View Full Version : Who is the likely replacement for Pilot?

Who do you think should be our next Pilot? He is going to be very hard to replace!

Here is his profile: http://www.cricinfo.com/db/PLAYERS/BDESH/K/KHALED_MASHUD_25002201/

A wicketkeeper not far from the Kaluwitharana mould, Khaled Mashud is a free-striking batsman whose matchwinning six against Kenya in the final of the 1997 ICC Trophy did much to raise his country's profile. He is also capable of digging in, as shown by his stand of 93 with Aminul Islam in the inaugural Test against India. Although he is good keeper standing up, he drops the odd ball off the seamers. He was saddled with the captaincy, too, when Naimur Rahman was jettisoned after the home defeat by Zimbabwe in November 2001. But he was powerless to halt Bangladesh's woeful run of form, and quit after their humiliation at the 2003 World Cup, but remained a pivotal figure in the side. His finest hour, however, came in St Lucia in June 2004, when his unbeaten second-innings century secured Bangladesh a draw in their first-ever Test in the Caribbean.

Mushfiqur Rahim

Dhiman Ghosh

Rahim seems to have the highest average but he needs much more time. he has only 3 matchs. By the time Pilot retires he might be ready. Currently i think it is Hossain. I never heard of any of these palyers so this is all by stats.

yes, he gonna make the record of keeping 40 overs in an odi and bowling the other 10 overs. i think this guy can really do it. the only problem is, he need a iron made suit so that he does not get injured.

I believe Shahin still has a long way to go. Mushfiqur Rahim and Dhiman Ghosh will most certainly be the only considerations after Pilot's departure. Shahin has started to score some one-digit scores again in the NCL after his dream-run earlier, while Mushfiqur and Dhiman already has international experience.

C'mon guys, why are you putting down Pilot so early. He still has a long way to go and serve a lot for bangladesh. He is capable of continuing his career till the 2011 world cup. Till then, I guess we shall better not think about his replacement at the present, as long as something unexpected happens.

Mushfiqur Rahim.
