জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দল থেকে ‘নড়াইল এক্সপ্রেস’ মাশরাফি বিন মুর্তজাকে বাদ দেওয়ায় কাল বৃহস্পতিবার নড়াইলে সকাল-সন্ধ্যা হরতালের ডাক দিয়েছে মাশরাফি-ভক্তরা।
আজ বুধবার সন্ধ্যায় শহরে নড়াইলবাসীর ব্যানারে মাইকিং করে এ ঘোষণা দেওয়া হয়।
এর আগে আজ দুপুরে ঢাকায় জাতীয় দলের নাম ঘোষণার পর শহরে বিক্ষোভ মিছিল ও জাতীয় দলের নির্বাচকদের কুশপুত্তলিকা দাহ করে মাশরাফি-ভক্ত নড়াইলবাসীরা। এ সময় তারা অবিলম্বে মাশরাফিকে জাতীয় দলের ফিরিয়ে আনার দাবি জানান। অন্যথায়, বিশ্বকাপ বর্জন, হরতালসহ নানা কর্মসূচির ঘোষণার কথাও বলেছে তারা।
জেলা আইনজীবী সমিতির সাধারণ সম্পাদক আনন্দমোহন দাস বলেন, মাশরাফি দলে না থাকলে দলের ক্ষতি হবে। এ ছাড়া মাশরাফিকে দলে অন্তর্ভুক্তির জন্য নির্বাচক মণ্ডলীর প্রতি অনুরোধও জানিয়েছেন নড়াইল সদর উপজেলা চেয়ারম্যান শরীফ হুমায়ুন কবীর।
এদিকে, মাশরাফির বাবা গোলাম মুর্তজা স্বপন ও মা হামিদা মুর্তজা এ বিষয়ে কোনো মন্তব্য করতে রাজি হননি। তবে তাঁর আত্মীয়স্বজন ঘটনাটিকে ইনজুরির চেয়েও স্পোর্টস পলিটিকসকেই দায়ী করেছেন বলে জানা গেছে।

Btw, how does this whole "Mash could be included later on" thing work ?
Are we allowed to make changes on/before 9th if there are no injuries to current players ?
Is there any 'standby' list on top of the current 15 ?

Agree with them. I also think there is some other reason why he wasn't selected. Probably Shakib didn't want him in the team.

Equinox
January 19, 2011, 02:31 PM
^Yup me too. If you are confident that he will be fit for the first match then why isn't he included in the squad? Aussies have Hussey injured. India have four injured players in their squad. My guess is someone in the management, the coaches/captain or both don't want him in there. And if you have watched the press conference you could see Rafiqul's uneasiness in justifying the decision.

Australia's first match of the global event is against Zimbabwe on February 21 in Ahmedabad, leaving Hussey racing to recover. The quarter-finals start a month later and Hussey is such an important player that he could be allowed to enter the tournament when the knockout games are approaching

If Australia can do this, then why not Bangladesh? They have included Hussey for the Knockout Games.

Bunch of retards we have in the team managements.

Shakib doesn't like Ashraful too, why is he selected then? An unusual judgement.
We are all aware that Mashrafee is a much better player than Ashraful but we need to understand that he is recovering from an injury, not recovered yet, what happened when he came back and played in the Zimbabwe series, he got injured again. The management made a wise decision, it's better for him to recover fully, another injury would have set our best bowler in sidelines forever. We need to think about the future, maybe in 2015 he can play fully fit.
It's better for him to recover fully so that he can play cricket for another 7-8 years left in him.

Ok, the Mashrafe I knew would never cry. So obviously he isn't ready. If someone should be crying, then it should be players like Vaas or Jayasuriya. This was probably their last chance play WC one more time. But they didn't get picked. Oz left out Brett Lee last time. I can't believe I am saying this, but Mashrafe just topped the sissy chart. I also can't believe that he was at the top of my "brave tiger list"!

This isn't a emotional deal. Bangladeshis need to learn how to be more professionals. Kudos to BCB for making the right call, leaving all the emotions behind. Move on people, Mashrafe is not fit. If he was he would have been. There is just no way we can afford to waste a spot like this. This is the effing WORLD effing CUP!

Mashrafe needs to calm down, work on his fitness, return to INTERNATIONAL cricket properly. He is ONLY 27. He can play at LEAST one more WC, at 31. And if luck is with him, may be even at 35. He can't risk at least 6 more years of cricket just because of one WC.

I'm going to have to agree with you bro. I feel that calling him a sissy is pushing it but it's nothing to get so emotional about. He should realize that he's just been way too injured to play. I mean even the trainers have said that he has no chance to play. He got injured twice very recently so it's a big risk for him to play. He should understand that. I know he really wanted to play in the WC especially since its in our own backyard but he should focus on his fitness first.

