Default "বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা এতো সস্তা নয়" - রাজিন্‌ক


উৎপল শুভ্র কিছুদিন আগে প্রথম আলো পত্রিকায় শ্রীলঙ্কা'র সাথে নাফিস ইক্‌বালের গর্ধভ-সুলভ আঊট হওয়া নিয়ে এই কথাটা লিখেছিলেন - "বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা এতো সস্তা নয়"।

কেনিয়ার বিরুদ্ধে ৪র্থ ম্যাচ-পরবর্তি সংবাদ সম্মেলনে রাজিন সালেহ'র কথা শুনে এই কথাটাই আবার মনে পড়লো। হুবহু বলতে পারছিনা, কিন্তু রাজিনের কথাটা ছিলো এরকম - "ম্যাচ শেষে অন্যরা যখন ড্রেসিং-রুমে ফিরতো, তখন মনে হত শুধু শুধু বসে না থেকে এক্‌টু অনুশীলন করি ... সময়টাকে কাজে লাগাই ... যাতে করে যখন সুযোগ পাবো তখন সুযোগটাকে কাজে লাগাতে পারবো।"

সহজ-সরল কথা ... কিন্তু এই কথাটা বলেই রাজিন আমার মন জয় করে ফেলেছে। এই কথা প্রমান করে যে সে বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা পাওয়ার ব্যাপারটাকে যথাযথ সম্মান দেয়।

আশ্‌রাফুল গত কয়েকটা ইনিংসে খারাপ করেছে। তিন বছর আগেও এরকম টানা অনেকগুলো ইনিংসে সে খারাপ করতো। পার্থক্যটা হল যে এখন তার চেহারা, কথা, ভাব-ভঙ্গি এবং খেলার ঢঙ্গে বোঝা যায় যে সেও ভালো করতেই চায়। ওর যে প্রতিভা আছে, সবাই জানে। সাথে যেহেতু চেস্টাও আছে, আরো দশটা ইনংসে ব্যর্থ না হলে, একে দলের বাইরে নেওয়ার কোন রকম কারন দেখিনা (অনেকেই দেখলাম আশ্‌রাফুল কে বাদ দিতে বল্‌ছেন)।

পক্ষান্তরে শ্রীলঙ্কা'র বিরুদ্ধে নাফিস ইক্‌বালের ওই আঊটগুলো দলের প্রতি চরম দায়িত্ব-হীনতা'র প্রমান।

একটা সময় ছিলো (বেশীদিন আগে নয়) যখন সম্মান-জনক পরাজয় ছিলো বাংলাদেশের মূল লক্ষ্য। তখনকার বিচারে জাভেদ ওমরের চেয়ে ভালো খালোয়াড় আর হয় না ... একশ বলে পঁচিশ রান করে দল্‌কে অল-আঊট থেকে বাঁচানোর চেস্টা।

কিন্তু বর্তমানের বাস্তবতা হল বাংলাদেশ দল এখন প্রায়ই জয়ের জন্য খেলছে। এখন আমাদের দরকার সেইসব খেলোয়াড় যারা জানে এবং মানে যে বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা পাওয়া এতো সস্তা নয়।

৪র্থ ম্যাচে আমাদের যে দল খেলেছে, তাদের সবার মধ্যেই এই ভাব্‌টা আমি লক্ষ্য করেছি। শুভেচ্ছা রাজিন্‌কে, শুভেচ্ছা সমগ্র দল্‌কে। এমন্‌কি আমাদের সিলেক্‌টর দেরকেও শুভেচ্ছা ... যদিও মাঝে মাঝে ভাবি যে উনারা গাধা, কিন্তু আসলে আমিই গাধা ... এবং গাধা হয়ে আমি অখুশী না ।

Nice post!!
Hope all the players in BD realize that. A test cap is not given only for experience now a days. Those days are over.

রাজিনকে ধন্যবাদ। ওর থেকে কেউ যদি কিছু শেখে সেটাই হবে দলের জন্য বড় প্রাপ্তী।

I was never a big fan of Rajin. But he changed my heart. The problem with Aftab and Ashraful is, they can't work on singles. Look at Inzamam. He hardly scores boundary but still maintains a good striking rate in ODI. Aftab and Ash think that all the scores should come through boundary. That's their major problem. That mentality changes their shot selection, make them irresponsible. Look at Alok on the 3rd Match. He hardly hit boundary but what a good striking rate he maintained. Our big and permanent boys should learn from Alok and Rajin although they aren't permanent in the team. Rajin's problem is he often tends to go into shell and doesn't play his usual game. Once he gets confidence in the middle, who can stop him.

