I have voted for Mashrafe.

His attitude, passion and dedication to play and represent Bangladesh is something unique.

How can I be the only one to vote for Shakib? This is sad.

I voted for Shakib because he gets so much hate here. But for me its Shakib and Mash equally. One brought respectability to Bangladesh with his talent, the other brought respect with his captaincy and personality.

Shakib easily is the best among them. Why is Mahmudullah so underrated? yes he is a bit inconsistent and not as talented as say Shakib or Tamim but his performances tend to have more impact than the rest, big match player, scored in the WC, performed in CT where it mattered the most. I think when he performs BD wins more often than not, I don't have the exact stats though.

Shakib divides opinion. Always somehow gets into problems with fans.

Thanks to his wife!

Unlike most other BD cricketers, there are a lot that dislike him (due to off field behaviour)

Ahem.....Just a tiny list of TIK accolades

1st Double Century

Highest score in BD

Centuries in all three formats

Wisden's cricketer of the year

100 against England both at home and away.

100 in mutiple Asia Cups

16 Man of the match awards across all the formats

Represented BD proudly in the MCC XI vs ROW

Saved our *** many times from complete embarassment, notably vs Ireland where BD by just 27 runs

Brilliant 95 against a strong Aus side.

Other than Al-Hasan`s number 1, allrounder status, Tamim is, was and will be Bangladesh`s greatest ever player. Period.

There seems to be no clear favourite!

Literally all the seniors have fan favourites.

Will be interesting to see at the end who edges it in the poll.

I love all of seniors. No point having a favorite...which would divide us.

When they put on the national colors, they represent their country in a sport that is the great uniter!

I used to be a die hard Shakib fan, I still am...along with all the rest...

Lol. How does having a favourite cricketer divide us?

They all represent and contribute for Bangladesh.

Having a favourite doesn't mean to say we think one is better than the other.
It's just maybe we like the more in the sense as to what they bring to the team.

It could be that they motivate us differently! Or that we saw them do something special.
There are many different reasons for having a favourite player.

Not sure how it divides us though.

When Riyad retires, Isam should use these titles:

The Unsung Hero of Bangladesh!

I do. The seniors are not all equal and shouldn't be treated as such. It's not fair to Shakib, who is a class apart. I will say it again because it deserves repeating: Shakib is our only world class player.

Mash has pretty much universal respect both from BD and foreign fans. These two are our top tier.

Then you have Tamim who wasted his talent. He should be our 2nd world class player, but he's not and it's his own fault. For someone with all the advantages that he's had (talent, nepotism, family wealth), he's done jack s*it. Yea he's had a good CT so maybe it's not too late. I will happily eat my words if he continues like this, but knowing him, I very much doubt it. At the end of the day, I will root for Tamim but I don't respect him.

For all his batting powess, Mushy is very immature and a terrible captain. Celebrating before the win against India in T20 WC, crying after being criticized, constantly putting his foot in his mouth numerous times. He does have heart and always gives his best, which no one can deny.

Behind all of them is Riyad. Yea he had a memorable game against NZ and the two 100s. And that's pretty much yet. He's been playing for over a decade, yet only has 3 innings to show for it. He seems humble and is a respectable guy, but he has no business being grouped with the other 4. It's not fair to them.

Before all of you jump at me defending your favorite player, just know I've heard it all. No need to talk about Shakib's shortcomings and over compensate Tamim/Riyad's heroics. Cheers.

He doesn't have the 'it' factor. The Pzzaaz. The oomph. The volupt. The sass. The jazz. The chutzpah. The genova. I don't even know what I am saying now...

He is a very 'boring' player. He gets the job done like Dravid or something. But isn't it astonishing that he defiantly won us the very last game we are so proud of?

It is a bit unfortunate we don't appreicate the silent professionals. It is I guess human nature we long for Tal-like flash and brilliance who makes all the sexy shots and moves, instead of the quiet ones who move incrementally. C'est la vie I guess. But I will tell you this: he is one of the most improved players of recent time.

Where's Imrul Kayes in all of this?

Should have had an option that says 'other'

Unfortunately Imrul Kayes doesn't fall into the senior bracket.
Poll considered only the known/consistent senior players of the last decade.

I voted for Tamim for all the reasons DinRaat mentioned +

I've a weakness for LH stylish batsman. Same reason I loved Lara, Anwar, Sanga etc. I've carefully watched Tamim's drive/strokes and compared with other BD batsmen (SS, Sabbir etc.). To me, it's a different class all-together.

I've nothing against Shakib and Mash.

Oh okay... I thought Imrul Kayes 2.0 was better and consistent than Mamadulla. Let's remember how you used to play part time keeper, when the senior keeper was injured. Nuff respect for him

I chose Mushfiqur because he's the best batsman in the side with a sound technique. Has a strong work ethic, and plays with a lot of heart. Also, he's been keeping behind the stumps even though he may not be the best keeper of Bangladesh. I know his captaincy sucks, but he's not made out to be a captain – doesn't have the leadership skills.

I voted for Tamim. He brought the aggressiveness to the new generation. 16 year old Tamim's 6 against Zahir Khan in 2007 WC, still gives me immense pleasure and then his back to back centuries in England (as a teen). Like Wordworth's Daffodils, those are my "Bliss of Solitude"

Ditto ^^^

I believe Tamim, Aftab, Ash and Rafique and Mashrafe in the lower order brought and even pioneered the risk taking aggressive brand of cricket that we were never known for. Shakib is world class is all that, but it is Tamim who got out off our collective comfort zone.
