I liked two NAFEES in the top...........
But i will never want to see Khaled Mashud being replaced in another 5 years..........i am a big fan of PAILOT.........and i beleive he is the cricketer who will always give 100% for the team whatever the situation is.........

I am not sure how Javed Omar is going to turn out in this series, so we will wait and see. But Pilot definitely has a few more years to give us. I do hope to see this line up click for us. The only person I am not sure of is Talha, but there are lot of young pacers already started roaring to make their mark such as Rassel, Polash etc.

By the way, I forgot to mention Rafiq. He will provably retire on his own term.

And, I don't see any replacement for Bashar as yet.

Talha is a class act. In my opinion he was much over-boweld at his tender age and inevitably broke-down. He wasn't bowling that slow either. So give the kid an opportunity to come back. Mark my word, inshallah, he'll be a star!

fwullah
May 15, 2005, 04:54 AM
Seems like its a batting wicket? Otherwise, Sussex wouldn't bat first.

The BD line up does look like a future BD team - except for Habibul Bashar, the rest are under 24 on average.

Bangla amar Maa

Rajib needs to bowl few yorkers now to stop the run rate once again it's too early in the morning ...Montgomerie is big wicket to get him out it's not easy .....

well, I heard that yorkers take a lot out of you. wasim akram said that he'd rather bowl 4 bouncers than a yorker. Maybe its too cold to attempt to put so much into each ball...

Mortaza's economy rate is gradually going down. So is Shahadat's as well

get that montgomerie (s.o.b)out..

Have faith, brother! They're going at both Rajib and Talha to unsettle 'em and so far have succeded. It has happened many times b4 in cricket!

Talha and Rajib will come back

should not we try aftab now? talha could be bring back once montagamarie is gone. seems like he loves facing talha. shahadat was no good but better.

tansir
May 15, 2005, 05:39 AM
Talha's settling down. He's more experienced than Rajib. Also, we shouldn't forget that Rajib bowled against a much weaker side.

amim
May 15, 2005, 05:39 AM
Let's not forget the field settings were not changed by the captain. He bowled 2 over and went for 16. That's 4 fours which is not a big deal at all.

Sussex is must stronger side. They are like the best country side though they are resting Mushy and few other players. For bangladeshi's cold is affecting them so it seems like fast bowlers are facing problems.

Anyway Shahadat should be selected even if he doesn't do well today because he is still better than tapash .... i wonder what would have happened to tapash with Sussex .... i think they would have smashed him all over the park as well. So it's talha's turn to bowl well now.

mahbubH
May 15, 2005, 05:39 AM
Talha is improving .. 3 runs from his last over.

BanCricFan

I think Talha bowled his last over better. Lets see if he can continue to bowl like this the next few overs.

Bashar might have done the right move caz he doesn't wanna see Shadat's confiedence goes down , that's why talha is on .

Rubu

i think they would have smashed him all over the park as well. So it's talha's turn to bowl well now.


In fact, it is my opinion that Tapash would have been the ideal bowler for us to bowl in this condition - other bowlers are getting smashed, and this is the ideal situation for Tapash Baisya to come in and either take a few wickets or keep the run rate down.

In 2001 R Montgomerie scored century against the Australian team:

"Sussex were in the driving seat at the close on the first day against Australia after rattling up 355-4 declared from 81 overs before reducing the tourists to 19-2 by stumps.

The county's prolific opening pair Richard Montgomerie and Murray Goodwin both scored hundreds and then Billy Taylor made early inroads into Australia's batting by removing Justin Langer and Ricky Ponting. "

Honestly does tapash look like a fast bowler at international level .... it's no surprise that bangladesh's cricket standard comes under lot of criticism. If we keep having bowlers like tapash this will continue. Unless we introduce quicks like rajib who can give Warne a hard time when he faces him, then Warne will not criticise us because he will not find it difficult in the middle if short pitch bowling is directed at his body.

Tapash won't even make it into a Sydney club team's 1st XI.

There are state level comp. where 6 states compete.

Then there are Grade cricket. We have about 10 grades.

Good 1st grade teams wouldn't pick tapash because they picked Lee and with NSW state he played 1 season and then got into Australian side and got 5 wickets on his debut against Indians in 99-00.

Irrespective of tapash's inclusion in playing XI for the lords test match, we need to admit that tapash is not a fast bowler of international standard but you all know that Mashrafe is and infact Whatmore wanted him to be in top 30 list to take on Australia.

We need more Mashrafes or even better but no tapash thanks.

