জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে টাইগারদের নেতৃত্ব দেবেন সাকিব


ঢাকা: জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে একদিনের ক্রিকেট সিরিজে অলরাউন্ডার সাকিব আল হাসানকে অধিনায়ক করে রোববার ১৫ সদস্যের দল ঘোষণা করেছে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)।

চোট কাটিয়ে দীর্ঘদিন পর দলে ফিরেছেন তামিম ইকবাল। এছাড়া স্কোয়াডে ডাক পেয়েছেন ১৬তম এশিয়ান গেমসে বাংলাদেশকে প্রথমবারের মতো স্বর্ণ পদক জয়ের নেতৃত্ব দেওয়া মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল।

তবে তামিম ও আশরাফুলের দলে ফেরায় কপাল পুড়েছে শাহরিয়ার নাফীসের। কারণ মূল একাদশে জায়গা হয়নি বাঁহাতি এই উদ্বোধনী ব্যাটসম্যানের।

বাংলাদেশ দল: সাকিব আল হাসান (অধিনায়ক), তামিম ইকবাল, ইমরুল কায়েস, জুনায়েদ সিদ্দিক, মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল, রকিবুল হাসান, মাহমুদুল্লাহ রিয়াদ, নাঈম ইসলাম, আব্দুর রাজ্জাক, মাশরাফি বিন মর্তুজা, রুবেল হোসেন, শফিউল ইসলাম, মুশফিকুর রহিম, নাজমুল হোসেন ও সোহরাওয়ার্দী শুভ।

অতিরিক্ত: শাহরিয়ার নাফীস, জহুরুল ইসলাম অমি, সাব্বির রহমান ও সৈয়দ রাসেল।

BCB is on high....in slow pitches they picked 4 seamer(Nazmul is bhua)...Dropped Jahirul Islam for NO REASON....removed Shuvogoto Hom from reserve :floor:

Great Nadim! Thank you!!! What a good news to see Shakib as the captain.

As expected.

But as Nadim points out, I don't see any reason to have 4 seamers in the squad. So the only change I'd have preferred is Nafees included in place of Nazmul Hossain.

And quite relieved to see Shakib given the captaincy. And that clarifies - barring any injury situation, ladies and gentleman, the Iceman will lead Bangladesh in the World Cup.

I think the seamers had been developing well lately under Pont. It is slowly becoming our strength with all the butterfly effect and all ....about Hom, I dont think he has done enough recently to smake the cut....he disappointed even in ASIAD...

Nafees and Omi I am sad about. But again, they had a lot of practice sessions and selecteros/coaches closely followed those sessions....again its a home series and they can be picked anytime.

November 28, 2010, 07:13 AM
I am guessing that Mashrafe may not play all 5 matches. He may be given rest in the last couple of matches. For this reason, Selectors have opted for Shakib as Captain for this Series !!

or, selectors have made up their mind to keep Shakib as Captain for WC as well !!

Probably Pont's idea to get the extra seamer? Anyways, Jahirul being dropped is kind of understandable, but SN? He should've been in the squad.

The good thing is, Iceman is back as skippy, but dunno if it's indeed a good news - hope it won't affect his performance :-|

As far as I know SN has done nothing wrong in his last international series to be dropped from the squad. It is a luxurious decision to bring back Ash ahead of SN who was the second highest scorer of the historic series win.

Two Great thing about this Squad:
- SHAKIB is the captain
- Inclusion of Shabbir Rahman (even as stand by)

*Shabbir can eye Worldcup now!

Two flops about this squad :
-Inclusion of Ash and ZUNAID and removing Jahurul and S.Nafees
- Inclusion of Nazmul removing Shovagotohom (even from stand by)

*I don't get it..what the fffffrench has Zunaid done in ODI's to deserve a place in ODIs? RIDICULOUS

Overall not a bad call..

