Every cricket fans should agree that cricket is a game of literate people, which involved temperment and passion. We can find those qualities in other country's players. For the improvement of Bangladesh cricket team the selectors and coach should find such good educational background players so that they can really understand what the coach says and what to do in the field. I really want to know, the educational status and from which educational institute the present players come from? Obiously atleast the literate cricket fans can understand where is the difficulties through this statistics of Bangladesh cricket team.

Here is an example!

Both Tendulker & Wasim Akram ( both are school/college dropouts) have middle-class background.

Both of them rose like a phoenix to straddle a land devoid of hope. On their own ability, talent, grit and determination, with no family connections to power and privilege or money, no godfather to pave the way to attention or selection, nobody to ease the way. They stand for that special and rare achievement that gives pride to a country battered by its internal demons. They stand as an example of a homegrown product of uncompromising excellence, tested by fire in the most trying and hostile environments, to show the world that despite their obvious shortcomings(ie., so-called educational background), they are the real world champions.

i don't mind spell (look my signature). but still here is some comment.

dav said on the occation to give the best player award, regarding rafique, "he does not speak english, if i say something he just nods his head and says yes or no". now, who won the award? RAFIQUE. his educational level did not prevent him from being the best sportsman of the country. all along, i've been listenning that cricket is the game of gentlemen. never heard of game of literate people.

anyway, welcome to banglacricket forum.

Good educational background Cricketer probably won’t make to the national team! Maybe 1 in 1000; beside it doesn't take a superman to figured out the coach what he trying say or make you do after spending day after day with the same guy for years.:lol:

Dear friends
Thanks for prompt reply,I apologize if I hit anyone directly please don't take it other way. We should remember that we're talking in context of Bangladesh. You people know what is Bangladesh?My previous mail was for cool logical thinker. Some replyed that about school dropout players of other country but you should also look at the people who is playing the anckor role in the team. Please look at their selection body and other team- mates. Please don't mind I'm over 30s and my mail also for them and literate people only. I welcome everyone to answer my mail but before answering please talk with your seniors.

Cricket literacy is the only literacy that is required!

Funny topic, this!

Hannan Sarkar is a student of AMMA (American International University of Bangladesh, a private university situated in Banani area).

Hasibul Hussain Shanto, a former national player, used to be a student of North South University, also in Banani, the best private university in Bangladesh.

Sanwar Hossain is (was) a student of Dhaka University.

Khaled Mahmud Sujon and Tareq Aziz works in one of the private banks - can't remember the exact name now (source: recent news report about giving them awards), so they must be well-educated.

Mohammad Ashraful is supposedly a school-dropout, at least as far as the word around goes.


Among the above few, Sanwar Hossain is the worst international player (batsman) that I've seen. Ashraful has had trouble living with the star syndrome, Hannan Sarkar has trouble concentrating in cricket (reports a certain paper), Hasibul Hussain is not even in the national team now, and he's now 28!, and I'm not gonna talk about Sujon, I believe all of you know his weaknesses, and Tareq Aziz is still a very new player to have discovered any major weakness besides the weakness of too expensive, which is usual for any fast bowler coming from Bangladesh domestic cricket.

I just know one thing, if anyone can succeed in one form, like in studies, then I believe that he can also succeed in cricket, too.

As we've learned from one of the members here that Test Cricket helps players to be patient, like Habibul Bashar grew into patience which our cricketers didn't have before our attaining test status.

In other words, one thing helps in another thing, which has led to the introduction of office leagues and corporate leagues in domestic cricket.

I disagree with the writer of this topic. Education is not a criteria to be a cricketer. Having educational background is offcourse a good thing but not necessarily a must to become a cricketer. Ability to play and possesing cricket sense are the major qualities of a cricketer. The captain however, in my mind, should have some sort of decent educational skills. He has to perform other duties than just playing cricket. He has to reason, think, make decisions, communicate, guide and must posses some sense of cricketing history to deal with various situations. Yes, the captain should be all of that ideally and an eduacted man will learn those more quickly. He has to be a performing cricketer above all of that.

Why make a different thread about it?

I'd hate to sound rude, but to me it looks like you are experiencing some superiority complexity issues. Yeah, you work for SIDA, live in Sweden, 30+ and what not. Most of us here are considerably younger than you. You will probably disagree with me, but each and everyone's reply to your previous post made more sense than yours. Looking at both your posts, they contain quite a few syntactical/spelling mistakes, none of which are typos. I guess English proficiency matters little to the Scandinavians. No offence, but this kind of topic coming out of you makes me laugh a bit.

PS: This is a forum/messageboard, and your post is not a "mail".

mba (is that a reference to your educational qualification!) I don't know what your intentions are with this post but I hope to God it is not to make a favourable impression with this board's posters with your "class" and "educated opinions". Your post smacks of prejudice and ignorance. However, I realise you are a new poster on this board, and your tone has been non-confrontational (even though some may say a condescending tone is even worse), and so I am ready to give you the benefit of doubt.

