Good to see Alok doing well in the NCL. He should be given an extended run in the team. The Australia match showed he's still rusty at the international level. It's normal though, SN is still not up to scratch with his batting and he's gotten many games now. Hope he can be our answer at the #7.

With Alok, now that list of "armchair allrounders" grows.

I just can't wait till they play all of Alok, Riyad, Naeem, Shuvo, and even Ash in the same XI. That's gonna piss me off soooo bad.

That is what i hope for too.... SN looked really rusty and nervous in his first couple of outings but he seems to have settled in nicely now... I hope we give a similar opportunity for Alok and hopefully allow him to bat higher so that he gets to play himself in a little bit... even though he didn't make runs against the aussies he didn't look out of depth... and that cut shot he played was pure class... I have faith in this guy.... Hopefully against Zimbabwe and later against Pakistan he can cement his spot ahead of Naeem

A national team recall and then a sudden burst of Kapali again.
Good show in the last National League match.
Too bad he missed the rare chance of scoring century in both innings of a match.

A little confidence, along with a ray of hope which seemed so faded, can take you so much further.

An inform, true to his potential Kapali can only mean good things for our team.

It seems like Alok is on form again. 134 in the ongoing match and 40 in the previous is a solid start to this NCL. We could do with a consistent Alok.

Rajin has done well too. Experienced ones are leading the way for Sylhet. What about Tapash!

Nadim,

He is not even 30 yet. In many countries batsman make international debut at that age. He and Aftab still could revive their careers. This two can be real assets for us as they bring natural flair and class to the side. Sure they have mental blocks or temperament issues. But BCB has also let them down. Ashraful to a certain extant too.

#6 in the run scoring charts so far with an average of a 121 with 1 century and a half century. I'd say he's done pretty well so far. He's gotta continue this consistency though. Also I believe that we should not just rule out players because remember, we're Bangladesh and not Australia or England. On top of that he's still 28 so he's got time to come back but he needs to continue to score well and then he has to perform in the A team before getting another chance again. Remember, we need more depth in our middle order.

As for Aftab, forget about playing for Bangladesh, he shouldn't be playing for Chittagong with the attitude he has. A 24 avg for FC's and only 1 century in 96 innings? Like I said before he's lucky to be even playing for Chittagong.

Age wise Very much possible in the test team. But not sure performance wise, if he has done enough yet to get a recall.

Ofcourse, I wasnt suggesting a Test recall for the likes of Alok or Aftab. Alok needs to finish the NCL as one of the top run getters. Then A tours and so on...

Aftab has lost all his confidence after being hit by the cricket ball and his tenant(!). And the binge feasting, too. So his rehab might take a little more time. But, he should be helped and guided back into the top flight again. BCB could do a lot here.

No point comparing BD with other countries...In BD, at 30 you are about to end your career rather than thinking of coming back. But. If Alok can do that, than its gd for us

And as far as i conern about Aftab, Let me ask you to decide

Our culture is to be blamed for this kind of monstrosity! Not just Aftab or Durjoy...


Btw, Tapash and Alok look to be in quite good shape.

No point blaming the culture, IT's all up to an individual. As a professional athlete, they cannot blame the culture because you couldn't kept fit themselves. Culture doesn't force you to eat rice, biyani sokal, dupur, shonda.

If discard player like Deccens, Alok, Rajin can stay in shape than why can't he? R they not living in the same culture?

If Aftab is not driven to be on the national team then why waste time with him? At least with Alok, he's worked hard on his game and has done pretty well on the domestic scene. Aftab just doesn't seem in to it. It's laughable that a specialist batsman has only 1 FC century in his career.

Bhaiyya, go a little easy on the poor chap. Not a very nice thing being hit by a ball or a Bharatiwala. He needs a proper rehab.

Dont forget even Mash had a Merv Huge bhuri
Btw, Rajin is an exceptional individual. Not many Bangladeshi are in his mould. I would have selected Rajin just for his work ethics and dedication -if, I was a selecta!

Rajin should have never been dropped to begin with back around 2007. That's when the buira's in our team got left behind (Bashar, Pilot, Golla). At the time I thought BCB would keep him in the loop for the longer version considering he was somewhat experienced. But after getting dropped, he never really helped his cause by having any breakout performance in NCL. He scored runs from time to time, but always here and there. Whether he will ever return in the national team or not, one thing that's for sure is he intends to be around cricket for a long long time.

His 'Dhokhin Shurma' cricket academy is slowly growing. I think down the line in few more years after the franchise FC league takes over, we will probably see Rajin take over the team as a coach or adviser, the kind of role Pilot is now playing for Rajshahi. He is already kind of doing that now, I know during the off season and few weeks before NCL starts he invites all local players in the squad and hold training camp on his own.

rajin looked a really good prospect against australia all those years ago, when we saw him in his most recent international matches he didn't look as good but he's always been a good domestic scorer.

I can still remember his swiftly timed nice cover drive which was destined to reach the fielder straight away without a run. Not to mention, handling the bouncers with chest..

Alex is an emo. No other way to explain his failures at the highest level. Never a favorite within BCB's Old Boys Network including at least 2 of our 3 national selectors since the Faruk-Koko dynasty, maybe he didn't get the run perhaps less deserving players had. But that sort of "injustice" doesn't mitigate the fact that he failed to take advantage of the chances he was given. Maybe he's not psychologically cut-out to sustain success at the highest level like most of our players.

I feel the same way with Alok. No questions about his talent but it's his ability to deal with pressure that's the problem. If he can get over his mental block then I could see him still serving Bangladesh cricket.