*Motin will flop...whereas if it was SN..he wouldve scored 100+ as its Zimb. just wanted to say that :D

Sriti durbol na re bhaijaan! Under Pont's supervision, we've shown good signs of progress in our seam bowling department. There's more method to the pacer's madness now - they are getting hands-on coaching on fast bowling tidbits. But that hasn't made the seamers our main strength in bowling, yet. The spinners will dominate, and that's a foregone conclusion. I very much doubt we'd play 3 seamers in our playing XI, so the 3rd one would be a backup anyway. The only reason i can think of is that the selectors are pondering some rest for Mashrafee towards the end of the series and/or of any further injury scare for Mash or any of the other bowlers (Nazmul has also recently recovered from an injury). Having said that, the 4th pacer's spot could've gone to Nafees instead, to bolster the batting department a bit more. Junaid has done well in the past, but is going through a lean patch currently, and Nafees could come in at no. 3 for a couple games.

............. Junaid has done well in the past, but is going through a lean patch currently, and Nafees could come in at no. 3 for a couple games.

sure he has done "well" in the past in ODI's. after 42 matches (includes 1 painful century, and 4 50's) and average of 22.80 with strike rate of 70.40 is WELL. infact its just TOO WELL for the quality of junaid.

Selectors have no valid reason to incluide Junaid in ODI's and drop Jahurul/SN.

if anything, he's done something in test matches. In ODI's and T/20 he is left handed version of Ashraful..atleast Ash gives Eid innings once in a blue moon.

SN's exclusion is a surprise, he has a very good record against Zimbs.
Four pacers are included because Mash is injury prone.

Can't complain about the squad. Feel bad Jahurul got dropped, he's a good looking batsman but was too poor in domestics to be called up. Hope he gets back to form in the DPL. SN also didn't perform too well and got dropped which was understandable. Hope he plays well in the DPL. The 2 that will be on the hot seat for this series is Zunaed and Roqibul. If they don't play well then they should be dropped because we can't afford to have our #3 and #4 struggling. Ash should not play the 1st couple of games. He should play unless Zunaed, Roqibul or Riyad continue to struggle. Lastly, very happy that Shakib is the captain. I was concerned that it will be too much pressure on him but Shakib has a different type of maturity compared to his other teammates so he'll do a great job. Well this is the last series before the WC so wish all the players the best and hope they all perform well.

Congrats to Shakib. I am glad he the captain. I just also heard on the news... they did not select a vice captain. Why not?

Choosing between S Nafees and Imrul is a tough call, specially when Imrul has a world record to beat of highest runs of the year but I would have put him in the 15 men squad and prob make it a 16 men squad :)

I am definitely disappointed. I think I did well in the last series, so I expected to play in the series," rued Nafees, who replaced an injured Tamim against New Zealand against whom he struck an important half-century in the second game, scoring 119 runs in the series.

Chief selector Rafiqul Alam said that Tamim's status as an automatic choice worked against Nafees. "He [Nafees] played well but he didn't do too well in the National Cricket League. Another reason is that Tamim is also our automatic choice, plus we have a settled batsman at No 3 in Junaed Siddiqui," he said.

Nafees however believes there wasn't much connection between his selection and Tamim's return. "I think the selectors can tell you the reason behind my exclusion. I can understand that Tamim is back but it doesn't mean I have to go," he added.

Captaincy 'imposed' on Shakib
Nafees dropped, in comes Ashraful
The Daily Star,November 29, 2010 (http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=164018)

The Bangladesh captaincy for Zimbabwe one-day series has been 'imposed' on Shakib Al-Hasan yesterday. The long-awaited decision could have stretched a bit more had Shakib not budged, as he was reluctant to take up the job.

But Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president AHM Mustafa Kamal convinced Shakib, ending much speculation about the captaincy issue that hung in the air for far too long, yet it remains on a series-to-series basis.

"If you ask me if I'm happy or not, then the answer is no," was Shakib's only reply.

