    He should quit bowling permanently. He cannot bowl for crap.


    He is fundamentally aware of his aura within the team. His exhilaration infects them.

    I was so afraid. I thought he wouldn't get it. 23 runs needed with tail to protect. He missed out against India with 96*, last man got out. The way he cut, pulled and hooked, reminded me him playing against SLans and Indians in ODIs last month.

    What a century!! With Shakib getting out this innings became very special.

    Four boys scored Century this year and it is only 1.5 months. Tamim 151 against India, Mushfique 103 against India, Imrul 101 against NZ (ODIs) and Riyad 111 against NZ. We are no longer dependant on Ashraful. He desperately needs a break. That is a progress. I hope against England Shakib gets his.

    Mahmudullah confident about Tigers' chances

    http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesig...php?nid=211775

    Mahmudullah Riyad believes that Bangladesh are in a
    position from which they can challenge the in-form Pakistan in the coming home series.

    There was no shortage of confidence when Bangladesh vice-captain was talking to reporters at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday about his team's chances against Pakistan, who are flying high following a powerful performance against Sri Lanka in their previous assignment, in which they won the Test and ODI series as well as the one-off T20 match.

    Many have already termed the series against Pakistan as the toughest challenge for the Tigers despite the advantage of playing in their own conditions. The Tigers always bank on their spinners when playing at home, but it may not click against this Pakistan team who themselves have spinners of high quality in their side.

    Riyad however was not ready to talk about his opponents' strengths or weaknesses, instead saying that the Tigers were focusing on their own plan.

    “Without any doubt Pakistan is now in very good form and playing fantastic cricket but what I want to say is that we are not thinking about Pakistan, rather we are focusing on our own strengths and weaknesses,” said Riyad.

    “I think we are taking good preparation for the series as we spent quality time in Chittagong during fitness and skill training. I hope you will see the reflection of it in the middle during the series,” he added saying that pedaling rickshaws during the practice in the port city was part fun and part fitness training.

    The Bangladesh vice-captain also made it clear that Bangladesh have only one target, which is to win the series.

    “Our main target is to win the series. I firmly believe that we will get a positive result from the series if we are able to show our skills properly. We have our own plan and if we can apply it rightly than the positive result will definitely come our way,” hoped Riyad.


    He said that the inclusion of pace-bowling all-rounder Forhad Reza has strengthened the team as the number of all-rounders in the squad has been increased.

    “It's nice that Forhad ]filled the vacuum of the pace-bowling all-rounder. I'm really excited with the fact that we have a number of all-rounders in the team like Alok Kapali, Nasir Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan, Naeem Islam, besides myself,” said Riyad. The all-rounder is yet to play a match since being named vice-captain as he missed the last home series against the West Indies first due to fever and then because of an injured thumb, but Riyad was confident about his preparation for the coming series against Pakistan.

    “I'm now fully fit and really looking forward to the series. I'm working hard and hopefully will get the result of that in the series,” said a confident Riyad.

    LOL!!!! Bangladesh can't even compete against our A team!

    Anyhow, I know Bangladesh will lose the series but I do hope that they put up a good fight. I know Ajmal and Afridi are going to murder the Bangalis, but I expect good fighting spirit from the tigers lol

    I don't get it when teams say things such as "We aren't thinking about Pakistan, we are focusing on our strengths and weakness..." etc. Ok it might just be a figure of speech but you better think about teams like Pakistan. Do your home work, leave nothing to chance. Yes work on your self but know what Pakistans players weaknesses are and work around that.

    Usual **, and just another interview.

    yes.. but he is a batsman... a very fit player... and will play next world cup almost without doubt...

    He was the batting mainstay in last world cup and will most likely be the same in the next one.

    He should be Bangladesh's next captain after Mashrafe. I really like his ice cool persona - he can be Bangladesh's MS Dhoni. I reckon he is Bangladesh's best player right now along with Mustafizur. He took his time but he has finally emerged. He is a bit on the older side considering Bangladesh is a very young team on average but he is still extremely fit. Nasir, Shabbir, Soumya and Mahmudullah are the world-class fielders in the Bangladesh side.

    Very immature of Shakib. Muhamadullah showed his class and cool nature. The cool nature is very rare in Bangladeshi cricketers.
    He was cool even after they won while cameras showed Bangladeshi yellow coloured fans crying.

    Really rate Mahmudullah. It's just how elegant he is when his batting comes off. Shades of Laxman. Seems to have a head properly screwed on his shoulder too. Which I can't say about every BD batsman.

    He wasnít talking about Asia cup but the match against SL. Donít know why you trying bring Asia cup into it. Match happened between BD v SL. India not involved.

