[বাংলা]ক্রিকেটারদের সঙ্গে কথা বললেন না সাবের চৌধুরী[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]স্পোর্ট রিপোর্টার : এয়ারপোর্টের ইমিগ্রেশন এরিয়ায় হঠাত্ করেই দেখা এক ভদ্রলোকের ওপর দৃষ্টি আটকে গেল বাংলাদেশ দলের ক্রিকেটারদের৷ চেনা চেনা লাগছিল৷ আবার অচেনাও৷ যাকে সবসময় পাজামা-পাঞ্জাবিতে দেখেছেন, তাকে জিন্স আর টি-শার্ট পরা অবস্থায় দেখার পর খটকা লাগতে বাধ্য৷ সেই দ্বিধা কাটিয়ে উঠতে কেউ একজন রাখলেন অগ্রণী ভূমিকা৷ ভালো মতো দেখেশুনে বাকি সবাইকে নিশ্চিত করলেন, ‘আরে উনি তো সাবের ভাই৷’ মানে সাবের হোসেন চৌধুরী৷ বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট কন্ট্রোল বোের্ডর সাবেক সভাপতি৷ বাংলাদেশ দল জিম্বাবুয়ের ফ্লাইটে চড়ার আনুষ্ঠানিকতা সারছিল৷ আর বিরোধীদলীয় নেতার রাজনৈতিক সচিব লন্ডনের উদ্দেশে রওনা হচ্ছিলেন৷ ক্রিকেটের সঙ্গে তার সম্পর্ক অনেক পুরনো৷ তাছাড়া ক্রিকেটারদের অনুপ্রাণিত করার ক্ষেত্রেও তার সুনাম ছিল৷ গত তত্ত্বাবধায়ক সরকারের আমলে তাকে ক্রিকেট বোের্ডর সভাপতির পদ থেকে সরিয়ে দেয়ার পরও এয়ারপোের্ট গিয়েছিলেন টেস্ট ক্রিকেটের সর্বকনিষ্ঠ সেঞ্চুরিয়ান হিসেবে দেশে ফেরা মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলকে স্বাগত জানাতে৷ দেশের বাইরে প্রথম সিরিজ জেতার মিশনে যাচ্ছে বাংলাদেশ দল৷ দেখা হয়ে যাওয়ার পর তার কাছ থেকে অনুপ্রেরণাদায়ক কিছু শোনার আশা করতেই পারেন ক্রিকেটাররা৷ কিন্তু তিনি কথাই বললেন না৷ এমনকি ‘হাই, হ্যালো’ও নয়৷ বিষয়টা উপস্থিত অনেককেই অবাক করেছে৷ গুরুত্বপূর্ণ অথচ মর্যাদাপূর্ণ নয়, ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের এমনসব কাজের সঙ্গে জড়িত এক কর্মকর্তার সঙ্গে অবশ্য তাকে বেশ কিছুক্ষণ কথা বলতে দেখা গেছে![/বাংলা] সূত্র: যায়যায়দিন (http://www.jaijaidin.com/view_news.php?News-ID=7195&issue=46&nav_id=4)

আমার মতে সাবের চৌধুরী বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেটের জন্য অসাধ্য সাধন করেছিলেন টেস্ট স্ট্যাটাসের জন্য লবি করে। কিন্তু কি কারণে তার এখন অভিমান? ক্রিকেটকে রাজনীতির সাথে মাখাননা বলেইতো জানতাম। কিন্তু এবার কি হল?

As far as I know, in the past, Saber Chowdhury tried not to mix up politics with cricket. For exmaple he is the one who supported the involvement of powerful political figures in cricket ( like involment of the youngest son of PM, CoCo).

I didn't find anything in that report that let me to believe that " Saber Chow Obhiman Korechen" . I am not sure its even true... its very much possible that its was a day dream by the reporter.

Looks like its more to do with the lagging criculation of Jai Jai Din trying to create a stir out of nothing. Looks like JaiJaiDin Reporters have lots to idle time ... otherwise how come they come up with such a great Conspiracy theory out of nothing?

