I think this question is a bit shallow but I was just curious about which schools these players studied in. If anyone knows just type it in..

Aftab went to chittagong govt. high school. I remember he played for our nirman school team when he was in 6th grade.

That makes him a fellow alumnus as I did my A'levels there (1988-89). Any players in the offing from Scholastica? I was in the team but had just left the year before they started to play Nirman. In fact my younger brother opened the batting for Scholastica and faced the first ball bowled against the school when they entered the Nirman schools tournament the year after I left.

who's your younger brother?

there used to be a time when 5 out of 11 U-19's were Scholasticans.

i, however, played at a time when the downfall of scholastica had already started - way after the end of that era where all Scholastican Nirman players had Australian passports.

No. He left Scholastica in 1988 after finishing his O'levels. 1987 was the year Scholastica played their first Nirman game. He is now a barrister with his own practice in Dhaka.

btw people... did anybody ever see or heard of a player named Zahid Achcha? he played for Maple Leaf as well as Eskaton Shabuj Sangha during the early 90s... he was by far the fastest bowler i had seen in the dhaka circuit during that time period...

Nafis didnt go to Maple leaf in Chittagong, he was living in Dhaka with his uncle while studying at Dhanmondi International in DHaka.

I was at Maple Leaf - A'Level Science between '89 - 91'

The only reason I say this is because in 3 more years I will be playing for BD and hence I am answering your question from before hand.

BTW, I thought you could play for Nirman only if you were a 8,9,10th grader ?

I've seen some 7th graders, but never a 6th grader. Unless ofcourse this person consistantly failed at school.

That might not be the case here though.

i've seen 5th graders, and they were not failures.

i dont think they cared abt the grades. Aftab's big brother arif was a good player as he was one of our top batsman. So it was easy for aftab to get into the team at such young age.

As players or students ?

Grades - no, but failing a whole class twice in a row such that you become big brother in the same class.

But I'm talking about the Nirman in the 80s, so rules may have changed.

English medium schools have folks in their 5th grade with an age of 15 + -----> folks who make that late and painful transition from Bangla ---> English medium.

I dont know what r u talking about Pundit but when i played in late 90s,,i have seen kids from 5th or 6th grade playing nirman and yes! i'm talking about bengali medium and really young and talented kids who never failed.

Aftab actually transferred to our school as a 6th grader and his brother was in either 9th or 10th grade.
