Default High promise, little success - BCB president completes one-year in office

Today BCB President - Lotus Kamal completed one year of his tenure. The New Age BD article headline says it all - "High promise, little success"
================================================== ==================

High promise, little success - BCB president completes one-year in office
The New Age BD - Link
Azad Majumder

Bangladesh Cricket Board president AHM Mustafa Kamal will complete his first year in the hotseat today that drew mixed reactions from country's cricket fraternity.
Kamal, a ruling party lawmaker and chairman of the parliamentary standing committee on the finance ministry, was appointed BCB president on September 23, 2009, nine months after his party assumed power.
Expectation was high of Kamal as he was the first BCB president in many years with some organisational background. He took office after 17 years as the chairman of Abahani cricket committee, which made him a popular choice for the coveted post.
But his first year in the job was marked with more controversy than success, said the former cricketers as they had expected a qualitative change in cricket administration during his tenure.
To be honest, I would not say he did very badly, but I had more expectation from him,said former Habibul Bashar.
Kamal first hit the headlines when he overtly criticised the national cricket team at a programme that forced the then skipper Sakib al Hasan to react, which was very embarrassing for him.
National batsman Roqibul Hassan also left him in an embarrassing position by prematurely retiring from all cricket apparently in protest at his interference in selection for the ICC World Twenty20 and the one-day series against England.
Bangladesh as a result missed the services of in-form Roqibul in the subsequent Test series, which was also not free from controversy as the host Board decided against using the Umpiring Decision Review System.
Sakib blasted the BCB, who spent a huge amount of money in receiving the then ICC president David Morgan, but was not generous enough to open its coffers for the UDRS that cost the hosts a possible Test win.
Kamal was also lately embarrassed after leaking the name of Lance Klusener to one of his media friends as the new bowling coach of national side keeping the others completely in dark.
Klusener finally denied taking up the post, which was another blow to his reputation. During his time, the on-field performances of the national team was also poor, although they managed to complete the circle of beating all Test-playing nations by overpowering England in the second ODI at Bristol in July.
The tour, however, ended on a sour note as Bangladesh lost to two ICC associates members, Ireland and the Netherlands, in two ODIs.
The performance of Bangladesh Under-19 team was also frustrating in the last one year as they failed to qualify for the Cup stage in the ICC Under-19 World Cup, held in New Zealand, despite showing a high promise.
This was an area where former skipper Roquibul Hassan saw a serious lapse.
In the last one year, cricket certainly has gone forward. But for more positive result the management must focus on developmental activities where a lot more I expected,he said.
Kamal, however, has had some success in his first year, which the former cricketers said will bear fruit in near future. One of his major successes was completing the appointment for key posts like chief executive officer, chief financial officer and bowling and fielding coaches of the national side.
In his time, the BCB introduced the franchise-based NCL Twenty20 League, which took cricket to a buzz, albeit for a brief period.
Asked about his time as BCB president, Kamal refused to make any comments and said he will share his feelings with the media in a press conference, tentatively on September 28.

বিসিবি সভাপতির বছর পূর্তি
আছে সাফল্য আছে বিতর্ক

বিশেষ প্রতিনিধি
২৩ সেপ্টেম্বর... এক বছর আগে এদিনে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের (বিসিবি) সভাপতির দায়িত্ব নিয়েছিলেন আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল এমপি। বর্তমান সরকার ক্ষমতায় আসার ৯ মাসের সময় দলীয় এ সাংসদকে এ পদে নিয়োগের পর দেশের ক্রিকেট নিয়ে ক্রীড়ামোদীদের মধ্যে জ্বলেছিল আশার আলো। দেশের অন্যতম সেরা ক্লাব আবাহনী লিমিটেডের ক্রিকেট কমিটির শীর্ষ কর্তা হিসেবে কাজ করেছেন টানা ১৭ বছর। সেখানে শুধু সাফল্যই পাননি, ক্রিকেটকে দিয়েছেন নতুন মাত্রা। তার কাছে দেশের ক্রিকেটপ্রেমীরা অনেক কিছু আশা করতেই পারেন।
ক্রিকেটপ্রেমীদের প্রত্যাশা মূল্যায়নের জন্য এক বছর খুব বেশি সময় না হলেও তার মেয়াদের শুরুটা কেমন হলো? জাতীয় দলের দুই সাবেক অধিনায়ক রকিবুল হাসান ও হাবিবুল বাশার সুমনের কাছে জানতে চাইলে দু'জনই বললেন, সত্যি কথা বলতে কী, খুব খারাপ কিছু হয়েছে এটা বলা যাবে না। ভবিষ্যতে আরও ভালো কিছু আশা করছি তার কাছে। এর সঙ্গে খানিকটা যোগ করে রকিুবল হাসান বললেন, আমি আশা করি, তার প্রশাসন ক্রিকেট উন্নয়নে আরও বেশি নজর দেবেন। তার সময়ে জাতীয় লীগে টোয়েন্টি২০ ক্রিকেটের প্রথম আয়োজনটি ছিল শতভাগ সফল। এর বাইরে গত এক বছরে আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামালের কিছু কথা, কিছু কাজ বিতর্কের ঝড় তুললেও স্বল্প সময়ে সেসব বিতর্ক নিয়ন্ত্রণের মধ্যে নিয়েছেন তিনি আপন দক্ষতায়। তবে সর্বশেষ বোলিং কোচ নিয়ে ক্লুজনারের নিয়োগের কথা আগেভাগে মিডিয়ায় জানিয়ে দিলেও শেষ পর্যন্ত বোলিং কোচ এসেছেন নতুন একজন। সাকিব-বোর্ড সভাপতি কথার লড়াইও মুখর করে রেখেছিল ক্রীড়াঙ্গন। নির্বাচকদের কাজে হস্তক্ষেপ করেন বোর্ড সভাপতি_ আকারে ইঙ্গিতে এমন অভিযোগ করেই জাতীয় দল থেকে পদত্যাগের ঘোষণা দিয়েছিলেন রাকিবুল হাসান। ইংল্যান্ডে ব্যর্থ সফরের পর আইসিসির দুই সহযোগী দেশ আয়ারল্যান্ড ও স্কটল্যান্ডের কাছে হার ছিল গত এক বছরে তার জন্য সবচেয়ে বিব্রতকর। অনূর্ধ্ব-১৯ বিশ্বকাপে চরম ব্যর্থ ছিল বাংলাদেশ। ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে হোম সিরিজে ব্যয়বহুল বলে রিভিউ সিস্টেম (ইউডিআরএস) ব্যবহার না করার কারণে জয়বঞ্চিত তৎকালীন অধিনায়ক সাকিব আল হাসান প্রকাশ্যে ক্ষোভ প্রকাশ করেন। এ নিয়েও কম বিতর্ক হয়নি মোস্তফা কামালের এ রকম বছরের সময়কালে।

