Default Pre-season review of National Cricket League 2007-08

Prelude
Domestic cricket represents the depth of cricketing strength for any Test playing nation. Bangladeshi domestic cricket, as may be expected from the newest member of the Test family, is still at a developmental phase. Bangladesh inherited a rich cricketing history, as it was initially part of Bengal and then East Pakistan. Dhaka Stadium (Current BNS) hosted Test matches during Pakistan era. After gaining independence it took a while to enter into the world cricketing arena.

In 1976-77 an MCC side first toured Bangladesh, which was followed, by unofficial and official tours by different teams of Test playing nations. Bangladesh gained associate membership of International Cricket Council (ICC) in 1976 and in 1979 first participated in the ICC trophy. In 1994-95 England became the first Test playing nation to send A team to Bangladesh. Bangladesh enjoyed limited success in ICC trophy and against different touring teams yet cricket gained enormous popularity in Bangladesh. Bangladesh finally won 1997 ICC trophy and qualified for the 1999 World Cup for the first time. After a dream 1999 World Cup in which they defeated Pakistan, Bangladesh gained the Test status in 2000.

At the time of gaining Test status there was no first class cricket league in Bangladesh. Prior to gaining Test status, Bangladesh started a national cricket league involving 12 teams that was not a first class tournament. During that time, Dhaka Premier Cricket League that is a limited over tournament was the main cricket competition in the country. Cricket league was played in almost every district town but all were shorter version of the game.

Bangladesh started its maiden first class competition under the name 'National Cricket League' involving six divisional teams (Dhaka, Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna, Barisal and Sylhet) Biman Bangladesh Airlines and Dhaka Metropolitan team from 2000-2001 session. A national one-day (list A) league also started from the same season. From the 2001-2002 season, National Cricket League involves six divisional teams. These six teams play each other home and away once in a league.

Roll of Honor of National Cricket League (First Class)
  • 1999-2000 Chittagong (not first class)
  • 2000-01 Biman Bangladesh Airlines
  • 2001-02 Dhaka
  • 2002-03 Khulna
  • 2003-04 Dhaka
  • 2004-05 Dhaka
  • 2005-06 Rajshahi
  • 2006-07 Dhaka
Roll of Honor of National Cricket League (List A)
  • 2000-01 Biman Bangladesh Airlines
  • 2001-02 Sylhet
  • 2002-03 Khulna
  • 2003-04 Chittagong
  • 2004-05 Rajshahi
  • 2005-06 Rajshahi
  • 2006-07 Dhaka
The domestic cricket standard of Bangladesh is yet to reach the standard of Test playing nations. Over the last five years Bangladesh made significant improvements in the domestic cricket infrastructure and cricketing standard. With current rate of progress it is expected that Bangladesh domestic cricket will reach its desired standard within 5-6 years.

Ispahani Mirzapore Tea 9th National Cricket League 2007-08

After two unscheduled delays, Ispahani Mirzapore Tea 9th National Cricket League is finally set to start on 19 October 2007. Matches will be played in seven different venues on home and away basis. Under new administration this will be the first domestic season and selectors have made some significant changes within the divisional squads. Here is the team-wise pre –season build up and performance review from Banglacricket:

Dhaka Division
Squad: Mohammad Ashraful (captain), Anwar Hossain, Uttam Sarker, Shamsur Rahman, Marshall Ayub, Al Shahriar, Sajjad Kadir (wicketkeeper), Nadif Chowdhury, Javed Omar, Mohammad Sharif, Mehrab Hossain (Jr.), Nazmul Hossain Milon, Arafat Sunny, Mahmudullah Riyad, Anwar Hossain Monir, Mosharraf Hossain, Mahbubul Alam, Shahadat Hossain Rajib, Mohammed Rafique, Mohammad Azim.

