Rafiq without a doubt.:)

January 22, 2005, 12:08 PM
I think it is Mashrafee Mortoza.

if you are talking about all time greats, then you need to add a few more on there. Raquibul Hasan atleast should be on there without a doubt.

But its difficult to compare players from the pre-test era to the current crop.

January 22, 2005, 12:35 PM
Definitely Rafique.

January 22, 2005, 12:37 PM
It is too early to discuss this issue; give it another five years so we can judge Ash and Mashrafee fairly!

January 22, 2005, 01:10 PM
Rafiq is the best all-rounder we have seen so far. We can rely on him and he is consistent with his performance.

January 22, 2005, 01:36 PM
Rafique, with 100% confidence.

January 22, 2005, 02:20 PM
Rafique without even a single doubt in my mind

January 22, 2005, 03:03 PM
How many of us (specially those voting for Rafiq) have seen Lipu, Nannu, Bulbul or Akram play. Please don't vote if you haven't seen all of them play.

I haven't seen Lipu but rest I have. Bulbul, Akram and Nannu were good in their old days but Rafiq was good and becoming very good with time but I regret he does not have much time left in his career. Wishing the tiger all the best! And I hope he recovers from his hamstring injury and give Zimb. a good taste of what the tiger has got.

January 22, 2005, 03:36 PM

I saw them all, but my memory about Lipu is very much faded.. But I can tell you, none of them had the attitude, body langauge, and intensity as Rafiq have.

January 22, 2005, 05:03 PM
It is Rafique, without a doubt. The image he has created not only in Bangladesh, but in the entire world of cricket is itself the answer. The respect he has earned is a lifetime's achievement for a cricketer from Bangladesh.

January 22, 2005, 05:47 PM
Lipu: was smart player.
Nannu: most match winner batsman
Bulbul: one great batsman
Akram: hard hitter and my dear person
Ashraful: monkey climbing and oily bamboo, climbs 5” up sleeps 10” down.
Habibul: class batsman
Rafiq: all time great all-rounders
Mortaza: most promising player of this day.

As a captain I would probably chose Lipu, those who remember him should agree that he had very good cricket knowledge.

As a batsman I would put Bulbul first. I believe if he had at least half of the luck of Alok, he would be our top scorer.

Bangladesh's all time greatest player: I would go for Rafiq. Who else play cricket from the heart like him???

Well…I would pick all of them on my all time best Bangladeshi cricket team.

January 22, 2005, 06:10 PM
looks like mohammed rafique is the clear winner. :bald:

January 22, 2005, 06:15 PM
if u look for the best batsman its a hard choice.

but if u look for the best player with bowling and batting together, then none comes close to rafiq. best left arm spinner and a very under rated batsman who can win the match with bat as well(remember bd's first ODI win against kenya):flag:

January 22, 2005, 06:20 PM
I like the analogy between Ash and the monkey climbing an oily bamboo - totally true, how did you come up with such a good analogy!

January 22, 2005, 09:55 PM
looks like rafique is going for a landslide victory.

January 22, 2005, 09:58 PM
Rafique. No doubt on that. He is probably the only all rounder from Bangladesh who has created an international reputation. His figures speak for him.

January 22, 2005, 10:56 PM
Mohammad Ashraful

January 23, 2005, 12:33 AM
No Athar Ali ? Lipu or Akram, no way ?

January 23, 2005, 12:39 AM
Hasibul Hossain Shanto

January 23, 2005, 02:06 AM
Lipu had ethics problem

January 23, 2005, 06:11 AM
Off Topic..

Some Bangladeshis have the weirdest names. What kind of a name is 'Lipu'? Apparently it's a guy's name! And Nannu? Doesn't that mean grandmother? Who the hell would name their kid 'grandmother'! Bulbul? *SIGH*

Then there are the other quality names like pinky.. rinky.. tinku.. wonky.. plonky.. ?!?! Thank heavens none are in the cricket team (yet) :duh:

January 23, 2005, 09:58 AM
Ragique stands out from the list. His attitude alone puts him in a different class. When he bowls he goes for wickets, not merely for a containing job. When he bats he tries to win with the bat. He's the only BD cricketer that can be called a match winner.

It's Rafique-end of discussion.

January 23, 2005, 10:19 AM
Rafiq no doubt....he is the first player from bangladesh who is considered as world class....everyone agrees he can play in most other international side for his allrounding ability....

January 23, 2005, 12:25 PM
To me it is Khaled Mashud. He is serving behind the wicket for 11 years now and scored so many important runs. His name must have been in the nomination list

January 23, 2005, 01:04 PM
The list isn't smooth.. the names can be divided in groups:

1. Lipu/Nannu/Bulbul/Akram were not exposed to the Top teams much.. they dint get the scope for that due to age.... we can guess their potential.. but having to judge them without knowing what their performance would be in current level.

2. Ashraful/Bashar r taken to be potential.. but they havn't been consistant.. so they get some negative gradings for that.

3. Mashrafee is sprited+potential+consistant.. but his problem is injury... and has been kept out for long.. otherwise he stands the highest chance to compete with Rafiq.. but then again... we r having to guess what he would have done.. if... :)

....so Rafiq actually becomes the Automatic choice.. coz he got Potency+Performance+Consistancy+Exposure! :up:
