This is probably going to be the biggest event of BD Cricket in this year. This is a complete series with 3 test, 5 ODIs and 1 T20 against an ICC top 8 Team. Considering that they are the team just ahead of us in Ranking, this should prove where we stand. We have the home advantage and that should even out the difference between these two teams.

Expecting a good contest against WI in this series. WI players are quiet focused and have already started talking about the series immediately after winning the T20 WC beating Srilanka.

Are we taking it, that seriously? Our coach is on leave, as we hear that he is stopping whatever spin bowling practices the team planned. We aren't yet hearing,when the team will start practicing, the NCL doesn't look to be starting as planned on 14 oct. if we are caught un-aware by WI in this series, if we fail to compete in tests and ODIs against WI, we will surely have tough time justifying our progress that we all had been almost certain after the Asia Cup. So this series will also confirm if our Asia Cup performance was fluke or genuine.

And we shouldn't forget that the last time we visited WI while the WI players were on strike and we won convincingly against them. Many of us felt that we could have won it even if their players weren't on strike. It was said to be Gayle the only difference. Now they have shown in the final that they can win even a WC final without Gayle. The same guy (Sammy) who captained that team, will still be their captain. We have to win and compete in this series, if we want to earn any respect from the world, if we have to count our previous wins respectfully and if we want to get rid of that Minnow tag.

In that context, This is going to be the most important series after we received our test status. All the other series against g8 teams, we could cover up as learning process, but this series is more about proving our ability than just learning. Many are sitting out there watching, to justify their negative views on us and teams like Ireland and Sco, if not Afg, are waiting too, to extract maximum benefits & favors of ICC out of our bad performance in this series.

So this series is very very important for us to justify a lot and to prove a lot to every cricket fan, players, Journalists and administrators all over the cricketing world. A thrashing by WI in this series will throw us into the Dark ages once more. Do you see us being able to prove ourselves here?

Please do post any news and views you have or come across that might have an impact on this series.

