As there is cool breeze blowing over the BD cricket now(sensational victory over India, first ever test and ODI series victroy), we are now very into the current BD cricketers' statistics and their performances. But in this very occassion we shouldn't forget about those former cricketers whose unforgettable devotions to our BD cricket are real note-worthies. Minhazul Abedin Nannu, Gazi Ashraf Lipu, Aminul Islam Bulbul, Akram Khan, Faruq Ahmed, Roqibul Hossain, Athahar Ali Khan, and some others too (can't remember now) are those dedicated players whose contributions are not forgettable. They have been playing since 2 decades and that makes cricket lively even those ups and down years in BD cricket history. In this joyful event shouldn't we praise them for their contributions?

:up:Sure We should. Actually most of us did , still do and continue to do so as long as some of their die-hard fans stop dreaming about their comeback in national team. Only then the controversy starts....

interesting thing is none of our old good players were bowlers, infact i cant recall a single quality spinner(or pacer) from bangladesh, the best we got so far i guess is rafiq and now enamul if he can keep the promise.

yeah "couger" they laid the foundation indeed but its the duty for our boys to continue their consistency.

Their 'consistency'? I don't know what you mean. We had good players in the past, one or two of them probably would still be good in the international circuit but 'Consistency' has always been a problem for all of those palyers.

If by 'consistency' you mean the BD should improve consistantly, then I beleive it is happening. Slowly, but it IS happening.

Daulat Khan was pacer from bangladesh, in 7o's,anybody even remembers his name?

vindeshi
February 18, 2005, 09:30 PM
Consistency here is the overall performances showed in the recent series against Zimbabwe. Basically openers as well as the middle orders got runs and also bowlers like masrafe, enamul, tapash, rana and last but not the least rafique took consistent wickets. I just want to mean these consistencies shouldn't be lost in the forthcoming series.

I just wonder when Akram Khan and Aminul Islam Bulbul will come ahead and do some administrative job for Bangladesh Cricket Board.

Atahar & Faruque are national selectors, Atahar is a commentator now, and Gazi Ashraful Lipu was a manager for the BD national team in the past (so he has done his job as a former cricketer).

I think Jahangir Shah Badshah is doing some work for the BCB now, Golam Nowsher Prince is the 3rd member of our current selection committee, Raquibul Hasan is doing something; well majority of our former players are currently working for the BCB one way or another except for Minhazul Abedin, Akram Khan and Aminul Islam.

vindeshi
February 19, 2005, 09:13 AM
Well Minhazul Abedin just recently retired from first class cricket. But I hope he will involved in cricket soon. Akram Khan is now playing as the captain of Chittagong in NL and also played for OLD DOHS recently where he made them champion. Aminul Islam is migrated to Australia and is playing for minor country cricket, at the same time he is taking coaching lessons too. So I think all of them are still involved and hope still they have lots to give to our cricket.

During pre test era, I think Prince was the best pacer.

vindeshi
February 19, 2005, 09:59 AM
Wasn't Prince a left arm medium fast bowler? Do anyone remember another left arm fast bowler named Anis. He sparked once against a foreign team (England A, if I'm not mistaken), but later disappered from cricket.

Not really .. now Anis plays for Barishal and Biman!

Anis was horrible. Probhakor marka runup and jump, and all sho-sha, and then the ball bounces like six inches from the ground. I don't think his balls even carried to the wicketkeeper. I don't know how he got wickets. He is a quality pacer, if we consider Khaled Mahmud Shujan a quality slow bowler. They both seem to take wickets out of batsman's lapse of concentration/pity.

His prime time was 95. I remember his bowling during that SAARC cricket(95) tournament.

I do remember Daulat. He was very fast in his first over then just wither away. By his fourth over he would be exhausted. Looked kinda like Merv Hughs.

I remember another spinner Omar Khaled (Rumi). Pretty useful with the bat as well. He was a leg spinner, I think.

There was another spinner. I only remember his nick name, Lintu (or Mintu or something like that), Physics major at Dhaka University.

