Geat decision by Bagh mama.

Aftab was never a test batsman. So the question is should Jahur bat at no#4 or Mushy should bat at no#4 and Jahur should bat at no#6 or 7.

I'm also hopful Shafiul would do better in Test than Shahadat. At the moment Shafiul has the most variation in the squad.

In recent times, we won Nayeem's debut game, we won Rubel's debut game, we almost won Shuvo' debut game. [Only exception, Shafiul]
So hopefully we will win Jahurul' debut game as well :)

I expect he'll keep wicket from time to time during the test match.

With Mushy and Jahurul sharing keeping duties, we may even see Mushy bowl an over or two!

Good luck Johurul..

Not expecting anything from this kid until i see him myself, Shuvo was so overhyped in this forum so much so that i got brainwashed believing he was the saviour of BD cricket, But after i saw him play, He cudn't even spin the damn ball. So i'll keep my reservation on him until i see it myself.

This will be a big test for our domestic cricket. Jahurul has payed 60 first class macthes which is a very significant number. He has been a consistent performer of our domestic circuit and has FC average of 36.34 which is decent.

He is making debut at the age of 24 which is also good. He should be a more matured cricketer at this age compared to his team-mates who made their debut as teenagers.

Wow...gotta give it to the selectors this time...they did a very good job...I tip my hat to them...only thing I would've done different is include a W/K batsman and let Mushfiq focus on batting alone.

what a bunch of selectors we have! They've spoiled opportunities of other player by keeping Aftab match after match.

I'd rather have a team full of players who are talented plus hardworking/patient/persevering as opposed to those possessing "supreme?!!!" talent by our standards (likes of Ash, SN, Aftab) and lacking these all important virtues...kudos to the selectors for getting it almost right this time.

Wish him the best of luck. A new firepower in the batting line up is always welcome and with Siddons being now forced to play Mushy and Riad up the order we may finally get to that stable line up need.

Hopefully, this will allow us to strenghten the bowling unit as well by taking the pressure off to select a team that bats way too deep.

It's way too late. He should have been handed Test cap at the age of 15. Not only Naeem, he is an ideal replacement for every future Test cricketer who are hard working and put a price on their wicket. However, it is a really a bad move that he is replacing one of the talented players of the team (Aftab) who are supposed to play regardless of their performances.

Tiger Manc
March 19, 2010, 10:43 AM
Great news hopefully he can cement his place in the team. If he performs and Imrul gets some runs on the board, effectively we've got rid of all our deadwoods and non-performers. I'm glad the management have shown faith in Imrul, I think he will deliver in this Test. If Shuvo were to break into the team in the future instead of Razzak, that would mean we have 8 and a half batsman. Hopefully we can start scoring 400 runs on a regular basis.

Dont forget, Aftab is the best player we have for T20 along with Shakib and Tamim. Riad(Better in longer versions), Naeem(so called good players) and so on does not have the talent but the performance. But Aftab is for short not longer version of the game.

Short is for short people

Actually I have high hope for jahurul.At under 19 level shakib was only batsman and very occassional bowler , even mehrab jr used to bowl more than him
sabbir Rahman included under 19 team As a bowlerbut turned out to be one of the finest batsman.
Shuvo was more like a bowler and he is better in longer format
ash and kapali included in the team as a bowler but u know the outcome
naeem didn't bowl that many over even in his life time, thebowling he did for national team
mahmudulah was offspinner but turned out tone finest test batsmanand allrounder
who knows maybe jahurul will turnout to be best wktkeeper batsman

ঘরোয়া লিগে পরীক্ষিত পারফর্মারদের একজন, জাতীয় দলে আসি-আসি করছেনও অনেক দিন। সেই ডাকটা পেলেন নাটকীয়ভাবে, সিরিজের মাঝখানে। আজ টেস্ট অভিষেকও হয়ে যাচ্ছে তাঁর। দীর্ঘদিনের স্বপ্ন পূরণের খবর শোনার পর জহুরুল ইসলাম জানালেন তাঁর অনুভূতি, বললেন অতীত আর ভবিষ্যত্ নিয়ে...

