Nice writing from Akram Khan the former Captain of Bangladesh Cricket team and a present National Selector. You would fee the inner feelings of a cricketer.

A very one sided article. Loaded with frustration for being deprived.

He has failed to understand the context.

Akram is one of the BD cricketers that I respect the most. To me, his innings against the Dutch(ICC Trophy) is the most important batting performance in the history of BD cricket. But if the prothom-alo article is true, I would say, he is not thinking professionally. As far as I understand, he wants to say that whatever be the situation, you can not complain against all the mis-management!

He is looking for the difference in standards of BD cricket between now and 20 years back. If he had asked himself the question, he could very easily identify where the problem lies. All those mis-management must bear the major responsibility. He should better talk against such mis-managements and the erroneous selection policy than expecting that the players should accept all those stupidities of the management and still 'perform' without complaining. This simply does not work!

Those days of 'playing for respect' do not exist any more (i doubt, if that actually existed even during Akram's time). All these players are professional cricketers, they depend solely on cricket for their living. You can not expect that they won't take the chance of getting rid of the comedy of selection and management. Everybody wants to play for the country. But not for the sake of being puppets to the BCB officials.

during Akram's time, he didn't have the opportunity to earn more bucks. Even if he wanted, what he could have done?
However, i have tremendous respect for Akram.

Deprived of?
Money

Is there any thing that I missed brother? And Antu: What's the context?

I think so. I don't think joining ICL has anything to do with his story of how good boys & dedicated/motivated they were in those time.

My grand fathar went to school wlaking 5 miles, would be tolerating rudeness of masters etc that doesn't mean that if my son goes to school by car to a 2 km distance & expects respectable behaviour from teachers etc are unfair. Are these compareable? He simply lived a different time.

I respect my grand Father & he is the best human being I have ever met in this world, not because of walking 5 miles to school, but for different reason. Similarly Akram is one of my alltime most favourite BD players not because of what he has written or sacrificed, but for his performance.

I don't buy that they never complained against anything & were all epitomes of nationalism & patriotism. They only didn't get an international publicity for understandable reasons. Beating, Abusing, Boycotting the umpires/refferees/officials, politics, partial sellection, criticisms etc culture didn't develop after Nazimuddin joined in BD team. We read a lots of stories in news papers about those, not in cricinfo though.

By the way, he has made all the complains, by saying that we have never complained. :)
Example: I have never complained in BC that the BC Editor is not coming to BC while our boys have lost a very close match and the BC members are all down. Tell me have I ever complaine it as his irresponsibility? :) Like the current generation fans, the players are much more bold and straight forward, they say things & act upon as it is the reality. I think that's a better culture. Like a todays Bc member would say "Miraz where are you? We are missing your input in the forum" :)

So basically, he has narrated a nice emotional/motivational side of him. I take that but can't take the criticism of DW players in ICL in that context.
