View Full Version : what do you think about the test 11?

I woud say it is a brave line-up...totally pro-youth! I am guessing this is the youngest ever test line up for bangladesh... lets see how it pays off...

one of the more diverse and well-rounded bowling dept. that I have seen for BD....all we needed was masri :)

July 28, 2002, 05:06 AM
Sharif and Moni. :)

We have overloaded the team with bowlers and not enought batters. Teams will always score runs against us, especially without bowlers like Masri, Tarek Aziz and Mohammed Sharrif. Our problem since our first test is making runs. Whats the point in having so many bowlers if we cant have a total to defend.

Actually the team is well balanced. Ashraful shoudn't be mistaken for a bowler. Alok Kopali is considered an All-rounder (like Moni). So it's all good but I guess another 'professional' batter wouldn't hurt. :P

All pressure on Top orders!

How come Ash wasnt used as a bowler? He is a regular bowler. At least he should have bowled before Sumon.

He is being rested for his impending first innings century.

When you said impending, did you consider the impediment(sp) he has ?

[seriously though, the boy has so much promise - what happened ? we all know he is good, even he knows. Did he just lose his head after all the accolades or just acting his age ? Barely 16/17 and has his whole career in front of him, a few 50's here and there at this moment will go a long way towards 100s in future - specially when Kenya and Nepal get their test status. :)]

I am really impressed with fahim muntasir and alok kapali...and also with our fast bowlers...I don't think we had a better allround performance in the bowling dept.... I am not too surprised though...our coach was a bowler too :)
only our batsmen need to take cue :)

I could wait till the game tonight to do this but thought why wait ----

Dude, Fingers crossed ? What were you thinking ? FC doesn't mean much after you just jinxed the team.

Kapali was bowled the most overs. Which wasn't too bad. The wicket he took cut in sharply proving that the boy can turn the ball.

Ash needs to work on his bowling during training. As long as he bats well, we won't cry much about not bowling him at all.

What are we thinking? Read a lankan newspaper. They are happy with their performance.

Tehsin bhai :) you are trying to pass on the mantle of party pooper to me...eh? we all know when the 'fat' tehsin sings... lol...sorry about the fat part...needed that for the effect :D

July 29, 2002, 12:42 AM
FAT ? Fat is 50+ partnership by two bowlers against a Test (?) team after their star players have all fallen. That's FAT.

As for party pooper, Oppppppps you poooped again.
