View Full Version : Bangladesh One day team for upcoming Triangular Series.

May 3, 2008, 09:22 AM
In a little over a month’s time Bangladesh is going to host a big cricket event - The Triangular series involving Asian heavyweights- India, Pakistan and themselves as well where each team plays the other once and then the final.

So far not heard of Coach coming back from vacation or holding a short training camp that typically precedes any upcoming series home or abroad.

Based on our recent performance my choice of playing eleven would be something like this.

1. Tammim
2. Javed Omar
3. Rajin Saleh
4. Raqibul
5. Riyad
6. Aftab
7. Dhiman
8. Mashrafee
9. Razzaq
10. Rafiq
11. Rasel /Shahadat

Criteria of Selection

No 1 and 2 spot

Opening Pair
Undoubtedly Tammim and Javed Omar.

Omar’s job would be graft at one end and Tamim to accelerate the score.

Even if Javed scores 20 - 30 odd runs it is important that the opening pair see off the pace attack for at least 20 overs and reach a decent total so that players following them do not have to rush for irresponsible strokes.

The Left Right combination is also good to unsettle opposition team who has to rearrange field placing every now and then.

Also by bringing Javed we are bringing experience in the team which will stand BD in good stead against both India and Pakistan as they are definitely to field their best Eleven.

No 3 spot
The No 3 spot should also change from Aftab to Rajin another grafter. The idea of having two grafters is to hold one end while the attacking players can play their normal and natural game. Also to last full 50 over.

No 4 spot
Ashraful needs a break from this series and should be replaced by Raqibul who is capable of grafting and then accelerating as the situation demands.

No 5 spot
Riyad is our new find of a stable middle order and he would fill this spot .

No 6 spot
Aftab was played in a wrong position against Pakistan. So I would like BCB to stick with him. With his attacking flair coming at no 6 would allow him to play his natural style.
But no unnecessary risks. His job would be to accelerate the pace with one boundary an over. No need to go for two boundaries or over boundary unless he stays till the 45th over which is most unlikely.

No 7 spot
Dhiman
I would like him to come at 7. He is an exciting player to watch and capable of accelerating the pace and creating gaps as well. He is a good find for us.

No 8 spot
Mashrafee
None other than Mashrafee Off course. Boundaries and Over boundaries Specialist. But no unnecessary swings please.

Should do as situation demands. If he is made the captain he has to play a controlled innings and may have to sacrifice some of his more ambitious shots as he will be required to play according to the team needs and situation.

No 9 spot
Razzaq
One of the vastly improved Bangladesh lower order player who can stick around for a while and play sensibly and contribute 20 -30 odd runs.

No 10 spot
Rafiq
I expect BCB to bring back Rafiq in place of Saqib. Rafiq with his wealth of knowledge would be helpful for our wickets which I am sure will be spinning ones. We cannot match India or Pakistan in the department of pace attack. It is in the spinning department Razzaq and Rafiq will be able not only to contain the opposition batsmen but also take wickets.

He is the old war horse – seasoned campaigner. We are all aware he has lost a lot of his old touch that would fetch the team quick boundaries and over boundaries He should try what he can.

We are more interested for Rafiq to pin down the Pakisatani and Indian batsmen and bamboozle them through their gates with his wizardry.
We are pinning a lot of hopes on Rafiq and if recalled and selected I am sure he will not disappoint us.

No 11 spot
Rasel/Shahadat.
Barring the Pakistan tour Rasel is one of a kind. In terms of containing the openers and striking early wickets Rasel had outperformed both Shahadat and Mashrafee as Last One day World Cup results reveal.

Unfortunately he has been lately out of form. He should be taken care of by Head and Bowling Coach ASAP to bring him back to his old form. The sooner the better.

Shahadat has proved himself to be a better bowler in the longer version of the game.
But if Rasel fails to find form in the training camp (not heard yet though) that one expects before the Triangular, the logical choice would be Shahadat.

Reserves
Shahriyar Nafees – Lower order
Sajidul - Paceman
Alok Kapali –All-rounder

2.mashrafe
3.tamim
4.s.nafis
5.a. razzak
6.rasssel
7.D.ghosh
8.Riyad
9. Junaid
10. Nazimuddin
11.shahadat
12. Reza
13. ............(don't know)
14. .............(don't know)





Saqibul unable 2 play
so i think Alok Kapali might get another chance
And Rajin saleh should replece Rafiqul Hassan
and Selector should give a chance 2 Talha Jubair who has been really good in domestic competition.

I think Talha is Better then Shahadat Hossain.....Talha also can bowl same speed as SH

i never came up with a team list before. but lately i am thinking that we need to seriously consider having two separate teams for tests and odis (with a few players contributing in both teams, of course).

my current bd odi team (camp call) desire -

1. tamim iqbal
2. shahriar nefees
3. nazimuddin
4. mohammed ashraful
5. aftab ahmed
6. mahmudullah riad
7. farhad reza
8. abdur razzak
9. mashrafi bin mortaza
10. seyed rasel
11. mushfiqur rahim
12. dhiman ghosh
13. zunaed siddiqui
14. sajidul islam
15. raqibul hasan
16. alok kapali
17. marshall ayub

i also think bd team and players should get martial arts training, seriously! like the ex-east german and north korean olympic athletes!
i also think it will be great for the govt. to start secret camps for little kids to be trained as mean cricketers with guerilla sniper like mental strength!(joke)
but on a serious note, bd team should go thru one of those commando traning things that they did before!

i agree with you nycpro96! dhimy it should be! i also think the camp should call for imrul along with talha, rubel and dolar (the pacers)! i don't know if one or some of them are more test material than odi! i kept shahadat out thinking he is more of a test bowler. maybe raqibul should be kept out as i think of him more as a test batsman also!
i don't know man, i feel very blank at the moment about the team's practice sessions!
i think these guys need to be practicing constanly right now!
i mean all the palyers i threw on the table should be separated in teams and keep playing practice matches, day and night!
i don't know, i feel very frustrated and a bit depressed!

Recent performance (in international and domestic matches) wise, this should be the team -

1. Tamim Iqbal
2. ??
3. ??
4. Rokibul Hasan
5. Mushfiqur Rahim
6. Mahmudullah Riyad
7. Farhad Reza
8. Abdur Razzak
9. Mashrafe Mortaza (Capt)
10. Shahadat Hossain
11. Syed Rasel

12th man: Aftab Ahmed

There is hardly any decent choice for #2 or #3 slot. We will probably have to stick Shahriar and Ashraful in those slots to prevent any new rookie being dragged into the team at this point.

From http://newagebd.com/spt.html
The national cricket squad for the upcoming tri-series involving India, Pakistan and hosts Bangladesh is likely to be announced on May 22.

On completion of the Super-League of the Premier Division Cricket League on May 21, the national cricketers will undergo a full fledged, short camp before playing the tri series slated for June 8-15 at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Talking to UNB on Tuesday afternoon, Chief Selector Rafiqul Alam said: ‘We are thinking of announcing the squad for the tri series most probably on May 22.’

The chief of the three-member national selectors’ panel also hinted at announcing the Bangladesh A squad soon for its tour to England and Ireland next month.

Hello Crikfreak,

Thanks for expressing your candid opinion.

Interestingly I have observed that your line of thinking on different aspects of cricket is similar to mine. I dare say 70 – 80 %.

One of your key qualities I have observed is conforming to Code of Conduct even in criticism of posts, streams of mine and others which is the hallmark of a good critic

I also notice you are actively contributing in most of the posts and like myself is very concerned about the recent plight of BD cricket which I may dare say is in Dire Straits now.

There are also quite a number of Active and Participative readers who with their valuable insights are providing wealth of cricketing knowledge.

We all learn and share from each other from the Forum. We are all indeed grateful to BanglaCricket Forum for giving us this great and unique opportunity. So Kudos to the entire staff of BanglaCricket forum for making this happen.

I am firm believer of PMA – Positive Mental Attitude. Having said that I am open to Appreciation, Criticism, Sarcasm and any other Ism that exists but beyond my Knowledge. I take these sportingly and next moment put it behind and Move On.

Bottom line is that whether one appreciates, criticizes, indulges in sarcasm (most cases unconsciously) each and every one of the reader is a buddy for me.

Wishing you the best!

Cheers!

