View Full Version : Is the toss done the trick !!!!

Today's toss was very vital one for Bangladesh and Bangladesh is doing better on chasing rather batting first . So , they only should bat first when they are confiedent to get atleast a respectable total otherwise should play the way they chased against Australia . It's obviously one of the best match from Bangladesh team .

That was according to Ponting's comments you know . Looks like Asutralia gonna loose against England tommorrow too after watching their match today .

If it was not australia, but an asian team, english and australian media would by now have 10 articles about the possibility that this game being fixed. sure toss was vital and the two early wicket set the mode of the day. tigers needed that to encourage themselves.

not sure why ponting choose to bat first, he said he misjudged the pitch but i think he took bangladesh lightly and wanted some batting practice for his team. if bangladesh was out below 100 (as he was expecting) his team would not get enough batting practice.

Ponting also said we are playing with our best players tommorrow except Brett Lee but Bangladesh expect "No Mercy"

The way it has gone looks like we didn't have any mercy for Aussies just the vice-versa .

Symonds having flu while he was playing so , he is not playing tommorrow's match against England .

All I can say Ponting must have been out of his mind when he chose to bat.

With Saymonds already in trouble for breaking team rules, the moral of Aussies looks very low.
