Test captain Shakib on holiday in US?
While his team practice and train in Bangladesh ahead of WI series.

Does not make any sense.

This isn't kind of thing we should be expecting of our captain. He is always trying to get special privileges because he is ranked No.1 all-rounder in the world, regardless of his batting form going down the drain.

It's not just that the work ethic and professionalism isn't there, as captain and senior player/icon of BD cricket and best player of the team he's a massive role model to kids, up and coming talent and the talent filtering into the team.

Holidaying when he should be practising tells all incoming talent that it is ok to have that sort of attitude.

Sounds like shakib should retire from international cricket and make his money in the t20 leagues, can't want it too much if with the responsibility of captain this is the example/bar he's setting for the team and BD cricket.

Very disappointing, makes you think how good shakib could've been with a higher work ethic and more professional attitude.

once shakib asked for his own hotel room as he did not want to share a room. there were lots of criticism in BC about this as people was discussing he cant get special treatment.

this was the time when shakib was the only one that was getting wks and scoring the runs. I said in that thread "if he wants the damn hotel give him that. he is the only one thats playing"

those days are past and shakib no longer holds that pedigree anymore

An athlete, a sportsman, a player cricketer, anyone of that sort would be respected, appreciated and admired by me/us and others ONLY when they are playing and playing with their heart. That is the only reason we pay attention and observe them to begin with, not to look at their 'chehara'! When the player behave/act/perform like garbage, we will ignore them and throw them out like unnoticeable obstacles on a road! Tough sh!t. You are not heart surgeon, not saving lives or writing mad manuscripts or upholding humanity that I will be running after you forever! Play well OR get lost!

Shakib has earned enough money. Hot wife with US passport. A daughter. Restaurant and cosmetics business.

His next life plan is to move to US with his family and get US passport. Looking from his attitude, he does not give a rat's *** to BD team anymore.

Only foolish BD fans and useless Prothom Alo think Shak is a dedicated BD player. He IS NOT.

Does Bangladesh play as many matches as India , England , Australia throughout the year?? We hardly get any matches, I doubt we play even half of what some countries play in a year, only three T20s and a T20 Tri-Series in Sri Lanka after the Sri Lanka series this year, No Tests, No ODIs, no nothing This cannot be an excuse for not showing up in training especially when you are the 'CAPTAIN' of the team and there is a new coach taking over

He's in his 30's now, you don't know how his body is after a decade of being an all rounder

If it was against coaching staffs instructions, then it's one thing to be angry about, but no one knows what the situation is, if it was against the advice of coaches, then Papon would have opened his big mouth by now anyway

Do you know how wladimir klitcsko was a champion in his 40's? Rest, towards the end he was training only 3 days a week instead of the traditional 6, rest is important, it helps the body and mind.

I say its an overreaction because people don't even know 1/10th of the situation but coming to a conclusion, show me where this holiday of his is against coaches direction.

Half our fans are Bunch of emotional fairies, so are our players hence we can never win anything.

Even if he needs some rest which he shouldn’t as he’s an athlete and needs to be able to manage his body, can’t blame international cricket when BD barely play, if his body isn’t right then he’s not keeping his fitness up or it’s IPL and other leagues and that’s his responsibility to manage.

But the point I was going to make is that if he needs rest he could at least be with the team, doesn’t have to go on a holiday, make appearances etc.

Rest up surrounded by team management and the support staff (Physio, massage therapist etc). He is t20 and test captain, should be with the team, even if he didn’t have a leadership role if he’s in the squad he should be with the team.

He shouldn't need rest because he's an athlete? That's just a ridiculous statement, if anything an athlete requires more rest

Physical rest needs to be required because of the years he's played, not always immediate play time that's important.

Mental fatigue can be worse than physical fatigue

Look at Messi, had a poor game vs Iceland, refused to relax and take time off training like asked was worse second match. Relaxing away can be good for him, it may not, but the point am making is no one knows for sure at this moment. Let's wait and see how he does in tests vs West indies, hopefully it have something for the spinners.

He shouldn't be making appearances though, that's idiotic him and I agree with you on that.

Please take context of ones paragraph into account, you do this all the time.

He’s an athlete and as such needs to be responsible enough to manage his workload, it’s not BCB’s fault if he overworks himself with franchise leagues.

Either BCB need to tell him it’s not good enough to put international cricket 2nd or shakib needs to decide for himself whether he picks franchise cricket or international cricket, the way shakib is running things is not fair to BCB or BD cricket, they pay him good money for his contract.