Dilscoop
January 19, 2011, 05:11 PM
I can see why he would be upset, being this a home WC. But I wouldn't risk w/e cricket years left in me, for 6 matches (or more). But that doesn't mean he should COL. Of all people, I never expected Mash to cry. This just shows how soft he has become, he isn't the same tiger that he used to be.

Then again, he still have a chance. JS said, he can be used as a replacement if he is 100%.

This is his last WC and he knows it which is why he is crying. The way he is going he won't last another four years. And here's a bit of news for you guys. Since Rubel injured his back two weeks ago he hasn't played a single match for his club and neither is he practising with the national team yet he has been included in the squad. It is clear he is a victim of team politics.

I know what you mean bro and if you think logically we all have to agree that Mash needs to take a break. But like you said its effing world effing cup. No matter how tough of a man you may be, you'll shed a tear or two if you get kicked out from that dream tournament. And on top of that those stupid journalists were constantly asking him if this was the saddest day of his life or not. Realistically speaking he was upset no doubt but all these journalists made things even harder for Mash. All those KHOCHA were to hard to handle. So Mash should still be a hero in your book :)

He'll always be 1 of my favorite players. Can't forget how much he has given us. As you know though the media is always tough with the players. That's everywhere in the world. Since your from NY you can see the beating the players take from the media after losses and also being benched. Mash shouldn't be so upset just because the media is questioning him so much. After all it is their jobs to ask questions.

A real man will only cry when the World Cup has been won. Heck he can do anything he wants if he brings us the world cup.

But Mashrafe is young. He has time. He needs to put this behind him and move on and if he can do that, he'll be a great resource for us once again.

I agree!
Actually non of us here can understand how a cricketer like MAsh feels at the moment,he has been in & out so many times,missed out lots of mtchs but missing out WC at home is very disheartening.
I'd rather respect his emotions,his feelings,he may cry or laugh that's his emotions,no need to call him sissy or whatever.We r humain being,no matter how professional or practical we r there are times when any1 can get emotional.:(

@ Mash just think about the Pak boys. They might never host and play a single match at home again. Not any time soon. Let alone WC.

There is no doubt that I want a fit Mashrafe in Red and Green. But he has to fight harder this time around. He can't think like "oh this is my last WC chance". No wayyy!

Mash, omg you tard. It's not that you can't bowl, as you don't have the SKILLS or ABILITY. You are NOT FIT! That's what they mean by "you can't bowl". You can injure yourself. And dig yourself a even bigger hole and for the team.

I understand where you are coming from bro...but you also have to consider that Mash is a Bangali after all. Very emotional in nature. On top of that selectors didnt even notify him about his exclusion , he heard that news from SN ( according to the newspapers bro :) ) Its perfectly normal for journalists to ask questions but Mash was not in a state of mind to take all those harsh questions such as is this the saddest day of your life or not? I mean come on... give this guy a break. He's been through a lot.

perhaps mashrafe knows his long term fitness is not good. perhaps he decided after this world cup he will retire because of his recurring injuries that have been troubling him. perhaps he too was looking to play his last WC in front of his home crowd

he meant not fit player and he said he will show them by bowling (becoming fit). your understanding is wrong.

Listen he was suppose to lead this team and now he is not in 15 regardless of the reason so he bound to get emotional. He was planning to play infront of his family friend and what not. when he is going to get that chance again?

Also the reason he was not picked and dropped later as team feared that if he was not picked in final 11 he might act like last time so shakib and coach wanted to be sure if he was fit first... but i think this could have handled better...

Considering his fitness, I doubt he has another world cup left in him. And honestly what's wrong with him crying. He just lost the opportunity to play in the biggest stage of his profession, in front of his home fans. That is a huge hit to him. What is with this forum and labelling everyone sissys.

BCB was correct in leaving him out due to his fitness problems, but I don't see what is wrong with him showing some emotion at being left out.

I think people are being a bit harsh when criticising him for crying, it wasn't like he planned it. It looks like he had just heard the news and wasn't able to gather his thoughts and take it all in, as all the journos were hounding him asking him for his thoughts. He just got emotional, it was a natural reaction.
I would have thought the selection committee could have explained their decision to him beforehand, privately so that he understood, instead of letting him find out this way.
I personally don't think he has many years left in cricket, his body just can't cope. I think it will be two or three years at the most before he will have to retire. A World Cup is being hosted in his country for the first time, and he may not be able to take part, I think we can forgive him for shedding a few tears.

@ couple of top posts: Brett Favre plays football at the age of 40. Mash can't play little cricket at 31? Thinking like that is only going to ruin his chance of playing longer. Look at Lee, he is returning again. He is way more fit than Mash, and he still gets injured. So what do you expect to happen to Mash? He can at least start by getting into shape if he WANTS to play longer. But if he thinks "this is my last chance, I just wanna play 6 match in front my family, friends and then retire", then he shouldn't be picked at all.

