So, now here it is:

http://www.indiancricketleague.in/news/news-175.html

A glance at of some of the key Dhaka Warriors players to debut on the ICL platform (in alphabetical order):


Aftab Ahmed (All Rounder): A proven Under-19 performer for Bangladesh, Aftab’s prodigal talent saw him being drafted into the national Bangladesh side at the young age of 19yrs. It was Aftab who played an instrumental role in clinching Bangladesh’s biggest international victory over Australia in 2005. His sound batting technique & useful medium pacers will play a key role in the fortunes of the Dhaka Warriors at the forthcoming ICL Season 2.
Alok Kapali (All Rounder): A genuine all rounder, Alok has given a good account of both his bating & bowling skills at the international level. The 24 year old, Alok will be one of the key players adding depth & flexibility to the Warrior side.
Dhiman Ghosh (Wicket-keeper/Batsman): Dhiman is one of the upcoming talents to emerge from Bangladesh. Dhiman has given a good account of his batting talent right through his junior cricket days and has been an important member of Bangladesh’s future program teams.
Farhad Reza (All Rounder): A proven performer in the Bangladesh domestic structure earned Farhad a place in the Bangladesh national side in 2006. His cricket credentials are best exemplified by the fact that Farhad is the first Bangladeshi to score a 50 on debut.
Habib Ul Bashar (Right hand middle order Batsman): An exciting stroke maker “Sumon”, as know to his team mates, is a pleasant cricketing sight when in full flow. The former Bangladeshi captain brings with him the rich experience of having carried the batting expectations of the Bangladeshi national side on his able shoulders. His astute leadership qualities and batting prowess, will see Bashar as the fulcrum of the Dhaka Warriors batting lineup.
Manjural Islam (Left-arm fast Medium): Swing and pace are virtues possessed by this talented left arm pacer. Throughout his international stint, Manjural has come up with creditable performances for Bangladesh, especially in overseas helpful condition. Manjural will hold the key along with Tapash Baisya, as the new ball pair for the Dhaka Warriors.
Mabud Chowdhury (Wicket-keeper): Chowdhury comes from a family of first class cricketers & will play the under study role to Dhiman Ghosh in the Warriors line-up
Mahbubul Karim (Right-hand Batsman): The Chittagong based first class level batsman, Karim is one of the upcoming batsman from Bangladesh to showcase its talent on the ICL platform.
Mohammad Rafique (Left-arm spinner): An epitome of discipline & accuracy, Rafique has been the premier spinner for the Bangladesh national side. The first Bangladeshi cricketer to hold the distinction of scoring 1000runs & taking 100 test wickets, makes Rafique one of the cricketing powerhouses in the Warriors stable. His rich international exploits will see Rafique as the mainstay of the Warriors bowling line-up in the forthcoming ICL Season.
Mohammad Sharif (Right-arm pacer): The 6feet 5inch tall pacer, is a prodigal fast bowling talent, who made his international debut for Bangladesh at the young of 17years. Sharif is an expert exponent of reverser swing bowling and an useful over order, hard hitting batsman.
Mosharraf Hossain (Left-arm spinner): The young 23year old left-arm spinner has enjoyed decent success at the first class level of the game in Bangladesh. After the retirement of Mohammad Rafique, it has been Mosharraf who has played the role of a spinner it the Bangladesh national side.
Shahriar Nafis (Opening Batsman): The dashing south paw is one of the best cricket prodigies to emerge from Bangladesh in the recent history of the game. Shahriar has delivered creditable performance since his international debut at the young age of nineteen. Foreseen as an important member of the Warriors side; lot would depend on Shahriar’s opening guard, to give momentum to the Warrior batting in the forthcoming ICL tournaments.
Tapash Baisya (Right Arm pacer): Tapash is one of the best fast bowling talents to emerge in recent years from Bangladesh. The tall pacer with a slinging action can work up some decent pace to trouble the best of opposition batsmen. Tapash will be one key, the new ball bowlers in the Warriors bowling arsenal.

