Mortaza needs a prosthetic knee

Next week, along with my beloved Saffers, my lovely BD boys also embark on a tournament. It is my favourite kind, a tri-nation series. The other two teams are India and Sri Lanka. Here's the squad:

Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (vice-capt and wk), Mohammad Ashraful, Abdur Razzak, Tamim Iqbal, Syed Rasel, Raqibul Hasan, Mahmudullah, Nazmul Hossain, Naeem Islam, Imrul Kayes, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Shahriar Nafees, Aftab Ahmed

Fucking Mortaza has still not recovered from his knee injury. He is 80% fit but will not play because the selectors don't want to risk injuring him again. Once again poor Rubel will have to do the 'fast' bowling by himself, if he can! The spinners will be the main attacking option...against India and Sri Lanka. I can't think of a worse team plan. No wait, there is one more. Mushfiq is the Vice-captain of this team. As much as I love him for being the most annoying thing behind the wickets EVER, that is just fucked up right there. Even Tamim would have been a saner choice.

Good news is Shakib will be tested by Dhoni. He might not be the best captain to learn from but he sure as hell is better than Reifer! Bring it on mane-less boy!
A thought just crossed my mind. Maybe Mortaza is afraid of stepping into Shakib's successful shoes as stand-in captain. Fuck Mortaza! Be a man. You are a fast bowler for fuck's sake!

Tamim would not be a saner choice. That Chittagongian has a cricket IQ comparable to a Miley fan club president. Who needs a VC anyway?

I wonder how many love/hate Ashraful threads this series will spawn.

Glad to see Rasel back after a long hiatus. Is SN still sporting that goatee? I am confident if he spends as much time on the crease, as he does grooming his goatee in front of the mirror every morning, he might actually score an odd fifty.

Look even Shakib cannot stop Dhoni. I am afraid he is in for some walloping especially from the Indian captain, the Prince, Nohit and Kohli. Even Durby might join in.
I guess Durby will take a lot of wickets and/or go at a good economy rate - never one to miss out on easy opportunities, is he?

Well, good luck to you but brace for some disappointing times

Anon, I know a couple of people you are related to who will disagree with that Miley comment. HAHA. But the Chittagongian has to be better than Mushfiq! I know he is the captain of his domestic team but at international level??

The goatee is well and alive. Which means the odd fifty won't happen. Maybe we should send him quick maintenance products from here so he can practice his batting more.

raj, we are always braced for disappointing times. I don't care about winning when it comes to Bangladesh. All I am hoping is for them to put up a fight.