I think its not Saber, but the reporter, who is mixing up politics with cricket.

Saber Hossain was a good organizer. He did a lot for our cricket. It was hard to see him go. It was even harder to see this Loby taking over for him.

Saber chowdhury is receiving regular beatings on the streets these days, since he is staying at the forefront of many rallies that are destroying property and hurting people on the streets. He has been organizing anti-Bangladeshi campaign with India and others for sometimes now. God knows what sceme he is cooking up in England in this visit. What a waste of a talent. His time, skill and energy would have been better used as our chief of cricket.

If this is some imposter then the joke is in bad taste. If it is actually Mr Saber Hossain then welcome on board to bangla cricket, sir. I have a lot of respect for you as a person and as a cricket administrator but I cannot understand how an educated person like you can be invovled in a party like Awami league led by a woman who is best known for her two faced tongue. Not that the current party in power is any better but I find it hard to digest when I see people like you get invovled in political parties and then as a result have to keep saying stuff that might not always make sense just because your party has a similar opinion. Well I just hope good people invovled in politics can rise above parties and work for Bangladesh ( wishful thinking ).

How your question is anyway related to bangladesh cricket?

Can we please keep the politics part (nothing related to cricket) out of here please? What you consider a bad party may not be viewed by others as so, and what you consider a good party may not be viewed by others. And I don't see anything wrong about that. Thats why Mr. Saber is not Mr. Shahriyar and vice versa.

If you still insist on asking this to Mr. Saber, please do so in Forget Cricket. Please don't mix up cricket and one person's personal affiliation with any party in Bangladesh Cricket section. Beacuse it is intended only for Bangladesh Cricket.

Which part of my post actually ticked you off ?? Me saying something against a political party or my post being irrelevant to Bangldesh cricket? If my post being irrelevant to Bangladesh cricket is what ticked you then the following line your post should not be there " What you consider a bad party may not be viewed by others..................and vice versa". Simply asking not to post irrelevant stuff on Bangla cricket should be good enough. Still for this i Have this to say, I have seen other people posting irrelevant stuff in Bangla cricket section. If you want proof just go back to your own posts or even better go through the recent posts on bangladesh cricket. I would have preferred if the request came from a moderator and if this was something strictly obeyed by ALL members.

If the reason was me dissing some political party and its leadership( which I think it was) then I have every right to my opinion as you have to yours. If you want to make your views clear then please go ahead and post a love poem about this on "forget cricket" regarding your favourite political party and its able leadership.

What ticked me off is we had an opportunity to have Mr. Saber to share his ideas about cricket in this forum, and your non cricket related question with not so encouraging qualifier may discourage him to come in this forum. That really ticked me off.



Simply asking not to post irrelevant stuff on Bangla cricket should be good enough. Still for this i Have this to say, I have seen other people posting irrelevant stuff in Bangla cricket section. If you want proof just go back to your own posts or even better go through the recent posts on bangladesh cricket.

I am sure there are plenty of examples. My suggestion is: please feel free to point out others (including myself) if you see that. That way we can avoid irrelevant issues in Bangladesh Cricket. Thats why we have Forget Cricket. About myself being crossing the border, please point it out in future. That will definelty help me.


If the reason was me dissing some political party and its leadership( which I think it was) then I have every right to my opinion as you have to yours. If you want to make your views clear then please go ahead and post a love poem about this on "forget cricket" regarding your favourite political party and its able leadership.

I think you are missing the point here. You are more than welcome to express your view dissing some political party and its leadership, but my point is please do not bring it in here, Bangladesh Cricket. We have Forget Cricket for that.

If I want to post a love poem, sure I will do that, but not in Bangladesh Cricket, if it has nothing to do with cricket. And my frequent visit to forget cricket proves that, I am not afraid to do so,



Sorry for any inconvinience my post caused you !!

I am not a moderator, just a plain member like you are. And my suggestion was, to keep bangladesh cricket only related to Cricket, so that we don't regret about missed opportunity. The missed opportunity of bringing proven cricket brains/experts comming in this forum.

