Pervez bhai, how did you like Saqlain ? Was he loopy or flattish ? Does he turn the ball well ? High arm action or sling arm like Shakib ?

he looked like a pretty good bowler although it's hardly any indication given that he was bowling on a fourth day bangladeshi pitch. Nevertheless, he bowled very well.

He is very similar to shakib. He's not afraid to flight the ball which is admirabae. There wasn't much variety except for the armball which is a worrying sign. He'll need to learn a bit more variety if he's going to be a better bowler. Even doing things like changing the angle and trying around the wicket, he could have troubled the batsmen a bit more.

From what i saw none of the players were thinking about what they were doing and just playing like robots. It was a really close game but you didn't see pilot try anything different with his bowlers or even the bowlers weren't tryin anything new. Now i can see why the national team struggles so much. There was no grit in the players. When you have a team 7 down and on the ropes, you go for the kill, instead Rajshahi just carried on like they had lost the game even though at that stage they were probably on top.

It was good to get a perspective on what is first class cricket like in BD as i've never seen any bangladeshi FC games before...

Highest wicket taker of the league this season, Mosharraf Hossain, has 107 NCL (FC) wickets at average 26.7 . He still holds the record of taking 9 wickets in an innings in an NCL match.

Thanks Pervez bhai for your description of the match. Surprised to hear Pilot acted so negatively as the captain !

Mon kharap koiren na Eshen bhai. He'll definitely be in the national team in a few years. Probably the most patient batsman who can also score runs (adding the "also score runs" part to exclude him from players such as Belim).

no worries mate. i was just really excited to see some form of cricket on tv... haha. Like i said it was good to get an insight, albeit a short one, into bangladeshi first class cricket.
Pilot wasn't that bad, he did make a few crucial changes by bringing on saqlain and putting a few fieldrs around the bat, but i thought he should have done more from the other end coz alamgir was bowling crap and didn't look like getting a wicket. i don't know, maybe he had no other bowlers that were capable.
Worst of all, anther umpire kills another team, must be that time of the year... i think he may have cost Rajshahi the title...

was hoping raqibul would get a century here, he's a good prospect with a good average but he's running low on centuries.

This is exactly the point I was making on another thread. In BD's 1st class competition teams rarely score 300+ runs or last the full 4 days and only a handful of players score hundreds (150s and double centuries are virtually non-existent).

Now, I know there are far fewer teams (than say Australia or English county cricket) involved in the NCL, but this is still well below what we should be aspiring too.

Congrats Khulna. It was definitely the first step toward having a relevant and serious domestic cricket in Bangladesh but much work is still needed to be done.

Next year, I hope to see more money involved and players take the game more seriously. National team callup shouldn't be the only motivation for the NCL players. There should be some sort of financial reward for players who are performing better than others. It is about time divisions start paying the players based on how they are performing. Ofcourse there should be a minimum salary but unless divisions start competing for a player, a player will never get his full worth. Different corporation can sponsor different divisions. That will not only allow divisions to spend more money on players but they can spend money on coaches, trainer and the facilities. Next year should be the year when a private channel should broadcast NCL regularly based on the matchups. So much work to be done.

Mosharraf is Rafique's pick

http://www.thedailystar.net/story.php?nid=18297

Dhaka's left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain finished as the highest wicket-taker after his match winning six-wicket burst against Rajshahi in the tenth and final round of the 9th National cricket League at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday.

The stunning success in the last game also brought him the man-of-the match award but undoubtedly in the end what made the lanky spinner most happy was the comment of his senior teammate Mohammad Rafique.

"What I believe is that Rubel (Mosharraf Hossain) should be in the squad for the upcoming home series against South Africa. I honestly believe that he is now ready to become a worthy successor of me," ace Rafique reflected on his young fellow's 44-wicket haul in the country's first-class competition.

The obvious question that then arose is the future of the long-serving cricketer but the veteran spinner seemed unbothered about the prospect, instead smilingly saying: "Just ask him what I told him (Mosharraf)".

