Default BPL 2016 XI

Tamim Iqbal (476 runs)
Mehedi Maruf (347 runs)
Kumar Sangakara (370 runs) (Wk)
Mahmudullah Riyad (396 runs,10 wickets) (Captain)
Mushfiqur Rahim (341 runs)
Mohammed Nabi (19 wickets, 230 runs)
Dwaine Bravo (21 wickets,104 runs)
Farhad Reza (14 wickets, 104 runs)
Junaid Khan (20 wickets)
Shafiul Islam ( 18 wickets)
Mohammed Shahid (15 wickets)

Extras: Darren Sammy, Shabbir Rahman, Mithun Ali, Mosaddek Hossain)

Tamim and Mehedi are obvious options for the opening slot. But Sanga still managed to score a lot of crucial runs and lets be honest, DD was pretty inconsistent and he was the one that scored runs very consistently. Mushy was outstanding when his whole team was a complete failure. Nabi, Bravo are the standout allrounders... both contributing well in both departments. Junaid, Shafi and Shahid are obvious stand out bowlers and performed extremely well. Reza for me is a big reason why RK reached the final. He got them out of tight spots a few times and was great with the ball. Sammy and Shabbir are unfortunate to miss out mostly due to getting a proper combination but both of them deserve to make the best XI as much. Mithun Ali was a great surprise and the standout performer for Rangpur. And i just couldnt leave out Mosaddek. He batted all over the place but still performed very well and had some amazing performances.

Riyad is clearly the best performer and rightfully got the player of the series award. If he had Mushy's team or Tamim's, he would be in the final without a doubt.

Oh and BPL 2016 saw far better scoring then BPL 2015. Most of us were too busy complaining to notice that. Yea its still not upto the entertainment standards but thats mostly due to the batsmen rather then the pitch or conditions.

BPL 2015 had 2 300+ scores with the highest of 349 by Sanga
BPL 2016 had 11 300+ scores with the highest of 476 by Tamim

Huge huge improvement from last BPL. Hopefully it gets even better next year.

I would add Shakib ahead of Reza as I would want a left armer in these condtions. And DreRuss for his All round game, AND his lucky charm.

Once I get the final points table from N_W, I am going to do more analysis and insha Allah post my BPL XI and see if that matches yours.

nope.. Shakib has been pretty ordinary... terrible with the bat and expensive with the ball. No way he makes it ahead of Reza for me. I could swap Reza with Mosaddek but Shakib I wont agree. And Yea Russell makes any T20 team in the world but I picked my squad based on this tournaments performance where he didnt play enough to lead any chart

Good team but I would pick Mosaddek ahead of Farhad. Gazi ahead of Shahid.

Gazi was the guy who got rangpur so far with ball. Did okay with bat

Barring two or three games, This BPL was kinda a forgettable one for Shakib. I don't really care as long as he makes it up with match winning performances in NZ

LMAO mufi with your new avatar. I remember the time Feza had impressed Ian Chappel with his bowling against the Aussies. He apparently has excellent wrist positions.

I have always thought Farhad Reza is a better batsmen than bowler. more suited for longer formats methinks, bats with a straight bat this fellow.

Reza actually played really well this season. Why can't this HACK do the same thing in national team. Was really disappointed with Shakib. Barely any match winning contribution.

Whenever Farhad Reza is given an opportunity to play in the National team, he just can't produce and embarasses himself. Sigh.

Here is Isam's BPL XI. I agree with all except Sabbir. Barring one innings, he had a subpar tournament.

Quote:
1. Tamim Iqbal (476 runs at 43.27, SR 115.8)
Given his top position among the run-scorers, Tamim was an automatic choice. He spent much of the tournament trying to ensure his runs mattered for Chittagong Vikings, who failed to make it past the eliminator match despite having a strong line-up.

2. Mehedi Maruf (347 runs, SR 135.54)
Maruf's strike rate was the highest among openers who played at least 10 innings. He did not make many big scores but always provided Dhaka Dynamites with a fast start in the Powerplay. He is a good fielder too, and affected a crucial run-out to dismiss Sabbir Rahman in the final.

