Just read this positive thread on the BBC site. Rafique fans and BD cricket fans in general would love this. I'll put the link and copy/paste the posts as well:


POsted in the 'Bangladesh Spinners' thread:

I have been very impressed by what I have seen from the 2 Bangla spinners, Rafique and Ennamel Haque jr. I'm an England cricket supporter and it would not be a bad idea if England asked Dav Whatmore very nicely if we could borrow these two spinners to use on our Ashes tour to Australia this winter. Yep, a combined Eng/Bang 11 comprising of the abovementioned spinners and R Saleh the Bangla batsman (most consistent and Thorpe like)+ the rest of the England cricket team should retain the Ashes. What do you think?

Rafique is the best spinning all-rounder in the worls at the moment.

Rafique rocks.

That's a huge compliment to our cricket especially to Rafique/Enamul n' Rajin...:fanflag:

Wow! We are indeed getting there, aren't we! :D

Btw, good find!

Mohammad Rafique is the man. He has been with bd time for more than a decade and gave more than 100% on every occation. and he will be the first cricketer to achieve double (100 wickets and 1000 runs) in both form of the game

Please feel free to share this with BD newpapers. All this time, it's been us looking at players from different countries and thinking how great it'd be if they played for BD. Now, some of our players are building (let's not forget our foreign guests from other nations at BC) a fan base among fans from other nations. It's always a great thing. Also, more reason for our boys/guys to shine in world cricket. This news should motivate Rafique, Rajin, and the others.

holy crap! i'm speechless!

You see, what a complement for Rajin. Thorpe like... wow! I hope he turns out to be what we all expect him to be.

Rafique is indeed something special. I was ready to drop him after the incident with the coach/players. Nice to see someone holding Bangladesh's pride.

Enam, only time will prove how good he can be. Keep working and you will get your return.

Nice... maybe a county contract is on its way

Its nice to see respect from others, but I would be really impressed when our players will get the chance to play county cricket.