As for your topic of discussion. I don't even know how to respond to you. Are you trying to suggest that there is a direct correlation between institutional education and "cricketing IQ"? that "temperament and passion" to quote you can only be possessed by highly educated people? Sir! you have to do better than that. You say that your point is made obvious by you observations about the players of other nations. Care to share? Let me counter your point with an example from the top of my head (I am sure there are numerous). Sachin Tendulkar is a high school drop out.

It seems somebuddy here suggesting something new(revolutionary I shud say!) by saying "Education(I'm not sure which education he means) is the generator of Tallents(now probaly he is not sure of which education and which tallents)"

the history is full of Genius People coming from merely low 'Educational' backgrounds but attaining the highest positions in every fields: Engineering, Music, Art, Philosophy, Mathematics, Business and many other sectors.. not to mention SPORTS!!!

Educational Institutions even allow huge flexibiity in terms of his degree to a sportsman in their institute having national level performance just to honor their tallent!!!

Surely good education can only enhance a Tallented player's skills........ but how does that make it a basic criteria?!!!

"Cricket is a game of Literate people" --I think that is something the BRITISH COLONIAL RULERS actually used to believe and say once upon a very long time!!!!

I don't think so...the thing is that there are cricketers in Bangladesh without sound education who are more talented and capable in doing good in the international level than many of our literate cricketers...
For instance Rafique...he has VERY little education but is our best player...
So there's no point of bringing in educated ppl just so that they can understand the coach's words...becuase i wouldn't worry about that...sombeody in the team can do the translation if required.

Rubu
April 22, 2004, 04:51 PM
this is MY revolutionary observation (yeah, i'm learning to observe too, looking at other people ;) ).

education has nothing to do with anything, except for getting jobs.

here is why i think so:

* with the only exception of rabindranath all of our great poets are half literate. and even tagor never went to school. bulk of the other were really poor, never had enough chance to get academic knowledge.
* I'm sure all of u can recall some example of bright student dropping out because of proverty. a rich's child will never have to do that doesn't matter how dumb he/she is. and eventually will get the digree. 90% time, academic digree is the sole representative of economical condition. in our country, several bright students can't become doctor/engineer because they are not bright enough for gov colleges. but rich people can easily get these digree through private schools.

* does education really helps building honesty? poor hard working people using physically labor to earn every single penny. literate people takes bribe sitting in the offices. my pesonal experience, u don't have to take it as a point, the best person (person with the best mind) i've ever seen was a son of a maid servent.
* none of the world famous scientists were highly educated. albart einstain, one of the best scientist of all time, had real hard time passing high school. teacher knew him as the dummest boy of the class.
* there is a apparent contadiction between highly educated player. professionally playing a game (specially cricket) requires a lot of time. and so does study. but u got only 24 hours in a day. u have to choose one of them.

getting tired, so, i'll add some more points latter (may be).

to end, if u go for a job the first thing they will ask, what digree u got. even with the most powerful uncles, u can't get a graduate's job by being under matric. point made?

You are welcome to post your views but be prepared to cop some criticism and disagreements with your point of view once in a while because that is what a discussion board is about. As you can see, with regards to this particular post of yours, most members tend to disagree.

tongue in cheek... extrapolating from mba's post - since there are some here who profess the title doctors perhaps they can be outstanding cricketers and take Bangladesh to the next level. So "say" is hoping that these people get some cricket refresher courses at BKSP and take the helms of Bangladesh cricket. We can be world beaters :)

MBA bhai, hoping to hear more from you. I guess some of the 'kids' were a little harsh and after reading your post, I can understand their reaction as well. Apni holen purano ghoranar manush, ajkaal kaar polapine oto kichu bujhena.

IN any case, this thread almost died and I don't want to renew it. Just wanted to welcome you to the board and one last thing - you should feel proud to be a member of this board. The members here are die hards Bangladesh fans and you really have to give them credit for it. We blindly support a team who took five years to win an ODI and has not managed a 'real' result in any of their test matches and yet, these fans stay up all night to follow our every match.

As for respect - it works both ways. Chotoder jodi amra na shikhai, ora shikbe kotha theke ? We hope you'll join us during the BD tour of WI. Once again, welcome to the board.

I don't know why I am adding my opinion to this extraordinary thread. A few people here know my age as I had discussed this when I joined last year. So I should have understood Mr. MBA's post better than most others. Unfortunately, I did not find his reasoning logical, though he has a right to have an opinion.

The only benefit of doubt that I can give him is that may be he did not mean what he said. There have been examples given here of Tendulkars and Wasim Akrams and our Rafique. There have not been too many of Brearley's or Srikkanth or Anil Kumble's that the world has seen.

I am all in favor of education as are most people, but believe me that does not have much to do with cricketing abilities.

But let us not go on all out attack on this Mr. MBA

April 24, 2004, 05:27 PM
Hey guys I am a bit late on this thread, but here is my opinion on this:

Suppose you <strong> held all other things constant (talent included)</strong>; would you prefer to have a more educated cricket team rather than less?

I think the answer is yes. Someone who is better educated will be more likely to analyze the situation better and make better decisions. And clearly, our batsmen need to make better decisions!

But it is important to remember that we should not choose education <strong> at the expense</strong> of talent. The example of Tendulkar and others mentioned earlier calrify this point.

