So when are we kicking Rubel out of the side and give this guy an opportunity? Just compare the FC records of Rubel and Shahzada, the selectors are dumb so are the BD fans for rating the below par Rubel so highly.

before him-- we have subhashis, talha, sajedul, emon, robin, rasel, alauddin babu,robiul islam shiplu.

and all of a sudden u bring shahzada and compare with rubel (to accomodate him we have to drop pacer like najmul and shahadat)

this shajada is not even in the top 20 bowler in NCL

shahjada is decent player playing at the peak of his career.

rubel has just started his career, and has a lot of potential to go way way further than shahjada's reach.

rubel will show what he can be within the next one year.

He's 23 years old. Hardly at the peak of his career.

some players, specially from subcontinent and specially from bd or pak peaks in 20-25 and then fades away

ash, aftab, kapali, nafees, rokon, opi, biddyut, sajal chowdhury......

then imrannazir, yasir hamid, wasti..... lots of examples.....

Rubel has the potential of becoming a speedster in BD team. we need real fast bowler.....not medium fast bowlers. What is Shahazada's average speed?

beshideshi
February 26, 2010, 06:08 AM
The stats are certainly more than impressive. An average of 21 is impressive no matter what the competition. He may be given a chance.
But the thing with Rubel is, he is a very rare breed. A real pacer who knocks 90mph barrier very often. and has the potential to become one of the finest pacer in the sub continent. And for that he needs experience, and out domestic standard is not yet good enough to help groom world class players. That's why I think Rubel should be exposed to international cricket as it will help him grow.

He's picked up a 6 fer just a few days ago in a match where 3-104 was the 2nd best bowling figures so that says something about him.

Ok I agree Rubel is probably only BD bowler who's got the ability to bowl 6 deliveries in an over @ 140-145 kph but then 'Pace is not everything' comes in to mind. Look at Kemar Roach, he looks a sensational bowler cause he broke Ricky's elbow but is he as effective as say Bollinger, Steyn or Zaheer Khan? Mohammad Aamer is probably the only bowler who uses his pace well and already looks like a star but Rubel is not even half a star.

What's the use of other bowlers performing regularly at the NCL and then guys like Rubel getting opportunities after averaging 150 in a season with the ball? Are the selectors nuts? It's not about pace and sheer aggression but it's about being effective and being able to pick up wickets/controlling the runs and imo Rubel fails at both.

so who got wickets against NZ, though he gave a lot of runs.

who got the figures of 4/33 against srilanka and won us the match, though it was shakibs innings that was more influential.

we have seen the likes of dollar mahmud and robin given the chance play for national team and just see the difference. the stats they have in national cricket doesnot replicate in international cricket.

all our bowlers, when they go to international arena goes for runs, specially pacers. because all of them are not consistent and pitch the ball way short or full, which is giving them wickets in domestic level but that goes for runs in international level.

al-Sagar
February 26, 2010, 07:59 AM
rubel has shown he can trouble batsman with his bounce, his pace, his reverse swing. but every now and then he bowls a boundary ball. also i have seen in a match when he should have bowled yorkers ashraful was asking him to bowl bouncers and he was being pulled for 4s and 6s.

we have a great prospect in rubel, but we need to to grow him and use him properly.

khalek
February 26, 2010, 08:04 AM

He hasn't gone on any 'A' tours but he has played for BCB XI against some international touring side. Even if he underperformed, that counts as only one opportunity in which he failed but look at Rubel, he is failing all the time yet he's being given so many opportunities but we just don't realize how many games is losing for us with his undisciplined bowling as he manages to somehow make up for it with his quick bowling and win our hearts.

Those are just couple of performances. The five fer against NZ doesn't count really, it was just terrible. He was known as a very good OD bowler when he first came to the scene and he proved that against SL and then what happened? He was one of the main culprits for our exit from the T20 world in 2009 (Check his figures) Yes he did bowl with pace but he wasn't effective.

