Default Analyzing Shahriar Nafees Ahmed

If Shahriar Nafees Ahmed succeeds in putting all our speculations aside and manages to earn the opening position for BD in any of the two test matches, a great deal of focus will be pointed at him without a doubt. A highly potential opener, and a perfect piece to form a quality opening tandem along with Nafis Iqbal, the rare case of a righty-lefty combination for BD.

As Richard McInnes pointed, this highly talented batsman is by far the best potential captain of BD national team in the future. How would you analyze Shahriar Nafees Ahmed ? What attributes belong to this youngster in terms of batting, fielding, temperament, etc ?

i just got this feeling that we'll see him in. for the 2nd test. at the first test the team will go with the usual openers JO and nafis iqbal. and JO will most likey fail. and the selectors will think, what the heck, abir can't do any worse, lets give it a shot.

i don't know how good is he against swing. if he is good, and can make some impact, BCB will give JO an umbrella and an watch.

We need lefties in our squad no doubt. Lefties make a huge impact in the batting line-up no doubt. It is also nice to see lefties batting, they have a flare and grace about them.

I feel this is too early for him to play test cricket. I hope we don't need him in this tour. He should spend some time with the team as the 3rd choice opener. He is a great talent ... He should play more first class matches before test debut. So far he played only 3 first class matches.

Some said that he is better than other nafis (Nafis Iqbal).
Can he show that in the practice matches?
BTW, do you any other emerging batsman from this NCL?

agree with SFBD, but in case he can adjust accordingly with the Test arena, there shouldnt be any problem in him playing Tests this early in his career. Even a failure (if he plays the Tests) wouldnt be a huge concern for him or his well-wishers, IF his temperament and composure is mature enough to guide him through this early phase.

Can anyone shed any light on the fielding abilities of this young man ? Is he acrobatic ? Does he have any particular region where he excels i.e slips ? point ? covers ?

Read the news of Press briefing it says there clearly , if they can't play in this series we will give them a chance in future . Also Javed Omar is a great defensive player for openning and BD team just found the rythm in openning against Zimbabwe with record breaking partnership so , ya think now they will try to break it to a player in debut that's totally out of question .

Shahriar Nafees doesn't have any first class 100 on the otherhand Javed Omar got it against Pakistan . So , ya think who is better ....In the long tour like this they gotta take one spare openner and a wicketkeeper caz of the injuries . Looks like that's why he has been taken for .

But i am surprised "Talha Jubaer" said he can get "Andrew Stauruss" i have to tell Talha that's a good way to join up best 11 . He got 56+ avg and also played even less tests than any of our players ...... So , Talha shouldn't have any comments on the player like this according to his stats ....

bangla amar maa, how many accounts have you opened so far in this forum ?

anyways... your views are both wayward and awkward. We always appreciate constructive thoughts, maybe your posts will have a bit improved quality from here on... or somethings just never change, i guess!

As myself:

not to take sides, but MB, BaM's last post, while written in jogakhichuri english, makes sense to me:

H'es asserting that JO's 1st class stats make him the most likely opener while SN is an understudy.

Likewise he's telling TJ to pipe down cuz the stats don't back him up.

It is obvious BaM expresses himself - as you put it so well - awkwardly, but cut him some slack.

As Moderator:

Folks, please don't worry about who's got what accounts and what not. Rest assured, as mods, we keep track of these things and will take action as needed. We would prefer not to be draconian, that's all ...

As far as what i read in Whatmore's comments. Rajib and Shahriar will get chances of playing in the Test XI, Mushfiq is the only player who might not get much chance to qualify for the playing XI; so i think we will see Shariar playing both the warm-up matches and if he can show a good head he might be taken in for the Test XI.

Quoting from DailyStar.net- 6th May Edition:

In the article "His Toughest Test"- near the bottom

"The wicketkeeper is potentially a very good player but I see him more as an understudy. The other two, the left-handed opener and the fast bowler, will be given opportunities to really give the selectors a difficult but nice problem to make their debut in England."-

I said thats what i understand from his statement, i did not however confirm that they will both be selected in the XI.

Hope that explains your query!

thank you very much chyicarus for the information. yeah its really tough to tell who is going to be playing in the first tests. the new comers really have to do something extra ordinary to get into the team.

well, we have discussed it to death as to who's will get a chance to play in the tests who will not... but all I tried to get across throught this thread is an analysis on Shahriar Nafees himself, and NOT on what are his chances of playing in the first XI...

anyways, havent got any response from anyone regarding my earlier question : the fielding abilities of this young man... Is he acrobatic ? Does he have any particular region where he excels i.e slips ? point ? covers ?

well, we do have a few positional players in this team... for example, Rana is a slip specialist, as far as i know... rajin are usually in the covers, kapali the yuvraj of bangladesh, hence he used to field at point/gully...etc etc

what i meant is, Rana is SUPPOSED to be a slip specialist. Dropping catches is a whole different thing.

well thats the thing. if someone is not able to do is duty rite there there is no point of telling that he is a specialist. that probably means that we need a change in that position. and anyway he is not in the team. and even kapali is also not in the team. that is why i like about kapali. while fielding he is just stands our from other fielders in the team. because he is just very sharp and quick. even rajin ash and mashrafee are though.
