View Full Version : The Official Alok Kapali Thread

Alok Kapali is, undoubtedly, one of the most gifted cricketers that have graced our cricket. For many a reason -both known and unknown- he hasn't done any justice to his immense talent so far. But, I firmly believe Alok will shine, Insha Allah. He is simply too good not to. No sight better than an on-song Alok Kapali. So much class and elegance.

Alok is very similar in many regards to enigmatic Mr. Mohammad Ashraful Matin. They are both monstrously talented and equally fragile in mental fortitude. In addressing and conquering this mammoth setback lies the ultimate test of character. With a little bit of good fortune and great dedication Alok will rise to great hight and so will Ashraful. Age is still on their side.

I remember back in 2002 Champions Trophy how he dug out against the then invincibles Aus, but no one knew him back then.....in 2008 people then realized why we 'used' to talk about him......leaving the ind bowling attack virtually toothless in Karachi.....yes Bancricfan....sad, but these cricketersrom the previous lot havent been able to transform that potential....a completely different case with the current bunch we've got.......hopefully, they'll turn over a new leaf sooner rather than later

Right on. Alok Kapali hasn't done ANYTHING in my eyes that lets him have a thread like this. One ODI century against the Indian bowling attack in a complete batting pitch means nothing.

Official threads should be for players who have interesting lives outside of cricket and are constantly in the news. So in my view only Shakib, Mashrafe, Tamim, Ashraful and maybe Razzak deserve their own threads.

But since it has been opened I'd like to give kudos to Alok for his excellent unbeaten knock of 60-odd off some 30 balls against MSC. If he can do that more often and regularly chip in with 30s at more than a run a ball he should definitely be considered ahead of Naeem and Riyad while Shabbir and Nasir keep developing.

absolutely agreed brother..he dont deserve an official thread ,no way..i strongly believe that he has serious commitment issue..yes its true that he is a "gifted,promising,talented" blah blah blah, but nothing can take away the fact that he has no commitment,no seriousness when it comes playing for the country.I think after ashraful he has given most chance even though he had no form whatsoever.Look at Collingwood,he never tagged as talented.But its his seriousness,fighting spirit that had brought him so far.Give chance alok his team..see he will act like he just "deserve" this and waste it very firmly..rather i would like to see Sabbir...(as a twelfth man of course,every player should carry water at least for six months before playing fr the country.:lol:....

Very elegant player... too bad he left for ICL just after scoring that brilliantly paced century against India in the Asia Cup... Now the way back to the national side will be as hard as ever considering so many regular performers are waiting in line... Personally I would love to see him and also Nazimuddin given a chance at least in the T-20 side... in place of Rockibul and Kayes....

Kapali has to be in the upcoming worldcup, bdesh need a good finisher/hitter down the order who can play quickfire innings facing less-balls! Mahmudullah and "chokka" naeem are both pathetic at it down the order. if kapali does get included i belive he will come great! since 2k8 he has matured as a player, he is a much better confident player now; he has much more better self-belief now. u all seen/saw kapali has showd in icl; he's a changed player after icl experience and success. Bcb need to think abit more wise!

Alok's scores so far in the DPL has been 50(60), 1(6), 2(10), 0(1)*, 63(35) which averages out to a 29 with a SR of a 113.7. Don't know what he scored in the Jan 5th game so didn't include that. My problem with that is he's still proving to be inconsistent in his scores which has always been my knock against him. Ya he's a very talented batsman who looks so good when on song and has good qualities but he's got to be more consistent. An average of a 29 should not get him in to the national team for the WC.

Stats can be deciving...he is batting lower down the order...either when team is in trouble or needs some quick runs....
He is a match winner, we dont have too many of them in our bd team...

When did Alok become a match winner? I'm not opposing Alok's inclusion to the team, but terming him as a match winner is not correct. Did he help BD win any match against a G8 team singlehandedly like Ash & you know who? And if you are talking about domestic then Riyad is also a match winner, just so you know.

