You get a total picture of the match through the two reports on TC and CI. TC is all Bangladesh while CI is ...I don't know maybe a liitle sorry to see Pakis losing (just my opinion).

Who do u think will be rested for tomorrow's game?

Though the ICC site describes the next round as superleague, it is in reality a knock out match, a quarterfinal. Bangladesh will most likely meet Zimbabwe in the quarterfinal.
A victory there will take them to semifinal where they are likely to meet India.

Since we have already secured a place in the super league, we need to play some dirty game to make sure we go further. here is how it is: if we become group champions, we meet Zim/Eng on quater final. Fine, now we are confident that we can beat either one of them. That takes us to semis. Here comes the problem, we face india there. That is one u19 team we have not beaten yet, and the latter we face them, the better. on the other hand, if we loose to uganda bad ( :duh: ) and make sure our RR is low, we will go to super league as runners ups from the group. then, we meet Zim/England, and next is not india. it can be srilanka or SA or someone else.

This is of course given that india wins against SL in group match and wins the quater final.

Bangladesh make history with Super League qualification

Brian Murgatroyd

February 8, 2006

Pakistan 170 (43.1 overs); Bangladesh 171-6 (34.5 overs). Bangladesh won by four wickets

Bangladesh reached the Super League for the first time in their history on Wednesday and they did it by beating defending champions Pakistan.

A four-wicket win for Mushfiqur Rahim's side took them to the top of Group A with four points and with Pakistan and New Zealand, who both have two points, playing each other in their last match on Friday, the Tigers cannot be displaced from one of the top two positions.

"There has been a bit of pressure on us with `phone calls going back and forth to Bangladesh over the past couple of days so hopefully this will relieve some of it," said coach Allister de Winter afterwards.

"It has been a good day and we played really well but now we need to get through tomorrow (their last group game against Uganda), refocus and look ahead.

"Our target was always the semi-final and that has not changed but if we can get there then we can achieve anything."

Bangladesh's win was founded on superb spin bowling by their quartet of slow left-armers.

They were led by Sakib Al Hasan, whose 4-34 derailed the Pakistan top-order and started the slide from 66-0 to 170 all out.

The other left-arm spinners - Nabil Samad Chowdhury (1-30), Md. Sohrawardi (2-26) and Mehrab Hossain (2-19) - also enjoyed success and between them the quartet tied the Pakistan batsmen in knots.

"Spin is our strength and a major part of our game plan and whether we are playing on a green pitch or a turning surface our bowlers are good enough to adapt," said de Winter.

"They might all be left-armers but they all operate in a different style and they all offer something different."

The quartet were superb on Wednesday as they hauled Bangladesh back into the game after Pakistan got away to a flying start.

Nasir Jamshaid (37) and Ali Khan (20) added 66 in brisk time for the first wicket and they took full toll of Bangladesh's opening bowlers Dollar Mahmud and Kazi Kamrul Islam but the introduction of spin saw the whole picture change.

Seven of Pakistan's batsmen fell to catches which illustrated a degree of carelessness on their part.

"It was disappointing," said Pakistan coach Mansoor Rana. "It was one of the things we discussed that we would look to score 70 or 80 runs before their spinners came on, score at three or four an over for the next 20 overs and score the big runs in the last 15 overs.

"This is an age where the players maybe do make mistakes and it was unfortunate it happened today."

It means Friday is a must-win game for Pakistan if they are going to retain the chance to defend the title they won two years ago, ironically in Bangladesh.

"We have no choice apart from winning it," said Rana. "Hopefully the boys will perform well under pressure."

Despite their batting woes, Pakistan still tested Bangladesh when the time came for the run-chase.

Jamshaid Ahmed (2-53), Anwer Ali Khan (1-30) and Akhtar Ayub (2-42) reduced Bangladesh to 88-4 and 119-5 but captain Mushfiqur Rahim (46) steadied the Tigers' nerves.

"He could bat at three or four because he is our best player but with the pressures of captaining the side and keeping wicket we have him at six and he offers his best value to us there, as he did today," said de Winter.

Apart from Pakistan's openers, the only batsman to pass 20 for the defending champions was Ali Asad who made 38 before he was bowled by Mehrab Hossain.

