118 is the 3rd lowest total score for Bangladesh against Sri Lanka.

76 Colombo (SSC) 2002
108 Colombo (RPS) 2005/06
124 Pietermaritzburg 2002/03
126 Sharjah 1994/95

Looking into those years, how far have BAN come?
How long a nation like us need to wait for a consistency??

willow tv is up and running. masree's wicket was lost to a peach of a delivery from perera. The wicket is a lively one. OUr pacers need to bowl with more control.

I think Ashrafool has to be dropped for a couple of games. He gets out for the most idiotic shot and when interviewed says he'd play the same shot for the same ball again.

Also, Dav should be sent packing. He has a lot of empty words. Positive talk won't help when the players are pathetic.

C'mon, what a shame to lose to Sri Lanka. Bangladesh is the only side today that will lose to an incompetent team like Sri Lanka.

Are any any people here who respect the Sri Lankans after their thrashing in the 2nd and 3rd VB finals ?

That's why I said it's a damn seaming wicket . I did say Bangladesh will win the toss then why not batting second on this wicket ? There's no brain in our team captain at all .

Masree bowling on both sides of the wicket and wasting some prodiguous swing. Also working up a good head of pace. The rust is evident.

This over. One widish one - late swing away wider.
Next one going down leg.
Next one pitched up on the off.

9.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, wide: no run, short and angling down the
leg side, Sangakkara looking to turn it away fine makes no
contact, appeal for caught behind turned down

Was it close?

How about the Bangladeshi team taking to Kabaddi instead of cricket ? If Bangladesh is to continue in cricket, a rewamp starting from the captain and the coach is necessary.

I would say it's big shame after Srilanka lost so badly against the Aussies in last 2 matches they played . These guys are not playing in the field . Most of them are sleeping already :) So , they are not there to win . Looks like they are there to sleep :)

13.4 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, no run, dropped! good length delivery and
this one came in sharply, Sangakkara pushes forward to defend and
the ball goes off the inside edge, Mashud behind the stumps fails
to hold on to a sitter

Now I have to agree with you. Ponting is right. However much I hate it, I have to admit it. Knowing the Bangladeshis are like this, which top Aussie player would want to spend a month in Bangladesh in the heat and the dust ? There's nothing to inspire them. I won't blame the Aussies now.

relax people.. Sri Lanka is not such a bad team, probably better than India on their day. Like everybody else they have their pace bowler problems, but seriously their record undermines their talent so stop whining!

Seriously our win against Australia has really gotten to some people's heads when in the larger context, it pretty much means nothing.

mahrookh
February 20, 2006, 08:29 AM
If would have made anything over 200 + we would have won today :)

You can't say Srilanka is great team anymore , look at their ranking it's 2 in last year and it's 7 :) So , we never had a better chance like this before . If wanna go for a good team always number one would be Australia and then New Zealand and India . Other teams are noway near of these teams in odi .

It's us who spoiled the show.Our brainless batters are making the same mistakes, they have been making for a LONG time.

When will they learn how to stay in the middle and play????

here are some observations

Rajin in the opening SLOT ,selectors must be kidding??

Changing batting lineup

Batting First ,what they were thinking ??

Slopping fieldings

NOW WE CAN BLAME FOR OUR LONG LAYOFFS

Yes, I think SL did badly towards the end to win by 5 wickets. BD can take this as a positive. - SL did not do badly - they are just getting more and more careless against us - I just hope that our players can take advantage of this in the next few games.

Ei matchta pura faltu chilo.


Reminded me of the times when we expected nothing from our team and didn't even bother to know the match scores.

Let's do some match analysis now:

WE WON THE TOSS AND CHOSE BATTING? Hmm...... guys, remember that "we should get a new captain" thread by me???
This is where it applies.

Our bowling department is our strongest point. Only if the bowlers build the platform , then only our batsmen play well.
Has Bashar mia still not learnt this?

Where's Javed Omar? Only Omar bhai and Nafees should be openers. WE DONT WANT Rajin as opener! What were they thinking!

Aftab should be at no. 5. Send in more experienced batsman duo like Bashar and Ashraful at 3 and 4.

I was surprised that Shujon bhai was taken in the team. Well, ..... oh.... I think it's last game of International cricket.
But whatever, he played the best. I think its a fitting farewell.

I dont like Alok but he did pick up a wicket and did get his score to double figures.

Masharfe and Rasel were however a superb choice and they are indeed a tremendous duo.

And why was Razzak used? He aint a special bowler even!

Didn't get to watch the match today but thinking of watching it free or pay for it for the 2nd game.

If batsman had scored at least 200, we could have won. Bowlers did well. Batsmen let us down .... as usual ! lol

Btw, the suggested lineup for the next game should be:

1 JAVED OMAR
2 SHAHRIAR NAFEES
3 ASHRAFUL
4 HABIBUL BASHAR
5 AFTAB AHMED
6 KHALED MASHUD
7 RAFIQUE
8 NAZMUL HOSSAIN
9 MASHRAFE MORTAZA
10 SYED RASEL

This should get us a win........ ( I think)

End of match analysis.................................

Well Srilanka may have won by only 5 wickets but it was still a hammering basically whether you like it or not. When will Bangaldesh ever beat Srilanka - probably never as Bangladesh will be stripped off their Test Spot just like Zimbabwe should be!

Darwin
February 20, 2006, 11:01 AM
Cant wait for the next 2 ODIs when Srilanka end up winning 3-0 AGAIN! Then its off to the Test Matches where Muralitharan will return and I guess they won't even reach 118 when he's back!

Tell me mate, is hard getting through your daily life with everyone pointing and staring at that knob on your head?

Darwin, whether you are SLn ot a Bangladeshi, you should not forget how SL lost to other sides in the 1980's.
What BD is going through is the same situation.

DARWIN,WHAT is the rush?You keep posting the same thing again and angain and again.

You want a good discussion then wait for people's reply first and then talk.

Looks like you want to beat the drum by yourself no matter what other people says

Calm down and be patient

the ultimate result probably doesnt tell the real story, as the last couple of wickets had no effect on the game, and the Lankans did infact had a fairly easy time to chase down a meagre target as that.

But the way our players batted was nothing less than irresponsible for the most part (yes, irresponsible, yet again...) and THAT is very alarming after this long layoff from international cricket. I personally was very confident of a much more polished and matured batting performance.

Also, the catch that Pilot dropped, it was a sitter. Came straight to him, but Pilot looked like he was in a trance or something ... too slow. - Time to remind Pilot that Mushfiqur Rahim is on his way?


Yes, I think SL did badly towards the end to win by 5 wickets. BD can take this as a positive. - SL did not do badly - they are just getting more and more careless against us - I just hope that our players can take advantage of this in the next few games.

The last 3 wickets of SL fell because they knew the match was already won and were just trying to hit out and finish things off early. You can't count those wickets, really. If one says that had Bangladesh got 180 or so there would have been a match I'd just rubbish it. Had Bangladesh got 180, Sri Lanka would have taken things differently. In spite of 5 wickets, SL won the match with 25 overs to spare. The whole match itself was harldy more than 60 overs. So give credit to Sri Lanka (though I'm not a fan of theirs !!!) -they beat Bangladesh easily, comprehensively and completely humiliated them. IF you still don't know that you havwe a BIG problem.

If you don't face facts, you can't improve.

I am wondering if Whatmore and the psychologists are of any use in the present structure of Bangladeshi cricket. 05 months of wilderness, playing useless, sub-standard cricket and then this. The intelligent people of Bangladesh deserve more than this.