টেস্ট অভিষেক হচ্ছে, কেমন লাগছে?
জহুরুল: খুব ভালো লাগছে। অন্যান্য ভালো লাগার মতো নয়, অন্যরকম এক ভালো লাগা। টেস্ট খেলাটা অনেক দিনের স্বপ্ন। সেই স্বপ্ন পূরণ হওয়ার আনন্দ অন্যরকম।

এত তাড়াতাড়ি টেস্ট অভিষেক হয়ে যাচ্ছে, অবাক লাগছে না?
জহুরুল: আসলে আমার তো মনে হয়, আমি একটু দেরিতেই ডাক পেলাম। নয় বছর ধরে আমি জাতীয় লিগ খেলছি, ‘এ’ দলে প্রথম খেলেছি ২০০৫ সালে। আমার চেয়ে কম বয়সেও তো কতজন খেলে ফেলল। আমি সব সময় পারফর্মও করেছি, তবে হয়তো ধারাবাহিক ছিলাম না। এবার ধারাবাহিক রান করেছি বলেই হয়তো ডাক পেয়েছি।

দলে ডাক পাওয়ার খবরটা কীভাবে পেয়েছিলেন?
জহুরুল: জাতীয় লিগের ফাইনালের শেষ দিন রাতে প্রধান নির্বাচক রফিক ভাই (রফিকুল আলম) ফোন করে বললেন মানসিকভাবে প্রস্তুত থাকতে, ডাকা হতে পারে। পরে আবার ফোন করে নিশ্চিত করেছেন।

এই দুই ফোনকলের মাঝের সময়টা কীভাবে কেটেছে?
জহুরুল: একটু টেনশন হচ্ছিল, অস্থির সময় কেটেছে।

সিরিজের মাঝখানে এভাবে ডাক পেয়ে অবাক লাগেনি?
জহুরুল: রকিবুল অবসর নেওয়াতেই তো ডাক পেলাম। দল ঘোষণা হয়ে গেছে, ভেবেছিলাম এবার অন্তত আর হলো না। সিরিজের মাঝখানে ডাক পাওয়াটা তো অবাক করার মতোই।

টেস্ট খেলাটা অনেক দিনের স্বপ্ন বললেন, ঠিক কত দিনের মনে পড়ে?
জহুরুল: যেদিন থেকে ক্রিকেটটা বুঝতে শিখেছি। যখন বুঝলাম টেস্ট ক্রিকেটটাই সবচেয়ে মর্যাদার, সবচেয়ে কঠিনও; সেদিন থেকেই স্বপ্ন।

৬০টি প্রথম শ্রেণীর ম্যাচ খেলে টেস্টে নামছেন, এটা নিশ্চয়ই সাহায্য করবে?
জহুরুল: তা তো অবশ্যই। আগেই বলেছি, আমি একটু দেরিতেই ডাক পেলাম। বাংলাদেশে ১৪-১৫টা প্রথম শ্রেণীর ম্যাচ খেলে প্রায় সবাই সুযোগ পেয়ে যায়। এত দিন ধরে বড় দৈর্ঘ্যের ম্যাচ খেলে আসছি, এই অভিজ্ঞতা সাহায্য তো করবেই। তবে আমি আগে থেকেই কিছু বলতে চাই না, আগে তো পারফর্ম করতে হবে।

একাদশে থাকায় আপনার উইকেটকিপিংয়েরও একটা ভূমিকা আছে বলে শোনা যাচ্ছে...
জহুরুল: ভূমিকা আছে কি না জানি না। তবে কিপিংটা আমি মোটামুটি নিয়মিতই করি। এবার প্রিমিয়ার লিগে বিমানের হয়ে ১৬ ম্যাচের ১২টিতেই কিপিং করেছি, মুশফিকও আমাদের দলেই ছিল, কিন্তু ও ইনজুর্ড ছিল। সামনে পিসিএলেও ব্রাদার্সের মূল উইকেটকিপার আমিই। পাইলট ভাই-ধীমান দুজনেই রাজশাহী দলে বলে এবার জাতীয় লিগেই শুধু কিপিংটা সেভাবে করা হয়নি।

আপনার নিজের কাছে কোনটা আগে?
জহুরুল: অবশ্যই ব্যাটিং। উইকেটকিপার-ব্যাটসম্যান নই, আমি নিজেকে মনে করি ব্যাটসম্যান-উইকেটকিপার।