Never said anything wrong with crying. I said it just shows he is not mentally tough like he used to be to be in top 20. I am saying he shouldn't cry. Boards are leaving more important and better players behind.

And how would you handle this "situation" better? What's there to handle? It's nothing personal. You guys are making it to be. There is no drama, there is no conspiracy, there is no politics.

u r missing the whole point. its playing a WC in the home ground. anyway of u don't get it, u won't...

They didn't even told him the news. he heard it from SN. an XCaptain diserves more...

And there is politics, read what Farooque said today in prothom-alo.

He should be in 15 and see till the end if he is fit or not. now there is no way.

Dear Dilscoop,

Mashrafi is our senior people, show a little respect towards him. What is the point of using such foul language towards Mashrafi by referring to him as "tard' and "sissy." Did Mashrafi say he believes this is his last world cup? Show me his exact quotes.

He is a fighter and shall rise from ashes, about the tears, you won't know what it feels like. You need to be in Mashrafee's shoes to feel what he is going through. It's not very polite to make sarcastic comments when a Tiger is down.

I agree with you that the management has made a wise decision and it's better for his career. But think before labeling names such as "sissy" and "tard" do give it a thought and try to put yourself in the other person's shoes.

Mashrafee's words not mine
"Today is the most painful day of my life," he managed, but before he had finished the sentence, Mashrafe sobbed, head bowed, unable to talk.
"I wasn't ready for this news. I was 100 per cent confident but now I have nothing to do. I respect their decision and I wish the players well.
"When I came here on crutches 26 days ago, I said I would play the World Cup. But now I haven't even started to bowl. I thought I would get a chance but it's just my bad luck," said Mashrafe, although it was clear he wanted to be left alone.
"I know the reason why I have been dropped and I will work on getting fit for the matches. I'm not talking about the World Cup but the matches after that," said the Narail Express.

Cheers,
Munna Bhai

Ok, the Mashrafe I knew would never cry. So obviously he isn't ready. If someone should be crying, then it should be players like Vaas or Jayasuriya. This was probably their last chance play WC one more time. But they didn't get picked. Oz left out Brett Lee last time. I can't believe I am saying this, but Mashrafe just topped the sissy chart. I also can't believe that he was at the top of my "brave tiger list"!

This isn't a emotional deal. Bangladeshis need to learn how to be more professionals. Kudos to BCB for making the right call, leaving all the emotions behind. Move on people, Mashrafe is not fit. If he was he would have been. There is just no way we can afford to waste a spot like this. This is the effing WORLD effing CUP!

Mashrafe needs to calm down, work on his fitness, return to INTERNATIONAL cricket properly. He is ONLY 27. He can play at LEAST one more WC, at 31. And if luck is with him, may be even at 35. He can't risk at least 6 more years of cricket just because of one WC.

You smarty!! read what the physio said. we are not creating drama. read what shakib said in the end.

He should be in 15 and see till the end if he is fit or not. now there is no way.

Why should you pick a unfit player instead of a fit player when you know the possibility of the unfit player's play is 15-20%.

You may replace the unfit player with the fit one before the deadline which is 2 weeks before the WC but the think about the mental condition of the fit player. He will be confused whether he will make it or not and will not able to prepare himself on those days. As we are only picking 3 fast bowlers we cannot take any risk and BCB has done the right thing to keep the unfit one out of the final team.

And where did you get that 15-20% number? beside a 16th person can train along side the 15 men. no icc is looking over to see who is traveling and practicing with the team. What if mash was fit now and got injured before 19th? then what would you do since no player can be ready...
Some of you r thinking its not a big deal without mash. that's why u r thinking why so fuss about him or what not when we have better players. but u r wrong. look at australia bringing back both senior pace bowlers. it takes time to make pace bowlers. they can have one or two good games but making plans against so many team is not that easy... we needed him and his experience on and off the field. That's what I personally think and looks like all the major captains agree with me. stop and think about that for a minute. these players played here all their life they know a thing or two more than us...

Really feel sorry for Mashrafe - clearly playing in the world cup meant a lot for him and I can understand why he would have broken down in tears after hearing the news. Hope he comes back stronger like so many times before.

However, I don't get why people are seeing 'politics' in Mashrafe not getting picked. I just see cricketing reasons - he is easily our best new ball bowler but we needed a fully fit Mashrafe and if he is not, how does it help? Those who are giving Mike Hussey's example, Hussey is a batsman; even if he is not 100% fit he can bat with a runner whereas Mashrafe being a pace bowler would really need to be as close to being fully fit as possible in order to bowl his full quota of overs 'effectively'.

