Default Kitply Tri Series Performance Appraisal (BCB, Siddons, Ash & Co)

KITPLY TRI SERIES PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL (BCB, SIDDONS, ASH & CO)


With the conclusion of the mini KITPLY tri series at Dhaka it may be worthwhile to see how much our BCB Selectors, Coach Siddons, Ash and Co has progressed .

I take this opportunity to make a humble appraisal of the aforementioned persons.

I apologize to the readers at the very outset that it is going to be a long post so may I request to bear with me .

My rationale for grading is based on :

A = excellent ( 80%–100%)
B = good (70%–79%)
C = average (60%–69%)
D = poor (50%–59%)
F = failing (remedial action necessary, 0%–49%) .


BCB SELECTORS – TEAM SELECTION

Given the quality of players available barring a couple of players overall team selection was satisfactory .

With such a poor performance against Paklstan Shahriyar Nafis’s selection came as a surprise and results are there for everybody to see.

He got out to a careless shot in the first match. However he was out to a good ball in the second one.

It was a selection blunder that had huge impact on the team on different fronts.

By selecting him the selectors deprived another candidate who could have solved their misery of getting the right fit for the opener’s slot .

This performance will definitely dent the confidence of Shahriyar Nafis.

Because of his early exit in both the matches it put enormous pressure on Ash and the subsequent batsmen and which subsequently compelled Ash to play two strange innings. However given the circumstances one can’t blame Ash a lot as he had to hold on to the fort as wickets fell like nine pins. His effort saved the team from having to face the ignominy of being shot out without completing the full quota of 50 overs.

I thought that Javed Omar Belim would have been a much better option because of his ability to graft an innings and hold one end while Tamim accelerated the innings .

Biggest blunder – Omitting Rasel.

Rasel has been a proven performer in the world cup . More importantly he is economical and can make early strikes which he amply proved in the last World Cup.

He should have been given a chance.
.
On the positive side Credit must be given to BCB selectors for taking a bold step in providing Dollar Mahmud a debut opportunity and his inclusion seemed fully justified as results shows.

The Selectors also took a bold decision of including Alok in the playing eleven despite the fact he was laid off for a long time and one feared he may appear a bit rusty.

Alok a responded in style by taking 3 prized wickets for 49 runs.

Coach

Siddons Vision

Needs to a have a more ambitious goal.

His goal setting of 200 + score will not even work when playing against the likes of Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ireland.

These days with the IPL effect anything less than 275 cannot be safe.

Step by step improvement works for babes for like Kenya, Ireland. We are not in the baby stage. He must have a broader and challenging vision for us.

Needs to cut down on vacation and concentrate on more practice matches.

Needs to burn midnight oil to bring about drastic improvements on all departments : Batting, Bowling, Fielding .

Grade C

Siddons Game Plan

The defeatist mentality still continues.

Ash mentioned in the first one dayer Match Presentation that we were 4O runs short in other words the match was beyond our reach and started the game with a negative mindset giving the impression that he has already thrown the towel.

To make matters worse Nafees and the middle order collapsed pathetically .

He is supposed to be specialist Batting Coach . Why is our batting repeatedly failing?

I don’t get it . What’s the catch ?

Overall Getting better though at a painfully slow pace. God only knows when the pace will reach optimum level that will bring us victory . One hopes that happens before his contract term expires.

BD TEAM

Team Bowling

It was impressive in the first match but had little impact in the second one dayer with main strike bowler going wicketless
Grade:C

Team Fielding

Fielding : Very impressive in the First One dayer. Stopped and saved valuable runs, Great Catch by Rahim to dismiss Kamran Akmal and a good piece of run out to dismiss dangerman Younus Khan.
Grade:B

Team Fightback

Great fightback by BD bowlers in the first One dayer to restrict Pakistan from an imposing position of 179 for 4 to 233 all out which means the BD bowlers took last 6 wickets at an expense of only 54 runs. An outstanding performance indeed!
Grade: A

Team Batting

In the first One dayer barring Ashraful only two others Tamim and Razzaq could make a score of 20 + which is a shocking and pathetic performance

Second match :
Much better performance based on Raqibul’s masterful 89 supported by Ash ‘s 36 and useful contribution from and Riyad (24) and Alok (20)

