Rabbi is very talented guy. He is good in all three format game of cricket. The pacer had made his Test debut this October against England. The selectors are took the standby bowler as well as Al-Amin Hossain and Alauddin Babu. The both are very good in their place but now the tigers need something better to fight against such a hardest team like New Zealand.
Kamul is another standby setup. The selectors elected him in their 22-man squad. There has a vast cause to take behind the decision. In BPL he blashed himself by taking seven wickets in eight matches. He boost the Barisal Bulls in various way.
The chief selector Minhajul has taken the decision to watch the impressive performance. This is phenomenal record which grabbed by the young talent. So BCB considered about him.