I'm vary much familiar with this kind of attitude of rajin. to be honest, only two player of new generation has shown this kind of attitude. rajin and rana. that is a big reason why I like them.

রানা'র ব্যাপারে আমি একমত। তবে রাজিনের কথাটা আর ওর ঘুরে দাড়ানোর ধরনটা আমাকে আসলেই খুবই ইমপ্রেস করেছে।

the thing I liked most about his batting is his determination to stay there till the end..... that was very impressive.... he didn't give it up after getting a good start.... thats wat you want from a set batsman.... when they get set, you want them to go and score a big innings....

If someone is so keen to improve then there should be appropriate help available in terms of correcting/improving techniques to play certain pitches/deliveries. I think this is not addressed to that extent. We had Mr Matao for a while but who is now taking care of the needs of our specialist batsmen? Everyone has space to improve. They can either struggle at length to figure their deficiencies or the board could arrange help to overcome them.

I guess you never saw his game much but just assumed that he is boring defensive player, but when you saw last match of him you thoguht he just changed his game,, actually he is the same player who used to play same kind of game last few years.. only thing he plays on the moods of team needs. He always plays same sorts of game but unfortunate enough no to have place in our bd team cause one or two failure of good player like him has gone under scape goat story.. thats all.. if you follow his performance from domestic + firstclass matches he is one of the best performer in bd team and his str.avg is very much fair enough..

How can you compare Rajin with Javed? Please clarify in which cases Rajin has got similarity with Javed? Is not the difference is big between the two batsman?

I am not a big fan of Rajin or Golla either. I am also not against either of them.

But I believe that Rajin is a first class version of Javed Omar, and Javed Omar is an ICC trophy version opener.

By that, what I mean is that THIS IS WHAT TEST MATCH STATUS HAS DONE FOR US - OUR PLAYERS.

When Javed Omar started playing, may be his dream was how to be a better player for Bangladesh comapared to other ICC Associate teams.

But, when Rajin Saleh started playing, or rather, after his initial stages in first class cricket of Bangladesh (I believe he was in our inaugural test match as the 12th man, and then spent around 4 years in domestic cricket and then finally chosen for the national team), his main aim was how to be a better player for Bangladesh compared to other test playing nations, how to be a better player in ODIs (thus, his hard work in fielding), or how to be a better player in Tests (thus, his hard work in shot selection, hard work in judging the singles etc.)

I have watched every single ODI & Test match that Bangladesh played since WC'99. Rajin used to be very unconvincing (like JO) while he played and he seemed almost afraid of losing his place in the team while he played (understandable, but self-defeating). Last time I saw Rajin play admirably was during that 3rd ODI against India.

I do not doubt that Rajin has some potential. My original point was that - many players have potential. But a lot of them do not treat a national team berth with the respect it deserves. That's where Rajin won me over.

Hope it clarifies things for you.

Nice to see so many people are praising Rajin. About a year ago, I remember, when he appointed captain, some guy started a thread about his English speaking abilities(which i thought was to discredit his abilities as a captain). but now it's nice to see we are all supporting him for his proven abilities as a batsman. I hope he stays this way, for this is what he promised to become since the dawn of his career.

I totally agree with what Rajin has said with regard to get picked in the final 11 for the BD team. there should be NO excuses if a player does not perform. Even Ashraful should be put though harsh realities if he fails to perfrom(Faruk's warning was intrumental for Ashraful to get back his form) . I think this kinda strict rules will bring about a better pool of players for our national team.

Sauron, I agree with you. The way Ashraful and Aftab are too agressive, similarly Rajin is sometimes too defensive. He has a tendency of going into shell. At some point he's more boring than JO. His defensiveness gives extra time for bowlers to settle in the middle. But it's true whenever he plays his natural shot he performs. Similar inconsistency like Ash, Aftab although dissimilar /opposite reason.

রাজিনকে আবারো অনেক ধন্যবাদ আর শুভেচ্ছা।

দ্বিতীয় টেস্টের অবস্থা দেখে যা মনে হচ্ছে, আশরাফুল, আফতাব আর বাশার কে দল থেকে কিছুদিনের জন্য বিশ্রাম দিয়ে ঠিক রাজিনের মত নেটে অনুশীলনের সুযোগ দেয়া দরকার। জাভেদ ওমরের কথা এর সাথে যোগ করলাম না, কারন জাভেদকে আর সুযোগ না দিলেই দলের জন্য মঙ্গল।

Absolutely, Rajin has won my heart as well with his consistency, technique, temperament and humility about how he carries his innings. I was initially not favouring him, given his inconsistency in previous tours. But from Kenya match onwards, he has demonstrated what a flawless innings he can play. Hats off to him.
