The lanky pacer has been thrown out of the scene for the forthcoming home series against Afghanistan for which selectors could not rap up any significant causes.
Chief Selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu said that there were a few “negatives” doing the rounds about Al-Amin but did not elaborate.
He only said that Shafiul’s fitness was better than Al-Amin’s. “Al-Amin has not been altogether removed from the team. We have the England series coming up too, and he is in our pool,” Minhajul said.
“There were a few negative things that have come up about Al-Amin, plus there’s some talk about his fitness. There was nothing about whether the coach likes or dislikes Al-Amin. There’s a vast difference between Al-Amin and Shafiul’s fielding ability too. Shafiul improved his fitness during the camp. He is an experienced bowler” – Chief Selector narrated.
“Shafiul is more experienced than Al – Amin Hossain. Moreover we have considered the performances in the domestic cricket as well” – Minhajul Abedin said.
Shafiul Islam played his last ODI match in 26th of November, 2014. Appearing in 58 one day matches so far, his total tally of wicket is 52.
