With due respect to shakib, I dont think awards within a country matter that much, concerning the top players of that country

What Siddiqur Rahman did is a once in a lifetime thingi from our part of the world. The facilites, the opprtunities, nothing can be compared. This is like Ashraful's 100 against the Aussies but in a bigger scale.

Creation of "Bangla-Wash" - enough to be the best. Though, I would have selected both Shakib and Siddiqur Rahman :)

Siddiqur Rahman should have got it.
Not that Sakib dont deserve it, but our pioneer Golfer literally had a fairy tale year.
He was way off the chart when it came to achievment.

No #1 allrounder
Top 10 test and ODI bowler
Top wicket taker of the year
Best ODI batsman & Bowler of the team
Almost single handedly completing a historic series win despite the absence of key players after being forced to take captaincy.

Memory is a bitch.

exactly, how much Golf can entertain the general people compare to Cricket. Golf is never for public it is more of sports for individuals, the rich ones !!

Well, Siddiqur Rahman deserves appreciation for what he has achieved...but here is the question: just approach any random guy or girl in Bangladeshi city street and ask: "who is Shakib?" and "who is Siddiqur?" The person will stare at you befuddled for the former query, but for latter, he or she will say: "i dont know" That will be the likely case...

Golf may not entertain public as much as cricket. But around the world in another sports there will be Bangladeshi flag flying high. Beside more of our brothers will be making money and getting rich from sports that we never thought would make an impact in our country.

Also don't forget Paul Collingwood has retired which means he will play more golf. We can invite Paul to Bangladesh so he could receive few tips on how to play golf.

I agree. Cricket is one of the most popular sport in BD and anyone who contributes for the progress of it should deserve more applause. Winning series means more attention from the board, more youngsters willing to chose cricket as career etc.

Can't really imagine why people fail to see this.

It was not the "Most Popular Sports Person Category"

it was Best sportsman of the year. So there is no consideration for popularity.

And talking about popularity of sports; if cricket is already popular, then other sports achievements need more recognition to get more attention and public support.

Talking about poor people, they are strugling to arrange their food, they neither play cricket nor golf. The only sports they afford, needs no money to buy any equipment. Just the god gifted bat and balls. Why make them an excuse for Golf and not cricket?

I do appreciate what Siddikur did,but a young man like Sakib who played well in counties,lead the team to a historic Bangla-wash followed by a series win vs Zim,being the top alrounder & highest wicket taker,that asks a lot of hard work & dedicaton.
So it's all good to me.:)

Cricket is more common and is played by thousands (obviously with some changes in the rules aka Gully cricket). And we're not talking about people dying of starvation. Any average joe can't afford to play Golf without proper equipments, ground etc can they? That's what the other guy meant.

Are you saying that being 199<SUP>th</SUP> is better than being 1<SUP>st</SUP>? Shakib is the #1 all-rounder in the world.

I'm pretty sure more people play cricket than Golf around the world. But Golf is more globally recognized as a sport compared to cricket (played in more countries). In any case, this is a unfair comparison. A world ranking of #199 in Golf and #1 all rounder in cricket (both global sports) has no comparison. I would compare Siddiqur winnings to Sonia Mirza of India (first successful pro female south Asian tennis player) who won some tournaments in Asia and the Wimbledon doubles but when playing the Grand Slams or top-50 players she never got very far. It is no doubt a great accomplishment to be ranked highly or win regional tournaments but it is an entirely different matter to maintain #1 spot in the world. If Siddiqur do start getting big accolades in the majors then a proper comparison can be made.

I think part of the high enthusiasm with certain individuals in certain sports stem from lack of context of the success they achieved. I remember Niaz Murshed winning the GM title when I was in elementary. It was a great achievement but with lack of knowledge in world rankings many ppl would compare him to the great chess champions. Then I saw Vishy Anand (an IM back then) beat him in Dhaka and even back then people could see Vishy was a class apart then the rest of the Asian masters.