Alok isnt a top order batsman, he is a very inconsistent one if he is. The reason why he should be in the squad because of his Power hitting. We done need him to score 40-50 runs playing 70-80 balls. Naeem and Mahmdudullah does a great job there bringing the team down. We need someone that can play a solid 5 over PP and slog the rest. Ash is a prospect, However, confidence is something that is totally destoyed inside him. So alok would be the first choice.

and guys, this is a forum where we talk about Bangladesh cricket and about the players. There is nothing wrong with opening a thread for a player who is not in main XI. How many Bengali players have scored a century in T20??? I dunt remember any in any competitive competition. He is very effective against India too. No i am not saying from that one century but the ICL too. He played against the Indian players and i think he understood some of their playing styles.

For as long as Alok had hope for playing in the IPL, he showed no interest to make a comeback. Alok's agent failed to get a team to pick him. When there was hope, Alok was unable to make himself available for the national team, even after the ICL pardon. Once the IPL hopes are dashed, he's been trying to nudge his way in.

Unfortunately, his form left him.

Alok hasnt yet shown the determination and desire to get back into the team. Look at Shahriar Nafees, the guy falls but keeps coming back again and again. Alok in our team will be a huge asset, but for me what comes before talent, is the desire to win, the desire to fight, the desire to represent your country. Does Alok have that? I am not so sure.

Speculating nothing here.

Perhaps we can follow our favorite cricketers a little more closely.

Alok and one other traitor bad mouthed Bangladesh cricket and BCB the most harshly at the time they deserted our team for ICL.

After the ICL fell apart, as you might remember, cricketers like Aftab and SN were openly remorseful. Alok's agent tried to place him in an ICL team. Alok was pretty confident of getting an outright offer away from the bidding . He also had several opportunities to get back to the side by playing BD-A and warm-up matches. He did not, declined due to one excuse or another.

Speculating here:

Alok did not get an IPL deal - a safe speculation, would you say?
Now he is trying to get back in the side - his second preference - safe speculation?

As far as I recall, when Alok mentioned the ICL offers to Rafiqul Alam, he then said that to do what is good for him because Alok does not have much chance in the national team.. No other nation punished their players more than BCB has done and with the result we lost prospective players earlier than we did.

And some of you guys, get over ICL.. BCB has forgotten about it, BCCI forgot about, heck even Kapil Dev has moved past it and some of you are still holding on to it like your bed time winnie the pooh..

You are mixing up ICL with IPL here. The ICL "rebels" abandoned our team en-mass, if you can remember, the biggest blow taken by our cricket.

Sorry brother Billah I couldn't disagree with you more vehemently on this. And, frankly, am somewhat shocked and disappointed that a seasoned and esteemed member like your good self will tarnish the integrity of an individual. The mere crime of being "the most outspoken against BCB" most definitly doesn't warrant such scathing attack or even defamation.

What Dhiman said was very stupid and irresponsible, indeed. But, he was very young and most of our players are not the sharpest tools in the box anyway. Perhaps, we could extend the benifit of doubt to them.

I, too, don't think much of these IPL/ICL events. But thats where the money is. That is the reality. Money-is-not-all maxim has long disappeared from most cultures. That is another sad reality. "Money doesn't talk; money swears", said Bob Dylan. But most couldn't care less.

Alok's ungrateful behavior really hurt many cricket fans, I still don't want SN anywhere near our national team. In the least, SN and Aftab have demonstrated that they were sorry, they made mistakes and were eager to get back in the national side. Alok was simply holding onto alternative hopes.

Why are you so mad Zee vai

Why I am so mad? Gee let's see! I've been using cmd.exe more and more lately, and it's driving me nuts. I was spoiled for years with Apple's Terminal.app without even knowing it. It just seemed like the way a command line environment should work on a modern operating system. It's not the things like "dir" instead of "ls" that drive me crazy. It's not even the difference in how wildcards are handled. It's the UI of the environment hosting the shell!!!! [On Windows, are there different terms for the UI part (like Terminal.app) vs. the shell part (like tcsh, bash, etc)?!!?] Windows uses the Control key for shortcuts while the Mac has the Command key for shortcuts! So, the Mac can continue to use Command-C for copy without interfering with Control-C in the shell!!! But, this isn't so easy on Windows since Control-C is used for copy, but also needs to be used in the shell!!

So let me ask YOU Habib: how come YOU are the one wearing that smiley face and not as mad as me?

