Default NEWS-VIEWS-PREP For Series Against WI

This is probably going to be the biggest event of BD Cricket in this year. This is a complete series with 3 test, 5 ODIs and 1 T20 against an ICC top 8 Team. Considering that they are the team just ahead of us in Ranking, this should prove where we stand. We have the home advantage and that should even out the difference between these two teams.

Expecting a good contest against WI in this series. WI players are quiet focused and have already started talking about the series immediately after winning the T20 WC beating Srilanka.

Are we taking it, that seriously? Our coach is on leave, as we hear that he is stopping whatever spin bowling practices the team planned. We aren't yet hearing,when the team will start practicing, the NCL doesn't look to be starting as planned on 14 oct. if we are caught un-aware by WI in this series, if we fail to compete in tests and ODIs against WI, we will surely have tough time justifying our progress that we all had been almost certain after the Asia Cup. So this series will also confirm if our Asia Cup performance was fluke or genuine.

And we shouldn't forget that the last time we visited WI while the WI players were on strike and we won convincingly against them. Many of us felt that we could have won it even if their players weren't on strike. It was said to be Gayle the only difference. Now they have shown in the final that they can win even a WC final without Gayle. The same guy (Sammy) who captained that team, will still be their captain. We have to win and compete in this series, if we want to earn any respect from the world, if we have to count our previous wins respectfully and if we want to get rid of that Minnow tag.

In that context, This is going to be the most important series after we received our test status. All the other series against g8 teams, we could cover up as learning process, but this series is more about proving our ability than just learning. Many are sitting out there watching, to justify their negative views on us and teams like Ireland and Sco, if not Afg, are waiting too, to extract maximum benefits & favors of ICC out of our bad performance in this series.

So this series is very very important for us to justify a lot and to prove a lot to every cricket fan, players, Journalists and administrators all over the cricketing world. A thrashing by WI in this series will throw us into the Dark ages once more. Do you see us being able to prove ourselves here?

Please do post any news and views you have or come across that might have an impact on this series.

Beshi kisui hobe na.

Get ready for war in Banglacricket!

PS - Zero expectation apart from a draw in one of the tests and if lucky, one win in ODI.

