According to Prothom Alo, Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, the best opener of Bangladesh, is working very very hard to get his form back.

Smart player like SN knows that industry is the key to success. His hardwork will pay him back, hopefully in the SL series.

GO SN GO. TAME THE LIONS. MAKE US PROUD AGAIN.

Great to hear working hard, which will be key to the success for all. But lions work harder than tigers.
It's too late for him to start 'working hard' before the SL series. His techniques needed to be corrected in the worldcup when his footwork was not good and also he was having problem facing balls away swing movement.

I hope it works out for SN. He is too good of a batsman to miss out for so long.

Really like this kid's attitude, there's no bitterness, no pride, and certainly no self-pity. He could have been a good captain as well. I am sure he will come back strong, you don't score 3/4 centuries in a year by fluke.

Yes, you are correct, however, you score 3-4 centuries if you play the teams like Zim and Kenya who are at their lowest ebb.

Having said that, I trully appreciate and encourage his attitude toward the game, there's no short cut in life and the sooner a player like him understands that is better for Bangladesh.

It is nice to see a confident, hardworking, and positive person in BD team. I have no doubt that he will be one of key players in the team. However, I am so upset, because he does not have a good helping hand to improve his techniques. If he is an Australian then he will be not be alone in the field.

Yes, but he was usually opening with one other person, and I don't think they had the same stats as him.

I hope his hard work pays off in the matches against Sri Lanka. I have a feeling his time has come to prove his critics wrong about his current poor form. Maybe he can stop giving away wickets too early in the game and stay at the crease for longer, well i hope he does.

Anyone nice enough to post an english summary.
Debobrotho: (translation)
Everyone else were enjoying the time off. Some at the villages, some at their homes (city). slapping a bag on his shoulder he arrived at the Mirpur Indoor stadium.

Turning on the bowling machine relentless hours of batting started. sweating like hell, the indoor mat dampened. Tiredness creeping in, body almost revolting. Still he continues. He has a tough fight ahead, he has make some runs. Runs are the only answer for Shariar Nafees.

2006 prothom alo best sportsman of the year Shariar Nafees can speak with great logic. That's why clear logic of working hard on a break wasn't unknown to him, "The day Hayden scored his 1st WC century he had practiced over two and a half hour before going in. Hard work will pay off." To get that reward, right after the Indian series ended he started his training. He is not only working hard but he in a process he is rediscovering himself and finding his weaknesses and analyzing them. This has helped him understand some issues. Mistakes were being made in some places, Every thing has an explanation. "I am coming and going in the crease. This can be explained in two ways. One, Ah! It's my bad luck! But the way I want to see it is I made another mistake today."

He discovered his own mistakes. Solution? That is also known to him. He didn't had ask help from others. He doesn't like asking help too much. But he could not help but ask help from a person. Coach Nazmul Abedin Fahim. Shariar's "Fahim Bhai". Big or small, for any kind of problem of Shahriar's call is made to Fahim. In this break also what mistakes were being made while batting, how the mistakes are being made; Shahriar ran to Fahim to double check.

This fight to the finish is all for to get back in to runs. But why it should be like this? Last year, who's bat was full of runs, why would his bat would not get runs? The sudden change of the world makes Shahriar lonely(oshohai)? Not at all. "This could have happened much earlier. Almost every batsmen in the world in the beginning of their career, at times, had to face the same situation. I am blessed that I had a run of year and a half. The answer matches the gratious, eyepoping, marvelous, beautiful (added few lol) as an inform Shahriar.

This fight is bring back the runs towards his direction. Battings action is coming back, He can feel it in the nets. But he has to convert this in to runs. he has to come back in the one day squad. Replacing Javed Omar or Tamim Iqbal. This challenge has made his fate firm. He don't have much belief in fate. That's why this is another platform of his continued fight "this is very good for me. Once I comeback I would coming back after winning all these fights. I don't want to play single day just by using my name."

When will be that return? The Answer was ready, "It may very well be in this Sri Lanka series. May be in two months. could be after two years. But I will get in to runs."

+++++
Sorry, could not translate the way I would have liked but for the time being this is the best I could do.

Good stuff SN. Work away... rectify that footwork of yours (tendency to stay stuck on the crease and go on the back foot) He will be bak, not as a minnow-basher, but as a dominant opener alongside Tamim, to dominate the top dogs. Got my full confidence in him. Its a matter of time really. McInnes' pet has valid reasons to be so :)

June 8, 2007, 10:57 PM
Like someone said before, hard work is not enough, he need to convert it to runs. Srilanka would be a tough contest for him. It will make him or break him. As far as i can understand he needs some exercise with his arm muscles.

Test is not the place to get the form back because price of of a wicket too much to bear. It is the domestic cricket where a player can do 'test and trial' to get the form. Even jaysuriya, Ganguly were out when they were out of from. It is the st...pid Farooq who is taking these stupid decision to include him in the test to make SN's life difficult and our life miserable.

If SN comes back to form, that could bring amazing results for BD in this tour. But his problem clearly is not picking the inswingers. that's much more than a form problem. I am not sure he can do it, until I see him doing it right.

He has a basic prob.

If there is no swing in SL bowling, then may be he will succeed.

wonder what took him so long to understand that "Industry is the key to success". After losing the vice captaincy and even a position in the team at last he understands. I thought he was a smart player and should've done all those hard work before the India series. L-)

I think he was working hard in that time with his newly married wife. And after losing the vice captaincy and a position in the team his wife didn't allow him much to spend any energy with her anymore.. :p

Just because he is working hard now doesn't mean he didn't work hard before.

Quoting Ahmed B:
Their opinions about Test vs. ODI batting:
Shahriar Nafees: “I feel that its far easier to score 100 of 50 balls than 50 in 100 balls. You can play the shots you wish in ODI. You can break the grammar of batting here. But a Test Match demands patience. It requires a reverse behavior. Here you have to stretch a 50-run innings to as far as you can. Its always tough to reverse your habit.”
So what is the ultimate solution?

S. Nafees: “These habits cannot be changed overnight. Even one National League a year is not enough. IMO, cricketers should be introduced to 4-day cricket from the U-13 & U-15 level. In that case, they will get used to it from early age.”


Just because he is working hard now doesn't mean he didn't work hard before.

We have seen it and we know he can do it. But hard work only pays if that was systematic and to the point. If someone is weak in geometry and starts emphasising in algebra, calculas, arithmetic, trigonometry cos only he is very adept in those it never gives you the result you are looking for. He was probably working hard on his strengths while being soft on his weaknesses.

in Practice match, he played in ODI style relying on boundaries so score as fast as possible, either he was too confident or he was trying to defy his selection. I am not sure how much he worked hard, he needs to go back in league cricket perform and then return if he is having trouble. Otherwise, he will be in pressure all the time.