Anyway, the way you are telling all the stories like Alok and his agent pursuing IPL contract, then ALok foul mouthing against BD all these without any authentic source doesn't make your statements any valid unless you prove it. You don't like Alok thats fine with me, everyone has right to like or dislike someone but talking own made statement to bring down someone doesn't justify any credit or fairness, sounds more like golabaji to me. I will be delighted to have some real sources provided by you which you brought allegation against ALok.

Ki ar kora, Gobore-o valo saar hoy bhaijaan,
Anyway, the way you are telling all the stories like Alok and his agent pursuing IPL contract, then ALok foul mouthing against BD all these without any authentic source doesn't make your statements any valid unless you prove it.

You are assuming here that I don't like Alok. Assumptions will always make an a$$ out of you. You also assumed that for some God for saken reason, I have to "prove" something to you. Wrong again. I'm sorry to inform you, I can't help you if you are so poorly informed about our cricketers. I try to stay in-touch and on top of information about these boys. I wish I had the time or temperament to help fill this huge information void of yours, but I'm already wasting my time responding to this. Try reading. In about 6 months you will catch up also. Until then, please don't try to educate me. Thanks.

You don't like Alok thats fine with me, everyone has right to like or dislike someone but talking own made statement to bring down someone doesn't justify any credit or fairness, sounds more like golabaji to me. I will be delighted to have some real sources provided by you which you brought allegation against ALok.

Alok is a traitor
He is not focused on playing for our national team
He has his focus elsewhere

The above is information, unfortunately for Alok. As for your knowledge gap, please read the first part of my post. Actually, this post of yours qualifies as golabaji. Once you start thinking objectively, try answering this question to yourself: What is Billah's benefit with this "smear campaign" against my Alok?

As I say everyone has right to like or dislike someone Billah bai, I know you for long time in this forum and I like your posts but this post was bit arbitrary to me, no offense !!

Once again, your a$$umption that I don't like Alok(as a cricketer) is simply baseless. I have been following the careers of these boys from day one. Fact is, Alok gave it all away at the worst possible time. I still wish him all the best.

My posts are not based on my opinion, they are based on facts only. Your posts are based on your opinion, thus they are biased, and are unnecessarily attacking me. I am not the subject of this thread here, Alok is. You might want to try to understand it.

From what I recall it wasn't Alok but Shahriar Nafees and Dhiman Ghosh who were the least remorseful of their decisions. Didn't SN claim on the some show that ICL was the best thing to happen to him? Not that I support any of the ICL recruits but I remember Alok's reasons were the most valid. Both SN and Aftab where regulars in the side, SN even lied to BCB about having an exam to skip the Australia tour whereas actually he was negotiating with the ICL. Alok on the other hand was snubbed when it came to handing out contracts and I also remember reading somewhere that after the death of Alok's father some BCB official told him 'ma babar chinta niye cricket khela jabe na.' after he asked for some time off.

What does he exactly mean when he says, "ashole jatio dole khelte thakle kaj ta shohoj hoye jai keu ar proshno tole na, o ar khelte parbe ki na?" No one told you to leave Alok, or no one kicked you out. From what I remember he just made his return into the nation team, and he hit that hundred against India in the Asia Cup. I'm pretty sure he was also part of the squad that went to Australia. Had he stayed I'm sure he would have gotten plenty more chances. Since he came back what has he done to earn a call up? At least Aftab and SN can say that we were one of the leading run scorer in the last year's DPL, what's his reason?

Personally I was very mad when the players had left for the ICL and at their comments. I quickly became critics of them. Now though I'm not mad anymore. I feel that this was the past and as young players they were just excited at the prospect of making big money. If they can help out our cricket then they should be considered even though they caused trouble. I'm sure all these players realize the big mistake in leaving. The thing is though they have to perform in domestics first before they get a look in the national team.

Out of all the ICL players SN and Nazim have been the most consistent out of the ICL lot. Alok has probably been the most inconsistent. Even Aftab was consistent in the DPL last year but Alok has failed to even do that. My question is why should he get a chance if he can't top the charts in our domestic leagues? Knowing Alok's talent he should be performing very well in domestics. On top of that, he bailed out of the A team twice. Once for family reasons which I understand but he didn't really have a reason the other time. Alok in my opinion should go through the A team 1st before he gets considered in the national team.

i believe Alok can do the job...he scored a century against Zaheer, Harbhajan and co so I believe he can be that powerhitter at 7....

