2) no.

3) New Zealand and South Africa. I love NZ. the country seems really beautiful and the people as well. I can tell those guys have very good character and they are very humble. I also love their competitive fighting spirit. South Africa for similar reasons as I have always been a big fan of Hashim Amla.

4) I do not know the future. In terms of Potential, I can tell you five names from the U-19 crop: Afif, Saif, Pinak, Towhid Hridoy, that medium pacer guy forgot his name. from the batch that graduated, Nazmul Hossain Shanto needs no new introduction. Mosaddek is a genuine Batsmen that can probably walk into England Lions or Australian A team. He needs to be handled properly. It would be super shameful if he turns out like Nasir Hossain or Tushar Imran. Mohammad Mithun can probably chip in as he i think is peaking right now. Very impressed with Saifuddin's batting. Abu Hasan, Ebadat guys like them needs that A team exposure/ playing against the very very best. Mehedi Miraz as well.

5) My thing is fairness. If you made it to the national team, you deserve your fair chances. Once you have been tried for 5 matches in a row without any form of meaningful contribution. then you should not feel ashamed if you are kicked out. for example: even though Sabbir failed with the bat in the last match his 24 off 12 was a very meaningful contribution in the context of the match. just based on that alone, I think he deserves at least a couple more outings.

6) They should get chances regardless of their age. Again, this is where A team/ academy team can fill in.

7) How many years did it take South Africa to lift a world cup? How many years did it take New Zealand to life a World cup? How about England?

8) If you have 5 foreigners within each team then BPL can be expanded to include 8 teams. otherwise I think BPL is improving in many areas since season 1.

9. That is not in my control. There are a lot of factors: Public interest in the game, revenue etc...Broadcasting World cup 2015 was a huge success. I think they might do it again for World cup 2019.

10. why not both ?

Defendant, you should answer all the questions. The not answer a question with a questions. I hope the judge is taking this into consideration.


Just kidding Rifat bhai. Thank you for answering the questions that u did
