IMO, Mash and Rubel shouldn't play T20s. Both are crappy bowlers in this format.

Aftab should get the chance over Raqibul in T20's..no doubt about it..if this is the case aftab really has to perform well if he wants to be considered in the T20's..if he takes the oppurtunity with both hands then he has a good shot of being in the starting 11 for ODIs..but if he flops then he'll get crtiicized by his critics like me..hes an explosive and very talented batsman but he's got 2 deliver some consistency if he wants to become a regular..

Mashrafe Mortaza's departure for New Zealand has been delayed owing to a bout of fever. He was due to leave Dhaka this evening along with team-mates Shahadat Hossain, Mahmudullah and Aftab Ahmed to link up with the limited-overs squad.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board did not confirm when Mortaza, who was recalled to the Bangladesh limited-overs squad after a seven-month lay-off, would depart.

Mortaza underwent knee surgery after the tour of the West Indies last year and was forced to miss the home Tests against India and the tri-series, also featuring Sri Lanka. He was officially named captain before the team departed for the West Indies but since the first Test of that tour, when he suffered the injury, Shakib Al Hasan has led the team in his absence.

The tour begins on February 3 with a one-off Twenty20, followed by three ODIs.

The 34-year-old's performances in the HRV Cup made it appear impossible to leave him out. Styris has scored 274 runs at a strike rate of close to 123.
To put that in context, he has batted at better than a run-a-ball in every single match, except when he got four runs off five balls in the final round 'eliminator over' loss to Otago.
He has also taken 12 wickets at an average of 23.66, conceding 7.28 runs per over. Daniel Vettori gave away 7.24 runs an over.
In fact, Styris is second to Vettori in the overall MVP rankings for the tournament, which suggests he is pulling his weight.
He is also a proven match-winner. Surely all of that should mean the ink of 'SB Styris' should be drying on the team sheet?
One argument for his omission is a lack of form on the recent tour to the United Arab Emirates to play Pakistan.
But it wasn't as though Styris was alone and his resurgence in the domestic scorebooks this month is undoubtedly worthy of a reprieve.

<IFRAME name=INVadSpace0 frameBorder=0 width=0 onload="javascript:try { document.getElementById('adSpace0').insertAdjacent Element('beforeEnd', window.frames['INVadSpace0'].document.getElementById('adDiv')) } catch(aamErr) { }" height=0></IFRAME>
Another justification is that it gives more inexperienced players an opportunity to get international game time against Bangladesh. Rest and rotation, if you will.
If that were the case, there would be strong arguments to let the likes of Brendon McCullum and Jacob Oram put their feet up as well.
The fact Styris has pulled out of test match cricket is thought to count against him. It hasn't helped that word has got back that he's allegedly telling players at national age group level not to worry about playing first-class cricket in the future because Twenty20 is "where the money's at".
However, his omission also brought criticism about him when the Herald on Sunday went asking.
Styris was offered the chance to respond to his omission and the resulting feedback but politely, and perhaps understandably, declined.
A number of well-known cricketers took minimum coaxing to comment on Styris as long as their names were not used.
Interviews always started with the open question: why has Scott Styris been left out of the Black Caps?
"Scotty kicked a lot of people on the way up, now he's getting kicked by a lot of people on the way down," one said. "He can be a bit of a bully boy with his pranks to try to fit in.

That makes no sense at all. Players dont get selected just because they are a good fielder. Everyone is expected to field good batsmen or bowler. Or is fielding specialized by certain people in the team?

ANyway, He dropped several catches and didnt score at all in the last series.
the only way he contributed in the entire series was getting the wicket of dhoni.

I don't think its about form, I think it's about his weakness against rising deliveries from back of the length. I highly doubt he will find pitches in NZ anymore favorable than pitches in Bangladesh were.

Raqibul seems have turned out to be one of the many Bangladeshi batsmen who looked good in their initial period until opposition bowlers found out a big hole in their defense (a la Hannan Sarkar or Shahriar Nafees). I still hope Rock will overcome his weakness soon.

