Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan thinks Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das and Sabbir Rahman are not Test players and he does not want them to be Test players either. 

He expressed his opinions regarding Bangladesh’s lackluster performance in the lone Test match against Afghanistan when he faced the press Sunday.

“Soumya, Liton and Sabbir are not Test players. We play them in Tests for specific reasons, but in reality they are not Test players. In fact, I don’t want them to be Test players,” BCB boss Nazmul said.

He also praised the Afghans, saying, “If you talk about performance, you must give credit to Afghanistan. They showed proper Test batting, one of them scored a century while others scored 80 to 90 runs.”

BCB boss Nazmul also expressed discontent with the team planning. 

He said, “There was a lack of planning. We need to look into it.” 

He also expected a sporting wicket, “Where are our pacers? We played them (Afghanistan) in the World Cup on a sporting wicket. We expected the same here.” 

BCB supremo Nazmul mentioned the necessity to incorporate new blood in the team, saying, “If we always play with the same team, the new players will not get any chance and there will be no change in the team. In the upcoming tri-nation series, we will see if we can introduce some youngsters.”