বন্ধ হয়েই আবার চালু সাকলায়েনের স্পিন ক্যাম্পবোর্ড-কোচ-ম্যাকিন্স জটিলতা বাড়ছেই

ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক : 'কার অনুমতি নিয়ে স্পিন বোলিং ক্যাম্প করাচ্ছেন সাকলায়েন'- ই-মেইল বার্তায় বজ নিনাদ শুনিয়ে দেওয়ার উপায় নেই, তবে রিচার্ড পাইবাসের ভাষার গজরানি ঠিকই আছড়ে পড়েছে বিসিবির ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটিতে। তাই তাৎক্ষণিকভাবে বন্ধ করে দেওয়া হয় সাকলায়েন মুশতাকের অধীনে আবদুর রাজ্জাক, মাহমুদ উল্লাহ এবং ইলিয়াস সানির বিশেষ স্পিন শিক্ষা কার্যক্রম। তবে সন্ধ্যায় জাতীয় দলের কোচের স্বেচ্ছাচারিতা প্রতিরোধে নিজেদের কর্মপরিকল্পনা ঠিক করার শুরুতেই ওই স্পিন ক্যাম্প পুনরায় চালুর সিদ্ধান্ত নেওয়া হয় বলে জানিয়েছেন বিসিবি পরিচালক জালাল ইউনুস। একইসঙ্গে জাতীয় দলের জন্য পরবর্তী পরিকল্পনাও দ্রুত জানাতে বলা হবে রিচার্ড পাইবাসকে।
জাতীয় দলের প্রতিটি সফরের পরই ছুটিতে যান রিচার্ড পাইবাস। তবে সেই ছুটি কার কাছ থেকে নেন কিংবা কবে ফিরবেন, তা কাউকে আগাম জানানোর প্রয়োজন মনে করেন না তিনি। এবারও দেশে পৌঁছে ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সকে এক ই-মেইল বার্তায় পাইবাস জানিয়েছেন, 'কবে ফিরব এখনো ঠিক করে উঠতে পারিনি।' এমনকি, আগামী মাসে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে হোম সিরিজের প্রস্তুতি কবে শুরু হবে, সেটিও জানাননি তিনি, যে আচরণে বোর্ডের সম্মিলিত উদ্বেগের কথা জানিয়েছেন জালাল ইউনুস, 'ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সফরের প্রস্তুতি কবে শুরু হবে, সেটি কোচ জানাননি। প্রধান নির্বাহীকে বলা হয়েছে যেন তাঁর কাছ থেকে দ্রুত একটা প্রোগ্রাম জেনে নেন।' ছুটির বিষয়টি পাইবাস অন্ধকারে রেখে দেওয়ায় স্পষ্টই বিরক্ত বিসিবির এই পরিচালক, 'চুক্তিতে বছরে ৪৫ দিন ছুটি পাবেন তিনি। এর বেশি ছুটি বিসিবি অনুমোদন দেবে না।'
অনুমোদন তো পরের কথা, রিচার্ড পাইবাস তো অনুমতি নেওয়ারই প্রয়োজন মনে করছেন না! বুধবার বিকেলে বোর্ড সভায় হাজিরা দেওয়ার পরই সবাই জানতে পারেন যে কোচ ছুটিতে যাচ্ছেন। জাতীয় দল এবং এর টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টের চিরন্তন অভিভাবক ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটি থেকে অনুরোধ করা হয়েছিল যেন নথি হিসেবেও ছুটির কথা জানিয়ে একটি ই-মেইল করেন তিনি। সেটি করতেও রাজি হননি পাইবাস। অবশ্য হবেন কেন? ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সের কর্তৃত্বই যে স্বীকার করেন না পাইবাস!
সম্প্রতি আরেকটি ই-মেইল বার্তায় তা নাকি সাফ জানিয়েও দিয়েছেন রিচার্ড পাইবাস। নিজের তো বটেই, জাতীয় দলের খেলোয়াড় এবং কোচিং স্টাফদের দায়িত্ব থেকে শুরু করে ছুটি-ছাঁটাও নির্ধারণ করবেন- নিয়োগ প্রক্রিয়ার সময় নাকি বোর্ডের ঊর্ধ্বতন মহল থেকে এমনই আশ্বাস পেয়েছিলেন তিনি। বাংলাদেশে জবাবদিহিতার একটা 'জায়গা'ই চেনেন পাইবাস- বোর্ড সভাপতি। এর মাঝখানে অন্য কোনো কর্তৃপক্ষের কর্তৃত্ব মানেন না পাইবাস। অবশ্য কোচকে এমন কর্তৃত্ব দেওয়ার কথা নাকি সহকর্মীদের কাছে অস্বীকার করেছেন বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল। 'কোচকে সর্বময় ক্ষমতা দেওয়ার বিষয়টি অস্বীকার করেছেন', জানিয়েছেন জালাল ইউনুস। তবে বোর্ডেরই একটি অংশ মনে করে স্টুয়ার্ট ল হুট করে চলে যাওয়ায় খ্যাতিমান কোচ নিয়োগে মরিয়া বিসিবি সভাপতি মৌখিক কোনো প্রতিশ্রুতি দিয়েও থাকতে পারেন। সে কারণেই কিনা চুক্তিতে জাতীয় দলের সর্বময় ক্ষমতা এবং ছুটির ব্যাপারে পূর্ণ স্বাধীনতা না থাকায় তাতে সই করছেন না রিচার্ড পাইবাস। সে ক্ষেত্রে কোচের চাহিদা পূরণের জন্য চুক্তির শর্তে পরিবর্তন করা হবে বলেই কাল জানিয়েছেন জালাল, 'সেই সম্ভাবনা নেই। তাঁর কাছে আমরা কাজ চাই। এত শর্ত পূরণ করে সেটি আদায় করা সম্ভব হবে না।'
এদিকে শুধু হুটহাট ছুটিই নয়, আরো কয়েকটি কারণে বিসিবির মাথাব্যথার কারণ হয়ে দাঁড়িয়েছেন রিচার্ড পাইবাস। নিজে ছুটিতে গিয়ে একাডেমীর হেড কোচ রিচার্ড ম্যাকিন্সের ওপর ছেড়ে দিয়ে গেছেন 'বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেট'। ম্যাকিন্সের নির্দেশই আমার নির্দেশ- পাইবাসের এমন একটি 'অনুমোদন' পেয়ে ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটির কর্তৃত্বের ওপর সওয়ার হয়েছেন একাডেমীর কোচ। এতে করে একটা ভজঘট অবস্থার সৃষ্টি হয়েছে বিসিবির ব্যবস্থাপনায়। আবার ম্যাকিন্স বিশেষ অনুমোদন পেলেও সাকলায়েন মুশতাক কেন তিনজনকে নিয়ে আলাদা অনুশীলন করছেন, এ নিয়ে তীব্র আপত্তি জানিয়েছেন পাইবাস। তাঁর কথা, 'আমি ক্রিকেটারদের বিশ্রাম দেওয়ার পরও কেন তাদের মাঠে পরিশ্রম করানো হচ্ছে?' মজার ব্যাপার হলো, সাকলায়েনের স্পিন ক্যাম্পে 'এ' দলের এনামুল হক জুনিয়রসহ আরো কয়েকজনকে এনে ভিড়িয়েছেন ম্যাকিন্স। প্রশ্ন হলো, বিশ্বকাপ শেষে ২৭ সেপ্টেম্বর দেশে ফেরা রাজ্জাকদের যদি আরো বিশ্রামের দরকার হয়ে থাকে, তাহলে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ হাই পারফরম্যান্সের বিপক্ষে সিরিজ শেষ করার দুই দিন পরই কেন মাঠে এনামুলরা?
কোচের বিশ্রাম ফেলে গতকাল অনুশীলন করেছেন জাতীয় দলের অধিনায়ক মুশফিকুর রহিমও। তা ছাড়া জাতীয় দলের প্রতিটি সদস্যের জন্য আলাদা আলাদা ট্রেনিং শিডিউলও তৈরি করে দিয়েছেন ট্রেনার গ্রান্ট লুডেন। তাহলে নিরবচ্ছিন্ন বিশ্রাম আর পাচ্ছেন কোথায় ক্রিকেটাররা? উল্টো লম্বা ছুটিকে নাকি দরকার মনে করছেন না ক্রিকেটাররা। বাংলাদেশের বিশ্বকাপ শেষ হয়ে গেছে প্রায় আট দিন আগে। জাতীয় লিগ ২০ অক্টোবরের আগে শুরু হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা কম। ছুটি আরো দীর্ঘায়িত হচ্ছে জেনেই মাঠে নেমে পড়েছেন মুশফিক। কিন্তু কোচ বিশ্রামের পক্ষে।
তবে কি নিজের ছুটি জায়েজ করতেই শিষ্যদের 'বাধ্যতামূলক' ছুটি দিয়েছেন কোচ?

How much exactly did the players worked hard following the t20 world cup ? They only played two games for names sake and boom they were out of the tournament. Their poor showing in worldcup if meant anything that they need to work harder. Heck i even say this t20 wc was a good vacation for them, 5 star hotel, paradise and all. I feel so bad for shakib . He takes this whole team over his shoulder and you provide rest for the guys who did not do jack. He is playing constant cricket forever i can remember. :facepalm:

Playing against the reigning T20 world champs, BCB can lobby and arrange for an extra T20I match, if ICC permits, though I highly doubt it since almost every team has exhausted their limit of T20I per year before the world cup to prepare themselves.

Our best chance to be competitive in the series is to develop difficult wickets. Not one where there is a lot of turn, but where the ball doesnt come on to the bat, low bounce etc. Like the wickets we had against New Zealand. We stand a better chance in low scoring wickets, than high scoring ones.

Now if we try to be fair and sporting and try to make wickets with bounce, turn we ll be destroyed against a spirited West Indies full of confidence.

Rabz
October 8, 2012, 02:21 AM
^^ Low, super turning, difficult pitch is a must.
You prepare anything sporty or batting friendly, we might see world records at will.
But then again, our batsman will make sure Narine becomes a Warne in this series.

jeesh
October 8, 2012, 02:31 AM
Thats why we shouldnt make a turning track. Narine, Bishoo, Badree will destroy us.

Rather the ball shouldnt come on to the bat, there should be low bounce, and slight turn. Ideal for SLA's. Windies dont have the best footwork in the world. And they are relatively tall guys. So our SLA's can them plenty of trouble. There will be plenty of LBW's.

Making such wickets is very unsporting. But its our best chance of being competitive. But its not like West Indies will make turning tracks for us in West Indies. They will also develop bouncy wickets to suit their strengths and our weaknesses.

As usual, BD will have very poor preparation for this series. This is a stronger and different Windies team from a few years ago and after winning the 20/20 WC, they are all hyped up and found their confidence. I cannot blame your players for theirpoor performance because preparation for this series is very poor, unlike other countries, I blame management and coaches for poor motivation.

If things get sour with RP it may get sweeter for many BC-ites who wanted to see RM as HC even in 2007 after Dav Whatmore left. He is now more experienced and always willing to help Bangladesh Cricket. He was one of the coach present during recent Women Cricketer Hunt @ BCB HQ.

Expect nothing but a thrashing, won't be surprised if we lose every single match in all formats. There is not a single BD player who can hope to get in west indies top xi other than Shakib and maybe Tamim. The WI squad will possible look something like this -Gayle, Dwayne smith, Darren bravo, Samuels, Pollard, Dwayne bravo, Russell, Narine, Sammy, Roach, Rampaul with the likes of Fidel, Badree, Bishoo, Sarwan, Chanderpaul in the bench. Make no mistake about it, whatever the rankings say, if WI put their best xi on the park (like they did in wt20) they are FAR better than us. Even a WI team without Gayle beat us easily in test and odi's last year in BD.

Far better than us??? FAR better than many of the top teams !!! Their best 11 line up comprises of few of the bests of the world cricket specially in the shorter formats... Gayle, Smith, Samuels, Pollard,Bravo, Russel, Narine- all match winners... Don't know what's waiting for us :ohno:

Training sessions has not even started, thanks to our great head coach who needs more vacations than the rest of the team combined! 45 days of paid vacations are not enough, that's why he does not even sign his contracts in 4 months...already completed more than 30 days of vacation...and by the time he gets back from 2 week hiberbation he will complete all 45 days worth...

An amazing coach indeed! Or should I say vacation coach as he wants the players to take vacations as well by shutting down spin bowling sessions?

You are right, that 11 is arguable the best in t20 and if they play to their potential one of the best in odi's as well. In tests they are not a top side but far better than our legends Kaedge and Mofees.

Players train in coach's absence

Sports Reporter.

The Bangladesh national cricket team players took part in an unofficial practice session organised by captain Mushfiqur Rahim at the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) National Cricket Academy (NCA) ground yesterday.

With the BCB yet to receive a proper training schedule from head coach Richard Pybus and the National Cricket League almost certain to be delayed, the players decided to go through a few routine exercises.

"Some of the spinners were going through their training courses with Saqlain (Mushtaq), and Mushfiqur (Rahim) thought it would be a good idea to bring them together for some stretching," said NCA head coach Richard McInnes. The group, apart from players from the academy, included the likes of Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and vice-captain Mahmudullah Riyad.

Exactly 1 year ago, we beat WI in a T20 match in Bangladesh :) I know the current WI side is much stronger than the team played 1 year ago. But still, never lose hope :)

By that I think u mean last yr Gayle wasn't there,as well as NArine & a few more.
But we also beat Gayled WI in a T20 cup so nothing is impossible, but I'm not thinking much abt the T20, after Asia cup we need to maintain our ODI standard. :snob:

I don't get the Narine fear...he is an outstanding bowler in the shorter form of the game, but I don't think his test career will go along the same trajectory.

Of course our 'daamal chele-s' could make Ellys Perry look like the greatest crickter ever, but I don't think Narine should be stressing us out. After all we suck in general...so lets just do what we do, and not hung up on names.

I expect a thumping - not because the WI are on a roll and mental high, but because they are simply putm streets ahead of us.

Gayle and Co and can change a test match in a session, so no matter how well we think we're going, one 90 minute block of play and the game is gone...so I am very fearful.

Regardless, it's good to be playing a full series.

Interesting points on Narine. Will he be effective in longer versions? The T20 bowling rankings is dominated by guys like Narine, Mendis, Botha, Ajmal, Swann. They have a lot of variety, and mystery and seem to thrive in situations where batsmen dont have much time to hang around and need to hit. But what about the longer version where batsmen have the luxury of time to read the bowlers action, leave the ball, play defensively? Ajmal and Swann of course have been classy in tests, but Narine, Mendis, Botha havent had the same success-at least as yet.

But although Narine is unproven in the longer format he has the necessary weapons in his armory. Its a matter of learning how to use. He can turn the ball much more than any of our bowlers. So prepare a pitch with turn and bounce, he can really cause trouble. In such situations our only consolation is Narine hasnt played enough games in the longer format.

Sunny caused a bit of problem for them last time we played them. Interesting to see if selectors are willing to put Enamul in the mix.

We always fear about the star bowler of the opposition but end up giving wickets to one of the lesser bowlers. I wouldn't be surprised if suddenly Andre Russel or Marlon Samuels becomes our chief tormentor with the ball.

As far as the pitch is concerned the choice is simple! We have to make a pitch in a way that enables us to take 20 wickets. That is currently impossible with our pace bowling resources alone so fast seaming tracks won't do the job. So the only other option is make a test pitch that provides assistance to our spinners and hope we win the toss and bat.

No use. Have fieldsmen in the stands. Much better idea.

Good morning to everyone. We are here at Shere Bangla National Stadium and its a great day for some test cricket. Shafiul Islam to start with the new ball.

0.1 Islam to Chris Gayle, SIX, short and wide and Gayle whacks it over mid on for six. Great shot, poor delivery.
0.2 Islam to Chris Gayle, SIX, whats going on with Shafiul?!, bowls another short delivery after being whacked for a six and Chris Gayle hammers the ball into the stands
0.3 Islam to Chris Gayle, OUT, Oh hang on a minute, Shafiul overstepped! Islam bowls another short ball and Gayle gets caught on the boundary line. To his surprise its a no ball. Things arent looking good for Shafiul because by the looks of things he might go for 37 runs off this over.

