Default "He will be the Golden Boy of BD Cricket", says Siddons

"He will be the Golden Boy of Bangladesh Cricket".
This is what Jamie Siddons thinks about one of our national team player.
Guess who that player is!!
According to Siddons, the "Golden Boy" is our wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim.

Mushfiqur Rahim’s performance behind the stumps improved a lot. But considering his performance with bat throughout the series in New Zealand, I found this observation quite interesting. He must be doing really well in the nets. Also with this “Golden Boy” stump, the possibility of Khaled Masud Pilot’s comeback does not look bright at all.

it's interesting how siddons is going about things. first he says junaid is something special, now he says rahim will be the golden boy. if these players don't come through for him he's going to look a little bit foolish. atm it's tough to know where siddons is coming from because we don't have much of an idea of how much he knows about players outside of the national team. if he knows very little then once he gets to know a few more players he might rethink his opinions, if he knows a fair amount then i guess he's already starting to pick who he wants in his long term team. in either case it's up to him to guide these players into becoming a good unit at the international level.

i think he sees what i see in rahim: a technically sound player mature well beyond, not only his years, but those of his teammates as well.

and his keeping was good too. IMO, his keeping needs to improve when he stands up to the stumps.

he is still young and he will improve but how fast is the question.

have to agree that he's made a couple of pretty bold statements though, more power to him if he's correct though.

Well I'm not quite sure what he sees in him...I really don't see anything special at all.

imo there's too much talent in BD for siddons to already know who's going to be the golden boy after just a couple of months. he would have mainly only seen the players selected for this NZ tour. there is a lot of other talent out there that he might not have seen at all or hasn't seen enough of to really gauge their talent.

Not to take anything away from our Mushy, I think Coach Siddons will find quite at least half a dozen "golden boys of Bangladeshi cricket" as he becomes more familiar with our players. If raw talent, temperament, and the ability to learn and apply fundamental technique are the 3 things that may one think of such accolades, I can't wait until he has a good look at Imrul Kayes.

If he's looking for just raw talent, we have plenty more where Mushy came from ...

Yeah he is the golden "blue eyed" " Boy" indeed.. Gold is good and pricey these days,, but I guess Siddons doesnt know that we have some "Platinum and Titanium" boys outside the squad...

Talent my foot!! Here is the Golden Boy of BD.

30.1 Vettori to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, on the leg stump, Rahim moves across and misses the line and is cleaned up.

He is technically most sound batsman after our Ash. I had no clue why he is batting so low in test cricket. He should bat up in the order. He has a good head which is very rare for a BD cricketer.

The thing with Siddons is, he has good eyes, very keen eyes to spot who has it in them and who doesn't. I am not surprised one bit why he rates him so highly. Remember 2004 England trip. He was just 16 and played a superb innings in one of the warm up games. That created quite a buzz in the English media and he was given a debut at Lord's at that age. I think he scored 18 or something, but it was of high class. What followed was a subpar series against SL at home when he batted at no.6 as a specialist bat. He was dropped after that ( yet another premature debut and subsequent drop ) until WC. His last significant innings was against SL last year when he scored a tremendous 80. I am not sure how many BD player, besides Ash, can play that confidently against Murali. So, his quality is obviously there and Siddons, a keen evaluator, didn't miss it. Now, his ODI batting hasn't been too well, and lot of us are judging him based on his string of bad runs in ODI's. But, his true quality, in my mind, lies with his batting in the extended version of the game, and a lot higher than no.7. He will come good. He is only 18-19! What he had going against him was his subpar keeping. But, he has been improving and that is a good sign.

Can you explain what do you mean by technically sound? What does that mean? Are you saying that he is "technically" better than Aftab/Sakib/Bashar/Junaed/Tusher/Alok.. Do you really think he is that good despite his poor show at NCL? I mean we hear all these things about technically sound and better,, but how come a technically sound batsman score 0, 0, 4, 4, 0s like scores by hitting wrong lines or lack of footwork? I dont know man,, I dont buy this technically sound thing anymore, cause Alok/Rokon claimed to be the technical talents and look what happened to them..

I have a pretty good idea about what Siddons looks for in a player. Now is the time to push the case for Kapali once again. A few sessions with Kaps will convince JS, and the way he is, it will be hard to ignore his demands. I know, this comment will give bum rash to a lot people, but, it is time once again.

I think Siddons should say 'Mushi' has the potential to be something special. I guess most of the forum members here will do better than the way the was bowled by vettori...ha ha ha (just a joke).
My point is, watever Siddons saying is based on the qualities he found so far. its nothing related comparing 'x' with 'y'. He doesnt have to call some1 golden boy and had to find Rahim just because there was no other option.

He has trined the top level players, so impressing him is not very easy. As far i remember, rahim scored a couple of centuries during the tour in England and even the local media started calling him 'wonder boy'. However, we know how often our golden boys dont take time to prove "ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD".

I remember what sunil Gavasker said about Ash.. "talent without temperament is nothing...simply nothig"
Anyways, lets hope siddons had made the right prediction.. finger crossed