Looks good on paper, just a little bit weak on the phast bowling department. :)

Since it is T20, The spinners should do good.

But, this team is NOT balanced. They must need at least 2 more batsman there. Question is, which two?

One is Ashraful and the other is ____ ?

I wish Ash was in that team. However, I don't think they are short of a batsman.


Nazim

Aftab
HB
Mahbubul Karim
Alok

Dhiman

That is the batting lineup.

i simply dont undertand why are you guys cursing them? "Jebhabe gelo" mane ki??? ICL is not legal only because BCCI has said so. I mean Why cant BCCI stop the organiser from organising the tournament. If it is the right of the organisers to oragnise then it is the right of the Players to Join too.

I say we keep our national team space open for anybody given they perform at domestic First class cricket competition. Simple as That. England did not abn their players. Why would We???

ICL players are playing for English county without any problem. I think Bangladesh should follow their foot print instead of Indians. NZ, West Indies, England, Bangladesh can put pressure on BCCI. Out of 10 votes there is 4. South Africa and Australia or Pakistan Might follow as well.

Is BCB capable in diplomacy?

Tehsin
September 16, 2008, 09:26 AM
Mafiz, I already put the blame on BCCI in another thread. The ONLY reason this is an issue is because BCCI is too greedy and did not want to share the cricket wealth with anyone. If BCB has the kahones, they'd follow ECB on this issue.

Jebhabe gelo maney jebhabe gelo. Quit from the national team to join the (at the moment) rebel league. i personaly want our players to make the money and perform well as THEY ARE REPRESENTING BD in ICL. However, a lot of people ARE upset.

And regarding Players WellFare aSSOCIATION OF BANGLADESH Claim that the players should have consulted them.

I am sorry How could they? When the President of CWAB head naimur Rahman Durjoy is the member of the selection Panel. I am not sure how can he hold both position at the same time. There is a clear conflict of interest.

And this is how we pay?

ICL, I believe was the idea of the owner of Zeetv. When BCCI found out about this idea, they could not stand the fact that someone beat them to it and someone was going to get a cut from their cricket monopoly. The greedy [bleeps!] flexed their muscles and used their new found $$$$-might to declare ICL as a rebel league and hastily arranged the IPL league. There is NO legit reason for ICl to be a rebel league.

People are upset. Cause they are emotional. And secondly the way number of newspapers reported this incident. Calling the players unpatriotic and greedy and other names. They started their article targeting the mind of the reader, which is clearly unacceptable to me.

Instead of taking a pragmatic and realistic approach to this both BCB and Newspapers( now joined by CWAB) is trying emotional blackmail.

its funny that a nation who talkes about their fight for independece and takes big pride in it, cant accept Player's independence to join.

if Players have given their resignation thinking that BCB has no guts to stand agaisnt BCCI, on that they are right on the money.

I would have supported them even if they were playing palying for different teams.

out of all these mess and farce, the only outcome is Our brittle top order and opening slots are severly affected.

Great observation and I wholeheartedly agree with your comments. In other major sports players from any league are free to play internationally. The BCCI mandate of outlawing ICL players from participating in international games doesn't make sense.

Aftab Alok SN and nazimuddin. whom are we going to replace these players with, if BCB is going to BAN them. Instead of letting them retire BCB is going to BAN them. and that is really silly. But I dont except much anyways.

I say call Nafis Iqbal, Tushar Imaran. We dont have nobody to replace 4 players or Three. I dont want to see new face in the national team. not at all.

lol. It would have been funny if Ash and Tamim joined the team too. In that Case BCB would not have any other option but to accept this decision. I think this might have been their first idea but you know as always there are somepeople who will bail out at the last moment.

Nobody is upset that they are gone.

I'm very happy that they are gone.

Selectors were having very hard time in making selections. Now their job became much easier. All these players are totally out of form. Now they can try other players who are much better than these craps.

