They said that, S.Nafees got more opportunity with weak team rather than both of them.

I think BCB is over-reacting. I don't think it was such a big deal. Here is the link:

I have read the quote in Carte Blanche's post where it says what each of them said. I see absolutely nothing wrong in what aftab or ashraful said. IN fact they both praised the fact SN is able to take full opportunity against the weak teams plus aftab even mentioned that SN's century was a great knock !!!!! That is sheer overreaction from the BCB. I dont think this is good for the team. This action of theirs might create an uncomfortable situation in the dressing room between the two players and SN. This is horrible and the timing couldnt be any worse, just before the world cup !!!!

they are looking for scapegoats as they have to punish Khaled Mashud for his "automatic choice" remark. I just cant believe they are making a big deal out of this all of a sudden.

It's simple. BCB is making this mock trial to justify the real trial of Khaled Mashud.

I think the senior players (especially Ashraful) are talking too much to the media lately. Some of the comments made by Aftab and Ash might have perceived the wrong way by the newbies. However, I think a verbal reprimind will be more appropiate in this case instead of any official punishment. As someone already said, this may cause some unease in the dressing room environment.

AsifTheManRahman
January 13, 2007, 07:24 PM
well this shouldn't create any tension in the dressing room. we need eleven men out there, not eleven kids, and the players should realize that if there have to be any hard feelings, they should be on CB, and not on nafees, because in all fairness the comments that ashraful (don't remember exactly what aftab had said, but i thought it was more mature than ash's comments) had made were simply idiotic, and if nothing, this punishment will hopefully make him think before he talks the next time, for a change.

having said that, i do think that the punishment on aftab was unnecessary, and the one on ash a bit too harsh (a reprimand would have sufficed, as pointed out by TheWatcher). if this was to make the decision against pilot halal, then i'd say it was pretty stupid; pilot's punishment doesn't require justification - he deserved it, albeit claiming that he hadn't said what came out in the newspapers, because ek haate to r tali baje na. when it comes to selection issues, players should simply keep their mouth shut, and this doesn't have to be a part of any kind of contract. besides, reporters earn a living by coloring things up, and i'm sure that the players know that pretty well.

Whatever BCB did may have been too harsh, but you can't ignore the immaturity of Aftab and Ashraful in their take on Nafees. If nothing at all, at least they should learn that they shouldn't criticize fellow cricketers in front of media. If they had these problems, they should talk to the team management...which is the perfect spot for all these. In any case, I hope they understand that they need to grow up now...it's the sport for grownups.

:confused:I still done understand why some members are finding fault with what the duo said !!!! Infact If people read the bangla news that Carte Blanche has posted it shows clearly in point form what each of them said.

Let me start of with Aftab. He did nothing but praise the newer players and said they inspire him to perform better, praised SN's century as well and also mentioned that they are able to take advantage of the weaker sides which is all true. How is that saying something negative is beyond me.

Ashraful's comments are more arguable and shows his lack of sense but still it does not show that he was being demeaning to SN or any new player. He said that the newer players understand the game better and have played the weaker teams more in the beginning(this is the folly in his comment although it is true) but he also said that they have used that opportunity while he failed.

The problem in the dressing room would stem from SN's side and not from Aftab and Ashraful's side if there is some problem. Obviously from the actions of BCB it would seem to SN that the duo were trying to undermine his performance and this wont make him like them more now because he is human. It does not matter if you are a grown up or not if people say bad things about you and undermine you ( or if u think they are trying to) it is natural for you to feel upset with them. Both ashraful and aftab would also be in an awkward situation since BCB's action vindicate them of undermining SN's performance. Being professional does not mean you leave your heart behind everytime you go to play because they are human and emotions are bound to come into play. I strongly believe the timing of the actions couldnt have been worse as the WC is round the corner and a private verbal bashing should have been the order of the day instead of making it public and doing what the BCB has done. In fact this shows some lack of professionalism on BCB's part although I believe the cricket board has a wonderful professional structure in place now.
Given the fact that all three are very important to the bangladesh batting I think this makes it all the more worse, specially Aftab and SN are very pivotal for BD batting from my personal point of view. I just hope the players would talk it out among themselves and solve any misunderstanding that might have arose from this incident. I have hope for Aftab and SN talking it out and reconciling if they have any difference but from Ashraful's comments it seems like he is not very articulate and lacks sense or in other words less mature than the other two.

Moreover the pilot angle has not been mentioned anywhere in the report but are just conjecture from other members. I personally dont thing that makes any sense because what pilot did was extremely wrong and arrogant and deserved every bit of reprimanding he got. Infact I would have dropped him from the squad for the ZIM series just to make him understand that a place in the national team is not his father's property that it should be guaranteed for him.

Kabir
January 14, 2007, 03:56 AM
Shahriyar: The way Aftab mentioned the fact that SN found the team in quite a better situation, and he's playing better...but he himself didn't find it in a good position, but he's playing well...all these can be described as "civilized khocha". And these aren't the nicest things for star players to say in public.

layperson
January 14, 2007, 04:03 AM
Imran what he is saying is the truth. The team SN came into is a much better team than the one which Aftab came into. I dont think anyone would disagree with that. But that is just one sentence from all his comments. I think if you look at all his comments then it seems to me at least that he is praising SN. Infact both of them accepted their failure to capitalize on the weaker oppositions. I think isolated the sentence might appear offensive but taking it with all the others makes it look different to me.

Kabir
January 14, 2007, 04:09 AM
Shahriyar: It's true...agreed. I'm talking about its appropriateness. Anyway, not worth arguing about this anyway...what's done is done...I just expect the players to not comment like this in front of media...do it to the team management, where it'll make sense the most.

there was another thread on this a few weeks ago, which had a slightly more elaborate version of what they had said. on the other hand, the version that Carte Blanche posted has their words in point form, which obviously takes away a lot of it :)


Let me start of with Aftab.

i didn't find anything wrong about his comments, judging from the contents of the previous thread (i can't find it atm).


