Default The Jubair Hossain Likhon Thread

Incredible rise for the youngster. To get selected to play in a Test match for Bangladeshi having never played a domestic game in Bangladesh is an amazing story. Hope he has a long and bright future ahead.

Promising debut. Would be great addition to our bowling attack if he can improve from here.

Shane Warne's skill and charisma acted as a catalyst for the revival of legspin bowling worldwide, so it is hard to fathom why Bangladesh - a spinner-filled country - took so long to unearth a specialist wristspinner. And when they finally did, it happened quickly. Jubair Hossain, Bangladesh's 74th Test cricketer and their first specialist legspinner, had all of two first-class matches to show for experience.

"He has got a very mature head. That is the key," Shakib Al Hasan told ESPNcricinfo after Jubair took two wickets on his first day in Test cricket. "I never felt that he was nervous. It never felt like he was playing his first game. That's a good sign. He will have to keep working hard and do the right things. He still has a long way to go and I think he can win many games for Bangladesh.

"The way he bowled, it was inspiring for the whole team because as a legspinner, especially a debutant, you couldn't have expected too much, but I think he gave us more than that."

Popularly known by his nickname Likhon, Jubair not only broke into the Test team, leapfrogging an ever-lengthening queue of left-arm spinners, but also broke new ground. Bangladesh have had players who dabbled with the craft: Mohammad Ashraful used to get sharp turn with his wrist spin before he switched to offbreaks, and Alok Kapali once took a hat-trick against Pakistan but could only pick up three more wickets in his Test career.

You have to go back all the way to 1988 to find Bangladesh's last specialist legspinner, and Wahidul Gani is more famous for being the coach who discovered Ashraful. He was the first specialist legbreak bowler to play for Bangladesh but his debut ODI - against Pakistan in Chittagong - was also his last international game.

Once Bangladesh's squad for the first Test was announced, Jubair's debut was almost certain because there were only two other spinners to choose from and spin was going to be the weapon of choice against Zimbabwe. The captain Mushfiqur Rahim, however, held Jubair back until the last over before lunch. In those six deliveries, he gave a good account of himself - he tossed the ball up, got it to dip, and more importantly he did not lose his length, something that happens often with legspinners even at the top of their game.

He was part of the U/19 team, played few international matches at that level (and played well). But he missed out on U/19 WC'14 due to injury. He came in limelight as a net bowler when he was helping the national team batsmen to prepare against Amit Mishra, before the India series. Both Mushfiq and Tamim had difficulty playing him, Hathuri found him very impressive. Hathuri wanted him as the replacement for Gazi in the very next series, ie in the Tests against Windies. But selectors decided to hold him back and introduce him in a home series. He got his FC/list-A debut against Zim-A (two FC, three list-A match series), against whom he did fairly well. And the rest is now history.

Yep his 5 caps at top level were all against ZIM A last month. But I'll bet he will get a big DPL contract this year.

^^Not sure how big his contract is, but Abahani signed him during the player transfer in August (alongside many other U/19 players).

Then he probably got the minimum. 5 laks would be my guess.

Hopefully this one doesn't fade away like all our other spinners after a stellar debut.

As it is very well known that leg spin is a very difficult art to master, we should persist with him as Alhamdulillah, with him we have a complete package of spin attack, SLA, Off-breaks, Leg spin. wow, that completes the package. I guess, right now, him and taijul can take some load off Shakib so that Shakib can focus more on batting.


He is not bad, we need to handle him with a lot of care and if any chance in future he gets dropped like Nasir Hossain, we should keep him in the A team and still keep him in the loop.

Leg spin, you have to be really good at what you are doing, otherwise, one bad day can really tarnish your reputation.

He is very lucky to get the nod ahead of Nur Hossain, who looked very promising was rated very highly by all the bd pundits. He was deadly in U19 level and have enough experience of playing FC/A cricket.

I haven't seen much of Jubair, and won't rate him highly coz after a long time, a spinner making a debut for us failed to get a 5er in their very first match . So not good enough imho

So how did he bowl today? He got two wickets today but recently got overshadowed by Shakib and Taijul which is understandable.

Jubair bowled some excellent deliveries but bowled some poor ones too.

I think he could really turn the ball and has a lot of different deliveries in his armoury- flipper, leg spinner and the wrong un and he has the potential to use them quite well.

But one thing we need to keep in mind. You need a lot of consideration when it comes to handling a leg spinner. He will get hit for run in a match but can always produce you the goods. The problem with our team management is that if someone goes for runs even if he bowls well, he is immediately replaced.

Just wondering - if Jubair gets outperformed by those army of SLA bowlers in the upcoming domestic season, will the selectors still keep picking him for sake of variation?

^definitely keep Jubair. We already have Shakib obviously as an SLA and then Taijul. Leggies are the most rare and the most attacking. And who knows if he can continue to be successful, he could inspire young kids to become leg spinners which would be fantastic.

Noor is another player that should be considered. Don't know why BCB neglected him

^yeah and how many SLAs can we possibly play. Shakib+Taijul combo is good for Test. I am thinking if either Taijul or Jubair is ready for ODIs. Or is Razzak our savior there?

^i hope we stick with Jubair and Taijul in ODIs as well. They are our future, whereas Razzak's days are gone but I feel Razzak will get his chance in ODIS, get a lot of wicket against Zimbabwe and then flop in the WC. I hope I'm wrong but I doubt it

^Razzak is out of real match practice for a while. So maybe we can just get rid of him now when Taijul seems to be in good form. TJ (by the way that's what Mushy call him) looks ready for ODI. Not too sure about Jubair yet but should be in the squad and play 1-2 match.
