No Alok, Dollar and Aftab..Rokibul is still there BCB L-)

Alok, Dollar, and Aftab? Did you see how bad Aftab did in the last domestic match? A 27 ball 8 doesn't warrant a selection and then Dollar's economy was way too high even though he picked up 3 wickets last match..let Alok score heavily 1st in domestics before he's even considered..overall I believe it's a good squad..we should pick Shuvagoto for this tour for sure..see what he can offer for us..

but to be honest, i want him in the team.

why do they keep dropping ashraful and add him again in the next series. Either leave him out of the team for a while or just keep him in the team forever. Atleast be consistent about it.

no surprises and I wasn't expecting any with this likely being the final series before the WC.

I'll hold off on any Ash comments before the list is trimmed to 14/15. Nothing personal against him but the team is better off at the moment without him. But if he can come back in the future with a new outlook and level of consistancy thats always welcome.

The body language between the players as a team in the NZ series was great. I'm curious if no Ash/no Mash/no Tamim was a factor or not.

Nadim
October 25, 2010, 11:32 AM
from this list we should drop Rok, Riyad, Shahdat, Zunaid/Ashraful and Sayed Rassel.

shuvogoto is a must for this series.

And pls give nayeem a full series rather than giving him one match per series:mad: Enough with this Mulla guy

same squad.......
I am a little sad to see Niazumuddin not making it. He would have been an ideal finisher. But other than that, its a good squad. If they are planning with these 30 for ZIM series, i would hope that they keep it the same for the Worldcup. I dunt want any new players butting in with little confidence. I think the final 14 should be,
Sakib, Tamim, Mash, Shafi, Razzaq, Mushy, Rubel, Shuvo, Shuvogoto, Jahirul, Imrul, Nafees, Naeem, Junayed.

However, they will probably include Roqibul, Ash in place of Jahirul and Shuvogoto which would suck!!! Because it will be like replacing consistent players with inconsistent ones!

Selectors call 20 for Zim series
Sports ReporterThe national selectors announced a 20-member preliminary squad on Monday for the one-day series against Zimbabwe in December this year.

Chief selector Rafiqul Alam said that they picked the squad keeping the World Cup in mind.

Former national skipper Mohammad Ashraful, who was dropped for the recently concluded one-day series against New Zealand, has been drafted into the side while top-order batsman Shuvagoto Hom was the only uncapped player in the list.

"We chose the players not only keeping the Zimbabwe tour but also the World Cup in mind. We didn't make any major changes as we focused on the players who were in our consideration for the last two years," said Rafiqul.

The training camp for the ODI series, which will kick off on December 1 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, will start on October 31 and the selected players will not be available for their respective divisional teams for the ongoing National Cricket League (NCL) after the third round.

The NCL third round will take place on October 29.

SQUAD

Shakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Shahriar Nafees, Junaed Siddiqui, Rokibul Hassan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Sohrawordi Shuvo, Naeem Islam, Jahirul Islam, Syed Rasel, Nazmul Hossain, Mohammad Ashraful, Shahadat Hossain, Shuvagoto Hom

Mortaza in my Honest opinion, isn't brainless. injury prone YES!
Hearty Cricketer, YES!

he has many good performances with both ball and bat in the past against challenging oppositions at challenging times.

About Ashraful, the less i talk about him the better....
although I truly enjoyed his last(possibly last ever) blitzkrieg luckyish 50 against the Pakis in the T20 World cup. ooooooh!!! we almost won it too..oh well, Our Bowling cost us the match!

October 25, 2010, 06:41 PM
People have to realize one thing: in countries like England, Australlia, Sri Lanka, India, South Africa many quality cricketers fail to make the national team due to a lack of need in that particular department in the Main XI. I mean how many guys can replace Jayasuriya, Pieterson, Ponting, Hayden?

Bangladesh should progress if not this year, or the next year, or the year after that, in the same league as these teams soon!

in these above mentioned countries, many domestic players fail to make the cut, just because the national team is too good to be replaced. Bangladesh should strive for this quality very very soon, where try =>hit and miss idelogy is vanquished from the mindset of the selectors and the cricket culture and only winners and only winners get admitted into the national team.

Period.

October 25, 2010, 06:53 PM
no surprises.

Eventually XI will look like this out of 16 players...