It's a political appointment. So, I didn't expect anything better.

I think the worst thing Kamal did so far is making a farce of the academy. Someone should do something before Mithun and Co generation is wasted.

True. But remember Saber Hossain Chowdhury's appointment was also political and he was way more successful than lotus or lobi.
Cosidering Lotus Kamal has 17 yrs experience with one of the biggest and most successful cricket club in Bangladesh, I was expecting a lot better show from him.

With patronage, ground, and other facilities Abahani has, it should have been a power house to develop talented cricketers. Instead, it relied on luring out cricketers, that other clubs (and BKSP) developed, with money. Kamal's mishandling of development programs in BCB is very much consistent with how he handled Abahani.

Can't agree with above, Eshen bhai. so far Abahani won 15 DPL title and 3 times in a row recent years (their main rival won 9 title, 1st in many years). I don't think present days many club develope talented cricketers....it could be true in our pre-test era but now mostly players coming from age group/ academy / training camps/ NCL camp. Kamal's success in club cricket is huge.... that is a fact. He mainly introduced world class cricketer in DPL match - i.e. Wasim Akram, Fairbrother, Lamba etc in early 90's. Abahani win many DPL with average player with better management. That is the key to their success and ahead of many clubs.

^^ Noc, a small club like Young Pegasus had done a tremendous job of bringing up players like Farhad Reza, Imrul Kayes, and Zunaed Siddique. CCS gave us Shuvagoto Hom. I am sure there are many other clubs that have half decent development programs of their own and are not entirely dependent upon talents developed by BCB/BKSP. On contrary, they often feed BKSP/BCB with new talents.

But yeah, Abahani is not the only wealthy club that does not give a hoot about developing cricketers.

I don't know about success with managing average players. Abahani was threatened with relegation in a year when their money flow was not that great.

I knew you would say that. Yes, still small clubs produce few wonders in each season and the next season they most likely picked up buy Bigger clubs.
There is another thing - before, players stay with one club for few season and you know who is playing for whom...but now each year it's different set of players....it's hard to tell who is coming from which team.

Still last few years this set of young players played for Abahani and pretty sure club cricket make them stronger and better - Rony Talukder, Saghir Hossain, Subashis Roy, Nasir Hossain, Mukhtar Ali, Arafat Sunny, Jahurul Islam etc.

All those players were already in BCB academy, they would have been picked by a club or another anyway. I don't see playing for Abahani made in difference how their careers progressed so far.

Again, not picking on Abahani, just saying Kamal's lack of vision for developing cricketers for Abahani is very much consistent with his lack of vision for developing cricketers for the national team.

Big clubs all over the world do same except Barcelona. Plus BD league system is not appropriate to groom talent and let them to play your club. The contract with players is yearly basis, so there is no fruit for club for grooming young talent. He will be robbed by another club in next season.

Which club in BD has any development programme? Answer- no club apart from BKSP which is not a club as you already know. And facilities? Again, no club has facilities even close to what the national team have. Abahani & Mohammedan have a lot of money & nothing more. They need to spend money on improving facilities before developing the young talents.

I think Saber hossain was the best BCB chairperson ever. Ar keu tar dhare kase ashte pare nai.I think because of his intellectual, Bangladesh got ODI status and then Test status. He was smart and knew how to run cricket. when "Bangabandhu league" won the election I thought they would bring back Saber to BCB but again politics made the way for our beloved Lotus. Shob shomvober desh Bangladesh..

Well even a novice cricket expert would not consider Raqibul hasan a t20 material. But our Bagh mama thinks different. It is not like that Lotus picked someone else of his choice on his position. Bangladesh played the series with 13 men. I think the mistake that Lotus made was not to ban Raqibul for atleast a year.

Salahuddin would have been far better choice for BCB even with his little exposure in World Cricket arena. Lota may have been successful in managing people, but he surely lacks in visionary plans.
