Default Is the pressure of Cap. getting to Basher?

Many people assume that Basher is our best batsman. But is he worth the captain. Is the pressure and responsibility of being a captain finally getting to him? I sincerely hope this under performance is about soon change or else he will soon be sacked and embarrased. something i am really not prepared to see.

thats the bottom line, that what matters.

When you go out to bat you intend on just batting and doing whats best for your team. When your batting you don't have to think about bowler rotation, field placements. All you have to do is bat! So I don't see how it should affect his batting.

Only 2 mathes and 3 innings has gone by, among which, only one innings was good for the whole Bangladesh team, and the other 2 are disasters.

So we can't yet judge Bashar the captain RIGHT NOW.

Default just an opinion!

Since Bashar became a captain his performance has deteriorated badly. I think he is thinking too much about wining a test match or something. He probably thinking that is why he was name a captain by BD board to win a match. If he continues to perform like this, I donít it a good idea to keep him as a captain for his sake and for Bangladesh as well.

PS: it is too early to say anything, but itís just an opinion.

Default Best Captain

I sincerely think Habibul Bashar is one of our better batesman (since Atahar Ali, Aminul and Nannu), but he does not have any demonestrated leadership ability. More over, he is often lucky while batting. if we look closely, Khaled Masud was our best captain. He always led from the front. Unlike our other captain, his own performance did not detoriate during his term. He is stable in his performance, one of our senior players and capable of scoring at least 20-30 runs on avarage (despite odd half centuries from our top orders, how many of them are as consistant as masud?). I think he is our best captain. Bring him back and let Bashar alone, to score only. Then there should be no excuse for his dismal performance.

I fully support your views.
I am gonna get whacked for this but since you opened the thread I will let it slip.
Masud should have gotten a temporary probation for his WC problems.
He is by far the best candidate for the job for these reasons:

1-Batsman-historically batsmen are still better captains. Wicketkeepres have been excellent models too.
2-plus age and experience .. he has seen it all.
3-his batting is not crucial, it is rear end. If he does not perform with the bat on a certain day the team will not go down.
4-He performs equally well both at ODI and Test.

Default Bashar needs time!

it realy is a tough job to stand up as a captain for a struggling team like ours.. not to mention the stress it causes!
he wil hopefully come back to his form with time.. but just one thought :
shud he be replaced further down in the batting order for the time being?
shud he be batting at 4 or 5 just to have some space to breath(and not to give him a feeilng tht he is our only run machine!)??

I disagree of mashud's inclusion as a captain. You all were judging his batting ability during his captaincy....but he at first is a wicket keeper. It is tough (not impossible though) to concentrate on what is going arround the field and the movement of each ball whether there is a chance at the same time. A batsman in my opinion can be the best choice as a batsman (iff...he can keep his own form) and secondly I would go for a baller who is aggrasive in nature (what unfortunately BD doesn't have any).....


So in a nutshell, I am okaying the situation of as it is right now. If you need to have a real captain...wait for some years...Rajin is coming.

I agree with this. It's way too early. He needs to ease into his duties as captain. we'll see after a few more matches.

I agree with Sheshprohor.

If Pilot is the captain again, then we will lose to ICC associate teams again - that's as simple as that, even if we forget the facts that most of the players did not like Pilot's bashing on them, and all those fixing and non-fixing sagas.

Default Captain

It is not a matter of time only. A lot depends on natural leadership abilty and instinct. Otherwise Tendulker would have been the Indian Captain for as llong as he is in the team. look at Lara, one of the best batsman of our time but as a captain he is possibly worse than Khalaed Mahmood. He destroyed the intigrity of WI team when courtney Walsh and Carl Hooper wre captains, and the team has not recovered. For existing bangladeshi players, Masud, though not perfect is still the better person for captaincy. Otherwise bring back Aminul.

Bashar is respected by the players, he is by far the best batsman in the team and with Rafique, jointly our best player. Believe me he will soon recover, all good players do. So give him time, captincy is not easy.

Default Good old days

From the second innnings of the Darwin test to the first innings at Multan, Bashar was either the top scorer or the second highest scorer in all the eight innings.

In all the tests in 2003 till the first innings as Multan, he was no.1 or 2 in 11 of the 13 innings.

In the 8 innings since then he was never the top scorer, and was the second highest twice (58 & 21) . The other six innings were 3, 2, 18, 0, 0 and 4.

Pressure getting to Bashar ? Maybe ?

But so what ?? He is our captain, our new captain, and we should be 100% behind him !!

Honestly, the BD cricket team's captain probably has the hardest job in Bangladesh ! If I were in his shoes, I would turn around and tell the fans- FO !! He is not accountable to the fans.

I really didn't want Bashar as our captain - but never had a better alternative. Khaled Mahmud was probably the best so far, but we know the baggage he was carrying. Rafique would have been ideal in the sense that his perfo would have been less impacted, but who knows what his drawbacks he might have had - like being a snoozer whenever he wasn't bowling.

So this is what I will be doing, from my point of view - I will be praying really hard for Bashar, and hope that he comes out of the rut very very soon.
