Africa play

bangladesh need to post a solid score....this is not optional...coz aussies are pumped up after their failure first innings...they will come back nd hit us hard....bangladesh does not have the potential to nail them to 269 again....aftab nd rajin need to work hard...all rest on them..

we cant rely on tail enders to do the job of batsman...

Aftab
Ashraful

Why shoudn't? Any clues?

April 11, 2006, 07:23 AM
Aftab was left in the Sri Lanka series just to get some lessons, as the selectors said. Now we see what lessons he has learnt :)
Anyway, I am quite happy with the partnership, though stupid out always husrts!!

my personal favorite will be ash...he should be left out for his * batting * prowess!
Aussies will be happier to face Nafis - who is not likely to bat for more than two hours or so and make 30 or 40 - rather than Ashraful who could crack a three hour hundred in one of his days.

Had i been BD's coach, I would have slapped Aftab tight on his face after getting out in similar fashion AND similar circumstances TWICE in the same test match. I would also have given him the scolding of his lifetime. Irresponsibility r ekta sheema ase.

His wicket 3 overs before the conclusion of the days play may just cost us the match. To me this may be the turning point. If he had stayed on till stumps, the BD total would have looked 20 runs healthier at the least- with both Aftab and Saleh contributing into the extra 20 runs.

I would think BD has a fighting chance if:
1. They get another 70 runs
2. If they can bat till 2 hours or so after lunch tomorrow

At any cost, Australia should be made to bat on the fifth day with a 230-240 runs target. We may then be able to erase presumptions and start dreaming.

What would you do to our beloved captain for his sprint towards the wicket? Wasn't that the turning point? Ash, aftab would not had to come in the middle today. Aftab is young and will make mistake like such. But Bashar bhai .....

Rabz
April 11, 2006, 08:02 AM
i would have also kicked aftab out....that was simply suicidal..he did the same thing TWICE on one match..even on the first day..he managed to get himself out just before the day's end...

but man..what was habibul doing ?? he might have cost us the match...
had he stayed there...and not taking a stroll in the park wen he cud be the new contender to become in Prime Minister in the upcoming election (!!..how ?? u figure it out)......

that was the difference btw our win n loss in this match...

i'd bring Nafees Iqbal in...kick JO out...yap i said that....even being a JO fan..i'll not have him in the team...his out was just pathetic today....

Id see Aftab for one more match...give him his last opportunity...

r u guys also missing those icons ??

1 mistake is forgivable. Even the best batsmen make mistakes.

2 is not.

F

stickywicket
April 11, 2006, 08:33 AM
He is the most experienced and the captain of the team. It is unforgivable the way he lost his wicket. First of all, there was no need to take a quick single with that shot. Worst of all, the way he was running, it seemed like he was dreaming about the possible win instead of completing the run which should not have been attempted in the first place. His mind just wasn't there and this can possibly cost Bangladesh a win against the Aussies. He just needed to stay at the crease because there are still two days left and BD needs to bat until at least lunch tomorrow to have a chance. It will be tougher now with better half of the batting lineup out but I still hope they win.

Tigers_eye
April 11, 2006, 08:46 AM
No the run was there. it was an easy single. Habibul bashar was the runner and watching the ball and just not concentrating on what he should be doing (finishing the run first). If he had run properly I am sure clark wouldn't even attempt to throw the ball in the first place. By the time clark would have reached the ball Bashar should have been home. If we lose this match the sole blame would be on the captain. The most experienced one no one else. His departure brought Ash and aftab in a crucial juncture when they could not play their natural game. We can not replace bashar but again if we lose I know who should we blame. In Multan it was the umpire not giving out the 11th man out of 10+ appeals.

tiger_man
April 11, 2006, 08:51 AM
lot of stuff happened that are unforgivable....starting with masud missing that gillchrist runout to name a few...
IMO, bangladesh has a slim chance of getting through this one...if it were some other teams say india or pakistan, i would say we stand a very strong chance.....,
one fact stands in our favour and that is aussies never really excelled against us.....it was alwayz expected of them but sth they never accomplished....they lost ODI match last tour of england b4 the ashes...nd everyone thought they wud bowl bd out within 20 overs...
honestly i dunno wat to expect, anything is possible except for a draw...

Take it easy my dear....last 3 days was such that we should back our team....not having these words.....just think what you were thinking abt this match 3 days before and what you have got.......

We are in a possition to win the match till n tomorrow is the 4th day and if we can add another 70 runs....we really can have the result in our favour. Is this the time to say these words to the players of our team??

