Default Shakib, Rafique or Razzak?

Unfortunately I opened a poll on twitter: https://twitter.com/bangla13c/status/898185743012700161, thinking that I will be able to get a big sample size to see who is the fan favourite amongst Shakib, Rafique and Razzak.

Only less than 15 have voted - a big fail.

So I have decided to ask the BC member here. Can we get a big sample size? 50+ votes?

Poll Question: Who is your Favourite Bangladeshi Slow Left Arm bowler?

Rafique not only my favorite in the list but also perhaps the best.

Rafique was at his best towards the end of his career-unfortunately. Very accurate, wonderful rhythm, wily character. Actually used to think, try to outfox batsmen with flight, air, drift. Wasnt easy to go after him.

Enamul Jnr was also very good for a short time period. Could turn the ball a long way, used the bowling crease brilliantly.

Enamul Jnr didn't live up to his potential.
Had chances to make a comeback to national team.
But performance in domestic wasn't good enough.

If Arafat Sunny wasn't chucking, I would have included him in the list.

Left him in the others option like with Elias, Enamul etc..

Could have been put in the same bracket as Shakib/Rafique/Razzak.
IF he wasn't chucking them.

Razzak chucked like hell though, read in Wiki that he chucked it at 25-29 degrees

My dear Sporting, I voted for Mohammad Rafique.
For these kinds of poll threads, you can always choose to 'check' the feature/box that allows the poll to show which member voted for who.

Thank you for your suggestion BK.

Polls that show which member has voted for what gets much less sample (Votes) size compared to polls that are confidential, in the sense that it doesn't reveal the voters identify. This is from my experience of conducting polls for many years.

You can, like you have, always comment on who you have voted and why?

Shakib. He has been breaking all sorts of records with his SLA bowling. Even though, he has become too lazy lately to keep his bowling at the 2009 level.
Have tremendous respect for Rafique as well. As for Razzaq, he was mostly a minnow basher and had a terrible record in tests. Not to mention, his action was not the best.

Didn't Murali also have a suspect action?
Not equating both.

Think Razzak was pretty good for us.
Shakib used him a lot under pressure situations!

I don't know how to embed videos.

Would have loved to include some videos of Shakib/Razzak/Rafique from YouTube.

I'm sure everyone will appreciate it if someone can upload some videos of them bowling.

I dont think we had a better SLA ever in tests than Shakib in his 2008-2010 phase

Rafique was always the dependable one but nothing special

Razzak in ODI from 2006-2010 was the best we ever had in ODI

See how much input the thread is getting Sporting Bd?

Personally, I like Mo Rafique, was on many occasions, the lone fighter in a Bangladesh test team that were being decimated by the opposition. His fighting spirit is inspiration for many of the future cricketers to come. Carl Hooper was that guy for me.

Shakib the bowler has talent on his side, he can be world class one day, and be absolutely worthless the next, but he will bowl that odd wicket taking delivery ever so often.

Razzak, was phenomenal against the lesser teams... but was not too penetrating against much tougher oppositions.

I voted fro Rafique.
But I think Shakib is the best,
I can not change my vote now. Once you cast your ballot, you can't go back.
Unless Poll-Master Shamim Miah helps me!

So many SLAs, but the cream rises to the top.

How are the current standings? Who is leading in the polls?

Not too much. The vote is stuck at 5. Aim is to get 50+ for a good sample size.

Voter turnout has always been an issue.

In a long time, haven't seen that number you are hoping to get.

There will be lively discussions rather than voting.

I must also clarify. Vladimir Putin has no influence on the poll outcome.

Can Rafique hold on to his position? or will someone overtake him, to claim the throne?
