View Full Version : Opee, Golla and Durjoy Coming back for tri-series

March 17, 2003, 05:52 PM
Just saw the news on the newspaper that the selectors are considering Opee and Golla for the openning positions in the tri-nation series. They are also considering Durjoy for his aditional ability of bowling. But they don't want to consider Bulbul - as he doesn't have any good performance in the league. The most interesting news is selectors are looking for a substitute keeper cum batsman for Pilot. It doesn't mean that Pilot will be dropped - but they want to have one substitute. They have a name for that - Selim. I don't know why they are not considering Anwar? may be Selim did good in the premier league.

I think they read my scorecard in the thread "BD in AUS schedule".

Once they have started reading, they will keep reading.

Atleast the selectors are waking up from a long sleep !

...all of this chopping and changing ain't gonna change a friggin' thing.

Who knows Shubho it might work......It would...if we have good openers and some good batsman who r really experienced instead of the unexperienced and amatuers youngster, we probably have a better chance to boost or show up...

look at the kenyans they have very old players who r like 28-35 and that is why they r doing good in this WC....experience matters.....

Kenya's best player is only 21. He is Collins Obuya, thier leg spinner. I suppose, he will be the 1st Kenyan to take 100 ODI & Test wickets for them.

Doesn't matter...he get support from other players which boosts his confidence

This is really interesting to see of Kenya that they don't have 30 good players to represent their side, and yet now Collins Obuya, entered the national side at the age of 18/19 years and have succeeded very well; also Thomas Odoyo who was also around 18 years of age when he entered the Kenyan national team during the 1996 World cup, he also succeeded very well.

Lets see what goes with our team in the coming tri-angular series..

I may be wrong but ws that a tone ? I was just reading through some of the posts and loks like you are up against Shahid for some reasons. Now, i don't know how it started but I do know that we don't need this attitude.

As for - YUP THATS TRUE AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT I SAID BEFORE - sorry to say this but a lot of this stuff and others have been said by many others (yes, even before you). We don't mind repeats as they are rampant.

There are "ideas" being thrown out here that we've discussed atleast two years ago and someone else discussed it way before that.

No reason to get all worked up about such simple matters. Other then that, eveything else is peachy.