Senior players from other teams know they have to work even harder to maintain fitness at their age.

Shakib going on holiday just before a Test match was a bad decision. Not only for his own benefit but it sends out bad signals to his teammates. Also with a new coach coming could have helped him with his batting.

Problem is BCB, media and fans are to soft when it comes to Shakib. And Shakib knows he is too precious and takes advantage of that.

Shakib might be our best player but he is also an negative element to the team in other ways.

Again, you don't know the situation, but commenting like you do, how do you know he didn't get permission from bcb and coaching staff for the holiday?

How can you say its unfair to bcb if bcb and coaches said he can go holiday and take a break away from a series

Shak knows no matter what, he will get a few wickets here and there, and this performance will be more than enough to keep his place in this mediocre BD team.

When competition is non-existent, when there is no one waiting in the pipeline to take your place, this is what happens.

Look at India. Kohli will never be complacent, but can he even afford to become complacent? The answer is NO. Look at how many players they have in the pipeline. Lokesh Rahul, Pant, and so on.

Also look at the work ethic of Kohli. He also played in the IPL, performed better than Shak, and as soon as the IPL was over for him, he didn't go for a vacation, but rather, he put all his focus to prepare himself for the England series. Even in terms of preparation, the captain led the team from the front.

Mark my word: I have seen the hunger of Kohli for this England series, and they will win the test series by a big margin. ODIs and T20Is will be toss ups, because in LOIs, England is quite strong.

Also Mark my word: We have a captain on vacation with a mindset of don't give a damn to his own team. After AFG whitewash, we will be duly whitewashed by WI in tests and T20Is. We may win one ODI.

The saddest thing is these, guys will still get royal welcomes even after losing a series.

We have been rising for 25 odd years and we still have nothing to show for.

Does this guy think he is Ronaldo, I don't know how Shakib can just take a holiday when his team just got whitewashed, by a side consisting of refugees who ave sacrificed a lot to get to where they are.

'And don't play the tired card, guy can travel to IPL and play non stop T20, don't see him getting tired then, if he is not committed to playing for Bangladesh then, blood someone new to replace him, its better to have a committed and determined player rather than one that is not committed to the team.

Bangladesh has better facilities than Afghanistan, has more experience than Afghanistan yet we still manage to lose against them. Following this team is like taking a step forward and taking 3 steps back.

Take the brilliant West Indies for example, in the WC T20 in 2016, there was a major divide between players and management, they couldn't organisedJERSEYS for the team for the final match, yet they still managed to take the trophy home.

On the face of it, yes I agree, but other players do take time off

It's not a Shakib thing, players take time off training, Id rather have Shakib take occasional time off from training if he can maintain form and play all the matches

Time off can re energise athletes, if coaches didn't think so, they wouldn't allow any players to take any time off

Who are the players that actually turned up to the camp, am pretty sure Shakib isn't the only one taking time off, only difference is he's gone US and is putting things on social media.

No one knows enough to say he isn't acting professionally, if coaches deemed the best thing for him was time off, he's acting professionally, if they wanted him to turn up to camp, but he said he can't be bothered then it's very unprofessional, my point is I don't know, neither does anyone else here, all I see here are people arguing about things like they know the full situation without anything to back their point up apart from opinion

Kohli wants to utilize his down times by training in foreign conditions to prepare for upcoming tour where Shakib uses his down time go as far away from cricket as possible.. in this case United States!

True to be fair, but I reckon there were other reasons why Shakib didn't play test series vs South Africa

Also Kohli didn't play County like initially planned, so no he didn't spend longer preparing for England, he just took a break from afghan test

Listen man, I saw you when you were pre-teen in London, you and your little sister Anjum. Do you remember? Man I am feeling extremely down right now. I knew our big brother Farukh bhaiya from the 70's when he left Dhaka for Stockholm! We sued to look up to him, we were little, Farukh bhaiya had a rock n'roll band back in Dacca, back in Pakistan period. He was a great drummer.

Nothing wrong with Shakib taking a break. (Knowjng him, be thankful it didn't come during a test series)

But a motivated leader would've taken a shortened vacation and return to training after such a disastrous tour. Then again.. Shakib isn't Kohli

What did he do to "deserve a break" while the rest of the squad trained? His captaincy was woeful against Afghanistan, and even worse with the bat. Him with the bowl wasn't that great either, especially in a spinner friendly pitch.

