[বাংলা]প্রিয় আবুল,
আমাদের অবস্থা হয় যখন প্রতিকুল

তোমার আছে দুর্দান্ত গতি
আবার লাইন লেংথ ও নির্ভুল[/বাংলা]

তোমাকে খেলতে দেখব বলে মনটা ব্যাকুল
খারাপ খেললে বলবোনা না সেটা তোমার ভুল
সিলেক্টর রা একমত হয়ে বলেছেন কবুল
(দেহের মত উনার মগজও স্থুল )
ফলাফল ভালো না হলে দিবে তারাই মাশুল

যদিও সব মিলিয়ে বোলিং তোমার অতি নির্ভুল
লাইন লেনথ যেন বুড়িগঙ্গা নদীর একুল ওকুল
তোমার variation এর কাছে হার মানে মালিঙ্গা, ওমর ঘুল
তাই আস্থা রাখি তোমার উপর জানি "ইউ অলয়েস রুল" [/বাংলা]

^^ZERO. Nantu Ghotok has better chance.

"0" is a big odd in favour of Abul. Meaning no bookmaker will take any bet fearing Abul will get the wicket of Chris Gayle.

Realistically:

Abul to take the wicket of Chris Gayle will be around 30 to 1 (considering Abul plays) (My estimation..but I think its normally lower than that ). Unfortunately none of the bookmaker is offering any odds other than match which is

Bangladesh to win 7/1

Draw at 7/2

Windies at 4/11

His FC stat is very ordinary. Nobody said Abul doesn't have any promise. But clearly he is not ready yet. 8 wickets in 6 FC matches cannot be the justification to take someone in test team. His avg and SR are also very high.

We need to remember one thing. National team is not a place for babysitting.

So if Abul doesn't make it to the playing XI then the team might be like this

1. Tamim
2. Nazim/Junaed
3. SN/Junaed
4. Naeem
5. Shakib
6. Riyad
7. Mushy
8. Nasir
9. Sunny
10. Gazi
11. SRK/Rubel

Which doesn't look like a bad team tbh.. That gives you the depth in the batting line up and a moderate to good spin attack .. Really no point in taking 2 pacers just for the sake of it specially when they are the crappiest ever !!

The national team has been a babysitting centre for many years. This trend is not changing anytime soon bro..

. We have seen many "talents" have been hastily injected there over the years and after a bad series or two many were discarded. I don't want Abul to have the same fate..He is not ready, no doubt. But I want people to encourage him. It's not his fault that he is where he is now.

I personally have soft corner for guys who bowl fast. So maybe that's why I am not seeing what you are seeing. But these harsh criticism from fans need to stop. Let him gain some national team experience thanx to Akram and then condemn him if he fails.

I dont think he is playing. He'll be busy carrying drinks. So no need to worry:)

Great post Roman bhai. I'm happy that you stood up for Abul. Coaches Jurgenson and Law really praised them highly so there's obviously something they're seeing which we aren't yet. He's a young guy and it's no point of really trashing him just because he got smashed in some T20's which happens to many good bowlers.

Plus it's not like we are leaving Brett Lee's and Curtly Ambrose's at home. We just have to face the facts here, our pace situation is in a sorry situation which is why we're seeing a 17 year old Taskin already being very close to being in the national team. We desperately need to open a pace academy so we can develop better pacers and we won't have to throw such young pacers in to the fire.

Gowza
November 9, 2012, 10:18 AM
the thing is there are a number of pacers who can bowl 140kph+ now, and there are even more that bowl 130kph+, i think pace isn't as important as control, line and length, variations and the ability to think and bowl to a plan to try and get the batsmen out once a bowler can bowl 130+. obviously pace can be a weapon but if that bowler has no control, no variations, no line and length and can't think a batsman out and bowl to a plan the what is the point? it's about taking wickets, your fastest bowler isn't always your best wicket-taker.....

the positive is that he hasn't just been discarded like many others but if he's there purely for pace then there are others who can bowl as fast. rubel for one, shahadat can bowl 140+, shafiul on occassion can get his pace up there, sajidul can get up there, kamrul rabbi is meant to be able to, taskin.

the main issue with his current selection is that he's one 3 very similar pacers in the same squad and they are the only pacers in that squad. he is being singled out because rubel has shown potential and has ODI success and in periods shahadat has had success and abul is the new guy who is yet to have any real success.

