Interesting article in Prothom Alo.

For those who can't read bangla, Bangladesh national team is practicing with all the upcoming fast bowlers from pacer hunt. One of those pacers are Rubel, whose action is very similar to Malinga and he bowls quite fast around 84 mph.

এক দশকেরও বেশি শ্রীলঙ্কার বোলিংয়ের সমার্থক হয়ে আছেন চামিন্ডা ভাস ও মুত্তিয়া মুরলিধরন। শ্রীলঙ্কার বিপক্ষে যেকোনো ম্যাচের আগেই প্রতিপক্ষের ব্যাটসম্যানদের চোখের সামনে ভেসে ওঠে ওই দুটি মুখ। বাড়তি প্রস্তুতিও নিতে হয় এই দুই বোলারের কথা ভেবে। ‘দুই বোলার’ কথাটা আর ব্যবহার করা যাচ্ছে না বেশ কিছুদিন ধরে। এই দুজনের সঙ্গে যে যোগ দিয়েছেন লাসিথ মালিঙ্গা।
কানে দুল, রঙচঙে চুল, ব্যতিক্রমী বোলিং অ্যাকশন−এ সবই মাঠে তাঁকে আলাদা করে দেয়। কিছুদিন ধরে আরও আলাদা করে দিচ্ছে দুর্দান্ত গতি আর দারুণ বোলিং। গত বিশ্বকাপেই মালিঙ্গা বুঝিয়ে দিয়েছেন, শ্রীলঙ্কার মুখোমুখি হওয়ার আগে ভাস-মুরালির মতো তাঁকে নিয়েও এখন ভালোই ভাবতে হবে প্রতিপক্ষকে। শ্রীলঙ্কা সফরের আগে বাংলাদেশও ভাবছে। ব্যতিক্রমী অ্যাকশনের কারণেই মালিঙ্গার বোলিং খেলার প্রস্তুতি নেওয়া কঠিন। বাংলাদেশ দলের ভাগ্য ভালোই বলতে হবে, মিরপুর স্টেডিয়ামে নেট প্র্যাকটিসেই তাঁরা পেয়ে গেছে ‘মালিঙ্গা’কে!
‘আসল’ মালিঙ্গা যে নেট অনুশীলনে বাংলাদেশের ব্যাটসম্যানদের সাহায্যে হাত বাড়াননি, সেটি আপনার বুঝে নেওয়ার কথা। নেটে বাংলাদেশের ব্যাটসম্যানরা যাঁকে মালিঙ্গা মনে করে খেলছেন, তাঁর নাম রুবেল। মালিঙ্গার সঙ্গে অ্যাকশনে, মিল বলের গতিতেও। অধিনায়ক মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল তো রীতিমতো বিস্নিত এই ‘মালিঙ্গা’র পারফরম্যান্সে, ‘ওর শুধু অ্যাকশনে মিল আছে, তা-ই নয়। বলের পেস আর সুইংয়ের কারণেও ওকে সামলানো মালিঙ্গাকে সামলানোর মতোই কষ্টকর।’
নেটের ‘মালিঙ্গা’ রুবেল আসলে গ্রামীণফোন পেসার হান্টের আবিষ্ককার। বাগেরহাটের এই তরুণ ঘণ্টায় ৮৪ মাইল গতিতে বল করে পেসার হান্টে দ্রুততম বোলারের স্বীকৃতি পেয়েছিলেন। শুধু রুবেল নন, পেসার হান্টে আবিষ্ককৃত আরও পাঁচজন ফাস্ট বোলারকে এবার প্রথম দিন থেকেই ডেকে নেওয়া হয়েছে বাংলাদেশ দলের অনুশীলনে। সেই সঙ্গে একাডেমি ও বয়সভিত্তিক দলগুলো থেকে আসা পেসাররা তো আছেনই। এখন পর্যন্ত নেট প্র্যাকটিসে মূলত গতির সঙ্গে লড়াই-ই চলছে বাংলাদেশের ব্যাটসম্যানদের।
কাল বৃষ্টি আসার আগে সকালে সেন্টার উইকেটে নেট প্র্যাকটিসটাও একটু ‘অন্য রকম’ উইকেটে হলো। উইকেটে রাখা হয়েছিল সামান্য ঘাস। তাতে বলের গতি ও বাউন্সটা ভালোই হলো। কিছুদিন আগে বাংলাদেশ ‘এ’ দল নিয়ে শ্রীলঙ্কা ঘুরে আসার অভিজ্ঞতা থেকে কোচ শন উইলিয়ামসের ভালোই জানা, শ্রীলঙ্কার উইকেট এই উপমহাদেশের অন্য দেশগুলোর তুলনায় ব্যতিক্রমী, তা যথেষ্টই বাউন্সি। প্রস্তুতিটাও চলছে তা মাথায় রেখেই।
শ্রীলঙ্কায় খেলা মানেই যেখানে দুঃস্বপ্নে মুত্তিয়া মুরালিধরনের দেখা পাওয়া, সেখানে বাংলাদেশের ব্যাটসম্যানরা তাঁর কথা ভুলে পেস বোলিং সামলাতেই এত মনোযোগী হয়ে পড়ল কেন? কারণটা জানালেন মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল, ‘মুরালিধরনকে নিয়ে যে চিন্তা নেই, তা নয়। আমরা ওর জন্যও কাজ করছি বা করব। কিন্তু আগে তো এটা নিশ্চিত করতে হবে, ও বোলিংয়ে আসা পর্যন্ত যেন আমরা উইকেটে থাকতে পারি।’ বলে হো হো করে হাসলেন আশরাফুল।

Malinga wasnt this fast( 89 - 90 miles) when he was picked in the team. And the pacer hunt 84 miles has got its flaws, Sarwar imran said that himself, the speed ought to be more. So think before u insult someone.

