Angry Why Selector's Why

I just don't understand why selectors keep picking Mashrafe. He is already being labeled as expensive bowler in T20 format. His career economy rate 8.49 even after 22 matches. FFS Why he even bother to bowl the last over, when Arafat Sunny had a over left.


Same goes with Sohag Gazi, so far he played 6 T20 matches economy rate - 8.59 and bowling average 47.25. And with this stats he is being auto selected in every single match. I think, Bangladesh selectors should think of some alternatives.

Our selectors, like the players themselves are not professional at all.

I don't know why they choose Gazi over Sabbir or Riyad. Shabbir could have given them the Pop while Riyad could have given them the much needed bowling enconomy. Out of all the spinners of both sides (in this game), only gazi failed big time.


About Mashrafee, I don't know why he cose to ball himself and gazi in five consicutive overs. In t20, unless a bowler is dominating (which rearly happens), you don't let your same bolwer bowl three consicutive overs. And defintely not 2 consicutive overs of your struggling bowler at power play when he is already bombed in 1st over. You cahnge the bowlers quite often, and that removes the prectibility of a bowler to attacking batsman. One or two dot balls an over (intead of starting with a 4 or a 6) makes all the differences.

Plus don't know why he failed to used Arafat's 4th over. Arafat was relatively economical as well as getting wickets.

What I can say about Ananmul. Hope he will understand better in future what is expected out of him in T20. Unlike ODI, T20 progress rapidly and he need to adjust rapidly based on situation. Knowing the target and knowing that we have so many wickets left and falling behind the RR, he looked like he played a little bit slow, more like a selfish player until at the end. I hope he doesn't turn out another selfish player.

No complain about Mithun with the bat. This is his first game, and he tried his best to adjust to the team's need and he failed. Atleast his intend was not selfish.


I hope selectors and the captain as well as some of the players learn form their mistake and make those some adjustment so that we win the 2nd T20. Even with all those mistakes, it was so close. So you don;t need to make drastic changes, just few adjustment here and there will give us the win.

I have a different opinion. Mash rotated the bowlers properly.

However, the major flaw was Mashrafee not giving an extra over to Sunny who bowled quite well whereas he bowled himself in the last over when could have gone with ATG fast bowler Rubel Hossain.

Not finishing the quota of Arafat was criminal. Although, Mash did okay with the ball picking up two important wickets but he is simply not learning how to bowl in T20. Taking the pace off or slower balls are important but if you bowl FIVE slow balls in an over international batters will not have problems lining you up. Also, with Mash´s reduced pace, bowling two feet wide on the off-stump and on a good length asking to be spanked for 4s and 6s.

Perhaps, Mash will never be able to address this major problems of his in T20! Running the risk of stating the obvious he has become just a one trick pony. And, T20 isn´t a place for those.

Btw, more importantly, selectors should be quizzed:

- As to why they picked a very inconsistent "batsman" whose technique is blind slogging -jodi laiggya jai- a la Ziaur Gayle and temperament ZERO over, arguably, the best T20 batsman in the country Shabbir rahman?

-Do we need 2 wicket keepers bats in a T20?

-Why Mominul and Riyad dropped (esp. in absense of Mushy)?

Is Shabbir part of the plan for the WC and if yes, why isn´t he afforded all the chances he can get before the all important tourney? Perhaps, two-overs-a-match Farhad Reza or one-who-can´t-hold-a-bat-nor-can-keep-wicket "flash in a pan" Mithun are considered genuine prospects?

The worst thing they did was picking both Vijay & Mithun.
They should have picked Vijay as WK-batsman and picked alrounder Ryad or batsman Momin in place of Mithun.
We were clearly one batsman short, already we don't have Mushy who was in brilliant touch in all forms, and we bring in non reliable players like Mithun & Phorhad Reja, wth?

Yes Mash isnt a great T20 bowler.... Name one seamer from Bangladesh that you think is better? Dont bother looking for stats....

The only thing about Mash i didnt like was his 3rd over straight. True, he isnt someone that should bowl a lot during death but he could have easily bowled an over during the middle overs rather than bowling a 3 over spell in the beginning. He bowled well yesterday and if it wasnt for the 6 in the last over, it would have been a solid death over performance

Farhad Reza is not the answer to anything. No matter how many wickets he gets in domestic cricket. I can't believe at one point we thought he was an all rounder. Can't bowl, can't bat. I don't know why he was included in the squad, when we already had 2 fast bowlers. I hope Shabbir gets the nod ahead of him for the 2nd T20 match.

I would drop Mithun and have Shamsur or Anamul keep. In T20 you don't necessarily have to have a designated specialist but shaky keeper.

Would also drop Farhad and bring Riyadh since he is more seasoned campaigner.

In terms of Gazis bowling; though I agree he's been declining but we need to understand he had to open the bowling on a nicely rolled pitch which may have been easy for batting at the beginning. He did bowl better in his returning over.

I am surprised no one mentioned Milon for the T20 team. He is the best clean hitter of the cricket ball Bangladesh have got. My T20 XI would be:

1. Tamim
2. Anamul
3. Shamsur
4. Shakib
5. Mushy
6. Nasir
7. Milon
8. Gazi
9. Mashrafe
10. Arafat/Razzak
11. Rubel

T20 line up should be like this:

Tamim
Anamul
Samsur
Shakib
Nasir
Shabbir/gazi
Feza (give him a chance or two since coming back after long time)
Mashrafee
Gazi/shabbir
Arafat
Rubel/al amin

Player like riyadh will not do much for T20. Gazi is much better hitting when needed then Riyadh. Gazi can bring up bit earlier on batting line up even before shabbir.

You implying that Gazi is a better bat or a hitter than Riyad? How and why? I know the sissyness of Mullah and all...but, still. I´m at a loss.

I would take out Mithun and Forhad. Anamul can keep instead and Forhad cannot play international.

again the squad looks unbalanced. When we have shakib in the line up we can afford to add that extra batsman instead of having four specialist bowlers.
Today our last 5 batsman was Al Amin, Rubel, Sunny, Gazi and Ryad.
All of them are hopeless with the bat when it counts. That is too long a tail for an incosistent batting lineup like ours. We are better off picking 7-8 batsman and expecting part timers to bowl us 10 overs.
