It looks to me as though it may be raining for the whole match.

If the match is abandoned or curtailed due to rain we have an excuse for the Lord's test match - lack of practice!!

well it says light rain. so i doubt the whole game will be washed out. probably a couple of hrs in the morning.

Yeah, the forecast is pretty bad! Today has been a bad day in the south of England as well, been drizzling all day long. I think half the match against Northants atleast will be lost to rain, so the best we can hope for is some good batting practice for our top order. They will really be up against it with the cloud cover and amount of moisture in the air.

Sauron
May 19, 2005, 11:41 AM
With some morning rain, if we lose the toss, Northants will surely make us bat first.

If that happens, I doubt whether any lost time will matter after all. They'll probably have us all out twice in a day. :mad:

Oh well, hoping for a good performance with the bat, and at the same time bracing for another nightmare ;)

That will probably be blessing in disguise, there are good chances that the lord's pitch will also be wet from rain. So, if our batsmen can put their acts together against one of the weakest county bowling sides in such condition, they will be better prepared to face Harmy and Co.

Yep. Agreed. As far as the main purpose of this practice match goes, it will be perfect for Bashar & Co. to handle the willow on a rain-soaked morning.

But as far as the secondary purpose goes, which is to make us fans happy, a rain-soaked morning may mean tear-soaked pillows. :D

Bashar is not playing.
Pilot will captain the team.
Rafiq/Tapash also going to play.

-NTV news.

So it seems BD team is taking the 3rd match very seriously to restore their confidence and form.

Best of luck! :flag:

Squad Update (http://www.amardesh.net/news.asp?PSecID=11&SSecID=11&SID=S8)

Surprisingly, this report claiming both of spinners will be played in this match to figure out who is the fittest for Lord's test. I thought Whatmore knew better!

bd_cricket
May 19, 2005, 02:43 PM
I don't think finally they gonna include both Rafiq and Enamul against Northampton. With only two pacers (Taposh and Talha/Munir) it probably be a suiside.

TheWatcher
May 19, 2005, 03:07 PM
Well, as we discussed many times before- Aftab can provide the third pacer option as he is doing a decent job as a bowler lately. But, I think we need one of the fast-medium bowlers other than Talha to play in this match along Taposh. Prothom-Alo also said Masri and Rajib may not be given break at the same time.

Never mind, Mash and Rajib are not playing in this match for sure.

better the players rest and contemplate how they gonna play against england...

This is a foul team.Only 2 pacers and total 4 specialist bowler.Undoubtly they will score 600+.but i m happy to see Mushfqur rahim in the current squad.But we should be ready for another innings defeat.

tansir
May 20, 2005, 06:07 AM
Seems like the selectors have seen enough of Talha. The first choice pacers have already been selected: Masri and Rajib. The think tank is still to decide whether to play Tapash or Enam especially when Aftab is more than handy. The batters would be the ones played against Zim, including Rajin. These speculations could be drawn from the team selection. What really s*** is that Rajin would at Lord's. :E

Opinions that formed even before Munir played in England, are not valid opinions.

We obviously have some fans that do not "like" Munir. My question to them - Bhai shob, Munir apnader ki khoti korse? Karo sister ke prem prostab dise? Naki karo bap er shathe beadobi korse? Munir just does not have so much history (unlike chacha) that he merits his own "haters" club.

When Whatmore writes off someone as "more of a squad player", then he's proably worse than Taposh and Talha

Rubu
May 20, 2005, 08:08 AM
i did not like munir getting selected. now, i don't care anymore and wish he does good because he is already in the team. but my reason for not liking him getting selected that i felt like he did not do enough to get a recall from national team. nazmul was my choice because he is a swing bowler who would be really useful in english condition and has experience bowling there. well, it did not happen so no point talking about it now. beside hoping that they all do good.

btw, what surprises me is aftab. he seems a better bowler in english condition over everyone else beside mashrafee (2nd best). and that makes me wonder (i dont like chahca either) but would he be useful here as well?

When Whatmore writes off someone as "more of a squad player", then he's proably worse than Taposh and Talha

Whatmore tried his best to say something good about every player in his BBC article, but he didn't have anything positive things to say for Munir and couldn't resist from calling him "more of a squad player", which means he is here to fill 16 member quota. Whamore misinformed the readers that he played well in Duleep trophy. In fact, his figures were very unimpressive at Duleep trophy. And "if he gets an opportunity I'm sure he will take it with both hands because he has been itching to play" doesn't say anything special about a player.

Almost all of our players played more or less well in WI tour, except the two newcomers Faisal Hossain and Munir. Now Faisal Hossain is gone for good, and I have no idea why Munir got selected instead of Nazmul in this tour.

class act! could be, i don't know. my personal feeling is munir and talha both are good. but not ready. both needed time to be ready. what they can be in time is out of question at this point but as their performance shows we cannot expect anything from them in this tour.

but bowler like aftab really make me wonder. instead of mediocre bowler who gives 1 or 2 good balls in a over and rest are crap (like talha) are much less useful than bowler like aftab with controlled bowling. and thats why i was advocating for nazmul.

also, don't get me wrong. i did a lot of chacha bashing as well. but when i think logically keeping the heart aside, i get the feeling that we'd be better off keeping chacha and nazmul in the team instead of talha and munir.

