Yh he is one of the most promising young player right now. Has been doing ok but sometimess I don't like when I see him batting in the middle order coz hE CAN be very solid opener. His bowling can be very handy too. Used to bowl more often but now turned into a occasional bowler.

THIS POST (http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/report.php?p=1540861) from another thread has my observations for those interested.

I hope this thread is kept alive through wonderful performances, and together with Bijauy's, becomes as heavy as Shakib and Tamim's one day. :)

I posted the relevant rules several years ago and it has come up ever year. I'm on the way to the airport so can't dig it up for you, but the gist is there is a cutoff date prior to the subsequent U19 WC. So you can be 19 +n days and still be eligible.

Calendar year for cricket starts from September 1. Soumya was still under 19 last September, so he is eligible to play in all U/19 tourneys till next September. Don't worry, other teams also fields above 19 years olds in U/19 tourneys, going by this rule (associate teams are allowed to even field 20 years olds).

And yeah, congrats Soumay! A double century is an excellent achievement, even against some schoolboys from Qatar!

^ I never rated Atahar Ali much as a bowler, but he was a decent batsman in international standard (much better than JO, Biddut, Opee, Rokon, etc, that came in the stage after him). IMO, it's too early to compare Soumya with anyone.

Figure of speech. I think you need to go to the link and find out how long ago that comment was posted by "jisaan".

No one is comparing him The Great Athar Ali.

BTW I am 38 and have not got much memory of Athar Ali opening the bowling. You must be old Eshen.

[বাংলা]‘ভেবেছিলাম নিজের রেকর্ড ভাঙব’[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]৫০ ওভারের ম্যাচে ডাবল সেঞ্চুরি যেকোনো পর্যায়ের ক্রিকেটেই বিশাল কৃতিত্ব। অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ এশিয়া কাপে কাতারের বিপক্ষে বাংলাদেশের তরুণ সৌম্য সরকার কাল করে দেখালেন সেটাই। তরুণ এই ওপেনারের অবশ্য এর চেয়ে বড় কীর্তিও আছে। মালয়েশিয়া থেকে টেলিফোনে জানালেন, টপকে যেতে চেয়েছিলেন নিজের সেই কীর্তি

 কেমন লাগছে ডাবল সেঞ্চুরি করে?
সৌম্য সরকার: খুবই ভালো লাগছে। এশিয়া কাপের মতো আসরে ২০৯ রান করতে পেরেছি। আত্মবিশ্বাস এখন বেড়ে গেছে অনেক।
 ৫০ ওভারের ক্রিকেটে এর আগে সর্বোচ্চ কত রান করেছেন?
সৌম্য: সালটা মনে নেই। তবে অনূর্ধ্ব-১৬ ক্রিকেটে একবার ২৫০ রান করেছিলাম। ক্লাব পর্যায়ের ক্রিকেট ছিল সেটা। আজ (গতকাল) ভেবেছিলাম নিজের ওই রেকর্ডটা ভাঙব। আউট না হয়ে গেলে সম্ভব ছিল। আমি আউট হওয়ার পরও আরও পাঁচ-ছয় ওভার বাকি ছিল।
 কাতারের বোলিং কি খুব বেশি দুর্বল ছিল?
সৌম্য: বোলিং যে খুব খারাপ ছিল, তা নয়। উইকেট ভালো ছিল, ওরা সুইংও পাচ্ছিল বেশ। তবে পেস খুব বেশি না। সেটাও একটা সমস্যা। আগে থেকে বোঝা যাচ্ছিল না বল জোরে আসবে না আস্তে আসবে।
 আপনি আর আসিফ আহমেদ ছাড়া দলের বাকি ব্যাটসম্যানরা ব্যর্থ কি সে কারণেই?
সৌম্য: ওই যে বললাম, বল আস্তে আসবে না জোরে, সেটা বোঝা যাচ্ছিল না। শট খেলা কঠিন এসব বলে। মিস টাইমিং হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা থাকে বেশি। আমার সঙ্গের ওপেনার আসলাম যেমন সুইং বলে ড্রাইভ খেলতে গিয়ে কট বিহাইন্ড হয়েছে।
 গত জাতীয় লিগে খুলনার হয়ে ৫৩৩ রান করেছিলেন। কিন্তু ভিক্টোরিয়ার সর্বশেষ প্রিমিয়ার লিগে সে রকম পারফরম্যান্স ছিল না। ৮ ম্যাচে মাত্র ১৬৪...
সৌম্য: প্রিমিয়ার লিগে কোনো ফিফটি না থাকলেও নিয়মিত ৩০-৩৫ করে করেছি। আসলে লিগে যে জায়গায় ব্যাটিং করেছি সেখানে আমি স্বচ্ছন্দ না। পছন্দের জায়গায় ব্যাটিং পাইনি।
 মালয়েশিয়ায় গিয়ে হঠাৎ করে এতটা ভালো ফর্মে আসার কারণ কী?
সৌম্য: এখানে আসার আগে সিসিডিএম একাদশের বিপক্ষে কয়েকটা প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচ খেলেছি আমরা। প্রথম ম্যাচে মাত্র ৪ রান করলেও পরের দুই ম্যাচে আমার রান ৫০ ও ৮৪। তো ওই ফর্মটাই আরও ভালো হয়েছে মনে হচ্ছে।
 এই ম্যাচেই পেসার আবু হায়দার ৯ উইকেট পেলেন। তাঁর বোলিংটা কেমন দেখলেন?
সৌম্য: অসাধারণ বোলিং করেছে ও। আবু হায়দারের বল দুই দিকেই সুইং করে, এটা তার প্লাস পয়েন্ট। সবচেয়ে বড় কথা ও খুব ভালো জায়গায় বল ফেলেছে এবং ধারাবাহিকভাবেই তা করে গেছে। ওর বলে কাতারের তিন ব্যাটসম্যান তো কট বিহাইন্ডই হলো। হ্যাটট্রিক না করলেও দুবার সে সুযোগ তৈরি করেছিল। খেলা শেষে দেখলাম তার ৮৫ শতাংশ বলই ডট।
 পরিবারের আর কেউ আছেন খেলাধুলায়?
সৌম্য: আমাদের বাড়ি সাতক্ষীরায়। আমার বাবা সাতক্ষীরায় ফুটবল খেলতেন। মেজো ভাই খেলতেন ক্রিকেট।
 আপনার ক্রিকেটে আসা কি সে কারণেই?
সৌম্য: অনেকটা সে রকমই। ছোটবেলা থেকেই খেলাধুলায় আগ্রহ ছিল আমার। বাসা থেকে পালিয়ে খেলতে চলে যেতাম। তবে পরিবার থেকে যে খুব বেশি বাধা দিত, তা-ও নয়। মেজো ভাই-ই বরং ২০০৬ সালে আমাকে বিকেএসপিতে ভর্তি করিয়ে দেন। সেই থেকে শুরু।[/বাংলা]

Of course he has potential, one of the best youngsters going around BD but like all the others he struggles with consistency. 200 in a one-day match even if against poor opposition is a mighty feat, scored when it mattered today.

We need to keep playing him to find out, only 3 matches in, looks good but as you say needs to go on to score those 50s and 100s, but so far in this World Cup he's looked better than both tamim and anamul.

The thing abt a talent like soumya is that it doesnt look like he will struggle badly against top class bowlers rather his positive attitude and oozing confidence will help him. Comparing him to someone like jahurul is totally wrong because jahurul will struggle badly against good bowlers.

As i said before Soumya reminds me off a young and confident tamim. Not sure if its a good or bad thing cos tamim cant convert but then again today's tamim cant convert either. Has alot of talent but needs to have temperament if he is gonna last or else he will be a flash in the pan type batsmen.

MohammedShamim
February 26, 2015, 07:59 AM

Not very excited. We have seen such talent before. They come..impress in the first few matches, play fearless cricket because there are no expectations. Once opposition starts finding their weakness, they get figured out and return to medocrity. e.g.
Ashraful, Tamim, Junaid, Nasir etc

Hope Sarkar doesnt follow these guys. He looks very classy though.

BanCricFan
February 26, 2015, 09:18 AM
Great batting prospect. This lad is unbelievably talented. If he tightens up his shot selection and game outside the off stump he will be prolific in international cricket. He should learn to pace his innings better. I don't want to say that he should curb his attacking instincts more but he must spend more time in the middle and play longer innings. A wonderful talent.

Ashraful didn't get "found out" -except by the ACSU unit. This guy, on his day, could tear apart any attack .

Yes I understand that so far he failed to produce a dominating innings. But he haven't played enough.

So far what he showed us is: He is exciting, he is confident, he can be an asset in our anemic batting order and h He e has the technical tools to open in this level. All he needs is some patience, determination and experience.

I would rather try our luck in ODI opening with him than Anamul or Tamim at this moment. He may not be the perfect choice, but he is the best available choice in this WC.

Most of our batsmen are not comfortable in playing on fast bouncy surface. This boy looks to enjoy such conditions.

Way to go SS.

SS is an attacking batsman, has good technique:up: However, he has not extended his innings so far all the games he played in Australia. Top order batsman has to carry the innings. 20-30 good runs wont add value most of the time. SS should carry on n build up innings- this is my piece of advice.

In the practice match against ireland he was playing some amazing cricket and looked like flying to a century. Unfortunately he got run out. The scoreboard was terrible wen he came in. He looks to be that guy who goes looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Positive player and we need that at the top. Yeah sure he seems to bat like junaid with a good looking 20 before getting out but he is showing much more confidence and positivity that i haven't seen from a youngster for quite a while.

There's no question he's got good technique; but his got an advantage most other BD batters don't. His height. I know it's not absolutely necessary but when you play on bouncy pitches, it can come to your aid.
In terms of his aggressiveness; his got that. But unless he learns how to select his shots soon his weakness will be exploited and he will be a ball less chicken like Tamim (who I don't think is fully fit) just to keep his place in the team.

Lol height isnt a big factor as a batsmen. take mushy for example...

