Crashraful inches his way in again

The Bangladesh squad for WC T20 has been announced:

Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (vice-capt/wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Mahmudullah, Naeem Islam, Mashrafe Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Syed Rasel, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Jahurul Islam (wk)

I would bitch and moan about the return of the midget monstrosity but I get the feeling no matter which team we pick, we have already lost it. In fact, I can predict the loss now.

We are playing Australia and Pakistan. This may be T20 and unpredictive but with Ricky no longer captaining Ozland and Shahid Afridi finally getting the position he has been vying for, I doubt we can do anything to win our matches. So I guess Raful can play. Probably in place of Kayes.

At least Mashrafe is back to bowl his stunning deliveries during the death overs. You know the ones that go so far over the boundary you need binoculars to spot them? Yeah those. Good times ahead!

This should have been the news of the day. But no Ricky Martin had to come out of his closet and steal Ashrafool's thunder. No Ricky, really? Oh so that's why you were...

Inconsiderate Jerk. :P

Haha, nice one, Anon!

Hmmmmm....Shakib must be fuming that Crash and Mash are in the side! After he was crying out for discipline in the side, he gets 2 of the most indisciplined nincompoops in his 15-man squad!

BTW, is it just me or does Shakib seem to be like a Ranatunga in the making? His hard-nosed attitude was there in its full glory when he said that no-one worked harder than himself in the second test! :O

So should we make Ricky play for Bangladesh then? Since he stole Raful's thunder.

Thiru, well..we still need Mash that's the problem. He just needs to go back to bowling well again!

Hehe. We hope so Thiru, we hope so!
