Mashrafee takes Zimbabwe as a Personal mission for future!

BD pace spearhead Mashrafee has really taken Brendon Taylor & Zimbabwe to be is personal mission to accomplish after the pathetic 3rd ODI defeat on ZIM soil. As reported by several media souces... even before the ending of Kenyan tour, Mashree had mentioned that he will take it to be his personal mission to take care of Taylor next time BD meets ZIM. And after returning home to BD early morning today Mashrafee announced his statement once more “It will be good to have Zimbabwe once more in front of us... and looking forward to our meet with them in the Champion’s Trophy!”

It seems Masree is really made of a very different Gene than many of our other team-members... having the guts and the killing spree we have been lacking for long in our team. Best of luck to Koushik and all the best for his assassination plot in 2/3 months!

Nothing will happen, he won't gona be able to do anything. Zimb are not like BD batsmen who gives away wicket if u give them full toss.
But i like his attitude and wish him all the best so that he works hard more to accomplish his goals.

I like the fire he is showing. However, I would love to see him from now on stop talking to the media and do the talking on the field.

He had a chance to prove on the 4th ODI. Didn't see the fire then. But people change. Wish him the best of luck.

There are two kind of people. One is scared to lose and the other one just hate to lose. Masrafee definately belongs to the second group. Most of the time, after this kind of failure we see players losing confindence but thats not the case with him. He came back stronger than ever against Kenya and I trust his words. I am sure we will see a nice contest between him and Taylor next time. Good to see some rivalry building.

Thats not the point. Something like this is what Masri is aiming to do. :)

He just needs to focus on the champions trophy. what he will do against zimbabwe, bowling 4 short pitches in an over to provide some chin music for the zimbabwean batsmen?

I'm genuinly enjoying this Fire that's burning inside Mash's head very very much! I hope he turns this fire into a volcano and washes away atleast one more opponant(besides ZIM) .. taking us through to the Champ trophy final round!

Very precisely put!

This also goes into the guts of why our "batting stars" are not consistent. They are either too eager to show off and be the star or they are nervy and scared of failure.

If everyone else had the same spirit of "hating to lose" ... our storylines would be different.

Again, very wise Sadi.

Man, Mash just possesses the same type of agressive attitude which Brett Lee has for the coming Ashes. I infer we're in for some serious cricket this winter.

after the kenya series masrafee is full of confident. he had a very bad day against zimbabwe in the 3rd odi. he knows that day he let his team down. i like the fire in him. i believe that even with the series lose we are alot better team then zimbabwe. fast bowlers needs to be agreesive. nothing is wrong with a little trash talking before a series but masrafee needs to back it up with his performance. i think he will run through zimbabwe batsman like he did against kenyan batsmans.

jokhon dorkar chilo tokhon he F****** delivered four full tosses and lost a match that was all but won. Ekhon after showing some heroics against Kenya a side who has become only worse with time he is trash talking. Nothing but another foul mouth in the BD team. Jaiga moto kichu korte pare nah khali pok pok kore. As someone else rightly put above in the posts stop talking and do sth let your actions speak.

Personally... I have big faith on this lad.

The responsiblity of the series loss against Zimbabwe can, in no way, be on Mashrafee alone. Yes he is responsible for the 3rd match loss. But, to be honest, it's the batsmen of our team who are really to blame for giving such a pathetic sereis alltogether... including the Kenyan one. Most of our top & middle-order were completely irresponsible throughout the 8 matches and there was still the chance to recover the series after the 3rd ODI loss.

Every top batsmen of the team are supposed to have this kind of aggression towards the ZIM team after their loss... but none of them stepped forward to take the blame and take things on their shoulders. None of the batsmen said anything like "we will make-over for this heartbreak". Whereas... below is the path of Mashrafee after the 3rd ODI:

4th ODI against ZIM:BD won the toss and decided to bat first.
#Fall of wickets:1-21 (Rajin Saleh, 6.6 ov), 2-73 (Aftab Ahmed, 14.2 ov), 3-82 (Mohammad Ashraful, 16.6 ov), 4-102 (Alok Kapali, 22.5 ov), 5-137 (Shahriar Nafees, 33.5 ov), 6-157 (Farhad Reza, 38.1 ov), 7-160 (Mohammad Rafique, 40.4 ov)-Bangladesh shattered already as a gift from our beloved top/mid-order.
#Mashrafee comes to crease...and within 2 overs he is limping with foot injury. Asks for a runner but Prosper Utseya denies him.
#He has to bat with his injury. Yeat he scores a patient & valuable 23 of 39 balls for the team. Everyone worried what he will do while bowling. When he is out.. BD is 9-197(48.3 ov).
#Then he comes to bowl to defend BD's below par 206. Bowls 6 overs giving 24 runs. Got no wicket, but still was economic enough with his injured foot. He doesn't get the chance to finish off his last 4 overs since the spinners fail miserably in the match and ZIM win it in 41.4 overs.

5th ODI against ZIM:
Mashrafee is left out of the game since he is injured and the series is already decided.

ODI Series against Kenya:
Well.. you all know the story from here. He crushed Kenya on his own. He bowled bad in 2nd ODI again.. but it was quite a lot Odoyo's day. Yet the target remained a miger 185. Still... our beloved Batsmen were able to set a plot to put 'chunkali' in the team's face. Mash stepped in and he was not prepared to suffer any loss against a team like Kenya. Did any of the batsmen step out like him? You all know the answer.