You can only wonder what will happen when Shahadat comes into the attack.

It's very natural that the worst team in test cricket history will have the worst players in the format too... People are trying to figure out the better one amongst the worst lots... Lets find out a better 3rd pacer for the team, if he is better than Shahadat, is good for us.

If we haven't got any decent fast bowlers than we should try a medium paced swing bowler like Praveen kumar or Sohail tanvir... They could do some damage with new ball and bowl economically.. but I am probably day dreaming. If shahadat is among the best we got then we are in a very sorry state, we got only 1 test bowler in our team who is also our best batsman.

i don't think shahadat is the best we got, what happened is the selectors gave a lot of small opportunities to a lot of fast bowlers i.e. guys like dollar, sajidul, robin etc but they also gave a select few a goo number of opportunities. turns out the guys they gave opportunities to haven't come good yet i.e. shahadat, shafiul, rubel (he's come good in ODIs but not tests yet). the sajidul's and robin's and dollar's probably shouldhav been given more chances, it's not like shahadat, shafiul and rubel have cemented their places in the test team, they're numbers aren't good so it's not like they forced selection. the selectors just didn't give the others enough opportunities.

now the main issue is clearly development, there is talent there, there's a lot more that i haven't named that have strong talent and could be developed into world class fast bowlers if nurtured correctly. BD hasn't yet figured out how to develop it's pacers, that's why they struggle. a pace academy is desperately needed so the ones not in the national team get some good coaching because a lot of talent is going to waste right now.

I guess our players will be sitting out and watching WI play with A team or academy or reserve players... Or what's the plan? Will most of our national team get a chance to play with them in practice matches ??

Why no match at all in Ctg? I find enough time for them to travel for that...

ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশের বিপক্ষে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের পূর্ণাঙ্গ ক্রিকেট সিরিজ আগে থেকেই ঠিক হয়ে আছে। দুটি টেস্ট পাঁচটি ওয়ানডে এবং একটি টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলতে ৫ নভেম্বর ঢাকায় আসছে ক্রিস গেইলদের ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ।

প্রায় এক মাস ছয়দিনের সফরে খেলার সূচিও অনুমোদন হয়ে আছে। শেষপর্যন্ত পরিবর্তন না হলে ঢাকায় পৌঁছে ৬ ও ৭ অক্টোবর দুদিন অনুশীলনের পর ৮-১০ নভেম্বর সাভারের বিকেএসপিতে তিনদিনের একটি প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচ খেলবে ক্যারিবীয় শিবির।

টেস্ট ক্রিকেট দিয়ে শুরু হবে মূল সিরিজ। ১৩-১৭ নভেম্বর মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা জাতীয় ক্রিকেট স্টেডিয়ামে হতে পারে প্রথম টেস্ট ম্যাচটি।

শেখ আবু নাসের স্টেডিয়াম টেস্ট ভেন্যুর স্বীকৃতি পেলে ১৮ নভেম্বর বাংলাদেশ এবং ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ চলে যাবে খুলনায়। সেখানে দুই দিনের অনুশীলন শেষে ২১-২৫ নভেম্বর হবে দ্বিতীয় টেস্ট।

ওয়ানডে সিরিজের আগে বিসিবি একাদশের বিপক্ষে দুটি প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচও খেলার সুযোগ পাবে সফরকারী দল। ৩০ নভেম্বর ও ২ ডিসেম্বর শেখ আবু নাসের স্টেডিয়ামে দুটি ওয়ানডে খেলে ঢাকায় ফিরবে উভয় দল। ৫, ৭ ও ৮ ডিসেম্বর মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা স্টেডিয়ামে হবে বাকি তিনটি ওয়ানডে। ১০ ডিসেম্বর খেলবে একমাত্র টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ।

সূচি হলেও বিসিবি থেকে এখনও তা প্রকাশ করেনি। খেলার আগে উভয় বোর্ড থেকে আনুষ্ঠানিক সূচি প্রকাশ করবে।

They are still doing work on it. I think it got approved already, but will probably still need some work before it finished for good. My guess is it will either be ready for FC league 2013 or BPL 2014, or worse case senario T20 WC 2014.

so pybus is still not in BD and the series is just about 2 weeks away....how are players supposed to prepare properly for a series if the coach isn't around? the coach should play a major part in the preparation for a series. he can't just turn up on the day and say i want you to play like this, he's got to prepare them properly and the only way of doing that is by being with them.

Roach looks forward to Bangladesh tour
Afp, Bridgetown

West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach hopes the feel-good factor of being World Twenty20 champions will rub off on him on the tour of Bangladesh after he was overlooked for the recent triumph in Sri Lanka.

"The players are very confident following that success," Roach said.

"It's good to be around them right now. It's been very inspirational and they are talking stuff that is very useful to me. . . . . http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=255423

বাংলাদেশের বিপক্ষে সিরিজের জন্য প্রস্তুত হচ্ছেন ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের নারসিং দিয়োনারিন