De Winter said it was likely there would be changes for the match against Uganda as, with the pressure of qualification now released, they could rest some players and give others in the squad some match action.

Rezaul Islam and Ishraq Sonnet, both yet to figure, are expected to be included on Thursday.

We are little worry about the semis, no doubt. But what are the Indians thinking? Are they not worried to face us? i know SL would not want to face us in the semis. And they will happy if they lose to the Indians in the final group match.

Also, now we are one of the tournament favorites. So it really doesn't matter who stands in our way. Sooner or later we have beat the best teams to be the champ. If we face India in the Semis so be it. But I am not sure their path is so rosy like ours. They will face WI or Aus before getting into the Semis. What if they lose that one. We are home free then :)

Ah well my prediction went wrong but facing Ind or Zim or Sl will be tougher

The only time we're home free is when we're flying home with the champions's trophy.

Look guys, this BD U-19 team is really good:flag:! We BD fans quickly get worried- because we don't win much. But this time it will be different (InshAllah). These young cubs look professional and they are playing well.
We have to face India, sooner or later. So I think we shouldn't be too scared if we meet them in the semis. True they (India) are a very good team, but we are good too:cool:. So we should hope for the best and believe that the players will also bring out their best at the time when it is most required.
The target is of course to win the trophy. But I urge the fans to support this team regardless of the results. The team have played well and they have great potential. Therefore, they deserve our total support!
:joy:

Are you somehow related to Late great SA captain Hansie Cronje? We shouldn't start corrupting these tender fragile minds...

India U19 is very strong but I believe BD U19 is even stronger! Batting wise they have Dhiman, Pujara, Sharma and Shukla and we have Tamim, Raqib, Saqib (all scored centuries in Tri-nation tourny). Tamim and Saqibs U19 SR is over 100 with very healthy average. Raqibs a steady performer and has a FC century against Zim-A. Then we have Shamsur, Mehrab and Mushfiq. Although Shamsur hasn't deliver yet but we know what coach Mcinnes reckons about him. Do I need to say much about M&M- Mehrab and Mushfiq, that is! Lets just say we'll see them together in Test matches within a few years. Shuvo and Khadims are no mugs with the bat, either. Both have U19 ODI 50s under their belts and against good oppositions, too!

Saqib, Nabil, Mehrab and Shuvo are class SLAs. Their records speak for themselves. Easily, the best spin attack in this tourney. India have P Chawla and Pujara - class acts, no doubt but quartet of BD are deadly together!

India's pacers are not all that better then ours. Dolar will deliver, inshaallah! May be Kamrul can be replaced by Ishraq.
Khadim is more than adequate.

India won against us convincingly in Afro- Aisia tourney because of home advantage and us not having a settled side. We were still experimenting with our squad. Now we have a much better and settled side with notable wins behind us.

Having said that, we have to take each game as it comes from now on as there are potential bannana skins at every steps! England or Zim will be no push overs!

Good analysis BanCricFan, our players should read "bannana skins at every steps!". No complacency against ANY at all.

Rubu bhai found two faults in your logic 1st one what if INDIA fearing BD loses to SRILANKA and we loose to uganda as you said then we might face them in semi anyway...

But secondly and more importantly if we meet them in semis doesn't matter how they might not play us, cause according to there board India loses money when they play BD so they might with draw....

And last but not least i won't except the cup without beating them...

I have said this in other thread/forum , if bd is champ mat then they should beat every one and every one, doesn't matter who, where, when...

I hope these boys have that...:fanflag:

To be champion, you gotta beat every team. oner or later. Now if BD loses in Semi or QF or in the finals dont make any differnence. No one will remember the runner up team.

Bring it ON!

Our batsmen are not as good strikers of the ball as the Indian batsmen. Rest of the matches are do or die matches, so we need some good hitter and bowling without extras.

Thanks and I dont think there will be any complacency esp. after yesterday's and today's top-order wobbles! Lets just hope for a Tamim-Saqib-Shamsur click from now on. We have dependable performers in M&M.

the U19 have performed magnificantly!!!! But do others agree the youngsters have plently of gas still in their tanks, i personally feel BD U19 have yet to CLICK as we know they can, none the less well done to the team and may they continue ROARING towards the final!!!

WE will next face either England (we whitewashed them!!) or Zimbabwe (need i say anything)!!!:great:
