Welcome Ajantha Mendis

I will start my write Up with some points-

1)Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Vvs Laxman are known as fantastic four on Indian Cricket. All together They have made 30,000 + run in Test cricket.

2) Indian Batsmen are simply masters against spin bowling . I can give Instance

of two Occasions.

Shane Warne is undoubtedly the all time best spinner In the world. But Indian Batsmen were always a big mystery to him. After getting testing time from even

Indian Tale ender, he made comments that

“ The Indians play spin even in sleeping.”

Pakistani great Abdul kadir told his experience of one India-Pakistan series against

Gavaskar and VengSarkar. While he tried to do his major weapon Google , even

From Non Striking end both Gavaskar an vengsarkar were shouting “ GOOGLE.”

He was frustrated. So The biggest test of a spinner to play against Indian Batsman.

We know Murali very well. But I am spell bound to See Ajanta Mendis. Srilanka

Is champion to provide natural unconventional talent. Sanath Jayasuriya , Muthiah MuraliDharan, Lasith Malinga have already proved and now new addition is Ajantha Mendis.

He is a new discovery of world cricket. Now, we are starting to forget essence of Test cricket.

Now this game is become the business of the Lalit Modis. But Natural Talent like Mendis is Fresh Air in world Cricket.

He is an off spinner . But he can equally give Google and Doosra . Most important is

His bowling grip and he hold it like Carom. So his carom grip is getting popular.

Even four greats of India can’t read him.

We have great expectation from this wonderful discovery of the world cricket.

I wish I would have a time machine and I want to go back on 1960 .My destination is Newyork of 1960 .I like to ask pandit Nehru , " Does he have enough

cougrage to see current India?." I am sure next genaration of India

won't remember,

'Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Sukarno of Indonesia and Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia

Have founded an international organization called The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) an of states considering themselves not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. It was founded in April 1955". The purpose of the organization as stated in the Havana Declaration of 1979 is to ensure "the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries" in their "struggle against imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, Zionism, and all forms of foreign aggression, occupation, domination, interference or hegemony as well as against great power and bloc politics. Now all those words look like a fantacy.

It is 2008. Equlibrium of the power is effected lots after cold war. No countries are divided any more in NATO or the Warsaw Pact.

United States of America is become not only the Super power but also become the

Capcital of defense and Economy.

I wish I would bring Mr Nehru to 2008. He even could see,' how his own party is desperate to execute the Nuclear deal". Now India is become strategic partner of the USA. Indian left force has already withdrawn the support from UPA Government. CPM GS Mr Prakash Karat has already taken a strong stand against the Govt . Rediff has already given some back ground in here

The Left-UPA divorce on Tuesday capped a tumultous relationship on several thorny issues -- ranging from the Indo-US nuclear deal to the rising prices of essential commodities and the government's inclination to open up financial and retail sectors to foreign direct investment.

After agreeing with the UPA's Common Minimum Programme and extending their support to the Congress-led coalition when it came to power, the Left continued to maintain that the government should not deviate from it.

The trouble became pronounced when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made his first official visit to the United States in July 2005 and signed a joint statement with President George W Bush, which the Left said was taking India closer to the American strategic interests.

Singh's visit had followed that of then Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee who had signed the Indo-US Strategic Defence Framework Agreement, which led to increasing military ties and joint exercises between the two defence forces.

The Left, which had been opposing the government's "neo-liberal" economic policies, opened another front against its foreign policy while accusing it of ignoring the CMP.

In the context of the rising inflation graph, the outside supporters made a series of recommendations, including banning of futures trading and slashing of taxes and duties on oil products, but complained that their views were not considered by the government.

Now what is so special about this agreement-

Hindustan Times has some interesting Notes in here.

Indian Ex President Dr Abul kalam Azad is taking key roll to execute this deal.

After shocking death of brilliant Rajiv Gandhi the whole political scenario of sub continent has changed. This agreement will give free passage of USA to sub continent.

At last I want to say Good Bye Pandit Nehru. India is changed now. India will

Follow the policy of a Chief executive officer of New East India Company. Now a

Days Robert clive is become old fashion. This is the era of Multi nationals. Dr Monmohan Sing is a Successful CEO of new East India Company .

Poor display of Bangladesh and Future

Bangladesh cricket is again passing testing time. We have finished our run in recent Asia Cup. We know all sorts of scrutinise and Investigation will be made . Too many

Scholars will give several opinions but result will be a big Zero. But my opinion is

Plain and simple , we are doing too many experiment. I can compare this team with

Current Bangladesh Government . we do ‘t have any idea who has actually run the

Team. While Srilanka came to the test cricket , they always maintained a standard. They did have behind a great school cricket infra structure . They were getting limited success in the international cricket . but they made their presence felt.

Duleep Mendis, Roy Dias got respect from the world cricket while Arjuna Ranatunga and Aravinda –de -Silva had entered to the cricket as future great. Gradually we got the greatest names of world cricket Muttiah Muralitharan, Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara , Mahela Jayawardene and other greats . while they

end their carrier they will do have equally personal and team success. This was the continuation. Only one Sir Garry Sobers, Dave whatmore and Tom mody did not change the Lanka cricket. Lanka officials did have a long term plan but that does not mean Srilankan media has ruined the other sports of the country as our media ditched our football. They do

have star like Susanthika Jayasinghe . Now If we look at Bangladesh crciket without any doubt

Bangladesh team did not maintain same squad even in one tournament. Our resource is limited but

We show the luxury to drop our best players off and on. Our A team does not have big diffrence with

The main team. What is most important right now , We should maintain best 17 at least next 2 years and besides we have to make our reserve banch strong. Team composition should be like that

Tamim Iqbal ,Mohammad Ashraful , Raqibul Hasan Mushfiqur Rahim ,Alok Kapali , Aftab Ahmed, Mashrafe Mortaza , Abdur Razzak, Shahadat Hossain , Shahriar Nafees, Shakib Al Hasan, Syed Rasel, Rajin Saleh, Tapash Baisya, Dhiman Ghosh. Enamul Haque jnr

These are the players who have impressive track record in last some years

On every form of cricket. Now National selectors should maintain this 17

Or do plus minus one or two. Cricket is a process. We need good leader ship

As well. We do have batsmen of class like Mohmmad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed and Alok kapali who can destroy any level of bowling in their best day. Tamim and Sakib are even not behind. Mushrafe and Razzak could give best challenge to any team any time. So we have to ensure that those players should get confidence from selectors that they

Will not be thrown out of the team because of one or two bad performance. Besides we need a captain who can equally lead from front with performance and represent the team with best leadership quality. Ashraful is a great asset for this team. A team like Bangladesh can’t afford to loose one Asharful, Aftab or Alok.

Still after that my bet is for Shahriar Nafees or Alok Kapali.
