Check this out:

http://www.ajkerkagoj.com/2007/June11/sports.html#7

For thsoe who cant read Bangla,, basically, it says, Nottinghamshire asked Sakib whether he is interested in playing for the team and how much money he wants. Sakib replied back in asking what other perks he gets if he to sign for the team.

So Nottinghamshire is Pro40 Division One team and not a rainhill type weekend team, if I am not mistaken. Good news for Sakib.... seems like there are people who are scouting these talented players...I hope this works out for Sakib as this will be probably a major step for a Bangladeshi player.. Bulbul, Ashraful's stint dont count as they were not really pro-league.

It would be good for Sakib to have experience on alien condition.
Also performing good on the league might also give him a chance to play in County as well.

All in all, any experience is good and this will only help him to be a better player in the future.

Does the article say why Notts is interested in him ? Sakib will be available from late July to early September, between the SL tour and the 20-20 World Cup (assuming that he doesn't want to play in the two weeks before the SL tour).

The current overseas players for Nottinghamshire are Stephen Fleming and David Hussey (http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/NATIONAL/ENG/FC_TEAMS/NOTTS/ ) New Zealand and Australia have no engagements before the 20-20 World Cup, so both should be available till then.

Some conjectures are that Notts wants Sakib to play in one form of the game (say only one days), Fleming wants to take a break before the 20-20 World Cup, or that Sakib is not expected to be part of the Bangladesh side for the 20-20 WC because he is too slow (while Fleming will play for NZ).

no doubt this would be a great oportunity for him and his career....playing with the likes of Stephen Fleming as his captain would be a great way to learn more about being a good cricket player.....and hope fleming is there to guide him

Oh wow. Greatest news I've read in this past week!!! Great for Sakib. Playing for a full county team! and I hope he gets it for first class squad as well. Sakib should take this opportunity outright. Remuneration and perks may be important, but this is an opportunity knocking big time!

Congrats to Sakib... I hope it works out for him.

BTW, I want Sakib in my 20-20 team... he is crucial for the balance of the team. Not every member of the has to score at more than run a ball... needless to say, his bowling will also be very useful. I am curious if he will play in the first team or their second team.

There was an article in Inqilab yesterday,it said,Ashraful Fetched the Job for Shakib.The officials there asked him to name a good allrounder,while he was in Rainhill,and he recommended Shakib.

I'll try to find the link for that.

ANyways are you sure it is Nottinghamshire.. or just another lilttle club like Rainhill in Nottngham..???????????????
I do not see any players in BD matured enough to play in County..My Dad played first class cricket for Royal Airforce in England, My cousing played for county Cricket.
My Dad played for GimKhana Club and he does not see any firstclass caliber in our cricketers....
WHat he believes is no one applies footwork.. all wristy playres for good oneday cricket...
You guys may disagree..
Once our domestic cricket developed and matured automatically we will get more and more developed first class cricketers..
it is about mindset and psychology...

A county team is allowed only two overseas players at time. So Fleming, Hussey and Sakib cannot play together.

You don't know about British press. :)

If anyone is linked to any club, they make a big news. Once the deal is finalized, they run a number of follow up news.

The only way this news got published in Bangladesh is because of the player who was contacted. It wasn't that the club contacted Bangladeshi newspapers for publishing it. Right bro?

I'm not surprised about British press either. They may have no clue about it. How often do Nottinghamshire people hold press-conferences where they talk about the players they've contacted but haven't received a "yes" yet? They need to be professional here. Nothing can be more insulting to them even when they're paying high and are respectable but still the player doesn't accept the offer. I guess Ford's refusal to accept India's offer leaves a valuable lesson for us all? :)

Y, he is Mike Hussey's brother.

Shakib would be an interesting choice for Nottinghamshire. Although he's undoubtedly a brilliant prospect, I thought the overseas players tended to be established players brought in to ramp up a side, rather than young players who are still developing their potential. (No doubt I will now be proved wrong by each of you coming up with at least 10 examples of young overseas pros in the county game...).

To the Guys who are

over optimistic: let's not get over board with too much high hopes. If he gets the contract with Notts that, no doubt, would be the best thing for him and BD cricket.

pesimistic: it does not hurt to be positive. But I guess you folks do need to create balance for all the over optimists that we have in this thread.

Let's not argue, let's just all wish him luck and make this possibility a reality.