Tintin
April 11, 2006, 09:19 AM
Before signing off for the day, I have to say that the lack of confidence shown by most of the posters is truly astonishing. The Bangladesh players are having the best game of their lives and people are discussing about the margin of defeat. Some may be telling it just to avoid jinxing the team but it is very disturbing to the reader. It feels as if people are afraid to believe that Bangladesh can play well.

If the players are also feeling the same way as us, they won't need to turn up for the game tomorrow

Ashraful comes at the crease and plays horrific shots to get out. he failed against kenya, and now this test. he was unlucky in 2nd innings but there was no need to be aggressive in the first innings. he was lucky once in mcgill's over, but later got out.

and aftab plays shots in the air. he played 2 good innings against kenya but australia is a different team, and they will utilize our weaknesses.

I am very dissapointed to read some of the comments of the members here. Bangladesh is having there best and toughest test match and till ppl here going after our players.

I give high points to the cricekting knowledge of the members here........i was not really expecting those coments from them

This is best bangladesh has ever played and still the world champs and BD both in the game.....against aussies you have to fight it out till the last ball.....nothing will come easy.....and players are still fighting it out for the win.....what more we should ask for???
In the middle of this best n toughest test till some of them discussing abt dropping players.......radiculus!!!

cricket_pagol
April 11, 2006, 09:48 AM
Agree with you... Bangladesh has played their best game ever so far. We cannot expect Bd players to be flawless. We can criticize our players for their stupid shot selection but lets put that in context of our good performance.

In the second innings, Ashraful was very unlucky and Aftab looked very dumb playing that shot... I am not being too civil here!

Mr-Cricket
April 11, 2006, 09:59 AM
I've only had a brief glance at the posts preceding this one, but the attitude of most of you trully sickens me! True, we did squander a great opportunity to drive this game home, but we are playing Australia! Did you all think this would be a walk in the park? Australia got to the position they are at now not by winning one game, but by dominating the world for well over 10 years. They thrive in these pressure situtions - we are only just learning.

For those of you who think it's in our best interests to drop Ashraful and Aftab - well really I don't think I have to point out how ridiculous you guys sound. They are the two best players for those positions, true, they do need to do more to hold their places, but what we are forgetting is that they (and most of our team for that matter) are still only 20 years old. It will take time for them to mature, and although what Aftab did today was inexcusible, we can't drop players on a whim - I mean why not just drop Bashar for dawdling for that single, or lets just drop JO because someone doesn't like him! Comon guys! Grow up!

We're still in a great position here, and anything above 300 runs to chase on a 4th and 5th day wicket will be exponentially difficult - no matter the opposition. Yes, if we had lost, say, one less wicket today, we would have been in the driving seat - but the game is still ours for the taking. If we can can crawl over 200 runs by lunch tomorrow with Rajin/Mashud & the tail, Australia could really struggle to get the runs on Wednesday afternoon/Thursday morning. 350 runs is not an insubstantial amount!

Stop being so negative! We shouldn't even be in the position we are in at the moment, so be happy that the boys could get us this far - and here's to them getting us over the line! :)

bangladesh team has given us too many heartattacks in the past....nd i nd many other posters believe that this is going to be another one....nd u cant blame us for that....

the margin of defeat as u r talkin about is greatly reduced....australia is looking at a not so very big total to chase.....mind u they are gonna have 1 nd half day....assuming our batsman wont likely last till lunch....nd our bowlers arent very good either.....if it was some other team like england or india, i wud say they have a solid chance of winning , but given its bangladesh, i say we need to post another strong total to win or even draw the game....

i dont like being pessimistic but what can u do??? with a team like bangladesh u got no choice but to be pessimistic.....i wudnt get my hopes up if i were you, not even when victory is 1 run away...

honestly its this mentality that "australia is the worlds best team, so its a big honour that we nearly made them follow on" and "they are the worlds best team, what can we do? atleast we tried our best" thats drowing us nd giving excuses for our losses....
we will never beat australia or any good test team unless we change our mentality nd low profile attitude....
if we dont have the ability to step up against teams like australia or india or sri lanka.....then i am sorry bangladesh doesnt deserve their test status....
getting test status puts us amongst the worlds best...so lets start acting like one nd get rid of that "i am a feaking minnow, i am bound to loose against aussies nd god knows wat" attitude.

tintin and yaseer are right...

all these naysayers, where were you after day 1? cheering and going crazy, right?

well if you knew this was gonna happen, why bothering to cheer? you should have just said it was good, but we are gonna lose.

remember the players never guaranteed or promised us a win, you folks came to that conclusion independtly.

yes it is possible for OZ to win, but its equally possible to have trouble chasing 300+.

will i be dissappointed, if we lose? of course. but try to understand we are a team that has never won a test and we are playing the kings.

we are moving up, slowly in tests (still a phenomenal rate) and even faster in ODIs.

enjoy what success you get, folks cuz our days of winning are just around the corner.