I want BCB to name a similar 15 squad for the tri-series and the Asia Cup:
Tamim Iqbal
Junaid Siddique
Shahriar Nafees
Mohammad Ashraful(C)
Alok Kapali
Mahmudullah
Dhiman Ghosh(WK)
Abdur Rajjak
Mashrafe Mortaza
Shahadat Hossain
Syed Rasel

Nazimuddin
Mushfiqur Rahim
Mosharof Hossain
Farhad Reza

Obviously Moyna wont be playing so I want Kapali to replace him, I really dont want a debutant. Roquibul Hasan I think isnt agrresive enough to play in this series because India and Pakistan are both very attacking teams batting-wise and will be scoring around 300 and to beat that we must have players who can score a run-a-ball or better. Mushfiq has been scoring ever since he was dropped at a quick rate and although I dont want him to start a match I want him to remain as a cover to Dhiman, in case Dhiman's form slumps or he gets injured plus that way Dhimy will always be under pressure to perform. Mosharof Hossain never got a fair chance and he deserves it. I have dropped Aftab and I dont feel the need to justify that!

You want Javed, Rajin and Roquib, all of them to play? Are we playing a 10-day match?


Hello bdchamp20,

Here’s is the rationale for my selection of BD One day team for the triangular.

We all know and have seen how our top order of Tammim, Nafees, Junaed , Ashraful and Aftab consistently collapsed and failed time and again for playing wrong/rash strokes/sudden rush of blood thus gifting away the wickets and bringing about unnecessary collapse. This has been the story for all most all the one dayers against Pakistan.

So to counter a very similar opposition that is coming next month we need people who will bring stability and steady the innings. We still have Tammim to give us a flying start we need. Javed is chosen to hold on one end and stay at least 20 – 25 overs.

If either one fails Rajin can come and graft and stay at least 10 – 15 overs.

If the openers can see off the pace and able to stay till 25 overs, at a later stage Aftab can play his natural style and accelerate the score.

Raqibul, Riyad can graft and attack in the middle order as the situation warrants.

Then if Dhiman, Mashrafee both stroke players can stay between 35 – 45 overs they will be able to further pile up the innings to a respectable one. If they can survive till 45 oves the rest can do whatever they can for the remaining 5 overs.

Let’s not forget Razzaq who has improved immensely and has been consistently making 30 odd runs.

Packing your team with too many stroke players will do no good as our results shows against Pakistan.

The only change that may be considered is playing Ashraful for Raqibul if the former get backs his form.

We cannot simply afford to have a fully young team. It has to be a combination of a few older players and the younger ones. There is no substitute to experience.

This off course is my personal view. Every one is entitled to his /her view. Having said the chosen eleven has to be based on strong rationale.

As an unabashed Alok Kapali fan: I don't want to see him in the team before at least TWO successful tours with the A Team.

I do not want to see him fail at the highest level even if others already in the team continue to.

[বাংলা]প্রধান নির্বাচক মনে করেন এখন বাংলাদেশ দল করাটাই একটা কঠিন কাজ

ঢাকা, ১৯ মে (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) --- আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটের পর ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটেও ব্যর্থতার ধারা অব্যাহত বাংলাদেশের বেশিরভাগ তারকা ব্যাটসম্যানের। এই অবস্থায় আগামী মাসে ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজের দল গড়তে গিয়ে গলদঘর্ম হওয়ার কথা অস্বীকার করলেন না রফিকুল আলমও। প্রধান নির্বাচক বললেন, "গত কিছুদিনে যা হয়েছে তা অবশ্যই সুখকর নয়। এসময় দল গড়ার কাজটা একটু কঠিন তো মনে হচ্ছেই।" কঠিন হলেও ১৪ জনের দল নির্বাচকদের ২২ মে'র মধ্যেই দিয়ে দিতে হবে। এরপর পুরো দলের নিবিড় অনুশীলন হওয়ার কথা বগুড়ায়।

ওদিকে আবার সাকিব আল হাসানের অনুপস্থিতিও বাড়তি ভাবনার কারণ হয়ে গেছে নির্বাচকদের। এইচএসসি পরীক্ষার কারণে তিনি এই ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজে খেলতে পারবেন না বলে জানিয়ে দিয়েছেন। সুতরাং ব্যাটিংয়ের পাশাপাশি পুরো ১০ ওভার বল করতে সক্ষম, এরকম কারোরই নির্বাচকদের ভাবনায় আসা স্বাভাবিক। ইদানীং আবার দল তারুণ্যের জোয়ারে ভেসে যাওয়ায় সিনিয়র কাউকে ফেরানোর দাবিও উপেক্ষা করতে পারছেন না তারা। প্রধান নির্বাচক নিজেও দলে সিনিয়র এবং অভিজ্ঞ কাউকে রাখার ব্যাপারে দ্বিমত করছেন না, "সিনিয়র কেউ থাকলে তো খুবই ভালো হয়।"

