Bangladesh: Mohammad Ashraful (Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Shahriar Nafees, Roqibul Hassan, Mehrab Hossain Jr., Mushfiqur Rahim (Wicketkeeper), Mahmudullah Riyad, Mashtrafe bin Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Shahadat Hossain Rajib, Dollar Mahmud, Sajedul Islam, Arafat Sunny.

Bangladesh A: Zunaed Siddique (Captain), Nazim Uddin, Shamsur Rahman Shuvo, Alok Kapali, Naeem Islam, Dhiman Ghosh (Wicketkeeper), Nadif Chowdhury, Musharraf Hossain Rubel, Mahbubul Alam Robin, Rubel Hossain, Farhad Reza, Sohrawardi Shuvo, Farhad Hossain.

Well, looks like the BCB finally did the common sense thing and moved the practice games to the actual venue instead of holding them at Bogra.

I would like to see the following XIs (perhaps a 13-13 affair would be better):

BD:

1) Tamim
2) Mehrab Jr
3) Raqibul
4) Ash
5) SN
6) Rahim
7) Riyad
8) Razzak
9) Dollar
10) Shahadat
11) Sajid

x) Sunny

BD-A:

1) Junaid
2) Nazim
3) Naeem
4) Alok
5) Shamsur Rahman
6) Dhiman
7) Farhad
8) Nadif
9) Rubel
10) Robin
11) Mosharraf

should be a good couple of games.

8) Razzak

I wouldn't like to have 3 test specialists in my team.

Mehrab jr, Mushy, Raqibul all are very slow in making runs. Mehrab is very very slow. even in test cricket.

If BD play these 3, then BD-A will win by big margin. Mark my words!

Why dont we do go one step ahead:
Since Ash still claims he is young and learning the game as it goes...
why dont we chip him in the u-19 team.

im sure the guys at the passport office can take care of the rest.

Mehrab Jr is not being used as an opener even in club matches, I doubt he will be given this position again in the national team. Although, it would benefit Shahriar if he was taken off the opening slot.

we always get 3 ODI series, and guess what in the 4th sakib scored a TON. we need more games if want to start accumulating some accolades. final jeetar moto shomai hoi nai akhono...might as well play 2 games rather than just 1 where we will lose BADLY (if we get a free ride to the finals, the batsmen will all throw their wickets inside 10 overs and the other team will chase the total down in 20 balls -> game over in 45 minutes).

The first practice match between Bangladesh national team and the second string team was completed under floodlights without any interruption despite scattered rains on the day before start of action yesterday.

The match however started half an hour late from the scheduled time due to the rain to make it a 48-over-a-side affair. The venue of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur once again proved to be nice as puddles of water drained away quite quickly.

There was however no sign of upturn in the Tigers batting as the national team were bundled out for a paltry 194 in 47.5 overs. It was another usual top-order collapse even in the practice match as the senior side were reduced to 21 for three after batting first.

Shahriar Nafees fell victim of a run out and his opening partner Tamim Iqbal went for a wild shot against pacer Mahbubul Alam only to see his stumps shattered while skipper Mohammad Ashraful was dismissed for 16.

Before Nazimuddin caught him at extra cover off new ball bowler Rubel Hossain, the Tigers captain could have been out twice.

Rokibul Hasan and wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim looked well before the latter was trapped in front by Rubel for 25 runs.

"Mushfiqur should have batted till the end," said chief selector Rafiqul Alam who praised Rokibul's patience. Rokibul made 52 off 98 balls with five fours and a six while Mehrab Hossain added 31 and Mashrafe Bin Mortaza chipped in with 24.

Till the report was last filed, Bangladesh A were on the brink of victory with 182 for five at the end of 35 overs.

[বাংলা]বাংলাদেশ 'এ' র কাছে উইকেটে হেরে গেল জাতীয় দল

মিরপুর, জুন ৩ (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) -- ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজের প্রস্তুতির শুরুটা ভালো হলো না মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলের দলের। মঙ্গলবার মিরপুর শের-এ বাংলা স্টেডিয়ামে অনুষ্ঠিত দিন-রাতের ম্যাচে বাংলাদেশ 'এ' দলের কাছে ৫ উইকেটে হেরে গেছে তারা।

