View Full Version : First bowling change for Bangladesh while fielding

February 22, 2006, 02:50 PM
Like all other teams, Bangladesh opens the bowling with two pacers. And then always has a problem for the first change in bowling.

Yesterday’s ODI (2nd ODI against SL) was not an exception. When Nazmul came as a first bowling change, he blew up what the first two bowlers accomplished with their very good bowling. In two overs Nazmul gave up lot of runs and changed the momentum of the game in SL’s favor.

To remedy the situation, I think BD should try the followings:

1. Replace Nazmul with some other pacers like Rajib
2. Try Tapash if he is available
3. Follow the strategy of the U-19, start the bowling with 2 pacers and then put a flurry of SLAs like Rafique, Rana and Kapali.

Please give your thought.

Tapash may be better than Naz but no way he shld come. Rajib shld come and support us but he still needs to improve a lot...

If this was a one-off bad day, persist with Nazmul.

A bad day at work shouldn't translate to being dropped.