স্পোর্টস ডেস্ক
বয়স ত্রিশ ছুঁইছুঁই। ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের হয়ে গত সাত বছরে ১৪টি টেস্টও খেলেছেন; কিন্তু ক্যারিবিয়ান দলের মিডল অর্ডার ব্যাটসম্যান নরসিংহ দিয়োনারানিকে সেভাবে এখনও বাংলাদেশি সমর্থকরা চিনে উঠতে পারেননি। দিয়োনারানি নিজেও অবশ্য সেভাবে বাংলাদেশকে চিনতে পারেননি। ২০০৫ সালে টেস্ট অভিষেক হলেও দলের অনিয়মিত এ সদস্য এর আগে কখনোই বাংলাদেশ সফর করেননি। উপমহাদেশের এ দেশটি ঘিরে তাই কল্পনাতেই দিয়োনারানি অনেক ছবি এঁকেছেন। 'আমি এর আগে কখনোই বাংলাদেশে যাইনি। তবে যারা সে দেশে গিয়ে খেলেছেন তাদের অনেকের সঙ্গেই কথা বলেছি, তাদের অভিজ্ঞতাগুলো শুনেছি। বেশিরভাগই আমাকে আশ্বস্ত করেছেন, এ বলে যে বাংলাদেশের কন্ডিশন অনেকটাই গায়ানার মতো। সেখানকার আবহাওয়া আমাদের এখানকার মতোই বেশ গরম আর বেশিরভাগ ক্রিকেট পিচই ফ্ল্যাট। তবে কিছু কিছু লো অ্যান্ড স্লো। সে যাই হোক, আমি বাংলাদেশ সফরের এ চ্যালেঞ্জ নিতে প্রস্তুত।' গায়ানার ক্রিকেটার বলেই বাংলাদেশ সফর ঘিরে কিছুটা যেন আত্মবিশ্বাসী নরসিংহ দিয়োনারানি।
ক্যারিবিয়ান ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটে ধারাবাহিক রান করে যাচ্ছেন এই বাঁহাতি ব্যাটসম্যান। স্থানীয় মিডিয়ার দাবি, শিবনারায়ণ চন্দরপলের মতোই ব্যাটিং স্টাইল তার এবং স্পিন বোলিংটা অনেকটাই কার্ল হুপারের মতো। ঘরের মাঠে দু'মাস আগেই নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে পারফর্ম করে নির্বাচকদের আস্থা বাড়িয়েছেন। বাংলাদেশ সফর ঘিরে এরই মধ্যে বার্বাডোজে ক্যাম্পও শুরু করেছে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ দল। গতকাল সে ক্যাম্প থেকেই এ সফরে নিজের প্রস্তুতির কথা জানিয়েছেন ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ দলের এ সদস্য। 'অনেক বছর ধরেই ঘরোয়া প্রথম শ্রেণীর টুর্নামেন্ট খেলছি। অনেকবারই আমার সামনে সুযোগ এসেছে। কখনও তা কাজে লাগাতে পেরেছি, কখনও পারিনি। শেষবার নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে সিরিজটা আমার আত্মবিশ্বাস বাড়িয়ে দিয়েছে। আশা করছি বাংলাদেশেও ব্যাট-বলে দারুণ কিছু করতে পারব।' ১৩ ডিসেম্বর মিরপুরে শুরু হচ্ছে বাংলাদেশ-ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ প্রথম টেস্ট ম্যাচ।

Akram hinted that there is a good chance to see a few new faces like left-handed batsman Mominul Haque in the Test squad.
“There are few names like Mominul, Sohag Gazi and Anamul Haque in our minds and left-arm spinner Enamul Haque is also in there but we are yet to decide about anything. Few changes from the last squad are not unlikely,” said Akram.
The chief selector also hoped that pace bowler Rubel Hossain, who had a successful operation on his right shoulder last May in South Africa, will be available forselection as the right-arm paceman looked fit during the first round match of the NationalCricket League. http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=255688

It's a matter of worry to select an opening partner of Tamim because no opener can do a big score. But last innings Junaid Siddiqui score a century. So he is only opener to be considered.

Mominul is not ready. Few 50s here and there and a century is not enough. Let him play all the NCL games and see how he performs.

Junaid should be given another chance at no.1/3. Naeem at 4

mominul doesn't deserve it because he just got a few fifties and a couple of centuries but junaid does? this recent century from junaid is only his 4th FC century, mominul has 3 plus mominul has been scoring his runs more recently. fair enough if you think junaid deserves it but if junaid deserves it then mominul definitely deserves it to.