টেস্ট অভিষেকের মাহেন্দ্রক্ষণে কার কথা সবচেয়ে বেশি মনে পড়ছে?
জহুরুল: অবশ্যই আমার মা। কেউ চাইত না আমি খেলাধুলা করি। একমাত্র মা-ই সব সময় আমাকে সমর্থন দিয়ে গেছে, বলেছেন মন দিয়ে খেলে যেতে। মায়ের কারণেই এত দূর আসা। বাবা খেলা-টেলা একদম পছন্দ করতেন না, চাইতেন শুধু পড়াশোনাটাই করি। অনূর্ধ্ব-১৭ দলে ডাক পেয়ে ঢাকা আসার সময় বাবা বলেছিলেন, বাড়ি থেকেই একেবারে বের হয়ে যেতে। তবু মায়ের ভরসায় আমি চলে আসি। এখন অবশ্য বাবাও অনেক খুশি। তবে বাবার চাপে পড়ে পড়াশোনাটাও করতে হয়েছে, এখন তো বুঝি এটা কত ভালো হয়েছে।

প্রিয় ক্রিকেটার কে?
জহুরুল: দেশের বাইরে প্রিয় রাহুল দ্রাবিড়, আর দেশে ছিলেন রোকন ভাই (আল-শাহরিয়ার)। রোকন ভাইয়ের খেলা দারুণ লাগত, খুব স্মার্ট ক্রিকেটার ছিলেন। খুব বড় ইনিংস হয়তো বেশি খেলতে পারেননি, তবে খুব স্টাইলিশ ব্যাটসম্যান ছিলেন।[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]জহুরুল সম্পর্কে সিডন্সের প্রাথমিক পর্যবেক্ষণ, ‘শর্ট বলে খুব ভালো।’ তবে জহুরুলকে সবচেয়ে বেশি জানেন জাতীয় লিগে রাজশাহীর অধিনায়ক খালেদ মাসুদ। দীর্ঘদিন একসঙ্গে খেলার অভিজ্ঞতা থেকেই বললেন, ‘মাঠ এবং মাঠের বাইরে খুবই ডিসিপ্লিন্ড ক্রিকেটার। টেকনিক ভালো, সোজা ব্যাটে খেলে। আমার বিশ্বাস, পারফর্ম করে ও লম্বা সময় জাতীয় দলে থাকবে। ফর্মের তুঙ্গে থাকা অবস্থায়ই তাকে টেস্ট খেলার সুযোগ দেওয়াটাকে বিচক্ষণ সিদ্ধান্তই বলব।’ রকিবুল হাসানের অবসর হঠাত্ করেই জাতীয় দলে নিয়ে আসে জহুরুলকে। ১০ মার্চ জাতীয় লিগে চ্যাম্পিয়ন হওয়ার রাতে খবরটা পাওয়ায় জহুরুলকে ঘিরেই জমে উঠেছিল রাজশাহীর শিরোপা জয়ের উত্সব। তাঁর টেস্ট অভিষেকের খবরে মাসুদের আনন্দ বেড়ে যাচ্ছে আরও, ‘জাতীয় লিগে টানা ৯ ম্যাচ খেলার পর চট্টগ্রাম টেস্টেই খেলতে হলে তার ওপর চাপ পড়ে যেত। ঢাকাতে অভিষেক হওয়াতেই ভালো হচ্ছে। কোচ তাঁকে দেখেছেন, সে-ও দলের সঙ্গে মানিয়ে নেওয়ার সুযোগ পেয়েছে।’[/বাংলা]

I wish him well but fear that putting him behind the stumps is a disaster waiting to happen. You don't just suddenly pick up the gloves again after God knows how long and perform to international standard.

Is there anything concrete to suggest he's definitely been brought in as a keeper and not as a batsman?

Ash was a spinning allrounder at U-17 level

I read all his U/17 scorecards a while ago and he was batting between 1-4 in all of them if I remember correctly. The spinning, I think, I may have been secondary.

From memory he also said as much in an article a couple of years ago.

Whatever the case, I hope he gets a fair run and not just in and out based on 1 or 2 tests. He should be given this test as well as the next two in ENG and possibly the next series so he is not under the added pressure to score runs in his debut test.

