Habibul Bashar said : "It is now just important to start playing. I don't want to ponder on the negatives like not having proper preparation or not playing cricket for a long time. If we get the chance to play then that will be the biggest positive for us. I think we should be positive about it and start playing whenever we get the opportunity," External link

Habibul Bashar said : "No, if you consider the time we have been passing due to the fear of the coronavirus pandemic, I would not want to be bored. I never enjoy watching those matches [the 2007 World Cup wins] because both were one-sided affairs," "If you are talking about historic importance then it's a different issue and I will make a list that will not go with what I make for this moment, as I want to memorise those matches that give me immense pleasure because of their competitiveness," External link

Habibul Bashar said : “It is tough to make a statement on that [Mashrafe’s selection as a player] at the moment. He is not like the other players that we have. He is different and is a special case for us and him playing is a big thing. It is a big decision coming from him [to step down as captain]. I believe he still has a lot to give to Bangladesh, if he has the fitness,” External link

Habibul Bashar said ( about Hasan Mahmud ) : “Hasan is a genuine fast bowler and I think the brightest among young pacers in terms of pace. You need extra pace while playing international cricket and this guy has that additional advantage. You need either 140+mph pace or swing when you play international cricket and unfortunately, we don’t have any one like that right at this moment. Hasan has got the potential to fill that deficiency,” “We have to handle him in such a way that his pace won’t be compromised,” External link

Habibul Bashar said ( about Hasan Mahmud ) : “There was not any option for us as our left-arm spinners did not do well in the BBPL. We thought that it would be better to give leg-spinner Aminul Islam Biplob enough chance while off-spinner Mahadi Hasan has been performing well. Both have a very good chance to play,” External link

Habibul Bashar told : “We are getting a lot of players from the Under-19 side. Players like Anamul Haque, Soumya [Sarkar] have all come to the national side from this level. So, I hope that we will get some players from here for the future. Look, I think to be the champions or not at this level is not very important. If we can be champions, it would be great. But if we can’t, then I would be more than happy if we can get four-five good future players, just as we have been getting players in the past,” External link

Habibul Bashar said : “The path is there for the players. But not everyone can make it through this path. Only the ones who can adapt, survive. The system is fine, the players from under-19 emerge and they play in High Performance (HP). So, the system here and in almost every country is fine,” External link

Habibul Bashar said ( about Mustafizur Rahman ) : “It is a concern because we are missing the real Mustafizur for the past one year. There is no yorker in Mustafizur’s bowling, he had wonderful yorkers before. Slower deliveries are still there while his pace is also increasing. Now he is bowling in good pace. (But) yorker is missing. He is becoming predictable. This is my concern. Batsmen are able to predict what is he is going to do,” External link

Habibul Bashar said ( about Mustafizur Rahman ) : “I think he [Mustafizur] should think. The batsmen and the bowlers think after the match about what is happening. It is high time that he should think about the batsmen predicting, or should he go into the second plan,” External link

Habibul Bashar told : “The squad will be announced today [Friday]. Actually, we had submitted the team beforehand but maybe for some reason the official announcement took some time. It is almost the same team that played in the Emerging Cup as the concept of the SA Games and that of Emerging Cup are very similar, so we did not change the squad too much. Also, these players have been playing together for a long time now for the Emerging team and we did not want to change that,” External link

Habibul Bashar added : “I don’t think pink ball is the major concern and what I personally feel is that batsmen should not have big problem seeing the ball. Batting first was not a problem because if you are unable to bat, then that would be the case with the second innings also,” External link

Habibul Bashar said ( about Hasan Mahmud ) : “Hasan is a genuine fast bowler and I think the brightest among young pacers in terms of pace.

You need either 140+mph pace or swing when you play international cricket and unfortunately, we don’t have any one like that right at this moment.
