Default A tribute to Abdur Razzak

With his current form and youngsters performing with lot of noises, I was hoping that Razzak won't be selected in the wc squad. I believe, the selectors made the right decision. Taijul and Arafat Sunny are both equally best at the moment and they deserve their chances one hundred percent.

I pay my due respect as a fan of BD cricket to this left arm master who played brilliantly in so many games and made us victorious in many of those. He filled the void after the greatest spinner of our history, Mohammad Rofique retired and carried the spin attack along with shakib. For that, I say Thank You Abdur Razzak

He has certainly been one of the Best ODI Spinners in Bangladesh Cricket History, if not the most successful so far barring 2014 and flat tracks.

some of the more defining, match winning performances of his career came in the 2007 world cup against India and South Africa, also against England in 2011 World cup. In fact, 9 out of 10 wins in our Post 2007 world cup history he has some vital contributions with keeping it tight and uncomfortable for the opposing batsmen.

Razzak now have time to think, disciplined himself, change his body language and work hard to get back his form. All the best and thank you for your contribution for Bangladesh cricket.

Thanks for the memories Razzak! But I think it was time for him to go as with age his bowling unfortunately deteriorated.

Will miss Mushfiqur saying bowling Lala!!!

BUT WILL NOT MISS Shamim continuously labeling him the Elder's statesman

He still has a lot to contribute on the 1st class circuit so I hope he will stick around and be the veteran just like the Tushar Imrans and Rafiques.

he is still 32. If he believes in himself and works hard to improve his accuracy and variation, he could still make a comeback. But in a country full of his kind but with better prospect, getting free rides had to stop someday

You have forgotten to thank Gazi and (Elias) Sunny mate!

Elder statesman served us well. A world class bowler on his day no doubt but he has slowly deteriorated with age. Thank you for your service Lala.

Thanks to Mr Razzak for your service. It was a long journey. We did not get a good service in long format from you. But it was a decent service in short format.

Thanks for this thread ma_o_mati. Razzak might've frustrated us a lot with his leg stump bowling, his lazy fielding and his lackluster batting but the guy did contribute to many of our key wins. He's got the most wickets for us in our wins against the G8. So the guy wasn't just a minnow Basher. He played well against all teams and his record reflects that.

Hes still 32 so it's not like his chances are done but you'd have to say, it'll be very hard for him to beat the likes of Taijul, Arafat, Jubair and when Gazi comes back. Hope he continues to play in domestic competitions and leads by example for our younger spinners. Best of luck to Razzak in his future

In all fairness, Gazi is no mug with the bat and He is a fighter. Who knows, if we have seen the last of them, at this point I think they can still be a force in domestic cricket.

He contributed a lot but it is time to move forward, as far as SLAs we've got taijul, arafat, shakib, elias, sajib and some other good prospects. We've also had gazi and jubair come through, riyad has become a better bowler, there are just too may talented spinners to choose from who have a lot more time left and with Razzak struggling to perform up to his former level I think it's a good time to think of the future.

Top ODI wicket taker, and should not be forgotten.

I think gazi selection still relies more of his bowling, even before his action was called his performance had started to fall away, but he's got the talent to be around the national team long term. Mahmudul is another off spinner maybe worth keeping an eye on, did well this DPL and can bat a bit as well and with riyad improving his bowling gazi now has a bit of competition for that off spinner position if the selectors want one.

His three wickets against Ind 2007 WC was priceless. Tendu, UV, and Harbi. 10 - 2 maidens 38/3.

32 but in BD years should be 34. So still few more years left if he wants to work for it. Else open a bowling school at Khulna.