Statswise even Baisya and Jubair had better starts to their careers than Rubel. What really is the guarantee that he will turn into a great bowler one day even with coaching and stuff? Yes he can get good bounce and reverse the ball a little bit but he doesn't seem to be able to use it. He can improve on those but it will take him ages to improve on them as he is just another stubborn Bangladeshi seamer who just wants to spray the bowl around. How much time can we waste on his development or rather how many matches can we lose just for the sake of his development?

Just look at those performances, they were 4 years and I still can't believe he hasn't played for Bangladesh and on the other hand, Rubel is being referrred as the pace sensation for no reason.

Screw the selectors.

February 26, 2010, 09:44 AM
so now my question, why u select rubel as the man to go out???

why not shafiul, is there a bowler on the wings who has played good for a long time, why our selectors are drafting in some one season wonders like shafiul, dollar,sajedul or robin ??? all of them got their chance with only one good seasons whereas shajada is being neglected for 4-5 years ?????

Looked and agree on the bolded part because Dolar > Shahzada and he is not in the team. If anybody have a doubt on this equality read the Cricinfo article when Dolar, missing an important L in the middle, how started to sweep up the currency market on a given day ;).

As far as I can remember, Shahjada was struggling to make the Mohamedan team in this year's DPL. In some games, Mohamedan even went with just one pacer (Rana Naved) and even when he got a chance, he would bowl 2-3 overs only. Saw his bowling on TV. He is very average to be honest.

Or does his Pakistani sounding name turn you on, yaarr !

No disrespect meant, bhai, but please, learn how to take feedback from ppl. That is the biggest problem in ppl here.

Farhad
February 26, 2010, 11:27 AM
I think youre being a little hard on Rubel here. By no means is he the best of bowlers atm, but with his pace, (relative) accuracy, and aggression, he has the potential to be much, much more. The only way to foster that potential is to have him play against decent sides. Theres no point in him bullying around domestic sides - he had an avg of 16 (thats less than Shakib) and a SR of 25 (thats more than 2 wickets/match) in DPL this year - when he can learn how to outwit real professionals on the field. He couldn't even dream of those figures a year ago before he got into the national side. Thats what one year of international experience did for him.

Add to that his pace and ability to throw off batsmen, and its a no-brainer...

Shahajada has one of the best averages in domestic matches, if not the best. Look at his stats. I believe he was not given enough exposures in international matches. Only few international matches do not justify someone’s ability. He was really one of the best few years ago. His performance in recent years has degraded though, until his last first class performance. If he keeps performing the same way, I am sure he will be called up unless falls into selection politics as he has been in the past. In contrast, Rubel is at his pick and I think he is doing really great. He is fast and he knows how to take wickets. By the way, I prefer someone's stats behind him rather than speed. Talent means nothing if someone cannot take wickets.

2) After hurting 100 more batsman with his vicious bouncers

I welcome this thread.

Mohammad Shahzada has been one of the most consistent performers in domestic cricket for the past 4-5 years. He's an accurate bowler who can bat well. Not as aggressive as Talha (also an accurate seamer), he lacks the type of variety we see in Rasel and Talha, but that can be taught. Young guys like this, he's ONLY 23, are ideally suited for the shorter versions and need to be developed through the A Team.

Perhaps you Rubel fans should get married to him, he can never become a good ODI bowler let alone tests. He can't hurt any batsmen with 140ish pace, you need to be 150+ consistently to hurt batsmen and he's gonna lose all the pace he's got now after just 2 years. What a wannabe slinger..

Speed and accuracy are not mutually exclusive when it comes to fast bowling. You need both to succeed at the highest level where we find ourselves.

Within the Bangladeshi context (we ain't the Top 8):

There's room for accurate slowish bowlers (mid 120s to 130), especially in the shorter versions, who can contain the opposition with accurate line and length, and occasional but effectively scripted variety: Rasel and Shahzada.