Is all of squad on camp though?

Pictures certainly did not show that

He doesn't deserve a break, but sometimes you need a break at your worst, maybe coaching staff agreed he needed little bit of time off, maybe it was there idea, nobody here knows, one thing for sure is no one can come to a conclusion on what we currently know and everyone here wants to jump to one.

Pictures I've seen didn't, I should have added that to my initial post my mistake on that, mine wasn't a rhetorical question, it was a question I was asking hence the '?' and am not blindly following anyone, I've said I agree with those saying Shakib should be in the camp, all I've said and I've made this clear is we don't know if he went against coaching staff orders or if coaching staff thought it'll be best for him to have a break, we simply don't know.

You mean like the recent Afghanistan series or the whole of 2017 in ODI's where he averaged 99 runs per wicket.

Everyone criticised him during the Afghanistan series anyway, his batting was awful and captaincy was mediocre.

2017 he averaged 99 yes, but let's not ignore the pitches he played on were not great, sure bring up 2017 stats, but why not 2018, he averages 17 this year

When he averaged 99 with the ball, he wasn't short on practice was he? And he certainly wasn't short on practice with the bat in T20 vs Afghanistan.

When you criticise everything, the weight behind criticism dissappears, look through the thread its bunch of posters who are posting with all emotion, ironically acting like the man they're criticising.

So much negativity before a series even starts, Ben Stokes didn't get as much criticism in the UK when he went round punching people.

If Sakib was doing well we would not be complaining.
He was never the type who would often do extra training sessions to improve.
This is just not the right time for him to be on vacation while his teammates are preparing for an important series, that too when he is the captain and a senior player.
BCB is to blame here for allowing him with such privileges.

A decade ago he was taking 5 wicket hauls in South Africa in tests versus that strong South African team, and then money and IPL came his way, these days it will be tough to even make him play a test match in South Africa, coaches will get sacked before objecting to him taking 'rest'. What good has come to our cricket by allowing him to play so many T20 leagues, we cannot even win a t20 series versus Afghanistan with him in the side.

I wish Shakib was even 5% the leader Pakistan's Imran Khan was , finding talents like Inzamam , Waqar and Wasim and then turning a losing team into world champions. Currently it is a far fetched dream of winning the Asia cup let alone winning a world cup one day with our current group of players and the lack of leadership in the team.

Apart from Mashrafee, Bangladesh has no proper Captains in the current line up.

A proper tournament captain has to be a key regular contributor, has to have personality (not arrogance), good strategist, and a good mentor to his players. This is a minimum requirement for a tournament winning captain.

Shakib IMO has only one of the aspect at best

Who is Shakib? He is neither a Flintoff nor Kallis.

He is a mediocre all rounder now a days and so are his team mates.

Quality team mates for sure helps, but if Shakib was a true champion and professional, he would not be dependent on team mates for his own motivation.

If BD team is a joke and Shakib cannot motivate himself enough to take the team seriously, he should simply refuse to captain this team, instead of doing a 'don't care' half-hearted job.

Captaincy is a trust, either you repay the trust or you don't accept the job in the first place.

At this rate, Shakib may show up on the eve of the test match and introduce himself as the captain of the Bangladesh team to Steve Rhodes, I don't think they met yet :floor:

But he is an old man needing some holidays, and the Bangladesh public are too busy with the Football World Cup to notice.

Look a veteran player is allowed to take vacations. Touring puts a strain on marriage and relationships. So I do not begrudge Shakib taking a vacation at all. BUT! IPL has been over for a while. He's doing paid appearances in Jackson Heights during his "vacation". And, it's a new coach and new regime - this is not when you WOULD take a long vacation. Just not ideal. I'm not going to go and question his patriotism or professionalism. He hasn't accomplished what he has by just being a good athlete. But he does seem to be taking certain things for granted and that does not bode well.

Using spinners from one side may be a good ploy on this wicket. But using spinners continuously from both sides of the wicket like 5th day makes you a laughing stock.

The pacers could have taken few wickets (may be) if brought to attack early. We wasted the early moisuture and the new balls.

35 overs before lunch, 2 overs to the pacers . I wonder how many test teams in history have such a start to a test match and we are talking about a pitch in West Indies not even a dust bowl in Dhaka. What is the point of taking the two pacers then , to be used as part timers when the spinners need rest? Giving majority overs to spinners is fine but why not let the quicks bowl even 10 first overs when conditions are best for pacers.

