I was browsing through the old Bangladesh cricket matches in cricinfo.com archive. While looking at the Bangladesh World Cup matches, I came across the match against Sri Lanka in Last World cup. We lost 4 god damn wickets in the very first over of the match; 3 of them were in the first 3 balls. I think this is the most embarrassing moment in Bangladesh Cricket. Can you guys think of any other moment worse than this?

Let’s look at the Ball-By-Ball record of that “scary” first over by Chaminda Vass.

0.1 Vaas to Hannan Sarkar, OUT: Drama on the first ball! a first ball wicket, went for an expansive drive so early on and went through the gate onto off stump

0.2 Vaas to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: More drama folks!came forward and its a inswinger, played early and popped back to Vaas for an easy catch, two down for nil" A hattrick in a world cup? will it happen?

0.3 Vaas to Ehsanul Haque, OUT: an edge to second slip and WE HAVE A HATTRICK!" Hmm this is a rather unusual start, perhaps a record? Sanwar Hussain in

0.4 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, FOUR, an over pitched ball and bravely lofted to extra cover

0.5 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, wide: no run, way outside off

0.5 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, OUT: an inswinger, goes back and it hits his front pad, likely going on to hit leg stump, anyway ump Tiffen thought so, we have a 4 wicket first over for Vaas, one he will never forget"

0.6 Vaas to Alok Kapali, no run, another inswinger, comes forward and solidly defends it back

End of over 1 (5 runs) Bangladesh 5/4 (RR: 5.00)
WPUJC Vaas 1-0-5-4 (1w) - Duzi End
Al Sahariar 0* (0b) Alok Kapali 0* (1b)

Our 60 run defeat to Canada in the previous match was more embarrassing.

Vaas is at least a well recognized internaional class bowler, but in that Canada match we gave a plumber 5 wickets, who was on vacation to play World Cup.

Jeremy Lawson was accused of chucking. so, we might find an excuse there. excuse to our own self. but there is no excuse for 4/5. so, between this two, 4/5 stays ahead. but there are more embarassing moments. check out that old poll "most embarassing moment of bangladesh cricket" if you are interested.

too lazy to dig up the link ;)

If you look at most of the discussions in the forum, no moment is embarrassing enough, not for more than a few days in any case. Already people have forgotten than BD lost two tests to England in highly embarrassing fashion.

So, whats your point? We are supposed to burry our head in the sand and be ashamed forever? Its only a game. We mourn our losses but recover quickly to dream about beating the next opposition. There is nothing wrong with it. I tell you what is embarrassing if you have the ears for it : Digging up pitches so your hated country can't participate in a sporting event. Or, lighting the whole gallery up with fire during the semi-final of a world cup match simply because your country is staring at a sure defeat. Or, how about this : Sunny Gavaskar - owning only one one day century in his resume. That simple fact is the height of all embarrassment.

I would rate the Canada loss as the most embarrassing. Losing 4-5 wickets in a bunch is by now old hat and doesn't register anymore, although the torment inflicted by Vass and Lawson does stand out. Still, as overall, down and out embarrassment, the Canada loss was much worse than losing to England in effectively 2.25 days in both tests this year.

How about scoring 38(!) N.O. in 60 overs chasing 300 something and that in the world cup after playing more than 50 years of test cricket!

Beamer
June 9, 2005, 11:46 PM
Optimist, you are most generous. I believe it was 36 not out. Not 38. Thats ought to be the worst batting stat ever. And the fact that he opened leaves one dumbfounded.

i agree too..loosing to canada was the worst case scenario for us....and we achieved that too...

that game can be singled out as the most embarrasing, aweful, nightmarish filthy black moment in the history of our cricket....

To be frank... I can't really seperate one moment of deep embarrassment from the other. There have been so many of them already!

It has become almost like "Olpo shok e kator.. but Odhik Shok e akkebare Pathor!" :)

1. Loss to Canada
2. Chaminda's hat-trick
3. Mahmud's bowling strike rate of 500+
4. Dippenaar and Rudolph's marathon partnership
5. Lawson's spell

feisal
June 10, 2005, 04:34 AM
i would add another; the partnership of tendular and zaheer kan in the dhaka test match.. was that the highest score by a number eleven batsman???

*** who will remember that tendulkar was dropped at nought and two more times even before he got 50???

Fortuner
June 10, 2005, 05:21 AM
Guys....i would rather call loosing to Canada was an insult for all the Bangladeshis.

I really hated calling my self a Bangladeshi coz we cant expect that from our team coz every way we are better than Can. We cant expect any excuse bcoz of that.

After that defeat, other country ppl especially the Indian's were mocking at us.

One more thing was that after that defeat, the whole moral of the team was at its lowest and coz of that we even lost to Kenya where i blv we could have won if we had not lost to Canada.

We simply lost this two matches...:(:(:(

Easily our worst and most embarassing performance.

most of the test playing nations had a few embarrassing losses in their cricket history but the worrying thing about bd is that it is too many too often. most of our test losses are innings defeat and should be considered as embarrassing. the things which worries me is the lack of improvement. in my point of view this is due to unprofessionalism. it seems like many bd players do not understand the pride and value playing for their country and can not put up a price tag for their wickets. another thing is their lack of desire to improve on cricketing skills. the boys have been around for while but still lack some basic cricketing skills. they are well paid to learn these skills and show character when playing for the country.

I was browsing through the old Bangladesh cricket matches in cricinfo.com archive. While looking at the Bangladesh World Cup matches, I came across the match against Sri Lanka in Last World cup. We lost 4 god damn wickets in the very first over of the match; 3 of them were in the first 3 balls. I think this is the most embarrassing moment in Bangladesh Cricket. Can you guys think of any other moment worse than this?

Let’s look at the Ball-By-Ball record of that “scary” first over by Chaminda Vass.

0.1 Vaas to Hannan Sarkar, OUT: Drama on the first ball! a first ball wicket, went for an expansive drive so early on and went through the gate onto off stump

0.2 Vaas to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT: More drama folks!came forward and its a inswinger, played early and popped back to Vaas for an easy catch, two down for nil" A hattrick in a world cup? will it happen?

0.3 Vaas to Ehsanul Haque, OUT: an edge to second slip and WE HAVE A HATTRICK!" Hmm this is a rather unusual start, perhaps a record? Sanwar Hussain in

0.4 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, FOUR, an over pitched ball and bravely lofted to extra cover

0.5 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, wide: no run, way outside off

0.5 Vaas to Sanwar Hossain, OUT: an inswinger, goes back and it hits his front pad, likely going on to hit leg stump, anyway ump Tiffen thought so, we have a 4 wicket first over for Vaas, one he will never forget"

0.6 Vaas to Alok Kapali, no run, another inswinger, comes forward and solidly defends it back

End of over 1 (5 runs) Bangladesh 5/4 (RR: 5.00)
WPUJC Vaas 1-0-5-4 (1w) - Duzi End
Al Sahariar 0* (0b) Alok Kapali 0* (1b)

I have a video of that Vaas hatrick, if you want reminding, it in Real Player format.

I think Canada one was too embarrassing... it happened on the eid day and some ppl took the day off and they were watching it together..... Appointing Mohsin Kamal as the coach should be as embarrassing as anything.......

Yesterday's defeat by Derbyshire is also an embarrassment, I consider.