Now if you think my comment was intended to personally insult you... then my apologies...I am away from Bangladesh for a long long time... citizen of another country ... no plan to go back home ... and really no vested interest who rules the country. Only think I want is prosperity of Bangladesh and Bangladesh Cricket in general term.

but may be for Distinguised personnel, like Martin William and Saber Bhai, we can create something new... like

Hope, you can come out of the traditional and disgraceful political culture and really do something good for Bangladesh Cricket in future.

On second note--
I have little confidence in most of the media reports whether its Jai Jai din or Prothom Alo or Janakantha. Many of them are table reports. At the same time I cannot ignore them. I do read 8-9 dailies online and Jai Jai Din is pretty good among the lot (definitely biased like other national dailies).

I believe I have not stopped supporting Bangladesh Cricket and have been constructive in my comments, statements and actions in upholding the cause thereof. I agree with you generally that there is to be a change in mind set in general terms and the first step towards that would be an acknolwedgement on the part of the Administrators that we will not be in this position forever and when my time is up, I should accept that and see what I can do to help rather than impede our successors!

It's great to have you here amongst us Bangladesh cricket fans. Sorry I'm a little late in welcoming you.

I could send you a private message and ask you some questions, but I would rather ask you here so that every one on Banglacricket maybe able to read your response.

Could you please tell us a little bit about Bangladesh's promotion to the test ranks? Most of us did not think we would be able to achieve test status so soon. So, if and when you have the time, would you please tell us about one of the best periods of our cricket history?


To the Banglacricket administrators, thank you for making this message board what it is today. We had coaches and cricinfo folks join this board before, but having an administrator like Mr Chowdhury is quite something. I am all :D now. Thank you.

A lot of IFS here ... :) not sure if I would be, or want to be back at BCB but what would be important for me would be to do everything possible to ensure that the infra-structure for the growth of the game is really put in place and we take full advantage of the opportunities that would come with hosting the 2001 WC here. A world class cricket academy in Bangladesh (I looked at Cox's Bazaar very closely and even identified a possible site for this and had opened up discussions with the relevent Ministry) , a strong and stable first class structure with indoor facilities in as many districts as possible would be a clear priority as would be an administration structure for the game here that would be transparent, accountable and professional / efficient. That is a big wish list but who would have believed us in 1997 that we would indeed have Test status by 2000 or for that matter in 2000 when we talked about our aspirations for hosting the WC in 2011?! Sorry, wandered off there ... :)

I am very delighted to see Saber bhai here. Is there a way to verify that he is actually our Saber Chowdhury, whose organizing capability led to our test status? Or someone just pretending to be him? I am sorry, I have seen posters @BC claiming them as ZIMBO or SLans but somehow I knew they were Bangladeshi.

rudro - mods don't bestow custom tags such as Former BCCB without some verification. Rest assured, that for people that are truly big-wigs, we double-check.

Thanks, RAzabQ. Welcome Saber bhai. I have read some of your posts and they tell me that cricket is in your mind.

<XBODY>Update on Health Condition:
Injuries to the lower abdominal region are healing and well on the way to mend. Am able to pass urine without difficulty now and the flow meter test indicates bladder functioning has improved almost 80%.
The infection as a result of damage to the bladder wall has also now been thankfully cleared and the muscle bruises have healed.
Examination has revealed there is a “collection” below the right testicle and hopefully the quantity is small enough to be absorbed into the system.
The vision problems persist. Consultant Neuro Ophthalmologists in Singapore and London have confirmed that due to trauma to the head, the Brain Stem has been jarred / shaken and this has in turn damaged a few nerves including the Third Nerve.
MRI indicates the right eye is divergent and not in alignment to the left eye and consequently there is no fusion between the two eyes. This has resulted in double vision in the form of horizontal double images.
Have been advised rest, no strenuous mental/physical activity and no sudden movements of the head. Healing in such cases has been known to take place (in some cases it can take up to 6 months) but will have an indication on my own situation and prospects thereof when I see Specialists again in 6 weeks.
Till then have been asked to cover one eye with a patch when I am reading or working on the computer as have no problems with single eye vision
If unfortunately there is no healing and the double vision persists, then depending on the extent of the correction required, wearing of an aid such as prism lens or as a last resort surgery will be considered.

