The whole thing with Shahadat is a bunch of bull. When a player is young, he needs to be kept in the right frame of things. JO, Rajin, Tapash - they know their roles on the squad in this tournament, and although they would love to get into a game, they will not be crushed. Shahadat, on the other hand, cannot figure out why he is the No. 4 pacer on this team, behind both Rassel and Tapash.

All week I've discussed this in Trini with fans and journos, et al but people keep saying he did not bowl well in Zimbabwe, doesn't have control, etc. Big friggin deal. I even asked Shahadat himself at the one encounter I had with him - as expected, he didn't want to speculate about whether he would get a game or not. So we saw him in the nets and warming up over lunch on the field - so far his contribution to the world cup is to carry water bottles and towels in during breaks. What a waste.

I can see not tinkering with the team, but the lack of any pacer rotation when you have the easiest matchup in the tournament - Bermuda - shows no faith in the bowler. They should have left him at home and brought Pilot instead.

So, we can now label Shahadat as minow killer + practice bowler. Good that our batsman pratices his pace (together with Mashrafi's) in the nets.
Subhanallah! Al-Hamdulillah!! AllahuAkbar!!!