NZ's main pacer would be Chris Martin, but the quickest should be Tim Southee. When Bond/O'Brien was playing against Pak, I was wondering what will happen to our poor little batters when they face these guys.
Quite relieved to hear that Bond/O'Brien aren't playing.
PS: The way O'Brien played with an injured hip/hamstring against pak, and got 5fer...truly amazing.

Raqibul is totally useless in T20 and ODIs as I have always said. He cant even rotate strike in ODIs and put pressure on his partners.

His only use can be in tests to eat up deliveries when the opposition bowlers are on top. But now it seems like he is even failing in that.

Although his recent form has been disappointing, I think rokibul has a role to play in ODIs. He can rotate the strike well and is good at pacing his innings. However, obviously if he is out of form, then others should be given a chance, whether that be aftab or whoever.

What I don't understand is his inclusion in tests. It sounds like a good idea, get in a patient consolidating batsman to play a rajin saleh-like anchor role (though hopefully with more success). But I think he has played 7 tests, averages something like 20 and has a top score of 65. That's hardly the stuff of a consolidator.

He looked inept in the tests against India and I'd be sorely tempted to replace him with aftab/naeem or even rajin.

As for aftab, I think siddons said earlier that he could not see both aftab and ash playing in the same XI. If ash performs badly enough, I can see aftab coming in to replace him on the NZ tour...

February 1, 2010, 11:31 AM
Aftab should definitely be given a chane in T20. He can add 20/30 runs very quickly. Roqibul is definitely not a T20 material. He is even strugging in Tests. Imrul is not a test player at all but he may do well in T20 or ODI. I would pick Zunaid over Roqibul or Imrul in T20.

Where is Shuruwardi Shuvo? Are we to say that we have total confident on Razzak? What if Razzak does not do well? Can Skakib alone do the spinning job?

bro, maybe we are watching different raqibuls then. the raqibul i saw so far cant rotate the strike, cant play with soft hands, i always wonder what this guy is doing in the middle. in T20 he is even worse, I remember him against india in T20 WC, frankly he was an embarrassment.



As for aftab, I think siddons said earlier that he could not see both aftab and ash playing in the same XI. If ash performs badly enough, I can see aftab coming in to replace him on the NZ tour...

I cant believe Roqibul was retained in the squad for NZ tour. Hope he will not be in the playing 11 for T20 and ODIs. Aftab should get a fair amount of opportunity in place of Roqibul.

you bro you see everybody understand that roqibul shouldnt be in the team but i dont know what the hell is wrong with this selectors and coach . imrul mad his worst opening batsman in the history and roqibul cant even rotate a strike how come they are in the team . i cant still beleave they choose roqibul and imrul again for newzeland tour

In any case Roqibul shouldnt be playing T20...i am not sure if Aftab will do well on his first match back, he is bound to have some nerve.. Either ways he should play the game and Roq should stay out. I am not sure about Imrul either, i would open Aftab instead for T20 to get those runs before the fielding restrictions are lifted.

I strongly disagree mate. Raqibul has a very very good FC career to back him up, and unless he is given enough opportunities, you can't write him off. One of the main reasons why BD cricket is behind where it should be is because our selectors always played musical chair with players, changing a player after 2-3 games etc.
In order to ensure a successful team, players must be given enough chances. Remember marvan Attapattu? He scored 4 runs in his first 7 innings. Yet selectors backed him up and see where he ended up.

I agree with you 100% beshideshi..name me some players that have a better FC record and List A record then Raqibul..Yes I agree the guy is no good for T20's and should not be considered for T20s but for ODIs and tests, this guy will be our key to becoming better..people seem to forget how important of a player he was for us against the WI in the 2nd test..and don't tell me that was because it was WI Z team..Kemar Roach is now their number 1 pace bowler out of all their players..and Raqibul played him pretty well..he's just going through a bad patch right now just like every player..and people here make aftab an adam gilchrist..the guy averages lower then Raqibul in pretty much everything..who cares if he has a better SR then everyone? We have plenty of players who have good SRs on this team..we need a stabilizer in our team and Raqibul is that guy..

