View Full Version : The CAT have nine lives

Past one year:

life 1) off form. Doesn't matter. He is our most successful captain, he needs to be in the WC team. Whom are you going appoint captain? No we need him.
Then he performs zero. Pathetic captaincy. lost matches after matches. I am certain the fans are really happy!!

life 2) 'He will retire with dignity'. Indian series at home and selectors offer him a way out. Nothing doing. Some cry "whaat, he has 30+ average best we got." They fail to understand that past performance does not help at present.
Then he performs zero. Pathetic captaincy. I am certain the fans are still really happy!!

life 3) Well, no retirement for sure, dada asked him to continue if his heart says so. SL tour. Plays as specialist batsman. khek!! khek!! Specialist performance he gave. Poeple declare 'yes, we will only include him in NZ squad only if he performs well in the domestic cricket.
Then he performs zero. I am certain the fans are still really happy!! North, South, East and West, Bashar is the best. (look at his past record!!)

life 4) one fifty on a dead game in a local match, habitually getting out in the 30s against the weakest bowlings. Yeah!! he is performing. Back in form. Dang!!
To me he performed zero. To other certain fans, they are happy with his performance (Optomitrist would make lot of money from BC and BCB members. Shob kana'r dol).

life 5) crucial round before the selection he manages to get a ding and doesn't play. May will get exposed in front of the new coach? Cunning very cunning.

life 6) He is only 47 runs from 3k runs. certainly you wouldn't stand in a way from that record. First and only BD player would be achieving that. He needs to be in the NZ squad, even if this compromizes the team.
Then he performs zero. Pathetic batting. I am certain the fans are still really happy!!
Congrats for the mile stone achievement. Can we call for a retirement now?

life 7) One year contract extention, lol. Which means he will in the team minimum for the next one year barring injury. No retirement in sight. Woohoo, says the fan club members (give him a retirement package if you want to give him financial solvency, and let others who deserve fill his slot for crying out loud).

life 8) SA is visiting us. Selectors declare those who perform in BCB practice matches would get seleted. Manages to bang just enough to keep him away from the practice match and be fit (lol) before the real test.

life 9) Well this will be his 50th test-match, so we must include him. He would be the only player with 50 test match. We will present him with a crest. What a wonderful moment in Bangladesh Cricket History.
The only thing I will remember is we continually get our rear kicked because of fielding 10 players or less.

I ask the fans, what other excuse you will come up with in test #2 at chittagong to include him in the test sqaud?

His "high"ness (biri fukey high hoisay) will not retire you know that. He thinks he has few years left in him. I am contemplating to reward the person who would come up with the best excuse for HB to be in BD test 11.

Well this the by product of letting non performers stay in the team for too long.... no accountability .... no responsibility.... talent doesn't need to translate into production....one good performance can buy you one year's worth of 'jail-free' pass.... this is the culture we have developed.... its us who sponsored and supported this culture are to be blamed... not the players.....

one day its a story about chacha next its Pilot, another day its Alok, the next time its Gullu or Bashar, or even Asharaful or Rafiq... next who ? who knows... it can be anybody... the actors change but act is repeated again and again....

in the past we have given GOLA DHAKKA to NANU, BULBUL, AKRAM and still we don't have any player at their caliber yet. So yes we need to get him out from the team buts its shame that no one else could put their hands up and say i deserve his place. That's the sad stroy of BD cricket. We kick out the players but who ever gets their place can't say they deserved it...

I don't know what is wrong with Habibul Bashar. He's losing everything day by day. I just don't get it how he doesn't understand that?

His profile says he's 34 but in real he could be 38. So hes getting old.

spot on...bashar is our cricket version of sheikh mujib. a man who is responsible for where we are, without whom we'd be totally lost. but at the same time a man who by the time he reached his end, was universally despised due to certain character flaws.

as much as i hate bashar now, the bashar of old will always be dear to my heart.

It's time to hand him the axe for a while and push Mushfiq up the order. With Bashar in the team, we're playing two men down - one because of his lack of form and the other because of having to play Mushfiq at #8.

I hope that they drop him for the second Test, He had a chance in NZ, did not perform well, here he has been given another chance and failed once again, another country would have never tolerated this, regardless, even Ponting who is out of form has been advised by the selectors to take a rest.
I have a feeling though that he will be dropped for the second test, and he will never play in another ODI. He should now retire with dignity. This has happened toall great and good players, to know when to make a graceful exit.

well, i agree that bashar should go as well...but didnt like the way u wrote about him... he was, once, the ONLY batsman in our team. im sure u have clapped at least once watching his performance during the last 5/6 years. u should not be so disrespectful to a man who has given our cricket so much.
but yes, he should respectfully go and wish the younger team goodluck

I blame the selectors because if they don't select him then he will retire anyway..also we can not force people to retire. Bashar has the right to retire when ever he wants but our selectors will have to stop selecting him into the team.

The cat is dead, finally its assured. No cat lover wont be able to stop Siddons to shoot it dead this time I guess.

Ash should call for his head, Bashar is the most weak link in batting line up, putting pressure on following batsman IMO.