টস জিতে আগে ব্যাট করার সিদ্ধান্ত নিয়েছিলেন আশরাফুল। কিন্তু রাকিবুল হাসান ছাড়া বাকি ব্যাটসম্যানদের ব্যর্থতায় ৪৭.৫ ওভারে মাত্র ১৯৪ রানে অল আউট হয়ে যায় বাংলাদেশ জাতীয় দল। অবশ্য রাকিবুলের ৫২-র পাশাপাশি মেহরাব জুনিয়র ৩১, মুশফিকুর রহিম ২৫, মাশরাফি ২৪ আর অধিনায়ক আশরাফুল ১৬ রান না করলে হয়তো আরো বড় লজ্জাই বরণ করতে হতো সিনিয়রদের।

জবাবে ধীমান ঘোষের অপরাজিত ৭৩ আর নাঈম ইসলামের অপরাজিত ৩৯ রানের সুবাদে ৩৯.১ ওভারেই ৫ উইকেটে ১৯৫ রান করে ফেলে জুনায়েদ সিদ্দিকির নেতৃত্বাধীন 'এ' দল। ডলার মাহমুদ আর মাশরাফি বিন মুর্তজা দুটো করে উইকেট নিয়ে এক পর্যায়ে ম্যাচটাকে বেশ জমিয়ে তুলেছিলেন। মাত্র ৯৫ রানে ৫ উইকেট হারিয়েছিল 'এ' দল। তারপরও ধীমান-নাঈমের নৈপুন্যে জিতে যায় তারা।

Nazimuddin and Zunaed opened batting for the A-team and scored 39 and 22 respectively. A-team pacers Mahbubul Alam and Farhad Reza each took two wickets for 20 and 45 runs respectively. Mosharraf Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Alok Kapali, and Suhrawardi Shuvo each took one wicket.

It was Mosharraf Hossain Rubel who took the wicket of Mushfiq, not Rubel Hossain. Rubel Hossain took the wicket of Ashraful.

Dhiman scored his 73 runs (not out) from 71 balls.

Mushi lbw Mosharraf 25 (35)
Roqibul 52 (98)

Mehrab Jr. 31
Mash 24

Ash's innings: BD team was 4 for 2. Ash comes in and starts hitting sixes. 2 sixes and then predictable out. Juta khuila pitano dorkar. A team scouted him well and i think gave him the balls to hit knowing he will mis hit. 21/3. Mushi and Roqibul was building the innings and then the lbw decision came. Tiger mama Rafiqul Alam wanted Mushi to bat out the entire innings (48+ overs) lol. I have never heard in One day game you ask a player bat 48+ overs. He is our chief selector.

Glad to see Riyad scoring inside and outside domestic... Hope he continues to fare well alongside Tamim and Sakib.

The decision to take out Dhiman is already being regretted by everyone. Now if Mushy plays a few bad innings it will be bad for both Dhiman and Mushy. Pathetic Decision. Mushy should have been a replacement for batsman Aftab. Team would have been more stable if he batted up the order.

There is no mention of how our beloved Alok Kapali did with bat. I am guessing he is one the three cheap wickets that fell after the opening stand of Nazim and Zunaed.

Why it will be bad for Dhiman? Did you meant Tiger mama instead?

Hai Hai Hai... Dhiman, the noo good player, Ashrfuller/Mushir Ijjat loot liya.
Dhiman showed his quality as a batter....now what?!!!
Replaces Ash?
Waiting for Mr. Selector's reply...:waiting:

the "A team" is definitely more committed to play a better game.

i see that everybody is bashing the the selectors, but when people like Dhiman and Zunaed do not perform in the national team or in the local circuit consistently, the selectors gets nervous.

Personally i am not feeling very bad about Dhiman's omission, he is still younger than mushy and it is better for him to develop his game under less pressure. Judging from batting for the national team, his batting still needs some work... but, the same is true for every bangladeshi batsman.

If Dhiman can produce couple more innings like this in next few matches (next practice match and A-team matches in Ireland), selectors should keep both Mushfiq and Dhiman in the A-team for England tour.

C_P,
Dhiman is not younger than mushi but both have age on their side. If we the fans can tell 7/8 matches against the big boys (especially the circumstances the player had to face in all 7/8 matches) is not enough for anyone to show his talent the selectors should have known better.

How foolish does Rafiqul Alam's comment sound when he says Mushi should have batted out the entire innings. Mushi got in the 2nd over of the game. Rafiq wanted Mushi to play 48+ overs? why? Even gadha at times keeps quiet. But this one doesn't. has to show the world in what level his gadhami is.

T_E, from reports, it seems Mushfiq came to bat after the fall of Ashraful's wicket. I can be wrong though.

Anyway, I am not complaining, it does not sound like Mushfiq got out trying to do something stupid like what Tamim or Ashraful did.

