View Full Version : I Was Wrong About ........

The purpose of this thread to openly admit your expectations or assertions that have been incorrect.

I’ll start.

I have been wrong about……

(A) Tamim Iqbal : I was sure he would be another ura dhura batsman and would not grow as a batsman. He has definitely proved me wrong and continues to improve. He still show immaturity here and there and once he learns to shut out the opposition for sledging , the world better watch out. :)

(B) Bangladesh in T20 : I was sure we would be a force to be reckoned with in this new format. But lack of respect to the format from the board, selectors, coach and even the players has made us an embarrassment after a promising win against WI in the first world cup :(

(C) Aftab and Nafees’ return : I was sure they would have a positive impact after the ICL ban was lifted. Though its hard to finalize on Nafees after getting only one test match, Aftab just doesn’t seem like he will make any contribution to the team. :(

(D) Mushy’s Keeping : I like Mushy for his positive attitude and he genuinely seems like someone always wanting to improve. I didn’t think much of his keeping and was sure that it would improve with time. It hasn’t though :(

(E) Junaed : I was very excited about him and he seemed like he could be something special with the T20 knock vs. Pakistan (even the T20 WC vs. IND) and the marathon stands with Tamim in Test. ODIs has just been a miserable failure. :(

(F) BD team Winning: After the 2007 WC, I was sure we would be more than a once a win year team. :(

I was wrong about Abdur Razzak, the Batsman. I thought he was better than the top order we had and have. Well in some instances he is but still not the batsman I thought he would turn out to be in international cricket.

I was some what wrong on going against the fast tracking the U-19 players like Tamim and Shakib. Growing pains.

We need a "I was right" thread. I can contribute heavily there. :)

I thought finally BCB relaized how screwed up Ash is right now for their own in-action.

But guess what after scoring two ducks three ducks in four innings in NCL, he is rewarded with Captaincy for Team-A against England.

By I was soo wrong. Boy how could I even thought BCB finally learned the lesson?

My bad. I retract my earlier comment. Actually I was wrong on wanting a "I was right" thread. Thanks Raynman, I owe you one. Now I realize what a big mistake it can be. Good thing niping in the bud.

Fazal, make it 3 ducks in four innings. Get your stats right. 0(5), 21(49), 0(2) and finally he got the golden one 0(1). You are wrong. (perfect thread)

You've just covered just about all the points I was going to make, except C (I didn't think either of those two players would be particularly useful).

Point F is the one that stands out for me though. Never in my worst nightmares would I have thought that we'd win as few games between the 2007 WC and now as we have.

I agree with Tiger

Abdure Razzak is the right cricketer for in Top Order in Bangladeshi Team.

I was wrong about MUllah. Many times I have called him useless. I am no glad that he gave me a baash and made me eat my word :D

I was wrong about Ashraful. I thought he was gonna contribute heavily once the ICLers left the team.
I wish he went to ICL too.

I was kind of wrong about Rock,I thght he will be a very conistent 1 but he isn't.
Though I believe he will make his comeback.

I was wrong about Raqibul, I thought he would be the man to keep our innings together and be a 30+ average batsman.

Eshen
March 3, 2010, 12:46 PM
Still not giving up my hope on Rock to make a good return in the team.

But I was wrong to think -

1) Naeem would not worth much as a bowler.
2) Aftab would make good use of opportunities given to him (or that at least he would try).

i was wrong to believe that umpires are fair and make impartial decisions when i first started following cricket.

I was wrong about ash, i really thought captaincy whould have made him a more responsible player.

I was wrong about BC, its really hard to just read comments and not contribute

March 3, 2010, 02:33 PM
I was wrong about Shakib. I thought his batting would click more frequently.

I was wrong about Aftab. Thought he would perform well.

I am right about Shahriar Nafees. I knew he is a worthless player with no confidence.

March 3, 2010, 02:45 PM
Dont rule out the rock..4 a while he was our most consistent batsman 4 the team..just recently he has been in bad touch tho..he will definitely be back in form..look at mushfiq and mahmudullah..people might not remember but they were really struggling before 2 make the final cut..people were calling them faltu and stuff but they went back 2 the local leagues, worked hard and made some big scores and are now not looking back..was always right about the icl players..i knew we had more mature batsmen now then those foolz..Was wrong about imrul..thought he was the new tushar imran but boy have i been wrong..he has take my words and spit them right at my face and im happy he did that..hes been impressive so far and hope he continues 2 improve

I'm probably like most people but before each and every series i think ash will always score big and will turn in2 a consistent superstar 4 us but unfortunately it seems that i am wrong every single time..i hope he can prove me right 1 day tho..

I was wrong about -

1. Shahriar Nafis
2. Aftab Ahmed

Both turned out to be craps.

3. M. Mahmudullah

who turned out to be an excellent prospect. But has to improve fielding.

I am unsure about Imrul Kayes and Rubel Hussain. Has to prove many points.

March 3, 2010, 06:50 PM
I was wrong about

1.Tamim ..when I first saw him I thought he was a slogger with little technique .I slotted him in Aftab's category .
2.Mush. I thought he should have been dropped for his bad keeping.His batting has improved by leaps and bounds.
3.Ash ...thought he would be a 'poor mans Tendulkar'

I was wrong about aftab ahmed. He isn't producing as i thought he would, but still need more chances.
I won't admit i was wrong about shariar nafees. Hes got the most hundred for bangladesh in odis and everyone will remember that 150 against australia. He has talent, and needs to be looked at. Everything else i sort of saw coming, except mushis growth as a batsmen, i thought he sucked.

As Nocturnal said "more and more I saw him talking I'm convinced NO HUMAN FORCE can make him kneel down and ask for forgiveness if he is not willing to do that. If this is north america I would sue Doinik Kaler Konto for those misleading pictures with that idiot lotta kamal!"

I was wrong about Raqibul Hasan :(
Never thought that he would retire at age 22 for not being included in the squad. It was more puzzling when he said (in the media)- he tought about it earlier and did what he was planned.
Boy o boy!

I think along the same lines now, but can't be that sure...but what I'm sure of is that if Lotus Kamal did make him kneel then, he would dare not do it again...simply because you can shake a tree when it is but a small green plant, but not when it is a solid shading force which holds together and is responsible for life around it! He can drop a fruit when he wants to, and produce 5 others at will as well :)!
