Yeah this is a good news for the same result.

maybe so, but we can't move forward with the likes of bashar, pilot, javed.

javed is done, and looks like haba is as well.

only pilot *deserves* a recall, and even that is short term until mushy steps up.

look what the cheap selector said about bashar in the article. "don't forget sumon's contribution to the bangladesh cricket." why do they have to bring this issue everytime they talk about him? past is past. we have to work on present.

FINALLY!!!
This is a good one! That guy was totally useless in the current squad, and rather a head-ache!
I hope Rajin is added! What we need is more runs! Desperately! And as far as I know Rajin scores fairly well every 2-3 matches. He is pretty consistent compared to Bangladesh standards. Now even if he does not score the first match, I would give him another chance since the selectors played Bashar at his expense for quite some time now, and he needs to warm up against quality opposition. Having said that, I do think that he will play a good knock, possibly in the second innings!
NO HABIBUL BASHAR!! YAYYYYYYYYY!!!:D:D

Great news. I am eager to see who comes in for him, if he does gets dropped.

If its a batsman, who will it be?

Unlike in the past, I don't have much bhorosha with Rajin. Maybe a dour 35 ain't too bad.

Right now I think anyone is better than Habibul Bashar. Remember 35s are better than 2s and 3s. If only Bashar had scored these 35s then probably our score would have been much higher than it was(although not too high and not for long judging by our batsmen's habits)and that would have helped.

you may be right you know because as far im concerned siddons is not willing to change the side at all as a matter of fact he likes to mix the youngers with the experienced! Despite the loss, Siddons was not keen on changing the squad for the second Test. "You've got to give young players time. I think they have the talent to improve, even if it takes eight years. What happens if we bring all the experienced players back in and get the same results? I'm not going to do that." Jamie Siddons.

This really sucks, bad news after all I really doubt they will drop Bashar for the next test.

Which one? Fans predicting HB to make a century or 12 allout?

I have calculated if HB plays in SA away series:
He needs to score 40 runs in six innings to have a career average at 29.49. Possible but hard.
He needs to score 91 runs in six innings to have a career average at 29.99. Impossible. (good thing CricInfo does not round up averages)

I think the motive behind selecting HB in the team is to drag his average below 30. I can't find any other reason. :) What more can he give to BD test team?

Bashar is really doing injustice to his great average. Last year he had 34+ Average and now only 30 point something. After this Test it will be 30 less.

sir,
(not impossible for old Bashar) Allow me shed some light on the real picture. I have memorized most of his stats. At one point Bashar was unstoppable. His reaction and hand-eye co-ordination was better than many greats. At home he had a run of 65, 108, 76 and 61. Ash and co. please read. In two away series back to back (Aus and Pakistan) he scored 520 runs in 10 innings. That is an average of 52. This includes a streach of scores 54, 46, 25, 71, 108, 97, 28, 72. Most recently (at 2006) he had three back to back 50's (69, 73, 76). These are all test innings that I am talking about. His past is full of glorious and memorable innings. Nowadays, dhum dharakka batsmen have miles to go to match any of Bashar's accomplishments.

(Impossible for the current Bashar) Now comes the H Bashar of 2007-08. Will end with this; he is a tab bit slower than the Bashar of past (that all it takes to score single digits). I would not put up his pathetic performance in recent times. But would ask him to retire with dignity. Just so that I can boldly say we a have test batsmen who averaged over 30. (Tamim has 30.8 now. But you never know with these young boys.)

While Bashar, already axed from the one-day side, looks likely to make way for a youngster in the batting line up, Rahim may be persisted with because of the faith of coach Jamie Siddons in his abilities. The Test will be followed by three one-dayers. -- NEwAgeBD

Dont expect too much. There will be at the most 2 changes and if that happens we need a spinner more than a batter to come. Lets not forget that we are playing with 3 bowlers, of which one is not doing great. In Test cricket, you dont play with 3 bowlers.... We didnt know that like our players, our selectors also have to reach that mental state of what it means of Test cricket. I think Razzaque is the person in than Farhad. And if they want to gamble with Mushfiques career,,, then it will be him again. There will be no other changes as it seems like Nafis is okay playing at 3