Exactly ......:up: so all these criticism and crying over Nazmul is just silly and waste of time.

The way, we cover up Anamul's 20 failures, and want him back in the team for no good reason, IMO. Why can't we have the same sympathy for this lad?? Yes, I'm yet to forget his nonsense in the T20 WC, but that doesn't mean that he isn't capable of doing better in the test matches.... Lets not have double standards for different players.

WarWolf
November 9, 2012, 11:17 AM
It's easy to forget a player who is unable to perform in the international arena. How many young pacers did we try so far? Where are they now? What happened to them? I don't want the name of Abul to be added to that list.

If Abul becomes the reason for losing matches, I am sure you guys will change your stand. There's no point in throwing someone out there in the middle who is not ready at all.

Any way, I am stopping talking about Abul. Let's see what he does. Wishing him all the best.

On topic, after all this discussion I am really curious to see Abul bowl in one of the test now. He has nothing to lose. If he fails, we won't be surprised because we convinced ourselves that he sucks. But if he performs, it will turn many heads and he will be an instant hero.

I know Abul has potential. I remember in the BPL when he dismantled Duronto's batting lineup. He got Mushy out as well. But that day he was bowling good line and length with pace. But for some reason he cant bowl proper line and length deliveries. Its pretty dissapointing to see that. I think he shouldnt be in the national team and at the same time rectifying this problem. He needs to work on it in the domestics and then come into the national team after fixing those problems.

Should we put a magnet in the ball and another in the good length area of the pitch, to prevent Abul from bowling 5 short balls per over? Hopefully Jurgensen will figure out something. BTW Jurgensen himself has overstayed his welcome.

Based on what? His 43.37 average from 6 FC games? I hate to say this, but here goes this kid's international career down the drain. We will hear about him for a while, maybe will look good for a little while but eventually before we realize it, he will make that long list of players who we don't talk much about. This is exactly what we did with the likes of Sajidul, Dollar and many more. Here's to hoping I'm 100% wrong.

Test cricket is all about getting 20 wickets guys, not really the "economy". It doesn't matter how many runs he concedes as long as he picks up wickets at regular intervals. We have Nazza!, Big Z and Nayeem, so it really doesn't matter what the Windies put on the board.

"Walter Read (117 in 1884), Pat Symcox (108 in 1998) and Reggie Duff (104 in 1902) are only Test players to score a 100 batting at number 10. Australia's Reggie Duff is the only player to score a Test century, batting at number 10, on debut."

I know he played some classy drives and punches and blusted couple of 6s. But what impressed me the most is his forward D. I haven't seen a BD player play that defensive shot so well.

Abul Hasan is a World Wide TT on twitter. That's what's up. I've never seen anyone from or related to BD make it on that. None of that other stuff matters, this is what counts in this century.

True. And for his and our sake, he needs to perform with the ball in this test. If he can do that, we will avoid a second Ashraful kelengkari.

MyRoom
November 21, 2012, 07:46 AM
He deserves it played wonderful proper Cricket shots but the scary thing will be if he notches up the highest score at number 10 position plus overall Bangladesh highest score and looking at the way he has gone thus far, its certainly possible. He needs a good night rest to charge his batteries up.

This is simply amazing from 193/8 to 365/8 on day one !!

Hopefully people now give more time to our youngsters to settle in to international cricket. Not only for Abul, but the youngsters that will come in. It's not easy to jump straight in to international cricket. And he only played in T20I's which is a batsman's game. Give these guys a run and see if we can see sustained improvement from them in a period of time. If they don't improve over a course of time, then and only then we should discard them.

