Thanks for the info Miraz. Good move from BCB.


Rubel Hossain, Shubhashish Roy and Suman Saha bowl just as quickly as MaMu and Rajib, sometimes even quicker. Then there's Zia who's improving all the time.

Rubel can reverse the ball like I haven't seen in other Bangladeshi seamers, Roy can bring it back in at pace, and Suman generates bounce and movement off the seam.

I think the Academy can do wonders for these guys, including now-less-pacy guys like Talha, especially on seamer-friendly pitches I expect they'd build ...
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
