good move. excellent move. why only two of each version though?

we need more of these tournaments - not only to pick people for scholarships - including the national players.

I also think Light Blue is the hot favorite to win this cup.

Dhiman and Mushfiq in the same team !! I guess Dhiman now needs to solely concentrate on his batting.

Light Blue off-spinner Yasin Arafat picked up three wickets as Maroon team were reeling at 160 for 6 at stumps on the first day of the BCB BRAC Bank Academy Cup at BKSP yesterday.

Maroon captain Mehrab Hossain won the toss and opted to bat first after the start of the match was delayed by overnight rain. Tamim Iqbal scored 47, while skipper Mehrab was not out on 31 with Rezaul Islam. Arafat picked up 3 for 39, while Sunny took 2 for 29.

MAROON TEAM: First innings 160 for 6 in 60 overs (Iqbal 47, Shamsur 25, Mehrab 31 batting; Arafat 3-39, Sunny 2-29)

This is an excellent move by BCB. As ATMR already said this is most probably for the new Cricket Academy and if I am not mistaken it will most probably be based out of Mirpur Stadium which is slated to be the "home " of cricket in Bangladesh. These kinds of competitions should be made into a regular feature! In fact, if BCB is smart enough it should look to market these into NBA "All Stars" type games (near the end of the of the domestic season).

good allrounding performance by Mehrab jr. way to go golam..keep up the good work.

light blue lead by 104 in the 1st inning.

mehrab should be nurtured carefully. this guy has shown many times how to play longer version of the game. don't compare him with jo though. he knows how to adapt with the situation.

Naah! JO lava na. but the thing is critisizing on game basis is fine, but linking every thread with JO is just trying to get attention. Lately too much of this is going on in almost all the threads. JO did his service and he is out of the both teams (ODI and test). So to me he is an ex-player. He has the second highest test runs for our country to date. Only Bashar has more runs than him. Meaningless comparison between Mehrab jr. and JO. Nor he is an openning batsman. I had promised I would not say anything on JO few weeks back things are getting out of hand. No reason to make fun of anyone. Especially the ones who gave more than what they got. Not like .....

The first match of the BCB BRAC Bank Academy Cup between Light Blue and Maroon petered into a tame draw at the BKSP ground yesterday.

Mehrab Hossain-led Maroon conceded a first innings lead of 138 runs. They batted slightly better in the second innings, ending the final day on 270 for 8, with Tamim Iqbal and Farhad Hossain notching up half-centuries. Sakib Al Hassan took five for 107 for Light Blue.
Earlier, Light Blue were all out for 329 runs in their first innings. Golam Rahman struck a patient hundred, while Nasiruddin and Dhiman both scoring half-centuries.

Mehrab can't be compared with JO.

Do we have another Rana in the making? That's the thing we should worry about.

Sakib Al Hassan displayed a brilliant all-round show, taking four wickets and then scoring a vital 56, as Light Blue defeated Navy Blue by three wickets in the first one-day match of the BCB BRAC Bank Academy Cup tournament at the BKSP ground yesterday.

The Khulna player took 4 for 56, as Navy Blue batted first and scored 227 for 9 in 50 overs.

In reply, Light Blue reached the target with almost five overs to spare, again thanks to a belligerent knock by Sakib and also a half-century from Golam Rahman.
Rahman continued his good form with a knock of 50 from 71 balls.

Yes. I worry a lot about that. Our under-19 team succeeded with a total team effort. Everyone in the team contributed in some ocassion. In one match one player stood up, in the next game another, followed by a third player in the next. Consistent players had average performances except one or two. But the reason they could won so many games as a team was somebody in the team always came up with a big performance when needed.

Transforming these to national teams won't be easy. In the national team, these players won't play as a team. They will play with different mates. It remains to be seen how we can groom out STARs out of the mediocres for our national team.

Sham
April 26, 2006, 07:02 PM
Does it again!!

This boy performs in every single match, whether with bat, ball or both! Amazing consistency. I dare say we have a Flintoff in the making at the rate this boy is progressing.

I just hope the BCB take it slow with him. No need to rush him into the senior side, but groom him over the next couple of years. There are lots of exciting young players in BD right now, Mushfiqur Rahim, Golam Rahman, Tamim Iqbal, Mehrab Jnr., Shafaq Al Jabir to name a few, but for me, Sakib is at the top of the heap!

Tigers_eye
April 28, 2006, 12:17 PM
The way Ash Alok aftab are playing may be the selectors will have no other choice but to look at these youngsters. I have reservation on Tamim. I don't think he is any good for ODI. He was a super flop in SL. May be when BD play 20/20 we can include him in the experient games.

sadi
April 28, 2006, 12:27 PM
yeah Tamim is definately a exciting prospect but not quite ready for the big stage yet.... we don't need another slogger... probably mehrab jr is the only one ready right now and sakib should be ready in a yr or two

April 28, 2006, 12:53 PM
Tamim played very few FC and OD matches, but his FC stats are much more impressive. He averages 53 from 7 FC matches with 2 centuries + 2 fifty and 93 SR. On the other hand, he averages only 19 in OD from 6 matches, with no fifty and 72 SR.

Whenever our selectors draft him (be it 1 year, 2 year, 3 year later), I would beg to them to allow him play his natural game.

Arif Hossain helped Maroon to a 96-run first innings lead against Navy Blue on the second day in the BCB BRAC Bank Academy Cup tournament at the Sher-e-Bangla cricket stadium at Mirpur yesterday.

The leg-spinner took five for 32 to dismiss Navy Blue to 163 runs in the first innings. Ziaur Rahman also took two wickets.

Opener Amit Majumder was the only batsman from Navy Blue to show some sort of resistance with a sedate 36. Earlier, Maroon were bowled out for 259 in their first innings.

He also picked up four wickets in the Light Blue first innings.
Light Blue were bowled out for 210 runs as Dhiman Ghosh offered resistance with a steady half-century.