Yes, I do blame him for the 3rd ODI loss.. but can't really blame him for the series loss like many of you. Yes the team was morally down.. but it's not Mashrafee's responsibility alone to bring it up. What are the captain and the 'superstar' batsmen in the team for? Or our team is full of a bunch of lollypop kids? Why Khaled Mashud is smilling with 32 teeth exposed after coming back to BD? Why none of the Batsmen are taking any responsibilies?

I will boo the top/mid order of the team and IMO, they are our real worries for the Champ Trophy and every tournament onwards. Mash is practically a safeguard for us in many situations if we want to save our faces.

Odoya is by no means a top class allrounder. No one in the Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and Kenya team can be termed a world class allrounder. To get thrashed like that by odoyo for the number one fast bowler of Bangladesh shows where he stands. Odoyo beating the hell out of the bangladesh bowlers show their limitations. I might sound harsh but If odoyo can do this to mshrafee then think what better batsmen can do to him in the end overs. Even irfan pathan is a better batsman than odoyo. Mashrafee should never bowl in the death and his quota should be done with, within the 30 overs where he will have much more to offer. We need to find other bowlers for bowling at the death.

August 19, 2006, 03:54 AM
btw I am not trying to denounce Mashrafee just that he is the worst death bowler we have. So we should let him shine at things he is good at. Bowl his quota b4 the death when he is very good and he is more than a useful batsman. In fact he is the best we have in terms of committment. Management should use him judiciously during the ODI matches. JOr kore shesh e bowl koranor kono dorkar nai when he clearly doesnt knwo how in that situation. Razzaq might be a better option along with shahadat.

I can't agree with you. he is our best bowler and he will learn how to bowl by bowling. I remember how poor indian bowlers where at the end. ACtually other then Pak no othe country had bowled good at the end when batting team have 4/5 wkts left. And that's how pak won the wc as played slow in the top and anda kunda pitani at the bottom to post score above 250. So why do u expect that he will start bowling good at the end fom no where...
He is learning and he is our best bowler and if some one can learn quickly its him.
Please don't try to close the game with spinners or midum pacers it will be a disaster..

i dont think anyone in their sane mind would blame one single player for a lost game, let alone a series. i can still say we would've won the 3rd match, had we batted better and posted a bigger total - which is definitely expected of our star studded batting lineup. or had we held onto a couple of chances that we floored. how do you blame just masri for the 3rd odi loss? the man was not bowling full tosses on purpose (do i really need to explain why?). he was trying to bowl yorkers (which is pretty damn hard, i'm sure all the pacers on this board would know), and that you are supposed to do. as mash bowls more and more, he'll get more control over his yorkers.

as per his statement, i always loved a player with passion for the game he plays. nobody has it more on our team than masri.

Don't know why some of your posts look very pessimistic to me. At least we can hope for something good in the upcoming days of bd cricket. So never despair my friend!

He IS a pessimist. Even if BD is doing well, he'll find a way to be negative... Now look what our team has done to him... poor thing.

If you want an optimist, Cricman is your man.

To be more specific... he is BC Forum's resident Pessimist. Even his nickname SS comes from the two anchoring-letters of PeSSimism. And so far he has done a good job as per his designation. :)

But sometimes recently he is failing to be up-to-the-mark as per his nick... because I could find words of hope and appreciation even in his posts. ;)

If he has so much believe on himself, why not target Srilanka. Last time Sl also murdered him. We could win without his contribution againest zimb but definately can not win without him at the moment. Other wise as nasif khan say this is ajaira

Mashrafee is a choker. Period. One player that comes to mind who has nerves of steel is aftab. He is the only player of the bangladesh team that I think is least bothered by situations and his finishings in the match winning knocks prove it. He never talks big to the media and I think if anyone in the bD team will be a performer in the future it is him. He will let his actions speak, unlike mashrafee who is a good bowler and an adequate batsman but will always be a choker.

Anyway, I am an optimist as well, not only Cricman :)

I do believe Mashrafee will make a good come back against Zimbabwe. He did show his class against Kenya even though it's not the best team but comparable to zimbabwe. Let us not forget that it was him who made us win the series in Kenya. we needed 60 odd runs and he showed guts wining us the game, i doubt that even one of our specialist batsman couldnt do that. this has shown his character and determination, a real test of mental strength. you guys should reliase that mashrafee was still suffering from the shock and would be hard for him to make a comeback on 4th ODI. I must say that the pitch was terrible in Kenya, really hard to bat on.

I must say losing in zimbabwe was really dissapointing as it shouldnt have happened. Technically we are alot better team as any cricketer would know that but ODI are about suprises and the best team doesnt win all the time and even a series.

Mashrafee has the right attitude as fast bowler...despite bowling dismally at the death of the third game i thought he was the best fast bowler in the series. Shahadat i also thought he has the right fast bowler attitude..i mean the way he stares at the opponent and says a few words at them after bowling is quite good. Backing up what you say on the field of play is another thing, the attitude is more important to me.
Its good to see y'all admiting Zim is better than Kenya cuz just before the Zim series i remember there was a ridiculous topic as to which team is the better than the other.

Keep it up Mashrafee, datz the attitude we will try and get hold of Taylor and let him know about this cuz if its gunna be a rivalry then both parties should know whats going down. I can understand where this kid's anger is coming from cuz during the forth game when he was the long on fielder the Zim spectators where shouting all sorts of things to him like {we bribed Mashrafee , your lucky number must be 17, Taylor proved you a toothless Tiger and some nasty things aswel}