Ashraful's comments are more arguable and shows his lack of sense

once again, judging from the purano thread, it sounded a lot like ash was defending himself, and trying to make SN's performances look ordinary. nevertheless, a reprimand would have been enough - there was no need for a fine or anything.


Moreover the pilot angle has not been mentioned anywhere in the report

it was actually mentioned somewhere in the first third, but was raised by the reporter himself. shalar reporterder r kaam nai. :p

Mashud fined 50% & Ashraful 15% of an odi match fee. Aftab is cautioned verbally as well as in written.

It's sad our players are still going to kindergarden. Why they don't appreciate the good and try to take the good side from fellowmates and give SOMETHING to the team, I believe Ash and Aftab did ok last few matches but we all have to wait till the World cup comes.

hope this doesn't cost us the team spirit before the WC. BCB should have shown more comon sense before even thinking about fine and stuff. I know the playrs were guilty but they should have just warrened in closed doors...

Fazal
January 16, 2007, 11:04 AM
I am happy they are trying to address this issue before the wc2007. I hope they continue to enforce with same standard in future and player take notice about this fine.

There are couple of disturbing trend that was going on for a while in the team:

1. When ChaCha was about to retire, he was acting like a sore looser. Pilot is now-a-days acting similarly only I can predict even worst case scenario. Plus looks like a Grumpy Pilot in a team is more harmful to young players specially Rahim. At some point Bashar and Rafiq will have to go through the same process. I don't anticiapte much problem from Bashar. But I don't want to see another grumpy and loose cannon in Rafiq in near future.

2. Usually after lack of performance when Ash opens his mouth nothing but bad things happens for him as well as for the team. His excuses are lame and without merit and his arrogant comments against opponent usually bite us badly later in the series. Now Aftab is kind of following Ash's path instead of following SN's path. So far SN can open his mouth without creating controversies. Players needs to learn: there is a risk opening their mouth to the reporter; unless they can handle that, its much better for every one to keep their mouth quite.

Therefore, even its kind of harsh, I still kind of like BCB's stand.

Here is the final verdict:

"Khaled Mashud and Mohammad Ashraful have been fined 50 percent and 15 percent respectively of a (future) one-day international match fee for their recent comments published in the print media," the BCB said in a statement on Tuesday.Batsman Aftab Ahmed was cautioned for the same offence."

Have you ever heard of any one slashing 50% of some one's bread and butter?

Kabir
January 16, 2007, 12:01 PM
Oops, things got nasty and out of hand. That's quite a bit of fine here. Just some warning would have done fairly for Ashraful and Aftab. Mashud I believe deserved it?

And btw...Ashraful's verdict is probably there to signify the fact that he would be paid the money that's worth his batting at the moment? ;)

January 16, 2007, 12:02 PM
The title need to be changed. Please include KM cause he was punished the most.

As for the verdict: They all deserve it. Media deserves more punishment because of the stupid questions they ask to steer up things. All media should be banned from coming closer to the team from now on till the end of WC campaign.

They were warrened before!
It's like two brothers are complaining against their little brother in the media! Little brother's only fault is he is playing better day by day and learning fast than the others!! What a shame!!!:-P
Ashraful and Mashud should be ban for life from the BD team for their attitude and way below par performance. I guess BCB was very easy on them to cover up their attitude and below par performance too. Sakh diye vat dhaker moto er ki!:( :hairpull:

Question for Kabir Bhaia,
If the media did not have the access to the three involved to ask the questions, would this situation arise? Would SN even read these things in the internet or in the newspapers? Would there be any notion of division in the team?

The source of most of the evil is the coloring capabilities of the media on any topic to sell their papers, news etc. CNN, BBC, FOX are no different. A media ban should be always welcomed.

Since we can't just allow the good reporters and ban the bad ones, an all out ban would stop the bleeding (leaking unwanted news). Must attack the source.

FaridpurChicago
January 16, 2007, 04:12 PM
I welcome the decision of BCB. Things are addressed at right time and the punishment was quite appropriate.
If you don't control at this stage, it may become worse. This will give a cautionary signal to everyone.
Actually anyone other than captain can talk positive about co-players and nothing else. No one can talk about selection issue. I am happy that the punishment wasn't too harsh that can affect dressing room environment.

yaseer
January 17, 2007, 03:36 AM
yes guys....i also agree with you......BCCB is doing it to justify the punishment on pailot that they are trying to impose......pailot really has some enemies in board

Another surprising thing is that.....the kind of comments they are dealing with...normally team-mates der eke oporke kora kono debatable comments je kono buddhi somponno cricket board chepe jai karon eta team er moddhe tension create kore.......ar amader moha budhi somponno (!) board egula media te niye astese...i am sure ash/aftab keu nafees sommondhe orokom mean kore comment kore nai. but amader BCCB bole kotha.....

aftab started playing a year before nafees..and ash started playing since 2001..
world cup will show some changes in these numbes in terms of stronger opponents..
Nachtey na parley uthan baka...Pilot sucks anyways...This is not a right time to divide our players unity by creating unneccsassy hostility among each others by fining them, when this is the first time in may years that our BD team is playing as a team and BCB or BCCB what ever this piece of s is called is scruing our team once again......

I agree with you totally. But don't you think it was little harsh on KM and Ash? We must look at their intent. Was it that bad that KM's 50% of the match money would be taken away? We should not forget how KM has supported our team through out his career. Bangladesh is proud of this wicket keeper and his contribution to the :flag: team. I believe his contribution far exceed that of BCB officials taking action against him.
