Default How is Mohammed Mithun?

Guys,

We have seen Mushfique Rahim as a batsman and a keeper. He is just okay in keeping as of now but he is good as a test batsman rather than and ODI batsman. He is not an explosive player for ODI. ODI wicketkeeper batsman should be explosive as down oder firepower is important.

I was wondering if some could give me an insight into Mithu;s batting. I have heard is an explosive batsman like Tamim, dts kinda good news.

sangakkara isn't an explosive batsman but he's done well even when he was keeping, the thing is BD might be better off playing rahim as a specialist batsman in tests and have someone else keep wicket because he should be batting top 6 but in tests that's hard for a keeper to do. as for one-day cricket, rahim could bat top 6 but the thing is i'd have all of the allrounders above him and that means he needs to be explosive which he isn't, problem is he really struggles batting top 3 and they are the only top 6 spots open atm in ODIs.

now for mithun, haven't seen him bat but if you look at his strike rates and the amount of boundaries he gets then he does look like an explosive batsman, personally i prefer the ashraful/aftab type of exlposiveness to tamim's, tamim is still quite hit and miss (in an ugly way) and i wouldn't quite put him in the league of ashraful's and aftab's hitting ability. ashraful and aftab have really good hitting ability, they just struggle with other things, hopefully mithun has their hitting ability but knows how to build an innings consistently.

List A Match: 9
Catches: 10
Stump: 4

1.55 dismissals per match.

By looking at this stat, you have say he is a good keeper.

are we talking about Mithun Ali here? his list A strike rate very impressive but not first class. Yes, he can smack 6s

yes it should be mithun ali.

Mushfiq is good for batting in only tests.. even though he helps to stop the collapse of the usual bengali batsmen in ODI's.. dont know anything about Mithun though.. dont follow PCL.. BC is the first place i heard about him.. i know its stupid but more info about him would be really appreciated..

U know when you start expecting a bit too much about players no one has ever seen....u put them on such a high pedestal.......

........that when they fail to deliver.........you are crushed and want off with his head....

This thread is a tragedy in the works.....Build enough hype around him....and you will be sorry that you did.

"ura-dhura" hitters dont seem to do well in a T20, I remember tamim struggling badly in last T20 WC. Bangladesh is too thin on batting, and it is the batting that won the T20 matches. We needed atleast Aftab and Nazimuddin from the banned players.

Like to see how this Mithun and Shamsur plays, but with so few matches under their belt, its a big risk for Bd.

tbh the hype is already there, i don't have a problem with hype because it makes things more exciting, but just because someone is hyped doesn't mean people should want to fillet him if he doesn't succeed. if someone is hyped but fails we just have to accept that the search must continune....

Good innings by Mithun today when team was in trouble, underrated player, has been looking good since Asia Cup. I hope our MP Shaheb realizes the importance of having him in the side and not be obsessed over Sabbir

Mushfiq and Tamim are our best limited overs batsman. I don't know where you get that him not being good in ODI.

As for Mithun, he isn't an explosive batsman. A lot of our domestic batsmen start as big hitters until they start not getting runs and thus go for slower scoring rate. Mithun is good and can stabilize the middle-order and we don't have to over-rely on Mushfiq and Mahmudullah. As for his keeping, in case you are interested, he isn't that good to be the national team keeper.

Ashraful and Aftab themselves are what you call hit and miss. Tamim is more of an explosive batsman but nowadays he prefers to start slow.

Mithun seems to play that long innings in the middle which we hardly see from our batsman. They are all in t10 mode. He doesnt know how to accelerate just accumulate.

I still think it's only a matter of time pacers figure out which line-length to bowl to him (I would bowl fuller and closer to his body). With all those angled bat shots, he will never be a reliable option on faster pitches.

Would like to see consistency for at least 50+ innings before commenting. We had so many players starting well initially like Nasir, Shohag,Mossadek Abul,Anamul, Liton, Shabbir etc. but once their weakness were identified, they became easy pickings. Only Shakib, Tamim and Mushfiq seemed to have worked on their shortcomings and improved with time. In today's modern cricket where every ball is analyzed, just having talent is not enough, one has to continuously improve their game. Even if you see naturally gifted players like Kohli, their skills have improved over the years..

He had an hamstring injury which affected his batting, no need to go after him for failing to convert to 100. Instead go after the others who can't score double digits

Agree, lets start with the weakest link who can bowl a bit, next someone who creates nightmare with keeping
