Hope you are right and that he doesn't do an Ashraful!!!

Just give ashraful more time then u will get the right form.Remember he is now just under 20.

So wait for future Ashraful.

Let's not jump the gun - one century doesn't prove anything - he needs to perform consistently.

Does anyone remember who scored the first first-class century for Bangladesh ? It was Rokon.

Well, lets not put down the guy. Nafis is not on same boat as Rokon. Rokon sucked all the time. His first class century was ages ago and one time wonder. Never repeated again.

Nafis is now playing for quite some time. His first class average looks good. I hope he continues this...

Nafis is a good prospect. We know about him for a while now. Also, cricket is in his blood.

The question is, do we rush him into national team now, or do we wait and let him mature into being consistent?

In the first match he sucked, in the second match, he scored a century. If this is how he will perform, may be it is better to take it slow, let him go to Pakistan, then play U-19 WC in February. Lets see how much he improves.

You're right - I'm not saying he's doesn't have potential. He definitely has performed on more than one occasion. Just don't want another one hit wonder.

BTW, when 'Nasif' is 'Nasif''s biggest supporter on the board, that's pretty suspicious - you're last name isn't Iqbal, is it ;)

October 16, 2003, 09:41 AM
I am Nasif and he is Nafis :D

And, no my last name isn't Iqbal, its Akand :)

I have a feeling that most of you who are passing judgement on Ashraful, Rokon and Nafis haven't seen any of them play!

October 16, 2003, 11:25 AM
I have seen Ash and Rokon play, but haven't seen Nafis. Hope to see him soon :)

October 16, 2003, 02:22 PM
Now I'm totally convinced that you're Nafis Iqbal. After all, what better disguise than to transpose letters of your first name

sneeeeaky, ve-ee-ry sneeaky :lol:

Can he sneak into the national side though ? Too bad uncle Akram isn't in the selection committee.
