I am happy that BD is heading towards the right direction. Hopefully no inside politics will hamper the process.

I am bit confused, why Mushfiqur Rahman, and Mashrafee added to this development program. They already developed; both of them our regular national players.

Masri needs to get the practice as he was out of match for a long time.

High performance BCB
Sports Reporter(Dailystar)



In a bid to raising the performance levels of its cricketers to international standards, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to launch a high performance training programme later this month.


The Board has named 24 cricketers to take part in the programme, which starts with a video analysis programme on May 22. The first batch begins training a week later at the Savar-based BKSP.

"The programme has been designed in line with our future programmes and hopefully it will make our cricketers more competitive," BCB advisor Mahmub Anam told a press conference at the Bangabandhu National Stadium conference room yesterday.


BCB's development committee chairman Arafat Rahman, CEO Macky Dudhia and Australian coach Richard McInnes, who will be in charge of the scheme, were also present.


"We have to be tough in setting high standards and it is the only way to achieve our goal," said Dudhia.


McInnes will be assisted by specialist local and foreign coaches during the training programme, which includes skill mediation and application in batting, bowling, fielding, education in language, computer, health and nutrition, strength and conditioning training, tactical awareness and psychological skill development.


"We want to prepare the youngsters so that they can handle the pressures of international cricket at the age of 22-23. We will also run a pace bowler search programme," said McInnes, who coached the Bangladesh U-19 team at the Youth World Cup.


"The players have been selected based on ability, attitude and long-term potential to serve Bangladesh in both Test and one-day cricket. The squad will be reviewed every six months to add or remove players. Any national player not part of a series or cricketers returning from injury will also be included," McInnes told.


An additional name in the 24-member list is Bangladesh speedster Mashrafee bin-Mortuza who is making an attempt to return to action after surgeries.


The squad was selected by a panel consisting of national selectors, Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore and McInnes himself.


"Bangladesh have a major problem in wicketkeeping and to address the problem, we will bring an expert in this line in June," Dudhia informed.


Australian wicketkeeping coach Andrew Selff will be the first foreign coach to assist this programme.


Mahbub Anam added that from now on, McInnes, local coaches Sarwar Imran, Nazmul Abedin Fahim and Shahidul Islam Ratan and a member of the national selection panel will work as junior selectors in different age groups.


Chief selector Faruque Ahmed will work as an U-19 selector while Athar Ali and GM Nawsher Prince for U-17 and U-15 respectively.


The squad: Aftab Ahmed, Nazimuddin, Naeem Islam, Nafees Iqbal, Nadif Chowdhury, Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, Sagir Hossain Pavel, Dhiman Ghosh, Hasibul Haque Babel, Shamimul Haque Biddyut, Mushfiqur Rahman, Shahadat Hossain Rajib, Talha Jubair, Nazmul Hossain, Anwar Hossain Monir, SK Russell, Ziaur Rahman, Mahfuz Rahman Sohel, Yasin Arafat, Arafat Sunny, Enamul Haque Jr, Asim Chowdhury, Alamgir Kabir, Gazi Alamgir and Mashrafee Bin Mortuza.

This Mushfiqur Rahman is not the one who is at WI now!! There is another one in under 19 (or under 17) team. Probably BCB selected him for the program.
