I was highly impressed by Sajidul (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/227454.html)'s bowing today. He did not bowl fast, but has the ability to hit the blockhole. Plus, he varies his length and line, and moves the ball off the seam.

He could very well be a flash in the pan, but there is nothing wrong in hoping, I guess.

Should be in consideration for the upcoming tour. He also did well in the FC competitions too I believe. Plus gives variation since he's a left armer

Glad to see Sajidul back after long time. Looked in good touch. We definitely need him in the SL tour considering how poor is our pace department right now.

let's see what he does in the next match.
tbh the two wickets of Sakib & Stevens were mainly due to batsmen poor shot selection.

He definitely has used to be 80 to 82 mph. His run up and final landing is different then what I could remember. He had rhythmic run up with small jump on his delivery stride but that seems to be gone now, its more like he walks in to his delivery stride. Image below is from 2008

Edit: That was his second IPL match but made his T-20 debut for Haryana in 2010

back when he first came into the national team he had pretty decent pace (consistently over 130kph) and swung it both ways, but he bowled a few too many bad balls. if he bowls around the same pace and still gets the swing but has worked on his accuracy a bit and has cut out bowling bad balls then he's worth a look. i'm sure he went on an A tour that rubel also went on (to ireland or england) and listening to commentary and reports people were saying he was very impressive (with rubel not being mentioned, so he must of had something back then at least).

No it was Rubel who was mentioned not Sajidul. I remember it because I followed that series and went to watch one of the A team match which had Tamim,Shakib,Mushfiq and Dhiman. Commentator was praising Mushfiq and Rubel. Tamim's batting was very erratic back then it was all dance down the wicket and try to hit it outside. Shakib never used to waste any balls as always back then it was more singles and doubles. Hats off to Shakib he has gone from just another good player to Mr invincible today.

Yes please. I rate them highly though I have not seen them.:o

Joking aside, yes they are good prospects but lets get them through the proper channel. I remember getting excited about Sajidul being a left handed medium pacer back in the day but look where he's been for the last few years. BC aunties always get to get excited about anybody these days.:)

i thought sajidul had been struggling with injuries these past few years, which would explain why he hasn't progressed very much.

Sajid was very impressive in that Kiwi tour regularly bowling into the 130ks and moving the ball both ways. He almost had a Rasel like control but much more nippier. I was quite excited about his prospects.

Nice to see him back again. But looks to have gained a lot of weight, though. Whats wrong with our cricketers! Can`t they keep themselves fit when not playing or nursing an injury? For how long this `spoon feeding` culture will continue?

the more competitive domestic cricket gets the more professional players get and with that will come greater fitness levels. do the domestic teams in BD do fitness tests? in australia players have to pass a fitness test regularly to play. at one point mark copsgrove (who still has weight issues) was told by the south australian cricket board he had to lose X amount of weight before they would consider selecting him again.

Interesting article here about Sajidul. It seems he learned quite a lot over the years. Maybe the same treatment needs to be done to Abul so that he can come back more ready.

hopefully it's not just all talk and he has learnt and matured. i like that he says his aim is to bowl with swing and accuracy, accuracy is so important without it a bowlers weapons are a lot less effective.

Dilscoop
April 5, 2013, 04:31 PM
I have a good feeling about this. Hope he goes well.

Why did they drop him after one series like that?

Tiger444
April 5, 2013, 04:35 PM
^very true. Without having control and accuracy, it's very hard to threaten international class batsmen. Bowlers such as Steyn, Morkel, Philander and Anderson not only have great pace but it's the control and accuracy that makes them so lethal. That's the problem with our pacers. They strive for too much pace while not thinking about control. If Sajidul can swing the ball both ways and can be accurate, he could be a lot like Junaid Khan is for Pakistan.

Tiger444

He's had back problems which is why he was out of action for a while.

Gowza
April 5, 2013, 04:47 PM
just trying to think whether he got injured and then missed out on selection that way or if rasel recovered and took his place (sajidul got selected when he replaced an injured rasel). robin came into the test team in the same series, he played the next couple of series which sajidul didn't. then after that rubel came along and he's been there ever since.

Gowza
April 5, 2013, 04:48 PM

yeah knew he had injury troubles over the past few years but didn't know if that was the reason for his dropping after the debut NZ series.

After the NZ series he was selected for the SA tour. I think he got injured during that series.

After that he was out of action for about 2 and half years (he said it himself to Prothom-Alo).

looked up the series archives on cricinfo but the squads were no longer there so didn't know if he had been selected or not. yeah he's had a rough run, we all saw the potential in him when he first came around, hopefully he has matured and learnt more and we get a solid pacer out of him. really want him in the playing XI.

I'm going to be really mad if SRK makes the squad ahead of him. i'm not expecting much from him, but at this point I'll take anyone over SRK. I feel bad for him. Both times other people's injury helped him get a call. Back in 2008 he was selected for the 2nd test against NZ after Mash got injured, and 5 years later he is getting selected again because Mash/Shafi is injured. I hope he has a good series. We can really use some fresh blood in our bowling department.

I for one am happy to see him back. I hope he gets the chance to bowl a few overs. He's no "Banglar Wasim" but at his best has the potential to be Syed Rasel at his best with a bit more pace and swing, and a lot more aggression. Whether he's willing to do the hard work on his own to be the best he can be is a fair question. The PA interview (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date/2013-04-06/news/342765) suggests he knows that he has to but wants more pacer camps under quality coaches. That's great as long as he's also working hard on his own. Our guys tend to be negligent and lazy without a coach breathing down their necks.

That's what I think as well. As long as he has the control part down, he can definitely be successful at this level. Also not to mention he can bat down the order. It's all about the attitude, being willing to learn and work hard. That's what brought Shahadat down despite having the talent.

During the Sri lankan series fans were aksing for him. Now in FB friendly pitch, he plays some games...may not be a lot... but some games atleast.

So what is your reaction after this series? Are you happy with his performance in this series?


How he ranks with the rest (Abul, Rubel, Shahadat, Robiul, Ziaul, Nazmul, Mashrafee) ? I am intentionally keeping yet untested FBs out of this list.

Being a left arm seamer he got some nice shape in towards RHB. I thought he has potential but definitely needs more work done.

Fazal
May 14, 2013, 04:03 PM
Unfortunately, he is pretty old to just show potential with no production. If he need to be in the team, he need to show result pretty soon. Its also true for Nazmul (i.e. age and speed is not in his side). But atleast Nazmul showed some result when he was with the national team, and therefore made a better case why he should currenly play for the national team.

Unfortunately I have NOT seen enough result from Sajudul to hope for better future. In BPL he has few good games and he was an instant fan favorite. But when he got the chance, I was kind of pretty disapointed as I also had high hopes for him. While Robiul and Ziaul shined, Sajidul was kind of non-factor like Rubel.

Shape without much pace is not that effective. If the condition is not favorable then he will be hit at will. He doesn't even seem that strong...so not sure how much technical tweak it will need for him to get faster.

everybody always had high hopes on Sajidul. al the times we were talking that we are missing the sajidul. if he was fit then ...... this that etc.

but in the end finally when he came back he really disappointed us. even the captain did not have any confidence to give him the ball.

well perhaps he could not control the nerves and felt the pressure of expectation. i hope he gets his rythm back and do well in future.
