View Full Version : Who are your favourite cricket players? i.e alltime faves (and pleez include a bangladeshi player)

October 17, 2003, 11:03 AM
Ok folks I am really waiting in vain for that darn test match to start. My feeling is others are edgy too. So I thought we could take a brief respite from the gruelling analysis of these practice matches and talk about something near our hearts. Kindly list briefly your favourite players and start with a Bangladeshi player at the top of your list. Limit the players to 3 (4 is the limit ok). This is purely a biased and subjective question. Need not reflect who your 2nd fave team is either. No need to drag in stats too!

My faves are purely based on one word, "style":
-Alok Kapali
-Rahul Dravid
-M Azharuddin

Disclaimer-India definetely is not my 2nd best team.:lol::D

So bear with me, PLEASE!

(note: not in the order of who is my most favorite)

1) Hannan Sarkar - for his handling of bouncers
2) Mehrab Hossain - for his ODI century
3) Mushfiqur Rahman - for his batting at age group level
4) Fahim Muntasir - for his batting at age group level
5) Talha Jubair - for his perfect bowling action
6) Shahriar Hossain - for his top score against Kenya, our best player against Kenya and against any other ICC associate team
7) Mohammad Ashraful - after he took the maiden ODI wicket of Andy Flower
8) Mohammad Rafique - for his batting
9) Khaled Mahmud
10) Minhazul Abedin
11) Shafiuddin Ahmed - yes, the khuni Babu :mad: - for his economy rate in ODIs
12) Morshed Ali Khan - for his economy rate in ODIs
13) Moahammad Sharif - for his economy rate in bowling and straight/horizontal bat in batting
14) Aminul Islam - I like the way he consults with himself after each ball that he plays - he looks at his bat - very carefully after and before playing a ball

The list of my on-the-way-to-favorite players:

1) Arafat Sunny
2) Anwar Hossain Munir

I want to add one more name to my favorites

Minhazul Abedin (Thanks Fahmida!)

Favourite all time batsman - M Waugh (style), Atherton (grit)

Favourite all time bowler - Warne (genius)

Favourite Bangladeshi player - Its got to be Kapali for style. (by that measure, Bashar is my least favourite BD player for complete lack of style)

October 17, 2003, 08:42 PM
Rokon the reckless
Richards the ruthless
Waqar the yorker (or 'er)

I have not seen Kapali yet, but what i read, he might have the talent of Rokon and maturity of Rajin. That will be enough for me.

Oracle bhai why only three ? I feel doing injustice to my other favs.

1. MICHAEL BEVAN - best one-day player i have seen. The four in SCG off the last ball against Harper of West Indies to win the match was one of the most exciting things i have ever seen in cricket.
2. Mark Waugh - laziest 4's u will ever see
3. Ricky Ponting - great things from his first test innings of 96 against pakistan when he was given lbw. World Cup final knock showed off his true abilities.
4. Glenn McGrath - the guy i look upto in fast bowling
5. Shane Warne - always killed the Poms

and of course, Kapali is my fave BD player. I have only seen him during the world cup but it was still evident that he was the most stylish BD player on the team. He had a bad campaign, but he would look solid making even 10 runs. He has real nice footwork and just looks very composed.

hmm...looks like i only listed aussie players as my faves. Well, from other international countries, my fave players are :
1. Imran Khan
2. Shiv Chanderpaul
3. Curtly Ambrose

I remember reading an interview of Kapali's in which he said he really liked Rokon's batting!

October 17, 2003, 10:38 PM
Rokon's cover drive is by far the most stylish shot by a Bangladeshi batsman!