Abul Hasan's unbeaten 100 is the second Test century by a No.10 batsman (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?batting_positionmax1=10;batting_positio nmin1=10;batting_positionval1=batting_position;cla ss=1;debut_or_last=1;filter=advanced;orderby=batte d_score;qualmin1=50;qualval1=batted_score;template =results;type=batting;view=innings) on debut. The previous such effort was in 1902, by Australia's Reggie Duff, who was actually a frontline batsman who was held back due to a sticky wicket at the MCG.
Abul's knock makes him the fourth No.10 batsman (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?batting_positionmax1=10;batting_positio nmin1=10;batting_positionval1=batting_position;cla ss=1;filter=advanced;orderby=batted_score;qualmin1 =50;qualval1=batted_score;template=results;type=ba tting;view=innings) to score a century - the last such performance came from South Africa's Pat Symcox.
Bangladesh's previous-highest (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?batting_positionmax1=10;batting_positio nmin1=10;batting_positionval1=batting_position;cla ss=1;filter=advanced;orderby=batted_score;qualmin1 =50;qualval1=batted_score;team=25;template=results ;type=batting;view=innings) at this position was Tapash Baisya's 66 against New Zealand in 2004.
Abul is also the third player from Bangladesh (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=1;debut_or_last=1;filter=advanced ;orderby=batted_score;qualmin1=50;qualval1=batted_ score;team=25;template=results;type=batting;view=i nnings) to score a Test hundred on debut, after Aminul Islam and Mohammad Ashraful.
The unbeaten 172-run stand between Abul and Mahmudullah is the fourth-highest (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=1;filter=advanced;orderby=fow_sco re;partnership_wicketmax1=9;partnership_wicketmin1 =9;partnership_wicketval1=partnership_wicket;qualm in2=75;qualval2=fow_score;template=results;type=fo w;view=innings) for the ninth wicket in all Tests, and 23 away from equalling the record. Bangladesh's previous-highest (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=1;filter=advanced;orderby=fow_sco re;partnership_wicketmax1=9;partnership_wicketmin1 =9;partnership_wicketval1=partnership_wicket;team= 25;template=results;type=fow;view=innings) for the ninth wicket was 77.
Since the fall of their fifth wicket at 98, Bangladesh have added 267 runs, which is their highest for the last five wickets (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=1;filter=advanced;groupby=innings ;orderby=fow_runs;partnership_wicketmin1=6;partner ship_wicketval1=partnership_wicket;team=25;templat e=results;type=fow) in an innings.

Cricinfo profile of Abul.
Profile

Abul Hasan shot to fame when he became the first No.10 to score a century on Test debut, in 110 years. He achieved the feat against West Indies in Khulna in November 2012, even before he took the new ball - his primary role in the Bangladesh team. Born in Kulaura, a small town in Sylhet, Abul came through the age-group system where he first played as a batsman in the Under-15 team. After a good spell of bowling, the former Bangladesh captain Minhazul Abedin convinced him to take up fast bowling seriously. A few years later, he took 34 wickets in 11 Dhaka Premier League one-day matches and regularly played in the Academy and Bangladesh A teams. He had to bide his team but earned his first call-up when he was included in the Bangladesh squad for the tour to Ireland in mid-2012 before being picked in the World Twenty20 squad. He became the 65th Test cricketer to play for Bangladesh.

Inshaallah, if managed well, Abul will become a very decent allrounder for us. Of course, he has to do his bits, first. We have to be patient to see Abul the fast bowler excel as he is only 20 and hasnt played a lot of FC. But, what I have seen of him today I see a genuine prospect in him. He is our 3rd seamer for the ODIs who could bat down the order. Abul should be advised to take his batting seriously and not bat like a tailender.

He was bowling with a fractured hand. Even though that's his non bowling hand, it must have affected his bowling. He definitely seems to be a kid with heart which is important. His run and action is pretty smooth and he can work up a decent amount of pace. He'll need to work hard on his control and discipline.

