Default Abdur Razzk, so far in ODI, is a world class bowler

Just now I've gone through cricinfo ODI Bowling Records database. After that I have the proud courage to opine that he is a genuine world class bowler for Bangladesh in ODI so far as he is not yet in the test team so far. I found him in the lists of All-time Career Best Bowling Averagees, All-time Career Best Bowling Economy Rates & All-time Career Best Bowling Strike Rates. As I know by virtue of having a small knowledge on cricket that the lower these three rates the better the bowler. He is in a very early stage of his career and imazine how far he can go at the end of his career. I'm really very proud of him. Now, look at these three lists of all time.

Then he averages 35.0. Not really bad for a SLA in ODI, but he didn't play many matches either.

even more, deduct those matches that he played with a flawed action.

he has everything to prove, and nothing has been proven

Razzak is good ... no doubt about it. With the success he got this year, lets hope he builds up some confidence to bowl tight against the better teams.

So sad he failed to get 5 wickets today .... he is the 3rd highest wicket getter for 2006 anyway.

All this talk about flawed action etc. sound to me like the WMD Iraq had before the war :p:p ... How come only the good Sub Continent bowlers have flawed action and Australian or English bowlers with identical or even more flawed actions never get called??

We have seen this in ESPN when specialists analyzed Murali's actions and compared with other spinners .... it was proven that according to the prevailing law .... most spinners had flawed actions.

No doubt he has done wonderfully, given the opportunity. However, he has a long way to go. Please don't jump into conclusion, yet.

Well... I guess the Razzak vs. Rafiq Thread discussed the ins and outs of Razzak's stats and yes.... he still has got lots of things to prove in coming years. He might become our best replacement for Rafiq in time.. but he also has to prove that he has got the fighting attitude that Rafiq has got by-born.

We'll see how he does when players from big teams go after him. How he handles the pressure.

Bird reported for suspect bowling action
Cricinfo staff
December 15, 2006


Umpires have taken notice of Aaron Bird's bowling action © Getty Images

Aaron Bird, the New South Wales fast bowler, has been reported for a dubious bowling action and faces a ban from state cricket unless tests prove his action is legal. Bird will be analysed by the Australian Institute of Sport biomechanics laboratory in Canberra, however he is still eligible to play for his state until the results of the testing are known.

Its hard to consider him as a world class bowler, because its hard to remember a game where he wasn't playing the minnows or he wasn't chucking. However, I think, there is a way around this lack of data. We have seen that Razzaq is bowling better than our old man Rafiq. This is not the same Rafiq as our world class Rafiq who was considered, not too long ago, in the same catagory of Giles and Vettori. Now, we all remember that Rafiq, don't we? How does Razzaq compare to that Rafiq?

Its like I have a score table printed and put on the wall of my cube where bd is second and Australia is 3rd (after the win from the NATWEST series) and I show that to ever one saying look we were on top of Australia at least for a day or two...

I see no problem as long as you don't believe your self that he is truly that good.

Just saying that he hasn't played big teams doesn't take away all his credit. He has proved his talent against the minnows, now is time to try the big guys. If the big guys fail, then Razzak can shut a few people's mouth. If he fails, then I'll shut my mouth.

Actually, I said he's playing better than the old man Rafiq(the current Rafiq). I am asking if he is playing better than the old Rafiq (when he was younger and considered world class).

Well then Good Luck!!! Now you are talking about comparing two players performace based on two different time-frame. In my opinion it will always be vague and suject to individual interpretetion and liking. Its like trying to compare like is Boycott is better or Gavasker is better during their best.

Right. I am looking for subjective opinions from people who understand cricket well.

Razzzak is the first BD player to be in LG ICC Best-Ever ODI Bowling Ratings. Currently his ratings is 99.

Positive side is so far he is among the best in the world. And negetive side is if he fails keep up the standard in future we will not find him in all time list/lists. We only can brand him among the best at the end of his career.

World Class?? We will soon find out wouldn't we? No where to hide now. Remind me after the SL away series. He would be playing in those doctored pitches.

For any bowler to be labeled as world class he must get a minimum of 200 wkts (any form of the game).

u disgust me. u make me sick. i know u dislike abdur razzak, becasue u love rana, but u can't take away what abdur razzak has done. this is a public forum , where we have international visitors visitng all the time, and here u are calling someone from ur own country a chucker. ppl like u don't care what ppl think of bangladesh as long as u get what u want. ppl like u are the biggest traitors. FYI: Abdur razzak played only a very few matches with flawed action. i'm not saying he is a world class bowler. i'm not saying he is the best we've got, but u don't have to make a bangladeshi player look bad infront of international visitors just becasue u love rana.