the same was said for rajin saleh. remember how good he played Shoaib akhter in the pak tour.

well my opinion for rakibul, no he isn't the next atapattu.

atapattu played his first test in 1990, had a pair and was dropped. played his 2nd test in 1992 scored a duck and 1 and was dropped again. then back in 1194 in his third tes again a pair.

that was 1 runs in 6 innings played over 4-5 years of time. and then he was called back again at 1997 after that he was flourished. but for roqibul he still has not been dropped once. he has play 7 consecutive tests and 14 innings for one 50 though it was a match winning innings. sri lanka did not stick with him continuously. they dropped him and recalled him after long periods.

in ODI's yes he has good performance so far. but i now feel with mushfik, naeem and riyadh there one of them can easily come up the order and do the stabilizing job. then we can drop roqibul and play an extra bowler.

Of course Raqibul is no Attapatu, if Raqib can be half as good as Attapatu that would be great for us. He has a 313* in FC, I don't think any other Bangladeshi batsman have the temperament to play such an innings.If he is thrown out now, it will hurt him. It is very important to show trust in a player when things are not going so well for him.
As for Rajin, he was one of the finest batsmen of the Bashar era, he had good technique with an average of 26[test] 24 ODI[more than decent for a BD batsman], was an excellent fielder, and his off spinners were handy too. We have already [almost] lost Rajin, lets not give Raqib the same treatment

raqibul has played 14 test innings so he's played a few. ashraful has a good NCL FC record and he's played over 50 tests but still averages under 25. not every player who performs domestically can translate those performances to the international level. unfortunately for raqibul there are players in the team batting further down who have performed and deserve a promotion and there is also a player (naeem) outside of the starting XI who has put his name up to take one of those middle order spots. that's why ash and raqibul's spots are more vulnerable than say imrul, imrul doesn't have much competition at this point because almost everyone has been tried and failed so the selectors probably feel they're not losing anything by continuing with him for a bit longer.

regardless of the raqibul debate when it comes to test cricket or ODI cricket, he shouldn't be playing T20 cricket so for this match his exclusion should be mandatory.

except for that 313 he only has one other century. if u look at the records of naeem, riyadh or mehrab junior, they have 4-5 centuries in almost the same matches, may be 10-15 more matches. so i think roqibul should have scored more hundreds as he is labeled our long version cricketer.

may be he his out of confidence or form. so drop him and let him regain his form or confidence from FC matches.

and why should he be hurt if he is dropped. if he really has the temperament, then he would fight back and regain his place back.

Brendon McCullum and the rest of the New Zealand batting will fancy their chances against Bangladesh, but should guard against complacency © Associated Press

News : Greatbatch makes batting his top priority
News : Greatbatch steps into New Zealand coaching role

Players/Officials: Brendon McCullum | Shakib Al Hasan
Series/Tournaments: Bangladesh tour of New Zealand
Teams: Bangladesh | New Zealand



Big Picture


Bangladesh begin their tour of New Zealand with a Twenty20 fixture in Hamilton and, despite the gulf between their respective standings in the pecking order of the game, both sides will look forward to the face-off as an opportunity to settle nerves and fire a strong opening salvo.

It can be argued that Shakib al Hasan's young Bangladesh side is cut out for the Twenty20 format. In the recent Tests against India there were passages of play where their batsmen combined premeditated aggression with caution, often several times in the same over. The newest format of the game, however, gives them the license to not have to shoulder arms, and to throw the kitchen sink at everything - something that their cavalier batting line-up will fancy. Add the attraction of a smaller ground and the absence of Shane Bond, and Bangladesh emerge as serious contenders for the solitary Twenty20 fixture at Seddon Park.

Even as the higher-ranked teams struggled to come to grips with the format, Bangladesh got off to a strong start in Twenty20s, winning three of their first four matches, including one against West Indies in the inaugural World Cup. Reality has caught up with them since, and the next nine matches ended in defeat.

