Default Is Mortaza fit for the team

Mortaza is not playing good. Other fast bowlers are better than him. Is it time to drop him?

He still has many things to offer. Leadership. This can not be measured. This is his team now.

Not Ha Bashar parrot leadership kind.

Mash the captain is still much better than any other option we have. As long as he accepts that role and doesn't worry about bowling out his quota every time, it'll help the team and help extend his career. For instance his captaincy has been exceptional today while his bowling has been horrible.

I agree partially. Exceptional part of course.

When all of his options could NOT break the biggest partnership, he did it. Can't say horrible because of one over where he gave 10 runs. All main bowlers got one expensive over.

Mortaza bowling let Pakistan got back in the game. All the bowlers make it tight on Pakistan and he comes and release the pressure.

Why Taskin and Rubel is not allowed to bowl their quota when they are bowling so good. Very bad captain.

ONLY leadership does not warrant you a place in the national team. First your performance. Show me what Mashrafe did. His bowling is going down day by day. Its not even funny. This is cricket and national team. You cant live on past glory. I have soft corner for Mashrafe because he is a tiger and he gives his heart everytime he plays. But his body is not fit enough. He has no pace whatsoever. It hurts my eyes when he bowls. Its time to retire on high. The greatest warrior of BD. Please retire.

End of 22 overs. Pak 77/5. End of 38th over Pak 149/5.
In these middle overs (middle overs)
Arafat got 5 overs
Shakib got 4 overs
Riyad got 2 overs
Taskin got 2 overs
Rubel got 2 overs

None could break the partnership. NONE. Don't tell me no one got a chance to break the partnership.

Who comes to rescue? Who breaks the partnership?

Give him some credit. Don't be a hater.

Mash needs to let Rubel and Taksin lead with the new ball. Mash just doesn't have the pace to cause any issues early on. He has to accept that he will have to focus on containing batsman and keep things tight to get wicket. I remember in the world cup at one point Mash was bowling in the range of 120-130, that's just not good enough with the new ball these days.

People need to back off! Mashrafe earned the right to get out in his own terms. He is the best thing that ever happened to BD since the invention of sliced bread (or whatever the bd version of it is).

মাশরাফির কথা ভাবুন। সাতবার, সা-তবার হাঁটুতে অস্ত্রোপচার হয়েছে। আর একটা হাঁটুর ইনজুরি শেষ করে দিতে পারে ক্যারিয়ারটাই, এমনকি সুস্থভাবে হাঁটাচলা করার ক্ষমতাও। কিন্তু মাশরাফির তাতে পরোয়া নেই। বরং তিনি দলের বাকিদের কাছে এই বার্তা ছড়িয়ে দিতে চান, দরকার হলে জীবন দিয়ে দেব। দরকার হলে হাঁটুতে ৮ নম্বর অস্ত্রোপচারটাও হবে। দরকার হলে হুইলচেয়ারে বসব। বিশ্বকাপের সময় বলেছিলেন, ‘রক্তের শেষ বিন্দু দিয়ে চেষ্টা করব।’
এটা স্রেফ কথার কথা না। গত বিশ্বকাপ টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপ খেলে খেলছেন চড়া মূল্য দিয়ে। কদিন পর পর হাঁটুতে জমা তরল সিরিঞ্জের মোটা সুচ ঢুকিয়ে টেনে বের করে নিতে হয়েছে। প্রত্যেকবার সেই একই কষ্ট! আমি কল্পনায় দেখি, সিরিঞ্জ ঢোকানো হচ্ছে, দাঁতে দাঁত চেপে আছেন মাশরাফি। কিন্তু পারছেন না কষ্ট সইতে। মাগো বলে তীব্র চিৎকার করে উঠছেন।
অন্য কেউ হলে এত দিনে অন্য রাস্তা মাপত। কিন্তু মাশরাফি খেলার আশা ছাড়েন না। বলেন, ‘ক্রিকেটের প্রতি মায়াটা ছাড়তে পারি না যে! আর দেশের জন্য কিছু করার কত বড় সুযোগ এটা। দেশের হয়ে আর খেলব না, এটা ভাবতেই পারি না।’
দেশের কথাও ভাববেন তামিম। দেশের চেয়ে বড় আর কী আছে? দেশটাও যে ‘মা’!

some of you bandwagoners need to buzz off and need to do a better job remembering performances beyond 2 games. Mashrafe was the best bowler for the entire Zimbabwe series. He was the best bowler against Afghanistan, he was the better bowler against Sri Lanka. He got the crucial wickets against England. Today, he got the break through when all the "fit for the team players" failed. Mashrafe is still a better startup bowler than Taskin who cant pitch it up very often and Rubel who doesnt have the accuracy as Mash. Mashrafe with his 120K deliveries got more wickets than Rubel or Taskin did with their high 140 ones. I understand the excitement to towards Rubel and Taskin but saying Mashrafe isnt as good as them...is simply a bad joke.

Mashrafe always breaks big partnerships. Did it in the England game and today recently. He needs to finish off his overs in the middle though and let Rubel and Taskin take the new ball.

He is also clearly the best captain we have. Lay off him.

On top of that he is the best captain we have. He had a slip in place for Rubel's first wkt. Absolutely crucial. He is still no stephen fleming but he will do for now.

What about Abul? I feel like taking off my eyes when I see him play!

Mash can't be let go. No sir. He reminds me of Shaun Pollock, that impeccable line and length WHEN he wants to. Not a good option for the death from what we've seen in the past. But many a times, he has bagged us wickets early on.

And there you go, those two things I just stated are enough reasons to keep him in. Because not every pacer has wicket taking ability (case in point: Abul), and not every pacer can tease batsmen with line and length (examples: all the slingers of the world out there whose forte is yorkers).

yes

The bigger question is whether Mashrafe deserves a better team. I want someone to go through 7 surgeries on his knee yet being the prime pacer for the team, an influential leader and also a slogger at the end.
