Default Rubel appreciation thread

I think this guy does not get enough appreciations as he deserves.
He has been a brilliant ODI bowler for us for many years.
Nowadays he looks even more polished.
We are lucky to have him.
Thank you Rubel.

He is outstanding.

Kayes and Rubel get a lot of hate for some reason. Yes, they have their off days, but at a time when we are trying to build a team, they should always be under consideration.

Yeah rubel has kind of gone under the radar and not got a lot of credit and I know his ODI average isn’t amazing but if you consider the time period he has played and the different stages BD have been in from when he first came into the team to now then he’s actually been a significant positive part of the ODI bowling unit.

Rubel gets flak because his brain goes on vacation during the death overs and, because of this, has cost us couple of tourny finals and series deciders.

Rubel was excellent in the SA series in 2015. His performance dipped when he came back following an injury after that series. He was excellent in this Asia cup specially in the final. I hope he keeps working hard because he would be very useful in the next world cup.

Completely agree on him being an only ODI player. Abu Hider can bat a bit too and is better at the death. Rubel on the other hand can't seem to cope with pressure and whenever batsmen smash him around, he just gives into pressure. Mustafizur, Abu Hider and Abu Jayed for T20 and Mustafizur and Abu Jayed for tests.

It's funny how after the Afghanistan game everyone wanted Nazmul Apu(I am personally a big fan of him) instead of Rubel. with most of the Bangladeshi bowlers being on the slower side and even Fizz is not as fast as he used to be, Rubel's pace and control adds a crucial dimension, variety to Bangladesh bowling attack without which Bangladesh would not go as far as they did in the Asia cup.

I always criticized raw pace but I loved how Rubel has matured over the years to control his bowling and at the same time managed to not reduce his pace... that's the key.

His death bowling is an issue of nerves...

Rubel used to have pace but now he doesn't. Saw both him and Mustafizur putting in deliveries at 133-138. Abu Hider himself can bowl at such pace. Rubel is no more a 140+ bowler.

Appreciation would go up many folds if only he could bowl yorkers at will. His value would be very demanding on these ab-jab leagues which pays big bucks.

He still does bowl at 140+ but might not able to do it in Asia cup due to extreme heat.

He's a good bowler in ODIs if used well. He's mainly in the team due to that pace. He's actually not a bad fielder either. I wish he could improve on his bat a bit. If he can average more than 10 runs an innings, that would be great.

Rubel was terrific in the Asia Cup final. He is one of the main reasons why we stayed in the game for so long and he took the big wicket of Rohit. He turned into an integral part of our bowling for a while and I hope he can continue his good form in the ODIs and translate that into other formats.

He can bowl at 140+ but nowadays his average tends to stay in the 135-138kph range.

At some point, in the match against India Rubel's fastest delivery was shown as 144 kph and average was 138kph.

So can Mustafizur (did so in Nidahas trophy) but Rubel isn't as frequent as he used to be in bowling such deliveries.

I mean rubel is past what is considered the physical peak age for a fast bowler (23-26/27) but of course plenty still bowl over the 140 barrier at his age. Could’ve been the heat, could be that he focused less on pace, could be that he’s lost a bit of that edge. As long as he can bowl well enough I’m not fussed, plenty of pacers evolve as they get older and lose a bit of pace.

I don't think it has anything to do with heat. Rubel deliberately bowled plenty of slower balls as well as knuckle balls. He has been doing it for a while now. He can still bowl at more than 140 if he wants to.

He reduced his run-up after the knee injury.
