Default Zimbabwe ODIs: Enamul Jr. to replace Razzak

Tour of Zimbabwe 2009: Enamul Haque Jr. to replace Abdur Razzak
Left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak has a strained hamstring and has been ruled out of Bangladesh’s Tour of Zimbabwe 2009. Razzak suffered the injury while batting during the third and final ODI against the West Indies at St. Kitts on Friday.

Fellow left-arm spinner Enamul Haque Jr. will replace Razzak on the Tour of Zimbabwe. Enamul is due to join the Bangladesh Team in Dubai on Wednesday, 05 August and will fly to Zimbabwe with the squad. Razzak would return home to continue with his recovery.

Opportunity for Enamul, But I am not so sure if he will be very useful. Could have tried some new guys. Enam isn't great with the bat either.

I am not a big fan of enamul either. But I can't think of anyone else who can be a good replacement. perhaps an allrounder?

WTF! Razzak has been pulled out of a tour because of a strained hamstring! How long a hamstring pull take to recover?!

The move seems fishy to me. May be he and the team management have realized that he needs more time to adapt to his new action and using this as an excuse to send him home?

Why does it seem fishy to you? LMAO

hamstring pull is a very commonw sports related injury and depending on the severity it can take weeks - months. Here is some info for you to read up on.

Thanks for the info. But he came to collect his medal walking on his own feet, right? I don't remember seeing him limping. So, I am having hard time to believe he is having such a severe case of hamstring pull that he has to be ruled out of a tour.

In Zimbabwe, quick bowlers will be important. Not spinners. But it is a good opportunity for Enamul to do something in ODI and foriegn soil as well. Good Luck.

You don't have to be severly injured to be taken out of the team. Some cases are precautionary so that you don't further aggravate an already strained hamstring. If you are on a stage one injury and keep playing with that it will get worse - resulting in longer recovery time (months instead of weeks). Why risk that? Specially when Razzaq is an important player in the team.


Just because you didn't see him limping doesn't mean he doesn't have an injury.

Actually, word is that the pitch used in the series will be spinner friendly. Which makes sense as Zimbabwean spinners are much better than their pacers. Our batsmen are not that great against spinners either. So, our spinners are likely to turn out to be our key players once again.

The management is risking Sakib who is having a chronic case of groin injury. He should have been sent to London, take an injection for his left groin (like he had taken for his right groin in past), rest there for five days and then join the team. But he is being risked for the sake of the team, which makes Razzak's case even more suspicious.

I think Zimbabwean team will put up better fight compared to west indies and i also think that they will be more disciplined in their approach. So i hope that our team does not become complacent.

BTW, good news for Enamul.

If your information is true than it can be suicidal for Zimbabwe. Their batters are better to play quick ball than spin. Our batters will be more comfortable to play spin comparing with quick ball.

Let see.

Good luck to Enam. I hope he takes this opportunity with both hands ...

It's a gamble, no doubt. But keep in mind that Zimbabwe won 2 out of 4 ODIs against Bangladesh team in Bangladesh earlier this year because of their spinners. Now they think their spin department is even more stronger with inclusion of Cramer, a leggie (and that kind of bowlers have shown good success against Bangladesh in past).

On the other hand, after playing Sammy and Roach, our batsmen will be comfy playing Zimbabwean medium pacers even if they are given a pacy wicket.

If someone is a good bowler, pitch doen't matter. We have seen WI pacers being equally effective in spinning pitches. But off course, pitch matters a lot to not so good bowlers, they need additional help.

We have some quality spinners, who can bowl well in almost any surface. A good bouncy picth could make our pacers a bit more effective.

You can't generalize all types of injury. You don't have any information regarding the depth of his injury to make a judgment that he can take some pills, get an injection and get right back to the game few days later.

They didn't have problem admitting that he needed to correct his action before - why would they have a problem admitting the same thing now?

Me thinks you are sweating over nothing. Injuries happen, team moves on with an alternative, nothing more to it.

Enamul in the team will give us a psychological advantage, considering how successful he has been against Zimbabwe in the past. Having said that, I also, like Ehsen, think this is strange. There were no sign of any visible discomfort from Razzak during or after the match.

Another comment, for those that think the Zimbabweans are better at pace than spin, I'd say take a look back at the recent matches they played. Not only do they have quality spinners, they also have variety. In my opinion, they are back to international standard as far as bowling strength is concerned. It would be no surprise if Bulawayo pitch(no matches in Harare) is prepared for spin.

would have been good to see shuvo but they went with enamul for the WI tour and they're sticking with him which i guess can be looked at as a good thing.

Actually, it is not quick ball, it will be quick wicket. Zimbabwe batters are comfortable in fast/bouncy wicket rather dust covered spinning wicket. Now in a spinning wicket if the bowlers are SA pace squadron (Steyn, Ntini, Kallis, Morkel) then definitely Zimbabwe will be on trouble. On the other hand, in a quick wicket if the bowlers are Indian spinners (Harbhajan, Kumble) than they will find it difficult.

Bowler’s quality and wicket condition are equal effective. Considering both teams are equal standard, I think Zimbabwe will be comfortable in Fast & Bouncy wicket and Bangladesh will be comfortable in Slow and Turning wicket.

Btw, you never know, enamul has more turn than razzak, and might be able to trouble the zim players....

Did he not need a runner? Didn't Naeem come to his assistance?

I would have thought Shuvo was a better choice thinking for the future. But not complaining on Enam though. Would have been doing this had MRafique was picked. He can still give 10 overs without problem.

If this is true, I think, it needs to stay confidential for the interest of the team and the country.