কিন্তু তাকে আবার পারফরম করে দলে আসতে হবে। আপাতত সেরকম একজনই আছেন, যিনি এবার প্রিমিয়ার ক্রিকেট লিগে বিমানের হয়ে ধারাবাহিকভাবে রান করেছেন। অলক কাপালির কথা তুলতেই রফিকুল জানিয়ে দিলেন, তাদের বিবেচনায় বেশ ভালোভাবেই আছেন ২০০৬ এর ৪ আগস্ট হারারেতে জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে সর্বশেষ ওয়ানডে খেলা এই ব্যাটসম্যান। "অনেকদিন ধরেই ও আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটে নেই"- বললেও প্রধান নির্বাচক পরে বলেছেন, "পারফরম যেহেতু করছে কাজেই অদূর ভবিষ্যতে অলক দলে আসবে।" ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজেই কিনা বলেননি। তবে সাকিবের শূন্যস্থান এরকম কাউকে দিয়ে ভরানোর ব্যাপারেই বেশি ভোট পড়বে ক্রিকেট সংশ্লিষ্টদের। তাছাড়া ব্যাটিংয়ের পাশাপাশি তার লেগস্পিন বোলিং আক্রমণেও আনবে বৈচিত্র্য। অলক ছাড়াও এই জায়গাটার জন্য বিবেচনায় আছেন আরও দুজন। প্রধান নির্বাচকের দেয়া তথ্যানুযায়ী সেই দুজন হচ্ছেন, মেহরাব হোসেন জুনিয়র এবং সোহরাওয়ার্দী শুভ।

দলে থাকলে গত বছর টোয়েন্টি টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপের পর এই প্রথম দলে ফিরবেন অলক। তার মতোই এবার দলে ফেরার সম্ভাবনা বেশি মুশফিকুর রহিমেরও। উইকেটকিপিংয়ের চেয়ে যার ব্যাটিংটাকেই বেশি শ্রদ্ধার চোখে দেখা হয়। কিন্তু ক্রমাগত ব্যর্থতায় তার জায়গা হারানো সুযোগ এনে দেয় ধীমান ঘোষকে। কিন্তু আন্তর্জাতিক ক্ষেত্রে ধীমানের উল্লেখযোগ্য কিছু করতে না পারা এবং প্রিমিয়ার লিগে বিকেএসপির হয়ে নিয়মিত রান করা মুশফিকের দলে ফেরার সম্ভাবনা বাড়িয়ে দিয়েছে অনেক। এছাড়া প্রধান নির্বাচক আরো কয়েকজনের নাম বললেন যারা আছেন তাদের বিবেচনায়। এই যেমন নাঈম ইসলাম, শামসুর রহমান শুভ এবং নাসির হোসেন।

তবে দলের কয়েকজন তারকা ব্যাটসম্যানের বিষয়ে নির্বাচকদের সিদ্ধান্ত কেমন হচ্ছে তা ঠিক বোঝা গেল না রফিকুলের কথায়। রান করতে না পারায় ক্লাব দল মোহামেডানের একাদশে জায়গা হারিয়েছেন আফতাব আহমেদ। জাতীয় দল থেকে তার বাদ পড়ার সম্ভাবনা নিয়ে কোনো কথাই বলতে চাইলেন না প্রধান নির্বাচক। তবে এটা বললেন, "চার-পাঁচজন তো দলের নিউক্লিয়াসই।" আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেটের পর ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটের ব্যর্থতার পরও কী তিনি নিউক্লিয়াসেই রয়ে গেছেন? এ প্রশ্নের অবশ্য উত্তর পাওয়া গেল না![/বাংলা]

Although Alok has not scored many fifties, he is consistent in scoring in the 30-40 range. Counting from the beginning of DPL, he has scored 463 runs which puts him in the 4th/5th spot among the batsmen.

Yes sir!!

Didn't think you belonged to that group also. Do not compromise standard for these sorry players.

If he can only score 30-40 then that says he has concentration problem and can't prolong innings. In intl stage that 30-40 becomes 20's or less. He had five matches to get something going in the super league. Andda parsey. Tri-series'a niley andda parbey. Our national team do not deserve that type of players. (Rubu?? Koi gela?)

And for his bowling: Too often he bowls short ball. Spinner!! short ball!! maair khaiya shesh hoiye jabey. Deshi league boiley baichha gasey. 10 over ki 4 over'a IPL record bhaigey felbey. We will play another player short if we take him.

