I try to be thoughtful about my cricket and go to local matches but am neither an expert nor infallible.
Obviously I rate Bijauy VERY highly, higher than other players I also rated highly ever since I started my career here at BC. Some of them -- M
al, and to a LESSER extent Imr
n and Dhim
n -- let me down. Others -- Shakib, Mushfique (batting only), Post-Salahuddin Tamim, Rubel and Nasir -- did not. Although I never thought they were crap, I've been pleasantly surprised by Riyad, Shuhash and nowadays Sunny. That being said, Shuhash has begun to disappoint.
On the other hand, genuinely crappy players like G
ibul, MS Sh
bho and now Nazim
ddin have never failed me.
So as you can see, it has been a mixed bag of prediction success and there is no reason why things should dramatically tilt one way or another.
I rate Bijauy and Shubhagauto very highly now with Bijauy even higher than M
tin, the one to have received my highest rating before he came along. I'm rating Hom at a slightly lower level at par with Al
b, and N
al before I was forced to give up on them.
Now, these guys can prove me right, or they may force me to write their names with a "
" emoticon, but I love what I've seen in these guys over the last 2-3 years, and strongly feel each has what it takes to succeed at the highest level, and then sustain that success over time. Since they have either just started their ODI career and or would get a shot soon, I reckon they'll get those averages easily through sustained success. They have the intelligence, the desire, hand-eye coordination and the temperament to do just that. Bijauy especially is that special a player and we'll see him at his best soon InshAllah.
Now, I don't like using the "
" emoticon any more than you enjoy seeing it in my posts, so I've become a lot more careful about my predictions. For example, I need more time before making any prediction of Shoummo, Munna, Shaujeeb, Shouraubh, Ratul, Shubhashish, KI Rabbi and Fazle Rabbi although from what I've seen of them with my own eyes, they all have tremendous promise because each appears a class apart in the domestics. I'm talking about at least 2-3 years of actual, not purely statistical observation here. Now I'm looking forward to observing Raju, Rony and Shoikot from the scapegoated U19s.
