BD vs Ireland, 1st OD: Match Thread
should start in several hours now if there is no rain...this is gonna be a good match.

after thoroughly crushing Hong Kong even after batting poorly, we made a start to show that we do not belong in any "2nd tier." but it was just a start...we have to beat 2nd class teams by a fair margin all the time. we cannot afford to lose to 2nd rate teams...for every associate team we lose to, we have to beat 1 test nation to make up for it.

however, Ireland and Scotland are more important teams than HK. we need to win all 4 matches against them by at least 30 runs or 4-5 wickets.

There is no doubt in my mind that BD is not 2nd tier quality...but we arent at the test ranks yet....we're closer to test than 2nd tho...and inshallah in a few years we will be at the test rank.

Lets hope there is no frustration today.
Wish to see a decent victory over Ireland.

fwullah August 28, 2004 11:35 PM

Ahem, Hong Kong is an ACC team and Ireland+Scotland ICC Associate teams - there is a huge difference.

Rubu August 29, 2004 12:40 AM

problem! since they will have live coverage...

now, i've to wake up at 5:45am. its already 1:45am.

AsifTheManRahman August 29, 2004 01:12 AM

is there anywhere we can watch it online?

btw there's a huge gap between hong kong facing big guns for the first time in history and ireland in their own homeground with the fresh memories of beating zimbabwe, a couple of the english county teams and the WI chasing 290 odd.

SS August 29, 2004 01:14 AM

why bother watching it...
ireland scottland is far better team than go get a good night sleep
cuz next morning u might feel worse with the bad news on top of ur tiredness for lack of sleep...

Basri August 29, 2004 01:39 AM

I expect a win. Margin is immaterial for me. Because a win is a win.

Better go to sleep! Seems we cant even expect a win over Ireland, as others says.:(
Since there is a huge difference between Ireland & HK, we could be knocked out by them.
I wonder what would happened, if we lose to Ireland & Scotland...., I don't want to think about it.

fwullah August 29, 2004 04:35 AM

How soon do they update? Is it like Cricinfo (updates every 1/2 minutes, or like BBC (updates every 15 minutes)?

moin747 August 29, 2004 04:52 AM

Nazmul to bowl 2nd over

Basri August 29, 2004 04:54 AM

The website writes the match as a ODI. Is it so?

fwullah August 29, 2004 04:55 AM

We've got 3 debutants playing today. It seems Whatmore wants to see how they do first-hand WITHOUT hesitation.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:50 AM.
