Default Player Average: An Overview

Average is probably the most important stat for a batsman. In the long run, it becomes pretty much the identity of a player.

How does our players look in terms of average? I only included our current players, who is not completely out of equation, and has a bit of batting skill. Players such as Shahadat Hossain or Enamul Jr is not included for this reason. Well, there is not too many players in this list, only 20. Lets have a look:

Shakib and Nafis stands out among the rest and no surprise there. They have been playing good. The first person to talk about comes at number 6. Why he is not in the team? There are several things that can be factors beside average such as form and strike rate. Yes, Rajin does have a low strike rate. But are we a team that does not need any player who can play the sheet anchor role? People's answer will vary on that. But he should be, in my opinion, be in the 15 member WC team. Number 10 is another person not in the team. But since Rahim is staying so up on the ladder, I guess no one will complain. Number 11 is, of course, the biggest surprise to me. He seems to be having all the quality to stay in the 15 men squad as a bowler or a batsman. Still, he seems to be no where. How does that happens, I have no idea. Number 12 is a surprise in a different way. He is said to be one of the most talented batsman of our time. How come he is so low in there. However, time to time, he does show what he is made of and make our lives a sheer joy. I guess, we can afford to stick to a player like him in this stage of our cricket. I don't think someone with below 20 average can be called a batsman, but surprisingly, we see a few there who we call batsman, but stays in this here. Well, Tamim has played only 2 games, so he can be excused. But, there is still two other, namely Alok Kapali and Tushar Imran. You call them batsman? One of them is actually playing in the team now. What exactly he is doing in there?

Its about time we really start to think about the 15 member squad for the WC.
