Time: 4:00 AM UTC | 12:00 AM EDT | 10:00 AM Bangladesh Time every day.

The 3-day practice match against the SL development squad begins September 7. With skipper Habibul Bashar and injured Mashrafee Bin Mortuza and Mohammad Rafique unavailable, they have only 12 players for the game and BD only has 12 players to chose the final 11. BD management is trying to see of SL will be amenable for 12 a side match to allow all BD players to get some much needed practice.

btw...someone was talkin about axing javed ??
81/195..bl**dy hell,, he scored half of the runs...
whoz the second high scorer ?? Mr Extra ???

don know if its a battin pitch or bowlin..but still...if we get out for only 195 against a development squad...guys..be prepared for an onslaught of vass n murali....ha ha...

i don know whether to laugh or cry...this is very amusing...

Sydney....very amusing mate. Don't know whether to laugh with you or cry!

To be fair to Javed Omar, he's probably been our most consistent performer over the last few series and justified his place in both the Test AND ODI team. As for the rest....well, the scores speak for themselves!

to b honest, i started to feel that BD should give their test status back to ICC. it is embarrassing
for us as loosing match after matches without any improvements as well as it is embarrassing
for ICC.

harte harte amader amon obostha je akhon harar bojha niye r dariye thaka jacchena.

or BCB sould reduce their # of test and ODI match/year.
our players are too much busy with tours, they have too little time to practice and develop their mistakes.

115 ta ODI khele amader win hoche only 10!! and in test, we all know...ata amar personal feeling guys, don't get mad reading my post :)

Tigers continue to stun the cricketing world! Fudge.

Watmore better turn things round or else. In my opinion, if we don't do well in this series, he should be the one to come under fire. U can't friggin have almost ALL your main batsmen getting out for single digits. Consistently underperforming. There's clearly a problem.

Why the management has sent R Saleh back? Is he not better suited for the longer version of the game? Why even bring him in the first place with the ODI team if he is not to play?

Good knock JO. Just wondering if he were to be out cheaply would the match finish in 1 day? or even day and a half? no wonder Bd is asking for 12 players to play the game.

Tush, man come on. Where is your blazing form that you showed in England? This is also a 3rd string. beat the crap out these bowlers.

Ash, we all know you can play the longer version. Where are your knocks of 10 (91) or 33 (105)? Stay between the wickets for a while. Don't have to score.

hello_cricket
September 7, 2005, 10:23 AM
Among other things, the BD team needs to continue to work on the following:

increase mental strength and confidence
play responsible cricket; and
learn from our mistakes.

Good luck Bangladesh!!

September 7, 2005, 10:35 AM
like i said SL is not for stroke make like ash/aftab/tusher/bashar........

We need more grafter.... we should have some backup plyr who can hold the inning like javed/rajin...

Now that rajin is out who r we replacing him with? anothore stroke maker....

Can anyone name another good grafter other then the 2 mentioned above???

This is fault of our management not the plyrs u have to chose plyrs with the condition so that you can get most benifit.

I am not saying that grafters r the answer but we would have better chances with them in SL then these stroke plyrs

September 7, 2005, 10:45 AM
How did Tusher get bowled without facing a single ball? (See below)


Bangladeshis 1st innings R M B 4 6
Javed Omar lbw b Rupasinghe 81 169 109 11 1
Nafees Iqbal Khan c de Silva b Lakshitha 0 13 9 0 0

Ash can also play without making aggresive strokes. 10 run facing 91 balls or 33 runs playing 105 balls against Zim proves that. it is the ODI mindset and the glory that brought from the Aussie win and English knock.

[i]Can anyone name another good grafter other then the 2 mentioned above???

Nafiz Iqbal (25.92). he has a test century and two fifties. but his current form is not so good but excellent spin player. Rana (25.7) is the other one. has a test fifty played only 11 innings. Both of them have better average than anyone on the current batsman (except bashar).

Tehsin
September 7, 2005, 07:22 PM
Very dissapointed. Look at the fall of wicket:
1-9, 2-9, 3-23, 4-68, 5-68, 6-90, 7-117, 8-151, 9-169, 10-195.

We lasted only 45 overs against a C, not even that, may be the D line up. Something tells me that the bowling wasn't the only culprit.

If I am going to take anything from the first innings, it's this - lower your expectations SIGNIFICANTLY.

Bengal Tiger
September 7, 2005, 07:51 PM
Amazing!!! I really don't know what to say. Hope we perform a miracle like the England series. We played test at first and we sucked, then oneday...we rocked. Where is Shahadat Hossain? Is he not playing? Tapash again proved himself with the bat but he really needsto prove himself with his bowling. He needs a special bowling coach, maybe Andy Roberts. Where is he anyway?

Enamul Jnr. must look to really pick up as many wickets as possible in the practice match. A confident and firing enamul is vital to our prospects of preventing a totally one-sided show.

September 8, 2005, 02:40 AM
I really hope that Enamul gets some wickets during this match. DS reported that he created a couple of chances during his five overs.

It's a practice match, so it's not impossible. BD wants to practice all of the 12 available players and maybe the opposition agreed with it.

They only used 45 overs in the first innings. How can they bat 90 overs with 9 wickets? Draw is out of the question. Only one possible outcome. I like the bowling though, 48 extra.

At least we've have sorted out few Test XI selection problems with this practice match:

Javed and Shahriar Nafees should open
Nafees Iqbal shouldn't play
Including Rajib in the Test XI is out of question
2 pacer + 2 spinner is the way to go

CricTiger
September 8, 2005, 01:04 PM
I saw a picture of Bashar fielding the match .Will he be able to bat ? Let's wait and see .

Also BD bowlers produced 25 nb out of 48 extras.What the hell they were bowling to.Nothing is working for us right now what a mess ...

If they can bat out the 90 overs i'll be more than happy, it'll give me a renewed confidence in them.

Also i like the way pilot is thinking Rana is a type of batsmen who with Javed can eat up overs.

I hope practice match best Tushar can come through for us.

"..........Ashraful showed great reserves of concentration, batting for two minutes under three hours for a well-compiled 87 off 150 balls. He hit a six and 11 fours.

With the 19-year-old Ahmed, who made a well-struck 67, Ashraful added 123 for the fifth wicket in 108 minutes. Ahmed, who reached his half-century in grand style with a pulled six over midwicket, also hit seven fours in his 123-ball knock. Thilan Samaraweera, the SLC Development XI captain, tried as many as eight bowlers to try and dislodge the pair, and although Ahmed was dismissed soon after tea, Tushar Imran and Khaled Mashud, the former captain and wicket-keeper, batted out time, occupying the crease for 52 minutes to frustrate the local team's effort of pulling off a victory."

Some selection headache for selectors. Yes Ash and Aftab did well but who open with Javed ? and who is in the bowling line up?

I think:

1. Javed
2. Nafees/Shahriar
3. Bashar
4. Ashraful
5. Aftab
6. Tushar

There's no point of picking Nafees Iqbal. He was a total failure in both of the England tours and this practice match. I would be very surprised if Dev picks him ahead of Shahriar Nafees or Tushar Imran.

I read in Prothom alo or somewhere else that DAV said Nafees is going to be ok.
So he is taking Nafees...
Too bad too bad...

in test matches,i prefer to have five bowlers.i think if 6 batsmen cant score runs,playing seven wont make any difference.my ideal bowling combination is 3 pacers and 2 spinners.playing aftab as the 5th bowler will never help the situation.he is not good enough to be the 5th bowler,and bowling long overs will also hamper his batting.so it is a lose-lose situation for him and for the team.
