Default Raqibul "The Rock" Congratulation.

Raqibul Congratulation on your 107 in the practice match. Hopefully he comes back to the test squad and produces many more centuries.

Yes, Congratulations. Good knock to prove himself.

But wondering, does a FC century against a touring country deserve congratulation thread? We have match thread for this. We should expect this after playing that much cricket in this level.

^^ For sure, Ashrafool should take a break from cricket for at least a year.

Congrats Rock.
You've played a really good knock and raised your point.

Are we so low on success that we need to celebrate a FC century with its own thread?

I am not a big fan of rock but he has always done well on FC level, its the pressure of Intl matches that get to him.

That guy must've practiced his heart out. Well done mate.

Though I must admit, this trend of opening a thread for every century is now just annoying. I mean come on, this was a practice match.

it's a century against a touring team with a pretty poor attack. congrats the the bloke but i don't think it really tells us anything because it wasn't an international quality attack. plus naeem is a more versatile batsman than raqibul, so i'd still be seriously considering bringing naeem in even though rok got this century, both are better than aftab, junaid and ash though.

This is really good news... I was getting really worried about the team. Good to see Rock forcing his way into the team with a solid performance!

When the next highest score is 21 and the opposition is 3 down for not many- it is a very good innings.

maybe, BD teams are notorious for collapsing even on good batting wickets. but lets say it was a good innings, what rok has shown us against quality pace attacks in test cricket is very poor, not likely he can improve that quickly and add to the fact he did it against a poor attack. not all good innings give you useful information about the player, rok has been really poor in test cricket so to prove that he's now a better cricketer he has to bring out scores against good quality attacks and unfortunately for him the one he has faced in this match just isn't that good.

you can only play against those put infront of you, but like i said, not every good innings gives you useful information. all it tells us is that he can score a century against an average attack when the rest of the team was collapsing, that is something we already knew rok was capable of doing.

that says more about the BD top/middle order than the quality of the bowling attack. the english attack in this match is far from being a test quality attack, if rok is to play test cricket regularly he's going to have to face much better attacks.

Bresnan, Shahzad, Plunkett... That's a terrible bowling attack. Yet I think it was a good innings cause most of the others failed.

do you want to say SHAHZADA is better than those three..... ..... .....

well those who worked their way in the ENGLAND SIDE are good bowlers. may be onions, broad, anderson or sidebottom is missing but these are the next best and all of them are better than all the pacers we have in BD.

Lol I won't say that but definitely Shahzada > Rubela, that cannot be denied.

But seriously that is a second string England bowling attack, none of them have impressive FC records. Plunkett's selection has a lot to do with his batting abilities as well and Ajmal is a crap bowler. Bresnan is probably the only decent bowler.

if they were crap why they got selected...... is england out of good bowlers, is there a scarcity of good bowlers playing in the county cricket ???? i dont think so. or are the england selectors crap like bD selectors who select rubel instead of shahjada ????

No one rates Ajmal Shahzad in England, he has been picked for his all round abilities just like Plunkett. England are selecting players on abilities rather than stats now after the retirement of Flintoff.

Most bowlers in England average over 30 in county cricket, England have been lucky that Broad and Anderson have become good bowlers in test cricket. Anderson in particular took a long time to perform well in tests, he was also picked for his talent before not stats.

In the middle they tried so many crap bowlers like Sajid Mahmood, they all failed and they are still doing the same hoping guys Ajmal will also develop into good test match bowler.