Coming back from his injury in the last series against Zimbabwe, I can remember people calling for is head and asking for Rubel to replace him when he did not bowl well in the first two matches - now imagine that happening in a crucial world cup match or even worse, Mashrafe breaking down in a vital world cup match!

I am sure Masharfe will be back but meanwhile we need to be thinking with the head, not the heart.

Damn, what if we actually won the WC. Will Mashrafe cry even more? He should be happy for his teammates. But he will have to cry for his bad fortune. Poor guy really.

You may cry a little for your ill-fate. However, it should not be portrayed as if it is fault of selection team. This is not end of the world. Come on, it is time for him to accept the team selection and wish them all the best. If you can help the team, then do so. That's what I would do. And ask your people to call off hartal. This is ridiculous to say the least.

@ couple of top posts: Brett Favre plays football at the age of 40. Mash can't play little cricket at 31? Thinking like that is only going to ruin his chance of playing longer. Look at Lee, he is returning again. He is way more fit than Mash, and he still gets injured. So what do you expect to happen to Mash? He can at least start by getting into shape if he WANTS to play longer. But if he thinks "this is my last chance, I just wanna play 6 match in front my family, friends and then retire", then he shouldn't be picked at all.

Never said anything wrong with crying. I said it just shows he is not mentally tough like he used to be to be in top 20. I am saying he shouldn't cry. Boards are leaving more important and better players behind.

And how would you handle this "situation" better? What's there to handle? It's nothing personal. You guys are making it to be. There is no drama, there is no conspiracy, there is no politics.

Favre did not have Mash's injury history. Plus, Favre playing became a spectacle. I don't think Mash would ever go that far. Mash is a competitor and might surprise everyone. But, I keep worrying about his long-term health. It would not be good if these injuries make him suffer at an older age.

To all the angry questions at my posts: There wasn't one question thrown at my posts that didn't have the ans in those posts already. So I am not gonna re-answer something that's already there. I suggest, instead of getting angry, why not clear your eyes, and reread what I had said. It answers everything.

There was one where it asked "why I am being disrespectful to Mash?" -This is a FAN FORUM. You can rip out players hair through your posts (within the forum's rules), that's why we are here. If I said something to his face, then that's a different issue.

Trust me, there is no body else that wants him in the squad more than me. But unlike some of you, I am not a bad fan of his. I want the best for him. And the best is to not have him in the squad. Lets say he is fit, but why would you want to risk some one who just barely recovered? Forget cricket, I want him to walk properly when he retires. Lets look at the bigger picture here. Will you angry mobs be there for him then? Hortal-ing so BCB buys him a pair of legs? Or will you offer yours?

Same thing can be said. If he was selected and won us big matches then people that r happy that he is not included would be jumping first.
calling him sissy and then saying i am worried about his future doesn't match.
Mash said he was willing to give up every thing to play this wc. do u understand what that means? he was willing to give up is way of earning just to be able to play...

so many people r angry because the logic was to pick and then drop him if he was not ready. but since the selectors didn't do that says that they didn't want him period. And that's a load of crap that stand by player will be emotionally down... many times many players have joined and played well for bd team from stand by...

and please also read all the post from others to understand what we are trying to say instead of calling people losers...

January 20, 2011, 08:13 PM
Since when the term "sissy" became so serious and hurtful to some of you? It started as a joke, and it's still is. In the same post that I had called him sissy, is the same post where I also cared about his future. It's not like later on, I tried to change my mind and started to make another point. That was my MAIN point, his future. Not just his cricketing one, but his future all in all. Yes, I get it, I shouldn't have called him a sissy, but that was before I knew so many of you were unaware of the BC meaning of 'sissy'. Funny how all of you could talk about is the "sissy" part and ignore rest of the posts.

And again, can we please stop with the "there is something going on, there is a conspiracy behind this call". No one, no one in Bangladesh or other Bangladesh cricket fans hate or have anything against Mashrafe. Players like Ashraful has both haters and lovers, but everyone loves Mashrafe. He is not one of those guys who you hold grudge against and kick him out of the team. Why can't you guys just get the fact that he is dropped because it's a big risk, unfit or just healed?

I did read all the posts, and all I see is emotions with irrational thinking and creation of unnecessary drama before the world cup.

No, I don't think I'm the only one with all the logic. Because everyone here agrees that it was a good decision. There are only few of you in BC who actually is thinking Hindi drama, and talking nonsense. As far as people from Norail, I won't make any comments on them, because I've never talked to them. But I know the BCers well enough, and they are very intelligent to understand, "he is injured-recovering-unfit-risky, so he is picked". SIMPLE.

If this was a selection for just a regular series, I could consider it as a Bangla-politics, but I probably wouldn't have. And you guys wouldn't have cared as much either, you all would have excepted the fact that they are just resting him. I know our and all selectors are known for questionable picks and politics but this is the World Cup! They are in the same team. They're may be stupid (or we think they are, because they don't pick the team we want), but they are not bad guys, or at least not during WC. I wont expect politics from even the PCB - crappiest board of all time.

