I am wondering how did he passed in the fitness???? :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D


Dwayne Leverock

A throwback to a long-lost era, Bermudan policeman Dwayne Leverock is large by any standards, and one of the politer observations from a journalist at the recent World Cricket League was that he was "massive". A talented and naggingly accurate left-arm spinner, he struggles with the bat in that he cannot really run more than a single, and hiding a man closing in on 20 stone in the field is a captain's nightmare.

He's way too big all right, but he can put up some pretty darn economical bowling figures every now and then.

i don't think too much rice alone can do this much damage. his diet must be very bulky of red meat and fat as well.

Lets see. Better average, strike rate *and* economy rate than Bangladesh's old captain.

I'll take fat over useless, any day of the week.

C'mon Ian, Khaled Mahmud took those wickets against big guns. He is not that lucky to play against Zim/Ken/Scotland or Bermuda in ODI to pluck wickets. All those are hard earned wickets.

I have nothing against Leverock but comparing him with Khaled Mahmud is comparing apple with oranges. :)

I am with Ian on this one. Absolutely anyone is better than Khaled Mahmud in batting bowling and fielding. Is there any other aspect left in cricket? No, I thought so. So to sum it all up Khaled mahmud is arguably the worst player to represent a team in an international match. That is my view period.

OK, so lets look at Fat and Useless' record against Kenya


5 41 169 7 2/20 2/38 24.14 4.12 35.1 0 0

</pre>Geez, 24.12 average. Thats impressive against one of the true minnows of the game.

Take them out, and he has 60 wickets for 2696 runs, or an average of ummm 44.9. No, that cant be right. Yep. 44.9

OK, what about Zimbabwe ?


12 101 444 13 4/19 2/42 34.15 4.39 46.6 1 0</pre>
OK, lets take them out too. 47 wickets for 2254 runs, or an average of 47.9

Ian Whitchurch

Ian, I think you can recall your memories about the old Zimbabwe team against which khaled Mahmud took those wickets. They were far better than current Zim or even current Bangladesh team.

Leverock played only one match against a test playing nations (and that's one of the bottom ranked Bangladesh) and he returned with 62 runs in 10 overs with no wickets.

OK, as you pointed out, Mahmud took 47 wickets against top ranked test playing teams with an average of 47.9.

Period.

Maybe Khaled Mahmud is a worthless cricketer but he is worthless in Bangladeshi standard. He can still play for Bermuda for another three years considering their fitness requirements. I can't believe we are comparing him with Leverock who has no experience whatsoever against a test playing nation.

Whats there to grow up if you call a spade, a spade ? :timeout: You need to be more objective in asessing other people's criticism I guess. NO one can show that Khaled Mahmud is anything but a terrible cricketer stats wise or ability wise whichever criterion you chooose will give you the same output. Stats wise there is no scope for arguement but ability wise if any fool thinks KHaled mahmud is any good as an international cricketer then I have serious doubts about his/her cricketing judgement.

Khaled Mahmud was a much better player in the 90s than at the end of his career. And this cricketer from Bermuda was a policeman in the 90s and now a cricketer. :-D

I guess you can't eat sleep or drink without thinking about KM. This thread is about bermuda spiner not about worst player in the universe. so stick to the point.

If you had taken the pain of going through all the posts then maybe you wouldnt have needed to make this post of your own. I suggest you go through the posts once again and maybe you will find out that I did not bring Khaled Mahmud's name out of the blue. Just because the thread says that it is about bermuda's spinnner does it mean that any other topic is taboo? Your post would have made sense if I brought up Khaled mahmud out of the blue which I did not. So yes to sum it all up just go through the thread once again and maybe this time you will know how Khaled mahmud's name came into the discussion. Moreover in a forum it is very normal to stray off the thread subject. No need to get worked up over that.

Cummon guys, have some compassion for Chacha, he was a true fighter and he played a very significant role in our Famous WC victory over Pakistan.

By the way, from listening to the commentary of the first match, it seemed the Bermuda fatty is pretty good in fielding. At least the commentators were very impressed.

Mr. Shahriyar,

May be u have a great cricketing knowledge but before calling somebody a fool, u need to take a hard look at yrself at the mirror first.

As far as KM is concern, no one saying that he was a great cricketer in international level but he was always one of the good one in BD standard. That's why he played for the national team for so long and captained the team after disastrous 2003 WC when all the players' moral was so low.

I think we talked abt him enuf. So I shud also stop right here.

First and foremost, The sentence with the word "fool" was a generalized one and not meant for any particular individual. If you were offended by that, I apologize as that was not my goal.

Now once again I cannot agree to what you said in your second paragraph about Khaled Mahmud. When I was saying he was a terrible player I was talking in terms of Bd cricket aftr going international ie getting Test Status. This still baffles me how a player like him managed to play for Bangladesh for the number of matches he played. Yes he was a fighter and a player with grit but I never questioned his committment but rather his woeful ability as a cricketer which I will stick to even now. He is just a misfit in international cricket.

We are having a lively discussion with difference of opinions so I do not see why you or any one else should stop talking about this subject but if you do then that is your prerogative.

Chacha also had his moments against big teams. But I think I'll go with IanW, since this guy is not even a professional cricketer, while cricket has been Chacha's occupation for at least one and half decade.

Always remember that "chacha" had major contribution/luck in the win against the Paikkas.
I can forget and forgive him for 100 bad matches for his contribution in that match against the paikkas.
