Default The Official Alok Kapali Thread

Alok Kapali is, undoubtedly, one of the most gifted cricketers that have graced our cricket. For many a reason -both known and unknown- he hasn't done any justice to his immense talent so far. But, I firmly believe Alok will shine, Insha Allah. He is simply too good not to. No sight better than an on-song Alok Kapali. So much class and elegance.

Alok is very similar in many regards to enigmatic Mr. Mohammad Ashraful Matin. They are both monstrously talented and equally fragile in mental fortitude. In addressing and conquering this mammoth setback lies the ultimate test of character. With a little bit of good fortune and great dedication Alok will rise to great hight and so will Ashraful. Age is still on their side.

I remember back in 2002 Champions Trophy how he dug out against the then invincibles Aus, but no one knew him back then.....in 2008 people then realized why we 'used' to talk about him......leaving the ind bowling attack virtually toothless in Karachi.....yes Bancricfan....sad, but these cricketersrom the previous lot havent been able to transform that potential....a completely different case with the current bunch we've got.......hopefully, they'll turn over a new leaf sooner rather than later

sorry to say but Alok doesn't deserve an official thread.
official threads are opened for Successful(internationaly) & busy cricketers.

Right on. Alok Kapali hasn't done ANYTHING in my eyes that lets him have a thread like this. One ODI century against the Indian bowling attack in a complete batting pitch means nothing.

Official threads should be for players who have interesting lives outside of cricket and are constantly in the news. So in my view only Shakib, Mashrafe, Tamim, Ashraful and maybe Razzak deserve their own threads.

But since it has been opened I'd like to give kudos to Alok for his excellent unbeaten knock of 60-odd off some 30 balls against MSC. If he can do that more often and regularly chip in with 30s at more than a run a ball he should definitely be considered ahead of Naeem and Riyad while Shabbir and Nasir keep developing.

Someone 'most selfish', someone 'most gifted'!

absolutely agreed brother..he dont deserve an official thread ,no way..i strongly believe that he has serious commitment issue..yes its true that he is a "gifted,promising,talented" blah blah blah, but nothing can take away the fact that he has no commitment,no seriousness when it comes playing for the country.I think after ashraful he has given most chance even though he had no form whatsoever.Look at Collingwood,he never tagged as talented.But its his seriousness,fighting spirit that had brought him so far.Give chance alok his team..see he will act like he just "deserve" this and waste it very firmly..rather i would like to see Sabbir...(as a twelfth man of course,every player should carry water at least for six months before playing fr the country.....

Very elegant player... too bad he left for ICL just after scoring that brilliantly paced century against India in the Asia Cup... Now the way back to the national side will be as hard as ever considering so many regular performers are waiting in line... Personally I would love to see him and also Nazimuddin given a chance at least in the T-20 side... in place of Rockibul and Kayes....

I agree with you what you have said about ALok.I believe too he is not finished yet!

Nice to see at last someone opened a thread for ALOK, now we have place where to bash him or praise him.. Good luck ALOK !!

Kapali has to be in the upcoming worldcup, bdesh need a good finisher/hitter down the order who can play quickfire innings facing less-balls! Mahmudullah and "chokka" naeem are both pathetic at it down the order. if kapali does get included i belive he will come great! since 2k8 he has matured as a player, he is a much better confident player now; he has much more better self-belief now. u all seen/saw kapali has showd in icl; he's a changed player after icl experience and success. Bcb need to think abit more wise!

Why even consider a player who can no longer dominate in domestic competitions? What have been his achievements over the past 12 months?

Both he and Ash are completely undeserving of spots in the national side.

I think Hannan Sarkar deserve another chance. He dug in against Australia in 2004. It does not matter what he did in last 7 years. But I think he deserves to be in WC squad.

And BTW, where is his official thread?

Alok's scores so far in the DPL has been 50(60), 1(6), 2(10), 0(1)*, 63(35) which averages out to a 29 with a SR of a 113.7. Don't know what he scored in the Jan 5th game so didn't include that. My problem with that is he's still proving to be inconsistent in his scores which has always been my knock against him. Ya he's a very talented batsman who looks so good when on song and has good qualities but he's got to be more consistent. An average of a 29 should not get him in to the national team for the WC.

Stats can be deciving...he is batting lower down the order...either when team is in trouble or needs some quick runs....
He is a match winner, we dont have too many of them in our bd team...

At the times he got out it was in the beginning of the innings when he got out at 1 and 2.

I just calculated the SR for Alok so far and in that department he's been very solid. He's got a few more games to play so let's what he can muster up.
