Soumya, Mominul, Mosaddek still in our World Cup plans – Steve Rhodes

Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque and Mosaddek Hossain remain part of the plans for the Bangladesh World Cup, according to coach Steve Rhodes.

players retired for the ODI series against Zimbabwe after a poor performance in the Asian Cup last month. Rhodes said he is closely monitoring his performance in the national competition, and will be present when touring Zimbabweans face the BCB XI led by Soumya on Friday. Soumya has marked a century, two half centuries and has also taken a five-legged course in the first-class competition of the NCL underway.

"When people leave the team, they feel lonely, disappointed, disillusioned and abandoned," said Rhodes. "They feel abandoned, we do not expect it from Soumya and Mominul, who are quality cricketers, they can rejoin the team, Mosaddek has also left, I'll be in the practice game [on Friday].

" I was delighted that Soumya got two shots of 70 and five shots in the NCL game. The moment is excellent. I was in contact with him. He is the type of player who can eject some of our players. They have to keep acting and then they can try. "

Rhodes also said that Ariful Haque, Mohammad Saifuddin and Nazmul Islam, relatively inexperienced in international cricket, have to prove to him that they belong at the highest level.

Ariful, who He will be presenting at the BCB XI, awaiting his ODI debut despite having been on the Asian Cup team, since the Bangladeshi team's management is now focused on bowling in the No. 7, it is in direct competition with Saifuddin, 19659004] "[Ariful] is another hitter who plays," said Rhodes. "He made double-century in the first NCL game, which is fantastic. Ariful, Soumya and Saifuddin are the same type of players. Ariful is definitely a player that we would like to see. If we do not test them, how do we know if they are good or not? "

Saifuddin could get the nod and is considered the possible replacement of Captain Mashrafe Mortaza in case of an injury." I think Saifuddin is a very good all-rounder. He has the ability to perform at the highest level. He has had a taste of international cricket. He has left and has returned to the team. We hope it matures more.

"Mashrafe had his injuries, he recently received an injury, we have to think about keeping someone ready as his replacement, we want to give Saifuddin some cricket so he can be prepared, I like his approach and attitude, and he looks more strong ".

Rhodes also trusts that the left arm spinner Nazmul can accompany Mehidy Hasan in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan. "[Nazmul Islam] Apu is a quality pitcher, he has shown that in the shortest format, and we know he can do well in the ODI format, if Apu plays, we have two quality spins.

" Shakib is an Incredibly talented spinner, batter, outfielder and tactician, and can not be replaced. We have to put make-up on other areas of the team. There will be a little more responsibility in Mehidy [Hasan]. "
