Chief BCB selector: Only domestic performance not good enough
Performance in domestic competitions only should not be enough for a player to get a call-up in the national team, said chief BCB selector Minhajul Abedin. According to the former Bangladesh captain, a cricketer, besides performing in domestic tournaments, should also be judged on other factors before getting included in the national side. Minhajul also informed that the selection committee has prepared a 30-member preliminary Bangladesh squad for the T20I series against Afghanistan in Dehradun next month, which will be submitted to the board Saturday. The national selectors have also drafted a 22-member BCB High Performance squad, which includes players who are on the verge of joining the Bangladesh A team. The HP squad in total will have 30 cricketers. The remaining cricketers are to be added Saturday. “You need to understand that performing in domestic cricket does not guarantee performance in international cricket. We need to understand if a cricketer has the ability to take challenges in international level. There are many cricketers around the world who perform in domestic cricket but not in international cricket. There might only be a few (who plays well in both). It is not mandatory to select a player right away only because he is performing, there are other factors you need to take into consideration,” said Minhajul to the media at the BCB headquarters in Mirpur Friday.

“We will submit a 30-member national preliminary squad (Saturday). At the same time, we have included some players in the HP squad who we think are good options for the A team. We have a formed a 22-member HP squad for now and will add another six to eight players,” Minhajul informed. The national preliminary camp is set to start on May 13 at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka with a full-time head coach still missing from the dressing room. Though it has almost been six months since the post went vacant, the BCB has not been able to rope in a coach for the national team. With no sound progress in finding a new Bangladesh coach, it is understood that the charge will be given to Tigers pace bowling coach Courtney Walsh ahead of their bilateral away series’ against Afghanistan and the West Indies. When queried as to how the processes of selection are being done without a head coach, Minhajul explained, “We had an initial discussion with the captains, despite the fact that you do not need to talk to a captain when forming a preliminary squad. Team trainer will be judging the fitness of the players in the preliminary squad. Based on reports from the trainer, we will form a final squad and that is usually discussed with the head coach.”
