    Sorry, forgot

    Tom de Grooth of the Netherlands, with his astonishing average of 17 in 32 innings, as a specialist batsman. Not much else to say.

    Naimur Rahman

    An all-rounder who had talent but could never make it big.

    His test career wasn't a great one except him getting a six wicket haul against India. In ODIs though, he was bad. In 29 matches, he scored 488 runs at 19.52 (HS 47) with S/R of 63.29. This is not that bad but considering he was a bowling all-rounder (for me, I would say he was a bowler who could bat), his bowling stats really disappoint. In the 24 innings he bowled, he took 10 wickets at 90.4 with best figures of 2/51. Though his domestic stats are really good which showed he could have done much better in his short international career.

    He captained Bangladesh in 4 ODIs, in which they lost as expected. 3 against Zimbabwe and 1 against England. He is a potential captaincy candidate for now.

    Even though he has batted from positions 2 to 9, he played most of the times at no.6. That's where he will be in the team, unless I find someone else.

    @Aislabie don't think this is valid?

    I have to agree.

    The idea of the draft is to pick your players in their real-life roles; given that neither of these players was ever selected as a specialist batsman (both played all of their matches as designated wicket-keepers) then they can only be picked as specialist wicket-keepers.

    I'm afraid that the dreadful David Williams will have to go.

    Overall Pick #28: Abul Hasan
    [​IMG]

    Profile
    Honestly, at no point was Abul the Bangladeshi I expected to pick. There are so many mediocre ones who were given so many chances in the ODI team, but I decided I could make up those caps later with some bang-average Bermudian or something, because Abul Hasan is one of the worst players in ODI history and deserves recognition as such.

    He is best known for being the guy who was picked in the Test side to open the bowling, came in at number ten and lashed a hundred against some very misguided West Indian bowling (it was the era when Darren Sammy was their pace spearhead). Indeed, his Test batting average is still over 80, because his primary skill (bowling) was never good enough for him to keep his place for very long. "How bad?" I hear you ask. Well, his Test bowling average was 123.66. That's pretty bad.

    What's worse is his ODI bowling average. He doesn't have one. In seven ODIs as an opening bowler, spread over six years, he hasn't managed to take a single wicket. On average, he bowls about 5.1 overs per game, and those overs are pretty disastrous: a career economy rate of nearly seven doesn't lie. I don't have much more to say other than his bowling was a lot like Shahadat Hossain, if only Shahadat Hossain was much worse.

    Statistics
    ODIS - :bat: 11 runs @ 3.66, SR 68.75 (best 7) and :bwl: no wickets, econ. 6.77 in 7 matches
    LIST A - :bat: 938 runs @ 19.95, SR 86.21 (best 76) and :bwl: 69 wickets @ 35.40, econ. 5.07 (best 5/32) in 78 matches


    Role in the Team

    Of course he's going to charge in with the new ball. And of course he's going to tuck in right down the order where if his batting clicks there's no real risk of it accidentally doing anything too good.

    Fields on Wheels so far:
    1.
    2.
    3. :can: :bat: Zubin Surkari (Pick #15, 23 caps)
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8. :zim: :ar: Mluleki Nkala (Pick #13, 50 caps)
    9. :ind: :bwl: Srinivas Venkataraghavan :c: (Pick #2, 15 caps)
    10. :ban: :bwl: Abul Hasan (Pick #28, 7 caps)
    11.

    (95/200 caps)