Abul Hasan made a much-applauded 113 for
Bangladesh in the first innings, a debut century at
No. 10 for the first time in 110 years. But his
primary role in the team is that of a pace bowler,
and he hasn't started his career in this
department as brightly. Abul, ironically, had
conceded 113 runs at the end of the third day's
play, becoming the only cricketer to have scored
and conceded more than 100 runs on Test debut.

People are getting carried away he will never be a decent all-rounder, his innings was a fluke and a number 10 bowler scoring a century proves just how terrible and unsuitable this Cricket pitch is. Had the top order played properly, we still would've been on 931-6 or something the pitch is that bad for bowling for both pacers or spinners. We have problems playing the highest form of the game and that needs to be sorted.

Abul Hasan to Samuels, FOUR, edged and four! the line was no different from the previous deliveries and the shot was similar too, Samuels has been playing at all these deliveries knowing that the ball will not carry. That is exactly what happens, the outside edge goes between the slip and the keeper

85.3
Abul Hasan to Samuels, FOUR, oh wow, this time he is made to come forward and he edges it to the first slip, and it carries! It is dropped by the first slip, and it goes through to the fence.

abul has potential. in a few years if we go with 3 pacers i can see a pace attack of rubel, abul and alauddin as first change. BD pacers always seem to be unlucky, how many more wicket could mash of had if it weren't for poor fielding/dropped catches, and it still happens, can't expect the bowlers to get all of their wickets through lbw's and bowled, the fielders need to hold onto the chances.

You are right. Our fielding and wicket keeping makes fast bowling very difficult. Shahdat is the biggest sufferer of that. Look at WI, the number of ball, Tino best bowled outside leg and saved by Ramdin was amazing, that gives more confidence to the bowlers to experiment and bowl freely to give you result. If he has to get bogged down worrying about extras....then the quality automatically reduces.... That's a big disadvantage for our pacers.... Everyone isn't McGrath ...

I maybe the only one over here but I really don't care about his century and don't understand all this hype. All it did was Save us from losing face. His main job is to become a good bowler and we don't really need another bits and pieces allrounder like Zia. I mean do we really expect him to bat in the top order? Expect him to score consistent runs? Really? Did gillespie scoring a century against us, McGrath scoring a fifty, muralist scoring a fifty, Saqlain scoring a test hundred make them batsmen? Why is everyone all over the moon about this century? It's a fluke that doesn't warrant him to have his face pasted on the wall of this website.

His job is to bowl well and focus on becoming a good fast bowler. We have enough batsmen already unless Abul hopes to bat at number 3 or 4. Or become an excellent captain of our team

Exactly !! We shouldn't expect him to save our face over and over again. That's not his job in the team anyway. He made a 100, good. This proves he can bat as well but he have to prove himself as a bowler to secure a place in the team. We already have 8 batsmen and wanting him to focus on batting just won't work. Mash is a handy batsmen lower down the order as well but he knows it very well that his main duty is to bowl. We really don't need any more ARs as we have plenty.

^^^ Bowled good lines initially and extracted some good bounce from the pitch in his middle overs.

Mushy made him bowl 1 powerplay over at the end, where the WI tail (rampaul/narine) smacked him for 15 runs or so. Any of our other pacers Rubel/Mash would have got the same treatment so really not much to say against his bowling.

I can tell that century will get him picked over Rubel/Nazmul ... which isnt necessarily a bad thing, he should bat ahead of Gazi, Razzak...

Bowled really well in 1st ODI... But a sad victim of Captaincy, Umpire and Fielding... Our captain/s has no idea how to handle a bowler with real pace, what should be the field setting etc and our fielders aren't used to taking those catches due to extra pace. Even Shahadat is also a victim of these things to some extent. Infact, bowlers with extra pace are all victims.

We will all forget those three missed chances of Abul and extra runs conceded due to poor fielding.... But we will analyze the stats and see him to be the most un successful bowler of the day. We will forget how much trouble he created for the batsmen by bowling accurately and with pace and by creating those chances. That has definitely helped the spinners to have success later on... But yet after one or two losses, we will ask for a all spin team forgetting his contributions to the team....

