Why I am not surprised. It was long due. Now is the time for him to think about his future as he has done nothing to prove our useless selectors that they are wrong. I would say time for him to go and give the others a chance.

Bashar should have taken the opportunity in Dhaka and announce his retirement.

This is such a good news after a very very very long time... mishti bitoron kora uchit. Now we have Rajin Saleh instead. HaBa scored 13 runs in the first test, I am sure Rajin will score 15 and give us 2 more extra vital runs... can't wait.

February 28, 2008, 12:47 PM
i think anything rajin bring is a plus. he might even score 50 very useful runs which bashar won't. and is fielding is a well known quantity. interestingly fielding as been the only thing bashar has improved in over the recent past. but still nowhere rajin's calibre.

i hope rajin can do something with the bat. a big score from him is necessary.

we will miss your 50's but it was coming and if your read the BDkhela report it says he took it comely from ASH and and ash had very difficulties to tel the most exp player in the team in front of whom he himself grew that he is not getting picked. And he also said to his friends (HaBa) that he knew this was coming. if you can't score for 16 test this is bound to happen...

Are you serious? Isn't it up to the chief selector to do that? Pathetic if true. He deserves that much respect regardless of recent form or lack of runs. Longest tenured former captain as well.

The decision to drop him was long overdue. Actually, he should have been dropped right after the India series. He earned the right to play vs India. His lack of form was based on ODI's, which was the only version that he played after the Australia series. Taking him to SL, or at least not getting dropped midway through that series was wrong. Bigger mistake was to take him to NZ and continue in the 1st test vs SA. Well, at least, he can't never say that they didn't give him a chance to regain his form. This was inevitable.

I wish him luck and thank him for his monumental contribution to BD cricket. This is not a time to rejoice though he made it very difficult for everybody.

agree with you 100%. I mean ok he need to be dropped but that shouldn't be a cause for calibration like some are doing here... its really disgusting and shows your(not you beamer B) true color...

As I have said in other threads, I would have preferred Abdur Razzak or Enam for HB. Both would score 13+ in two innings and would give extra edge to BD in bowling.

Chief selector is a p*ssy. The selectors have no dignity. They are forcing Ash to do the dirty job. Did you ever here Ganguly, Kumble, Dhoni, Malik, Inzi, Jayawardene, even Attapatu breaking the news to their senior players that they are not selected? Or is it the selectors still want him and the coach doesn't so let the captain give him the message.

Now here one can ask for "Respect". HB would still milk that 80k per month salary for the next 9 months and not retire.

Bashar is not retiring soon...


Bashar rules out int'l exit
Sports Reporter from Chittagong

It seems that Bangladesh cricket is all set to enter a new era after the departure of some senior cricketers. Mohammad Rafique has already announced his international retirement, while Khaled Mashud's career is all but finished and the omission of Habibul Bashar from the second Test against South Africa simply enhanced the notion.

But former national skipper Bashar said that he is still far from bidding international cricket bye despite his exclusion due to poor form. The most successful Test batsmen in the country with three hundred and 24 half-centuries, Bashar only missed two Tests against New Zealand in 2004 at home in Bangladesh's previous 52 matches.

The team think-tank took the decision as the most successful Bangladesh skipper only scored 188 runs in his last 16 innings.

“A hard time has come in my career because I was never dropped from the team. But I don't want to finish my career in such a way. I have the confidence that I will be able to come back to bid international cricket goodbye with some respect,” said Bashar.

“As there was a valid reason behind the omission, I took the decision sportingly I have fully respect the management's decision but I am not ready to take the final decision on my career because I am still feeling good,” he added.“I can still wake up early and my body doesn't betray me. So, why would I think that everything is finished? I believe that I still have the ability to contribute to my country,” said Bashar.

However, he was aware that there is hardly any scope to prove his worth to make his comeback in the team.

“Bangladesh's next two series will be held late in 2008 and in that time I will only able to play the Premier League to show my worth. It would have been better if there National Crickt League was going on. But whatever it is, board has told me not to take any decision in one year,” he informed.

Bashar however promised that he will not be crying for any match to make his farewell from the field.

“I am not that kind of man.”

from dailystar:

Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful was emotional when he announced that they have decided to leave out his predecessor from the 12-member squad and said as well that it would be their last game with long-serving left-arm spinner Rafique.

“He (Bashar) is the most successful batsman in our country and for the first time in his career he was dropped for his performance. It was a hard decision for us but we have to go with the reality. On the other hand, it is one of our best performer's (Rafique) last match,” said an emotion-choked Ashraful in a press briefing at the venue yesterday.

“Bashar was out of form in the last eight Tests so it was obvious for him. It's simple that one should perform to keep his place no matter how big he is,” he added.

And the ace batsman was quick to bring himself out of the emotion as he said that his team was very focussed on their game and the two emotional issues would hardly make any impact in their performance.

“We are all professional players and that's why there is no scope to get emotional with anything. Our main focus is to put on a much better performance in the second Test than the first one,” Ashraful said.

It is emotional indeed to say good bye to Mohd. Rafique, also, Bashar has been kind of father figure to the team for a long while... anyways... we just have to move forward and hope that our young lads can perform now.

But whatever it is, board has told me not to take any decision in one year
First reaction after reading this
:hairpull:
Then
:timeout:
Thought about BD professionals on how they think

Finally figured it out. His contract is for one year. He is on leave with pay before the retirement period. Only in BD. That is showing deep respect to a BD senior player from the board.

Thought about BD professionals on how they think

Finally figured it out. His contract is for one year. He is on leave with pay before the retirement period. Only in BD. That is showing deep respect to BD.

:great::joy::bravo::fire::applause::up::floor:

T_E is it bashar dosh or the selectors or who every extended his contract for one year's dosh? I think most of us would have done the same. He has to feed his family you know...

Are you serious? Isn't it up to the chief selector to do that? Pathetic if true. He deserves that much respect regardless of recent form or lack of runs. Longest tenured former captain as well.

The decision to drop him was long overdue. Actually, he should have been dropped right after the India series. He earned the right to play vs India. His lack of form was based on ODI's, which was the only version that he played after the Australia series. Taking him to SL, or at least not getting dropped midway through that series was wrong. Bigger mistake was to take him to NZ and continue in the 1st test vs SA. Well, at least, he can't never say that they didn't give him a chance to regain his form. This was inevitable.

I wish him luck and thank him for his monumental contribution to BD cricket. This is not a time to rejoice though he made it very difficult for everybody.

Beamer,

It's the team management who selects the final 12 and hence the captain usually conveys the message especially if on overseas tours. But your point is well taken. May be our chief selector wants to dissasociate himself from this decision.

Anyway, it was the order of the day. But I do hope that they play Razzak and not Rajin in his place. Playing an extra batsman at not 7 won't change anything, playing an extra bowler might.

No sir, I am in no way faulting HB here.

How can the board ask someone not to take decision for one year? Specially when he is not performing. On the same token they hailed Rafique's decision (who is still performing - compare with Mash)? There is limit to being biased.

Ditto. I was a skeptic before but now I am a bit convinced that politics is playing in the selection and a really bad one indeed. Reward the non-perfomers and sideline the performers. Man,, I never thought I would say this,, but I am really missing Reebok Farook!!

About time and it's purely because of his lack of form. In his prime he was our best test player no doubt about that in my mind. Recently it seems that the game has passed him by and it's better for him to retire now before he puts some eggs in the egg baskets. Bashar deserves some respect for what he's given to the country. He took both the criticisms and compliments with a smile. He was a class act.