Shakib's appointment as captain however, following his success in the New Zealand series, is perceived as a positive move given Mashrafe Bin Mortaza's injury worries.

"Shakib has been successful so we selected him as captain. Mashrafe is also good and recognised but we decided to keep Mashrafe away from the pressure and burden of captaincy," said BCB chief executive officer Manzur Ahmed.

Also, the system of appointing a captain for only one series is regarded by many as a needless exercise. Manzur also believes that a long-term stint is viable.

"We would also like to do that. It would have been better had we put that into our thinking a bit more but there are some complicacies regarding team combination so we had to go for the series-to-series practice," explained Manzur.

The five-match one-day series against the southern Africans starts on December 1.

BCB announced the 15-member squad that included Tamim Iqbal and Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, both of whom were out due to injury. Tamim returns to the national team after five months while Mashrafe has been given the green signal after he sustained an ankle injury in the first one-dayer against New Zealand last month. Tamim replaces Shahriar Nafees while Jahurul Islam makes way for Mohammad Ashraful and there was no place for Dollar Mahmud and Syed Rasel who were also added to the squad during the New Zealand series.

Ashraful's inclusion and the axe on Nafees stirred a potential hornet's nest as the latter had had a reasonable time against the Kiwis.

"I am definitely disappointed. I think I did well in the last series, so I expected to play in the series," rued Nafees, who replaced an injured Tamim against New Zealand against whom he struck an important half-century in the second game, scoring 119 runs in the series.

Chief selector Rafiqul Alam said that Tamim's status as an automatic choice worked against Nafees. "He [Nafees] played well but he didn't do too well in the National Cricket League. Another reason is that Tamim is also our automatic choice, plus we have a settled batsman at No 3 in Junaed Siddiqui," he said.

Nafees however believes there wasn't much connection between his selection and Tamim's return. "I think the selectors can tell you the reason behind my exclusion. I can understand that Tamim is back but it doesn't mean I have to go," he added.

Ashraful, who was dropped after the England ODIs after a poor run of form, scored 331 runs in the NCL one-dayers and a first-class century over the last two months and Rafiqul believed Ashraful was in-form. "He is among the proven players who is in-form. He scored two hundreds and a couple of fifties," said the former national cricketer.

"If he's not in now, he might miss out on the World Cup," added Rafiqul about the man who had an ordinary time even in the just-concluded Asian Games where Bangladesh won gold in the men's cricket competition.

Rafiqul however could not confirm if Mashrafe would be picked ahead of fast bowlers Rubel Hossain and Shafiul Islam. "We will decide on that later but Mashrafe is a world-class bowler. He is also kind of an automatic choice because now he's fit and getting better," he said.

Squad
Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaed Siddiqui, Mohammad Ashraful, Rokibul Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicketkeeper), Mahmudullah Riyad, Naeem Islam, Abdur Razzak, Sohrawardi Shuvo, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain and Nazmul Hossain.

I think not picking Nafees to play against Zimbabwe is a poor decision. But then again, you can't really drop Zunaid as he did nothing wrong. I think this is actually a great problem for our board in a good way, as we have a pool of players, all who can make the playing XI.

I like him, I like him a lot, but he truth of the matter is, even he has to admit, he struggles a lot against quality pace/seam movement, hence i think why BCB excluded him. so if he plays, He should definitely not be used as an opener, but rather a middle order batsmen. based on my observations, he is very comfortable with spin, but poor against quality pacemen.

Shariar Nafess must have been given chance instead of Junaid Siddique(considering his past record agnst ZIM)
Johirul would've been far more better choice than Rock for main squad...
Dont know what Nazmul is doing in main squad...what is the need of 4th pacer..if you r that much intersted to build a pace-based bowling attack...then go find a pace allrounder..

