Especially As a Bangladeshi I love and respect Khawaja too. He should be the inspiration to any second generation born and raised Australian-Bangladeshi/Pakistanis. We have so many things that are too similar. We should be strongly attached to our religion and culture.

I know what you mean. I take pride in any Indian/Lankan/Pakistani-Americans if they do anything noteworthy. Must be a tough series for you since both your nations are going at it. Glad you are rooting for BD - we need it more than Aus.

Trust me I have seen enough of him to form an opinion, I have never seen a front-line batsman so clumsy against spin before, which is quite surprising considering his subcontinent connection, even in this match it almost seemed as if he was desperate to go to the other end, gifted his wk in the process

Roy always looked like causing trouble and is someone that would a threat in seaming conditions. Roy even bowled well in patches in NZ. So hence i think dropping him is very unfair and im also very disappointed about that.

But because he is not a big name in Bangladesh cricket no one will bring it up.

And yea it is in actual quote lmao.

cos Ashton Agar has done jack in internationals and is a very meh kind of domestic player. Khawaja been the undisputed top batsmen in Australian domestics for quite some time now and has also proven he is a capable international batsman.

Oh I see. Didn't know.

But what I've seen, feels like Aussies don't rate him much as a test player esp in Asian conditions.

It's obvious from his batting that he's more Australian than Pakistani

You're preaching to the choir man. I completely agree. He should be our 2nd pace option after Fizz, especially on seaming conditions. I'm hoping Hatura and selectors realize that and pick him up for SA tour. But unfortunately, our selection process is more like a popularity contest.

He says this now, but If he's good enough for Australia, there's no way he chooses to play for Bangladesh. More money, more cricket, more fame.

As an Australian-Bangladeshi I can promise you it's not very tough. Their players are an obnoxious bunch of %#@&s, many of their fans are boorish and aggressive, their media is insular to the point of farce and their commentators are a jingoistic affront to the senses.

The only thing that makes it tough is how desperately I want us to beat them.

It's Walshy. Ever since he joined, he has set his eyes on Shafiul and brought him back to national team.

Siddons had Junaid Siddiqui/Rokibul. Haturu has SS/Shabbir. Walsh has Shafiul. And fans has Tanbir Haider.

Australia getting quite multi cultural in cricket Dan Christian and Scott Boland are Aboriginal,and Sandhu and Fawad have played for Australia too.
Its good to see,very refecltive of the population.
I will give Usman the benefit of doubt to the end of the tour,but if he fails 2nd innings selectors may drop him for Cartwright.