Junaid is there to Replace SN. Now JS will get more chances and will eventually get better with his batting.

Nazim wasn't any good that he needs a replacement. He was out of the team anyway. Any player can replace him.

Alok? What's Nayeem doing there? Nayeem is atleast 80 times better than Alok.

Only player who is still not replaceable is Aftab Ahmed. But they will manage.

So over-all I'm very happy to see them going. We will see a new team. We will see better results. Because of these losers, many good players are not getting the opportunities to perform for the National team.

And why do you think BCB will give their TEST STATUS away so easily? If they go against the BCCI, then within the next 2/3 weeks we will see that we are out of the Test rankings. You will be happy then? I guess yes, based on your comments.

To be frank, the way the players approached for the ICL is shocking to me. I like what Aftab did (didn't like him to join there though). He didn't try to give any un-necessary reason to justify his works.

If you have to go for money then have the heart to say it loudly. SN and most of his colleagues are greedy morons who are trying blame others for not granting them a permanent place for each in the national team even though they don't perform. And it seems they don't want to perform.

And this is whre the structure of our cricket comes out. Players were far from the officials. Officials are weak. And CWAB who could have been a middle ground is already a sell out to the official by having the national team selector as their president.

I disagree with you on this one completely tehsin Bhai. Every single Idea and every single Dissent is worth fighing for. And specailly BCCI over arching hand. It was justified to fight against the English and Aussie hegemony and it is now justified to fight against the Indians. Our people are becoming and more of a "MUSHIK", bloody scared of everybody. Where is the right for self determination has gone?

Now if BCB bans them or takes them to court, I will forever know what a chicken Mr. Jamali and Mr. Lipu are. I would say Mr. jamali should take retirement from bangladesh army. Heck with such army officer who doesnot have guts to stand up.

lol. I am an ever optimistic person. But If they cant set an example on how to fight, team wont be able to show how to fight either. Where the inspiraiton will come from.

I am afraid that BCB might want to take steps to make examples out of these players so that no future player will follow these players.

And that would be silly, idiotic steps lack of any real vision only discouraging players from play.

If these players had enough money playing at domestic, if they had assurity that playing domestic cricket they will be able to earn a decent enough livlihood, they would have think twice. If domestic cricket payed enough or comepetitively enough of international cricket, we would have seen players playing for Pride to get into international team, not for Money and Pride both.

Labour laws in england wouldn't allow such players to be banned, it would be a restraint of trade. The impact of the ICL players has not yet been tested in England. It's interesting to note that those that did play in the ICL (Read, Soalnki, maddy and nixon) have not been selected for England since and are unlikely to be so in future.

Also when nixon, Read and solanki 1st signed up, the ECB policy was unclear. once the ECB clarified that participants of the ICL would seriously hamper their England chances only Nixon signed up for a second stint...

</td> </tr> </tbody></table></td> </tr> <tr> <td align="center">http://img.cricinfo.com/story/sidebar/img_btmCurves.gif</td> </tr> </tbody></table> Thirteen players from Bangladesh will make up the Dhaka Warriors, the new team announced for the second season of Indian Cricket League (ICL) which commences on October 10. The side will be led by Habibul Bashar, the former Bangladesh captain, and includes recent internationals Aftab Ahmed, Alok Kapali, Shahriar Nafees, Farhad Reza, Dhiman Ghosh and Mosharraf Hossain.
The team will be coached by Balwinder Singh Sandhu, the former India player. The ICL's latest signings include four players who have represented Bangladesh in the past - retired left-arm spinner Mohammad Rafique, Tapash Baisya, Manjarul Islam and Mohammad Sharif, as well as Golam Mabud and Mahbubul Karim, who were part of the Bangladesh Academy team currently touring Sri Lanka.
The exodus of Aftab, Kapali and Nafees will severely dent the national team's batting, while Dhiman Ghosh had been their first-choice wicketkeeper during the ODI series in Australia. Farhad Reza had played 32 one-dayers since his debut in July 2006 and left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain featured in the home ODIs against South Africa earlier in the year.
The ICL have also signed perhaps two of Bangladesh's most experienced players in Bashar and Rafique. Bashar is Bangladesh's most-capped Test player with 50 matches. He led the team in 18 of those, including the country's only Test win (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/64121.html) over Zimbabwe in 2005 and in the 2007 World Cup, where they scored upset wins over India and South Africa. For long the mainstay of Bangladesh's batting, Bashar had fallen out of favour in the past year, and was disappointed with the lack of support he got, especially from current coach Jamie Siddons.