বন্ধ হয়েই আবার চালু সাকলায়েনের স্পিন ক্যাম্পবোর্ড-কোচ-ম্যাকিন্স জটিলতা বাড়ছেই


ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক : 'কার অনুমতি নিয়ে স্পিন বোলিং ক্যাম্প করাচ্ছেন সাকলায়েন'- ই-মেইল বার্তায় বজ নিনাদ শুনিয়ে দেওয়ার উপায় নেই, তবে রিচার্ড পাইবাসের ভাষার গজরানি ঠিকই আছড়ে পড়েছে বিসিবির ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটিতে। তাই তাৎক্ষণিকভাবে বন্ধ করে দেওয়া হয় সাকলায়েন মুশতাকের অধীনে আবদুর রাজ্জাক, মাহমুদ উল্লাহ এবং ইলিয়াস সানির বিশেষ স্পিন শিক্ষা কার্যক্রম। তবে সন্ধ্যায় জাতীয় দলের কোচের স্বেচ্ছাচারিতা প্রতিরোধে নিজেদের কর্মপরিকল্পনা ঠিক করার শুরুতেই ওই স্পিন ক্যাম্প পুনরায় চালুর সিদ্ধান্ত নেওয়া হয় বলে জানিয়েছেন বিসিবি পরিচালক জালাল ইউনুস। একইসঙ্গে জাতীয় দলের জন্য পরবর্তী পরিকল্পনাও দ্রুত জানাতে বলা হবে রিচার্ড পাইবাসকে।
জাতীয় দলের প্রতিটি সফরের পরই ছুটিতে যান রিচার্ড পাইবাস। তবে সেই ছুটি কার কাছ থেকে নেন কিংবা কবে ফিরবেন, তা কাউকে আগাম জানানোর প্রয়োজন মনে করেন না তিনি। এবারও দেশে পৌঁছে ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সকে এক ই-মেইল বার্তায় পাইবাস জানিয়েছেন, 'কবে ফিরব এখনো ঠিক করে উঠতে পারিনি।' এমনকি, আগামী মাসে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজের বিপক্ষে হোম সিরিজের প্রস্তুতি কবে শুরু হবে, সেটিও জানাননি তিনি, যে আচরণে বোর্ডের সম্মিলিত উদ্বেগের কথা জানিয়েছেন জালাল ইউনুস, 'ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ সফরের প্রস্তুতি কবে শুরু হবে, সেটি কোচ জানাননি। প্রধান নির্বাহীকে বলা হয়েছে যেন তাঁর কাছ থেকে দ্রুত একটা প্রোগ্রাম জেনে নেন।' ছুটির বিষয়টি পাইবাস অন্ধকারে রেখে দেওয়ায় স্পষ্টই বিরক্ত বিসিবির এই পরিচালক, 'চুক্তিতে বছরে ৪৫ দিন ছুটি পাবেন তিনি। এর বেশি ছুটি বিসিবি অনুমোদন দেবে না।'
অনুমোদন তো পরের কথা, রিচার্ড পাইবাস তো অনুমতি নেওয়ারই প্রয়োজন মনে করছেন না! বুধবার বিকেলে বোর্ড সভায় হাজিরা দেওয়ার পরই সবাই জানতে পারেন যে কোচ ছুটিতে যাচ্ছেন। জাতীয় দল এবং এর টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টের চিরন্তন অভিভাবক ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটি থেকে অনুরোধ করা হয়েছিল যেন নথি হিসেবেও ছুটির কথা জানিয়ে একটি ই-মেইল করেন তিনি। সেটি করতেও রাজি হননি পাইবাস। অবশ্য হবেন কেন? ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সের কর্তৃত্বই যে স্বীকার করেন না পাইবাস!
সম্প্রতি আরেকটি ই-মেইল বার্তায় তা নাকি সাফ জানিয়েও দিয়েছেন রিচার্ড পাইবাস। নিজের তো বটেই, জাতীয় দলের খেলোয়াড় এবং কোচিং স্টাফদের দায়িত্ব থেকে শুরু করে ছুটি-ছাঁটাও নির্ধারণ করবেন- নিয়োগ প্রক্রিয়ার সময় নাকি বোর্ডের ঊর্ধ্বতন মহল থেকে এমনই আশ্বাস পেয়েছিলেন তিনি। বাংলাদেশে জবাবদিহিতার একটা 'জায়গা'ই চেনেন পাইবাস- বোর্ড সভাপতি। এর মাঝখানে অন্য কোনো কর্তৃপক্ষের কর্তৃত্ব মানেন না পাইবাস। অবশ্য কোচকে এমন কর্তৃত্ব দেওয়ার কথা নাকি সহকর্মীদের কাছে অস্বীকার করেছেন বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল। 'কোচকে সর্বময় ক্ষমতা দেওয়ার বিষয়টি অস্বীকার করেছেন', জানিয়েছেন জালাল ইউনুস। তবে বোর্ডেরই একটি অংশ মনে করে স্টুয়ার্ট ল হুট করে চলে যাওয়ায় খ্যাতিমান কোচ নিয়োগে মরিয়া বিসিবি সভাপতি মৌখিক কোনো প্রতিশ্রুতি দিয়েও থাকতে পারেন। সে কারণেই কিনা চুক্তিতে জাতীয় দলের সর্বময় ক্ষমতা এবং ছুটির ব্যাপারে পূর্ণ স্বাধীনতা না থাকায় তাতে সই করছেন না রিচার্ড পাইবাস। সে ক্ষেত্রে কোচের চাহিদা পূরণের জন্য চুক্তির শর্তে পরিবর্তন করা হবে বলেই কাল জানিয়েছেন জালাল, 'সেই সম্ভাবনা নেই। তাঁর কাছে আমরা কাজ চাই। এত শর্ত পূরণ করে সেটি আদায় করা সম্ভব হবে না।'
এদিকে শুধু হুটহাট ছুটিই নয়, আরো কয়েকটি কারণে বিসিবির মাথাব্যথার কারণ হয়ে দাঁড়িয়েছেন রিচার্ড পাইবাস। নিজে ছুটিতে গিয়ে একাডেমীর হেড কোচ রিচার্ড ম্যাকিন্সের ওপর ছেড়ে দিয়ে গেছেন 'বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেট'। ম্যাকিন্সের নির্দেশই আমার নির্দেশ- পাইবাসের এমন একটি 'অনুমোদন' পেয়ে ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটির কর্তৃত্বের ওপর সওয়ার হয়েছেন একাডেমীর কোচ। এতে করে একটা ভজঘট অবস্থার সৃষ্টি হয়েছে বিসিবির ব্যবস্থাপনায়। আবার ম্যাকিন্স বিশেষ অনুমোদন পেলেও সাকলায়েন মুশতাক কেন তিনজনকে নিয়ে আলাদা অনুশীলন করছেন, এ নিয়ে তীব্র আপত্তি জানিয়েছেন পাইবাস। তাঁর কথা, 'আমি ক্রিকেটারদের বিশ্রাম দেওয়ার পরও কেন তাদের মাঠে পরিশ্রম করানো হচ্ছে?' মজার ব্যাপার হলো, সাকলায়েনের স্পিন ক্যাম্পে 'এ' দলের এনামুল হক জুনিয়রসহ আরো কয়েকজনকে এনে ভিড়িয়েছেন ম্যাকিন্স। প্রশ্ন হলো, বিশ্বকাপ শেষে ২৭ সেপ্টেম্বর দেশে ফেরা রাজ্জাকদের যদি আরো বিশ্রামের দরকার হয়ে থাকে, তাহলে ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ হাই পারফরম্যান্সের বিপক্ষে সিরিজ শেষ করার দুই দিন পরই কেন মাঠে এনামুলরা?
কোচের বিশ্রাম ফেলে গতকাল অনুশীলন করেছেন জাতীয় দলের অধিনায়ক মুশফিকুর রহিমও। তা ছাড়া জাতীয় দলের প্রতিটি সদস্যের জন্য আলাদা আলাদা ট্রেনিং শিডিউলও তৈরি করে দিয়েছেন ট্রেনার গ্রান্ট লুডেন। তাহলে নিরবচ্ছিন্ন বিশ্রাম আর পাচ্ছেন কোথায় ক্রিকেটাররা? উল্টো লম্বা ছুটিকে নাকি দরকার মনে করছেন না ক্রিকেটাররা। বাংলাদেশের বিশ্বকাপ শেষ হয়ে গেছে প্রায় আট দিন আগে। জাতীয় লিগ ২০ অক্টোবরের আগে শুরু হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা কম। ছুটি আরো দীর্ঘায়িত হচ্ছে জেনেই মাঠে নেমে পড়েছেন মুশফিক। কিন্তু কোচ বিশ্রামের পক্ষে।
তবে কি নিজের ছুটি জায়েজ করতেই শিষ্যদের 'বাধ্যতামূলক' ছুটি দিয়েছেন কোচ?