Overall : Grade:C

Team Captaincy
Ash handled the bowlers well in the first match as evident from the fact that bowlers were able to restrict Pakistan from a strong position of 75 for 1 to 233 the last 6 wicket fell for 54 runs. Fielding was good as evident form their body language in the first One dayer
GRADE:C

Individual Performance

Tamim Iqbal Unlucky series . Just could not carry on with the good start in the first one dayer and unlucky to get out quickly in the second one dayer.
Grade:C

Shahriar Nafees
What can I say? Time for soul searching and fix problems either through Siddons or some other Coach. We all know he has huge talent .But if that talent cannot be put to use ,what good it is ?
GRADE:F

Mohammad Ashraful
Can’t blame much . One feels sorry for him to carry out Coaches ‘Bitter Pill to swallow’ instructions at personal skill’s expense. Also Nafees’s early exit in both the one dayers and some pathetic performance of the top and middle order put hIm under enormous pressure.

I am confident once the opening pair issue is solved he will play his natural game and build up good scores.
GRADE :C

Raqibul Hasan
The Find of the Tri Series . Hs impressed all and sundry wit with compact defense and offence. Is definitely a star of the future.
GRADE:A

Alok Kapali
What a comeback!. Proved there is no substitute to experience.

Great Performance with the ball in the First One dayer claiming 3 priceless wickets for 49.

Chipped in with 20 in the second one dayer when chips were down.
GRADE B


Mushfiqur Rahim
The Golden Boy looked confused . Disappointing show though took a marvellous catch to give Dollar Mahmud to enable him to earn his debut wicket. Scores of 15 and 6 at SR of
51.72 and 54.54 disappointed everyone. Let’s give him one more chance.

Who knows in the next phase he can become a Diamond Boy as cricket is a game of great unpredictability.
GRADE

Mahmudullah
Is a promising all rounder. Did well with the bat in the second one dayer.

Is a handy bowler. Though wicketless He was able to contain the batsman.
Grade:B

Shahadat
Unfortunate match for Shahadat.

Went wicketless for 46 runs in 6overs. Everyone felt the absence of Rasel.
Grade

Farhad Reza
Farhad Reza came in place of Shahadat in the second one dayer.

Failed to impress with the bat being run out for 5.

Bowlingwise was expensive though he managed to capture one wicket for 45 runs.
Grade

Mashrafe Mortaza
Nothing extraordinary . But had a great comeback spell in the first one dayer taking 2 for 36 both wickets coming in one over.

Could not do full justice with his reputation as a useful tailender batsman with scores of 0 and 13.

Disappointed to see him going wicketless in the second One Dayer.
Grade:C

Dollar Mahmud
Good debut . Nice to see him getting the first wicket albeit to a superb catch from Rahim. He is one of the few bowlers who got wickets in both the matches which is a good sign that he has wicket taking abilities and augurs well for the future.

He did went for runs in the second one dayer. But with experience he will come good.

Looks promising : BCB should stick with him.
Grade:B

Abdur Razzak
Great comeback. After a frustrating time with his IPL team where he sat out in the bench for the better part he came back with a bang and a great bowling performance in the first one dayer where he took 3 wickets for 35 including 2 wickets in 2 balls .

He also batted well as he always does in both one dayers and remained unconquered with 26 and 8 respectively.

Razzaq is a much improved batsman and should be played higher up the order .

Grade:A

Areas of improvement.

Opening Spot : We are definitely in a crisis situation for one of the opening spots as Nafees looked out of sorts in both the One dayers. Though not selected Javed should be summoned for consideration in matches that is coming after the Asia cup .

For any side if the opening combination cannot put up a decent score of at least a 50 it puts a lot of pressure on the subsequent batsman.

Bowling wise BD sorely missed the services of Rasel who is a proven wicket taking and economical bowler. He needs an immediate callback to reinforce the bowling department.

Wicket keeper Batsman. Rahim was unable to deliver the goods that was expected of him in either of the One dayers . To be fair to him Let’s give him another chance in the Asia Cup. If that does not work we have to go back to Dhiman .

It is high time we have Bowling and Fielding Coaches.

We want proven performers capable of giving instant results in the mould of Dav Whatmore.

Let’s meanwhile wait and see if Siddons and Ashraful can better our performance.

