The Bangladesh A team are all set to visit India to play an eight-team four-day tournament in Bangalore in July-August this year.

Cricket operations committee of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has finalised almost all the tour arrangements and is now waiting for the board's approval.

Besides the Bangladesh second string side, Sri Lanka A is the other foreign team in the in the month-long competition where four top Ranji Trophy sides including champions Rajasthan will also take part.

Bangladesh A last played against England Lions at home in January this year.

It was learnt that Stuart Barnes will arrive in Dhaka on June 20 to take over the reins of the Bangladesh A team as a head coach. The Englishman earlier worked with the A team for three months last year and this time he is also coming here on a short-term agreement.

^^^ ok thats your squad but what would be the realistic one named by BCB selectors.

5) Nazimuddin: If main team played him as Tamim's opening partner then why play him as middle order batsmen.

9) Abul Hasan will stay with tigers.

9) Abul Hasan will stay with tigers.

That's where he played for his domestic club most of the time. I think they will stick to that position. (Nazimuddin)

Abul Hasan most likely will be included in the A Team, he needs to have good practice at 4 day games, not only t20. this competition will help him improve.

awesome news, as far as squads go shuvagata and naeem have to be in the starting XI if they aren't with the national team, they are 2 of the best middle order batsmen in FC in BD. asif ahmed defintely makes it to and maybe even marshall ayub and shabbir rahman. as far as pacers go al amin, abu zayed should make it and maybe babu otherwise a kamrul (assuming abul is with natinoal team). dhiman makes it as the keeper no question, farhad hossain is a big possibility and jahurul if he isn't with the national team. and yeah nazimuddin there as a middle order bat if he's not in the national team, imrul takes an opening role, and of course mominul has to be in there.

mahmudul hasan should be there as far as other spinners go we have nur, arafat, enamul, saqlain, nabil. i'd say shaker ahmed but i don't know where he's been lately and he hasn't bowled much in his more recent matches.

That is most likely what the squad will be. I am actually quite excited about this tourney. Greatest news all year since Asia Cup. This trumps even the World T20, imo.

Asif Ahmed will be in AUS for the U-19 cup and if the team hasn't left by then, he will probably be training with them. Nonetheless I think it would be great to expose him to such top quality cricket over the U19. I hope he gets selected and then gets shipped off to AUS to play for the cup.

My ideal squad of 15 would be:

1) Nazimuddin
2) Imrul
3) Asif Ahmed
4) Anamul
5) Mominul
6) Naeem
7) Dhiman+
8) Babu
9) Arafat/Saqlain
10) Shahadat
11) Enam Jr

x) Shahriar Nafees
x) Hom
x) Kamrul Islam Rabbi
x) Shubashish/Forhad Hossain

As stated above most of the picks are obvious and self explanatory...but Asif I think should play as much of this tourney as possible then head off to U19 world cup. Same with Anamul as he will likely miss U19 if he plays WT20, and there is no reason he can't play both this tourney and T20. In fact, I'd rather he plays this tourney and skips the WT20 and goes directly to U19 WC like Asif. I picked Arafat because he might be a better prospect than Saqlain, but ideally both should make the trip. Shahadat is in because with injuries to Rubel and Shafiul he's our front line man. Enam Jr I hope has a career re-birth.

if anamul is going to play then it should be as the #3 or opener. mominul is a defo, imo shuvagata should be a definate to. as should asif ahmed (who also should bat as opener or 1 down).

9 al amin
10 abu zayed/shubashis/kamrul
11 arafat/sajib/mahmudul/nur/enamul

nazimuddin might or might not be with the national team, we only need to take 4 pacers imo so one of abu, shubashis and kamrul get left out. as far as spinners go it's a lot tougher, enamul always performs well domestically but never does so well when given higher honours, shaker would have been a good pick a year ago but he barley plays or bowls now from what i've seen, sajib always performs so maybe him, arafat has done well lately, mahmudul is a good off spinning prospect and nur is a good leg spinning prospect.

That actually sounds very illogical to me. I would rather allow him to play the practice matches with full focus on T20 and do well in the world cup. That will give him, selectors and fans confidence to gradually try him in ODI and longer version with the national team.

If he looses his focus in T 20 by playing 4 dayers with Indian A team quality (?) bowlers and performs poorly in T20 WC ... Many will shout about his prepared ness for the national team and may be dump him.. To try with another for Odi in next tour.

It's a big test for him to play well in T20 WC and there is enough cricket for him prior to that, but we want to send him to 4 dayers with Indian A team... It's just weird approach to me. if playing Indian A team helps to improve T20 performance, then I think 9 out of our 11 should be sent there then. Overloading a debutant doesn't help.... He is already under pressure adjusting to t20 at this level...why don't we teach him longer version in the next semester?

I know how he will be evaluated if he can't perform well in T20 WC ... Any way, let's see what BCB decides. I'm not in fever of distracting him.

just goes to show the talent there is in BD, but for me the A team is more important than u19 cricket so anyone eligible for the u19 team but deserves A team selection should go to the A team imo. but you are right, plenty of players to choose from, but it's important we choose the right players because it's not often these players get to play outside BD.

Gowza
June 11, 2012, 10:31 PM
anamul is more a 4-day batsman though. the question is should he play the t20s to get better adjusted and to learn at the international level or should he put more focus on 4-dayers. t20s and one-dayers is where he needs to improve more, but in saying that playing the shorter formats in the international level should at this stage also help him with the longer format because he's going to be exposed to better bowling playing the t20 world cup and international t20s/ODIs than he is in this tournament.

also if abul isn't in the national squad at the time then the pace attack should be abul, babu and al amin.

tbh i think our pacer prospects are the best they have ever been with abul, babu, al amin, subashis and the kamrul's and the spin is always solid although we really need to develop more high quality depth in the spin department since it is the strong point, we have maybe 2 decent quality test spinners with shakib and elias but outside of that we have some who could be solid shorter format bowlers but not really any for the longer format. shaker was looking a terrific prospect, now he's nowhere, we have to wait and see if nur can develop into a world class leggy and if any of sajib, nabil etc were really that special they would have already been brought into the national team frame and proved themselves, they've been at it for years and had amazing results for years it's not like there wasn't space for them in the national team. look at enamul and shuvo, awesome for years domestically but couldn't pull it off at the higher level.

Getting owned at these tours is not necessarily a bad thing. It helps the individuals who are touring re-assess their true skills and fire them up to do better than ever before, which is good for our cricket! All I am expecting is that we show up and we really push the opposition to the limit, win/loss to me is irrelevant for these tours. What I want to see is players really stepping up their game and getting mentally ready to take on any opposition in any condition(ready for prime time international cricket).

We need FAST BOWLERS. - Dollar Mahmud, Shahadat Hossain, Robiul Islam, Kazi Kamrul Islam. I am really liking Alauddin Babu too, he can be an all rounder. These 5 guys should play every game.

NO MORE SLOW LEFT ARM ORTHODOX. We already have Shakib and Razzak. We need variation, so an attacking legbreak and off break bowler is what's required. Nasir and Mahmadullah do off-breaks but they are more like part time bowlers.

I would love to see Rajin Saleh return to the national side. He was a very very solid number 3 batsman in both formats.

we need fast bowlers but not those guys, maybe kamrul and babu is good, subashis, al amin, dollar has potential. i'm sure if we have any prospects pybus will bring them to light since he attended the recent fast bowling camp so looks like he might attend camps etc quite often and scout for talent. someone made note that the camp pybus attended had a decent looking left arm fast bowler in the footage whilst pybus was interviewed, wonder who he is?

riyad can be a solid bowler but he's not really a wicket-taker and nasir has potential but he has great balls and not so great balls. nur is the main up coming leggy. elias is looking like a really good prospect.

as far as rajin saleh goes he was given another chance in the national team and failed. guys like anamul, asif, mominul, shuvagata are the ones to look at imo.

It's actually quite a pity that Anamul will miss out on this tour. The success that brought him to the selector's attention was achieved in the longer formats, not T20s. It would have been great if he could have honed his skills there, in a more competitive first-class environment.

While he may learn a lot from playing in Irish conditions, we can't be sure if he will even get a regular run in the side once Shakib and Tamim join the team. The India A Tour may be more beneficial to him than warming the bench in Ireland and the Netherlands.

Shafi Darashah is a tournament for Indian upcoming players to fight for a place in their state teams. it's not even a first class tournament.

Stuart Barnes
Born:
Role: Assistant Coach

Stuart holds the important position of bowling coach but expanded his role in 2008 to focus on coaching the first XI. Recently qualified with the prestigious Level Four Coaching qualification Stuart is highly regarded around the country as one of the top elite coaches.

Perhaps unknown to some, Stuart played 11 first class matches for Gloucestershire in 1990/91 and a total of 18 2nd XI matches between 1989 and 1991. He has also represented Bath Cricket Club at 2 National Club finals at Lord’s in 2001 and 2003. The latter they lost by only 1 run and he was joined in the side by current Gloucestershire player Tom Stayt.

Fitness a concern for A team

The Bangladesh A team’s preliminary squad members could not provide a good account of their fitness level on Monday as they began their training camp ahead of their tour to India in July.
All but two of the 28 players reported to head coach Stuart Barnes at the Mirpur Indoor stadium to make preparations for the Shafi Dharshah Trophy but most of them failed to impress the management with their blip-test results.
Wicketkeeper Mithun Ali was even vomiting and most of the players looked fatty after enjoying a break for nearly a month.
‘I agree that some of the results were not up to the mark but that is understandable as most of them had a break for a month,’ said trainer Tushar Kanti Howlader.
‘Some of the senior players need to work hard as their fitness level does not match their reputation but we have enough time to raise their fitness level,’ said Tushar.
‘Barnes also emphasised on fitness as he believes it will be one of the most crucial aspect of their preparation. We will again have a fitness test tomorrow [Tuesday] and after analysing their fitness level the coach will plan the practice schedules,’ he said.
The four-day format Shafi Dharshah Trophy will also involve Sri Lanka A team apart from the top teams from India’s domestic first-class competition, the Ranji Trophy, including the champions Rajasthan.
Left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain and batsman Shuvagata Hom missed the first day’s training as they are currently in England and India respectably.
Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Sohrawardi Shuvo has been included in the A team practice and he is expected to join the camp today as Mosharraf Hossain is unlikely to return from England.
‘Rubel [Mosharraf] is in England so we selected Shuvo in his slot. The door, however, is open for him [Mosharraf] when he arrives,’ chief selector Akram Khan told New Age.

Ive done the Bleep/Beep/pacer test once every year since the last 4 years. Let me tell you, even the most unfit people do not vomit. Vomiting may have been triggered from eating heavy food right before doing the test or maybe the coaches pushed the players to a VERY EXTREME point (which i highly doubt). I did fairly ok in the beep test and honestly i dont mind doing it. It helps me understand where my stamina is.

For people who do not know what the Bleep test is, it is basically where you have to do a shuttlerun of 20 metres. There is a 'beep' and you have to reach the 20m mark before the beep. The beep gets faster and faster so you have to push yourself. This tests your stamina and agility. It is designed more long distance runners. It also shows how fit you are and how good your cardiovascular system is.

Ive studied what sportsmen need to get in the beep test to be deemed fit for the particular sport they play. I got 10.8 which is ok. International cricket players have to get 12 or above. It would be very interesting what Bangladeshi players get as it would be a determining factor of how fit they actually are.

Enjoy whatever little success we get from the senior team while you can, because it won't last long. Mushfiq, Tamim, Nasir and Shakib won't play forever. Disaster looms. Can't expect professionalism from sportsmen in a country where almost everyone treats a job as just a job - a means for living comfortably - and not a career or a passion.