    Going back to Asia cup, match was won before Dhoni hit those runs, wickets were in hand. So no biggie. Mahmudullah won it from a losing position.

    That is how debates work ... when some low profile Nidahas Trophy group stage win warrants cringeworthy reactions, fans from the third team of the same series will give their opinions, natural isn't it?

    Mahmudullah, the Bangladesh middle-order batsman, stressed the need for his team-mates to improve with the bat, even as he lauded the bowlers for keeping the side alive going into their final Super Four match in the Asia Cup 2018.

    Having lost their first Super Four game against India, Bangladesh needed victory against Afghanistan in their second outing to keep alive their chances of making it to the final.

    Their batsmen struggled, though, and were reduced to 87/5 at one point before Imrul Kayes and Mahmudullah scored 70s to set Afghanistan a 250-run target. Their bowlers then chipped away in a nervy chase, and kept Afghanistan to three runs of the target.

    Bangladesh have won it! Mustafizur Rahman the hero!

    He conceded just four from the last over and Bangladesh have won this thriller by three runs! #AFGvBAN

    Heading into their virtual semi-final against Pakistan on Wednesday, 26 September, Mahmudullah urged the need for improvement. “We still need to work on few areas,” he said. “I will give full credit to our bowling department, but there are few areas to work on in our batting, especially at the start and top order.

    “There are areas we can still improve on. Our middle-order is fine, the top-order needs to click.”

    The top-order wobbles meant Mahmudullah was in a position to steer the team out of a crisis – he said he wouldn’t prefer it another way. "Yes, I do (enjoy being the crisis man),” he said. “The pressure gives me the opportunity to get into my rhythm and give back to my team as well.

    “Pressure will always be there and we just need to find out ways to handle it, that's all.”

    Mahmudullah was also impressive in his handling of Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s premier leg-spinner. He didn’t succumb to pressure, and even clubbed two sixes against the No.2-ranked bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings.

    “I didn't work too much (on his variations). We played three times in four days, so there wasn't much time to think,” said Mahmudullah. “I was just playing with an empty mind. We all know that Rashid Khan is one of the best strike bowlers around the world. That does not mean however that he is unplayable.”

    Mahmudullah returns to full bowling grind ahead of India tour


    After an extended sabbatical from bowling due to injury, Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah returned to a full bowling workload for Dhaka Metropolis, against Chittagong Division in the 2019 National Cricket League.

    Mahmudullah had faced a recurrence of an old shoulder injury during the first Test against New Zealand in Hamilton, when he dived on the field. Subsequent scans on his shoulder ahead of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 revealed a Grade 3 tear, keeping him out of rolling his arm over at the 50-over event.

    He subsequently bowled in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka following the tournament, as well as in the one-off Test against Afghanistan after that, but not at full intensity. That happened during the NCL, where he bowled 39 overs across two innings, and snared six wickets for 80 runs.

    "I could not bowl for seven months because of my shoulder injury, so I tried to bowl some overs in the middle," Mahmudullah told reporters after the game ended on Sunday, 13 October. "I had a good bowling practice as I tried to bowl as many overs as possible because that was my target. My bowling always gives me some added confidence in my batting.

    "We were told that we have to play two or three matches [at the NCL], and our coach [Russell Domingo] instructed us that way, so everybody was focused and everybody tried their level best.

    "We have the India series coming up. It's a big series, and every national team player is trying to perform and get a chance in the squad."

    Mahmudullah had a good outing all around, as he also scored 63 in the only innings that Dhaka batted in, which took them to 354 and the first-innings lead, in response to Chittagong’s 290.

    He walked in at 66/2, when captain Marshall Ayub retired not out, and began by stringing together a half-century stand with Shamsur Rahman (55). Wickets tumbled once the partnership was broken, but he carried on, and added a further 47 with wicket-keeper Zabid Hossain, who top-scored with 85 at No.8, before becoming the sixth man to be dismissed, with the score on 186.

    "I would have been happier if I could score a hundred," Mahmudullah said. "The bowlers were getting help on day two, or even on day three, and so I probably scored two or three runs in the opening 30 to 40-odd deliveries as I wanted to stay at the wicket and score when my opportunity comes."

    Meanwhile, Bangladesh T20 skipper Mahmudullah Riyad -- who was supposed to travel to Pakistan to take part in the Pakistan Super League playoffs for Multan Sultans -- tested positive twice for the virus and is currently in self isolation.

