Default BCB president behind Mehedi Hasan's inclusion for ODIs

Ten days after announcing that it was his decision to drop Mahmudullah for the Colombo Test, BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said he was behind the decision to pick Mehedi Hasan for the ODIs against Sri Lanka.

Mehedi had returned to Dhaka from Colombo on March 20 with the other Test players who were not part of the ODI squad that was announced the previous week. But three days later he was added to the ODI side, for the first time in his career.

Hassan said that he first called chief selector Minhajul Abedin, telling him to include Mehedi in the ODI squad, before calling the player himself to ask him to make plans to return to Sri Lanka. He said Mehedi's inclusion in the playing XI for the first ODI was only decided on only after the team arrived at the Dambulla ground; there was discussion around whether left-arm spinner Sunzamul Islam could be added to the XI instead.

"I called up [Minhajul Abedin] Nannu to send over [Mehedi Hasan] Miraz," Hassan said. "I found out he is in Khulna, and told him that he must get back to Sri Lanka. Basically we wanted to keep him as an option because they have a number of quality left-hand batsmen. Miraz had been bowling well in the Tests and this is a very important series for us. But when I sat with the team that morning [of the ODI], it still wasn't decided if Miraz or Sunzamul [Islam] would be playing. It was finalised after coming to the ground."

Mehedi opened the bowling in the chase of 325 in Dambulla, sending down all ten over for figures of 2 for 43.

Last week when Hassan had spoken about his role in the Mahmudullah exclusion, he said that he takes "all the decisions". He has been vocal about selection decisions since the Afghanistan ODI series last September, and during the Bangladesh Premier League too. Incidentally, in June 2016 Hassan had said that the revamped selection committee would cut down his role in selection decisions.

Papon loves attention. A press conference literally everyday. Can this guy not keep his mouth shut for some time and work behind the scenes.

And, despite not holding a bat/ball in his life, he is claiming to make selection decisions on behalf of people he paid millions for their expertise. Something is seriously wrong with our cricket system.

Also, why is he always with the team? Instead of going for these BCB sponsored vacations, shouldn't he be in Dhaka running the board and finding solutions on improving our cricket?

If it's true then hats off.
First he dropped Riyad and now picked Miraz.

This is where selectors and Haturi failed. So keep going Nazmul!!!!

I don't care what he does as long as it gives the results we want.

Whilst I don't agree with president getting involved with squad/team selections, there has been a lot of internal family politics within the team and so it takes a strong character like Papon to intervene and do the right thing. Hats off to him

Yh true but, he's probably made few crap 'executive selections' but he won't open his mouth about them am sure

The moment when you realize the BCB president is a better selector than the people hired to do the job of selecting. Our real selectors have been poor, for a while now.

I was wondering if it was Papon.

Playing Miraz vs SL is fine because of their left-handers and after they scored 350 in the practice match.

Not calling up Miraz was the right call so far. He's only 20, ODIs add to pressure, an unsuccessful stint in ODIs can lower his confidence, he's still working on his Test rhythm and consistency, his impeccable control vanished after all the noise following the England series. These are all things you've to take into account. He has enormous potential, should be handled carefully, and you've to make the right calls with a long-term view.

It's fine if Papon makes a call every once in a while. Just don't make a habit out of it. Let the selectors do their job, otherwise the selection panel serves no purpose.

I doubt he would've interfered before 2nd Test had it not been our 100th. Riyad likely would've been dropped from Test after completing the series. Mominul would've kept playing and he should've. Too early to drop Momin, and Imrul just returned from an injury. It usually takes a little more time to get back to your best following an injury.

All the outcry re Miraz reminds me of Taskin and Tests. Majority of fans were committing harakiri because an injury-prone 19/20 yo Taskin with hardly any FC experience wasn't being called up for Tests. Besides age and injuries, he was unlikely to impress in Tests before developing more control and bowling at 140+ consistently. He lacks in smarts and technical ability/variety. He's all about speed. Not doing well in Tests so far can't be good for his confidence.

And now the same people are overreacting by throwing him under the bus.

Most of us have been whining and complaining about the selection past year and a half and now when someone actually made some right calls, we decide to whine more about the person who did it.

If he's listening to someone, I think it's Hathuru.

If Hathuru wanted Miraz in the team, he would have kept Miraz in Lanka, would not sent him back.

Anyway, good job Papon. Ironic that he thought changing the selection process would require less intervention from him. I hope he has realized his mistake by now.

