New faces in Tigers camp
Sports Reporter, DS


The selection panel led by Faruque Ahmed called up two all-rounders Sakib Al Hasan and Forhad Reza into the senior side considering their impressive performances at different levels in the last two seasons.

Sakib is a solid left-handed batsman who also bowls useful left-arm spin while Forhad is a seam bowler and can bat in the middle-order.

The latter has been brought in, it seems, to fill the void left by all-rounder Khaled Mahmud.

"Both are genuine all-rounders and we believe that these two young cricketers would be effective in the shorter-version game. We are totally against bringing about massive changes but at the same time we didn't want to ignore young performers," said the chief selector.

"Sakib has already proved his ability in the under-19 and A teams, especially a very impressive performance during Bangladesh A's last tour in Zimbabwe while Forhad was always on our minds for his notable domestic record," he added.

This DS report (http://www.thedailystar.net/2005/11/10/d51110040130.htm) mentions him as a gentle medium pacer.

In the rush manner Reza is thrown in the national team (not much experience in the domestic league or in the HP squad), he gotta be an extra-ordinary player. So, may be he pulls the same way he drives :lol:

Joke aside, from Reza's body position and the face of the bat, I think cricketboy is right to say that Reza was driving the ball, not pulling it. I just did not observe the picture well when I posted it and copied the caption written by the DS reporter.

His name is quite familiar to me. With every Rajshahi win, he always has got some contribution. His stat looks quite impressive. Wishing him a great future and hope he can make us proud of himself!

I just wanted to know, whether he has played any match against any international team of any level.
I believe that, it was right to experiment him first with the A team in Zimbabwe and after their return and based on his performance could be included in the national fold.

I dont know too much about Farhad, bud Sakib should be in the team definitely..coz i saw him closely, he is a very good performer, i can bet on that.And Our country needs more left handed batsman too.But young players like farhad and sakib should play against zimbabwe.we should give them chance, Who knows may be we can find a Tendylkar or Lara in the long run!

He toured Sri Lanka with the HP squad last year. The team played one four day match and four one day matches against a Lankan development XI, lost the four day and won the oneday series in 3-1 margin. After Sakib, Farhad Reza was the main contributor for Bangladesh, with both bat and ball, in the one day series.

He was also in the HP squad that played the five match one day series with the visiting Eng U/19 team. Later in the year, he played two matches against visiting UAE team as part of the BD-A team sans the U/19 boys.

Reza's the moment of glory came when he was selected for BD-A team against visiting Lanka A-team and took a 5 wickets haul in the first list-A match. BD-A won the match. Even more fortunate for him, Whatmore was present to watch that match and was highly impressed with Tushar-Sakib-Reza trio.

Timing matters ;)... I am still wondering whether its too early for him...

Reza was quoted in a Bangla newspaper that he himself was surprised to be called in the national team camp so early.

However, we have 14 ODIs against Zim and Kenya and only two ODIs against Test playing teams (SL, WI), before the team leaves for the Carribean. So, I think, it is the perfect time to groom some youngsters.
