March 1, 2008, 07:42 AM
1. If he retires or not,
2. There are other Rafique threads,

But there won't be any Congratulation thread of his achievement in BC, that can not happen.

Congratulations Mohammad Rafique. The inspiration of our SLAs. The first 100 test wicket taker of Bangladesh. You will be always in the record books. First double double in both form of the game. (100 wkts and 1000 runs)

Wish you all the best. (was so happy that he got the last two wickets) He will be missed. :big_hug:

Congratulations to a gutsy cricketer. maybe he will play in one more series, who knows?

March 1, 2008, 08:50 AM
Congrates to Rafiq, one of great cricket legends of BD.

March 1, 2008, 08:53 AM
Congrats to our legend Rafiq.

For a sec, i thought he wont be able to achieve it, 100 wickets.
There is no way he are making the Saffers bat again.

May be he can score a century on his last innings. From the looks of it, we badly need it.

March 1, 2008, 09:18 AM
Congrats Rafique... may be he will score a 50 in his farewell innings.

A truly self made cricketer

our cicketers have so many things to learn from him, to become a complete cricketer.

If you have heard from his interview with Athar Ali after day 2, He put the way to improvement in very simple words. I agree with him 100%. Each player should pesevere to improve his own game. That's what our players don't do, that's why they make the same mistakes evey time.

March 1, 2008, 09:34 AM
As he said in his Interview, BD wil play cricket for hundred yrs BUT his name wil b in the record book......First man having 100 wickets in both form of game as well as 1000 runs.Wat an achievement for a new born Cricket nation....Congrats....

Triplicate thread.
which ones are the one and two?
I didn't see them when I opened this thread. May be you need to check the threads starting time and which one is the real triplicate thread.

If you don't want to congratulate Rafique that is fine. then don't post in this thread.

He's the living proof that Bangladesh can produce great cricketers... unfortunately time is not on his side... who's going to be next Rafique?

i believe his first 25 wickets came at less than 30 apiece. he had a better average than murali for his first 25 scalps, AFAIK
