Today is a new day, not just another day, rather a special one!
A day with a lots of sunshine, not just flicker of shine!!

A day, where our selectors came out as winners - not an easy one, especially, in a country like Bangladesh!!! How many times you have seen a decision was taken against the "establishments"? Yes!. Ashraful is an "institution" in Bangladesh. Some might not agree, but leaving him out from a 22 men squad is a real brave one where even our state ministers lobby for "him".

Secondly, the squad announced for the upcoming tests against West Indies seems based on performance, not just based on so called experience which is a rare scene in Bangladesh cricket! A combination of experienced and young talents have been selected who could take our cricket ahead led by the likes of Sakib, Tamim, Mushfiq ,Gazi, Mominul and Taskin etc.

Unlike the previous BCB president, we might have found a visionary boss in Mr. Nazmul Hassain - who seems quite interested to listen rather to talk. Time will say how he might perform, but looks promising so far.

And finnaly, I would like to congratulate the selectors for taking a bold decision and hope they would remain strong and follow a fair selection policy beyond any outside influences. Thank You.

All hail the SELECTORS!:applause:



Note: I am an Ashraful fan (not a fanatic one though!). Nothing could beat the joy of watching him when he is on song.
I hope and wish, he will take a break, think, go back to Richard and sorts out his mistakes and come back as a winner.

but... but its the same wine (the selectors) in a brand new bottle. The wine will taste the same though.

Yes Lotus Uncle did interfare with the selection, but did this selectors always took the right choices? Wasn't it the same selectors who made rediculus excuse to justify a player's inclusion/exclusion?

I hope the the new chaiman not only let the selectors select the team without interference, he also make them responsible for their selection.

I enjoyed reading the article/post Kalpurush Da until when you suggested Papor is a visionary. In fact I was going to say this piece was better than any other attempts Zee made. He is a BD politician. How can you forget that? The only adjective you use with their names is 'honorary' because that's mandatory.

I won't tip my hat off to the selectors just yet. Because, this was supposed to happen a long time back. To overlook Mr. Ashraful.

The toughest challenge, which will ultimately really test the selectors' mettle is, when our current crop have a bad outing in one/two tours. Will they revert back to Ashraful?

i think you got the names mixed up. Its Sir Ash ;)

Every rebirth looked like that...but that never happened. Has anything changed this time to suggest that our players have a change of attitude?? Talent wise, we never had a shortage since 2004/5....just because some new faces are in, I don't think that we have any reason to get over excited.... I know, after the series, we will hear very strong voices saying,"these guys are new, so give them time to settle" ...and there could be no arguments until we try them 2/3 years and be sure that they succeed/fail... And then again new players and new hope...the cycle continues...until there is a major change in our attitude...

We're praising the selectors so much but this should have been done long time ago. This is the job of the selectors and they must try to do it right all the time.
If there is any management pressure in selection of the team, in that case it's not the selectors fault.
It looks like the new president who's letting our selectors do their job.
Lets see how it turns out in the long haul.

Thanks for your comments.

Well, Mr. Nazmul Hassan is a visionary or not - we will know soon. I also generally do not like politicians, doesn't mean everyone is bad or have no vision.

Nazmul bhai is an educated person, thus, my expectation is higher. Also, he is known as a gentle man who steps up at times when needed. Time will tell.

I am optimistic though :)

Very rarely gets together in our way of doing things...:(

But we are good in holding our hopes high and dreaming of being world beaters...:) so, even knowing the above truth, I'm hoping to see our boys turning into world beaters someday..:)

lets see through this series with that hope...we will get some answers by the end of it.

^^^ Well, it is indeed new era for Bangladesh cricket - we have a very talented pool of players, so I am hopeful.


Regarding the selection of the 1st test squad, I am not that upset either. Gazi is here and Naeem is back. Regarding Abul, he will turn out to be a better one IMHO.

And Nafees, Zunaid, Nazim all should get another chance - if they fail, I want them replaced by Anamul, Mominul and Enam Jr also deserves a chance in the 2nd test.

We should keep our feet on the ground and not get carried away. We could easily loose the series 2-3. Don't forget WI bowled us out for 58 in Mirpur. I just hope our players don't do what we fans are doing now. Still long way to go.

Fazal
December 2, 2012, 08:28 PM
For the next 3 ODI, win or lose, its indeed a new era.

Your best player is out, and then you bring 4 new rookies in the team, and 3 of them contributed significantly with two new rookie getting MOM for fist two wins with the team 2-0 in the ODI series.... what else you expect? Even in my dream, I wouldn't dare to expect that much.

If this is not the indication of new era, then I don't know else you expect.

We could not perform consistently in batting due to dubious upper order players like SN,JN,IK, NZ, Ash., Johurul. Now selectors have taken bold decision to include promosing young talents and it already paid off. This is new era of our Cricket . We have lots of upcoming players in the pipeline . Our future is bright . We will rule cricket world one day .