DotBall
April 11, 2006, 11:49 AM
I just had to say few things here.....
<o></o>
- BD won 1 test out of 42.
- Some 20+ matches were lost by an inning.
- Last home series we took both games to 4<sup>th</sup> day and beyond (but we lost).
- We beat AUS in ODI (big confidence)
- AUS is the #1 team in the world (both Test and ODI)
- We dominated them in the first 2 days (beyond anybody’s imagination in this forum)
- Aussies came back on the 3<sup>rd</sup> day and that was expected (no team walked over this Aussie outfit lately like we did)
- 2-3 of our best batsmen are still very immature and young, but we have good bowlers to fight hard.
- We missed out in 2003 beating PAK. We have a similar opportunity here, but need to respond to pressure.
<o></o>
Now, reading some posts here I see a lot fans show the same characters we always accuse our players of having (inconsistency, playing rash shots, not thinking, not pushing the limit, pessimistic, etc.)
<o></o>
It is a tense match and the situation is alien to us. We as fans need to learn to handle the situation and back our team. Being positive is the only way to come out as winner. And even if we loose this match we will still be winner over the Aussies for 2 days and we will take that confidence to next game.
<o></o>
I hope so much that BD will win this match, but I don’t wish for us to win it comprehensively (Aussies won’t let it happen anyway). A hard fought win will do 100 times more for us than an easy win. It is hard to keep our (fans) cool in these tense situations but if you don’t develop a stomach for this then I have to say you are missing out a lot.
<o></o>
Come on guys lets cheer for our players. They have taken us this far, we can cheer them to go further…..

Man, you got so much pissed off that you sounded exactly like Ponting. What a shame!!
Come on! You should be thankful to our team to give you the first 2 days. It could have been worse.
I used to react this way 4/5 years back. But now I believe in my team. To me Bangladesh is the best team in the world. And I can guarantee you in the next 5 to 10 years any team in the world will spoil their pants hearing the name of the tigers. If I live that far, inshaallah I will see that Bangladesh. When I talk to my friends from the subcontinent about the performance of my team it makes me so proud. We have been oppressed by the British then Pakistanis for so many years that we lost our self respect. That's why when I see my country playing so good against world class teams, it just brings tears to my eyes. Believe me, I get so much emotional when I see my country rising her head among the best in the world.
All the players in our team are much younger than me. When I see these little kids facing the giants of the time, it is simply beyond my expectation. The innocent look on their faces fills my heart with tremendous joy. I know they will shine like bright dazzling sun in the sky one day. So please do not despair and do not give up. I will inshaallah be the proud citizen of the country that will dominate the cricket world like no one has done before.
Friend, that day is not too far. So cheer up. :)
May God always be with my team.

ps. I have been waiting for the day when the Tigers will thrash the Brits. That will be the best day of my life.

April 11, 2006, 12:42 PM
Don't get us wrong who are bashing the players. I can't speak for anyone but for myself. First of all, Bangladesh did something that nobody even imagined. They deserve our cheers and praises. All I am saying is that an experienced, mature and with the responsibility of captain, Habibul Bashar should have been more mindful - for God sake, we only had an hour or so left when he was runout for the day. He may have been tired from 3 days of play in the heat but that's no excuse. I am no way implying that player should be dropped. Most of these player - young and veterans - can and will make mistakes and that's how people learn. However, seeing how close they are from the precious victory, Habibul Bashar should have been more careful. All I was asking is for him to run not walk when the ball was so close. It even seemed like he waited and watched the ball for a fraction of a second as the ball was hitting the stumps instead of worrying about landing his bat on the ground. This is not asking much. I don't blame Ash because his lbw was unfortunate and should not have given. As far as Aftab - he is young , he is learning and I am sure he was following the lead of his captain!!

Tigers have done exceptional but after 40 some tests and being on top and seeing the victory right before their eyes, at least the captain should have been more mindful and I am sure that would have had some affect on his players who some of us are blaming.

