well after looking at peoples responces a lot of us are very angry because of the performance of bangladesh the bowlers i think have done exteremely very well for us especially shahadat and rafique but the batting was the main concern for us which has made us lose the first test for sure but who should we put the finger on and blame them for the dismal performance, mainly looking at the batting side i think. so lets discuss who should go and why :waiting:

definitely Haba should retire urgently of his own, otherwise he will be most disrespected player for the rest of bd history. Poeple will hate him, I think some people already do that. He should be axed from the team right now.

In second test Rajin or someone else should be placed instead of Haba, no question about that.
mashrafees problem was that he seems bit tired and fragile and unfit, something is going wrong with him, his body language exposed that very clearly.

i PICK Habibul Bashar and Mortaza - very dissapointed with these players not showing thier best of talents, but we all know they will still make it to the team somehow????????

Asking to drop Mashrafee is unrealistic. So that's out of question.

And when you're talking about dropping Bashar, you're pretty much avoiding the concerns we have about Tamim and Ashraful. Tamim's no saint, and he doesn't deserve a spot right now. He's out of touch. Ashraful will get the spot, simply because he's the captain.

I would keep Tamim for the second test, Chittagong is his hometown and I think he will provide some fireworks there..umI'd drop Shahriar only coz I think we need an extra bowler(Rajjak or Sajedul)..nothin to do with his performance

Ideally, I'd field Farhad for HaBa, Rasel for MaMu and Enam for Moyna given the choices. You need 20 wickets to win a test match and I think the new guys can help that cause more than the guys they're replacing.

I don't want to deprive HaBa of his 100th and 101st test innings and watch him drag that average below 30 - now 30.56 from 40 something once upon a time - but fielding XI players for once is important. For the future, I feel it's important to see how guys with better footwork and more compact technique do in his place. Imrul and Rokibul pop to mind. MaMu needs a rest.

Now Moyna is one of my favorite players, but I feel he, like a certain Alok Kapali, need continued success in domestic FC, and EXTENSIVE A-team experience before making any kind of serious impact at this highest level of Test cricket with both bat and ball. Moyna, the test cricketer, must re-appear as a 'wicket-taking', not just ODI-style 'containment' bowler when he comes back. GoBoy and most other youngsters and youngish vets with diminishing performance at the highest level could use the same sort of process and make a sustainable comeback in their mid to late 20s or early 30s. Think Misbah, think Hayden ... :)

Batting-wise, we'll continue to depend on Tamim who had a terrible 1st test, BiZu and Ash to score the runs. Abir will continue to look good before falling in the 30s max, and Aftab will continue to out-Rajin Rajin before losing his composure. GoBoy will probably continue his bad patch with the bat also, but until the TALL but less cute Dhiman is given a look, we're stuck with him. I don't think Pilot, still the best Bangladeshi keeper, will do any better with the bat.

Test cricket is hardly the place for U19 heroes and monnow-bashers to sustain success before their late 20s or early 30s IMHO.

Bashar will be selected no matter what..so I think Bashar should come in as late as possibel(6 or 7)...he is getting old and I think his eyesight is going bad so he's struggling against fast bowlers using the new ball and at least comes late he'll play the spinners

that is a very good selection of players chosen for replacement exactly what i thought of! do the players bribe the selectors to be in the team? by the way Pilot is retired, and who is Ghosh - i forgot?

Mash should have been dropped for a while, let him improve in Academy team or in our domestic legue, and then come back to the national team.

The trend that our team has is the established players can stay in their 'shashur bari' at their will, and the selection committee will not touch them, will not warn them. That is absolutely outrageous. This is not a professional game.

Bashar, Sakib and Mash should be out with Bashar dropped permanently.
Sakib is not Test material as yet, he is a good ODI player, and Mash should be rested and brought in for the ODIs.
Bashar is just occupying a chair as a privileged spectator.
I think Siddons and the selectors have to really put their heads together now.
Dropping Mushy is not the right thing now, unless they take a chance with Mashud only for the test. It is not easy to train another wicketkeeper now. Mushy has been playing with this team for 1 year now and he knows the way the bowler bowls, so it is difficult to get someone else to do that now. After this series and the Ireland series, Siddons can look at Dhiman Ghosh.

Enamul for Bashar....and

Shakib should get one more chance with the bat. He is not a Test bowler as yet and should play only as a batter. Never mind what Siddons think.
Farhad should be seriously considered from next Series on.

I see, he is a wk, a bowler and a batsman, and more matured than Mushy.
Our selector should have given him at least one chance, and why not.
BCB should change the selection process, instead of one person, we should have a selection committee of 3 or 5 persons with one arbitrator.

I was going to vote then could not find enough choice.
Try Sajidul in CTG, he cannot do worse compared to MASH.

