World cricket haven't seen plenty of Slow Left arm orthodox bowlers as Left-arm orthodox spin is one of the harder bowling styles to master as it requires long hours of practice to get the right line, loop, length and most importantly variety. Over the years world cricket have seen some slow left arm orthodox bowlers which include : Palwankar Baloo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palwankar_Baloo) (India), Bishen Bedi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishen_Bedi) (India), Phil Edmonds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Edmonds) (England), Tony Lock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Lock) (England), Maninder Singh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maninder_Singh) (India), Wilfred Rhodes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilfred_Rhodes) (England), Ravi Shastri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravi_Shastri) (India), Sir Garfield Sobers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Garfield_Sobers) (West Indies), Phil Tufnell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Tufnell) (England), Derek Underwood (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Underwood) (England), Johnny Wardle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Wardle) (England), Iqbal Qasim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iqbal_Qasim) (Pakistan) and Aamir Sohail (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aamir_Sohail) (Pakistan). Current cricketers who have played tests or ODI include Daniel Vettori (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Vettori) (New Zealand) Ashley Giles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashley_Giles) (England), Monty Panesar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Panesar), (England) Mohammad Rafique (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Rafique) (Bangladesh) Murali Kartik (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murali_Kartik) (India), Sanath Jayasuriya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanath_Jayasuriya), (Srilanka) Ray Price (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Price_%28cricketer%29), (Zimbabwe), Nicky Boje (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicky_Boje), (South Africa) Enamul Haque Jr. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enamul_Haque_Jr.), (Bangladesh), Abdur Razzak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdur_Razzak) (Bangladesh) and Sakib-Al-Hasan (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56143.html)(Bangladesh).Some great players of world cricket are included in the list and many of them are considered as all-rounders. Among current cricketers Vettori, Giles, Boje, Jayasurya and Rafiq can be regarded as allrounder. All these players contributed significantly to their team's overall success. Modern cricket is evolving and its very important to have allround cricketers to succeed and survive at international level.

Bangladesh is an emerging cricket nation and is slowly making impact in world cricket. It is really encouraging to see a good number of slow left arm orthodox bowlers are playing for Bangladesh and a few others are on the pipeline and on the verge of starting their career for Bangladesh. Bangladesh was never known as a country with left arm cricketers. In the past only Enamul Huq Moni was the only test level left arm cricketer. It's Mohammad Rafiq who changed the scenario for Bangladesh. His brilliance and success in world cricket encouraged young talents to follow him and that is paying the dividend for Bangladesh. Currently Bangladesh seems to have the most potential slow left arm bowlers in cricket world and the more encouraging news is most of them are allround cricketers, impressive in all departments of the game. These young lads are going to start a new era in Bangladesh cricket and I have got every belief that it is going to be the start of a bright future.

Let's have a look..

We had..
1. Enamul Huq Moni (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/55878.html) - He is the pioneer of slow left arm bowlers for Bangladesh. He was fairly successful at ICC level but failed to continue his impressive form to test and ODI level. He ended his career with some mediocre records though he was highly rated by some cricket experts.

Currently we have

1. Mohammad Rafiq (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/55973.html)- He is one of the best slow left arm bowler in current cricket. He is an accurate, rhythmical slow left-armer, played in Bangladesh's inaugural Test in November 2000 and was left out as administrators branded him as ODI specialist. Once he received the opportunity, he bounced back in May 2003, with 6 for 77 against South Africa at Dhaka which was the best bowling by any Bangladeshi in test level. Now a days he is considered as one of the best slow left arm bowlers of world cricket. He has the best arm delivery among current bowlers and is the most lethal weapon in his armory. He is easily the best allround cricketer we ever had. Now he is edging towards a notable double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets in Tests. He has set outstanding examples and high standard for young stars with his hard work and dedication.

2. Enamul Huq Jr. (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/55882.html) - This young lad has got all the ability to serve Bangladesh cricket for a long time. Enamul gives the ball a big rip from a high, economical action, and looks set to be a fixture in the squad for some time. He has got lot of varieties in bowling and even more turns and flights than Rafiq. He declared his arrival in international cricket with a remarkable 6 for 45 - and the historic final wicket in the first Test victory over Zimbabwe in January 2005, then added 7 for 95 (and 12 in the match) in the drawn second Test.

3. Abdur Razzak (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56283.html) - Slowly moving into the heart of the BD fans and making him automatic choice for the ODI team, very consistent performer with good economy rate and impressive average of 27.54 with ball. Keeps it tight and can ball with field restrictions (power play). He is doing amazing job at the death overs. He has got a numinous ability to tame world class batsmen. Maturing with bat in every game.