Friends, trust me BD is not going to lose the match!!

Bangladesh just nedd 60 odd run to add with the overnight score. Then our lead will be 342. For your information highest succesful run chase in sub continent is 326 by Srilanka against Zimbabwe and 314 by Pakistan against Australia. So its not going to be easy for Australia to chase this run at low slow turning track.

I am quite sure Bangladesh can score 60 more run tomorrow.

So all the best and lets beside the team. Don't bash them please.

ahms
April 11, 2006, 01:13 PM
Inshallah, we will win. Our players shouldn't think we have enough on the board. They should try as hard as possible. Ash was unlucky but basher and aftab played very silly & amature respectively.

Win or Loss, Congratulation to Team, Coach, and Management for bringing cricket thus far. They should continue in this form, in second test as well.

May Allah grant us victory, ameen.

if anyone would've told me before the test start that we will go into the fourth day with 282 runs lead, I would laugh it of... so guys just relax and enjoy... whatever happens, you should be proud of our boys... eventhough they whitewashed kenya, i was kinda skeptical about their progress but watching them play against aussies cleared all the doubt for me.... give them another two years and they will really rock it.... i am sure we will put some runs on the board tomorrow and aussies have to work really hard to win this game.... we are not giving it up that easily

if somehow we happen to put 100 more runs today , that would be good enough to make Aussies struggle. We should go for the win. Inshallah, we will achieve victory and that would be another BIG UPSET !!!

Inshallah, we will win. Our players shouldn't think we have enough on the board. They should try as hard as possible. Ash was unlucky but basher and aftab played very silly & amature respectively.

Win or Loss, Congratulation to Team, Coach, and Management for bringing cricket thus far. They should continue in this form, in second test as well.

May Allah grant us victory, ameen.

Aftab must be dropped in the second test

:mad: ... i dont know what ur logic is but nothing can convince be tht aftab needs to be dropped.... infact him being dropped in the sri lanka series was a bad decision .... which is y i think he is not playing his normal game .. he is indecisive in his approach.... whiel his natural instinct is to attack he doesnt thinking abt the consequence and ends up playing neither here nor there... he shud be left alone and ppl shud let him play his natural game ... obviously the coach dn the maangement will talk to him if he gets out playing rash shots .... but they shud not stop him frm playing attacking cricket.... he shud be playing his natural game minus the rash shots ... dropping him will only be bad for his confidence and make him more confused.... aftab is the player who has the proper technique and the ability to be one of bangladesh's great finds .... nd if given the proper amount of chances he will shine through.. he is only 20 for god's sake .... i knw my next statement might come as a bit out of this world but this is the truth .... shahriar nafees has a terrible technique..... he neeeds to work on tht to make sure he is a more successful player ... his inclusion is fine since he is performing but if he doesnt work on his technique he wont be able to be successful for long ..... instead of messing a player like aftab ppl shud try nd rectify shariar nafees's technique which wud be for the best of BD cricket since this guy without technique is scoring runs which shows his grit and determination...just leave aftab alone .....

ASA
April 11, 2006, 04:08 PM
he is indecisive in his approach.... whiel his natural instinct is to attack he doesnt thinking abt the consequence and ends up playing neither here nor there... he shud be left alone and ppl shud let him play his natural game ... obviously the coach dn the maangement will talk to him if he gets out playing rash shots .... but they shud not stop him frm playing attacking cricket.... he shud be playing his natural game minus the rash shots ...

This is test cricket - and it requires a lot patience and concentration along with talents. If your 'natural game' does not match with the requirements of that - you should be playing ODIs. as simple as that. I don't doubt the talents of Aftab (and Ash for that matter) - but what is that really producing for the team? In the first innings, it still could have been tolerated because the top order already produced a good chunk of runs - but what was the excuse this time?

I think bd should play in a more aggressive batting style. I noticed our batsman dont score as much if they score very slow. They should play in a more aggressive batting style; meaning keeping the RR:4 or 4.5 from here on... We've lost 5 wickets and we dont have any good batsman left (except for rajin). Khaled Mashud should be more agressive and try to put some runs up the board. If they play slow, they can take time but we'll score even less.
what do u guys think?

IanW
April 11, 2006, 04:17 PM
The lead is 282 runs, and Australia have to bat again, against Haque and Rafique.

From now on, every run counts double.

Snick through vacant slips for two, counts as four.

Drive through covers, thats eight.

No ball, counts as two.

