Needs to play one complete season of first class cricket and tour with A team. Should be regular in ODIs without any doubt.

We should carefully handle him, such a talent he is.

^^ Dropping him from test would not hamper his confidence as ODI opener. He just needs to consider him as an ODI specialist player.exactly the way Mominul needs to consider him as test specialist. Having a bad track record in LOI did not hamper Mominul in test matches.

On the other hand, Soumya Sarker's FC record is horrible! If your domestic FC average is in mid-20s then you're bound to fail in international matches. I have always viewed him as a talented LOI specialist player with bit of shot selection issue which can be rectified by playing more ODI matches.

Please do not select him for test matches. However, Soumya should be selected as aggressive opener in LOIs in order to take full advantage of 1st Power-Play.

Is He GOOD Enough...

He is only elegent but lack technic big time.
Like Kapali or Ashraful.
His list A avarage is 31. He played in 2012,13 DPL scored no 100 avaraging 26/27.
Suddenly one season success and selectors picked him straight ignoring litton Das(top scorer),Rony Talukdar and others. They performed more well and also did good in previous matches too not one season wonder. Actually even if you consider 14/15 league Soumya was 3rd or 4th maybe and Rony(1st) and litton Das(2nd). So I was furious about that and thought Soumya has relatives in BCB.. But after I saw him play in ZIM series where he scored 20 of 17 I could understand why coach and selecters were so interested about him. Bcoz he owzes class which I didn't see in BD players after Kapali or Ashraful.
But he have major temperament issue to deal with. He don't have any idea when to go for it. He seems clueless at the start of his innings. Even I can see he trys to play too often in off side but play horrible in leg side. Soon all will figure out that. Like all did in domestic already. That's why he hasn't scored a single 100 playing 60+ FC matches ! against guys like BD general domestic players. Our FC is poor. Even under 19 players aging 17/18 can be in 11. Also guys like Hom,Ayub scores tons even Tushar Imran in his comeback scored a 100 in last season. Really a horrible stat with avarage of 27. Isn't it strange for a elegant player like him.
So only elegence will not win you anything. You need proper work ethic and most importantly proper mentality to handle it. That Ashraful and Kapali lacked. You see guys like Shakib with medicore unorthodox technic is comparatively more successfull. Also Bijoy and previous Nafees did better than Ashraful despite lack of elegence. Actually in BD players they have poor technic and good temperament or good technic and horribly poor temperament.
My previous experience with over hyped elegent players are not good. So I can only hope Soumya can change his MIND but I don't see it at least for now..
I hope Litton Das or Shadman Islam Anik is different. I hope he is not a dommestic bully and offer good performance in future. We really need a world class batsman in our side who can go for a big. Tamim and Mushfiq are good. But I am talking about being in top 5 in ICC rankings and who owzes class and elegence.

I am sure you noticed Soumya gets starts in most of his innings. That by itself is a good sign for me. Likes of Anamul, Mominul will either do well, or get out within an over or two. And even in these starts, Sarkar is very comfortable, not troubled by any means.

Yes he gets dismissed in unnecessary ways. Like a needless run out or flashing at a delivery down leg side which would have been wide. This is an area where he definitely needs to improve.

But the fact that he can occupy crease, and do so by scoring at healthy S/R elevates him above many of our other batting talent. Great find for BD cricket, lets hope the lad keeps working hard and doesnt take his place for granted.

I believe this guy is a huge talent and looks really at ease against high quality international bowlers. He has a lazy elegance about him that reminds me of Laxman and Inzamam. The shots he played against pakistan on the way to his century were mind blowing. He paces his inning brilliantly as well. He looks equally good against spin and pace and can play shots all around the ground. If he can sort out his concentration issues he will elevate our odi team to the next level.

The type of belting he handed Pakistan-i cant imagine many Bangladeshi batsman from past or present doing even on their best days. Its a pity there was no mechanism to measure the sizes of sixes, but i am pretty sure some of them were massive. And it was amazing how he did it so easily through a perfect blend of power and timing.

Whereas, Sabbir reminds me of KP.

As I said, we need to persist with him. He is kind of a diamond, maybe rough around the edges. But if we can polish him and he works hard he will be priceless. The world cup was a joy because of him. I also feel he is the kind of batsman who will excel in bouncy or true pitches, i.e: ball coming to the bat easily sort of pitches instead of low, turning, sub-continental pitches.

SS will score another century in this series, and then all his doubters will vanish.

yes its too much burden for a young player like him to start in all three format at the same time...but I have a feeling he is that kind of player who plays better under more pressure.

He may need to learn how to build on good start, but when he plays... he plays with such an ease from the beginning and not rattled by past mistakes...he has all other element to be a very good player.


I just hope selectors and haturu daa is patient will him, and I am confident he will reward them back big time.

Test'a na khelanoi uchit. Too aggressive. I don't see him scoring consistantly with that type of approach in test. Clearly Mominul's recipe is the one to follow.

Unless the management takes the next test as preparation for the ODI series... then they can play him.

Soumya is doing well in shorter formats, while he is performing he should have a spot but BD cricket is getting to an interesting point, think, how many openers are doing well in domestics right now? Aside form tamim, soumya and imrul you have anamul, liton, rony, shadman, majid, even junaid and SN, maybe shamsur. Competition is high, at least for openers, and if someone in the national team has been off for a few series then with all these other openers lining up for a chance we should give them chances to, it should enhance competition and it gives a wider range of players international experience and that helps when players are injured and in long tournaments.

Now is the time for domestic cricket to move on from being a place to talent spot (with the national team being the development team), domestic cricket now has enough talented players for it to thrive and become the place for those talents to develop.

Of course if a player is selected they still need to be backed, but players should only get more chances when they've deserve and have earned it through performance, that doesn't mean they need a century or a 5fer every innings but they need to have some sort of performance and show good attitude and drive to continue to improve.

For soumya atm I think he should be kept away from the test side (he can develop that side of his game in FC cricket), he's doing well in ODIs so he can continue to get this international experience.

If he was to bat at 7 he could still be the wonderful stroke player in odi's. At 7 he can play his natural game and attack look to play shots, our top 6 looks solid at the moment. Long live Sarkar...

Only reason i think Sarkar is going to be at #7 for tests is so he can gain experience in international cricket but also he can bowl pace. Other then that i see no reason why selectors dropped Nasir from the test team. On top of that Anamul should really be tried at #7 in tests because he is also our future plus he can keep instead of Mushy.

although is too early to judge a player properly but still from the very first sight what i noticed of Sarkar is that he has got the proper technique of a genuine batsman but sometime bit lazy at his shots, he got the boldness, the aggression, he can time ball with good balance. So, I will go with him in test only that he is given the proper instruction to play test according to merit, which mean he shouldn't go for all along aggressive and attacking but to see off balls which require some skill to adapt, which is why he needs to be there as a genuine batsman whom i believe can become one of the finest batsman in our team. For that reason he needs some time with test squad, he is young he will surely adjust his place quickly, i believe.

Soumya has no clue whatsoever how to play longer version. Yes he is elegant and looks natural when it comes to playing strokes but he really needs to develop his game plan. Cricket is not all about showing how to play a mind blowing stroke. I will take a batsman who can deliver big runs rather than a beautifully crafted artistic 30. Atm Soumya is all about "beautifully crafted artistic 30".

And keep this bloke away from Tests for at least 2 years.

I want a separate keeper in tests but Anamul is not the solution. Anamul is a poor keeper. In fact Mushy is way better than Anamul.