Do not play Rasel, he is not test material.

Let Mushfik go back to para cricket, train himself for a year or so. Then we will see is it imitated or real gold. Pilot, Ayub or Dhiman will do.

And as we always say, Bashar should receive respectful farewell. Rajin comes to mind but Farhad would be preferable.

Dropping Shakib not a solution, he can shine any day.

IF anyone deserve to be dropped, it should be Mushy first. Then Habibul Bashar.

Now tell me what so special about this boy? His smile? His nonsense talkings behind the stumps? His cute loook?? What else?? I find nothing.

I just don't get why he is in the team. He replaced Pilot who wasn't among the runs. But what this duck boy doing? How many good innings he played? He should have got more good innings if he's that special like most of the people think. Pilot also played at 7/8. He had some good innings too. And we all know he's not a good batsman and thats why got dropped.

This guy is out of from since he started his career. Yes he had some good innings in ODIs in the beginning.

I don't blame him though. I blame the coward selectors. Ekta good innings khellei mone kore eta onek valo... Ar shei jotoi kharap koruk tobu o shei dole thakbe.. faltu selectors koto gula.. baghmama...my foot. edurer chana ekta...

*****************

And Habibul. We all know why he's in the team. Its again the fault of the edurchanas(selectors). They don't care about the present. They care about the past.

Its stunning how golden boy still in the team. he IS the worst performer in the team, yet the selectors forget about Pilot.

Fazal is right, drop the selectors and anyone else who wants to promote Mushfiq at #3

Please drop Mushy and bring in Dhiman. Give rest to Mash and bring in Sajid. Drop Bashar and bring in Rajin.

3 changes is unrealistic. And dropping Mash isn't going to solve the problem.

Dropping rarely is the solution. That's something many of you don't understand. Rather, we should "drop the idea of dropping players" for some time. Let them play and focus. We rarely understand that we're still a developing team. Sigh.

True. But brother you cannot let someone (Bashar) play for 1 long year without any kind of performance. This is unfair. Isn't it?

Mash needs to be rested IMO. He seems to be physically and mentally tired.

The person you drop is the player who is the non-performer. Run the stats/recent performances by your 99 cent calculator and sort the name of the player... who do you think is top of the list? Exactly,, so drop him for a better substitute. No need to include the entire squad for the candidate and leave out the actual non-performers.

So you don't think we should drop players, you think if you keep playing bashar and rahim etc they will one day score 50, 70 runs maybe 100? rubbish. some are just crap and just like you cant teach a dog to talk you cant teach people to play world standard cricket, talent needs to exist. Mashud, saleh and rasel are much better option than bashar rahim and tamim.

Gowza

bashar for nazimuddin or ehsanul or at a stretch raqibul (raqibul probably needs more time before he's in the test team)
rahim for dhiman
mortaza for rasel (assuming they only play 2 pacers, if they play 3 mortaza can probably stay)
tamim for gazi salahuddin (this one isn't essential and really should only take place if tamim isn't fully fit yet)

Rifat
February 24, 2008, 03:34 PM
Bashar, Rahim should be given ONE LAST CHANCE... that's it, no more! the test shall be his last chance... if he fails to score consecutive fifties, bring in PILOT and mithun ALI/Dhiman Ghosh or myself from the UNITED STATES;)

Bashar has failed consistently, something we are consistent about to the least... he should be just dumped, no more respect, since he was given endless chances to regain his form(even let's say he blasted couple of centuries in Sri Lanka +New Zealand tour combined, he probably would have been considered for the ODI team) and he wasted them. SHAME ON BASHAR, someone who gets paid by the republic of Bangladesh and fails to produce anything at all is indeed a BIG LOSER, regardless of his past, i am sure if ricky ponting of Australlia went without fifties for 12 matches in a row, will definitely be dropped despite being a legend and all. same with TEndulkar, why do we keep showing mercy to Bashar? are we under the impression that we will never improve? is he our only man to glue the team together? just drop him, NO QUESTIONS ASKED...

i thought Rajin Saleh is a good cricketer...

if someone gets selected, doesn't mean you have to show up, if he retires now, got 3000 runs, we will still respect him for what he has done... there is no point for him to waste opportunities for another player who is itching for a national squad spot, we will always respect him for what he has brought to this team in the past, no question on that, but there is no point on playing if you can't really play anymore especially WHEN IT IS AT THE INTERNATIONAL LEVEL

before sacking the players we need to sack the selectors. from the very beginning they gave a wrong bunch to slect from- HB, Mushfiq, Rajjak, Shajedul, Rajin. This is compounded by choosing HB over Rajjak. you can not win a match with 3 bowlers unless those 3 are Mcgrath, Warne and Lee.