There's room for quick (mid 30s to mid 140s) and aggressive bowlers who can go for runs but also get wickets. These guys tend to be more useful in tests where it is harder to score runs because of the absence of bowling/fielding restrictions that favor batsmen in the shorter versions: Rubel, Shuhash (Shafiul), Shubhashish and Shumon Shaha.

There's room for aggressive and accurate bowlers with so-so speed (low to upper mid 130s) but who can bowl to the field set for them: Talha and on occasion, Rajib (Shahadat) and Sajid.

There are also guys of variable speed like Farhad Reza, Robin, Zia, Milon and Nazmul who are capable of giving you 4 excellent overs for T20Is.

Then there's MaMu, just don't let him bowl in the death overs.

Most of our guys are too young to be written off. Our focus should be on giving them great bowling coaches and sporting pitches, not on these absurd X for Y and Y for Z games.

and he is struggling to find a place in an NCL team (Rajshahi)
.... things are getting worse for him now-a-days

Most of our guys are too young to be written off. Our focus should be on giving them great bowling coaches and sporting pitches, not on these absurd X for Y and Y for Z games.

Sohel NR bhai - why can we not get good coaches for the age groups ? It is just so baffling.

Can we not overpay an Australian academy coach and keep him with us for 1 year ?

Or just bring over some notable names from other countries for shorter stints ?

Rubel is a rare find. Admit it Khalek. However, I happen to agree that we are pushing him too hard. His follow-through scares me. It seems as if he is falling of a cliff. This is recipe for premature damage to ligaments and joints. His action should be fixed before he is given the extended duty in test matches. We have a thin talent pool for high octane pace bowler. Lets not mess it up.

Hi guys

Rubel Hossain 6 0 62 0 10.33 (1w)

His ODI average has gone up to 45 I believe, any guesses about the economy rate? :p

He's got the worst career economy rate for a bowler who's bowled 600+ balls.

Guys like Rasel, Talha and Shahzada will continue to make the case for accuracy over speed in the shorter versions of cricket.

u r a bit wrong, he is second, behind chamu chibhabha

also shafiul has currently worse economy rate than rubel. so when shafiul reaches 600 balls he may also go over rubel

WTF ... if intended as a joke then it is a HORRIBLE one ... if intended to pawn Rubel then to bad for you anf time to crawl under a rock for you ... give respect where it is due ... Rubel is learning and starting to show some improvement with more yorkers. No one improves overnite and most certainly no one is a WORLDCLASS player unless they work day and night. Give Rubel a few more years before throwing bad jokes like this

Ya this is absolutely ridiculous at how you are bashing the hell out of rubel, khalek..the guy is only 20 years old and has jus played 15 ODI matches and..you need a lot more matches before you can judge a player..yes he does a have a ways 2 go but there is no question he is improving..what about that 5fer against NZ..who cares about how expensive he was..fact is we only had shahadat and aftab(sadly) as our only pacers 2 take 5fers in test matches..give credit where credit is due..the fact is we are just way 2 lean on fast bowlers which is why rubel has 2 come in soo early..i agree with you however shahzada is a good pacer and has performed well but have you seen him enough in matches 2 judge that he is better? Tell us what you see in shahzada compared 2 rubel..

Again.. not compairing with Rubel, in my openion Shahazada was not given enough exposure in the international matches given his excellent domestic performance for at least 4/5 years. Just name some players who have better stats than Shahazada in domestic. I think he was the victim of selection politics, perhaps he didn't have any uncle in BCB. However his performance in recent years has been good though. Lets see how he does against Chittagong.

shahzada just bowed an waste of an over. a maiden, but all the balls way outside offside. mat be 4-5 of them would be wide in odi's. faisal decans wasn't interested to chase any of the wide except one which was a bit closer.

So if Khalek doesn't write anymore on this thread until the day's play is over then there is a good chance that he is Shahzada!

Lol I have other work to do, I only log in in the evening on weekdays.

Ok I take it back, Rubel Hossain is a legend. Mohammad Shahzada = Fail.