That prothom alo journalist asked Ashraful why the team is so keen on facing fast bowlers in net practice. To play in sri lanka is like meeting Murali in your nightmare.

In reply Ashraful said, "well it's not that we dont think about Murali. We are and will be working on him but we have to ensure that we can stay on the wicket before he comes to bowl"
That was funny :lol:

Malinga is not the fastest bowler either compared to other fast bowlers. But ther reason Rubel came to news was for his action not the speed.. Besides he is not even 21 years old bowling on a wet wicket. His clocked speed was 84 without any training and its bound to get better once he gets the training, diet, skills mastered over the years.. Hopefully he wont have to correct his action as Waskuruni had to ( which essentially changed him into a medium pacer and he flopped out)

Ditto.

The reason why we are discussing Rubel here is because of his action. He kinda reminds me of Paul Adams clone we had few years ago. Hopefully, he is a decent bowler and will make it to the top with guidence.

a raw talent is discovered who hasnt played anything yet and here in BC some of us already started bashing him or calling him looser. How come MODs are not taking any actions like deleting the msgs?

Anyway, I hope BCB takes care of him and clocking 80+ in his early sure looks a bright future. Good luck to the young man.

Well I'd imagine of all people, he'd be least worried about Murali. :)

Anyways, going back to the Rubel issue - this thread is turning out to be a case of much ado about nothing. He's very raw (probably just a street cricketer), and the mere fact that he bowls at 84 mph provides no indication of how good/bad he is. Besides, why do we have to pounce on someone the moment he throws one down at around 80? We are a hundred and forty million (on paper, more in reality) of us, so it is not a surprise that a few can bowl fast; it's how they use this resource in the long run that counts.

Quickies will come and go, and the ones that stay will take a while to get as good as the top three. We don't have to start dreaming of a newbie opening the bowling alongside Masri with the same aggression as his partner the moment he wins a pace hunt competition.

As long as you can bowl in the mid 80s consistantly, you're good. Line and length is of outmost importance here.

Kabir
June 11, 2007, 09:33 PM
I would be worried about his line/length and control over the ball more than his action.

Remember, Malinga will only be successful as long as nobody has figured out the best way to play him. As soon as that is done, he'll really be a genuine "mediocre" bowler. And to deal with that, he has to maintain his line/length properly.

That is not to say that this guy doesn't have a future. If he can show good control over the ball, he deserves a chance. And as a few of you (interest ones) have mentioned, pace is likely to change with professional training. In the end, instead of giving him a short career by depending on his bowling action, management should give him a longer career by making him bowl properly. Action, in that case, will be an extra...and who knows, he might just be successful with it.

There was a thread about "consuming meat" and India's deficiency to produce quick fast bowlers and Pakistan's abundance in this.

I think this was a good decision to find talents like Rubel and bring them on for match practice.

I share your feelings about Shahadat as long as speed is concerned. But he's not a bad bowler. I think if these guys can hurl in the mid 80s without any formal training then there might be something. With proper training if one in every 30 or 40 of these guys turn out to be something like Mashrafe then we're in reasonably decent shape.

Hmm.....Rubel has no prior experience and yet he is bowling at 82mph.....that is good new in terms of finding a genuine quickie in the making.

I hope he is nurtured well to go on to become a good decent fast bowler for our team.

P.S. Why are there some people here missing the point of this kid being a kid and having no prior practice and being a diamond in the rough? And why does this one specific member keep on dissing our bowlers only to finally reply in a post mentoning they are decent but most of the time refering to Paki bowlers when we already know how good they were? Seriously, I wish the mods would please look into the matter!

But eventually, he is lost.THey would call him b4 the south africa tour only. I heard his job is now to carry water in the abahani club as paul adams already retired and they dont' need his service anymore. Pathetic.

Link (http://www.prothom-alo.org/mcat.news.details.php?nid=NDQxNDc=&mid=OA==)

For those who can't read bangla, Bangladesh national team is practicing with all the upcoming fast bowlers from pacer hunt. One of those pacers are Rubel, whose action is very similar to Malinga and he bowls quite fast around 84 mph.
They need to let him bowl 4/5 feet inside the crease. That way, to the batsmen it would be 90+ reaction time. There are many ways to skin a cat. His purpose is to prepare the Batsmen. Not bowl in ODIs or Tests.

Could you please elaborate on that with correct reasoning without comparing our player to the Pakistani greats?