His credentials are very good. 7 centuries and 22 half centuries means the guy has talent, application, and temperament. He has proven he can be good in domestic cricket but I think he needs time before he is going to be a good international batsman. Lot of the batsmen come in and have problems with their technique, so Siddons has to work with him and try to make him the best player he can be. I think patience is key but I believe he will be a solid batsman for us in the future. Wish him the best of luck.

Good at playing short balls from BD bowlers doesn't say much. Just like Fletcher said, an additional 10 miles or even 10k from 6.7' bolwer would be very uncomforting for someone just coming in at the internation level. So we really need to wait and see how good he is.

I would rather term it as "tough luck". It looked tight at the first sight as Jahurul was in the back foot, but if you look replays over and over, then you think that benefit should have gone to batsman. He should have been on the front-foot to that ball.

Anyway, do not write him off. He deserve to get some more chances. Also the 2nd innings is still there, though I doubt as he will be very very nervous. First run in the 2nd innings will be crucial.

he is included in national team as a middle order batsman though he normally opened for his domestic league. Nayeem Islam was also an opener before turning himself as a middle order batsman. The bowling attacks we provide for our domestic opener is equivalent if not less to middle overs bowling of international match.

I disagree. There will always be a quantum jump between domestic and international cricket. Even Hashim Amla suffered it. The gap is even bigger for our domestic players. It's too quick to judge Jahurul. right now, he's as ready as he'll ever be. Let's just wait and see if he's got it in him to be a success like Mahmudullah.

He is an opener, not a number 8 player. If you want this way then Tamim, Imrul, Zunaeed and others had to start at # 8, but they didn't. Openers always play at top order, thats how they have been trained up.

I cant take the theory of "regular opener's inability of batting down the order"..as specialist batsman one should have the mentality of batting at any level. Although thing may not goes same while opening the inning. but also an opener has to deal during middle of the innings. Otherwise he wont be able to score tons.
in case of Aumi...it was bound to happen since he was a debutant. either duck or century. hope may he come back strongly in 2nd innings

Agree with you. No7/8 position would be better for any debutant middle-order batsman. They wouldn't have that much pressure on that position. His technique looks good to me. Hope he will be fine on 2nd innings.

I agree and that will also send the wrong impression to the new player that there is no confidence in him. Its different with Riyadh since he was brought in as an allrounder and fought his way up the order which he derserved. We should not put too much pressure on jahurul by expecting too much. It is always a big gap between int and domestic cricket however its not wise to judge him after an innings. I think judgment should be made after 5 matches however since BD do not really play too much test cricket he should atleast get another home test series regardless of his performance in the second inings.

March 20, 2010, 09:52 AM
A top order batsman should bat at the top...batting lower down the order can't really help a debutant calm his nerves when he has to hang around for so long with butterflies in his stomach, add to that he has to adjust his game to something he's not used to doing...I'm still not giving up on him since it was only his first innings and one could argue he was unfortunate to get a bad (or at least not so good) decision considering both height and line of the ball (taking turn into account)...I really want him to do well for our sake as that'll be a great boost to our domestic/first class cricket paving the way for others/showing that performers in these leagues are capable of transitioning onto the international stage.

^^ Thanks for bringing this up. Lots of single digit scores!! I may be speaking soon but he seems like a BD cricketer from the previous generation with no patience and lack of knowledge about proper test cricket. He is no where near the same caliber as Tamim, Shakib, Mushy & co.

Let's see. Definitely he is getting a call for the England tour as JS think that he is a good player of short balls.

Looks like he had some ABility in 06/07 but he had ducks as well ... He's still the Flavor of the month in my opinion one good season should not vault you in the Test Team unless your Averaging 50+ or doing a Ryiad

Miraz
March 23, 2010, 05:53 AM
He looked like a decent player, got out by a very good delivery which turned miles out of nowhere. It's too early to pass judgment on him, but I will take him to England. He should play the warm-ups and his performances in those matches should decide his position within the Test team.

I'm impressed with him. If kayes/Aftab can tour England, then i don't see any reason to left him out of the squad. Bare in mind, this Jahirul guy is playing cricket since 2001/2002 (along with Ash and mash), which is a lot of time to gain enough experience compare to most of the current players. And i'm sure he will improve alot if he stay under JS.