Can anyone tell me that- Is this squad for full series or first 2/3 matches....is there any chance for reserve players besides injuries in main squad??

i also complain about his attitude sometimes but right now he has the right to be furious bcoz it is really a poor decision to drop him just for the sake of some ncl heroics by roqibul whereas roqibul was a total failure in the last series.

totally agree with u..i am also mad about this..Roqibul really at the moment doesn't deserve a place in the team..SN should have been there...But SN should not have said " I think I did well in the last series, so I expected to play in the series"...lets face it 1 50 in 4 matches in ur home ground..will u call it doing well?..yes he did much better then zunayed and roqibul but lets not compare here with them...i meant to say those days of bd cricket is gone..where 1 50 and u can be sure of a place in the team..

"He [Nafees] played well but he didn't do too well in the National Cricket League. Another reason is that Tamim is also our automatic choice, plus we have a settled batsman at No 3 in Junaed Siddiqui,"

Phew, I believe they are not as dumb as I thought they would be. People kept saying "take NS over JS at #3" after J had one bad series. This guy have been our number one number 3 batsman, ever since Bashar. Aftab, Rajin, Kapali, Ashraful, Nafees, Tushan (or w/e) and many other jokers failed at #3. It's not a easy place to bat, specially not for a lefty.

Seems like sn completely forgot about his ncl contributions. If he had just performed consistently there then he would be there instead of roqibul or zunaed. Shouldn't have been that hard if he did well against NZ. No excuse for not performing in the ncl. However you can make 2 arguments on this case. Roqibul did poorly in the nz series while performing great in the ncl. Sn on the other hand performed solidly against nz but poorly in the ncl. Sn has 1 50 so far and so does Roqib but it took him a lot more matches. Roqibs 50 was against england and in their conditions while sns was against nz was at home. Again selectors put heavy emphasis on the ncl performances so that's why sn got dropped but roqib still stayed on. Well let's see if zunaed and roqib perform and prove the selectors right

You are not looking at the whole picture here. I agree that excluding him over Roquibul was not a good idea but then again this match against Zim is the final preparation for the WC. I think from the begening Nafees was never looked at in the WC team so the selectors are letting the players in the team who they have decided will play for the WC.

BTW, even if ASH performed in the NCL or not, he was always going to be in the final WC team. They could have simply given an excuse like : Ohh we need as much senior players as possible in the team and Ash has the max number of ODI under his belt. I just hope ASH is in form for the first time in his life (with him you can never tell)


About Shakib, I am very happy that he will be the one leading the team. Mash just got back in so he should settle down first. BTW who is our Vice captain?

The more I think about it also the less sense it makes selcting ash. He did well in the ncl true but he's had a horrible year. He has a worse sr then even roqib and an avg of a 19 this year. I don't think he should have made it over sn who performed well against the kiwis. Also not to mention ash's pathetic record against zimbabwe. An avg of only a 21 is not comparable to sn at all.

I think its not about NCL performance. Its the position where they bat. Nafees is an opener. Raqib a middle order batsman.

Selectors picked the players based on positions, it seems. Imrul has been playing excellent cricket for last one and half year. They can't drop him. Zunaed also averaged over 30 at no.3 for last few series (except the NZ series). They can't drop Imrul and Zunaed for him. And Raqib..I think Ash will replace him at no.4.

2.they selected Big Z and Rock because of batting order..Right now we dont have a spare No 3 and NO 4...SN and Johurul are openers..just look at mahmudullah and nayeem..they are struggling at the lower order..selectors didn't wanted make any more dilution in the batting order

I think many people are overreacting here, God forbid ,we lose the first ODI against zimbabwe the next thing you know Shahriar Nafees comes to bat at #3 in the next ODI ;)

and then Shahriar nafees will laugh his evil laugh... but at the same time remark: what am i? BCB's toy?

this is a home series after all, and secondly, BCB has a history of making last minute changes, I remember back in 1999 WC, there was a hiatus over exclusion of Minhazul Abedin nannu, and he was included just before the last minute it appears that he was instrumental towards our success in the world cup :D

I'm glad BCB went with Shakib as the leader...I just hope they never give it back to Mash since he's clearly not the fighter shakib is, and due to his injury issues.