I saw a newsreport on NTV where Mr. Saber Chowdhury was present with Hasina. Hasina was speaking to his party leaders in "Shudha Sodon" about the current situation.

I guess Saber bhai is better now.

Since this is the "official Saber hossain thread" I am puting in a request to Mr saber Hossain. I know some members get really pissed to see non cricketing matters being discussed in the bangladesh cricket thread so I apologize to them now. I would really like to hear your ( Mr Saber hossain's) views on the current political situation prevailing in Bangladesh. We have a thread in the forget cricket section opened by MIraz bhai asking for people's reaction. As a politician involved with AL and if I am not mistaken you are also the political secretary to Sheikh Hasina, so I assume you are part of the decisions taken by Al as a whole. What do you have to say about the activities of the AL activists that we have seen in the last few days? The whole country was "successfully paralayzed" as promised by the AL bigwigs. I would like to know who has gained from this paralysis and what and who were the biggest losers? I have a friend here from Morocco who just caught me reading the daily star the other day and saw the picture showing the chaos titled" downtown dhaka turns into battlefield" and he said to me if this is what happens in your country I would never like to visit there. This would never happen in Morocco. Point to note Morocco is also a poor country and it is also in Africa but apparently their politicians although are bad in their own way dont turn their cities into battlefields.

I would like to apologize if this post offfends you in any way although I do not see how it could because if I thought I was offending you personally I would not post it. I would really appreciate your views on the current scenario if you can find the time to write one taking into acount your busy schedule ahead of election.

One of the most passionate BCB personnel ever. I would never forget his reaction during the ICC Final against Kenya. I still watch that video and last over time and again. Saber uncle is a true gentleman. I had the pleasure to meet him once years back. But I don't think he would remember. Sir, its a pleasure to have you on BC. Please share your thoughts about the current situation.

While I agree that Saber Hossain Chowdhury has been the most able cricket administrator in our country's cricketing history thus far, I am forced to remind everyone that he also committed several blunders during his presidency of the BCB. Foremost among these blunders was the appointment of Trevor Chappell as Bangladesh head coach. What the hell was that all about? The second blunder was dismissing Gordon Greenidge.

So, yes, SHC has been the best so far, but that's not difficult when your competition consists of grossly incompetent fools like Ali Asghar Lobi and Lotus Kamal, etc. Also, given the blunders cited earlier, I think it would be wrong to hail SHC as the next messiah of Bangladesh cricket.

That said, I would still hope he takes over as BCB supremo, given how difficult it is to find an able administrator in Bangladesh. Heck, one would be led to believe that the whole country is run by a bunch of pea-brained idiots if one looks at the people in charge.

'Constitution changes unethical'
Sports Reporter

Former Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Saber Hossain Chowdhury said that the recent amendment of the BCB constitution was done in an undemocratic way and a couple of clauses drafted in it were immoral. He also said that it will create disharmony among different stakeholders of the country's most affluent sport federation.

“We are doing fantastic on the field. Our boys have recently won the one-day series against a full strength West Indies side. They have become the picture of national unity. But off the field we are painfully watching a clear division among the organisers. We are also witness to a lack of transparency in the manner in which amendments have been made to the BCB constitution,” said Saber at a press meet, his first in eight years, at Sonargaon Hotel yesterday.

The man who put Bangladesh cricket on a strong footing by winning Test status in 2000 broke his long silence at a time when the BCB constitution was taken to the treatment tables on a number of occasions to suit vested interests instead of the greater interest of cricket. . . . . . . . http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=261668

I have always wanted him to be the BCB president and when Awami League came in power I got my hopes up which was soon to be dashed since the government appointed one idiot after the other( lotta and then Papon)