And i agree with Miraz, he should be given chances in thepractice matches in London before we consider him toplay the first test against England in May.

simon
March 23, 2010, 06:42 AM
I would also like to see Jahurul in England.
If Aftb/Imrul can get so many chances(never reached 40s even) then Jahurul is a must.

zainab
March 23, 2010, 07:18 AM
It was the wrong test to pick him. Period.

Any newbie should not be chosen for test cricket unless he has played in ODI's, come to think of it, Aftab would have played better. Jahirul might be a good choice for ODIs and 20/20s and eased into the test side in a few years.
This will give him more confidence to make it as a test player.

magic boy
March 23, 2010, 08:08 AM
no problem-0. while others are doing consecutive craps his presence in the team wont be that much hard. Rather I see more potentiality in him than previous new comer Sohrawardi Shuvo. Though Aumi sounds better in ODI & T20.

_Rafi_
March 23, 2010, 08:16 AM
Aumi should take Aftab's position in ODI

Who else can we try out then? I mean this guy absolutely dominated the NCL this past season and its only fair 2 try out a player whose done so well..I mean averaging in the 60's for a whole season is very impressive in any league and also 7 centuries is clearly amazing..the guy had to be tried out more..if your thinking aftab should be there instead of jahurul then your wrong..aftab has consistently sucked and we need to try out more batsmen..since when has aftab done well on any level? Not even in the NCL he's good..jahurul at least dominates the ncl..i think in the end he will become a good player but we have to be patient and no matter what you say he did deserve the call..

Fazal
March 23, 2010, 08:17 AM
Now that he is already being choosen, there is no reason to drop him in next series. Thats the worst thing we can do to a new player. Wright or wrong, BCB made a decision about giving him a chance, now they need to stick with him a little longer.... it doesn't matter whether he is long term solution or not.... BCB need to give him enough chance to make a case for either way... and that means he need to be included for atleast one more series.

March 23, 2010, 09:00 AM
I don't think it was a wrong decision. He's been playing in the NCL for a long time and has 60 FC games to back him up. Moreover, he has replaced Aftab and anybody is better than Aftab. I didn't watch him yesterday, how did he look? Debuting a batsman in ODIs first is so yesterday - if he is more suitable for the longer version and has played enough games, by all means pick him.

Now if you were picking him for Tests after only a handful of FC games or based on his List-A performances, that's different. I agree with Miraz bhai - take him to England and make him sit out the Tests if he doesn't seem ready and in that case, give him a few games against the associates.

March 23, 2010, 10:13 AM
To me he looked very decent batsman as a debutant. He got agression equally compose and solid bating tecnique. Why r we so eager to change and bring in every match new replacement if though some tendulkars waiting in our backyard for replacement. Wake up people, give this lad sometime to cope at this level. Whoever come next they will need time to adjust. Look at tamim recall his starting career innings, how erratic and limited he was. Look at tamim now , he has improved a lot. Jahurul need sometime, so no cry for change now, period.

Omi looked pretty decent. Ofcourse, he was nervous in the beginning and played some risky shots but he does have a decent technique and with time, he should be fine. Bye bye Imrul!

^^ Thanks for bringing this up. Lots of single digit scores!! I may be speaking soon but he seems like a BD cricketer from the previous generation with no patience and lack of knowledge about proper test cricket. He is no where near the same caliber as Tamim, Shakib, Mushy & co.

Shakib, Mushy & Co. are a different breed apart from a lot of our players, and a lot of that has to deal with how McInnes brought them up. so yes Jahrul is probably a little behind in terms of them, but the recent improvements by Mushy & co. came because of Siddon. I think you are jumping on the gun a bit too early. you can't judge a players knowledge of test cricket by watching one game.

When Tamim first came, he was termed as one dimensional player with limited batting skillset. When Sakib first came he was termed as the Rana 2.0. Plus Sakib's bolwing was termed as below average. Now see where they are right now.
Now Jahirul may or may not grow that way, but you never know unless you try them. As long as he takes baby steps toward that, I will be happy.

My first impression on him:
Good:
1. He got solid technique.
2.Good hitter of the ball.
3.Can play over the top.
4.Good on short delivery.

