It's a calculated risk, na? Rafique could slog through to get RR up, or he could be out pretty quickly.

This si a very crucial stage for our batting.
If we can catch it will be within the next 5 overs, and theres no one better than Rafique to gamble with.

31.3 Chandana to Rafique, FOUR!!, full toss outside off, Rafique reads it early and drives it to extra cover, lovely shot! :great:

Sam

Bangladesh need 162 runs means RRR is 9:down:

fab, I agree completely. Besides, SL will probably be bringing in Murali at the fag end to constrain our RR. Better for us to try to boost the RR here.

that match was lost by the bowling. cmon anything over 250 is too much for us. specially against the SL bowling. they dont have any tapash or nazmul to bowl short volleys that can be easily picked for fours. anything around 250 against this bowling is a good result for us.

on the bright side, the ball will be wet and slippery and hard to grip for the spinner causing more extras.

Why does Pilot bat so low? In tests it's understandable but in ODIs he should bat ahead of many batsmen with his temperment and improvisation skills.

The plan is to bat out the 50 overs. I was talking to my friends here in Colombo. All of them say that Bangladesh should now focus on winning not batting out 50 overs which is nothing a capable team like yours has to prove. It is far better to go down blazing, very bravely, in less than 50 overs, smashing sixes and fours, rather than just bat like in a test match.

September 2, 2005, 06:45 AM
i agree with abherath. bangladesh has serious issues with self-confidence. guys, you have ODI status, you have test status, no one wants to see that you can bat out 50 overs. i can see why whatmore wants to see the batsmen get some batting practice, but seriously, when they do this in a regular ODI (the series-decider, at that) it is insulting for the opposition team, spectators, and all their fans. watching the game today, i did not feel even once that they were trying to win the game -- it was a game that had been decided at the end of the SL innings. blame taposh and nazmul all you want for bowling badly, but the batsmen, by not showing *any* spirit or confidence (except when it didn't matter) let the team down just as badly. i do not like this direction that BD cricket is taking.

However, BD played a better game than the 1st ODI.
And H. Bashar played a real captains knock in batting. But sending Rafiq in his place proved to a wrong strategy. Bashar could have scored more, where as Rafiq could slog in the last overs.
In fact, we lost at the very beginning, when Taposh and Nazmul gave away plenty of runs and Rana dropped the catch.

Better match?

- Bowling was worse
- Fielding was as bad as the 1st ODI
- In batting, we made no realistic attempt to chase the total

Overall, this was a worse performance and a torture to watch.

England survived 30 long years doing just that..

We got a score over 200 now.

We've got some batting practice.

We are not there to entertain them by going on a suicidal spiral.

We did absolutely the right thing.

We had 1 fifty, another one would have been good.

We hit just abot equal number of 4s and 6s as Sri Lanka. So, we've further isolated problem with taking the singles.

We've negotiated one of the best bowling attack in the world today. Better yet we've negotiated the best spinners there are.

We've denied Murali once again. Good show.

Tushar impressed me with his thoughtful negotiation of some vicious spin. He should get more chances against good spinning opponents.

Overall, I'm happier than what would have been another very large defeat.

A reasonably good show.

That is not Ash's normal style. That's his lunatic style.

And in this match he played in scared schoolboy style.

Both was disgusting in different ways.

What England did or did not do is an irrelevance. In any case they reached 3 world cup finals between 1975 and 1992. 30 years?

Apart from familiarizing themselves a little bit with the SL bowling BD demonstrated nothing. Sometimes I wonder if playing for their country means anything to this pathetic lot.

September 2, 2005, 07:14 AM
i think the batting order should be:

Shariar Nafees (batting)
Mohammed Ashraful (batting, bowl if someone bowls bad)
Habibul Bashar (batting)
Mohammed Rafique (batting, bowling)
Javed Omar (batting)
Aftab Ahmed (batting, bowling)
Tushar Imran (batting)
Khaled Mashud (wicketkeeper)
Mashrafee Mortaza (bowler)
Syed Rasel (bowler)
Nazmul Hossain (bowler)

Mashrafee Mortaza = 10 overs
Syed Rasel = 10 overs
Nazmul Hossain = 10 overs
Mohammed Rafique = 10 overs
Aftab Ahmed = 10 overs
Mohammed Ashraful = (optional)

i think it is vital to have at least three good fast bowlers two
experienced fast bowlers and one spinner. + a few part time bowlers. the thing is mashrafee is the only one with any real pace up in the 80s consistently but nazmul and syed are in the 70s. Bangladesh need a fast and furious pacer who can bowl in the 90s and consistent in the upper 80s. like Brett Lee, Stephen Harmison and Shoaib Ahktar.

i agree with abherath. bangladesh has serious issues with self-confidence. guys, you have ODI status, you have test status, no one wants to see that you can bat out 50 overs. i can see why whatmore wants to see the batsmen get some batting practice, but seriously, when they do this in a regular ODI (the series-decider, at that) it is insulting for the opposition team, spectators, and all their fans. watching the game today, i did not feel even once that they were trying to win the game -- it was a game that had been decided at the end of the SL innings. blame taposh and nazmul all you want for bowling badly, but the batsmen, by not showing *any* spirit or confidence (except when it didn't matter) let the team down just as badly. i do not like this direction that BD cricket is taking.