4. Manjarul Islam Rana (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/55991.html) - One of most consistent performer, good bowler, batsman and very good slip fielder. Doesn't have the blessings of the selectors. He is the only Bangladeshi to take wicket in his first international over. May return in the ODI squad in future. Has to fight hard to regain his place.

5. Sakib-Al-Hasan (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56143.html) - Most promising allrounder of BD cricket. He came into the limelight after blistering performance with both ball and bat in the U-19 level. Grabbed the opportunity to play for National team with two hands and Bangladesh fans are expecting him to be a regular member in the ODI squad. His ability & the calmness to play in the middle order is very much required for Bangladesh's fragile batting line up.

6. Mehrab Hossain Jr. (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56031.html) - Mehrab is considered as the most promising genuine allrounder of Bangladesh cricket. Bangladesh national team is lacking a player like him for long time. He can bat any position from 1 to 6 & is certainly knocking the door of the national team. He can solve the opening problem for BD national team for long time in both forms of the game. He plays first class matches for Dhaka Division.

7. Nadif Chowhury (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56053.html): Another young promising player. Reported for suspected action, later got cleared. Has got lot of variations with ball. He is another young allrounder in making. His inclusion in the Barisal division was rewarded with some consistent performance with both bat and ball. He can ball in long spells which is an added advantage for any first class team.

8. Nabil Samad (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56058.html) - Another very good young bowler. He has got the most impressive first class economy rate among Bangladeshi bowlers. He is used as a stock bowler in first class matches and comes at first change in the list A matches. Has got tremendous potential. Keeps the line and length tight & he resembles the bowling of Rafiq.

9. Elias Sunny (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/55883.html) :This young lad has impressive first class record. 78 wickets from 22 matches. A bit overlooked by many fans and BD selectors. He is a decent allrounder and batting is one of his major strength. He plays first class cricket for Dhaka division.

Inspiring ten bowlers/allrounders. 5 of them already made national debut and all of them are extraordinary. I feel we have real good future with these young boys. Almost all of them are quite imposing with bat & very good fielder.

This is not the end; these ten young bowlers/allrounders are picked from a bunch of left arm bowlers who are making impression in Bangladesh's international and domestic cricket. Suhrawardy Shuvo (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56138.html) is the notable absentee in the list who has just played 7 first class matches and took 34 wickets. He is upcoming and will declare his arrival sooner than later.

Bangladesh hasn't yet satisfied its well-wishers and worldwide fans with its performance. Now these young lads have to take the initiative and responsibility to take the leap. Apart from Rafiq, Razzak and Rana all of these players are under 20 years and has started playing serious cricket knowing Bangladesh is a test playing country and they have got every chance to represent Bangladesh. They came from a proper cricketing background and have basic education on cricket. They were nurtured in the under 19 and development squad and now its very important to utilize their potential properly. BCB has got the major responsibility for that and it has to ensure adequate international exposure which is very much required to make them mature and more capable. Most of them featured at U-19 world cup and proved their superiority over other test playing teams. If we can guide them properly they can well translate their success to the next level and that will be enough for Bangladesh's success in all forms of cricket. I am looking forward for those days.

This is not the end of the story and supply of young left arm cricketers to enrich Bangladesh cricket. We have some astonishing young talent at U-15 and U-17 level. At least four of them are left arm all rounders.
Bangladesh is blessed with these young talents and its very important to nourish them with proper coaching, physical training, diet and exposure. They have seen Mohammad Rafiq tormenting top order of other test playing teams and are getting ready to take the button from Rafiq. Imagine a day in future when three bowlers with the quality of Mohammad Rafiq is playing for Bangladesh and I'm sure you can predict which team is dominating and winning matches.

Among these listed young talents, Forhad Reza wasn't mentioned because it's a list primarily of SLAs. I understand. I just wanted to point out their batting abilities. The way Sakib and Forjad played with the KENSs today, sure the future bodes well for BD. I haven't seen such composure, temperament and technique in most (if not all) BD senior batters. The way Sakib was finding gaps with his cover drives and nudges, was a treat to my eyes. BD batting always makes me sweat (with nerviousness), but the way these 2 lads batted today, I felt no worries whatsoever. Just brilliant!!

I am also very optimistic with so many Left arm spinner coming up but Don't u guys think that our attack is becoming very one dimensional. If we come across someone like ganguly who is a master playing slow left arm spinners than we might be in for a lot of trouble. By the way when i say ganguly i mean the ganguly that existed some 3 years back not his shadow that exists now.

He used to play for a weak team in the league – Young Pegasus – but stood out through his performance. Lintu had great control and variety in his bowling.

To me and many others he is the pioneer of SLA bowling in Bangladesh.

I asked my father about Lintu. He is a cricket enthusist. Still at the age of 68 he watches cricket evn at mid night. It does not have to involve Bangladesh or Pakistan (his fav 2). He told me that Lintu was a very good bowler from Rajshahi. But did not play so much. May be 5 - 6 seasons.
I am interested about Ram Chand Goyala. Is he was also SLA? I never watched him but read his exploit in newspaper.

Great article Miraz bhai. All we need in the conclusion is wakeup call for the Cricket Bangladesh authority to recongnize this and nurture these talents. Also create a parmanent pitch say like in khulna for these bowlers to thrive. Then we can make sure SA, Australia or WI gets to see what SLA bowling is all about. we schedule one test there and include 4 of these bowlers :)

Lol, I am not Lintu. He lives in the USA and I live in Australia. I am not even related to him. I have just seen him play. I just mentioned this because we should be proud of our cricket heritage and I wanted to give our young members some idea about the great cricketers of the past. May be I will mention about others later if you people are interested. By the way, I first started to watch live international cricket with the tour of Sri Lanka in1977-78.

Your father is spot on. Lintu didn't play more than 5-6 seasons as I mentioned that he left for the USA for studies. Every touring captain used to praise him.

Ram Chad Goala was also a vey good SLA. He used to play for Abahani and got chance to play for Bangladesh late in his career. As far as I know his surname Goala came from his family's profession in the past.

Mehrab is considered as the most promising genuine all-rounder of Bangladesh cricket. Bangladesh national team is lacking a player like him for long time. He can bat any position from 1 to 6 & is certainly knocking the door of the national team. He can solve the opening problem for BD national team for long time in both forms of the game.

And he is selected in the Bangladesh squad for Champions Trophy. Another SLA allrounder to feature in the national squad.

Who is next,

IMO, Nazmus Sadat, not a SLA allrounder but a very good Left handed Batsman.

Wow 4 in the 14 - Rafiq, Razzak, Saqib, Mehrab
If they 4 can make first 11 in a signle game (when Mashrafi and Forhad will need to open attack), that would be a record. Was there any other team in ODI history with 4 left arm spinner in the squad?

TheWatcher
September 8, 2006, 08:18 AM
With so many SLAs already in the Bangladesh team, future is actually not so bright for upcoming SLAs like Nadif or Elias, even if Rafique retires shortly after the world cup.

My advice for the next generation of left arm cricketers is to try to be either a batsman or a pacer (preferably, be both). If you still want to be a spinner, be a chainaman bowler.

Tigers_eye

I see it other wise. The more competition the better by-product we'll have. If Elias, Nadif are turns out to be better than Razzak, Rafique down the road wouldn't you want them? Only the best would get a shot. With 6 nations mostly have pitches that helps slow bowlers I think this is a great asset to have. But I also agree that we need lefty fast. Not medium pacers.

Let me take back my words about Elias Sunny, he has quite an impressive strike rate for being an SLA. He was praised by journalists for being able to take wickets on unfriendly batting surfaces last NCL (a quality most of our bowlers lack). Also, as Miraz said, he seems to be a decent allrounder.

However, an overly SLA dependant Bangladesh side stays valunarable to opponents that have quality left hand bats. After the retirement of Rafique, I see only one spot for a specialist SLA in the team (certainly so if Shakib and Mehrab can cement their places in the national team), and at this point Razzak (oneday) and Enamul (Test) seem to be automatic choices for that position. Any national team outsider who wants to challange their positions has to raise his standard to an exceptional level.

It seems to me (after watching a number of Bangladeshi spinners in action), the slow bowlers in Bangladesh are a bit too slow. That's why they're not as successful as others from other cricketing countries. They have good spinning abilities. But their extreme slowness gives the batsman ample time to change their shot. Lack of variation is another huge deficit. So for any batsman, it takes very few balls to read the bowler and then he can bat easily. Finally the lack of consistency...in a over, Bangladeshi bowlers have to many wild balls (balls that are not according to the field placement, too much space given to the batsman, etc.). In my opinion, these are the main reasons for the lack of success for Bangladeshi slow bowlers. The cricket minds of Bangla cricket may shade some new lights on the topic?

I agree we need to change our approach. We need more variation in our arsenal ... we need to try out what these spectra light spinners can do...

to do this we need to light our indoor training pitch...
http://www.leisureopportunities.co.uk/images/LKRIDIGatewayDerby.jpg

we need to change our practice ball to tennis cricket ball...

and we need to change our spinners runups and relaese like this....

Only then we can expect some good result. Otherwise same ol same ol.....Slow Left Arm Bowlers by a hali.... buy one get three free kind of situation.

Are you sure ? On contrary to what you saying, Shakib and Nadif were often confused as medium pacers. Rafique, in his own words, was actually struggling in Zimbabwe because he was bowling too fast. Razzak also from time to time seemed to be bowling too fast and flat.

I am really confused whether you have really seen Bangladeshi SLA's in action :confused:

As TheWatcher mentioned, Sakib & Nadif are quite fast, Nabil Samad is even more quick, Rafiq's average speed is more than most spin bowlers, Razzak also bowls at a good pace & that's why he is so economic in ODI.

Regarding wild ball, I don't want to comment, check the economy rate of SLA's with other bowlers. You may find the answer.

Our slow left arm army is converting the prospect into reality.

Just 6-7 months time and what a big difference they are making!!

If our batsmen can give them some run to fight, they can take any opposition down.

Against India they shared 6 wickets for 90 odd runs in 30 overs, today they shared 6 wickets for 96 runs in 29.4 overs.

i think it's safe to say now that razzak has arrived, although it wouldn't be unfair to say so after the games against new zealand (pre world cup) and india.

So many SLAs (add Murad, Saqlain, Saju, Suhrawardi, and Mosharraf to the list made by Miraz) but we are yet to produce a test class spinner after Rafique.

Enamul Jr has shown promise, but his figures are hardly satisfactory in matches except against Zimbabwe.

I see a lot of promise in Enamul...the kid has something special in him....its hard for him to come back to the national team every few months and dropped after one or two match..he should be paired up with Rafique against SA and we need to make the pitches spinner friendly to help set back SA pace attack.

The way I see it, Rafique is at the end of his career and Enamul is yet to find his feet in international cricket - it will be stupid of us to overly rely on our spinners at this point. One positive that came out of NZ series is that our bowlers managed to take all ten wickets of opposition in their first innings. So, please people, don't ask for pitches where we won't be able to do even that.

As we were able to capture all ten wickets, the worry is ODI bowling which was more or less crap except Abdur Razzak.

This is the article I wrote about 5 years ago. Nice to see Elias Sunny who was mentioned in the article along with other promising names is going to finally make his debut in this Test match in Chittagong against the West Indies. I will be eagerly waiting to see his bowling. I hope he fares better than other who faded away like Enam Jr, Mosharraf Rubel and Abdur Razzak in Tests.

i now sometimes feel that all these SLAs are becoming a burden to us...too many of them..we are not seeing any good leg or off spinners and our attack is becoming more and more one dimensional

it's like india who are producing too many batsman and we have sla. I will say bcz of sla trend in bangladesh, we are not getting any more good leg spinner, fast bowler ar even pacer allrounder.
Now it's really become burden to us.

We shouldn't play more than 1 left arm spinner. We should find a good off-spinner or play leg-spinner Munna. He will struggle in the beginning but he will get better.

Miraz

I do not think having too many quality SLAs is a burden, it is our strength. We are a formidable ODI bowling unit because of our SLA strength. If we have another capable SLA in Test (0.75 eq of Shakib), it would be very difficult for any team to pile up runs against us at home.

A good spinner is a good spinner regardless of his style of bowling. A quality SLA is definitely better than an ordinary leggie or offie. I do not think our SLA strength is preventing anyone to become a quality leggie or offie. A leggie or offie who bowls right-handed is very unlikely to change bowling arm to become SLA. :)

And each SLA's are different than the others. Good bowlers can not be a burden.

Some teams have several Right Arm fast. Is that a burden to those teams? no. As long as they can get wickets everything else becomes immaterial.

Agree...jodi among them we could have get more LMF or LF ..as they are already SLAs hopefully some of them can be transfored into as fast...i guess it's easier to say but hard to do..few days ago Zaheer Khan mentioned something about Ind bowlers...I guess our body structure is not built to be fast bowlers...Pathan Shaheb ra Koi Shob...

Miraz's post is SLA vs Other spinners. My following post will be SLA vs Fast bowlers.

Besides Shakib, we don't have a decent spinner. But yet we are still stuffing our XI with mediocre spinners slash ALRs. Good batsmen will easily kill them. We are just convincing ourselves saying SLA is our strength.

Take a close look at India. They used their fast bowlers to take the shine off of the ball. Look where it got them. If we want to become a decent side, and start winning games away, we'll have to have good fast bowlers. We have to encourage and welcome them and stop stuffing the team with SLA.

There is a good reason why good teams have 3-5 good fast bowlers in their squad, and couple of good spinners. And that didn't/doesn't mean their spin dep. sucked. Aus, Pak are a good example of that. They structured their bowling attack around fast bowlers. And still managed to keep 2-3 good spinner around. Heck, besides Murali, and Kumble, most of the legendary spinners came from Pak and Aus. Yet, they are known for fast bowling. We are here nor there.

I have 3 questions:
1.why do we have so many SLA?
2.Why most of our top order are left handed?
3.Why our top order are too much vulnerable against left arm pace bowlers?
