Aminul Islam Bulbul to get a call from the BCB to replace one of the selectors (Faruque or Athar Ali). They might call him in a few days and if he doesnt accept this job then they would ask him to become the head coach for the Academy. Its still a rumor though..

So what do you guys think about this? Will it be a good move from the BCB if the rumor is true??

Faruque gone just like that no wonder he was not in the tour party which left for SL. I am not sure about this selector rule for Bulbul rather see him in charge of academy team.

Bulbul is one of the better cricketing minds in our country. The only problem is that he is too quick to judge then later either apologizes or admits his mistakes.....but he is overall a good prospect. I'd like to see him in a selectors role. However, I think he would make a good academy coach as well :)!!!!!

I don't know. Some of the comment he made about team selection was not appropriate.

That's what I said, he has a good cricketing mind but is a quick judge :-p!
He leaps and then looks back :(.

I am quite confused about Akram and Bulbul's role as a selector. Day before match against SA in WC-07, Bulbul and Akram criticized BD team management on an tv interview because of losing by huge margin against Aus and NZ. And they questioned about DavĀ“s cricket knowledge. But very next day after that match both of them praised BD team and said on a same tv channel that "BD cricket is on right way......and every possible words of praise".

I'd rather see him as a coach. Not much to offer as a selector. His wisdom and cricketing knowledge must and should be passed on to your youngsters.

Both Faruk and Bulbul have good cricket minds and are competent as selectors. But not together, these two don't get along.

Bulbul I can still understand but Akram Khan is a little bit too emotional I think. Not a good aspect to have as a selector.

I think Akram was appointed to counter Faruk, coincidentally both have their relatives in the team....they are both openers, lately one does not know how to hit the ball and the other does not know how to leave it alone. Lol.:D

Good one bro.....:floor:!!!!!

I always look at some of the teams here in the USA and 3/4 of the list contains Patels.....hmm.....shall the Sylhoti virus catch our team, we shall all have Chowdhurys.....lets be thankful we are still dealing with a few :-p!

*NOTE*: Most of my Bangladeshi friends in NJ/NY are Sylhoti's so please do not take any offense on my post :).

I don't really know about selector, but I think he would be really good as a coach.After all, he was a coach here for my uni (UNSW) in Sydney, and since my uni is pretty rich and good in sports,he must be quite good. I got to talk to him twice.Got his autograph too the 2nd time round:) .(Was too shy to ask the first time.) He is a very gentle and calm kinda fella, and could teach those young cricketers a thing or two about temperement.Maybe he could fix up Aftab if he becomes a selector.:-D Personally I'd recommend the dholai-khal for that Aftab.

hmmm... I am not sure how will he do as a selector along with Akram. From their comments during WC, they arent seemed to be dynamic and afraid to take bold decisions. hope they will prove me wrong. I still think Faruk and Athah did a pretty good job within the limitations and they put us in a right course.
But a big NO NO for BUlbul to be HEAD COACH of the academy right now. I still prefer a foreigner for academy. We need to go with very professional international coach for the academy atleast for another 5/6 years.

I'm not sure how he'll do as a selector. I remember his comments on mushfiqur rahim. Though he did apologise at the end. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

khaich'he ... what's wrong with coaching now ?

anyway for what it's worth, i don't think he or anybody else for that matter, can do any worse than faruikka and ata. raquibul hasan and nannu can be better selectors also IMO.

that being said, what's really needed is a transparent selection structure with reasonable criteria. specialized training, like the type recieved by many of the professional talent scouts around the world, would help too.

This is very alarming!!! If you not happy with Faruq and Athar, you will have nightmares with Bulbul :( I am very worried.

I can live with him being the academy coach but not as selector.

THIS IS MY GUT FEELING!!!

They are brother-in-laws.

Bulbul as a selector is an unknown quantity,you cannot judge one based only on his previous comments,sometimes,chair makes a man.However,every other contester are also untested,so if they choose Bulbul,I'd rather wait for one or two of his selections to rate him.But,he sure was the finest player of his time.Not disrespecting nannu,faruque and Co.,Akram,Bulbul and Ather were just in another league above their time.

I hope you are not a new addict. If the new selectors could outdid Faruq and co we could be in dream land. They made their mistake in selecting (for example JO), but most often their success outdid their failure (Mushy, Tamim).
Bulbul is a good coach, but I do not think he would be a good selector. Thank god he was not there before WC. Other wise Pilot would have been W/K, dollar /sharif would open the bowling . Tamim would have been a nobody

at this moment....i am going for Bulbul as a coach...(not saying he can't be a good selector)..he has proved himself in coaching after Abahani being the champion in dhaka league.....
i have talked with him last week abt recent cricketing issues....seemed like he speaks on behalf of the cricketers...which i liked abt him.....

Bulbul has completed level 3 coaching course from Australia. What's the point of making him idle as a selector. It's better to use his expertise to raise the standard of batting in the age group players.

He should be made coach of one of the Divisional teams or should be incorporated into the Academy as a coaching staff.

Making him selector will be a dumb move and apparently he is not a good judge of talent (based on his recent outbursts in media).

what ??? nobody taught you the basics of civility, or did you just fail to learn them ? maybe you just like flaunting things you're probably better off not flaunting with such nasty vigor ?

look around BC, there are quite a few threads that address selection issues in depth. much can be learned there, including my personal disdain for faruikka and ata - if you're capable of going past cheap personal insults that is.

I would prefer Bulbul more in the roles of coaching, as he has been doing some groundwork for some times, completing his courses etc etc.

But it isnt a surprising news though. After Faruk and Atahar, its only natural that someone in the ranks of Bulbul would come into the picture.

Well... making comments from outside is an easy thing.... but when the same person is put in charge.. I believe the task becomes lot harder. Anyone will think 1000 times before taking any wrong decision having been put into the selectors position.

I have faith on Bulbul and I'm pretty sure that he will take more right decisions than wrong ones.

looks like BCB official denies posibility of Bulbul to be selector.

http://dailyinqilab.com/ (18.6.07 sports section)
also Bulbul himself dont want to be selector rather only want Batching coach position with the national team.

anyway, I think we still need batting coach for national team from outside the country. Bulbul should be considered for age level (not U-19, i want this position with a foreigner also).

I don't know....I am not kind of alarmed by this rumor. Faruk and Co. have done a much better job than previous selectors just as Dav have done a great job, so is Bashar. But as time change, new players come, new idea is needed, new captain comes, new HQ comes... whats wrong with new blood in selection team also?

It doesn't mean... all will work out....new coach may fail.... new captain may fail...but we still welcomed the change... whats wrong with wecoling Bubbul? You never know how it will work out unless you give him some chance.

So if the rumor is true, I will welcome Bulbul with open arm.
