Default Rakibul the Beast

Didn't believe he can be aggressive before, really shined today.

Rokibul is miles ahead of Ash, though I'm not still convinced. He has all the shots and solid technique, just need to execute it well instead of being a sissy. Well done Rock.

good thing abt Rok is that he relies on his techniques and his abilities,doesn't fancy his chances,not as adventurous as Ash,

where we go. Bring out the butt kissing threads.

I can't wait for the next butt kicking threads. Lets see how long he can last without one.

I dont think can never be convinced with a player like roqibul.

It's really annoying he'll score a convincing half century one match and assure his place in the team for the next 10 matches but fails to continue performing

However I am surprised to see his SR, if he can maintain this then Im happy.

He has done it against the top 8 teams too. You guys seem to be forgetting that just before the New Zealand series he scored an aggressive 75 against England in English conditions. Unfortunately after that, he got injured. I believe in the New Zealand series he was simply out of form. No matter who the opposition is, Rok almost always provides stability to out fragile batting order. The difference between these two matches versus Zimbawe should clearly show that stability is much more important than flashiness.

Rakib has proven that he can shift gears(the first-class 100 against England before he "retired", his rapid innings in the NCL ODIs are good examples too) but his role in the team doesnt allow him to free his arms. I have always preferred Raqib instead of "jodi-laigga-jai" Ashraful. Maybe its because I have always thought average being more important than strike-rate for a middle-order batsman.

@people who say Rakib only scores one 50 in 10 matches, I think you are mistaking him for Ashraful. If what you said were true, Rok's average would be as low as Ashraful. Even if Rok doesnt score a 50 he holds the innings together for us and almost always score 35+ runs which is still better than Ashraful's adventurous -10 runs.

What impresses me the most about players like Juhurul and Rakib are, they are always trying to improve themselves arnd are trying to prove a point. For example, I think Rakib hit those flurry of boundaries after reaching his 40s, just to prove that he can play his shots if he wants to. In other words, he takes nothing for granted and has a "patla chamra" while Ash has a "Gondarer Chamra", (i.e Ash thinks he will always have a place in the national team and has already proved his ability in the past which makes any further showing off reduntant, you know, like "I have already shown it all")


@Guys who want Rakib only in Tests and not in ODIs, well think again, Rakib is much better in ODIs than he is in Tests. Ashraful on the other hand, sucks in every form of the game (he sucked in Asian Games T20)

Rokibul is just another shahriar nafees. Utter crap against quality opponent.

In fact, SN is a better minnow basher than he is.

Seriously ? one 50 that too against a minnow where we had already won the match when he walked in and hes the beast ? yeah right.

But i must credit him for ONE single thing and that is he looked for RUNS all the time. He came down the wicket, and nudged for singles and when the opportunity prevailed went for the big one. As someone says, he relies heavily on technique and thats his only thing that can save him. Thats how he should always play. But the question is, can he do this consistently ?

This was a pleasant surprise.

All his boundaries were clean strikes and he seemed at ease while playing them. Let's hope he carries on.

I gotta say Roqibul played a very good innings today. He started off pretty slowly but eventually accelerated which was a very good sign. Haven't seen Roqibul play those kind of shots in a long long time. He kept a level head until he unnecessarily got out. However this is just 1 good game for Roqibul and on top of that it is against Zimbabwe. I want him to play consistently in this series. He should aim for 1 or 2 more 50's. Then I can confidently say he will be our #4 for the WC. Great to see him backing up Shakib's words and performing. Wish him luck for the rest of the games.

not true pal.
He played some good innings against Ind,SA,Eng,Sri.
He hasn't been too regular in the team,sometimes due to injury,sometimes due to poor form & also with all that DRAMA.
But as far as I've seen he is like Imrul Kayes,won't be too dominating,won't get that many hundreds but will often score 30-60.

He can be aggressive, in fact I don't think playing overly defensive is his style. I think he plays defensively only when he is struggling, you could tell that. When he was in form, back when he made his debut, he scored at a decent rate. Rakibul when at his best, is perhaps one of the best if not the best accumulator(s) in the team. I hope he can keep this up.

I agree, there shouldn't be any butt kissing threads. Only butt kicking ones until they bring us the World Cup, which may never happen.

He has played aggressively in the past. But the problem occurs when he starts going into the shells. Don't know if he is finally out this time or temporarily.
