Default New FP Article: The Anchorman (Jeeshan Mirza)

The Anchorman
Jeeshan Mirza

Following the recently concluded test match series with West Indies, most will say same old Bangladesh. Looking at the glass half full one can also say we have made some progress forcing both matches to the 5th day and actually giving the Windies a scare in the first. This little bit of progress can be partly attributed to the ability of some of our batsmen to spend time at the crease and play a long defiant innings. Like Naeem’s century in the first innings, Nasir’s near centuries, and Mahmudullah’s stubborn efforts. What if we had one batsman who could always do this job for us like Dravid used to do for India? Here’s a BC article which discusses why we are need of a consistent number 3 or 4 who can play an anchor man role for the team.

Excellent article.
Just one thing, please change the Mominul Haque picture. It is currently displaying Abul Hasan's pic.

Nasir Hossain: While its Anamul and Mominul who are hogging the hype headlines it is Nasir who is quietly getting the job done. One of Bangladesh's latest finds, Nasir Hossain could very well become another Shakib Al Hasan in terms of importance to the Bangladeshi team. At the raw age of 20, Nasir has shown a lot of maturity and has already had quite a bit of success averaging over 40 in both ODI's and Tests. Nasir plays with so much ease and confidence, it seems like he has been doing it for years. He can change his tempo according to the situation, as we saw in the Asia Cup. Another impressive facet is his ability to keep cool and hold his nerve in difficult situations. He usually doesn't show much fear and is able to spend time on the crease like we saw against West Indies in the recent test series. He can rotate the strike well and can use the long handle if required. If he keeps working on his batting he could be just the guy we have been looking for. However the team management also needs to realize he is a specialist batsman, not an all rounder. They also need to have faith in him and allow him to bat higher up the order so that he no longer only needs to fight with the tail. Or maybe our management is thinking we shouldn't promote him, because who will rescue us from number 7!
Prediction: Bangladesh's 'Mr. Cool' could very well be our solution for number 4. Talent is one thing, ability to execute is another. Nasir has shown both in all three formats of the game. He will give us much needed stability at our top order and is probably our best option for the anchorman role.
Watching Nasir carefully for few days. Yes this guy is improving in all format. He was first included in the team as 12th man for his fielding ability, he used every chances he got to prove himself. I am also hopeful about him.

Good work zeeshan vai.

These two excerpts from the article were worth the read:

1. "Technique alone is not sufficient to help a batsman succeed - concentration, mental toughness and calmness are also critical. This is where Dravid was a master of the game; arguably better than some of his more illustrious peers. He had a phenomenal ability to concentrate, freeze out pressure and play with patience and calmness."

2. "You don't learn how to prepare for innings by just listening to your coach or reading a manual; it's usually by watching other legends doing it day after day. The next generation will say the same about Kohli and co. It's a cycle that will continue to help India produce world-class batsmen."

Overall, a wonderfully well compiled article Jeeshan bhaiya. Got to learn a lot of things from this particular article of yours.

Great job, Jeeshan! While I am not a Dravid fan, there has not been a better test batsman in modern times, IMHO. He did not have Bradman's footwork or reflexes, but his hard work and discipline made him what he was. Unfortunately, we don't have one like him in the team. So, whoever eventually comes out, will have to learn it on his own. Perhaps watching some of Dravid's classic innings will help.

I would add Naeem among the potential candidates. Not sure whether he will emerge as an anchorman, but he has shown the potential in a couple of inning. But, he threw it out in other occasions. It is important to put a value on the wicket in tests.

Thanks all for your kind feedback.

Its frustrating to see no one take up this type of role. Not just Dravid. Mohammad Yousuf, Younis Khan used to do this for Pakistan. Sanga and Mahela do it for Sri Lanka, now Angelo Mathews is doing it. We dont need a destroyer, just someone responsible enough to put in the platform consistently. Not that Anamul, Mominul, Nasir, cant do. Its just the intelligence and maturity that is lacking. Sth Riyad shows over and over again. A reason why Riyad now averages more than Tamim in ODI's.