I see a lot of posts like this from my Bangladeshi friends, who are willing to look inwards. This is really great.

This thing about batting out 50 overs is holy crap. Bangladesh has gone past the stage when you wanted that or some individual performances like centuries or to be in a position to say that you fought hard but lost. Bangladesh is a STRONG side - I mean it. You have test status, which other countries are struggling to achieve. Your past cricketers and officials put their blood and sweat into it so that you'd be among the test playing countries today. We Asians should not be duped by expensive foreign coaches who make statements like that; if they - the coaches - don't perform, they should be given marching orders. That is what Sri Lanka does.

Bangladesh is full of talent. Shahriar Nafees, Aftab Ahmed, Bashar, Ashraful (when he is not mad), Thushar, Omar, Mortaza, Mashud - they are all international class. We'd love to have players like that. What you need is professional guidance to put it all together consistently so that you'd win adequately often.

Bravo Bangladesh. You are not humbled or belittled. We in Sri Lanka know what you are capable of. :fanflag:

Thanks, abherath. SL is a great team. I liked the SL captain's comment about the BD team. It's tough for BD to beat SL. SL has a good batting lineup. And BD bowling is very very poor. BD beat India only once. And strong SLs will beat India 4 out of 5 times. I remember when SL won the world cup final; we all supported our subcontinent brothers not Australia.

guys, now lets go and see the nz and india match. NZ scored a big total 278. and india is chasing, lets see. almost same scenario as SL vs BD. We might learn a few tricks from this game. Whatmore, Habibul watch this game!

Thank you very much.

Look at the Sri Lankans and the Bangladeshis on the field. You can tell them apart only from their outfits; otherwise they look very much alike. We are of the same origin.

If Dav W thinks its better to practice batting, in ODI then he should have asked BD organizers to shedule more practice games. Secondly, if a sides fielding is so bad in two back to back ODIs then there is a serious problem in preparation. SriLankan weather is not like something that our boys don't see often. So we can not blame on that. It was imperative to properly shedule the training camp so that they have few sessions of fielding practice. These are the two things that we must learn that should not happen in the future tour preparation. If it happens that means we didn't learn anything, and know who to blame rather than pointing all the fingers to these kids.

There wasn't any competition in the First two ODIs.

Not providing the resource and time to the players and expecting wins, or even competing should not be in the cards.

These players are good. They need better support and they'll deliver. They are not humbled. We Sri Lankans respect them.

We had 1 fifty, another one would have been good.

We hit just abot equal number of 4s and 6s as Sri Lanka. So, we've further isolated problem with taking the singles.

We've negotiated one of the best bowling attack in the world today. Better yet we've negotiated the best spinners there are.

We've denied Murali once again. Good show.

Tushar impressed me with his thoughtful negotiation of some vicious spin. He should get more chances against good spinning opponents.

Overall, I'm happier than what would have been another very large defeat.

A reasonably good show.

Good points (mostly).. But I am a liitle bit confused when people still use the term <b>"good practice for BD"</b>. What they are practicing for? For their upcomming local league matches? Becuase if they use these ODIs as their TEST match warmup matches, then trust me, it will do more harm to them than help them.

In that case we will see in the TEST matches that they are still in pratice mode, precticing for the next future ODI matches and start scoring 150 runs all out with a RR of 5.5..

Sorry

you can call it good show.
but if bd play like that next few matches, here is the consequences:
1. dav facing sack
2. a few players will be KO
3. bashar's captaincy will be taken away
4. no deal from telecast company
5. yet again call for exclusion from test status
6. along with england and australia, a few more countries will not want to play bd at home in the future.
7. bd fans throwing eggs and tomatoes

Playing out 50 overs ?? not a good idea, Bangladesh should have gone for a win. If they had gone for a win and fell short by 40-50 runs, hey we can definitely digest !

I do agree we had to save some face till 40 overs, after that ? 40 runs of the last 10 overs .. is just un explainable. Only aggressive cricket won the game against Aussies, Indians.

Go tigers go for the kill ! you have been crouching for too long now !

i totally agree with him, if Dev watmore isnt doing the job, we simply need a new coach. I think Dev has done wonders for our cricket and i thank him for that but he can only take us that much, now we need someone who can take us to the next level.

now i know its not the players becoz i belive we have enough international class players to win us or complete in most matches. its just as abherath said, we need someone to gell those talents together.

India won the game courtesy of Kaif's century.

Kaif did for India what Ash/Habb could have done for Bangladesh!

It was not our day. We will win when it is our day. If our batsmen, bowlers and fielders play well in same match, that day we will win the match. And you already see it previous. And I think Mashrafee is now very important part of our team. Our team will round back again if Mashrafee back in the team. Hope he will be fit soon. :cool2:
