View Full Version : No Sakib for the triangular series

April 29, 2008, 01:51 PM
The all-rounder from Khulna, who made a splendid hundred after a brilliant half-century during the five-match series, skipped training as he has decided not to play the upcoming triangular tournament because of his HSC examinations while Razzak is now involved in the ongoing Indian Premier League for the Bangalore franchise.

"I have already talked with the board officials regarding my examinations and sent them a letter by citing leave to complete my academic obligations which will start from May 29. It would not be possible for me to play the series because my exams will continue during the tournament," Shakib told over phone yesterday.



Chief selector Rafiqul Alam, who was present during the national players' bleep test along with Naimur Rahman, said that they have yet to get any information from the board regarding Shakib's absence.

"Actually the board will decide whether they will let him go or not. We still have not received anything from the board," said Rafiq.

I really don't want to see him against the teams like India or Pakistan who plays spin better than other sides. I would pick an extra batsman like Rakibul.

please don't comment on something that you have no proof of...

For your info he didn't even play the primary league for any big teams as he wanted to study for the exam. That shows character. wish every one could follow his foot step instead of running behind money...

Yes

i donno what positive side you guys have seen in it. i find Sakib's stepping out for the HSC exam stupid.

he has been in national team for quite sometime and he will be there for a long time unless something serious happens. whats the point of wasting time for studies now? he will not make any big in study for sure.

this is probably pure Bangladeshi mentality that you have to have some so called institutional degree to be a 'gentleman' no matter how big success you have achieved in other field.

look at the big players of India, Pak etc. how many of them completed their college education? yes, there are few like Anil Kumle etc but most of them concentrated in cricket and left school as soon as they get chance in any level of national team.

IMO just completing SSC is enough for players, actors, singers etc who have much better future in other field.

the SSC/HSC/college for players is not a backup plan in case their playing career doesnt end up as planned....

education makes one a better person, and will hence make a better player. Shakib has all the potential to be the future captain of BD, and he'll definitely be a better captain than Matin.... atleast Shakib wont resist to "learn".....

it's quite the opposite, he kind of left pakistani team to study in england. And although I think there are many successful examples "today" of successful cricketers who didnt go through the college or university, there are many who become something in life and then excel in cricket. And to be something in life, you need education, well atleast thats the normal convention.

personally, whilst i am in theory pro-education (i hate going to school myself), this speaks volumes about our cricket. its like lebron james saying to the cavs, "i think i should sit out the playoff series against washington so i can re-take the SATs."

a pro athlete is a pro athlete, i.e. education is not in their destiny.

but best wishes to shakib on and off the field.

Gowza
April 29, 2008, 09:17 PM
well an education is good for anyone even pro athlete's. everyone needs a back up plan imo, what if his cricket career doesn't pan out for whatever reason? also even if he has a long cricket career what happens after that? you still need money to live so i don't mind this move by shakib, my only question is couldn't they accomodate his education schedule around his cricketing schedule? i'm pretty sure in other countries most educational institutions will accommodate people like pro athlete's so they can do both without overlapping too much. i'm talking about exams obviously, couldn't they have been scheduled away from a national team series? i'm not saying schedule everyone's exam according to that but i'm surprised that shakib can't sit the exams at another date which doesn't overlap with a series.

... a pro athlete is a pro athlete, i.e. education is not in their destiny.

A kid is a kid, i.e. he needs to grow up before set up his destiny. In every other country ( mostly ) going to high-school is a mandatory, which is equivalent to our HSC. So, in a way he is going to get the bottom level standard ( of education ) compared to develop country. If we were talking about PhD or MS then I would understand the point.

Lets pray his best and success.

Mahir
April 30, 2008, 12:35 AM
its like lebron james saying to the cavs, "i think i should sit out the playoff series against washington so i can re-take the SATs."

Lebron's situation with the Cavs is not exactly similar to Sakib's with the BD national cricket team. Cleveland won't have a face without their King, but same cannot be said about Sakib obviously. And as a North American following major league sports here, you should know better what actually a playoff series means to a professional athlete here. Sakib is not exactly skipping the World Cup cricket's Second Round matches to sit for his exams.

ATMR said it best...

There's nothing wrong in stepping out of national duty for a bit for academic purposes if you can afford to.

