Today he faced 34 balls to score only 24 @ SR of 70.

Can any1 confirm out of those 34 delivery, did he had any intend to play attacking shot to get boundary rather than only single?

As far as i remember, there is was no intend from him to go for it even on the batting PP. What was he doing? boosting his avg up? if so than i think there should be no place for such a loser like him.


He should be drop for the next series against no matter what.there are plenty of player waiting to get a chance......

Signed.

He didn't attempt a single boundary shot today. Needs to be replaced by either Nasir or Shuvagoto in the next series.

Such selfish players like Riyad shouldn't be playing sport, any player may go through a rough patch but it doesn't mean he will sacrifice team's cause/need for that. Even in the last ball of the innings there was no intent whatsoever.

i can confirm that mahmudullah didn't attempt to hit the ball for a boundary at any stage of his innings. I also think ashraful should be blamed too, 14 runs off 29 balls strike rate less than 50.

He should have scored few more runs for his team.

Nadim

Riyad never batted 1/2/3/4 in domestic cricket and how can u be so sure that he will score runs if he comes at no 3/4??

plus we dont have time to ruin zunaid/Rok/Zuhurul.

Totally. Riyadh sucks and should not get a place in even domestic cricket with his selfish attitude.

And let's not talk rubbish about promoting him up, todays innings proved he SUCKS, and just kick him out.

Faisal should play because he bowls better than Mahmudullah and deserves a shot at Intl. cricket.

I know Siddons is quite stupid but I hope he is not that Stupid! Riyad is totally out of sort and needs a break immedietly. Otherwise, he will end up as another Assdafool.

Nasir and Shuvagoto should come in. Razzak should be replaced by one of Shuvo, Shabbir or Nur. They have to re-assess Aftab and Kapali stituation well again. Not many months left before the World Cup. Hope they are aware of this!

I am sorry to say this, but the coach-think tank bashing is getting a bit harsh. You really think JS asked Riyad to play slowly and get 30 ball 20 in the PP? Riyad's batting was unbearable, I can't believe how two 280 scores turned into 250 and 236 thanks to some rubbish lower order batting.

It's the message constantly sent by the coach is harmful. He is encouraging every one to play for themselves. Did you ever hear the coach talking about team effort and about wins? I don't think so....

Coach is partially liable for developing the team moral and spirit. JS is not the right person. He needs to be removed. Period.

@Nadim, don't get too harsh on Riyad. He knows he needs to play for himself because the team management doesn't care about playing for the team. If he can get some runs under his name he will get few more matches. That's it.

Agree, blame Siddons for anything but this pathetic display by selfish brat Riyadh. Was such a pain :hairpull:

Im just saying someone like Omi or Shak would probably handle that position better.

I disagree...hes not selfish but unable/inexperienced regarding slog over.

He is not such guaranteed batsman to produce run at higher Strike Rate.He choked previous occasions.

I rather blame the team management who's consistently failing to utilize correct player for the right place.

*Format Specialist/Team selection according to the match blah blah*

It's not Ryad's fault. If you followed him, he always plays like this. He should have came out when Ash did and vice versa. For god's sake, if you are going to take ASH in the team might aswell use him for sloging which he is best at.

Mahmudullah is the crapest player we have considering his lack of realisation of the situation or inability to find at least singles if not boundaries.. He comes at an stage when strike rate should be over 100%. In the last two games, we got into a position of 170/180 in 40 overs. We need another say 80-100 runs off the last 60 balls to make a very competitive toal and this guy is not the right player to do it. We need an intelligent player at this stage who can keep the run rate high without losing the wicket which Morgan is doing for England.... Siddon/Mashrafe, please drop this guy.....

well, looks like he is not good at English condition. so need to be drop next game.

did any body thinks that he couldn't play a shot cause england was bowling supervely and he decided to keep his wicket instead getting all out in 50? didn't that score was enough at the end?

Probably he should have batted on Ashraful's spot. Riyad needs some time to adjust in the middle. He is a good batsman.

Ashraful should bat at 8/9. I'm not joking he is perfect for a no. 8 or 9. Short quick innings would help BD to push for bigger innings.