How much exactly did the players worked hard following the t20 world cup ? They only played two games for names sake and boom they were out of the tournament. Their poor showing in worldcup if meant anything that they need to work harder. Heck i even say this t20 wc was a good vacation for them, 5 star hotel, paradise and all. I feel so bad for shakib . He takes this whole team over his shoulder and you provide rest for the guys who did not do jack. He is playing constant cricket forever i can remember.

Playing against the reigning T20 world champs, BCB can lobby and arrange for an extra T20I match, if ICC permits, though I highly doubt it since almost every team has exhausted their limit of T20I per year before the world cup to prepare themselves.

Our best chance to be competitive in the series is to develop difficult wickets. Not one where there is a lot of turn, but where the ball doesnt come on to the bat, low bounce etc. Like the wickets we had against New Zealand. We stand a better chance in low scoring wickets, than high scoring ones.

Now if we try to be fair and sporting and try to make wickets with bounce, turn we ll be destroyed against a spirited West Indies full of confidence.

^^ Low, super turning, difficult pitch is a must.
You prepare anything sporty or batting friendly, we might see world records at will.
But then again, our batsman will make sure Narine becomes a Warne in this series.

Thats why we shouldnt make a turning track. Narine, Bishoo, Badree will destroy us.

Rather the ball shouldnt come on to the bat, there should be low bounce, and slight turn. Ideal for SLA's. Windies dont have the best footwork in the world. And they are relatively tall guys. So our SLA's can them plenty of trouble. There will be plenty of LBW's.

Making such wickets is very unsporting. But its our best chance of being competitive. But its not like West Indies will make turning tracks for us in West Indies. They will also develop bouncy wickets to suit their strengths and our weaknesses.

As usual, BD will have very poor preparation for this series. This is a stronger and different Windies team from a few years ago and after winning the 20/20 WC, they are all hyped up and found their confidence. I cannot blame your players for theirpoor performance because preparation for this series is very poor, unlike other countries, I blame management and coaches for poor motivation.

If things get sour with RP it may get sweeter for many BC-ites who wanted to see RM as HC even in 2007 after Dav Whatmore left. He is now more experienced and always willing to help Bangladesh Cricket. He was one of the coach present during recent Women Cricketer Hunt @ BCB HQ.

Expect nothing but a thrashing, won't be surprised if we lose every single match in all formats. There is not a single BD player who can hope to get in west indies top xi other than Shakib and maybe Tamim. The WI squad will possible look something like this -Gayle, Dwayne smith, Darren bravo, Samuels, Pollard, Dwayne bravo, Russell, Narine, Sammy, Roach, Rampaul with the likes of Fidel, Badree, Bishoo, Sarwan, Chanderpaul in the bench. Make no mistake about it, whatever the rankings say, if WI put their best xi on the park (like they did in wt20) they are FAR better than us. Even a WI team without Gayle beat us easily in test and odi's last year in BD.

Far better than us??? FAR better than many of the top teams !!! Their best 11 line up comprises of few of the bests of the world cricket specially in the shorter formats... Gayle, Smith, Samuels, Pollard,Bravo, Russel, Narine- all match winners... Don't know what's waiting for us

Would love to have Richard McCinnes as head coach of this team. He probably knows most of the boys too.

Training sessions has not even started, thanks to our great head coach who needs more vacations than the rest of the team combined! 45 days of paid vacations are not enough, that's why he does not even sign his contracts in 4 months...already completed more than 30 days of vacation...and by the time he gets back from 2 week hiberbation he will complete all 45 days worth...

An amazing coach indeed! Or should I say vacation coach as he wants the players to take vacations as well by shutting down spin bowling sessions?

You are right, that 11 is arguable the best in t20 and if they play to their potential one of the best in odi's as well. In tests they are not a top side but far better than our legends Kaedge and Mofees.

That's what really impressed me about the windies. Yesterday after winning, they were saying how long they have to go and they're preparing hard for the bangladesh series.