Ground: Fatullah Khan Saheb Osman Ali Stadium, Dhaka

2005-06 Position
  • First Class: 4th
  • One day: Runner up
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Al Shahriar (593 runs @ 39.53), Mahmudullah (425 runs @ 35.41), Javed Omar (376 runs @ 94.00)
  • One Day: Uttam Sarkar (346 runs @ 49.42), Al Shahriar (192 runs @ 19.20)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Talha Jubair (28 wickets @ 19.46), Mohammad Rafique (21 wickets @ 17.00), Mohammad Sharif (21 wickets @ 30.47)
  • One Day: Mohammad Sharif (26 wickets @ 26.73), Mehrab Hossain Jnr. (11 wickets @ 13.00)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: Champion
  • One day: Champion
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Anwar Hossain (548 runs @ 34.25), Uttam Sarkar (483 runs @ 37.15), Shamsur Rahman (434 runs @ 43.40), Marshall Ayub (429 runs @ 42.90)
  • One Day: Anwar Hossain (232 runs @ 58.00), Nazmul Hossain (225 runs @ 75.00), Mehrab Hossain (184 runs @ 92.00)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Mohammad Sharif (30 wickets @ 20.50), Mosharraf Hossain (24 wickets @ 21.54)
  • One Day: Rashedul Islam (8 wickets @ 31.12), Sharifullah. (7 wickets @ 32.57)
2007-08 Scenario for Dhaka
Defending Champion Dhaka is the most balanced of the tournament. In addition to the flamboyance of national players, Dhaka has stalwart performers like Anwar Hossain, Shamsur Rahman and Uttam Sarkar who are coming out of ages and played crucial role in achieving their title in 2006-07 season. Masrhall Ayub is showing his brilliance as an all-rounder and is a future for Bangladesh cricket. Another SLA Mosharraf Hossain is taking big wickets in NCL and Dhaka is well balanced when they are not getting the service of national players like skipper Mohammad Ashraful or veteran Mohammad Rafique.
Verdict : Dhaka is well placed to repeat last season heroics.
Prediction : Champion
Chittagong Division
Squad: Ehsanul Haque (captain), Gazi Salauddin, Dhiman Ghosh (wicketkeeper), Faisal Hossain, Nazimuddin, Elias Sunny, Tamim Iqbal, Nafees Iqbal, Wascorni Ahmed, Masumuddowla, Shabbir Khan, Tarek Aziz, Mahbubul Karim, Aftab Ahmed, Raihanuddin Arafat, Gazi Alamgir, Ashiqur Rahman, Kamrul Islam, Sajjadul Haque Ripon, Mahmuduzzaman

Ground: Chittagong Divisional Stadium

2005-06 Position
  • First Class: Runner up
  • One Day: 3rd
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Ehsanul Haque (955 runs @ 59.68), Gazi Salahuddin (628 runs @ 41.26)
  • One Day: Faisal Hossain (423 runs @ 60.42), Ehsanul Haque (249 runs @ 27.66)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Yasin Arafat (50 wickets @ 27.18), Elias Sunny (31 wickets @ 23.45)
  • One Day: Yasin Arafat (18 wickets @ 22.33), Faisal Hossain (11 wickets @ 13.27)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: 3rd
  • One Day: 5th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Gazi Salahuddin (791 runs @ 46.52) Ehsanul Haque (735 runs @ 43.23), Dhiman Ghosh (517 runs @ 34.46)
  • One Day: Dhiman Ghosh (324 runs @ 64.80), Mahbubul Karim (261 runs @ 65.25),
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Sabbir Khan (53 wickets @ 28.30), Saju Datta (21 wickets @ 23.52)
  • One Day: Elias Sunny (8 wickets @ 30.62), Mohammad Younus (6 wickets @ 24.50)
2007-08 Scenario for Chittagong
Despite having a formidable team, Chittagong’s achievement in the NCL is nothing special after winning the inaugural tournament in 1999-2000. Batting wise they have the strength to challenge any opposition but bowling is indifferent. Chittagong always depends on local blocks for success and the services of Aftab Ahmed or Tamim Iqbal is not crucial for them.
Skipper Ehsanul Haque and Gazi Salahuddin will be aiming to continue their run feast to increase their stake for a national call up. They have a very capable batsman Dhiman Ghosh behind the stump and Nazimuddin’s presence in the top order makes Chittagong one of the best batting sides of the tournament. Bowling is not penetrating enough to win first class matches. Sabbir Khan is the workhorse for them, but absence of Saju Datta might further dent their prospect. Wascorni Ahmed and Kamrul Islam have got the potential to become the surprise package of the tournament.

