Alok Kapali, The VVS Laxman of Bangladesh

England came to Bangladesh before their historical Ashes Victory of 2005.

Steve Harmison was one of the express pacers of that time. Bangladesh was struggling

Like any thing against his 155 km speed even in a dead track. They could not read even

the bouncer of him. But one Bats Man was simply fearless . Despite he has made the

28/30 only but while he was on the action It seemed , “ Cricket is the easiest game in the word”.

He is none other than Aok Kapali , A boy of my home town and who was grown up

In front of us. I don’t want to tell more but his in and out of the Bangladesh team is a

regular business. Actually After getting Test status Bangladesh never did any thing

good in longer version of game. I don’t count what we did in Last world cup. Because

There is illustrious history of the under dogs in world cricket. But I am surprised on activities of the selectors and decision makers of the BCCB. Despite having limited resources in hand, they show courage

to keep out the Calibre of the Cricketers like Md Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed and

Alok Kapali.

You can’t measure the talent of those cricketers by record book. Because Bangladesh

Cricket Infra structure is still pre matured to dream about one Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting

and Washim Akram. So If our main cricketers are worried about their places in the team how

can they give their best?

Alok truly proved his class by epic innings of 115 against India in last night in Karachi. I Just want to

Put some reference in here.

From Cric Info-

Alok Kapali's dazzling 97-ball 115 against India on Saturday could well prove to be the watershed of his career.’

From Criket Next-

“In the Bangladesh innings, Kapali produced a gem of an innings, giving Bangladesh the much needed momentum. It was prototype of a perfect one-day knock, quick running doubled with lusty hits. The dynamic batsman cleared the boundary at will, smashing Yusuf Pathan for two sixes in an over and then picking Gony over the cover boundary. Falling on the penultimate ball of the innings, Kapali hit five sixes and ten boundaries in his knock”.

Washim Akram, Harsha Bhogle, Ian Chappell all were really excited about his batting

Display. Local Media of Bangladesh has raised a question ‘ If Alok will go to deep sleep or not.”

My Answer is “ First Bangladesh Cricket control Board should stop day dreaming

and give confidence to our Cricketers about their place in the team”.

At last I want to say Alok reminds me the Indian great Cricketer VVS Laxman.

VVS is my most favourite batsman till date and he has same history of In and Out

He proves to Indian cricket one word “ Form is temporary but class is permanent”. My best wishes for Alok Kapali.
