Type: Batsman
Batting and Bowling Hand: Right
Batting and Fielding Position: Top-order Batsman; Covers/Mid-wicket/Close-ins
What lvl of cricket: Semi-pro

Played cricket ever since I can remember. It was mostly in the form of tape-tennis when I grew up in Dhaka, but ironically had my first taste of leather-ball/organized cricket after moving to Canada, at the age of 17. This summer will be my 4th season playing at the semi-pro level here in Toronto. Currently captaining the TP Tigers cricket club (www.tptigers.webs.com) - and just can not wait for the season to start!!!

I was an ok bowler, could bowl good length and line but didn't have good enough pace. I think i was a little better batsman than Walsh. Didn't have good technique, went hard at everything. But I was a very good fielder. Didn't drop many catches.

Overall not good. A lot of times i got into the squad for my fielding.

Right-handed Opening Batsman. Can bowl some medium-pacers, but rarely do in a match. Quite comfortable against pace, but not too great against quality spin bowling as there aren't many in the local Sydney leagues. Fielding-wise I prefer cover or point, sometimes pitch in at slip if we need an extra.

A bowling all-rounder

Right handed lower middle order batsman.

Right arm medium-pacer.

Fielder at Mid-wicket & Squire-Leg zone.

used to play for our local club & captained for sometime! now mostly a short-pitch-time-passing cricketer due to overweight & lack of time!

Currently:
Type: All rounder

Batting and Bowling Hand: both Right, bowl medium-fast, was pretty quick even 3/4 years back, now slower bouncer is my best delivery, Shaun Pollock type

Batting and Fielding Position: batting at 3 or 4, Rahul Dravid type, point or short mid-wicket, once kept wicket, hate fielding at slip

What lvl of cricket: fun-cricket, para-cricket, inter-city competition (in abroad), tape-tennis, in the last 10 years I have played only a single match with proper cricket ball

My cricket career has evolved quite a bit.
In the school, I used to play football more than cricket. I was just mediocre-to-bad in both of them. Cricket took over football around 1995/96. I was a solid batsman with good defense and SIX-hitting ability. I used to bowl only occasionally with very slow pace.

Next several years was the same. But I was never a regular athlete. Academic career was always the priority.

I became a quick bowler around 2003. Went for the out and out pace and it was quite thrilling. I loved it and spent quite a bit of time practising pace bowling (tape-tennis, of course). I perfected line and length with the ability to bowl yorkers almost at will. That is why, I am often disgusted when a national team bowler can not control line and length.

Now, just play occassionally in a club with lot of Pakis and Indians. Can not manage much time for it. It is more about fitness than cricket.

Throughout these years, I have been an excellent fielder. That is the part of cricket I like the most.

well i was the captain of my college team. played a lot of cricket at school level. i used to open the innings. i had a phsycological problem....i never played a god knock when i didnt play as an opener. used to do a bit off-spinner in para games but thats it. never tried in real matches. but i was an excellent fielder. always field in short extra cover. when i was at class six i was picked in my school team only for my fielding. and everyone else was from class 9 and 10. so the captain told me ( his name was faisal) he will give me a icecream for every catch. that really pumped me up and in the 1st match i ended up with 3 sharp catches. he ended the deal after that match. :lol:

Hmm.. I've lots of similarity with sir ash..:p
Im Middle order Batsman now.. Bat at num 4.. But started playing as a opener..
Well im a pretty much talented batsman..:D At very early age i started to play with senior players of para (may be when i was at class 3-4)... Though nobody ever coached/told me what to do i can play all kind of shots without any difficulty.. Earlier i've problem with match temperment.. Just like our sir ash..lol.. In the practice i always looks outstanding but at match dont know what happened then because i always used to get out playing very sill shot.. Just like an example one match i got out in a lollypop fulltoss,just because i became confuse what to do whether i'll hit or defense.. So earlier this happened a lot.. And in the result after lots of same failure i got dropped from starting line up of my local club team and that lasted almost for 1 year... But hopefully during last 4 year i got rid off that problem though my batting style has changed a lot for this.. Earlier i was very aggrressive batsman now i first try to set then start to play shot.. I strongly believe if i've the family support and if i knew what to do to be a pro player then i would play for my country team.. But alas..:( well i use to ball a little bit also.. Slow medium pacer.. I always gives breakthrough when team needs.. Anyway I've played for my local club,School team,College team.. Thats all..
Note: i've no connection with bat ball for last 7-8 month.. May be unofficial retirement ata..:p
Pura history likhe felchi..lol..

Good Luck with that. They are a very good club and play in D2 in Surrey league (i think).

i was qualified to play for them in 2009 but couldn't be bother to travel all the way to North London...


btw, why don't you try for Kensington & Chelsea CC(thats who i play for)? :-p. They are playing league cricket since last yr and currently their 1st and 2nd XI in both in D3 of Middlesex league.

How far is that? Alexandra is like 5 mins away from my school and 20 mins away from my house so its kind of easy for me... We in our collage/6 form we made up a team and our school books the alexandra palace cricket pitch, so we can train there and their officails came up to some of us and they were like why don't you try out for us they took our numbers and yh they were like when we have outdoor training we will see how you guys play so hopefully they select me although my fielding is attricous :(

Initially I was a right arm pacer, then had a knee injury, turned into an offspinner, and then turned into a proper batsman and now have recovered from my injury and am a pace bowling allrounder.

Currently I bowl Medium Fast, I have clocked myself bowling around 128-130k.
Bat at #4-6
Fielding position: Mid on/Mid off.
Play grade cricket in Canberra for Eastlake , have also captained the lower grade sides last season. Players like Neil Fairbrother, Peter Martin, Watkinson, our own favorite Rod Tucker have played for Eastlake in the past.

I am a middle order batsman with good technique and a medium fast bowler. I can also bowl a bit of off spin and leg spin. Usually field in short cover. But never got to show my talent in big stage (Mainly due to educational and social system of BD).
