One or two good innings is not a large sample size... Let's see how he does in the year and then it can be answered

There you go ! another premature thread. You don't need to project him that high at this time. Let him get settled first.

it's only one series & it's against Zim in good pace bowling conditions compared to the conditions in sub continent.
So I say it's too early but he has showed all signs of becoming a very good bowler.
What is more assuring is that we saw him improving from ordinary to extra ordinary in this series.

Needs to play more Tests before we can comment. 6 Tests isn't enough. Your thread title should say Tests. In ODIs it's Mashrafe.

you have to take into account the strength of the opposition and the conditions before making judgment, Robiul did well but that doesn't make him the best ever in tests for BD,

Mashrafee is the one. But, Robi isn't that far. We need to see more of him in different conditions. I saw Robi at the Lord's when he was a bit more raw but in between he sent down some unplayable balls, too.

Wish him all the best. Certainly, he is very quick to LEARN from his experience.

The Test series hasn't even concluded and we reached to a new premature conclusion.

perhaps this has been the best performance by a pacer in a particular series.

Let him do it consistently for 4-5 matches first, then come back to this thread.

what is more challenging is for him to stay fit.
Let's all pray he & all others stay out of injury, once injured he might not be the same Robiul as now.

Poor Bengali fans !!!, it's too early to say. After some days someone may open a poll with this title " Is Robiul Islam the Worst ever pace bowler produced in Bangladesh?"

Shanto was ok not devilish. You have to consider the quality of the players in that era he was playing in and the international opponents. Even I played 2nd division cricket at that time....so I can vouch it was rather easier back then and considerably tougher now.
His action, however, was superb and helped him generate fair bit of pace but was still considerably slower for the international standard.

He has displayed exemplary control and consistency and on top of that the gigantic spells he is bowling innings after innings is just surreal. Let's see how he does against NZ.
