Default Raqibul's bowling discussion & the day he amazed himself by getting his only test wicket

It was a match India won by 10 wickets. However, it shall remain cozy in someone's memory for all the wrong reasons. That person of course is Raqibul Hasan when he got himself the dangerous Dhoni's wicket. Here is Cricinfo:

Quote:
132.6
Raqibul Hasan to Dhoni, OUT, Dhoni stretches forward to defend a short of length ball, which turns past his bat, Mushfiqur has the bails off in a jiffy, did Dhoni get his back leg into the crease in time? Nope, it was on the line, Dhoni is gone for 89

MS Dhoni st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Raqibul Hasan 89 (170m 167b 9x4 2x6) SR: 53.29
At 544/8 India would see Raqibul Hasan's best figure of 1-1-0-1on that day.

Following is his bowling career summary


Career averages

Here is his last night's spell:

Quote:
5.1
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, flighted ball outside off, not much turn, eased into the covers off the front foot.
35.2
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, full toss on middle and leg line, driven to long-on for a single.
35.3
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, 2 runs, he's giving it a bit too much air for the pace he's operating at. Flighted well outside off, driven into the covers for a couple.
35.4
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, goes much wider outside off, Bravo doesn't play it.
35.5
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, 1 run, a fine fifty for Bravo. In the space of some 5 overs of counterattack, he's pushed Bangladesh almost out of the game. Short ball outside off, and he cuts it away square for a single.
35.6
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, turning away from outside off, played into the covers.
West Indies 105/2 Raqibul Hasan 1-0-4-0
37.1
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, full ball on the pads, whipped to midwicket on the full for one.
37.2
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, some four feet outside off. Any wider and it would have been called.
37.3
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, 1 run, tossed up closer to the batsman this time, he leans out to drive to long-off for one.
37.4
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, full again on leg stump, Kirk drives down the ground for a single.
37.5
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, 1 run, he's over-pitching them with Christmas generosity. Bravo drives to deep cover for a single. Uppish, but no one to catch the ball.
37.6
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, Kirk quietly turns a ball to midwicket for a single.
West Indies 114/2 Raqibul Hasan 2-0-9-0
39.1
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, flighted into the rough from round the stumps and the ball simply dies as Bravo leaves, and hits Rahim on his pads.
39.2
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, shorter ball, Bravo covers the line and defends.
39.3
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, legbreak comes in from wide of the off stump, and Bravo leaves well. It buzzes more than a foot away from the timber.
39.4
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, thrown up even wider outside off, easy leave for Bravo.
39.5
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, 1 run, flighted on the pads, driven to long-on for a single.

41.1
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, Kirk defends a full ball down the pitch.
41.2
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, best ball of the session, and it comes from a part-timer. In drift, sharp spin and bounce, leaves Kirk befuddled as he feels for it from the crease. He did well to pull the bat in at the last moment.
41.3
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, no run, now he slides down the leg side, Kirk misses the sweep.
41.4
Raqibul Hasan to KA Edwards, 1 run, flighted for the drive, Kirk goes with the turn into the covers.
41.5
Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, flighted on middle and off, Bravo gets forward to defend it down the track.

Raqibul Hasan to Bravo, no run, gets forward again and defends a full ball turning in from outside off.
West Indies 130/2 Raqibul Hasan 4-0-12-0

Oct 30, West Indies 2011 tour of Bangladesh


I think we can safely say his bowling is as boring as his batting. May be we can further safely conclude, Raqibul Hasan is a boring man himself.