All the Best to Siddons, Ash & Co for the Asia Cup

Allah Hafez.

Cheers!

I believe that Rasel has injured his ankle, and that is the reason he is out of the squad.Since his shoulder injury in NZ, he has been struggling, and then for his bad luck, he injured his ankle.

I feel that Ash should revert back to his natural way of batting. He is thoroughly confused at the moment, and I fear his performance might get worse.
As for Rahim, he should be given more chances. Dhiman is not better than him, but each national team should have 2 wicketkeepers and these two should be rotated.

overall i'd say i wasn't too dissapointed with the series.. even though the guys didn't seem to have any aim of winning.. it wasn't that bad i think.. and as for rahim.. well.. 2 matches are really not fair.. he should continue for the asia cup.. and from there on.. both dhman and rahim should be used on a rotational basis like zainab apu said.. shahadat & farhad didn't get too much of a chance to impress.. good comeback by razzak and mash was average.. u want him to do better.. i wish ash would put a bit of spice into his batting.. but i dont want him to get out playing unnecasary shots.. something needs to be done with SN and as for rasel.. i hope he comes back soon.. he is missed by one and all..

A very good analysis.
much thanks for this... really appreciate it....
zainab already corrected the rassel issue... and the rest was brilliantly done...
enjoyed the read... keep it up bro!

on the opening issue... my suggestion would be to give junaed an extended run because it was unfair on him.... the whole switching too often and not letting him settle in or feel secure, where as SN was given far too many chances.
I would however recommend keeping SN in the fold... with the minnows for the time being to get him bak his confidence... and when he scores in the domestic too, we can try him again if someone else is on a low...

it would have been really good if the had SN in the academy team actually although i do understand it would be disgracing him... he is turning into a very sad story....

a big thumbs up to Alok! keep it up! if he performs either with bat or ball, he will get his form and confidence in the other as well. thats just how all rounders roll in general.

Keep it coming higher to Mahmudullah and Ash... i feel they hav tried well and have been doing fairly reasonable given the circumstances.

and man of the tournament award goes to Razzk... WELCOME BACK BUDDY!

Hello Foozy,

Thanks for your Feedback and appreciation.

I agree with you 100 % on Shahriyar Nafis issue.

Shahriyar's form and performance is a matter of concern which as I have mentioned in my thread is putting the captain and rest of the team under great pressure.

One cannot blame Siddons much as it is difficult for a Coach to bring about major changes to techniques of a senior player.

We do not want to write off Shahriyar Nafis so soon. He was one of our key batsman and Vice captain of the team a few years back and he did put up a great performance against the World Champions Aussies some years back.

We all remember his outstanding performance against the Aussies with great pride.

He later on played a memorable undefeated century knock against Zimbabwe in an international tournament in India.

The hallmark of that innings was his excellent pacing. First fifty he grafted and played every ball on merit. Once he crossed fifty he cut loose and treated the Zimbabwean bowlers with utter disdain.

I also noticed that his confidence level grew so high in that match that for rest of the fifty he played without a helmet meaning he was seeing the ball like a balloon and also hinting to opposing bowlers that your bowling is kid stuff I don't need a helmet.

BCB which has of late is making some good decisions on different aspects of BD cricket needs to look beyond Siddons to correct Shahriyar's shortcomings.

But honestly speaking if you watch Shahriyar's batting during the last World Cup and against Pakistan in Pakistan and recently in the Kitply cup he is technically nowhere near Tamim or Junaed or Raqib or Saqib. Just watch his shots.

Shahriyar is probably the most educated amongst the present crop of BD cricketers.

He was doing MBA. Has he completed ? He is at ease and very fluent with the media . Those are plus points. If he can voluntarily take a break and work on his shortcomings he might have a good second innings .Cricketers like Gautam Gambhir who was left out of the team because of some shortcomings took advantage of this by doing soul searching, working hard on the faulty techiques and on comeback has turned into one of the top batsman of the Indian team these days.

I am sure Shahriyar will come back sooner or later after correcting his techniques.

My good wishes to Shahriyar !

You can do it Shahriyar.

Our prayers are with you.

Allah Hafez.

Cheers!

Very thorough analysis. Job well done. Here is mine.

