Im just reading a few posts on Bully and...

Bully led the way once again with a solid 76 while Parmy (39), Rennie (36), Robin (32) and Travis (28) all got starts.


I think Travis is ex-zimbabwean player Travis Friend

Default The First \"Ask Aminul\" (24/12/04)

Former Test skipper signs on for write stuff

It's been a difficult week at The Tonk central, trying to top the runaway success that was last week's column. "That was the most incredible piece of writing in the history of cricket reporting," opined one reader. "Where do you go from here?"

Tough question. But a fair one. After consulting with our marketing team, our army of PR advisers and someone called Ears, one theme resonated loudest: The Tonk needed a big-name signing, preferably a Test captain.

Mission accomplished. From today, Bangladesh's former Test skipper Aminul Islam will exclusively take The Tonk readers' questions in this creatively-titled column, Ask Aminul. Now leading South Sydney in the shires competition, Aminul played 13 Tests and 39 one-dayers for Bangladesh, leading his nation to a memorable victory over Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup and scoring a century on Test debut against India.

With bat and ball, Aminul showed great versatility. But it's as a columnist, a Tonk columnist, that the Bangladeshi cricketer will display his true all-round skills, taking your queries on cricket, love life, politics, travel ... anything.

Each week, Aminul will select and publish the best questions emailed to smhsport@smh.com.au and answer them accordingly. To get started, here's a few we came up with.

Q. Your famous victory over Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup has been questioned by supporters and investigated by anti-corruption officers. Now, five years on, can you say whether you had any suspicion about Pakistan's performance?

Aminul: "Playing that match as captain, I strongly disagree with the rumour. On that particular day we outplayed them. This kind of upset can happen to any cricketing nation. Just an example - Australia lost a match against Canada in 1975 and Kenya beat the West Indies in 1996."

Q. This week Mohammad Ashraful beat your Bangladesh Test record score of 145. Was your knock better?

Aminul: "The number 158 is bigger than 145, so how can my one be better? Anyway, Ashraful played a superb innings for the country. But don't underestimate the stress of our inaugural Test."

Q. What are the vital ingredients to make a killer Ruup Chanda Bhajee?

Aminul: "The recipe is very straightforward. You need oil, a bit of spice (salt and pepper) and the winning mood."

I LOVE BULBULS CHARACTer. He should be brought into the side and made the captain just for his attitude. And best of all, pressure will be off sumon. And we will get a consistent middle order batsman. I mean it cannot get worse that what it is now

Ok i managed to dig that article up... this is from 31 Dec 2004


ASK AMINUl

Former Bangladesh skipper and current South Sydney shires captain Aminul Islam will answer your questions on cricket, love and life in The Tonk each Friday. Email questions to smhsport@smh.com.au.

Q: Does Bangladesh beating India this week show that the big teams don't place a high priority on one-day matches? Or do you feel Bangladesh are showing the first signs of emerging as a legitimate, competitive side?

Duncan T, Glenhaven

A: Big teams play every match with the highest priority. But they do experiment with relatively weaker sides like Bangladesh. In one-day matches, a few overs are enough to change the result. Upsets are a common phenomenon. But definitely Bangladesh are getting competitive, mature and confident in the higher league.

Q: I met this girl a week ago and I can't get her out of my mind. Should I just try and play it cool, take it easy and not put all my cards on the table?

James M, Bondi

A: Liking is something that comes from the heart. You are lucky that you met the girl with whom you are thinking of long-term plans. You should start doing something that she likes. Make her feel special. Best of luck.

Q: Have you ever had a mullet? Does anyone in Bangladesh have a mullet like Jason Gillespie? What do you think of the mullet, generally?

Will S, Avalon

A: No, I never had a mullet. In Bangladesh this is very rare. If only a mullet could make a bowler like Jason Gillespie, then every bowler would certainly want to have one. In general, I think the mullet is a "Gillespie special".

Actually this may be a cricketing question after all. He can't get this girl out of his mind so he can't perform on the cricket ground. Hey Bondi.......take a cold shower!!!!