    "I had done the test before leaving for Pakistan and I was shocked after the result came positive on November 6. So, I took another test to make sure and it came back positive again. At the moment I don't have any physical problem but I had a bit of a cold two days back. Currently, I am in home isolation," said Mahmudullah.

    Tigers' ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal is set to travel to Pakistan tomorrow to take part in the PSL for Lahore Qalandars if his Covid-19 test, taken yesterday, comes back negative. Tamim is expected to take part in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup after returning from his PSL stint. The PSL final is slated for November 17.

    Minister Group Rajshahi, one of the five teams of the upcoming Bangabandhu Twenty20 Cup, ignored the opportunity of including Mahmudullah in their team during the players’ draft because the player was infected by coronavirus at that time, said team officials.

    The revelation was made at a press conference after the jersey unveiling ceremony of Rajshahi at the Minister Group head office in the capital where they introduced the team officials and their captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto.

    Rajshahi spent Tk one crore and two lakhs to build their team, the lowest of the five teams, and is the only team in this tournament without any ‘A’ category player.

    Rajshahi coach Sarwar Imran said that they did not pick Mahmudullah despite having a chance to take him in their first call because they were unsure about the all-rounder’s availability from the start of the tournament.

    ‘Our target was to pick an all-rounder, so obviously Shakib Al Hasan was our first choice. He was picked by [Gemcon] Khulna ahead of us. Then we had the chance to pick Mahmudullah but he was suffering from coronavirus infection at that time.

    ‘The tournament was supposed to start from 21-22 November; therefore we were unsure about having Mahmudullah with us from the beginning of the tournament. That is why we opted for [Mohammad] Saifuddin, who is also a very good all-rounder,’ said the coach.

    Rajshahi team and Minister Myone Group M A Razzak Khan also said that they overlooked Mahmudullah due to corona.

    ‘In the meeting before the draft, we agreed that we will pick Shakib if we get the first call. But we were not the first and Shakib was picked by Khulna before us. Then the name of Mahmudullah was on our minds but due to the uncertainty regarding his availability, we looked elsewhere.’

    Mahmudullah, the national Twenty20 captain, was picked by Gemcon Khulna in their second call and the entity also entrusted him with captaincy as he had previously led the Bangladesh Premier League outfit Khulna Titans, owned by the same business group.

    Mahmudullah was supposed to go to Pakistan to take part in the play-off stage of Pakistan Super League but tested positive for the virus on November 8 after the result of his pre-flight test came out.

    Rajshahi did not pick any senior cricketer from the current national team roster but secured the service of Mohammad Ashraful, who is far from international cricket since returning to cricket after his five-year ban for spot fixing ended on 2018.

    The decision from Mahmudullah came as a shock given he had just returned to the format all guns blazing. Mahmudullah dropped from Bangladesh Test fold due to below par performance, made a fiery return in the format after around 17 months scoring an unbeaten 150 runs to pull Bangladesh out of a batting misery in the ongoing Test against Zimbabwe


    Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah made a stir in the cricket fraternity of the country after his intention to quit Test cricket was leaked in the media.

    On Friday night, news broke out the middle order batsman cum off-spinner is mulling to retire from the longest version of the game following the ongoing Test against hosts Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club.

    The 35-year-old has made the revelation to the team following day three’s play of the Harare Test. Dhaka Tribune through multiple sources close to the team has confirmed of the incident.

    The decision from Mahmudullah came as a shock given he had just returned to the format all guns blazing. Mahmudullah dropped from Bangladesh Test fold due to below par performance, made a fiery return in the format after around 17 months scoring an unbeaten 150 runs to pull Bangladesh out of a batting misery in the ongoing Test against Zimbabwe.

    The performance involved a record 191-runs partnership for the ninth wicket with Taskin Ahmed. The duo was four runs short of a 23-year-old world record of 195 runs between South Africa's Mark Boucher and Pat Symcox that was established during a Test against Pakistan in 1998.

    There is wide rumor that Mahmudullah’s decision was driven by emotion for having been overlooked in the format by the selection panel. Mahmudullah before the Zimbabwe Test now, played his last in January 2020, against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, and was subsequently left out of the series against Zimbabwe last year and against West Indies and Sri Lanka this year. He was also among a handful of cricketers to be given a white-ball-only central contract in 2020.

    Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan speaking to a leading newspaper of the country said he was informed of Mahmudullah’s decision which he shared in the dressing room. The BCB chief however could not understand Mahmudullah’s choice given the cricketer had informed the board of playing all three formats of cricket for Bangladesh in the recently signed central contract.