BTW Rafiq squarely blame BCB for his retirement claiming the present set deprived him test during his peak in 2000 - 2003. So it is no point of carrying on when he would get rough deal every time. so it is better to leave with his head held high

Don't forget his contribution.....3000+ runs in tests......He has a legendary status in Bangladesh Cricekt.

after that i can't have respect for him. Once upon a time i had respect for him but not anymore! He has contributed a lot to our cricket but he has just lost it and should retire ASAP. yes he maybe a legend in bd but to me he aint a lengend. Rafique is the legend

Just heard the news that Bashar got dropped. Hopefully he has played his last international match for Bangladesh.

Bashar dropped from Chittagong Test

Chittagong, Feb 28 (bdnews24.com) - Habibul Bashar has been dropped from Bangladesh's Test squad for the second Test against South Africa because of poor performance.

The team management Thursday announced a 12-member squad with middle order Rajin Saleh coming in for the former Bangladesh captain during the Chittagong Test.

The second and final Test between the Tigers and the Proteas begins Friday at Birshreshtha Shaheed Ruhul Amin Stadium in the port city.

Bashar is being dropped from the Test squad for the first time since Bangladesh gained Test status in 2000.

The top order batsman missed two Test series against visiting New Zealand in 2004 due to a thumb injury. Bashar has played 50 Tests out of Bangladesh's 52 appearances.

Bashar made 11 and two in the Dhaka Test against visiting South Africa that prompted the team management to drop him from the squad.

The former Bangladesh captain has not been in rhythm since his 76-run knock against Australia at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium in April 2006. Since then, he has scored 246 runs in 18 innings of nine Tests with an average of 13.66.

The 35-year-old batsman scored 3026 runs in 50 Tests with an average of 30.87 that also included 24 half-centuries and three hundreds.

Bangladesh's 12-member Chittagong Test squad will be: Tamim Iqbal, Junaed Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Rajin Saleh, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Rafique, Mashrafee Bin Mortaza, Shahadat Hossain and Abdur Razzak.

Thanks to selectors for finally dropping HB.

its a good news indeed...but it would have been much better if haba had some budhdhi and retired after the first test. sad way to end a glorious (ONCE it was!) career.

I feel that they will go with Razzak as an extra bowler and hope that the batsmen score some runs.

I think rajin will get the nod, it would be right to further degrade our fragile batting lineup.

Bashar can't have any complaints about this. If you don't get runs you get dropped. That's the way it goes and he should be aware of this. The fact is as a senior player (due to his fine playing history) he has failed to lead from the front...

Eternal gratitude to Coach Siddons, AKA 'Team Management' ... :applause::applause::applause:

Looks like he humored Tiger Mama and Biriyani Boys for as long as he humanly could.

Looking forward to good stuff from Razzak. If the pitch cracks and turns a bit, he's likely to turn the ball well. His aggression and variety make him potentially a better test or 'wicket-taking' bowler from what we've seen. He's a pretty decent low order bat also BTW. Certainly better than MaMu and Rafiq at this point.

good decision but could have been better if some non performing players admit they are not fit to play...
Mash,Mushfiq, Ash will fail again. I do not know about Tamim,Big Z,Aftab,Sakib probably max 30s score and still we dream to take the test into 4th or 5th day. When these players played 5 consecutive days game, I don't remember. All faults for our organizers, officials for not arranging quality test like cricket where our biriyani boys can stay in the crease and play for five straight days. Ridiculous to expect any quality play in test cricket.

Just a note, anyone, be it Abdur Razzak or Forhad Reza replacing HB will improve the batting lineup. Not to say the bowling and fielding.

Bashar said he is not going to retire before end of this year, i.e. he is not going to give up his Tk 80K monthly salary that he gets as a contracted player. It's fine with me as long our ghada selectors don't try to bring him back.

Check the other thread, it looks like rajin will be playing in place of Haba.

To be honest in tests, I don't think razzak is that much better as a bowler than Shakib ...

Acording to bangladesherkhela Ash said the final 11 will be in the morning and they might pick razzak depending on the pitch...

