Sakib would walk into any team in the world, easy.
Tamim would walk into most teams in the world.

Good to see Siddons also drumming things a bit for us.
He senses blood too.

Nice read. Thanks a lot Spitty. I'm eagerly waiting for the Aussies to be at soil for test and ODI cricket. I think with the present BD form and the Aussies problem against spin and slow low track like BD one it's gonna be a real tough challenge for them.

Let's hope that, after the WC when BD would be in enthusiastic mood with great wins in the tourney ad Aussies would be in a bit back footed after disappointing performance at WC. I'm having a good feeling about the tour. I hope the Aussies would play and won't act as a sissy.

Really nice read. Its funnt how even last year we were no position to compare with the Aussies but today we are desperate to play them. Even last year they were ignorant of us, now the want to avoid playing us at our own soil!! Its true all what Siddons said. He did not exaggerate a little. Sakib has the ability to run through the entire Englsih batting order thats for sure. And Tamim proved his worth this year by far.

Dunt be too harsh on Ponting though, even though i hate him, he is still the most successful captain in history.

Proud of Siddons. He has no hesitation to challenge the Australian cricket right at their media. We finally have a coach that has trust on our players. I an tell you this now, Siddons really wants to stick with Bangladesh Cricket because he is really into it

Mushfiq is rising, so is Razzaq, Shafiul............. all we need right now is one stable batsman in the middle order, a PP finisher and a healthy pace attack. We would be almost impossible to beat at home, and we would put up a good show at anywhere in the world

Shakib much better batsman than vettori? Disagree, Shakib as of now is not much better, but he's by far the better bowler imo.

I don't even see how you can compare Shakib's batting with Vettori's. Vettori is completely inferior to Shakib in the batting department. Vettori might be a little better than Shakib with the ball though. But not by a whole lot.

Not sure if I am a big fan of the word "even" as it relates to this article. If you want to show disrespect, state it without that "even". "Event" makes it sound like...typically all our players are not worth it, but now even we can be a big guy like you.

Oh well - can't complain about everything. Right?

If you read the article carefully Siddons never says "even." It's the reporter who adds it in the title.

We can't make players out of nothing... you can only become world-class if you have the potential. Having said that, Razzak could be classed as a world-class ODI player if he continues his form into 2011. I'm not sure where the other one would come from, you could argue that Mash could be world-class if he didn't break down so often.

Somewhere in there I saw a great potential in Naeem Islam. I haven't seen him get picked for a while now. His late order cameo can be useful - and has been useful before.

^^^ So you saying there is no one else who have potential.

I say word "potential" sux. What you need is hunger to succeed like Shakib and Tamim.

I dont see any other word class in the making (except razzak but he too proves quite ineffective with stronger teams). But i would love to see some new faces (rumman). Players whom we have seen enough of (Ashraful, Rakibul, Junaid (I will let him play tests tho) ) should be discarded immediately (after the WC, before is better although dont quite see that happening) and should be replaced with the likes of Jahurul, SN, Naeem and Mahmudullah so that we can reach a conclusion about them. Thats my goal for 2011 in a nutshell.