Hom and SN didn't do enough to get picked, Ash did i guess.

Good to see Roman in the standby list, and sad to see Jahirul miss out. Hopefully, the issue will be sorted out before the World Cup...i.e i don't wish anyone to fail, but I do hope that the worst bat out of SN/Junaid/Rock (and even Ash) will get subbed out for Jahirul come the world cup. And then Jahirul will be hungry to prove people wrong. Its a win-win situation for us.

Also based on previous records, I expect Rock to feast on the ZIM bowling.

My prefered line up:

1. SN
2. Tamim
3. Imrul
4. Zunaed
5. Shakib
6. Jahurul
7. Allrounder <ALL rounder>(Naeem/Riyadh/Sabbir/Shuvo)
8. Mashrafe
9. Razzak
10. Shafi
11. Rubel
Nazmul can come in as a replacement of any of the pacers, if they need some rest.

Want SN as an opener to give a quick start at the top. Imrul has good temperament to play as #3. We will have 5 genuine bowlers is the three pacers, Shakib and Razzak. The spinning allrounder can be used based on the pitch. Mashrafe is good at the start, while Rubel and especially Shafi are good death bowlers.

The combination also helps getting rid of out of form guys like Ashraful and Roq. Rahim has to compete with Junaed as a batsman for the batting position #4.

Eshen
November 28, 2010, 03:50 PM
The drama with captaincy is far from over, and it's becoming more disgusting with time. If Mashrafe has any dignity left in him, he should tell the board not to consider him for captaincy in the WC'11.

Good move dropping SN. For me this series is more about getting things right for the World Cup than winning 5-0. SN would have most definetely piled on the runs and then get selected for the main event where he would have inevitably failed.

Although I think Jahirul should not have been dropped he did fall into a comfort zone and hopefully the drop will spark a revival in him.

Mark my word...this series will be the reason for Ash being axed from the WC team.

Ash always flops against weak teams and most of his eid innints came against G8 teams.

I predict:
Naeem will star and win match for us..
Shuvo will get most of the wickets. .
Tamim might score 200 and join Sachin ( ! )

Can't complain about the squad. Feel bad Jahurul got dropped, he's a good looking batsman but was too poor in domestics to be called up. Hope he gets back to form in the DPL. SN also didn't perform too well and got dropped which was understandable. Hope he plays well in the DPL. The 2 that will be on the hot seat for this series is Zunaed and Roqibul. If they don't play well then they should be dropped because we can't afford to have our #3 and #4 struggling. Ash should not play the 1st couple of games. He should play unless Zunaed, Roqibul or Riyad continue to struggle. Lastly, very happy that Shakib is the captain. I was concerned that it will be too much pressure on him but Shakib has a different type of maturity compared to his other teammates so he'll do a great job. Well this is the last series before the WC so wish all the players the best and hope they all perform well.

agreed on the pacers bit...i hope they do rotate them.

but i'm not sure if the Asiad "tonty-tonties" should be the determinant used for our team selection. maybe for a T20 team, but not for ODIs.

at least the BCB were consistent...Ash was selected for NCL performance, and SN was dropped for it. however, Junaid performed equally poorly and should have made way for SN. I do think SN is a better ODI player than Junaid, at the moment. i would have favored tamim, imrul, SN at the top 3 slots. with Rock and Sakib to follow.

but i do hope SN keeps trying. he has a good shot at making the WC squad.

Can't agree with you asad bhai on zunaed. He scored more runs then sn in the ncl with a higher average as well. So in that case zunaed should stay. I'm also disappointed with his stats against nz but he's had a healthy avg of a 34 with a sr of an 84 this year which is solid for a #3 batsman but this series will be crucial for him if he wants to stay in the squad. roqibs under more pressure since he's had a poor avg of a 25 this year and a sr of a 59. The ncl performances was good enough for him to stay but he's gotta score more 50s. Zimababwes attack is pretty weak so this could be a good time for him to find his rhythm back. Also his avg is very strong against them so he should be doing well this series.