Mr. Mba makes a very valid point, but he put it across very badly.

I think that getting talent is by far the most important part of selection/coaching. But giving our talented cricketers some more formal education is not a bad idea at all...

Dear Brothers
Hello! after my openion I've received lots of fireball even personal attack.You know that the path(age) you're walking now I've passed 10+ years before. In this age I was also hot like you. I specially want to talk to them who are now in outside of Bangladesh, actually in one sence they're representating our country please at least learn from others how to honour people. Mind it if you expect honour you've to give honour first.
I again saying that Cricket is a game of literate people. It is a game of temper, if you're not able to check your temper you never understand/play cricket. Now you brothers understand why educational plat-form is essential? So think what is happening among the players/others in Bangladesh. Only ideal education bring good performance as well as tolerance limit in long-run.
You people can say anything as your age but I didn't mind. Someone are very good in English. Some wrote about Sweden, I just want to mention that I've visited lots of country in my professional life as United Nations, SIDA, ILO representative and I found that Sweden is one of the best country for living if you've any relative in Sweden you can ask them about it. In Sweden I found 98% people understand and speak English. It may not be upto the mark of some of you brother. At least they've the knowledge of honour and unlimited tolerance otherwise Scandinavian (Norway) couldn't work to meet-up the problem between Govt. and Tamil Tiger in Sri-Lanka. Even US and UK tried it but fail. Thats why I wrote that You know what is Bangladesh?We people don't tolerate other.
I'm sorry to write such thing. I welcome all types of criticism but not personal attack.

Every cricket fans should agree that cricket is a game of literate people, which involved temperment and passion. We can find those qualities in other country's players. For the improvement of Bangladesh cricket team the selectors and coach should find such good educational background players so that they can really understand what the coach says and what to do in the field. I really want to know, the educational status and from which educational institute the present players come from?

It was very pethetic see how mr. mba was delt with. I know it is not a school where members shoud teach pepole how to del with others, keeping in consederation others' sense of self-respect. But I geuss it was hursh for him to be scolded in such a way by most of the members (off corse not all, some were simpethetic and some mentained a niutral stand seemingly enjoing the hole event). Daspite the priveiling thinking that some pepole are incoregible, pepole here could have worked more posetively and constractivly in helping Mr. mba corecting his problem of atitude, as to me, nobody is complitely incoregible. There are lavels of incoregibelity. And how petiently and skilfuly one can del with others' incoregibility reflects one's matority, which, by the way, might always be a never ending proces.
Anyway, thes are all what I think, and everyone has all the rights to disagree. But I geuss it is never a bad thing to reconseder one's actions, and to look for poseble places of refinment, in spite of the fact that, given the ego that we all have, we are ofen not very receptive of others advise.
That said, I mysalf found all the mambers of this website to be wondarful with sporadec wayward behevor, which is nevar a thing that we can complitly write off.
As for Mr. mba, the pruf that that event did not go very wel is that this is a bangladesh criket fan website and even thoug he naver actualy said anything aginst bangladesh criket or bangladesh, right now he is not being seen activly in this website, in spite of the fact that some will say that it is his problam that he is not hare. I hope he is still there and enjoing this wondarful website

Must it be you to figure that out! Well, malice wasn't in the 'intention list', from my part
.

now, after reading the two postes in each qoute, do u guys think what i'm thinking? if not, here is some fact:
#pethetic, openion.... just coincidence?
#mr. suds registered today, and his first post was about mba. one of the thread opened by mr. mba (the original one) is not on page one of the threads anymore. someone just registered, went to second page to read about something and then post a comment about it is ok. but specially nothing about cricket but mba. coincidence?
#suds coming is just after mba disappers. coincidence?
#first day, first post. coincidence?
#equally large number of misspelling. coincidence?

But anyway, Agent's work would have won him awards over at Alochona - for unearthing conspiracies before they hatched fully.

We'll look forward to suds/mba responses.

I am honored that the ue that isn't after my name is worthy of a few posts - again underlining my concern about quantity vs quality these days!

where is this color code guide that I obviously haven't read?

About qulity vs quantity - I think the in-between-series syndrome is taking a toll . I wonder what we would have done if we had this forum in the pre-Test status days.

Anyway, we could all work on the "quality" - a few good posts by everyone shouldn't hurt - get us all ready for the caribbean cruise.

Why don't you start a thread?

Asif .. stop kidding, you are not a kid anymore. :)

I just added another fruitless post to his thread. The thread is going but good to see the the main concern hasn't been discussed in the last few posts.

I know that FRB bhai wanted this thread closed with his post. FRB bhai, please go ahead and end this.

And here I take the honor to officially end this long tiresome thread with an unique quote of J.M.Coetzee, the nobel lauret in literature, excerpts from his autobiography "In Boyhood: Scenes from a Provincial Life":

"In this game, there is no pretending, no mercy, no second chance....in the middle of this huge arena he is on trial, one against eleven, with on one to protect him.....Cricket is not a game, it is the truth of life."

p.s. sorry didn't see Arnab's post while typing :(