১৩ নভেম্বর শুরু প্রথম টেস্ট। তার আগে আজ সকালেই ঢাকা পৌঁছে যাবে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ দল। অথচ সিরিজটার জন্য এখনো অনুশীলনই শুরু করেনি বাংলাদেশ দল! দলও ঘোষণা হয়নি।
দুই টেস্ট, পাঁচ ওয়ানডে আর এক টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচের ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সিরিজের জন্য বাংলাদেশের প্রস্তুতি একটু ভিন্নভাবেই হচ্ছে এবার। প্রায় এক বছর পর টেস্ট খেলতে নামার আগে ধরে নেওয়া হয়েছে খেলোয়াড়দের প্রস্তুতির বেশির ভাগই পুষিয়ে দেবে জাতীয় লিগের চার দিনের ম্যাচ। টেস্টে ফেরার আগে এটিকেই যথাযথ প্রস্তুতি মনে করছেন নির্বাচক হাবিবুল বাশার, ‘অনেক দিন হলো ছেলেরা দীর্ঘ পরিসরের ক্রিকেট খেলে না। সে জন্য টেস্টে ফেরার আগে খেলার মধ্যে থাকাটা গুরুত্বপূর্ণ।’
গত বছরের ডিসেম্বরে পাকিস্তানের বিপক্ষে ঢাকা টেস্টের পর আর টেস্ট খেলেনি বাংলাদেশ দল। তবে বন্ধ ছিল না ওয়ানডে আর টি-টোয়েন্টি। এই সময়ে মুশফিকুর রহিমের দল আন্তর্জাতিক ওয়ানডে খেলেছে ৪টি, আন্তর্জাতিক টি-টোয়েন্টি ৮টি। বেসরকারি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলেছে আরও ৯টি। টানা ১৭টি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলার পর দীর্ঘ পরিসরের ক্রিকেটের অভ্যাসে মরচে পড়াটাই স্বাভাবিক। মাঠে সকাল-বিকেল অনুশীলন কমিয়ে জাতীয় দলের খেলোয়াড়দের চার দিনের ম্যাচ খেলার সুযোগ করে দেওয়া সে মরচে তোলার জন্যই।
প্রথম দুই রাউন্ডের ম্যাচ মাঠে থেকে দেখে হাবিবুলের উপলব্ধি, ম্যাচ প্র্যাকটিসের সুযোগ কাজে লাগানোর চেষ্টা করেছেন জাতীয় দলের খেলোয়াড়েরা, ‘আমার মনে হয়, সবাই এই দুটি ম্যাচের সদ্ব্যবহারের চেষ্টা করেছে। সেঞ্চুরি হচ্ছে, জাতীয় দলের বোলাররা ৫ উইকেট পাচ্ছে। ম্যাচগুলো প্রতিদ্বন্দ্বিতা ূর্ণও হচ্ছে। সবাই সিরিয়াসলি নিয়েছে ম্যাচগুলোকে।’
ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সিরিজের আগে জাতীয় লিগে এই দুই রাউন্ডের ম্যাচই খেলার কথা ছিল সব ক্রিকেটারের। ৮ নভেম্বর থেকে বিকেএসপিতে শুরু ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ দলের তিন দিনের প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচ এবং দুই টেস্টের সিরিজ মিলিয়ে আজ ২০-২২ জনের প্রাথমিক দল দেওয়ার কথা। এই দলে যাঁরা থাকবেন তাঁরা আপাতত জাতীয় লিগে খেলবেন না। প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে যাঁরা খেলবেন, তাঁদের বাইরে প্রাথমিক দলের বাকিরা ৮ নভেম্বর থেকে অনুশীলন করবেন মিরপুরে। প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচের শেষ দিন ১০ নভেম্বর ঘোষণা হওয়ার কথা ১৪ সদস্যের টেস্ট দল। ওই দলে যাঁরা থাকবেন না, তাঁরা ফিরে যাবেন জাতীয় লিগে।
টেস্ট ক্রিকেটে বাংলাদেশের বড় দুর্বলতা ধরা পড়ে পেস বোলিংয়ে। মাশরাফি বিন মুর্তজার অনুপস্থিতিতে এবারও তাই হওয়ার শঙ্কা। তবে শাহাদাত হোসেন-শফিউল ইসলামদের সঙ্গে যদি ফিরতে পারেন রুবেল হোসেন, পেস আক্রমণের ধার কিছুটা হলেও বাড়তে পারে। তা খুলনার হয়ে জাতীয় লিগের প্রথম ম্যাচে আশাই জাগিয়েছেন রুবেল। দীর্ঘ ইনজুরি কাটিয়ে ফিরে দুই ইনিংসে বল হাতে নিয়েছেন ৩ উইকেট, ব্যাট হাতে প্রথম ইনিংসে করেছেন অপরাজিত ৩৩ রান। খেলছেন আজ শেষ হতে যাওয়া রংপুরের বিপক্ষে দ্বিতীয় ম্যাচেও। তবে জাতীয় লিগই যে গত বছরের ডিসেম্বরে পাকিস্তানের বিপক্ষে সিরিজে কাঁধে চোট পাওয়া রুবেলের জাতীয় দলে ঢোকার একমাত্র সিঁড়ি হচ্ছে, তা নয়। সামর্থ্য প্রমাণের ডাক পাচ্ছেন ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচের বিসিবি একাদশ দলে।
১৩ থেকে ১৭ নভেম্বর ঢাকায় প্রথম টেস্টের পর সিরিজটা চলে যাবে খুলনায়। ২১ নভেম্বর থেকে বাংলাদেশ-ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ দ্বিতীয় টেস্ট দিয়ে হবে খুলনার শেখ আবু নাসের স্টেডিয়ামের টেস্ট অভিষেক। একই মাঠে প্রথম দুই ওয়ানডে ৩০ নভেম্বর ও ২ ডিসেম্বর। এরপর ঢাকায় শেষ তিনটি ওয়ানডে ৫, ৭ ও ৮ ডিসেম্বর। ১০ ডিসেম্বর মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা স্টেডিয়ামে একমাত্র টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচটি দিয়ে শেষ হবে সিরিজ।

Yes very peculiar squad. National skipper captaining it? WTF. Also there seems to be every intention to pick the Haque trio for the XV...if so, why show them to the WI in a tour match? OK, just checked India played a couple of their XV vs England in a tour game...so feeling a little better that the BCB aren't morons. But still I'd have liked to sit out anyone picked in the XV.

That being said, ecstatic to see the Haque trio in serious contention and Taskin and Al Amin on the forseeable radar. Al Amin has the gayest run up and action you will see, but I saw him reach 139 clicks in the BPL so the lad has a bit of pace about him.

Disappointed to see no Sohag Gazi.

Who said Sohag Gazi isn't there? He is in the preliminary squad and probably sealed his place in the XI being the only specialist off-spinner, that's why selectors didn't want WI to get a look of him in the practice match.

Razi
November 5, 2012, 07:38 AM
BTW guys, Mushy himself requested the selectors to play in the practice match as he couldn't get much batting practice due to his head injury. And as we've been playing only T20s for so long and him being a batsman I see nothing wrong if he plays in the tour match to get used to the longer version of the game.

1. Tamim Iqbal

6. Anamul Bijoy
7. Mushfiqur Rahim (c/wk)
8. Elias Sunny
9. Shafiul Islam
10. Nazmul Hossain
11. Rubel Hossain

Should take 3 seamers into a TEST match. Need one swing bowler, one seam bowler and one pace bowler.

Anamul should bat 4th wicket down to give him time.

Batting looks light from number 8, so top 7 HAVE to get the runs.

Nasir is a quality batter, must bat up. Nafees is a fighter as is Junaid. I would want fighters at the top to battle it out.

No disrespect to anybody but SN has not done anything spectacular so far to earn a spot in the test squad. He is a fighter no doubt but he is getting whipped by other fighters around him at this moment. Need to have a solid performance in the tour match or else don't see him making into XI..

That's a fairly strong BCB XI. Would've prefered Shoumya there instead of Jahirul or Nazim tbh. But great opportunity for Anamul, Mominul and Shohag to really push for NT selection. Good to see them finally being rewarded.

edit: just noticed Shohag is not in the BCB XI but has been selected in the preliminary squad. Does that mean the selectors are shielding him from WI ahead of a possible Test debut?

I couldn't make sense of the selection at all. If they are indeed shielding him, then why expose Rahim/Riyad?