Just look at some of the players that aren't part of WC squad across the world. Alastair Cook - England is going without a 2nd opener, but I don't hear English people are hortaling. Great Ashes series, but they still don't think he is good enough for ODIs, rightly so. (Just like how Imrul shouldn't be playing ODI, but we don't have any other option.) Mark Boucher - SA going without a keeper, expecting AB to keep. If BCB drops Mushy today, and asks Siddique to keep, surely it's a drama, BS they are trying something new, or fixing the team combo. SA also picked a new guy over Albie Morkel. Vaas and Jayasuriya - not given a chance to finish it off with the world cup. You know why? Because team 1st, players 2nd. And it's not a emotional deal. Shaun Marsh- Aus are a opener short, and they are not taking him because he can't bowl. That's probably the stupidest thing I've heard, but it would be mega politics if Imrul was dropped for that same reason. Doug Bollinger - Best Oz bowler from 09-10. Showed what he can do last night, not going to WC. And listen to this, all these guys are all 100% FIT. And we are talking about a guy who is not picked, because he isn't 100%.

Lets all stop being so emo, and back the team that will represent Bangladesh in 28 days. Lets not worry about who is in, who is out.

Which one is more important to me?
A) Mashrafe playing in WC and Norail + MM fans are happy, OR
B) Pick a team that the Captain and Coach feel is the team with best chance in WC for BD.

Let me see ... I think I know the answer!

We should ask Norail-bashi to go on hunger strike instead of hartal. In fact, why not ask them to boycott WC games in protest? They can stay away from the stadium or TV and instead do a manob bondhon around Masharafe's house during WC.

Btw, no disrespect to MM. He has every right to be disappointed. It is his and our bad luck that he is out of WC. But the clueless morons who think they know more about the team composition than Captain, Coach and Selectors combined, my advice is to go play with taped-tennis ball and keep your orifice (upper one) shut.

Dear Dilscoop,

Mashrafi is our senior people, show a little respect towards him. What is the point of using such foul language towards Mashrafi by referring to him as "tard' and "sissy." Did Mashrafi say he believes this is his last world cup? Show me his exact quotes.

He is a fighter and shall rise from ashes, about the tears, you won't know what it feels like. You need to be in Mashrafee's shoes to feel what he is going through. It's not very polite to make sarcastic comments when a Tiger is down.

I agree with you that the management has made a wise decision and it's better for his career. But think before labeling names such as "sissy" and "tard" do give it a thought and try to put yourself in the other person's shoes.

Mashrafee's words not mine
"Today is the most painful day of my life," he managed, but before he had finished the sentence, Mashrafe sobbed, head bowed, unable to talk.
"I wasn't ready for this news. I was 100 per cent confident but now I have nothing to do. I respect their decision and I wish the players well.
"When I came here on crutches 26 days ago, I said I would play the World Cup. But now I haven't even started to bowl. I thought I would get a chance but it's just my bad luck," said Mashrafe, although it was clear he wanted to be left alone.
"I know the reason why I have been dropped and I will work on getting fit for the matches. I'm not talking about the World Cup but the matches after that," said the Narail Express.

Cheers,
Munna Bhai

Ok, the Mashrafe I knew would never cry. So obviously he isn't ready. If someone should be crying, then it should be players like Vaas or Jayasuriya. This was probably their last chance play WC one more time. But they didn't get picked. Oz left out Brett Lee last time. I can't believe I am saying this, but Mashrafe just topped the sissy chart. I also can't believe that he was at the top of my "brave tiger list"!

This isn't a emotional deal. Bangladeshis need to learn how to be more professionals. Kudos to BCB for making the right call, leaving all the emotions behind. Move on people, Mashrafe is not fit. If he was he would have been. There is just no way we can afford to waste a spot like this. This is the effing WORLD effing CUP!

Mashrafe needs to calm down, work on his fitness, return to INTERNATIONAL cricket properly. He is ONLY 27. He can play at LEAST one more WC, at 31. And if luck is with him, may be even at 35. He can't risk at least 6 more years of cricket just because of one WC.

Dear Dilscoop,
You have every right to show and write about your thoughts just like any other BC membrs, but please do not forget that you do not have any rights to disrespect a player. I also did not want to see Mash in the team if he was unfit, but it does not mean that I have the right to "slap" him because he was crying. Be a man and act a like man !

