11 gets into the squad. By the way they bowl and shots they play, I assume they are all kids. You have a very good chance!

Just be a fast bowler. You'll be a hot shot.

To be honest I'm not seriously thinking about it now. I don't want to be arrogant but im a good batsman who can shift gears. Good Ingeniuity.Decent Power Can Clear Ropes Easily on Leg Side and Off Side But need to work playing down the ground. I can also play the short ball which most Players can't and im good at hooking the ball. Need to work on Timing and can bowl off spin/leg spin and decent pace. Nowadays Pace about 86-90 Mph. i could be Shakib,Tamim and Mashrafe in one. I play for my school team. I worry about staying in Bangladesh all my life unless I could live in the UK and Play for them. You never know you may see me in a couple of years

If you are what you say you are, you fit perfectly in the current crop of batsmen playing for BD. I seriously doubt you can bowl 90mph (90kph) at the tender age of 13. i would say you have better chance to get in BD team as a batsman. Let me caution you against becoming an impulsive hooker (curb that instinct). Learn to drive (cover, on and off) and have the discipline to leave wide balls (in the off side). Most importantly, improve ion your footwork. I played for my school team and at that time powerfull areal shots earned my keeps in smallish cricket fields. But it did not cut at the higher levels. In other words, learn to be a boring batsman and people will be knocking at your door. See, if you can join one of the many cricket academies during your summer breaks. You may not learn much from them but al least make a few connections that might be usefull.

I guess he meant he is good both in spin and pace and when ever he is pace bowling his speed is around 86-90 mph.

You're 13...and bowl 86-90 MPH?

I live in Australia pal, and have played some big, tall fast-bowlers, and even at the age of 19 now, I haven't played a guy quicker than 135km.

Of course, if you do bowl that fast, you would pretty easily find your way into the Bangladesh team, based purely on pace as a fast bowler. Plus you bowl "decent" spin along with that (both offbreaks and legbreaks!). Rather than waiting 2 years, you should probably go to Bangladesh and try out now. We need a Shakib, Tamim and Mashrafe all-in-one.

Haha not really man, I'm a decent player here in Aus, but I don't really have time to take it seriously, nor do I feel I have the immense skill required to make it at international level.

During my last visit to Bangladesh (2 years ago), I got a go in a district match in which my cousin was playing. They were a really nice bunch of guys and let me open, which is where I normally play, and my God, that pitch was so unbelievably slow (compared to the pitches here in Sydney). And though I was very comfortable against the pace bowlers, I struggled as soon as the spinners came in. Got out after scoring 28 odd. In fact, I looked dreadful against spin, especially on that wicket. Don't get too many decent spinners where I play.

In conclusion - my dream of playing for Bangladesh was almost completely crushed that day.

How about you? Much cricket down at Conneticut? Presumably not.

Oh ok. Ya that's understandable. Being a professional cricketer seems to require a lot of hard work. It's good you're having fun with it though. Sports are always good to have fun with and take things off your mind. And interesting to hear your experience playing in BD. So it must be very hard for the players to score quickly on those pitches.

And ya not too much cricket down here in Connecticut or in the US in general haha. I only get to play when my relatives come over. None of my friends are really interested in the sport since cricket is nonexistent here. Everyone either plays American football, baseball, or basketball.

No I'm not saying I can bowl at 90Mph. I mean for a 13 Year old when i am set I can bowl the equivilant of 90 Mph top speed for a 13 year old and I do need to work on Footwork and Running between the wickets. The main thing is still where I live. I Have family in Syhlet. And can speak that type of bangali but I can't speak the other kind or read it anymore. I used to go to Bangla Classes. And I also go to a mosque So it would be hard. I am taking Hafiz course so after I learn the Q'uraan I might be able to. Wish me luck to learn the Q'uraan quick aswell

A serious note... First go to a traial for a big team like abahani, brothers or some others. play league games first then get selected for under age teams and then academy then A and then think about national team. Starting u r career asking how to play for bd team is not a good way to start IMO

Yes....say you are not good enough. Can you handle the rejection? Key is to love the game. Newcomers like Elias Sunny have been playing for years and had gone through rigor before getting the nod. It's not easy. Yes we lampoon our players but to get to that certain stage is not a cakewalk. Lot of hard work is needed.

On the other hand, you are young. You live in UK so you have certain advantage of playing with some of the best foreign bowlers in different condition. Also, as Mock bhai said you need to have at least some sort of financial support. If the road leads to cul-de-sac you need to fall back on something unless you are a prodigy and you know you will make it to the top.

These are the realities. I don't want to discourage you but neither I want to lull you into false sense of insecurity. And never ever give up EVEN if the RRR is 36.01.

First thing first.

Do you have support from your family ?

Secondly if you are in UK

You are in the best place for learning your cricket. You just have to find the right club.

Most importantly.

If you follow Bangladesh Cricket you should know our lack of pace bowlers. If you can bowl fast keep doing it and use your spin bowling skills as variation.

Farhan, I would like to see you play for our national team someday, inshAllah. Keep up the hard-work and continue to improve. You can do it! We'll see you play at the national team in several years, inshAllah!

Members shared some valuable advice that you can follow. Also, if you like you can contact coach Ian Pont. He is an active member in bc. He coached the national team in BD and he lives in UK.

Edge every other ball and score a 100 every decade. You will have a career spanning 170+ games. Can you do it?

When I say 86-90 Mph I don't mean actual 86-90 Mph which is Fastish and I bowl Fastish for a 13 Year Old Thanks for the support guys but I'd like to stay in the Uk. If i Could stay in the UK and play I would be interested.

It all started in 2006 when I was bored in Bangladesh my Grandad (R.I.P) didn't have cable and they only had BTV. I only understood the cricket and the 10Pm News ever since then I have always been watching Bangladesh.

And Back-Up Plan-Finance I'm Alright on both of those. If I Seriously Consider this I would've picked to be a Pilot or a F1 Driver and My Dad owns a company IN BD so wer'e good Finanicaly.
