Default An interview with Mohammad Rafique, the legend of Bangladesh Cricket

I have just finished an interview with Mohammad Rafique in which he discussed about his retirement, fond memories with Bangladesh team, his thoughts about Bangladesh cricket, future plan and some untold stories which should be made public.

It was an excellent discussion and I am very much impressed to see the depth of his cricket knowledge and simplicity in explaining different things.

I will publish the interview only after his official retirement from Test cricket (after the second Test against South Africa).

This will be a simple token of respect to the greatest cricketer Bangladesh have produced till date.

A salute to the legend.

Great going, Miraz ...

Looking forward to the interview. That said, I hope you don't get to publish it before at least 12 more months from now. I think he has more test cricket left in him.

I contacted him over telephone.

It's not the question of authority as a BC staff, it's more of a kind of personal connection/realtion than anything else.

Unless BCB takes some unprecedented steps, which is highly unlikely, Rafique is retiring from international cricket after the second Test.

I wasn't certain that he will agree to give the interview and that's why I didn't make any announcement.

Apologies to BC members.

I will try to talk with him again with the questions of the BC members in near future.

It will be in English as we have international visitors. This is a very important interview and I do not want to limit it to Bangladeshis only.

Interestingly his Bangla is quite decent. Hardly found any khati Dhakaiya accent.

First, Thank you Miraz bhai for your relentless effort.
Second, by any chance did you record that conversation? Only if you did:

after publishing the English version, if you could may be 1) type it up in Bangla or 2) send a copy of the transcript to any BC bangla specialists. Nasif, Arnab, Shafin, BD-Shardul all can type word for word the questions and answers. I am sure they wouldn't mind and would be honored. That would great to have in the archives (10 years from now). Bhasha Andolen'er month tai... Otherwise, no problem at all, English will be fine.

"মিরাজ ভাই, মিরাজ ভাই, রাস্ট্র ভাষা বাংলায় চাই।''

কেবল রাস্ট্র ভাষা বাংলা হলেই হবে না, তার চর্চা হতে হবে। বিদেশীরা বাংলা শিখে, তারপর বাংলায় স্বাক্ষাতকার পড়বে। বিদেশী সাম্রাজ্যবাদী শক্তির বিরুদ্ধে আন্দোলন গড়ে তোলার শপথ আমাদের নিতে হবে এই ভাষা আন্দোলনের মাসেই। তাই আবার বলছি -

"মিরাজ ভাই, মিরাজ ভাই, রাস্ট্র ভাষা বাংলায় চাই।''

আমাদের দাবি, আমাদের দাবি, মানতে হবে, মানতে হবে;
নইলে, জ়্বলবে আগুন ঘরে ঘরে ( থুক্কু, পড়ুন সার্ভারে (BC সার্ভার))।

ঠিক আছে জনতার দাবী মেনে নিচ্ছি। ইংরেজী এবং বাংলা উভয় ভাষাতেই ইন্টারভিউটি প্রকাশিত হবে ।