I wonder, is there under the table deal between Ashrafool and some members of the BCB?

Tehsin vai,
they would be super flop. No money can buy run when you did not have cricketing brain. I do not know about other but Aftab. Aftab is from my school and what I heard he had difficulty doing simple math. So cricket was only option to earn good money. He could not do it for Mohammedan, Bangladesh. So how you could believe he could do it for Dhaka Cowards. Same goes for most of them bar Rafiq.

thebest vai, it will be a good exercise to find out who in the Bd team can do maths. i remember of a certain events in 99 WC where bulbul failed to do his sums and ended up giving 8/9 overs to his best bowler. i think ashraful/rafiq will struggle to count as well. on the other hand, you cant include mathematicians in ur team , can you? :)

There aint any precedent of loosing test status. If that was the case Zimbabwe should have lost it long time ago. For as long as you will continue to think that Our test status is on the mercy of Indians, you will continue to undermine the love of cricket that our people have shown and they will continue to ride on you for their own selfish agendas.

I say we keep our national team space open for anybody given they perform at domestic First class cricket competition. Simple as That. England did not abn their players. Why would We???

Labour laws in england wouldn't allow such players to be banned, it would be a restraint of trade. The impact of the ICL players has not yet been tested in England. It's interesting to note that those that did play in the ICL (Read, Soalnki, maddy and nixon) have not been selected for England since and are unlikely to be so in future.

Also when nixon, Read and solanki 1st signed up, the ECB policy was unclear. once the ECB clarified that participants of the ICL would seriously hamper their England chances only Nixon signed up for a second stint...


England is still allowing foreing ICL players to play in county. Example: Mohammad Sami

These losers never played good cricket continuously. They don't know how to do it. This is proven that SN cannot take pressure of big game. Once upon a time Bashar used to cope with the pressure. But not these days. And finally he is not a T20 material at all. Same goes true for the rest of the players except Aftab. I am sure they would loose all the games in a row. No chance......

"A profile of Dhaka Warriors (DW)
16th September, 2008

The Dhaka Warriors are the 9th ICL side representing an important cricket center (Bangladesh) of the subcontinent. The arrival of a Bangladesh based team (9th ICL team) makes the Indian Cricket League the largest & most comprehensive cricket league operating from India. The induction of the Warriors on the ICL platform introduces a distinct international flavor to the cricket on display at the ICL. The pioneering induction of the Pakistani side Lahore Badshahs was met with unmatched success at the preceding ICL tournament and a similar cascading effect is expected with the arrival of the Dhaka Warriors, thrusting the concept of league cricket in India a long way forward.

The Warrior side is built on the ICL philosophy of combining experienced international cricketers with quality upcoming players to produce a fundamentally strong cricket side. Led by Habib ul Bashar (one of best cricketing talents to have emerged from Bangladesh) & coached by Balwinder Singh Sandhu; Warriors’ possess a rich arsenal of attacking batsmen, crafty bowlers and energetic fielders; combining to form a formidable cricket team.

