Bangladesh should prepare in NZ type conditions,it won't be on the sub con.Agree. From what I hear, Sylhet stadium is more friendly towards pacers than other Bangladeshi cricket grounds. I hope the team management won't chicken out and ask for heavy rolling before the match.

Pinak gone for 23. Bogra boyTowhid Hridoy in.

Eshen
September 27, 2017, 11:02 PM
Afif gone too, for 19.

With all these talk about whitewash, I guess our top three (Saif, Pinak, Afif) did not take Afghanistan seriously, and paid for their complacency.

Let's see what our lesser known batsmen can do.

Don't think our bowling was even full strength, no Mishu or Shakhawat. Yet we got Afghans so cheaply!

Batting department still a worry though...

Afghans are at BD stage with bat. Maybe slightly ahead. They are entering test cricket with the batting strength we had around 2005 with Bashar, Ashraful, Aftab, Rajin leading the way.

They are miles ahead in the bowling department.

aklemalp
September 28, 2017, 12:47 PM
Afghan open bowler had great figures:

Mujeeb: 10-1-22-4
2 of those wickets were LBW, this is an indication that he is a wicket-to-wicket bowler and good at line-and-length. Only 16 years old and have already played 6 List-A's and 6 T20s. He bowls off break. His full name is Mujeeb Zadran.

I will definitely keep an eye on him. One for the future.

I am liking what I see from Kazi Anik so far, looks like a good allround prospect.

He has been drafted by Rajshahi in the BPL. Hopefully that experience will help him prepare for U/19 WC.

Think we got away this time. The batsmen struggling so much against Afghans on a home track! Don't see much hope for this bunch in NZ. I will be happy if we don't end up in a plate group.

Lol you guys realise AFG are probably in the top 8 teams if not higher at this level? Not to mention they get a big genetic advantage.

That and half their team are probably in their mid 20's

Eshen
September 30, 2017, 05:08 PM
As per Imtiaz Hossain (opener, Sylhet Division), quality of the Sylhet wicket has gone down a lot lately. It will reflect poorly on the game development committee if our boys struggling in Sylhet not because quality of opposition bowling, but because of poorly prepared pitches.

Alarm bells should be ringing in BCB headquarters by now.

What on earth is happening. I thought Bangladesh Under 19 are giants in age group cricket. Seems like they are drawing inspiration from their boro bhais.

Alarm bells should be ringing in BCB headquarters by now.

What on earth is happening. I thought Bangladesh Under 19 are giants in age group cricket. Seems like they are drawing inspiration from their boro bhais.

I don't think they care. If under 17, 16s is not free from corruption then it will effect the under 19s.

One example,

Recently in the under 16 cricket tournament one selection committee lead by Hasibul Hasan shanto was made to select players for under 17 skill camp.

This was the squad

28 players are called for the camp all across the country. Parvez Hossain Emon Fardeen Khan Mehrab Hossain Opi Faiaz Habib Khan Alvi Haque Sazid Hasan Sazzad Hossain Md. Tahsin Prantik Nawrose Rokon Uddin Mehrab Hossain Ahin Rahim Ahmed Sahadat Hossain Dipu Mahfuzul Islam Shuvo Shahriar Kabir Shuvo Masud Rana Mahmudul Hasan Towhid Shahin Alam Md. Mehedi Hasan Naimur Rahman Noyon Iftekhar Rahman Taj Minhazur Rahman Leon Islam Rishad Hossain Towhidul Islam Limon Pritom Kumar Amite Hasan.

According to stats most of them deserved the call and I am happy. But many players too here I don't think was good enough based on stats. Like Pritom Kumar, played scored 33 in whole tournament and wasn't even top 20, He was selected over many others who were more successful.

This is just one example. I havevseen many times lower ranked players from these tournaments getting the nods ahead of better ones. Sometimes no,3 rated batsman not in the team but player who didnt acheive even top 10 gets picked. I believe bribes does the job for some players.

Saif Hassan has first class average of 47 with three hundreds. How does he struggle with Afghan U-19?

His highest score is only 28 in the 5 match YODI against Afghan U-19?

Once again... how poor is our domestic cricket? especially first class?

aklemalp
October 6, 2017, 02:19 PM
Think we are not giving the afghans the credit that they deserve.

And we wonder why Rashid Khan is so good. Their youth and talent is far more superior than some seasoned ICC members.

Give them a few more years and they will rule this division of cricket.

SportingBD
October 6, 2017, 02:23 PM
Afghanistan cricket board invest and focus a lot in their U-19 development.
They have a proper concentration on development in that level.

Compare that to BCB? We were struggling to arrange a U-19 tour:(, the tour against Afghan U-19 was last moment thing..

Yes they Afghan deserve a lot of credit, especially the Afghan cricket board.

Possible or probable...but will this team threaten for a semifinal berth? Doubt it. BCB has not been developing the A team or the U-19 for the past few years. The fact that we have no depth for the national team beyond the Riyads and Imruls and Rubels kind of highlights how much we've f***d up.

October 7, 2017, 08:54 PM

I wonder how many "18 year old" Rashid Khans were playing on the Afghan side. Remember when we sent BKSP adult men disguised as 12 year olds to win the Dana and Gothia cup? We beat a notable Brazilian academy 6-0, in a game a young Ronaldinho has been speculated to have played in (!) Did any of our 11 players lift a World Cup? Did any of our 11 players get a contract with Barcelona?

This is inexcusable and a disturbing outcome for us regardless.

Last season Under 19 squad was relatively young. Many of the players were 17, didnt stop them from doing well.

Embarrassing if they use age of Afghans as an excuse.

Eshen

Afghan offie Mujeeb Zadran terrorized them throughout the series, even with the new ball! The guy already knows how to bowl doosra!

congratulations to Afghanistan boys for their hard work , hard earn money. As a war country, the improvements they r showing, it’s really lighting up for them. Good luck to them.
