Are there any videos of Ziaur Rahman batting? Would love to see the bold strokeplay that I'm hearing about. Excited about this guy, hopefully some guidance will make him a fixture in this side.

Ohh this is not a thread about the shaheed President Zia ur Rahman...I thought it should have been in the forget cricket section....

As Shakibrulz said, it is very handy to have a blaster in your team, and I think the argument extends to the ODI side as well. And remember, he is not just a slogger, he is good for 4-5 overs in the ODI games as well. So, instead of putting all the promising batsmen of Bangladesh at no.8, we should seriously consider him at no.8 in ODIs and give him a decent run.
A quickfire 30-40 can be the difference between a win, and a 'so close'

Didn't think he had the capability ( after continuous swing and miss in Zim tour) ... but he seems to know how to hit them sixes

Well done. Hopefully, he keeps playing like this.

We needed a power hitter down the order and seemed to have finally found 1. In the shorter formats he's definitely useful.

I have seen Zia Batting in few matches including BPL.He has some deficiency in shots.Still he is a power hitter we were looking for a long time.He have just came to international cricket.He will get lot of time to adjust himself for the national team.I hope he will do it and finish matches for us.Already he have proved that he is a must member in our T20 team.
Lot of person here thinking about his inclusion in ODI.In ODI its a bit tougher for him.But he will warm up the beanch no doubt.If he can prove his worth in ODI that will be a huge achievement for us.He is a finisher no doubt.

^^^It's too early to judge^^^ He is playing well Just for the Last Match!

In Slow Pitch, He might struggle! Let's wait and see.

Keep Him in T20 Until properly Developed His Stroke Making in all sort of Pitches.

In fast wicket he is doing good.It is a good sign cause he have greater chance to do good in slow tracks and home condition.In slow tracks less foot movement is needed.

that is True for players like: Gayle, Pollard, Afridi and etc!

Ziaur Rahman is the Opposite! I hope he will Improve!

So far His weakness has been Slow Pitch!

its also wrong to say he does well in fast wicket just because of that one Match!

G.Ah is a hit-or-miss player but I won't complain as long as he keeps clearing the ropes. That being said, I don't think his slogging would clear too many against quality bowlers likely to figure out his extremely limited repertoire quickly enough. I won't bet on him sustaining success at this level. Both Farhad Reza and Nazmul Hossain Milion are more creative, cleaner hitters of the long ball at their respective best, but like G.Ah, I won't bet on them either.

Shabbir Rahman Rumman is the genuine finisher we'd be looking at in the future.

But I do love his Baper Byata-type intent. A sissy he ain't, that's for sure.

In tomorrow's match he will surely be tested by some body line bouncers. Irish missed this trick in the last game and they kept bowling length deliveries to him.

We r praising.him now that he played a very good inn but hope we.wont do the opposite if tmmrrw he phails.
Its very hard to click every time in this format as u dont get engh time to settle down specially the lower order like Zia who are expected to score at a 180+SR.

He has been playing reasonably well since Zim series. He can always fail tomorrow, that's a part of the game. If he can maintain his consistency ... Those aren't big issue.

This guy his tall and huge. Those 40x17 were all power hits. We don't have one single power hitter in the team. Shabbir Rahman looks like just another ex "closer," now test specialist, mora Naeem.

I can see they are getting carried away with Zia and as usual bring him into test.

I would keep him where he is, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Alhamdulillah! our batting lineup seems to have found a new-found stability. Today remember he didn't bat until the end. We really do not want to ruin such a fine finisher. a power hitter like him is needed late down the order, at best I don't think he should bat in top 5, but that's just my opinion.

if only it was broadcasted then i would be able to see if Ziaur is actually middling the ball or if he is slogging blindly. Then i could actually make a judgement.

BCB MEDIA RELEASE

‘I back my natural game’: Ziaur Rahman

Sunday, 16 September 2012

COLOMBO – Ziaur Rahman has come in with a reputation at the ICC WT20. He is expected up the ante as far as Bangladesh’s middle overs batting is concerned and the big-hitting man from Khulna is relishing the challenge:

His role in the Bangladesh team
As far as I am concerned my job is to play according to the state of the game and not going all out from the word go. Ofcourse if the situation demands I would look for ways to hit the ball for boundaries but sensible batting is always the key. You don’t need to smack every ball for a four or a six. An over boundary and few singles still gives you 10/11 runs in an over. Maybe because my strokes have power that’s why people think I will start blasting sixes from the very beginning but that’s not always the case. For example we lost three wickets for five runs in Saturday’s practice game at one stage and I needed to be patient at that time. Another day we may need quick runs and I will play my natural game.

His memories of the 2007 World T20 and the fact that he has a settled position in the Bangladesh middle order now
In 2007 I was more of a pace bowler who could use the long handle. I was selected as the third option seamer probably but it was tough to get into the side with Masrafe (Mortaza), (Syed) Rasel and Farhad Reza playing. Now I see myself more as a batsman and I have been given another opportunity. I am really looking forward to this tournament as we have done quite well in the lead up to the WT20 and have played a lot of Twenty20 matches.

His transformation
My fast bowling ambitions had to be sacrificed due to injuries but I was given a new lease of life at my Dhaka Premier Division club this season by coach Khaled Mahmud. He asked me to open the batting and I did that throughout the season and was successful. I played my natural game and that is what has brought me here. It takes a lot of courage and conviction to ask someone who has not done it before to open the batting in Bangladesh’s main competition. I am indebted to the coach for having that faith in me.

Whether he feels the pressure of international cricket
Not really. I have never been in awe of my surroundings. It’s a round ball for everyone and every batsman feels the same kind of pressure for the first couple of deliveries. I enjoy the role I have and my natural style is something I back hundred percent. If I get success It will be through my own style.

The T20 specialist’s tag
Well, I don’t look at it like that. I am a regular for the Khulna Division team in the first class competition. I also play one day games as an opener. I would prefer to be considered as a batsman who loves playing all versions of the game with a positive intent.