RazabQ
January 21, 2011, 02:39 PM
Man alive what a discussion. Here are some facts:
1) As a iconic fast bowler, Mashrafee's status in our cricketing annals is already secure
2) In full fitness, as a new, white ball bowler, Mash was one of the top 10 in the game
3) In decision making you can be in the heartless bastard camp or the soft touchy feely camp. As long as in the end the right decision is made, both can work.
4) Mash is one emotion driven guy. This guy CRIED when he was bowling to Zim and we were 1 wicket away from our first Test victory. That is LOVE for your country. The guy put up with knee reconstructions. That is PASSION for your sport/vocation. But that same emotion led him to dropping Ponting in THAT Fatulla test, to having the Taylors and Sharmas of the world cart him around the park when the heat was on.
5) There is previous history of Mash being unable to take fitness related dropping from playing 11 in a constructive fashion.
6) Mash has a complete tear of his ACL. For those not aware of how big a deal that is please go here: http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/knee-ligament-injuries.
7) Mash's physicians have opted for a conservative treatment at the moment for this (http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/story/493694.html) but the permanent fix for him would be a reconstruction with cadaver (i.e. take ligament from a dead person). That's a 5-6 month outage.
8) If Mash's treatment & rehabilitation is fudged/rushed this time he'll be a disabled person without full mobility on his 1 leg.
9) A non-match-fit Mash can be carted around by an average batting side such as Zim
10) Australia is carrying Hussey fully cognizant that he will most likely NOT participate in the early matches
11) There were some communication mismanagement between player and selectors

So by processing these FACTS, I can offer the following OPINIONS:

1) There is some chance of Mash being "physically fit" by the time of India match
2) There is zero chance of Mash being "match fit" in the same time frame
3) One should NOT risk a non-match-fit Mash against Shewag & company
4) From 1-3, it would seem to be an obvious decision that he would be dropped for the opening match
5) I can imagine Rafik, Shakib, Siddons et al worrying about drama involving #4 and wishing to avoid that in a World effing Cup.
6) I wonder if as a team we are accomplished, professional and powerful enough to carry a player for "2nd round" action
7) For all of the above I agree with the decision NOT to name him in the 15 right now
8) There is a high chance that Mash's emotion is clouding his judgement, which should be driving decisions that prioritize his long-term health
9) A lot of this drama would have been avoided if the selectors had their peon ring Mash, and if he wasn't there, call his home, call his dad, send a messenger, etc and told him before hand that he was being dropped. A guy with his contribution and emotional sensibilities deserves that.
10) Dilscoop comes from the tough-love school of decision-making

