Acid test for Bashar as he prepares for three tests. How he can achieve that and bring back his Mr. fifty title?
We all hope he can justify his sayings.

I have high hopes from Bashar in this series ... IMO he should have a 45.00+ average for the test series.

Bashars chance to redeem himself. He hasnt done too well in SL yet though, so Im not overly optimistic...

I hope he does well. If he doesn't, I'll just be sad to see the end of him this way. I have huge respect for this guy, and hope to look at him in the same way after he retires. Having said all this, I know what he does well under pressure.

yeashh...now that he doesn't have the burden on captaincy anymore, i really hope he scores a couple of back-to-back fifties (maybe even a hundred or two) like old times.

he has done well in srilanka before.. he has a couple of 50's.. highest is 84 in test

This is pretty much do or die for him. If he doesn't get his form back in this series it might be difficult for him retain a position in the team. I wish him well.

I just hope we get to see the Bashar of 2003 - the time when he peaked and was ranked World's # 8 Test batsmen of the year in the ICC Cricket Rankings.

When he is fit, he is a treat to watch. My blessings are with him :big_hug:.

Like it or not,A Basher in form will be the Second Best Test Batsman Bangladesh has ever produced,the first one being Ashraful in form.And lately Basher has had all sorts of criticism,maybe due,but with his contribution to the team,he can rightfully expect a more respectful tone in that criticism.I,for one would like to see him retain the form that made him our torch bearer in international cricket and continue in tests for at least three more years,we need youthful exuberance in ODI's and 20-20's but we need Experience from Bashar in Tests.

Wish him a good luck,may Allah grant his prayer.

BangladeshFan
June 17, 2007, 06:25 AM
i dont think there is a direct relation between a captain's form and captaincy. When someone bats/bowls in the middle, he is purely a batsman/bowler, why should captaincy effect that? besides everyone has an opinion of who to bowl next or who to send next in batting order. the captain only expressed it out and his decision is final.

i think bashar is trying to find a lame excuse just like many others. his batting form is well and truly gone. but for bangladesh's sake , i hope he shines and atleast get some runs(an av. of 25 will be enough) with the bat.

If he was pressured because of his captaincy he would rather try to play sensibly.what he did we all know. he is just not capable of playing cricket anymore. he will play first 2 tests and will be dropped from the last one. i really hope he plays good but he won't be able to because pull and hook won't take him anywhere.cheers BD

June 20, 2007, 08:13 AM
Cool down guys. In the longer version of the game Bashar has always been a good player. However, he was never a good captain in any form of the game and was even having harder time as a captain because of pressure. So, now that he is free of it, we will see a better Bashar in longer version of the game. And if you see the teams i posted, I always included him in my test team. ODI is, however a completely different story for him. He never was good there, and he should not be there.

SS
June 20, 2007, 08:35 AM
Agree with Rubu.
He does good comparing to other batsmen in tests. Captancy put pressure on him but as he is not a captain now he should perform.

Tigers_eye
June 20, 2007, 09:15 AM
This is a practice match. If this brings his confidence back so be it. However, I still have reservation on his form when it counts.

He did score 20 (NZ) and 57* (Scotland) in the WC warmup matches and ended up averaging 13.1 for the tour (when it mattered).

For the sake of the team, I hope he don't repeat the WC performance.

Agree. Our young batsmen lack the ability to play longer version of the game. Even someone will try to stick around, a fall of wicket especially in regular intervals could also destrcut the attention of the set performing batsman.

I wish they chose tusher instead of sakib. Sakib is not ready for test yet. We need more batsmen with age 28+ in test. We r not letting ready players play and trying to get more players ready... doesn't make any sense...

We sometimes need to understand, these cricket players risk their careers, lifely earnings, and many other earthly things to become cricketers and serve the country. We really need to have some patience and respect for these guys. They are not Racing Horses or Gladiators.

Thanks for all those who remained patient with Bashar and all other struggling cricketers.

Hey srabbee,

Welcome to BC. We bash players because we love them. We don't bash them because we hate them. HaBa is an abbreviated form of Habibul Bashar!
As for Hablu, look at his smile, refreshing and innocent and a little hablu-like :-p.

And as far as the matter of respect goes, I urge you to take a closer look at other forums where bashing of a "yesterday-favorite now not" player is a common thing. I guess you can label it a sub-continental characteristic. But please don't say things like that again. We are fans, and some of us are bigger fans than one can ever be. So hearing what you said about bashing and respect really burns.

As I said, we care and so we bash. The bashing is to douse the fire of pain that is lit by a good players bad form. It should not be taken seriously and I urge you thoroughly to get used to it. While I do confess Bashar has been bashed a little too much, but I'm sure it will go away pretty soon (take a look at his 60 not out on the first day of the practice match against Sri Lanka A, the bashers are even happy for him :)).

No one here hates him so maliciously enough I'm sure. Even us Bashar-Bashers are hoping he gets back in form soon :up:!!!!!

Enjoy your stay at BC :).

Sincerely,
Trig

Bashar, prove your bashers wrong.
Return to your splendid form.
Make a double century in every test.
And make it your norm.

I do believe that Bashar has the talent to get a double century, but I don't think he has the stamina for that. Either way, he has my best wishes.

Congratulation to HB for wise and precisous innings against the A team. On a different note lack of concentration is again a big problem for him as well the rest of the team. It is a common feature in test cricket that the psychologically sounder team while fielding tries to cut in generally at the beginning of every session and BD batsmen are slowly getting better to concentrate more after a drinks or lunch break or resumption of next day's play.

I'll withhold my adulations until after a solid test performance. Notice I don't call him "HaBa" after the 63 anymore ... :D

typical bangalees...give me a break. he just scored some runs, yes against a weaker attack but he still did, and then yesterday he got out to a bad decision. so lets wait till the series is over and then talk abt him not just from 1 innings.

Bashar was the victim of new Ashoka De Silva, Gupta. I can't blame him for not scoring a ton yesterday.

"I enjoyed bowling, but not the day. In the beginning of my career I started as an all-rounder because I bowled regularly in domestic circuit. And after a long break, I bowled a few overs (8) today but the overall feeling is not good. It's really frustrating that number seven and eight batsmen scored hundreds," said Bashar, whose 29.1 overs in one-day internationals has brought him just one scalp, none other than West Indies great Brian Lara in 1999.

At least we can thank him for enjoying the bowling.

This guy is confused on what to do. play his natural game or change it.. purai habla.. he's even confused how to play the yorker balls..

BD Tigers
July 7, 2007, 04:35 PM
it was a yorker length ball, not a full yorker length, anywho, he tried to play it in mid wicket instead of playing straight or mid on. that was his downfall.

only if the top order score some runs, he cud play his natural game and not have to worry abt playing defensive. He always scored w/ his own game and he shud not change it.

Ji bhai. this series he came as 2nd down in 1st test and 3rd down in 2nd. And both times our innings were in shambles in both innings of both tests except once. So he obviously cudn't play his natural game. I am not saying that its other batsmen fault for his downfall but its not helping either.

Thanks to Nocturnal for answering the q.

He should bat later down in the order for the 3rd test , 1st innings..try everything to get his form back! We need Bashing Bashar.
