Default Mortaza\'s Batting

From what I have read on these boards it seems that Mortaza has some batting ability.

Could you give me some examples of some good batting performances from him because he looked like a complete bunny to me.

Apparently he is a bit of a slogger? Or is he defensive?

Sure he haven't done anything with the bat sofar and looked out matched.

However, just wait couple or more weeks before making your final judgement.

He is not defensive, thats for sure.

Mortaza is a hard hitting one. He got a first class century few months ago in our domestic league. You may see a lot better performence from him in onedays as a batsman.

mortaza is mainly a big hitting lower order batsman. yes, he hit a century in domestic league recently. he also hit 30+ in the Bd win against India and it was a crucial innings. he has also made 40 smth i believe in the test series against the zims. Mashrafee first came into prominence by hitting a whirlwind 17 ball 50 in the U-19 world cup in dhaka. Mashrafee is obviously struggling in the seaming conditions, but i am confident that over time he will be good enough to bat at number 7 for Bangladesh in ODIs.

His highest test scores are : 42, 36*, 32, 30*, 20

All of those at pretty much a run a ball, he has 6 test sixes!!! lol

He made his scores against :

42 - SA, 36* - WI, 31 - SA, 30* - SA, 20 - AUS

I heard oneday pitches are not going to be that grassy, plus weather is warming up. So, we may see hard hitters like Mortaza and Rafique playing lot more effective in NatWest series.

Pietersen's SR is over 100, Flintoffs is in the 90's.

I looked at Masharfe batting, he looks to be a good slogger of spinners.

Thanks for letting us know but i doubt Piterssen played less odi than Mortoza and Flintoff's not passing 96.41 is it ? I would love to see Piterssen having the same strike rate after playing that many odi's what Mortoza played ......

These are one day cricket stats no one will be able to beat, this man should be playing for England.

Ali Brown - Plays for Surrey, look at these stats for 50 over cricket :

Matches : 327
Innings : 316
Not Out : 14
Runs : 9546
Highest Score : 268
Average : 31.60
100s : 16
50s : 44

He has 3 DOUBLE HUNDREDs in 50 over cricket.

The king of all sloggers.

I thought Mashrafe was in good form after his phenomenon run of scores in the domestic league. But he did dissapoint me in England. Maybe the seaming pitches was ther reason but he has more ability than this.

Rob....Mortaza is most effective when he wields the long handle like a typical tail ender. But his technique actually is not too shabby. He displays good footwork and is capable of playing authentic cricket shots too. His batting his definately exciting and its a pity he has failed to show any glimpse of that in the test series.

Don't forget that Mashrafee is only a bowler with a batting average of less than half (10.00) of any average batsman for Bangladesh (20.00), whereas Pietersen is a specialist batsman and Flintoff is a match-winner even if he only bats for the rest of his cricket career. So, there is no comparison among them.

Like Rafique, Mashrafee IS a whole lot better batsman against spinners and so far, we have not seen Mashrafee to hit the ball against a quality seam-attack and be successful.

On the pitches of Bangladesh any batsman with no technqiue can hit a century, but not where seam-bowlers are getting assitance from the pitch outside the sub-continent. Ofcourse, we knew about this already, but what we did not know is that if any of our tail enders could do this consistently on those Bangladeshi pitches - until Mashrafee came along.

In short, Mashrafee is still in the learning stage (very early in the learning stage - even earlier compared to his bowling), so we simply do not know whether Mashrafee has got the technique to be a slogger against pace bowling as well or not.

the thing is, you dont need such a good technique to be a slogging tail ender. you need a good eye, and a decent hand-eye co-ordination.

Yes, Ali Brown is certainly a entertaining cricketer. But what suprises me is that he has an average of 31 odd runs even with 3 double hundred in ODI(Domestic i.e)- where players like Inzamam had over 80 50s and still has an average of nearly 40.
So Ali Brown isn't consistent enough, which is why he didn't get th nod to the England squad.
I would love to see Pietersen's batting. SA will surely miss have his services and there's a lot of talk about this lad. I hope we have another entertainer in ODIs.
But I hope BD wins at least 1 match and quietens the critics!

Bangla Amaar Maa, please stop talking, you are comparing Pieterson to Mortaza in batting? Are you insane? How many ODI centuries, let alone 50's does Mortaza have? This makes as much sense as comparing Pieterson's bowling to Mortaza's.