Don't expect too much from Aftab's bowling. This is the time our main bowlers trys and gets into a rhythm. Aftab can be given a chance to bowl for a few overs to see if he can brake a partnarship or things like that. Aftab is not going to be bowling a lengthy spell anyways at Lords.

Yes he was successful on couple of occations, but those were real rare cases for him. I will be, however, be really happy to see him does something with his bowling along with his extraordinary batting talent.

Sussex in charge after opening day against Australia

Bruce Talbot

August 8, 2001

Sussex were in the driving seat at the close on the first day against Australia after rattling up 355-4 declared from 81 overs before reducing the tourists to 19-2 by stumps.

The county's prolific opening pair Richard Montgomerie and Murray Goodwin both scored hundreds and then Billy Taylor made early inroads into Australia's batting by removing Justin Langer and Ricky Ponting.

Sussex's openers put on 202 after the county had been put in by Adam Gilchrist; their third partnership of over 200 this season.

Goodwin was stumped off Simon Katich after making 105 including 17 boundaries, most of them thumped with power and timing through the off side.

It was the Zimbabwean's sixth century of the season, but Montgomerie went one better and passed 2,000 runs in all cricket when he reached his seventh century.

He eventually fell for 157, caught at slip off Damian Fleming with the second new ball. It was overdue reward for Fleming who saw Montgomerie dropped by reserve 'keeper Wade Seccombe in the second over when he'd made just one.

Acting captain Adam Gilchrist's bowling options were reduced when Ashley Noffke had to be carried off with a sore ankle after he'd trodden on the ball in his ninth over. The luckless Noffke had earlier spilled Montgomerie on 32 when he top-edged a hook off Brett Lee down to fine leg.

Sussex skipper Chris Adams chipped in with an unbeaten 66 and his enterprising declaration soon paid dividends.

Taylor ensured Langer's miserable tour continued when he trapped him lbw on the back leg and in his next over Ponting flicked the ball off his legs straight to Montgomerie at square leg.

Enamul is going for a boundary nearly every over. Wish rafique was playing today.

Getting wickets will be tough. Don't panic they will declare and let us bat for 10 overs today.

They scored 355 for 4 in 91 overs against an Aussie attack led by Lee, Fleming, Noffke, Miller.

So they will score 350 today against us and they may infact score 400 today if the current run rate is any indication as to what may happen next.

Masrafee is not *FAST*. He doesn't have ability to take wickets with speed alone. He is just fast enough to cause trouble with swing and variation.

Shahadat's victims include Adnan Akram who averages over 54 and the keeper Josh who averages 46 in 1st class cricket.

So in his 5th first class he did well and the other 2 victims are bowlers. It's the econ. rate and no extras were given that makes it look even more majestic.

Have you noticed how many players they have been introduce in test arena or ODI for last five years?

They never tried producing player but expecting miracle by introducing new new and new player.

In this way they destroyed Bulbul, Minhajul, Akram the most prominent cricketer in our country.

Still they are running in the same process. What are the point changing four players, four players at a time for no reason?

This keep changing process we must stop if we expect better performance from our players.

Let's see if the bowlers settle down in the post lunch session. Sussex, unless they are all out will likely declare. Our batsmen have to take the game to them.

don't worry english batsman will hammer all our bowlers. The best bowler would be mashrafe and the rest .... who knows what will happen ?

They will want to bat well before Ashes begins.

Sorry!!! I might not able to explain what i mean to say as i am not very good in english.

Can you just answer how many test cricketer or ODI cricketer we have since we are test playing country?

I just mean to say ...... our cricket mangement is playing far more cricket then our players play in the ground.

Nine from Enamul first over. Why is he bowling anyway? The ball is 30 overs old, the wicket is still new, this is the time to bowl your seamers. Enamul will be much more useful later on, and especially in their second innings!

A few overs before lunch is fine, but I just dont see any logic behind starting with him after lunch!

Hove usually has pretty flat tracks. This is probably another one of those. After all, they won the toss and batted.

Enamul should stop now:umm:

Well.. I think.. the captain is doing fine by still keeping Enamul to bowl. He is an attacking bowler and soon he will hit back. And.. Once he gets his first. he will get more.

I think that has got a lot to do with Bashar not having toured England before; plus we have played over 6 months at our home which had Bashar to be over-confident in our (young) spinner.

In other words, the same problem occurs to inexperienced captains like Taibu who comes to the sub-continent for the first time, who was more comfortable in bowling the pacers than the spinners - in Bangladesh last January (for an example).

if we are this vulnarable against a 2nd string sussex team what gonna happen on may 26th? :(

exactly and people like botham, warne, are proven right when they make their comments about BD

we are now seeing also why 2 spinners are not that good a idea even though 1 is playin today.
