i am waiting to see matured cricket from our boys.we all know that the chance to repeat the result against australia is slim.i am not expecting anything but a good fight.i hope we bat first,post a respectable total,and do some magic with the white ball under flood light.oh,one more thing....not concede the bonus point.

I am looking forward to this game. Most people thought that this fixture would be a dead game but it isn't.

I am looking for a ruthless performance from England but also a good performance from Bangladesh. Although I wouldn't mind if England won comfortably, another good hard contest would do England some good.

I am expecting an England win. I don't think after seeing Bangladesh beat Australia that England will go into this match in an arrogant mood, they will see Bangladesh as a proven banana skin and will be determined to address the difference in quality between the two sides, and give more signals out to Australia that they mean serious business this summer.

I hope England bat first. The ball does a lot under lights by nature, and I would back England to make 300 against this Bangladesh attack with the amount of big hitting capabilites they have. Flintoff, KP, Geraint Jones and Collingwood can all hit a seriously long cricket ball.

This match will be closer than the Oval match, but England will win I think.

Sauron
June 20, 2005, 06:26 PM
<b>If</b> Bangladesh gets to bat first, a win is very realistic expectation <b>if</b> the mind-set from last match carries through.

I just mentioned two <b>if</b>'s ... there might be more. But Mashrafe under the lights will be more daunting than any English Batsman can ever expect.

Looking forward to a sleepless night leading to an exciting day in front of the TV :fire:

June 20, 2005, 06:34 PM
Bashar really need to win the toss in this match. If we are forced to bat under flood light, there is no way for any competition at all. we need to bat first. and if the batsman only picked up the self belief from last match and not overconfidence, there could be a different bangladesh all along. that most likely will not be enough to beat england, but should be good enough for a better show than the test series and first odi.

kaisermatin
June 20, 2005, 06:37 PM
Bnagladesh win was no fluke! They won it hard. Chasing 250 is not easy. This is a capable team of repeatinmg the same feat. It's no dream. It's real. Just have to keep their heads high and play a confident game against all media propaganda.:fanflag:

Cricinfo Preveiw (http://content.cricinfo.com/natwestseries/content/story/211528.html)

A nice preveiw by Andrew Miller.. I especially like the opening paragraph.



After what feels like the longest phoney war in history, England's summer finally gets underway for real tomorrow, when two confident and competitive teams come head to head in a must-win clash in Nottingham. Trent Bridge is the venue for the first of three floodlit matches in the NatWest Series, and the stakes could not be higher for England and ... err ... Bangladesh ...?


Anyways... I think the toss will be the most important thing. Bashar needs to win it if Bangladesh wants even a glimmer of a chance of winning.

babubangla
June 20, 2005, 06:54 PM
All though our past record suggest a competitive performance after a win, I am not feeling good about tomorrow's match. No reason--I'm just fearing a very low score tomorrow from Bangladesh. Although after a win, Bangladesh performed good against India scoring 245 in reply to India's 300+ run. Hope my guess is absolutely wrong.

shahreer nafis has been included in the 13 men squad.may be nafis iqbal will be dropped.left-right combination can be a good tactic.but i am not sure if it will be a good idea to break the winning combination.

As usual our emotions engulfing us again...
its not realistic to aim for a win with English team in English ground. there is no way we can rip through the powerful
English batting line up. We can restrict them 280+ if we bowl tightly otherwise 340+ may be the score if England bat first. We will probably make 170 due to the night visiblity.

If we bat first I have no comments on that because our batsmen are very inconsistent but I am hoping 230. All I want a good fight and make the English play till 35 or 40 overs to win if they bat second.

Let them play positive cricket. Let them play sensibly. Let them play with their heart. We are a nation of optimist. We know that we are better than what the Brahmins (Brammons) of world cricket think. Let Ashraful, Mashrafee, Rafique, Aftab, Bashar and co believe in themselves. Win will come their way.

absoulutely . The win is on our way , just in the corner . They have to play from their heart . They did it to us and it's the time for us to do it with them .

By chasing we have a big chance if we have to chase 240+ ........ Good Luck .......

its better off than batting first and facing lousy beamers.

I prefer whatever Whatmore says to Shumon. That's it. We must win the toss then let whatmore decide!:fanflag:
Funny all right! If Whatmore comes in the pitch and start saying "We decided to do bat first because..." instead of Bashar.

Collingwood will probably come in either at 4 or 6, depending upon whether the England selectors have learnt their lesson or not.

If Shahariar Nafees can show some form in today's match than it will be great for BD. The left right opening combination can make it a little more difficult for England bowlers to consistantly bowl on good line and length.

Man with dew giles will find it hard to grip the ball he will get hammered. Ball will be heavy... it will be hard to hit big shots but the ball won't swing that much. I am still hopeful. Egiye cholo Bangladesh. I donno if we will win but man it would a good slap in the faces of the English media. Imagine the faces of Simon Hughes, Nassir Hussain, Mike Atherton, etc...

out of the two day night matches played so far in this ground (that i know of)...the team batting first scored in the 290s both times. this is a good batting pitch overall. and these are the first 15 overs. its usual to get walloped at this time.

In the first match England were 129/0 after 15 overs, now they are 128/0... (they ended up 192/0 24.5 overs) so nothing new, but I think that a wicket coming soon could help Bangladesh and break this lucky spell for England.

After 15 Overs = 128/0

Best Case Scenario:
Middle 30 Overs = 3 run per over = 90
Last 15 Overs = 6 run per over = 90

Total Run if we do our best = 308.