Our selectors, perhaps at Jamie's behest, are adopting an Australian mindset: You are allowed considerable leeway before you are dropped. Yes Zunaid has been struggling in the last few releases but he's still one of the guys in the team who has shown he can dig in in the middle of a collapse. Likewise with Raqib. SN of whom I am a huge fan hasn't proved his mettle on that front. I suspect that was part of it.

It's one of the good things that JS has been able to do. Ever since Dav Whatmore left, we finally calmed down with the team shuffling and let the team settle down and bond itself. This current squad of players have been very common. Selections were more consistent. But dropping Jahurul, and regular inclusion of Ash makes me wonder if these things happened by an accident or did JS actually plan it. Or was he part of it at all. I won't be shocked if he wasn't with his "care-free" attitude all the time. Also under him, we shuffled the bowlers a lot, like DW style. But hopefully that settles down with Pont being around.

BTW I always wondered this, the selectors don't want Nafees because he is a opener and wants to keep Rock because he is a middle order batsmen ... Now if a opener plays at number 4 how bad can it get? I mean atleast less balls will be wasted for the same amount of runs. And a batsmens jobs is to provide the team with his batting experience and gather runs. So what seems to be the problem here? Shoudn't a batsmen be able to play at any top 5 position?

liked to see Mash as a captain, but i hope they dunt change it now :)
a little disappointing to see Nafees not making it, he averaged 30 at the last series compared to high to low teens by drama queen.
I am anxious to see Ash play. I know he has been horrible, but just imagine, if he can find back form, we will have the strongest team ever! Because right now our batting is dependent on Tamim and Sakib. Our middle order is very defensive, if Ash can do some slogging it will balance our team. But again, my hopes are not too high! I pray and i think u guys should pray too that our injury master Mash stays healthy and plays good cricket. I hope JS did something about PP because Zim can beat us if we cant use it because they will!

I hope SN doesnt drop out of cricket! He has potential. If ash does bad, than he will be an automatic entry in the world cup. He needs to have patience!

Sakib for captain is a best choice. The team selection also sounds good to me.

ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক
জিম্বাবুয়ে সিরিজের জন্য দল এবং অধিনায়ক নির্বাচন করা নিয়ে চূড়ান্ত নাটক মঞ্চস্থ হয়ে গেল গতকাল মিরপুরে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড অফিসে। কে অধিনায়ক এটা জানার জন্য বারবার বোর্ড সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামালের কাছে ধরনা দিতে হয়েছে সাংবাদিকদের। শেষ পর্যন্ত দল ও অধিনায়ক ঘোষণা করার পর নতুন নির্বাচিত অধিনায়ক সাকিব আল হাসানকেই ডেকে আনলেন এ ব্যাপারে কথা বলার জন্য। সাংবাদিকদের সামনেই বোর্ড সভাপতিকে সাকিব বললেন, 'আপনার সঙ্গে আমার কিছু কথা আছে।' সাংবাদিকরা অধীর আগ্রহ নিয়ে বসেছিলেন বোর্ড প্রেসিডেন্টের সঙ্গে কী কথা হয়েছে সাকিবের তা জানার জন্য। প্রায় দেড় ঘণ্টা পর বের হয়ে সাকিব জানালেন, 'অনিচ্ছার বিরুদ্ধেই অধিনায়কত্ব নিতে হয়েছে তাকে।'
প্রশ্ন :আগেই বলেছিলেন অধিনায়কত্বের ব্যাপারে ইচ্ছা নেই। এখন জিম্বাবুয়ে সিরিজের জন্য আপনি অধিনায়ক, প্রতিক্রিয়া কী?
সাকিব :দায়িত্ব থাকল, ইচ্ছাটা তো আসলে তেমন কিছুই না।
প্রশ্ন :দীর্ঘ সময় ধরে সভাপতির সঙ্গে বৈঠক করলেন, এ বিষয়ে আপনার কী বক্তব্য ছিল?
সাকিব :নরমাল সব কথা হয়েছে, ও রকম কিছু আলাপ হয়নি এগুলো নিয়ে। বললেন অফিসিয়ালি তোমার দল হলো এটা।
প্রশ্ন :সিরিজ বাই সিরিজ এভাবে ক্যাপ্টেন্সি দেওয়া হচ্ছে। আপনি বলেছিলেন একটা সিরিজের জন্য অধিনায়কত্ব নিতে চান না!
সাকিব :আসলে এ নিয়ে এখনও কোনো চিন্তা করিনি। মাত্রই তো সভাপতির রুম থেকে বের হলাম!
প্রশ্ন :এভাবে অধিনায়ক নির্বাচন করায় আপনি কি খুশি?
সাকিব :সত্যি কথা বলতে আমি প্রস্তুত ছিলাম না। আর তেমন কিছু বলার নেই।
প্রশ্ন : অধিনায়কত্ব করবেন কি-না এ সিরিজে। সভাপতির সঙ্গে অধিনায়কত্বের ব্যাপারে একমত হয়ে এলেন?
সাকিব :অধিনায়কত্ব করব এটা এখন নিশ্চিত।
প্রশ্ন : সভাপতির সঙ্গে কথা আছে, বলেছিলেন। কী বলতে চেয়েছিলেন?
সাকিব :এতটুকু যে, আমি মানসিকভাবে প্রস্তুত ছিলাম না। এভাবে চিন্তাও করিনি।
প্রশ্ন :প্রস্তুত না থাকার পরও দীর্ঘ আলাপ করলেন সভাপতির সঙ্গে। কোন বিষয়টা আপনাকে রাজি করাল?
সাকিব :আসলে রাজি করানোর মতো কিছু নয়। ব্যাপারটা এমন যে, এখন অধিনায়কত্ব করতেই হবে।
প্রশ্ন :এটা বাধ্যতামূলক কি-না? আপনার অনিচ্ছায় অধিনায়কত্ব চাপিয়ে দেওয়া হলো?
সাকিব :আসলে এটা নিয়ে চিন্তা করতে হবে। পুরোপুরি বুঝতে পারছি না, বিষয়টা আসলে কী হলো।
প্রশ্ন :অনেকটা অনিশ্চয়তা সত্ত্বেও অধিনায়কত্ব করতে হচ্ছে, এটাকে কী বলবেন।
সাকিব :সত্যি কথা বলতে, ইচ্ছা ছিল এটা বলা যাবে না। আমি কখনও বলতাম না যে আমাকে অধিনায়কত্ব দেন।
প্রশ্ন :কিন্তু কেন রাজি ছিলেন না। কেনই বা মানসিকভাবে প্রস্তুত ছিলেন না।
সাকিব :ও রকম কোনো কারণ নেই। আসলে আমার কাছে যেটা মনে হয়েছে, দলের জন্য ভালো, আমার জন্য ভালো। আমার কাছে মনে হয়েছে বিশ্বকাপ পর্যন্ত অধিনায়কত্ব না করাই আমার জন্য ভালো হবে। এটা আসলে আমার একেবারেই ব্যক্তিগত সিদ্ধান্ত।
প্রশ্ন :আপনি চাননি অধিনায়কত্ব নিতে। কিন্তু এটা একটা গুরুত্বপূর্ণ ব্যাপার। কিন্তু আপনার ওপর চাপিয়ে দেওয়া হয়েছে। আসলে এভাবে ইচ্ছার বিরুদ্ধে অধিনায়কত্ব নেওয়া কতটা যুক্তিযুক্ত মনে হচ্ছে আপনার কাছে।
সাকিব :আসলে প্রস্তুত ছিলাম না এটা ঠিক। কিন্তু যখন অধিনায়কত্ব করব, তখন কেউ দেখবে না যে আমি অধিনায়কত্ব নেওয়ার আগে প্রস্তুত ছিলাম না। এখন আমাদের ভালো করার জন্যই প্রস্তুতি নিতে হবে, সেভাবেই খেলতে হবে। আশা করি খুব বেশি সমস্যা হবে না। এমন কোনো চাপ আসবে না যেগুলোর কারণে কোনো সমস্যায় পড়তে হয়।
প্রশ্ন : অধিনায়কত্বের কারণে আপনার পারফরম্যান্সের ওপর কিংবা দলের ওপর আলাদা কোনো চাপ পড়বে?
সাকিব :সময়ই বলবে। তবে আগের চেয়ে এবার ভালো কিছুও হতে পারে। আবার খারাপও হতে পারে।
প্রশ্ন: অধিনায়ক হিসিবে বলুন, দল কেমন হয়েছে?
সাকিব :আশরাফুলের ফিরে আসাটা অবশ্যই ভালো ব্যাপার। জাতীয় লীগ ও এশিয়ান গেমসে ভালো করেছেন তিনি। এছাড়া আগের দলটিই আছে। শাহরিয়ার নাফীস আসলেই আনলাকি। নিয়মিত পারফরমারকেই জায়গাটা ছেড়ে দিতে হলো তাকে।
প্রশ্ন আপনার প্রয়োজনীয় কোনো পরিবর্তন দরকার ছিল?
সাকিব :আসলে আমি বলব এটাই সেরা দল, বেশ ব্যালান্সড।
প্রশ্ন :আপনাকে যদি বলা হতো আপনি বিশ্বকাপ পর্যন্ত অধিনায়ক। তাহলেও কী বলতেন ইচ্ছা ছিল না?
সাকিব :আসলে নিউজিল্যান্ড সিরিজের সময়ই আমি বলেছিলাম, বিশ্বকাপ পর্যন্ত আমাকে অধিনায়কত্ব না দিলে ভালো হয়। আমি খুশিই হব। আমি চাই আমার খেলার দিকেই বেশি মনোযোগ দিতে।
প্রশ্ন :এটা কী ব্যক্তিগত কারণ থেকে? নাকি অন্য কোনো কারণ থেকে?
সাকিব :একদমই ব্যক্তিগত আর কোনো কারণ নেই।[/বাংলা]