Such thankless is the job of a pacer in BD team....well played Abul.

Dale Steyn had to do some fine tuning himself to get the control right. once he got that, He is a beast. I see hope but we need to be patient with him.

Lots of matches? Could you please list which matches? He hasn't played many matches for the national team.

Sorry I dont play with statistical numbers anymore. Having BD played most number of t20s, I followed all BD matches last year where he somehow managed to glued in the squad even failures after failures. He just couldnt deliver anything near satisfactory as a young starter, leave nat side worthyness. Thats my one line equation for him. Moment I heard he got into Duronto, I know this team is doomed with him.

He won them a match so far and lost them one. Also we all really like to attack Abul but lets realize one thing, all our pacers are pretty poor. Rubel and Shafiul were improving until they got injured and we know how Shahadat is. I know Abul is not very good now but are we really seeing any young pacers coming out? I agree with this though that he needs more A team experience and bring him back when he's more ready

January 21, 2013, 11:12 AM
Rubel and Shafiul have improved as fast bowlers since the world cup but I would like them to be consistent and make the batsman play and hit the seam more. Mashrafe and Nazmul are our best 2 fast bowlers at the moment and its important these 4 stay together and take care of their fitness and all that because other than them, the rest are not good.

BCB need to sort out their fast bowling now otherwise we won't be winning test matches.

January 21, 2013, 11:45 AM
Currently Mashrafee and Nazmul are our stopgap solution, they cannot be our part of long term or even mid term solution.

We (BCB) need to find 3/4 more young FBs to make a core of 5/6 FBs who should be rotated in the team of 11 to keep them injury free and hungry.

... and there comes players like Abul... he may not be ready yet, be over time he can be one of those core FBs.... if not, then we need to find someone else.... but its too early to say one way or another.

Giving him chance in TEST was a surprise indeed, but giving him chance in ODI was not. Actually he bowled pretty well in one of the two ODIs that he played against WI.

But I agree, he should be given chance to play for Test A, whenever possible. But the problem is our Team A is in hibernation for a while. So the question is how this young players will get the experience that they need?

Good post. It's actually a very big problem we have and don't see any real planning. We're just seeing promising spinners but no pacers coming out. We desperately need a pace academy ASAP or have our young, promising pacers shipped out to Ian's academy. Or else we'll continue to have to live through the growing pains of the likes of Abul, Rubel, Shafiul and Taskin.

Without a doubt it is too early. The question is whether he will get the training he needs and whether he is smart who can outfox the batsmen in the field. We need one good pacer to come up. That should start a trend.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/373439.html

FC strike rate of 130.6, Twenty20 economy rate of 10.47 after 20 matches

Going by his bowling stats and no of matches played, how has he proven himself to be chosen for the Bangladesh Cricket Team? His stats sums up the state of our cricket, he would not even make the A teams of all the other test teams with that record. If with such small FC experience he can be picked then why cant Taskin be picked as well or do i see some biased selection here.

Fazal
February 18, 2013, 02:24 PM
He had a bad TEST bowling and had promising ODI bowling against WI. Also he had an execelent batting performance in TEST (which was PLUS and not an expected role).

Now that he is already in the national team, there is not enough reason to drop him... time wise and performance wise. By the time someone like Taskin comes, may be he will have enough time to justify his case one way or another.

We need to stop this business of bringing someone early and then drop him too early. And the fans need to realize that. It is one thing to raise your concern why Abul was selected in the first place; but it is another thing that now he is in the team, we ask for his head after one series.

Also not to mention he was owning with a fractured thumb on his left hand he whole. I get the fact that he's not the best of players but I don't get why people vilify him the way they do. I dont see too many Steyns and Morkels sitting on the bench right? The anger should be directed at the BCB for not having any plans for our pacers, not at Abul. If we want better pacers, then we need a lot more vision at the top and dedication to solve this pacer problem. It won't happen over time but it's better to get it started now. So for the time being, we're going to have to bear with these young pacers. I see many people backing Taskin, he'll also need a long time as well. Being a good pacer at the international level involves a lot of hard work and doesn't take one day.