Constructive criticism is welcome but your criticisms usually are comparisons. It's like asking you "whudunnit?" and you reply is alwayspointing the finger at one certain group.

Back to the topic.

if a bowler can bowl 84 MPH without any coaching and proper guidance, he can definitely reach 90 MPH after working with his technique, bowling action and fitness training.

He should be sent to Commonwealth Bank Academy or MRF pace academy for proper guidance

I am really hopeful about this young lad.

Asadar Rahman APU should get some training from Abdur Razzak on how to bowl fast.

If Rubel has an unique style..he might do good..and ofcourse speed will increase.

i've seen him in action and you're right about him. he has the natural abilty to swing it either way and generate quick and sharp bounces on occasion. our batsmen had the hardest time dealing with him.

As Glen McGrath has shown recently, if you can pitch the ball on the exact spot six times in an over, even 78 mph is fast enough. If this young bowler is around 18 his action could be worked on to get a few more yards out of him. If he is very accurate or can swing the ball in all conditions then 84 mph could be more than enough. One of the most consistent English bowlers of the last decade was the Middlesex paceman Angus fraser. He rarely bowled above 84 mph but the line and length consistency made him unplayable when batsmen first got in.

Shahadt,Mashrafe,Enamul,all are over 6,and recently,the average height has been increasing,while it was around 5-6 some 30 years age,5-8 some 10 years ago,now its around 5-10 for the 17-20 age group.So the average might as well get to 6 feet in the future.

Tell me about it!
With the busy schedule for future (depending upon our performance) we will be needing lots of contribution from pace department, it is too much to ask for Mash+Rajib all the time. I am still not happy why BCB is not brining an bowling coach or sending more pacers to academies yet. If they are doing it, they should also let us know through their official site. All I know they sent few emergining pacers for training for few months and then it stopped. This should be a incessant process and should have a customary routine coaching.

tell me about it, its reallu surprising that one would expect someone to be bowling 100mps right of the bat. 84 without any refinement is pretty darn good and to do it on a regular basis anything above 80 is very very good. if he is young, with some refinement, i am pretty sure he would get that extra 6mps that we are all craving for ..

Judging from the picture, he doesn't seem to swing back his left-arm during the follow through which increases the pace further more. Mashrafe doesn't do it, if he did, he wouldn't have to try hard enough but get another few kilometers of speed.

Shahadat does it as does Rasel (I think).

Hmm.....no swing of the left arm and still 82mph? Good sign of course!
A little bit work on his action and he can become a bowler with his stock delivery being a 85mph-86mph ball.

For those who can't read bangla, Bangladesh national team is practicing with all the upcoming fast bowlers from pacer hunt. One of those pacers are Rubel, whose action is very similar to Malinga and he bowls quite fast around 84 mph.

As long as you can bowl in the mid 80s consistantly, you're good. Line and length is of outmost importance here.

I agree but real pace does make a difference. :)

Trigger_Tiger
June 14, 2007, 10:38 PM
I agree but real pace does make a difference. :)

Hey he already has a stock delivery of 84mph which means that when he wants to bowl fast he will be able to reach the early 90mph mark which is darn good speed.

90mph-93mph is a great thing, and that is serious pace we are talking about. I just want this kid conditioned to the full and greased up well to become our pace machine so that Mashrafe can concentrate on his accuracy and the honing of a wider variation of deliveries.

Mashrafe - The Steady Striker
Rasel - The Accurate Economical
Shahadat - The Unsettling Menace
Rubel - The Fiery Deliverer

That is how I would like to see our team in the next few months with bowlers such as Tapash/Dollar and the likes can be a good 2nd line bowler. We have plenty of talent which once conditioned can be very excellent prospects and replacements for the injured/resting player.

I just can't wait until these kids become men and I hope the transformation comes pretty soon. Remember young ones learn quick old ones offer wisdom :up:.
We have in Mashrafe a veteran and in Shahadat an experienced amongst the strike bowlers, a good thing for motivating the younger ones.

:lol: Man that was hilarious, what an analysis from just a photo, we wont need video analysis anymore ;). Can you comment on Ashrafuls batting capacity/style too from the picture?

No hard feelings bro, but i completly disagree with your analysis just from a static picture.

Coming to the topic, if he is raw and he got the pace, catch him and give him international exposure with Mash and rasel on the sides. That way he can be tuned and guided by the senior pro's.

Thats how the malinga's and shoaibs of the world were picked, catch them young and watch them grow. In My opinion, if rubel is replaces some senior pacer when he is injured or rested, he has to take even more responsibility and the pressure will be more on him.

Some talents are just meant to be picked up from the streets like the above examples.

Cheers!

It is the accuracy and swing that befool the batsmen. Pace certainly helps but the reaction time required of a batsman to handle 90mph is only marginally shorter than those hurled at mid eighties. Otherwise Brett Lee or Shoeb Akhtar would have been the leading wicket takers of the modern cricket. Instead, it is the Metronome (McGarth) who instilled fear in the minds of batsmen until his retirement.

So lets hope Rubel pans out. If not, we have nothing to loose.