1. Tamim
2. Kayes
3. Jahurul / Raqibul
4. Junaid / Ash /SN
5. Shakib (VC)
6. Mushfiqur (WKT)
7. Mahmudullah
8. Shuvo/ Naeem
9. Mashrafe (Captain)
10. Razzak
11. Rubel/ Shafiul

October 25, 2010, 07:51 PM
Why would you drop Zunaid from #3 to #4. If Jahurul should play, he should play at 4 instead of Rock. And Rock or Jahurul should not bat at 3. And why would you have SN/Ash at 4? Why would you alternate Rubel and Shafiul? They both deserve to be in the team after the way they went during NZ tour.

Why would you drop Zunaid from #3 to #4. If Jahurul should play, he should play at 4 instead of Rock. And Rock or Jahurul should not bat at 3.
And why would you have SN/Ash at 4?

Zunaid is very tentative against Pace bowling. IMO, he is perfect for no.4. Both Jahurul and Raqibul plays quite slow beginning of their innings. So, if either Tamim or Kayes got out early, then Jahurul / Raqibul (i really hope that Jahurul gets chance to play) can spend sometime before losing another wicket in terms of Junaid at no 3. Same goes for Ash.


Why would you alternate Rubel and Shafiul? They both deserve to be in the team after the way they went during NZ tour.

I dnt think, BD will play with 3 pacers. They will opt for 2 pacers. So, if Mash plays, then you have to chose from either Rubel or Shafiul. However, if Mash does not play, then the chances of playing both Rubel and Shafiul is very high.

I like this boy very much. Actually I like his no nonsense attitude. I would give him any position he wants (had I that kind of power) and of course the gloves as well.
+++
Kisu supporters and selectors asey jara current affairs shomporkey janen na. For example: Ash's 2010 ODI SR is less than Rakibul. Avearge is 19 whereas, Rakibul has 26 or so. And then there is the foolish outs we have seen over 200 times (All three formats) at least.

Imagine that!! Is that possible? I mean we are talking about Rakibul here who bores the heck out of everyone. Even Mostafa Kamal.

The only thing Ash needs is a bou. May be that would change his ever sliding average to an upward curve. Babu Bangla Koi geli ray? Thada (ram thada) pora ekhono bondho hoi nai.
+++
As for the team, Junaid needs a lesson. Sit him out and get SN there. Enough with the frikish outs and no responsible innings.
+++
Actually all of those who played in the last series and did worse than their career average needs a BIG WARNING. Mushi, Riyad, Junaid and Rakibul. We should have the depth to swap with quality player.

I feel like Mashrafe is becoming a burden to our team. I don't doubt how good a bowler he is. Definitely the best bowler in our short history playing cricket at the highest level. I really don't, but if he's gonna be on and off on our team like this, then it can really be bad for developing bowlers who are always showing their mettle (Nazmul etc). If your gonna keep calling Mash up, I really don't think even considering him for captaincy is smart.

I am also feeling the same way, and may be Mash also started to feel the same way. Coming Zimbo series will be crucial for him, if he want to be in the WC team. He must have to be fit and perform much better, its been more than a year since he performed any good.

Have to agree with that..he's just getting too injured nowadays..he's gonna lose a lot of pace now and with the rise of Shafiul and Rubel who have a lot more pace and variations, I see it tough for him to even find a spot now..he's been a good bowler for us but time has come where he could be left out of the squad soon..it happened to Rasel so why not to Mash? After the England win I have to admit that I wanted him to be captain but now Shakib lead the team to a whitewash and you have Mushy who can lead the team as well so Mash should worry now about getting healthy and trying to be a decent bowler again..

Mashrafi needs to work on his batting... with reduced pace and the improvement of Shafiul and Rubel, Mash's place simply as a bowler is not looking too solid.. but couple of years ago he was in great batting form... remember him hitting 5 sixes against India... He needs to get that big hitting form back... then we will have some fire power at the death...

What has he done since coming back from ICL??

Couple of :50:'s here and there is not enough to be in the BANGLADESH team!!!

Plus, his bowling sucks!!! so far his econ rate 6+ in NCL.

Some people are born for big occassions; Kapali is one such player. He can lift his game against tough opponents. I like to see him at # 7. He is not as worthless as Mullah/Nayeem/Rok in ODIs.