F for the selectors. Reason being of sacking Dhiman for no good reason. Bringing in another debut in Dolar. Way too early. Farhad, Shahadat, Mash could have easily played both games. Not that the BD team is on a killing spree. One change would make all the difference. In Point scale: they get a 10 for retaining Raqibul, Riyad and giving them a chance.

Players: Tamim flopped. We have no choice but to stick with him.
SN: did the same. He needs to move down the order.
JS: If we can stick with SN, we certainly can stick with JS keeping an eye on the test position.
Ash: showed class in not scoring on Yunus Khan.
Raqibul: Already more consistant than Aftab Ahmed.
Mushi: Not his fault that he was selected. But since he was selected he can't be dropped only after two matches.
Alok: Thank you for your service and keeping the seat warm for Shakib.

You guys r saying we should drop SN and let ZN play and make those zeros. But have you thought about what will this do to his confidence (ZN)? this will impact his TEST form too.

So i say siddon is doing the right thing here he is letting SN play and trying to correct his problem. And may be he will come good against Minnows in the mean time ZN is getting ready for ODI and TEST. he is solving his short coming outside NTL.

Its might show that ZN is not getting chances or what but i think its best for him and BD that he comes back with a bang. In the mean time Siddon is working with a stop gap solution.

So instead of saying bring back ZN bring back ZN we should be happy that Siddion is at least working in the background to create our NEXT HAIDDEN... So go Siddions go.

And Hope by the time ZN is ready, SN will find his form and can bat in the middle...

Why am I called Apu? What does Apu mean in Bengali?

Apu in Bengali means Big sister. or Sister. Normally if the girl's age is greater then the person is calling then they are called by the name and apu at the end or just but saying apu...

sister zainab,

"apu" is a much used (in bangladesh) affectionate version of the bengali word "apa" meaning big sister or sister in general!
we love you and we are truly blessed by your presence in our lives here in bc. your constant support for our young, fragile yet glorious tigers will only make them and all of us stronger and better souls!
by the way, many times it is you and our sohel nadeem rahman bhai inspired me to forgive our ashraful the magnificent and thus i learned to appreciate and understand him more!
apu pronounces like aa-pu!

i wasnt too disapointed.we should take early wickts,i mean we can bowl strong oppositions out or @least take around7-8 wickets but they do not come @ the right times.fielding should be better,more aggressive and the coach is doing pretty well...

Terrible series to say the least. Those grades are quite fair I suppose. Maybe slightly lenient. Anyway....let's hope for a better Asia Cup. =]

Not that the BD team is on a killing spree. One change would make all the difference. In Point scale: they get a 10 for retaining Raqibul, Riyad and giving them a chance.

Players: Tamim flopped. We have no choice but to stick with him.
SN: did the same. He needs to move down the order.
JS: If we can stick with SN, we certainly can stick with JS keeping an eye on the test position.
Ash: showed class in not scoring on Yunus Khan.
Raqibul: Already more consistant than Aftab Ahmed.
Mushi: Not his fault that he was selected. But since he was selected he can't be dropped only after two matches.
Alok: Thank you for your service and keeping the seat warm for Shakib.

Default Bengali Word Apu Clarification

In Sri lanka a head butler is called an APU.
Hello Zainab Apu,

Apu is a customized version of the Bengali word Apa which means sister.

Apa is used when you are formal with somebody and typically you address that with somebody older than you.

Apu is used when you are close or informal with somebody and the person can be older or younger than you.

In West Bengal India where people speak the same language they use Didi for sister.

With somebody much younger and very close and out of adoration I have seen people using Didi Moni.

You are in the safe zone.(Just kidding!)

Hope this helps

Allah Hafez.

Cheers!

So i say siddon is doing the right thing here he is letting SN play and trying to correct his problem. And may be he will come good against Minnows in the mean time ZN is getting ready for ODI and TEST. he is solving his short coming outside NTL.

Its might show that ZN is not getting chances or what but i think its best for him and BD that he comes back with a bang. In the mean time Siddon is working with a stop gap solution.

So instead of saying bring back ZN bring back ZN we should be happy that Siddion is at least working in the background to create our NEXT HAIDDEN... So go Siddions go.

And Hope by the time ZN is ready, SN will find his form and can bat in the middle...
