i believe Alok can do the job...he scored a century against Zaheer, Harbhajan and co so I believe he can be that powerhitter at 7....

obviously a gazillion BC members believe otherwise...
agree with you most !!

Nice to see that you're back, Rubu! Alok has that kind of an effect on you.

Hope you're well though.

Good post. I believe Alok can do that, too, and more. But his recent DPL form hasn't been anything extra-ordinary, so far. I cannot fathom why he is playing in the late middle order for Gazi. And how Naeem should bat before Alok?!!

Anyhow, I think all the World Cup hopefuls will play four more matches in the DPL. Alok must score at least two big scores, say, 60 plus (given his batting position) with good Strike Rate. Otherwise, I won't be disappointed if he gets the chop from the 23 as Riyad is getting into some sort of form, albeit, with very poor SR.

But, I would not like to see Naeem anywhere near the WC squad. I would rather prefer Sabbir.

An in form Alok, playing at #4, instead of sissies is a great bonus for us.
I have not seen him for long. If he can show even 80% of his ICL and pre-ICL form, he should be in.

Even Shabbir is playing and averaging better than Alok in the ongoing Premere league.......To get a place he needs to fight out with Nayeem, Riyad...both of whom are performing way better than him at the moment...Alok does not have any proven glorious records in last 2 years in the international level....

Just beacuse he had a few good innings in old old days...does not mean that he deserves a place in current XV.

And this is exactly what happens whenever ther is a discussion on Alok Kapali or Ashraful. These two players will always draw fights, arguments, passion and all sorts of things that are secondary in nature than what the thread was all about to begin with...

Alok Kapali has less than 5% chance being in the 15 and less than 1% chance playing in the final team unless Riad/Naem fails. Neither our selectors nor our captain really has the apetitite or boldness of selecting a player like Alok Kapali at this moment. Its easier to select Ashraful than ALok.

I personally wish he scores more runs and becomes a consistent performer, dominates the tables and allows his NCL team win games and gets selected when there are more clamours about him like what happened to Nannu for the 1999 world cup, Bashar for the test cricket and Rafique during the 2007 world cups. I don't want Alok to come to the picture only for 2 matches like Sajidul, Dolar, Dickens etc. It just doesnt help our cricket much..

Nayeem and Riyad may be doing better in NCl/DPL. Question is in which positions and with what SR. An inform AK & Ash could be ideal to utilize the Batting PP & slog overs. We needed Nayeem/Riad, when our Top orer was sure failure. But things have changed. We don't need so stable players in 40-50th over, we need players who can really go after bowling at that stage.

Ahem, Nayeem's nickname is "Chokka Nayeem".

As for Riyad, well, he's got what it takes to go after the bowling in the late overs. He hits cleanly with plenty of power. Unfortunately, he's got this syndrome since his maiden Test century in Hamilton - he waits for the bad ball. And he's using this habit in the ODI format.

At times it seems he is using psychic power to have the bowler deliver half volleys to him. He also shows disappointment when he is not getting enough loose deliveries. In this IPL era of cricket, you've got to convert as many deliveries to runs as possible. He has got the reach and strength, he needs to bring more pro-active footwork in his ODI style to convert.

I think this an area where he might be behind Alok. Alok is using slog sweeps to good effect for converting otherwise attacking deliveries into runs. The biggest negative for Alok is his lack of international matches for a long time. If they pick him, he will need to play the warm up matches.

I don't think Alok will be picked, but stranger things have happened.

5. Rubel
6. Nazmul

Alok is ok, Ash should stay out of cricket. The only thing he'll be doing lower down the order is, end the game sooner than it suppose to be for the opponent.

Posting that one ton over and over won't make him any better than he is

The only utility that I can see is lower order hitting and I'm predicting him to fail massively at it a la Naeem.

well this is the official thread for Alok Kapali... so posting that video here is completely justified... Bashing Alok over and over in all threads won't also make him any worse!

GAZI TANK: 125-4 in 39 overs (Kapali 39 not out, Naeem 26 not out; Soumya 2-17)

Result: Gazi Tank won by six wickets.

Alok's problem is he fails to deliver and he's not actually a very good spinner.

However, he does have talent and I suspect the only reason why he is still in the mix is because siddons saw something in him in that ODI against India a couple of years ago (where he scored a hundred) and thinks this guy could be something special.

Kapali's domestic form has been at best mediocre and at worst woeful, yet he is still included in the training squad, that must be because someone in a position of influence fancies he can do something different.

I think he could make the final 15, though he doesn't deserve to on domestic form alone...

I like him and he is able to deliver big; but he is no Tendulkar and if he is out of form he should not be selected. If he is scoring consistently, he will be an asset for the team.