If he gets a couple more, there will be a poll about playing Munir instead of Mashrafe, and about 40 members will support that proposal. Why? Because Monir, Tapash and Rajib would have all taken more wickets than Mashrafe on this tour if Munir gets one more!

I thought Rajin is a "class act" after seeing him play in Pakistan tour, but slowly he is proving that he's another Javed, who is useless in tough situations. Hopefully we're going to have enough replacements of him in near future.....

Man, you are crazy! Take Rajin out of that list right now. He has been the most consistent player in the national team after Sumon. He still averages higher than Javed Omar, Ashraful and Aftab, and would have averaged higher than Nafees as well if it weren't for Nafees' hundred in the last innings against Zimbs. Just take a look at his run of scores in Statguru, the guy scores runs regularly!

rajin is not the best batsman in the team and has his limitations but he will easily go past many players who are more talented than he is. and thats because of his grit. he'll give his 100% and even more to keep his position in the team and thats why it is not easy to write him off.

Rajin isn't considered "Rana", 10-20's mixed with occasional 40s is not what the team may expect from him. Before Zimbabwe series his top score was only 60, after playing a lot of tests.

His miserable record in the ICC Champions Trophy in England, India tests (and performance so far in this tour) indicates that he's vulnerable against swing and most likely to fail in the Test series against England.

Anyway, Rajin may be better than Sanwar, Rokon, Rana, but he's definately not Bashar #2.

26, 60, 3, 6, 49, 42, 11, 8, 32, 9, 49, 47, 6, 26, 51, 47, 0, 41, 0, 2, 35, 0, 0, 89, 26, 24, 56* !

Now, I think most people would agree that he has been rather consistent. The Zimbabwe series didn't boost his average all that much, it just took it back to where it was before the India series!
Rajin isn't considered "Rana", 10-20's mixed with occasional 40s is not what the team may expect from him. Before Zimbabwe series his top score was only 60, after playing a lot of tests.

His miserable record in the ICC Champions Trophy in England, India tests (and performance so far in this tour) indicates that he's vulnerable against swing and most likely to fail in the Test series against England.

Anyway, Rajin may be better than Sanwar, Rokon, Rana, but he's definately not Bashar #2.

How Rajin didn't shine in this tour compared to other players? Against BU, he was not out in the 2nd innings. But, BU was a joke. In the 1st innings of the 2nd match, he stayed in the crease for more than 2 hrs. I don't know why are people after him now.

I was just looking at the Northamptonshire Team that played against Essex in County Championship match on 11-14 May. ML Love, BM Shafayat, RA White, DJG Sales, U Afzaal, MH Wessels, DG Wright, J Louw, BJ Phillips, PS Jones, JF Brown. Out of this first XI form their latest county match, just 4 of them playing today.

Now that's a rational thought :up:

yah..i don't think we should take Anwar in the first test....if one of our front line bowlers (Tapash, Mashrafee, Shahadat) don't perform as expected, then try him out

Cricinfo's "3rd string" label wasn't very inappropiate. Anyway, this team is far weaker than the Sussex team we played in the last match

Maybe beacuase he's blocking the way of Mushfiq Rahim in the first test.

He stayed in the crease for two hours..alright, but what he had beside his name when he got out? He's not a tail ender, he must score runs along with staying in the middle.

I want Mushfiq Rahim to play well again in this match and force the team management to play him instead of Rajin in the Lords test.

I am not really a Rajin fan in the proper sense of the word, but I see his value to our middle order. Plus, his technique, and I have seen him a hell of a lot, is not bad either. He is not a natural like Ashraful or Aftab, but he plays to his strengths, which is always good.

So, today's team should be at least called the second string.

You gotta be kidding my friend. Rajin is not bloking anybody. He is a team player, and does what the team requires him to, and that's why he is there. Run scoring was not the priority in the match you are talking about. If you're talking about slow scoring, I just want to remind you the last few ODI's he played against India, and Zim.

I do want Mushfiq to play too, but Rajin is not the weakest link.

I have a feeling that Munir is better fit for practice matches. He did nothing substantial when got a chance in final eleven in previous tour but then did superbly in practice matches well ahead of the Test match.

I know that survival was priority in that match....but 2 hours survival doesn't mean much for the situation, and the scorecard proves that he wasn't successful in scoring runs either.

In the 3rd ODIs against India, they had a huge total on board and already won the match when Rajin decided to score some runs. India didn't focus much into stopping run flow. And crippled Zimbabwe is crippled Zimbabwe......

I do want Mushfiq to play too, but Rajin is not the weakest link.
But then who makes the way for him?? Rajin is not Mushfiq Babu or Rana, but he's the only option to leave behind if we want to see Mushfiq Rahim in the first test.

I don't understand how you can wish that one of our players do badly? Thats is just screwed up in my opinion.

You might not like someone by their current standard, but isn't it more productive to wish that they improve rather than hope that they turn out to be crap? What kind of warped logic is that?

I've learned a lot from putting my hopes on Rokon & co. They proved that losers remain losers and they can't change. Rather than being dissapointed in the end, it's more fun to laugh at them. No actual harm is done in either way, since they're not hearing me regardless I like them or not.

If they improve by some miracle, then it's great. But miracles don't happen. That's why Rana will always bat like Rana, practice match bowlers will remain practice bowlers.....