3. Sabbir Rahman (377 runs, SR 117.81)
Sabbir edged out Mohammad Mithun by virtue of one innings. His 122 against Barisal Bulls was the tournament's only century. Mithun had a better average and appeared more stable, but you would always want a gun batsman like Sabbir at No. 3.

4. Mahmudullah (396 runs at 33; 10 wickets, 7.41 RPO)
He was often a one-man show for Khulna Titans. For his exploits with bat and ball, Mahmudullah was the Player of the Tournament. He was consistent with the bat despite having to switch between roles of anchor and slogger, and though he bowled less this year, his last-over heroics in two matches ultimately took Khulna to the playoffs.

5. Mohammad Nabi (overseas, 230 runs, SR 174.24; 19 wickets, 6.47 RPO) Chittagong had great service from Mohammad Nabi, who won them matches with bat and ball. His reputation grew from the 2013 BPL, when he appeared for Sylhet Royals, but this time he was more involved by bowling up front and batting higher up the order.

6. Darren Sammy (capt) (overseas, 276 runs, SR 174.68; 6 wickets, 7.54 RPO)
By pulling Rajshahi Kings to the final with his leadership and crucial runs, Sammy was chosen ahead of Kumar Sangakkara, who made 370 runs, in the XI. Sammy brought his ability to inspire to a franchise that was making its debut in the BPL. His team talks, some of which were seen in the middle, seemed to bring everyone together. His big-hitting also won them a few matches, and there was also the odd breakthrough with the ball.

7. Mushfiqur Rahim (wk) (341 runs at 37.88, SR 134.78; 7 dismissals)
Because Sangakkara could not be fit in because of the limit on overseas players, Mushfiqur made it. He was the lone light in a dreary season for Barisal Bulls, who finished at the bottom. There was a marked improvement in Mushfiqur's wicketkeeping.

8. Dwayne Bravo (overseas, 104 runs; 21 wickets, 7.55 RPO)
Dhaka Dynamites wouldn't have been champions without Bravo's effervescence with the ball. He failed to take wickets in only two matches and collected at least three wickets in four matches. He was the highest wicket-taker of the tournament, which helped him stretch his lead as T20 cricket's highest wicket-taker.

9. Arafat Sunny (13 wickets, 6.29 RPO)
Sunny edged out Sunzamul Islam, Nazmul Islam and Rangpur Riders team-mate Sohag Gazi because he conceded only 4.02 per over in wins. Sunny was also the only Bangladeshi spinner among the top ten wicket-takers this season. But he had one sour note: his bowling action was reported by umpires for one delivery.

10. Shafiul Islam (18 wickets, 7.78 RPO)
In this unusually long injury-free period, Shafiul bowled better than he has ever done in a tournament. He ended with more wickets than Rubel Hossain, Mohammad Shahid and Taskin Ahmed, becoming the highest Bangladeshi wicket-taker in the tournament. But he eventually suffered a hamstring injury and missed the second qualifier for Khulna.

11. Junaid Khan (20 wickets, 6.09 RPO)
Junaid was the second highest wicket-taker in the tournament, grabbing the attention with a four-wicket haul in Khulna's first game. His pace, lengths and variation impressed even Wasim Akram, who tweeted that the performance should be noticed by Pakistan's selectors.

That list was going well too until Shakib was included. Don't think he has done anything worthwhile to be included in the BPL 2016 XI.

Ok, I don't think he did that good as well, was average to be honest .but here's why Cricbuzz's editors picked him...;

Quote:
. Shakib Al Hasan [226 runs, S/R - 126.25, 13 wickets, 6.84]

Despite not being at his best, Shakib has chipped in just about enough to merit a place in the team. As you'll go on to find out, the four overseas players are set in stone and among the local Bangladeshi talent, even a below par Shakib is better than the rest in terms of all-round abilities. Primarily, it's the control he's provided with the ball and the variety he offers being a left-arm spinner to make the attack look complete. Batting wise, he was a pale shadow of himself but his strike rate can be handy coming in the lower middle order.

Shakib performed well. He didn't have too much to do but he did score some runs and got wickets and good ER. Average yes. But extremely handy

he is number 21 at batting list (BPL), no half century, average 20
bowling number 13 with 13 wkt, highest wkt 2
win only 1 MOM, even though some one else was more qualified than him in that match
