BCB to announce squad for Afganistan series after BPL!
CRICDOT DESK : The final of the eighth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) will be held on February 18. The next day, Afghanistan will visit Bangladesh to play three ODIs and two T20s. Bangladesh team may be announced for the home series before the end of BPL. The selectors will hold discussions and meetings with the team management during the play-offs.
National team chief selector Minhazul Abedin Nannu said this on Tuesday (February 1). Despite many criticisms and rumors, the BCB has asked the current selection committee to continue its work. The selectors are watching the BPL matches for that purpose. Monitoring the performance of cricketers.
Regarding the announcement of the Bangladesh squad for the Afghanistan series, the chief selector said, “We will give the main squad between 15th and 16th. Have a little discussion with the team management. All in all, when the round is over, the task will be decided before the eliminator round. ‘
Initially, the BCB had planned to play good wickets with the Afghans outside Mirpur. Later, BCB moved away from that plan. Excluding Sylhet, home series will be held in Dhaka and Chittagong. Mirpur may have T20 series.
The selectors are quite optimistic about the three-match ODI series. “We have a balance in fifty over cricket,” Nannu said. There are thoughts about that. We played the last series, we won the series in fifty overs, that’s all in our heads. So there will be all kinds of discussions. ‘
Nannu wants to respect Tamim’s decision not to play T20. The selectors want to choose the best possible cricketer in his place. The chief selector said, “You have to think about who you are now. We have to give a chance to the one who is the best at the moment or to someone like that. ‘