Seems like Shakib is messing up with his reasoning, not a good sign. 'Was not ready'?!? give people a break you lame.

He is smart that is why he is saying it.

Personally I think it would have been better if Mash is fully in form and 100% fit to lead in the world cup. Sakib also knows it would be a huge set back for his career if he leads in the WC and Bangladesh can't able to progress to the next round in home soil. That is why he does not want the captaincy before the WC.

Anyway, this is the scenario we have to deal with because of Mash's injury.

Great and a good decision.

Shakib knows, even if he says NO, the captaincy will come towards him. I think Shakib was just trying to be too modest about captaincy.

Shakib did not want to lead -the only reason behind this is Mashrafee. He did not want to hurt Mashrafee. But Shakib needs to be a bit strong here. Team should come first, nothing else, no emotion, no respect or honour.

Best team should play for the country and by so doing if we have to sacrifice anything then we should do it. If we think that Mahsrafee will get hurt if cannot lead the side in the WC then it's rubbish. Best man should lead, best men should be in the side.

Mash has been out of form and the team for more than a year and I am going to make him captain? No man!

In professional world sometimes you have to take tough decisions, you have to be ruthless at times. We need to realize these things. More quickly we get this the better it will get.

Remember- no emotion but passion!

The ony reason he doesn't want to be cap is because he wants to concentrate better on his own game which is quite understandable.