All the best for Sakib :up: He's got all the potential to be the role model for BD's young cricketers of the future.

Actually none of our spinners are good enough for international matches.

None of our spin bowlers can turn the balls like spinners from other countries.

Razzak, our main spin bowler, cannot spin the ball as well.

Rafique could spin the ball but hes not in the squad anymore.

Enam can do it too but he's out of the squad as welll.

Those who are complaining why he is going for education I would say all most all the great captains are highly educated. Brearly is a doctorate in psychology, Artherton and Imran are Durham and Oxford blue, Saurav and Jardin are product of highly acclaimed English Public School system. We are Sakib's captaincy. The education would help him to be a better captain

[বাংলা]উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পরীক্ষা দিচ্ছেন আশরাফুল-আফতাবও

ঢাকা, ২৪ মে (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) --- তার কলেজের গন্ডি পেরোনোর কথা ছিল ২০০১ সালে। কিন্তু সে বছর এপ্রিলে জিম্বাবুয়ে সফরের বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা পাওয়ায় সে যাত্রা তো হয়ইনি। একের পর এক ব্যস্ত ক্রিকেট সূচীর কারণে পরের সাত বছরেও আর উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পরীক্ষা দেওয়া হয়নি মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলের। তবে এবার আর 'মিস' করছেন না, সামনে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজ থাকার পরেও ২৯ মে থেকে শুরু হতে যাওয়া উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পরীক্ষা দেবেন বলেই পণ করেছেন বাংলাদেশ অধিনায়ক। এখানে তার আরেকজন সঙ্গী আছেন বলেও শনিবার বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম-কে জানালেন, "উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পরীক্ষা শুধু আমিই দিচ্ছি না। আফতাবও (আফতাব আহমেদ) দিচ্ছে।"

তাদের আরেক সতীর্থ সাকিব আল হাসানের মতো অবশ্য সাধারণ শিক্ষা বোর্ডের অধীনে পরীক্ষা দিচ্ছেন না আশরাফুল-আফতাব। কারিগরী শিক্ষা বোর্ডের অধীনেই বাংলাদেশ দলের এই দুই তারকা ব্যাটসম্যান উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পরীক্ষায় অংশ নিতে যাচ্ছেন। অলরাউন্ডার সাকিব পরীক্ষা দেওয়ার জন্য ইতিমধ্যেই বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের (বিসিবি) কাছ থেকে লম্বা ছুটি নিয়ে ফেলেছেন। এজন্য ৮ জুন থেকে ভারত-পাকিস্তানকে নিয়ে আয়োজিত ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজেও খেলছেন না বিকেএসপির ছাত্র সাকিব। তবে আশরাফুল ছুটি নিচ্ছেন না বলেই নিশ্চিত করলেন, "না, আমরা ছুটি নিচ্ছি না। খেলার সময় পরীক্ষা থাকলে ছাড় পাবো।" সেটা কী রকম? এ প্রশ্নের জবাবে বললেন, "খেলার দিন কোনো পরীক্ষা থাকলে ওই পরীক্ষাটা পরে সুবিধাজনক কোনো সময়ে দেওয়ার সুযোগ দেওয়া হবে আমাদের।"

সাত বছরে যে পরীক্ষাটা দেওয়া হল না, এবার সেটা দেওয়ার জন্য উদ্যোগী হওয়ার কারণ জানতে চেয়ে অন্য এক আশরাফুলকেই খুঁজে পাওয়া গেল। যিনি ক্রিকেটের পাশাপাশি পড়াশোনাটাও ভালোভাবে চালিয়ে যাওয়াকে ভীষণ গুরুত্বপূর্ণ বলে মনে করছেন, "ক্রিকেট ক্যারিয়ার শেষে কিছু একটা তো করতে হবে। এজন্য পড়াশোনা করা জরুরী। উচ্চমাধ্যমিক পাসের পর পড়াশোনাটা সিরিয়াসলিই করার ইচ্ছে আছে।" [/বাংলা]

But what I am not sure is "do you really need to know really good english language to get a good education in lower level ( 1to 12th grade) ? Even you go for higher studies, does he really needs to know english VERY WELL? Can he get by with Bangla or German or Japaneese?