গোলাম মুর্তজা (স্বপন): আমরা কেউই ভালো নেই। সারাক্ষণ মনের মধ্যে একটা দৃশ্য ভাসছে। মাশরাফি কাল (পরশু) সাংবাদিকদের সামনে কেঁদে ফেলেছিল। ওই দৃশ্য টিভিতে দেখে আমরা মুষড়ে পড়েছি। ওটা মন থেকে তাড়াতে পারছি না।
 কাল (পরশু) কখন মাশরাফির সঙ্গে কথা হয়েছে আপনার?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: টিভিতে দল ঘোষণার পর আমি ওকে ফোন দিই। ও ফোনটা ধরল। আমি বললাম, আব্বু, তুমি দলে নেই। ও শুনে কিছুক্ষণ চুপ করে রইল। ও কথা বলতে পারছিল না। আমিও পারছিলাম না। বুঝতেই পারছেন, বাবা-ছেলের আবেগ। আমি এরপর ফোন কেটে দিলাম।
 অনেকেই এই খবরটা মানতে পারছে না। আপনাদের পক্ষে তো আরও কঠিন...
গোলাম মুর্তজা: আমরা আশায় বুক বেঁধেছিলাম। ও নিজেও বলছিল, ‘আব্বু, তোমরা চিন্তা কোরো না। আমি ঠিকই দলে থাকব।’ দেশের মাটিতে খেলা, ও খেলতে পারবে না—এটা মাশরাফি নিজে যেমন, আমরাও ভাবতে পারি না।
 কিন্তু মাশরাফির ফিটনেস নিয়ে তো একটা সংশয় থেকে গেছে।
গোলাম মুর্তজা: আমরা তো শুনি, অনেকে বলে ও খেলতে পারবে। মাশরাফি নিজেও প্রচণ্ড রকম আশাবাদী ছিল। তবে পত্রপত্রিকায় নানা খবর দেখতাম। তার পরও আশাবাদী ছিলাম আমরা। কারণ, দেশের প্রতি মাশরাফির ভালোবাসা অতুলনীয়। অনেকবারই এর প্রমাণ সে দিয়েছে।
 আপনার কাছে ছেলের কোন জিনিসটা বেশি ভালো লাগে?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: দলের জন্য নিজেকে উজাড় করে দেওয়া, বারবার ইনজুরির পরও ফিরে আসা—এগুলো অসাধারণ। কোনো লোভ-লালসা নেই। একটা ঘটনা বলি। একদিন আমাকে বলল, ‘আব্বু, আইসিএল থেকে আমাকে ১০ কোটি টাকার অফার দিয়েছে। ৬ কোটি টাকা অগ্রিম। কিন্তু আমি যাব না। আমি টাকার কাছে জীবনেও বিক্রি হব না।’ তখন আমি তাকে বললাম, কনগ্র্যাচুলেশনস। সে বলল, ‘থ্যাংকস।’ কথাটা আমার সব সময়ই মনে পড়ে।
 নড়াইলে তো আজ (কাল) হরতাল হলো। সেখানে কী অবস্থা?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: হরতাল, মিছিল—এগুলো আমরা পছন্দ করি না। সবাইকে সেটা বলেছিও। কিন্তু মানুষ তো মানে না। দল ঘোষণার পরও অনেকে বাড়িতে এসেছে। কেউ কেউ সান্ত্বনা দিয়েছে এই বলে, বাদ পড়া তো খেলারই অংশ। তবে ওর প্রতি অন্যায় হয়ে থাকলে এবং সে জন্য বাদ পড়লেও হয়তো দুঃখ থাকত না। ওর কান্নার দৃশ্যটা সত্যিই আমাদের বুক ভেঙে দিয়েছে।
 রাতে কথা হয়েছিল?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: হয়েছে। দেখুন, কতটা আবেগে সে কেঁদেছিল, সেটা আমাকে বলল, ‘আব্বু, আমার ওখানে কেঁদে ফেলাটা ঠিক হয়নি। পরে আমি এটা বুঝেছি।’ এমনিতে ও সহজে ভেঙে পড়ে না। বাবা বলে বলছি না, ও সত্যিই ভীষণ লড়াকু একটা ছেলে। ওকে বলেছি, আব্বু, জীবনে কাউকে কোনো কিছুর জন্য দোষারোপ করবা না। ও বলল, ‘আমি ফিরে আসব আব্বু। তোমরা তো আমাকে ভালো করেই চেনো।’
 মাশরাফির মায়ের মানসিক অবস্থা কেমন?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: ওর আম্মা আরও ভেঙে পড়েছে। ছেলের সঙ্গে কথা বললে নিজেকে সামলাতে পারবে না, সে জন্য কাল কথাও বলেনি।
 মাশরাফিকে তো আমরা বাইরে থেকে দেখি। ভেতরের মাশরাফি আসলে কেমন?
গোলাম মুর্তজা: একটু লাজুক স্বভাবের। আমার কাছে ভেজা বিড়াল। ওর মায়ের সঙ্গে বেশি ফ্রি।

Dilscoop just chill will you? us bangladeshis have always been senti as far as BD politics go. and you cant compare Cook,Marsh ,Bollinger and company to Mashrafi's situation. Cricketing greats they are sure but none have made their respective country's cricket what it is today. Unlike Mashrafi.

we are just having a discussion....

Agree too.

No, I don't think I'm the only one with all the logic. Because everyone here agrees that it was a good decision. There are only few of you in BC who actually is thinking Hindi drama, and talking nonsense. As far as people from Norail, I won't make any comments on them, because I've never talked to them. But I know the BCers well enough, and they are very intelligent to understand, "he is injured-recovering-unfit-risky, so he is picked". SIMPLE.

If this was a selection for just a regular series, I could consider it as a Bangla-politics, but I probably wouldn't have. And you guys wouldn't have cared as much either, you all would have excepted the fact that they are just resting him. I know our and all selectors are known for questionable picks and politics but this is the World Cup! They are in the same team. They're may be stupid (or we think they are, because they don't pick the team we want), but they are not bad guys, or at least not during WC. I wont expect politics from even the PCB - crappiest board of all time.

Just look at some of the players that aren't part of WC squad across the world. Alastair Cook - England is going without a 2nd opener, but I don't hear English people are hortaling. Great Ashes series, but they still don't think he is good enough for ODIs, rightly so. (Just like how Imrul shouldn't be playing ODI, but we don't have any other option.) Mark Boucher - SA going without a keeper, expecting AB to keep. If BCB drops Mushy today, and asks Siddique to keep, surely it's a drama, BC they are not trying something new, or fixing the team combo. SA also picked a new guy over Albie Morkel. Vaas and Jayasuriya - not given a chance to finish it off with the world cup. You know why? Because team 1st, players 2nd. And it's not a emotional deal. Shaun Marsh- Aus are a opener short, and they are not taking him because he can't bowl. That's probably the stupidest thing I've heard, but it would be mega drama if Imrul was dropped for that same reason. Doug Bollinger - Best Oz bowler from 09-10. Showed what he can do last night, not going to WC. And listen to this, all these guys are all 100% FIT. And we are talking about a guy who is not picked, because he isn't 100%.

Lets all stop being so emo, and back the team that will represent Bangladesh in 28 days. Lets not worry about who is in, who is out.

