Default Dhaka Premiere League 2010-2011

Lets start with club preview published in New Age


MSC start training with
an eye on title

Atif Azam
Defending champions Mohammedan Sporting Club will be eyeing to retain their crown as they start their preparations for the upcoming Dhaka Premier League on Monday.
The Motijheel outfit, who spent more than Tk 2 crore on the players this season, ended their long trophy drought last year and are determined to repeat the act despite losing some of their seasoned campaigners.
Mohammedan had to release at least three star performers – Mohammad Ashraful to CCS, Mahmudullah to Abahani and Aftab Ahmed to Old DOHS – for a pool barrier
All-rounder Marshal Ayub, spinner Saqlain Sajib, pacemen Delwar Hossain and Sajedul Islam left Mohammedan making the job harder for them this season.
But the club must be happy with their replacements as they managed to add some proven players to the side. The biggest addition is of course Sakib al Hasan, the leading one-day all-rounder in the world, who came from arch-rivals Abahani, reportedly for a record fee of Tk 30 lakh.
Mohammedan also prised Nazimuddin and Enamul Hoque Jr from Gazi Tanks, Muktar Ali and Shubhashish Roy from Abahani, Tareq Aziz from Bangladesh Biman, Fariduddin Masud from Kalabagan and Bangladesh Under-19 player Nur Hossain, who played in the first division last season.
Another plus point would be national opener Tamim Iqbal, who was part of their squad last season but played just one game. A fully-fit Timim is ready to compensate the club this time around.
Mohammedan also have had some trouble with their foreign players last season and they are desperate to avoid it this time. Sri Lankan Farveez Maharoof was carrying an injury when he joined the side and by the time he regained his fitness it was time for him to leave.
Once Maharoof left, Mohammedan struggled to find a replacement and finally had to bring in Pakistani Rana Naved-ul Hasan, who was a big flop until the last game against Abahani. Fahim Muntasir, club’s cricket manager, said they are confident to get former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik from the beginning of the season. Muntasir hoped if Shoaib finally comes, he along with Sakib will give them a big advantage over the other sides as they both can bat and bowl.
Former Bangladesh skipper Khaled Mashud is likely to be retained as captain of the team. Manager Muntasir has full confidence in the side that bristles with youth and experience.
‘We have a strong batting line-up and a very good spin attack which is what you need to be successful in the Dhaka league. We have every element here,’ said Muntasir.
He defended the decision of retaining Faisal Hossain at the expense of big names like Mahmudullah, Ashraful and Aftab from the pool quota.
‘We want performance, not names and I think he [Faisal] is one of the best performers in domestic cricket,’ Fahim said.
The crucial spin department will be handled by Sakib, Enamul Haque Jr, Nur Hossain, Fariduddin Masud and Faisal along with Malik, which gives the side a lot of variation.

Tamim Iqbal, Sakib al Hasan, Faisal Hossain, Shamsur Rahman, Nafees Iqbal, Nazimuddin, Khaled Mashud, Enamul Haque Jr, Nur Hossain, Fariduddin Masud, Muktar Ali, Shubhashish Roy, Tareq Aziz, Shahazada Hossain, Emon Ahmed and Khairul Alam.