Good post. I believe Alok can do that, too, and more. But his recent DPL form hasn't been anything extra-ordinary, so far. I cannot fathom why he is playing in the late middle order for Gazi. And how Naeem should bat before Alok?!!

Anyhow, I think all the World Cup hopefuls will play four more matches in the DPL. Alok must score at least two big scores, say, 60 plus (given his batting position) with good Strike Rate. Otherwise, I won't be disappointed if he gets the chop from the 23 as Riyad is getting into some sort of form, albeit, with very poor SR.

But, I would not like to see Naeem anywhere near the WC squad. I would rather prefer Sabbir.

Even Shabbir is playing and averaging better than Alok in the ongoing Premere league.......To get a place he needs to fight out with Nayeem, Riyad...both of whom are performing way better than him at the moment...Alok does not have any proven glorious records in last 2 years in the international level....

Just beacuse he had a few good innings in old old days...does not mean that he deserves a place in current XV.

And this is exactly what happens whenever ther is a discussion on Alok Kapali or Ashraful. These two players will always draw fights, arguments, passion and all sorts of things that are secondary in nature than what the thread was all about to begin with...

Alok Kapali has less than 5% chance being in the 15 and less than 1% chance playing in the final team unless Riad/Naem fails. Neither our selectors nor our captain really has the apetitite or boldness of selecting a player like Alok Kapali at this moment. Its easier to select Ashraful than ALok.

I personally wish he scores more runs and becomes a consistent performer, dominates the tables and allows his NCL team win games and gets selected when there are more clamours about him like what happened to Nannu for the 1999 world cup, Bashar for the test cricket and Rafique during the 2007 world cups. I don't want Alok to come to the picture only for 2 matches like Sajidul, Dolar, Dickens etc. It just doesnt help our cricket much..

Nayeem and Riyad may be doing better in NCl/DPL. Question is in which positions and with what SR. An inform AK & Ash could be ideal to utilize the Batting PP & slog overs. We needed Nayeem/Riad, when our Top orer was sure failure. But things have changed. We don't need so stable players in 40-50th over, we need players who can really go after bowling at that stage.

Ahem, Nayeem's nickname is "Chokka Nayeem".

As for Riyad, well, he's got what it takes to go after the bowling in the late overs. He hits cleanly with plenty of power. Unfortunately, he's got this syndrome since his maiden Test century in Hamilton - he waits for the bad ball. And he's using this habit in the ODI format.

At times it seems he is using psychic power to have the bowler deliver half volleys to him. He also shows disappointment when he is not getting enough loose deliveries. In this IPL era of cricket, you've got to convert as many deliveries to runs as possible. He has got the reach and strength, he needs to bring more pro-active footwork in his ODI style to convert.

I think this an area where he might be behind Alok. Alok is using slog sweeps to good effect for converting otherwise attacking deliveries into runs. The biggest negative for Alok is his lack of international matches for a long time. If they pick him, he will need to play the warm up matches.

I don't think Alok will be picked, but stranger things have happened.

BKSP-GAZI TANK
The home side struggled in the 46-overs-a-side affair, being bowled out for 121 in 40.4 overs.

Only the impressive Asif Ahmed made 44 off 61 balls as the Gazi Tank spinners, particularly Sanjamul Islam, dominated. The left-arm spinner took four wickets for 20 while Alok Kapali picked up two wickets for just three runs.

The Sylhet all-rounder also shone with the bat, ending up with an unbeaten 39 off 74 balls with the help of a six and three boundaries as Gazi Tank wrapped up the chase in 39 overs.


SCORES IN BRIEF

SURJO TARUN: 152-9 in 50 overs (Devendra 32, Asif 32; Forhad 4-15, Shafiul 2-40)

OLD DOHS: 155-0 in 20.1 overs (Jamshed 80 not out, Omar 55 not out)

Result: Old DOHS won by 10 wickets.

