He's a left arm spinner. We've way too many left armers in the line up. So i don't think hes a good prospect for the future. He will fadeway...


Nasir Hossain and Mahmudul Hasan are the two young prospects for future. Both are Leg Break bowler. Both are good allrounders.

Leg Break googly, we dont have any specialist bowler like that.

But seriously this guy is the same fricken age as me. 16 is way to earliar to make any predictions unless you're brian lara/tendulkar/murali

Thanks for the encouraging prediction for this 16 years old kid whose potential is not explored and who happed to be 16 years old. Ya he can fade... but again who knows he can also turn out to be one the best of his time.

Do we already know enough to predict one way or another? And that is my point.

agree, it's all well and good to say there are too many left arm spinners but that doesn't mean one of them can't excel better than any of the right armers or other left armers. let's just wait and see how he develops a bit more before we count him out.

Okay..

I think i was too harsh..

I should have said "he might" instead of "he will fadeaway"

Spot on yet again Nafi, and we could use a GOOGLY (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/skills/4173812.stm) specialist believe you me. Supposedly HaBa was seen to have bowled a few in the past ... :)

I haven't seen Taposh so I simply cannot comment on how he bowls, but I'd be more than happy to hope for our own Piyush Chawla.

Anyway, I like Saju Datta (http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/236238.html) as a bright prospect, especially for tests. I've seen this fine young SLA play for Chittagong this year, and he looks like he's about 15-16 years old, no joke. I expect him, not Rubel to try and be the new Rafiq once he's ready to make his debut in 5-7 years Inshallah. He has it all: aggression for wickets, intelligent scripting and improvisation, flight and pace variations, accuracy, revs, turn, bounce, the ability to bowl long spells consistently, and a good-looking arm ball. Here are his FC and List A numbers: -

Cricinfo Doesn't have Saju Dattas age. He must be really young, I guess ! Probably just came out of the hill tracts as well !

Moderators can we please correct the typo in the thread title?

It should be Taposh Ghosh, not Tapon Ghosh.

Thanks.

Reminds me of a fighting BD-Cricketer - Taposh Baishya. His lean and frail frame running in to bowl his nippy deliveries used to be a treat to watch. He seemed genuine wicket-taker but leaked too many runs, especially in the latter part of his career. Emergence of a young crop which promised more didn't help his cause either.

He gets my respect though.

Taposh Baishya is finally overcoming his injuries according to some local reports. I won't count him out yet no matter how unlikely a recall seems at this point. I always liked his dhum-dharhakka batting also.

Murad bhai,

Sorry, but I have to disagree with you on that. You see, regardless of what, there should never be a question about "whether it is good to harvest THIS type of talent". My problem is, as long as someone is deemed a talent, s/he should be given proper guidence. Who knows, we might be waiting for one of the biggest surprise for the future.

After all, we're not only concerned about our national team, but also the competitiveness to get into the national team. If we keep our domestic area competitive, trust me...our national team will look completely different.

Remember what Siddons said a few days ago? - "There's not too many talents for me to choose from".

He is not an adibashi. Probably yet another product of the excellent school cricket factory of Rajshahi Division to be fine tuned at BKSP. I'm not sure. Many RajDiv players play for other Divs.

I'm not quite sure whats really happening here.
We've got a bunch of 15-16 year olds.
Too young, too early i say.

They should be busy with thier homeworks and adolescent stupidity.
Its good to have young talents ONLY if we can nurture them properly i guess.

Remember Hasan Raja of pakistan?

Kabir bhai and co.

You guys probably didn't understand what I said.

We have too too much Left Arm Spinners in our domestic cricket. And most of them are getting hard time to get selected for the local teams. We have more left arm slow bolwers than Fast bowlers.

What we need in the competition is Leg Break bowlers or Off Spinners.

We have only few of them. And Players like Nasir & Mahmudul are showing good prospect as Leg break/offspin bowlers.

Besides Taposh is not that good of a Left arm spinner. He got hard time getting in the u-19 team. We have the captain Shuvo, who is also good left arm spinner who can bat really well.

SO based on these facts, I said he might fadeaway. I think more than 50% of our domestic bolwers are left arm spinners.

Our National team now needs some good offspin/leg break bowerls in the line up..

Taposh Baishya was always a good batsman. He bats straight. He is technically sound for a tail ender and has a quality range of shots, when he wants to. He has two test fifties? Am I correct? In any case, the run contribution from that tail of Rafiq,Taposh, Mash gave us a quite a few runs. Don't forget when Mash was out for an extend period of time, he led the bowling attack with heart. I always admired him as a cricketer. He had a nice slow ball too. Its the control that he had problems with. I would never count him out. He has age on his side and hopefully this extended run of injury will finally come to an end.

As far as I khow, Taposh Ghosh is an orthodox SLA bowler. A left-armer bowling GOOGLY will make him a CHINAMAN.

Although he is yet to shine with the bat, i've heard ppl term him as a good batting prospect. Someone of that age may blossom either way. I know one Mark Richardson who played as a SLA even in sr. levels. He even made his debu as a bowler, (as far as i remember). The same guy once topped batsmen's list in ICC ranking and almost gave up bowling in latter years.

For such gifted kids, we should focus on only one thing - give them as much opportunties as possible. We may have hundreds of SLAs, but only the FITTEST WILL SURVIVE.

Saju Dutt might be a good prospet, too. he's been quite consistent over the last couple of seasons. it's because of him, ctg could afford to leave out more established spinners - left-armer Elias Sunny and right-armer Sabbir Khan.


U-19 captain Shuvo is also a very good bat.

another guy is also making rapid progress - Saqlain Sajib.

Nabil Samad is another good SLA...

Arafat Sunny has failed to live upto the expectations. Abahani and Rafique's guidance might provide him a good platform for future

the bottom line is interesting battle awaits Razzak, Rubel, Enamul in coming years

got to agree with u bro! i made this thread to find out other teen prodigies but apart from sachin and to some extent Ashraful no other player has reli managed to stay a regurlar in their side.

but Taposh is gud enuf to make a first class debut unlike others, this Mahmudal Hasan received a very good match report from cricinfo along with Taposh. those are ones they said to look out for.

and as for fading away, well as long as they have right work ethic and attitude then anything possible. some teenagers can act like p****s, me included lol, suresh raina let his fame get to his head, so we will have to see!

This guy and others in his age group need to go to the academies and bowl a really good turning 1st ball which he can use 70% of the time and then develop arm ball, googly, flipper, slider, etc. Good to know that we have more promising prospects.

How awesome!!! He's only 16..wow!! Bless him
but im sure there must be plenty of teenage boys in Bangladesh who look to cricket as some sort of life than looking at education..
reminds me of mushfiq...wasnt mushfiq just 16 when he was selected for the tests in england..??