Asif Ahmed needs to be fired as captain. The coach, whoever he is, needs to be fired. No, this isn't knee-jerk. If top quality futbol teams can do it, no reason why we can't. This tournament was a disaster and should be treated as such, let's not encourage excuses.

Coach Ian was talking about how professional the Haryana team in India. The players are extremely motivated. And this is a FC team we're talking about. Forget our domestic teams, even our national team shows signs of being unprofessional. It sounds like a broken record but unless our domestic structure improves, we'll continue to see players underachieving and these stories will continue to come out. We'll get the odd Shakib and Tamim type players but we won't be churning out class players like we should.

Thanks for the info.It was really nice to know all the info about beep test.Can you enlighten us more about the bleep test?Specially how much running you need to do to score 12 in beep test?

Well basically you start from level 1 (its slow when you first start, like jogging pace) and you run twenty metres and you have to make sure you reach the other side before the beep. When you reach the other side it mean your on level 1.1. And then you have to run back 20 metres again before the beep. Then you are on level 1.2. After running back and forth you will eventually reach 1.8 and after 1.8 it will be 2. Every single time the interval of the beeps will reduce which will force you to run faster and faster. The levels go like this
1 ---> 1.8
2 ---> 2.8
3 ---> 3.8
4 ---> 4.8
5 ---> 5.9
6 ---> 6.9
7 ---> 7.10
8 ---> 8.10
9 ---> 9.11
10 ---> 10.11 (i got upto 10.8, couldnt reach the Level 11)
11 ---> 11.11
12 ---> 12.12 (This is where international cricket players should at least be at)

tbh it's pretty easy to get 12, i've got over 12 before but even when i just couldn't be bothered i'd still get at least in the high 10s if not 11. when i was in high school everyone on the athletics team and swim team would have got over 12 (even the young ones). the first time i did it was when i was 11 or 12 and i got in the 9s and i didn't train back then and i certainly wasn't the best one there and this was just a school PE lesson.

i never understood why the standard for an international cricketer in the beep test is at 12 or above. should be 14 or above imo, afterall these are international athletes and it's their job, should be quite easy for all of them to get 12 as a minimum.

Yeah thats what i think as well but the thing is they dont only concentrate on fitness levels. Many aspects to cricket that need to be focused upon such as batting, bowling, fielding etc. Cricket isnt as fitness based as opposed to rugby, soccer etc. Its not that easy to 12. My friend was one of the few people that got over 12 (he actually got 13.4) and he made it to regional cross country.

My friend was one of the few people that got over 12 (he actually got 13.4) and he made it to regional cross country.

yeah but fitness is still an important aspect of the game thus the players should make time for it. i would say most adults between the ages of 18-35 if they trained 4-5 days a week, most if they tried would get 12, might not get much higher but they'd make 12 and i'm just talking regular people who are physically active 4-5 times a week. these guys are sportsmen by profession so they should be held to higher standards than the average person. in cricket they still run into bowl, run between the wickets and run around the field all day so just from match play their fitness level should be pretty good, if they do extra outside of that getting 12 should be no problem, 14 would be harder but most pro athlete's should be able to get 14 just due to their normal training regimes, unless of course they don't take it seriously enough which would be ridiculous since it's their profession and moneymaker.

12 in the beep test really is very very achievable if you're over 18, regularly active and you try your best, and for professional athlete's even during time off they still need to watch their diet and be somewhat active, besides when you train day in and day out a month off doesn't degrade your fitness levels that much, they're bodies should be so use to it that the fitness level doesn't drop off to much in that sort of space of time.

btw i'm not saying effort wise during the test it's easy to get to 12, when i say it's easy to get to 12 it's as i've said above, an adult who is regularly active and puts their maximum effort into it should be able to achieve 12 in the beep test. 13 and 14 are much less achievable levels for the average joe to reach even if they put training time and effort into it but for athlete's they should still be able to make it.

Oh thanks for the info. 10 is simply not good enough. If Rokibul gets 14 it means that he is as a fit as a rugby player (in terms of endurance). Thats a very impressive score. 14 is what soccer players have to get.

Mushy getting 12 is good enough for cricket. But everyone else to get 10 is simply horrible in professional cricket. Not good enough. Im dissapointed.

I wonder what Nasir and Shakib's beep tests are like - they run quickly between the wickets but get hapani very quickly too. I think the best results in these tests are achieved by those who can pace themselves over a distance.

Im curious as well to what Nasir got. But it doesnt matter if you run quick between wickets. You can be as quick as you like but you need the endurance to sustain the speed and do well in the beep test. My friend is a very quick runner. He does vey well in 100m races but when it comes to the beep test he isnt that good. This is because he simply doesnt have the stamina/endurance to go on for longer.

the beep test is also very mental, it's really easy to just give up even if you have something left in the tank. but that article posted is very true when it says

"Bat-and-ball skills will always count over athleticism, but fitness, done the right way, will help players use these abilities better and for longer"

also says fast bowlers over an entire test match potentially cover half a marathon (21km) and batsmen 6-8kms. add to that what players do in training and reaching 12 on the beep test should be very very achievable for a professional cricketer.

playing no cricket for a month shouldn't be an acceptable excuse as to why players aren't fit, it's their chosen profession, if they can't keep themselves fit then they're not doing their job.

shouldn't be a problem for cricketers since batsman should often play long innings' which requires regular running between the wickets and fast bowlers have to keep on steaming in. might be tougher for spinners since they don't really run in or as far but then they generally bowl more overs so they should have better stamina from that.

