I don't care if he's in top 20 now , I do want to see him in top 5 in over the years .

One of the best quotes out of the Australia-Bangladesh test series was Mark Waugh commentating on Sky after day 1 of the first test ... 'I dont know much about that Nafees kid, but he's treated Shane Warne like a club bowler'

Anyway Nafees seems to have far better tempermant and mentality compared to Ashraful, Kapali and Rajin. Most of our batsmen are pretty sound technically but they just need to know what shot to play when. When you talk about Ashraful, Kapali and Rajin this is their basic problem. Plus none of them have the long innings mentality. I guess that same could be said about Al Shahriar. Anyway the new generation batsmen such as Sakibul, Nafees and Mehrab Jnr do look good.
I am a bit dissapointed in Nafis Iqbal though because i thought the guy could have gone a long way. I have seen him play when he was a youngster in my neighbourhood in Mohammadpur. He used to play against guys twice his size and age and still knock the ball around all over the park. He really has seemed to lose his attacking flair and shot selection.