Hai guys remember the SARC, 95 i think, tournament. That was a great one. Bangladesh were the runnerup in that. India was the champion. Those were the Akram and Bulbul days...

vindeshi
February 19, 2005, 02:26 PM
Yeah agreed, he doesn't have that consistency in line & length. Don't u guys feel that we are lacking quality left handed batsman. If so who are performing well in this NL now (left handed bataman)

Ram Chand Goala was a leggie(if my memory doesnt betray me much) from mymensingh playing in Dhaka league during mid 80's. I first saw him play for Lalmatia club in Dhanmandi cricket field. Goala then played for Abahoni (or Biman?) for at least a couple of seasons.

Anis had a chance to run out (stoped bowling when he say the runner was out of the crease but he just warned him instead of running out which was also the last wkt) in the last ball against pak A in that saarc tournament but he didn't and ramiz raza scored the needed run in the last ball of his, even though he couldn't touch the ball. Pilot was standing too much far from the wkt... anyway after that ball ramiz and his partner was running toward the pavellion and the runner exchanged some words with anis while he went to kick his butt but akram cooled every thing down... after wards he (akram) lied on the grass when suddenly understood that bd could have beaten a test A team. In that tournamnet BD actually beat inda A team in the league along with SRI A and went to final on vertue of better run rate.

There is one noteable thing that our BD team consists of mainly youngsters which is really good prospect in future. Also the rising stars from NL like Golam Rahman, Mehrab Hossain (Jnr), Wascoroni, Nazimuddin, and from A team Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Rajib are only 17-18 yrs of age. Who knows later they will gain so experiences in upcoming years that make BD team into a higher ranking team among the 10 test playing nations

Should you guys think that BCB should give Nannu to be one of their selector position cos he already retire from every kind of cricket.

I don't know if anyone in this thread even knows about a cricketer called Manna. I've watched Biman since 92 season and in 95-96 season Manna was in the team. He was frequently getting injured but to me he seemed like the national team calibre player. He was dark, hugely built- which might have brought about his numerous injuries. I in fact was friends with him and spoke to him about cricket and stuff.
He played for Brothers Union, i think also, but came to Biman from Eskaton Sabuj Sangha.
He had a touch of Windies attitude in him. Apparently later on I discovered that he was not polite with the officials of the team.
Does anybody know his full name?

chyicarus
February 21, 2005, 07:48 PM
We also have a couple of players who've been highly underrated and have not represented BD in any national level.
Halim Shah- very consistent performer
Hassanuzzaman(jhoru bhai)- amazing talent

Mahir
February 21, 2005, 08:17 PM
I think Parvez Ahmed could be added to that list as well... does Anisur Rahman (the lefty pacer) still play cricket ?

vindeshi
February 21, 2005, 08:17 PM
No man I haven't heard about Manna, but its quite unfortunate for him not to make spot in the national team for his attitude problem. But about Halim Shah yeah I have been noticing him quite for a while. There's no doubt about his talent but as some of the present selectors labelled him as a very slow run maker. And he is a opener too, so as we have already quite few good openers already in our national team(Nafees Iqbal, Javed Omar, Rajin Saleh, Hannan Sarkar) I dont think that he can make through now. Hasanuzzuman has a pretty good performance (30 avg with bat and have taken 22 wickets in 36 matches) so yeah selectors can put their interests on him.

chyicarus
February 21, 2005, 08:31 PM
Jhoru Bhai(Hassanuzzaman) - has been an amazing talent since i've been following him from 97, the only problem is that Biman has many all-rounders as a result he doesn't get much opportunity. He's been playing much longer than his stats would reveal. His average is so low mainly becoz he oftens bats at no.6 no.7 and even no,8.
Usually he's down the batting order and comes out to bat in the slog over and even at that position he's won the team many matches. His bowling isn't as potent- but can be call a useful allrounder.
Halim Shah- bats in the middle order, played for Brother Union. Another friend of mine- used to discuss cricket with him in the boundary line in Abahani field. He's been very consistent in the last 3-4 years, but obviously the selectors are going for young blood. He's pretty old! He bats around no.4-no.6 position.

Hey what happened about Bikash Ranjan Das. This guy only played 1 test, and I guess he's not palying this NL too.
