Default 'Shakib was alright'

Shakib was alright'

NEXT IN LINE? Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim talks to reporters after the Tigers' practice session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday. After Shakib Al Hasan's removal from the captaincy, the man from Bogra could be next in line to take over the reins. Photo: AFPSports Reporter
After the hurriedly taken decision of sacking Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal from the posts of captain and vice-captain, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been facing a dilemma in choosing their successors with the next home series against West Indies knocking at the door.
It's now all but clear that the board has taken the decision whimsically, not only without examining in detail the reasons behind the Zimbabwe tour debacle, but also without having given any thought about what would happen next.
Except wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim none can be considered for the hot seat as the places of senior players like Mohammad Ashraful, Shahriar Nafees and Abdur Razzak are not even assured in the playing eleven.
So, the man from Bogra is the most likely candidate for the captaincy. Interestingly the little man lost the vice-captaincy reportedly for the same reason for which Shakib and Tamim have been removed -- an attitude problem.
And under these circumstances Mushfiqur's words took special significance when he talked to the media yesterday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. Mushfiqur echoed the sentiments of his coach, Stuart Law, while talking about discipline in the team and Shakib's captaincy, apparently raising questions about the merit of the board's decision.
Mushfiqur showered praises on captain Shakib. "He [Shakib] is our key player and it's always an advantage for a performer to lead the team. He was excellent as a captain and performed with the bat, ball and also he was superb in his fielding. He always motivated us as a captain," said Mushfiqur.
The young man, whose batting was one of the few positives in an otherwise disastrous Zimbabwe tour, threw a challenge when asked about the issue of indiscipline in the team by saying, "You can understand how disciplined we are as a team if you travel with the other teams in the world. As our coach said we are the most disciplined side both on and off the field."
From his position it was not possible for him to comment on the board's decision and that's why he said: "It was a board decision [to remove Shakib and Tamim] and we have to respect it. But as we repeatedly said we have been playing good cricket for the last two years, but we could not perform well in Zimbabwe."
Mushfiqur was however clear about the reasons behind the poor showing in Zimbabwe despite the fact that the board made Shakib and Tamim the scapegoat for the failure.
"Our batting and fielding was poor and that was the reason behind the failure in Zimbabwe and I don't think there was anything else other than that behind the debacle. There were some individual performances but as a team we could not perform well in the last tour, so our main target would be to perform well as a team against the West Indies," said Mushfiqur.
He also said that he was little bothered about the whisperings that were going on about him becoming the new captain; instead he was focusing on the coming tour against the West Indies, who will arrive in Dhaka on October 4 to play one T20, two Tests and three one-day internationals.
"I am also hearing it from media but my main target is to perform well in the coming series and as a team we are also looking forward to the next assignment. I will try my best if it [captaincy] comes my way," said a confident Mushfiqur.

Well, the ball is in the BCB's court right now. Lack of leadership within BCB is costing us too much.

Good one zman ^.
It clearly shows the Board was waiting to sack Shakib for a long time. It just they couldn't do it because of the results.

Another example of twisted reporting from Kaler Kontho:

তাঁর এ সতীর্থের বিরুদ্ধে শৃঙ্খলাভঙ্গের নানা অভিযোগও আছে। তামিমকে সঙ্গে নিয়ে দলের মধ্যে অস্থির পরিবেশ তৈরি করে রাখার অভিযোগই শোনা গেছে সবচেয়ে বেশি। তবে এগুলো এমন স্পর্শকাতর বিষয় যে সাধারণত দলের কেউই বলেন না যে, 'হ্যাঁ, আপনারা ঠিকই বলেছেন, সবই ঠিক।' তার ওপর নানা বিতর্কে কোড অব কন্ডাক্টের শৃঙ্খলটা এখন আরো কঠোর। তাই সিংহ ভাগই অস্বীকার করেন, করলেন মুশফিকও, 'আমার মনে হয় আপনারা যদি অন্য কোনো টিমের সঙ্গে ট্রাভেল করেন, তাহলে সবচেয়ে ভালো বুঝতে পারবেন। আমার মতে আমাদের মতো ডিসিপ্লিনড টিম আর কোথাও নেই।'

Good on Mushfiq for being honest and forthright with his responses. Hopefully, like Shakib, the pressures and distractions of captaincy with elevate his performance both as a wicketkeeper and batsman. He certainly has the right credentials. Sangakarra and Dhoni are two examples of very successful wicket-keeping skippers he can look to for inspiration - not that he lacks any. Best of luck to him!

Now, this desperate KK guy delivers S*** from both of his deliverable ends (high and low). I am humble to propose a "Moricher Gura" treatment in his appropriate end.

A total waste of time IMO.