    “We took in writing from everyone about who wants to play in which format. We did it four or five days before they left for Zimbabwe. [Mahmudullah] Riad mentioned that he wants to play in all three formats. He said that if he is given the chance, he would like to play Tests and that's why he was included in the [Test] squad [against Zimbabwe],” BCB president Nazmul Hassan was quoted as saying in the report.

    Mahmudullah made his Test debut in 2009 during Bangladesh’s tour of West Indies. The right-handed batsman in 50 matches and 94 innings has scored 2914 runs at an average of 33.49. The 150 not out in the ongoing Test against Zimbabwe is his career best figure and has five centuries and 16 half-centuries under his belt.

    He is yet to bat in the second innings for Bangladesh in the Harare Test against Zimbabawe.

    With the bowl, the occasional off-spinner has picked 43 wickets in 65 innings with best figure of five for 51 against West Indies.

    Mahmudullah in a video message the media on Friday spoke of his performance in the first innings with the bat but did not say anything regarding his intention of retirement.

    The body language of any sports team on the field is a good indicator of where the side stands mentally and from the beginning of the recently concluded World Cup, Bangladesh side have painted a picture of falling heads and dropping shoulders. Coming into the T20I series at home against Pakistan, the crisis appears to have deepened with captain Mahmudullah Riyad unable to facilitate the mental changes that are basic in the modern game.

    A dramatic last over from the skipper, where he bagged three wickets, had added some spark to the dead rubber in the third T20I against Pakistan at the Sher-e-Bangla yesterday but the game in reality was well over before that point as the Tigers ended up succumbing to their first T20 series whitewash at home since 2018 against Sri Lanka. The last time that it happened was also under Mahmudullah's leadership and not much change has come in the attitude or acceptance of such difficult situations.

    Yesterday's last over saw Mahmudullah marshalling his troops with more vigour than had been seen in the series so far, imbued by the two wickets of Sarfaraz Ahmed and Haider Ali off back-to-back deliveries. However, Mahmudullah's involvement on the field, when the team has found itself in difficult situations, has been puzzling since the series wins against Australia and New Zealand at home. It is easier to lead when there is momentum but team leaders need to galvanise others when the chips are down.

    "Yeah, it's a little heartbreaking. We got close but unfortunately it didn't happen for us," Mahmudullah dictated with a dejected smile following the match yesterday.

    When asked about Saif Hassan being dropped from the third T20I, his response reminded of how he dealt with the Mushfiqur Rahim question: "The team management will be able to answer it well."

    Mahmudullah, since the beginning of the Pakistan T20 series, has worn the expression of a man forced to carry a burden that he does not agree with. The vacant smile, answering media questions vaguely only because he has to answer for the sake of answering, were noticeable. When he refers to team management, the obvious question would be whether he is part of that management as the skipper. Whether or not he agrees with the selection, as the on-field captain, it was his duty to uplift players lacking confidence but his own submission has made things difficult. That he was not accountable on selection matters was made clear.

    However, accountability has to be there. Even against sides like Scotland and Oman at the World Cup, the team's body language was one of despair at crunch times and Mahmudullah himself looked the most disheartened.

    "If we could win one or two matches, the confidence level would be higher. The dressing room was spirited during Australia and New Zealand series. Obviously when you lose, it creates doubt. The boys tried hard," the skipper said regarding where his side is at the moment.

    A side cannot however always have winning momentum, but the lack of involvement and positive body language that results in a defeatist mentality is more damaging than losses. At this rate, would it be unfair to ask whether Mahmudullah sees himself carrying on as captain in the long-term? If he does, does it correlate with the team finding a new way in T20s?

    Veteran Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmud Ullah has announced his retirement from Tests after a 12-year career.

    The 35-year-old, who made his Test debut in 2009, featured in 50 matches, scoring 2914 runs at 33.49, including five centuries and 16 fifties and took 43 wickets. He also captained Bangladesh for six Tests.

    He played his 50th Test against Zimbabwe earlier this year in July at the Harare Sports Club. It was a momentous occasion for the all-rounder as he starred in Bangladesh's 220-run win over the hosts by hitting 150* in the first innings and was adjudged Player of the Match.

    In a statement, Mahmud Ullah said: “Leaving a format of which I have been a part of for such a long time is not easy. I had always thought of going on a high and I believe this is the right time to end my Test career.

    "I want to extend my gratitude to the BCB President for supporting me when I returned to the Test team. I thank my teammates and the support staff for always encouraging me and believing in my ability. It has been an absolute honour and privilege to play Test cricket for Bangladesh and I will cherish the many memories.

    "Although I am retiring from Tests, I will still be playing ODIs and T20 internationals and really looking forward to continue giving my best for my country in white ball cricket."
