Sadly Rubel has gotten worse and pretty much falls in the Shahadat, Abul category now. No discipline, no accuracy just runs and tries to bowl fast without thinking.

Again BCB's selection criteria seems to be pace, ability to generate bounce. They prioritize this over sound basics, and intelligence. No point comparing to Malinga, but even when he started Malinga was very shrewd and cunning. He could read the batsman and knew what to bowl, where to bowl. Rubel and co are pretty much clueless. And in the 3 overs we saw, seems like he hasnt learned anything from the 1st match.