CCS: 263-6 in 48 overs (Milon 74 not out, Amit 50; Abbas 3-44)

DOLESHWAR: 243-8 in 48 overs (Nadif 85, Sumon 35; Bashar 3-39, Suleiman 2-43)

Result: CCS won by 20 runs.

BKSP: 121 all out in 40.4 overs (Asif 44, Liton 14; Sanjamul 4-20)

GAZI TANK: 125-4 in 39 overs (Kapali 39 not out, Naeem 26 not out; Soumya 2-17)

Result: Gazi Tank won by six wickets.

Alok's problem is he fails to deliver and he's not actually a very good spinner.

However, he does have talent and I suspect the only reason why he is still in the mix is because siddons saw something in him in that ODI against India a couple of years ago (where he scored a hundred) and thinks this guy could be something special.

Kapali's domestic form has been at best mediocre and at worst woeful, yet he is still included in the training squad, that must be because someone in a position of influence fancies he can do something different.

I think he could make the final 15, though he doesn't deserve to on domestic form alone...

I think alok could potentially be a perfect finisher we need to start getting closer to 300 batting first because we all ways get good starts with tamim and if alok comes out smashing the ball all over the park it could be a match winning innings, I don't see riyad or Nayeem being able to offer that, it's worth taking the risk, oh and becuase my name is ashraful1 doesn't mean I'm his biggest fan lol.

We would not have needed to relinquish this debate on Alok, if either Riyad or Naeem would have been able to score at run a ball batting at 7 or 8, let alone at Kieron Pollard-ish strike rates. The problem is it is not happening and since I am not convinced by all the runs scored by Riyad in the DPL batting at no 5 with mid sixties strike rate, yes I would gamble in having any 2 of Ash, Alok & Sabbir in my final 15.

Alok Kapli has got his FC campaign off to a good start. Scored 27 and 153 against Dhaka with some quality bowlers.

Now, baba Alok, keep making big hundreds and force yourself into the Test side. There are places up for grab. And, you need to score more 50s regularly as you have an appalling SIXTEEN 50s from 150 FC innings! Get that average around 35 asap.

Not sure, Alok could have been the top scorer for us in this WC but i believe he could have atleast helped the team to post something better than these mediocre 58 and 78

agreed so do our entire team and all the players since I've seen the cricket of our country. We supporter are too overratetd and me too!! the point is we create hype we jump too soon into conclusion then we decide things too soon so yes I'm overrated too, so do you !! ANd heck Kapali, Ashrafool,Tamim, Shakib all are overrated !!

Because of this overrated stuff we are screwing ourself every worldcup by bringing overrated new ones and screwing up in the same overrated recycle.. and staying overrated.. we are so overrated that we never have a settled team because we overrate our players and keep changing overratedly!!which will never settle down our team into a mature phase !!

Alok has had an impressive NCL this season. He has scored 358 runs from 4 innings at 89.50. He also took 7 wickets @ 31.57.

Its a shame that Alok only got just THREE FC matches this season! BCB!

Thats remarkable........ Alok is workinh hard and it is paying off. My request to BCB, give him some time. He is not a rookie, you know he has experience, just need to be patient like they were with Nafees. With Alok and Nafees in the squad, we will have that experience and variety we were missing

Good to see Alok doing well in the NCL. He should be given an extended run in the team. The Australia match showed he's still rusty at the international level. It's normal though, SN is still not up to scratch with his batting and he's gotten many games now. Hope he can be our answer at the #7.

With Alok, now that list of "armchair allrounders" grows.

I just can't wait till they play all of Alok, Riyad, Naeem, Shuvo, and even Ash in the same XI. That's gonna piss me off soooo bad.

That is what i hope for too.... SN looked really rusty and nervous in his first couple of outings but he seems to have settled in nicely now... I hope we give a similar opportunity for Alok and hopefully allow him to bat higher so that he gets to play himself in a little bit... even though he didn't make runs against the aussies he didn't look out of depth... and that cut shot he played was pure class... I have faith in this guy.... Hopefully against Zimbabwe and later against Pakistan he can cement his spot ahead of Naeem

A national team recall and then a sudden burst of Kapali again.
Good show in the last National League match.
Too bad he missed the rare chance of scoring century in both innings of a match.

A little confidence, along with a ray of hope which seemed so faded, can take you so much further.

An inform, true to his potential Kapali can only mean good things for our team.

It seems like Alok is on form again. 134 in the ongoing match and 40 in the previous is a solid start to this NCL. We could do with a consistent Alok.

Rajin has done well too. Experienced ones are leading the way for Sylhet. What about Tapash! :)

Nadim,

He is not even 30 yet. In many countries batsman make international debut at that age. He and Aftab still could revive their careers. This two can be real assets for us as they bring natural flair and class to the side. Sure they have mental blocks or temperament issues. But BCB has also let them down. Ashraful to a certain extant too.

Tiger444
November 11, 2012, 01:40 PM
#6 in the run scoring charts so far with an average of a 121 with 1 century and a half century. I'd say he's done pretty well so far. He's gotta continue this consistency though. Also I believe that we should not just rule out players because remember, we're Bangladesh and not Australia or England. On top of that he's still 28 so he's got time to come back but he needs to continue to score well and then he has to perform in the A team before getting another chance again. Remember, we need more depth in our middle order.

As for Aftab, forget about playing for Bangladesh, he shouldn't be playing for Chittagong with the attitude he has. A 24 avg for FC's and only 1 century in 96 innings? Like I said before he's lucky to be even playing for Chittagong.

Age wise Very much possible in the test team. But not sure performance wise, if he has done enough yet to get a recall.

BanCricFan
November 11, 2012, 02:28 PM
Ofcourse, I wasnt suggesting a Test recall for the likes of Alok or Aftab. Alok needs to finish the NCL as one of the top run getters. Then A tours and so on...

Aftab has lost all his confidence after being hit by the cricket ball and his tenant(!). And the binge feasting, too. So his rehab might take a little more time. But, he should be helped and guided back into the top flight again. BCB could do a lot here.

Nadim
November 11, 2012, 02:30 PM
No point comparing BD with other countries...In BD, at 30 you are about to end your career rather than thinking of coming back. But. If Alok can do that, than its gd for us :)

And as far as i conern about Aftab, Let me ask you to decide :facepalm:

No point blaming the culture, IT's all up to an individual. As a professional athlete, they cannot blame the culture because you couldn't kept fit themselves. Culture doesn't force you to eat rice, biyani sokal, dupur, shonda. :lol:

If discard player like Deccens, Alok, Rajin can stay in shape than why can't he? R they not living in the same culture?

If Aftab is not driven to be on the national team then why waste time with him? At least with Alok, he's worked hard on his game and has done pretty well on the domestic scene. Aftab just doesn't seem in to it. It's laughable that a specialist batsman has only 1 FC century in his career.

Rajin should have never been dropped to begin with back around 2007. That's when the buira's in our team got left behind (Bashar, Pilot, Golla). At the time I thought BCB would keep him in the loop for the longer version considering he was somewhat experienced. But after getting dropped, he never really helped his cause by having any breakout performance in NCL. He scored runs from time to time, but always here and there. Whether he will ever return in the national team or not, one thing that's for sure is he intends to be around cricket for a long long time.

His 'Dhokhin Shurma' cricket academy is slowly growing. I think down the line in few more years after the franchise FC league takes over, we will probably see Rajin take over the team as a coach or adviser, the kind of role Pilot is now playing for Rajshahi. He is already kind of doing that now, I know during the off season and few weeks before NCL starts he invites all local players in the squad and hold training camp on his own.

I can still remember his swiftly timed nice cover drive which was destined to reach the fielder straight away without a run. Not to mention, handling the bouncers with chest..

Alex is an emo. No other way to explain his failures at the highest level. Never a favorite within BCB's Old Boys Network including at least 2 of our 3 national selectors since the Faruk-Koko dynasty, maybe he didn't get the run perhaps less deserving players had. But that sort of "injustice" doesn't mitigate the fact that he failed to take advantage of the chances he was given. Maybe he's not psychologically cut-out to sustain success at the highest level like most of our players.

I feel the same way with Alok. No questions about his talent but it's his ability to deal with pressure that's the problem. If he can get over his mental block then I could see him still serving Bangladesh cricket.
