Daily Star interview with Tapas:



TB: No, it never bothers me. As a matter of fact I don't want too much written about me because I think I'm an average person and I want to stay that way. I don't want to go down, nor do I wish to reach for the stars.


I wish he did want to reach for the stars. Is there no fire in his belly?

You're so right, but I must admit his attitude when bowling suggests otherwise. He seems very very competitive, not representative of a guy who is content with the here and now, rather more like someone who wants to achieve much more.

I can't believe they would pick Razzaq ahead of the best pacer in the country! Would they open the bowling with Mushfiqur and Sujon?

yea Mahmud and Musfiq will open the bowling to let Lara score 700...ridiculous
no batsmen in our team even can score 40+ runs...why they are playing test...just raised my expectations now seeing them loosing and playing this type of cricket just getting my nerve.

That is a very modest and matured coment.. nicely said..

cheers for the nice man!
what he says doesnt mean he actually lacks the 'stomach' !

Yes, they ALL are modest. The only guys I got any smell of arrogance was Bashar and Rafique. No coincidence, but maybe 2 of our best players at the moment.:)

He comes across as a very strong and mature character. Given his recent performance I would say that regardless of what he may be sayinf here, he has certain goals set and is working towards them.
The bit about Kapali is important too. His advise regarding what Kapali should be doing now is particularly impressive. I hope Kapali is listening.

Unlike, Sujon whose mouth was the most excercised part of his body!
LOL. That's a money shot right there.

I share everyone's concerns about the opening bowling pair. Is it set in stone?

It's probably not coincidence. Winners always have confidence in their abilities, which most people will always equate with "arrogance." Who cares? Most people are losers anyway.

Taposh's interview reminds me of Majid Khan (the Pakistani great). Many consider him one the finest batsmen of his generation. Yet he never ever made a big deal of his talent or achievements, and would constantly talk down his exploits and abilities.