I didn't watch this Test and cannot comment on what happened. I'm only responding to your perhaps rhetorical question because it brought back some memories.

India in the 70s used to regularly use pacers to 'take the shine off the ball' and let the spinners get stuck in. Sunil Gavaskar even opened the bowling a few times.

Dont get carried away here , he was wicket less in the first innings where everyone got a wicket. One fifty and one good bowling performance in the entire series (on helpful conditions where Miraz has five wickets too) , and we think he is justified in taking extended holidays as the captain? That is the problem with us fans , and the entire team not performing doesn't help either so we get ecstatic with any performance he puts up and he is pardoned for everything

whether it’s justified or not, we have no power to pardon or punish.

The only power a spectator, any spectator, has is to be content with what is on the screen.

Today my screen said BD scored less than 50 in a test match. Liton scores half of that. The only power I have to be happy for Liton.

Do I have any other power? Do you? No. we are simply watching a movie unfold. Your happiness, your sadness makes no difference to the outcome of the movie.

So choose to be content.

There's no justification for taking extended vacation. Piss poor from Shakib. But he atleast shows up to play. But there are some guys who are perpetually in vacation mode, and have been for a decade.

Part of the reason riyad still gets selected is because youngsters haven’t taken their opportunities and proven to be better, at best they’ve shown that they give a similar output to riyad.

Liton, sabbir and soumya have all played 10/11 tests and none of them have hit a ton. They’ve showed glimpses of potential here and there but this is how a senior player like riyad still maintains his place, we are looking for someone better than him and youngsters haven’t been showing that.

I do think some youngsters need more of a go, and consistently not intermittently, namely continue with liton for a while longer and give shanto a try. I don’t think other youngsters like zakir have shown enough yet to be given consistent chances unless it’s for the speciality keeper role or the pace unit which is currently and has historically been the worst facet of the BD test game.

Just wondering, do people still consider nurul the best gloveman? Had some blunders this series.

As far as shakib on holiday, for me it’s not about whether he performs or not, it’s one thing to go off and prepare yourself for a series (which consists of proper training the best way you think it’s done for you), it’s another thing to have a long break, play some IPL matches under your own decision making, have a poor series (certainly as captain) against Afghanistan in t20s (after being t20 prepped from IPL) then taking a holiday and not having much prep time for an away series.

At very least as captain he has some responsibility to be a good role model and set a certain standard to the rest of he team, personally I think any professional athlete needs to have certain work ethic standards for themselves (just like anyone doing any other job).

Shakib Tamim Mushy Riyad watch each other’s back knowing if one of them go, the others may also have be forced out at any point. So strength in numbers. Back each other, stay seniors. Make money. Retire when they want to retire. Middle finger to anyone who comes in the way.

These 4 have been playing for ages. I agree in some formats which they are not suited, the seniors might have some influence to back this senior group. But apart from that they are there for their merit.

Mahamdullah and Mushfiq have a Brother in Law bond, but it is quite essential for them to back each other up to keep the sisters they have married in peace.

Tamim has the backing of blood from Cha Chu Akram Khan.

What I dislike is these 4 use politics so that they can control the coaches.

Many cricketers who even say they love playing test cricket really want to play domestic t20s as its more lucrative and comparatively much less gruelling. Also the more older the player is the more likely he might think this way.

Its kind of no big surprise that Shakib thinks this way really.

You need a coach among the U19 squads that need to make sure the next batch of players have the ability of playing longer formats of the game.

So where is the problem? If he doesn't want to play TEST, whats wrong saying so? If not why not correcting the wrong impression. Ato laaz shoromer ki ache... just say it.

After all its his life and his career, if he doesn't want to play TEST..... nobody can force him to play TEST.


But what I don't want is .... playing halfheartedly.... forced to play when he doesn't wants to play...... it doesn't do any good to anybody (player, team, fans, BCB).

I read this as him being frustrated about being asked the same question repeatedly. Instead of reading into this cryptic comment, I'd give more credence to what he actually says:

"Test cricket is one of my top priorities and I intend to carry on playing Test cricket as long as I can. If you ask me, Bangladesh still doesn’t have enough quality Test players, so I feel it is very important I continue to play as long my form and fitness permits. As a child, my dream was playing in whites for my country and that dream has an impact on how I look at different formats. But I’m afraid the younger cricketers might not necessarily have the same view and it’s no surprise some of them prefer the shorter formats."