Papon is a don! I think not only the players, but the selectors from time to time should get closed door threats from him

Thisis why you you shouldnt have let Faruq go. That man knew what he was doing.
Its fine and dandy as long as Papon making this calls once in a while, but dont make it a norm please. It wont end nicely. Bring back Faruq if possible. I still remember the day back in 2006, Faruq and Akram sitting under the burning sun right beside the Feni govt. school field, just to watch an inter school final. Guess, the MOM they chose that day. A 10 years old Saifuddin.

Hathuru isn't the only selector.

Based on Faruk's interviews/comments, I'm glad he's gone.

His advice to players used to be: think only about cricket and forget about everything else including family. Guy is stuck in some 1800s Draconian period.

What makes you say he knew what he was doing? I don't recall perfect selections from when he was the head selector. And it was Hathuru who scouted and wanted Sabbir, Soumya, and Fizz in the team.

We do need to find a new chief selector though if Nannu is failing in that role.

Hathuru scouted? You kidding me? Hathuru dont even go to our 1st class matches, let alone scouting for talents. It was Faruq who watched Fizz bowl in a donestic match and dragged him into the national team. He was even quoted saying 'this bowler is different'.
our best U-19 batch of 2006 was made under Faruq's selection team and guess what? Our most successfull U-19 team of 2016 was also made during Faruq's tenture. I am personally an witness of how he hand picked Saifuddin 10 freaking years ago from a town that is not even known for producing cricket players.
Our big 3 debuted during his time.
Soumya, Fizz, Sabbir, Mosa debuted in his 2nd outing. Hathuru didnt want Mosa but Faruq forced his case and asked them to have a look at him even in a not so important t20 series against Zimbabwe. He didnt rate Zubair and look where is the guy now.
Dont forget the 2007 t20 WC. Where he debuted Mahmudullah, Zunaid Siddique, Nadif chowdhury. After he left the post we were playing ROK in t20 WC and every1 was crying whey we were not trying out new players?
He always had an eye for talents, only blamish he had was that he was a bit harsh on senior fringe players.
You can clearly see the selection blanders after he left. There is no way Tanbir Haider would tour NZ if he was here, nor Hom would enjoy a free ride like this. Now Papon has to pick the team because no one else has the guts like Faruq had. You need balls to go against a member of parliament in BD and he did exactly that when he resigned. Its easy to critise people but u didnt see the hard work he did behind the scenes to find new talents.

Hathuru too wanted Fizz after seeing him in action. He's the one who wanted him in the XI IIRC. You can give Faruk as much credit as you want re Fizz (and he was the chief selector; it was his job to scout players "behind the scenes"), an obvious talent, but Sabbir and Soumya were all Hathuru.

There were one or two selection blunders during Faruk's time too, and the amount hasn't increased since he left. Tanbir probably got a shot because we lack a wrist spinner, and he was decent in the practice matches. It was a trial and error, I don't see what's wrong with that. Hindsight is always 20/20.

His comments and interviews indicated he shouldn't be in a top leadership position. And in terms of decision-making re selection, nothing made him stand out from the others. You're seriously overrating him. Just because this and that player debuted during his tenure doesn't mean he was responsible for all the good and had no hand in the bad.

don't know what part of chandi's role includes scouting, he's manager of the team, lower level stuff should be done at that level and then he can have a look at any potentials.

and this bcb guy whatever his name is comes to bath in glory after making these calls that worked out, I wonder how many calls didn't work and he kept his mouth shut.

All of you guys who are in the "yes, the single dictator has decided and is giving results" camp, those of you who are against a proper selection process, on your head be it. The seeds of our team's Kenyaziation are being sown here by all this Papon interventions. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. At least have the honesty and forthrightness to own it when it all goes South.

You know why Miraz is expensive? Because he still tosses the ball up and attacks. Just watch how his trajectory gets flatter in Tests and then he gets Shakibized. Papon does NOT know more about Cricket then a Nannu or a Hathurasinghe, but he feels like he can tell them what to do? Worse, the players are getting the sense that they don't need to care about what coach or selector thinks - they just have to go and kiss Papon's a$$. Banglai bhalo kichu jinish tikte dey na

I thought to judge an employee, you need to look at his work and the results he brings in. But today I have learnt that he should be judged by how he conducts his interviews. Alright. You can deny as much as you want about the selection blunders after he left. I will leave it to the other posters. I am sure they will not agree with yout statement that there is no increase in selection blunders.
