Default 2015 ODI BanglaCricket XI - Specialist Spinner

Who should be the specialist spinner for Bangladesh in ODI's?

For those of you who might be a bit confused a specialist spinner is in the team primarily to bowl (e.g. Razzak, Sunny etc.).

This exludes players such as Shakib, Mahmudullah, Nasir etc.

Make a selection from the poll above. The poll expires in 5 days.

I think Jubair would add much needed variety to our spin attack, so voted for him. Having said this, Gazi was doing really well when we had saqlain mushtaq, helping him, think he was developing some useful variations and he can be pretty handy with the bat too, so if I could vote twice, would put him in there.

i always liked elias sunny. I still think he deserves a chance. But i also like arafat in home conditions. On top of that Jubair adds alot of variety into the team.

looking at the voting i feel like people are falling into the jubair hype a bit too much. Does he deserve a spot ahead of a seasoned campaigner like arafat who has been very good for BD in odis and taijul who was racking up huge number of wickets prior to getting into the national team? Sure he has huge potential but he needs to prove himself a bit more imo.

Jubair Hossain has shown what he is capable of and can be a long-term but I'm going to stick with Gazi. He has been consistently playing well in domestic matches after getting his action corrected and he has done well in the past in the national team. I think he still has a lot to offer and can bat a bit too so I'll go with Gazi.

if domestic matches is what you are basing ur decision on than why not Elias Sunny who has been the highest wicket taker in both format in the last 2 years?

I voted for Jubair based on the need for variety ala leggie in the team. Qualitatively the difference between our all rounders and army of pure SLA's is about unish bish or slightly more. Since there are so many bowlers bowling the same variety, unless batsmen really suck against spin it's not difficult for them to get the measure of the bowling. It also makes the job of a specialist SLA more difficult. If Jubair isn't picked I'd favor someone like Gazi or Sunny who are also handy with the bat.

Sadly domestic cricket is not a great indicator of how good our spinners are. Elias Sunny, Arafat, Shuvo, Nabil Samad, Saqlain Sajib, Enamul Haque Jnr all have heaps of wickets at FC level, enviable averages but seem ordinary in the international arena.

I am actually quite pleased with both Taijul and Jubair. Both seem a little different, offers sth new to the team. But they also have a lot more to learn.

I am still dissapointed though BD has not been able to uncover a genuine high strike rate wicket taking spinner. I can accept we cant produce a 150 kph+ bowler easily, but a country with such population, enthusiasm for the game should be able to produce one strike spinner. I am not talking about Shane Warne or Muralitharana. At least a spinner in the mold of an Ajmal or Swann or McGill or Saqlain Mushtaq who can impose some fear into the opposition.

Because Elias has not been able to do the same thing in the international arena and has been out of the national team for quite a while now. While Sohag has achieved quite a lot in international matches and was in the national team but was dropped due to his reported action. Even if I didn't pick Sohag, I wasn't going to pick an SLA anyway because we already have Shakib in the team.

Arafat sunny is "almost" unplayable in home condition and we play all of our ODI matches at home in 2015.

my favorite Arafat Sunny moments: the game when Sri Lanka was reduced to 67/8, Arafat Sunny got the off stump of two Sri Lankan batsmen.

no he was going to be dropped anyways... his performance before his reported action was terrible to say it politely. He was an absolute nightmare to watch if I recall correctly

Sometimes this happens to certain players. When they are chosen for the NT, they give their best, perform well. Then they take their place for granted, stop working hard and their performance declines.

I cant confirm the following story, but if it did happen then it could be an indicator of why he was struggling even before his action was reported

I was so tempted to vote for Jubair but the defensive & run saving mindset in me made me choose Taijul.

For tests would definitely pick Jubair for sure.

I am very tempted to do 2 choose 3 (Taijul, Sunny, Jubair) but i am very biased towards Jubair for some reason . However. When we do end up choosing at least 2 out of these 3 spinners, this means that we have to sacrifice a 3rd specialist seam bowler...

Odds seem to be stacked against our golden boy. This article says

" Leg-spinner Jubair Hossain, who rose to fame during the last series against Zimbabwe, may not feature in the ODI series either. After the series against Zimbabwe though, Jubair has reportedly lost out a bit on his accuracy. He wasn't given as many opportunities in the NCL either."

Talent management is sth that lets BD cricket down all the time. Young Jubair should have been working in the academy under the eyes of a knowledgeable spin coach.

Jubair Hossain is also the most over-hyped spinner of this decade!

not sure if most over hyped of this decade but he is definitely being overhyped. Would have rather preferred arafat or taijul because they have great domestic stats to back themselves up.