Just answer me if it was shakib in the same condition what would we do? wait for him or leave him and take another player? answer it to your self i know you will know what the small number of bc members r saying... btw u did called losers who were doing hartal. I suggest u leave out name calling from all u r post and things will look brighter...

I dont really care either way for the Mash exclusion. But these people are losers for calling a strike over this. I really don't understand how some people have so much time in their hands. They really need to do something more productive with their lives.

Even when Mash got the captaincy back from Shakib during the England tour last July, lots of BD people said there was politics involved! The thing is, we are so much accustomed to this ''politics'' thing almost everywhere in our country, now if anything happens against our wish, we tend to classify them as ''politics''!

However, like most of us said, it would have been a much better approach from the selectors if they opted to include Mash initially, then they could have replaced him if he failed to regain his fitness.

But there's no point blaming the selectors really.....Mash got himself injured just 1.5 months before the WC, and this is not even a minor injury.

@ Akabir, at least we agree to some extent.

In Shakib's case it'd be different ATM. If Shakib was dropped today, out of the blue, then I'd think definitely there is something fishy going on. No, it is not because it's Shakib, or he is better than Mash in any ways. Nothing like that. It's because Shakib is not injured, nor is he out of touch atm. I can't see how Shakib can get dropped. But if some Chief chur/chor were to come out and say Shakib got injured randomly (touch wood) and he is out (touch wood), I'd expect Shakib to come out like Rafique did and bust some selector's nuts. Because Mashrafe is in a different situation, and he is infect did injure himself and therefore I am not convinced that there is infect some politics going on.

Tell you what. Since I've tried to convince those of you who thinks it's a conspiracy to change your mind, or at least to show you why I think he is dropped just because he is not match fit, and pretty much failed to get my points through to you, why not switch role? Convince me why it is infect a Bangla-political move. Don't just tell me that it is one. Give me some reasons.

@ Tiger-ess, I think I am pretty chilled.

Ok, what's with people thinking I am angry? Is it because I am not putting (:D :) :-p :lol::heart:) ton of those in my posts? Please let me know, so I don't come out as a angry mob when I am not trying to. I may not be Haha-hehe-ing while I am posting, but I am not angry. I am sleepy if anything else.

My Question was what if shakib was injured (same type of injury and same situation [dr. say he may, but he is not fit now but will be fit before say last 2/3 match] as mash [touba touba allaha na koruk]) what would u do if selectors left him out. (i know for sure they would not dare to do that).

Answer me this and u know the politics. its not that they don't like him or something. its because they don't want to give the same amount of chance like some others. if you don't believe me then tell me why Rafiq is not playing now or was not part of the team for long time? every one in the country loved him????? what was the reason? it could be as simple as Mash didn't gave salam to rafiq mama or akram mama... i am guessing u didn't grow up in bangladesh and that's why u r looking for hard evidence. where i came from some people would do that just because they can...

Also I noticed that there is another group (other then "politics" and "fair move" group) where people are talking how Mash could fail big time (performance-wise) and that's why they don't want him in the squad. Although I've just a bit of doubt on Mash's form, but that's not why I don't want him in the team. I am more worried about him getting injured in the middle of the game, like times and times again and leaving us no where. And how that could be the end of him. Like I said I'd rather 5 more years, then one WC just because it's at home soil.

That's the group I am in.

If he could only play for 2-3 matches? hmm idk, that's a dilemma. Worse part is that there isn't any other ALR like him (yahh if we had another number one alr in the country, we would be in much better place) to replace him. At least with Mash we can use Shahadat, just to fill up the spot.

But you kind of ignored rest of my post. See that's the problem, people only saw the "SISSY" part and jumped on me. It doesn't work if you are not going to read the whole thing

And that is the objection that u think mash=sahadat.
please look at their WC record...
if u talk that way (mash can be replaced so drop him) then i give up as u r not even aware of what mash is what he did for bangladesh (not just bowling fast).

never said Shahadat is just as good as Mash. Key words, AT LEAST, Fill the spot.

Let me rephrase, at least we can get a some crap like Shahadat or Rasel just to fill up the spot

When Mash said he can perform by than and give his full performance, I think BCB should have trusted the man that only cared for performing for the team. I find it very disrespectful towards someone that is so dedicated and proven.
And u losers calling him a sissy, for a cricketer there is no higher dream than play worldcup at their own country..... Everyone would become emotional. This is what players work for all their life, and when they dunt get it, result is devastating....
U ppl dint deserve world cup glory, because true fans dunt call the person that dedicated his life for the team a "sissy"
He deserves a chance in the team atleast until the 9th to see the result....Norail people have the right to protest, they are not gaining anything from protesting, they are doing it for someone they love, respect

Only applies to ppl calling him sissy
