Ibadat reminds me of Mohammad Irfan, says Aaqib

Former Pakistani fast bowler Aaqib Javed praised Abu Haider Rony, Abu Jayed Chowdhury, Ibadat Hossain and Abul Hasan Raju as the future Tigers stars after he worked with the pacemen in the High Performance camp as the consultant for the past few days.

The 43-year old arrived in Dhaka last week and is expected to leave on Friday.

I wrote a few names like Ibadat Hossain, Abu Haider, Abu Jayed Chowdhury and Abul Hasan. I think Raju has potential but he had injuries, problems with confidence. He has got pace, good body and action. But he has to come out of that phase,” Aaqib told the media on Thursday.

Ibadat is bowling 138-140 (kmh) with his physique. Coaches told me he will go back and join the Air Force and stop practising. I think somebody should give him a contract or a job that is related to cricket. He reminded me of Mohammad Irfan.

We worked on him (Irfan) for six months and made him ready for first-class cricket. If he can build a decent body, he can be a future Bangladesh fast bowler,” he said.

According to Aaqib's philosophy, it's not that practice makes a man perfect rather he informed that it's the intelligent hard work that leads towards betterment.

There are different traits the bowlers have – Shoaib Akhtar, Brett Lee and Shaun Tait had pace. Joel Garner and Irfan had bounce. Survival with swing and some pace – Shaun Pollock, Chaminda Vaas and Mohammad Asif,” Aaqib explained.

Then people who have to create illusions with difficult actions – [Lasith] Malinga, Mustafizur [Rahman] and Sohail Tanveer. If you know which category you belong to, then your life will be easier. You’ll have a better understanding of your role in the team. You will focus on different things.

I have seen people bowling 130 with the mindset of Brett Lee. Getting smashed. We discussed awareness of yourself. Once you do, you will have understanding of the challenges in front of you,” he said.

Aaqib added that whatever knowledge he imparted to the Bangladeshi pacers in the last week or so will prove to be more than enough.