Verdict : Chittagong will be on the hunt if bowlers perform.
Prediction : 4th -5th
Rajshahi Division
Squad: Khaled Mashud (captain/wicketkeeper), Nayeem Islam, Anisur Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahman, Junaed Siddique, Hasanuzzaman Rozel, Jahirul Islam, Rabiul Karim, Rafiqul Islam, Mahbub Alam, Farhad Reza, Sohrawardi Shuvo, Saiful Islam Suhash, Mohammad Shajada, Delwar Hossain, Saqlain Sajib, Sumon Saha, Alamgir Kabir, Shafaq Al Jaber, Shakil Haider

Ground: Rajshahi Divisional Stadium

2005-06 Position
  • First Class: Champion
  • One Day: Champion
Leading run scorer
  • First Class: Nayeem Islam (559 runs @ 39.92), Farhad Hossain (515 runs @ 32.18)
  • One Day: Nayeem Islam (320 runs @ 45.71), Jahurul Islam (199 runs @ 39.80)
Leading wicket taker
  • First Class: Mushfiqur Rahman (39 wickets @ 18.64), Shafaq Al Zabir (25 wickets @ 20.04)
  • One Day: Shafaq Al Zabir (19 wickets @ 10.78), Kamrul Hasan (14 wickets @ 16.92)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: Runner up
  • One Day: Runner up
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Naeem Islam (586 runs @ 39.06), Anisur Rahman (494 runs @ 44.90)
  • One Day: Anisur Rahman (280 runs @ 70.00), Junaid Siddique (237 runs @ 47.40)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Mohammad Shahzada (34 wickets @ 15.82), Farhad Reza (24 wickets @ 15.79)
  • One Day: Mushfiqur Rahman (7 wickets @ 24.14), Saqlain Sajib (7 wickets @ 27.42)
  • 2007-08 Scenario for Rajshahi
Rajshahi, who lost their double crown to Dhaka in the last season, have the firepower to regain the trophy. In case of batting, Nayeem Islam is one of the most consistent performers of NCL history, Jahurul Islam impressed in the last NCL, and Junaid Siddique batted tremendously well on couple of occasions where Rajshahi sneaked wins from difficult situations.
Rajshahi is well balanced in bowling; Mohammad Shahzada has been the undisputed star of Rajshai in 2006-07 season, while Suhrawadi Shuvo has provided useful support with his slow-left arm. With backup bowlers like Farhad Reza and Shafaq Al Zabir, Rajshahi is well capable to pull out surprise wins like they did in the last two seasons.
Verdict : A balanced team for championship fight
Prediction : Runner up.
Khulna Division
Squad: Habibul Bashar (captain), Mustafizur Rahman, Jamal Uddin Babu, Imrul Kayes, Monirul Islam, Mohammad Salim, Nazmus Sadat, Nahidul Haque, Ziaur Rahman, Sahagir Hossain (wicketkeeper), Tushar Imran, Dollar Mahmud, Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak, Monjurul Islam, Syed Rasel, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Robiul Islam Shiblu, Shafiul Alam, Fariduddin Masud

