Default And the award goes to ....

What's your problem?
Star Sport Desk

Some people just don't have the decency to appreciate an emerging cricket nation's gradual rise.

Most of the international media are ignorant of Bangladesh's steady improvement and often criticise the game in this country without doing little ground work. So, it came as no surprise when AFP's C. Rajshekhar Rao, a young Indian reporter wrote a preview of sorts of the first Test between Bangladesh and touring England yesterday displaying his total indifference and lack of knowledge of the present state of cricket here.

Rao started with his favourite line, "even as Bangladesh continue their struggle to justify Test status," and went on to give the mandatory statistics of the home side's 23 defeat's in 24 matches since gaining Test status three years ago.


He claims that Bangladesh only managed to pull off a spirited performance against Pakistan in the Multan Test last month as the hosts were "off-colour."

As if to please his former colonial masters, Rao employs the school-boyish lines; "Bangladesh clearly lack players of class with stylish batsman Habibul Bashar being the lone exception, whereas England have players of both class and experience on the sub-continent."

It's obvious that the Indian journalist is prepared to find fault with anything and everything associated with Bangladesh cricket. In contrast, the large group of the travelling English media have shown that they are prepared to call a spade a spade and have written and reported what they have seen since arriving here, and that is a fast-improving and respectable Test nation who are no push-overs.

Sorry for posting the full article. I did it as it was a short one. Wo was this staff reporter ? I think there are any Bangladeshi cricket fans who would like to shake hands wit this guy.

Habibul Bashar a stylish batsman?

My thoughts exactly. Love Habibul, he is our best batsmen as far as performance and continuity. He has what he others don't.

However, he is not stylish. I'd go for Kapali and judging by others (I haven't seen these guyz) it will be Rajin and Hannan in the current team. Anyways, where the English press is doing their job and our Mr. Rao is doing the research solely by reading/analyzing scorecards and Wisden - specially the ones from last year.


You can't blame the general fans who read this articles and then go after Bangladesh. It's AFPs responsibility that they hire potent, knowledgable reporters.

I can easily write a whole lot of articles without even stepping on the field - doesn't make me a reporter.