A glance at of some of the key Dhaka Warriors players to debut on the ICL platform (in alphabetical order):

*

Aftab Ahmed (All Rounder): A proven Under-19 performer for Bangladesh, Aftab’s prodigal talent saw him being drafted into the national Bangladesh side at the young age of 19yrs. It was Aftab who played an instrumental role in clinching Bangladesh’s biggest international victory over Australia in 2005. His sound batting technique & useful medium pacers will play a key role in the fortunes of the Dhaka Warriors at the forthcoming ICL Season 2.
*

Alok Kapali (All Rounder): A genuine all rounder, Alok has given a good account of both his bating & bowling skills at the international level. The 24 year old, Alok will be one of the key players adding depth & flexibility to the Warrior side.
*

Dhiman Ghosh (Wicket-keeper/Batsman): Dhiman is one of the upcoming talents to emerge from Bangladesh. Dhiman has given a good account of his batting talent right through his junior cricket days and has been an important member of Bangladesh’s future program teams.
*

Farhad Reza (All Rounder): A proven performer in the Bangladesh domestic structure earned Farhad a place in the Bangladesh national side in 2006. His cricket credentials are best exemplified by the fact that Farhad is the first Bangladeshi to score a 50 on debut.
*

Habib Ul Bashar (Right hand middle order Batsman): An exciting stroke maker “Sumon”, as know to his team mates, is a pleasant cricketing sight when in full flow. The former Bangladeshi captain brings with him the rich experience of having carried the batting expectations of the Bangladeshi national side on his able shoulders. His astute leadership qualities and batting prowess, will see Bashar as the fulcrum of the Dhaka Warriors batting lineup.
*

Manjural Islam (Left-arm fast Medium): Swing and pace are virtues possessed by this talented left arm pacer. Throughout his international stint, Manjural has come up with creditable performances for Bangladesh, especially in overseas helpful condition. Manjural will hold the key along with Tapash Baisya, as the new ball pair for the Dhaka Warriors.
*

Mabud Chowdhury (Wicket-keeper): Chowdhury comes from a family of first class cricketers & will play the under study role to Dhiman Ghosh in the Warriors line-up
*

Mahbubul Karim (Right-hand Batsman): The Chittagong based first class level batsman, Karim is one of the upcoming batsman from Bangladesh to showcase its talent on the ICL platform.
*

Mohammad Rafique (Left-arm spinner): An epitome of discipline & accuracy, Rafique has been the premier spinner for the Bangladesh national side. The first Bangladeshi cricketer to hold the distinction of scoring 1000runs & taking 100 test wickets, makes Rafique one of the cricketing powerhouses in the Warriors stable. His rich international exploits will see Rafique as the mainstay of the Warriors bowling line-up in the forthcoming ICL Season.
*

Mohammad Sharif (Right-arm pacer): The 6feet 5inch tall pacer, is a prodigal fast bowling talent, who made his international debut for Bangladesh at the young of 17years. Sharif is an expert exponent of reverser swing bowling and an useful over order, hard hitting batsman.
*

Mosharraf Hossain (Left-arm spinner): The young 23year old left-arm spinner has enjoyed decent success at the first class level of the game in Bangladesh. After the retirement of Mohammad Rafique, it has been Mosharraf who has played the role of a spinner it the Bangladesh national side.
*

Shahriar Nafis (Opening Batsman): The dashing south paw is one of the best cricket prodigies to emerge from Bangladesh in the recent history of the game. Shahriar has delivered creditable performance since his international debut at the young age of nineteen. Foreseen as an important member of the Warriors side; lot would depend on Shahriar’s opening guard, to give momentum to the Warrior batting in the forthcoming ICL tournaments.
*

Tapash Baisya (Right Arm pacer): Tapash is one of the best fast bowling talents to emerge in recent years from Bangladesh. The tall pacer with a slinging action can work up some decent pace to trouble the best of opposition batsmen. Tapash will be one key, the new ball bowlers in the Warriors bowling arsenal."

Habla playing 20/20 is like Whoopy Goldberg contesting in a beauty pageant ( not calling her ugly..but u know what I mean ). If this ICL has any credibility, they will soon realize what a mistake they have made by making him the captain, and if they are professional enough, hopefully they will drop him from the team after a few games. What will Habla do then? Throw a hissy fit that they mistreated him? I can't wait till this circus begins on Oct.10.