He has no balance. That one six he hit vs AFG, he almost fell after going half way thru the swing. His initial foot movement is forward. That's a no-no in these parts of the world.

his first-class and list A record is sort of bad but my god he looks like a bloody champ while batting ..if i was a neutral i would watch him hit 5 4s and get out anyday over anamul scoring a 100 ..but from a bangladesh fan point of view he needs to me more consistent at least start scoring in the 60s

if he looks good for 20s/ 30s he better get a 50 vs Scott, that will give him some confidence against Eng & NZ.

And he only just improved his list A record this season, but he does look very good so it's worth giving him some chances.

Upto this point, its just some of us, just some fans noticed and saw something special in him without (of-course) not enough stat to back it up. So the question in out mind (and to others) was "Are we over hyping him?".

After reading this article from an outsider and an expert, now we can say in this particular incident, may be we are not wrong, may be he have shown enough to deserve more serious look.

Soumya is a stylish eye pleasing bat. His cover drive boundary against Sri Lanka gave me a lot of pleasure. I want him to get established but get nervous when he bats like I do with all of our batsmen. I wish him lots of success.

Well Bijoy likely to be out for rest of the games so his got 2/3 games to prove his worth.

So far looks class but gives his wicket away far too easily.

If he can't sort his temperament out he'll be another Zunaid. Far too early of course. Hope he gets a good amount of chances and can learn from his mistakes

Thought he was brilliant in the field today. Set a new Bangladesh record of 4 catches in a match. The catch of Shakib's bowling was a peach.

Nafi
March 4, 2015, 11:28 PM
worst common and unlucky way to get out (not as unlucky as Riyad though..) strangled down the legside. Big shame, a good score today would have been given him confidence.

March 5, 2015, 07:18 AM
Seeing the highlights, his dismissal was pathetic. This Ashrafulish type batting won't be a good thing for our team in the long run. So much talent, but it'll be wasted if he doesn't work hard at building a cool temperament and consistency. If anything he should work hard like Sakib, and if he can get a county season he will learn what professionalism is. His type of flash in the pan is very frustrating to watch.

dont know whats holding this guy back from scoring big...but hell...he's holding himself back just like all other players.

Fazal
March 5, 2015, 07:48 AM
But I have mixed feeling...

Yes he failed to take the opportunity that came to him only because of injury. Therefore feeling bad for him.

On the other hand, he didn't clogged the RR when the target is huge i.e. a 40 ball 20 run type innings. As a matter of fact... Tamim and Riyad both rectified their batting strategy, that was also comforting to me. They play will positive intend form the beginning and never let the RR create additional pressure, they took care of the RR from the beginning, and that made other batsman's job (Rahim, Sakib, Sabbir) much easier.

Unbelievable talent but needs to deliver now. Must get in first before playing shots. As a fielder, probably even better than Sabbir and Nasir!

Why is Mashrafe not giving him the ball? One or two overs wont harm.

Seems like the captain is doing the same as what Mushfiq used to do with Ziaur Rahman.

England game is very crucial for him. Even a 40 will help him to keep his place for the NZ game.

Now I know why this guy never scores big in domestic cricket even after he getting starts in pretty much every time he bats. He loves to gift his wicket :(

March 5, 2015, 09:31 AM
Come on guys, he has played only 4 ODIs so far. He should be given at least 10 ODIs before being judged one way or the other. He should be persisted with in the WC and in the next home series, at least.

I did not want Soumya either, but now that he is in WC squad, don't find it fair to drop him prematurely.

ammark
March 5, 2015, 11:53 AM
Eshen bhai, you are correct, it's too early to judge so harshly. But if he doesn't develop his game to be more patient, then we will have yet another Ashraful/Aftab/Shahriar Nafees. He has excellent technique and class in his batting. He needs to work on temperament and treating good balls with respect. His past 2 dismissals are cringe-worthy.

Fazal
March 5, 2015, 01:02 PM
I think its too premature to compare Sarkar's failure (so far) to the paramount failures of Ashraful and SN. Ashraful and SN were given opportunities in 10s and 20s of series over almost for a decade where as this is just Sarkar's frist series in his whole career.

This guys was picked up from nowhere, let him play this series and learn from the coaches (and from his mistakes) and see how he grows or fails to grow over next few series. Until then I refuse to compare him with the players like Ash or SN.

NoName
March 5, 2015, 02:18 PM
Yeh kind of harsh to jump the gun on him, its his first series and in Aus/NZ of all places. That is as alien as it gets for him, at least give him a shot in one of our home series.

Best fielder we ever had? That's not saying much, but is he? I say he is.

Not just about catches, stops, and throws. But just the way he runs in general, like a bonafide athelte.

epitaph
March 6, 2015, 02:29 AM
A new player must play 3 series or for 6 months - whichever comes last - before dropping him is considered. I think most of us are just talking about his poor application/temperament with the bat so far. Not saying we should drop him already.

His avg and decision-making with the bat so far do leave more to be desired and are slightly worrisome. But he has excellent technique and is also a top fielder.

With him, Sabbir, and Nasir, our fielding improves drastically.
