View Full Version : Feeling bad for HB

Okay, I have to admit first that I was bashing HB recently.
And yes still it is good for bangla cricket for him to retire or atleast give up the captaincy [done].
But I really feel for him. He thought [ad many of us was hoping deep in the heart] he has something to give as a batsman. Unfortunately he did not get any break [may be because of lots of pressure as his captaincy sucked tooooooo much].
If he does not retire NOW from the game of cricket I wish he get his form back as in old days and retire like he deserves.
I am sure we have new bloods coming in but should not forget our past [not long ago] when HB was the only one who stood up.

Good luck HB

Yes, for his sake, for the sake of his immense contributions to Bangladesh cricket (there were periods when the only positive thing going for our test status was Bashar's performance as a test batsman), I hope he gets some sembance of form back and plays just long enough to be able to retire with dignity. Bashar was never technically the greatest...depended a lot on his hand-eye coordination...so it will probably get progressively harder, as he gets older, for him to get to that consistent level of form that made him by far the most accomplished test bat of his generation.

Those days are gone!!! Now we have so many promising talented players, we have to make room for them. Recently PAK. academy coah Akib Javed admired highly about
Rakibul Hasan about getting test cap. There are few others like Rakibul waiting fo a call.
So, I don't feel sorry for Habibul. Its reality, he has to accept it. The way he was out in both innings, he lost his reflexes. Moreover his running between the wicket is so poor,
no body feels comfortable to be his batting partner. Let him play club cricket now and if
he shines there then can be considered for BD.

yeah , I also feel for him . remember ? he had told during the WC to raise our flag just as many raise the flags of argentina and brazil during the football WC . still the flag i raised then is flying high and i am least interested to put it down .

i would love to see the same old habibul bashar as a test batsman . good luck habibul bashar .

Bashar is still one of the best Test players BD has ever produced....I think it would be better for him to leave captaincy and focus on his batting.

Raqibul Hasan is from the same U/19s batch as Sakib, Mushfiq, Mehrab and Tamim. He was a steady performer at underage levels without being spectacular, but he's exploded onto the stage since then. Currently has a first class average of 57, after becoming the first player to make a triple century in our national league.

According to reports, he's a very complete batsman with shots on both sides of the wicket and a sound temperment, and he's also made a stack of runs for the A-team as well the Academy team.

He'll be in the Test team sooner rather than later.

He used to be by fav player. couple of yrs ago I watched game with his brotehr in new york. i always thought he had a good personality but he is proving it wrong. he had the chance to retire from codi atleast, but did he do that?

i don't think he will be any good in test cricket as well. he used to get runs playinbg those hook/pull, now all the team know about his strenght so they have their trap set up all the time and still he will play that shot. he is not physically strong to play hook or pull shots anymore. in test, if he plas as one down he will always put pressure to tgeh middle order by loosing his wicket. what the hell he was thinking when he was playing shots like that. was he chasing 240 in 40 overs or what? he was going after every balls. what the hell he was thinking.

He needs to retire from test and odi. period

Dear Bashar Bhai,

I have not read your interview, but from the topic of the interview I will say this: Apni ki korechhen bohu aage is what kept some hope within us that you will repeat the performance. But please, stop dwelling in the past. I do not wish you to retire if you dont want to, but do not assume your spot in the national team is irreplaceable. If you are not performing presently, then you are still welcome to relegate yourself to first class and domestic leagues till you find form. If you are one of the best then, I am sure you will find your place on the best team that we can produce. Do not be so shortsighted and point to your stats from 3 years back, as it wont justify what you are doing now. Best regards and wishes to you.

To my disappointment Prothom Alo elsewhere mentions that most probably Bashar will be kept as Test captain in SL.

So this means, more heartache and headache for us (for me at least). I will only feel sorry for him when is no longer in the team.

unfortunately an inform Bashar has no replacement in test team... at least not yet...And nobdy in the whole team including all those "exciting" young kids have the consistency to have a confirmed spot in the test team. Untill then Bashar can continue to be the Test captain without any problem.

For those who is feeling sorry for Bashar, hate to tell u guys but it is better for him to retire now. He is out of form for last 2 years and his captency isn't giving us anything new. Seems like we are staying at the same place or may be going back as far as his captency goes. Its time for a new dawn for the BD cricket. With a new coach, a new captain should take over both test and odi and take us to a new direction.....a more positive one. Thanks to HB for his contribution in the past years but now he should accept his current situation and give his space to someone new.

Don't feel bad, feel proud for the good things he has done.

Lara or Inzy didn't retire under the best circumstances either. It's unfortunate, Bashar faced a similar fate. At least he faced it himself.

I've been following Bangla-cricket website since the start of the World Cup, and it hurt me deeply how people started going off at him right from the middle of the World Cup. I agree he didn't have the form even then, but I just got the feeling people just wanted to see the back of him, even though he led us to the 2nd round.Michael Vaughan never played well in ODIs but he was still there even during the WC coz he supposedly lifts the team spirit.

Same with Bashar. I don't think Bd would have done so well in the WC without being a bonded team.It's a job Bashar must have done well off the field. I think Bashar should retire now from ODIs and captaincy since he's totally lost form and confidence and control/respect of his team (apparently) but I find it totally unacceptable how some people in this forum referred to him as a pathetic loser.I mean com'on, do you think most of us could ever give to Bangladesh in any way how much he has given or gain from life how much he has got.I'd like to hear an argument from those ppl if they wish.

I still remember the days Bashar used to be criticised for being over-attacking,and for missing the centuries.<B. class=inlineimg title=Loser smilieid="48" alt="" border="0" src="images/smilies/loser.gif" pathetic.<img find I one the not he?s And player. a as tests in give to more got feel /> I feel he still has got more to give a a batsman in Tests.And I don't think he's the one who's pathetic.</B>

spot on .

also , as somebody has mentioned ... for the last 2 years , bashar is out of form . i would love to remind him , apart from the WC and the india series , bashar had done pretty weel for the last 2 years . and for your kind information , he has increased his overall career oneday average during this time . and how have you forgot the last test series bangladesh played before the test series with the indians . only 13 month back ... i hope 13 month do not make 2 years . 1st test , 1st day in that series ... shariar nafees and habibul bashar had the most fluent and brilliant partnership i have seen for bangladesh in test cricket .

i think having balanced and nutritious diet will sharpen your memory . thank u .

Reading that interview I feel Bashar's pain. I think he's doing the right thing. If he can fight back into the ODI side then power to him. As for the Test matches, I think he needs to resign there as well. His outs seem to indicate an indecisiveness has crept into his game. Either he's poking around or essaying overly ambitious shots. Let him forget about everyone else and worry just about his game. Perhaps then the Bangla Bradman will return. And perhaps he'll be able to walk away from the game on his own terms.

bashing the bash got way too personal at one stage... our passion combined with his defensive and rather blasé attitude with regards to the facts on the pitch, brought out the very worst in all of us. that being said, i forgive him for not converting enough of those 50's into 100s, and wish him all the best.

22.1 Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, no run, DROPPED! short of a good
length delivery, pitched in line with the off stump and moving
away a bit, Tendulkar tries to defend it and ends up with a thick
edge, Habibul Bashar at first slip fails to hang on to an easy
chance, costly miss!!

Yes it was a costly miss by Bashar. Tendulkar went on to add another 220 runs!

he still good enough player, and with such a young batting lineup, his experience with Ashraful is much needed. Let him go and correct a few things and he will be back hopefully. I remember he used to be called 'Mr conversion', coz he scored so many 50s but not many 100s. he still got the talent
