Default Who are the future core of the team?

Among our last fab five - Mash already admitted himself that he should not be selected again. Riyad and Tamim - both I believe are 2-3 years older than their official ages, and, not surprisingly, struggling nowadays to stay fit. Only Mushfiq and Shakib prolly will continue till 2023.

All in all, it's high time BCB identify a new core, who can play in all format and all conditions (ie, not someone like our Test captain who only clicks at home). That new core need to be persisted with, and supported both in their good and bad patches. My ideal players would have already shown excellent talents, but also have shown drive to improve, drive to overcome their limitations (a la Shakib or Tamim).

My core would be -

Fizz: probably the most talented fast bowler Bangladesh have ever produced. It's frustrating with him now, but, for the sake of Bangladesh cricket, I hope he will overcome his bad patch. Like Mash said, show me someone who has half the talent Fizz has.

Miraz: Well liked by everyone, has been the leading Test bowler for Bangladesh instantly since his debut. Good to see he's realizing his batting talents as well now.

Liton: He has been bullying the domestics in all formats for last few years. Not as consistent at international level, but I think it's only a matter of time. He technically looks much better now than when he started - which makes me believe he has what it takes to become a mainstay of our batting.

Soumya: One of the best batsmen Bangladesh ever produced who plays well in away conditions (Test away average ~42). He needs to overcome his weakness against quality spin (needs a batting coach who specializes in this regard), to be effective at home as well.

Mosaddek: All class against spin, not so much against pace. But, my observation is that Mosaddek has been also showing lots of signs of improvement, which is encouraging.

Please share your thoughts.

Out of players I have seen, that is national teamers I would say this:

1) Mosaddek - he needs to given time batting in the top 5 in ODIs and Tests. He's not a T20 batter, but even there he's shown he can occaisionally do it. I think he can be an ODI finisher like Riyad, but a better overall batsman. He is a great player of spin, but I think he's also decent against pace - anyone with doubts should check his 2017 stats in NZ against Lockie Ferguson.

2) Nurul - Test specialist WK for me. Maybe even all formats since his white ball domestic numbers have looked very good whenever I've checked.

3) Nayeem - may very well be the biggest turner of a cricket ball that Bangladesh has produced. Also has the height to get bounce. I think he could our very best specialist spinner.

4) Jayed - until we can get a faster swing bowler, he's all we have for now.

5) Ebadat - until we can get a faster express bowler, he's all we have for now

6) Mominul (Tests) - I refuse to give up on him. I think he's too good a player to not become at least a decent overseas Test batsman.

7) Shadman (Tests) - I like what I see. I beleive in him.

8) Miraz - Only if he can improve his batting to be close to Shakib in terms of all-round utility.

Players I've seen very little of or not at all:

8) Mohammad Naim Sheikh
9) Tanzim Hasan Sakib
10) Shoriful Islam - we need a tall pacer
11) Tanzid Hasan Tamim - aggressive opener...hopefully a consistent Soumya.

And lastly, senior players who I still feel have another 5 solid years left (maybe more):

11) Mushy
12) Tamim

He can also be handy in T20, was hitting some huge sixes from what I saw.

Overall, it all boils down to how improve BD pace bowling will he in the next few years. I think Test pace bowling has improved quite a lot recently.

Too early to tell. But Jayed-Ebadat-Khaled have bowled well in patches. Khaled is still a major work in progress. Jayed is the most polished, and Ebadat is the most naturally gifted. Hopefully we can et 5-6 years out of these guys (3 WTC cycles). They bowled fairly well in India on seam friendly tracks. Their biggest Test will be in places like WI (Jayed already bowled splendidly there), NZ, and SA whenever we tour next. It will also be important for them to bowl well at home to support the spinners.