Becuase they have to get what they got in the first innnings, and then they have to go get some more.

250 isnt easy when you're batting last. 282 is a challenge. Anything over 300 is outright hard.

Someone tell me how many times Australia chased 282 batting last on the subcontinent ?

So far in this test, there's a big difference beteween playing in the morning session and post tea session; no matter who played. BD batted well in the 1st day morning and then collapsed in the afternoon. Again they stayed for a while in the second day morning until that collapse. Aussies collapsed in the second day afternoon and did well in the 3rd day morning. BD collapsed on the third day afternoon.
Tomorrow (4th day) morning BD will stay in the middle for a while. Pilot will be there for a while although he won't score 20. This time either Mash or Rafiq will score 30 and BD will go past 200. Aussies will collapse 4th day afternoon targeting 350+. The whole matter will then depend on the 5th day morning performance.

Guys what about swapping the postion between Aftab and Bashar in the next test ? Bsahar plays spin very well atleast much much betetr than Aftab, also Aftab can play his natural attacking game at no 3. Any thoughts ?

roaring tigerz
April 11, 2006, 04:31 PM
The key to our success in Day-4 is if we have the self belief that we can pull this off. If the lead is anything under 400 ( which seems very likely), the Australians would go for a win. Hayden, Ponting and co are all strokemakers and they would aim to target our key weapons-the spinners.
But the 4th and 5th day pitch will deteriorate even further. The crumbling pitch will produce increasing variable bounce and sharp turn.
So how we encounter the aussie aggression and sustain pressure on their batsmen will be important.
Bashar has a big role to play in the 4th innings. When the batsmen score freely Bashar has often been reactive rather than proactive. How he marshals his troops will also be interesting to see.

bdcricfan
April 11, 2006, 05:03 PM
Of course, the more we score, the better chance we have in this match. However, we have to admit that we are playing against Aussies, who are the best. None of us like to see if we can't perform well. However, we have to be optmistic and realistic at the same time. The match is no where over and we need to believe that even if we can just 18 more runs then we will inshallah be able to fight to defend that total (300+). We can't think about the great batsmen like Pontin, Hussey, Clark, Gilchrist, etc. We have to just play wtih our 100% ability and take all the opportunities that may arrive for us and just don't think about the big names.

We desperately need to win. This sort of opportunity comes very rarely. May Allah bless us.

madash
April 11, 2006, 05:14 PM
The order/strategy whatmore and bashar should be telling rajin and pilot is that play 120 runs in a slow rate, to bat the whole day tomorrow.......and then after that target is achieved then start slogging. in that case we will waste most of the day and leave the aussies with aminimal chance of victory. because as bdcricfan put it, they are the best side in the world and they might actually be able to achieve a target of near 400 if they have a day and a half to bat. so they should go slow initially to attain 120+ runs tomorrow and if Allah is kind enough we build a heavier lead. Having a lead of 400+ at the end of the 4th day is surely not a lost for us. Anyhow, may the good Lord bless our players and give them the patience so that they can bat out the juggernauts.
May Allah be with the players tomorrow and the day after.

i agree 100% tht natural talent without performance is of no good .... nd all i m saying is tht aftab has not even played 10 test matches yet... more importantly he has been in and out of the test side .... this does not do his confidence ne good ... makes him confuse abt his game ... nd wen he gets the chance he plays awkwardly.... did u see his batting against england in the test match where he scored 81*.... he was playing his natural game which is attacking .... all i m saying is ppl shud let him play his natural game and give him a long run .... if a player like him finds his footing then he will be an asset to the BD team like no other.... however if he still fails then the selectors can drop him ... however i firmly believe this kid will deliver if given the proper opportunity... he does not slog to attack but plays cricketing shots...

If u cant play like a test match as it should...u shouldnt come to test. If u dont have temperment u shouldnt included in the test. I meant Ash and Aftab.

the way bd team is playing now, i am sure they will take a lead of 350 odd runs. but the way aussies are coming back in this game, they should chase the 350 runs with losing 7 or 8 wickets. Gilly will play hard again in the second innings just as what injamam did to us in multan.