I didn't know who was Sonia Mirza until an indian lady friend gushed out about her few years back. Learning that she won the Wimbledon Mixed Doubles with Mahesh Bhupati my interest got picked. Then I saw her get annihilated in a Grand Slam and that pretty much put things in context.

first definition of popular "regarded with great favor, approval, or affection especially by the GENEREL public"(google search)...look at the word GENEREL...i am sure you already know but just to remind you "it takes taka 1 lakh(non refundable) to be member of army golf club for army personnel..and taka 8 lakh to be a general public,but you have to have reputed job(like bigshot govt service holder etc).otherwise you cant just start to play there.(this information was quite old,taken frm Prothom alo,sry cant giv the link,anyone can correct me with good source,i ll b happy).so i think its quite clear that GENERAL people cant play golf.no way it can be POPULAR like cricket.There is another way to play golf,to become pro,usually what our country's successful golfers do.one can become a GOLFBOY and continue to play it.i hope now you understand "popularize golf" its really a joke.take care...:)

Clean up your posts. Its really hard to read.

Anyone here play Golf. Its a freaking pain in the a$$. I have never been more frustrated playing a sport as I have playing golf. It requires a lot of concentration.

I would prefer to go by your definition to not to provide any second window of new controversy. Lets look in the context of Golf what popularising mean.

Currently there are about 10 Golf courses in Bangladesh (As Per My knowledge upto 2003) and every club can enroll max 200 members (Excluding casual members) and that's atleast 2/3 times more than the people play compettive cricket in NCL/DPL/CTG League count all. The criteria of membership is only fee, no reputation is necessary for being a member. According to your definition if the sport is popular ( meaning favored/approved/loved(affection)) by the people, many younsters would get interested to take up the game seriously, instead of old people, their children would take the game more seriously. [You must know that a membership in any golf club by an individual automatically earns an associate membership for his entire family (Wife & Children).] So, inspite of having opportunity the younger generation are not playing, because it's not popular. Popularising by your definition doesnt mean that whole country would start playing, but just favor/approve/love. What's the joke in it?

Yes it's true that golf is not a cheap sports like football, or even costlier than cricket at the moment. Cricket is no cheap either. Now then it has been popularied in BD, so scopes are in abundance, which wasn't like this before 99/2000. And when I say popularising golf, doesnt mean that I'm comparing it with cricket. From where do you get that idea? Unless you are a leninist/maoist/socialist of some kind you shouldnt have problem if people who afford to play golf can do well. Golfers are as much the citizens of the country as the other cheap sports professionals are. Why do u think it's a joke? In that case promoting cricket is also a joke, why not promote Hadudu and ludu and stuff like that, because GENERAL people can play it. My friend Cricket was never and is not a general people's game yet in Bangladesh.

Our cricket stadiums or facilities wouldn't earn money, if we were not playing at this level. Golf courses starts earning from day one. Do you have any idea how many foreigners travel to Bangladesh as golf tourists every year? You may be surprised if you research.

My friend, you don't have least idea about how to turn into 'pro golfer'. A caddy/Ball Boy isn't a pro golfer. It's when you play for money, then you are a pro or you are ameture. If you want to play in pro tournaments, you need to play qualifying rounds to qualify for the tournament. There are examples of Caddies becoming pro all over the world, including USA, so there is nothing wrong for a caddy to become Pro. That's not a shortcut for Bangladesh, that's not at all a short cut.

You copied a definition of popularising but you failed to understand it. you have a completely different idea in mind. That's the joke. Golf has the potential to be popular and for your information, you can play golf with green fee on daily basis, without being a member at all. But you need a playing ability cert from a pro/an official handicap doc. If you are novice, every golf course is waiting to provide you training and the money you pay can save some poor families living on those courses (Since you care for poor) then the rest follows. YOU DONT NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO PLAY GOLF IN ANY CLUB IN BANGLADESH. I could walk into courses of Dubai, Ajman, India, Pak with a green fee as well.

Instead of calling anything a joke, it's better that we try to understand it a bit more. Cricket is already in the limelight and any other sports that shows promise/talent needs government encouragement / actions to popularize so that another sports can come up. We missed the opportunity with shooting, Hockey when they were at their pick. I love cricket, but not more than my country. So all the other sports and people also belong to my country and they deserve support when they show promise. You may not like the idea but that was no joke.

A beggar doesnt have time for cricket or golf, He is busy arranging food & shelter, so please dont bring in the economy in everything unjustly. This has become a very very irritating Bangladeshi logic of covering our inabilities, incompetence and corruption for 40 yaers now. It's no joke either.