Hmm ... it is a sad day for me as i concede that time has come for Habibula Bashar to step down (or announce his retirement).

Given my considerable clout with BD Cricket administrators, i want to assure all of you guys that he is not playing the next game. I gave him enough opportunities.

So long, the warrior and hero of the past but a fallen star of today.

i can't stand on this any more. he should retire. someone should go to Stadium with Banner saying , " Bashar Bhai, we are grateful what you have done in the past, but please don't play anymore because you don't kn ow how to play anymore". I will donate money for the banner if someone from dhaka willing to do that. because of bashar we are always under pressure, these selectors don't understand that.come on he is one down batsman, and the shot he plays like he is playing in the street corner.

reyme
February 23, 2008, 10:55 AM
#12: He still has a shot at captaincy as Ash is too immature....
#13: Just 74 runs away from 3100. He likes the lucky number 13. Also scored 13 in 2 innings. Before T1 his total was 3013 and now it is 3026. His avg is also 31
#14: one year A+ contracts with BCB, he draws $80,000 (Bangladeshi dollar) per month, so he must play.
#15: He is the only senior player left in the team from golden era
#16: Only test debutant left in the team
#17: Just 1 half century away to reah a total 50's of 25. So we can atleast call hom Mr. Quarter (Fifty)
#18: Only BD player who can smile all the time, thanks everybody and can also sing and dance (plus play cricket)
#19 Need to retire in a foreign country first prefereably in Lords since there is a huge bengali fan base in london and he is a cricket legend
#20: Only BD player to achieve 3000 runs and 3 wickets in test. Needs 3 more wickets.

BagherBacha
February 23, 2008, 10:59 AM

February 23, 2008, 11:04 AM
Bashar you are becoming joker day by day, you are so clueless in the pitch, whether you are bating or fielding.Bashar do you know we fan close our eyes when ball goes toward you during fielding. we close our eyes to avoid humiliation not because we are worrried you will let the batsman make 2 runs where there no run at all. so please amader ke khoma kore den bhai, boro bhai

how can we send e-mail to BCB? i can't get into this stupid tigercricket.com . tiger cricket used to be my home page LOL can't believe myself i did that, now Banglacricket is my homepage

I don't care if he retires or not. He can damn well go back to domestic cricket and try to find some form if he still thinks he's got it in him. However, for now, I don't want him to hog Mushfiq's position in the order.

1) I am no saint. Sorry to dissappoint you.

2) Respect is earned. He earned his respect when he was worth something to the team. He is losing all that by the hour. The more he and the selectors make a fool out of themselves the less respect they will have.

3) Excuse is something he started to bring forth to the media from the WC. If you want I can start quoting beside all my 9 points. In case if you have missed, just as an example, here it goes:
After returning from the NZ tour he told media he was "unlucky". May be I was watching different tests. Each innings he played (all four), I thought he was the most luckiest person to even to survive that long. Remember his lucky sixes over slip cordon? Cricinfo, cricbuzz all has the information saved.

Trying to anticipate what excuses he and the selectors would come up is nothing wrong. Little bit joking should light up the atmosphere.

Good ones Reyme and Sohel bhai. :floor:

February 24, 2008, 06:46 AM
His current test average in 99 innings: 30.57. Now that's quite a steady drop from the 40 something of once-upon-a time. But we cannot possibly deny him his 100th test innings and by default, his 101st, can we?! Let's see if he can drag that average below 30 after all.

He should be kicked out and spend his retirement doing something better even though he is a contracted player. The Cricket board will pay him a salary anyhow for doing nothing, whether he is playing cricket or not.
In another country, he will be sidelined a long time ago, and not make a comeback unless he performed very well in domestic matches.
I dont think one can blame Siddons, he has to confirm to the selection committee, but he can make a stance for the second test match.
Bashar should have never been selected for NZ tour in the first place, then after his first class performance, given a spot in this Test team. Are the selectors dumb, deaf and blind? Reza would have performed better with his batting, bowling and fielding.

HB can't bat.
HB can't field.
HB can't bowl.

Therefore, anyone who can do any one thing better can replace him.
Be it Abdur Razzak and Forhad Reza, (better in all three categories) or even Rajin Saleh (countless times better fielder) or Rasel (extra bowler).

1st down or 2nd down is main stay of any team. We are losing the grip of these matches because of HB hogging that spot.

Time is ticking for the selectors. Rafiq, Akram who is the third guy in the selection committee?

I mean I will give all those wonderful services (actaully you will get 3 in 1) to BD Cricket. And before all you fans get mad at me I will retire voluntarily.

Thats very bad, Fazal Bhai. You just kill my desire prematurely which could otherwise have been a very promising career.

And for Tiger_eye bhai, we must retain Habibul in the CTG Test and get rid of Mushfique and Mashrafee, and that will give you a 3 act in one, which will open the door for other two players. Atleast in that way we will play 10 against 11 (or should it be 12 including Bucknor), playing on almost even term ki bolen?

Too late for this, I am sure that they have already selected the team, and based on what Siddons has said, useless Bashar stays, so BD is already one player short at start of play.
