And people raise the standard when Rokon's name comes as an alternative.

When this kind of whimsical decision continues, so will be the continuation of BD misery.

alok is still not fit for a come back. this was a very wrong decision. we could, and should have played rana. he would either contain the flow of runs for the opposition, or score some for us, or do both.

ever since we won the test series, we've been taking things easy. everyone's become arrogant. however, we forgot the fact that we are a hopeless ODI team, and that days like the 2nd odi against india don't come everyday.

the first odi should have been won. now they have the psychological advantage. we are behind. besides, i don't understand the point of playing someone in the national team if he's not even fit enough to play an odi two days after a test match, no matter how good he is.

this was a very unprofessional display from our cricketers and selectors - shows we still have a long way to go, and how arrogant we can become once we start winning. even australia wouldn't make a similar mistake.

haha, you think having Rana would have changed the outcome of the match?

how come taposh only bowled 6 overs and nazmul only 7 overs? Looks like some poor bowling decision by Bashar.

Also with the bat, Bashar and Ashraful did not set the right tone for chasing 251. Aftab, Pilot failed and Alok got the pressure of both scoring and staying at the crease on the first international match. He failed, but he cannot be the only one to be pointed or have our anger dumped for losing this match. The big bulk goes to Bashar, Ashraful and Aftab.

the big bulk goes to our selectors and all the players for their disgusting attitude since having won the test series.

alok should be dropped from the national team until he goes back to domestic cricket and proves himself. he has done nothing to comeback in the national team in the first place. he hasnt performed since pakistan tour which was in 2003. i dont understand why selecters keeps choseing him. he should be sent with the a-team. i understand alok has the talent but he needs to get his form back and keep giving him chances in national team is not the way. i think it will be good for his confident and career if he keeps out of the national team not to mention that it will be good for our team. if he has the talent then he will be back but for now he needs to stay out.

i was always for playing rana in the team. he'll do it either with the bat or the ball. and besides, his recent performances with the bat are better than kapali's.

i don't understand why they leave rana out even though he proves himself so many times. mushfique gadhatare khelanor shomoy to baadhe nai - rana is a much better allrounder than him.

I do agree with most of you. Alok done nothing for past few years, we are still picking alok, and he fails game after game.

This chance could of been give to other player. who did not do well, and got out of the team...

I just hope no more alok until he prove that he can be world class player...

until then Good Bye Alok...............

I guess Razzak Raz just lost his magic touch after long lay off. For 2nd ODI I'd take Rana in for Razzak and if Mashrafee is fully fit and able to play then would axe either Nazmul or Mahmood. Ok, this one is difficult. But we need to find right balace of the team. I think both Aftab and Alok will get first three matches. If they fail to perform next 2 matches then we might be seeing Al-Shahrier again in the last 2 ODIs. Obviously Rafique will be back for 4th and 5th ODis.

Default Alok

actually did go back to domestic cricket and performed and he is back in the side on the back of his successful domestic season. also, did he bowl badly today? Unless the scoreboard is playing tricks with my eyes, he was our most economical bowler today, and he did it over a full quota of ten overs. Not bad in my book.

Anyway, he failed with the bat and I am just as frustrated with him as everyone else here. But lets not get carried away! He is just making his way back to the side and he atleast deserves a couple, if not three chances to prove himself.

He got a recall after doing pretty good in the premium league.

Why do some people fail to understand that Alok is not replacing Rana. Chacha is. Alok bats at no.6, a batsmans spot. If Alok doesn't play, only Mashud can move up at no.6. Not Rana. Not at a vital batting spot like no.6. Actually I can live with Rana coming to open, if he must, no way at no.6. Not with his skill level. We are never gonna play with two half-decent all rounders again. It was a temporary solution due to the injury of Mashrafee. Now with Masri back and enam establishing himself, we won't need the services of the likes off Rana, babu and hoping shujon in the near future. We can field four specialist bowlers. Six specialist batsman. Alok being the sixth ( his bowling is a big big plus)batsman.

The reason Tapash and Nazum didnt complete their quota was due to the suspension threat by refree on Habibul for finishing in time.

AloK derserves another chance. Aftab may not. It was just an incident where everything clicked for Zimbabwe, winning the toss, mashrafee/Rafique injury, day light etc. it wont happen again in Chittagong.

That raised one interesting point. I am very much interested to see side by side comparison of Alok and Rokon's performance in the premium league. Rokon could have been a perfect fit in #6 (if selected) as a batsman.

I have a feeling that Rokon's performance was better than Alok's in the premium league.

Can anyone enlighten us with some facts?

Thanks in Advance.

i am well aware of alok's performance in the league. however, that should not be enough for him or anyone else to get into the national team. this is one mistake our selectors always make - a 70+ score in our extremely low quality domestic league doesn't prove anything.

i had wanted alok out of the team and rana in. ok - maybe pilot would have been pushed up to number 6. in that case, rana could have played at 7. if chacha and mushfique can both be in the team, so can rana and chacha together. alok is unnecessarily occupying a space in the team. rana would not only add to our bowling line up but also to the batting.

therefore, alok is, indirectly, taking up rana's place in the team.

Alok bowled really well. 10 overs 40 runs. economy rate 4.0 when the match rr was 5.1. Yes he failed with the bat. But I think he will come back fine. Since we are playing 2nd match in Chittagong, the spin attack will suite more than pace. So Alok will still play and Aftab will make place for Rana. And Masri and Enam will come for Nazmul & Raz.

Default i still dont understand how rana is supposed to add to the bowling

i have seen rana bowl and i can't for the life of me understand what is so special about him. he doesnt give the ball flight and he doesnt spin it either. i can understand his inclusion in the ODIs, because although he is the ugliest batsman i have seen (in strokeplay and not looks, before someone has a go at me about that comment), he does score crucial runs every now and then. but how can the selectors even contemplate taking him in a test side as a bowler i just don't understand. enam was always a million times better, so why didnt enam play against india rather than rana?

anyway, since this is about rana's inclusion in the ODI side, i'll get back on topic. rana is a useful cricketer at times. but with an eye to the future of bd cricket, we will be much better served hoping that Alok comes good, because he is a player of considerable talent, than to carry on with Rana, who is a mediocre player at best. rana will probably play in the next game and take five wickets just so that everyone can take me apart for what i just wrote, but that doesn't change anything. everyone has their day, and if rana does play in the national team in the next match, i hope he does well for the sake of our side. but i just don't think he is a future star in the making, but Alok just might be.