20 ball 10 runs in the cards. Then, "My luck is not favoring. I am in good form. It is just I don't know, can't tell what is going on. I am doing good at the nets." Fielding, lol, experienced campaigner. Bowling I'd leave it up to the esteemed members here.

Captaincy: well, "Do not judge my captaincy with my performance with the bat."

absolutely correct analysis

I'm very happy that they are gone.

Selectors were having very hard time in making selections. Now their job became much easier. All these players are totally out of form. Now they can try other players who are much better than these craps.

Junaid is there to Replace SN. Now JS will get more chances and will eventually get better with his batting.

Nazim wasn't any good that he needs a replacement. He was out of the team anyway. Any player can replace him.

Alok? What's Nayeem doing there? Nayeem is atleast 80 times better than Alok.

Only player who is still not replaceable is Aftab Ahmed. But they will manage.

So over-all I'm very happy to see them going. We will see a new team. We will see better results. Because of these losers, many good players are not getting the opportunities to perform for the National team.[/QUOTE]

It makes sense for the older players (i.e. Bashar) to join ICL. It absolutely makes no sense for an young national player to make this mistake. One of the two will definitely happen:

ICL will vanish in few years or

None of the players gave up their country. They were making the same amount of money in Bangladesh as well. And besides,, As per the ICL contract which says they can still play for the country and leave anytime they wanted to.

If a league is not approved by Indian Board and someone plays in it is to be a national traitor? players of Jason Gillespie, Shane Bond, Abdul Razzaque, Imran Farhat, full of traitors or is it just Bangladeshi players are being called traitors?

My feeling is same about Haba. I blame him most since he's the captain of DW. One can not be a captain of such a rebel team without a prior hand in the team pick. If he was a good person and he wanted good for Bangladesh national cricket, he would have lend his hand to BCB to resolve the issue. He did not because he thought he was dropped from team illegally and whining about it in the media ever since he was dropped.
-----------
From earning money perspective, I do not blame any of the players. They have the freedom to do whatever they want with their lives/career. I would not even question their patriotism. If patriotism is in question, I, along with other expatriates, should be termed as unpatriotic as well!! ;)
But what shocks me is their pathetic attempt to refute they were dropped from national team for no reasons. some, especially these Haba and SN, shameless spineless creatures!

Only Aftab can be classed as a 20/20 player, the rest are hopeless and will be failures.

Bashar is the one who has done thisn damage to BCB, he has gotten back at them for dropping him.

He is the one who instilled doubts in these players mind.

England is still allowing foreing ICL players to play in county. Example: Mohammad Sami

That's right, because not doing so would be a restraint of trade.

My point is english-qualified players are avoiding the ICL now because they know their chances of playing for England (not for their counties) would be seriously eroded. Playing for your county is earning a living, playing for your country is a privilege...

[QUOTE=Tehsin;735046]Mafiz, I already put the blame on BCCI in another thread. The ONLY reason this is an issue is because BCCI is too greedy and did not want to share the cricket wealth with anyone. If BCB has the kahones, they'd follow ECB on this issue.

I dont think BCB Would do that now,but if these rebel cricketers can perform well in ICL, then that will put pressure on BCB to be more organised,Credible.Also then BCB might put pressure on ICC,and ICL might then be after other boards,who knows we might soon have two cricketing Leages.

I agree with u in most part,u might be right about Haba but SN and a few others i dont agree completely,SN have been inconsistent,but then so is Ash,he got more chance than anybody else,this might also be one of the reason to fuel their decision,the selectors talked about taking players based on the performance of last Domestic season.but nothing happened.SN got a hundred there,Ash didnt do anything.Pilot performed well and a few others.but the selection was the same.this might have made the these cricketers insecure and to take such decision.I dont support their decision because there could have been other methods to resolve it.but i wont consider them traitors.
