Rana has been an a wonderful boy. Unlike most of the players who has access in national team camp, he was very much sober and gentle. Used to give salam whenever we met. He has been a devoted muslim and used to pray regularly 5 times a day. He used to give all his earning to his father. It was a pleasure to have such a wonderful younger brother.

Whenever i talk with Mazhar and his other family members, i feel what type of a vacuum is created in their family after the accident!!!

Those who prays regularly please pray specially for Rana tomorrow after your regular prayer. Those who don't pray regularly please try to pray for the wonderful boy at least tomorrow.
wow!!! that's so sad. ...........

Bengal Tigers Fan Club is organizing a Dowa Mahfil at Bongobondu Stadium today.

National cricketers and Rana & Setu's relatives are going to be there with few other guests.

May they both rest in peace...

One performance of Rana's thats will always stay in my memory was the tour to the West Indies in 2004 in the 1st ODI where he produced that magical spell of bowling taking 3 wickets for 20 odd runs defending a very low score resulting in Bangladesh just a whisker away from an unlikely victory.
His efforts and true courage he showed in that game reflects his career and he proved to be a true tiger.
Jamie Siddons is at slip, and decided enough is enough. He yells out. "For christ sake, it's not a 'f*ckin test match."
Waugh replies: " Of course it isn't … You're here. "

Mohammad Isam remembers Rana.

Missing the caring Rana
Mohammad Isam

As an all-rounder, Manzarul Islam Rana had the rare ability to win matches for be it the national side, a club or his divisional team. Being the match-winner is the ultimate tag for a cricketer but Rana's speciality was not just his abilities as a left-arm spinner, useful batsman, agile fielder or a good strategist but his humane sides beyond the game that made him stand apart.

We all get sad when we see that a caring soul like him is not around with us any more. It's a void that always haunt us when great souls die and we remember them not just as a performer.

Being a left-arm spinner this reporter has always idolised the soft-spoken man from Khulna and it is still fresh in my memory about his strong recollection of events.

"You got me twice in two seasons, didn't you?" he asked me after I had trapped him leg-before during a Corporate League match in Fatullah. As I struggled to find good areas to bowl at my first division side's nets a few months later, he would ask me to bowl slower and that I should always work on finishing my follow-through.

Just two days before his death, he wanted to take me and a few other teammates for a walk around the lake to calm us down after our fifth successive loss but later we decided to have tea outside the Dhanmondi ground ...

"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)

You will always be in our heart, Rana & Setu.

Alas! We are an oblivious nation. Lets see if BCB takes any substantial initiative to remember these two heros.

On this sad day I am fasting to show my respect for my dear Rana.
Rana is my superhero and I will always remember him.
His hard work and dedication is a great motivation in my life.
Sleep right Rana, one day I will join you.

রানার প্রথম মৃত্যুবার্ষিকীতে আবাহনীর টোয়েন্টি টোয়েন্টি শিরোপা

ঢাকা, ১৬ মার্চ (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) --- গত বছর প্রিমিয়ার লিগের মাঝপথে সড়ক দুর্ঘটনা অকালে কেড়ে নিয়েছিল মাঞ্জারুল ইসলাম রানার প্রাণ। প্রিয় সতীর্থ হারানোর শোককে শক্তিতে পরিণত করে পরদিনই (১৭ মার্চ, ২০০৭) যেমন জাতীয় দলের ক্রিকেটাররা ত্রিনিদাদে ভারতকে হারিয়ে শুরু করেছিলেন স্বপ্নের এক বিশ্বকাপ যাত্রা, তেমনি রানার আবাহনী সতীর্থরাও কম যাননি। লিগ শিরোপা জিতে সেটা উৎসর্গ করেছিলেন রানাকে। আগেরবার অধরা থেকে যাওয়া টোয়েন্টি টোয়েন্টির শিরোপা জয়ের দিনেও তাদের রানার কথা মনে পড়ে গেল খুব। রোববার মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা জাতীয় স্টেডিয়ামে সিটি ক্লাবকে ৬ উইকেটে হারিয়ে তাদের এই শিরোপা জয়ের দিনটা যে রানার প্রথম মৃত্যুবার্ষিকী। অধিনায়ক তুষার ইমরান ট্রফি নিয়ে এসেই বললেন, "এটা রানার জন্য।"

টস জিতে ব্যাটিংয়ে নামা সিটি ক্লাবকে শুরুতেই ব্যাকফুটে ঠেলে দেন পেসার জিয়াউর রহমান (৩/১৯)। প্রিমিয়ার টোয়েন্টি টোয়েন্টির সেরা খেলোয়াড়ের পুরস্কার পাওয়া জিয়া ২১ রানে ৩ উইকেট হারানো দলে পরিণত করেন সিটিকে। সেখান থেকে তাদের ২০ ওভারে ৭৯ রানে অলআউট হয়ে যাওয়ার কারণ আরাফাত সানির ঘূর্ণিজাদু। এই বাঁ হাতি স্পিনার মাত্র ১২ রানে ৫ উইকেট তুলে নিয়ে হয়েছেন ফাইনালের সেরা খেলোয়াড়। এরপর ওপেনার মাহবুবুল করিমের মাত্র ৭ বলে ২০ রানের ইনিংস আবাহনীকে দেখিয়ে যায় সহজ জয়ের পথ। ১৮.৩ ওভারেই লক্ষ্যে পৌছানোয় একপ্রান্ত আগলে রেখেছেন অন্য ওপেনার জহুরুল ইসলাম (২৩*)।
Armchair selectors name their XI and conduct heated selection meetings on internet. Blood young players, some experts cry. Pick the best players, regardless of age, insist others.

Yesterday Rana's family arranged an informal prayer program at their home. Family members, relatives and well wishers attended this program along with friends. Khulna DSA also arranged a program at the same time.
And Allah Knows the best