The worst part is that there will very rarely be a case where these youngsters will be able to come into bat for the national team without a lot of pressure and do what they love doing so much - play their natural game. Had Dhiman been on the other side of the board tonight, it is very likely he would soon find himself stranded on a deserted island with a bunch of tail-enders.

Guys like Mushy and Dhiman need to be batted up the order in the national team and need to be accompanied by senior players who can take on more responsibility and promise to perform damage control if they screw up. That is the only way younger players can settle down in the team and in international cricket and the only way that we can prosper as a unit. The way our double A batteries have been dying lately, this doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

Now we also know who is the thinktank behind Ash's outrageous excuses in the past.

Lets see the what happened for last few months...

- Our national players did ok/average in NCL. Some above average some below average.

- When we selected three teams with a pool of selected players, the younger team lead by Sakib wins games against team lead by National team captain and consist of more experienced/established national players.

- Our 2nd Team lead by Sakib did well again SA warmup matches both in one day as well as 4 days; whereas our national team did poorly against SA.

- Except for few youngsters, more or less our national players ( mainly the more experienced players) did poorly against Pakistan in the whitewash series.

- Our national players ( mainly the more experienced players) did poorly in local league to the point that few of them were even droped from the local team for peformance related reasons.

- We kept most of the experienced players who failed both locally and inernationally (in recent games) with the logic that they are experienced and talented and therefore they will click. We brought one 'puranu Papi' with the hope that he regained his form back and dropped atleast one youngster who was not even the bottom five 'non-performer'

- Now the warm-up matches. First one gone. All the ususal suspects failed again as usual. 2nd one still to be played.

Some fans stills hope against all odds.... ignoring the warning written in the wall for a long time now ....thats why they are fans I guess.

Selectors doesn't realize that you cannot improve a team by doing either:
a) Replaceing one non-performer with another.
b) Replacing one moderate performer with another moderate non-performer.

So what you do as a fan who sees the warnining written in the wall for a while now?
I guess just go to hibernation... prepare to survive for the long winter and hope for a good spring in the future when all the snow and the mess ( I mean Tiger Mama and his Bolods) are gone ...

You may be right. Mushi may come on 3rd down. However, 21/3 would be either less than six overs for sure. Which leaves 44+ overs. Not that much difference with 48+ overs.

Can someone buy some duck tape and donate it to Rafiqul Alam please.

Tigers_eye
June 3, 2008, 04:07 PM
If Mushi is any type of example then the selectors and fans need to take some heed from him.

National team off form. Went back to the Domestic cricket to get back the lost form. National team is not where one regains his form. One can not regain form in pressurised situation. Intl matches are most pressurised games one can play.

Let us see who is the other off form players.

1. Ashraful: Nope. He is just a nadan. He is never in off-form. Floating Eid boy!! Any time it may happen.
2. Zunaid: See Bashar.
3. Aftab: I have played well - type of players.
4. Bashar: I am doing great in the nets. Luck is not favoring me.
5. SN: Use to be off form against Big boys, now it seems Ashraful batic is catching me. Can't score even in local matches. What are you going to do about it? Punish me? Then you have to punish Ash first. :)

All five needs to play the entire 2008 domestic cricket. If that makes them skip the series against Aus, SA so be it. Let them understand their faults and limitations and play accordingly.

Since eighties, Rafiqul Alam is the guru of all the bolod batsmen in Bangladesh. As it's a tradition in Bangladesh, bolods call thier guru "Mama". Also, bolod cricketers of Bangladesh historically make the mistake of calling themselves "Tigers". Thus bolod shiramoni Rafiqul Alam is called "Tiger Mama".

Na bro, I actually meant both Dhiman and Mushy. Dhiman because he will become another scape goat. They will label him to be another Tushar or Alok. Say he comes back. Assuming they will put him in the lower order again, he will again produce a few low scores. Again the whole thing will come back that people want his head. Its just the beginning of a sad story if they don't take charge soon enough because they kicked him out with a very low average and not enough chances. Its a tough road ahead for him now....
... if he ever makes it back that is...

Ar ki ki excuse asey please share.

Players who can't bat in domestic league, averages 20+ in the intl matches, you expect them to put up scores of 40, 50+ consistantly (1 out of 2 or 3 matches)? They do not belong unless they fix their problems.

To fix a problem one must know they have a problem and what the problem is. Ash-Aftab do not fall in this category. They play their NATURAL game and showing others how to play their NATURAL game. Bad influences.
