Nye is heading for a century...

Forget winning, let's hope we can pull a draw.

It is possible. And looks like they are going for it.

Golla just hit 3 4s in the 2nd over.

Hey every one, I know some of you are watching this cricket match live, But I am just watching the update on the net.

Any way from the commentry so far I like the way guys are batting. Not chashing any wrong balls.

I think what Dav said was, forget about winning this game, just show me your tempo of batting from this match, cause 170 odd runs is nothing to score, if you are in One day mode. from 70 overs.

Any thoughts?

Bangladesh scored 91/2 in 30.3 overs requiring 139 runs to win in 40.3 overs with 8 wickets in hand.

Hannan Sarkar and Mohammad Ashraful are at the crease. Yesterday's hero Javed Omar and Habibul Bashar are the men out. The required run rate is around 3.3 / 3.5 and Bangladesh run rate is over 3.

My opinion is it is easier for the players - Hannan, Ashraful, Sanwar, Kapali, Pilot, Sujon, Rafique to go for the runs rather than survival. If Javed Omar and Habibul Bashar were there at the crease batting till the end of the day and were told to stay at the crease for the whole day (then it would have been possible), then a draw would have been more likely.

But not with the youngsters. They just don't have the patience to spend a whole day batting individually.

That's a good advice, where did Dave said that?

Looking on the individual performance, Javed Omar and Habibul Bashar could not finish their jobs which they started wonderfully by scoring 59 and 99 respectively in the first innings.

And just now Hannan Sarkar got out after scoring just 23. We really have got some big problem on our hands. So far, only one opener is performing in this tour and the other is just not performing.

Nonetheless, it was a good 71 run partnership inside 24 overs between Ashraful and Hannan.

78 runs needed with 5 wickets remaining...I am getting very nervous.

I dont want to say anything - just in case i jinx the team. All i can say is: I am glued to the cricinfo live scoreboard.

Ferguson to Khaled Mashud, five runs, lofted over mid wicketa good
return bails off, not out, but wait there's more, the keeper shies
at the bowler's end and misses and two overthrows there for the

It seems that Alok Kapali is mighty nervous!

I think Kapali heard Fahmida and smashed couple of fours to get voer the nervousness .. lol! This is indeed turning out to be exciting. But we are still quite far from target. They have to guard wickets at least another 7/8 overs before going into slog mode. I doubt they can do that.

Khaled Mashud c b Ferguson 28 (34b 4x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

He's the experienced guy, he should have been at the crease helping out Kapali.

Khaled Mahmud is probably the worst person to be in the crease now...

Totally out of form...

I hope he proves me wrong!

64.2 Magoffin to Khaled Mahmud, FOUR, awful looking hook shot, top edge and over everyone and down to the sight screen

64.3 Magoffin to Khaled Mahmud, FOUR, glorious looking cover drive

This guy is scaring me...

I don't know why it is taking a full 70 overs to get these runs. They just haven't learned to take 1s and 2s. Everyone wants to hit a 4, nothing less. Unless the bowling was exceptional, this match should not have been this tight. Then again the Academy took a risk by declaring before lunch. I guess both sides wanted to go for it, a draw is meanigless anyway.

66.5 Magoffin to Alok Kapali, OUT: gets a top edge to a drive and falls
straight into the hands of mid off

of course we can lose fro here...in fact i think we will...we just lost Alok Kapali.

Hope Kapali learns his lessons from his out in this match - getting out at such a vital time! :(

I believe they said the match may last an extra 2 overs than what was stated. Typically batsmen decide if they want to continue. So its possible we still had another extra over remaining after this. Habibul_fan may have mroe details.

This is a historic moment in Bangladesh cricket. We have our first victory on aussie soil....may this be the first of many.....AMEEN! Much respect goes out to all the BD players who focussed on building partnerships, generally kept their heads cool and achieved what they set out to do. This will have immense postive impact on our players and on their game hopefully.

GO BANGLADESH! After a long time I have taken unqualified pleasure in Tigers' performance. Keep it up Boys! there is still a lot left to do.

Thank you DAV WHATMORE :)

So Bangladesh win a nail biter, some good batting along with some good tight bowling. Bangladesh should have taken a lot more easy singles that would have broken the field up a bit, however congratulations on a game well won.

Can u beleive it? We actually won something!!Doesnt matter if it is CBCA..its a win...oh sweet victory

Horrible from BD.....if it was extended for another day they would have been thrashed......Bangladesh had 14 wickets to fall and CBCA had 7. Therefore in my mind CBCA won by 7 wickets

well it's good to win, but I don't share a lot of excitement over this. They took 72 overs to chase 230 against the Academy, for God's sake! The Academy did not have to declare when they did, they could have kept batting for another 2 days if they wanted to. I really expected a bit more fire in this second innings from bangladesh, and a last ball victory over the Academy is not what you expect from a Test team.

Neverthless, a win is a win and there were plenty of good performances on our side. We just need to take this with a grain of salt.

fwullah
July 5, 2003, 03:30 AM
rafiq, that's why I said the match to be a confidence boosting win and not a great win in another thread.

Good thing about this win is that Ashraful had his fifty which meant something i.e., which counted for something. Alok Kapali scored some useful runs and also got rid of his nervousness for sometime, but could not just get there himself.

Above all, they could hold their nerves even though the opposition consists of a bunch of schoolboys.
