Default Mashrafe's Leadership debate

Excellent leader, a true tiger. very refreshing to see the attacking field placements unlike Mushy's era. If only Mashrafe was not injured for so long, I think we could have won a lot of match. The most important thing is, he also takes his responsibility as a leader, in the previous match we have seen that he has taken crucial wickets of Taylor and Chingumbura. in today's match he was exceptional. I think we all know that Mashrafe as a death bowler is not that great. his attitude and commitment is just world class. I still remember those day's when Mash was fit and made it into top 10 ODI bowler's ranking. I think he can still reach it again. best of luck!

When it comes to raising players spirits, motivating them, earning respect of others nobody is above Mashrafe, not even Shakib. He is blessed with this aura of a jovial older brother who rallies the rest of the side.

To go with this natural leadership ability his tactical acumen is praiseworthy. Lots of changes, leading from front, field placement.

I just hope he remains fit, because there isnt a better person to lead this team in the World Cup.

Actually Mashrafe is like SN, tiger for Zimbabwe or may be for New Zealand somewhat, bread and butter for others include WIndies.

He ia not at all monotonous like Mushy who simply goes through the motion.

Him being a pace bowler, he does give overs to the pacers which is good to see. But I sometimes feel he need to get an extra over of spin to do the job especially against the likes of Zimbabwe

Was he not our best pacer in the recent West Indies ODI series?

Please check if I am mistaken, I have and can confirm he was.

His bowling records in PP in the death is way below par.

That has nothing to do with his leadership. That's like saying Rahim is a terrible opener or Shakib is a ... IDK Shak's good at everything.

Mash has always been the vocal, spiritual leader of this team. Now he's the captain, which adds extra. I just hope he can stay fit and healthy and lead us in the World Cup.

You summed this up brilliantly!

Could not have agreed any more.

Mashrafe is one of all time Bangladesh favourites. But, some of you are going totally bonkers over his "leadership" qualities. Yes, as Jeesh has stated, he is loved and respected by most and wears his big heart on his sleeve and he will run through an wall for the team. There is absolutely no doubt about his commitment. And, we all absolutely adore him for that.

Having said that, I am not totally convinced about his tactical acumen or being able to think on his feet or deliver under pressure. All these qualities are hallmarks of a good leader. I think Mashrafe tends to crack under pressure and his poor death bowling history indicates to that. I don't mean to be a killjoy, though. My intention is only to warn some to not to raise their hopes too high. Needless to say, I wish Mash all the success and the very best.

Is Mashrafee perfect as a captain/leader? No he is not.
Do you think he can improve over time? Yes I do.
Do you you prefer Mashrafee over Rahim as ODI captain? YES. abar jigayee?

Yeah Mash has already proven he's better than Mushy. Don't forget he was also captain when we beat England in England. I think we had great bowler rotation that game.

Granted he is still probably vulnerable in some areas. I can see him cowering against big teams, but you never know. Mushy is a tiger individually, but as a leader he was a mouse. Mash is as lion hearted a player as they come...let's hope he can translate that to his captaincy as well.

There is a subtle difference,

Mushy does not open at least not regularly (barring that one time wonder Zim ODI)
whether Mash does and has to bowl in the death responsibly.

Provided that I agree with what BCF said.

^ There's no rule that Mash HAS to bowl in death overs. Although it is typical for an opening bowler to do so. Same goes for Mushy. Typically WK's open the innings in ODI's. Only specialist keeper like Ramdin or Dhoni bat in the middle orders.

Mash is best pace bowler bangladesh ever produced. Even quicker run getter at the end of innings.

I still think he should just stick to bowling. Do what he is good at. Some of the decision he makes as a captin doesn't make sense. To me he seems to be impatient.

Exceptional leadership. He gives so much faith to the pace bowlers and uses them properly.

Not to mention I loved how he used Jubair for a second spell.

In these kind of games we used to get panicked and usually we used to lose the game under different captain. Mashrafee, as a captain, was the different this time.

Remember how we lost to Afganistan and Hong Kong... when things when bad... the team panicked and things went from bad to worst.


I hope Mashrafee stays injury free, because I don't want to see Rahim back as a captain, regardless how great fighter he is as a senior batsman.

Mashrafe = respect.

When you have 5 operations on your knees alone and you want to do the rehab every time, no sh!t, have you ever done one rehab?

7 surgeries I think it is!

His field setting, bowler rotation, and batting strategy so far follows no script unlike Mushy. I had my doubts about his leadership, but so far so good.