The hosts have their own problems to address, and will hope that Mark Greatbatch's appointment as coach will end a tumultuous period that began with Andy Moles' resignation in October. One of the biggest problems New Zealand have faced in recent times, albeit in the longer formats, is their misfiring top-order. Greatbatch has already identified it as a priority area and will hope his batsmen use this platform to ease back into form.

Form guide (Most recent first)


New Zealand: LLWWL
Bangladesh: LLLLL

Watch out for…


Brendom McCullum will have fond memories of the only previous Twenty20 match at Seddon Park, when he caned the West Indies bowlers to set up an easy win. He will have equally fond memories of batting against Bangladesh, in particular his brutal, unbeaten 80 in a Queenstown ODI that ended in quick time. The Bangladesh attack, sans Mashrafe Mortaza, will need some well-thought plans for the elder McCullum.

Bangladesh may not have found a pace bowler of Mortaza's quality but in Shakib al Hasan they have a strong stand-in for the captaincy. While his batting was a let-down in the Tests against India, he was more than a handful with the ball. In the past, he has opened the bowling for Bangladesh in the shortest format and his searching lines and lack of pace could set up an intriguing duel against McCullum and co.

Team news


The hosts are expected to exclude Gareth Hopkins from the twelve, leaving Brendon McCullum to handle duties behind the stumps in addition to opening the innings. He is most likely to be accompanied at the top by Peter Ingram, who is set to debut at the age of 31.

New Zealand (probable): 1. Brendon McCullum (wk), 2. Peter Ingram, 3. Martin Guptill, 4. Ross Taylor, 5. Jacob Oram, 6. Daniel Vettori (capt), 7. Nathan McCullum, 8. James Franklin, 9. Ian Butler, 10. Daryl Tuffey, 11. Tim Southee.

Bangladesh announced their side a day early, leaving out Imrul Kayes and Junaid Siddique. Aftab Ahmed comes back into the picture, and could share opening duties with the in-form Tamim Iqbal. The promotion to Mohammad Ashraful and the lower-order firm of Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim, augurs well for the visitors.

Bangladesh (probable): 1. Tamim Iqbal, 2. Mohammad Ashraful, 3. Aftab Ahmed, 4. Raqibul Hasan, 5. Shakib al Hasan (capt), 6. Naeem Islam, 7. Mahmudullah, 8. Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 9. Shahadat Hossain, 10. Shafiul Islam, 11. Nazmul Hossain.

Pitch and conditions


Expect a pitch full of runs, and nippy conditions that could see the ball moving around. Though there is almost no chance of rain, the forecast is for cloudy skies, with the temperature hovering around 20C.

Stats and trivia




Bangladesh have lost their last nine Twenty20 matches.
With 813 runs in 30 innings, Brendon McCullum is the most prolific batsman in Twenty20 internationals, 171 runs clear of Graeme Smith. Ross Taylor is 11th in the list.
Daniel Vettori's 27 wickets puts him at third in the wicket-takers list, behind Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi.

Quotes

"Bangladesh are playing some good cricket and if we go out there and are complacent it will show in our performances."
Ross Taylor is not taking Bangladesh lightly.


""From my point of view, I expect us to win the one-day series, and win the Test match if we play well, without a doubt."
Jamie Siddons expects nothing short of the best from the Bangladesh team.

I strongly disagree mate. Raqibul has a very very good FC career to back him up, and unless he is given enough opportunities, you can't write him off. One of the main reasons why BD cricket is behind where it should be is because our selectors always played musical chair with players, changing a player after 2-3 games etc.
In order to ensure a successful team, players must be given enough chances. Remember marvan Attapattu? He scored 4 runs in his first 7 innings. Yet selectors backed him up and see where he ended up.