This is some info i found about the beep test scores of some cricketers

Ex-English cricketer Darren Gough was talking about his 2011 tour of Sri Lanka, where he considered he was at the peak of his fitness and definitely on the fittest team he as ever involved with. On the day they arrived in Sri Lanka they had to do the customary bleep test and get to level 12.2 to be available for selection. It was performed at lunchtime in heat of 120 degrees on a tennis court with no shade, with everyone passing which was surprising as usually there was one or two that failed every tour (from msm SportUK, 25 March 2012)
English and Nottinghamshire cricketer Samit Patel was brought back to the one-day side last year after achieving no better than 12 on the bleep test, even though England’s management have set a minimum standard of 12.5 for international players. He was included in the squad based on the grounds that he had made a significant improvement at last. (from The Telegraph online, 10 March 2012)
Nottinghamshire’s Samit Patel showed progress in his fitness when he recently posted 12.1 on the 'bleep test’ (from The Telegraph online, 18 June 2011)
Pakistani cricketer Younus Khan’s Beep Test score is 12.5 (from the Match Point blog on the Express Tribune online, March 2011)
25-year-old leg-spinner Davendra Bishoo, Guyana’s Cricketer of the year for 2010, was easily the best performer in the ‘Beep test’ and reached level 13.3 without breaking a sweat. (from Kaieteur News online, Dec 2010)
Cricketers from the Finnish national team are expected a score of 9 or above in bleep test. (from CricketFinland.com, June 2010)
It was reported that Australian coach Tim Nielson once challenged the Australian cricket academy boys that he would do better than them in the beep test, and he did it comfortably with 14.1. (from The Hindu online, June 2010)
The Pakistan cricket teams Australian born fitness coach David Dywer has been responsible for an improvement on their average beep-test scores from 10 to 11 over the last two years. (SMH, Jan 2010)
South African cricket captain Graeme Smith was reported to have achieved a Level 13 on the beep test three weeks previously (from a comment on The Science of Sport Blog, 30 Sept 2009).
Ex-South African champion Lance Klusener, at the age of 37, reached a very credible level 13.0 during testing for his ICL Royal Bengal Tigers side in India (cricinfo.com, Oct 2008)
NZ Central Districts player Brent Hefford achieved 13.3 on his first-up effort in the beep test (reported in Hawkes Bay Online, Aug 07).
Up and coming Australian cricketer from Tasmania, Ben Hilfenhaus, is regarded as one of the fittest players in Australian cricket. He has recorded a level 15 in the beep test (Jan 07).

Yeah exactly. But the thing is Bangladeshi cricketers barely play any test cricket so they are not used to playing long innings. None of our batsmen has played a long innings so they are not used to the requirements. And they dont run quick singles as much. That being said the bowlers should have the endurance.

And another thing, none of the Bangladeshi boys take quick singles and use their full body to reach the crease as often as we like. I see the Aussie boys always taking sharp singles and they dive into their crease with ease. So the athleticism of the Bangladeshi team can be questioned.

Three tons in ‘A’ team practice match



Bangladesh A preliminary squad’s Shamsur Rahman, Forhad Hossain and Dhiman Ghosh struck centuries to provide a run galore in their two-day practice match ahead of their India tour at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium on Friday.
Representing Bangladesh Red, middle-order batsman Forhad scored an unbeaten 137 runs while Shamsur made 106 as they posted 358-4 in their allotted 86 overs.
In reply Bangladesh Green’s wicketkeeper-batsman Dhiman Ghosh, coming in at number seven, cracked an unbeaten 103 in 98 balls to steer his side to a memorable win as they reached 361-6 in 83.5 overs.
Dhiman was well supported by Shuvagata Hom (61), Roqibul Hassan (47) and Alauddin Babu (40 not out). Off-spinner Sohag Gazi was the only successful bowler for the Red team as he claimed 4-107.
Bangladesh A team will tour India later this month to take part in a four-day tournament.

Six Test players in Bangladesh A for Indian series

By: Mohammad Isam

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has named six Test players in the Bangladesh A squad for the Shafi Darashah Invitational tournament in India. The tournament is a four-day competition hosted by the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA), which will feature local first-class teams and will run from July 27 to August 14 in Bangalore and Mysore.

However, the BCB didn't announce a captain for the team and it was learned that the decision would be made in "a day or two".

The six Test players in the squad include Shahriar Nafees, Imrul Kayes, Raqibul Hasan, Naeem Islam, Enamul Haque jnr and Shahadat Hossain. Shuvagata Hom, who has played a handful of ODIs, was also picked.

Shamsur Rahman, Mithun Ali and Farhad Hossain, who all scored more than 500 runs in the National Cricket League 2011-12, are in the 15-man squad, while the bowlers include offspinner Sohag Gazi, and seamers Alauddin Babu, Dolar Mahmud and Kazi Kamrul Islam - the latter two aggregated more than 25 wickets in the NCL.

Saqlain Sajib, Rajshahi's 23-year-old left-arm spinner who was one of only three bowlers who took 50 wickets in the NCL, did not find a place in the 15.

Robiul Islam, Nasiruddin Faruque, Arafat Sunny and Al-Amin Hossain were named standbys.

Bangladesh A 15-man squad
Shahriar Nafees, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mithun Ali, Shamsur Rahman, Raqibul Hasan, Shuvagata Hom, Farhad Hossain, Naeem Islam, Enamul Haque jnr, Sohag Gazi, Shahadat Hossain, Alauddin Babu, Dolar Mahmud, Kazi Kamrul Islam

Standbys: Nasiruddin Faruque, Arafat Sunny, Robiul Islam, Al-Amin Hossain

Can't believe they didn't pick Dhiman even after he scored a ton in the practice game. And picking Alaudding and Dollar ahead of Al-Amin for FC games? Terrible decisions.

To be fair, Mithun Ali did really well in the NCL as well. They had about the same amount of runs but Mithun had 3 centuries whereas Dhiman had just 1. Also Dollar performed as well as Al-Amin in the NCL. Alauddin Babu is 1 of our top prospects as the pace allrounder. Kazi Kamrul I believe should not have made it ahead of Al-Amin but maybe it's because they wanted a left arm seamer.