Simple! Taking 3 pacers of BD in any pitch means spinners e.g. Elias sunny and shak has to bowl 60 overs between them(story of bd cricket).

November 5, 2012, 10:21 AM
I couldn't make sense of the selection at all. If they are indeed shielding him, then why expose Rahim/Riyad?

Because Mushy and Riyad are batsmen. It's a custom for home teams to shield the main Bowlers/ or strength in the tour match. India didn't even include a single Spinner for the practice match against England. For batsmen, its different. I think its a great decision. By playing this tour match they wil have an idea about Sunil and WI Bowling attack. Besides they didn't have good NCL so far. They definitely can use this practice.

BanCricFan

Rahim and Riyad need match practice. Gazi, I hope, is just a random selection. For me, Enamul and Sunny are must in the playing XI. You dont play an offie just for the sake of it (although, Gazi seems to be a very decent one). Just like there is no point in playing 3 seamers for the sake of it. If the three pacers are truely Test material and potent -specially, in slow and low pitches -than that is a different discussion.

Both Sunny and Enamul (in top FC form) are TRIED and TESTED in Test. I cannot find a place for Gazi yet in my playing XI. For now, Riyad and Nasir could bowl a few overs of Off-breaks. They are actually not that bad.

Relieved to see Ash, Razzak, and Imrul not being selected. I don't care how experienced Ash is, he didn't deserve to be in the Test team with the way he's been playing. Imrul is not Test material and Razzak, regardless of the buckets of wickets he's taking in the NCL is also not Test material and he's proven that in the Test matches he's played.

Overall, I'm happy with the squad they picked. They picked a good balance of youth and experience. They rewarded the performers from the NCL. It should be interesting to see who ends up in the final 14 or 15. The practice match will be key for all these players trying to make the squad.

B C B 11 comprise of 6 top order batsman. So its clear better performer of the practice match will get the chance in test match.
Selectors certainly will not select S.Gazi for test. In that case best option was to play him in practice match. Strange practice match team no doubt. Enam should be eleminated from there.

I think that Gazi, Abul, Al-Amin, and Taskin are just there to fill up the numbers. Since they're young promising prospects, the selectors want to monitor them in the training camp and see how much further they have to go before they're ready. It seems also that Jahurul will most likely miss out now since Anamul hit a match winning century. The rest will battle out the spots in the practice match in order to get in to the squad.

মুশফিক: প্র্যাকটিস ম্যাচটা বোধহয় হবে না। এই দুইদিন যে পরিমাণ বৃষ্টি হয়েছে তাতে করে মাঠ খেলার উপযোগী নাও হতে পারে। খেলতে পারলে খুব ভালো হতো। প্র্যাকটিস ম্যাচটা খেলতে চেয়েছিলাম কারণ লিগে বড় রান করতে পারিনি। ব্যাট করার সুযোগও তেমন একটা হয়নি। দুটো বড় ইনিংস খেলতে পারলে ভালো একটা আত্মবিশ্বাস নিয়ে টেস্টে যেতে পারতাম। সে জন্যই ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচটা খেলতে চেয়ে ছিলাম। [/বাংলা]

Thanks.

It would be good for some of our players to have the practice match, but our players are supposed to know these pitches even by playing this NCL matches, but not having a practice might hurt WI more than us.

While WI is flying high (Over Confident) with the T20 WC success and not having a practice match here, we have quiet a few surprise players who even may not have a footage readily available, I see a good chance for us to win the first test....Everything crossed...:)

... It's a custom for home teams to shield the main Bowlers/ or strength in the tour match. India didn't even include a single Spinner for the practice match against England ...

Read Harsha Bhogle's opinion on this on CI. He points out that this is a defensive move. He cites the Aussie examples where they'd put the #4,#5 pacers in the country against the visitors, roll them over and then have them go to Gabba thinking, "if #4 and #5 did this to us, what's #1,#2 and #3 gonna do with us on a faster pitch". There's some merit to that. If Saqlain Sajib and Sunny could have run through the Windies batters than Enam & Shaq would have a mental edge in the Tests.

Those words are coming out of Harsha, so I won't go and defend myself. Just one point though..We are not as strong as Australia. They have quality batsmen, quality bowlers. Their #4,5 players can walk into any national team in the world. We on the other hand have to rely profoundly on our spinners. Actually our only chance to do anything in this series is if our spinners click. So didn't want to give WI the luxury to get accustomed to any sort of spin. But Harsha has a valid point..

‘Saqlain has helped me a lot. I am actually not a big turner of the ball and Saqlain has taught me how to do it. I have practiced it and received good results in the ongoing National Cricket League.
‘He also taught me the doosra and carom ball, but told me to practice it during off-season,’ Sohag said of the benefits he received from Saqlain.
Sohag has an impressive record of bowling for long spells for his regional side Barisal and he said that though it is difficult but it has helped him to concentrate more and bowl at one spot. http://www.newagebd.com/detail.php?date=2012-11-07&nid=29252

i think the batting strength is getting stronger, so even though spin is a big part of it the batting could be to. tamim has been in terrific form, anamul just hit good form, mominul has been in form (not only that but just made a huge partnership with tamim so they obviously bat well together which means a greater chance of more and bigger partnerships), shakib is a performer period, nasir has been really steady (hit some runs in NCL and is an international performer), mushy might not be in form but he has the skills and could comeback to form at anytime, naeem has been in terrific form, junaid just hit a big ton.

a lot of batsmen having been scoring lots of runs recently in the FC format and obviously test cricket is a step up but i think the batting could come good. if tamim, anamul and mominul are to be our top 3 then our top 3 players like to score big tons so we have a good chance of getting off to a good start and with a good start that motivates others, plus shakib can always score runs, not much rattles nasir so he's generally always got a chance of scoring a few runs to. i think with tamim, anamul, mominul, naeem (in tests), nasir, mushy, shuvagata, riyad the future of BD's batting is looking good. it's already starting to come good with tamim, shakib, nasir and mushy.