I disagree with that, We all know how good our domestic structure is, The pitches there hardly offer any bounce it's always a batting pitch, None of the batsmen gets tried on top of that we don't have any overseas bowlers to try our batsmen out. Anyone who makes 100's in domestic isn't worth anything, I would love to see Raqibul make his 200's 300's in a aussie or english domestic enviroment, Then i would say that he got those hundreds.The main thing is Raqibul is a flop in international arena.
Why doesn't he make his hundreds there? Because the guy is just useless. He occupies one of the most important spot in the middle, He can't even rotate strikes, Neither he hits the bad ball for boundry, He looks uncomftable when he comes to bat. Guy just nudges and blokes, Even that he does it in such a way that he can't take singles. He puts pressure on the rest. But most important of all is that the guy doesn't know where his offstump is, He got out most times trying to defend a ball while his offstumps goes flying.
You call that international player?

Even though Rok got chosen I will be surprised if he makes to T20 squad. Not sure on what basis he was chosen...it seems every time selection process has one or two flaw...I wonder why BCB keeps this type flaws in every time in selection process...I guess they like to create controversy all the time...nobody will know what goes in their heads...they seem to be think different from most of us...

NZ got some powerhouse scintillating batsmen who will go after our bowlers despite who is chosen. On the other hand few of their pacers will cause trouble for few of our batsmen who are not playing in pace friendly pitches for a while in that environment. But as T20 is game of uncertainity, I would hope our players will put their best to get something out of it.

if Aftab or Naeem opens with Tamim and can linger for 5 to 10 overs that will be key to BD innings on the other hand if history repeats itself we have a huge chance that we will score 50 runs in 7 overs by loosing quick three wickets ending up scoring 180 range at the end.

I know everyone's angry :mad: about the news of roqibul in the t20 squad :timeout: but u don't know he might show an agressive side tommorow ;)
I mean if a player know's his weakness he will try to improve on it- in this case roqibals low strike rate
I really think roqibul will shine tommorow :-D
If Tamim, Aftab and Ash clicks, we might NOT need Rak to bat at all! Rather I think we are short of a bowler. Again, I might be wrong.

Anyway, just looking for win the only T20, ODI series and the only Test. Nothing else will serve my stomach. ;)

Its unlikely but not unreasonable.

What about the T20? Does he not care? Does he not realize there is a world cup in 4 months.

I hope Bangladesh doesn't get all out for 90 this time. They caused Mcculum his century, was only 20 short runs, hope Bangladesh atleast makes 128 so that Brendon gets his century this time. Will be a short match, match will be over i say in 11 overs. The match was over in the 6th last time lol. Even Shakib will get hammered. My prediction:
Bangladesh bat frist 128 all out. NZ 129/0 IN 11 overs.
NZ bat first NZ 247/2. Bangladesh 79 all out.
We are rubbish in this form even losing to Ireland and a 3rd string West Indian team.

Ah damn. I was thinking of waking up at 5:30 am to watch the match, now it seems theres no point.. dhurr! Having said that 128 is a good score... i dnt think we will go beyond 100. Bangladesh has no game play for 20/20.. throwing the kitchen sink to everything won't get them anywhere.

Here is wishing BD all the best in their first match.
If they bat first and make less than 150 runs, they will be beaten. If NZ bats first and restricted to less than 165 runs, then BD has a chance to chase. It all depends on the batsmen. I am betting on Sakib, this is his kind of cricket.Anyhow, whatever the outcome, hope they play good cricket, hoping for the best when I awake in the morning.

sorry i dont know what is actuaally shakib's kinda cricket specially recently. he was a good timer through the off side finding the gaps intially when he started to play for national time. recently he is simply a cross bat slogger like tail-enders.

i know ashraful and aftab were guilty of playing strokes. but they trid some strokes. what shakib tries these days are not strokes. they are slogs.

test and ODI--few changes ok
20/20, we need diff set of players with diff mind game.

Cricinfo:

Hello and welcome to Seddon Park in Hamilton for the only T20I between New Zealand and Bangladesh.
Shakib has called correctly and Bangladesh will bat first on what looks to be a good cricket wicket. The weather is fine and the temperature is about 24 degrees.
Thanks for joining us for live coverage of the match, I am Marc Ellison and look forward to bringing you the action in what promises to be an exciting encounter.