Overall, I think it's a good squad. Of course some players could have made it over others and there could be some debate but in the end I think the decisions were good.

Gowza
July 15, 2012, 08:12 AM
good that mominul and shuvagata are there. also glad naeem is in there as he's got the capability and the mentality to be solid for us in tests, good to see farhad named to as he's been one of the most consistent over the last few years in FC domestic. happy that babu and sohag are in there to.

this is shamsur's chance to prove he deserves a spot in the national team, if he fails here he can't complain really. imrul and raqibul are interesting ones, imrul with a very poor test record but reasonable ODI, if he performs he puts his name back up there for the test team.

surprised al-amin is a standby and not in the squad, would have been a good chance to see where he's really at.

why wasn't dhiman selected? he's not just the best keeper but the best keeper batsman in the FC format outside of the national team, been one of the best performing batsmen over the last 2-3 years in FC domestics so should have been picked for his batting alone.

no nur or mahmudul, 2 of our best spin prospects.

He deserves it since he was the highest wicket taker in the NCL and looked threatening in the BPL. I'm also happy they went with Gazi rather than another SLA. We need to nurture him since we don't have many specialist OB's. It would've been good to see how Nur would do on this tour but don't mind him in the U-19 team.

1.Imrul
2.Shamsur
3.SN
Only 3 top order?If one of them get injured then who is going to play at top order further more all 3 tare very erratic in performance.I expected Nazimuddin there.It was a good chance for Nazimuddin to gather some experience and confidence.Even Nasiruddin was a good choice.He had some runs in last carribian tour.Definately they are atleast 1 man deficite in top order.
2.Both Rabiul Islam and kamrul Islam were successfull in last A team tour.Kazi Kamrul,Dollar and Alauddin are selected ahead of. this two!! Does the selectors have intention to give exposure for these players?
Rather i expected Al Amin here.
So i am not happy with the team.

Exactly. A team always turns out to be for players who gets dropped from the National Team. Players dropped from National team dropped should have to prove their worth in the domestic league. And the guys who performed well in the domestic league but couldn't make the cut for national team need to be rewarded by getting selected for A team.

spot on, unless the ex-national didn't get an extended run or they are on the comeback then they shouldn't be in the A team, as you say A team should be for those who have done well in domestics that are on the fringes of the national team but need to be tested at a higher level.

In the selectors mindset, Shahadat is already penciled in as the leader of the attack for the first WI test, barring injury. Thus they want him to warm up by playing as many FC matches as possible. Not saying its the right move or not, but in the context of our current pace resources, its hard to argue otherwise. I mean Nazmul might be our leading pacer in the longer version!

Its the same reason they kept selecting Ash for the A team. In fact Ash would be captaining this side, if hadn't been for the Ireland T20 series. As Ajfar noted, we use the A team as a national team-reject pool. In fact we've done it so consistently thats what I thought A teams were for!

Al Amin crush U-19
Pace bowler Al Amin Hossain single handedly crushed the World Cup bound Under-19 national team as the Invitational Board XI handed the youngsters a humiliating 19-run defeat in the
low scoring practice
match in Khulna on Sunday. On a grassy wicket that comprised of moistures, Board XI were restricted to just 87 runs and it looked like an easy target before Al Amin wrecked through the opposition line-up as he grabbed 7-16 to end U-19’s innings on just 68 runs. The Board XI, comprising of players who were left out of the Bangladesh A team’s India tour, were able to play
only 25 overs as Dewan Sabbir grabbed 5-11. Mahmudul Hasan was the only batsman to show his authority over the youths as he scored 41 runs. Sabbir’s five-for was overshadowed by Al Amin’s seven-wicket haul as U-19 were bowled out in 26.3 overs. The result came as a wake-up call for the junior Tigers as they are expected to play in similar conditions in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Australia in August.

Look how SA lead a helping hand to Zim, England to Ireland and just playing first class cricket in a neighboring country will teach this kids how things are done and one day these players are going to be on the cricket board or affiliate themselves with cricket.

The best Ranji teams, from my understanding, are Delhi, Mumbai, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu. Hope we play against them.

Injured Kamrul to miss Bangladesh A series in India - ESPNCricinfo (http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/story/573396.html?CMP=chrome)

Left-arm fast bowler Kazi Kamrul Islam has sprained his ankle during a training session with Bangladesh A in Mirpur, ahead of their invitational tournament in India. Debashish Roy, the Bangladesh Cricket Board doctor, said it would take three weeks for Kamrul to recover, meaning he will miss the Indian tournament, which begins on July 27.

Kamrul has 120 wickets in 38 first-class matches for Chittagong, and was picked for the Bangladesh A side after finishing with 26 wickets in seven matches in the 2011-12 season's National Cricket League.

He is set to be replaced by pace bowler Robiul Islam, who was among the four standbys for the squad. Sylhet's Robiul has played three Tests, and taken 144 first-class wickets in 47 matches.

Eagerly waiting for this tour.None of the opposite team looked too much strong to me.Bangladesh should target for the final.Though in longer format our record in India is not that good.A team tour of Maharastra was a horrible one in 2010.anyway after joining the British coach we had reasonably better series at W I. So hoping for good result this time.

Gowza
July 23, 2012, 10:09 PM
i'm most interested to see how these players go:

Mominul Haque: one of our best batting prospects, this will give us more insight into his longer format progress.

Shamsur Rahman: he's done well lately and he's a top order batsman, something we are weak in atm

Imrul Kayes: poor test run, if he can perform here might have his name back in the test squad

Shuvagata Hom: another promising batting prospect, dropped prematurely from the ODI squad, want to see what he can do here.

Farhad Hossain: one of the most consistent domestic FC batsmen, never really outstanding consistency wise but always solid.

Naeem Islam: talent is there, records suggests he's more of a longer format batsman and he is on the fringes of the test squad.

Enamul Haque Jr: as always has done tremendously well domestically but he needs to show something here to put his name back into selection discussions for the national team.

