Probable Bangldesh World Cup Squad for 2019 World Cup Cricket

Bangladesh ODI World Cup Squad

Whole Bangladesh is waiting for the great event. 12th edition of one day international(ODI) cricket world is scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales(30 May-14 July). Bangladesh squad will be declared on 18th april(probable date) according to prominent Bengali newspaper Daily Jugantor.

Analysis From Three Point Of View

Before taking any final decision about the final squad I am going to analyze something. Lets take look at the comments from three important positions-

Nazmul Hasan Papon(BCB President): He said-"Tamim, Soumya and Liton will play as opening batsman, Sakib Al Hasan at 3, Mushfiqur Rahim at 4, Muhammad Mithun 5, Mahmudullah Riyad at 6, seven and eight will be Sabbir, Saifuddin, Miraz, Number nine Mashrafe, Number 10 Rubel/Taskin, number 11 Mustafizur, Mosaddek as backup"

Habibul Bashar And Akram Khan(BCB Officials): Habibul Bashar said-"Bangladesh will play with the best world cup eleven ever in the history. See the team- this is the best according to performance and experience". Akram Khan said-"Our Job is to keep the players mentally ready for the world cup. 13-14 players are fixed. 1/2 player can be taken from BPL and DPL performance"

Mashrafe Mortaza(the Captain): He said-"8/9 players are fixed. Others will be decided after discussion. DPL performance will not be considered"

If we consider that all the things they said about final squad is right except the controversial words. Its all about miscommunication and the squad will be declared by the selector. President and Captain can make their advice/comment on that.

Mashrafe and Akram Khan Controversy

Jugantor made a news about it. Some other online newspapers also made news about the topic. But they made almost same speech. Akram khan want to consider DPL performance into account and 13/14 players are automatic choice. Mashrafe strict to BPL and 8/9 players are automatic choice. Mashrafe is not selector, he can made comment on board meeting. His impact can change the team a little(not much).

Final Squad of Bangladesh Cricket Team For World Cup 2019

So, we can say 13/14 players are selected. 1/2 may be selected from BPL performance. Considering Nazmul Hasan papon we can say the squad will be-

  1. Tamim Iqbal
  2. Litan Kumar Das
  3. Soumya Sarkar
  4. Sakib Al Hasan
  5. Mushfiqur Rahim
  6. Mahmudullah Riyad
  7. Sabbir Rahman
  8. Mehdi Hasan MIraz
  9. Saifuddin Ahmed
  10. Mashrafe Bin Mortuza
  11. Rubel Hossain
  12. Mustafizur Rahman
  13. Taskin Ahmed
  14. Mosaddek Hossain Saikat
  15. Rony Talukdar/ Imrul Kayes/Yasir Ali/ Anamul Haque

Experience is very important for cricket world cup. Players who has previous experience of playing in English condition will get extra benefit. World cup is not a place for experiment. Team management know the fact very well and they will surely select a proven team for the ultimate battle. 'No surprize in the tigers world cup squad'- Papan said according to the Independent(Bangladeshi Daily Newspaper).

Top Order: Tamim and Litan will open the innings. Soumya is the third opener. Soumya can bat down the order. We will probably see him batting at number 7 in some of the matches. Imrul/Anamul can have a chance(Although Mr. Papon denied surprise entry).

Middle Order(Mostly All ROunder): Sakib, Mushfiq, Mahmudullah. Three most consistent and most reliable batsman. Mosaddek/Sabbir is alternative.

Lower Middle Order(All Rounder): Sabbir, Mithun, Miraz, Saifuddin. Mashrafe may surprisingly enter in some cases.

Bowler/ Lower Order: Mashrafee, Mustafiz, Taskin, Rubel, Saifuddin. Not a bad pace attack in England and wales.

The place of Imrul Kayes is not secured yet. Lets see ekattor tv report about it-

Choice of Players and Controversy

Imrul Kayes had scored 1000 runs in a calendar year. He was said the unsung hero. No doubt about his potential. But recent performance of Litan Kumar Das in domestic cricket is wonderful. He deserve a place in the world cup squad. Soumya Sarkar can play multiple role in the field. If he don't score a run, he can save 20 runs. Anamul is another good opener,a performer(Saurav Ganguly like him, His recent BPL coach thanks him specially for his domestic performance). At the end of the day we must support Bangladesh cricket Team
