Default Kapali should be the Captain of Bangladesh

He should be made captain, then the selectors will be able to play him on every match, even he keeps scoring less than 0 runs.

Make rafique captain and ranjin his VC, those are the best two players of bd and the ones who try the most with bat/ball and have no had privious experence before.

I think Rafique has good sense of cricketing. But I do not understand why he was not choosen Captain. If English is the only reason then Allah helps
Bangladesh selectors.

A joke thread for KAPALI! that's sad.
Though I am not a fan of Kapali, i predict he will be runmachine in near future. But one condition: just order him to learn from Rajin.....

We just judge a team's performance by one defeat?
Just a few days back- everybody was voting for Kapali's return- akhon everybody's stabbing behind his back? This is a typical problem in our characteristic- once and for all, we need to get rid of this!

We need to follow the best (Australia) to improve our cricket. Australia selects best eleven first and then select captain from them, which means captain must be among the best performer. Alok and Rokon can be considered themselves most lucky cricketers in Bangladesh cricket history who were given lot of opportunity but wasted it.

I'm great admirer of Alok's cricket and want him to perform well. When his position will be secured in Bangladesh team, the question of his captaincy can arise.

Until then please close this unnecessary thread.

We can not afford to have any captain like Durjou (only good for subcontinent) or Sujan (not sure! good for what) in our test team. We need a captain who will inspire the rest of the players by his performance.

I understand the pain that you guys experience when BD loses a game but let's not jump on Alok's back just yet. As i recall Rajin Saleh was performing really badly untill recently, now if he was let go we might have not seen these great innings that he played both forms of the game. Besides, in a team that features no true superstars, and the only consistent about the players is the inconsistency then why are we just criticising just him? There are many players who are not scoring runs... besides if we choose different players every tour it just doesn't give any real opportunity for an individual to succeed. Alok Kapali gets selected primarly because he follows instructions that coach and the captain provide him with. All you people who think Alok shouldn't have been picked ask yourself the following question: would you pick someone who follows instruction, hard working or someone who plays selfishly and is against team principle. I hope you will find the answer rather quickly. I know you might say he hasn't been out of form for some time now but than again this is the Bangladeshi team we are talking about not Australian: almost every Bangladeshi batsman is very rarely in form. Who could they select in his place? Rana? Too slow of a scorer! for ODIs. Rokon? The same Rokon who has been given many opportunities as a specialist batsman without ever capitalizing once. Rokon's highest score in international cricket is 72 which includes both ODI's and test while Kapali's highest is 89* in ODIs and 85 in test match. Let's look at the head to head stats of all of these players.

I hope the stats prove my point for his selection. Coming back to my earlier point of selfishness of player, now there are many players on the Bangladeshi team who are very egoistic one might safely include the captain Bashar in that list. He showed such act as I recall in a recent Test match against India when hooked a bouncer in spite of a fielder in the deep square leg and when Bangladesh needed him to carry the load. Nafees Iqbal in the last game vs. Zimbawae litterally threw his wicket away and no one seems to get on his bandwagon. The same Nafees who almost single handedly lost the first ODI against India by scoring at a pace not much faster than snails but all is forgotten because he scored a century in the last test which gave our national team its first ever test series win. The team has full of such examples yet Alok seems to be the preferred prey of everyone. And additionally, he was brought in the squad mainly as a spinner... and to my knowledge he bowled quite well last match and let's not forget he's just coming off an injury. Lastly, i don't think he was souly to blame for the loss; Bashar, Ashraful and Aftab should share the load. Somebody once said that in team sports one person can never win or lose the game by themselve and no except should apply in his case. I hope he will be selected match again and so can prove his critics wrong like his Sylheti camarade Rajin did.

Peace out ya'll and hoping for a Bangladesh win in the next match.

Yes sure, I don't have any 'apotti' to make Pilot captain, as long as he misses those crucial run out chances in One Day games - of Chigambura - who turns out to be scoring a match winning 41 off 30 odd balls and as long as Pilot scores ducks or fails badly in One Dayers when we were 'supposed to win'.