Sohag Gazi: up coming offspinner, can bat a bit to, we need a world class off spinner to come through.

Alauddin Babu: high hopes for babu, imo clearly our best pace allrounder prospect atm

Dollar Mahmud: after his initial stint with the national team he has remained a performer in FC domestic cricket, and we are badly lacking in pacer performance at the highest level.

so basically after two away series is enough to know a player is krap... after all the investment and what not on him... I am sure you know he doesn't have mama chacha to get into the 11 right. so may be the replacement will be crappier then him. after all its bangladesh not austrlia...

Bottom line at one point he was considered a better batsman in longer version... now even A team is not good enough for him (after 2 series?)

You bring up a good point. Not saying Rock's been good because he's sucked but he's not the only 1 whose sucked these past 2 tours. In the WI tour, Nasir and Mominul were really the only ones that did well but everyone else was pretty bad. Even they connected just on 1 occasion out of 4.

In this tour, you can see again that only Mominul and to some extent Imrul have connected but even Imrul haven't done that well. It's really alarming that our batting lineup is failing on a consistent basis and it's just not another example as to why we need to start to make changes in our FC cricket.

Gowza
August 2, 2012, 06:46 PM
outside of rocks 300+ domestic FC score he's not done well in longer format cricket, not the best test record, so for me not that surprising that he's not doing well here. not good that our A team batsmen are failing though, needs to be rectified.

I am following Rock for last 5/6 years.
He have played 18 test innings average 19 with only one 50. His F C career is also very poor. Just wright off his 313* from his career it looks ugly. Have he done anything to be called as a longer version player? If he have, he ll have to prove it in domestic first. I can't remember any good record in domestic First class in recent past.
He is totally one dimensional player. He have proven nothing in longer format. 2 centuries in 74 F C indicates his longerversion worth. Ak 313 beche ar kotodin khabe.





Just look the performance in last 3/4 years.

Aftab shouldn't be in the same category as any of these guys. He's just hit 1 century including every form in his career and that too after being in the national team for a few years. At least Ash and SN have hit multiple centuries at the international level and domestics. Even though Rock has hit no centuries at the international level, he's still hit 4 centuries in his career. So as ATMR says, Aftab is no batsman.

Siddons was the first person who started to play with 3 openers. Idea was not bad. I liked the Idea but it seems trend is changing. Law and now R P none looked interested about 3 opener theory. In recent times our A team is also playing a genuine middle order at #3 rather than an opener.
It seems to me in next test we are going to play with a genuine middle order at #3. and i see good scope for Mominul.

Shohag Gazi is finally getting the recognition he deserves. I have been excited about him for the last year or so and have repeatedly said that he is the best spinner in the domestic circuit. He has always performed whenever his services have been called upon by the A team or the Academy. I envisage him being the first choice spinner in the NT in about a years time.

Mominul again proves what a gutsy little player he is. It is so encouraging to see him move up to number 3 and show his senior team-mates how it's done. I have said said already that if anyone should be making their debut now it should be Mominul and not Anamul. Hope he keeps it up and gets some really big scores in the rest of the tournament and make the selectors take notice.

I'm also happy with the way Sohag's been performing. He would bring in variety with his off breaks which would be great for Tests. Also looking forward to Nur but it looks like he'll take longer before he's ready.

And Anamul got in because of our top order issues and since he's a top order bat whereas Mominul is a middle order bat. If Mominul can prove he can bat at #3 than I say bring him in because he's out batting the rest of our A team batsmen and it's a huge issue for our team.

Gowza
August 3, 2012, 06:30 PM
#1 spinner in a years time? you think he will surpass both shakib and sunny? that's a bold statement...spinning spots are hotting up which can only be a good thing.


good to see mominul score some runs at #3 but he needs bigger scores than that i think to get a push up to the national team. as far as anamul goes he has been one of the best top order batsmen in domestic circuit for the past 2 years along with asif and our national team top order has been failing consistently so no surprise he got a call.

Ian Pont
August 4, 2012, 01:53 AM
Much talk about who is going to be a good player and people trying to predict the future.

Mominul who has caught the eye and along with Anamul, will need to be allowed to develop whether they succeed or fail initially.

We can see how Nasir Hossain has moved into the national team and is still learning. Players take time and need time. Very few are instant successes. We can see at the Olympics how people are taking 4 years to improve.

As a thought, it is FAR EASIER to bring a young player into a winning team, than into a losing one. Australia, England, India, South Africa can blood new players and give them experience of a few games in a generally winning environment. They don't have to play 'unknown kids' in the teams because others have failed badly.

Remember this when you look at Anamul, Mominul, Nasir Hossain and others. There is no chance they would feature in the way they do, if they were in the four nations above.

T20 cricket breaks a spinner: Enamul
August 05, 2012 16:26 GMT
By Gokul Gopal and Siddharth Vishwanathan
The Shafi Darashah trophy provides an ideal opportunity for an emerging player to get accustomed to the longer formats of the game and set his sights either for selection to his state team or his country. In the Karnataka Colts v Bangladesh 'A' match, played at the BGIS ground near Mysore road, there were three such players who found the tournament as a stepping stone for bigger things.
Since making his debut against New Zealand in 2008, Bangladesh opening batsman Imrul Kayes has not had that many fruitful outings in Test cricket in the past three years. Taking part in tournaments such as the Shafi Darashah helps a cricketer improve his Test skills, said Imrul.
The KSCA invitational tournament is a nice platform for cricketers according to Imrul, who says the tournament has helped him a lot and he is looking forward to playing more 4-day cricket tournaments in India. "The tournament is definitely helping me. India is a big country and many 4-day (cricket tournaments) are organised here. I told my manager that if I play at least twice a year (in such 4-day tournaments), my cricket will definitely improve."
A very pleasant weather was prevalent at the BGIS ground for the entire game and Imrul Kayes said he preferred playing in such conditions rather than the hot conditions back home. "I love this climate. We prepared for this tournament in hot conditions - around 38 to 40 degree centigrade. Our coaches said the Bangalore weather is hot and our mental setup coming to Bangalore, we were expecting hot conditions. But when we came here, it was totally different."
However, Imrul was not too happy with the pitch and said the wicket at the Alur ground, where Bangladesh A played their previous match, was much better. "Last match we felt happy because the wicket was very good. This wicket here is very uneven." The left-handed opener only managed 14 in the first innings of the game and in the second, he scored a patient 43 before getting out. Imrul, on his return to the pavilion, was pretty disappointed as he fell just when he had got his eye in.
Enamul Haq jnr, left arm spinner, said that there is a big difference in the pitches. The pitch that he played in the previous match at Alur was hard and there was some turn on offer. The BGIS pitch was soft and that resulted in a sluggish wicket.
Speaking about the tournament, Enamul too mentioned that it provided a good platform for upcoming players who are keen on playing Test cricket. The left-arm spinner also spoke about the challenges cricketers face while playing different formats. Especially for a spinners, he felt the advent of T20 cricket has made them more conservative, leaving them unable to exploit their potential to the fullest. "As a spinner our normal game is broken down. We tend to concentrate on bowling tighter lengths because of which we lost our flight and our variations. I observed Daniel Vettori and he lost everything, he lost his turn, just kept bowling straight. T20 is breaking down cricketers. As a young kid, one should not play T20s. It damages our bowling action."
Enamul cited another example of how T20 cricket affects a spinner. "I remember in the last game (against Baroda), a left arm spinner played for them - Bhargav Bhatt. He played for Kings Xi Punjab as well. I saw him bowl before in the Ranji Trophy, he was a class left-arm spinner. But in the last game, he changed something. I spoke to his coaches and they said after the IPL he changed a lot. That's why he's struggling a bit. He is young - like 20-21 (22 yrs), so it is a problem."
The match at BGIS was a low scoring encounter which the Colts managed to win by five wickets. Spinners ruled the roost through out the match with young left-arm spinner Arjun Shetty claiming a fifer in the first innings which helped the Colts bowl out Bangladesh A for 110. The Karnataka side, in reply, posted 223 thanks to a half century by Nischal. Off spinner Sohag Ghazi was the main wicket taker for the Bangladesh A team, picking up six wickets while Enamul bagged 3.
Bangladesh A, in their second essay scored 232 with skipper Sunil Raju, an off-break bowler, claiming a fifer while Arjun scalped 4. The Colts managed to reach the target thanks to a half-century by Kayan Abbas but not before losing half their side and once again it was spin that did the damage with Ghazi claiming all the wickets to fall.
The Shafi Darashah trophy is being played at grounds that are located in the outskirts of Bangalore, and a match in the country-siderr has a definitely a different feel to it. Playing at locations far away from the city also has its own advantage. Not manyrr people watching the game and not much of shouting from the stands means that the players are let alone to concentrate on their games and not give much thought about the crowd.
However, that was not the case for the upcoming talent Mayank Agarwal as the children from the BGIS school, who came to know that Mayank was batting, came in numbers to cheer for the RCB player. The batsman managed to score 45 in the first innings before getting out and on his return to the dressing room, the children line up the get his autograph. Word had spread out that Mayank Agrawal was in the dressing room and more kids poured in and some of them were unable to contain their excitement.
The crowd favourite Mayank Agarwal, speaking to Cricbuzz, said he viewed the tournament as an opportunity to develop his batting for the longer formats. "I am working on my game. If I am playing a four day game, I'm looking to play a certain number of balls. Runs are immaterial there. I try and keep counting the number of balls I play. So the longer I play, it gives me more chance to succeed."
Mayank Agarwal is yet to play for Karnataka and his participation in these four-day tournaments is definitely a stepping stone to playing Ranji Trophy cricket. For the likes of Imrul Kayes and Enamul Haq jnr, playing in Shafi Darashah and similar tourneys helps improve their game and stay in good touch to play Testy cricket for Bangladesh.

Good that imrul is thinking of organising more 4-day cricket for himself, more BD players need to take this sort of initiative. In regards to enamul's words I think he is right, a lot if spinners change for t20 and it's gut worse.

One thing is very interesting here. We had a decent W I tour. We fought against W I A very well. And now falling against Karnatak team. It indicates how strong Indian Ronji teams are.Participating this tourney was a good decision.

this tournament has made me very interested to see how sohag and mominul will develop, can't wait for their next matches, they seem to be 2 very promising cricketers. enamul has always been a talent, just has never fullfilled it internationally, the problem for him is that there are other spinners doing well also plus the spinners in the national squad are quality so it's tough to break into the national team atm and enamul kind of gets put behind the other up and comers since he's already had a turn and not done so great. just look at shuvo, great domestically, average internationally, once seen as a very bright prospect, now he's never talked about and is nowhere near contending for national team duties.

Series is finished
Lets have the performance analysis now:
In top order Both SN and Shamsur failed miserably Only Imrul had some ipmact.
In middle order Rock and Shuvagoto failed terribly only Naeem had some impact.Mominul did well.
So ok to,Imrul,Mominul and Naeem.
I have a feeling that this three is going to get a call at next test squard.

If these performances are enough for these guys to get a call up to the Test squad, then we should seriously consider forfeiting our Test status for a few years and focus on grooming quality at home like Zimbabwe did.

I was totally unhappy with the squard when it was declared.I missed Nasiruddin Faruk and Nazimuddin.
Result is just pathetic.our boys still have not learnt how to save a match.All the big names there.
This tour have proven that Rock is not a longer version material.Shuvagoto is not ready for international cricket.

any other jodu modu and kodu wouldnt have made much difference....the fact is that our A team which is full of test experience gets beaten twice in three matches to teams that cant be even dubbed as the Indian C team...this has to be considered one of the disastrous tours in terms of performance for our bench teams.....in addition when your captain has to be sent packing home from the middle of the tour it is safe to assume that all is not well...

