CRICDOT DESK : Opener Naeem Sheikh has been dropped from the ODI squad. Despite his poor BPL form, he has survived the T20 squad. Munim Shahriar, who was called up for the T20 team for the first time with him, has practiced batting for the first time in Chittagong. For the first time, batting coach Jamie Siddons has ‘tested’ the young Turks.

During a training session on Saturday, Siddons, speaking on behalf of the team, spoke about the experience. “I met them today. Still can’t decide whose name. They will be seen again today, tomorrow and before the T20 match. It felt good to see them batting. ‘

Siddons watched Munim-Naeem play from afar in BPL. Naeem did not get a chance to regularly bat in the order of his choice. Siddons, who is the head coach of the Bangladesh team in the 2011 World Cup, feels frustrated. However, he hopes that he will do well back in the national team.

“We want to see good cricket in the T20 format from the youngsters,” said Siddons, noting that they want the best from the youngsters in the T20 format. Especially in power play. I am thinking about how to finish the innings well. We haven’t done very well there before. ‘

He also said that he did not want to leave much to be desired with the team. He said he has already received a possible list of future T20 teams. Try to figure out how they can do better in the next World Cup.

Bangladesh will play the third and final match of the ODI series against the Afghans on February 26. After that, the two-match T20 series will be played on March 3 and 5.
