Aftab is out fors sure due to fever. But, the team selection is nothing but BaM's speculation. Janakanta or no other paper projected today's playing eleven.

Janakantha did post who are playing in the team just read their sports . It says Rajib and Shariar Nafees in the team also about the rest too .

Ok, BaM, u r right, I am wrong. Still, the selection u posted is nothing but Janakanta's speculation. This is not the right thread to do that. Officially, no side has yet declared their playing eleven.

May 10, 2005, 02:49 AM
TheWatcher, please leave the filtering of speculation to the moderators, personal annoyance with certain posters nothwithstanding. In this case Janakantha certaily did post a starting 11 under the headline "Bangladesh Dole Tin Pacer". The newspaper may be totally off, but you can't attribute that creativity to BaM.

Having said that Bangla amar Maa, take it easy will ya? We have a whole series ahead of us. Don't use up all your good Karma. Also, please try and read your posts aloud once or twice before hitting the submit button and rectify any blatant grammatica flaws. Your run on sentences are tough to decipher.

anyway we will see it when the match is underway , they never said it's probable 11 anyway who knows but ya shouldn't have said that's my speculation for today's match as it was from the daily newspaper from their sports reporter ....... they might be wrong ya never know , just hope for the best .

Latest update from Taif at the ground:-

Play is unlikely to start before lunch as it is raining, but it is not heavy. It will require about 2 hours to dry up the outfield.

DId it start raining long before the game start time ? DId, at least, the "Toss" take place ? :(

Sam

So we are going to start with a rain delay. It’s a typical English early summer. I think it's also a thing, which required to be get acquainted with by our players.

I don't get it, it didn't rain that much over here. There hasn't been much sun though either....

It has stopped raining. Play should get underway once the outfield and has dryed up.

Possibly looking at around a 2.00pm start.

Even if he were not sick, practice matches should be used for trying out alternative batsman. With this 6 Bat/4 Bowl combination, we just have one replacement in batting. Its better to keep everybody match-ready.

Bilat Ferot
There was a time when people used to go to England for achieving excellence—in education, Law, Administration, everything.
Upon their return from England, people used to call them “Bilat Ferot” and they used to get huge respect.
I guess after this tour, we can also call our cricket team “Bilat Ferot”.
Not sure whether they will perform good enough to earn people’s respect though.

Our players need the sense of confidence...does not matter even it is fake. You can turn confidence of reasonably confident team into overconfidence with the trick of giving sense of fake confidence. But if the team lack in confidence, a fake sense of confidence with rebuild their motivation. This English trick may be effective for Australia, but not for Bangladesh.

When I was serving in the Army, my instructors used to say..."Stay motivated. If you are not motivated, fake your motivation. Even fake motivation will give you enough strength to fight for survival"

I think even Bangladesh gets the fake sense of confidence---it is real good for them.

Thats a way to correlate events.
But i guess BD Batsman do not follow any trend.
They dont follow any gradual trend to do bad.
Again, they dont even need any gradual progessive trend to do good. One day they are scoring 0's, 5's annd 10's..next day you see they are scoring 158's!!. Again in does not take long to come down from 158's to 0's.