I thought one looks at morning pitch to decide whether to get a pacer or a spinner.. how do you decide between a spinner or a batter after looking at morning pitch? That too when the decision last for 2.5 days ( 5 days for other test nation)

THANKFULLY the final XI hasn't been decided yet but there are rumors from the BD camp that Ash is more inclined to go with a batsman no matter what.

I don't agree with you at all when comes to Razzak "not being that much better than Shakib in tests". Let's see how it unfolds ... :)

He has reasons for that. Our batsmen are not doing good. SO its always better to go with an extra batsman.

Plus we have 3 part-time bowelrs besides the 3 main bowlers. Sakib, Ash himself and Aftab. Saleh will bowl a few overs as well.

So I don't see why we need Razzak in the playing eleven.

Basically we are playing with two bowlers Shahadat and Rafiq. Mashrafee is basically invisible. Sakib is a part timer. The rest three (Ash, Rajin and Aftab) are just pocket change and after thoughts.

If the first few SA batsman clicks, good luck Bangladesh..... it will be a long long day for our bowlers.

Not taking the 'Myth of Rajin' into account, I think Ash better focus on his top order delivering the goods as a unit in terms of runs, starting with himself. He is positively talismanic and we always have a chance when he sustains a partnership and scores big as the consequence.

Rajin has accomplished a hattrick of :duck:s already and I won't be surprised if goes on to make that a dubious 'double' of 4 in-a-row! He didn't improve technically in the NCL and still plays accross the line and shuffles about uncomfortably inside the crease, making him a perfect LBW candidate. He also does not see the ball early enough, creating all sorts of other possibilities for bowlers like Steyn, Morkel and Kallis. He still can't rotate the strike and the less said about the sheer torture of watching him blocking half-volleys and full-tosses the better! He has always been a scrappy little stop-gap measure with a solid innings or two in the past, and I don't think we'll see him in the national fold for too long. I doubt he'll prove me wrong.

In test cricket you need 20 wickets to compete. Just relying on Rajib and Rafiq alongside the mystifying moods of MaMu won't get us there. Shakib's ODI-style 'containment' bowling won't get us wickets IMHO.

February 28, 2008, 10:21 PM
shakib is a one day allrounder, ash, aftab, rajin etc are all part timers not all rounders there is a difference. An allrounder is somebody like jaque kallis,jacob oram, or ifran pathan

February 28, 2008, 10:21 PM
Both (Sohel hai & Fazal bhai) of you are correct.

Ki je kori...... ki je team amader.. kono solution nai.. ek dhike palla bhari kori to arek dhike kome jai... :confused::confused:

I think it willl be better to replace Sakib with Razzak, then we will have 3.5 bowlers. Mash=1/2

Dhakablues
February 29, 2008, 02:43 AM
Hence the idea of taking test cricket as it is... Considering Mirpur, Ashraful thought that Shahadat will always bowl like that,, he is getting better but he also needs support from other bowlers. If Mashrafee flops, we dont have another bowler who can step in. Test cricket is about taking wickets,, and if we are to play with only 2 effective bowler.. we do have some innings defeat written all over ..

the highlight of this match is STUPID Selectors and Coach

what the hell they think themselves?
they are playing with Razzak, Rafique, Mash, Shahadat, Shakib in a bating paradice and even with Most hablu keeper Mushfik..if habibul is out for performance then why mushfik retained his place..
i really hate these politics with sports..
sometimes i hate myself being bangladeshi born, at least i am mixed blooded
Come on buddy try respect the man you call HaBa oday..he is the key who brought Bangladesh here, he made you dreaming at least..i know he is in bad patch .. but he deserves respect as well as Javed Omar..not these young tamim iqbal..or 1 innigs blazers
sorry i am just exhausted with these BCB..they give job to their relatives..i have seen how Bikash Ranjan Dash played for bangladesh..i have seen that time the power of coaches..
i request you to try to resist these .. players are dolls .. the people in BCB .. whoever it is use them.. so i dont blame them too much..our country players have the most pressure on their mind then any other country else..
