“Mominul and Joy last played international cricket six months ago. That’s the challenge with one-format players,” Domingo said the day before the first Test in Chattogram. “Shakib and Litton are playing week in, week out. It is not a big step-up for them. But Mominul and Joy are looking good, the way they are playing. I know the currency is runs, but technically they are looking pretty good. Joy has got a lot of starts, so it is just about finding that tempo and get the big score.”
Shanto has scored just one half-century this year in eight Tests. He has also found form in the T20I and ODI sides of late, but has struggled for consistency there too.