February 18, 2013, 11:18 PM
Story of our cricketing history isnt it? We get a bright prospect, rush him in, realities of international cricket strike, and we dump him for a new prospect. We ll waste Taskin if he push him into international cricket right away. He could a massive talent for us. Let him play more first class cricket, A Team tours, another BPL. Let him work with under RM in the high performance unit. Let him bulk up a bit so that he doesnt get injured.

Regarding Abul, now that we have picked him, dumping him will do a lot of harm to his confidence. We should keep him in all squads.

Looks like some people does rate Abul high .

What did he do reach that high? Yes he score 100 in test, but his main job was to bowl and that he fail.

He never should of been in national team, just because he can bowl fast a bit, that is just wrong to pick him, I would say please keep ordering pizza while selecting.

jeesh
February 19, 2013, 06:31 AM
Not really. Its just that we dont have much alternative.

Rubel and Shaful are options 1 and 2 for Tests. Nazmul is unlikely to be considered. So its Abul or Shahadat or Robiul for option 3. Who would you pick for option 3?

Seemed like you didn't read the posts of the people that rated him "highly" and instead getting annoyed at the fact that people are backing him. We're not saying he's a great pacer, he's coming in due to the lack of options. People seem to have a problem accepting this fact. Domestic bullies such as Tapash and Sharif bowled in the BPL and they looked much worse than Abul did. Sajedul looks decent but definitely not the promising pacer he once was. You think Abul would've been chosen if we had better pacers waiting in the wings?

Accept the fact that our pace situation is in a sad shape and we have no other way to solve it in the short term other than back young pacers such as Shafiul, Rubel, Abul, and Taskin.

Tiger444 - If you judge by BPL performance alone (which means nothing much) Abul was still one of the worst pacers - and he got much more chances too. He's neither a domestic bully or a big stage performer. The only thing going for him at the moment is his age. Of course happy to be proven wrong, but I have zero hopes of him making it big and wouldn't mention his name along with Taskin, Shafi or Rubel.

There is every chance he could become a zero exactly like Dolar Mahmud but I just think it's far too early still to say that. Don't forget Shafiul and Rubel also started off slowly, especially Shafiul and people back in the day wanted to drop him immediately. Now look what happened? Not saying he's great but he's played a massive part in many of our wins against the G8 teams in ODI's. Abul's just basically played 1 series. T20's are hard to judge, especially for young pacers since it's a batsman's game. Give him a few more series and see what he does.

By the way, does anybody know what happened to Kamrul Islam Rabbi? He was a young promising pacer as well. I feel he should be considered as well.

I hope his century was not a one hit wonder. We ve been looking for a pace bowling all rounder for a while.

dont worry if abul somehow by gods will gets a wicket in the 1st test vs SL we could have a player with both Batting and Bowling avg of 120+..man if thats not an allrounder i dont know what is!..move away shak fu!

I hope Abul doesn't come back to haunt us with a fifer or something lol. I agree he has been poor but i think we can't forget that he did bowl well in a couple of ODIs against WI (or was it the one match where he opened with Mashrafe?)

he has the tools, unfortunately many BD pacers who start off with a good base game and the tools to succeed never seem to develop into an international quality bowler.

There is every chance he could become a zero exactly like Dolar Mahmud but I just think it's far too early still to say that. Don't forget Shafiul and Rubel also started off slowly, especially Shafiul and people back in the day wanted to drop him immediately. Now look what happened? Not saying he's great but he's played a massive part in many of our wins against the G8 teams in ODI's. Abul's just basically played 1 series. T20's are hard to judge, especially for young pacers since it's a batsman's game. Give him a few more series and see what he does.

By the way, does anybody know what happened to Kamrul Islam Rabbi? He was a young promising pacer as well. I feel he should be considered as well.