at this point we need some miracle to save this match i afraid.. :mad:

layperson
April 11, 2006, 07:00 PM
regarding the match situation i feel tht nething above 300 is a fighting score and if we get a lead of over 400 then i am sure we will win ....even if the aussies have one and a half days to bat ...... lets not see the rank of the teams but try nd analyse this from a proper perspective.... chasing over 400 in the fourth innings in this sort of a wicket means it will be risky .... u hv to attack if u want to chase 400 in a day ..in this wicket if they attack the spinners we will hv a greater chance of getting wickets..... since the aussies r too proud they will never play for a draw.... so i think our chances for a win r still very bright provided we can give them a total of 400 nd over to chase..... even if the total is 350 nd more we can make a fight of it.... the key will be to keep wickets intact tomorrow nd also to score runs... i dnt want bd team to bat all day tomorrow .... it wud be best if we cud bat till after tea.... nd then declare with nd hour nd half left in the last session .... during tht time if we caa pick up a wicket or two which is very likely we will be in the driving seat on the fifth day ..all this provided if we can stick to the wicket tht long....but frm where we stand right now i think we still hv a good chance in this test match.. good luck to the Tigers...

Ian, i am 2nd to you only, in terms of optimism for this match...but even then i won't believe our chances of winning until we actually pull it off.

id say its 50-50 right now, unless bangladesh collapse. if we post more than 350 our odds increase, but up to then 50-50.

Gilchrist said while Bangladesh was in a commanding position, Australia had fought back well to give itself a chance of claiming victory.
"It is going to be a very good match," he said. "(Although) they have a pretty handy lead, we are getting ourselves back into the match."

Bangladeshi vice-captain Khaled Mashud said the hosts were determined to build on their lead.
"We are still in a sufficiently good position," he said. "Our aim is 125 more runs to set a good challenge for the visitors."

To those who are blaming Aftab for playing irresponsible shot blame the selector. He is not a test player put him in middle of nowhere position. Naturally he is an attacking player. So he is curbing his instinct to prove selectors that he is a test player. Once he bogged down he started to think that he has too little againest his name after spending so much time in the crease. so suddenly he tried to increase the tempo and got out in irresponsible shot. Still he was partner in two of the mini recovery (56 and 47 runs).

In this test match, yes.

By the way, how often have Australia chased 300 on the subcontinent and won ?

It's a very defensible target. And about 300 more than you'd been predicting they'd chase.

300 looks big matie boy.

Anyway, it is now 297...keeps goin' down matie boy...

Just like I said, the tail sucks. Well, we have a 300+ lead. I think we're still in a commanding position.

Bowl wicket to wicket. No loose balls. Then hand it over to Rafique and Enamul, and just enjoy the ride.

Australia needs a very god opening stand. An early wicket is what the Tigers need - that'll severely dent the Aussie psyche.

Come on guys, we haven't lost the match yet. Let's hope for the best. It won't finish today - 300+ is hard to get on any day of a test against any team (specially in the 4th innings). The fast bowlers should bowl till the ball looses its shine. You can't just ask Rafiq and Enam to bowl over after over, they are humans too - they'll get tired.

Better now than never. I was referring more to Rafique - and the laquer on the ball has already started to wear off - it shouldn't be too difficult to grip the ball for a spinner at this stage. Regardless, we need a breakthrough before this lunchbreak!

I'm not too keen on Masri at the moment - to tell you the truth. He may be bowling economically, but he's still not bowling a good line (a few too many straying down leg side). Shahahahadat looks far likelier to take a wicket at this stage. I'd go with him and Rafique in tandem for the next 10 minutes.

I'm praying Bashar doesn't feel the urge to bring on another part-timer, the last over before the break - he's brought on Ashraful for a return of 11 runs, and then Saleh for 5 more. It's just not worth it. Why not use your best bowlers when you have the chance. Going back to the pavilion with easy runs to your name will only build your confidence.

ahaMhkoor
April 12, 2006, 12:52 AM
Bashar has to think outside the box now ! Bring on Rafique to bowl alongside Mortaza. Go for a wicket before they reach 50. That'll surely put the Aussies on the ddfensive, bring back the dull, scary feeling of their first innings...

Mortaza has caused some fear in the minds of the Aussies. He shoyld bowl on. At the other end, Rafique could come in. He's one helluva spiiner. The unsung hero of Bangladeshi cricket.

Having to deal with these two extremely different deils will make it difficult for the Aussies...

An early wicket ten, before they get 50, will make them panic...

Then Enamul could join the fray, and turn the ball square.

Well, at lunch Australia 31/0. First over from Enamul is really impressive. Now after lunch we need to contnue attack with spin at one end and few overs from fast bowlers and bring another spinner.

But I am afreaid, Bashar will start with two quicks and will allow the aussie batsmen to settle