July 10, 2010, 05:43 PM
I completely agree that Mahamudullah is a selfish player. He pissed me off so much with the way he was batting. And please dont say it was the team strategy because I dont believe Jamie Siddons forbid him from hitting in the powerplay or the last over. So dont blame it team strategy and JS, its all Riyadh's selfishness. I wasnt angry with his slow batting, what really pissed me off was the fact, that Riyadh didnt even show any intent out there. Its like he didnt even had any inclination of going after the bowling

Faisal should be given another chance, and I wonder if its possible to bring in Nazimuddin into the team and convert him into a finisher? Or bring n Nasir and Shuvogoto. However, I dont want Razzak to be replaced because I think Razzak seems to be getting his bowlin-form back once again

u r right!
It's true that Ryad was quite selfish today.
At the same time I think we r misusing his talent.
He should come in to bat before Sakib & Ash as these two r not scoring at all but r good at slogging which we need later on.

Farhad
July 10, 2010, 08:37 PM
Mahmudullah should switch places with Shakib. Shakib is the type that likes to come in and hit right away. Mahmudullah is an innings builder/reviver. It really is as simple as it sounds...

I dont know why people expect him to play the pinch hitting role. He's never done that well in his life, and I doubt he ever will...

Antora
July 10, 2010, 09:35 PM
Riayd to me never seemed like a class player. He only had that one good series against W.I and yes India... but...
Everytime he comes out to bat, he looks confused, scared and with lack of confidence! It's like he doesn't want to be there at all !! His face always has that '" i'm gonna cry anytime now'" expression and it's just NOT ON! If he is going to bat that low down the order, he better learn to play some shots or go up the order and place shakib down the order so that When there is a batting PP, there will be an '"attacking'" batsmen!
Or simply just drop, and replace him with Nayeem :D ( I like this idea)
Nayeem is a waaay better player than he is. At least Nayeem won't play test during a Batting PP and actually has the capability to play some SHOTS!
not to mention Nayeem can bowl as well, I mean, I would rate Nayeem to be an okay alright allrounder ( as he is classified) , TBH Riayd's bowling isn't any great either. What worse can Nayeem do in that position? Pluys lately Riayd isn't even bowling, so why not have Nayeem instead of him?

I WANT NAYEEM IN THE TEAM :D

:notworthy:

I'll repeat once again Riyad is batting too low, he takes time to settle in, in the past few innings he has come out to bat when we need quick runs immediately, this is not his natural game. If he came out to bat at 5 instead of Shakib, we would have had a bigger total. He is capable of scoring runs quickly but only once he is set, usually after 15-20 balls. We could put him in 5, shakib at 6, and a slogger at 7 (Ashraful, Aftab, Kapali, Shuvogotu, whoever etc.

Didn't he pace that innings to perfection?

He is just struggling in this conditions. I have seen world famous batsmen (time and again) having trouble to cope with early English conditions. That even after touring multiple times. Leave the boy alone.

Situations dictate how to bat and these boys are well aware on how to bat. You blame not firing Riyad but don't say anything to fatai felmu Shakib? Riyad is a perfect #7 for home games. Trust me.

I know he didn't bat accordingly. I don't know why. Because he crushed Indian and Sri Lanka during batting powper-play, and at the end of the innings. He was hitting very well. But then again he was in form then. But what I hated the most today was how he got Mashrafe out by trying to stay off the strike. He should've maned up and faced the last 3 balls. And smack them for 4s. As a batsman he should want to keep the strike. Really upset with that.

Shouldnt he be picked for home series only?

[Sorry didn't watch BD batting] I thought he should have been used with the ball, instead of Ash.

What Mahmudullah is good at is dart bowling that will help while defending something like 280 odd. what Ravindra Jadeja does for India :shh: Yesterday BD needed wickets and Mash went for a gamble with Ash, he's a partnership breaker, so just no harm in trying out. I won't blame him. Still I'd say probably he deserved 2-3 overs in the middle.

I'd prefer a more penetrating part timer like Faisal, given his good averages in FC cricket, and sucky batting by Riyadh these days. :smug:

if Riyad continues to play like this, then its better to place him at 3/4 position. No point of playing him at no 7/8 when most of the time he has to face power play ! rather mushy or jahurul could come handy in later overs !!!

Riyad's not selfish. He's a player who understands his limitations and values his wicket. He takes time to settle in and whe he does, he can score consistently. He has come a long way since debut and he'll continue to improve InshAllah. Loser negativists like Sid need to stay out of his and everybody eleses head.

You are right, nadim, Mahmudullah was playing a bean counter's test cricket with a selfish mind.
And it was so obvious as he did not attempt for any boundaries.
Even Shafiul attempted some boundaries which were stopped.
