Guys, it is now imperative what Bangladesh Cricket Board have in mind about our long served ex captain, I, on behalf of hundreds of BanglaCricket members, do hereby solemnly declair a forced retirement for Habibul Bashar and request everyone to express their gratitude towards this great ambassador of Bangladesh cricket in this thread:

Thank you, Habibul Bashar. You have long been a true servant of our cricket and we are always greatful to you on the eve of your retirement.

just retire him from international cricket, he's still useful in the locker room for his experience/advice so i don't have a problem with him still playing NCL cricket, though maybe a coaching role might be a bettter option....

thanks habibul for retirement decision. I am reading his mind At the moment.
thanks for giving opportunity to our so called young promising players. But thanks for your previous success.

After watching him come on and get out cheaply, was very disappointing. It seems that his passion for the game is gone. I agree, its time for him to retire.

At this rate if we keep giving him chances to make his 3000; 2008 will be over but he won't be near his 3000.

Good bye HB.

"Easy on the eyes" and a "proven player of the short and viscious stuff", HaBa is as HaBa does. Looking forward to him clobbering Steyn, N'tini and Nel before forcing Lee, Tait and Clark into early retirement.

January 11, 2008, 10:11 PM
another solution, at the end of the game, all the players should raise their hand or raise their bat and make a gate for habibul bashar. So he will know, its his farewell today.

all the people in the stadium should stand up and have poster (habibul we will miss u), so he will realize, its time to retire.

3rd: ashraful should speak out loud at the end of the game, we will miss sumon bhai and thanks for his contribution in BD cricket and declared for bashar that he is retiring today.

BTW, whats wrong with BD, pak and India player: they never wanna retire, u have to force them to retire

India: kapil dev (biggest example), future list: tendulkar, dravid, laxman, ganguly
pakistan: injamam, wasim akram, selim malik, waqar, rashid latif, amir sohel
Bangladesh: habibul bashar, khaled mahmud, akram khan, aminul islam bulbul

Here's a "mega-thread" idea. Let's put all these HaBa basing threads together and e-mail the link to "Bagh mama". He should announce HaBa's place for the SA and Aus series NOW ... :)

He just needs some time to sort his game out, that's all. Let him go back to the nets, let him go back and play domestic cricket for a while. I don't like writing anyone off completely. If he needs some time off, then so be it. Who knows what good might come out of it.

He's 36 plus without any impressive performances in the NCL this season. The less said about his recent International performances, the better.

I think with his all too familiar compulsions and lost-puppy playing across the line after all these years, it may actually be the time to bid that fairwell. What do they say about teaching old dogs new tricks? ... :)

well there are all different types of coaching roles. he doesn't have to be a technical coach, just someone who can give good advice in regards to international cricket and the environment etc. surely after all his years of playing international cricket he has some worthwhile advice for the youngsters...if not then there's really no need for him.

Its no wonder our poor performance in recent tests remind us that how much we were dependent on basher in test cricket. There was a time when a 50 or two from habibul basher was very common in test cricket.

Now he is badly out of form and his average dropped to 31.77 and is likely to be dropped after this tour we badly need someone who will do the bulk of scoring for us..:doh:

Beamer
January 12, 2008, 02:36 AM
It's beyond Thanksgiving! Get out and get lost. If he bowed out when he should have after WC, I would have dropped a "Thank you" note as well. I fault the selectors here. They are doing a disservice to the nation by continuing to pick a lame horse who has lost his leg two years ago. This horse is lame, blind and old. Those of you who keep wishing that he will regain his form is in for a big surprise. 7 tests, 14 innings now and a whole lot of ODI's since he has done anything to at least say that he might come back to his old days. He is not going to produce, again, ever.

Not only I want Habibul bashar in the team but also as a specialist captain. His job would be to successfully win the toss, and before the game starts, substitute with the 12th man and make notes for JS (coach). Sometimes carry JS's laptop. This specialist role would be a new thing in test arena. No team has thought of yet. This should continue till Ash learns how to win tosses. Two more series should be fine. BCB don't have to pay him extra for this. They have already contracted him for the next 11 months (A grade level).

this last post of yours has earned you a lot of praise in my eyes. you've got guts.

bashar has nothing. nothing left. if it was possible to have less than what he has, he would have it.

NCL he did nothing, and international level he did nothing. over the last several innings. his last 50 in any form of international cricket was at fatullah. heck, even masri has scored 2 test 50s in a lesser span.

bashar is done. and i am torn no more.

well sakib lit up the NCL, and guys like ash and aftab have notoriously poor performances. yet guess who are the few guys to get 50s on this tour: tamim, junaid, ash, and aftab?

NCL does not mean much in terms of who will be successful at int'l level.

however, NCL is important to groom the players into the 5 day mindset, and an important area for up-and-coming players to hone their skills against the cream of BD's crop. it is also important to identify the gamebreaking players (like ash, mash, aftab, tamim, rajib), irrespective of their NCL performance and fast track them to Siddons or the HP unit.

i suppose thats one to look at it...

but he also gave us many years of stupid dismissals, idiotic hook shots, ridiculous run outs, and brain dead captaincy. he's lucky we actually call his contribution "service"

*** yes, he was good for those first 2800 runs, but after that and in light of our second innings *batting* for lack of a better word, i am quite incensed.

i dont see any reason why HB is not going to play next series. our other master blaster batsmen are soooo gooooood that we can finish the test in almost 2 days. Most probably we are going to see some old faces in the next series after this humiliation.

Anyway, Congrats HB for getting 3000 runs. Next batsmen will get those runs in YEAR 2020 by Ashraful (avg 13.29) :D

I think that he will be included in the next series just so he can get an proper ovation from the fans and get a happy send off. I think that if he makes a 50 in this match, that he should be included in the SA series.

He's done a lot as a player for Bangladesh cricket and he should retire in his country, hopefully on a high.