But look at how weak the spin attacks are of some of these sides. Australia only has Lyon. Would you really rate Doherty or Beer over the likes of Enamul or Saqlain? Now let's look at NZ, who do they have besides Vettori? Would you say that Nethula, Patel and Hira are better then Enamul or Saqlain. Even let's look at England, besides Swann, they have Panesar and Tredwell. Are these guys really that good either?

I believe that are our spinners could really make these sides because the other sides cupboard is quite bare after their premier spinners.

Vettori and Swann are top class spinners and good turner of the ball. Haven't seen Saqlain and Enamul play but my assumption is they are not that great. They are very much handy in Our region where the pitch plays a great role for a Spinner's success. Our spinners are clueless in green surface except Shakib..But Swann and Vettori are well tested in conditions where there aren't much help for the spinners.

Our spinners are good and getting very competitive but don't see them effective outside sub continent....

No you misunderstood me bhai. I'm not comparing Vettori and Swann to Enamul and Saqlain. That would be preposterous of me. Rather I am comparing the likes of Tredwell, Hira, Patel, Beer, Doherty and Panesar to Enamul and Saqlain.

I'm sure those 13 games are over w couple of seasons. The problem with Naeem is he's never had a full uninterrupted season for a while as he gets called up for tours during the NCL which isn't helpful. If memory serves me right he also averages 40+ for the national team since 2010. As I mentioned in a previous post, he's one of two people to score over 2,000 first class runs with an average above 40, Tamim is the other. So he's certainly got the stats going for him.

Tamim could get into the England and Australia teams right now. He's certainly better than Cowan, Compton and Root. Shakib could get into the South Africa and Australia teams.

Tamim's Test average at 38 is not the highest to be honest and is certainly way less than many established players such as Strauss (plus 40), Trott (plus 50), Cook (47) and Bell (46) who have all batted at the top for England recently. The England fixtures against the top 4 countries in full 5 Test match series, are arguably far more tricky than Bangladesh's.

Shakib's batting average at Test level is 34 batting and 31 bowling. Kallis (56 bat average and 32 bowling) and Watson (37 bat ave and 29 bowling) Ashwin (39 batting and 26 bowling) have far superior stats - again against mostly top 4 teams regularly.

Even spinners Swann (29 bowling average), Harbajhan (32 bowling average) - not even in India's team atm and Ajmal (27 bowling average), are stand alone spinners who are game changers.

I think Shakib is a talented cricketer, no doubt about that. Tamim had still some way to go to be classified as 'world class' though.

We will never know how Shakib would perform in another country's team in different conditions and expectations of winning. It's all speculation.

On the basis that most believe Shakib (and a lesser extent Tamim) to be truly world class, I would expect some consistently outstanding performances at home against West Indies in Test matches.

Tamim had one very bad series against Pakistan recently which resulted in his average suffering. Otherwise, he is a 40 avg. Test batsman no question. Also it'll be interesting to see how the likes of Cook and Bell fare in India. Bell so far averages just under 30 in Asia while his new captain averages around the 40 mark. Tamim, on the other hand, has managed to do much better in conditions alien to him - averaging 46.64 away from the subcontinent.

As for Shakib there is no doubt that he'd dislodge the likes of Tahir, Lyon, Narine, Vettori from their respective teams and probably even fill the vacant number 6 slot of the Indian team. In fact I can't think of a single team that wouldn't want a Shakib Al Hasan in their Test XI at the moment.

Good post Ian. England batting is strong and even Matt Prior has high average. Tamim and Shakib's average are below par for established players. In modern era, one have to average 40+ to be considered noteworthy and some even scores 50+ like Amla and Trott. But considering how England are gambling with Bairstow, Ravi Bopara, and even Samit Patel now, I think TI and Shak can take the spot for these players. But as you said, its really hard to predict how they "would perform in another country's team in different conditions and expectations of winning"

I think Compton may prove himself in time, as an aside.. England 'experimenting' I feel due to KP's absence... But Trott, Bell, KP, Cook, Bairstow, Prior plus a new 'opener' such as Compton is a Test top 7 batting line up with Broad batting at 8. I don't feel Patel or Bopara quite good enough for England Top 6 regularly at this time.

The time for TI and SAH to prove their mettle has long since gone, so I expect them to have a brilliant series at home against the West Indies ranked 7th.

For all the talk and hoping, if this is not a close series then it means BD hasn't moved forward in the last 2 years or so.

I'm a firm believer that number's don't lie, but I also believe that player's sometimes underperform stats wise. Tamim might average 38, but he's got 45 talent and skill right now. If he continues to mature he could be a 50 bat. I'm sure in that 38 average he's gotten more than his fair share of rough decisions (that PAK series last year where he was given out caught off the helmet, coincidentally when he was looking in sublime touch) probably brought his average down a couple of points (he likely woulda scored at least 75 that day).

Agreed 100%. Despite the WI being a good team, they are still #7 and also have less than 100 ranking points. Plus we're playing at home so that gives us even more of an advantage. If we cannot even give them a fight than it is very worrisome. No excuses, we need to fight tooth and nail in both the Test matches.

The fact that Tamim has the highest average in the test format for Bangladesh is huge itself. Keep in mind the age he started playing. He had very little experience and he was far from a test batsman. Remember? we could barely picture him playing test cricket back than. He was a hard hitter batsman to begin with. he was taken in the squad because selectors had no option. From that Tamim came a long way and in 2010 he was the best test opener in the world!. After that, we didnt play for a long time and thats why his justification of talent did not progress further. If he played the same number of tests as others like Cook, Strauss... I am sure his average would have been much higher than it is.

Having said that, the others have been dissapointing. Specially Mushy. by now, you would expect an average of 35+ by now.

He was a hard hitter batsman to begin with. he was taken in the squad because selectors had no option. From that Tamim came a long way and in 2010 he was the best test opener in the world!. After that, we didnt play for a long time and thats why his justification of talent did not progress further. If he played the same number of tests as others like Cook, Strauss... I am sure his average would have been much higher than it is.

Having said that, the others have been dissapointing. Specially Mushy. by now, you would expect an average of 35+ by now.

I echo your thoughts! :up:

So, no Enamul Jr. or Anamul Haque. Why Abul Hasan?? Is he better than Shafiul?