We need alok in the place of rokibul. Good to see Ash back. He'll be shakib's trump card in the wc if shkb is the cap. Rokibul..i won't take him even in my para team,my para batsmen are far more talented from this bloke. Hell...even i'll be happy to see Rajin, nafis iqbal, or even sanuwar(janowar) instead of this dumb retarded(or retiring?) idiot! Why isnt alok in his place? Ugghh..mejajtai kharap hoe gelo..

Mash can still be economical, but he is no longer a strike bowler that he was. The man can definitely hit.

I am not sold on Kapali, but if BD is ahead 3-0, it would be worthwhile to try out some players, including the indomitable Alok Kapali.

Ashraful Shakib's trump card? He is more likely to be Chigumbura's secret weapon. Until my Ash-infatuation broke last year, I used to have high hopes for him. He has the best eye in the team and when he is on, awesome footwork/stroke. However, he has established that talent alone does not a player make.

Rock should be out. I can understand his role as an inning stabilizer, but he is not getting runs and wasting valuable deliveries. He is worth less than a player's sneakers.

I was wondering, why people[not only on BC, in general] have a fascination with Alok? He has done almost nothing in international arena, we talk about Ashraful's average being abysmal, Alok averages 17.69 and 19.83 in tests and ODIs. and his SR of 68.78 is 2 more than the ever so hated Imrul Kayes' SR.

Unless we can get past the love for these 'flashy' players and give chance to 'boring' players like Imrul, Raqibul, Junaid we will be chasing stability in batting.

Did you just say Ash has awesome footwork? :D
He has very good hand eye coordination & that's that.

Actually, in his best innings, he did use footwork, quite adeptly. Relying on hand-eye coordination too heavily was one of the things that led to his downfall.

Well we considered Asspoo as the bradman of our cricket for almost 10 years. Kapali averages only 2 runs less, so maybe he is not the bradman. Maybe the Sachin Tendulkar of our cricket?

Sorry but footwork is something that comes to a player naturally 'if' he really has that skill. Besides Ash's best innings were always built on hand eye coordination & a bit of luck.

based on stats alok kapali doesn't deserve a chance.... but people still believe in him because people remember his good knocks...and those knocks are some of the most stylish display of batting second to only Tamim...

if the boring players actually provided stability...nobody would actually complain...the fact is they don't... I wouldnt consider Imrul in this list because he has earned his spot in the team... but Raquibul and Junaid how can u call them consistent? they are as inconsistent as any of the flashy players

I disagree. Footwork doesn't just come to you naturally, especially when you're out of form. When in form, Ashraful is absolutely perfect technically, footwork and all, and anyone who denies that really needs to gain a better understanding of batting. His best innings' were not simply based on luck and coordination. Do give credit where it's due.

Alok got 65 games, with 6 50+ knocks, if you are willing to wait 10 games to get one 50+ innings, which might or might not win you a game, then we are not on the same line and arguing would be waste of time.
Instead, have a look at Junaid's average since last January[in tests] 33.31 (http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/55946.html?class=1;spanmin1=04+Jan+2009;spanval1=s pan;template=results;type=allround) and 25.21 (http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/55946.html?class=2;spanmin1=04+Jan+2009;spanval1=s pan;template=results;type=allround) in ODIs.


Raqibul has an average of 30.26 (http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/56093.html?class=2;spanmin1=26+jan+2009;spanval1=s pan;template=results;type=allround) since January 2009, he has played only 4 tests in that period with an average of 22.5. So every game Junaid is scoring 16 more runs than Kapali in tests and 7 more in ODI and Raqibul is scoring 13 more in ODIs and 5 more in tests. Still if you are looking for the flashy players, go ahead, search that one win in every 15 games.

luck??? Cricket isnt all about luck?? Without luck do you think any player will be able to score 50 run?? Lets talk about shakibs last 100.. In that innings 3-4 time shakib got edge or mistime the ball and were in air but found no one... Thats not luck?? I think almost 80% big innings in cricket played by the help of this kind of luck... Or if u count drop catch as luck.. I cant remember any innings of ash except 62 vs Wi in t20 wc 07.. Thats also doesnot matter i think... In last 6 months almost every big innings of tendulkar, his catch got dropped, sometime several catches in an innings...
Note: sorry if their any grammatical mistake.. :p

However, chanceless innings are a joy to behold, were you to be so lucky. Every great batsman has played a few of these.

His real problem is lapse in concentration. He is always distracted by something except those times when he does go on with the proper intention to play good cricket.