T_E, other than Mushfiqur Rahim, no one else has shown a red hot streak in the league. Alok is what you call 'monder valo'. His form in NCL was also decent. I will prefer to see him brought back into the team instead of seeing Suhrawardi or Nasir rushed into it.

Anyone who knows Ashraful , also knows that he always comes back after being dropped once. if we drop him before the series and god forbid we parform badly there, he will be brought back again. It is just a series . let him play there like Ashraful originale that he can be crucified in the aftermath. This is the only way to close this Blackhole saga forever . He was never a true star anyway. Accedental hero , possibly.

I am not asking to leave Ashraful and Aftab out of the squad, but those two should given bottle carrying duties for this series in a last ditch effort to get the bolodamy out of them.

Zunaed should be kept away from the national team at this point to prevent him from turning into another talented spoiled star.

They might think that, they have been given rest (as they are important players) to prevent injuries before the Asia cup. :)

According to Prothom Alo report (http://www.prothom-alo.com/mcat.news.details.php?nid=OTk2ODM=&mid=OA==), Naeem has scored 527 runs in DPL. He has also shown success as an offspinner lately. I won't be surprised if Naeem is called as Shakib's substitute in this series.

Where do you find always? that happen only once after he was dropped he scored some 200 runs and got back... i doubt that he can do the same again...

The team for the tri series is going to be more unpredictable then ever before. There appears to be players from 3 different catagories who all want in on the team(discards, current and prospects). And every position, including the captains, is there for the taking! I simply cannot just name a group of 11 for the tri series but whoever is chosen, I hope to see:
-A stable opening partner for Tamim
-More oppurtunities given to rasel, rokibul and Zunaid
-dhiman batting higher up the order while aftab is bumped down

I being the biggest fan of Aftab want him to be dropped from the team for professional misconduct. Claiming satisfaction for an average of 10.75 is professional misconduct to me. He should be barred even from training with the team. Let he realize even an average of 107.5 would not be satisfactory for a batsman. Regarding Ash ; I considered him as a fluke; so I do not care whether he is playing or not as all current batsman of the team is fluke (bar may be Tamim)

Tigers teams to be named today

http://www.thedailystar.net/story.php?nid=38345

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will announce a 14-member team today for next month's triangular one-day series involving India and Pakistan.

The selection panel, led by Rafiqul Alam, will also declare teams for the Asia Cup to be held in Pakistan and Bangladesh A team for the coming tours of Ireland and England.

For the tri-nation tournament, which will kick off with the match between Pakistan and hosts Bangladesh in Mirpur, the national selectors were in difficulties to find the replacement for all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who is unavailable for his HSC examinations.

The selectors have been talking against changes in the last few days despite the Tigers' disappointing performance in their last assignment in Pakistan during a five-match one-day series and a Twenty20 match.

Their headache seems to be finding a similar replacement of Shakib and opener cum left-arm spinner Mehrab Hossain is the likely candidate to get the place as the selectors might not be ready to bring another fresh face in the fold in Nayeem Islam.

On the other hand, wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim has become a strong contender to get back his one-day place following his tremendous batting form, which saw him finish as the top scorer of the recently concluded Premier League.

It is also expected that the selectors will announce a 15-member team for the Asia Cup.

For the second string Bangladesh A team, the panel mostly considers those who are in the pipeline for the national side. That is why a number of out-of-favour players like Alok Kapali and the impressive performers of the Under-19 and Academy teams may crowd the squad.

The Tigers' full-fledged training camp for the tri-series will start tomorrow at Mirpur.

i don't want naeem to come in, though he would be the number one choice. a 40+ average in 29 List A innings is remarkable. keep it up. naeem should be on the A team, and if he can continue to play well, earn a spot in the 2009 BD squad.

May 26, 2008, 07:22 PM
u19s and newbies should be in the A team really. the only replacement for the national squad should be for shakib and they could take alok or mehrab for that rather than say naeem or shuvo. naeem is definitely an exciting prospect but it's probably better to see how he does on the A tour before injecting him into the national squad/team. i'm happy he's getting recognition for strong domestic performance though.

The daily star report indicates very less changes in the national team. I think the sellectors will also like to stic to the team they chose, for some more time. I think that Ash and Aftab will be serious and do well this time.

All of the previous National team discards, who are doing good at the domestic circuit, should be included in 'A' team.

Waiting for the team to be announced. Who can guarantee, what the sellectors have in mind? They have a lots of reasons for changing all 11 and also for not making any change.