We play few enough tests to do this automatically...no need to cut of the two tests we play each year. In fact we need more tests vs Zim/WI/NZ/SL. We need less bushit tours to associates countries that arent even official matches! Play 4 dayers against afghanistan at fatullah if you have to. Kintu na, BCB t20 shopno dektese!

BCB just had a press release: They have mistakenly put BD "A" team as tag..actually this is BD "F" team. BCB and selectors realized this mistake after the series is over and now will coordinate and update the team iternary. (source: ami koichi abar jigae)

IMO Dolar, Shahadat and Robiul is not a wonderful pace bowing attack nor do I feel they are pushing to be the next "taxis off the rank" for the national side. It's 18 months since I left and I don't see any signs of improvement whatsoever in the fast bowling reserves below Mash, Rubel, Nazmul and Shafiul.

My second worry is that Krishnappa Gowtham, who took 12 wickets in the match against BD, is not even a first-class bowler in Indian domestic cricket.

Scoring 50s is not a sign of success. 100s are the mark of quality if a player is genuinely staking a claim for the national side.

Bitterly disappointing....

It's really baffling how Gowtham (off spinner) who didn't play a single FC match before uprooted our Test experienced top/middle order

Gowza

tbf imrul was never test quality, raqibul wasn't either, naeem has only had a handful of chances so never proved himself at the test level, nafees at one time was decent, mominul, shuvagata are up and comers not yet fully tested in the international arena. bowling wise shahadat is a proven failure in international cricket, dolar hasn't played international cricket for years and even so it was for just a short stint. they may have test match experience but they were never test quality so i really don't think we should dwell on that to much. the bigger problem is not that the national team rejects have done badly, but that this is the current level of the A team.

it did look like a pretty strong team on paper, obviously impossible to say what the problem was without watching but let's be real, the opposition isn't world class either, decent they most likely are but they aren't even FC teams so i think the performance of the A teams indicates lack of mental fortitude more than anything. i mean we have seen from a lot of the BD A players that they have the skills, their problem is managing their skills and the mental side of things.

Yup Naimul vai, whenever our A team go to visit India their state teams show us our weakness. Last time Maharastra Jn team pack us. Now Karnatak Jn team pack us. Difference is clear. No way but to improve our F C. Nothing will happen as long as we continue to play 22 F C matches a year.

Bangladesh A lacked first-class experience

Stuart Barnes, the Bangladesh A coach, has said that his side's dismal performance at the Shafi Darashah tournament was down to the lack of first-class exposure. Barnes, however, avoided commenting on the drama that surrounded the captain Shahriar Nafees being sent back home due to misconduct before the third group game in Bangalore.

The second-string Bangladesh side started off the four-day competition on a positive note when they drew the opening game against Baroda Cricket Association XI but lost the other two group games - against KSCA Colts by five wickets and KSCA XI by 155 runs - to be eliminated from the group stage.

Barnes had ten international cricketers at his disposal, which included seven who have played Tests for Bangladesh. But the players showed their lack of first-class match experience, failing to grind it out over a period of four days.

"What I saw in India reflected the number of one-day matches compared to four-day matches that the players play here [in Bangladesh]," Barnes told ESPNcricinfo. "The batsmen need patience, discipline, and be mentally tough enough to be within their batting plan because their job is to bat all day. But in order to get to that point where they need to know how to bat all day, they need to practice it in matches domestically."

"I was impressed with one or two aspects because it was clear to me that some were trying to do things differently. But the probability said that, because of the number of one-day matches that they play here, they weren't just going to be able to switch to the different skill-set needed for four-day cricket. It was disappointing not to win any games but that was a fair reflection that they don't know how to play the longer game yet."

One of the weaknesses that Bangladesh batsmen showed consistently during the tour, according to Barnes, was against offspin bowling. Bangladesh lost half of their wickets to offspinners. "We lost in different wickets, for different reasons. We lost 49% of our total wickets to off-spin, which surprised me initially but when you look at it closely, there aren't many off-spinners in Bangladesh. The only difference in the wicket was the offspinner managing to get more bounce. We lost for skill reasons more than anything else," he said.

Doubts were raised about the atmosphere in the dressing room after the captain, Nafees, was sent back in the middle of the tour. Barnes, who was involved in the decision-making, did not comment on the issue. During the second game, Nafees had expressed his anger towards the Umpires after his dismissal, later to be warned by the match referee.

"It's important to have an environment that encourages players to learn, and not just about skills but about playing in different parts of the world. That incident was unfortunate but I won't speak about it until I talk to my board directors here," Barnes said.

According to newspaper reports, some players also showed dissent towards the trainer during the A team's camp in Khulna before they headed to India, but the team management didn't inform the BCB nor take any disciplinary actions. "I had quite a big squad to work with in Khulna. My job as coach is to challenge players, observe how they react to being challenged. I've mentioned before that I'm very keen on fitness to improve but that doesn't happen in a one-day series. I experienced different reactions of players to all my challenges. I am thick-skinned and it was just interesting to see how they react. I didn't take anything personally. I'm looking for players who think on their feet quickly," he said.

The 42-year-old Englishman was impressed with Mominul Haque, Naeem Islam, Shahadat Hossain and Enamul Haque Jr for trying to take a different approach while batting. He told the batsmen that with their high strike-rates in first-class cricket, all they need to do is bat a little bit longer to increase their batting averages.

"I honestly believe every player wants success. But the question is what the success looks like to them individually. Is it to improve their batting average over the next two years, by five runs. What I stressed to all the batters, their strike-rates suggest that if they bat another 20 balls per innings, their average would go up very easily. I believe players are motivated by different reasons," he said.

Bangladesh A's next assignment is against the West Indies High Performance team in September. They will play a four-day game, three one-day matches and two Twenty20 games.