"Rafique bhai has repeatedly told me that the time has come for me to represent the national side although he has always been aware of what that would mean for him. I am really fortunate that a player like him has praised me in such a way," Mosharraf responded on this inquiry.

Rafique, who failed to get a place in the team for the ongoing New Zealand tour, showered praises on the young prospect.

"He has got the quality to become a good all-rounder. I am especially impressed by his mental strength which is most important in international cricket. He now just needs some nursing under the national team management," Rafique said.

The 26-year old Mosharraf, a student of Dhaka University, however was not in a hurry to find a place in the national side rather he wanted to improve as much as he can before making his international debut.

"It was very encouraging for me to see that my domestic performances have led me to be considered for a national call-up. My main object is to perform well in any level. I am satisfied that I have fulfilled my target in the league and now I am looking forward to continuing it. I am also trying to improve my batting," said Mosharraf.

The lanky spinner also explained the reason behind Rajshahi's second innings debacle.

"At one stage we thought that there was no chance for us to do anything against them (Rajshahi) that's why I had decided to do some experiment in my bowling. I tried variations which worked brilliantly and definitely from now on I will try to continue it to become a good longer-version bowler," he added.

No wonder he is doing so well in both batting and bowling. he is 26+2 at least. He is in the age where a batsman starts to understand the trick of batting and and spinner starts to become mature and more dangerous... and after Rafiqs comment i demand him to be included in place of so called all rounders. he should be in the team instead of Jr., sakib, or tusher.

Default Congrats KHULNA for winning the four day NCL title (2007-08)

Khulna it is
Sports Reporter-DS

Khulna players erupt in ecstasy after the fall of the final Barisal wicket during their National Cricket League match at Khulna Divisional Stadium yesterday. Photo: TigerCricket.com
The dramatic last round of the 9th Na-tional Cricket League saw Khulna regaining the first-class title after four seasons when they handed a 63-run defeat to Barisal at the Birshreshtha Shaheed Flight Lieutenant Matiur Rahman Stadium in Khulna yesterday.

Khulna took the opportunities with both hands after the fate of the title race swung their way following nearest rivals Rajshahi's second-innings batting debacle at the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, where hosts Dhaka recorded an exciting three-wicket win.

The victors dedicated the triumph to their former teammates -- Manzarul Islam Rana and Sajjadul Hasan Shetu -- who died in a road accident in March last year.

It was a big turnaround for Khulna, who slumped to the bottom of the table last season and most importantly, they achieved it without their star players in the last few rounds.

They, however, owed one to Dhaka left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain who picked up two more wickets yesterday to return with figures of 6-13 and make sure there was no tail-end recovery by Rajshahi in the second essay.

Resuming the day on 59 for seven, Rajshahi -- who began the tenth and final round one point adrift of Khulna -- were bundled out for 77 to set a meagre 130-run target for the home side.

A middle-order Dhaka hiccup, however, revived Rajshahi's hopes at one stage but Mahmudullah Riyad and stand-in skipper Mohammad Sharif guided their team home just before the tea break.

Rajshahi's only remaining hope to regain the trophy was a draw in Khulna but the determined home team made no mistake to bowl out Barisal before reaching a stiff target of 302.

In terms of record, Rajshahi finished two wins ahead of their rivals with five victories but they lost three matches. Khulna lost only one match which finally settled the issue.

The new system of batting and bowling bonus points in addition of handsome financial package brought huge excitement in the ninth version of the league although absence of the national players in the last few rounds dampened the spirit a bit.

Now we need to see more games, an increase of the current financial packages, better pitch and umpiring (longer trained) in the coming years. Job very well done BCB.

australia have the same number of teams as the NCL.....but if there were fewer teams that would mean the standard should be higher in the competition with the fewer teams. the more teams the lower the standard should be. the best example of this is australian domestic cricket versus english county cricket. australia's comp is stronger than the english county comp because it's much tougher to get into a team in australia (due to having less teams) than it is in county cricket, there are other factors but this is a big reason why the standard in county cricket is lower than in australian domestic cricket.
