View Full Version : Good fight by Kenya - what we should learn.

They looked more comfortable against the Indian bowling then they did against Bangladesh, doesn't say much of the current Indian attack. Nehra was the exception.

Indian bowling and fielding looked worse then Bangladesh and we are playing BAD cricket even by our standards. Fortunately, Indian batting should get there with couple of hundreds or atleast a hundred from Tendulkar. 226, in a wicket like that is nothing.

What Bangladesh can learn from the Kenyan -
- Descipline while batting.
- Running between the wicket is TOP NOTCH
- Fielding

Keep in mind, the Kenyans have some of the best atheletes in the world, it's no surprise that their cricketers enjoy some of that physical advantage.

Kenyan's also have a strong will and a sense of PRIDE, something lacking from our team. We have talented players but talent enough will not carry you all the way. You've got to set your goals, take your chances, use every opportunity you get because we are the new kids and the cricket world will not be that patient with back to back failures. We need to show the effort to convince everyone that we want to belong in the top flight.

Kenya is doing it quite mervelously with their limited resources. More power to them.

Kenya 225/6, 50 against India
Kenya 217/7, 50 against Bangladesh

Bangladesh 120 all out against Canada - of all teams.
Bangladesh - have not crossed 200 in a while.

Time to wake up for the Bangladesh Batsmen.

Hehe...let's see

Kenyans are better batters, better fielders, more disciplined, topnotch runners, physically fit and athletic, strong-willed and proud.....

and we are lacking all of those above when compared to Kenya. That's pretty much all you need to be succesful in ANY sport, don't you?

We have talented players but talent enough will not carry you all the way.

For the last time, tehsin bhai, we DON'T have "talented" players. Shining in one match doesn't make someone talented.

And you know what? We don't NEED talented players. We need PROFESSIONAL players. Players with qualities you mentioned about Kenyans.

Forget talent. There's no Nobel Prize for talent in cricket. Isn't it Edison who said "Talent is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration"? We need to see our boys sweat. And we definitely need to stop this nonsense chapabaji about our players so-called "talent."

Kenya 225/6 (50 ov)
India 226/4 (47.5 ov)

The experience of Ganguly and Yuvraj finally sees India through but kenya stayed in the match long enough to make it interesting.

Kenyans deserve test status really. Their players I think can atleast draw a test match, if not win it whereas we can't take any test match beyond 4 days.

Kenya "deserve" test status! They don't even have 30 players to make a preliminary world cup list!