Bad:
1. Not a very good fielder
2.Cant play square or late cut.
3.Not a good sweeper.

I'm all for Jaharul too.
I did see a bit of him today and he looked pretty solid to me.
I liked how he was ready to use his feet against the spinners and when he played shots, he played shots. There was no yes-no. It was yes and then it flew over the boundary ropes.

More importantly, he looked assuring.

Considering a Test match, It should look like:

Good:
1. He got solid technique.
2.Good hitter of the ball.
3........
4.Good on short delivery.

Bad:
1. Not a very good fielder
2.Cant play square or late cut.
3.Not a good sweeper.
+4. Can play over the top.

People who are saying get jahurul in2 ODI's before tests..look at his stats before saying that!! He has an average of a 21.89 in List A matches which is not good enough for the ODI team..lets play players to their strengths and in this case Jahurul has a solid FC record and should be only considered in the test fold 4 now..he does look like hes got the shots and technique but he needs 2 prove himself in domestic List A matches..these upcoming A team tours would be good 2 try him out..in my opinion i would keep him around for the next 5-10 matches and then i'll make a judgement on him but so far hes been decent..

As I watched him, Juhrul seemed a very solid player to me. He was unlucky in both innings the way he got out. I am pretty sure he will contribute a lot in near future for BD. He has improved little bit little over the years. I know few years ago he was not that great, but now he has become really a solid player, seems to be our future. Please let him play for at least 6/7 matches, then we all can judge him.

Though he was ignored during McInnes era, in post McInnes era Jahurul spent significant amount of time in A-team/academy set up. Also, the Rajshahi coach Shahnewaz Shahid (Shanu), who according to Jahurul is a significant influence on his batting, should be considered in another league from typical Bangladeshi domestic coaches. IMO, it will be misleading to generalize Jahurul as simply a product of the domestic leagues.

On a related note, Shanu should be appointed as the batting coach for the academy.

Jahirul remains upbeat


The platform was not perfect for debutant batsman Jahirul Islam to deal with the press as defeat was looming for the home team at the end of the fourth day's play of the second and final Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

But there was no shortage of confidence when the newcomer talked about his team's chance to earn a credible draw, his effort in the second innings after a first innings duck and obviously on poor umpiring and the pitch.

"We should draw the match because we have played good cricket. It will be really nice for us if we have two more wickets in hand at the end of the day. But still we are hopeful because Shafiul scored a fifty in the first innings while Naeem is yet to bat," said Jahirul when asked whether it would be possible for his side to save the match on 172 for six.

"You never know what can happen in cricket. Still it is possible to draw the match if we can spend time in the middle for two sessions on the final day. The first session will be crucial for us and we must play the first session without any damage," he added.

Jahirul said that he could have prolonged his innings if he had avoided playing too many shots and dealt with spinner Graeme Swann more carefully. "Actually I stepped into a trap. I was a little bit excited as it's my first match and I went to bat on the back of a duck. I wanted to get back my confidence by playing some shots but it was not my plan to hit sixes," he said about his innings.

"I played a lot of four-day matches but Test cricket is a totally different ball game because the intensity is too high here. And what is important is that everybody is looking to me when I'm playing for my country which is not the case for the domestic or other competition,” he added.

Like his captain Shakib Al Hasan told on the previous day, Shafiul also said that nothing could have been better than a spin-friendly wicket when they play at home.

Jahirul could barely hold back his emotion when asked whether he believed that they lost their focus following some bad decisions, which went against them on the third day.

"It's right. We were working hard yesterday and if you don't give out one specialist batsman, then you may not get the second chance. They didn't give out Matt Prior, he scored 62, then same mistake for [Tim] Bresnan, and he scored 91. If we had got those two wickets, they might have been bowled out for 275 to 300 runs. Then we would have been in a strong position," he said.

He also said that the umpires made mistakes when asked about today's decisions some of which went against England bowlers. "We want a fair result."

LOL. Come on, you don't wanna get fined on debut. Let the big boys do the talking. You do your job and hold on to the catches that come your way.

I am aure that he will be in the 20/20 squad, and should ease himself in international cricket by playing ODIs and then test matches. BCB has done everything backwards, you just cannot push a player into the Test arena without trying him out in the odis first.
I hope that they never do this again.