Ground: Khulna Divisional Stadium

2005-06 Position
  • First Class: 6th
  • One Day: 6th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Nazmus Sadat (661 runs @ 55.08), Saghir Hossain (615 runs @ 32.36)
  • One Day: Nazmus Sadat (233 runs @ 38.83), Sajjadul Hasan (227 runs @ 32.42)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Ziaur Rahman (30 wickets @ 25.66), Jamaluddin Babu (23 wickets @ 21.34)
  • One Day: Ziaur Rahman (12 wickets @ 22.41), Nazmus Sadat (12 wickets @ 18.58)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: 6th
  • One Day: 6th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Majural Islam (564 runs @ 40.28), Sajjadul Hasan (445 runs @ 29.66)
  • One Day: Asadullah Khan (253 runs @ 50.60), Imrul Kayes (217 runs @ 43.40)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Manjural Islam (34 wickets @ 18.47), Humayun Kabir (23 wickets @ 32.91)
  • One Day: Murad Khan (7 wickets @ 44.57), Nazmus Sadat (4 wickets @ 24.00)
2007-08 Scenario for Khulna
On paper Khulna is the strongest side of the tournament, but as always will be badly hurt due to the absence of national players for major part of the NCL. Sad demise of last years leading performers Majural Islam and Sajjadul Hasan has further worsened the scenario. Dollar Mahmud and Nazmus Sadat must step up to compensate their last season failures while good contributions from opener Imrul Kayesh and fighting Sahagair Hossain can transform Khulna into a formidable side. Skipper Habibul Bashar’s quest to find his batting form can further boost Khulna.
With national bowling quartet Mashrafe Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Syed Rasel and Shakib Al Hasan, Khulna bowling is fearsome, but except Manural Islam they lack quality backup bowlers when the quartet will be on national duty. Young duo Dollar Mahmud and Ziaur Rahman need to provide effective support to Manjural for major part of the league.

Verdict : Lack of bench strength is the weak point and they have to fight hard to avoid the last place
Prediction : 5th – 6th .
Sylhet Division
Squad: Rajin Saleh (captain), Alok Kapali, Imtiaz Hossain, Golam Mabud, Golam Mowla, Golam Rahman, Saif Mahmud, Rezaul Haque, Tapash Baishya, Nazmul Hossain, Hasibul Hossain, Enamul Haque (Jr.), Saju Datt, Mushfiqur Rahim (wicketkeeper), Sirajullah Khadim, Nabil Samad, Sharifullah, Nizamuddin Ripon, Rashedur Rahman, Sadiqur Rahman

Ground: Sylhet Divisional Stadium
2005-06 Position
  • First Class: 5th
  • One Day: 4th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Golam Mabud (721 runs @ 37.94), Imtiaz Hossain (550 runs @ 30.55)
  • One Day: Golam Rahman (233 runs @ 38.83), Imtiaz Hossain (245 runs @ 30.62)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Hasibul Hossain (57 wickets @ 16.00), Enamul Haque (22 wickets @ 28.90)
  • One Day: Hasibul Hossain (17 wickets @ 24.82), Nabil Samad (11 wickets @ 11.27)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: 5th
  • One Day: 3rd
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Alok Kapali (744 runs @ 41.33), Imtiaz Hossain (654 runs @ 34.42), Golam Mawla (474 runs @ 43.09)
  • One Day: Alok Kapali (294 runs @ 73.50), Sadiqur Rahman (204 runs @ 40.80)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Nabil Samad (34 wickets @ 25.32), Alok Kapali (22 wickets @ 35.29)
  • One Day: Nabil Samad (8 wickets @ 24.12), Alok Kapali (7 wickets @ 28.42)
2007-08 Scenario for Sylhet
Despite some entertaining performances Sylhet is yet to prove them as a top side in the national cricket league. They are slowly but surely improving in every season but pre-season captaincy debate between Rajin Saleh and Alok Kapali will be blow to the upcoming Sylhet side. In addition to Rajin and Alok, sylhet is blessed with three Golam brothers (Golam Rahman, Golam Mabud and Golam Mawla) who are consistent performers of NCL. Inclusion of Mushfiqur Rahim as wicketkeeper-batsman will further boost their revival hope. Promising Imtiaz Hossain was one of the leading run scorers of last season and Sylhet will rely on him to launch a title bid.
Last year Sylhet has witnessed the revolution of Tapash Baisya as an all-rounder. He will spearhead the bowling department with likes of Enamul Haque Jr. and promising Nabil Samad. Competition between Sirajullah Khadim and Saju Datt fight for their place will definitely benefit Sylhet.

Verdict : A revolutionary year for Sylhet, but off-field captaincy debate should remain outside equation.
Prediction : 3rd .
Barisal Division
Squad: Shahriar Nafees (captain), Hannan Sarkar, Imran Ahmed, Raquibul Hasan, Nasiruddin Faruque, Shaheen Hossain (wicketkeeper), Abul Bashar, Arafat Salauddin, Ali Arman Rajan, Talha Jubair, Sajjadul Islam, Debobroto Paul, Lablur Rahman, Tarikul Islam, Humayun Kabir, Ahsanullah Hasan, Raisul Islam, Proshenjit Bose, Monowar Hossain, Ariful Haque.

