Grading the players after the SLan test series (2017)
This is totally mine. Make your own and post it if you don't like it.
In the past, mostly I have criticized the teams, captains, coaches, mgmts, fans only for the love of the game. Knowing we could have done better. That being said...
Captain Mushfiq: Whatever the short comings are, you have led us to a series draw at a hostile environment after losing the tosses. Your 2nd innings 6th wicket stand with Shakib of 92 was crucial for this match. 5 dismissals and remaining notout over shadows all the faults. 193 runs with an average of 64 only second to Chandimal. Congratulations. A.
VC Tamim: Player of the match award says it all. That 49 lbw had a good ending I must say. 200+ runs in 4 innings. He is our Warner. He sets the tone. A
Shakib Al Hasan: A. Player of the series. Determination. Loved you for a thousand years; will love you for a thousand more.
Sarkar: He came, he saw, he took it to them. Future is bright. What a fielder!! A
Fizzzzzzzzzzzzzz: Stay healthy, serve the nation. We are already in debt to you. A.
Mizzzzzzzzzzzz: Future captain. 10 wickets @35 average and 31 average with the bat. A
Mosaddek: (Sohel bhai, ore dak nam ki? - miss you man) Be patient and good things happen to those who remain patient. A
Taijul: Under rated dark horse. A
Liton: Showed us what we were missing. Pray get well soon. A
Roy: Celebrate as there is no tomorrow. Well done. A.
Sabbir: Up / down the order, doesn't matter; 40 per innings. Not bad. Fielding outstanding. A
Imrul: In / Out. New role and everything. Duck and everything. A. (this is reward you deserved for NZ series. Bhulini amra)
Taskin: Unlucky with so many catches dropped. Focus on the next assignment. A.
Mahmudullah/Mominul: Part of the team. Behind the closed doors your encouragements count. A.