Nah, if you look back even when Shafi was going for 9+ RPO in Asia cup, I backed him. That's because I saw him bowl well despite his poor start. Same with Rubel - quickest bowler of the lot and he got good reverse of the old ball. I have seen nothing much of that sort in Abul - neither does he have raw pace, nor he is able to get his length right consistently or move the ball.

Rabbi got a 5fer vs Chittagong and played for South zone. Nothing phenomenal, not poor that's all. I was looking forward to see Al Amin Hossain play too. Failed in BPL, but could do well in FC.

^Fair enough I guess we'll just wait and see how Abul turns out. Coach Shane likes him so there's obviously something he likes that we're not seeing. I wasn't too impressed with Al-Amin to be honest. I did like Kamrul Islam Rabbi. He and Alauddin should also get looks as well

I see potential in Abul, I have also seen him reverse swing. It is too early to get rid of him. Its not only Jurgensen, Stuart Law also saw good potential in Raju. I have not seen enough of Rabbi only saw footage in YouTube.

One thing I don't understand is his pace or the lack of it in this year's BPL, check out this video of him in BPL 1, where he also got smacked around but he had more than decent pace. The first ball in the video shows him bowling at 139.6 km/h !!!! what happened??? now he barely bowls at 130 km/h...

Aint his performance was very much on as expected today?
imo Abul is turning a name of a failure a cricketer to bring down the team.

Don't blame him. I blame who picks him.


But I do blame him for not know g what is “basic” for a fast bowler

His only 20, talk about basic's.. no A level tours and he gets drafted in. Then again we can't blame Abul Hasan, even if Shaiful, Rubel et all played they would average and do the same. look at past history of our pacers in overseas condition esp Sri Lanka. I think Mushy should have bowled more spin ( More use of Elias, Mahmudullah)

not only our pacer stock is empty but we also don't have any role model who can inspire the young ones like Abul or RObiul,
what will Abul learn when he looks at senior players like Shahadat?

Taskin on the other hand is the only bowler who looks motivated, hungry for wickets, if I had an Alauddiner cherag my wish would be to bring Taskin for the 2nd Test & make sure Abul & Shahadat don't play in near future, specially for Shahadat it better be permanent, he has nothing left in him to give.

The only thing I liked about Abul is his Pace! Its the first time I have seen any Bangladeshi bowler hit 140 Kph consistenly in first few overs After Rubel. He needs to be developed in A team tours and domestic.

Jersensen working with him for more than a year now and still couldn't improve him a bit. Not only him he couldn't improve any pacers. He didn't even work with any new ones.

We need a new pace bowling coach. These young pacers need a coach like Ian Pont.

Abul has pace. He has potential.

no coach can do nada.
ageo bolchi, ghora diya haal chash hoyna.
he keeps bowling on leg..what a ...
Having said that Jogashon is a good for nothing coach.
But Mashrafee under Ian Pont during BPL2 was awful, on the other hand ALfonso was amazing.
There is something called natural skills & I'm afraid none of our pacers have that, except probably TajKing.

Simon bhai he is still young and inexperienced.

With a coach like Ian Pont he will become a good bowler.

A good bowling coach can change any bowlers.

ya probably a good bowler in our standards, but not good enough in international standard.
Offcourse it's only my personal opinion/guess.
What we need is to encourage young stars to take pace bowling and keep finding new talents.
Keep Abul away for atleast one more year and meanwhile I would like to see more of Rubel,TajKing,Nazmul & even Shafiul

Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, Abul will be here for a while. It's not like we have Steyns and Morkels just sitting around. So we have to live through his growing pains. He along with Shahadat wasted the new ball. He did better but still sprayed it around too much

We might not have Steyn or Morkel but we still have likes of Nazmul, Shafiul and Taskin etc. All of them cant do any worse than Abul. There are also some pacers like Abu Jayed or Sajidul who seems promising to me. And Abul seems like a slow learner like Sir Ash, he has played a few series now but still erratic and indsiciplined as he first started. No improvement