Ground: Abdur Rab Serniabat Stadium, Barisal

2005-06 Position
  • First Class: 3rd
  • One Day: 5th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Imran Ahmed (589 runs @ 34.64), Nasiruddin Faruque (510 runs @ 46.36)
  • One Day: Imran Ahmed (302 runs @ 30.20), Hannan Sarkar (238 runs @ 23.80)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Arafat Salahuddin (34 wickets @ 20.64), Sajidul Islam (22 wickets @ 30.72)
  • One Day: Arafat Salahuddin (13 wickets @ 20.15), Monir Hossain (10 wickets @ 24.80)
2006-07 Position
  • First Class: 4th
  • One Day: 4th
Leading run scorers
  • First Class: Arafat Salahuddin (613 runs @ 43.78), Imran Ahmed (517 runs @ 30.41), Hannan Sarkar (513 runs @ 30.17), Roqibul Hasan (498 runs @ 83.00)
  • One Day: Roqibul Hasan (267 runs @ 66.75), Nasiruddin Faruque (213 runs @ 71.00)
Leading wicket takers
  • First Class: Tariqul Islam (26 wickets @ 33.00), Arafat Salahuddin (22 wickets @ 29.04)
  • One Day: Ariful Haque (8 wickets @ 21.50), Monir Hossain (8 wickets @ 34.87)
2007-08 Scenario for Barisal
Barisal is the fighting side of NCL and achieved considerable success despite their weakest side tag for the last two seasons. Not very different this year and we can expect to see another gritty Barisal team who can prove experts wrong. Batting remains the strength for Barisal with players like Shahriar Nafees, Hannan Sarkar, Arafat Salahuddin and wonder boy Roqibul Hasan filling the first four slots. Imran Ahmed and Nasiruddin Faruque are also making their presence felt in the domestic arena.
Good all-round performance by Ali Arman and Arafat Salahuddin coupled with comeback pursuit of Talha Jubair can cover-up their bowling weakness. Lack of national players can be a blessing in disguise for Barisal

Verdict : A fighting Barisal can surprise title contenders.

Prediction : 4th – 5th .

Added Syed Rasel to the quartet. Should have done before.

Dollar Mahmud and Ziaur Rahman are defnitely good but haven't tasted success like bowlers from other divisions.

I will be happy to be wrong.

Bhai, I am also from Khulna (although my home district is Madaripur). I was a student of Khulna Zilla School and Government laboratory school there. Played first division cricket in Khulna. Good old memories.

Judging by stats, Zia has not done much to justify the hype around him, but Dollar has sure shown good potential on many occasions. Also, don't forget Khulna can include Rubel Hossain (since he is from Bagerhat) in the team when the national team players leave the league.

Yap, divisional teams will be able to add 5 more players to their squad. These players might also change the equation.

About Dollar, I am not yet convinced about his ability. He is definitely good which I admitted before, but he needs to produce some match winning performances to count him as a top shot.

Mahir bhaijan, I will write a season review after the NCL is finished.

Thanks Nafis, I know you will write even better piece when you will reach my age. I was no way near to you at your age.

এবার বুঝতে পেরেছি, জ্বি ভাইজান আপনি চাইলে এটাকে Season Preview! ও বলতে পারেন।

Thanks bhaiya but it would probably take me 100 years to even come close to having as much knowledge as you and Sohel bhaiya and another 100 years to come even close to writing the stuff you and Sohel bhaiya write. But I hope it doesn't take me that much time as I wish to write some pieces like both of you before I die!!

Nafis bro, you are selling yourself short ...

I was quiet at your age, as I am now believe it or not, but so wonderfully pleasant and humble? Probably not. I pray that you go exponentially further than I ever will.

Thanks for the kind words BTW ...

Peace, Sohel.

PS: DD A.T.W ( Give 'em hell Ash as ONLY you can) !!! ... and ZSI ZIN.DA.BAD !!!
