Default BD players will meet Rahul Dravid

Bhorer Kagoj reported this.
Prince arranged a session with Dravid - probably tomorrow.
Now our players are thinking what they should ask to the world's no. 1 batsman.

Very funny questions though.
But really like to know what were their questions.

Good initiative! Dravid is one of the best players of the game today and I am sure he will retire a great in his own right. He is also very articulate and sensible. It should do our bruised players some good.

It depends on the willingness to learn. Irfan Pathan benefitted immensely from normal chit chat with Wasim Akram.

Maybe we can develop more Dravids and Rajin can utilise this time immensly so he can be dependent should the time come, which is currently looking at our batting performances in all the matches we have played soo far.

i'm glad that we are not pathans. here is a joke about pathans, u might not find irrelavant:

once a pathan was assigned to guard a house. one day, he caught a thief. interestingly, the thief was also a pathan. he tied his hands really good and went to call for the master. when the master asked him where did he tied the thief, pathan said he only tied his hands with each other. the master got angry since he did not tied the thief's leg and he can easily walk out. disappointed, master came to visit the crime scene. to his utter surprise, the thief was standing there with his hands tied.



not only the guard did not realize that with free legs he can walk out, the theif, also being another pathan, did not realize that either.

Zoysa had a chat with McGrath and it helped his bowling immensely.

News about Dravid's meeting with BD players. This news also mentions that BD players on their own never try to seek the help of foreign players. Steve Waugh and Lara went out of their way to BD players but the BD players appear too diffident to seek them out.


Dravid discusses basics of cricket with BD players

The interesting thing was the Bangladesh team management for some inexplicable reasons decided to keep the bowlers like Khaled Mahmud, Tapash Baisya, Tareq Aziz, Muhammad Rafique, Abdul Razzak out of the discussion session.
I have a story to share, not relating to cricket, but I think it is relevant.

While students in a class room in the bengali medium schools should be encouraged to speak with their teacher, however as the number of students are too many, so it may not be possible for all the students to just reply to what the teacher says. So after 12 years of SSC and HSC level school and college, most students are shy or remain shy enough to just 'ask' the teachers if they have any questions.

What we have got here, among these 9 players, I am guessing that all our batsman are too shy to speak - at least in English anyway.

Ofcourse, there are some class captains/some students in every class who do speak out, but they are too few relative to the total number of students.

And it seems that Khaled Mahmud is just one example of such a class captain.

By the way, this meeting was held before Bangladesh's 2nd stage game against Pakistan, so we know what was the result (or no-result) from this discussion.

Some of the BD players are so hopeless that 1000s of Dravid could change anything..really sad.

They may need to learn english first, as newspaper said.
By the way, what about the academic qualification of our squad?
Any body has any idea?
