Al Hasan.

  • neanderthal on February 15, 2014, 16:05 GMT

    While Tamim can be rested at the top, Bangladesh would do well not to use Mahmudullah or Naeem at number 8. They already have spinners in Sakib, Nasir, Gazi and would do better to play a fast bowler instead at 8. 7 batsmen and 4 specialist bowlers with Sakib and Nasir doing 5th bowlers job should be the way. Playing bits and pieces allrounders at 8 never works for any team and sooner BD gets rid of this false comfort of having an extra batsman, the better it is.

  • bdsmaruf on February 15, 2014, 16:03 GMT

    tamim should give more attention to his batting.bd need batsman tamim.without performing nobody will be in the team. every player should get it, because bd have now more substitute players than 3-4 years before.

  • TheKeeper on February 15, 2014, 15:48 GMT

    If Bangladesh can win even one ODI match against SL it will be a miracle. SL will probably whitewash Bangladesh for a second time on this tour. SL have a well drilled ODI unit and it will be very difficult for BAN to dominate them - BAN will really have to do their homework and come-up with a solid plan. Let's see, but I predict 3-0 to SL.

  • on February 15, 2014, 15:42 GMT

    Imrul Kayes misses out. I thought he has an outside chance of being picked for the ODIs after his decent performance in the 2nd test. Abdur Razzak is the most important player for BD in the ODIs. Arafat Sunny will not be enough to fill in the gap. We wait, almost everyone here in Bangladesh, for another winning knock from Tamim or Nasir.

  • huffpost on February 15, 2014, 15:41 GMT

    Tests was 1-0, t20 was 2-0 ... I expect the ODI series to be 3-0

  • Warm_Coffee on February 15, 2014, 15:01 GMT

    I agree about Tamim and is not needed in team anymore since there are many performing batsman for Bangladesh now. His attitude is unacceptable and body language in this series suggests to me he doesn't care. His performance in this entire series thus far has simply been poor and has not even come close to scoring even 1 mere 50. Played the highest level of Cricket for over 6 years now and with the ability he has, averaging 30 in ODIs and 36 in tests is below par and disappointing. Fitness is another major disappointment of Tamim. For top order, we can rely on the likes of Shamsur, Imrul and Anamul for certain formats instead of Tamim in my opinion. These batsman at least have the heart to play for their country and are committed.

  • on February 15, 2014, 14:52 GMT

    I must say, Bangladesh has greatly improved towards the right direction and I have been impressed. Sri Lanka did not perform as well as they can in the last two T20 games because Bangladesh did not allow them to. Bangladesh fielding has been of very good quality throughout. In the 1st. Test our bowling, batting and captaincy was awful, but as the team played more games the better they got. Bowlers need to bowl at the right spot with control aggression. Nasir Hossain needs to occupy the crease for longer periods by using his best asset which is playing one's and two's. Shakib Al- Hasan needs to rotate strike especially after scoring a boundary. Shamsur Rahman needs to improve on his shot selection and his footwork. Tamim Iqbal should be omitted out of the squad because this clown will never learn!!! Bangladesh team selection has been poor and some players are still in the squad because of past performances.

  • Bdcricketdebator on February 15, 2014, 14:26 GMT

    Dear BD selectors,who is tamim and why do u repetedly select him?is he in form?is he has been scoring tons in domestic leagues?did he score in the int' arena for bd?or is he a sleepy legendary player who will wake up oneday(god knows when)?it does not make any sense to select tamim.

  • bdsmaruf on February 15, 2014, 14:13 GMT

  • Rafelgibt on February 15, 2014, 13:53 GMT

For the sake of ALLAH drop Tamim for his betterment...Before the series took place i predicted the whole series like- TEST series SL 1 - BAN 0, T20 series SL 2 - BAN 0 and ODI series BAN 2 - SL 1...So, 66.66% has of my prediction has been right now rest of the 33.33 is due...Hope i would be right as well...Inshallah we are going to win the ODI series for sure...Lets roar tigers roar>>>

    @ Sarventhiran, with due respect to recent form of Srilanka team I have doubt if they can win T-20 world cup.Tight win against your so called minows- Bangladesh is not at all a good sign.On the other hand Bangladesh is a very strong team in one day game. If your team is only dependent only on Kushal its not a good sign for a Team like Srilanka. So please , Respect Bangladesh.

  • i_golam on February 15, 2014, 12:50 GMT

    I think 50 overs is a favourit one for BD & it seems that they know now how to handle the game ! Bangla-Wash ?? If it is possible then why not ? I think only Sanga & Kushal can save SL & if BD can take them out early from the game then nothing can stopp BD !! .. should be a great revange for BD too .... Wow ... I am waiting for action !!!

  • on February 15, 2014, 12:43 GMT

    BD bowlers need special treatment to Sangakara, Dilshan, Mahela and Kushal. Kushal can be a dangerous batsman, Make a proper plan to stop him. Our bowling coach need to work more with our spinners. specially gazi to purchase best from the condition, Curator should prepare a BD friendly pitch. Need a result. In this series BD is still waiting for win. wait to see them wining and gain in confidence, Tamim needs to fire. Selectors should stop playing musical chair game with captaincy and vice captaincy.

  • on February 15, 2014, 12:34 GMT

    Mashrafe should appoint as deputy or Mahmudullah. It is not a big deal. if selectors decide that by talking with Tamim then keep him vice captain as long as he want to be. But Tamim has to perform for his country. His performance is very important. If he feels pressure then he should not take any responsibility.

  • TheRisingTeam on February 15, 2014, 12:27 GMT

    Perfect squad for Bangladesh. It has really been a disappointing series since we are still yet to win despite 3 of those games closely contested. However, since ODIs are clearly Bangladesh's favourite form, maybe luck will be on our side finally and finally taste success against an impressive Sri Lankan unit. Hopefully we'll see this 11 - Tamim, Shamsur, Naeem, Rahim, Shakib, Nasir, Riyad, Gazi, Mortaza, Rubel and Sunny. All in all though, a perfect squad for Bangladesh in ODIs.

  • Zakirali on February 15, 2014, 12:15 GMT

    Best time for Bangladesh right at this moment. Naeem can bat in the middle order with Sakib, Mushi, Nasir and Riadh. Hope BD will the series by 2-1 despite losing the T-20 series with great fight.

    Why is tamim vice captain again?

    bangladesh squad is a good team but can't manage our lions because the opening batsmen are in a good form especially kushal perera who can hit boundaries constantly and who remember sanath bangladesh only take advantage in getting middle order batsmen and however sri lanka's bowling line-up is a ideal one so bangladesh should improve their batting .good luck srilanka go ahead ......
